Land Use Change on Harvey Mitchell Parkway

  1. 1. Regular Agenda #1 Rio Grande & Harvey Mitchell Comprehensive Plan Amendment
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. Urban “Generally for areas that should have a very intense level of development activities. These areas will tend to consist of townhomes, duplexes, and high-density apartments. General commercial and office uses, business parks, and vertical mixed-use may also be permitted within growth and redevelopment areas.” - Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2009
  4. 4. Natural Areas Reserved “Generally for areas that represent a constraint to development and that should be preserved for their natural function or open space qualities. These areas include floodplains and riparian buffers, as well as recreation facilities.” - Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2009
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. Options for Action • Accept the applicant’s proposal of amending the Comprehensive Plan to Urban and Natural Areas Reserved designations; • Denial of request – The property will remain Suburban Commercial, Urban, and Natural Areas Reserved as currently designated on the Comprehensive Plan; • Propose an alternative land use and character designation for this property.
