Planning staff identifies potential improvements to the zoning ordinance throughout the year and assembles a package of amendments. The latest package is targeted for either January or February 2018 adoption by City Council, depending on when legal review is completed. The proposed amendments require a public hearing by the Planning Commission and a separate public hearing by City Council.
Highlights of this year's package:
Creates a registry for homestays and short term rentals; modifies bed and breakfast regulations.
Implementing the Wireless Telecommunications Facilities Policy with updated regulations regarding towers and other facilities.
Amendment of the sign regulations to remove references to content (where possible) and to impose limits on the night time intensity of digital signs.
The amendment to the RM-1 district density requirement will not be brought forward.
