  39. 39. Options In considering this application, the Council may: • Approve the proposed zone change; or • Remand the application back to Planning Commission for further discussion, in which case another public hearing will need to be scheduled; or • Deny the proposed zone change.
  40. 40. Staff Recommendation • Planning staff recommends approving the proposed zone change. • On October 21, 2013 the Planning Commission recommended approval 6-0.
  41. 41. Criteria for Approval Whether and the extent to which the proposal is: • • • • • • • Compatible with plans and polices Consistent with Zoning Ordinance Compatible with surrounding area Changing conditions that would require an amendment Effect on natural environment Meets community need Consistent with development patterns
  42. 42. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation • Request would eliminate a split-zoned lot & is in line with the Comp Plan that seeks to “Improve relationship(s) between adjacent commercial and residential land use adjacencies.” One way is to “Rezone or remove any CG/CH zoning from adjacent to existing neighborhoods.” • The proposal to change the subject property into one zoning district could prevent potential heavier uses currently allowed on portions of the lot. • No amendment to the Vision Plan needed. • Traffic- nearby ML zoning potentially more intense than request.
  43. 43. Analysis – Basis for Recommendation • Traffic able to exit off Lake Drive onto either North Chadbourne Street or W. 48th Street to nearby frontage road- accessible to Hwy 87; ideal for both commercial & industrial purposes and meets a community need. • Location of R&E zoning district already lends itself to potential traffic and noise that could be generated by ML zoning, but a bit less if zone change were approved due to removal of CG/CH which could place a heavier demand on area. • A rezone is an opportunity for infill development in area envisioned for density as opposed to continuing to annex property at the City’s northern borders.
  44. 44. Right of Way Abandonment Nelson Avenue/Alley Abandonment Request: Teri Jackson A complete unimproved 60-foot wide public right-of-way for Nelson Avenue extending north for a distance of 485 feet from Era Street, east of Block 3, Lots 8-13 of the Goodfellow Court Annex, and immediately west to property outside of the City Limits, -AND- an abandonment of the complete 13-foot wide rightof- way for an alley extending west of Nelson Avenue and directly north of the Goodfellow Court Annex, Block 3, and adjacent to the entire northern length of Lot 8 of same subdivision in east San Angelo. Thirteen (13) notifications were sent; 1 (one) returned in favor, none in opposition.

  51. 51. Staff Recommendation • Planning staff recommends approving the proposed street and alley abandonments subject to conditions. • Planning Commission recommended approval of this request by a vote of 6-0 on October 21, 2013.
  52. 52. Analysis- Basis for Recommendation • Nelson Avenue & alley north of the subdivision unimproved/minimally used- alternative routes can be created to neighboring properties. • No turnaround or cul-de-sac for Nelson Ave provided so re-subdivision would be needed anyway. • Alleyway too narrow – does not meet current development requirements- 13 ft versus 20 feet required. • Abandonment would not interfere with current or future Thoroughfare Plan.
  53. 53. Proposed Conditions 1. Replat Lots 8-13 & abandoned rights-of-ways into a single lot. 2. Retain an unobstructed drainage easement along Nelson Avenue of sufficient width to provide adequate capacity of rainwater flows from Era Street. Said easement shall be reserved on the plat document.
