Lesson 4.1 – Adopt The New Code

Adopt The New Code:

After developing the draft ordinance, your municipality’s legislative body (council members) has the opportunity to make any changes they deem necessary. Remember: The new code regulating ADUs can only be adopted by your community’s legislative body (council members) in a properly-noticed public hearing. 

Action Items:

  1. Provide formal public notice of the adoption meeting/hearing. Be sure to include links to where copies of the draft ordinance can be obtained.
  2. Conduct the public hearing. Gather final thoughts and comments before adoption. Remember the legislative body must formally vote for its adoption. 
  3. Once adopted, remove any unnecessary formatting (line numbers, unofficial headers/footers, page numbers, etc) before replace any old code materials with the new ones.
  4. Reference CiviclinQ’s Sample Notice Language for Electronic Meetings resource in the “Materials” tab before conducting your public meetings/hearings online.
