Re:    Ordinance 16-018 - Scrivener's Error
Submitted For: Rebecca Grohall

Ordinance No. 16-018 correcting a scriveners error in classification of dwelling rentals in certain zoning districts within the use table.  SECOND READING
  • The City of Fort Pierce Commission, on November 4th, 2013, adopted Ordinance L-295 to create a Use Table to relocates all of the “permitted” and “conditional” uses for each zoning district into one combined table.
  • The Use Table created by Ordinance L-295 through scrivener’s error omitted the proper use classification of Dwelling Rentals within certain zoning districts; E-2, E-3, R-3, R-4, R-4A, & R-5.
  • Ordinance L-295 presented Dwelling Rentals as a prohibited use within these noted zoning districts; E-2, E-3, R-3, R-4, R-4A, & R-5, as opposed to the intended identification with a “C”, as eligible Conditional uses within said districts, as previously established within the City’s land development regulations.
  • The origin or cause for the Scrivener’s error is unknown; however staff has affirmed the Scrivener’s error as unintended.
  • It is appropriate to amend Ordinance No. L-295 via Ordinance 16-018 by setting forward a corrected distribution of P / C / - classification for the use category of Dwelling Rentals, identifying the use as a Conditional Use within the E-2, E-3, R-3, R-4, R-4A, & R-5 zoning districts.
  • Ordinance 16-018 will correct the Scrivener’s error the classification of Dwelling Rentals in the E-2, E-3, R-3, R-4, R-4A, and R-5 districts, assigning the accurate classification within the adopted use table.
