SR City Council Considers Small Lot Standards Ordinances
Tuesday May 8, 2018
URGENCY ORDINANCES – SMALL LOT STANDARDS (Updated 4.18.18)
On October 24, 2017, to facilitate and expedite reconstruction following the October 2017 wildfires, the City Council adopted an urgency ordinance establishing the Resilient City (-RC) Combining Zoning District, to be applied to the base zoning of each property most severely impacted by the Fires. As field surveys and new information became available, 21 additional properties with destroyed or damaged structures were identified outside of the -RC District boundaries. As a result, an urgency ordinance was prepared to add the -RC District to these properties.
At the April 3, 2018 City Council meeting, a resident of the Coffey Park area requested that the Council consider amending the -RC Combining District to allow lots smaller than 6,000 square-feet to use the residential small lot development standards, which include reduced setbacks, among other standards. The Council directed staff to meet with residents of the area and bring a proposal back.
On May 8, 2018, at or after 4:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, the City Council will consider two urgency ordinances related to the Resilient City (-RC) Combining Zoning District:
1. Adding 21 additional properties with destroyed or damaged structures to the -RC District; and
2. Amending Zoning Code Section 20-28.100, -RC Combining District, to add residential small lot development standards to the Resilient City (-RC) Combining District.
