RECOMMENDATION

Continue the public hearing to January 16, 2007.

DISCUSSION

In response to City Council direction at the November 7, 2006, meeting, Staff and the City Attorney are still fine-tuning the definition of cargo containers to avoid conflicts with the Building Code regarding the requirement for foundations for cargo containers’ long-term use and placement (i.e., more than one (1) year). Staff will bring back revised language to address this issue at a future meeting. In addition, Staff will seek further City Council input regarding potential conflicts between the Cargo Container Code Amendment and the landslide moratorium regulations and Open Space-Hazard (OH) zoning district standards.
