May 10, 2018, City Council Regular Meeting
12. Motion to Rezone 1300 Wheaton Street, 0 Helmken Street, and 0 Mastick Street from I-L/R-M-25 to B-N (Petitioner: Robert L. McCorkle, III for Parth Patel)
Strategic Priority
Neighborhood Revitalization

The Mayor and Aldermen approved this rezoning request following a zoning hearing at the April 26, 2018 City Council Meeting.  The action being considered now is the approval of an ordinance for the rezoning.

Robert L. McCorkle, III as Agent for Parth Patel, is requesting to rezone property located at 0 Helmken Street, 0 Mastick Street and 1300 Wheaton Street from I-L (Light Industrial) and R-M-25 (Multifamily Residential, 25 units per net acre) to the B-N (Neighborhood Business) Zoning District. The purpose for rezoning is to allow Use 50 (Fuel Station) to be developed on the vacant 0.77 acre site.

The predominant land use near the subject site includes single-family residential neighborhoods. The I-L Zoning District is not often located adjacent to residential districts so as to prevent incompatible land uses typically associated with industry, production and heavy commercial to be located next to established neighborhoods.  The proposed rezoning of the subject site to the B-N Zoning District would encourage more neighborhood commercial land uses to be permitted along the Wheaton Street corridor.

On April 3, 2018, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval to rezone the properties located at 0 Helmken Street, 0 Mastick Street, and 1300 Wheaton Street. The properties are located in Aldermanic District 3.
