Town of Bluffton Unified Development Ordinance
LOCATION: Bluffton, South Carolina
CLIENT: Town of Bluffton
DATE: August 2011
The Town of Bluffton, SC used a transect-based land use approach when overhauling their zoning, subdivision, and other planning codes into one set of regulations -- the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). These regulations cover aspects of the built environment, including what different types of land uses can be constructed (single family, stores, offices etc.), size, height and placement of buildings, how much parking is needed and standards for its design, design standards for landscape, lighting and signs, and the design of stormwater management and utilities. Naomi served as the graphic consultant on the interdisciplinary team and her responsibilities included all the hand-drawn graphic diagrams throughout the code. Please visit the Town of Bluffton's Website to view and download the entire UDO.
