RESOLUTION - Amending the Proposed Land Use Plan within the Westport Planning Area Plan by changing the recommended land use on a 0.15-acre tract of land located at 3939 Wyandotte Street by changing the recommended land use from one/two family residential to multi-family residential, high-density. (132-S-41)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Resolution. It was noted that this a companion to Ordinance 150231. In 1976, the current owner purchased the property and began operating an administrative office within the home. At that time the property was zoned R-4 (Low Apartments) a district in which administrative office uses were prohibited. In 2009, the City Council approved a neighborhood downzoning which included the subject property (Case No. 14008-P). The downzoning resulted in the property going from R-4 to R-1b (One-family Dwellings), a district which also prohibited office uses. With the adoption of the new zoning and development code, District R-1b converted to R-6, the current zoning. As with the previous zonings, R-6 also prohibits office uses. Section 88-305-04 of the zoning and development code allows administrative office uses as home occupations subject to certain standards, however, the office does not meet these standards. As a consequence, the office use is not permitted and a rezoning is necessary in order to permit the use. The owner received a notice of violation on September 26, 2013 for operating the office in District R-6, where such a use is not permitted. On October 11, 2013, the owner submitted a request for an appeal of this determination to the Board of Zoning Adjustment (Case No. 14008-A-2). This request has been continued five times, most recently on January 27, 2015, at which time the Board continued the request to the April 28, 2015 hearing pending action on this request.
