Title

Amending Sections 28.151, 28.211, 28.032(1), 28.061(1), and 28.072(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to provide bulk requirements for community living arrangements, housing cooperatives, and lodging houses.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  The zoning code currently allows community living arrangements, housing cooperatives, and lodging houses.  However, the code does not provide bulk requirements for these uses like it does for single- and two-family dwellings.  As a result, the current code allows these uses but does not set bulk requirements for them.  This amendment applies the multi-family dwelling unit bulk requirements to these uses.  It also reclassifies “dormitory” to the more appropriate civic and institutional use.  This amendment will ensure that the code specifically provides bulk requirements for all residential uses, not just for single- and multi-family dwellings.
