Order to adopt a zoning amendment to create a Water View Overlay District, requiring a Conditional Use approval for development on lots that may affect a water view.

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
The Council accepted a request by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) to review the Zoning Ordinance's requirement for a Conditional Use approval for development for non-conforming lots that may affect a water view. The Council assigned this review to the Community Development Committee (CDC). A public hearing was held March 26 and CDC requested the order be table until they could discuss the amendment further.

Councilor Payne has submitted this order to create the overlay district and maintain the existing level of review for these lots.  This will allow for the remainder of nonconforming dwellings and lots to be permitted without a Conditional Use Approval.  The CDC will continue to address the concerns of the BZA regarding the standards for review of water views.
