Summary Staff Report:


At its May 8th regular meeting, the Board of Supervisors initiated and referred the following amendments to the Planning Commission: (1) Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment to create a Marshall Gateway Special District (MG) as Section 4-1000; (2) Comprehensive Plan Amendment to Chapter 6 – Service Districts in order to designate approximately 26 acres to Mixed Use on the Marshall Service District’s Land Use Plan, and (3) REZNO8-MA-006 which proposes to rezone approximately 25 acres from R-4 to Marshall Gateway Special District (MG). All three amendments were referred concurrently to the Planning Commission for public hearing and recommendation.

The Planning Commission conducted the first public hearing on May 29th for the referenced amendments. Public comment requested time to consider the proposals, along with more time for Marshall Citizen Planning Committee review as well as expanded staff analysis and information.  The Commission postponed action and the public hearing was left open for the June 26th session.  It is clear that additional time for review and final recommendations is needed and is being requested on behalf of the Planning Commission.

Here it is recommended that the Board of Supervisors provide the Planning Commission the month of July and August to consider public comments and prepare any refinements and require recommendation by its September 25, 2008 meeting.
