Public hearing set for amendments to McHenry County's Unified Development Ordinance

WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing to discuss amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance.

The hearing will start at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the McHenry County Administration Building in Conference Room C, and will continue at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the same room, according to a news release.

The Unified Development Ordinance regulates land use in unincorporated McHenry County.

The amendments under consideration apply to all of unincorporated McHenry County and do not specifically address any single property.

The amendments aim to better organize the ordinance and make it easier to use, eliminating conflicting sections, aligning text with current interpretations and reducing regulation where possible, according to the release.

Amendments can be viewed online. Residents also can view the changes in person at the Department of Planning and Development in Room 208 of the Administration Building, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock.

For information regarding the amendments or the hearing process, contact deputy director Darrell Moore at 815-334-4560 or dnmoore@co.mchenry.il.us.
