Professional Offices/Commercial
Document Description
The applicants are requesting approval of a Zoning Amendment (ZA) and General Plan Amendment (GPA) for a 0.31-acre parcel in Murphys. They are proposing to amend the zoning from Professional Offices (CP) to Multiple-Family Residential (R3), and the general plan designation from Commercial (C) to Residential Medium Density (RMD). The parcel is currently developed with a single-family residence. The applicants have stated that the intent of the ZA and GPA is to allow the existing single-family residence to continue being used as a single-family residence. Without this proposed change, the property will be designated as non-conforming and would require an approved Conditional Use Permit for future additions or modifications. Additionally, such designation, in the applicant’s opinion, would make it difficult to sell the property if necessary. No further development of the parcel is proposed as part of this project. The subject parcel is located at 73 Mitchler Avenue, Murphys, CA. APN 068-020-065 is located in a portion of Section 5, T03N, R14E, MDM.
