A text amendment to Title 49.25.510(k), Accessory Apartments (AME2018 0001)

This ordinance would amend Title 49 with respect to accessory apartments.  The revisions are “housekeeping” in nature and do not change policy or intent.

Current code provides for both Director and Planning Commission approval for accessory apartments on oversized lots. The proposed amendment would remove the portions of code that call for Planning Commission approval, specifying only Director approval for these types of accessory apartments. This amendment would only change requirements relating to the approval of accessory apartments up to 1000 square feet on oversized lots.
