KENAI - The Kenai City Council has backed off on a plan to regulate the look of storage sheds and the use of Conex boxes.
The council decided this week it wants to allow for more public comment before taking action on the proposed ordinance. It delayed action two weeks.
The proposed ordinance adds a requirement for "accessory structures over 120-square feet" to have a building permit. It also places restrictions on the large sheds or Conex-type structures if used in the city's central commercial and residential zones.
As proposed, Conex-type structures or storage sheds must have all wheeled assemblies removed, must be placed on a foundation, must be roofed and must be painted to match the primary building on the lot.
