The following ordinance which was introduced and read at the regular meeting of Tuesday, May 30, 2017 and held over until the regular meeting of June 6, 2017 was called up by the Presiding Officer.

ORDINANCE: 64-023-2017

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ORDINANCE ADOPTED BY THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF THE CITY OF MOBILE ON THE 16TH DAY OF MAY, 1967, SAID ORDINANCE BEING COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE ZONING ORDINANCE.

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MOBILE AS FOLLOWS:

Section One: That the Ordinance commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance and adopted on May 16, 1967, together with the Zoning Map of the City of Mobile, 1967, be, and the same hereby is changed and altered in respect to that certain property in the City of Mobile, State of Alabama, described as follows to-wit:

BEGINNING AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF LOT 23 ALBA POINT, AS RECORDED IN MAP BOOK 3, PAGE 245, IN THE OFFICE OF THE JUDGE OF PROBATE, MOBILE COUNTY ALABAMA; THENCE N0°36'14"E ALONG THE EAST LINE OF SAID LOT 23, FOR A DISTANCE OF 452.00 FEET T0 A POINT; THENCE N66°34'48"E 119.08 FEET TO A POINT; THENCE S03°34'46"E 218.94 FEET TO A POINT; THENCE N79°53'38"E 81.72 FEET TO A POINT ON THE RIGHT OF WAY CANAL ROAD,SAID POINT ON A CURVE TO THE LEFT HAVING A RADIUS OF 40.00 FEET, A DELTA OF 185°48'33": THENCE ALONG SAID CURVE TO THE LEFT 129.72 FEET TO A POINT; THENCE CONTINUING ALONG THE RIGHT OF WAY ALBA AVENUE N72°11'01"E 177.41 FEET TO A POINT OF CURVE, HAVING A RADIUS OF 939.56 FEET AND A DELTA OF 5°35'45"; THENCE ALONG SAID CURVE TO THE LEFT 92.00 FEET TO A POINT; THENCE S20°04'43"E 18.56 FEET TO A POINT ON THE RIGHT OF WAY OF DAUPHIN ISLAND PARKWAY (140.00' RIGHT OF WAY) SAID POINT ON A CURVE TO THE RIGHT HAVING A RADIUS OF 130,547.36 FEET, A DELTA OF 0°09'16"; THENCE ALONG SAID CURVE TO THE RIGHT AND THE RIGHT OF WAY OF DAUPHIN ISLAND PARKWAY 352.15 FEET TO A POINT; THENCE S60°34'33"W 35.62 FEET TO A POINT ON THE NORTH RIGHT OF WAY LINE OF ALBA AVENUE (60'R/W); THENCE N89°23'46"W 430.47 FEET TO THE POINT OF BEGINNING.

The classification of said property is hereby changed from R-1, Single-Family Residential District, to B-3, Community Business District, and it shall hereafter be lawful to construct on such property any structures permitted by the Ordinance of May 16, 1967, commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance and to use said premises for any use permitted by the terms of said Ordinance in a B-3, Community Business District, provided, however, that the plans for any structure or building sought to be erected on said property shall be in compliance with the building laws of the City of Mobile, and that any structure shall be approved by the Building Inspector of the City of Mobile, and that any such structure be erected only in compliance with such laws, including the requirements of said Zoning Ordinance of May 16, 1967, and further provided, however, that no lot or parcel of land herein above described shall be used for any use allowed in a B-3, Community Business District, until all of the conditions set forth below have been complied with: 1) compliance with the conditions of the Mobile County Circuit Court Consent Judgement of March 25, 1998; 2) completion of the subdivision process; and 3) full compliance with all other municipal codes and ordinances.

Section Two: This Ordinance shall be in force and effect from and after its adoption and publication.

Councilmember Small moved that the ordinance be adopted, which motion was seconded by Councilmember Richardson; and

Councilmember Small stated for the record:

“The rule governing amendment of the Zoning Ordinance is found in section 64-9 of the City Code. That rule states that casual change or amendment to the chapter would be detrimental to the achievement of zoning objectives, and that it is the public policy to amend this chapter only when one or more of the following conditions prevail:

a. Error. There is a manifest error in the chapter.

b. Change in conditions. Changed or changing conditions in a particular area, or in the planning region generally, make a change in the chapter necessary and desirable;

c. Increase in need for sites for business or industry. Increased or increasing needs for business or industrial sites, in addition to the sites that are available, make it necessary and desirable to rezone an area or to extend the boundaries of an existing district;

d. Subdivision of land. The subdivision or imminent subdivision of land into urban building sites makes reclassification necessary and desirable.

Last week’s presentation by the applicant did not, in my opinion, demonstrate that any of these four criteria were satisfied. In fact, the applicant stated several times that he has utilized his property as a marina and for boat sales for over forty years and that he does not intend to change the use of the property in the future.

It is therefore my conclusion that an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance is not warranted and I will be voting “No.”

and the vote was as follows:

Ayes: None
Nays: Richardson, Manzie, Small, Daves, Rich and Gregory

The vote was then announced by the City Clerk whereupon the Presiding Officer declared the ordinance denied.
