Tony Allender, Director of Planning & Research In December of 2011, based on a petition for de-annexation from the Historic District by several property owners, Council directed staff to draft regulations for the Residential Neighborhood Conversation Overlay District that would protect the character of the entire district even if some property was removed from the Historic District boundaries. 

 

Therefore, staff took the existing Residential Neighborhood Overlay district regulations and added provisions for all properties within the overlay, additional regulations for properties within the Township Subdivision and properties within the Historic District.  The majority of the new requirements focus on architectural and site design standards.  Few changes were made land use requirements, such as allowing eating and drinking establishments with size limitations to ensure the character of the area is preserved.

 

Mr. Allender informed the Commission that on February 16th staff presented this draft to the Historic District Commission who had several substantial comments and requested that the Commission continue the public hearing until the March 5th Planning & Zoning Commission date to allow staff to incorporate comments heard tonight and the Historic District comments. 

 

Mr. Hullman opened the public hearing at 7:00pm.

 

Richard Benoit, 403 N. Kansas: Requested the Planning and Zoning Commission table their action until the Historic District Commission could review the amended document for a second time.
