The Kenai City Council met last night, and one item before the council was an ordinance to change the city code to allow for the use conditional use permits to build accessory buildings if residents own two adjacent lots. This legislation was sponsored by council member Brian Gabriel.
Cm. Gabriel: “Currently, the way that Kenai City Code is written, if somebody owns two separated lots with a lot line, they’re not allowed to utilize that lot, only to the extent of putting a 120 square foot structure on there. What this does, it allows people with a primary main building and a vacant adjacent lot, to put up a 400 square foot structure without a permanent foundation, and it would be done though the conditional use permit, so there would be notification to neighbors.”
The council approved this unanimously.
