The Lynchburg Zoning Ordinance was adopted by City Council in 1978. Since that time, portions of the ordinance have been updated, but there has not been a major rewrite. As time and practices changed over the years, both the Planning Commission and City Council, as well as city staff has found the original ordinance outdated and somewhat difficult to apply to today’s world.
After countless meetings, discussions, and hours of staff work, the City of Lynchburg’s Community Development Department has released a draft of the newly rewritten Zoning Ordinance document.
Please visit the Community Development Homepage to view a draft of the ordinance, a summary of changes, and a schedule of public meetings.
