City Initiated Flag Lot Text Amendment: ITEM CONTINUED TO FUTURE CITY COUNCIL MEETING
On the request of Draper City for approval of a Text Amendment to Draper City Municipal Code (DCMC) 9-27-090, Flag Lots. On April 7, 2020 the City Council passed Ordinance No. 14-27, a temporary land use regulation, which prohibits new development applications proposing to erect, construct, reconstruct or alter any structure on a flag lot or proposing to subdivide land to create a flag lot. The temporary land use regulation was enacted after members of the City Council expressed sentiment that the current development standards regarding flag lots do not meet the goals and objectives of the zoning ordinance in that the current code does not adequately address the burden placed on existing residents surrounding a flag lot and approving new development on flag lots will only exacerbate the negative impacts of flag lots on existing residents. The temporary land use regulation is set to expire on October 7, 2020, or earlier, after public hearings are held and amended provisions are presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council for review and adoption. The Planning Commission will be reviewing proposed language and making a recommendation to het City Council. The Planning Commission heard this item at their September 3, 2020 meeting and forwarded a positive recommendation on a 5-0 vote with two minor modifications to the text. These modifications have been reflected in the ordinance submitted for Council review.
