1108 West 31st Street – On Monday, September 29, 2014 (6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) at Howson Branch Public Library, 1105 E. Cesar Chavez, the Central West Austin Combined Neighborhood Plan Contact Team met to consider a proposed plan amendment for 1108 West 31st Street.  Meetings details posted at the NPA Case Info.  After consideration at the meeting, the NPCT postponed decision on the requested plan amendment pending further negotiations between the applicant and neighbor stakeholders.

The applicant is requesting an amendment to the Future Land Use Map to change the current “Multifamily” land use to “Mixed Use/Office” land use.

The meeting is being sponsored by the City of Austin as a community meeting to provide an opportunity for the applicant, neighborhood planning contact team, nearby residents/property owners and other interested parties to discuss the proposed plan amendment, zoning change, and restrictive covenant applications in a Q & A format so people can get more information about the plan amendment and zoning change requests. If someone can’t attend the meeting but has questions they’d like answered, they can either send their questions to Maureen Meredith or have someone at the meeting ask the questions for them. If people want to make general comments about the cases, they can email Maureen.Meredith@austintexas.gov and/or Sherri.Sirwaitis@austintexas.gov their comments for inclusion in the case reports that will be submitted to the Planning Commission and City Council. People can also wait until they get the Notice of Public Hearing notices in the mail (once the cases are scheduled) which will have a comment form attached to it and they can send the form to us at that time.

This FLUM amendment is being considered “out of cycle” because on August 12, 2014, the NPCT Executive Committee voted to approve the request for out-of-cycle consideration of a neighborhood plan amendment based on the condition that the application will be pursued in the name of the property owner, and further on the condition the following restrictions will be included in the zoning request:  (i) the FLUM change being requested would be to “Mixed Use/ Office” like the school property to the north, and (ii) the LO-MU zoning would be restricted by a conditional overly (CO) that would (a) limit uses to private school uses and residential uses allowed in MF-2 only, and (b) restrict any residential uses to MF-2 site development regulations.  With these restrictions the use of the property would be limited to how it is currently zoned or for private school uses, and no others.
