AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   June 11, 2007

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Rezoning for Phyllis Bichard Hayes

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning Commission and Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed rezoning of the subject property from County A (Agriculture) to City RE-1 (Estate Residential).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 96 acres.  The property is generally situated east of the Turnpike, west of US 27, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). The property is currently undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for conservation purposes. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the east and to the west, and County PUD (Planned Unit Development) to the south and north.

 

The proposed zoning district of City RE-1 (Estate Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City Conservation. The Annexation Agreement restricts the use of the property to conservation purposes.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are undeveloped properties.

         

Development of the parcel shall require expansion of City utilities at the owner’s expense.

 

By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City RE-1 (Estate Residential), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.

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

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is no fiscal impact to the City.
