Douglas Ward Rezone and General Plan Amendment – 721 S 1200 E

Petition Numbers: PLNPCM2023-00496 & PLNPCM2023-00639

Request Type: Rezone and General Plan Amendment

Location: 721 S 1200 E

Zone: R-2 Single and Two Family Residential

The applicant, Jim Brewer of the McGillis School, has requested a zoning and master plan amendment for the Douglas Ward property. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns the property, and the McGillis School operates a school at 668 South 1300 East. The McGillis School wishes to acquire the Douglas Ward Building and use the said property to extend its school for classes, meetings, assemblies, and administration. The use as a school is not permitted or conditional in the R-2 Zone so, the request requires an amendment to the zoning map from R-2 to Public Lands (PL). The General Plan Amendment is also necessary to change the designation from Low-Density Residential to Institutional on the Future Land Use Map.

The applicant initially requested a PL rezone, but as of August 29th, he has requested a rezone to an I institutional zone. View Updated Project Narrative – 8.29.23
