The City is hosting a public forum on April 11, to provide information about draft code concepts for amending the following sections of the Development Code:
- Variances, Adjustments and Alternatives: Combine or reduce some of the nine existing procedures by which an applicant can vary or adjust standards in the Development Code and simplify and clarify the criteria.
- Nonconforming Structures and Uses: Clarify existing language and remove conflicting terms, add provisions to cover all common types of nonconformities, and revise provisions for modifying nonconforming structures in a manner that does not increase the degree of nonconformity.
The amendments are intended to update, streamline and simplify these code sections so they are easier to understand and administer. The Community Development Code Streamlining and Updates Project continues the work of the 2010 Code Audit and Phase 1 Code Reorganization project completed last year.
