Title

Creating Section 28.183(6)(a)17. of the Madison General Ordinances to create a conditional use standard for projections into the capitol view height area.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Sec. 28.134(3) of the Madison General Ordinances, entitled “Capitol View Preservation,” allows the Plan Commission to allow certain projections into the capitol view height area as a conditional use.  Until now, the zoning code has not had a separate conditional use standard for this conditional use.  This ordinance therefore creates a new conditional use standard for allowing projections into the capitol view height area.

“17.                     When applying the above standards to an application for allowable projections into the capitol view height area, the Plan Commission shall only approve the projection if it determines the encroachment is the minimum necessary and does not significantly impact the long views of the State Capitol building.”
