...body
EXPLANATION: The agent, Jon Schmidt, Schmidt Nichols, on behalf of the owner, Sperin, LLC, is seeking a Zoning Text Amendment to modify Sec. 6.5.8.C of the Land Development Regulations. The amendment would allow eligible buildings within Residential E, F, G and H to have a maximum building height of 72 feet.

Staff has reviewed the proposed amendment and has proposed alternative text. Staff does not support the text amendment as proposed and recommends approval of Ordinance No. 2019-06 with the changes provided allowing a maximum height limitation of 56 feet on Residential E, F, G and H properties within planned developments.

At the August 14, 2019 Planning, Zoning and Adjustment Board (PZAB) meeting, the Board recommended approval of the Zoning Text Amendment as recommended by staff with a 6-1 vote. The applicant conceded to the staff recommended height limit.

At the September 24, 2019 Village Council meeting, the Council approved the Zoning Text Amendment with a 5-0 vote and asked staff to propose more options for justifying a height increase.
