Analysis
This ordinance provides that:
 
1.  The use classification of the following uses in the industrial-mixed (IM) zoning district is changed from permitted use to limited use: single-family dwelling, two-family dwelling, multi-family dwelling, permanent supportive housing, attached single-family dwelling, family day care home, convent, rectory or monastery, foster family home and family shelter care facility.
 
2.  The limited use standard for these uses shall be: The use shall not be located within 150 feet of a parcel located in an IH district that contains an intense manufacturing or heavy manufacturing land use that was in operation on the effective date of this ordinance, as indicated by a valid certificate of occupancy for that use, and has been in operation within the last 12 months.  If this standard is not met, the use shall be a prohibited use.
 
3.  The same limited use standard shall also be added for certain uses that are already classified as limited uses in the IM district, namely adult family homes, small group shelter care facilities, small foster homes, group homes, group foster homes and community living arrangements.
 
4.  No special use permit for transitional housing or a rooming house, dormitory, fraternity or sorority, or large group shelter care facility shall be granted by the board of zoning appeals unless the board finds, in addition to its standard required findings, that the proposed use will not be located within 150 feet of a parcel located in an IH district that contains an intense manufacturing or heavy manufacturing land use that was in operation on the effective date of this ordinance, as indicated by a valid certificate of occupancy for that use, and has been in operation within the last 12 months.
Body
Whereas, When the City adopted a new Zoning Code in 2002, a new Industrial-Mixed (IM) zoning district was created and applied to traditionally industrial areas that were transitioning to more of a mixture of industrial and non-industrial uses; and
 
Whereas, The Common Council finds that while the flexibility provided by the Industrial-Mixed classification and the associated land use regulations is appropriate and has been successful overall, there are a small number of situations where existing heavy and intense land uses may be negatively affected by allowing new residential uses in close proximity to these existing uses; and
 
Whereas, The Common Council further finds that the adjustments to limited use standards for residential uses in the Industrial-Mixed district set forth in this ordinance would help to ensure that future land-use conflicts are prevented; now, therefore
 
The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Milwaukee do ordain as follows:
 
Part 1.  Table 295-803-1 of the code is amended to read:
