Request for a Special Use Permit for an Accessory Apartment/Au Pair Suite in accordance with Section 5.12 of the Redding Zoning Regulations. To receive: set public hearing date.
The Commission briefly reviewed the application. Mr. Miyashiro raised a question regarding 5.12.4 (a) which requires an attached apartment be in within an existing house; Mr. Curatilo clarified that his house will be shortly under construction and the apartment is proposed to be incorporated into the house. The Commission discussed the intent of the regulations and suggested the text may need clarification.
Mr. Ogonek moved that the Commission accept the application and set the public hearing for September 9, 2020. Mr. Miyashiro seconded the motion and it was carried unanimously.
Ms. Atamian noted that there seems to be different drafts of the Zoning Regulations on the town website. Ms. Pardee said she would look into this with the Town Clerk. Ms. Pardee also said she would make sure each Commissioner had up to date regulations prior to the next meeting.
