I have a change of zone application, which we send to nearby jurisdictions and let them comment. One of my nearby jurisdictions is alleging that the application is spot zoning. I don't agree and wondered what was your opinion, great giver of opinions!
This is a heavy business/industrial area. We have a few zoning districts that are similar. general business, heavy general business, highway business, light industry and heavy industry. They all fit into a classification in my land use plan called business park. So I have been looking at them based on location, abutting uses and your general consideration for change of zone applications. They want to change from light industry to heavy general business. The differences in the two districts are pretty minor. surrounding districts are LI, but further off there is a mix of heavy business and highway business.
Would you call this spot zoning?
