At their meeting on July 13 the Planning and Zoning Commission approved an amendment to the Official Zoning Map for 4.48 acres from R-1, Single Family Residential District to C-1, Neighborhood Commercial District. The rezoning was requested by a property owner at 6995 NW 100th Street. The property is located at the southeast corner of NW 100th Street and NW 70th Avenue.
The Council initiated a rezoning of the property in 2011 from R-1 to C-2. However, the request was denied. The Commission recommended at that time that the applicant pursue a more restrictive commercial zoning.
Recent developments along the NW 100th Street corridor (such as the construction of the new Johnston High School) and proposed improvements to NW 100th and NW 70th Avenue gave the Commission cause to reconsider the rezoning request.
