BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:
The city of Duluth does ordain:
Section 1. That Plate No. 29 of the zoning district map as contained in the Appendix to Chapter 50 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, is amended to read as follows:
Section 2. That this ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days from and after its passage and publication.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This zoning ordinance amendment provides a zoning change, from R-2, Two Family Residential, to R-3, Apartment Residential, for property located northwest of Mesaba Avenue between Second Avenue West and West Cascade Street.
The intent of the rezoning is to facilitate the development of a four to eight unit condominium structure with basement parking.
Duluth city planning commission recommended, by a 6-5 vote, denial of
this zoning change following a public hearing held December 9, 2003. In
making their recommendation, the commission cited the following findings:
The department of planning and development had recommended approving the zoning change, citing that the request is a logical expansion of the existing R-3 District.
Application Received: October 21, 2003
