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.
