|REFERRAL TO THE LAND USE AND SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE - DISCUSSION REGARDING A PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO CHAPTER 106 OF THE CITY CODE TO PROVIDE FOR A LIMITED WAIVER OF THE PERMANENT REMOVAL FEE FOR ON-STREET PARKING SPACES, WHEN SUCH REMOVAL IS REQUESTED IN CONNECTION WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT.
|Please place the attached referral has been placed on the June 23, 2021 City Commission meeting agenda as a referral to the Land Use and Sustainability Committee (“LUSC”).
City Code Section 106-55 provides that “[p]rivate requests for permanent parking space or loading zone removal shall only be allowed for the purpose of creating access to an off-street parking facility or other vehicular access to the property.” The Code further provides that “the fee for the private permanent removal of a parking space or loading zone shall be the same rate as the fee in lieu of required parking.”
On May 18, 2021, the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee adopted a motion recommending that the City Commission waive fees associated with the removal of on-street parking spaces when such removal is requested to provide vehicular/driveway access to new affordable housing development. Again, this limited waiver would apply only to the creation of new affordable housing development. See LTC attached. As such, I am referring this matter to the Land Use & Development Committee for further review and analysis. Please feel free to contact Diana Fontani should you need any additional information.
