TYPE I – Rezone

Request:  The purpose of this request is to rezone the .51 acre subject property from E-I (Employment Industrial) to RS-8 (Single Family Residential). Changing the zoning district from E-I to RS-8 will require an amendment to the future land use map, from Employment Center to Traditional Neighborhood, as this rezone request will no longer be compatible with the current Future Land Use map designation. The purpose of these requests is to allow for RS-8 uses on the subject property. As indicated by the application report, pending rezone approval, the applicants would like to construct a single family residence.
