LEAGUE GRANT ABSTRACT 66) FROM R-1 TO C-1
Chairman Tyler opened the public hearing at 7:04 p.m.
Raymond Burroughs 1026 Oleander Architecture Etc stated the purpose of the rezoning is to develop a
storage facility. The drawings are not completed at the current time. The primary access will be near the
park and ride off of FM2004. TxDot has plans to build an overpass at this intersection. The primary
structure will be a metal building much like the Regal Storage down the highway.
Will Brooks asked if this is just for changing the zoning from R-1 to C-1?
Vicki Childress asked for clarification for the difference between R-1 and C-1.
Mr. Yenne cited that single family residence allowed in the R-1 zone and while C-1 is mostly warehouse
and distribution type facilities, office and office buildings, studios, retail shops, service shops, drive-in
eating places, groceries, day care center, auto repair shops, membership clubs, nursing homes, homes for
orphans, homes for aged, newspaper, auto dealers, hotels, theatres, motels, banks and financial institutions,
lumberyards and brickyards, warehouses, wholesale business, veterinary clinic, commercial laundries,
beverage manufacturing are allowed in the C-1 zone.
Raymond Burroughs stated this development would be much like the Regal storage facility located
further down the highway.
Sal Aguirre stated that in his memo he states those conditions that have already been discussed with
Joe McManus owner of the property wishes to request a zoning change of this property for his planned
development use. Mr. McManus is the current owner of the Royal Storage Business at FM 2004 at the rear
of Don Davis. His plan is to develop more storage related facilities.
The land is at the Northwest corner of the intersection of the two roads across from Bucees.
As a background and information, previously, Mr. McManus also the owner of property around the
bowling alley approached the commission and was successful in rezoning the property from B-1 to C-1 to
do this development. Since then, he has acquired this other property and believes that his highest and best
use of both properties lies in this one.
Mr. McManus has been made aware of all the conditions and encumbrances associated with this property
which for your information are as follows;
a. Future overpass side road frontage and access
b. Possible flood zone change determination along with city build up requirements
c. Flood detention requirements
d. Sanitary sewer service capital recovery fees and collection system extension responsibility
e. Water line extension costs
Mr. Aguirre also stated this is in the X Flood zone and FEMA is looking to remap this area and we do
not know how this will affect this property. There will be possible flood detention changes which have
been mentioned to the property owner. We have also mentioned the sanitary sewer situation. The
current property owners are using privately owned lift stations.
