Why Critical: St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church occupies the site. Through the years the church has expanded by purchasing adjacent properties and vacating an alley and a portion of Ruckle Street. It is zoned SU-1 for religious purposes. The zoning code defines religious use as “a land use devoted primarily to divine worship together with reasonably related accessory uses, which are subordinate to and commonly associated with the primary use, which may include but are not limited to, educational, instructional, social or residential uses.”
The impact of future expansions upon the neighborhood should be carefully studied and kept to a minimum.
Why Critical: This intersection is currently zoned Special Use with categories to provide for government buildings (public safety), church, and library.
