P&Z commision tables home base business changes
KINGMAN — The planning and zoning commission postponed Wednesday a change to the county ordinance dealing with home base businesses in residential areas until their next meeting in February.
The changes would be based on a recent state bill that limits a maximum of two people who are not residents of a residence to be employed at the home-based business. The changes would protect residential areas from excess noise and reduce on-street parking congestion and traffic in residential areas.
Commissioner Mehdi Azarmi said the change is vague with a one size fits all approach. He also questioned a 24 inch by 24-inch sign regulation. He recommended that the item be tabled so the legal department could look at any changes.
Commissioner Bill Abbott was concerned with assisted living facilities that house 10 or more residents, which is different than an accountant who works out of their home.
In other action, the commission approved a change to the county general plan, a rezone and a special permit to allow for a propane storage and distribution tank in Golden Valley west of Interstate 40.
The rezone on the 6-acre lot would be to heavy manufacturing zone. The permit is for a maximum 30,000-gallon propane storage tank.
The planning and zoning issues will go before the county supervisors for approval at their Feb. 5 board meeting.
