Title
SUBSTITUTE Amending Section 28.211 of the Madison General Ordinances to amend the definition of “Lodging Room” and correct cross-references to the impact fee ordinance.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amends the definition of “Lodging Room” in the zoning code to make it clear that this definition applies to park impact fee determinations. This ordinance is a companion ordinance to Legistar File No. 43500, an ordinance amending, repealing and recreating the park impact fee and park and open space land dedication requirements of the City. Additional changes are being made to cross-references in the zoning code to the impact fee ordinance so that any future changes to the impact fee ordinance do not leave erroneous references in the zoning code.
