The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-1 (Low Density Residential) and R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to RP (Residential Professional).
The project site is approximately .48 acres. The property is generally located on the northwest corner of South Lone Oak Drive and South Street, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-1 (Low Density Residential) and R-2 (Medium Density Residential). Currently, the property is single family and the proposed use is for professional offices. The surrounding zoning designations are to the east and north R-2 (Medium Density Residential), to the west R-1 (Low Density Residential), and to the south is R-3 (High Density Residential).
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 a church and single family residential uses.
Development of the parcel may require modifications to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 7 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.
