Rd. 18, another direcsly south of Interlachen Hills <br />apartments and the third parcel is located just west of Cahill Road. Staff would <br />propose that those properties which are zoned either R-3 District or R-4 District <br />under the present ordinance be rezoned to R-1 District in connection with this process. <br />2) Some properties that are zoned Planned.Industria1 District (P1D)'now are proposed to <br />be rezoned to Planned Office District (POD) : <br />Office Park, the Edina Office Center building, and the Xerox Building. Because they are <br />developed with office buildings it is proposed they be rezoned to POD. 3) Some prop- <br />erties in the Southdale area presently zoned Commercial District are developed with <br />office buildings and would be better zoned POD. They are the Southdale Office Center <br />and the Titus Building. Nr. Hughes recalled that at the last meeting the Council had <br />requested that staff notify the owners of those properties to solicit their comments. <br />It was found that many of the buildings are owned by companies that are located out <br />of state. <br />have indicated they see no particular problem with the proposed rezoning, but would <br />have to consult with the owners. <br />gested that the whole issue be deferred until February 27 for solicitation of comments <br />from the building owners, noting that no one had objected to date. 4) Developed resi- <br />dential properties which are presently zoned R-3 District, R-4 District and R-5 District <br />and have to be put into some catagory under the new zoning ordinance. <br />explained that the policy followed in preparing the new zoning map is to rezone those <br />properties to the highest density PRD use permitted by the Comprehensive Plan, but <br />only to the degree of density to prevent any non-conforming status for each site. He <br />noted that there are some developed properties in the City that will be non-conforming <br />by virture of the adoption of the new zoning ordinance due to their density exceeding <br />even the highest zone that is proposed.
