KODIAK ISLAND BOROUGH <br />ORDINANCE NO. 2001 -07 <br />Introduced by: Manager Jensen <br />Requested by: Planning and Zoning <br />Commission <br />Drafted by: Community Development <br />Department <br />Introduced: 03/15/2001 <br />Public Hearing: 04/05/2001 <br />Adopted: 04/05/2001 <br />AN ORDINANCE OF THE KODIAK ISLAND BOROUGH ASSEMBLY <br />AMENDING KODIAK ISLAND BOROUGH CODE TITLE 17 ZONING <br />CHAPTER 17.21 B- BUSINESS DISTRICT SECTION 17.21.020 PERMITTED USES <br />WHEREAS, the Kodiak Island Borough Planning and Zoning Commission held a public <br />hearing on the proposed amendment at the February 21, 2001 regular meeting; and <br />WHEREAS, single family and duplex residential use within commercial structures in the <br />B- Business zoning district is an issue that has been addressed a number of times over the <br />years by the Planning and Zoning Commission and Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. The <br />proposed amendment is not a significant departure from prior discussions of this issue. <br />WHEREAS, the proposed amendment is intended to make the standard more flexible for <br />business owners, while preserving the intent and integrity of the B- Business zoning <br />district for commercial use and development. The requirement for owner occupancy of <br />a single - family residential use within a street level commercial structure will ensure that <br />the use is not incompatible with the commercial use of the site. <br />WHEREAS, the amendment will not increase the practical impact of a single - family <br />residential use within the B- Business zoning districts. Single- family residential use is still <br />required to be subsidiary and incidental to the principal use of the B- Business zoning <br />district for commercial purposes. <br />WHEREAS, the amendment, as recommended, will not change the street level character <br />of commercial structures in the B- Business zoning district. <br />WHEREAS, the amendment will not create any nonconforming uses, and may reduce <br />some existing nonconformities and violations within the B- Business zoning district. <br />WHEREAS, after reviewing the proposed amendment to allow street level single - family <br />residential use in the B- Business zone, the Kodiak Island Borough Planning and Zoning <br />Commission recommends that the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approve and adopt <br />the recommended changes to Kodiak Island Borough Code Section 17.21.020 Permitted <br />Uses; <br />Kodiak Island Borough, Alaska Ordinance No. 2001 -07 <br />Page 1 of 2 <br />
