The Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance amendments <br />were approved at the August 5, 2019 City Council meeting with the exception of the <br />recommended changes to Section 11-17-27 (storm shelters) of the Zoning Ordinance. <br />th <br />At their July 18 meeting, the Planning Commission recommended revised wording <br />to Section 11-17-27 to provide more flexibility for homebuilders to meet the storm <br />shelter requirement for slab on grade dwellings. <br /> <br />Mr. Morey indicated that the City Council directed staff to draft an amendment to the <br />Zoning Ordinance that eliminates the storm shelter requirement entirely. As such, a <br />new public hearing notice and a recommendation from the Planning Commission is <br />necessary. <br /> <br />Mr. Morey stated that the redlined ordinance included in the packet material for <br />tonight’s meeting reflects the direction of the City Council. <br /> <br />
