non-conforming use in the B1 zoning district, which places restrictions on future expansion or additions. If the property is rezoned to OA6, the current use becomes a use permitted by-right in the OA6 zoning district.

Tagged Passions:strategic and zoning

The Land Development Plan proposes commercial zoning for the property. The Central Small Area Plan further

states that commercial uses are designated in scattered locations along thoroughfares to accommodate some future commercial development. Also recommended in the Central Small Area Plan are limited, local-scale, office and institutional uses along East Salisbury Street. The requested OA6 district fits this recommendation by providing
Tagged Passions:property, commercial, development, zoning, and Development

for office institutional and limited commercial activities but also excluding heavier commercial uses that may be

less appropriate to apply to the property. The designation is also consistent with surrounding land uses, which
Tagged Passions:property and commercial

include single-family and multi-family residential uses, along with some commercial activities. The OA6

classification can also can help encourage continued investment into the property by removing its non-conforming status. Considering these factors, staff believes the requested OA6 district is consistent with the Land Development Plan and therefore reasonable and generally in the public interest.

While a general R40 district may not be appropriate at this location where most residentially zoned properties are designated R10 (Medium-Density Residential) and R15 (Low-Density Single Family Residential), the Conditional Use permitting process helps mitigate concerns over whether potential development can be compatible with surrounding properties, which is a primary concern with properties designated for Neighborhood Residential
