Applicant has requested a delay. No new public hearing date set. Please check back for updates.
The applicant wishes to rezone the parcels from General Commercial (GC) to Planned Residential (PR) for the development of two multi-story, mixed commercial and residential buildings, with associated surface and structured parking, residential amenities, stormwater management, and other site improvements. The Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Designation for these parcels is High Impact Commercial. The current zoning allows up to 48 bedrooms per acre. The development would include a total of 675 bedrooms (Site 1: 460 bedrooms; Site 2: 215 bedrooms) for an average density of approximately 89 bedrooms per acre (Site 1: 87 bedrooms/acre; Site 2: 95 bedrooms/acre). This represents an increase in the allowable density under the current zoning district. The Future Land Use Designation of General Commercial does not contemplate maximum residential density.
