PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The developer proposed construction of a 42-unit residential development consisting of 14, 3-unit buildings. The proposed use is classified by the zoning and development code as Household Living and the specific residential building type proposed falls under the definition of multiplex. The proposed density is 1 unit per 6,463 sq ft of land area, or 7 units per acre. Current zoning of the property (R-7.5) allows a maximum density of 1 unit per 7,500 sq ft of lot area, or 5.8 units per acre and permits only detached houses, attached houses and two unit houses residential building types. Under current zoning the property could be developed with up to 36 dwelling units in these building types. Because the applicant is proposing 42 dwelling units in a multiplex building type a rezoning to R-1.5 is required. The applicant has chosen R-1.5 because it is the first district that allows multiplex building types.
