In Rawlins, conflicting language in parts of Title 19 has held some property owners to stricter building standards than what city officials intended.
In the historic overlay, much of which is contained in the numbered streets between 7th and 14th streets, setbacks of 15-feet are required. On the south side, where lots are smaller, residential mobile home zoning allows for 10-foot setbacks. But property owners there are still held to the higher standard of the historic district. A new ordinance is being considered to remedy the situation. Cali O’Hare has the story.
