City Holds Public Hearing for New Ordinances

Ordinances will regulate height of structures and aggregation of lots in single family residential districts

Nearly 100 people turned out for the public hearing held on Wednesday, July 13 to voice opinions on two ordinances under consideration by the St. Augustine City Commission. The ordinances under consideration will change height requirements and lot development in single family residential areas in the City.

The ordinances are the result of over a year-and-a-half of work by the Aggregation Task Force, a body appointed by the Commission to research and draft ordinances that would address concerns over new patterns of development in the City. The proposed ordinances were presented to the Commission by the Aggregation Task Force at the public hearing.

As proposed the ordinances will affect non-conforming lots by:

  • Limiting the maximum height of structures in proportion to the size of the lot; and
  • Combining two or more lots on which a single structure was built so that in the future the lots may not be separated for the purpose of constructing separate structures.

The meeting was held at the County Auditorium at the St. Johns County Administration Complex in anticipation that attendance would exceed the capacity of The Alcazar Room, the regular location of the City Commission meetings at St. Augustine’s City Hall. The City investigated holding the public hearing at Flagler College Auditorium, but that location is not available during the week the Commission chose to hold the meeting.

The Commission originally planned to consider the two ordinances on first reading at its regular meeting held on Monday, June 11, but decided to wait for any formal consideration until after the public hearing. The ordinances will be on the agenda for first reading at the Commission’s next regular meeting on Monday, July 25th and if passed are likely to be considered on second reading on Monday, August 8. Regular Commission meetings are held at 5:00pm in the Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King Street.

Copies of the proposed ordinances may be obtained at City Hall in the City Clerk’s Office (elevator "B" 2nd floor) or in the Neighborhood Council Office (first floor) or by clicking on the links below.
