Zoning Ordinance Updates

The Coconino County Zoning Ordinance is amended periodically to respond to new and changing land uses and conditions.  Recent projects include the 2019 update, a significant update that was coordinated with the Community Development Advisory Group (CDAG).  Click here to view a summary of the 2019 changes.  

In May, 2022 a new amendment was approved to add Section 3.19, Utility Scale Renewable Energy Systems, to the zoning ordinance.  This update added application requirements, performance standards and definitions to regulate the development of large renewable energy projects such as wind, solar and biomass.  

Also approved in 2022 was a change to the zoning ordinance that removed the Floodplain Management Overlay Zone from the zoning ordinance to create a standalone document called the Coconino County Floodplain Management Regulations.  Click here to view that document.
