RECOMMENDATION:

Staff Analysis & Recommendation: Staff and Planning Commission (6-0) recommend Approval.

 

The proposed land use amendment from “Neighborhood Commercial” to “Community Commercial” is requested in order to rezone the property to “C-2”. This is consistent with the North Central Community Plan’s objective to encourage comprehensive rezoning on the southern end of Blanco Road.  The “Community Commercial” will not allow for high intensity commercial uses and will bring retail uses to serve nearby residential areas and pedestrian friendly streetscapes.  The current zoning of “I-1” General Industrial is not permitted in the current “Neighborhood Commercial” land use. The proposed “Community Commercial” will also align with the land use directly to the north.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

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

2.                     Make an alternate recommendation.

3.                     Continue to a future date.
