Leander Planning & Zoning to discuss eliminating alley load requirement on small lots

Last Thursday, the Leander Planning & Zoning Commission discussed amending the composite zoning ordinance to remove the requirement of alley loaded garages on small lots.  This is a result of council direction from April to make changes to the requirement after the HBA and builder members participated in a workshop to educate the council on the challenges and expense of complying with the ordinance.

The Planning & Zoning Commission recommended that the council adopt the change on a 4-2 vote, with one commissioner absent from the meeting.  The ordinance will go before council in the coming weeks where it is expected to pass.
