Chair Adam asked the applicant to come to the podium.

Michael Hayworth gave a presentation on the request. Mr. Hayworth stated that originally they looked at this property as an office but have since changed their minds and decided to keep it residential. He noted his business does do remodels. He noted a mortgage company asked to verify that they would be able to rebuild the home if it is destroyed and was told he could not without permission from the Board. The applicant did not feel this was spot zoning.

Commissioner Hilliard asked if the CLUP made this a non-conforming use. Ms. Batchelor noted this has been this way for a long time.

Commissioner Hilliard asked if this use could continue. Ms. Batchelor stated they could.

Vice Chair Tidwell asked if the mortgage was for commercial. Mr. Hayworth stated originally it was for commercial but over time wanted to convert it to residential.

Vice Chair Tidwell asked if it burned down would they want to put a residence back on

the property. Mr. Hayworth stated he would.

Commissioner Hilliard asked what the benefit of a residential mortgage. Mr. Hayworth said he would be able to get a better interest rate.

D.J. Johnson and Brad Johnson, 2800 & 2900 Carson St., were represented by James Pliska. Mr. Pliska stated they had concerns with the request. Mr. Pliska said this was not in conformance with the CLUP. Mr. Pliska also stated this is a classic example of spot zoning. Mr. Pliska also stated with this rezone would put the BISD building into nonconformance along with increasing setback for the Johnson’s property.

Mr. Hayworth stated cities around the metroplex were working to preserve historic homes and that is what he is desiring to do. Mr. Hayworth is asking to get a zoning so he does not have to seek permission to rebuild.

Chair Adam opened the Public Hearing to those desiring to speak.

Serea Kinsley, on behalf of Kevin Karami owner of 6019 McCullar, stated he was in opposition to this request.

Chair Adam closed the Public Hearing. Discussion by the Commission

Vice Chair Tidwell stated he was interested in the request and there has to be a way to accomplish this request but not through the rezoning process.

Commissioner Bowman said they could have the property designated as a historical home.

Commissioner Hilliard stated she agreed the impact on neighboring properties would be great.

ACTION BY THE COMMISSION

Vice Chair Tidwell made the motion, seconded by Commissioner Bowman to deny the application of Michael Hayworth for a Zoning Change request from “M-1” Industrial District to “SF-1” Single Family Residential District located on Tract 11F, 11 and 11B01B of the George Akers Survey Abstract 30.
