Tonight: Woodside may increase house-size allowances

 

The Woodside Town Council tonight (Jan. 10) will hold a public hearing and may introduce an ordinance that would increase the maximum allowable house sizes in town, with the increase based in part on the zoning area in which the property is located.

The council meets at 7:30 p.m. at Independence Hall at 2955 Woodside Road. The public hearing on house size is the first item of public business on the agenda.

In brief, the council will be considering the following proposals from the Planning Commission regarding homes for which floor area exceptions have been granted:

• For the R-1 zoning area, a cap of 4,200 square feet.

• For the SR zoning area, a cap of 5,500 square feet on a parcel of at least 1.5 acres.

• For the RR zoning area, a cap of 8,800 square feet on a parcel of at least 4.5 acres.

• For the SCP-5 zoning area, a cap of 8,800 square feet on a parcel of at least 7.5 acres.

• For the SCP-7.5 zoning area, a cap of 8,800 square feet on a parcel of at least 11.25 acres.

• For the SCP-10 zoning area, a cap of 8,800 square feet on a parcel of at least 15 acres.
