explanation
STAFF REPORT

This ordinance amends the Zoning Map Atlas of the City of Gainesville by rezoning from Urban2 (U2) to Urban 5 (U5) approximately 0.987 acres of property, located in the vicinity of and bounded by NW 13th Terrace, NW 14th Terrace, NW 5th Avenue, and NW 6th Avenue.

The proposed Urban 5 zoning consisting of 0.99 acres of land would allow the redevelopment of the block with a density that allows up to 75 dwelling units per acre compared to the 15 units per acre allowed under Urban 2. The six buildings on the site were built between 1937 and 1957 and are generally in fair condition.

The applicants are requesting higher density zoning in order to support mixed-use development. The block is located within walking distance of the University of Florida campus and numerous retail establishments and restaurants. Transit is available with bus stops within two blocks, which would allow residents to use transit for many of their day-to-day activities. The increased density can help reduce driving, reduce traffic congestion, and the subsequent air pollution. The redevelopment of this block with a higher density will not require new streets, or water and sewer extensions.

There have been substantial changes in the character and development of the area in or near the subject properties...
