BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:
Case No.: PZ-18-045

Council District:|910|
Applicant: Sandy Schuetz Neuse (Lot 2)

The subject property consists of Lot 2 (10.39 acres) and Lot 3 (11.53 acres), Country Meadows Subdivision, situated between Conway Castle Drive and Klein Road on the southwest side of FM 725. The front 350 feet of the subject property (adjacent to FM 725) is zoned "R-1" Single Family District and the remainder of the property (abutting Dove Crossing Subdivision) is zoned "APD" Agricultural/Pre-Development District.

The applicants are proposing C-1A for the approximately 325-foot deep front of the tract. They originally requested C-1B, but have since revised their application to the less intense C-1A. And, they are requesting the least intense C-O for the approximately 800-foot deep remaining rear of the property where it abuts residential.

The tract two lots to the south (2416 FM 725) was rezoned in 2016 from R-1 and APD to C-1B with an SUP for a self-storage facility. The tract three lots to the south (2466 FM 725) was also subject to a rezoning request in 2016 from R-1 and APD to C-1B with an SUP for an outdoor wedding/special event venue and short term rental; that case was withdrawn after the Planning Commission recommended denial.
