Developer withdraws request for rezoning at National and Sunshine


Developers of a proposed project at the corner of National and Sunshine have withdrawn their request for the rezoning of the property. According to representatives from BK&M, the developers of the project, they intend to apply for a rezoning to a Planned Development in the future. The proposal was to rezone property generally located at 1739, 1745 and 1755 S. National Avenue, 1138 E. University Street and 1111, 1119, 1133 and 1141 E. Sunshine Street from single-family residential district to general retail district, and to establish a new conditional overlay district No. 220. 

A planned development differs from rezoning to a conventional zoning district because a site plan, and accompanying set of development standards, are used to direct development of the property. During the weeks following application deadline, City staff does an in-depth evaluation of the request, evaluating the request based on the impact on the community as a whole, and not on the special interests of the property owner, and how well the application addresses policies from the comprehensive plan and/or City ordinances. Based upon this evaluation, staff prepares a report and recommendation to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
