BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:

WHEREAS, Joseph Kall and others have submitted to the city council a petition to rezone property located south of Piedmont Avenue and northwest of Nanticoke Street, 400-650 feet west of the intersection of Piedmont Avenue and Nanticoke Street; and said petition was duly referred to the city planning commission for a study, report and public hearing and the city planning commission has subsequently reported its recommendation of denial to the city council; and

WHEREAS, the recommendation of denial was made because of the city planning commission's findings that the requested rezoning classification is inappropriate to protect the comprehensive plan and to conserve and to protect property values in the neighborhood.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the petition to rezone the subject property to allow for a change from R-1-b, One Family Residential, to R-3 Apartment Residential, zoning is denied based on the following finding:
this is an inappropriate intrusion of high density multi family zoning in an established single-family neighborhood.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution denies rezoning from R-1-b, One Family Residential District, to R-3, Apartment Residential District, of property located south of Piedmont Avenue and northwest of Nanticoke Street, 400-650 feet west of the intersection of Piedmont Avenue and Nanticoke Street. The planning commission approved this resolution at its July 13, 2004 meeting.
