Document Description
The Vacant Lands Inventory and Zoning Evaluation for Possible Rezoning to Promote Housing Opportunities Project (proposed project) proposes to conduct a vacant lands inventory and zoning review of private properties located throughout the County. This information would be used identify land that may be appropriate for zone change(s) to promote housing opportunities, primarily by increasing allowable residential density. This may include increasing the amount of multi-family zoning available in the County, lowering some of the minimum lot size requirements, and additional zoning areas with principal permitting for mobile home parks. The review of the County's current zoning would also focus on commercial zones for opportunities for infill (residential) development. Areas near public transportation and other services would be considered prime, but due to the County's rural nature, other properties located in remote communities without these services might also be identified for potential zone changes. A review of the zoning code language addressing accessory dwelling units would also be conducted for infill opportunities. A primary component of this work would include public outreach meetings and communication with potentially affected property owners.
