AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   September 13, 2010

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for rezoning for Robert V. Nicholson, from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to City C-2 (Community Commercial)

 

PROJECT:                 To allow for the expansion of an existing adjacent self storage facility

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to City C-2 (Community Commercial).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately .6 acres.  The property is generally located on the east side of Thomas Avenue and on the north side of Olivet Avenue as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential).  The current use of the property is undeveloped/vacant house and part of a multi-unit storage building. The proposed rezoning would allow the use of the property for an expansion of an existing adjacent self storage facility. The surrounding zoning designations are City C-2 (Community Commercial), City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) and City M-1 (Industrial).  The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are City Industrial and Low Density Residential. The existing Land Use designation for the subject property is City Low Density Residential.

 

The proposed zoning district of City C-2 (Community Commercial) is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed future land use designation of City Industrial.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are an undeveloped, self storage facility, industrial and single family residential.

 

Development of the property requires City utilities.

 

By a vote of 6 to 0 on July 22, 2010, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City C-2 (Community Commercial) thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for this area.

            2.         Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through the further development of this property.
