Coming in 2019! Projects involving accessory structures and infill development will have a change in process. These changes are due to recently approved text changes. A text change is a proposal to modify an adopted ordinance. 

TC-2-18 | Accessory Buildings 

Starting on January 1, 2019 submittal requirements will increase for accessory structures:

  • Intake staff will need to see documentation for wall height, elevations, and percentage of yard the structure occupies.
  • Regulations for placement have also changed.

We will be updating our checklist as soon as possible. Before you submit, please reach out to staff for more information on the new requirements.

TC-3-18 | Infill Notice

Starting on February 4, 2019 projects that involve infill development will be required to notify anyone living within 100 feet of the property. This applies to:

  • New single-family homes;
  • Additions, and;
  • Accessory structures (seven feet or more in height) for single-family homes.

More information regarding the infill notice change will be available soon.

TC-7-17 | Residential Infill Compatibility Setbacks

To protect the integrity of existing residential developments, the rules for determining setbacks for new and redevelopment of residential lots are changing. As a result of this text change new processes will be in place by April 2019.

For questions or concerns about any of these text changes, please contact: Justin Rametta, Current Planning Manager at 919-996-2665.
