  Zoning Code Manager, Tiffany provided a presentation on the application.

Commissioner Norton asked when the zoning will take effect on the property, about the condition for internal connections, about the median and the required edge improvement on the east side of Beulah Boulevard.
Staff responded that the rezoning ordinance goes into effect 30 days after adoption, the condition helps staff to ensure that future development will be compliant, the median is to be landscaped, but further discussion is necessary, and the edge improvements include curb and gutter with no on street parking.

Commission Sharp asked about the avigation easement condition.
Staff responded it is a requirement due to the proximity of the airport and that the easement reiterates existing federal laws.

Commissioner Harris asked about the Woody Mountain Road connection.
The applicant responded that existing road alignment connects at a different location currently.
