RE:                     To rezone the properties known as 3329 Hopkins Road and 3425 Hopkins Road from the R-4 Single-Family Residential District to the R-6 Single-Family Attached Residential District (Conditional), upon certain proffered conditions.

 

ORD. OR RES. No.                                          

 

 

PURPOSE:  To rezone the properties known as 3329 Hopkins Road and 3425 Hopkins Road from the R-4 Single-Family Residential District to the R-6 Single-Family Attached Residential District (Conditional), upon certain proffered conditions.

 

REASON:  The applicant is requesting to rezone the properties to the R-6 Single-Family Attached Residential District, which allows, among other requirements, additional permitted principal uses than the current R-5 Single-Family Residential District. A rezoning of the properties is therefore required.

 

RECOMMENDATION:  In accordance with the requirements of the City Charter and the Zoning Ordinance, the City Planning Commission will review this request and make a recommendation to City Council. This item will be scheduled for consideration by the Commission at its February 7, 2022 meeting.

 

BACKGROUND:  The properties together consist of approximately 90,604 SF, or 2.07 acres, of land. The property is located in the Walmsley Neighborhood at the intersection of Warwick Road and Hopkins Road.

The City’s Richmond 300 Master Plan designates these parcels as Neighborhood Mixed Use. Such areas are intended to include “Existing or new highly-walkable urban neighborhoods that are predominantly residential with a small, but critical, percentage of parcels providing retail, office, personal service, and institutional uses.”

 

Primary Uses: Single-family houses, accessory dwelling units, duplexes, small multi-family buildings (typically 3-10 units), and open space.

Secondary Uses: Large multifamily buildings (10+units), retail/office/personal service, institutional, cultural, and government. (p. 56)

 

Currently, properties to the east are zoned R-4, Single-Family Residential, and properties to the west are zoned R-3 Single-Family Residential. A small segment of R-43 Multifamily Residential is directly north of the properties along Warwick Avenue.

 

FISCAL IMPACT / COST:  The Department of Planning and Development Review does not anticipate any impact to the City’s budget for this or future fiscal years.

 

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:  Staff time for processing the request; preparation of draft ordinance; and publishing, mailing and posting of public notices.

 

BUDGET AMENDMENT NECESSARY:  No

 

REVENUE TO CITY:  $3,700 Application fee
