PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION
Meeting Date: 07/20/2021  
Subject:    Consider - Zoning Map Amendment from SF2 and NSC to GC
Prepared for: Martin Scribner
Prepared by: Nai Mongiello, Planning and Development Services

Information
ITEM
Consider making a recommendation and preparing a report concerning a proposed amendment to the official zoning map to rezone approximately 4.5 acres generally located north of Cedar Bayou Road and east and west of Fanestiel Road from a Mixed residential at low to medium densities (SF2) zoning district and Neighborhood serving commercial (NSC) zoning district to a General commercial (GC) zoning district.
PREFACE

The proposed zone change is generally compatible with the FLUP map which recommends low-medium density residential and commercial corridor. The subject properties, legally described as Tracts 39A, 43A, 43B, 43A-1, 43B-1, 44A-1, 44B-1, 44A, 44B, 47C & 47G in the JW Singleton Survey, Abstract No. 709, Harris County, Texas, are within or adjacent to the State Highway 146 (SH 146) Corridor. The Baytown 2025 Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Plan (FLUP) encourages a transition in the SH 146 Corridor that “would provide an opportunity to mix a variety of land uses including commercial office and retail as well as medium to high-density residential.”

This area of the City was annexed in 1954 and the existing land use throughout this area is a mixture of residential and commercial. This area has been transitioning for years. If approved, the zone change would: further facilitate the transitioning between residential and highway-oriented commercial near and within the SH 146 Corridor; and allow for more development opportunities that are compatible and consistent with this area and with the goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan.

The supporting documentation is attached for your review.
