The Post Falls Planning and Zoning Commission is holding a special meeting tonight at 5:30 at City Hall at 408 N. Spokane St.

Several zoning recommendations are on the agenda which can be found at postfallsidaho.org. Public hearing will be taken on each.

Dobler Engineering will present the Barnum’s Addition zone change request on behalf of property owner Robert Wilhelm. The property is about .55 acres located on the east side of Elm Road to the north of Interstate 90.

Currently the acreage is zoned R-1 or single-family residential, and includes a pre-existing duplex. Developers believe a zone change to R-2, or medium-family residential will create a legally conforming use of the property. The surrounding property to the west is zoned R-2 and includes a developing twin-home community. To the north and east are single-family residential zones.

The Pointe at Post Falls zone change request will be presented by Nate Ballard with the Wadsworth Development Group. Developers are requesting that about 54 acres be rezoned from industrial and community commercial services to a community commercial mixed (CCM) designation.

Located near Cabela’s at the state line, the property sits west of Baugh Way, north of I-90 and south of Seltice Way.

The CCM zoning designation is intended to accommodate both commercial uses and high-density residential. The owner has agreed that no more than 15.4 acres will be used for multi-family developments.

The surrounding area includes businesses like Walmart, Sysco and Panda Express, as well as a developing RV park nearby.

The project master plan includes space for several distribution centers, a UPS facility, and a multi-family complex. The property is part of the city of Post Falls’ Riverbend Focus Area.

Dobler Engineering will present the Ashford Place annexation and zone request, on behalf of property owner Kulka Land LLC, out of Las Vegas.

The 12.34 acres is at the southwest corner of McGuire Road and Grange Avenue. The desired zone designation is for single-family or R-1 zoning, as well as a subdivision into 33 individual lots. The lot will vary in size from 10,000 square feet to 19,954 square feet.

Surrounding land is currently used for single-family housing.

In other news, a request to zone approximately three school sites from single-family to public reserve will be presented by planning manager Jon Manley.
