ORDINANCE NO. BL2009-432
An ordinance to amend Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, the Zoning Ordinance of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, to add the land use “Historic Bed and Breakfast Homestay” as a special exception (SE) and a use permitted by right (P) rather than a classification of the historic overlay districts, all of which is more particularly described herein (Proposal No. 2009Z-004TX-001).
WHEREAS, Ordinance No BL2005-701 amended the Metropolitan Code of Laws, Zoning Regulations, by adding Historic Bed and Breakfast Homestay as a historic overlay district;
WHEREAS, prior to the enactment of Ordinance No. BL2005-701 on August 19, 2005, a Historic Bed and Breakfast Homestay had been a special exception (SE) use or a use permitted by right (P) in certain zoning districts;
WHEREAS, under the prior special exception provisions, the Zoning Administrator notified the Metro Council of a pending Historic Bed and Breakfast Homestay application, and the Metro Council had 60 days from said notification to approve the specific location by Council resolution; and,
WHEREAS, under the prior special exception provisions, if the Metro Council failed to act within 60 days of the Zoning Administrator’s notification, the Board of Zoning Appeals could proceed with its consideration of the application; and,
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper to make Historic Bed and Breakfast Homestay a use permitted by right in certain districts, and a special exception use subject to Metro Council approval of the specific location and Board of Zoning Appeals review and consideration.

2. The application with site and architectural plans shall first be referred to and reviewed by the metropolitan historic zoning commission to determine the structure's eligibility for operation as a historic bed and breakfast homestay.

3. If the proposed structure is deemed eligible, exterior work proposed to be done will be subject to design review guidelines adopted by the metropolitan historic zoning commission for determining the architectural compatibility and historical significance of such work. If the metropolitan historic zoning commission determines, pursuant to Chapter 17.40, Article IX, that the proposed bed and breakfast structure qualifies for historic preservation or landmark designation, design review guidelines for neighborhood conservation districts shall apply. The metropolitan historic zoning commission's approval of work shall be granted in writing as a condition for issuance of a zoning permit.

Where there is more than one owner of the home, or where an estate, corporation, limited partnership or similar entity is the owner, a person with controlling interest, or possessing the largest number of outstanding shares owned by any single individual or corporation, shall reside permanently in the historic home. If two or more persons own equal shares that represent the largest ownership, at least one of the persons shall reside permanently in the historic home.
