The Longboat Key Planning and Zoning Board gave its planning staff direction Tuesday to establish height regulations for structures like church steeples to be no higher than 10 feet above the current zoning district height of 40 feet.
Applicants, though, can be granted additional height for structures such as steeples or church spires through a site plan approval process.
Direction from the planning board was needed Tuesday at the planning board’s regular meeting because the town’s current code doesn’t establish a height regulation for such structures.
