Today we had G 98-15 disapproved. The clear reasoning was that the term R3 occupancies would include lodging houses, dormitories, and other multi family uses. The committee specifically told us to modify to only apply to 1 and 2 family dwellings. Another comment was that 3,000 sf was way to small as IRC allows unlimited garages (it was here I begun to understand that we are, for this committees thinking) talking about 4 story and above one and two family houses.
Next came G-103-15. I made a floor modification changing r3 occupancies to one and two family occupancies (changed by the committee to one and two family dwellings) proposal PASSED!
More later. Have a good weekend.
