Century Applies For Grant To Finish Updates To Land Development Code

April 25, 2018

The Town of Century is applying for a state grant to complete an updated to their Land Development Code (LDC).

In 2016, the town received a $25,000 Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity that was used to updated five chapters of the LDC.

If the town receives an additional grand, it will be used to update portions of the LDC that were adopted in 1991, prepare a zoning map and offset the cost of publishing the changes.

Monday night, the town voted to allow the Nickles Consulting group to apply for the grant on their behalf. Public meetings will be held prior to the approval of LDC changes.
