Zoning Committee Meeting Minutes: 3/5/2015

  • Chair Guerrero appointed Hugh Bender to the HNA Zoning Committee.
  • 716 Harris : There are no zoning violations or variances pertaining to the permit that is currently being reviewed by the COA staff. ZCM Whatley did not observe any glaring design issues with the plan.
  • The HNA ZC members cannot meet informally to discuss zoning concerns with residents. For a residential zoning issue emergency the HNA ZC will provide a Special Called Meeting.
  • ZCM's commented on the HNA duplex issues and challenges as additional legal permits infiltrate our area. HNA ZCM's stated that best solution for change lie ahead in the CodeNEXT land development code (LDC) decisions and recommendations.
  • GROUP HOME, CLASS I (GENERAL): This category will trump occupancy limits. The majority of these legal uses will predominately fall into MF-4-NP category. ZCM Guerrero suggested the HNA code compliance officer be invited to a meeting in the near future.
  • New Business: ZCM Guerrero reported on a stakeholders meeting pertaining to Resolution 20141002-042. There will be one more meeting before any recommendations move forward to Council. One person at the meeting suggested amending the Temporary Use permit. The suggested change is to allow a Temporary Use Permit if the residents within 100 feet all agree. ZCM Guerrero asked to discuss this proposed change with CANPAC members and HNA members at their next meeting date.
  • The meeting was adjourned at 7:58pm
