AN ORDINANCE TO CLARIFY THE PERMITTED USES OF SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY IN THE VILLAGE
Introduced by: Mr. Tettenhorst
WHEREAS, for a significant portion of its history, and currently, the Village of Riverlea has been subject to land use regulations that restrict the use of property within the Village to single family residential purposes, and substantially all the structures in the Village consist of buildings that are devoted to single family residential uses;
WHEREAS, the use of homes by individuals over the years have changed such that more individuals pursue their livelihood from their homes, and the Council of the Village of Riverlea desires to provide for such activities while preserving the residential character of the Village, and thereby to promote the common welfare of the residents of the Village; and
WHEREAS, Council of the Village has determined that clarifying the ordinances of the Village regarding the permitted use of properties in the Village as single family residences, but permitting certain accessory uses and home occupations, will benefit residents of the Village
Be It Ordained by the Council of the Village of Riverlea, State of Ohio:
Section l. Confirmation of Single Family Residential Zoning of Village Properties; Accessory Uses and Home Occupations. . That Riverlea Code Section 151.020 is hereby amended by deleting the current version thereof and replacing it in its entirety with the following:
"§151.020 Single Family Dwelling Residence Limitation; Accessory Uses and Home Occupation Uses.
Single Family Residence Permitted. No person shall construct, occupy or use any land, lot, premises, building or structure in the Village for any purpose or use other than as a single family dwelling, as an Accessory Use to a single family dwelling, or as a permitted Home Occupation, as such terms are defined in this Section, and otherwise subject to the other provisions of this Chapter. No more than one single-family dwelling, or part thereof, shall be located on any lot within the Village. No single-family dwelling shall be occupied by more than one family or household. No land, lot, premises, building or structure in the Village shall be constructed, occupied or used for any trade, industry or other commercial use other than a Home Occupation. As used in this Section: (1) "lot" shall have the meaning ascribed to that term in Section 151.022 of this Title; (2) "family" means one or more persons occupying a single dwelling unit, provided that unless all members are related by blood or marriage, no such family shall contain over five persons; and (3) "single family dwelling" means a detached residential dwelling unit other than a mobile home designed for and occupied by one family or household only.
Certain Accessory Uses Permitted. "Accessory Use" means a use of any land, lot, premises, building or structure that is subordinate to the principal use of any land, lot, premises, building or structure as a single family residence, and that serves a purpose customarily incidental to the principal use, which principal use is located on the same lot, or on an adjacent lot that is under common ownership with the lot, on which the Accessory Use occurs.
Existing Nonconforminq Uses; Continuation. The lawful, nonconforming use of any land, lot, premises, building or structure existing at the time of the adoption of this Section may be continued, although such use, building, structure or land does not conform with the provisions of this Title; except that, unless required by law, no existing building, structure or land devoted to a use not permitted by this Title or used in a manner not conforming to the other provisions of this Title, shall be enlarged, extended, expanded, subdivided, changed or structurally altered, unless the use thereof is changed to a use permitted by this Title and conforming to all the other provisions hereof.
Permitted Home Occupations. "Home Occupation" means an occupation, profession, activity, or use that is clearly an incidental, secondary or customary use of a residential dwelling unit, which does not alter the exterior character or appearance of the dwelling or any other building or structure on the lot, which is carried on solely within the principal dwelling unit, and with respect to which the owner or occupant of the lot has delivered written notice thereof to the Mayor or his or her designee as set forth herein. No person shall construct, occupy or use any land, lot, premises, building or structure in the Village for a Home Occupation except in conformity with the provisions of this Section.
No person other than members of the family residing on the premises shall be engaged in such Home Occupation, except that in connection with the practice of a profession which can be practiced only with the assistance of supportive personnel, one (1) person not residing in such dwelling unit may be so employed;
Not more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the floor area of the dwelling unit shall be used in the conduct of the Home Occupation;
There shall be no change in the outside appearance of the building or premises, or other visible evidence of the conduct of such Home Occupation;
No Home Occupation shall be conducted in any yard or accessory building, and no storage of equipment or materials used in a Home Occupation shall be outside the principal residence;
No traffic shall be generated by the Home Occupation in greater volumes than would normally be expected in a residential neighborhood, and no more than one vehicle shall be used in connection with a Home Occupation;
No equipment or process shall be used in the Home Occupation which creates noise, vibration, glare, fumes, odors or electrical interference detectable to the normal senses off the lot. In the case of electrical interference, no equipment or process shall be used which creates visual or audible interference in any radio or television receivers off the premises, or causes fluctuations in line voltage off the premises; and
Any person who conducts an occupation, profession, activity, or use of property in the Village in reliance on the provisions of this Section that permit the conduct of Home Occupations, shall notify the Mayor or his or her designee in writing that such activity has or will occur, such notice to be delivered not later than seven days after the first date on which such occupation, profession, activity or use of property first occurs, and shall describe the nature of the activity, the persons conducting such activity and the times during which such activity may be conducted."

Provided, however, that any building heretofore erected or now in use within the village for residence of more than one family shall be permitted to continue in such use. No buildings or other structures or premises shall be erected, altered or used in the village for trade, industry or other purposes than for dwelling (with necessary and proper out-buildings for dwelling houses)."
