On The Agenda: Izaak Walton League Rezoning and More
The Gaithersburg mayor and City Council will meet Monday night at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall.
The Gaithersburg mayor and City Council will decide the fate of a 33.54 acre section of the Izaak Walton League of America property at Monday evening's mayor and City Council meeting.
The IWL hopes the section, currently zoned as Low Density Residential, will be rezoned as a Mixed Use Development Zone to permit a proposed mix of uses, including the two existing residential units and out buildings, philanthropic and office uses in the existing 3-story building, and a telecommunications facility, according to city documents.
The property is located at 700, 704 and 707 Conservation Lane, off Muddy Branch Road, home of the IWL's national headquarters.
The mayor and Council can also approve a Schematic Development Plan for the same property.
Both the rezoning and Schematic Development Plan were recommended for approval by the Gaithersburg Planning Commission on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Other notable agenda items include:
- A joint public hearing on the application for the historic designation of the circa 1890 Folk Victorian building located at 13 Desellum Avenue, the Sterick Cottage.
- A public hearing on an ordinance to amend city code on erosion, sediment control and stormwater management.
The full agenda can be viewed on the city of Gaithersburg website. The mayor and City Council will meet at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall's council chambers.
