The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City P (Public) to RE-1 (Estate Density Residential).
The project site is approximately 8.72 acres. The property is generally located south of Highway 441 east of Sleepy Hollow Road, 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 undeveloped, and the proposed use is undetermined at this time. The surrounding zoning designations are County R-1 (Rural Residential) to the north and City P (Public) to the south, east and west.
The proposed zoning district of RE-1 (Estate Density Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of Estate Density Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are commercial/light industrial, undeveloped and Lake Harris.
City utilities are currently connected to the property.
By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to RE-1 (Estate Density Residential), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area; or
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There will be a positive fiscal impact to the City when the property is developed.
