Six Perkins Road homes to seek rezoning for office use
Merritt McDonald says he and a few other Iberville Terrace homeowners in the 11200 block of Perkins Road will soon file an application with the city-parish Planning Commission to change the zoning of six lots from A1-residential to neighborhood offices. McDonald, who owns two of the six lots at 11244 and 11266 Perkins Road, applied Aug. 16 to have the two lots rezoned. However, Planning Commission spokesman Ryan Holcomb says McDonald later noted that the application would be amended to include four more lots. The lots will be advertised with the applicants' zoning intentions and possibly go before the Planning Commission on Nov. 14, Holcomb says. "We'll process it once we get the additional information," Holcomb says. McDonald describes the rezoning as "very low-key" and necessary to ensure that he has tenants in the future. "Perkins Road has changed a lot in the last few years, and we need to make some changes so the property is more useful," McDonald says of the five-lane road his properties face. "If I lost my tenant today, I'd want to be able to do something with my property." The houses are less than a mile east of Bluebonnet Boulevard and are across the road from the Settlement at Willow Grove. McDonald says each home is about 35 years old and has 1,800 square feet. —Adam Pearson
