Mr. Granata stated that a new election should be held because the commission is currently full and the previous election was only for an interim Chair and Vice Chair.

 

Nghiem Doan, City Attorney, stated that the commission could postpone the item or could pass on the item because it was not fully expressed by staff that the previous vote was interim, and a new vote could be done next year.

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner for the City of League City, presented, and City staff recommended approval subject to the following conditions: 1.) The Temporary Use Permit will be limited to the location and dates of the event, 2.) A revised, scaled site event exhibit will be provided for future events, 3.) To show the proposed fence line surrounding the event with access points marked, and 4.) Copies of food permits from all food vendors shall be provided before the start of the event.  

 

Paul Menzies, Director of Planning and Development, asked for clarification about this being the first year of them going through the Temporary Use Permit process, and what triggered that.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that there was no change in the ordinance, only change in personnel, and previous personnel did it one way, but the current staff wants to provide a better process for Temporary Use Permits and provide more safety for the event goers and the area, and this will be the first year the event is held in September and the first time they will be having the event twice in one year, as opposed to annually, and it will be the largest boat show in the area.

 

Mr. Menzies asked if this process stops with the Planning and Zoning Commission or is it a recommendation for the City Council.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that it stops at this commission.

 

Mr. Menzies asked if the sole authority, for the Temporary Use Permit, rest with this board.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated yes.

 

Mr. Wicker asked if the road on the side, which is closed, is part of the permit.

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner for the City of League City, presented, and City staff recommended approval.

VI.              Staff Comments

Richard Werbiskis, Assistant Director of Planning & Development, welcomed the new commissioner to meet with City staff, and commented that staff is updating Subdivision ordinances, this calendar year, and will be forming a subcommittee of interested parties within the City, representing the Commission and the development community, and other private parties interested, such as surveyors and developers to view the proposed changes to the ordinances and give feedback.

 

Mr. Menzies stated that there will be a lot of changes to the ordinances and that the as the population grows, the codes will have to reflect the changes, and be updated.

 

Mr. Arnold asked why a rezoning case, with Johnson Development, is going before the City Council for a second reading, even though this commission has not ruled on it.

Mr. Menzies stated that the Commission as it existed in March and April of 2015 recommended on that case and City Council did not take action on the item, in August of last year, so the last meeting the developer requested that action be taken on the item to rezone the property, to allow for duplexes, which was approved 4-0-2, however, to pass an ordinance requires two readings, so the item will come up again at City Council for a second reading.

 

Mr. Arnold asked if a zoning case comes to them and then goes to City Council.

Mr. Werbiskis stated that was correct.

 

Mr. Turner commented that his email was incorrect and gave his correct email.

 

VII.           Adjournment

Douglas Turner adjourned the meeting at 6:38 PM.
