P&Z recommends clean-up of zoning ordinance, rejects proposed changes

The Breckenridge Planning and Zoning recommended to reject the change to the city ordinance regarding whether in-home daycare and schooling should be permitted in R-1 dwelling districts Monday, June 3. But in turn, they recommended cleaning up the language of the ordinance to make it clearer, grandfathered in certain daycares that are already in R-1 districts, and voted to allow home-schooling across all zones.

Currently, the ordinance is written in such a way that prohibits both in-home schooling and daycares in R-1 dwellings. But several people, including a couple of P&Z board meetings, stated the language was confusing and it was hard to tell whether these types of occupations were even prohibited.

To read the full breakdown of the hearing, please see the June 12 edition of the Breckenridge American.
