 ORDINANCE NO. O-17-08-01-90

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ZONING CODE OF THE CITY OF OAK HILL IN REFERENCE TO LOT, YARD, BULK AND DENSITY REQUIREMENTS

 

WHEREAS, the City of Oak Hill’s Board of Commissioners have determined that changes to the City’s Zoning Ordinance are needed to achieve the desired objectives of the City of Oak Hill; and 

                                                               

WHEREAS, the City of Oak Hill’s Board of Zoning Appeals has reviewed and recommended the adoption of these Amendments to the Zoning Ordinance; and

WHEREAS, public notice has been given pursuant to Ordinance O-15-09-02-90; and

WHEREAS, public notice has been given and a public hearing on this Amendment to the Zoning Ordinance has been held in accordance with T.C.A. 13-7-203 and 204 and this amendment to the Zoning Ordinance has been submitted to and approved by the City of Oak Hill’s Planning Commission, as required by T.C.A. 13-7-204.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF OAK HILL, TENNESSEE, that the Zoning Ordinance for the City of Oak Hill, as codified in Title 14, Chapter 3 of the Municipal Code of the City of Oak Hill, is hereby amended as follow:

The Board of Commissioners of the City of Oak Hill hereby resolve to amend, restate and delete the Bulk, yard and density regulations as follows:

SECTION XIV.        DISTRICT REGULATIONS

Subsection 220:          Bulk, yard, and density regulations

 

DELETE:

14-220.6          Average Front Yard Requirement.  The front setback line shall be determined by 90% of the average of the closest primary structures on each side of the subject lot or the distances in Table II, whichever is greater; provided that no front yards shall be required to be greater than one hundred fifty (150) feet in depth.

ADD:

14-220.6          Minimum Front Yard Setback.  The front yard setback shall be determined by the average setbacks of four (4) Lots, which are most adjacent with like-facing homes thereon.  If such average is not capable of being determined due to lack of development on adjacent Lots or is otherwise impractical due to site conditions affecting adjacent Lots, then the Minimum Front Yard Setback is as set forth in Table II.  

14-220.8          Lot Area.  “Lot Area” means the horizontal area included within the boundary lines of a Lot, typically stated in terms of acreage or square feet.

14-220.9          Minimum Street Frontage.  The minimum street frontage is as set forth in Table II, except for cul-de-sac streets which shall have not less than forty (40) feet

14-220.11        Minimum Rear Yard Setback.  The minimum rear setback is as set forth in Table II.

14-220.12        Minimum Side Yard Setback.  The minimum side yard setbacks are as set forth in Table II.

14-220.13        Maximum Allowable Heated/Cooled Space.  The maximum allowable heated/cooled space will be determined by calculating total heated and cooled square footage as a percentage of the maximum lot coverage.  See Table II for the appropriate percentage for each zoning classification.

DELETE:      The existing Table II, Lot, Yard, Bulk, and Density Requirements. (See Exhibit A).

ADD:              The new Table II, Lot, Yard, Bulk and Density Requirements. (See Exhibit B).
