Moratoria and Interim Development Standards

When the Parish Council adopts a resolution that authorizes a study of the parish’s development regulations, it may choose to impose a moratorium or interim development standards during the course of the study. Moratoria or interim development standards go into effect immediately upon adoption of the resolution by the Council, and they stay in place for up to one year but may be extended for up to six additional months. (Chapter 40 Zoning, Sec. 40-880 Permits pending amendments; Moratorium and Chapter 33 UDC, Sec. 33-2.21.5. Approvals pending ordinance amendments; moratorium.)

The table below lists the moratoria or interim development standards that are currently in effect, with the zoning districts affected and when the moratorium or interim development standards will expire. The table also provides a link to the resolutions which contain the details of the moratoria or interim development standards. 

Please contact a planner for a complete understanding of these moratoria or interim development standards.
