Title

An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Zoning of 0.6 Acre from C2B (Business Service District) to R2A (Two-Family Dwelling District), including 606, 610, 614, 616, 618, 622, and 628 South Ashley Street (CPC Recommendation: Denial - 0 Yeas and 8 Nays) (ORD-19-06) (8 Votes Required)

Memorandum

Approval of this resolution will zone this 0.60 acre area from C2B to R2A in order to discourage commercial uses on this site and maintain the existing scale and character. Consideration of this rezoning was directed by the City Council via Resolution R-18-361.

 

The City Planning Commission determined that the proposed zoning will discourage the redevelopment of the site thereby reducing the likelihood remediating soil contamination associated with portions of the site and recommended denial of the request at its meeting on February 5, 2019.  The Planning Commission discussed that the location of the properties in the historic district can help mitigate neighborhood character issues.

 

April 15, 2019 - More than 20% of the properties proposed for this rezoning have filed written protests with the City Clerk, requiring an eight-vote majority for this item.
