AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   July 11, 2011

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for rezoning for Kenneth Sampong from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to City RP (Residential Professional) - 1111 W. Dixie Avenue

 

PROJECT:                 Medical Office

 

 

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 RP (Residential Professional).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately .60 of an acre.  The property is generally located on the southeast corner of W. Dixie Avenue and McKenzie Street 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 an existing, legally non-conforming medical office with adjacent parking. The surrounding zoning designations are City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) and City RP (Residential/Professional).  The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are City Low Density Residential.  The existing Land Use designation for the subject property is City Low Density Residential.

 

The proposed zoning district of City RP (Residential Professional) is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with a future land use designation of City Low Density. This is an area of transition from older residential uses to professional uses and the proposed zoning would provide for transition to the adjacent residential uses to the north, east, south and west.  This request does not appear to create a detriment to the surrounding properties.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are medical offices, single family residential and undeveloped.

 

The property currently has City utilities.

 

By a vote of 6 to 0 on June 16, 2011, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.

 

 

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City RP (Residential Professional) 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.
