The Flagstaff City Council gave final approval to a series of zoning code amendments Tuesday evening, including defining differences in accessory dwelling units and where to allow places of worship.

The most contentious change that was posed to the Planning and Zoning Commission was the proposal to modify building placement on existing lots, specifically to reduce the size of a building’s setback for a non-residential use adjacent to a residential use in a commercial zone.

Ultimately, the Planning and Zoning Commission did not recommend the council change the existing setback requirement of 15 feet, but the council still received eight emails from citizens in zones that would be affected, including the Southside, Sunnyside and the homes north of downtown Flagstaff.
