At their June 14 formal meeting, Greenville City Council approved the contract to revise the City’s Land Management Ordinance (LMO).
In February 2021, Council adopted the GVL2040 Comprehensive Plan. The long-range plan includes recommendations on future land use with a focus on neighborhood preservation, affordable housing, mobility, open spaces and economic development. The City’s current LMO is incompatible with those recommendations and requires substantial revision.
After a competitive bid process, the City selected the firm czbLLC to complete the LMO rewrite. The process is expected to take a team of planning professionals approximately 18 months and will include significant public input. The GVL2040 Comprehensive Plan is a “high level” guidebook that calls for future development in pockets with connecting corridors. The LMO contains the specific regulatory language that defines zoning for all property in the City.
