The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to RP (Residential-Professional).
The project site is approximately .24 acres. The property is generally located on the northeast corner of South Street and Lone Oak Drive, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is R-2 (Medium Density Residential). Currently, the property is used as a professional office, and the proposed use is a Professional Office. The surrounding zoning designations are City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the north and south, City R-P (Residential Professional) to the west, and with City P (Public) to the east.
The proposed zoning district of RP (Residential-Professional) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing City future land use designation of Low Density Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family/residential professional, duplexes, and a public school.
Development of the parcel shall require connection to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to RP (Residential-Professional), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area; or
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
