37. Approval to Amend the City of Savannah Zoning Map to Rezone 504 and 506 E. Montgomery Crossroads (PINs 20494 03002 and 20494 03003) from RSF-6 (Residential Single Family-6) to OI-T (Office and Institutional-Transition) with Conditions. Petition of Ed Garvin (Agent) for Desktop Rentals, LLC (Owner). File No. 20-004503-ZA
Ed Garvin (Agent) for Desktop Rentals LLC (Owner) is requesting to an amendment to the Zoning Map from Residential Single Family-6 (RSF-6) to Office Institutional-Transition (OI-T) for properties located at 504 and 506 E. Montgomery Cross Road. The parcels located on the north side of East Montgomery Cross Road between Aegean Avenue and Weiner Drive and total 0.46 acres. Each parcel was developed with a single-family residential structure built in conjunction with the Skyland Terrace Neighborhood.
The intent of the OI-T classification is to “facilitate the orderly transition of properties originally developed for residential use to limited nonresidential uses. These properties are in areas where increased automobile traffic, road widening or other factors have diminished residential viability, resulting in the need for a transitional area to buffer surrounding residential properties.” The definition of this zoning district applies to the proposed rezoning of the subject properties.
The MPC staff report and subsequent recommendation from the Planning Commission find that a rezoning to OI-T would not likely lead to negative impacts on the existing single-family residential neighborhood due to the limited range of uses permitted in the district provided these additional conditions were applied to the rezoning:
All other applicable provisions of the Zoning Ordinance will apply to the rezoning.
On January 12,2021, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the requested rezoning for 504 and 506 E. Montgomery Cross Road from the RSF-6 (Single Family Residential) zoning district to the OI-T (Office Institutional - Transition) zoning district with the following conditions:
All other applicable provisions of the Zoning Ordinance shall apply to the rezoning.
