More Orderly Future Development in Scott
SCOTT, LA (AP) — There will be no new mobile parks or dirt pits in the city of Scott, and future development in general will be more orderly under new regulations set to go into effect Jan. 1.
Richard Burgess with The Advocate reports the new land-use code, approved by the city council this mon th, will bring comprehensive development regulations to a city that now has few restrictions.
Mayor Purvis Morrison says the regulations carve the city up into several different districts and spell out what types of developments can be built in each — rural residential, suburban residential, industrial, urban commercial or urban center.
Morrison says the idea is to maintain the character of Scott, so the new districts are drawn based on existing development patterns.
