The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to RP (Residential Professional).
The project site is approximately .76 acres. The property is generally located on the north side of Dixie Avenue, east of 12th Street, and west of Euclid, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential). Currently, the property is single family and office uses and the proposed use is for professional offices. The surrounding zoning designations are to the east and south R-2 (Medium Density Residential), to the north R-1 (Low Density Residential), and to the west is R-1 (Low Density Residential) and R-2 (Medium Density Residential) and a recent rezoning to RP (Residential Professional).
The proposed zoning district of City RP (Residential Professional) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing City future land use designation of City LD (Low Density Residential).
The existing land uses surrounding the property are offices and single family residential uses.
Development of the parcel may require modifications 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 RP (Residential/Professional), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
