Chapter 50 - Zoning Proposed Amendments and Additions – Special City Council Meeting – Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at 6:00 P.M.
City Council will hold the first of two special meetings on Wednesday, June 17, at 6:00 pm which will involve a public hearing on the proposed amendments to Chapter 50 of the Code of Ordinances as recommended by the Zoning Commission, receive public input and hear a presentation from City staff on proposed changes to Chapter 50 - Zoning. The Zoning Commission recommended moving forward with the new provisions in Chapter 50 which would allow short-term rentals to operate in the City. The short-term rental language is in sections 50-516 through 50-524 of the proposed amendments to the Zoning Ordinance.
The short-term rental provisions permit requirements through an application and a fee under section 50-519 to cover administrative costs. Section 50-520 outlines operational requirements for a short-term rental in Castle Hills. The last two Zoning Commissions have done a considerable amount of work which includes updates to home occupation and an extensive amount of research on what other cities have done to allow and regulate to short-term rentals.
The second public presentation will be held on June 24, 2020 at 6:00 pm, a copy of the proposed changes and addition to Chapter 50 – Zoning are available on the City’s website.
