Section 11-44E-53

Codification authorized.

The commission may provide at any time it may deem proper, for the revision and codification of its resolutions, bylaws, and ordinances, or for the adoption of a code or codes by ordinance. Such code or codes and the revisions or amendments thereof may relate to the whole system of city resolutions, bylaws, and ordinances, or may relate to that portion of such resolutions, bylaws, and ordinances, which relate to, affect, or purport to govern any particular subject or subjects or subdivision of municipal legislation. The commission shall have full power and authority to prescribe the manner in which said code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto, shall be made public, whether by proclamation of any officer or officers of said city by posting or by publication, one or all, but it shall not be necessary unless so prescribed by the commission for such code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto, to be published in a newspaper or newspapers. Nor shall it be necessary that such code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto, be spread at length upon the minutes. The commission may prescribe that such code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto, be spread at length upon the minutes. The commission may prescribe that such code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto may be certified by and filed with the city clerk, or other corresponding officer, in lieu of spreading the same on the minutes; and the commission may prescribe the manner in which copies of such code or codes, revisions or amendments thereto, may be officially certified for use by the inhabitants or by the courts. The commission may adopt and provide for the maintenance in a designated office of the city a comprehensive zoning map of the city open for inspection by the public at all reasonable times, and may make such zoning map a part of any ordinance by reference thereto in such ordinance and without publication of such zoning map in any newspaper. Such zoning map need not be in one piece but may for convenience be in sections. A zoning map of territory newly added to the city shall be treated as a comprehensive zoning of the city for purposes of application of the provisions of the preceding sentence.
