In the past, areas that had been annexed into the city along major corridors were lined with commercial zoning a given distance from the right-of-way regardless of property lines and lot depth. In this case, the first 200 feet of the property from the right-of-way is zoned C-2 (General Commercial) and the remainder is zoned R-6 (Single-Family Residential).
Originally constructed for residential use (as is the design and use of neighboring properties); the principle structure sets on the front portion of a lot that has been zoned for commercial uses for decades. Further, an accessory structure to the rear of the property, straddles the zoning line between C-2 and R-6 districts. Also, an auto related business legally operated from this location prior to April 30, 2014.
Planning Commission Action:
At its June 13, 2017 Planning Commission meeting, the motion for approval passed by a vote of 6-0, after consideration of the following facts:
- That the rezoning is consistent with the review criteria listed in Section 14-701-02 of the City Code;
- That a public hearing was held pursuant to a notice duly published according to law, at which time all interested parties were given the full opportunity to be heard;
- That rezoning the property from C-2 and R-6 to R-6 will allow for the applicant to reconvert a structure back to being a single-family home;
- That, at the Planning Commission hearing, no residents had questions or concerns about the rezoning application;
- That, at the hearing, no petition protesting this application was presented.
