Proposed re-zoning

In early 2019, Hinton Avenue United Methodist Church submitted a rezoning petition for the Planning Commission's regular docket for Tuesday, May 14, 2019. The rezoning petition proposed a change in zoning from the existing R-1S (low-density residential, small lot) to NCC (Neighborhood Commercial Corridor Mixed Use) subject to proffered development conditions. The stated purpose of the rezoning was to allow construction of a multifamily building containing up to 15 units (for a total density of 19.7 DUA). Within the current R-1S zoning district, multifamily dwellings are not permitted. The application was deferred until the June 2019 Planning Commission meeting.[2]
