V.        Other Business

Wes Morrison, City Planner came forward to address the Commission.

 

Mr. Morrison informed the Commission that City Council has directed staff to draft changes to the commercial zoning districts to increase the quality of development within the City. 

 

Mr. Morrison further informed the Commission that staff’s goal was to draft a document that utilizes some characteristics of a coastal designed community but also allow for flexibility within the design so that everything does not look too similar or to reduce the “theme park” feel of the community. 

In regards to Section 125-71 Residential Multi-Family District, Mr. Allender informed the Commission that staff has prepared draft design standards for residential multi-family properties. 

Mr. Morrison stated that in review of the current zoning map, most of the City’s multi-family property that is available for development falls under a Planned Unit Development which has their own design standards; however there are about 20 or 30 acres within the City that is zoned residential multi-family and does not have any design standard control in place. 

Mr. Morrison further stated that staff wanted to make sure that any future multi-family project would be required to meet a certain level of design standard as well.
