The subject property consists of 78.93 acres, out of a larger 92.28 acre parent tract. The vacant site lies south of the intersection of the IH 35 and Kohlenberg Road, approximately 1,700 feet northeast of the Wal-Mart Distribution Center. The applicant is proposing a rezoning of the subject property from "APD" Agricultural/Pre-Development District to "ZH-A" Zero Lot Line Home District. The remaining 13 acres of the parent tract would remain its current zoning.

The applicants have submitted no specific plans for development at this time. ZH-A would allow for the development of a single family subdivision with lots that are a minimum of forty feet wide and 100 feet deep, with a minimum lot area of 4,000 square feet. Zero-lot line homes (a.k.a. patio homes/garden homes) with a 10-foot setback on one side/zero on the other, are allowed in ZH-A, as well as are homes with typical 5-foot side setbacks on both sides. The developer must determine at time of platting which setbacks or home type mix are to be developed.
