2 Unified Development Chapter The Unified Development Chapter of the City of Duluth Legislative Code (UDC) is the new set of zoning regulations for the City of Duluth The UDC was drafted to implement the Citys 2006 Comprehensive Land Use Plan, which is the communitys vision for growth and development in Duluth over the next 20 years.

3 Rezoning Zoning is the legal body of rules that cities create to regulate how land is developed and used. There are several areas of the city where existing zoning is inconsistent with the Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Over the next year, the City will be reviewing those areas closely to determine if they need to be rezoned.
