Consider an ordinance amending the City of Baytown's official zoning map to rezone approximately 4.6 acres located at 705 Lanier Drive, legally described as TR 1, TR 1B & TR 12R-1, Abstract 66, W Scott & TR 57C, Abstract 840. H Whiting Abstract 842, H Whiting, Harris County, Texas, from an Open Space/Recreation (OR) Zoning District to a General Commercial (GC) Zoning District.

The City is completely rebuilding the Animal Shelter and Adoption Center located along SH 146 between Decker Drive (Spur 330) and Garth Road.  With the facility’s reconstruction and in following best practices for planning and zoning, the applicant is seeking to rezone a portion of the property from OR to GC.  This aligns with the Future Land Use Plan (FLUP) allowing for commercial zoning along this corridor.

The remainder of the property surrounding the Animal Shelter and Adoption Center was not included in the rezoning since it is located either in the Goose Creek Floodway, the floodplain, or it is a part of the City of Baytown's trail system connecting to Emmett Hutto.

The Planning and Zoning Commission Report is attached for your review.

Planning and Zoning Commission recommends approval.
