PUBLIC HEARING DATES
Planning Commission June 24, 2004 at 8:15 p.m.
Board of Supervisors July 26, 2004 at 3:30 p.m.
The proposed amendment to the SHD permits single family attached and multiple family
dwellings, in addition to single family detached dwellings; clarifies the prohibition of commercial uses;
and permits an increase in building height from 35 to 60 feet with special exception approval by the
Board of Supervisors. It is staff’s opinion that the additional residential uses are appropriate given the
changes to the airport noise contours in the SHD. Furthermore, the ARB, Planning Commission and
Board review of any proposed building height increase through the special exception review process
should address any adverse impacts that such a request may have on the Sully Historic site. Finally, it is
believed that the proposed amendment ensures consistency with the original intent of the SHD to allow
certain commercial uses in residential and industrial developments. Therefore, staff recommends
approval of the proposed amendment with an effective date of 12:01 A.M. on the day following
