a)      Tract 1: Rezone from “RSF-7” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet) to “OS” (Open Space), approximately 4.2 acres in size, legally described as a portion of Tracts 4 and 5 of the I & GN RR Survey, Section 3.

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt provided a brief description of each tract request and descriptions of the proposed zoning districts.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt informed the Commission that tracts 1 and 2 essentially “shift” a park area from a location along the border of the development to a more centralized location. Acreage not accounted for in the “shift” will be used for additional park areas throughout the master plan. Overall, parks uses increase 13.8 acres to 26.5 acres from 12.7 acres. The applicant indicates that by placing the parks in a centralized area, 95% of the lots within the subdivision would be within a ¼-mile walking distance. The “OS” zoning district is intended to provide for appropriate use and development within lands which include drainage ways, utility easements, undeveloped open space and parklands.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt further informed the Commission that tracts 3, 4 and 5 are to redistribute the park areas throughout the subdivision in order for greater flexibility. If approved, the zoning of the property will not immediately coincide with the proposed master plan. Over time, the parks and open space tracts will be defined and located as each section is designed, constructed and platted. The “RSF-7” zoning district is intended for single-family residential development with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet. This zoning district is the most utilized residential zoning district within League City.  

 

Mr. Froeschner opened the public hearing at 6:32pm.

 

With no individuals to come forward Mr. Froeschner closed the public hearing at 6:33pm.
