RECOMMENDATION:

Staff Analysis and Recommendation: Staff and Zoning Commission (10-0) recommend Approval.

 

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

 

1.  Consistency: 

The subject property is located within the North Sector Plan and is currently designated as “General Urban Tier” in the future land use component of the plan. The requested “R-5” base zoning district is consistent with the future land use designation.

 

2.  Adverse Impacts on Neighboring Lands: 

Staff has not found evidence of likely adverse impacts on neighboring lands in relation to this zoning change request. The proposed use is consistent with the established development pattern of the surrounding area.

 

3.  Suitability as Presently Zoned: 

The existing “R-5” Single-Family Residential base zoning is an appropriate zoning district is appropriate for the surrounding area. The proposed request maintains the base “R-5” district while the “CD” allows consideration of a professional office.

 

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 proposed rezoning does not appear to conflict with any existing goals, principles or objectives of the North Sector Plan Goals:

 

Goal: High density housing is developed near post-secondary education facilities, principal and arterial transportation routes, and major employment areas.

 

HOU-2.3 Utilize High Density Residential as a buffer between principal and arterial roadways / non-residential (i.e. office, retail, commercial uses) and lower density residential housing.

 

Goal: Strong and stable medical and research industries that promote economic stability in the North Sector.

 

ED-2.3: Support, stimulate, and foster increased activity of existing businesses within the North Sector including but not limited to finance, insurance, real estate, medical, cyber security, research and development.

 

6.  Size of Tract: 

The subject property is 1.008 acres, which would adequately support residential use with an office.

 

7.  Other Factors: 

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.

 

The subject property is located within the Camp Bullis Awareness Zone/Military Influence Area.  In accordance with the signed Memorandum of Understanding, JBSA was notified of the proposed request.
