10-3-2860: PURPOSE:
The purpose of this article shall include, but is not limited to, the following municipal objectives: Standards for hotel development which are sensitive to the quality of life and the character of adjacent residential zones and which distinguish between the nature of hotel related activities and those associated with general commercial development are necessary and desirable. Accordingly, appropriate procedures are hereby established whereby hotel proposals will be publicly evaluated and criteria established to assure the compatibility of hotel sites with their surrounding environment and the establishment of a limit on the number of new hotel rooms which can be developed in order to minimize potentially adverse traffic and other environmental impacts which may result from unrestricted hotel development. This article establishes zoning regulations applicable to hotel development which would require hotels to conform to the special standards and limitations of this article.
