February 2nd, 2021 at 7:00pm a Zoning Change, Use Permit, & Waiver of Development Standards application will be heard by the county. This is regarding a zoning change to reclassify 8.6 acres on Rainbow between Erie & Levi.
How’s It Zoned Now? R-E, Rural Estates, Residential
The land is currently Zoned R-E (Rural Estates Residential – This zoning allows for only 1 home per 1/2 acre), RUD (Residential Urban Density). This allows for 14 dwelling units on each acre, P-C (Planned Community Overlay District).
“30.40.060 – Purpose of R-E, Rural Estates, Residential District.
This district is established for areas particularly suited for low density residential uses and to the raising of crops and of a limited number of animals for noncommercial purposes. See Table 30.56-2A for additional design standards.“
What are they requesting? RUD (Residential Urban Density) – Dense housing that may negatively impact your home’s value.
The proposed changes are to replace the 1 home per half-acre zoning with zoning allowing 14 dwelling units per acre! That’s a huge difference in the proposed traffic, noise, & general density of our neighborhood. The Residential Rural Estates will become RUD (Residential Urban Density), and MORE RUD (Residential Urban Density), P-C (Planned Community Overlay District). More changes proposed are a USE PERMIT for an attached townhouse development, A WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the setbacks for residential units to the street.
“30.40.120 – Purpose of RUD, Residential Urban Density District.
This district is established to provide for the development of compact single-family residential development and to prohibit the development of incompatible uses that are detrimental to the residential environment.“
