Staff ReportSTAFF REPORT Project Manager: Trey Fletcher, AICP — Senior Planner Date: Nov 16, 2004 Email: tletcher@cstx.gov Item: Public hearing, discussion, and possible action on a REZONING consisting of two (2) lots on 14.57 acres generally located in the 3800 Block of F &B Road from a combination of R -1, Single- family Residential, C -1, General Commercial, and A -O, Agricultural -Open to C -1, General Commercial. Applicant: James Jett, agent for Mary Feltner Futrell; and Patricia Jones Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends approval of the rezoning. Item Summary: The applicants are requesting both parcels to be rezoned C -1, General Commercial in compliance with the Comprehensive Plan. A substantial portion of one parcel is already zoned C -1 (1999). The purpose of the request is to bring the balance of this parcel and the adjacent parcel into compliance with the Plan. Both property owners are under contract to sell the property. The developer wishes to establish a mini - storage warehouse facility in two phases on both parcels. Neither parcel is platted at this time. Comprehensive Plan Considerations: The zoning change to C -1 is in compliance with the Comprehensive Plan. The Land Use Plan for this area was updated through the F &B Small Area Plan, adopted by Ordinance by the City Council in last year. Located near the southeast corner of FM 2818 and F &B Road, both parcels are shown for Regional Retail on the Land Use Plan. The Plan also shows Floodplains / Streams on the western parcel, but is not shown on the Greenways Master Plan. The Thoroughfare Plan shows F &B Road as a Major Collector. At the present time the road does not meet City of College Station road standards. The parcels are bounded by undeveloped property to the east and south. Property to the west is owned by TAMU and is primarily undeveloped. Near the road is a facility used by the TAMU Polo Team. Property located on the north of F &B Road is also owned by TAMU and is used by Parson's Mounted Calvary. A single - family residence exists on the western parcel that, according to the applicant would remain until such time the owner moves or is deceased. Item Background: R: V gTLTRTZLTRTRODIPZ20041P0010429. DOC Created on 11/1612004 4 :54 PM Annexed: The parcels were annexed in February 1970 and November 2004. Rezoned: The eastern parcel was rezoned to C -1, General Commercial with conditions in 1999. The application was originally for C -2, Commercial - Industrial in support of a warehouse /distribution facility. Platted: Neither parcel has been platted. Development activity in the vicinity: This property is adjacent to property that would be part of the Aggie Field of Honor (AFOH), if it becomes a reality. The proposal is for the Field of Honor to take access off of F &B Road. As such the development would be adjacent to the main entrance for the AFOH. Negotiations are ongoing with TAMU and an additional private property owner at this time to purchase the land for the AFOH. Related Advisory Board Recommendations: None Required. Commission Action Options: The Commission acts as a recommending body on the question of rezoning, which will be ultimately decided by City Council. The Commission options are: 1. Recommend approval of rezoning as submitted; 2. Recommend denial; 3. Table indefinitely; or, 4. Defer action to a specified date. Supporting Materials: 1. Location Map 2. Aerial 3. Application 4.

DOC Created on 11/1612004 4:54 PM INFRASTRUCTURE AND FACILITIES Water: There is an 18" water line stubbed out on the west side of FM 2818. The line would need to be extended by the developer.

Streets: F &B Road is designated as a Major Collector on Thoroughfare Plan. Prior to October 2003, the road was not classified. The condition of the road varies.

Off -site Easements: None are known to be necessary at this time. Drainage: An unnamed channel flows from north to south across the middle of the parcels. The channel has been altered to create a series of ponds.
