AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   November 13, 2006

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance approving a Rezoning for Hale Limited Partnership Agreement-

                                    (Drive-Time)

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County R-6 (Urban Residential) to C-3 (Highway Commercial).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 3.18 acres.  The property is generally located north of U.S. 441 and west of C.R. 473, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County R-6 (Urban Residential). Currently, the property is a vacant building and undeveloped and the proposed use would be Auto Sales. The surrounding zoning designations are to the east and west C-3 (Highway Commercial), to the north County R-6 (Urban Residential), and to the south County R-1 (Rural Residential).

                                                   

The proposed zoning district of City C-3 (Highway Commercial) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing City future land use designation of City General Commercial.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family residential and retail 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.

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City C-3 (Highway Commercial), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.

2.         Disapprove the proposed rezoning.

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

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is no fiscal impact to the City.
