Alderman Trent Linville and the City of Spring Hill Development Services Department held a listening session on Recreational Vehicle Storage on June 1, 2023, from 5:30 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at City Hall 199 Town Center Parkway. You can watch the full meeting in the video above.
The purpose of this listening session was to receive input from the City of Spring Hill community on amending the Recreational Vehicle Storage regulations (10.11 Unified Development Code).
The current regulations have been in effect since the adoption of the Unified Development Code in 2018. The current regulations do not permit the storage of recreational vehicles in the front or corner yards (the area between a house and the street) and require recreational vehicles stored in the rear or interior side yard to be screened by a solid wall or fence. Following community concerns, Alderman Trent Linville initiated a zoning text amendment for the Planning Commission and Board of Mayor and Alderman to review and make a determination to approve or deny the amendment.
The Draft amendment would permit Recreational Vehicles to be stored in driveways with a setback of 5 feet from sidewalks (or when sidewalks are not present 5 feet from the property line) to ensure pedestrian, ADA, and traffic safety. Below are the following documents prepared by staff for review:
