Ordinance/Resolution
Title:

ZA-06-18 - An Ordinance of the City of Punta Gorda, Florida, amending Punta Gorda Code Chapter 26, “Land Development Regulations”, Article 3, “Regulating Districts”, Section 3.13 “Special Residential Overlay District”, Subsection (l), “Storage of vehicles and watercraft”, to clarify provisions for the storage of small watercraft on racks on a dock; renumbering accordingly; providing for conflict and severability; and providing an effective date. SECOND READING

Funds: N/A     
Recommended Action:

City Council adoption of the ordinance as amended at this second reading.

Summary:

City Code currently allows for small watercraft to be stored entirely on a dock; however, it does not permit storage racks. The proposed amendment will allow for the placement of up to 2 storage racks on a dock with a maximum of 2 small watercraft stored on each. The racks may be affixed to the dock structure but cannot be secured to the seawall or seawall cap in any manner.

Urban Design and the Planning Commission recommended approval of ZA-06-18. At first reading on September 17, 2018, City Council amended the proposed ordinance to remove the limitation on the number of racks which can be placed on docks exceeding 80 feet.
