LOCATION: Mixed Use Centers serve Suburban, General Urban, and Rural Tiers outside of the Urban Core Tier.

The higher intensity of the residential and commercial uses should be located on, or at the intersection of, arterials and collectors. Streets should accommodate high volumes of commercial traffic for cars while accommodating safe and inviting access for pedestrians and bicycles within and around the center. High capacity transit should be encouraged.

Proximity to Regional Center/Premium Transit Corridor

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff Analysis & Recommendation: Staff recommends Approval.

 

The proposed land use amendment from “Mixed Use Center” to “Civic Center” is requested in order to rezone the property to “ED” Entertainment District. This is consistent with the North Sector Plan’s goal to develop compatible economic development along major transportation routes and existing activity centers that do not interfere with the mission of Camp Bullis.

Sector Plan Criteria for review:

                     The recommended land use pattern identified in the North Sector Land Use Plan inadequately provides appropriate optional sites for the land use change proposed in the amendment.

                     The amendment must constitute an overall improvement to the Sector Plan and will not solely benefit a particular landowner or owners at a particular point in time.

                     The amendment must uphold the vision for the future of the North Sector Plan

 

The amendment will not adversely impact a portion of, or the entire Planning Area by;

                     Significantly altering acceptable existing land use patterns, especially in established neighborhoods.

                     Affecting the existing character (i.e. visual, physical, and functional) of the immediate area.

                     Creating activities that are not compatible with adjacent neighboring uses, and, particularly, the mission of Camp Bullis.

                     Significantly alter recreational amenities such as open space, parks, and trails.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1.                     Recommend Denial of the proposed amendment to the North Sector Plan, as presented above.

2.                     Make an alternate recommendation.

3.                     Continue to a future date.
