5.A. ANNEXATION ZONING DESIGNATION Z-20-2: City staff has received a petition to annex lands on Riverside Drive totaling approximately 0.93 acres

identified by PIN 311-16-04-0015. The lot is currently unincorporated and zoned MSF10 (MSF 10 Residential District) by Horry County. The petition also reflects the requested City of North Myrtle Beach zoning district of R-1 (Single-Family Residential Low-Density) and will be heard concurrently.
Tagged Interests: beach, zoning, and annexation

Existing Conditions and Surrounding Land Uses: The subject property area is contiguous to the corporate boundary of the City of North Myrtle Beach

and is zoned MSF10 (MSF 10 Residential) under Horry County jurisdiction. Located on Riverside Drive and currently unoccupied, the subject parcel is identified as Lot 10 of the Riverside Campground subdivision. Surrounding land uses are R-1 (Single-Family Residential Low-Density) within the adjacent City parcels; adjacent unincorporated county parcels are zoned MSF10 and CFA (Commercial Forest Agriculture).

Planning Commission Action: As per the Zoning Ordinance Section 23-4, Amendments, the Planning Commission shall prepare a report and make

recommendations on any proposed amendment to the North Myrtle Beach Zoning Ordinance, including the Zoning Map, stating its findings and its evaluation of the request. In making its report, the Commission shall consider the following factors:
Tagged Interests: planning, ordinance, boards and commissions, beach, and zoning

a) The relationship of the request to the Comprehensive Plan:

Tagged Interests: strategic

The Future Land Use map contained in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan recommends Residential Suburban as a land use class for the subject area. The

principal permitted uses noted in the compliance index include primarily single-family lots, small farms and farm related uses such as produce stands, and mobile homes on individual lots. The recommended primary zoning district is R-1; R-1A and R-1B are the secondary zoning district alternatives.
Tagged Interests: strategic, agriculture, zoning, compliance, and mobile homes

The proposed zoning designation, R-1 (Single-Family Residential Low-Density), is a recommended zoning district within the Compliance Index for the

subject property.
Tagged Interests: zoning, property, and compliance

b) Whether the request violates or supports the Plan:

Chapter 5, The Way We Grow, of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan identifies the Residential Suburban future land use classification as follows: The purpose

of this classification is to define, protect, and provide low density, single-family detached housing areas where designated, and to prohibit any development that would compromise existing residential characteristics. In addition, these areas are intended to provide for in-fill and expansion of existing neighborhoods and subdivisions. Standards and densities for these areas are designated to reflect existing conditions. This area is also intended to allow incorporation of property west of the waterway at densities typical of inland development. Primarily single-family lots, small farms and farm related uses such as produce stands, and mobile homes on individual lots, excluding large mobile home parks, are compatible uses here. This category allows up to five dwelling units per acre (du/acre).
Tagged Interests: expansion, strategic, agriculture, development, subdivision, parks, Development, property, mobile homes, neighborhood, and housing

The proposed R-1 zoning is consistent with the Residential Suburban land use classification found in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan.

Tagged Interests: strategic and zoning

c) Whether the uses permitted by the proposed change would be appropriate in the area concerned:

The purpose of the R-1 zoning district is, To preserve and protect the character of existing neighborhoods and subdivisions, and to prohibit any uses

which would compromise or alter existing conditions and uses. Also, these districts are intended to encourage residential infilling and expansion of existing neighborhoods and subdivisions. Development land uses permitted in each are designed to reflect existing conditions and enhance the prospects of like development.

Tagged Interests: planning, boards and commissions, and annexation

The uses permitted in the R-1 district would be appropriate in the area.

d) Whether adequate public school facilities, roads and other public services exist or can be provided to serve the needs of the development likely

to take place as a result of such change, and the consequence of such change:
Tagged Interests: streets, development, services, Development, Public Works, public works, and education

Current public rights-of-way serve this area via the existing, county-maintained Riverside Drive.

e) Whether the proposed change is in accord with any existing or proposed plans for providing public water supply and sanitary sewer to the area:

Tagged Interests: sewer, utility, Utility, and water

Tagged Interests: sewer, utility, Utility, water, and property

As a matter of policy, no request to change the text of the ordinance or the map shall be acted upon favorably, except:

Tagged Interests: ordinance and policy

(a) Where necessary to implement the comprehensive plan, or (b) To correct an original mistake or manifest error in the regulations or map, or (c) To

recognize substantial change or changing conditions or circumstances in a particular locality, or (d) To recognize changes in technology, the style of living, or manner of doing business.

Tagged Interests: planning and boards and commissions

7.C. ZONING TEXT AMENDMENT ZTX-20-03: City staff has initiated a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to revise the definition of Sleeping Area.

Tagged Interests: ordinance and zoning

Background: Definitions of short-term rental and sleeping area were created in 2018 as a placeholder within the zoning ordinance, at a time when the

City was contemplating a subsequent amendment to regulate short- term rentals through zoning. The additional amendments were placed on hold to allow time to study the problem further. The results of those studies have led the City in another direction, determining that a more suitable location for a short-term rental ordinance is in a different section of the City Code, not zoning.
Tagged Interests: ordinance, zoning, rental, and short-term rental

Further, the definition established for a sleeping area was crafted to eliminate the common practice of property owners labeling rooms as something

other than bedrooms, then populating them with beds and sleeper sofas to get around size limitations that have been in the ordinance for nearly 20 years. The existing definition says everything is a sleeping area unless it is a hallway, kitchen, bathroom, closet, stairwell or mechanical room.
Tagged Interests: ordinance and property

Since then, staff has come to realize the practical application concerns of so strict a definition, and it was suggested that we exempt one living

room, one dining room, and one multi-purpose room (such as a game room, media room, office, study, etc.) from being considered a sleeping area. Hence this amendment.

The current definition of sleeping area is found in Section 23-2. Definitions, of the Zoning Ordinance:

Tagged Interests: ordinance and zoning

Sleeping area: As it relates to short term rentals, a sleeping area is any room (including bedrooms) that is not one of the following: A kitchen, a

hallway not exceeding seven (7) feet in width, a mechanical room designed primarily for containing HVAC equipment or hot water heaters or electrical panels or similar, a bathroom, a closet not exceeding seventy (70) square feet in size, or an elevator or stairwell.
Tagged Interests: equipment, utility, Utility, water, rental, and short-term rental

Proposed Changes: Staff is proposing a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to revise the definition of Sleeping area relating to short-term

rentals. The amendment seeks to exempt additional areas from counting towards sleeping areas. This definition will be referred to in the final short-term rental ordinance currently being drafted for another section of City Code.
Tagged Interests: ordinance, zoning, rental, and short-term rental

The proposed new definition would appear in the Ordinance as follows (new matter underlined):

Tagged Interests: ordinance

Sec. 23-2. - Definitions.

Generally. For the purpose of this chapter, certain words and terms are herein defined. Words used in the present tense shall include the future;

words in the singular number include the plural number, and words in the plural number include the singular number; the word lot includes the word plot ; the word building includes the word structure ; the word shall is mandatory and not directory. Any words not herein defined shall carry their customary dictionary definition.

excluded from the total sleeping area count. Furthermore, any room, regardless of how labeled on the plan set, that has an ensuite full bathroom

and/or closet, shall be considered a sleeping area.

a) The relationship of the request to the Comprehensive Plan:

Tagged Interests: strategic

The Future Land Use map contained in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan recommends Highway Commercial as a land use class for the subject area. The

principal permitted uses noted in the compliance index include commercial, office, and business uses; this land use class is intended to provide commercial opportunities where large-scale commercial projects may take place with minimal impact on contiguous residential development; mixed use development may occur over time and is encouraged. The recommended primary zoning district is Highway Commercial (HC); General Commercial (GC) and Neighborhood Commercial (NC) are the secondary zoning district alternatives.

The proposed zoning designation of HC for a portion of the annexed property is a recommended zoning district within the Compliance Index for the

subject property. The proposed zoning designation of R-2A for the other portion of the annexed property is not a recommended zoning district within the Compliance Index for the subject property. However, staff notes that the proposed R-2A district area would allow for a more buffered land use for the neighboring residential development located within the county s jurisdiction on Carolina Pointe Way.

b) Whether the request violates or supports the Plan:

Chapter 5, The Way We Grow, of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan identifies the Highway Commercial future land use classification as follows: This is a

broad-based commercial, office, and business classification. It is intended to provide commercial opportunities to the traveling public and areas in the community where large-scale commercial projects may take place with minimal impact on contiguous residential development. This classification is designed to support local shopping, regional shopping centers, and business complexes. It will accommodate a wide range of business and commercial uses, clustered where feasible, for cumulative attraction and located for optimum accessibility. Many of the existing uses here are already highway-oriented commercial and are likely to remain, but mixed use development may occur in this designation over time and should be encouraged.

inconsistent with the broadly-based commercial, office, and business uses of the Highway Commercial land use classification found in the 2018

Comprehensive Plan. However, the R-2A district would fulfill the goals of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan by minimizing impact on, Contiguous residential development. Additionally, the increased midrise density available in the R-2A district would be well served by the road access available at this location.

c) Whether the uses permitted by the proposed change would be appropriate in the area concerned:

The purpose of the HC zoning district is, To provide commercial opportunities to the traveling public, and areas in the community where large scale

commercial projects may take place with minimal impact on contiguous residential development. The purpose of the R-2A zoning district is, To permit mid-rise multifamily development in areas of the community in response to the need for such housing, while safeguarding existing residential values, and environmental resources, and guarding against overloading existing infrastructure.

The uses permitted in the HC and R-2A districts would be appropriate in the area.

to take place as a result of such change, and the consequence of such change:
