DRI Rcommendation:N/A.
General Land Use:Consistent
Planning Area A
Land Use Designation:
Mixed Use
Environmental Impacts:The property does not lie within the floodway and floodplain area. The developer will need an approved drainage plan prior to issuance of a Site Development permit, if a permit is required.
City Services:The area is served by all city services.
Traffic Impact:Traffic on Williams Road will drop to a level of service (LOS) of C at time of build out. Total trips produced should be 404 if apartments were built on the land with no rezoning. If rezoned to a use that would mirror single family detached residential it should produce a total of 689 total trips per day. Please see the Traffic analysis form attached.
Surrounding Zoning:North – PMUD (Planned Mixed Use Development)

West – GC & RE1 (General Commercial & Residential Estate 1)
Reasonableness of RequestThe request is compatible with existing land uses.
School ImpactSchool System did not indicate that there would be an impact.
Buffer RequirementsThe proposed development shall meet the buffer requirements as shown on the site plan and /or concept plan.
Attitude of Property Owners:Six (6) property owners within 300 feet of the subject properties were notified of the rezoning request. The Planning Department has not received any comments in regards to this case.
Additional Information:The purpose of this rezoning request is to create a multiple unit, single family atmosphere on a common property. Hence, to the naked eye, the development will look like a single family residential development but will actually be a multi-family product because each unit will sit on the same piece of property and tenants will lease and not purchase the unit.
