UPDATE: LDC Amendments

Post by Steve Adler » Tue Feb 11, 2020 9:02 am

Colleagues,

There were some amendment numbering and order changes posted last night. We are prepared to work off of the original document posted yesterday morning and yellow sheets with these changes. However, in case it is helpful, we are posting a revised list of amendments (V2) that captures the posted changes. No new amendments posted after last Friday’s deadline have been included, as we still plan to take those up after this first set. Please let us know if you see anything that needs to be corrected.

Council Member Ellis intends to bring the following amendment to Harper-Madison-10, which she hopes will be accepted as friendly:

[HARPER-MADISON–10] IMPERVIOUS COVER EXEMPTIONS
The Land Development Code staff shall consider and specify partial or full exclusions to impervious cover calculations, if and as appropriate, for all residential zones, including the following:
• Artificial grass surfaces, such as synthetic turf, that have a permeable backing that allows water to permeate the material and filter down to the soil;
• Pervious technologies;
• Unpaved portions of driveways including the unpaved portions of ribbon driveways;
• Uncovered decks, including wooden and metal grate decks, that have drainage spaces between the deck boards or drainage spaces in the patterns and is located over a pervious surface;
• All areas and items currently excluded from impervious cover calculations as outlined in Section 1.8.1 – Calculations of the City’s Environmental Criteria Manual.
A partial impervious exemption shall be allowed for the following:
• Pervious concrete or porous pavement including patios, plaza, sport courts, or other nonwalkway pedestrian surfaces;

Here is the red-lined version:
