06 Nov Warnock Commons 2435 S 500 E
UPDATE: The City Council approved the rezone (see old news below) on August 16, 2022. The land was sold to Altus Development Group, which is now proposing this townhome development. They are requesting a Planned Development to construct 20 for-sale townhomes on the parcel 2435 S 500 East. The city provided us with a notice of the project. Here is the applicant’s description of what they are proposing.
I spoke to the developer about what our concerns had been concerning the pollution from the freeway. He told me he was planning to put a big row of fast-growing trees closely planted on the north side, and limit, or not have, any windows that opened on that side. He does not like the idea of skylights for extra light, because they always seem to leak. Here are the plans provided by the developer.
This was on the SHCC Land Use and Zoning Committee Monday, November 14. There is still time to provide comments that I will send along with my letter to the Planning Commission. Use this form.
OLD NEWS: The rezone from R1/7000 to RMG-35 was approved by the Planning Commission on January 26, and was on the City Council agenda for a public hearing on Tuesday, August 9 at 7:00 pm. Here is a link to that staff report. And here is the letter from SHCC. The original request was to rezone a parcel from R-1-7,000 Residential to RMF-35. To facilitate this zoning change the Applicant has also requested an amendment of the General Plan from Low-Density Residential (5-10 dwelling units per acre) to Medium Density Residential (8-20 dwelling units per acre). The property owner intends to construct eighteen (18) townhome units on the property. General Plan and Zoning Map amendment requests require a recommendation from the Planning Commission and final approval from the City Council. I have attached information submitted by the applicant relating to the project to facilitate your review. Read that information here:
