- Changes to the Residential Conservation District
- In July the Sully Joint Land Use and Transportation Committee was briefed by Lorrie Krist on proposed changes to the Residential Conservation District Zoning Ordinance. We were in agreement with the proposed changes.
- The Planning Commission also agreed with the changes and voted to recommend that the Board of Supervisors amend the zoning ordinance to read as follows:
- Allow a lot to be created in the R-C District that complies with the R-C District regulations and other applicable regulations, and such lot may be used for any use permitted in the R-C District pursuant to a Building Permit, provided that all such lots, except for lots designated as open space or lots developed under the cluster provisions requiring special exception approval from the Board of Supervisors (Board), shall have a shape factor of less than or equal to 35, or lots with a shape factor greater than 35 but less than 50 may be permitted with special exception approval by the Board of Supervisors.
- When a lot is subject to a lot width waiver special exception approved by the Board, exclude the pipestem portion of such lot from the shape factor requirement.
- Allow a minor adjustment of lot lines between corner lots and contiguous lots when such lots do not meet the current minimum district size, lot area, lot width and/or shape factor requirements of the zoning district in which located, but such lots met the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance in effect at the time of recordation, provided that the reconfigured lots contain either the same lot area as existed prior to the adjustment of the lot lines or a greater area than existed prior to the adjustment of lot lines which results in a reduced number of lots. Such minor adjustment of lot line between corner lots and contiguous lots may change the road frontage or orientation of the lot, provided that there shall be no additional lots or outlots created, the number of lots that does not comply with the current minimum lot width requirement shall not be increased, and the amount of lot width noncompliance shall not be aggravated. In addition, such adjustment of lot lines shall not create or aggravate any existing noncompliance with regard to minimum lot area, shape factor or minimum yard requirements.
- Allow the maximum building height for single family detached dwellings to be increased [ranging from the current 35 feet up to a maximum of 45 feet] in the R-C, R-E and R-1 Districts, provided a minimum required yard of [ranging from 40 to 60 feet] is maintained from all lot lines for any dwelling with a height greater than 35 feet.
