OTHER PLANNING COMMISSION AMENDMENTS TO PROPOSED SEC. 9
Adopted as result of questions from the public:
Q: Who decides what can be used as design elements for building mass? How are mitigation points assigned for apparent building mass?
A by Parker: Staff decides. If the BOCC adopts that provision, it should be explained in the companion guide to building. We addressed the vague and confusing language in the current section 9.
Amendment: To make it clear how points are assigned, add to box 4 under 9.3 C: "See C(2) for explanation. Also, in 9.3 C(2) add “individually or in combination” after "used." This shows it is not just a matter of counting the design elements, there must also be the 10 percent shading. And if a combination of elements is used, they can together provide the shading percentage.
