N/A - Comprehensive Update to the Zoning Code

Document Description
NOTE: Review per Lead The proposed Comprehensive Zoning Code Update is a complete revision of the City's Zoning Code and is intended to reflect the most appropriate and best available development regulations and standards to meet the desires of the community regarding future development within the City. Such a comprehensive revision effort has not been undertaken within the community since 1974. As such, there are many changes from both procedural and development regulation standards incorporated into the proposed zoning code that do not currently existing in the present zoning code. The proposed Title 11, Zoning, does not change standards for basic lot size, density and building intensity, setback, lot coverage, height, parking, and sign regulations of the current zoning Code. There are minor changes to allowable and discretionary land uses within the City, such as news stands, kiosks, artist's studios, catering services, and handicraft/custom manufacturing uses. New provisions related to a number of design related issues are proposed, such as porches, additional building stepbacks for structures more than 14 ft high, use of compatible material and design elements for building additions, and other design and aesthetic matters of concern to the City. In addition an "Administrative Use Permit" approval process is proposed which would allow the Director of Development Services to review and approve several types of discretionary land use approvals that are currently reviewed and approved by the Planning Commission.
