IV.              New Business

A.                 Consider and take action on a Master Plan Revision ? Westwood Subdivision, Revision # 3, generally located south of West Main Street (FM 518), north and south of League City Parkway and west of Maple Leaf Drive.

 

Mark Linenschmidt, Senior Planner for the City of League City presented and Staff recommended approval of the item, subject to a note being placed on the plat, which indicates that the commercial tracts must match the zoning map prior to the development.

 

Mr. Alderman asked what process the applicant would have to take to conform to the zoning map.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that they would have to go through a rezone process, which includes the applicant having a neighborhood meeting, submitting an application and a fee, and come before this board as a recommending body for City Council, and then go before City Council to render a decision.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if the applicant was waiting until they actually have a customer or purchasers of that property and/or when they know how it is going to be developed to come forward with the precise acreage and other information.

 

Jay Hyle, representative for Civil Concepts, stated that there was no actual use for the property now, and that the tracts are currently placeholders for commercial and green space.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that based on staff?s research, the original acreage came from the original master plan, which has since been changed four times.

 

Mr. Schweinle commented that he did not understand how the property was at two acres, adding .48 acres, and getting 3.96 acres, and how it was originally two acres.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that originally when staff did the geometry it was based on the zoning maps in the GIS system, and one came up as approximately 1.8 and the other came up as approximately 1.5, and that not having a plat causes difficulties to arise in getting the precise measurements.

 

Mr. Turner asked if the proposed master plan meets the zoning ordinance requirements.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated yes.

 

Mr. Wicker asked if the RCI (Roadway Connectivity Index) was new, and asked for clarification.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that it was not new, but is being used more with the continuing on, and/or new developments, and that the RCI was brought up in the City?s 2035 Comprehensive Plan and the board will see more of the RCI being included in other items.

 

Mr. Wicker asked what part of the code the RCI is stipulated in.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that the specific requirement is only mentioned in the Comprehensive Plan, but in this case, needed to be followed because the Westwood Subdivision, as part of the agreement, has a set of Westwood design standards, which requires it.

 

Mr. Linenschmidt commented that it was not a City code requiring it, but an agreement the developers made with the City.    

 

Mr. Alderman made a motion to approve Master Plan Revision ? Westwood Subdivision, Revision #3.

Mr. Bindhammer seconded the motion.

The motion passed unanimously by a vote of 7-0-0.

 

B.                 Consider and take action on a Preliminary Plat ? Westwood, Section 3, generally located south of West Main Street (FM 518), north of League City Parkway and west of Maple Leaf Drive.

 

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

 

Mr. Arnold made a motion to approve Preliminary Plat ? Westwood, Section 3.

Mr. McCullough seconded the motion.

The motion passed unanimously by a vote of 7-0-0.

 

V.                 Public Hearings

A.     Hold a public hearing and take action on Replat ? Great Garages Subdivision, a request to replat portions of blocks 19, 49, 79, 109 and 110 and all of blocks 20, 50 and 80 and the intervening abandoned right-of-ways of the Moore?s Addition Subdivision, generally located south of Olive Street and east of State Highway 3.

 

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

 

Mr. Alderman asked about the abandonment process, and if it had been completed.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated that it has been completed, and the process is a City Council process, in which the applicant submits a request through the Public Works Department, who then coordinate with the various utilities, including the City?s, to determine if any easements need to remain, and an appraisal is done, which is then given to City Council.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if City Council approved it.

Mr. Linenschmidt stated yes.

 

Teri Lera, representative for applicant, stated that the two lots on Highway 3 would be zoned General Commercial for a retail area, while the back area would be luxury garages, and there are currently going to be  eight large buildings, and each building will have 15 to 18 units that will be owned, as opposed to rented, for luxury vehicles. Ms. Lera also commented that there are currently luxury garages in the Spring/Woodland area and one being built on the west side of Pearland.

 

Mr. Schweinle asked if it was only for cars.

Ms. Lera stated no that it could be used for RVs, boats, and that there will also be a clubhouse located there.

 

Mr. Schweinle asked if junk could be stored there or would it be exclusively for vehicles.

Ms. Lera stated that the purpose was to be a man-cave and therefore someone could store junk.

 

Ms. Lera commented that it will be the same as storage facilities that are rented out, except these would be owned and could be used for anything except selling items.

 

The public hearing was opened at 6:26 P.M.

The public hearing was closed at 6:26 P.M.
