The community Meeting on Monday 10/26/15 at 6:00 was a great success.
We had over 100 neighbors come out to support and become educated on changes and issues in our community.
The issue that received the most attention was the Medical Marijuana Dispensary proposed at Shea & 32nd St.
It is time for the community to make their voices heard. Whether you are for or against this proposal, it is urgent that you speak up.
See the following conditions for use permit approval.
CONDITIONS FOR USE PERMIT APPROVAL:
A Use Permit is a request to allow a use which is permitted by the Zoning Ordinance provided that the use will not cause an adverse impact on adjacent property or properties in the area. The Zoning Administrator or Hearing Officer must find two (2) conditions exist in order to rule favorably on a Use Permit request. The burden of proof is with the applicant and the granting of a Use Permit is at the Zoning Administrator’s or Hearing Officer’s discretion. The two conditions are as follows:
- The use will not cause an adverse impact on adjacent property or properties in the area. Adverse impacts would include, for example: a significant increase in vehicular or pedestrian traffic in adjacent residential areas; emission of odor, dust, gas, noise, vibration, smoke, heat, or glare at a level exceeding ambient conditions; contribution in a measurable way to the deterioration of the area or contribution to the lowering of property values.
- The use will be in compliance with all provisions of the Zoning Ordinance and the laws of the City of Phoenix.
It has been determined that the applicant is in compliance with Zoning and City of Phoenix.
For example: A survey has been done and determined that Shadow Mountain High School is further away than the minimum distance required.
The remaining questions are:
Will it cause an adverse impact on the adjacent properties?
Will it have a significant increase in pedestrian or vehicular traffic in adjacent residential areas?
Will it emit odor, dust, gas, noise, vibration, smoke, heat, or glare at a level exceeding ambient conditions?
Will it contribute in a measurable way to the deterioration of the area or contribution to the lowering of property values?
Whether you are pro or con – these are the items that need to be addressed in any communication on this matter.
