  18. 18. Dennis Hotel Resort District Zoning Proposal And modifications to hotel uses located in the General Commercial II Zoning District
  19. 19. DENNISPORT HOTEL RESORT AREA <ul><li>Within the Dennisport Hotel Resort Area, the district would include the properties immediately adjacent to the water and Chase Avenue. </li></ul><ul><li>A few properties along Old Wharf Road would also be included as they are also operating motels. </li></ul><ul><li>The area contains about 41 acres of land. </li></ul>
  20. 20. DENNISPORT HOTEL RESORT AREA <ul><li>The Dennisport Study area is comprised of land parcels that are significantly below current zoning standards. </li></ul><ul><li>Zoning limitations make it difficult for these parcels to be redeveloped as the costs for reconstruction and septic upgrades exceed potential hotel revenues. </li></ul><ul><li>To meet these expenses, property owners have been converting hotel units to timeshare properties. </li></ul>
  21. 21. DENNISPORT HOTEL RESORT AREA <ul><ul><ul><li>Allow increase in height from 35’ maximum to 50’ maximum for flat roofs and 58’ maximum for roofs with a pitch of between 6:12 and 12:12 for hotel projects. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Allow increase in height to 4 ½ stories with ground level being parking being allowed under a portion of the hotel and the remaining ground floor area being used for guest services and rooms. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Allow for structured parking or parking under the hotel structure without requiring increases in open area on the site as presently required. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Require 15 foot setbacks </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Establishes a “bulk plane” setback which will either push buildings back from identified public spaces or establish a 1:1 sloped line away from these public spaces. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  22. 22. DENNISPORT HOTEL RESORT AREA
  23. 23. WEST DENNIS HOTEL RESORT AREA <ul><li>The West Dennis area comprises the Lighthouse Inn and several parcels surrounding it. </li></ul><ul><li>These parcels are used for a variety of commercial and seasonal uses and in most cases represent uses that are clearly inconsistent with the residential zoning district within which they are located. </li></ul><ul><li>The area contains about 199 acres, however the single largest parcel within this district is the West Dennis Beach at 136 acres. </li></ul><ul><li>The West Dennis Beach is included in this district to clear up some issues related to commercial activities requested to be operated on the beach that were inconsistent with the residential zoning. </li></ul>
  24. 24. WEST DENNIS HOTEL RESORT AREA <ul><li>For Hotels, allow increase in height from 35’ maximum to 42’ maximum; measure building height from base flood elevation; require roofs with a pitch of between 6:12 and 12:12; allow increase in height to 2 2/3 stories; allow or require structured parking without requiring increases in open area on the site; require 25 foot setbacks. </li></ul>
  25. 25. GENERAL COMMERCIAL II HOTEL RESORT CHANGES <ul><li>The General Commercial II zoning district comprises Route 28 between the Dennisport and West Dennis Village Centers and Upper County Road. </li></ul><ul><li>The hotels in this area are quite similar to those found along Chase Avenue. </li></ul><ul><li>The proposal calls for allowing an increase in height from 35’ maximum to 42’ maximum; require roofs with a pitch of between 6:12 and 12:12; allow increase in height to 2 2/3 stories; allow or require structured parking without requiring increases in open area on the site; require 25 foot setbacks. </li></ul>
