Board members disclosed communications they had regarding this item.
Mr. Lochrie, on behalf of the applicant, gave a presentation on this application as follows: The property’s land use category is 25 residential units per acre. The current zoning is for a mobile home park but there are no mobile homes on the property. The zoning district required needs to be compatible with the underlying land use. The applicant is requesting a rezoning to the City’s RMM-25 category which is the most restrictive zoning. The applicant requests rezoning in order to develop the vacant site. There will not be driveways going out to the streets; the project that will be proposed will be lined with landscaping, sidewalks and townhomes.
Mr. Fajardo of Planning and Zoning gave a staff presentation on this item as follows: The site is surrounded by the following residential districts – to the west RS-8; to the north and south, RMM-25 and B-2 zoning; to the east and existing mobile home park designation. Mr. Fajardo advised that staff wished to add the following condition for approval: the subject site should meet all existing state statutes in reference to mobile home parks.
Chair Curtis opened the public hearing. There being no members of the public wishing to speak on this item, Chair Curtis closed the public hearing and brought the discussion back to the Board.
