The Planning Commission and Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County A (Agriculture) to City RE-1 (Estate Residential).
The project site is approximately 71 acres. The property is generally situated east of US 27 and south of Dewey Robbins Road, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for residential development. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the east, south, and west, County A (Agriculture), and County RP (Residential Professional) to the 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 Estate Residential. However, the Annexation Agreement requires rezoning to a Planned Development District by the developer prior to development.
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.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to City RE-1 (Estate Residential), 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.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
