Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code), Rezoning of 58 Lots from R4C (Multiple-Family Dwelling District) to R1D (Single Family Dwelling District) and 4 Lots from R4C (Multiple-Family Dwelling District) to R1E (Single Family Dwelling District), West Hoover Avenue/West Davis Avenue Area Rezoning (CPC Recommendation: Denial - 5 Yeas and 3 Nays) (ORD-19-07)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will rezone 62 lots in the West Hoover Avenue and West Davis Avenue area from R4C (Multiple-Family Dwelling District) to a single family zoning designation, specifically 58 lots to R1D (Single Family Dwelling District) and 4 lots to R1E (Single Family Dwelling District) to protect the existing lower-density development pattern as recommended by the Future Land Use element of the Master Plan and directed by City Council Resolution R-18-361.

The City Planning Commission expressed agreement that the proposed rezoning is consistent with the City's Master Plan and elegantly addresses City Council resolution R-18-361, however, the Planning Commission did not recommend approval of the proposal at their meeting of February 5, 2019. The vote on their motion to recommend approval did not receive at least six affirmative votes. Commissioners who voted negatively generally indicated that existing development pattern protections were needed throughout the city and should be addressed universally through amendments to the Unified Development Code rather than downzoning neighborhoods individually.
