Planning commissioners will consider Tuesday rezoning property near Hurd Avenue and the railroad tracks from light industrial to a planned unit development district.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at 20 S Littler Ave.

The property, owned by Steve Frakes, is on the north side of Hurd and an eighth of a mile west of the railroad tracks. The land to the north and east is the city's downtown regional water detention area.

Frakes wants to build a smaller project similar to the Old Town Lofts project, which is on the west side of Fretz Avenue and south of Edmond Road.

Eight units with 16 parking spaces are planned with one office building on the front of the property.

City Planner Bob Schiermeyer said the project would not be student or high-occupancy housing where the units are rented by the bedroom.

This project will need to meet the 10 percent landscaping requirement, Schiermeyer said.
