body                

 

HEARING REQUIRED:  Public

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The City’s Land Development Code contains Design Standards and Guidelines that are applicable to all properties within the City of Pensacola.  Land Development Code Section 12-2-82 outlines these requirements and includes the requirement for building façade finishes that limits the percentage of unfinished metal.  Due to the specificity of the existing language, it currently creates opportunity for Quonset Hut style buildings to be permitted without complying with the façade finish requirement as other metal buildings are required to do.  The proposed amendment simplifies the code language and eliminates that opportunity, and also adds a definition of “wall” to the Land Development Code Section 12-14-1 Definitions. 

 

On February 13, 2018 the City’s Planning Board unanimously recommended approval of the proposed amendment.
