Proposed Changes to Land Use Regulations Related to the Table of Uses, Ordinance Revisions

The attached 145-page document contains the proposed amendments to the Weaverville Town Code that are necessary to incorporate the Concept Documents into the Town Code. These amendments do the following:

1. Add a comprehensive table of uses within the zoning ordinance so that all uses, the districts in which the uses are allowed, and the regulation and review process required, are found on a table and not scattered throughout the zoning ordinance;

2. Expand the table of dimensional requirements to include building height and buffering so that all dimensional requirements are found on the table and not scattered throughout the zoning ordinance;

3. Update and add definitions that are necessary for use of the table of uses;

4. Add to and update the arrangement of the standards for the uses that are permitted with standards;

5. Amend Chapter 4 concerning animals to make consistent with the standards proposed in the zoning ordinance for livestock and fowl;

6. Eliminate new special use permitting in favor of conditional zoning districts so that anyone can provide input and the projects can be decided by Town Council which will allow for more accountability to the public;

7. Update the zoning ordinance to comply with recent legislative changes;

8. Fix typographical errors that have been identified.
