Title
Consider and take action on an ordinance amending Ordinance No. 2005-24 to rezone approximately 2.8 acres (Z10-05 South Hammock #5) from “RSF-5” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 5,000 square feet) to “IL” (Limited Industrial), legally described as portions of Lot 27-1 and Lot 27-2 of League City Division C, generally located north of Austin Street and east of Texas Avenue, with the approximate address being 920 Texas Avenue (Director of Planning and Research)

Planning and Zoning Commission recommended denial 6-2-0 on September 13, 2010.

Background:
A zoning change is being requested for the above referenced property in order to perform mining and drilling for oil and gas. The mining and drilling also require approval of a Special Use Permit, which is another request (SUP10-04 and SUP10-03) associated with this rezoning. On May 18, 2009, the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval subject to conditions of these same requests with the exceptions of the pipeline alignment being proposed tot he east of the drilling site as opposed to the west and the drilling utilizing municipal water supply as opposed to a well. The applicant subsequently withdrew the application prior to the City Council Public Hearing in order to research alternative alignments for the pipeline.

A petition to oppose this request has been submitted. However, the property owners of only 8% of the land area within 200 feet of the site signed. As a result, it will not trigger a ¾ vote of City Council to approve per Chapter 211.006(d) of the Texas Local Government Code.
