ORDINANCE NO. __________


AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 50 OF THE DULUTH CITY CODE, 1959, AS AMENDED, ZONING DISTRICT MAP NO. 40 AS CONTAINED IN THE APPENDIX TO CHAPTER 50, TO PROVIDE FOR THE RECLASSIFICATION FROM S, SUBURBAN, TO R-1-B, ONE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL, FOR PROPERTY LOCATED AT 2516 WOODLAND AVENUE (FOREST HILL CEMETERY).

CITY PROPOSAL:

The city of Duluth does ordain:

     Section 1. That Lots 6 through 14, Block 4, Woodland Park Sixth Division, be reclassified from S, suburban, to R-1-b, one family residential (FN 08057), and that Plate No. 40 of the zoning district map as contained in the Appendix to Chapter 50 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, is amended to read as follows:

(MAP)

     Section 2. That this ordinance shall take effect 30 days after its passage and publication.


PC/PLNG CF:tmf 7/9/2008


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This ordinance changes the zoning from S to R-1-b for property located on the east side of Woodland Avenue just north of Carlisle Avenue. Forest Hill Cemetery wishes to sell the caretaker home as they no longer have an on-site caretaker, do not want the cost of maintaining the building, and wish to improve their cash flow. This action conforms to the comprehensive plan and no conflicts would be created by rezoning the property.


Following the public hearing on July 8, 2008, the Duluth city planning commission voted 11 yes, zero no, and one abstaining to recommend this request.


Companion action to deny this request is found in Resolution 08-0429.
