The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County A (Agriculture) to City R-1A (Single Family Residential).
The project site is approximately 4.18 acres. The property is generally located three miles southwest of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike on the west side of C.R. 48, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is partially undeveloped and has a dilapidated single-family residence. The proposed use of the site is single-family residences incorporated into the adjacent PUD for Benderson Development (Secret Promise). The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the east and City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the north and west.
The proposed zoning district of City R-1A (Single Family Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City Estate Density Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single-family residential and agricultural uses.
Development of the parcel shall require connection to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to City R-1A (Single Family Residential), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
