Project Description

Mintier Harnish assisted the Merced County with a comprehensive update of the Zoning Code to address changes in Federal and State law and to implement the newly adopted General Plan.  The Code update project focused on preserving agriculture and open space; promoting sustainable development patterns; creating modern development standards to address best planning practice; and enhancing the local economies and jobs.

The Update included development of a fully interactive, web-based Zoning Code. The Code is now fully accessible, easy to navigate, and searchable and allows cross-references to be linked, eliminating the need to jump back and forth to look for applicable zoning and development provisions.
