  • This zone change was a condition of the variance approval in order to prevent setting a precedent for have commercial sized signs on residential lots.CN is the least intensive of all the commercial districts. It is designed specifically to limit traffic generation, the size of the buildings, and be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.
  • The FAR or Floor Area Ratio refers to the size of the building in relation to the size of the lot. For example…If you have a 10,000 sq ft lot in a General Commercial zone you’d be allowed to have a building as large as 20,000 sq ft.In a Neighborhood Commercial district a 10,000 sq ft lot would only allow a 6,000 sq ft building.This 60% cap was put in place specifically to encourage smaller businesses that would be neighborhood serving such as barber shops and cafesAnd discourage large commercial enterprises like Wal-mart Supercenters from invading neighborhoods.Additionally…
  • Some Criteria to keep in mind.State law mandates zoning be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan,Zone changes should be consistent with the Zoning OrdinanceThey should be compatible with the surrounding areaAnd reflect the goal for development patterns in the city
  • Staff finds that Neighborhood Commercial is consistent with the Vision Plan’s classification of this particular area as “neighborhood”.Also, we find that this request is consistent with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance as the CN district is designed to act as a buffer between the neighboring residences and adjacent uses that are much more intensive such as high speed thoroughfares like US Hwy 87/277 and the industrial zoning district adjacent to the Hwy.Additionally, we find that CN zoning is compatible with the neighboring RS-1 zoning as well as the commercial use just north of the residences north of the site.Finally, we find that CN zoning for this lot reflects the development pattern goals of the comprehensive plan in that the plan calls for CN to be clustered around intersections of major thoroughfares that are adjacent to residential neighborhoods.
  • Because the limitations imposed upon this type of zoning district appear well-suited for this area and are consistent with plans for the city.I’d be happy to try to answer any questions you may have.
  • CN is the least intensive of all the commercial districts. It is designed specifically to limit traffic generation and be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.This is accomplished in several ways.
  • First is with the FAR or Floor Area Ratio which refers to the size of the building in relation to the size of the lot. For example…If you have a 10,000 sq ft lot in a General Commercial zone you’d be allowed to have a building as large as 20,000 sq ft.In a Neighborhood Commercial district a 10,000 sq ft lot would only allow a 6,000 sq ft building.This 60% cap was put in place specifically to encourage smaller businesses that would be neighborhood serving such as barber shops and cafesAnddiscourage large commercial enterprises like Wal-mart Supercenters from invading neighborhoods.Additionally…
  • Some Criteria to keep in mind.State law mandates zoning be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan,Zone changes should be consistent with the Zoning OrdinanceThey should be compatible with the surrounding areaAnd reflect the goal for development patterns in the city
  • We find that Neighborhood Commercial is consistent with the Vision Plan’s classification of this particular area as “neighborhood”.Also, we find that this request is consistent with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance as the CN district is designed to act as a buffer between the neighboring residences and adjacent uses that are much more intensive such as high speed thoroughfares like Knickerbocker Road and large General Commercial uses.Additionally, we find that CN zoning is compatible with the neighboring RS-1 zoning as well as the CN and CG zoning across Knickerbocker.Further, we find that CN zoning for this lot reflects the development pattern goals of the comprehensive plan in that the plan calls for CN to be clustered around intersections of major thoroughfares that are adjacent to residential neighborhoods. Finally, the infrastructure to contain traffic and substantial parking area that is present at the site would prevent traffic and excess commercial parking from invading the adjacent neighborhood.
