Land Use Change for 1201 Norton Lane

  1. 1. Agenda Item #3 1201 Norton Lane Comprehensive Plan Amendment
  2. 2. Estate “Generally for areas that, due to public service limitations or a prevailing rural character, should have limited development activities. These areas will tend to consist of low-density single-family residential lots (average 20,000 square feet) clustered around open space or large lots (minimum one acre).” - Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2009
  3. 3. Suburban Commercial “Generally for concentrations of commercial activities that cater primarily to nearby residents versus the larger community or region. Generally, these areas tend to be small in size and located adjacent to major roads (arterials and collectors). Design of those structures is compatible in size, roof type and pitch, architecture, and lot coverage with the surrounding single-family residential uses.” - Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2009
  4. 4. Comprehensive Plan Goals • Establish and protect distinct boundaries between various character areas; • Promote public and private development and design practices that ensure distinct neighborhoods, districts, and corridors. • Provide a diversified economy generating quality, stable, full-time jobs; bolstering the sales and property tax base; and contributing to a high quality of life; • Provide improved mobility through a safe, efficient, and well-connected multi-modal transportation system designed to be sensitive to the surrounding land uses.
  5. 5. Options for Recommendation • Approval – Accept the applicant’s proposal of amending the Comprehensive Plan to Suburban Commercial Designation; • Denial – the property will remain Estate as currently designated on the Comprehensive Plan; • Propose an alternative land use and character designation for this property.
