III. Public Hearings and Action Items from Public Hearings

Vice – Chair Owens asked the Commission if anyone had objections to presenting all of the cases on the agenda at the same time since they were all related to the same property.  Hearing no objections staff presented all three items at one time.

Mr. Morrison informed the Commission that in conjunction with Galveston County, the City Transportation Engineer has indicated that Calder Road is designed on the Capital Improvements Plan to be widened to 120 feet of right-of-way.  Mr. Morrison added that improvements to Calder Road are in the design phase now.

 

Mr. Morrison further informed the Commission that the actual right-of-way needed has not yet been determined and the traffic from this site alone does not trigger expansion of the roadway, staff supports dedication of 5 feet of right-of-way as opposed to 15 feet.

 

Mr. Landon asked why staff 5 feet right-of-way rather than 15 feet.

 

Mr. Morrison in response stated that the City’s charter requires a minimum of 60-feet for right-of-way.

 

Ms. Holmes added that the City Attorney & Traffic Engineer reviewed the traffic coming from the site.

 

Ms. Holmes added that there were concerns that the City would be required to pay the applicant for 15 feet right-of-way dedication. 

 

Mr. Morrison informed the Commission that minor plats are typically administratively approved. However, this plat is before the Commission for approval based on the application for a subdivision variance to the requirement that 15 feet of right-of-way be dedicated along Calder Road adjacent to the boundaries of the subject property. 

Mr. Morrison informed the Commission that the application is for a master site plan approval for a large scale recreational use located on Calder Road to be developed in two phases.  Since the property is located within the “CM” (Mixed Use Commercial) zoning district and being developed in phases, the Zoning Ordinance requires that the Commission approve the Master Site Plan for the use.  The first phase will include minimal improvements – an office with restrooms, security fencing, dirt mounds, and a gravel parking lot. 

 

Mr. Morrison further informed the Commission that in the second phase of this project, the property owner will be required to construct the parking lot to code which includes landscaping and pavement. The second phase will include construction of a 4,800-square-foot building to serve as an office, storage and customer staging area and more obstacles in the field area. 

 

Mr. Morrison stated that the Zoning Board of Adjustments granted variances that that permit the owner to defer the installation of the required parking lot screening and paved parking lot area to the second phase based upon the pending expansion of Calder Road.

 

Mr. Froeschner asked if the applicant would be required to have more parking spaces if the roadway is widened more than expected.

 

Mr. Morrison responded affirmatively.

 

A.        Hold  a public hearing and take action on a request for a variance to the requirement (Section 102-5.e.2, Subdivision and Development Regulations) that 80 feet of right-of-way be dedicated along Calder Road adjacent to the boundaries of a 2.95-acre tract zoned “CM” (Mixed Use Commercial), legally described as a portion of Lot 8, Block B of the Clear Creek Subdivision, generally located north of Big League Dreams Parkway and east of Calder Road with the approximate address being 2600 Calder Road.

 

Mr. Owens opened the public hearing at 6:20 pm. With no individuals to come forward Mr. Owens closed the public hearing at 6:20 pm.

 

Mr. Froeschner made a motion to approve a request for a variance to the requirement (Section 102-5.e.2, Subdivision and Development Regulations) that 80 feet of right-of-way be dedicated along Calder Road adjacent to the boundaries of a 2.95-acre tract zoned “CM” (Mixed Use Commercial). Mr. Landon seconded the motion.

 

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