BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Case #:                                          PZ21-0322

 

Applicant/

Owners:                     Gilbert and Angelita Morales

138 E. Green Valley

                                          New Braunfels, TX 78130

The approximately 6,600 square foot (0.15-acre) lot is located on E. Green Valley approximately 50 feet west of its intersection with Melody Lane and 500feet from S. Seguin Ave. The property is currently improved with a manufactured home that was built in 1971.

 

The applicant’s proposed zone change would allow for a subsequent Special Use Permit request to be considered for the intended short term rental of the subject property.

 

The applicant has indicated the zone change request will provide additional options related to challenges with management of the property.

 

Surrounding Zoning and Land Use:

North -                      B-1 / Drainage channel for regional stormwater (City of New Braunfels property)

South -                     Across E. Green Valley, C-O / Stained glass & art gallery

East -                     B-1 / Single-family residence

West -                      B-1 / Single-family residence

 

ISSUE:

The subject property is currently zoned B-1; a zoning district that is intended for the development of single-family, duplex and multifamily residential development.

 

The proposed C-O district is intended to be utilized to create a mixed use district of professional offices and residential use. The applicant is intending to rezone the property to allow for the application and consideration of short term rental. If the proposed rezoning is approved, the existing manufactured home use of the property will become non-conforming which will require the proposed future Special Use Permit to include a manufactured home in addition to its use as a short term rental.

 

The proposed rezoning does not appear to be consistent with actions from Envision New Braunfels.

 

The property is situated in the Walnut Springs Sub-Area, within a Transitional Mixed-Use Corridor and Existing Civic and Market Centers.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

N/A

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:

Denial. The subject property is within an established residential community and the introduction of newly allowed uses to this property could be a disruption and negatively impact surrounding residents.

 

Notification as required by state statute:

Public hearing notices were sent to owners of 16 properties within 200 feet of the request. No responses have been received at this time.
