Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Section 5:10.14.A(3) Outdoor Places of Recreation in the Office/Research/Limited Industrial (ORL) Zoning District (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 0 Nays) (Ordinance No. ORD-14-15)
Memorandum
The proposed amendment will revise the special exception uses allowed in the ORL district to remove the limitation that places of recreation be located within an enclosed building. The resulting language would allow both indoor and outdoor places of recreation, including tennis courts, to be approved by the Planning Commission if the use meets special exception use standards.

The City Planning Commission recommended approval of the proposed ordinance amendments at its meeting of June 3, 2014.
