9. Motion to Rezone 19, 23, 25 & 101 E 40th St (Petitioner: Harold Yellin for Donna Pagliarullo / Swamp Kitty LLC)
Strategic Priority
Neighborhood Revitalization

Harold Yellin, Petitioner for Donna Pagliarullo / Swamp Kitty LLC, (File No. 18-005938-ZA) is requesting approval of a rezoning map amendment for four existing lots of record on the Southside of East 40th Street near the intersection with Drayton Street from TN-2 (Traditional Neighborhood, Mid-City) to TC-1 (Traditional Commercial, Mid-City).  The subject properties comprise approximately 0.40 acres located within the Mid-City local historic district.  Each of the parcels is improved with a residential structure.  Three of the properties are at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Drayton Street and East 40th Street.  The fourth property is at the southeast corner of the intersection.

The Chatham County-Savannah Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map designates the subject property as Traditional-Neighborhood.  As provided in the Comprehensive Plan, the Traditional-Neighborhood classification is defined as, “residential areas in close-proximity to downtown or in outlying historically-settled areas having development patterns characteristic of the Planned Town, Streetcar, and Early Automobile eras.  The existing zoning district is compatible with the Traditional-Neighborhood FLUM designation.  The Planning Commission finds that the existing uses are compatible with the current zoning and a zoning change is not warranted.

On December 11, 2018, the Planning Commission voted to recommend DENIAL of the rezoning request.
