The property is generally located south of Main Street and east of Jupiter Road. The property to the north (across Main Street) is zoned Planned Development No. 125 with a base zoning of Community Facilities. The properties to the east are zoned Planned Development No. 89 with a base zoning of Shopping Center (SC). The property to the south and west is zoned SC.
The applicant is proposing to tenant a suite in an existing building for a yoga studio. Staff categorizes this type of use as a Fitness and Health Center use. The property is zoned SC. The Allen Land Development Code (ALDC) requires a Specific Use Permit (SUP) for a Fitness and Health Center use within the SC zoning district.
The applicant submitted a business summary in conjunction with the SUP application. The following is a summary of the proposed business operations:
- Hours of operation: Daily with class times ranging from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
- Average staff count: 1-2
- Average people at any given time for classes: 8-10
There are no outdoor activities being proposed.
The lease space of 2,353± square feet requires a total of 12 parking spaces. The subject property does not have adequate parking to serve the existing uses and the proposed tenant. However, when the subject property and the adjacent lot, commonly known as 600 E. Main Street, are reviewed together, there are adequate spaces for current tenants on both lots and the proposed Fitness and Health Center use. A parking agreement has been executed which allows the applicant to utilize parking spaces on this adjacent lot.
There are no proposed changes to the exterior of the building.
The Specific Use Permit request has been reviewed by staff and meets the standards of the ALDC.
On August 3, 2021, the Planning and Zoning Commission voted to recommend approval of this request.
