II.        Public Hearings and Action Items from Public Hearings.               

 

                 A.      Hold a public hearing and take action on Z09-12 (Fannie Mae), a request to rezone approximately 0.3 acres from “CN” (Neighborhood Commercial) to “RSF-7” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet), legally described as Lots 7 and 8, Southeast Block 2 of the Interurban Addition, generally located south of Third Street and east of Dallas Avenue, with the approximate address being 320 Dallas Avenue in League City, Texas.

 

Heidi Shannon, Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Ms. Shannon informed the Commission that application is to rezone 0.3 acres from “CN” (Neighborhood Commercial) to “RSF-7” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet).

 

Ms. Shannon further informed the Commission that the applicant indicates that there is a potential buyer who wants to utilize the developed property for a residential use with no commercial uses.

 

Ms. Shannon added that the property is currently developed with a residence. However, it was subsequently rezoned for a day spa.

 

Ms. Shannon stated that on September 6, 2007, the property was granted two variances by the Zoning Board of Adjustments. The first variance was to the required minimum driveway width for a commercial property. The second variance was to the required number of off street parking spaces.

Ms. Shannon further stated that on September 17, 2007, the property was granted a buffer yard variance to reduce the required 30-foot buffer yard on both the southern and eastern property lines between the “CN” zoning district and the immediate adjacent “RSF-7” zoning to zero. The property was granted the variance conditioned upon the variance being applicable only to a day spa use.

 

The property was not improved to support the commercial zoning and was never occupied as a commercial business.

 

Mr. Bogus asked if the property may be rezoned numerous times.

 

Ms. Shannon responded affirmatively.

 

*Mr. Landon arrived to the meeting at 6:06 pm.

 

Mr. Hullman opened the public hearing at 6:07 pm.

 

Sheri Williams, the applicant’s representative came forward to inform the Commission that there is a contract to sell the property contingent on the rezone application.

 

Bobby Murray, 313 Houston Ave.: Informational comment

 

Mr. Hullman closed the public hearing at 6:11 pm.

 

Mr. Hullman asked if the variances that were approved in 2007 would be removed if the application before the Commission was approved.

 

Ms. Shannon stated that she would need to discuss Mr. Hullman’s question with the Planning Manager.

 

Mr. Bogus made a motion to approve Z09-12 (Fannie Mae) subject to the deletion of the previously approved variances.

 

Mr. Koonce seconded the motion,

 

The motion was adopted by a vote of 8-0-0.
