Comprehensive Land Use Categories

Land Use Category:  “Neighborhood Commercial”

Description of Land Use Category:

                     Neighborhood Commercial provides small areas for offices, professional services, service and shopfront retail uses that can be served by pedestrian access.

                     Neighborhood Commercial should have a service area radius of approximately a half-mile, and should serve a population of approximately 2,000 to 5,000 people.

                     It permits a limited group of commercial uses that serve the neighborhood while protecting the abutting residential areas.

                     Neighborhood Commercial should be located at the intersection of a collector and arterial street or where an existing commercial area has been established.

Permitted Zoning Districts: NC, C-1

 

Comprehensive Land Use Categories

Land Use Category: “Mixed Use”

Description of Land Use Category:

                     Mixed Use provides for a concentrated blend of residential, retail, service, office, entertainment, leisure, and other related uses at increased densities to create a pedestrian-oriented environment where people can enjoy a wide range of fulfilling experiences in one place.

                     Nodal development is preferred around a transit stop, where the density would decrease towards the edge of the node.

                     Mixed Use should be located at the intersection of a collector and arterial street, two arterial streets, or where an existing commercial area has been established.

                     Mixed Use incorporates high quality architecture and urban design features such as attractive streetscapes, parks/plazas, and outdoor cafes.

Permitted Zoning Districts: MXD, TOD, NC, C-1, C-2, O-1, O-2, RM-4, RM-5, RM-6, MF-25, MF-33, MF-40, MF-50

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff Analysis & Recommendation: Staff and Planning Commission (7-0) recommend Approval. 

 

The proposed land use amendment from “Neighborhood Commercial” to “Mixed Use” is requested in order to rezone the property to "IDZ-3 AHOD" High Intensity Infill Development Zone Airport Hazard Overlay District with uses permitted for multi-family not to exceed 75 total units and Motor Vehicle Sales (Full Service).  This is consistent with the North Central Community Plan’s objective to market San Pedro Avenue as the place to live, work, shop and play with their central location and convenient access to all San Antonio.  The future land use classification for the property is “Neighborhood Commercial”, which is compatible with the existing uses along San Pedro Avenue. The proposed Plan Amendment to “Mixed Use” is a compatible transition for the “C-3” base zoning to the north, south and east and the “MF-33” base zoning to the west. Also, the “Mixed Use” future land use classification will add diverse housing options on San Pedro Aveune, while also promoting infill development.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1.                     Recommend denial.

2.                     Make an alternate recommendation.

3.                     Continue to a future date.
