Mr. Alderman inquired if storm detentions have been built.

Ms. Becht replied that detention requirements have been met with the original Master Plan.

 

Mr. Menzies requested Ms. Becht to speak on access between 7B and Orange Grove Road.

Ms. Becht informed that there was a road on the Master Plan, however should the Master Plan revision be approved; the road would be emergency access only.

 

Members of the audience asked Staff to clarify items on the proposed Master Plan revision (inaudible).

 

Ms. Chaucon, citizen of League City, expressed concern in regard to Orange Grove Road.

Mr. Carpenter informed that the plan was conceptual and was not to approve street improvements; however the proposed Master Plan revision would include dedicating Orange Grove Road for emergency access only.

 

Mr. Doan informed the audience that the application was not open for public hearing and requested questions to be written to staff.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if the future plat submittal for 7B would have the same verbiage as the notes contained on the Master Plan, and asked if the fire department required the proposed emergency access.

Ms. Becht replied the plat would be required to contain said notes and the dedication for emergency access stemmed from citizen concern and was approved by the Fire Marshall.

 

Mr. Schweinle inquired as 30 houses were required to have two points of access, how was it being circumvented as more than 30 houses were proposed.

Terms Defined, and create Section 125-140.Q.: Exterior Masonry Requirements. The proposed ordinance adds new use regulations along major commercial corridors and provides for an exterior masonry standard for new construction within the City.

Paul Menzies, Director of Planning and Development for the City of League City, presented for the City and City staff, and requested a recommendation to City Council be deferred until the next scheduled meeting.

 

Mr. Walding asked if changing the use would affect the masonry requirements.

Mr. Menzies replied a change of use would not affect masonry requirements although it would be subject to retail requirements as non-conforming could not replace non-conforming. He informed that a proposed non-conforming use would require a Special Use Permit.

 

Mr. Schweinle asked about the breakeven point provided in the ordinance of $215,000 for single family homes and how that compared to the average price of homes in League City.

Mr. Menzies replied the average price that he had seen was $300,000, however; the current home value would be researched.

 

Mr. Alderman asked for the background of the definition for non-retail sales use and if the City could vary from the definition.

Mr. Doan stated that the definition was derived from State law in regard to a collector of sales tax and the City could vary, however it made sense to use the provided definition.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if a physician wished to sell his office, would the prospective buyer be required to obtain a Special Use Permit prior to the sale.

Mr. Menzies replied the Special Use Permit requirement would apply to an existing building if the change was from retail sales tax generating to non-sales tax generating.

 

Mr. Alderman stated on the subject of rentals, it could be conceived that the City was taking property rights from existing owners by restricting who they may rent to in the future. He said he would prefer to see the restriction apply only to new development.

Mr. Menzies answered he would conduct research to determine impact.

Mr. Bindhammer asked should a retail sales tax generating business owner wish to sell their property to a non-sales tax generating business, if would it be subject to the new ordinance.

Mr. Menzies replied the change of use would require a Special Use Permit.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if manufactured homes were subject to masonry requirements.

Mr. Menzies replied that new manufactured homes would be subject after the effective date of the ordinance.

 

Mr. Alderman asked about differences in masonry standards in relation to zoning and structure.

Mr. Menzies replied that due to construction abilities, large buildings such as apartment complexes and industrial buildings would likely have lesser requirements in order to provide options for the architect.

 

The public hearing was opened at 7:14 PM.

The public hearing was closed at 7:15 PM.

 

Mr. Schweinle made a motion to postpone until the next scheduled meeting.

Mr. McCullough seconded the motion.

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