SUMMARY NO. 22721 ORDINANCE NO.
An ordinance to amend Chapter 40, Zoning, more particularly Article V.
Suburban District S-1, Article VII Suburban Residential District R-1B,
Article VIII Rural Residential District R-1C, and Article IX Rural Residential
District R-1D, of the Code of Ordinances of the Code of Jefferson Parish,
by eliminating the exception that allows established residential sites to be
subject to all of the area requirements of the next smaller single-family
residential zoning district to which it conforms and replacing this exception
with one that allows established residential sites to be subject to only the
side yard requirements of the next smaller single-family residential zoning
district that corresponds to the substandard lot width of the established
residential site; by calculating rear yard in the S-1, R-1B, R-1C, and R-1D
districts using percentage of lot depth as currently required in the R-1A
Single-Family Residential District; and by providing for related matters
such as consistent language and formatting. (Parishwide)
WHEREAS, many established development sites within the large lot districts of
S-1, R-1B, R-1 C, and R-1D lack the required area, width, or depth of the district; and
WHEREAS, existing regulations in the large lot districts allow an established
development site that is substandard in area, width, or depth to meet all of the area
requirements of the next smaller district even though the lot may be deficient in only one
or two of the area requirements; and
WHEREAS, allowing all area requirements of the next smaller zoning district to
apply defeats the intent of the large-lot districts by increasing the buildable area and
density; and
WHEREAS, limiting the application of the step-down provisions and creating a
standard rear yard provision in the large lot districts will further the intent of these
districts; and
WHEREAS, a public hearing was held by the Planning Advisory Board in
accordance with law. Now, therefore,
