Motion to Rezone 2201 Beaumont Drive from PUD-M-8 to PUD-IS* and to Approve a General Development Plan (Petitioner: Phillip McCorkle for Sherwin Robin and Brian Robin)
Phillip McCorkle as Agent for Sherwin Robin and Brian Robin, Petitioner (File No. 17-004804-ZA) is requesting approval of a rezoning map amendment for property located at 2201 Beaumont Drive to rezone the properties from PUD M-8 (Planned Unit Development-Multifamily, 8-units per acre) district to a PUD-IS* (Planned Unit Development-Institutional) and approval of a General Development Plan (17-004780-PLAN). Additionally, a comprehensive plan amendment application (17-004963-CPA) has been filed. The subject property consists of a 9.32-acre parcel. The property is currently vacant and formerly was the site of an unauthorized construction debris landfill.
Because of the environmentally sensitive nature of the subject property, the petitioner is proposing to tie the proposed project to a particular General Development Plan under the provisions of 8-3031(D)(1)(a). This provision allows the Mayor and Aldermen to approve additional requirements that may include limiting land uses permitted within the district, requiring additional use conditions, and other “…special design standards or special conditions…” as indicated in Section 8-3031(D)(1)(a) of the Zoning Ordinance. This would also include specifying development standards that are not provided in the base district (the proposed PUD-IS).
The site is surrounded by an institutional use (school), and single-family residential uses. The proposed use (a single-story self-storage mini-warehouse complex) will not adversely affect the nearby uses. This rezoning is an effective “downzoning” of the property (from multifamily) and will include an environmental cleanup of the informal landfill that was active several decades ago.
The petitioner is proposing to clean the site prior to construction, and has (under the provisions of Section 8-3031) tied the project to a Development Plan. The proposed development would meet all requirements of design for the use, and would generate minimal traffic.
The Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of this request on August 29, 2017.
