NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATIONAL MEETING

ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 86 ZONING

OF THE CODE OF ORDINANCES

OF THE CITY OF MARSHALL, MINNESOTA

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that an Public Informational Meeting will be held regarding proposed amendments to the following sections of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Marshall:

CHAPTER 86 ZONING

ARTICLE I. IN GENERAL

Sec. 86-1. - Definitions

Sec. 86?163. - Accessory Buildings

Sec. 86-164. - Accessory Structures

The proposed revisions to the above sections are intended to allow some things that are already being done or are constantly allowed by variances. For example, there are plenty of garages for apartment buildings that are over 1,000 SF. Also, many variances were approved to reduce the rear yard so the staff feels that it can be done on the permanent basis without negative results. The revised Definition section is included to update definition in conjunction with the above revisions. Definitions that may or will be used in future ordinance revisions were also included. Many definitions were added and/or updated to correspond to the Building Code.

CHAPTER 86 - ZONING

ARTICLE II. - ADMINISTRATION AND ENFORCEMENT

DIVISION 1. GENERALLY

Sec. 86-27. - Nonconforming Uses

Sec. 86-29. - Variances

Sec. 86-30. - Amendments

DIVISION 2. CONDITIONAL USE PERMITS

Sec. 86?46. - Issuance; purposes

Sec. 86-47. - Application; fee

Sec. 86-48. - Procedure

Sec. 86-49. - Standard for hearing

Sec. 86-50. - Offices of persons and home occupations

Sec. 86-51. - Bed and breakfast

The proposed revisions to the Administration and Enforcement article of the Zoning Ordinance intend to clean some inadvertent mistakes such as wrong distance references, make it more uniform within the Ordinance by using consistent language in different sections, bring it into compliance with the latest State Statute revisions by adjusting the Variance section wording to match the Statutes, and simplify and streamline the home occupation conditional use permits to reflect the widespread computer use.

The Public Informational Meeting will be held on September 18, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. in the Conference Room of Marshall Municipal Utilities located at 113 South 4th Street.

Director of Public Works/City Engineer Glenn Olson and Building Official Ilya Gutman will conduct a presentation and answer questions at the informational meeting.

A Public Hearing will be held before the Marshall City Council on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, in the Professional Development Room of the Marshall Middle School located at 401 South Saratoga Street.

Dated: September 13, 2013
