The paragraphs bundle together eleven distinct actions for a single vote. The first paragraph enacts the Core Zoning Code and the Road, Driveway and Entrance Ordinance. These two new documents replace the zoning portion of the existing Land Use Ordinance and will take effect on January 1, 2021. The second paragraph both repeals the Newcastle Land Use Ordinance and converts eight "code modules" into separate standalone ordinances. These "code modules" are currently embedded in the pages of the existing Land Use Ordinance. There are no revisions to the language in these eight documents, they simply carry over and remain in effect on January 1, 20201.
