Code Amendment Relative to Common Area

Since May 2021, the Planning Department has been evaluating the application of current ordinance provisions related to the required common area for cluster single-family residential development (single-family lots containing less than 12,000 square feet and providing compensatory common area) and townhouse development. Planning staff has gathered data for review regarding the challenges associated with implementing the current ordinance requirements. As a result of this work, a clearer definition of common area along with a more reasonable formula for the provision of common area within residential projects have been developed.

Ordinance amendments are being proposed which would address the change of definition and formula. These proposed changes advance the comprehensive plan goals of integrating natural and recreational areas, including pedestrian and bicycle connections, into communities while promoting housing variety.

The Planning Commission held a work session on these proposed amendments to the zoning ordinance on Tuesday, March 15, 2022. A virtual community meeting was held on Wednesday, May 11, 2022. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the amendment at the Tuesday, May 17, 2022, public hearing and that the Board of Supervisors will take action on the amendment at the Wednesday, June 29, 2022, public hearing.
