Document Description
The County Planning Department is initiating a Zone Change for nine commercial and industrial properties along the west side of Main Street between Colombero Drive and Minnesota Avenue in McCloud from C-U (Neighborhood Commercial) and M-M (Light Industrial) to C-C (Town Center). In the 1980s, the properties along the west side of Main Street were zoned Neighborhood Commercial (C-U). The C-U district allows such uses as convenience stores, automobile service stations, and repair garages. The parcels along that corridor owned by the railroad were zoned Light Industrial (M-M). The M-M district allows for light manufacturing and other light industrial uses. Several of the buildings within this area are contributing elements to the National Registrar Historic District. It is of concern that many of the land uses allowed within the existing Zone District may not be compatible with the historic character of McCloud. The Town Center District (C-C) designation is found to be more in keeping with the historic uses of the downtown area. Land uses allowed in the C-C District are intended to promote and enhance the diversified uses compatible with and necessary for the viability of town centers and rural communities. To meet this objective, the C-C district provides for retail, professional office, residential, and social/cultural public uses.
