Wes Morrison, Senior Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Morrison stated that the application is for a subdivision of 9.78 acres of previously unplatted property into 23 single-family residential lots and 2 Restricted Reserves for landscape amenity. The typical lot size is proposed to be 9,000 square feet with typical lot dimensions of 60 feet in width and 140 feet in depth.

 

Mr. Morrison added that on June 21, 2010, the Planning and Zoning Commission approved the preliminary plat for this section. The only change from the preliminary plat to the final plat is that Melaga Lane as shown on the final plat was originally named Monterey Lane on the preliminary plat.

 

Mr. Rosen made a motion to approve Final Plat – Mar Bella, Section 9C. Mr. Hamilton seconded the motion.

 

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

 

E.      Consider and take action on a Final Plat – Autumn Lakes, Section 4, generally located south of Grissom Road and east of Bay Area Boulevard.

 

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that the applicant proposes to subdivide approximately 73.1 acres of unplatted property into 110 single-family residential lots and 8 Restricted Reserves for utilities, drainage, detention, landscape amenity and an HOA Park/Nature Preserve. Typical lot sizes for this section are 65 feet in width by 120 feet in depth with an average lot area of 7,800 square feet. This is the fourth of five sections in the Autumn Lakes Subdivision.

 

Mr. McKillip asked if the nature preserve would remain in its natural state.

 

 

The applicant, Munroe Kelsey responded affirmatively. Mr. Kelsey added that it was a part of the agreement with the Parks Board.

 

LaShondra Holmes, Planning Manager stated that the property owner will be responsible for park maintenance. Ms. Holmes further started that a distinction is made between the HOA and the City to make it clear that the park is maintained by the HOA and is not the City’s responsibility.

Mr. Rosen asked if there should be plans for hazard mitigation because he was concerned about the death of trees causing fire hazards.

 

Ms. Holmes in response stated that staff would have to enforce hazard mitigation as they would for any other property in the City.

 

Mr. Froeschner made a motion to approve Final Plat – Autumn Lakes, Section 4.

 

Mr. Rosen seconded.


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

 

  1. Consider and take action on a revision to an approved Private Streets Agreement – Peninsula at Clear Lake, for all streets within the Peninsula at Clear Lake Subdivision, located north of Farm to Market Road 2094 and west of Davis Road.

 

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner restated the staff report for this item.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that the application is to revise a previously approved Private Streets Agreement for the Peninsula at Clear Lake, Section 2 within the Peninsula at Clear Lake PUD. The approved private streets agreement was between the Developer and the City, which was to be transferred to the Homeowner’s Association at a later date, as is typical with private streets agreements. However, the property was foreclosed on and the current owner, a bank, wants to have the document recorded. Since the bank is not the developer, they cannot sign the approved document. The proposed agreement is to change the parties in the agreement to accurately reflect the current parties in the agreement. Exhibits ‘A’ and ‘B’ have not changed and will be recorded with the agreement.

 

Mr. Hamilton made a motion to approve the revision to an approved Private Streets Agreement – Peninsula at Clear Lake.

 

Mr. Rosen seconded the motion.

 

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