Agenda Item Summary:
This item was continued from the February 8, 2018 Planning Commission meeting to allow staff to review a Preliminary Geotechnical Observations letter from American Engineering Testing, Inc. submitted on February 1, 2018. The letter provides a surface observation of the subject property and does not include site specific soil boring data, soil sample analysis or subsequent specific construction recommendations. During the review of Rezone 17RZ025, the Planning Commission and City Council voiced specific concerns with soil stability and the potential impact on adjacent properties as a result of developing this site. Without site soils data, the impact of the development cannot be determined. As such, staff cannot support this Rezoning request. The applicant has submitted a Rezoning request to change the zoning designation from Park Forest District to Low Density Residential District for a parcel of land approximately 9.85 acres in size. The Future Land Use Plan identifies the appropriate use of the property as Forest Conservation District. The property is located southwest of the intersection of Indiana Street and Maple Avenue. Currently, the property is void of structural development.
