I made a mistake about the Pam Brown Corrective Ordinance when I
wrote the reminder for tonight.
The history of my naming is is because the Supervisors are
changing the measurement of Accessory Dwellings from TOTAL Floor
Area to HABITABLE Floor Area, a huge difference in measurement.
Yesterday I said that you could build a huge garage and that is
not true. I made a mistake on that. In re-reviewing the new
document on the Township website (Pg 37, #11 a. (2) Accessory
Dwelling in a Freestanding Building), the building is limited to
1000 square feet of impervious surface coverage. If you want a
connected garage, you can add an additional 600 square feet.
You could add a full basement for another 1600 sq feet but the
upstairs I cannot figure out if you can go over the garage or
not. IF you can, that is another 1600 sq feet. So I guess the
total square footage of the house (accessory dwelling) is
limited to 4800 square feet. The maximum "habitable" square
footage is still 1800 feet so the rest would be for "storage".
That is the best I can reckon out of the changes.
In any event, I was partially wrong about the size that can be
built. If I have read this change properly, the Supervisors have
protected us from getting a house built that is 5075 total sq
ft, like Pam's, reducing the building by a full 275 feet. BUT,
it is very confusing.
