                    TITLE An Ordinance of the Town of Palisade, Colorado, Amending the Zone District Map of the Town by Zoning Certain Property Known as 395 Troyer Avenue (Parcel #2937-091-08-010) from CB Commercial Business to LI Light Industrial

APPLICATION SUMMARY This application would rezone approximately .38 acres (16,552 square feet) from the current zoning of CB Commercial Business to LI Light Industrial. The owner of the property at 395 Troyer Avenue requested the rezoning in order to permit a business to obtain a license to operate a small camper restoration business in the building. The existing commercial zoning would not accommodate the use. In 2016 The Board of Trustees approved a change of zoning for five adjoining parcels with an area of approximately 2.82 acres That zoning with this request would establish approximately 3.2 acres of Light Industrial zoning.

                    SITE HISTORY The area of request is located on land originally subdivided as the Stump Industrial Park. The Town of Palisade Planning Commission approved the subdivision in December of 1979. It included the layout of 7 lots and Stump Court, which was never improved. The existing building of approximately 4,500 square feet located on the site was constructed in 1982 according to the Mesa County Assessors Records.

At the time the area developed, no industrial zoning for the Town of Palisade was established. The area was originally zoned as B-2 Business that was replaced by the CB Commercial Business District in 2008 with the adoption of the new Land Development Code. Although the 2007 Comprehensive Plan supported industrial uses for several parts of the Town, including this area, and the LI zoning was created in 2008 for those areas, no land was actually zoned Light Industrial until 2016.

Until the late 1970’s this area of the Town had remained rural. The only development included a residence at 329 Troyer, constructed in 1918 and a residence at 3847 N. River Road constructed in 1930. It was not until the late 1970s when the area was annexed into the Town that other development, including the industrial uses, occurred. Generally homes west of the site were constructed after 1978. No residential subdivision was established for any of the residences in the area, and the land upon which the residences are located was originally zoned B2 Business.

Residential zoning was only established as late as 1994, west of the site, and 1999 east of the site.
