Synopsis

The proposed rezoning is consistent with the Official Land Use Plan and compatible with surrounding land uses.

 

Staff Analysis

The subject property consists of nine parcels of land totaling 1.690 acres. The applicant (City of Mansfield) is proposing to rezone the entire property to the D-3 zone to stimulate future development within the area.

 

The D-3 zone is compatible with the existing commercial and residential uses along E. Broad Street in the Historic Downtown. The D-3 zone will provide new opportunities that will complement the surrounding residential uses to the east and south of this property. New construction on this property must comply with the development standards of the D, Downtown District and a site and building plan approved by Staff will be required prior to plat approval or issuance of a building permit.

 

The property falls within the Sub-Area 3 of the Official Land Use Plan. In this Sub-area, more opportunities exist for mixed uses in the downtown core/heart of the City. It also encourages continued and intentional efforts to preserve the Historic Downtown and associated residential properties in close proximity.

 

This property is located next to single-family uses to the south and some parts of the east and C-2 zoning to the north and west. This section of E. Broad Street is under exploration for inclusion into the D, Downtown District to encourage diverse uses leading into the Historic Downtown.

 

Summary

The property is currently zoned C-2, Community Business District, and rezoning it to the D, Downtown District (D-3 zone), will not be a deviation from the land use plan especially with the E. Broad Street under exploration for inclusion into the D District and its proximity to the Historic downtown district.

 

Recommendation

Staff recommends approval.
