ORDINANCE NO. 961644

 

Amending Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance, by repealing Section 80-173, Specific requirements for URD district, and enacting in lieu thereof one new section of like number and subject matter.

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section A. That Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance, is hereby amended by repealing Section 80-173, Specific requirements for URD district, and enacting in lieu thereof one new section of like number and subject matter, to read as follows:

 

Sec. 80-173. Specific requirements for URD district.

 

(a) Use, height, floor area ratio, density, bulk and setback requirements. The use, height, floor area ratio, number of dwelling units, bulk and setbacks in the URD district shall be those as established on the development plan as approved by the city council, with the following exceptions:

 

(1) The uses in a URD district shall include residential, commercial or light industrial. No use shall be permitted which is deemed to be obnoxious or heavy industrial in the

opinion of the city council after recommendation by the city plan commission.

 

(2) The height of any building or structure within the proposed district shall be compatible with the land area and overall development, but in no event shall the

height exceed the height limits set forth in the airport zoning maps as provided in

chapter 6, unless a variance is granted by the board of zoning adjustment pursuant

to section 6-80 prior to issuance of a permit.

 

(3) The floor area ratio shall in no event exceed ten times the total lot area, excluding streets and alleys.

 

(b) Parking and loading facilities.

 

(1) Parking and loading facilities must be provided at a ratio in accordance with sections 80-444 and 80-445 unless, in the opinion of the city council, after recommendation

by the city plan commission, it is determined:

 

a. That a mixed use as proposed would demand less than the required parking

as otherwise provided; or

 

b. That an agency or corporation which provides to its employees incentives to

rideshare and use public transit would demand less than the required parking

as otherwise provided. Said agency or corporation shall provide an annual

report on the ridesharing/public transit program to the Director of the

Department of City Development on a yearly basis. The report shall contain

information on total number of employees, number of employees using

public transit, number of employees ridesharing, number of parking spaces

provided for the building, and number of spaces reserved for fleet vehicles.

Any other information on parking, leased or otherwise, provided for use by

customers and employees, as well as data on employees who may not be

located within the building on a full-time basis, shall be provided.

 

(2) Parking and loading facilities shall be located within the development area and at a site reasonably related to the intended use which the parking and loading is to serve.

 

(3) Parking facilities need not be in the same ownership as the intended uses which they are intended to serve; provided, however, that adequate provisions are made for the

availability of the parking for the intended uses in a recorded document.

 

(4) All parking and loading areas shall be surfaced and screened in accordance with the provisions in section 80-444.

 

(c) Lighting. All parking and loading facilities and areas of general usage shall be appropriately lighted to provide for safe and orderly usage thereof. Where such public areas are located adjacent to residential uses, all light fixtures shall be so arranged as to avoid glare on adjoining premises.

 

(d) Outdoor storage. No outdoor storage of any materials or any items shall be permitted unless the storage is delineated on the development plan and appropriate screening is provided.

 

Section B. That the Council finds and declares that before taking any action on the proposed amendment hereinabove, all public notices and hearings required by the Zoning Ordinance have been given and had.
