The City of Rome and Floyd County aims to update their ULDC (or Unified Land Development Code) and seeks input from locals. A community kickoff event is slated for this evening in person at the Rome Civic Center, as well as virtually via Zoom. The public is encouraged to attend in order to learn about the ULDC and share ideas.

Consultants from Town Planning and Urban Design Collaborative, LLC, will provide assistance with this project, according to a city-county media release. The end result will be a document that is understandable and implementable, and that helps the community achieve the goals set forth in the Rome-Floyd Cave Spring 2040 Comprehensive Plan.

Tonight’s community kick off event will take place from 6:30 pm until 8 pm at the Rome Civic Center, 400 Civic Center Drive. Those who prefer to join the meeting virtually may register in advance via Zoom.

Rome Mayor Craig McDaniel asserts that the ULDC revision is expected to take about 18 months; it’s geared toward promoting growth and development in Rome and Floyd County. McDaniel, a local real estate agent, believes that the current document may have inhibited growth in the past 20-25 years.
