Busy Bellaire P&Z Meetings Reveal Possible Application From Methodist And Ordinance Updates For Noise And Lighting

2023 has already required plenty of time and effort from the members of the Bellaire Planning and Zoning Commission.  

A Public Hearing Will Be Scheduled on a Proposal From
Methodist for the Randalls Site

During the January 23 meeting City staff liaison Monique Alejos reported on the receipt of a formal application to P&Z for the planned development of the Methodist medical office building at the former Randalls property on Bellaire Blvd. They are waiting on additional documentation before scheduling the public hearing.  Apparently Methodist has signed a 35-year ground lease for the property. Find a link to the January, 2023, meeting here.  Expect more information on the Methodist application on this site in a few weeks!

The February 9, 2023, of the P&Z meeting focused on discussion and final consideration on a new Noise and Lighting ordinance.        

The noise portion covers residential, commercial, and City activities.  What about weekend hours for construction work?  There’s a long list of noise complaints in the Agenda statement.  The research was impressive and the discussion was thoughtful and reasonable. Find a link to the February 6, 2023, P&Z meeting here and the Agenda statement here.  P&Z will send a letter of recommendation to City Council on the proposed updates.     

There may be future P&Z proposed updates to the Light Industrial and Residential Multi-Family Mulberry District. 

Also under discussion at the February 9th P&Z meeting was the proposed update for the Comprehensive Plan Review, including the next steps identified in the October 11, 2022, joint Comprehensive Plan Workshop with City Council.  The City has requested bids for a qualified planning consultant to assist the City with updating the current Comprehensive Plan.
