Summary Explanation and Background

SUMMARY EXPLANATION AND BACKGROUND:
1. At the request of Commissioner Good, the City Commission voted to modify the ordinance regulating Portable Storage Units at the January 15, 2020 meeting.

2. Commissioner Good requested the City allow the portable storage units to remain on the property for longer duration of time should the property owner have an active building permit as the current ordinance does provide unit owners this privilege beyond 21 days.

3. The City Attorney's Office and the Planning and Economic Development staff have worked to revise the ordinance in line with Commission action.

4. The proposed revisions would allow a single family homeowner to obtain zoning approval for the portable storage unit to remain on property for up to 30 days or longer in conjunciton with a building permit as long as the property owner is actively pursuing completion of their permit.

5. Administration has reviewed proposed ordinance no. 2020-04 and recommends approval.

6. Second and final reading is tentatively scheduled for April 15, 2020.
