[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing to consider an ordinance to amend Land Use Code Article 3, Article 5, and Article 10

Public Hearing Notice 

Grand County Planning Commission

Amending the Grand County Land Use Code Article 3, Article 5 and Article 10


Project Title:        Consider an ordinance amending the Grand County Land Use Code (LUC) by amending Article 3 (Use Standards) and Article 5 (Lot Design Standards) to address deficiencies related to land uses and use specific standards, conflicts related to uses allowed, as well as inconsistencies with state code; and amending Article 10 (Definitions) to be consistent with existing language in the LUC as well as recently updated language.


Project Description: 


Update the LUC to provide an exception to Section 3.1 (C), Uses Not Allowed, to clarify that camping on private property for no more than 30 days in the Range and Grazing district is allowed by property owners for purposes of grazing livestock, hunting, and personal recreation, but not permissible as overnight accommodations or long term rentals.


Update Section 3.1 Use Table and 3.2 Use-Specific Standards to clarify uses already allowed in various zoning districts, improve standards for residential and non-residential uses, and establish a use category for “event/conference space” as a permitted use in Highway Commercial zoning district.


Update section 3.3 Accessory and Temporary Uses and Structures to be consistent with Utah State law regarding Internal Accessory Dwelling Units; to define Temporary Uses, such as Film Production and establish related Use-Specific Standards; to tie the number of employee housing, accessory units allowed on non-residential properties to parcel size.


Update Section 5.2.2 Housing Types, Section 5.4 Part I: Residential Districts, and Section 5.5 Part II: Nonresidential Districts to be consistent with other sections in the code, and to modify the residential density allowed in Highway Commercial and Multifamily Zoning Districts.

Revise Article 10 (Definitions) to provide definitions which are consistent with other sections of the code.
