Review information provided by Town Zoning Administrator concerning the building permit issued to Todd

is no dwelling on the property. There are two options here to meet the Zoning Ordinance requirements: 1)

construct a dwelling on the property; 2) add a dwelling within the proposed structure. In either instance the

following County requirements must be met: 1) A sanitary system is required. This system can be a) chemical

toilet; b) composting toilet; c) out house – open pit or sealed. 2) The Town does not have the authority to deny a

system approved by the County. 3) A fire number is issued when the sanitary system is approved. 4) A dwelling

does not require running water, electricity, heat, or interior finish. 5) Minimum dwelling size per the Zoning

Ordinance is 676 square feet.

Petition to Clarify Garfield Zoning Ordinance was presented to the Plan Commission (12 signatures from the

Melissa Jones Development located at 179th Street and 90th Avenue, Garfield)
