Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance, as substituted, amends Sections 17.40.720 and 17.40.730 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to require public notice for applications for permits from the Historic Zoning Commission. A preservation permit that meets certain specified conditions would require that written notice of the Historic Zoning Commission meeting where the permit would be considered by US Mail of the date, time, and place to all property owners within two hundred and fifty feet of the subject property at least eleven days prior to the meeting. The applicant would be responsible for preparation and mailing of the written notices.

 

Further, public notice signs would be required for a property subject to consideration by the historic zoning commission of a preservation permit application which meets certain specified conditions.  The sign would be required to be installed on the subject property no less than eleven days prior to the consideration by the historic zoning commission. The sign must be double-sided with 24” (vertical) by 36” (horizontal) dimensions posted at every fifty feet of public road frontage, excluding alleys in a manner to best inform the monitoring public without creating a safety hazard. The sign would also be required to contain the time, date, and location of the scheduled public hearing at the Historic Zoning Commission, the general nature of the hearing, and a phone number for additional information. The applicant would be responsible for the costs of preparing and placing the signs, as well as providing proof of compliance to the Historic Zoning Commission.

 

This ordinance has been approved by the Planning Commission.
