The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County R-6 (Urban Residential District) to City RP (Residential Professional)
The project site is approximately .22 acres. The property is generally located on the west side of Vista Avenue, north of U.S. Highway 441 and south of Shademoor Drive as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County R-6 (Urban Residential District). Currently, the property is a single family residential home. The surrounding zoning designations are County R-6 (Urban Residential District) to the north and east, City C-3 (Highway Commercial) to the south and County R-6 (Urban Residential District) and City C-3 (Highway Commercial) to the west.
The proposed zoning district of City RP (Residential Professional) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing future land use designations of LC Regional Commercial.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family residential, multi-family residential, undeveloped and commercial/office.
Connection to City utilities will be at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 5 to 0 on December 11, 2008, the Planning Commission voted to recommend 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.
