Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Staff-Initiated Rezoning of 0.34 Acre from PL (Public Land) to C3 (Fringe Commercial District), Speedway Property, 1300 North Maple (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 6 Yeas and 0 Nays) (Ordinance No. ORD-12-30)
Memorandum
This ordinance will rezone a portion of this property from PL (Public Land) to C3 (Fringe Commercial District). There is an existing five-foot wide pedestrian path that runs along the eastern and northern sides of this commercial site. The path is located within a 30 foot wide dedicated public easement, which is zoned PL. The remainder of the site is zoned C3.

Since the easement area is not owned by the City, Planning staff initiated a rezoning of this easement area from PL to C3 (Fringe Commercial), which is consistent with the remainder of the site. The easement for public access will remain. The rezoning action will be considered separately from the Speedway site plan and is not required for approval of the site plan.

The easement dedication was a condition of a previous site plan proposal for a gas station on this site in 1972. That site plan was approved, the path was installed and the easement area was rezoned to PL at that time, but remained as part of the privately owned Speedway parcel. The 1972 site plan was never constructed; however the easement and zoning remain in place.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of July 17, 2012 found the proposed zoning to be consistent with the adjacent zoning, the surrounding land uses, and the City's Master Plan and recommended approval of the request.
