CU-ZMA-1-2020 Application from Dama and Kevin Chopelas requesting the rezoning of 1.04 acres of land from Residential-8 (R-8) to Conditional Use

General Business (CU-GB) to construct a shop and operate a sign/design business. The subject property is located at 1361 South Aspen Street (Parcel ID 22141).
Tagged Passions:business, streets, zoning, and property

Laura Elam addressed the board noting the following:

SITE AND AREA DESCRIPTION

The subject property is a 1.13 acre site located at 1361 South Aspen Street on the east side of South Aspen Street between Brady Branch Trail and

Jonas Drive. (Parcel ID 22141).
Tagged Passions:streets, trails, and property

The subject property and adjoining properties located along South Aspen Street are zoned R-8. Properties to the north are zoned R-15. Properties

located to the south at the intersection of South Aspen Street and Jonas Drive are zoned Neighborhood Business (N-B).
Tagged Passions:business, streets, zoning, property, and neighborhood

The subject property is developed with a single family home. A duplex is located on the adjoining lot immediately to the south. A bed and breakfast

inn and a single family home are located further to south. A convenience store and an office are located at the intersection of South Aspen Street and Jonas Drive. Otherwise, the area is predominantly devoted to single-family homes.
Tagged Passions:streets, hotel, property, and commercial

BACKGROUND

The applicants operate a sign shop in Vale and recently relocated the business to a leased location in Lincolnton. However, the fire marshal could

not approve the opening of the business in the new location due to fire code violations.
Tagged Passions:business, leasing, and building codes

The applicants understanding is that the owner of the leased location does not plan to resolve the outstanding code violations and as a result, they

moved the business back to the former location in Vale.
Tagged Passions:business and leasing

Because the applicants are still interested in relocating to Lincolnton, they then decided to pursue relocation of the sign business to the site of

their recently purchased home on South Aspen Street. They would like to construct a new detached building for the sign shop in the area of the lot where the existing garage is located.
Tagged Passions:Homebuilder, business, streets, and purchasing

Staff and the applicants discussed the feasibility of conducting the sign business as a home occupation but the applicants wish to operate the sign

shop in a building, zoning regulations do not allow use of an accessory building for a home occupation.
Tagged Passions:Homebuilder, regulation, business, and zoning

Rezoning to a commercial zoning district is required to allow the business to be located in a building separate from the home.

Tagged Passions:Homebuilder, business, zoning, and commercial

NOTE: Rezoning of the home to a commercial district will make it a legal, non-conforming use.

Tagged Passions:legal, zoning, and commercial

PROPOSED USE AND SITE PLAN

The applicant requests conditional use rezoning in order to allow construction of an approximately 1,800 square foot sign shop in the area where the

existing garage is now. The existing garage would be removed.
Tagged Passions:construction and zoning

The shop would be accessed through the existing driveway to South Aspen Street and parking for the shop would be provided in the existing parking

area. Gravel parking is permitted provided the required use does not require more than 15 parking spaces.
Tagged Passions:streets and parking

DESCRIPTION OF CONDITIONAL USE DISTRICT REZONING PROCESS

Tagged Passions:zoning

Conditional use rezoning is a process whereby a conditional use permit and a rezoning are acted upon simultaneously. The use that is proposed in the

conditional use permit portion of the process must be the use constructed on the property after it is rezoned. Unlike a standard zoning in which all the uses permitted in the district are potentially allowed on the rezoned site, a conditional use rezoning limits the potential use of the property. In this case, the applicant proposes to limit the use of the property to the existing single family home and a new 1,800 square foot sign shop.
Tagged Passions:zoning and property

COMPLIANCE WITH WATER SUPPLY WATERSHED

Tagged Passions:utility, Utility, water, watershed, and compliance

The site is located in the water supply watershed protected area. Compliance with the water supply watershed standards is required if more than an

acre is disturbed.
Tagged Passions:utility, Utility, water, watershed, and compliance

COMPLIANCE WITH CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Tagged Passions:compliance

meets the requirements of this section with the following exceptions:
Tagged Passions:UDO

Twenty foot side yard setbacks are required, Twenty foot screening buffer required adjoining residential zoning, and

Tagged Passions:zoning

Total impervious cover needs to be provided and any applicable watershed requirements must be met.

LAND USE PLAN

The Lincolnton Land Use Plan designates properties located along this portion of South Aspen Street as a Traditional Single Family area and the

intersection of South Aspen Street and Jonas Drive as a Neighborhood Business area.
Tagged Passions:business, streets, and neighborhood

The Plan notes that Traditional Single Family areas consist of single family uses on smaller to medium sized lots in older established portions of

the community that should be protected from encroachment of incompatible business and industrial development. This request proposes rezoning from single family residential to conditional General Business. Therefore, the requested rezoning is not consistent with the Land Use Plan.
Tagged Passions:business, development, industrial, zoning, Development, and encroachment

STAFF REVIEW COMMITTEE

The Staff Review Committee had the following comments:

permitted use.
Tagged Passions:ordinance, business, development, Development, and UDO

Proposed Consistency and Reasonableness Statement:

The Lincolnton Land Use Plan does not address sign shops.

Approval of the amendment is reasonable and in the public interest in that it would allow for potential additional commercial development in Downtown

Lincolnton. The prohibition against location within the Downtown Fire District will promote public safety and the prohibition against outdoor storage or activities will promote preservation of the character of Downtown Lincolnton.
