The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to CIP (Commercial/Industrial Planned).
The project site is approximately .59 acres. The property is generally located at the northeast corner of West Main and North 15th Street, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential). Currently, the property is developed with an historic single family house and the proposed use is a tea house café. The surrounding zoning designations are all City 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 existing City future land use designation of City Low Density Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family houses, a church and undeveloped property.
Development of the parcel may require modifications to the 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 CIP (Commercial/Industrial Planned), 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.
