A Change to the Project's Name

Originally, the project was titled the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), which described unifying two separate codes related to development, the Manhattan Urban Area Subdivision Regulations and the Manhattan Zoning Regulations, into one integrated document. The title of the project has evolved to the Manhattan Development Code (MDC), as it is anticipated that the community will eventually forget that the City had two separate documents regulating development, and just naturally refer to the new project as the development code. So, the project name has changed, but its purpose has not.
