NEW BUSINESS: Hearing to amend the Zoning Map in regards to property located in a proposed annexation area located in the 4600-5000 blocks of West St. Rd. 46:
David Drake addressed this issue. The hearing was to determine what the zoning would be for this particular area if it were annexed into the town limits of Ellettsville. Mr. Drake explained the zoning as follows.
(A) All the properties currently zoned limited business and general business would become general commercial or C-3 under the town code. This would be the same for all the properties that are zoned general business.
(B) The properties that are currently zoned medium density residential by the county would become R-2 or multi family residential.
(C) All the properties currently zoned low density residential by the county would become R-1 or singly family residential.
Basically this is just a difference in terminology between the county and the town of Ellettsville relative to their definition of the same zoning. There were questions from the audience regarding this matter and the zoning definitions. David Drake made the motion that we recommend to the Town Council that the zoning classifications for the proposed Briargate/Richland Plaza annexation area be as follows.
(A) All those properties currently zoned limited business and general business by Monroe County will become C-3, General Commercial.
(B) All those properties currently zoned medium density residential by Monroe County would become R-2, Multi Family Residential.
(C) All those properties currently zoned low density residential by Monroe County would become R-1, Single Family Residential.
