Bill 2022-A Ordinance 27, 32, and 39 - TITLE: AN ORDINANCE
ADDING A NEW ZONING DISTRICT DESIGNATION TO TITLE 16
WHICH SHALL BE KNOWN AS INTENSIVE MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL
DISTRICT (R-3) AND SETTING FORTH THE USES FOR
SUCH DISTRICT AND ESTABLISHING DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS
AND REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL TYPES OF MULTI-FAMILY
DEVELOPMENT IN ALL ZONING DISTRICTS
SUMMARY: This ordinance adds a new zoning district designation to
Title 16 of the Churchill County Code titled “Intensive Multi-Family Residential
District (R3),” adds allowed uses for the new zone into the Use
Table, adds development standards for this new district in the dimensional
standards table, and establishes the development standards
and approval requirements for multi-family construction in all districts.
These changes address items such as allowable density, required setbacks,
amenities, height restrictions, open space, and other associated
matters. Maximum density for the R3 district will be 16 units per acre,
increasing to 24 units per acre with bonus densities under a Planned
Unit Development. Changes are made to the R-2 zoning district and its
dimensional standards to coordinate it with the new R-3 zoning district.
Changes are made to the Planned Unit Development standards to
coordinate them with other changes in this ordinance. Other changes
are made to the two existing tables of dimensional standards for other
zoning districts by combining them into one table, correcting errors,
clarifying and streamlining the tables, and simplifying the dimensional
standards for cluster developments.
