Requested Action:
It is requested that the Planning & Zoning Board conduct a public hearing to consider a change of zoning classification from AU (Agricultural Residential) to BU-2 (Retail, Warehousing, and Wholesale Commercial).
Summary Explanation and Background:

Possible incompatibilities are due to the intensive nature of commercial activities permitted by the BU-2 classification, including noise, light, traffic and other potential nuisances. BU-2 allows for contractor's offices, plants and storage yards. Storage yards must be enclosed with a six-foot wall, louvered fence or chain-link fence.

Parcels in the surrounding area range from 0.43 acres to 11.15 acres. The parcel to the north is a motel on 2.98 acres zoned BU-2.

The parcel to the south is vacant commercial land zoned BU-1 (General Retail Commercial) on 5.54-acres. Across U.S. Highway 1 is a retail store zoned BU-1 on 1.48 acres.

The Board may wish to consider if the request is consistent and compatible with the surrounding area.
