Pine Curve Property Proposed Rezoning
On May 16, 2016, the Town Council voted to withdraw the proposal to rezone the Pine Curve property from it's current zoning of Greater Downtown District - Historic Center to Planned Development (PD).
In 2002, the Town purchased a 24.4-acre parcel on the east side of downtown Parker, known as the Pine Curve property. The property was originally purchased for a proposed new police station and fire department headquarters. These facilities have been constructed at other locations in Town and are no longer planned for this site.
The Town was proposing to rezone the property from the current zoning of Greater Downtown District – Historic Center to Planned Development (PD).
A Rezoning establishes the land use standards for future development which includes:
- Permitted land uses
- Setbacks from property lines
- Height limits
- Architectural standards
- A development proposal
- A site or a landscape plan
- An engineering document
- Does not subdivide property
- Does not transfer property to a new owner
- Does not determine the final end user or business
