The Allen Land Development Code (ALDC) is periodically amended to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Code, to address changing development trends and new technologies, and to make changes necessary for compliance with state and federal laws. The proposed changes with this set of amendments are in response to two bills from the recent legislative session.
Section 6.03.2, "Private Clubs," and Section 6.03.5, "Restaurants with food and beverage certificates - Geographic Locations," are being amended to allow for the pickup and delivery of alcoholic beverages for off-premise consumption in accordance with H.B. 1024.
Section 6.06.11, "Solar Panels," is being amended to remove regulations that restrict or prohibit the installation of a solar energy device by a residential customer in accordance with S.B. 398.
Attached is a redline of the proposed amendments. The proposed amendments have gone through a review process with participation from the City Attorney as well as other City staff.
