1256.13  AMENDMENTS TO CHANGE ZONING DISTRICTS OR ZONING CLASSIFICATIONS OF PROPERTIES.
     When a proposed amendment would result in a change of zoning classification of any property, the Planning Commission and Council should consider whether:
   (a)   The change in classification would be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan or other adopted plans and policies.
   (b)   The change in classification would be consistent with the intent and purposes of this Zoning Code.
   (c)   The proposed amendment is made necessary because of changed or changing conditions in the area affected, and if so, the nature of such changed or changing conditions.
   (d)   The uses that would be permitted on the property if it were reclassified would be compatible with the uses permitted on other property in the immediate vicinity. The Planning Commission may suggest conditions and restrictions on the uses that would be permitted on the property if it were reclassified in order to attain compatibility with the uses permitted on other property in the immediate vicinity.
   (e)   The uses that would be permitted on the property if it were reclassified would have an adverse environmental or health impact on the immediate surrounding area in terms of acceptable air, noise, light, or water quality standards.
   (f)   Adequate utility, sewer, and water facilities, and all other needed public services exist or can be provided to serve the uses that would be permitted on a property if it were reclassified.
   (g)   The amount of vacant land with the same zoning classification as proposed for the subject property, particularly in the vicinity of the subject property, and any special circumstances, if any, make a substantial part of such vacant land unavailable for development.
   (h)   The proposed amendment would correct an error in the application of this Zoning Code as applied to the subject property.
