Morro Bay planning commission considers allowing taller buildings

Posted: Updated:

New developments in Morro Bay may stand taller than older buildings. 

The Morro Bay Planning Commission is considering a change to building codes that currently prohibits structures from being taller than 30 feet. 

In January, the city council eliminated a restriction on building height from the city's strategic plan. 

Residents fired back in opposition, arguing that taller buildings would obstruct their view of Morro Rock. 

Tuesday night, the planning commissioners decided to keep the policy the council voted it. 

It will allow some buildings to increase their height to a maximum of 37 feet, however the taller structures are only permitted in areas more than 20 feet away from residential districts and other specified zones. 

Buildings within 20 feet of neighborhoods must be no taller than 25 feet. 

The planning commission meets again on Tuesday, February 20 at 6 p.m. at the Veterans' Memorial Building.
