Title
Public Hearing - Ordinance 2020-10 for Code Amendments to Sections 402, 709, 710, 711, 712, and 716 to the City's Zoning Ordinance are proposed to add a definition related to automobile broker office and to list automobile broker office as a permitted use within the Limited Commercial, Office Institutional, Neighborhood Shopping, General Commercial, and Central Business Districts zoning districts.

Body
ISSUE AND BACKGROUND:
The City’s Zoning Ordinance is silent on automobile broker offices and does not list the use as a permitted use under any zoning district in the city. Community Development is proposing a code amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to identify the zoning districts where automobile broker offices can be permitted to assist with enforcement of relevant provisions and to differentiate between automobile dealerships and storage yards. Community Development is proposing to amend Sections 709, 710, 711, 712 and 716 of the Zoning Ordinance to add automobile broker office as a permitted use under the Limited Commercial (LC), Office-Institutional (OI), Neighborhood Shopping (NS), General Commercial (GC) and Central Business District (CBD) zoning districts. These are the five zoning districts staff feels are the most appropriate zoning districts for an automobile broker office. Community Development proposes the following code amendments to ensure consistent permitting and enforcement of automobile broker offices throughout the City, as well as to differentiate between automobile broker offices and automobile dealerships and storage yards.

The Planning Board recommended approval by a vote of 6-0 at the August 10, 2020 meeting.
