Single family residence / E(1) (Estate - 1 Acre) / GC (General Commercial)

Document Description
A zone change from E(1) (Estate - 1 Acre Minimum) to C-2 PD (General Commercial - Precise Development) on 2.31 acres currently developed with a single-family residence. Request is for a change in zone classification to facilitate the reestablishment of commercial development on a corner lot previously occupied by a motel and service station; however, no new development is currently being proposed. The site's existing zoning of E(1) is inconsistent with its general plan map code designation of GC (General Commercial). Approval of a change in zone classification is therefore necessary to bring the site's zoning into consistency with the Metropolitan Bakersfield General Plan and allow future commercial development of the site as envisioned. Access would continue to be by South Union Avenue (State Route 99 Bus.) and Berkshire Road, which are designated as arterial and collector alignments, respectively, by the Circulation Element of the Metropolitan Bakersfield General Plan. As proposed, water supply and sewage disposal for the future onsite development would be by the Greenfield County Water District and City of Bakersfield, respectively. The purpose of the General Commercial (C-2) District is to designate areas for the widest range of retail commercial activities, including regional shopping centers and heavy commercial uses. The purpose of the PD Combining District is to identify areas with unique site characteristics or environmental conditions or areas surrounded by sensitive land uses to ensure development in such areas is compatible with such constraints. Development in the PD Combining District is discretionary and therefore, subject to further environmental review. No use can be established or developed in the PD Combining District until an application for development has been deemed complete and an environmental document, if required, is completed so the request can be considered at a regularly scheduled public hearing.
