Public Hearing Item

 

                    A.         Hold a public hearing and take action on a Revised Preliminary Plat – Victory Lakes      Commercial Section 1, Lots D-7, D-8, zoned “CM-PUD” (Mixed Use Commercial with a Planned Unit Development Overlay), generally located north of Victory Lakes Drive and east of Interstate Highway 45 Road.

 

LaShondra Holmes, Planning Manager came forward to present the staff report for this item.

 

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that a note on the plat indicates that a maximum of 3 access points will be permitted onto Walker Street.

 

Ms. Holmes added that an access has been provided to the car wash and would be shared with other properties on Town Center Drive.

 

Mr. Hullman the public hearing at 6:07 pm.  No individuals were present.

 

Mr. Hullman closed the public hearing at 6:08 pm.

 

Mr. Turner made a motion to approve Revised Preliminary Plat – Victory Lakes        Commercial Section 1, Lots D-7, D-8. Mr. Williams seconded the motion.

 

Mr. Edelman asked Ms. Holmes if staff sent out courtesy notices and commented that he noticed signs were not posted.  

 

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that notices were not sent out because this is an existing street and because there was a decrease in density.

 

Ms. Holmes added that signs are not posted for plats.

 

Mr. Koonce stated that he is concerned about the cuts that are going onto Walker Street. Mr. Koonce asked if there were any other known cuts.

 

Ms. Holmes added that the remaining two cuts will be shown on future subdivisions of this property.

 

Mr. Owens asked if the car wash was north of the access point.


Ms. Holmes responded affirmatively.

 

Ms. Holmes added that the access point would extend to Town Center Drive.

 

Ms. Holmes further informed the Commission that staff hopes that people will access Town Center Drive to get to Interstate Highway 45 as opposed to Victory Lakes Drive. However, we cannot deny access to Victory Lakes Drive.

 

Mr. Owens asked if the City could require the car wash to share access with the adjoining property to prevent another cut onto Walker Street and to prevent having a close distance between cuts.

 

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that the ordinance does specify the distance between cuts.

 

Ms. Holmes added that the applicant will have to submit another plat in the future to showing future subdivisions to ensure access to all development.

 

The motion was adopted by a vote of 6-1-0. Mr. Edelman was in opposition.

 

New Business

 

A.     Consider and take action on a Final Plat – Town Center Drive, zoned “CM-PUD” (Mixed Use Commercial with a Planned Unit Development Overlay), generally located generally located north of Victory Lakes Drive and east of Interstate Highway 45 Road.

 

LaShondra Holmes, Planning Manager came forward to present the staff report for this item.

 

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that the applicant only wants to record Town Center Drive.

 

Ms. Holmes added that further reasoning to get the plat approved is for a second point of access for the car wash and also for existing development along the road.

 

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that Council has to accept the street because it is public.

 

Mr. Koonce made a motion to approve Final Plat – Town Center Drive.

 

Mr. Turner seconded the motion.

 

The motion was adopted by a vote of 5-2-0.

 

Mr. Edelman and Mr. Bogus were both in opposition of the motion.

 

 

Other Business

 

A. Presentation and discussion by the Land Management Director on apartment demand, growth management and vesting.

Ms. Holmes informed the Commission that Land Management Director, Tony Allender would like for the Commission to table this item.

Mr. Bogus asked how the Commission could revise the PUD Ordinance permitting changes from 15% to 0%.

Ms. Holmes stated that a newspaper advertisement would need to be published before the item could go before the Commission.

Ms. Holmes added that the Commission and City Council would approve the changes.

 

Mr. Edelman made motion to table this item. Mr. Bogus seconded the motion.

The motion was adopted by a vote of 7-0-0.
