Two businesses in Rosenberg may soon be able to own their own land. At the Rosenberg Planning Commission meeting Wednesday, commissioners approved a replat in Hutchison subdivision. The plat is for 0.1535 acres consisting of one block and two reserves, located at the southwest corner of Avenue I and Sixth Street.
According to Community Development Director Travis Tanner, the replat separates two existing businesses located on the same lot.
“Some of you might know it as the salon and the dog grooming place,” Tanner told the commission. “The purpose of this plat is to basically give both of those businesses their own reserve.
“Those buildings were put there a long time ago and if they were to build in the future, they’d have to comply with current regulations. Right now, they’re basically grandfathered in.”
Commission member Pete Pavlovsky asked if the businesses had any plans of building out. “No,” Tanner responded. “I believe it’s basically an ownership deal.
“Right now, it’s two businesses and there’s two folks wanting to own it. They have their own parking and utilities and everything.
“It’s really just ownership. They’re not developing anything.”
Commissioner Anthony Sulak asked if the buildings were restricted to commercial use.
“As far as the city’s concerned, if someone wants to build something residential there in the future, I suppose that they could,” Tanner responded.
Commissioner Sergio Villagomez made a motion to approve the replat. The motion was seconded by commissioner John Anders and passed unanimously.
According to Tanner, this item will be brought to Rosenberg City Council for consideration.
The commission meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 5 p.m. in City Hall, 2110 Fourth St. Commission meetings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend.
Rosenberg City Council member Jacob Balderas and Rosenberg residents George Zepeda, Pavlovsky, Anders, Villagomez and Sulak serve on the commission.
