Paul Menzies presented for the City of League City.

 

The public hearing was opened at 6:28PM.

 

Lesley Lee, resident, spoke about having been opposed to the development originally but is very happy with the direction of the development now.  Her biggest concern is making sure there is still walkable space when the city expands the roads.

 

Chuck Difalco, resident, spoke how he is against General Commercial zoning adjacent to residential areas at large. While he doesn’t doubt the developers intent to develop to a higher standard, he remembers the 2008 bust where developers were ready to go one week and the next no longer able to develop. He is happy with the section E thinking that it protects the surrounding homeowners and is happy it follows the land and not the owner.

 

Sheila Lansig, director at the Perry YMCA, spoke on behalf of the YMCA and they do not oppose the development of the property. She is happy that the development has taken their feedback and feel reassured that safety is still a priority for her children at the YMCA as they play.

 

Paul Merta, resident, asked what was the original plan for the property, what was the reason for originally zoning it the way it was. He asked if the commission has looked into similar or associated developments in surrounding areas in relation to property values and crime. Unless commission has explored these and answered them to satisfaction, he opposes the PUD.

 

The public hearing was closed at 6:38 PM.

 

A discussion was held. 

 

Shane Hamilton motioned to approve Z14-06 (League City Pkwy/ Hobbs Rd PUD) subject to the following conditions:
