Title

Amending Subdivision (a) of Subsection (3) of Section 28.068 of the Madison General Ordinances to allow front yard setbacks for planned multi-use sites in the Commercial Center (CC) District to be measured from interior private access roads.

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:  This amendment will allow front yard setbacks for planned multi-use sites in the Commercial Center (CC) District to be measured from interior private access road curb faces or edges or pavement.  This will allow large planned sites to position interior buildings adjacent to private access roads similar to exterior buildings adjacent to public streets.

This setback shall allow for a single drive aisle and two (2) rows of parking or landscaped area. This setback may be extended to a maximum of one hundred (100) feet if traffic circulation, drainage and or other site design issues are shown to require additional space.
