Recently the City was made aware of a social media post regarding the rezoning of property in Greatwood. The information that was shared is incorrect; there is no undeveloped property being rezoned.
On tonight’s City Council agenda for August 7th at 6:00 p.m. is a City-Initiated rezoning proposal for three areas, which are already developed as either senior independent / assisted living or townhomes, from Interim Standard Single-Family Residential (R-1-I) to Permanent Business Office (B-O) or Townhouse Residential (R-3).
Properties within the Greatwood MUDs were annexed in December 2017 and received Interim Standard Single-Family (R-1-I) zoning at the time of annexation. Permanent zoning is required post-annexation; therefore, the City has initiated the permanent rezoning process for the Greatwood areas. The proposed zoning category for each property is recommended to closely match the existing uses that have been developed over time as either a senior independent / assisted living facility or townhomes in Greatwood. Staff has conducted fieldwork and site visits to all three areas to better understand the current land uses and this information has gone into the Planning Department recommendations for specific zoning categories.
