AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   February 11, 2008

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Interim Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance Rezoning Paquette Property (Paqco Shop Facility)

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City C-3 (Highway Commercial) and M-1 (Industrial) to CIP (Commercial Industrial Planned).

           

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 5.56 acres.  The property is generally located on the north side of West Main Street, west of Weber Avenue, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is C-3 (Highway Commercial) and M-1 (Industrial). Currently, the  eastern portion of the property is an industrial office and warehouse (Paqco), and the western portion is undeveloped. The surrounding zoning designations are to the north County A (Agriculture) & M-1 (Industrial); to the south C-3 (Highway Commercial); to the east M-1 (Industrial) and to the west C-3 (Highway Commercial).

                                           

The proposed zoning district of CIP (Commercial Industrial Planned) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the current City future land use designations of County Urban & Industrial.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are industrial warehouses, offices, and undeveloped property.

 

Development of the western parcel shall require connection to the City utilities at the owner’s expense.

 

By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.

 

Options:        

1.   Approve the proposed rezoning to 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.

13.    CONCURRENCY

         

The proposed land use change or approval would result in demands on public facilities which would exceed the current capacity of some public facilities, such as, but not limited to roads, sewage, water supply, drainage, solid waste, parks and recreation, schools and emergency medical facilities. However, no final development order (building permits) shall be granted for a proposed development until there is a finding that all public facilities and services required for the development have      sufficient capacity at or above the adopted level of service (LOS) to accommodate the impacts of the development, or that improvements necessary to bring facilities up to their adopted LOS will be in place concurrent with the impacts of the development.

 

          


A.       Utilities

 

                    1.        Projected Capacities

 

a.   The City’s utility planning efforts draw upon phasing, capacity and service requirements, based upon information provided by the applicant.  The City develops its plans consistent with sound engineering principles, prudent fiscal practices and due regard for regulatory compliance.

 

b.   The development will require construction of new distribution mains, since existing facilities in the service area are not adequate.  Should the developer wish to accelerate the construction of such facilities to provide service, the developer will bear the cost of design, permitting and construction.  Any such facilities must be constructed in a fashion consistent with the City’s master plans and to the City standards and specifications.

 

c.   The City is in the process of Consumptive Use Permit renewal.  The application provides for anticipated demands due to this and other potential development    

         

          B.      Commitment of Capacity

 

  There are no previous commitments of any existing or planned excess capacity.

 

C.      Ability to Provide Services

 

 1.        The City intends to provide water, wastewater and reclaimed water services within its service area for the foreseeable future.

 

 2.        The City updates its Ten-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) as part of our annual budgetary process.  Included within the CIP are water, wastewater, and reclaimed water improvements necessary to provide service to proposed development.

 

3.        The City has completed an impact fee study, based in part on the CIP in order to assure adequate and appropriate funding for required improvements. The combination of master planning and CIP planning has allowed the City to issue bonds to fund new potable water facilities and substantial reuse facilities, among other infrastructure improvements.
