RE:          Agenda Item 3 – Rezoning – Airport Grove – 008-0305-05 & 008-0353-09


The applicant is requesting a zoning change from R-1 (Rural Residential) to R-3 (Two-Family Residential) for a duplex subdivision discussed in item 2 of this agenda. 


The Future Land Use Map designates this area as Low-Density Residential, 5-units per acre or less.  The R-3 zoning allows for single & two-family residential and could meet the density requirement.  The Comprehensive Plan allows two-family residential in the Low-Density Residential Category. 

Findings of Fact

·         Staff finds that this Rezoning complies with the Town of Menasha’s Chapter 30 Comprehensive Plan Ordinance Future Land Use Map designation of low-density residential.

Staff Recommendation                            

Staff recommends approval of this Rezoning.
