A public hearing for a change to one of Mount Kisco's residential zones is being continued at tonight's village board of trustees meeting.
The hearing is for legislation that would alter the RT-6 zone by cutting the maximum allowed development coverage on site from 50 to 40 percent. It would also requiring two-family homes to be subject to the same architectural regulations for aesthetics as single-family structures, along with making sure that the architectural review board does not make recommendations for proposals that also need site plan approval until after the planning board acts.
Althought the RT-6 zone technically includes both single-family and two-family homes, the intent of the changes are to affect the later. Mayor Michael Cindrich told Patch on Feb. 12, when the hearing was firsted opened, that parking requirements for two-family structures lead to more impervious surface, which the development coverage change would place a limit on. The matter involves regulating green space and limiting discharge from sites.
The proposed legislation would impact new homes and those that receive changes, while existing homes without changes are grandfathered in.
