Planning and Zoning Commission will meet at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 26 in Council Chambers at the Municipal Building, 1000 Central Ave. The meeting is open to the public.

Commissioners will hear a request for recommendation of approval to rezone 1.272 acres at 101 DP Road on the southeast corner of Trinity Drive from DT-NCO (Downtown Neighborhood Center) to C-3 (Commercial). The owner/applicant is H&M Properties, represented by Irene Holland requesting approval for a Special Use Permit for non-school related businesses to operate on Los Alamos Public Schools property that is zoned P-L (Public Land).

This would be in addition to a previous Special Use Permit granted to the LAPS for the Pueblo Complex. The new proposed use is for Dynofit, Inc.; a software and hardware development corporation. The property is 12.37-acres at 1900 Diamond Dr.

County staff recommends “approval with conditions” for this request. Based on the material submitted with the application and prior to hearing testimony at the meeting, the Community Development Department planning staff believes that the application meets all the criteria for a Special Use Permit listed in the Development Code. The site was rezoned from Professional Office (P-O) to Public Land (P-L) in 2012. The PL zone is appropriate for LAPS owned property, and allows LAPS, through a special use permit, to use the property for land uses other than schools. This also was the case in 1984, when the school was, at the time, zoned P-L and wanted to convert portions of the complex from school use to professional offices. At the time, there was a balance of commercial use and school use. Today there is still a balance of the two land uses, school and commercial. History of the property’s zoning has gone from P-L to P-O, then back to P-L zoning (2012).

P&Z Commissioners also will hear a request for approval of a site plan for the County owned Nature Center to be constructed at 2600 Canyon Dr.

Any action by the Planning and Zoning Commission in granting approval, conditional approval, or disapproval of an application may be appealed by the applicant or by persons who have a personal or pecuniary interest adversely affected by the decision. Such appeals must be filed with the Community Development Department within 15 days after the date of the action.
