971477

Parvin Road on the west side of N. Bennington Road from District R-1b (One-Family Dwellings) to District R-2b (Two-Family Dwellings). (12010-P)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA"
Carrie Flack, City Development, stated that ordinances 971477 and 971478 are companion cases. The purpose of the ordinances is to rezone about eight acres, which will allow for 26 duplexes on 13 lots and 44 four-plex units on 11 lots. Ordinances 971479 and 9714890 will rezone 13 acres to allow 184 apartment units with seven, 2 1/2 story buildings. Ordinance 971481 will rezone 7 1/2 acres to allow a day care facility, two story office building, bank building and a 90 bed nursing home. The property is located at N.E. Parvin Road and N. Bennington Road. The developments are located across from an underground mining. Staff believes that single family housing across from an industrial zoning is inappropriate, because mining has a negative impact on single family dwellings. Staff has worked with the applicant to maintain a low density, while still accommodating the multi-family project on a terrace approach to develop the property to single family residential. Staff did recommend the R2d zoning for the duplex, four-plex units and the apartment project with the community unit project. John Roe, Attorney, stated there were some concerns raised about the project. He consulted with Dr. Strauss a professor at the University of Kansas, to look at the application and to give his opinion on whether the land use is appropriate. Dr. Strauss distributed a report to the committee (see hand-out on file in the City Clerk's Office). He gave his opinion regarding the zoning for the project and recommended approval for the ordinances. He gave reasons why the ordinances should be approved. Councilmember Ford, expressed concerns regarding schools in the area, whether the schools will be able to handle additional children if the apartment complexes are built. Mr. Ford also expressed concerns regarding two matters: 1) the tax the project would have on the existing school ; 2) and blasting, which would make multi-family inappropriate. Mr. Roe stated there have been discussions regarding on how the development will impact the schools. Betty Ramirez and Shirley Smith, residents, spoke in opposition of the ordinance. City Plan Commission and staff recommended approval with certain conditions. Committee recommended to hold the ordinance for one week.
