The Planning Commission and Planning staff recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County R-6 (Urban Residential) to City M-1 (Industrial).
The project site is approximately 23 acres. The property is generally situated north of SR 44, west of CR 468, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is R-6 (Urban Residential). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for commercial and industrial uses. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the north, County R-6 (Residential) to the west, City M-1 (Industrial) to the east, and County HM (Heavy Industrial) and LM (Light Industrial), and City M-1 (Industrial) to the south.
The proposed zoning district of City M-1 (Industrial) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City Industrial.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are office/industrial parks and undeveloped properties.
Development of the parcel shall require expansion of 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 M-1 (Industrial), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.
2. Such other action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
