Council sends zoning request back to P&Z

KINGMAN ­ A tabled zoning item previously disputed by council, a request for commercial development on Hualapai Mountain Road and zoning approval for new subdivisions go in front of the city Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday night.

The open hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the City Complex Council Chambers on 310 N. Fourth St.

The developer for a multiple-family subdivision called Morrow Acres III returns to the commission for a rezoning and preliminary plat request on 4.63 acres located south of Kino Avenue and west of the AAA Mobile Home Park.

The plan is for 19 multiple family lots, or duplexes, a density of 8.2 dwelling units per-acre, slightly smaller than the density called for General Plan 2020­ 9-16 dwelling units per-acre.

Council sent the developer back to the drawing board on the original request for a plan more along the lines of the General Plan's designation.

The Commission will consider a zoning request for commercial rezoning from residential on the northeast corner of Hualapai Mountain Road and Seneca Street to allow the construction of office space. One resident has expressed concern to city staff and the city has received a letter from property owners on Packsaddle Street worried about further development to follow in the wake of the rezoning.

North of Hualapai Mountain Road and west of Seneca Street is the location where developers are requesting rezoning 88.63 acres from rural residential for a single-family residential subdivision.

The commission will also hear a request for a minor area General Plan amendment to convert current rural density residential zoning

to medium density residential for a subdivision called White Cliffs Estates described as affordable and luxurious housing with easy access to downtown and the golf course, located between Country Club Canyon Estates and White Cliffs Road and Wilshire, west of Harvard Street.

Another request is for rezoning for 3.2 acres on Hualapai Mountain Road from residential to a commercial designation for development of office/retail space and for future relocation of a radio tower.

Three other rezoning requests and one preliminary plat approval for residential subdivisions is also on the agenda.

The commission will also review talent bank applications and possibly make recommendations to the city council for three upcoming vacancies on the commission.

Terms for Commissioners Dave Adams and Jim Cave expire on Dec. 31, and Commissioner Mike Blair has served for two terms and is not eligible for reappointment.
