City Council Update - August 20, 2018

Zoning ordinance amendments were approved following the second reading (articles 18, 25, 26), which simplifies temporary uses. As such, food trucks will be allowed to operate in any zoning district on private property, as long as the vendor and property owner have registered that intent with the City. New temporary uses that will be overseen by the Building Dept. official but do not require a permit include the temporary installation of dumpsters and port-a-potties.

Permits will now be required for:

  1. seasonal sales of perishable items by non-profit entities on private property
  2. temporary outdoor special events held on private property where the general public is invited
  3. The temporary construction of a building or office
  4. A temporary emergency residence.
