Understanding Overlay Districts

Education, News No Response

Steep slopes map

Every watershed should have a variety of tools to protect the water. Education is one of the biggest and most effective tools but effective zoning can pay big dividends as well.

Using a zoning Overlay District (OD), as defined by the boundaries of the Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed, is an excellent way to plan for the long-term protection of our water. If the OD does its job, it will be the gift that keeps on giving.

Keep in mind that existing development within the OD would be exempt from the new provisions. The OD would however provide guidance for future development and changes to existing development. Either way, every watershed resident should become educated on the OD to understand its implication for water protection within the context of reasonable development.
