Item No:                    5.D.3.

 

Meeting Date:           July 8, 2013

 

From:                          Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

Subject:                      Ordinance rezoning Service Electric Company from County LM (Light Industrial) to City M-1 (Industrial) - 31729 Executive Blvd

 

 

 


Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County LM (Light Industrial) to City M-1 (Industrial).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 3.1 acres.  The property is generally located on the west side of Executive Boulevard, south of County Road 44 as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County LM (Light Industrial). The current use of the property is an industrial warehouse and the proposed use is to continue the current use as the office and warehouse for Service Electric Company, which is the existing business at this location. The surrounding zoning designations are County R-6 (Urban Residential) to the north; City M-1 (Industrial) to the south; County LM (Light Industrial) to the east and County A (Agriculture) to the west. The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are County Urban Expansion to the north, east and west, with City Industrial to the south.  The existing Land Use designation for the subject property is County Urban Expansion.

 

The proposed zoning district of City M-1 (Industrial) is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed future land use designation of City Industrial. This request does not appear to create a detriment to the surrounding properties.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are undeveloped, single family residential and industrial/warehouse uses.

 

The property currently has City utilities available.

 

By a vote of 6 to 0 on June 21, 2013, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City M-1 (Industrial) thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for this area.

            2.         Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through annexing of this property.
