The agenda for the June 16 meeting of the City Planning Commission has a few items of local interest:
- ORD. 2014-133 To authorize the special use of the property known as 3126 N Street for the purpose of a parking area, upon certain terms and conditions.
The subject property is a 26,582 square foot corner lot, which is situated on the northeast side of the intersection of N and North 31st Streets. Situated on the property is a 71 space parking area that currently serves the Thirty First Street Baptist Church. The applicant proposes to provide parking for the proposed school located across the intersection at 3015 N Street. The subject property is located in the R-6 Single-Family Attached Residential zoning district, which only allows parking areas as an accessory use serving principal permitted uses. The parking area currently serves a church use that is located on the adjacent property. The applicant would like the parking area to serve a proposed school located across the intersection from the parking area. The parking area serving a use not located on the subject property constitutes the parking area as a principal use, which is not permitted in the R-6 zoning district. Therefore, the applicant has requested a special use permit.
- UDC No. 2014-21 Final Location, Character and Extent review of a new building on the site of the Martin Luther King School, to contain a pre-kindergarten program, 1000 Mosby Street
The new building will be single story with an area of 22,097 gsf building to accommodate 260 students in pre-school ages 3 through 5.
