The city, Hamilton County, the Regional Planning Agency and a third-party consulting firm out of Austin, Texas are working together to overhaul building zoning codes for essentially all of downtown Chattanooga.

The new zoning will have a monumental impact on the way Chattanooga looks going forward and create all-new regulations for builders and developers doing new construction and repurposing in the city.
