Yuma P&Z gives thumbs up to proposed code changes

By Mara Knaub | Yuma Sun

The Yuma Planning and Zoning Commission gave the thumbs up to proposed code changes that would expand the list of acceptable uses for corner markets, streamline the subdivision process and allow site-built homes in Manufactured Housing Districts.

After developers and property owners expressed interest in expanded commercial uses for corner markets in residential districts within the Infill Overlay District, the City Council directed staff to expand the permitted uses.

As a result, city staff proposed changing the zoning code to allow the same uses already permitted in the Limited Commercial (B-1) District with a conditional use permit, except for adult-oriented businesses.

The Limited Commercial (B-1) District allows a slew of uses, such as retail, repair shops, restaurants and child care services. Corner market uses already allowed by the code include cafés, grocery and produce sales, bakery, deli, hardware stores and personal services limited to salons, barbers, tailors and laundromats.
