Also, the property is within the Municipal Center planning district that calls for opportunities for residential and commercial activities in addition to municipal facilities. 2. Compatibility with the present zoning and conforming uses of nearby property and with the character of the neighborhood: Typically General Commercial uses are discouraged against single-family type uses such as a manufactured home park. General Commercial is consistent with adjacent zoning and existing uses along Texas Avenue. The proposed development of the property as General Commercial would also be compatible with the municipal uses along Krenek Tap. 3. Suitability of the property affected by the amendment for uses permitted by the district that would be made applicable by the proposed amendment: The General Commercial zoning would allow a continued commercial presence along Texas Avenue SouthHowdy20!4 and allow services to be more accessible to the surrounding area. 4. Suitability of the property affected by the amendment for uses permitted by the district applicable to the property at the time of the proposed amendment: The current GS General Suburban designation on this property would allow the continued use as a single-family home. This however, is not suitable for the property due to the intention of the Municipal Center District Planning Corridor calling for a municipal center and supporting commercial and residential uses that would be urban in character. 5. Marketability of the property affected by the amendment for uses permitted by the district applicable to the property at the time of the proposed amendment: The property is claimed under ownership with the adjacent larger tract that is already designated as GC General Commercial. The current land use would limit the property owner's ability to fully develop the property. 6. Availability of water, wastewater, stormwater, and transportation facilities generally suitable and adequate for the proposed use: There is an existing 12"water and 12" wastewater line available to serve the property. Existing infrastructure with proposed modifications appear to be adequate for the proposed use. Drainage and any other infrastructure required with the site development shall be designed and constructed in accordance with the BCS Unified Design Guidelines. The Thoroughfare Plan identifies Krenek Tap Road as an existing 2-lane Minor Collector. The amount of traffic produced by this development is minimal and should not have a detrimental impact on surrounding roadways. STAFF RECOMMENDATION Staff recommends approval of the rezoning request. SUPPORTING MATERIALS 1. Application 2. Rezoning map Planning&Zoning Commission Page 5 of 5 April 16, 2015 Good Evening Mark Bombek, Staff Planner This evening's request is to rezone approximately.75 acres of land generally located at the northeast corner of Texas Avenue South and Krenek Tap Road. The request is to rezone the property from GS General Suburban to GC General Commercial. As can be seen on your screen there is some hatch work over the area indicating the Krenek Tap Overlay.This overlay was created in 2004 and was later identified as the Municipal Center planning district through the Comprehensive Plan update in 2009.The overlay calls for opportunities to further develop commercial and residential uses in addition to the municipal facilities planned for the area. The subject property is designated as Urban on the Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use and Character Map, which is intended for more intense levels of development focused on residential uses. General Commercial and Office uses, Business Parks, and Vertical Mixed Use are also uses envisioned for redevelopment and growth areas.While this is not a redevelopment area, the request for General Commercial is consistent with the future land use designation being that this property is a portion of a larger tract that is already zoned General Commercial that has frontage along Texas Avenue-a six-lane major arterial. The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the rezoning request at their April 16th meeting.Since the meeting there have also been three inquiry calls regarding the request. I am available for questions if there are any and the applicant is as well. I Good evening, Mark Bombek, Staff Planner.
