Overview of Applicant’s Request:
The Applicant is requesting to rezone the subject property into a Planned Unit Development (PUD) district to develop a small lot residential subdivision over approximately 68 acres. The proposed development will be part of the residential development known as Carlson Place located to the north.
The proposed development consists of a maximum of 339 units developed at a density of up to five (5) units per acre. The minimum lot sizes proposed are 42 and 47 feet in width and 125 feet in length, with a minimum lot area of 5,000 square feet. To ensure the subdivision includes both lot widths, the proposed PUD requires a 50-percent mix of each lot width, with the option to vary by no more than 5% depending on street location and other side conditions.
Staff has reviewed the request in accordance with the Unified Development Code (UDC) and other applicable codes. Staff has determined that the proposed request partially complies with all of the criteria for rezoning and Planned Unit Developments established in UDC Sections 3.06.030 and 3.06.040, respectively, as outlined in the attached Staff Report.
As required by the Unified Development Code, all property owners and registered associations within a 300-foot radius of the subject property were notified of the Zoning Map Amendment request, a legal notice advertising the public hearing was placed in the Sun Newspaper (August 4, 2019) and signs were posted on-site. To date, staff has received no written comments in favor or opposition of the request.
Planning and Zoning Commission Recommendation:
