161597 01.OrdinanceA substitute ordinance relating to the setback requirement for new street-facing garages in the LB3 local business zoning district.

Minutes note: Member Mukamal questioned the title of the original version of the ordinance compared to the text of Proposed Substitute A. Member Richardson said that the intent is to no longer consider the first portion of the original ordinance and only the second portion, as reflected in a Proposed Substitute version, relating to the setback requirement for street-facing garages. Member Mukamal said that for consideration is Proposed Substitute A relative to extending the 4-foot (minimum) setback requirement to a street-facing overhead garage door on any new building or building addition in the LB3 local business zoning district. The setback requirement currently exists in three zoning districts (NS2, LB2, and RB2). There is no substantive change in the requirement itself. Member Richardson said that the setback requirement should have been included during the creation of the LB3 zoning district about a year and a half ago. The request is to include it now. The purpose of the setback is to prevent situations of "snout houses" where garages are right next to streets and the houses are setback from the garages. These instances are not pedestrian-friendly and take away from synergy in older areas. Member Mukamal questioned whether this requirement would apply to both residential and nonresidential new developments. Member Richardson said that it would. Member Richardson moved that substitute version of the proposed ordinance, known as Proposed Substitute A, meets the standards of legality and enforceability, consistency with the format of the zoning code, and administrative efficiency, subject to a proper record being made. There were no objections from those members present. Member Medhin excused. .
