ANA to Oppose Zoning Request on Montview Street

Blue_star_003submitted by Tom Linehan

At the July 27th Allandale Executive Committee meeting the Board voted to oppose the rezoning request regarding 5513 Montview. This is a deep lot behind commercial property
on Burnet Rd. The estate of the owner is requesting that
the section of the lot close to Burnet Rd
be changed from SF-2 to CS (commercial) zoning leaving the remaining section of the lot on Montview as SF-2. You can track progress on the case at the City’s web site here. At Wednesday’s meeting, Anne Young, a resident of the area, brought
the Board current on the status of the request and summarized the
concerns of her and her neighbors. In the picture taken from Montview facing the lot, you can see the back of
the commercial building that fronts Burnet Rd. However, you cannot see
the homes that are either side of the lot.   

Zoning issues were the focus of ANA’s Executive Meeting

Three zoning issues: subdividing the lot on 6100 Bull
Creek, Dry Dock Seafood permit request for a late night hours permit, and rezoning
of a lot on Montview from single family residence to commercial comprised the
bulk of the August meeting discussion.  What
follows are the minutes from the 7/27/06 ANA Executive Committee Meeting.

Gretchen Vaden called the meeting to order. The following items were discussed:

Zoning issue – 6100 Bull CreekRecap: Allan McMurty and several
neighbors are looking into the request by the owner to resub the lot at 6100
Bull Creek
(divide the existing lot to make two lots). Patrick Manley, Executive Committee member
and neighbor, spoke with the owner – his plans are to build a 2100+ sq ft
courtyard home on each of the two lots.

26 update:
Mark Herron submitted a plan to the city to resub/divide the lot
at 6100 Bull Creek to the Zoning and Platting Commission on July 18th. Neighbors spoke at the meeting
