Agenda Item Brief: This request is to rezone from Industrial (I) to Tourist Commercial (TC) consisting of 5.03 acres. The applicant would like to rezone the balance of their properties to TC. The properties fronts on Glendale Avenue and complies with the Master Plan.

Background: On December 5, 2013, the Planning Commission forwarded a recommendation of approval for the zone change on a property approximately 5.03 acres in size from Industrial (I) to Tourist Commercial (TC) located at 1795, 1817, 1819, 1845 and 1865 Glendale Avenue. The existing casino building was constructed in the early 1970s. The Shy Clown Casino operated at this location from 1974 to 1981. The property was vacant for seven years. In 1988, Baldini’s Sports Casino opened and still operates at the southwest corner of Glendale Avenue and Rock Boulevard. Baldini’s Casino has over 42,000 square feet of casino floor area. The two existing buildings on the property consist of a 59,883 square foot casino building on the east side and a 6,000 square foot storage building on the west side. The remaining 10 acres has been developed as parking lots and landscaping.

Analysis: Baldini’s Casino property consists of six parcels for a total of 10.45 acres. The parcel the casino building is located on is currently zoned Tourist Commercial. The other five parcels are zoned Industrial, a total of 5.03 acres. The applicant is requesting to rezone the balance of their properties, five parcels, from Industrial to Tourist Commercial. This request will bring all their properties between Glendale Avenue, Rock Boulevard and Freeport Boulevard as land use designation of Tourist Commercial and zoned as Tourist Commercial. The zoning findings are attached to this staff report. The other attachments for your reference are: rezoning Map, Rezoning Ordinance and Planning Commission Report of Action.

Alternatives: The City Council may deny the rezone request.

Recommended Motion: I move to approve Bill No. 2667 for the rezone, associated with PCN13021, based on the Findings Z1 through Z3 and the facts supporting these Findings as set forth in the staff report.
