The amendment is proposed by the City of Melrose for the former downtown Kraft site located at 325 1st St. NE Melrose, MN 56352.  The Property is described as follows:  Lot One (1), Block One (1) of Melrose Riverview Addition, according to the plat and survey thereof, now on file and of record in the office of the Stearns County Recorder. The Future Land Use designation of the parcel is proposed to change from Public/Semi Public to Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial). The Existing Land Use designation of the parcel is proposed to change from Downtown Commercial to Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial).

A copy of the proposed request is on file with the Planning and Zoning Department, Melrose City Center, 225 1st St NE, Melrose MN 56352 and is available for review during normal business hours.  Any persons that desire to be heard regarding the consideration of the applications will be heard at this meeting.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON 

ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENTS

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that The Melrose Planning and Zoning Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. on January 7, 2019, at the City Center, 225 First Street NE, in the City of Melrose, for the purpose of giving consideration to:

(1) Zoning Ordinance Amendment requests proposed by the City of Melrose to amend the text of the City of Melrose Zoning Ordinance No.1989-1-A, as amended, and adopted by reference as Chapter 153 of the City of Melrose Code of Ordinances by Amending Section 1100 Non-Conforming Uses and Structures.  

(2) Land Subdivision Regulations Ordinance Amendment amending, repealing and replacing the existing ordinance.

A copy of the proposed draft Zoning Ordinance amendments are on file at the Melrose City Center, 225 1st St NE, Melrose MN 56352 and are available for review during normal business hours.  Any persons that desire to be heard regarding the consideration of the amendments will be heard at this meeting.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING AND COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that The Melrose Planning and Zoning Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. on January 7, 2019, at the City Center, 225 First Street NE, in the City of Melrose for the purpose of giving consideration to a Rezoning and Comprehensive Plan Amendment to amend the Zoning Map Designation and amending the Current and Future Land Use Maps (Figures 2.1 and 2.2) within the City of Melrose 2030 Comprehensive Plan Update.  

The parcels affected include the multi-family building at 120 5th Ave. NW and the vacant lot immediately to the east.  The parcel numbers of the affected parcels are 66.36711.0000 and 66.36711.0002.  The legal descriptions are Lots 001 and 002, Block 001 Fifth Avenue Addition, according to the plat and survey thereof, now on file and of record in the office of the Stearns County Recorder.

The zoning is proposed to change from R-1, Residential to R-3 Multi-Family Residential.  It is believed that this was historically R-3 but changed to R-1 at some point, possibly inadvertently.  There is similar confusion regarding the Current and Future Land Use designations.  The Current Land Use Map shows “multi-family” for both lots, although the vacant lot is depicted as vacant on one version.  The Future Land Use Map shows “multi-family” for the existing multi-family building, and “single-family” for the vacant lot, but it was “multi-family” on prior maps.  In an effort to be transparent regarding the confusion, the City is initiating a Rezoning and Comprehensive Plan amendment to clearly set forth the designations for the parcels.  

A copy of the proposed request is on file with the Planning and Zoning Department, Melrose City Center, 225 1st St NE, Melrose MN 56352 and is available for review during normal business hours.  Any persons that desire to be heard regarding the consideration of the applications will be heard at this meeting.

Dated this 21st day of December, 2018.
