  • DISCUSSION

       

    • See workshop items below. Board to hold a workshop following the regular meeting of December 8, 2016. Draft documents were included with this November 10th packet for your review.

Mr. David Dacquisto explains to the Board that on December 8, 2016 we will have our regular meeting and reconvene and start a Workshop. The Workshop will be to discuss the separation distance between residences accessory structures. Mr. Dacquisto states that the amendment he is proposing is for utility structures of 120 sf or less. Will look at eliminating the separation distance so that people can put the sheds closer to the house. Then we have two council requests will need to look at that deal with the annexed area. Mr. Dacquisto emphasizes that we really need to look at the zoning for the annexed area. He added that we do not have a duplex zone at the Village currently. We are looking at zoning that would make those districts comply as much as we can with Miami Shores zoning rules but recognizing they were developed under Miami Dade so trying to create as few non conformities as we can. Barry University has an RU1 and RU2 and BU3. Mr. Dacquisto says that Barry is fine with a university zone when he spoke to them but we do have to take action so will be discussing that at the next meeting as well. The Board asked questions. Mr. Dacquisto says that Barry has zoning that needs to be addressed at the workshop. The Chairman says that the Workshop can be at the Chambers. The Board asked questions and requested copies of the zoning code. Discussion took place about the new members of the Board going to see the annexed area.
