Zoning Change Update

Zoning Change Meeting

On Monday, May 20th, together, the Lake Terrace Property Owners Association and the Lake Oaks Civic Association held a Zoning Change Meeting to discuss a potential zoning change within our communities. We were pleased to see over 50 property owners from the 4 lakefront neighborhoods in attendance, showing a strong interest in this important issue. Below is the PowerPoint from the meeting that explains the zoning change. We will also be linking read-only documents for your review and input. We encourage all property owners to stay informed and voice any concerns or feedback you may have regarding this potential zoning change. Stay tuned for more updates and information on this important matter. Thank you for your continued support and involvement in our community.

Zoning Change Description

We are asking for a zoning change for Lake Terrace and Lake Oaks subdivisions from S-RS, Suburban Single Family Residential to S-LRS2, Lake Vista and Lakeshore Single Family Residential. The descriptions below come directly from the City Zoning Ordinance (CZO) section 13.

o   13.1.A PURPOSE OF THE S-RS SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT The S-RS Single-Family Residential District is intended for single-family residential neighborhoods developed after World War II where a more uniform lotting pattern is evident with larger, generally uniform setbacks. Limited non-residential uses such as places of worship that are compatible with surrounding residential neighborhoods may be allowed. 

O   13.1.F PURPOSE OF THE S-LRS2 LAKE VISTA AND LAKE SHORE SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT The S-LRS2 Lake Vista and Lake Shore Single-Family Residential District is intended to provide for and encourage low-density single-family residential development of a relatively spacious character consistent with the unique development pattern of the Lake Vista and Lake Shore areas together with places of worship, recreational facilities, and accessory uses as may be necessary or typical for residential surroundings. 

       The requested change does NOT AFFECT NEIGHBORHOOD RESTRICTIONS! Every neighborhood will still be required to follow the Restrictions put in place for each by the Orleans Levee Board when our neighborhoods were built. In cases where the City Zoning Ordinance

(CZO) and the Restrictions disagree, the more restrictive rule will apply.
