PUBLIC HEARINGS AND ACTION ITEMS

Regular Agenda Items

Z-005-19

Application of Tommy Cunningham for a zoning change request from “C-2” Commercial to “M-1” Industrial District located on an approximately 0.6639 acre tract of land situated in the Parkdale Gardens Addition, Lot 1R, Block 16, Tarrant County, Texas and locally known as 2240 Carson Street.

Staff presented and clarified the request.

Ms. Batchelor advised the Commission that there was a City initiated rezone in 1996 changing this property from M-2 Heavy Industrial to C-2 Commercial due to the CLUP adopted February 13, 1995.

The legal notice regarding the public hearing was published in the June 7, 2019 Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Written notice of the variance request was mailed to fourteen (14) property owners within 200' of the site on June 12, 2019. Staff received two (2) in favor or without objection, none (0) opposed, and none (0) returned to sender.

Acting Chair Teague asked the applicant to come to the podium.

Tommy Cunningham, 6809 Baker Boulevard, said he was here to answer any questions. He has been the owner of property for 21 years. This is a seven-tenant unit structure (2232, 2236, 2240, 2244, 2248, 2252 and 2256 Carson). Mr. Cunningham said he likes to lease to small business owners and has recently had trouble leasing to tenants that meet the zoning requirements. Mr. Cunningham said this was built for contractor offices with truck parking.

Ms. Batchelor informed the Commission no certificates of occupancy for contractor’s office since 2006 when the zoning ordinance matrix was rewritten from M-1 Industrial to C-2 commercial which then prevents a contractor’s office with garage.

Acting Chair Teague thanked Mr. Cunningham for being in Haltom City and advised that the Commission is advisory to City Council, they ultimately make the decision to approve or deny.

Commission reviewed Zoning Matrix comparison of C-2 and M-1 uses. Commissioner Alcon asked about rezoning to C-3 from C-2 instead of going for M-1.

Acting Chair Teague said it appeared none of the contractor uses are allowed by right.

Ms. Batchelor explained a contractor's office (w/shop and garage) requires Conditional Use Permit in the C-3 commercial district. Contractor: plumbing/electrical/heating/air conditioning sales and Contractor: plumbing/electrical/heating/air conditioning sales and service are permitted in C-3 district.

Ms. Batchelor said a C-3 zoning would maintain CLUP corridor of Retail, Office, Service Corridor. Mr. Cunningham stated he doesn't want the auto uses allowed in M-1 zoning.

Mr. Cunningham decided to withdraw his application for rezone from C-2 to M-1 and will resubmit an application for rezone from C-2 to C-3 and application for Conditional Use Permit for Contractor's office (w/shop and garage).

Acting Chair Teague opened the Public Hearing

No public hearing was called due to applicant withdrawing his request.

Acting Chair Teague closed the Public Hearing Discussion by the Commission

ACTION BY THE COMMISSION

Acting Chair Teague stated there would not be a motion required for this case due to applicant withdrawing their rezone request.

Z-006-19

Application of Karen Mitchell, Mitchell Planning Group, LLC, on behalf of Mark Talley for a zoning change request from “M-1” Industrial to “PD-M-1” Planned Development Industrial located on an approximately 3.9502 acre tract of land situation in Green B. Stanley Survey Abstract 1378, Tract 5A02, Tarrant County, Texas, locally known as 4233 Janada Street.

Staff presented and clarified the request.

The legal notice regarding the public hearing was published in the June 7, 2019 Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Written notice of the variance request was mailed to eight (8) property owners within 200' of the site on June 12, 2019. Staff received none (0) in favor or without objection, none (0) opposed, and one

(1) returned to sender.

Acting Chair Teague asked the applicant to come to the podium.

Craig Farmer, Mitchell Planning Group, said AER precision is the proposed tenant. This is an 800- employee company that generates $800 million a year in revenue. The corporate office is located in Carrollton, Texas. They intend to relocate their Fort Worth location to this property. The average salary will be $60,000 a year.

Mr. Farmer said they recognized M-2 Heavy Industrial zoning might not be the appropriate request, so they are instead going with a Planned Development “PD”. The PD is adding three new definitions that will apply to this property.

Mr. Farmer said their plan would be updated to include 18’ X 18’ no parking areas at the points of ingress/egress.

Mr. Farmer said they would look at the dumpster location and see if they could relocate to keep it from encroaching the parking and avoid the overhead power lines.

Mr. Farmer said they use company owned trucks that come and go roughly two times a day for a total of four trips. The layout of the parking lot would have trucks enter from south approach and exit at north approach and the north/last bay door will be used for delivery and shipping.

Ms. Batchelor added metal salvage storage will be inside the building.

Acting Chair Teague opened the Public Hearing to those desiring to speak (8:10 PM)

No one for or against.

Acting Chair Teague closed the Public Hearing (8:10PM) Discussion by the Commission

No further discussion by the Commission.
