Land Use Code

The Land Use Code (LUC) was adopted by the Board of Trustees on March 22, 2022. The (LUC) is a set of regulations that guide how property is used and developed in Wellington. The purpose of the LUC is to protect landowner rights while also looking out for overall community interests. The LUC is a living document that changes over time to respond to new information and the needs of the community. The Planning Commission, Town staff, and subject matter experts updated the Land Use Code in 2022 to align with the community's vision laid out in the Comprehensive Plan, that was adopted on August 2, 2021.
