    P18TA00002       INFILL OVERLAY ZONE - ZONING CODE TEXT AMENDMENT

    A text amendment proposed by Pima County to add a new overlay zone called “Infill Overlay Zone” (Ch. 18.68) to encourage development in underutilized areas through incentives and to add the first designated infill overlay zone area – Kleindale/Dodge - with its unique set of development standards.  The incentives include waiving certain development requirements, allowing additional uses, and expediting the development process.  The overlay zone would overlap the existing, underlying zoning.  The proposed text amendment is consistent with the revitalization, redevelopment, and economic development policies and goals of the Pima County Comprehensive Plan (Pima Prospers).  The Infill Overlay Zone text amendment was heard at the August 29, 2018 Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing.  The Commission voted to recommend approval.  The text amendment is scheduled for the November 6, 2018 Board of Supervisors public hearing.

    P18TA00005       MEDICAL MARIJUANA – DESIGNATED CAREGIVER CULTIVATION LOCATION TEXT AMENDMENT

    A text amendment proposed by Pima County will allow a designated caregiver to cultivate medical marijuana in the RH and GR-1 zones with an approved Type I Conditional Use Permit and will repeal the Type III Conditional Use Permit requirement in the CB-2 zone.  All existing conditions and requirements of a medical marijuana dispensary off-site cultivation location would still apply, except that the cultivation location would be limited to 250 square feet.  The Medical Marijuana Designation Caregiver Cultivation Location Zoning Code text amendment is scheduled to be heard by the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing scheduled for September 26, 2018. 



    P18TA00008       FOOD ACCESS #3 COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY - ZONING CODE TEXT AMENDMENT

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and US Department of Agriculture have identified many areas in Pima County as food deserts – low income areas with limited access to affordable fresh food. The purpose of the text amendment is to reduce the regulatory requirements for permitting non-profit food pantries in underserved areas of Pima County to provide food relief and limited material assistance to disadvantaged residents. The amendment creates a definition for community food pantry, and provides standards for establishing food pantries as a conditionally permitted use in a number of rural zones (RH Rural Homestead, GR-1 Rural Residential, SH Suburban Homestead), and as a permitted use in the MU Multiple Use and TR Transitional zones.

     

    P18TA00009      UPDATE 2018 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE - BUILDING CODE TEXT AMENDMENT

    A joint Pima County / City of Tucson Building Code Committee undertook an update of local building codes to the 2018 International Building Codes. The county’s building code (Pima County Code Title 15) was updated and approved by the Board of Supervisors on October 16, 2018. Similar building code amendments were adopted by Tucson’s Mayor and Council on October 9, 2018, bringing the county and city’s building code requirements into parity. One minor difference in the amendments approved was Appendix T of the 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), Solar-Ready Provisions – Detached One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Townhouses, was not included in the county building code update. County staff has been directed to adopt Appendix T of the 2018 IRC, subject to local amendments, to the county building code.
