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.

Permitted Zoning Districts: O-1.5, O-2, C-2, C-3, BP & L


Land Use Category:  “Parks Open Space”

Description of Land Use Category:

Parks Open Space includes large, or linear, unimproved land where conservation is promoted and development is not encouraged due to presence of topographic constraints or institutional uses on the site.

Staff analysis & Recommendation:  Staff and Planning Commission (8-0) recommend Approval.

2.                     Make an alternate recommendation.

3.                     Continue to a future date.
