Algiers Multi-Family Housing Zoning Standards Study

The Algiers Multi-Family Housing Zoning Standards Study is a request by City Council Motion M-16-212 for the City Planning Commission to conduct a public hearing and study on zoning requirements and standards for multi-family housing in Planning Districts 12 and 13 to ensure quality, affordable and diverse housing options are aligned with the Master Plan. The study should consider whether changes should be made to the Bulk and Yard Regulations in the S-RM1 Suburban Multi-Family Residential District, whether there should be any additional regulations or standards made to the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance, and whether the current regulations and standards need to be amended, or if any additional supplemental use standards or a new zoning category are necessary to further regulate said use.

On September 20, 2016, the City Council granted the City Planning Commission an additional 60 days to complete the Algiers Multi-Family Housing Zoning Standards Study.  The additional time is needed to review materials and refine recommendations.
