Zoning, storm water ordinances advance
Two proposals with the potential to impact development inside Algona took steps toward approval during the city council's meeting Monday, Dec. 2.
One of the proposals is an amendment to the city's residential zoning ordinance. The idea is to create a way to further concentrate housing in a new housing development through the use of a planned residential unit development overlay district.
Find out what it means in the Dec. 5 Advance.
You can see the ordinances as they are proposed below:

1. Intent. This district is intended to provide for innovative and comprehensively planned projects in the development of residential land by permitting flexibility in design, placement of buildings, and the use of open spaces, while at the same time retaining substantially the same density and area coverage permitted in the underlying District in which the project is being developed and where public utilities and services are available and to encourage a suitable living environment through the promotion of public health, safety, and welfare. The Planned Residential Unit Development Overlay District (PRUD) shall only be used when a land holding is planned and developed as a unit in accordance with an approved overall conceptual development plan and subsequent final development plan.
2. General. A PRUD may only be permitted to be superimposed over any Residential Single-Family District or Residential Multi-Family District, provided that all conditions or provisions of this section of the City Code and any additional requirements, as may be determined necessary to provide for the most efficient layout of a PRUD and its proper integration with the surrounding development, are met.
3. Densities Permitted. All types of residential housing units may be permitted within a PRUD, including but not limited to, single-family (attached or detached) and multi-family residential units. The number of dwelling units in a PRUD shall be determined by the minimum amount of square feet per dwelling unit as set forth below for each residential or multi-residential district superimposed by the PRUD. This density shall be applied to the total project area excluding that land devoted to streets (public and private) and also excluding private detached garages and private recreational facilities:

6. Special Exceptions. Certain uses that may be permitted in a PRUD shall be consistent to those permitted in the underlying zoning district of which a PRUD is superimposed.
7. Performance Standards. The performance standards of a PRUD shall be consistent to those allowed in the underlying zoning district of which a PRUD is superimposed.
8. Setback Requirements. The minimum front yard, minimum side yard, and minimum rear yard distance requirements of the underlying zoning district as found in the Bulk Regulations subsection shall only apply to those front, side or rear yards that are on the exterior boundary lines of a PRUD site or immediately adjacent to public or private streets.
9. Off-street Parking. The off-street parking requirements of a PRUD shall be consistent to those required in the underlying zoning district of which a PRUD is superimposed.
10. Off-street Loading. The off-street loading requirements of a PRUD shall be consistent to those required in the underlying zoning district of which a PRUD is superimposed.
11. Signs. Sign regulations shall be consistent to those required in the underlying zoning district of which a PRUD is superimposed.
