City Council held a public hearing on June 27, 2022 and unanimously approved the first reading of the ordinance for the applicant’s requested rezoning (7-0-0).

 

The 6.2-acre subject property is located approximately 3,000 feet north of the intersection of FM 306 (a principal arterial) and Oak Knot Drive (a minor collector). The property consists of a portion of a 41.3 acre unplatted tract, the majority of which lies outside the city limits. The subject property has approximately 930 feet of frontage along FM 306 and is located approximately 200 feet from the terminus of the city limits. The applicant intends to develop the parking lot for an adjacent market (Granzin’s Meat Market) on the vacant property.

 

Surrounding Zoning and Land Use:

North - C-1B / NB Parkway Storage (rv/vehicle storage)

South -R-1 / Undeveloped

East - Outside City Limits / Undeveloped

West - Across FM 306, R-1 / Undeveloped

 

ISSUE:

The undeveloped property is zoned R-1 which allows for the development of detached single-family residences on minimum 6,600 square foot lots. The proposed C-1B district would allow for a broad range of office and retail uses most appropriately located at the intersection of major collectors or thoroughfares, or along freeways.

 

The proposed rezoning is consistent with the following actions from Envision New Braunfels:

                     Action 1.3 Encourage balanced and fiscally responsible land use patterns.

                     Action 3.1 Plan for healthy jobs/housing balance

                     Action 3.3 Balance commercial centers with stable neighborhoods.

                     Action 3.6 Pro actively provide a regulatory framework that remains business and resident friendly.

Future Land Use: The property lies within the Hoffman Lane Sub Area near Existing Market, Outdoor Recreation, Education and Civic Centers and is along a Transitional Mixed-Use Corridor.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

N/A

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:

Approval. The C-1B, General Business District is intended to provide for a variety of commercial uses that are accessible by high-capacity roadways.

 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on June 7, 2022 and recommended approval (9-0).

 

Mailed notification as required by state statute:

Public hearing notices were sent to owners of 7 properties within 200 feet of the request. The City has received one response (representing two properties) in favor from owners of property within the notification area.
