This request is to rezone .68 acres from the R-2 Zoning District to the R-4 Zoning District to allow for construction of an additional dwelling and creation of one additional lot. A preliminary plat, SUB 2005-00274 has been submitted with this rezoning and a waiver to Section 14-404(A) requirements for lot location to allow access from the lot onto a street or shared drive way is requested.
Rezoning the property from R-2 the R-4 Zoning District is necessary because no additional dwellings can be added to a .68 acre parcel without exceeding the density provisions of the R-2 Zoning District.
The proposed residence and size of the new lot would fit within the context of the existing neighborhood and no negative impacts to adjoining residences have been identified. The proposed rezoning is consistent with the CT 4 Urban General Designation in the Crozet Master Plan.
Staff recommends approval of ZMA 2005-00012 and approval of the waiver to Section 14 to rezone .68 acres from R-2 to R-4 zoning.
