BACKGROUND:

The phased reorganization of the former Department of Planning and Community Development, Department of Zoning Services and Department of Engineering and Public Works into a single Department of Community Development began July 1, 2003.  Since the reorganization, amendments to the County’s Subdivision, Water Protection and Zoning Ordinances have updated references to the former departments and officers as substantive changes were made to those ordinances.  The updates to the Subdivision and Water Protection Ordinances are completed.  The updates to the Zoning Ordinance are ongoing as sections of that ordinance are substantively amended.

 

Staff has identified two other chapters of the Albemarle County Code whose references to the former development departments and officers require updating – Chapter 3, Agricultural and Forestal Districts and Appendix A-1, Acquisition of Conservation Easements Program.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 1:  Enhance the Quality of Life for all Albemarle County Residents

 

DISCUSSION:

The two proposed ordinances would amend Chapter 3 and Appendix A-1 of the Albemarle County Code to revise the references to County departments and officers so that they conform to current department names, officer titles and assignments.     

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

None

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board set June 10, 2009 public hearings for the two attached ordinances.

 

ATTACHMENTS:

A - Proposed Ordinance (Chapter 3)

B - Proposed Ordinance (Appendix A-1)
