Overlay and Special District Information: 

"AHOD"

All surrounding properties carry the "AHOD" Airport Hazard Overlay District, due to their proximity to an airport or approach path.  The "AHOD" does not restrict permitted uses, but can require additional review of construction plans by both the Development Services Department and the Federal Aviation Administration.

 

“CD”

The conditional use zoning procedure is designed to provide for a land use that is not permitted by the established zoning district, but due to individual site considerations or unique development requirements would be compatible with adjacent land uses under given conditions.

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff Analysis and Recommendation: Staff and Zoning Commission (10-0) recommend Approval, pending Plan Amendment.

 

Criteria for Review:  According to Section 35-421, zoning amendments shall be based on the approval criteria below.

 

1.  Consistency: 

The property is located within the San Antonio International Airport Vicinity Land Use Plan, and is currently designated as “High Density Residential” in the future land use component of the plan.  The requested “C-2” base zoning district is not consistent with the future land use designation.  The applicant has requested a plan amendment to “Community Commercial”.  Staff recommends approval.  Planning Commission will consider this request on February 13, 2019.

 

2.  Adverse Impacts on Neighboring Lands: 

Staff finds no evidence of likely adverse impacts on neighboring lands in relation to this zoning change request. The proposed development is within a corridor of commercial uses designated as “C-2” with no other car sales lots within the immediate area.

 

3.  Suitability as Presently Zoned: 

The current “C-2” Commercial District is an appropriate zoning for the property and surrounding area.

 

4.  Health, Safety and Welfare: 

Staff has not found indication of likely adverse effects on the public health, safety, or welfare.

 

5.  Public Policy: 

The rezoning request does not appear to conflict with the land use goals and strategies of the San Antonio International Airport Vicinity Land Use Plan.

 

San Antonio International Airport Vicinity Land Use Plan Goals:

 

GOAL I; Objective 1.2: Discourage developments of incompatible uses in the airport environs and noise exposure contours.

GOAL II; Objective 2.1: Upgrade and enhance airfront commercial and business park property that is declined, is currently vacant, or is underutilized.

GOAL II; Objective 2.3: Redevelop major commercial corridors to serve the needs of the airport neighborhoods and patrons.

GOAL IV; Objective 4.4: Support commercial redevelopment through comprehensive rezoning and incentive zoning.

 

 

6.  Size of Tract: 

The subject property is .4829 acres, which would adequately support a variety of commercial uses.

 

7.  Other Factors: 

None.
