The City is working on both short- and long-term solutions to regulate development around single-family homes in Greenville neighborhoods.
To provide protection to neighborhoods while the City works to update its development code, City Council adopted a resolution in April 2021 directing staff to address design and dimension standards and project and buffering requirements. The amendments apply to non-residential uses and multi-family uses that are adjacent to detached single-family homes.
PROPOSED TEXT AMENDMENTS
The third round of text amendments (below) were approved by the Planning Commission at its July 15 meeting, and by City Council in August.
ADAPTIVE REUSE: Off-Street Parking and Loading
Proposed Change Z-28-2021
Currently, the Land Management Ordinance does not provide specific parking reductions for adaptive reuse projects.
We propose expanding the neighborhood meeting requirement to multi-family uses and any application that requires a public hearing, where the proposed project abuts an existing single-family detached use. The amendment also strongly encourages attendance at these meetings and establishes appropriate elements to include within the staff report.
