The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-3 (High Density Residential) to RP (Residential Professional).
The project site is approximately .39 acres. The property is generally located north of East Main Street, east of East Street, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-3 (High Density Residential). Currently, the property is a single family house and the proposed use is single family and office uses. The surrounding zoning designations are all R-3 (High Density Residential) to the north and C-3 (Highway Commercial) to the south, east and west.
The proposed zoning district of City RP (Residential Professional) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing City future land use designation of City Estate Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are a church and single family residential transitioning to professional office uses.
Development of the parcel may require modifications to 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 RP (Residential/Professional), 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.
