Recommendation• Planning staff recommends approving the request as modified by the Commission; staff recommends denying the request as originally submitted.• On November 19, 2012, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the zone change – as proposed to be modified - by an unanimous 6-0 vote.
35. History and BackgroundGeneral Information• Ranch & Estate (R&E) ;• Residential dwellings east, storage yards north, and pastures.• North Bryant Boulevard Frontage Road is an “arterial street.”• Lake Drive is a “collector street.”• Annexed in 1949, property relatively unchanged since the 1970‟s.• In the 1980‟s, Special Permits applied for in the area included SP 167, SP176 (withdrawn), and SP 251; mostly for mobile home locations.
36. History and Background• Applicable Regulations include: Section 504. Type 3 General Outdoor Storage “…shall be allowed in unlimited quantity” Section 303. Residential Intent Statements “A. The Ranch and Estate District is intended to provide opportunities for development of low density, detached single-family residences on lots of at least one acre in a suburban or rural setting…(it ) is also intended to serve as a holding zone for vacant land areas annexed to the City.”
37. History and BackgroundSection 304. Commercial District Intent Statements“The Heavy Commercial District is intended to provideopportunities for development of wholesale trade, retailsales, warehousing, development, repair and serviceestablishments, heavy and bulk equipment supply dealeror other such establishments that typically arecharacterized by outside storage of materials ormerchandise.”
38. History and Background Section 316. Industrial Use Categories “A.3. Examples include mortuary and crematory services, not on same site as funeral home…”• Related Comprehensive Plan Excerpts: Vision Plan. Rural. Intent and Goal 1. “Rural areas…will…come under the largest pressure to develop more intensively…(e)nsure suitability of development in Rural areas, promoting overall compatibility and avoiding overload of rural structures, especially the street.”
39. History and Background“Establish transition areas to better “scale-down” intensityof use from commercial centers to neighborhoods.”“Require a buffer separating commercial, industrial, oragriculture zoned land from neighborhoods.”“Rezone or remove any CG/CH zoning from adjacent toexisting neighborhoods.”“Ensure suitability of development in Rural areas,promoting overall compatibility.”
40. Criteria of Application• Compatible with Plans and Policies;• Consistent with Zoning Ordinance;• Compatible with Surrounding Area;• Changed Conditions;• Effect on Natural Environment;• Community Need;• Development Patterns.
41. Analysis – Basis for Staff Recommendation • Unlimited outside storage is not allowed in a residential zoning district, & only allowed conditionally in a CG district. • The “industrial service” category also allows for warehouse and freight movement, full-service vehicle repair, waste related uses such as a junk yard, and an industrial services related business such as an oilfield pipe storage complete with a shipping and machinery repair yard. • Pairing a less intensive zoning with a Conditional Use (which the Planning Commission instructed staff to initiate on their behalf) would allow conditions to be added to help mitigate effects & avoid future uses of CH next to this large residential district.
42. Analysis – Basis for Staff Recommendation • CH is one of the least compatible land uses next to an R&E district. • The Comprehensive Plan notes that CG/CH zoning adjacent to neighborhoods should be eliminated. CH is even more intense than CG/CH. CG is less. • The Zoning Ordinance provides for unlimited outside storage allowances for CH.
43. Analysis – Basis for Staff Recommendation • The Vision Plan calls for land east of the subject property to remain rural in nature. There are better use categories that would function better next to rural areas. • The Vision Plan calls for specific areas to be set aside for “Industrial” uses. This is not one of those, & it is important to remember the plethora of industrial properties throughout the city which are vacant.
44. Analysis – Basis for Staff Recommendation • The proposed zone change/industrial use does not fall in with the intent of future land use patterns in this area. The land directly to the east of the subject property will remain R&E. Therefore, the proposed change would not be an appropriate development pattern.
45. Analysis – Basis for Staff Recommendation • A rezone from Ranch & Estate to Heavy Commercial is too extreme of a change in terms of land use because • Ranch & Estate creates the least environmental impact on land use, whereas; • Heavy Commercial allows for and potentially creates one of the most extreme environmental impacts • The proposed zone change would be at cross purposes with the Comprehensive Plan, the Vision Plan, and the Zoning Ordinance.
46. Zone ChangeZ 12–14: Basil El-Masri• A request of a Zone change from a combination of Ranch & Estate (R&E) and General Commercial (CG), to single zoning of General Commercial (CG), on the following property:• 4028 South Bryant Boulevard, approximately 350 feet from the intersection of South Bryant Boulevard and Ben Ficklin Road. This property occupies 4.35 acres of the E Hermes Survey 0174 abstract 0349, in southern San Angelo.Nine (9) notifications were sent. One in opposition.

53. Recommendation• Planning staff recommends approving this Zone change request.• On November 19, 2012, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the requested Zone change by an unanimous 6-0 vote.
54. History & BackgroundGeneral Information• General Commercial (CG) and Ranch & Estate (R&E) zoning;• Mostly vacant commercial lot;• CG, R&E, CH, & CG/CH zoning in the area;• Vacant residential lot, a convenience gas station, storage facilities, general supply, a tattoo parlor, landscaping business, church and residential single-family homes.
55. Criteria of Application• Compatible with Plans and Policies• Consistent with Zoning Ordinance• Compatible with Surrounding Area• Changed Conditions• Effect on Natural Environment• Community Need• Development Patterns
56. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation• Compatible with Plans and Policies − Split-lot zoning; rezoning to a single district allows for greater flexibilities with expanding the use − Vision Plan calls for „Commercial‟, follows aspects of the 2003 Comp Plan• Appropriate transition to CG zoning − Less intensive than CH zoning − Matches the zoning that already exists − Leads to orderly development − Commercial nodes exists near intersections; emerging commercial corridor
57. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation• Consistent with the Ordinance – − CG zoning falls under Type 2: Limited Outdoor Storage − Vehicles do not count towards the maximum outdoor storage − CG zoning matches the intended use• Minimal effects on the natural environment.• Diversifies commercial zoning in the area.• The Conditional Use heard by the Planning Commission included a condition mandated either setbacks from the residential area or a privacy fence between it and the residential area.
