The Town of Garner adopted the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) on July 22, 2003, effective on October 1, 2003 and was codified in May 2006. Presently, the Town is undertaking steps to streamline and  re-write these regulations in response to the Town's recent Garner Forward comprehensive planning effort. Please visit the project page for information regarding this effort.
