Title
Amending Section 28.151 of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the zoning prohibition against street-facing automobile repair bays.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment addresses operational challenges arising from the new code. Specifically, this change will allow many existing properties to be in conformity with the new code. In addition, existing design standards better address the appearance of street-facing facades than a flat prohibition on automobile bays.
