The City of Crystal Lake has adopted a collection of land development regulations and published them as our Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).
A UDO is more than a collection of chapters from the zoning, subdivision, sign and tree preservation ordinances. Rather, the goal of consolidating the various ordinances into a UDO is to provide:
- A single document rather than multiple, conflicting, ordinances.
- A uniform set of consistent definitions.
- Procedures that follow the normal sequences of development.
- A coordinated system for development review and enforcement.
