Question of the Day: Kent County building code update


Here is the Question of the Day:

Kent County Levy Court recently held a workshop with the Regional Planning Commission to review major updates to its planning and building codes that will bring the rules up to current standards and remove obsolete uses and add modern ones. The proposed changes include moving all general retail uses in the county’s Neighborhood Business District Zoning to a permitted use status. It would also lift restrictions on domestic pets and add guidelines for the keeping of backyard chickens, including completely banning roosters, apart from commercial farms. What would you like to see added or removed from the Kent County planning and building code?
