Design & Development Regulations
The ability to successfully draft zoning ordinances and design standards that bring about a desired land development goal is a rare skill–one that Clarke Caton Hintz has in abundance. Every master or comprehensive plan, corridor study, historic district plan or redevelopment plan needs regulations for proper implementation. The new wave of ordinances is increasingly oriented towards design issues. New advances in digital graphics have brought the cost of producing pictorial examples of desired building types, streetscapes and landscape elements within the reach of even the smallest municipality. From the drafting of zoning ordinances, subdivision and site plan review ordinances, procedures for application submission, tree protection and landscape design standards, sign and lighting ordinances, historic preservation regulations, or a host of other land development legislation, Clarke Caton Hintz has a wide range of expertise to efficiently craft effective ordinances.
