Planning Commission's zoning change spares some carports
Placeholder Image
McMinnville Planning Commission members decided to try to change city code rather than tell more than 40 property owners their carports are illegally placed and must be moved.Planning Commission members have spent three months trying to figure out what to do about carports throughout the city that were placed since 2010 without permits and do not adhere to the city’s current code. The committee met Tuesday to continue deliberations.“The decision was made to recommend to the full board a zoning change,” said Planning and Zoning supervisor Josh Baker. “If the board approves the changes, it will make at least half of the carports OK. Those placed without a permit will still have to get one, but they won’t be told to move their carports.”Listed is the current code with recommended changes in parenthesis.
