Dausha Moore, Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Ms. Moore informed the Commission that the applicant has revised the Tuscan Lakes Master Plan to

reflect an 11.5-acre church site in an area designated as single-family residential, increase a commercial section (COM-7A) from 3.8 acres to 11 acres, and to show the street and lot configuration of single-family residential Section SF 50-4 SE.

  3. Show phase lines for Section 50-3.
  4. Provide the city engineer with an updated EDU Allocation Map showing original 68 EDU’s allocated for Special Use CGR area.

 

There was discussion regarding the area that was being designated as a church and the history of the lot sizes. After the discussion was held, Mr. Koonce made a motion to approve Master Plan Revision to a Planned Unit Development – Tuscan Lakes Revision #9 subject to staff’s conditions. Mr. Owens seconded the motion.

 

The motion was adopted by a vote of 6-2-0. Mr. Bogus and Mr. Rosen were in opposition of the motion.

Dausha Moore, Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Ms. Moore informed the Commission that the application is to subdivide 9.5 acres of previously unplatted property into 48 residential lots and 1 restricted reserve for “landscape/open space/ amenity”.

 

Mr. Moore added that the property is undeveloped with no trees and that the surrounding area is transitioning from rural to suburban and automobile oriented.

 

Ms. Moore stated water service is available to this site from the 24-inch water line along Louisiana Street.

 

Mr. McKillip made a motion to approve the Preliminary Plat – Tuscan Lakes, Section SF 50-4 SE.

 

Mr. Williams seconded the motion.

 

The motion to approve was adopted by a vote of 7-1-0. Mr. Bogus was in opposition of the motion.

 

 

C.        Consider and take action on a Preliminary Plat – Bay Colony Pointe West, Section 6, zoned “RSF-5-PUD” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 5,000 square feet with a Planned Unit Development Overlay), generally located north of FM 517 and west of Calder Road.

 

Rodney Glasper, Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Glasper informed the Commission that the applicant proposes to subdivide 10.1 acres of unplatted property into 43 single-family residential lots and 4 restricted reserves for landscape/open space/HOA amenity.

 

Mr. Glasper stated that a portion of this section was originally included in a previous preliminary plat of Bay Colony Meadows West, Section 4 that was approved by the Commission on October 1, 2007 by a vote of 4-0-0 with 3 members absent.

Mr. Glasper further stated that the original preliminary plat (including this section) contained 26.2 acres, 97 residential lots and 6 restricted reserves. The layout of the initial section has been reconfigured and the number of lots has been reduced due a change in the land plan layout.

Mr. Glasper added that the Commission approved Master Plan Revision #7 on September 21, 2009 showing that new configuration.

Mr. Glasper further informed the Commission that a revision to the master plan was recently approved to move the 0.6-acre park into Section 6. The park acreage was already there, but was not delineated to any specific section. This revision was approved administratively because there was no change to traffic circulation or density.

 

Mr. Williams made a motion to approve Preliminary Plat – Bay Colony Pointe West, Section 6. Mr. McKillip seconded the motion.

 

The motion was adopted by a vote of 7-1-0. Mr. Bogus was in opposition of the motion.

 

D.        Consider and take action on a Preliminary/Final Plat – Calder Road Elementary, zoned “RSF-7” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet), generally located north of Cross Colony Drive and west of Calder Road.

Rodney Glasper, Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Glasper informed the Commission that the applicant proposes to Subdivide 26.3 acres of unplatted property into one lot for an elementary school within the Dickinson Independent School District.

 

Mr. Glasper further informed the Commission that on November 3, 2008, the Commission recommended approval of a Special Use Permit (SUP08-07) for a school use on this site by a vote subject to conditions. City Council subsequently approved the SUP on December 9, 2008. The conditions were:

1.      Addition of a 50-foot buffer along the north and northwest property lines to help mitigate potential daytime noise from the proposed playing fields.

2.      Addition of pedestrian pathway to the west in the area shown as a future stub street.

3.      No vehicular access from the stub street to the west side of the property.

Mr. Glasper stated the site plan for the site was approved by the Development Review Committee in May of 2009.

 

Mr. Glasper further stated that access will be via Calder Road and that according to the Public Works Department, the City anticipates the need to design and install a right turn lane southbound on Calder and a left turn lane northbound. However, these improvements are not scheduled nor proposed to be added on the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).

LaShondra Holmes, Planning Manager noted that the Public Works Director has indicated that the city would indeed be making the improvements on Calder for the turn lane.

Mr. Hullman asked if the turn lanes were a result of a Traffic Impact Analysis.

Ms. Holmes, in response stated that a Traffic Impact Analysis was not done and that Engineering Department believes that the turn lanes were the maximum needed.

The motion was adopted by a vote of 8-0-0.
