INFORMATION: Article XI of the Land Use Ordinance contains the provisions relating to the design and development requirements of village mixed use developments.  Section 15-141.2 indicates that one of the objectives of such a development is the “provision of buildings for civic assembly or for other common purposes that act as visual landmarks and symbols of identity within the community.”  Eric Chupp of Capkov Ventures has submitted a text amendment request to modify this provision (Attachment B). 

 

The Board of Aldermen must receive public comments before adopting amendments to the Land Use Ordinance.  Orange County and Planning Board review are also needed.    The attached resolution also identifies the Appearance Commission and the Northern Transition Area Advisory Commission as reviewers of the draft ordinance.   

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  Public hearings involve staff and public notice costs associated with advisory board and Board of Aldermen review. 

 

RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends that the Board of Aldermen consider the attached resolution (Attachment A) directing staff to prepare a draft ordinance in response to the request, setting a public hearing date of May 28, and referring the proposed amendment to Orange County and the Planning Board.
