Rezoning: 2103 River Road Rezone

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

UPDATE: On May 17th, 2021 City Council adopted the ordinance to rezone this property. This case is now closed for comment.


An application is under review for rezoning of property located at 2103 River Road from RT10 Residential (two-unit / townhouse) to RT5.4 Residential (two-unit / townhouse). The property is located on the south side of River Road between North Curtis Street and Lafray Lane. It is currently developed with four residential structures. The requested RT5.4 zoning district is a standard one that applies equally to other areas of the City with the same RT5.4 zoning designation. City Council either approves or denies the rezoning request and cannot approve it subject to conditions.

RT10 and RT5.4 allow for the same land uses, building types, property line setbacks, and building heights. The main difference between the two districts is RT10 has a minimum parcel size and minimum area per unit of 10,000 square feet, while RT5.4 has a minimum parcel size and minimum area per unit of 5,400 square feet. The RT5.4 zoning district allows for higher density than the RT10 zoning district.
