The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City M-1 (Industrial) to City R-2 (Medium Density Residential).
The project site is approximately .19 acre. The property is generally located on the corner of Bradford Avenue and North Chester Street, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City M-1 (Industrial). Currently, the property is the site of a burned single family residence, and the proposed use is new single family residence. The surrounding zoning designations are City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the north and City M-1 (Industrial) to the east, south and west.
The proposed zoning district of R-2 (Medium Density Residential) is compatible with properties to the north, south and west that have an existing City future land use designation of Low Density.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single and multi-family residential and industrial uses.
Development of the parcel shall require reconnection to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to R-2 (Medium Density Residential), 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.
