Forward Elon is an effort to prepare a new Land Management Ordinance, or “LMO” for the Town of Elon. The LMO will replace the Town’s current Land Development Ordinance (called the "LDO"). The Land Management Ordinance is the set of laws the Town uses to manage growth and development. The LMO identifies the kinds of land uses allowed in the Town, where particular land uses may be located, and how land uses are configured (in terms of parking, landscaping, signage, and similar kinds of site features). The LMO includes the rules the Town will follow for review and decision on applications for new development and changes to existing development, including rezonings, subdivisions, and site plans.
