Council Meeting Highlights: March 7, 2022
This public hearing is being held to consider a formal rezoning proposal for 3180 Travers Avenue to fix a historical surveying error.
A small part of the lot was zoned for Marine Use sometime in the past, while the majority is zoned single-family residential. Private residential lands are generally not zoned Marine Use; this typically only applies to public lands. The rezoning would consolidate the property under a single single-family residential designation.
The proposed rezoning would also allow the waterfront boundary to be measured from the current, accurate natural boundary.
Once the property is rezoned to align with current surveys, a new single-family home that conforms to all zoning requirements is planned for the site. The foreshore area will remain undisturbed.
In 2019, Council defeated a development proposal for 14 single-family and duplex units at 6404 Wellington Avenue and 6407 & 6403 Nelson Avenue. Since that time, the Horseshoe Bay Local Area Plan has been completed, and half of this site has been rezoned to allow for infill housing. The other half is currently zoned for places of worship but has not been used for that purpose for many years.
This public hearing is being held to consider a new proposal for this site, which is for ten single-family units.
Council received input from the public and closed the public hearings.
The next regular Council meeting will take place on March 28, 2022.
