Ordinance Creation – 2nd Reading –
29717 – AN ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE 19 OF THE SALT LAKE COUNTY CODE OF ORDINANCES, BY ENACTING A NEW CHAPTER, 19.13, ENTITLED “MOUNTAIN RESORT ZONE.” THIS CHAPTER IS BEING ENACTED AS A NEW ZONING DISTRICT TO GOVERN LAND USE FOR THE SPECIFIC ISSUES RAISED BY THE UNIQUE, YEAR-ROUND NATURE AND FUNCTIONS OF MOUNTAIN RESORTS. THE CHAPTER OUTLINES QUALIFICATIONS TO OBTAIN THIS ZONING, THE USES AND OTHER REGULATIONS OF THE RECREATION DISTRICT AND VILLAGE DISTRICT THAT COMPRISE THE ZONE, HOW THE ZONE INTERACTS WITH THE FOOTHILLS AND CANYONS OVERLAY ZONE, THE PROCESS FOR REZONING AND DEVELOPMENT UNDER THE MOUNTAIN RESORT ZONE, DEFINES TERMS, AND OTHER RELATED PROVISIONS.
Increased population growth, improvements in construction technology, growing pressures on the watershed, and increased fire dangers, are a few of the factors that have created the need to revise the Foothills and Canyons Overlay Zone (FCOZ) ordinance and create a separate Mountain Resort Zone (MRZ) ordinance.
FCOZ is the portions of the Salt Lake County zoning ordinance that regulates construction and development in the canyons and foothills. They are located in two Chapters of the ordinance, 19.72 and 19.73. The FCOZ ordinances were adopted by the County Commission in 1997 and replaced an earlier Hillside Protection Ordinance.
A public hearing was held on September 15, 2016 to gather comments. A hearing will be held by the Salt Lake County Council on January 31st, 2017.
Questions and comments can be submitted to Curtis Woodward at firstname.lastname@example.org.
