Unified Development Ordinance
The purpose of the Unified Development Ordinance, or UDO, is to create a comprehensive set of land development standards and regulations which is consistent with Matthews' "Our Town, Our Vision", the Matthews Land Use Plan, and other community development policies. The UDO includes provisions for zoning, subdivision, floodplain management, post construction storm water design, and minimum housing standards. The UDO was adopted by the Matthews Board of Commissioners on December 9, 2013, and went into effect as of April 1, 2014. As amendments are proposed, they go through a public hearing and review process prior to approval.
