PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE ZONING ORDINANCE FOR COUNCIL ADOPTION

A public hearing for the purpose of receiving public input and taking action on proposed zoning amendments for adoption by the City Council, as follows:
  •  Amendment #1 - To increase the maximum permitted height in the CBD (Zoning Ordinance Section 306.3)
  • Amendment #2 - To eliminate enhanced setback from state highways (Zoning Ordinance Sections 311.3, 311A.3 and 311B.3)
  • Amendment #3 - To add PURD as a Permitted Use in the R-O and R-O-1 Districts (Zoning Ordinance Sections 311.2, 311A.2, 500.B and 501.2B)
  • Amendment #4 - To update the Riverbank Protection District regulations pertaining to the use of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizer (Zoning Ordinance Section 410.7)
  • Amendment #5 - To adjust the maximum permitted sign area regulations (Zoning Ordinance Section 608.4.A.1.a)

  • Amendment #8 - Proposed Zoning Map Change from RL-3 to R-3 for properties located at 388 North Main Street (M/L 8-16) and 386 North Main Street (M/L 8-17). The subject properties are non-conforming to the minimum lot size requirements of the RL-3 District. The primary purpose of the amendment is to match the zoning of these properties with the zoning of similarly sized properties in the surrounding neighborhood. (Zoning Map Change)
  • Amendment #9 - Proposed Zoning Map Change from R-2 to CBD for properties located at 3 Seminary Hill (M/L 86-56), 5 South Main Street (M/L 86-55) and a portion of Westboro Yard (M/L 72-5). The primary purpose of the amendment is to extend the CBD to allow the redevelopment of the City-owned properties at 3 Seminary Hill and 5 South Main Street, and to match the property lines of Westboro Yard which is currently split-zoned CBD and R-2.
