Commerce City Business Certol International wants to makes changes...

Certol International is requesting to rezone their property located at 6120 E. 58th Avenue from the current I-1 Light Intensity Industrial designation to a Planned Unit Development (PUD) designation.

Certol International is a manufacturer of medical, dental, and industrial infection control products. They have submitted this application so that the current use of their property is legal and conforming. The applicant purchased the property in 2003 and has been running their business at this site since that time. In order to continue their successful business operations, the applicant needs to move their existing storage tanks for Hydrochloric Acid and Alcohol outside the building and they hope to install additional tanks in the future as their business continues to grow. Certol blends these materials with other ingredients to produce some of their infection control and cleaning products. This process and their materials require a more intense industrial zone district (I-3) than the current designation (I-1) for the property. Rather than rezone the property to a straight zone district that would allow for their use plus a variety of more intense industrial uses, the applicant has submitted this PUD Zone Document that would generally keep the integrity of the I-1 zone district while allowing Certol’s operations. The Development Review Team (DRT) and Planning Commission felt that this request was a good compromise in order to meet the needs of the applicant and maintain the zoning integrity of the area.

    so is a PUD a short cut to get what you want?

  3. NO! A pud is good in this situation. It is a limit. It is a case specific solution. A win-win for both Commerce City and Certol.

  4. good to see Commerce City working with the business community.

  5. not really the same ball park as the arsenal, but point taken.
