South County Sector Plan AmendmentRelated Case(s)
Deny RC (Rural Commercial) sector plan amendment.
Staff recommends denial of the plan amendment to RC (Rural Commercial) because of the potential impact to neighboring properties of a lesser intense use, including large lot single family and rural residential and the nearby Veteran's Cemetery and adjacent Church. The location is also not at the intersection of two thoroughfares (arterial and/or collector streets) therefore not meeting the location criteria for Rural Commercial. The existing land use plan classification of LDR (Low Density Residential) for the property allows for reasonable use of the land recommending several zone districts for areas designated LDR in the Planned Growth Area of Knox County. The zones recommended for LDR in this area include: RA, RAE and PR at less than 5 dwelling units per acre, A and RB zones may also be considered under the LDR land use plan classification.
