ZAP delays Ace Auto Salvage rezone

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 by Tyler Whitson

The Zoning and Platting Commission voted Tuesday to postpone a rezoning request for property that is currently home to ACE Discount Glass and ACE Auto Salvage, pending a potential Transfer of Development Rights between the applicant and the city on an environmentally sensitive tract of land. If approved, the agreement would likely influence the commission’s decision on whether to rezone that tract to Community Recreation. According to Sherri Sirwaitis of Planning and Development Review, staff was not finished with the TDR review process. She added that Environmental Officer Chuck Lesniak, who was not present, expressed interest in a postponement until the review was completed. “The city has made an offer and I’ve accepted it,” applicant Roy Cavanaugh told commissioners. He added that he’s simply waiting for staff and the legal department to approve the agreement. The ZAP will revisit the item on Nov. 4.
