Veronica Carreon, Transportation and Planning
Transportation and Planning
John and Mari Berend request to rezone the property at 2107 24th St N from District "A" (Single Family Residential) to District "B" (Single Family Attached, Duplex Residential).
BACKGROUND (Brief Summary)
Applicants, John and Mari Berend, own 9 properties in Texas City which cater to low/moderate income families. The applicants seek to construct a duplex on the lot at 2107 24
St North which requires a rezoning to District B (Single Family Attached, Duplex Residential) from its current zoning of District A (Single Family Residential).
Existing conditions and zoning:
The lot at 2107 St North is 207.95 ft x 119.2ft (24,787.64sft)(0.5691 ac) and is vacant. According to records in GCAD, the lot had a structure in place until 2020. The applicants acquired the property by warranty deed in 1996 and have owned it continuously since that time.
The property is zoned District A – Single Family Residential. The adjacent property north of the lot is zoned District B – Single Family Attached, Duplex Residential and has existing duplexes which appear to be in good condition. The property across 24
St N and east of the subject lot is zoned District C – Multi-Family Residential and is developed with existing apartments. The adjacent property to the south is zoned District A – Single Family Residential and is developed with existing single family residences. The rear of the residences are adjacent to the side of the vacant lot. The adjacent property to the west is vacant and currently zoned District A – Single Family Residential.
LAND USE PLAN: The current land use plans show the subject area as an established neighborhood and is adjacent to an “Activity Corridor”. The guidelines for the Activity Corridor include higher density residential development. The existing duplexes and apartments are consistent with this land use.
The street adjacent to the subject property, 24
St N, is paved. Water and sewer are existing and available to the site. There are no known drainage issues in the area.
The subject location is adjacent to existing District B and across from existing District C which appear to be consistent with the Land Use Plan and in good condition. The adjacent residential lots are facing away from the subject location and away from the existing higher density residential development. Due to the lot configuration, the extension of the existing District B to one additional lot is unlikely to create a conflict with the existing single family residential uses. Any potential conflict could be mitigated by the construction of a screening wall or fence between the duplex and the existing single family residential. This would be a requirement if the property were rezoned to District C – Multifamily Residential, as originally requested by the applicants.
The Zoning Commission voted unanimously to recommend the requested zoning change at its regular meeting on January 16, 2024, after holding a Public Hearing upon proper notice mailed to adjacent property owners.There were no objections voiced at the Public Hearing or received in writing.Staff have no objection to the requested rezoning and recommend adding the construction of a screening wall or fence as a condition for the rezoning.
