Item No: 5C.
Meeting Date: July 23, 2012
From: Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director
Subject: Ordinance for rezoning for Lake County Educational Association from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to City RP (Residential Professional) - 1803 South Street
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).
The project site is approximately .38 of an acre. The property is generally located on the south side of South Street, east of Lucas Street and south of Hickory Drive 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 a vacant lot and the proposed use is for over flow parking. The surrounding zoning designations are City R-1 (Low Density Residential), City R-2 (Medium Density Residential), and C-3 (Highway Commercial). The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are City Low Density Residential and to the west High 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 Residential. 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. This is an area that will receive the new Transition Land Use classification with the adoption of the updated Comprehensive Plan by the end of the year. This request does not appear to create a detriment to the surrounding properties.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family residential and multi-family residential.
The property currently has City utilities available.
By a vote of 4 to 0 on June 21, 2012, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
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.
There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through the further development of this property.
