The City Council of the City of Cottage Grove, Washington County, Minnesota, does ordain as follows:
SECTION 1. AMENDMENT. The City of Cottage Grove adopted Ordinance No. 913 on April 3, 2013. Said Ordinance No. 913 rezoned properties with property identification numbers of 03.027.21.43.0003, 03.027.21.42.0003, and 03.027.21.44.003 from AG-1, Agricultural Preservation, to R-3, Single-Family Residential District with a Planned Development Overlay.
SECTION 2. REZONING. The Official Zoning Map shall be amended by changing the zoning classification of the property legally described above from AG-1, Agricultural Preserva-tion, to R-3, Single Family Residential District with a Planned Development Overlay, based on the following findings:
A. The proposed requested R-3, Single Family Residential District and its development standards with the Planned Development Overlay designation is consistent with the low density residential land use designation in the East Ravine Master Plan (June 2006).
B. The proposed R-3, Single Family Residential District, and its development standards with the Planned Development Overlay designation is consistent with the low density residential land use designation in the Future Land Use Map of the City\'s Future Vision 2030 Comprehensive Plan (March 2011).
C. The low-density residential density proposed within the Ravine Meadows subdivision is consistent with the low-density residential density range described in the approved East Ravine Master Plan and the City\'s Future Vision 2030 Comprehensive Plan.
D. The request to rezone the property from AG-1, Agricultural Preservation, to R-3, Single Family Residential, is consistent with the development densities identified in the City\'s Comprehensive Plan and East Ravine Master Plan.
E. The developer proposes to develop the entire 61.8-acre site and 135 lots in three or four phases. Developing this residential project will be compatible with the existing residential neighborhoods south of 70th Street and future neighborhoods in the Upper Ravine area.
F. The proposed variation of lot sizes, lot widths, minimum front yard, and side yard setbacks are similar in function to the proposed PDO plan and will equal or be better than those achieved by the applicable zoning standard.
SECTION 3. EFFECTIVE DATE. This ordinance amendment shall be in full force and effective from and after adoption and publication according to law.
Passed this 18th day of December, 2013.
