ZAP approves ‘unnecessary’ conditional overlay

Monday, March 11, 2019 by Alyx Wilson

Staffers’ recommendation was quickly usurped in a rezoning case that was pulled for discussion at the March 5 Zoning and Platting Commission meeting. Owners of the two-lot property at 2503 Westlake Dr. were seeking a rezoning from a Lake Austin Residence and Family Residence zoning to Urban Family Residence zoning with a conditional overlay limiting the property to seven units. Staff members had no objection to the conditional overlay, but did not find it necessary to include it in the official recommendation because site constraints and Urban Family Residence district regulations would likely not allow for the construction of more than seven units. Commissioner Jim Duncan made the motion to approve staff’s recommendation along with the conditional overlay anyway, which was seconded by Commissioner Ana Aguirre. The motion passed unanimously.
