Overview: A change to the Land Use Management Ordinance to set minimum parking requirements in Town Center zoning districts and offer parking payment-in-lieu options.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt a resolution calling a public hearing on September 22, 2021 for a Land Use Management Ordinance Text Amendment to Section 5.9.2.

Additional Information:
* The proposed Land Use Management Ordinance text amendments would require a minimum of 50 percent of the parking proposed in a Town Center zoning district as a payment-in-lieu and provide minimum parking standards in the Town Center zoning districts. Currently properties within the Town Center zoning districts do not have minimum parking standards.
* A proposed Town Code amendment would be considered to update the relevant sections of the Town Code and include a reference to the fee schedule for the appropriate parking payment-in-lieu amount.
* A Council policy to be considered would include an expectation of providing 50 percent of the required parking as a payment-in-lieu for projects receiving Council entitlements in Town Center zoning districts.
