|The property owner is requesting a zone change from PAD (Planned Area Development- Tarantini Commerce Center) to R-3 (Multi-Family Residential).
This project is located at the southeast corner of W. Val Vista Boulevard and N. Thornton Road and consists of approximately 13.91 acres of land. The property is currently undeveloped.
As required by the General Plan, staff has evaluated whether the proposed zoning is compatible and appropriate with the surrounding land uses. Staff finds that it is compatible with the adjacent single-family neighborhood and commercial corner to the west with the current City development standards. However, staff finds that the existing PAD, with the proposed industrial use to the south and the proposed commercial auto park to the west may create land use conflicts.
Staff has recommended the following Conditions of Record be imposed on the proposed R-3 zone area to improve compatibility between the multi-family development and the adjacent car dealership to the east and light industrial land use to the south:
- That a minimum 15 foot landscaped setback be provided along the southern and eastern boundary where adjacent to a non-residential zone district or use; Said landscape buffer shall contain:
A. 1 tree per 30 feet and:
B. An 8 foot high block wall
