PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
John Eckardt, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The original applicant for this rezoning was Paige Hinshaw, represented by Jerome Murphy of the Martin Pringle Law firm. The property is owned by Martha Zermer-Honig. Ms. Hinshaw filed the rezoning from District M 3-5 to District DX-7 because she wanted to live on the second floor of the building and work on the ground floor. Residential uses are not allowed in District M 3-5. Following the City Plan Commission hearing, Ms. Hinshaw stated she wanted to terminate the rezoning due to the cost of anticipated building construction. Following this notification, the owner, Ms. Zermer-Honig wrote that she still wanted to proceed with the rezoning. To staff’s knowledge none of the facts have changed from the staff report dated January 5, 2016.
