explanation

STAFF REPORT

This petition is privately initiated by eda consultants, Inc., and proposes to amend the City's Land Development Code relating to two-family dwellings.  The proposed text changes include the following:

A. A revised definition of attached dwelling

B. Addition of a definition of two-family dwelling

C. Amendments to the RMF-6, 7, and 8 zoning districts dimensional standards table

 

The text amendments to the Land Development Code will facilitate construction of vertical two-family dwellings in the RMF-6, RMF-7, and RMF-8 zoning districts with proposed new dimensional standards.  Currently, the Land Development Code does not specify a definition for two-family dwellings.  Additionally, the Land Development Code provides lot standards for two-family dwellings that are configured horizontally.  The subject application requests amendment of the Land Development Code to allow vertical two-family dwellings in RMF-6, RMF-7, and RMF-8 zoning districts.

 

The City Plan Board, at its meeting of August 27, 2020, voted to recommend adoption of this ordinance.
