The Board of Commissioners adopted Ordinance No. 12-01, which amends Polk County Zoning Ordinance (PCZO) Chapters 112, 128.500, 128.700, and 128.800. The adopted updates reduce the required setbacks for fences and signs, and remove specific restrictions on the size, number, and allowed uses of garages in the Acreage Residential Five Acre (AR-5), the Acreage Residential Ten Acre (AR-10), and the Agriculture and Forestry Ten Acre (AF-10) zones. These amendments also update the standards for hardship dwellings in the AR-5 zone to be consistent with other zones that permit hardship dwellings, and amend the height restriction for accessory structures in the SR zone.
