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.

 

In addition, staff has identified County Code Chapter 7, Health and Safety, as one of the final chapters whose references to the former development departments and officers requires updating.  The updates to Article I, Noise, of Chapter 7 are included as part of a draft ordinance that would comprehensively amend Article I that is scheduled for public hearing on July 1, 2009.    The attached proposed ordinance (Attachment A) would amend Article II, Naming of Roads and Numbering of Properties, of Chapter 7.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

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

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Section 7-201 of the County Code currently designates the “director of planning and community development” as the County’s agent under the County’s road naming and property addressing program.  The proposed ordinance would amend section 7-201 to revise that reference to the “director of planning” so that it conforms to current department names, officer titles and assignments.     

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

None

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

After conducting a public hearing, staff recommends that the Board adopt the attached ordinance.
