Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Rezoning of 2.0 Acres from M1 (Limited Industrial District) to R4D With Conditions (Multiple-Family Dwelling District with Conditions), Kingsley Condominiums Conditional Rezoning, 221 Felch Street and 214 West Kingsley Street (CPC Recommendation: Denial - 5 Yeas and 3 Nays) (Ordinance No. ORD-16-15)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will rezone this 2.0 acre parcel from M1 (Limited Industrial) to R4D With Conditions (Multiple-Family Dwelling District with Conditions) to allow the site to be redeveloped for residential use.

The Master Plan future land use recommendation calls for continued industrial use on the site. The M1 district is intended for "various types of industrial and manufacturing uses" on large lots with deep setbacks in low-scale buildings. Office, research, storage and warehouses, manufacturing and assembly, and vehicle repair are among the permitted principal uses. Residential and retail commercial uses are prohibited. The R4D district is intended to permit high density residential uses outside of downtown in high-profile locations where the development can both support and benefit from commercial, service and employment centers and where the site size, location and geography minimize the impact of the intensity of land use.

The petitioner has offered to condition the requested R4D zoning designation with the following restrictions:

1. Maximum height for any building shall be 60 feet.
2. Maximum number of dwelling units shall be 51.
3. Maximum number of bedrooms shall be 110.
4. A path across the site mimicking the historic route of Allen Creek shall be constructed and made available for public use.
5. Up to 50% of the building at 214 West Kingsley shall be made available at minimal consideration to serve as an office and/or interpretive center for the Allen Creek Greenway Conservancy.
