What does your planning commission look at when reviewing rezoning requests? What 'criteria', if any, do they follow?
Some initial thoughts:
*Is the request compatible or contrary to the master plan
*Is the request compatible or conflicting with existing land uses?
*Would the request, if approved, consitute spot zoning (whatever that *really* is)?
*Is the area adequately served by utilities/roads?
Any other ideas/thoughts?
