Title

Amending portions of Madison General Ordinances 28.061, 28.082, and 28.091 to allow Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plants as a Permitted/Conditional use in all Mixed-Use and Commercial Districts and the Suburban Employment (SE) District, Suburban Employment Center (SEC) District, Employment Campus (EC), and Agricultural District; amending Madison General Ordinance 28.151 to allow Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plants using solar as an energy source as a permitted use in the districts listed above; and amending Madison General Ordinance 28.211 to eliminate the superfluous definition of Electric Power Production from the Zoning Code.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment will allow Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plants as a permitted/conditional use in all mixed-use and commercial districts and the Suburban Employment (SE), Suburban Employment Center (SEC), Employment Campus (EC), and Agricultural District (A).  Under this ordinance, in the Agricultural District any Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plant using solar as an energy source will be a permitted use.  As such, this will expand the areas in the City were such a use is allowed and, in at least one district, make solar energy plants a permitted use.
