Mr. Linenschmidt was available for questioning and the applicant was present.

 

Mr. Dugie – Does the applicant own the HEB and the small unplatted portion?

Mr. Linenschmidt – Yes.

 

Mr. Dugie – Does this meet all City ordinances?

The Chair explained the following guidelines in conduct of the hearing:

 

A statement of no longer than three minutes may be made on items of general relevance.

There will be no yielding of time to another person.

State law prohibits any member of the planning and zoning commission in making any statement or engaging in any dialogue without an appropriate agenda item being posted, in accordance with the Texas Open Meetings Law.

Comments should be directed at the commission instead of individual members.

Engaging in verbal attack, or comments intended to insult, abuse, or slander any individual shall be cause for termination of time privileges and expulsion from the meeting.

 

The public hearing was opened at 6:09 PM.

 

No one came forth to speak.

 

The public hearing was closed at 6:09 PM.

 

Mr. Wicker motioned to approve the replat.

The motion passed 3-0-0.

 

B.     Hold a public hearing and take action on a commercial replat, Hobbs Road Business Park, being a replat of part of Lot 31 in the Braskora Gardens Subdivision, being approximately 9.56 acres generally located south of FM 518 (West Main Street) and west of Hobbs Road.

 

Matt Grooms, Planner, presented for the City of League City.

 

The request is for a replat of approximately 9.56 acres, located west of Hobbs Road, north of Sunset Court, east of Newport Boulevard and South of FM 518.

The site is zoned general commercial and is surrounded by other general commercial properties.

 

To the South, the property is zoned RMF-1.2 Residential Multi-Family with a maximum density of 36 dwelling units per acre, which transitions to RMF-7Residential Single Family with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet.

 

A map of the area is shown.

 

To the north is the Cornerstone Commercial Plaza and Horizon Indoor Sports Center. To the west is the Brantley Commercial Park, to the south is the Oaks of League City Apartment and section1 of the Newport Subdivision, and east is Undeveloped General Commercial Property.

 

The proposed plat would subdivide two commercial lots from Lot 31 of the Braskora Gardens Subdivision.

Access is given to the properties from Hobbs Road, which is a 60 foot right-of-way.

 

It was confirmed, by the Engineering Department, that additional right-of-way dedication is not required along Hobbs Road for the property, and utilities are adequate for the site.

 

City Staff recommended approval of the plat because it meets subdivision and development ordinances, as well as state law.

 

City Staff and the applicant were available for questions.

 

Mr. Wicker – The advertisement for the public hearing stated 9.56 acres, but if you add the two tracts they equal about 5 acres.

 

Mr. Grooms – That was an error.

 

The public hearing was opened at 6:14 PM.

 

No one came forth to speak.

 

The public hearing was closed at 6:14 PM.

 

Mr. Dugie – To the City Attorney, does the advertisement of 9.56 acres stall us from making a vote on this?

Mr. Doan – We advertised for more acreage than it actually covers.

 

Mr. Doan – The identification of the tract is correct?

Mr. Grooms – Yes.

 

Mr. Doan – Then it is okay; the City gave more than enough notice.

 

Mr. Dugie motioned to approve the replat.

 

Mr. Wicker seconded the motion.

 

The motion passed 3-0-0.

 

V.                 Items Tabled and Subject to Recall

A.     Hold a public hearing and make a recommendation to City Council on Zone Change Application, Z15-11 (Texas Ave./Power St.), a request to rezone approximately 2.0 acres from “OS” (Open Space) to “RSF-20” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 20,000 square feet), legally described as a portion of the northwestern 231.3 feet of Lot 35 (35-3) of the League City Division B Subdivision, generally located south of Power Street, east of Dickinson Avenue and west of Texas Avenue, with the approximate address being in the 1000 block of Power Street and the 1000 block of Texas Avenue in League City, Texas. (PUBLIC HEARING IS CLOSED)

 

Mr. Linenschmidt presented for the City of League City.

The item was tabled at the June 1, 2015 Commission meeting. Commission requested to see a survey or a description of the property.

The City now has the metes and bounds for the property. That metes and bounds was required because the City had made several accountings for consideration of right-of-way on Texas Avenue and Powers Street, as well as for maintenance easements around the property associated with the drainage easement.

A copy of the metes and bounds was provided.

City Staff was available for questions.

 

Mr. Wicker – Will the City have it surveyed before they sell it?

 

Mr. Linenschmidt – It will not be surveyed because the metes and bounds go into the records.

 

Mr. Wicker – Are you saying a metes and bounds is the same as a survey?

Mr. Linenschmidt – No.

 

Mr. Wicker – The commission asked for a survey. Metes and bounds can be retrieved from an old map.

Mr. Linenschmidt – The recorded meeting minutes specified that the requirements were a survey and/or some sort of description of the property. We can use surveys or metes and bounds when we forward ordinances to City Council for their consideration, which is also reviewed and approved by the City Attorney. On June 9th, City Council did have an approval that declared this property surplus and directed Staff to sell it.

 

Mr. Wicker motioned to remove Z15-11 from the table.

 

Mr. Dugie seconded the motion.

 

The motion passed 3-0-0.

 

Mr. Dugie – How many lots would this allow for?

Mr. Linenschmidt – Roughly four lots.

 

Mr. Dugie motioned to approve zone change Z15-11.

 

Mr. Wicker seconded the motion.

 

The motion passed 3-0-0.
