MetadataShow full item record
This package of code updates includes revisions to Newport Zoning Ordinance (NZO) Sections 2-4-2, Accessory Uses and Structures; 2-4-13, Home Occupations; and 2-6-8, Enforcement. Changes to the accessory use rules clarify the process for determining when a structure is accessory to a primary use, provide for placement of accessory structures on parcels or lots adjacent to the primary use, and allow for larger structures if they meet setbacks. Updates to the home occupation rules eliminated outdated requirements, clarify standards, and add revocation provisions if standards are not followed. Updates to enforcement language clarify that code enforcement staff may inspect properties at reasonable times.
