The Planning staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County RP (Residential/Professional) to City R-2 (Medium Density Residential).
The project site is approximately 4.3 acres. The property is generally located on the west side of C.R. 468, north of Veech Road and south of Lisa Dare Drive as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County RP (Residential/Professional). The current use of the property is undeveloped and the proposed uses are church related uses, church parking, child daycare and assisted living facility. The surrounding zoning designations are County RP (Residential/Professional), City R-2 (Medium Density Residential), City R-3 (High Density Residential) and City C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial). The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are County Urban, City Residential Moderate Density and Low Density. The existing Land Use designation for the subject property is City Low Density.
The proposed zoning district of City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing future land use designation of City Low Density.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are church, non-profit, retail and single family residential.
Development of the property requires City utilities.
By a vote of 6 to 0 on March 18, 2010, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for this area.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through the further development of this property.
