The applicant is requesting approval of a development plan to allow the third unit but has expressed willingness to remove the fourth unit. The third unit composes of the main and upper level of the structure and functions as a two bedroom unit. The fourth unit was in the basement level of the former garage.

PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Zach Nelson, City Planning and Development, gave the staff Report on the Ordinance. The previously approved tax incentive plan requires rezoning to District UR, thus the applicant is requesting to the proposed zoning. The applicant intends to renovate the building to accommodate a conversion to residential with limited office/retail at the ground level. The developers intend to utilize historic tax credits and as a result any changes to the building must conform to the Secretary of the Interior standards for historic preservation. As a consequence staff’s review is limited to the proposed uses and site improvements.

(Sub.)
Amending Chapter 88, Zoning and Development Code, to regulate provision of short term rental. (254-S-316)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "WITHOUT RECOMMENDATION AS A SECOND SUBSTITUTE"
Diane Binckley and Patty Noll, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The short term rental (STR) ordinance allows for two types of permits. The first is owner occupied short term rental (Type 1). This is for homeowners who seek to put their full-time residence on a platform for the purpose of renting it out to guests for a time less than thirty days per stay. Full time residence means the host inhabits the property for a minimum of 270 nights per year. The second type of STR is non-owner occupied short term rental (Type 2) which are for property owners who do not live on the property full time and rent out the property up to 365 days a year to guests for a time less than thirty days per stay. Type 1 is allowed via a registration program and will be $100 the first year and $50 in following years. The first year, the property owner is required to notify adjacent residential properties of the proposed use. They are not required to get approval of the neighbors. Type 2 is allowed via an administrative approval ($259 first year and $50 registration each year following) and the supportive signatures of 55% of adjacent residential property owners and tenants in the case of an apartment building. If the property owner is unable to obtain the 55% approval then they may pursue a special use permit ($595 application fee) through the standard process. If an SUP is granted then each following year the property owner must register and pay the $50 registration fee. Accessory dwelling units (ADU) are currently not allowed for rental to non-family members and therefore, this ordinance does not allow for short term rentals either. Staff has committed to reviewing all ADU rentals in the coming year. Short term rentals are allowed in all residential zones with limited allowances for multi-family residential in R zones. Multi-family dwelling units are allowed to be used for Type 1 rentals in residential zones, and are limited for Type 2 rentals. The Type 2 rentals are limited to 1 or 25% of the building in residentially zoned multi-family dwellings if signatures are obtained. Multi-family units are allowed to be used for Type 1 and Type 2 in B, D and M1 zones as well, but without the 25% limitation as described in the residentially zoned multi-family. To ensure the multi-family buildings do not become a hotel, each entity may have a maximum of four STRs per building. Hosts will be required to obtain a business license. STR’s will not be required to capture transient taxes. Taxing STR’s would require two steps: an enabling statute from the state legislature, and a vote by the people of Kansas City. It would be an extension of the Convention & Tourism tax, a 7.5% tax on the total stay that the guest would pay, and the host (or platform on behalf of the host) would collect. In an effort to treat STR’s similar to Bed and Breakfast, we added B&B into the R-6 zoning district. We also amended the Bed and Breakfast section to allow for a manager to operate the B&B 95 days a year to allow the owner to not be on site.
