Title
Amending Sections 28.12(10)(g)1., 28.12(11)(i), and 28.183(5)(b)2.c. of the Madison General Ordinances to correct outdated or incorrect references, being an additional Attorney’s Revisor’s Ordinance.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This is an additional Attorney’s Revisor’s Ordinance that includes text amendments to Chapter 28, which must be referred to the Plan Commission. In current Chapter 28,
Sec. 28.12(10)(g) is amended to correct an outdated reference. Sec. 28.12(11)(i) is amended to clarify those who may appeal Plan Commission conditional use decisions. The current ordinance states that 20% of the neighboring owners “notified” may file an appeal. This has created some confusion when city staff provided notice to persons not entitled to notice. This amendment makes it clear that the appeal may be taken by 20% of those owners “entitled to receive notice under Sec. 29.12(11)(f), MGO.” In newly adopted Chapter 28, Sec. 28.183(5)(b)2.c. will reflect a similar amendment.
