Recently Adopted Ordinances

The process of reviewing and incorporated changes to the City Code is called "codification." Because this process must be undertaken for each change, recent changes to the code are not incorporated immediately. The process of codification may takes place on a semi-annual basis.

After City Council-approved changes are incorporated into the official code of ordinances, the online representation of the Code is updated. Because of this time lag, a list of recently approved, but not yet codified, changes below.
