Central Northeast Zoning Remapping
The Central Northeast District Plan, adopted by PCPC on March 18, 2014, recommends 18 remappings overall: 14 corrective zoning remappings and 4 zoning remappings to advance the plan.
Corrective Zoning matches zoning with existing land use. Many of these remappings involve recent development that went to the zoning Board of Adjustment for variances rather than rezoning the property and are comprised of a variety of Industrial, Commercial and Residential zoning classifications. Several corrective remappings involve single-family areas that are zoned for multi-family and residential areas that are zoned commercial.
Zoning to Advance the Plan encourages new development and land uses envisioned by the community through the district planning process. These recommendations are based on the future land use map, not the land use that exists today. These remappings revolve around the focus areas: accommodating increased demand for housing along transit served corridors, strengthening a town center streetscape while introducing a complementary mix of uses, allowing more intensive commercial and mixed use reinvestment to enable the regional town center to adopt to changing lifestyles, commuting patterns, and business practices, and capitalizing on underutilized sites to add new parking resources and enable growth of the town center.
So far two corrective zoning recommendations have been completed. The commercial center at and around the intersection of Dungan Road and Rhawn Street (#13) was rezoned from Industrial I-1 and I-2 to Commercial CA-1. A housing development at the intersection just north of the intersection of Tabor Lane and Napfle Street (#5) zoned Industrial was rezoned to Residential RSA-3.
In addition, two other corrective zoning re-mappings will be completed during the first quarter of 2015. Tyson Avenue from Algon Avenue to Whitaker Avenue (#4) will be rezoned from Multi-family Residential RM-1 to Single-Family Residential RSA-5. Properties along and around Rising Sun Avenue near Martins Mill (#8) will be rezoned from Residential Single Family RSA-3 and Commercial Mixed-use CMX-1 to Residential Multi-family RM-1.
The public process for zoning map revisions involve both the PCPC and City Council to host public hearings to discuss the zoning legislation. After the bill is enacted into law with the mayor’s signature, the PCPC will change the official City zoning maps to reflect the new revisions.
