Delaware County Planning offers model ordinances that serve as guides for municipalities looking to update their current ordinances.
After working with municipalities, the Delaware County Planning Department often identifies a need for further guidance on complex topics. Often, municipalities request help in ensuring that their ordinances are compliant with new standards and techniques in the field. To address this need, the Planning Department has created several plans and models to assist municipal leaders in updating and maintaining their current ordinances. These guides can be found below.
