FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A rezoning request for property at the corner of Sunshine Street and National Avenue scheduled to come back before the Planning & Zoning Commission July 27 has been postponed to the Aug. 24 meeting.
The current proposal is to rezone 2.6 acres of property generally located at 1739, 1745 and 1755 S. National Avenue, 1138 E. University Street and 1111, 1119, 1133 and 1141 E. Sunshine Street from a single-family residential district to a general retail district, and establish new conditional overlay district No. 220.
At the request of developer Ralph Duda III, City Council at its May 22 meeting remanded the request back to the Planning & Zoning Commission in order to address changes to the project, including concessions to the conditional overlay district.
A conditional overlay is a regulatory tool that creates a special zoning district, which is intended to allow a floating zone to be established as an overlay to a base zoning district. A conditional overlay limits particular land uses to be established and can incorporate specific design standards and development related conditions.
The Planning & Zoning Commission recommended against approval at its April 20 meeting.
