This case involves a city-initiated large-scale Future Land Use Map Amendment for multiple properties in 14 blocks (41.6 acres).   In most instances, a commercial or mixed-use future land use classification will be changed to a residential future land use classification to recognize existing long-standing residential development patterns in these blocks. Following the FLUMA’s, rezones for most of these sites will be needed to bring the zoning into consistency with the new Future Land Use Classification.  The Rezones will be processed in a separate City-initiated application. Once completed, an estimated 134 residential buildings, mainly single-family dwellings, will become legal conforming uses.  These changes will allow owners to expand or rebuild these buildings.  These changes may also ease the ability of the owners to obtain conventional financing, purchase insurance, and ultimately market and sell these sites as residential properties.
