PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

1.                   The property shall be encumbered for annexation, per the requirements of the Planning & Zoning Department.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

2.                   Staff recommends annexation of the subject property within the City limits and assignment of a land use of Medium Density Residential and a zoning of R-1B Single Family Residential Dwelling.

INFORMATION:

3.                   Revised plans must be submitted within sixty (60) days of this review.  Revised plans submitted after the allotted time frame will require a new application including payment of additional fees.

4.                   All submitted plans must be folded at the time of submittal.  Rolled plans will not be accepted.

5.                   Section 3.4.3.C.2.a of the Land Development Code contains 16 items that must be addressed in the report to City Council regarding annexation, land use amendment and rezoning.  Staff's analysis has resulted in the following responses.  The applicant should provide written comments and support materials if the below comments are not considered correct/accurate by the applicant.

5.1.       The proposed change is contrary to the established land use pattern.  The proposed change is not contrary to the established land use pattern because the existing land use pattern on 3 of 4 sides of the subject property is single family detached dwellings on platted lots in a subdivision - the same as is being proposed.

5.2.       The proposed change would create an isolated district unrelated to adjacent and nearby districts.  The proposed change would not create an isolated district if Medium Density Residential land use and R-1B Single Family Residential Dwelling zoning are assigned as recommended by staff because this is the same land use and zoning designations as currently exist on 3 of 4 sides of the subject property.

5.3.       The proposed change would materially alter the population density population and thereby increase or overtax the load on public facilities such as schools, utilities, streets, etc.  No comments have been received from the Lines Division, the Public Works Department, the school district, the Police Department nor Fire Safety Department regarding an overtaxing of the public facilities.

5.4.       Existing district boundaries are illogically drawn in relation to existing conditions on the property proposed for a change.  Existing district boundaries are illogically drawn for the desired purpose of a single family detached residential platted lot subdivision that receives City water and sewer services and is inside the City limits because the property is not currently within the City limits.

5.5.       The proposed change would be contrary to the land use plan and would have an adverse effect on the Comprehensive Plan.  The proposed annexation and assignment of Medium Density Residential and R-1B Single Family Residential Dwelling to the subject property would not have an adverse effect on the land use plan and Comprehensive Plan.  Annexation and assignment of land use and zoning designations would require an amendment of the Comprehensive Plan

5.6.       Changed or changing conditions make the passage of the proposed amendment necessary.  The changing condition which requires the proposed amendment is the property owner's wish that the subject property be within the corporate boundaries of the City of St. Cloud so that the property may enjoy all the benefits and rights thereof.

5.7.       The proposed change will adversely influence living conditions in the neighborhood.  No evidence to this effect has been presented to staff, nor does staff reasonably expect any adverse effect to the adjacent neighborhood by the proposed amendment.

5.8.       The proposed change will create or excessively increase traffic congestion or otherwise affect public safety.  No evidence of such has been presented to staff, nor does staff reasonably expect traffic congestion to result from the proposed amendment.

5.9.       The proposed change will create a drainage problem.  Current City regulations and codes require drainage to be handled properly, therefore the proposed change will not create a drainage problem.

Page 14, DRC Minutes – 02/20/03

 

 

5.10.    The proposed change will seriously reduce light and air to adjacent areas.  The maximum building height and building density per acre limits will be the same for the subject property as existing on 3 of 4 sides of the subject property, therefore the proposed change will not seriously reduce light and air to adjacent areas.

5.11.    The proposed change will adversely affect property values in the adjacent area.  Staff does not reasonably expect this to happen based upon the proposed changes.

5.12.    The proposed change will be a deterrent to the improvement or development of adjacent property in accordance with existing regulations.  Staff does not reasonably expect any off-site impacts which would result in a deterrent to improve or develop adjacent property to the subject property.

5.13.    The proposed change will constitute a grant of special privilege to an individual owner as contrasted with the public welfare.  Annexation, assignment of a land use of Medium Density Residential, assignment of a zoning of R-1B Single Family Dwelling, and approval of those

5.14.    actions on the subject property surrounded on 3 of 4 sides by the same land use and zoning designations does not constitute the granting of a special privilege to anyone.

5.15.    There are substantial reasons why a reasonable use of property cannot be accomplished under existing zoning.  Existing zoning is County zoning outside of the City limits, therefore the reasons why reasonable use of the property cannot be accomplished under existing zoning involve access to City water and sewer services, the costs of those services, and the enjoyment of rights and privileges of being within the corporate City limits of the City of St. Cloud.

5.16.    Whether the change suggested is out of scale with the needs of the neighborhood or the City.  The subject property is 5 acres of land which forms a salient into the current City boundaries, and the addition of 5 acres and approximately 14 single family homes does not constitute a proposed change which is out of scale with the neighborhood or City.

5.17.    It is impossible to find other adequate site in the City for the proposed use in districts already zoned for such use.  The proposed annexation is for City water and sewer service to serve single family detached dwellings in a residential platted lot subdivision with a land use designation of Medium Density Residential and R-1B Single Family Residential Dwelling.  The applicant owns the subject property and owns adjacent and abutting property on 3 of 4 sides of the subject property.  Said adjacent and abutting property already has City water and sewer service, has a land use designation of Medium Density Residential and a zoning of R-1B Single Family Residential Dwelling.  Therefore it would illogical to require the applicant locate the proposed development on another piece of property elsewhere within the current City boundaries.
