The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County R-1 (Rural Residential) to City R-1-A (Single Family Residential).
The project site is approximately ½ acre. The property is generally located on Joy Haven Road south of U.S. Hwy 441 between Mabel Lane and Mapache Lane, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County R-1 (Rural Residential). Currently, the property is developed as a single family residence and the proposed use would continue to be a single family residence. The surrounding zoning designations are City C-3 (Highway Commercial) to the north and County R-1 (Rural Residential) to the east, west and south.
The proposed zoning district of City R-1-A (Single Family Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of Estate Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family residential and commercial development to the north.
Approval of the proposed rezoning will provide consistent zoning and development standards for the area.
Redevelopment of the parcel shall require connection to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
The Planning Commission will hold their hearing on this matter on June 22, 2006.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to City R-1-A (Single Family Residential),,
2. Disapprove the proposed rezoning.
3. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
