No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:community center

(CC) zone to an Expansion Area Residential (EAR-2) zone, for 16.53 net (17.14 gross) acres, and to an Expansion Area Residential (EAR-3) zone, for 8.09 net and gross acres, for property located at 6600 Man O War Blvd.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:expansion and property

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND PROPOSED USE The Expansion Area Master Plan (EAMP), an adopted element of the 2013 Comprehensive Plan (Expansion Area 2a), recommends Community Center (CC) land use for the subject property. The petitioner proposes to rezone the subject property to the Expansion Area Residential 2 (EAR-2) and the Expansion Area Residential 3 (EAR-3) zones to allow an apartment complex development, comprised of 10 3-story and 4-story apartment buildings, at an average residential density of 12.84 units per gross acre, with a total 324 dwelling units. Within the remaining CC zoned land, the applicant is proposing a 3-story mixed- use building with 16 dwelling units and 11,600 square feet of non-residential space.

The Zoning Committee Recommended: Approval to the full Commission.
Tagged Passions:expansion, strategic, boards and commissions, development, zoning, Development, property, and community center

The Staff Recommends: Approval, for the following reasons: 1. The requested rezoning is not in agreement with the adopted Land Use Element of the Expansion Area Master Plan (EAMP).

However, the Expansion Area 2a retains approximately the same number of planned acres of CC zoned land necessary for the development of services for the residents in the area.
Tagged Passions:expansion, development, zoning, services, and Development

2.
There have been social, economic and physical changes within the immediate area since the adoption of the EAMP and the 2013 Comprehensive Plan. This is primarily the result of the three zone changes within the Expansion Area 2a that have modified the Land Use Element of the EAMP.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:expansion and strategic

3.
The proposal to increase density within Expansion Area 2a meets the Goals and Objectives of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan, for the following reasons: a. The requested rezoning to EAR-2 and EAR-3 expands housing choices (Theme A, Goal 1) by providing mixed-use

and housing near employment and commercial areas (Theme A, Goal 1.b). b. The proposed rezoning encourages compact, contiguous, and/or mixed-use sustainable development within the Urban Services Area, as guided by market demand, to accommodate future growth needs for safe, affordable and accessible housing to meet the needs of older and/or disadvantaged residents (Theme E, Goal 1.b).

Tagged Passions:market, expansion, strategic, development, zoning, services, employment, Development, commercial, growth, and housing

c.
The proposed rezoning and the corollary plan strive for positive and safe social interactions in neighborhoods, including, but not limited to, neighborhoods that are connected for pedestrians and various modes of transportation (Theme A, Goal 3.b).

No additional detail provided

This recommendation is made subject to approval and certification of PLN-MJDP-19-00009: Blackford Property (Phase 4) prior to forwarding a recommendation to the Urban County Council. This certification must be accomplished within two weeks of the Planning Commission s approval.

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND PROPOSED USE The 2018 Comprehensive Plan, Imagine Lexington, seeks to provide flexible yet focused planning guidance to ensure equitable development of our community s resources and infrastructure that enhances our quality of life, and fosters regional planning and economic development. This will be accomplished while protecting the environment, promoting successful, accessible neighborhoods, and preserving the unique Bluegrass landscape that has made Lexington-Fayette County the Horse Capital of the World.

The petitioner has requested a zone change from an Agricultural Rural (A-R) zone to an Expansion Area Rsidential-1 (EAR- 1) zone for 19.84 net (21.22 gross) and an Expansion Area Rsidential-2 (EAR-2) zone for 19.84 net (19.27 gross) acres for the rear portion of the property located at 2575 Polo Club Blvd. The proposed development consists of 89 detached single family dwelling units and 56 attached single family dwelling units, for an average density of 3.58 dwelling units per gross acre.

The Staff Recommends: Postponement, for the following reasons: 1. The zone change application for the subject property, as proposed, does not address how the petitioner will implement

the goals and objectives, nor the policies of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. Further, the applicant would be best served to review The Placebuilder to address those policies in the most efficient and judicious manner. There are numerous objectives and policies of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan, which have been overlooked. Until the applicant addresses the adopted Comprehensive Plan in a complete manner the staff cannot offer a substantive recommendation.

Zoning Compliance Planning Activity Report

Enforcement A total of 41 new case investigations were initiated in July. Just over 73 of the new cases related to illegal business activity in residential areas and signage issues. Most of the signage issues related to an increase in feather flags along some of Lexington s major street corridors. Forty old cases were resolved, meaning that necessary actions were taken by a property owner or occupant to fix a zoning compliance problem. Annual inspections were completed on 19 properties with conditional uses, and all were determined to be in substantial compliance with conditions imposed by the Board of Adjustment.

Permitting Since January 1, 2012 a Zoning Compliance Permit (ZCP) has been required before a building or premises can be occupied for a specific use or a change in use, with some exceptions for agricultural uses and single family or two-family residences. In July, seven ZCP s were issued, including three for family child care and one for an Airbnb.

Technical assistance was provided to the Division of Building Inspection (at weekly Review Board meetings) in review of 4 appli- cations for new commercial or multi-family building construction, and 18 applications for remodel activity, fit-ups or change in use requests. Permitting staff also devoted much time to issuing official zoning certification letters (10 for the month), responding to numerous citizen inquiries about a diversity of zoning issues, and providing assistance to citizens with getting through the Accela online application process and building eye service.

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) Prepared and submitted Quarterly for the fourth quarter of FY 18-19. Zoninq Compliance Planninq Activity Report Enforcement A total of 41 new case investigations were initiated in July. Just over 73 of the new cases related to illegal business activity in residential areas and signage issues. Most of the signage issues related to an increase in feather flags along some of Lexington's major street corridors. Forty old cases were resolved, meaning that necessary actions were taken by a property owner or occupant to fix a zoning compliance problem. Annual inspections were completed on 19 properties with conditional uses, and all were determined to be in substantial compliance with conditions imposed by the Board of Adjustment.

Permitting Since January 1, 2012 a Zoning Compliance Permit (ZCP) has been required before a building or premises can be occupied for a specific use or a change in use, with some exceptions for agricultural uses and single family or two-family residences. In July, seven ZCP's were issued, including three for family child care and one for an Airbnb.

Technical assistance was provided to the Division of Building Inspection (at weekly Review Board meetings) in review of 4 appli- cations for new commercial or multi-family building construction, and 18 applications for remodel activity, fit-ups or change in use requests. Permitting staff also devoted much time to issuing official zoning certification letters (10 for the month), responding to numerous citizen inquiries about a diversity of zoning issues, and providing assistance to citizens with getting through the Accela online application process and building eye service. Denotes date by which Commission must either approve or disapprove request, unless agreed to a longer time by the applicant. Agenda August 22, 2019 Page 8
