A Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment to Authorize the Consideration of the Entire Effect of a Boundary Line Adjustment Upon Multiple Nonconformities


Topic Description:

The proposed text amendment would add a new Section 10-104 to the Zoning Ordinance to permit the Zoning Administrator to consider the net effect of multiple non-conformities when evaluating a boundary line adjustment and approve such an adjustment if at least one of the nonconformities is made more conforming.  There are two proposed alternatives.  The Planning Commission recommended the adoption of alternative 2, which enumerates specific examples of nonconformities which may be relied upon in the review process.  The text of alternative 1 is broader in scope and permits the consideration of nonconformities related to zoning, subdivision and other County ordinances and state code requirements.  Either version would permit the consideration of the effect of such adjustment which either increase or decrease the size of drainfields, increase or decrease the setbacks from structures, and increase or decrease lot sizes. 


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of either version 1 or version 2 of the attached Ordinance.
