Said Tract contains 53.22 acres, more or less.

 

 the Governing Body makes the following findings:

 

  1. All conditions precedent for the amendment of the City’s Zoning District Map and the rezoning of the Property have been timely met;

     

  2. The location and physical attributes of the Property and the availability of public utilities make it suitable for residential development with only internal public improvements;

     

  3. The Property lies within a Primary Service Area on the Urban Services Area map meaning that City utilities are already in place or that the City of Salina has long term plans or expectations to extend its services or its boundary in this direction. In this case the City has already extended utilities ( water and sanitary sewer) to this area;

     

  4. Rezoning of the Property for residential development could be viewed as contiguous, infill development of property that is already surrounded by built up areas of the city;

     

  5. The Property is adjacent to existing R-2 zoning on the south and a change to R-2 zoning would be compatible with the existing zoning pattern on the north side of Schilling Road to the south of the proposed development; and

     

  6. The requested zoning change and proposed residential density would be consistent with the city’s Comprehensive Plan which identifies the Property as suitable for Suburban Residential-type development.

 

Section 2.    AMENDMENT. DISTRICT "R-2", MULTIPLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.  The Zoning District Map of the City of Salina, Kansas is amended to rezone the Property as part of DISTRICT "R-2", MULTIPLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.
