Stockdale approves rezoning request
STOCKDALE -- A block of property located within the Stockdale city limits as an “agriculture district” is now classified as a multi-family residential district, following a decision by the Stockdale City Council during its Oct. 15 special called meeting.
According to City Secretary Thania Santos after the meeting, the city council approved to change Block 59, located in the area of West Wheeler and Sixth streets.
A public hearing was held Sept. 27, in which four residents asked questions, but no objections were offered.During the public hearing, City Manager Banks Akin said the rezoning change was due to a resident who wanted to replace one mobile home with another. Upon review, he said the request could not be approved until the lot was rezoned to multi-family residential, at which time Akin suggested rezoning the entire block. The relevant classification/city ordinances date back to 2000.
Stockdale Mayor Johnny Stahl speculated that the council, at that time, classified the area as agricultural, as part of this block is located within a designated flood plain. Akin said the flood-plain area has since been decreased, according to the most recent maps presented by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
***In attendance: Mayor Johnny Stahl, councilmen Sherry D. Lambeck, Scott Soden, Saul Bosquez, and Becky Armstrong, and City Manager Banks Akin.
