Introductory Presentation

The Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) heard an introduction to the zoning use classification and parking table changes on August 14.

Draft Zoning Use Classification and Parking Tables

The Planning and Zoning Commission has completed its review of the draft changes to the zoning use classification and parking tables. The Commission recommended additional changes to the tables during its review. Below you can find a summary of the Commission’s comments and recommended changes, as well copies of the tables with the Commission’s comments and changes redlined.

  2. Draft Residential Districts Permitted Uses and Parking Schedule (with P&Z changes)
  3. Draft Nonresidential Districts Permitted Uses and Parking Schedule (with P&Z changes)

Additional Code Changes

The changes being made to the zoning use classification and parking tables necessitate changes to other sections of the Development Code in order to ensure consistency throughout the Code. Below is a summary of changes to these additional sections as well as a copy of the Code changes (redlined version). Please note that only modified sections are included; those with no changes are not in the documents below.

  2. Redline of Additional Development Code Changes

Comparison to Existing Code

Due to the nature of the changes being recommended, a “redline” version of the Code would not be an effective tool for demonstrating the changes being proposed. Therefore, staff has also provided two tools to help show the changes from the existing permitted uses tables to the draft tables. A description of each of the tools is included below:

  1. Equivalency Table
    This table is used to see how existing uses are converted to new uses. Existing uses are listed by SIC number and the equivalent New Uses are listed next to the Existing Uses.
  2. Comparison Table
    This table is used to determine how a New Use would have been classified under the SIC classification system. New Uses are listed in alphabetical order by major grouping (i.e. Institutional, Office), and Old Uses are listed next to them. Additionally, this table compares where the “Old” use was permitted and where the “New” uses is permitted, by zoning district. Finally, the Comparison Table compares the previous parking requirements with the New parking requirements.
