16 May Beaufort Code – Update, Please Read and Respond with questions
May 9 Update of the Beaufort Code
The city has published a new draft of the Beaufort Code. The draft considered comments heard during the month of April, both at the 4 open public input sessions, as well as via the online form. All of this information may be found on the Beaufort Code page of the city’s website.
To accompany the code update, an updated list of Public Comments heard through May 9, along with a bulleted list of changes between the April 7 and May 9 versions has been provided.
The Next Step. The Metropolitan Planning Commission will have their first work session to review the code on May 16. The complete review schedule can be found on our website.
Comment Online. There is a simple comment form so you can give us your comments. All comments we receive online and hear in the meetings has been posted on our website, along with comments from staff and a proposal for how to address them. There will also be notes of how the comments were incorporated into the new draft once that is published.
Is this all new to you? Here’s what’s going on: The City of Beaufort Planning Department hosted a series of public meetings to review a draft of the Beaufort Code – an update to the city’s development code. This new code has been in the works for several years, and in March we held a one-month, 15-meeting public review process that generated over 200 comments from the public. In April, we published a new draft and held 4 meetings to review and hear comments on that draft. Those comments were incorporated into a new draft, released May 9. The May 9 draft, along with other resources can be found on the Beaufort Code page of the city’s website.
