17.360B.010 Purpose.


The May 7, 1998, Comprehensive Plan stated that the county could use limited areas of more intense rural developments (LAMIRDs) to reconcile historical land development patterns, and Manchester was identified as a candidate for this designation. As result of a public planning effort, the Manchester Community Plan was initially developed in 2002, setting specialized goals and policies for the Manchester village. This subchapter establishes development regulations to implement these goals and policies. In addition to these regulations, the policies and goals of the Manchester Community Plan are incorporated herein by reference, and application within the Manchester LAMIRD must also be able to demonstrate compliance with the Manchester Community Plan. In the event of a conflict between the requirements of these regulations for the Manchester rural village and any other statute, rule, ordinance or regulation, the more restrictive requirement shall govern.
