OWNER/APPLICANT:  Weatherhill Development (Frank Pohl) 

 

BACKGROUND:  

A public hearing was held on this rezoning at the Planning Commission on October 30, 2007.  The Commission recommended approval of the rezoning to the Board of Supervisors. This motion for approval was conditioned upon the applicant revising affordable housing proffers to include the option to offer cash, in the event that the County prefers cash to a housing unit at the time of site plan approval because a potential buyer has not been found. This has become standard proffer language for affordable housing.

 

DISCUSSION/FINDINGS: 

The applicant submitted revised proffers following the Planning Commission meeting, which satisfactorily address the condition included in the Commissionís recommendation of approval for the rezoning to amend proffers.  

 

RECOMMENDATION: 

 

Staff recommends approval of ZMA 07-14 inclusive of the amended proffers dated November 21, 2007 (Attachment I)
