Projection
94 (+ existing 24) Multi-Family Units: 118 x 6% = 7 students
Buffer RequiremntsThe proposed development shall meet the buffer requirements for Master Planned Developments as defined in the UDO. PUDs have Perimeter Buffers that are as follows:
1) 50 feet front buffer
2) 100 feet side buffer (abutting residential FLU)
3) 50 feet rear buffer (abutting nonresidential FLU)
Attitude of Property Owners:Nine (9) 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.
