Bobby Adamson Plans 24 Homes On Midland Pike; Planning Agency Staff Recommends Rezoning Denial

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Bobby Adamson is proposing to develop an approximately six-acre site with 24 single-family detached homes.

The staff of the Regional Planning Agency is recommending denial of the rezoning, saying the application is for a Planned Unit Development" but it appears to be a traditional subdivision.

The entrance would be on Midland Pike.

There would be one- and two-story buildings fronting on a cul-de-sac in the 4500 block.

Proposed density is approximately 3.9 dwelling units per acre.

The site is located on the south side of Midland Pike approximately 400 feet to the west of the Midland Pike and North Parkdale Avenue intersection.

The site has an existing sewer system installed and grading done. There are no paved roads or buildings on the site currently. The site is surrounded by single-family detached dwellings in separate subdivisions. To the north east is a large undeveloped parcel.

Average residential density surrounding the site is 2.5 dwelling units per acre. The Shawnee Circle subdivision to the west has an average density of four dwelling units per acre.

The site is currently zoned R-1 Residential Zone.

The property is surrounded by lots zoned R-1 Residential Zone. There is a subdivision to the south east which is zoned R-2 Residential Zone. ? There has been no recent zoning activity on this site. Plans/Policies/Regulations.

The North Brainerd Area Plan (adopted by City Council 2004) recommends low-density residential development.
