Below you will find the City of Canton’s Unified Development Code (UDC). The UDC covers the following topics:

Zoning Regulations
Land Disturbance and Erosion Control
Subdivision Regulations
Architectural Review
Minimum Landscape Requirements
Flood Plain Damage Prevention
Storm Water Management
Historic Preservation
Go Dark Ordinance
Transient Vendor Ordinance

You will also need to refer to the Canton Zoning Map for proper application of the UDC to a specific property. There are base zoning types (Ex. R-1, C-2), district overlays (Ex. Canton West Special Planned Overlay District), and special corridor overlays (Ex. Special Planned Highway Corridor).

Another item to pay special attention to is the Canton Historic Districts. Those properties that fall with in the local historic district will need to apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness with the Canton Redevelopment Authority and appear before the Historic Preservation Commission.

If you need assistance with the UDC or any other development services please contact Donald Lawrence.
