Section 1.  Findings. The Governing Body makes the following findings:

1. The property at the northwest corner of North Seventh Street and Elm Street has been the home to a fire station serving the central portion of the city for over 60 years and this property has been shown to be suitable for that use.

2. The existing I-2 zoning of the fire station site does not reflect its actual ownership and use.

3. The subject property is adjacent to the City-County Building government campus on the south and is buffered by public streets on three sides and the requested zoning change from I-2 to PDD – P(PF) and the reduced front yard setback on North Eighth Street would not adversely affect the surrounding neighborhood or harm the value or use of neighboring properties because there are no residential uses in the vicinity and the list of uses is more restrictive in the Public Use district than under the existing I-2 zoning classification.

4. Needed utilities and drainage facilities, and adequate public street access are in place to serve the proposed fire station facility expansion.

5. The subject property is shown as a future Public / Quasi Public land use area on the Future Land Use Map and approval of PDD “P-(PF)” zoning would be consistent with this land use designation.
