3.
Most Desirable Use:

The most desirable use for the land would be for it to continue to be used for a multi- family dwelling.

4.
Conservation of Property Values:

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:property and Conservation

Due to the fact that it has been used for a multi-family dwelling for many years, adjacent

property values should not be adversely effected. It is reasonable development and growth to allow for a mixture of residential types and to let the site continue to function as it has for some time. Recommendation: Based on information available prior to the public hearing, the staff recommends this rezoning petition be sent to the Town Council with a favorable recommendation. Analysis: Rezoning the site to R2 Multi-family Residential would allow the site to continue to be used as it already has for years and correct the oversight done in the Town's recent rezoning effort. Staff Comments: When the Town developed its new zoning map, the intent was to zone all multi-family
