Meetings and hearings have been set for Rezoning Case No. Z-41-18, which requests a change in zoning for approximately 2.16 acres located at the northeast corner of 7th Street and Thomas Road (the "Property") from Parking P-1 District to R-5 Multi-Family Residence District and High­Rise HR District. The Property is currently part of an expansive surface parking lot which serves the Phoenix Country Club. A local development company, AGS, LLC, proposes to redevelop the Property as high­quality condominiums and to redesign and improve the entire Phoenix Country Club parking lot to continue to meet the parking needs of the Phoenix Country Club and to create a shaded, walkable environment along 7th Street. The quality and compatibility of the proposed condominiums will invigorate the unique and long-standing Phoenix Country Club site while activating the under-utilized northeast corner of this intersection and serving as a much-needed stimulus for further redevelopment and positive revitalization in the surrounding area. The meeting and hearing dates are:
