Orange County Considers Temporary Pause On New Development Applications

05/06/2024 5:31 PM | Debbie Colangelo-Admin (Administrator)

A vote on an ordinance that would temporarily stop new development applications in unincorporated regions of Orange County until a final vote on the new Vision 2050 comprehensive plan is held in the fall is anticipated later this month by the Orange County Board of County Commissioners.

During a work session on April 9, the Board of County Commissioners talked about the Orange Code update and the current countywide comprehensive plan. The Board asked planning staff to draft a "zoning-in-progress ordinance" during the meeting; commissioners will vote on it at their subsequent meeting on May 21.

If approved on May 21, the ordinance would immediately stop accepting new development applications in selected regions until the end of September, when the final vote on Vision 2050 and the Orange Code is scheduled to occur.

The ordinance will apply to new applications, and that most existing applications already submitted will not be affected. Even if the Board passes the ordinance on May 21, existing applications submitted before that date will continue to move through the review process. For months, the County has notified applications about the changes coming to the review process.
