At the City of Miramar Commission meeting on November 1, 2017, the adoption of amendments to various portions of the Land Development Code (“LDC”) focused on zoning and use regulations, created a new chapter in the Code entitled Chapter 4, "Zoning", and amended previously adopted Chapters 2 and 3. These transactions proactively emphasize the development of smaller and therefore less expensive, buildings; that have the potential to lead to lower housing costs.

It is important to note that these amendments are part of a larger City initiative to update the entire LDC. The current LDC was adopted in 1996 and provided a framework for rapid development over the last 21 years.

An expansive task, these amendments are being completed in phases to promote form-based urban design and incorporate Smart Growth principles; endorse sustainability and food systems policy; embrace standards and uses that enhance the City's economic development, generate redevelopment and infill development opportunities; eliminate and minimize conflicts; minimize the need for variances; and incorporate user-friendly language, graphics and tables to enhance readability and usability.
