6. Lot 14 Venture Way - An OCP and Zoning Amendment to remove both the split OCP and Zoning designations to permit a light-industrial development.

The OCP amendment would remove Mixed-Use Commercial for the property. The OCP amendment would also update the form and character Development Permit areas map to include this lot.
There are currently two zones on the property, Light Industrial in the north west corner, and Single Family and Two family residential zone 3 over the remaining area. The Zoning Amendment would expand the Light Industrial zone to the whole site and remove the Single Family and Two Family Residential zone 3. A Development Permit has been applied for the form and character of the proposed 15-unit light industrial building.
