The Huntsville Town Planning Commission would like to hear public opinion on uses of Accessory Buildings. A public hearing will be held Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 7 p.m. at Huntsville Town Hall. In the interim, the Planning Commission would like to hear from residents. Fact Sheet and proposed ordinance 15.6.2 can be found on the website huntsvilletown.com.

Please mail to PO Box 267, Huntsville, Utah 84317 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The following is background:
The General Plan adopted by Huntsville Town provides overarching conceptual guidance with respect to the future development and land use inside the municipal boundaries of the Town. Within the General Plan is a vision statement that prescribes the preservation of the Town’s semi-rural and low population density character to maintain the high quality lifestyle of residents. In an effort to conform to the General Plan, only one single-family dwelling is currently allowed per residential lot (Title 15.6.2.A). However, there has been a trend within Huntsville Town to construct additional large accessory buildings that incorporate sleeping quarters, bathrooms, and even kitchens. The construction of these types of structures appears to conflict with the General Plan and potentially Huntsville Town ordinances inasmuch as they increase the building density, enable long-term habitation (essentially becoming an additional single-family dwelling on the lot), and facilitate the potential for illicit use (i.e., short term rental). In an effort to align more closely with the General Plan and remove the incentive for unauthorized habitation or use, Title 15.6.2 is proposed to be amended to limit the amount and types of plumbing fixtures that are allowed in accessory buildings on residential lots. The proposed amendment also removes redundant references to authorized uses within the
Residential Zone R-1.
Summary of Proposed Changes:
Allow no more than one sink, one toilet, one water heater, and one washing machine connection, total, for all accessory buildings per residential lot.
Prohibit any other additional interior plumbing fixtures (including tubs, showers, etc.) within accessory buildings.
Prohibit kitchens and other cooking amenities (including ovens, cooking stoves, etc.) within accessory buildings.
