Unified Development Ordinance


With a construction rebound from the 2008 recession underway in Yorkville, commercial and residential development has boomed since 2013 with new construction permits averaging 120 per year for the past 5 years. The United City of Yorkville has begun the process of drafting a Unified Development Ordinance to consolidate all the City’s development ordinances into a single document to meet the needs of our growing community.  A Unified Development Ordinance, or UDO, combines traditional zoning and subdivision regulations, along with other  city regulations into a single document.  The City is seeking to create an easy to use document which combines the Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Regulations, Landscape Ordinance, and Appearance Code.  

We encourage everyone to visit to stay up to date on the project:
