City explains changes to landscaping law

August 8, 2014

The city of Starkville passed amendments to its landscape ordinance Tuesday that city officials say will better accommodate business and development needs in Starkville.

City Planner Daniel Havelin said he and his team focused on increasing the ordinance’s usability. Where the original 40-page ordinance made it difficult for landscape architects to parse the city’s requirements, the new 15-page ordinance uses charts, graphics and simplified language without losing much of the previous ordinance’s content. He said his team simplified landscaping categories, for instance, condensing what were once four or five categories of acreage into a dichotomy between landscapes less than and more than two acres.
