Chatfield to draft ordinance for B-3 district


Fri, Feb 18th, 2011
Posted in Government

A resolution was adopted to direct the city attorney to draft an ordinance for a Light Commercial Zoning District (B-3) at the Chatfield City Council's February 14 meeting. A public hearing was held prior to the resolution's adoption; no one commented from the public.

The creation of the new third commercial zoning district has been recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission to allow for a district with less intense commercial uses to be more compatible with nearby residential areas.

The Planning Commission has worked over a period of several months to determine what permitted uses would be appropriate for B-3. Councilor Paul Novotny explained that he thinks they have made the ordinance language broad enough so most types of less intense businesses could fit. The Planning Commission and City Council will have the authority to approve a business use not listed if it is determined that it is of the same general character and would not have a detrimental effect on the neighborhood.

The standards for set backs and height will be similar to those for Neighborhood Commercial (B-2).

In February of 2010, the city of Chatfield purchased nine properties on the north side of Industrial Drive west of Hillside Drive. These properties are currently zoned B-2. However, the use designation for these properties is Light Commercial (B-3).
