Commercial Zoning Districts (Citywide ): APPROVED
On the request of Draper City, this application is a request for approval of a text amendment that would apply citywide. The proposed zone is called the Commercial Buffer Zone (CBU) and would have a CBU designation on the zoning maps. The purpose of the amendment is to create a buffer area between commercial and residential development. There has been concerns recently with applicants obtaining a zone change for commercial projects that may have one border along other commercial properties, but will mostly be built in and affect primarily residential areas. The intent of this zone is to provide a lower intensive zoning option to help those commercial projects better relate with the residential neighborhoods they may the next to. The proposed CBU zone will be located in Chapter 9-11 (Commercial Uses) in the Draper City Municipal Code (DCMC). The Planning Commission heard this item at the 7/23/20 meeting and made a positive recommendation on a 4-1 vote.
