Case No. Z-19025 - Retirement Systems of Alabama Property Rezoning





Accept and acknowledge the WITHDRAWAL of Case Z-19025, Retirement Systems of Alabama Property, as it pertains to the rezoning of approximately 1.27 acres, located in Planning (Zoning) District 26, from TR, Tourist Resort District, to HDR, High Density Residential District.





Previous Commission action/date:  N/A


Background:  The subject property, which consists of approximately 1.27 acres, is currently zoned TR, Tourist Resort District. This property is part of a larger 26.6 acre parcel which is owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama (RSA). It is located in Planning District 26 on the west side of Scenic Highway 98, at the north end of the Grand Hotel Marina. The applicant is requesting a rezoning to HDR, High Density Residential District, in order to develop condominium units. As proposed, 12 units would be constructed in a 4-story building. The Planning Commission considered this case, which has generated significant opposition from area residents, on September 5, 2019, and voted to recommend DENIAL to the County Commission.


The applicant has now requested to withdraw this rezoning application. Due to the timing of the request, the withdrawal is automatic. However, the scheduled public hearing must still be opened. As a result, staff requests that the WITHDRAWAL of Case Z-19025, Retirement Systems of Alabama Property, be accepted and acknowledged.
