Pennsylvania Avenue rezoning

Pennsylvania Avenue rezoning

Planner Sara Henke, Planning Director Mike Thompson and Assistant County Attorney Kirk Downey brought this case, RZ-06-009 before the Board for discussion during the September 19th meeting.
The applicant, Pennsylvania Avenue 2003 LLC, has requested that the property, 0.47 acres located approximately 1,000 feet east of the intersection of U. S. Route 11 and North Pointe Drive be rezoned from RS - Residential, Suburban to BG--Business General.
This matter is on the agenda for discussion by the Commissioners on the issue of whether to grant or deny the rezoning. The applicant has stated that there was a mistake in the original zoning designation and that the parcel is surrounded by business zoning classifications.
Discussion centered on an opinion that a change in the character of the neighborhood took place rather than a mistake having been made in the original zoning. Consensus was reached that Staff will draft a letter of support for change in character of the neighborhood. A vote would be taken at the next Commissioners' meeting.
