DATE: March 23, 2013
SUBJECT: Ordinance 13-12, Amending the Spit Zoning Map
After extensive review, the Homer Advisory Planning Commission recommends amendments to the Spit Zoning Map in accordance with the 2010 Homer Spit Comprehensive Plan.
The Spit zoning map was the subject of several Planning Commission meetings and was reviewed by the Port and Harbor Commission as well as the Economic Development Commission. Prior to producing the proposed amendments, the subject was intertwined with conversations regarding the proposed text amendment to the Marine Commercial and Industrial Districts.
The proposed amendments generally represent changed conditions reflected on the Spit. It provides a bit more Marine Commercial designations where that activity has been endorsed through permits and the Spit Comprehensive Plan. Lands that are tidal influenced or undevelopable are being designated as Conservation or Open Space Recreational. An excellent rundown of the changes is found with the memo supporting staff report 13-31.
Draft Ordinance 11-XX
