Community Commercial provides for offices, professional services, and retail uses of moderate intensity and impact. Examples of uses include a grocery store, a medical office, music store, shoe store, nursery, or mailing services store. Community Commercial should be located along arterials, preferably at intersections with other arterials or collectors and can serve as an appropriate buffer between low, medium, and high-density residential uses, or between an arterial and low density residential.

Land Use Category:  “Business Park”

Description of Land Use Category:

A Business Park provides employment or civic uses interspersed with open space areas and pedestrian walkways in campus settings. This land use classification is designed for business uses, which carry on their operation in enclosed facilities in such a manner that no negative impact is created outside of the boundaries of the business park. Business parks should be separated from residential areas with landscaping areas and should feature lighting and signage control. Business park uses include customer service centers, corporate offices, light manufacturing, and warehouse uses. Accessory uses may include on-site cafeterias, daycare facilities, incidental retail, and other uses for the convenience and service of occupants of the business park.

Examples include City pocket, regional, or linear parks, as well as private parks associated with subdivisions and neighborhood associations.

Permitted Zoning Districts: NA

Land Use Category:  “Industrial”

Description of Land Use Category:

General Industrial includes heavy manufacturing, processing and fabricating businesses. General industrial uses shall be concentrated at arterials, expressways, and railroad lines. This use is not compatible with residential uses and should be separated from residential uses by an intermediate land use or a significant buffer. Any outside storage must be under a roof and screened from public view.

Permitted Zoning Districts: C-3, O-1.5, O-2, L, I-1, I-2, MI-1 & MI-2

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff analysis & Recommendation:  Staff recommends Denial, with an Alternate Recommendation.

 

The applicant seeks a Plan Amendment from “Community Commercial”, “Business Park”, and “Parks Open Space” to “Industrial” to rezone and develop a Warehouse with a Distribution Center.  The proposed location along Loop 410 is appropriate for a Warehouse Distribution Center. The requested “Industrial” land use is more intense than is required to accomplish the desired zoning. Staff recommends Denial of the proposed “Industrial” land use with an Alternate Recommendation of “Business Park.”  The “Business Park” land use category has a consistent zoning district of “L” Light Industrial that the applicant can utilize for the rezoning of the property to a Warehouse Distribution Center.

 

The applicant has been informed of this alternative and has indicated that they are agreeable to the “Business Park” land use.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1.                     Recommend Approval of the proposed amendment to the Eastern Triangle Community Plan, as presented above.

2.                     Make an alternate recommendation.

3.                     Continue to a future date.
