Document Description
County General Plan Policy 2.16.7, associated program (a), and Section 13.10.333 of the County Code. Specifically, the proposed amendments, which apply to Type A accommodations in the commercial districts VA, C-2 and CT would: 1. Remove the existing density requirements of 1,300 sf per habitable room with a kitchen and 1,100 sf per habitable room without a kitchen; 2. The number of stories would no longer be limited to three by the provision of subsection (A) of Section 13.10.333, but structures would remain subject to the limits on height in 13.10.333 and to design standards in Chapter 13.11; 3. Amend Section 13.10.355 and 13.10.510 for consistency with the changes proposed in Section 13.10.335; 4. Reduce parking requirements from 1.1 spaces per unit to 1 space per unit as outlined in Subdivision (B) of Section 13.10.552, of the Code. Outside commercial districts, eliminate the 1.1 spaces per unit standard and rely solely on the existing standard requiring 1 space per habitable room.
