DATE: 12/11/2018 REFERENCE NO.: **G-19432 LOG NAME: 06CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT REZONING
CODE: G TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:   Authorize Initiation of Rezoning for Certain Properties Located in the Central Business (H) District Eligible Area within Downtown, in Accordance with the Comprehensive Plan (COUNCIL DISTRICT 9)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize the City Manager to initiate certain zoning changes in the Central Business (H) District eligible area of the Central Business District within Downtown, in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan.

 
DISCUSSION:

On November 21, 2000, the City Council received Informal Report No. 8289, regarding procedures for City Council initiated rezoning of properties to make the City's zoning districts more consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan. The procedures involve:

        1. Verifying that the zoning changes are consistent with the City's Comprehensive Plan;
        2. Allowing interested Council Members to conduct one or more informational meetings in or near the
            proposed zoning districts in order to explain the proposed changes to affected property owners;
        3. Briefing the City Council on the proposed zoning changes; and
        4. Placing an appropriate Mayor and Council Communication (M&C) on the agenda for the next
            regular City Council meeting authorizing the Planning and Development Department to prepare an
            appropriate rezoning application and schedule the application for the next available public
            hearing by the Zoning Commission.

Council Member Zadeh has requested that the City Manager initiate the rezoning process for properties in the Central Business (H) District eligible area, as depicted in the attached Proposed Zoning Map. The attached Current Zoning Map shows these parcels are currently residential, industrial, commercial uses or vacant land and designated as mixed use in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. The properties are zoned A-5 One Family,  B Two Family; C and D Multifamily; ER, E, F and G Commercial; I and J Industrial and PDs 258 and 298. Based on existing land uses and  land use policies in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan, staff recommends rezoning the areas to Central Business (H) District.

The City Council received an Informal Report on December 4, 2018 describing the zoning changes. Approval of this M&C will allow the City Manager to submit a rezoning application for a public hearing by the Zoning Commission on January 9, 2018 and for public hearing and action by the City Council on February 5, 2018.

The subject properties are located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 9.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
