What is a Development Ordinance?
The Development Ordinance is the City’s official document that regulates growth and development. It includes zoning, subdivision, and environmental regulations that govern the location, size, and appearance of new development and redevelopment projects in High Point and its extra-territorial jurisdiction (land outside the City limits but still subject to the City’s Development Ordinance). The Development Ordinance includes such provisions as zone district regulations, development review procedures, and development standards such as those covering parking, landscaping, building setbacks, size, and appearance. A link to the City’s current Development Ordinance can be found in the Work Products link on the home page of this site. Please call 336-883-3328 for more information.
