Zoning Ordinance Discussion of the draft dated 4/19/13 included:
--Language regarding adult foster care family homes (six residents or less; definitions page 3, Section 4.05 page 20)reflects federal/state law that protects certain classes of these homes as a permitted use in residential districts.
--Language regarding family day care homes (six children or less; definitions page 5, Section 4.05 page 21, Section 7.04 page 50) and group day care homes (twelve children or less; definitions page 6, Section 4.05 page 21, Section 7.04 page 50) reflects federal/state law that this may be a special use in residential districts. Villages have the authority to regulate such homes according to standards and to determine compatibility with the neighborhood.
--Language regarding places of worship (definitions page 7, Section 4.05 page 20, Section 7.04 page 44) reflects federal legislation protecting such places from zoning discrimination. These are listed as a special use in the residential district.
--Regarding day care homes and places of worship the consultant advised inclusion which allows for review/regulation by BHV via the zoning ordinance rather than omitting these uses and having a challenge decided in court
--Language regarding wireless communications (definitions page 10, Section 4.06 page 21, Section 7.04 page 44) adheres to federal standards that have recently been changed to require colocation when feasible.
--Off street parking chart (page 58). Mr. Carlisle will update this chart.
