AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   July 23, 2007

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Rezoning for Paul B. Harsh II - (Tri-Vista Properties, LLC)

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City C-3 (Highway Commercial) to CIP (Commercial/Industrial Planned).

           

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 1.5 acre.  The property is generally located south of South Street and west of Venture Avenue, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City C-3 (Highway Commercial). Currently, the property has a single family residence and undeveloped property, and the proposed use is light industrial. The surrounding zoning designations are to the north, south and east City C-3 (Highway Commercial), and to the west R-2 (Medium Density Residential).

                                                   

The proposed zoning district of City CIP (Commercial/Industrial Planned) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City General Commercial.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are undeveloped and light industrial uses.

         

Development of the parcel may require connection to the 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 CIP (Commercial/Industrial Planned), 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.
