ORDINANCE NO. 370
AN ORDINANCE ADOPTING A TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON NON-RESIDENTIAL USES WITHIN THE SD AND RR5
The City Council of the City of Crosslake, in the County of Crow Wing, State of Minnesota, does ordain as follows:
SECTION 1. INTENT AND PURPOSE
The current zoning ordinance allows for many non-residential uses in the traditionally single-family zoning districts. The City has now realized that many residents want more restrictions on uses within these residential zones. City Staff and applicable committees need more time to research possible solutions including potential amendments to the Zoning Code and Comprehensive Plan.
SECTION 2. RESTRICTIONS ON DEVELOPMENT
For the express purpose of protecting the planning process and the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, the City of Crosslake shall not accept or process any conditional use permit for any Recreational, Civic, Educational, Institutional, Commercial or Industrial Use within the Shoreland District or Rural Residential District for a period of one year from the effective date of this ordinance. During this time, City Staff is directed to conduct a study and eventual proposal to redraft the comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance. Although this is a one-year moratorium, it is the goal of this Council to have a new ordinance regarding all these issues as soon as possible and, if passed, the moratorium would be repealed at that time.
SECTION 3. EFFECTIVE DATE
This ordinance shall become effective immediately.
Passed by the City Council this 12th day of April, 2021.
