Agenda Item Summary:
The purpose of the Ordinance Amendment is to require that lots abut a public street to ensure legal access to right-of-way and utilities without having to cross another property. The issue arises when lots are being platted. The same requirement is identified in the Low Density Residential District and Low Density Residential District II. It appears that the requirement that each lot abut a public street a minimum distance of 25 feet was inadvertently excluded from the Medium Density Residential District. Please note that the Zoning Ordinance requires that the same lot width required in the Medium Density Residential District is required in the High Density Residential District. As such, amending the language of the Medium Density Residential District automatically amends the language for the High Density Residential District. No other change is being proposed.
