  10. 10. Background:<br />Apostolic House of Worship plans for a day care operation at its location;<br />It intends to construct nonew buildings or additions to the existing building there;<br />It plans to use each of five full classrooms, a large nursery and kitchen already existing in the church building on this subject property;<br />At the May meeting of the Planning Commission, discussion revolved around concern of traffic management;<br />

  13. 13. Analysis:<br />A Special Use is a legislative act to allow some particular proposed activity at a location in a zoning district where such activity would otherwise be prohibited;<br />Special Uses should be restricted to circumstances “where such use can provide effective transition between less restrictive and more restrictive zoning districts”;<br />This property is located in a large swath of RS-1 zoning, and therefore, no transition is provided;<br />
  14. 14. Recommendation:<br />City staff recommends denying this requested Special Use for a day care in an RS-1 zoning district.<br />The Planning Commission recommends approving this requested Special Use, by a vote of 6-1.<br />
  15. 15. B. SU 11-02: Ray Zapata <br />Request for approval of a Special Use to allow placement of a “band stand” on the following property:<br />A 1.722 acre tract located approximately 285’ west of the intersection of Old Knickerbocker Road and South Bryant Boulevard in south central San Angelo, specifically the remainder of Tract C in the T.J.A.K. Addition to San Angelo<br />7 notifications sent<br />

  20. 20. LOOKING NORTH FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY<br />
  21. 21. LOOKING SOUTH FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY<br />
  22. 22. Background:<br />Proposing a “band stand” on the site which would host periodic events of a cultural or musical nature, in association with the neighboring restaurant;<br />These activities are generally of a spectator nature and draw large numbers of people to specific events or shows;<br />Such a use is only allowed in an ML district with approval of a Special Use;<br />
  23. 23. Analysis:<br />The area is unique in that it is surrounded by a variety of zoning classifications, from very light (RS-1) to very heavy (ML);<br />The property is also near two major thoroughfares;<br />Old Knickerbocker Rd is surrounded by manufacturing uses and is gradually transitioning to a commercial corridor;<br />Residential development in this area is isolated and unlikely to continue;<br />
  24. 24. Analysis:<br />This area truly functions as a transition area;<br />Traffic circulation is already present;<br />Compatible with surrounding area;<br />Impacts minimized by conditions;<br />
  25. 25. Recommendation:<br />Staff & the Planning Commission unanimously recommend approval of this request, subject to conditions outlined below:<br />Events on this property can only be held between the hours of 7 am to 11 pm Sun-Thurs & 7 am to 1 am Fri & Sat;<br />Placement of a privacy fence along the northern boundary of the site; and<br />Speakers and lighting will be situated so as to minimize sound and light directed at nearby residences<br />
  26. 26. C. SU 11-03: B.A. & Winkay Reed<br />request for approval of a Special Use to allow a “bed and breakfast” on the following property:<br />3149 Red Bluff Rd E, approximately 385’ west of the intersection of Red Bluff Rd E and Red Bluff Rd W, in far southwest San Angelo, specifically on Lot 93 in Block 4 of the Red Bluff Group of the Lake Nasworthy Addition to San Angelo<br />9 notifications sent<br />

  30. 30. LOOKING WEST FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY<br />
  31. 31. LOOKING EAST OF SUBJECT PROPERTY<br />
  32. 32. Background<br />The property owner desires to convert their existing guest house into a bed and breakfast facility;<br />Allowed by right in all heavier commercial districts and as a conditional use in others;<br />Only a special use would allow this in any residential district;<br />
  33. 33. Analysis<br />Surrounded by RS-1 zoning;<br />Does not provide a transition from more intensive zoning to less intensive zoning;<br />Nearest commercial zoning is across this section of the Lake, and PD is two blocks west;<br />Impacts on neighbors and traffic on narrow, winding residential street;<br />
  34. 34. Recommendation<br />City staff recommends denial of the request;<br />Planning Commission unanimously recommends approval of this request;<br />
