[5A. Present interview with Evan Walker, GISD alumni, West Point Cadet.]

WE ARE GOING TO BEGIN OUR EVENING WITH OUR PRESENTATIONS AND PROCLAMATIONS AND WERE GOING TO START WITH ITEM 5A TO PRESENT AN INTERVIEW WITH EVAN WALKER, GISD ALUMNI, WEST POINT CADET. AND HAS RECEIVED AN INCREDIBLE HONOR RECENTLY WHICH WILL BE REVEALED IN THIS INTERVIEW.

>> THE UNITED STATES MILITARY AT WEST POINT AND IS ON TRACK TO GRADUATE WITH HONORS. HERE'S WHERE IT GETS MORE

[00:05:02]

IMPRESSIVE. EVIDENCE THAT HE RECEIVED A RHODES SCHOLARSHIP AT OXFORD UNIVERSITY ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS AND ELECTIVE SCHOLARSHIPS IN THE WORLD.

CONGRATULATIONS. YOU'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

WITH US. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME,

MA'AM. >> YOU GRADUATED FROM CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL IN 2017 AND YOU ARE THE FIRST ALUMNI TO RECEIVE THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP DESIGNATION.

YOU ATTENDED GIS D MAGNET PROGRAMS OR DO YOU THINK THEY

HELPED YOU PREPARE FOR SUCCESS? >> ABSOLUTELY.

EVEN FROM TIMBERLINE ACADEMY WHICH I ATTENDED AND STARTED THE INTRODUCTION TO THE MAGNET PROGRAM I LEARNED SO MANY USEFUL TOOLS AND HOW TO THINK ON A DIFFERENT LEVEL.

IT WASN'T JUST THE STANDARD EDUCATION BUT KNOWING THE QUICKER WAY TO DO MAPS AND THE TIPS AND TRICKS FOR WRITING AND READING REALLY LAID A GOOD FOUNDATION THAT CAN HELPED ME

GET TO WHERE I AM TODAY. >> YOUR MOTHER IS A 14 YEAR TEACHER AT GIS D. I HEAR SHE WAS AN EXAMPLE OF STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION WHILE GROWING UP. CAN YOU TELL US HER INFLUENCE

ON YOUR LIFE? >> YES MA'AM.

MY PARENTS DIVORCED WHEN I WAS SIX YEARS OLD.

I LIVED WITH MY MOM SINCE THEN AND VISITED MY FATHER.

SEEING MY MOTHER TAKE CARE OF MY BROTHER AND I DURING THE WEEK AND BALANCE SCHOOL WITH MAKING SURE WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED AND WE WANT, GETTING TO SOCCER PRACTICES, SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO TIME MANAGE AND BALANCE AND STILL HELP SOMEONE WHILE YOU CAN. THAT'S WHAT SHE TELLS ME.

ANYTIME ANYONE ASKED SOMETHING OF HER SHE DID WHAT SHE COULD TO PROVIDE HELP FOR THEM BUT SHE'S DEFINITELY A SERVANT AND THAT'S JUST IN WHAT SHE'S DONE BEING AT SAM HOUSTON MIDDLE SCHOOL AND AT GISD. NEXT WE ARE SO HONORED TO HAVE HER AT GISD. WONDERFUL.

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT ROWLETT.

HER FAVORITE MEMORY OR WHAT INFLUENCE THEY HAD ON YOU.

>> MY FAVORITE MEMORY IS THE OLD LIBRARY THAT USED TO BE IN DOWNTOWN. I REMEMBER THE SUMMER PROGRAMS AS A KID AND GOING WITH A COUPLE OF MY BUDDIES FROM KINDERGARTEN AND GETTING TO WATCH MOVIES AT NIGHT OR ATTEND PLAYS. AND, JUST LIBRARY IN GENERAL THAT WAS MY FAVORITE PLACE TO BE.

PLAYING OUTSIDE OF IT AND IN THE LITTLE STREAM THAT GOES RIGHT NEXT TO THE WATER TOWER DOWNTOWN ROWLETT IS MY FAVORITE

PLACE, STILL TO THIS DAY. >> YOU ARE A ROLE MODEL AND YOU ARE BREAKING DOWN RACIAL BARRIERS IN OUR COUNTRY.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR THOSE WANTING TO FOLLOW IN YOUR

FOOTSTEPS? >> YES MA'AM.

THE FIRST IS JUST DO YOUR BEST ALL THE TIME.

MY MOM TOLD ME YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE THE BEST BUT YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR BEST EVERY TIME. THAT'S THE PEOPLE YOU ARE HELPING AND EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO INVEST IN YOU DESERVE.

DOING YOUR BEST AND PUSHING YOURSELF EVERY SINGLE TIME TO REACH NEW HEIGHTS. THE SECOND THING I WOULD SAY IS TO PUT YOURSELF IN DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS AND BE OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. BEING IN THE WEST POINT IN MILITARY WAS DEFINITELY OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE.

I DON'T HAVE A FAMILY HISTORY OF SERVICE BUT THAT HAS ALLOWED ME TO GROW. BEING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE IS WHERE OPPORTUNITY LIES AND YOU CAN BE A BETTER VERSION OF YOURSELF TO HELP OTHERS AND DO SOME AWESOME THINGS.

JUST TRY NEW THINGS. >> RHODES SCHOLAR WILL BE A NEW

THING? >> YES MA'AM.

>> IT WILL PROBABLY BE OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

>> I'VE NEVER BEEN TO EUROPE SO I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

>> WE KNOW YOU WILL SHINE AND WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU AND WERE SO HAPPY TO SHARE THIS WITH THE CITIZENS OF ROWLETT THAT WE HAVE A RHODES SCHOLAR IN OUR MIDST.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MUCH SUCCESS TO YOU AND WHEN YOU COME BACK IN TOWN COME CS BECAUSE WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE

YOU IN PERSON. >> ABSOLUTELY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH MA'AM AND ALL YOUR HELP TO MAKE ROWLETT AN AWESOME PLACE TO BE AND TO B FROM.

I AM VERY PROUD. >> SEND THE WORD OUT THAT ROWLETT IS A GREAT PLACE. CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK

TO YOU IN EVERYTHING YOU DO. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH MA'AM.

>>. >> MAYOR: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ROLE MODEL. ROWLETT RESIDENT, EVAN WALKER, GISD, FIRST RHODES SCHOLAR FROM THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT. WE COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD THAN WE ARE OF HER. WHAT A SHINING LIGHT AND SO UNASSUMING. SHE HAD NO IDEA THAT HER LIFE

[00:10:01]

WOULD TAKE HER IN THIS DIRECTION AS A WEST POINT CADET. PRETTY AMAZING STUFF.

WE ARE REALLY PROUD OF HER. VERY GOOD TO HAVE THAT PRESENTATION. WE WILL GO TO, IF YOU ARE ON THE ZOOM MEETING THESE MAKE SURE YOU KNEW YOUR MICROPHONE.

I WAS ASKED TO REMIND EVERYONE OF THAT.

IF YOU ARE ON ZOOM GO AHEAD AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE MUTED AND GO AHEAD AND TURN YOUR VIDEO OFF UNTIL IT IS YOUR ITEM WE WOULD APPRECIATE THAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[5B. Presentation of proclamation designating the first week in March as COVID-19 Victims and Survivors Memorial Week.]

WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TO ITEM 5 WHICH IS A PRESENTATION OF A PROCLAMATION FOR THIS WEEK MARCH, PRESENTATION OF PROCLAMATION DESIGNATING THE FIRST WEEK OF MARCH AS COVID-19 VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS OF MEMORIAL WEEK.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN DONE ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS FAR AS RECOGNIZING EITHER YESTERDAY AS THE DAY OR THIS WEEK AS COVID-19 SURVIVORS MEMORIAL WEEK.

WE HAVE BEEN AT THIS FOR ABOUT A YEAR.

I THINK MARCH 9 WAS THE FIRST POSITIVE COVID CASE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. I KNOW MARCH 13 I WILL NEVER FORGET FRIDAY THE 13TH MARCH 13 THE THING STARTED SHUTTING DOWN. CERTAINLY IN DALLAS COUNTY.

THIS HAS BEEN A VERY SAD YEAR. A VERY SAD AND HARD YEAR.

SO WE WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT IT'S AND TO HONOR THOSE PTHAT WE HAVE LOST AND HONOR THOSE THAT HAVE SUFFERED GREATLY THIS YEAR WHETHER IT IS PHYSICAL ILLNESS OR SOMEONE IN THERE FAMILY OR MENTAL ILLNESS, DEPRESSION.

IT'S BEEN A TOUGH YEAR ON A LOT OF PEOPLE.VEN IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN PHYSICALLY IMPACTED YOUR SELF OR A FAMILY MEMBER, YOU'VE CERTAINLY BEEN MENTALLY IMPACTED BY THE SITUATION OVER THE LAST YEAR. THANK GOODNESS WE HAVE VACCINES THAT ARE HERE AND THEY ARE VERY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE.

THE TIMEFRAME TO GET THOSE VACCINES TO THE PUBLIC KEEPS REDUCING AND I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE WORKING EXTREMELY HARD LOCALLY, REGIONALLY STATEWIDE AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE WORLD TO STOP THIS THING IN IT'S TRACKS.

THANK GOODNESS FOR ALL OF THE YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC INNOVATION THAT LED US TO THIS POINT WHERE A VACCINE COULD BE DEVELOPED IN SUCH A PERIOD OF TIME. I WANT TO READ THIS PROCLAMATION. JUST ASK EVERYBODY TO SIT BACK AND REFLECT ON ALL OF US THAT HAVE BEEN AFFECTED WITH THIS THROUGH THIS LAST YEAR. WHEREAS THE FIRST WEEK IN MARCH 2021 HAS BEEN DESIGNATED AS COVID-19 VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS MEMORIAL WEEK. WHEREAS COVID-19 AS AN ILLNESS CAUSED BY A VIRUS THAT CAN TRANSMIT FROM PERSON TO PERSON AND HAS SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD CREATING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC THAT HAS HAD CATASTROPHIC EFFECTS ON HUMAN LIFE, OUR COMMUNITY AND ECONOMY. WHEREAS TO MITIGATE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 OBSERVANCE OF PUBLIC HEALTH ORDERS TO SOCIAL DISTANCE AND STAY-AT-HOME HAS CREATED CHALLENGES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES, WORKERS AND SCHOOLS WHICH ARE TRYING TO COMPLY LIMITED RESOURCES. SCHOOL DISTRICTS, TEACHERS, STUDENTS AND PARENTS ARE GRAPPLING WITH THE CHALLENGE OF DISTANCE LEARNING. AND WORKING TO PREVENT ANY LEARNING LOSS DUE TO NOT BEING IN PERSON.

WHEREAS LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS, PUBLIC SERVANTS AND OTHERS HAVE TAKEN BOLD ACTIONS TO PROTECT RESIDENTS, SUPPORT TO STRUGGLE LOCAL ECONOMIES AND FIND INNOVATIVE WAYS TO PROVIDE SERVICES. IN RESPONSE TO THE RAPID SPREAD OF COVID-19 AND STAY-AT-HOME ORDERS ESSENTIAL WORKERS HAVE STEPPED UP TO PROVIDE CRITICAL PSERVICES TO HELP PROTECT OUR COMMUNITIES AND SAVE LIVES. SACRIFICING THEIR OWN HEALTH AND SAFETY. WHEREAS COVID-19 HAS HAD A DISPROPORTIONATE IMPACT ON LOW INCOME COMMUNITIES AND IMMUNITIES OF COLOR, EXACERBATING INEQUITIES ALREADY

[00:15:04]

PRESENT IN OUR SYSTEMS THAT WE MUST ADDRESS AS A NATION.

PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDANCE AND POLICIES TARGETED PREVENTION SUCH AS SOCIAL DISTANCING, WEARING MASKS IN PUBLIC AND STAYING HOME HELP MITIGATE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, PREVENT ILLNESS AND LESSEN THE BURDEN ON INDIVIDUALS AND SOCIETY.

THE SYMPTOMS AND SEVERITY OF COVID-19 CAN VARY DRAMATICALLY BY INDIVIDUAL AND THE LONG-TERM HEALTH IMPLICATIONS FOR SURVIVORS IS LARGELY UNKNOWN. AS MANY SURVIVORS SUFFER WITH DISEASE LONG AFTER THEY NO LONGER TEST POSITIVE.

WHEREAS MORE THAN 2.3 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE AND OVER 500,000 IN THE UNITED STATES HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES DUE TO COVID-19. AND IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT ALONE 52 LIVES HAVE LOST TO THIS DEADLY VIRUS.

EACH LIFE LOST TO COVID-19 MATTERED AND LEAVES A HOLE IN THE HEART OF LOVED ONES, FAMILY MEMBERS AND OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY. NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT THE CITY OF ROWLETT DESIGNATES THIS WEEK THE FIRST WEEK OF MARCH 2021 AS COVID-19 VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS MEMORIAL WEEK. IN REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES AND IN HONOR OF THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO SUFFER FROM THE IMPACT OF THE VIRUS.

THANK YOU FOR THAT MOMENT. WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TO ITEM 5C

[5C. Presentation of proclamation recognizing the week of March 1-5, 2021 as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Rowlett.]

WHICH IS A PRESENTATION OF PROCLAMATION RECOGNIZING THE WEEK OF MARCH FIRST THROUGH FIFTH 2021 AS SEVERE WEATHER

AWARENESS WEEK IN ROWLETT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THANK YOU MAYOR. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH DALLAS OFFICE HAS DESIGNATED MARCH FIRST THROUGH FIFTH THIS YEAR AS SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK.

SEVERE WEATHER AFFECTS US ALL YEAR LONG.

IN FACT NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS IS NO STRANGER WHEN IT COMES TO DISASTERS OF MANY KINDS. DURING SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK WE HIGHLIGHT PACIFIC HAZARDS THAT ARE COMMON IN NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS AND PROVIDE YOU WITH PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION AND HELPFUL LINKS TO RESOURCES.

LIGHTNING, SEVERE STORMS, TORNADOES, FLOODING, HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND ALSO THREATENED OUR AREA DURING THE YEAR.

KING PREPARED IS A PERSONAL DECISION.

WE ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS TO BE PREPARED BY HAVING A DISASTER OR EMERGENCY KIT.

KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAZARDS THAT THREATEN OUR AREA AND HAVING A PLAN IN CASE YOU NEED TO ACT.

I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT ACKNOWLEDGE OUR HARD-WORKING OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT. ROWLETT IS FORTUNATE TO HAVE TWO OF THE BEST EMERGENCY MANAGERS IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.

ED BELL TERRACE AND HANNAH MYERS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COUNTLESS HOURS THAT YOU PUT IN TO HELP THE CITY BE SAFER, STRONGER AND BETTER PREPARED FOR ALL EMERGENCIES AND DISASTERS. AND ALSO, TO THINK THE ORGANIZATIONS LIKE ROWLETT CITY COUNCIL AND THE ROWLETT COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS ACTIVE DISASTER OR CO-AD FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF SUPPORTIVE NESTS IN HELPING US BE READY IN OUR COMMUNITY. HERE IS THE PROCLAMATION.

WHEREAS THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH DALLAS OFFICE HAS DESIGNATED MARCH 1-5, 2021 AS SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK. WHEREAS THE PURPOSE OF THIS DESIGNATION IS TO HELP EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ON A VARIETY OF ALL HAZARDS AND HAZARDS SPECIFIC PREPAREDNESS ACTIVITIES WHERE AS THE CITY OF ROWLETT DUE TO SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS CAUSING SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND LOSS OF LIFE RECOGNIZES THE RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SEVERE EATHER PREPAREDNESS AWARENESS. AND, WHEREAS THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL POST SHAREABLE DAILY PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION ON IT'S OUTREACH PLATFORMS. WHEREAS THE CITY OF ROWLETT WILL SHARE THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE POST AND SUPPLEMENT THOSE WITH ROWLETT SPECIFIC INFORMATION. NOW THEREFORE, I, WHITNEY LANING ON BEHALF OF MAYOR DANA-BASHIAN AND THE CITY COUNCIL DO PROCLAIM MARCH ONE THROUGH FIVE 2021 AS SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK BY ALL RESIDENTS, BUSINESSES AND VISITORS TO THE CITY OF ROWLETT.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU SO MUCH WHITNEY FOR THAT TIMELY

[00:20:01]

INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT THIS TIME OF YEAR. AFTER WE JUST GOT THROUGH THAT LAST SEVERE WEATHER EVENT. YEAH.

WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM 5D WHICH IS UPDATE FROM THE CITY COUNCIL

[5D. Update from the City Council and Management: Financial Position, Major Projects, Operational Issues, Upcoming Dates of Interest and Items of Community Interest.]

AND MANAGEMENT: FINANCIAL POSITION, MAJOR PROJECTS, OPERATIONAL ISSUES, UPCOMING DATES OF INTEREST AND ITEMS OF COMMUNITY INTEREST.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY UPDATES? SPEAK TO I WANTED TO REMIND OUR PUBLIC THAT AFTER THE DISASTER, THE WEATHER-RELATED DISASTER FROM A WEEK OR SO AGO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS DECLARED DALLAS COUNTY AMONG OVER 100 COUNTIES IN THE STATE OF TEXAS AS A NATIONAL DISASTER. AS A RESULT THERE ARE ADDITIONAL FUNDS FOR OUR RESIDENT THAT THEY CAN APPLY FOR. WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO GO TO WWW.DISASTER ASSISTANCE STOCK OF.

THEY HAVE BOTH GRANT FOR INDIVIDUALS AND HOUSEHOLD ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS. THEY ALSO HAVE LOANS AVAILABLE BOTH TO RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES.

THERE CAN BE CONSIDERABLE FUNDS AVAILABLE.

FOR EXAMPLE, FOR AN SBA A MAX OF TWO $200,000 FOR HOMEOWNERS TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THEIR PRIMARY RESIDENCE.

40,000 FOR A HOMEOWNER OR A RENTER TO REPLACE DAMAGED PERSONAL PROPERTY AND A MAX OF $2 MILLION FOR BUSINESSES.

THIS IS DEFINITELY WORTH IT. THEY WILL NOT COVER INSURED DAMAGE BUT THEY CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR DEDUCTIBLE.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. GO TO WWW.DISASTER ASSISTANCE STOCK OF. YOU CAN ALSO CALL 1-800 ã61 ã 3362. ONE OTHER POINT I WANT TO MAKE IS THAT THE CITY OF ROWLETT IS ALSO HELPING OUR RESIDENTS WITH WATER LEAKS THAT OCCUR DURING THE STORM.

WE KNOW WE CUT OFF AT LEAST 600 ACCOUNTS AT THE OWNER'S REQUEST TO HELP THEM WITH THAT. WE FULLY EXPECT THAT WE HAD OVER 1000 CUSTOMERS WITH WATER LEAKS BASED ON THAT EXPERIENCE.

SOME WE'RE ABLE TO TURN OFF THEIR OWN WATER.

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE CITY WILL ADJUST YOUR ACCOUNT UP TO 100 PERCENT OF THE ABNORMAL USAGE FROM A WATER LEAK. YOU CAN APPLY FOR THAT ONLINE.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COME IN PERSON.

IF YOU DO THAT YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR REPAIR INVOICE AND ANY RECEIPT OR PICTURES TO SHOW PROOF THAT YOU HAD A LEAK AND EMAIL IT TO UTILITIES AT ROWLETT.COM.

YOU CAN ALSO BRING IT TO OUR OFFICE ON MAIN STREET.

THANK YOU MA'AM. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU BRIAN TO REITERATE HE TALKED ABOUT THE SBA LOAN PIECE BUT THERE IS INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE WITH THIS DISASTER.

YOU SAID THAT I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT IT AGAIN THAT GRANT ARE AVAILABLE THAT ARE NOT LOANS.

SO, MAKE SURE IF YOU HAVE DAMAGE IF IT'S INSURED YOUR DEDUCTIBLE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET HELP WITH THE DEDUCTIBLE.

MAKE SURE YOU APPLY. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

COUNCILWOMAN BROWN? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT KEEP ROWLETT BEAUTIFUL WILL BE CONDUCTING A CLEANUP ON SATURDAY THE 24TH. YOU CAN SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER.

THEN ON MAY 8 WE WILL BE HAVING OUR DOCUMENT SHREDDING AND ELECTRONICS RECYCLING EVENTS ALONG WITH LIFE MESSAGE AND THAT WILL BE A DRIVE-THROUGH EVENT AT ROWLETT PARKING LOT.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS THAT ARE IN PLACE AT THE TIME WILL BE EXERCISE FOR BOTH EVENT. IT WILL BE SAFE AND FUN AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE COMMUNITY.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ANY OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS ANYONE? ALL RIGHT. WE WILL MOVE TO THE NEXT ITEM

[6. CITIZENS’ INPUT]

ON THE AGENDA WHICH IS ITEMS NUMBER 6 WHICH IS OUR CITIZEN INPUT. TO PROVIDE COMMENT FOR THE MEETING, PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO CITIZENINPUT@ROWLETT.COM BY 3:30 P.M. THE DAY OF THE MEETING. PLEASE STATE WHETHER YOUR COMMENT IS REGARDING A SPECIFIC AGENDA ITEM OR A GENERAL COMMENT TO THE COUNCIL. YOUR COMMENT WILL BE READ INTO THE RECORD DURING THE MEETING (MUST BE WITHIN THE 3-MINUTE TIME LIMIT). THERE WILL BE NO COMMENTS TAKEN DURING THE MEETING.

WE DO HAVE FOR CITIZEN INPUT TONIGHT FOR THIS GENERAL AREA

[00:25:01]

IN THE EVENING AND WE HAVE SOME FOR SPECIFIC AGENDA ITEMS. MY NAME IS LAURA SCOLA AND I LIVE ON HIDDEN VALLEY CIRCLE.

I AM REACHING OUT TO COUNSEL TO SEEK SUPPORT IN SEVERAL MATTERS THAT HAVE COME TO MY ATTENTION. AS A CONCERNED CITIZEN WITH THE CITY OF ROWLETT I CARE ABOUT THE CITY AND THE SUPPORTING INFRASTRUCTURE. AS A TAXPAYER I AM LOOKING FOR BETTER MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS SO THAT MONEY IS NOT WASTED ON REWORK AND SAFETY ISSUES ARE CONSIDERED AND ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY. FOR EXAMPLE I OBSERVED THAT LAKEVIEW PARKWAY HAS NO STREETLIGHTS.

IT'S ONE OF THE FEW MAJOR THOROUGHFARES IN THE AREA THAT IS NOT LIGHTED. THE STREETLIGHTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN INSTALLED WHEN LAKEVIEW PARKWAY WAS WIDENED YEARS AGO.

IN FACT THIS IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN IGNORED YEAR AFTER YEAR. THE OTHER DAY I WITNESSED A PEDESTRIAN CROSSING A BUSY INTERSECTION AND HE WAS ALMOST HIT BY A CAR BECAUSE THE LIGHTING WAS SO BAD.

THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS ARE SUPPORTED ON A CHEAP SPAN WIRE INSTEAD OF BEING MOUNTED ON NICE LIGHT STANDARDS.

THIS JUST LOOKS BAD. ANOTHER ITEM OF CONCERN IS THE PUBLIC WORKS PAYMENT REPAIR ON MILLER ROAD WAS INADEQUATE AND THE QUALITY OF PAYMENT REPAIR WHEN IT WAS FIRST POURED THIS ELEMENT STRIVING COST INTO THE PROJECT.

THIS FINISH WAS ROUGH AND DID NOT MEET THE INDICATIONS.

APPARENTLY THE QUALITY OF WORK WAS NOT CHECKED AND NOW THEY ARE TEARING IT OUT OF THE AREA AGAIN.

IT GREATLY IMPACTS THE AREA AND THE SUBDIVISION AS A WHOLE.

NOT TO MENTION THE COST OF DOING THE WORK.

MAYBE BECAUSE SO MUCH HAS BEEN PAID ON REWORK THERE IS A FEELING SECTION IN THE CITY. IGNORING THIS DOES NOT MAKE THE PROBLEM GO AWAY BUT DOES INCREASE THE COST OF REPAIR WHEN THEY ARE MADE.HIS CONTINUES TO BE A CANCER THAT CONTINUES TO GROW. THE CITY HAS MADE LITTLE EFFORT TO DECREASE THE STUDY RISING EFFECT OF THE STREET.

THE STREETS ARE SO ROUGH THAT THEY BECOME IMPASSABLE.

PAVEMENT PATCHES ARE ROUGH AND THE CITY SHOULD GRIND TO REPLACE ALL ROUGH PATCHES. MAJOR THOROUGHFARES HAVE NOT BEEN STRIPED IN YEARS. THIS IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE.

THIS PORTRAYS THE IMAGE AND QUALITY OF ROWLETT AND IT WOULD BE EMBARRASSING IN AREAS. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL THAT THE ROWLETT PLAN WOULD SHOW SOUTH AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICA CROSSINGS. MANY THOROUGHFARES ARE SHOWN TO BE TWO LANE AND SOME ARE SHOWN TO BE DEAD IN STREETS. WOULD APPRECIATE ATTENTION ON THESE MATTERS AS A TAXPAYING CITIZEN.

I FEEL PRESSURE HAVING TO SAY THESE WITHIN THREE-MINUTE.

THE NEXT LETTER IS FROM TERRY MILLIKEN.

I WANT TO ADDRESS COUNSEL ON A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE.

GOVERNMENTAL TRANSPARENCY BEFORE I RETIRED FOR 40 YEARS I WAS A REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL CIVIL ENGINEER WHO SPECIALIZED IN CONSULTING. OVER THE LAST FIVE MONTHS I'VE ENCOUNTERED SEVERAL AREAS WHERE THE CITY HAS NOT BEEN TRANSPARENT. IN THE LAST 40 YEARS I'VE NEVER ENCOUNTERED SUCH STONEWALLING AND DECEPTION COMING FROM A MUNICIPALITY. THE DETOUR PLAN DURING THE RECENT UTILITY CONSTRUCTION. IT HAS SWITCHING TRAFFIC FROM THE WESTBOUND LANE AND THE DETOURS WERE VERY CONFUSING AND REPRESENTED A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE.

PUBLIC WORKS PERSISTED THAT THEY WERE IN COMPLIANCE.

IN MY CONTINUING? THE PUBLIC WORKS INSISTED THEY WERE COMPLYING WITH THE ENGINEERS TRAFFIC AND CONTROL PLAN AND COULD NOT FIX IT. THEY SAID THAT THEY WERE COMPLYING THE CITY PLAN FOR DETOURS.

I GOT A COPY OF THE ENGINEERS TRAFFIC CONTROL PLAN.

NONE OF THE CLAIMS MADE WERE OF STATE STANDARDS.

LATER UNDER PRESSURE THEY SAY THEY HAD ADDED IN THE SIGNAGE REQUIRED BY THE DETOUR PLAN AND STATE STANDARDS.

THAT WASN'T TRUE EITHER. THEN PUBLIC WORKS REPEATED THE ERRONEOUS CLAIMS TO THE CITY MANAGER AND MAYOR WHO BASED ON WHAT THEY WERE TOLD ME THE SAME ERRONEOUS CLAIMS TO ME.

NO ONE BOTHERED TO CLAIM IF THE PUBLIC WORKS CLAIMS WERE TRUE AND I HAD ASKED. ITEM NUMBER 2. VILLAS AT LONG CREEK. NEXT I INQUIRED ABOUT THE SUBDIVISION DESIGN TO SEE IF THE DEVELOPER WAS MEETING WITH THE STANDARDS WHICH DUE TO THE STANDARDS I SUSPECTED.

AFTER FILING A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST I FINALLY RECEIVED A COPY OF THE FINAL PLANS.

WITHOUT THE FREEDOM FILING THE CITY WOULD NOT EMAIL THEM TO ME. MORE STONEWALLING.

NOT EVEN TEXAS DOT IS THAT OPAQUE AND THEY WILL READILY

[00:30:01]

SEND YOU WHAT YOU REQUEST. AFTER REVIEWING THE PLANS I FELT MOST OF THE DESIGN APPEARED TO BE CORRECT EXCEPT FOR ONE SPECIFIC DRAINAGE PROBLEM.

I GAVE COMPUTER RUNS IN THE FEELING AND DRAIN DESIGN AND IN QUITE DETAIL. I FOUND THE DEVELOPER WAS NOT COMPLYING WITH CITY ORDINANCES CONTRARY TO WHAT I WAS TOLD.

THE CITY TOTALLY IGNORED MY CALCULATIONS AND WOULD NOT TELL ME WHERE MY CALCULATIONS WERE WRONG.

THEY REFUSED TO TALK ABOUT IT AND ASSERTED THAT YOU ARE NOT THE PROJECT ENGINEER. MORE STONEWALLING.

IF I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE I GUESS I WILL HELP BAIL THE WATER OUT OF THE HOMES FROM THE SUBDIVISIONS WHEN THEY FLOOD WHICH WILL HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER.

I NOTICED THE SURFACE REPAIR ON MILLER ROAD WAS EXTREMELY ROUGH. FIRST THE CITY CLAIMS THAT THE SURFACE WAS AT NET SPECIFICATIONS.HEN WE WENT ON SITE ¦

>> MAYOR: I GET CUT OFF AT THREE-MINUTE.

THE NEXT LETTER IS FROM PATTY SAYYID.

I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN ROWLETT FOR 5 YEARS.

I'VE ATTENDED THE CITIZENS ACADEMY AND VOLUNTEERED NEARLY TWO YEARS ON THE FHC BOARD. I'M NOT OPPOSED TO HIGH DENSITY HOUSING. HOWEVER I AM DEEPLY TROUBLED BY THE CONSTANT ATTEMPTS BY DEVELOPERS TO REZONE LAND PARCELS TO HIGH DENSITY RESIDENTIAL'S INTO THE AREAS BYPASSING CHANGES TO THE PLAN. UNDERSTANDING THE RECENT REZONING ATTEMPTS I HAVE READ THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE PLANS.

THE CITY LEADERS RECOGNIZE THAT A FOCUS ON OPEN GOVERNMENT, TRANSPARENCY AND CITY ENVIRONMENT DELAY INVOLVEMENT REACHING THE FULL RANGE OF THE CITIES DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES BUILDS TRUST AND CONFIDENCE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. THAT IS FROM THE 2013 STRATEGIC PLAN OF 2024. BECAUSE OF THE CONSTANT REZONING ATTEMPTS I'M LOSING MY TRUST IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

REZONING CANNOT BE DONE IN THE PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR COMP PLAN AMENDMENTS. DOES THIS PROCESS MERIT ALL TRANSPARENCY STARS FOR WHICH THE CITY OF ROWLETT WAS SO PROUD? IF CITIZENS ARE NOT INCLUDED BY THE ABLE TO ATTEND AND SPEAK AT PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR COMP PLAN AMENDMENTS THERE IS NO PROVISION FOR DIRECT INVOLVEMENT IN LOCAL POLICY FORMULATION AND DECISION-MAKING WHICH IS ON PAGE 25 ON THE 2013 STRATEGIC PLAN.

STATE LAW GIVES COMMUNITIES THE POWER TO REGULATE THE USE OF LAND BUT ONLY SUCH REGULATIONS ARE BASED ON A PLAN THE 2009 COMP PLAN.N ORDER TO MINIMIZE POTENTIAL CONFLICTS BETWEEN MANAGING GROWTH IN AN ORDERLY MANNER BOTH PRIMARY OBJECTIVES OF THE PLAN REZONING HEARING SHOULD NOT BE DONE IN LIEU OF COMP PLAN AMENDMENTS. WE HAD MANY STEPS TO COME UP WITH A NEW PLAN. FOCUS GROUP MEETINGS JOINT COMMITTEE MEETINGS ONLINE SURVEY WHICH HE COMPLETED WE SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY TO TOGETHER THIS PLAN.

THE COMMUNITY VISION ON PAGE 33 SAYS BALANCE ROWLETT GROWTH WHILE MAINTAINING ROAD AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

IT IS STILL RELEVANT IN EXISTING NEIGHBORHOODS AND CURRENT ZONING SHOULD BE VALUED.

GREAT ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO FUTURE LAND USE PLAN IN MAKING THESE CHANGES. IN THE 2019 COMP PLAN.

THE COMPREHENSIVE AND STRATEGIC PLANS ARE IMPORTANT AND SIDESTEPPING THEM IS NOT TRANSPARENT.

IN GENERAL SHOULD BE TAKEN AS AN EXTREME MATTER.

GIVE ME JUST A SECOND. IN OUR LAST LETTER THIS IS FROM JR SCOLA. AT 3803 HIDDEN VALLEY CIRCLE.

VERY CONCERNED WITH THE WAY THAT THE CITY HAS BEEN HANDLING COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATES. THE PURPOSE AS DESCRIBED BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE AND TEXAS SUPREME COURT IS PROTECTING THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY ALLOWING PGROWTH AND PREVENTING SPOT ZON AND IF IT. BY DOING SO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ENCOURAGES INVESTMENT BY A SIGNIFICANT SOURCE OF RISK BY INVESTORS. IT PROTECTS LONG-TERM INVESTMENTS TO NEIGHBORHOODS BY THE ACTUAL CITIZENS.

IMPORTANTLY IT PROVIDES A DEGREE OF PROTECTION FROM ELECTED OFFICIALS BY PRIVATE DEVELOPERS.T IS MUCH HARDER FOR UNSCRUPULOUS INVESTORS TO PUSH THROUGH SPOT ZONING WHEN THE CITY HAS A COMPREHENSIVE VISION VOTED ON BY THE ACTUAL

[00:35:06]

CITIZENS. IN CONVERSATIONS WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY DAVID BERMAN HE AGREES THAT REZONING SHOULD BE DONE IN THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN SO WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO WASTE THE TIME OF THE CITY STAFF AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS AND CITIZENS OF ROWLETT TO REPEATEDLY NOT TO CONSIDER NON-ZONING REQUEST.

THIS SHOULD BE DISMISSED UNTIL THE PROPOSAL IS COMPLIANT.

INSTEAD OUR CURRENT PROCESS IS TO CONSIDER A GIVEN REZONE REQUEST AND ISOLATION AND THEN BACK UPDATE SINGLE LOTS IN THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP VIA A HIDDEN ORDINANCE.

IN MY IN MY RESEARCH TEXAS HAS OVERWHELMINGLY REVIEWED THIS AS SPOT ZONING. OUR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATES MUST ALLOW FOR CITIZEN INPUT. STATE LAW IS CLEAR THAT COMPANY IS A PLANS MUST BE UPDATED AFTER PUBLIC HEARING AND REVIEW OF THE COMMISSION. THE CITY ATTORNEY SAYS THAT THIS IS PERMISSIVE AND I AGREE EXCEPT THAT THE CORRECT PERMISSIVE AS FOLLOWS. THIS CAN BE PUBLIC HEARING AND IT CAN BE AMENDED. ROWLETT CURRENTLY HOLDS NO PUBLIC HEARING OF COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENTS.

IN HIS INTERPRETATION THE MISSION OF THE ZONING REVIEW ARE EQUIVALENT TO SUGGESTIONS. STATE LAW ALSO STATES THAT THE PROCEDURES FOR AMENDING A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THIS CLAUSE ALLOWS ESTABLISHMENTS NOT FOR AMENDING THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IS SELF.

CURRENTLY THE PUBLIC IS NEVER MADE AWARE THAT A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IS BEING VOTED ON. IT'S NEVER ON THE AGENDA RATHER THE UPDATES ARE HIDDEN IN THE MULTIPAGE PACKET.

THE CITIZENS MUST HAVE ACCESS TO THE CURRENT COMPANY IS A PLAN. ACCORDING TO THE CITY ATTORNEY THE PUBLIC CANNOT ACCESS THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BY FIRST GETTING A COPY OF THE COMPANY IS A PLAN UPDATE AND THEN SIFTING THROUGH LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF PAGES OF ORDINANCE TO FIND THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT AND ONE BY ONE PIECING THEM TOGETHER INTO A FUTURE LAND USE MAP.

IT'S NOT HARD TO LOOK AROUND AT OTHER NEARBY COMMUNITIES AND REALIZED THAT ROWLETT PROCESS IS WRONG.

CLEARLY APPRECIATE ANY LETTERS WE GET FROM THE PUBLIC.

IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR PROCESS.

WE CAN'T DISCUSS THEM DURING THE MEETING AND I WOULD ASK THAT THE STAFF TAKE THESE FOUR LETTERS AND MAKE SURE THEY ADDRESS THESE CONCERNS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER WITH COUNSEL.

I WILL ABSOLUTELY SAY THAT MANY OF THESE HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED THIS IN THE PUBLIC MEETING BUT THERE ARE A COUPLE THAT WE WOULD LIKE BETTER UPDATES ON. I WILL TURN THIS OVER TO THE STAFF AFTER THE MEETING. THANK YOU FOR THE INPUT

REGARDING A REQUEST BY ADAM SHIFFER, SKORBURG COMPANY, ON BEHALF OF PROPERTY OWNER CORNERSTONE ASSEMBLY OF GOD, TO REZONE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL (SF-10) DISTRICT AND LIMITED OFFICE (O-1) DISTRICT TO PLANNED DEVELOPMENT (PD) DISTRICT FOR SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL (SF-5) USES AND APPROVAL OF A CONCEPT PLAN TO DEVELOP 99 SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES. THE APPROXIMATELY 21.74-ACRE SITE IS LOCATED IN THE WILLIAM CRABTREE

[00:40:01]

ABSTRACT, WEST OF DALROCK ROAD AND APPROXIMATELY 750 FEET SOUTH OF SCHRADE ROAD, IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT, DALLAS COUNTY, TEXAS. IS THAT MISS MULLEDAD?

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU. >> SPEAKER: COUNSEL, WE HAVE A REQUEST FOR YOU AND IT IS REZONING.

ON APPROXIMATELY 21.7 ACRES. AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN IN FRONT OF YOU ESPECIALLY THE IMAGE ON THE LEFT THIS PROPERTY FALLS INTO TWO ZONING DISTRICTS.

FS 10 DISTRICT AND THE LIMITED OFFICE DISTRICT.

THE SINGLE-FAMILY COMPONENT OF THE ZONING IS APPROXIMATELY 16 1/2 ACRES AND THE REMAINING 5.2 ACRES IS ZONED AS YOU CAN ALSO SEE WHAT PORTION OF THE COMPONENT OF OFFICE AREA.

NEXT SLIDE COUNSEL AND MEMBERS OF THE VIEWING AUDIENCE I WANT TO PROVIDE SOME HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OR BACKGROUND RELATED TO THE SITE TO THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION HAS RECEIVED THREE REQUESTS TO THIS SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM THE VERY SAME APPLICANT TONIGHT FOR A SINGLE-FAMILY USE.

SPECIFICALLY IN AUGUST 2020 THIS ITEM WENT BEFORE PNC ON AUGUST 2020 IT WENT BEFORE COUNSEL BUT WAS REMANDED TO THE TMZ THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION HAD NOT AT THAT TIME HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW IT IN SEPTEMBER OF THAT TIME WE HAD THE PLANNING AND ZONING MISSION UNANIMOUSLY HAD A DENIAL IN THE VOTING REQUEST. AT THAT TIME THE APPLICANT WITHDREW THEIR APPLICATION. FOLLOWING IN SEPTEMBER AND NOVEMBER THE APPLICANT REQUESTED A ZONING CHANGE AND THIS TO WAS RECOMMENDED FOR DENIAL FROM THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION WITH A 4 TO 3 VOTE.

SUBSEQUENTLY THE APPS REALLY APPLICANT REVIEWED THEIR REQUEST. AS A RESULT OF THIS THE APPLICANT WENT THROUGH THEY TOOK A PAUSE, REVISITED THE APPLICATION AND THEN CAME FORWARD AND IT IS BEFORE YOU TONIGHT HEAR THE APPLICANT CAME FORWARD WITH A REVISED REQUEST TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE CONCERNS FROM THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION AND STAFF RELATED ELEMENTS SUCH AS THE SET BACK, THE GARAGE CONDITIONS AND THE ABILITY OF JAY HOOKS OR SWING DRIVES IN RELATIONSHIP TO A FOUR FOOT RECESS.EXT SLIDE PLEASE. AS YOU CAN SEE THIS PROPERTY IS GENERALLY UNDEVELOPED. THERE IS AN EXCEPTION PAIR THERE IS AN OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL FIELD ON THE NORTHWEST PORTION OF THE SITE. AS I MENTIONED A PORTION OF THE SITE DOES HAVE FRONTAGE ON TAO ROCK ROAD APPROXIMATELY 240 FEET. THERE'S AN IMMEDIATE UPGRADE THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR THE EXTENSION OF WATERWAY DRIVE ON THIS PROPERTY. IT'S ALSO MATURE CANOPY COVERAGE NEAR DOLL ROCK ROAD AND ALONG THE WESTERN AND SOUTHERN PROPERTY LINES WHICH IS SHARED WITH THE EXISTENT SINGLE-FAMILY PROPERTY.

PLEASE MISS LAURA? THIS SLIDE REFLECTS THE SLIDE ACCESS OR FUTURE ACCESS TO THIS PROPERTY SHOULD THE REQUEST BE APPROVED AND WITH THAT I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT A LITTLE OF DOLL ROCK ROAD IN IT'S CURRENT CONDITION.

THE MASTER PLAN FOR THE CITY ACROSS THE ROAD IS A SIX LANE DIVIDED ROADWAY AND THAT IS PCONTAINED WITHIN 100 10 FEET O RIGHT AWAY. IT IS A FOUR-LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE WITH A SAME AMOUNT OF RIGHT-OF-WAY, 110 FEET.

THERE ARE NO DESIGN PLANS CURRENTLY OR ALLOCATED FOR ANY IMPROVEMENT. AS WITH ANY DEVELOPMENT THAT COULD HAVE IMPACT ON THE CITY'S INFRASTRUCTURE, ESPECIALLY OUR ROADWAYS AND TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS WILL BE REQUIRED SHALL THE REQUEST BE APPROVED ONCE THE APPLICATION COMES IN FOR DEVELOPMENT PLAN REVIEW THAT WILL HELP US ESTABLISH OR IDENTIFY WHETHER A DEDICATED NORTHBOUND TURN LANE WILL BE NECESSARY FOR AN OPENING. THE COUNCIL ON THE SCREEN IN FRONT OF YOU OR THE SLIDE IN FRONT OF YOU THERE IS ALSO AN IMAGE THAT SHOWS GREEN AND RED ARROWS AND THOSE ARROWS ARE DEPICTING THE MOVEMENTS WHICH WOULD BE ASSOCIATED WITH AND EGRESS PROPERTY. AS WE TALKED ABOUT THIS A LONG ROAD, THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE PROPERTY YOU CAN SEE THERE IS AN ABILITY TO DO A LEFT TURN INTO THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS A RIGHT TURN AND AND A RIGHT TURN OUT.

[00:45:01]

THE SECONDARY ACCESS AS I AM CALLING IT WHICH IS DEFINED AND REFLECTED AS CORNERSTONE DRIVE THERE IS THE ABILITY FOR THE RIGHT IN AND WRITE OUT AND AGAIN A TIA WILL ESTABLISH ANY PARAMETERS NECESSARY TO ENSURE A SAFE INGRESS AND EGRESS TO THE PROPERTY AND ENSURE THAT THE STREETS ARE NOT OVERBURDENED. THE CONCEPT PLAN HAS TWO RESIDENTIAL'S WITH THE WATERWAY AND I MENTIONED THE ACCESSIBILITY TO THAT AS WELL AS CORNERSTONE DRIVE.

NEXT SLIDE.HANK YOU. AS PART OF ANY REQUEST WE ALSO ON A VERY PRELIMINARY SCALE LOOK AT SOME OF THE DRAINAGE ELEMENTS OR CONSIDERATIONS RELATED TO DRAINAGE.

THERE IS A STORM WATER INFRASTRUCTURE AND ALSO MULTIPLE STORM DRAINS THAT STEP OUT TO THE SITE HEAR THE STORMWATER DISCHARGE WOULD BE ON THE EAST SIDE OF DOLL ROCK ROAD AS YOU CAN SEE IN THAT BLUE LINE ON THE IMAGE IN FRONT OF YOU. WHEN WE REVIEW OUR AS BUILT RECORDS THAT SHOW US WHAT EXISTED AND IS AVAILABLE YOU CAN SEE THAT IT DOES HAVE THE CAPACITY TO HAVE THE RUNOFF ON BOTH PROPERTIES IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE FLOWS FROM THE OTHER SIDE. WHAT THAT MEANS IS, THE PROPOSED PROJECT CAN BE SERVED BY EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE . WE HAVE KNOWN WITHOUT THE NEED FOR DETENTION . THE APPLICANT WILL ALSO BE REQUIRED THROUGH THEIR CIVIL ENGINEERING STUDY AND SUBMITTALS TO ENSURE THAT NO PROPERTIES IN THE VICINITY WOULD EXPERIENCE A WATER RUNOFF.

THE SITE IS RELATIVELY FLAT AND SO CURRENT CONDITIONS DO HAVE PONDING BUT THROUGH THE ENGINEERING OFFICE SITE THAT COMPONENT WILL BE ELIMINATED OR THAT BURDEN WILL BE ELIMINATED.

NEXT SLIDE LAURA. AS WITH ANY REVIEW ONE OF THE COMPONENTS THAT WE STUDY AND ANALYZE IS THE USE OF THE PROPERTY IN THE CURRENT ZONING AND HOW THAT PLAYS IN WITH THE COMPANY OF THE PLAN. AS I MENTIONED THE TWO ZONING CATEGORIES ON THE SITE THE SF 10 DISTRICT WHICH IS PRIMARILY INTENDED TO ACCOMMODATE LOW DENSITY FAMILY REDEVELOPMENTS HAVING A LOT SIDE OF 1000 SQUARE FEET AND THE LIMITED OFFICE DISTRICT IS INTENDED TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR MORE LOW DENSITY OFFICE USES AT SCALE AND SIZE WHICH DOESN'T TYPICALLY IMPACT THE RESIDENTIAL USES AND CAN SOMETIMES WORK AS A BUFFER OR AN OFFSET.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? MORE IMPORTANTLY ANOTHER ASSESSMENT OR COMPONENT OF OUR ANALYSIS IS UNDERSTANDING THE CONNECTED ENVIRONMENT THAT DETERMINES THE VIABILITY OR RELATIONSHIP OF A PROJECT IN ASSOCIATION WITH WHAT DEVELOPMENTS ARE IN THE SURROUNDING AREA.

TO THE NORTH WE HAVE A DAYCARE FACILITY WE ALSO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL OFFICE WITH IT. WE HAVE THE ROWLETT FIRE STATION CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND WE ALSO HAVE THE CORNERSTONE CHURCH AND PRESCHOOL DEVELOPMENT.

THIS IS SPECIFICALLY NORTH OF THE SITE AND EAST OF THE SITE WE HAVE THE CONDITION APPROVED DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR THE CORNERSTONE. WE HAVE A CEMETERY AND WE HAVE A SINGLE-FAMILY USE AND THEN TO THE SOUTH COMPONENT WE HAVE SINGLE-FAMILY USES THAT WE ARE ESTABLISHING IN THE EARLY 1980S. TO THE SOUTH WE HAVE THE CONDITIONALLY APPROVED DEVELOPMENT PLAN OR TO THE WEST WE HAVE SINGLE-FAMILY USES THAT WERE ALSO ESTABLISHED IN THE EARLY 80S AND THOSE ARE ALSO IN THE DEVELOPMENT.

NEXT SLIDE. FROM A COMPATIBILITY STANDPOINT ONE OF THE ELEMENTS THAT WE REVIEW AND ANALYZE IS WHAT IS THE BUILT-IN ENVIRONMENT IN TERMS OF IF WE HAVE THE MINIMUM PARAMETERS WHAT'S TRULY DEVELOPED? WE ACTUALLY GO THROUGH ALL THE RELEVANT DATA AND LOOK AT THE SUBDIVISIONS AND WE LOOK AT THE ZONING ELEMENTS AND THE BUILDING ENVIRONMENT. WITH A COMPATIBILITY ANALYSIS AS IT IS THE ZONING REQUIREMENTS TO THE NORTHEAST SOUTH AND WEST WE LOOK AT THE ZONING DISTRICTS.

TO THE NORTH WE HAVE STREET ZONING, SF 10 AND THE MINIMUM LOT SIZE IS 10,000 SQUARE FEET WITH MINIMUM BUILDING.

THAT APPLIES TO THE NORTH AND THE EAST.O THE SOUTH AND WEST TO PROPERTIES THAT WERE DEVELOPED AS PART OF THE 1981 DEVELOPMENT CODE WE WOULD CALL THE R1 ONING USES AND THOSE WEREN'T IN THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT OR TO THE SOUTH THE MINIMUM LOT SIZE IS 10,000 SQUARE FEET WITH A MINIMUM GOING INTO 1800. TO THE WEST 7200 SQUARE FEET.

THE REASON WE ANALYZE, I'M USING THAT WORD TOO MUCH BUT

[00:50:07]

THE REASON WE LOOK AT THIS DATA IS WE WANTED TO SEE THE RELATIONSHIP OR UNDERSTAND IT'S RELATIONSHIP OF THE PROPOSED REQUEST TO THE BUILT IN ENVIRONMENT.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING A RANGE OF SQUARE FEET AND DWELLING AREA. AGAIN THE ZONING REQUIREMENT AND BUILT-IN ENVIRONMENT ARE OFTEN DIFFERENT.

THIS SLIDE GIVES US A BETTER IDEA.

I WENT THROUGH A FEW SLIDES RATHER QUICKLY BUT THOSE IDENTIFIED YOU WHAT THE BUILT-IN ENVIRONMENT WAS IN THE LAND USE. THIS SPECIFICALLY WITH THIS COLOR-COORDINATED MAP WITH A SPECIFIC SUBDIVISION AND WHAT WAS ACTUALLY BUILT. TO THE EAST WE HAVE LAKESIDE VILLAGE ESTATE AND YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THE GREEN.

THE AVERAGE LOT AREA IS 9080 SQUARE FEET WITH AN AVERAGE BUILDING AREA OF 2600 80 SQUARE FEET.

TO THE SOUTH WHICH IS WHAT I CALL AN ORANGE COLOR IS THE LOT AVERAGE IS 5011 SQUARE FEET AND AN AVERAGE BUILDING AREA OF 2400 SQUARE FEET TO THE WEST AS YOU CAN SEE THE AVERAGE LOT AREA IS 9100 SQUARE FEET WITH AN AVERAGE BUILDING AREA OF.

THE PROPOSED MINIMUM AVERAGE 6070 DUES SQUARE FEET.

THAT IS AN AVERAGE OF APPROXIMATELY.

ARE RATHER RESTRICTIVE.THIS IS LIKELY THE AVERAGE WE LOOK AT OVERALL FROM THE DEVELOPMENT.

MOST OF THE PROPOSED LOTS IN THE SUBDIVISION AND I WILL SPEAK TO THOSE IN A FEW MINUTES ARE SUBJECT TO 6000 SQUARE-FOOT. AT MINIMUM DWELLING IN THE AREA IS ALSO ARRANGED AS I MENTIONED OF 1850 TO 3000 SQUARE FEET WHICH IS LESS THAN THE BUILT AVERAGE.

NEXT SLIDE. ADDITIONALLY AS I MENTIONED THE PROPOSED SUBDIVISION WILL BE DEVELOPED INTO A MINIMUM OF SIX. THEN, 21 LOTS.

REVIEWING THIS CONCEPT PLAN IN UNDERSTAND THE SPATIAL COMPONENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PLAN WITH THE PROPOSED LAYOUT, IT DOES RESULT IN A SUITABLE TRANSITION FROM THE NORTH AND FUTURE NON-RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS TO THE SELF.

SPECIFICALLY THE CONCEPT PLAN PROVIDES COMPLEMENTARY LOTS AND HOMES THAT ARE TO THE SOUTH OF THE SITE HEAR THE SMALLER LOTS THAT ARE LOCATED TO THE INTERIOR OF THE SITE ALSO WORK AS A DO NOT COMPROMISE THE TRANSITION.

NEXT SLIDE. A PRINTED PLAN DESIGNATES THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL FAMILY.

YOU CAN SEE A PORTION A SLIVER OF LAND AREA THAT IS SHOWN ON BROWN AND REFLECTED AS MULTIFAMILY DESIGNATION AND A REMAINDER OF THE SUBJECT IS SINGLE-FAMILY LOW DENSITY RESIDENTIAL. MORE THAN LIKELY THE MULTIFAMILY DESIGNATION IS A REMNANT OF THE UNDEVELOPED PROPOSAL. THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT HAS LOTS THAT PROVIDE A MINIMUM, HAS LOTS WITH A MINIMUM OF 7200 SQUARE FEET ON THE SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PERMIT A DIRT WHICH IS AN ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOOD AND THIS DOES CONFORM TO THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE PROPERTY DOES HAVE LOT SIZE IS LESS THAN 7000 SQUARE FEET AND WOULD BE DEFINED AS MEDIUM DENSITY. HOWEVER WE ARE LOOKING AT THE SITE COHESIVELY AND COMPREHENSIVELY AND WHILE NOT CONSISTENT WITH A FUTURE LAND USE MAP OR PLAN IN IT'S ENTIRETY THE PROPOSED MINIMUM RESIDENTIAL USE IS CONCENTRATED AWAY FROM THE LOW DENSITY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS AND SURROUNDED BY THE NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENTS.

WITH THAT, COUNSEL THE NEXT SLIDES ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO THE CONCEPT PLAN BECAUSE AFTER REVIEWING THAT THIS CONCEPT PLAN SHOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU A CLEARER PICTURE OF WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT WITH THE COMPATIBILITY ANALYSIS.

AS INDICATED THERE ARE A MAXIMUM OF 99 LOT ON THE

[00:55:01]

SUBJECT SITE AND YOU CAN SEE IT IS A COLOR-CODED SITE PLAN ON YOUR SCREEN. 78, I AM SORRY, 78 OF THESE LOTS ARE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO CALL THE TYPE A LOT OR MORE SPECIFICALLY THE LOTS THAT ARE IN YELLOW ON YOUR SCREEN.

THE MINIMUM LOT SIZE FOR THESE IS 6000 SQUARE FEET COULD WE HAVE A MINIMUM DWELLING IN IT'S SIZE AND THEN IS CAPPED FOR 20 PAND 50 WITH NO LESS THAN 1850 SQUARE FEET.

COUNSEL, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PROPOSED CONCEPT PLAN YOU CAN ALSO SEE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN IS THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE IT WHERE THE CORNERSTONE STARTS INTO THE GREEN PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY OR GREEN COORIDOR THAT IS TO DELIBERATELY INJECTED IN THERE TO PROVIDE SOME RELIEF TO THE BUILDING. I WILL SPEAK TO ALL THE GREEN SPACES. YOU CAN SEE ALONG THE PORTION OF THE CONCEPT PLAN WE HAVE THE PURPLE LOT WHERE IT WILL BE THE TYPE WE LOT THOSE ARE THE 21 LOTS.

THE MINIMUM LOT SIZE WILL BE 70 7000 SQUARE FEET AND A MINIMUM OF 2000 SQUARE PETE. THESE LOTS WILL HAVE THE TWO AND ONE FORMULA WHICH BASICALLY MEANS YOU WILL HAVE TWO DOORS WITH A JAY APPROACH OR A SCREEN APPROACH IN A SINGLE DOOR WILL FACE THE STREET BUT IT WILL BE ACCESSED THROUGH THE BACK.

TYPE I LOT THE 78 LOT WOULD HAVE A FRIEND ENTRY GARAGE PRODUCT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE AS YOU SAW AND I HOPE WE DIDN'T SKIP THAT CONCEPT PLAN AND WE SPENT ENOUGH TIME ON IT BECAUSE I WANT TO SPEAK TO THAT AS IT RELATES TO THE COMMON AREAS. THERE ARE FOUR COMMON AREAS THAT ARE PROPOSED ON THIS PROPERTY AND THE FIRST ONE THAT I WILL SPEAK TO IS A PLAYGROUND WITH TECHNIC TABLES AND BENCHES AND IT IS 19,000 SQUARE FEET AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE IMAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. ADDITIONALLY THERE IS A 16,000 SQUARE-FOOT SPACE WHICH WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE MAINTAINED BY THE HOA AND THAT IS A COMMUNITY GARDEN.

YOU CAN SEE THAT TO THE TOP RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN.

THEN THERE IS A 34,000 SQUARE FEET AREA THAT WILL BE ENCLOSED FOR A DOG BARK. THAT WILL HAVE A PEDESTRIAN TRAIL AROUND WHICH YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN TO YOUR RIGHT.

THEN THERE'S ALSO THE LANIER SPACE WITH THE GAZEBO THAT I MENTIONED AND THAT WAS REFLECTED ON THE SITE PLAN ON THE EARLIER SLIDE. NEXT SLIDE.

IN ADDITION THERE IS AN EXTENSION OF THE OPEN SPACE BETWEEN LOT 3B AND THE ADJACENT CEMETERY THAT YOU CAN SEE AND READ. AS YOU CAN SEE, THAT SPECIFIC LOT WHICH ABUTS THE COMMON AREA IS OR WOULD HAVE A SCREENING MECHANISM OF A STEELE FENCE. AND THEN THE CEMETERY ITSELF WOULD HAVE A SIX FOOT MASONARY WALL THAT WOULD BE INSTALLED.

HOWEVER, WHEN THIS WAS PRESENTED TO THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION THEY RECOMMENDED THAT THE SIX FOOT MASONARY WALL THAT SURROUNDS THE CEMETERY BE REPLACED WITH A DECKER DECORATIVE FENCE IN ORDER TO ALLEVIATE A TUNNEL LIKE COORIDOR EFFECT. THE REASON THAT RECOMMENDATION WAS MADE IS IT WAS THE STAFF CONCERNED THAT THIS EXTENSION WAS VERY NARROW AND LONG. IT IS 100 80 FEET LONG AND 5 FEET WIDE AND IT DOES CREATE A TUNNEL LIKE COORIDOR IT IS NOT INVITING TO PEDESTRIANS AND IT TAKES AWAY IN OUR OPINION FROM THE COMMON AREA AS WELL AS THE RESIDENTIAL LOT.

IT IS THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION THAT THIS BE INCREASED OR REMOVED IN ORDER TO PREVENT THIS CONDITION.

THE PLANNING AND ZONING RECOMMENDATION WAS TO INSTALL THE DECORATIVE METAL FENCING AND WALL TO ALLEVIATE THIS CONDITION. THEY HAD INDICATED THAT THE PLANNING AND ZONING MEETING THAT THEY ARE AGREEABLE TO THIS BUT THEY WANTED TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THE PROPOSALS IN FRONT OF COUNSEL AS WELL AND ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND DECIDE THE NEXT STEPS DEPENDING ON THE RECOMMENDATION.EXT SLIDE.

IN ADDITION UPDATE FOOT WOODEN FENCE WOULD SERVE AS A SCREENING MECHANISM ON THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN PROPERTY LINE. WE TRIED TO GIVE YOU A SNAPSHOT OF THAT. A SIX FOOT FENCE IS PROPOSED ALONG THE WESTERN PROPERTY LINE EXISTING TO THE FAMILY HOME STEP BACK ONTO THE ALLEY AND CITING THAT THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE ADJACENT FENCE HEIGHT, PLANNING AND ZONING RECOMMENDED

[01:00:05]

THAT THE SIX FOOT FENCE BE INCREASED TO 8 FEET.

THIS IS ALSO AMENABLE TO THIS REQUEST.

NEXT SLIDE. COUNSEL HAS INDICATED IN THE PLANNING REPORT THAT THESE ARE USED TO PROVIDE ULTERIOR STANDARDS. IN THIS INSTANCE WITH A BASE ZONING TO SUPPORT IT. IN THIS INSTANCE THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING ASHVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO PROVIDE A SNAPSHOT OR A COMPARISON TO THE CURRENT ZONING AND THEN THE SF FIVE BASE ZONE BEING PROPOSED AND THE RELATIONSHIP TO THE DOMINANT CONDITIONS THAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING.

AS IT RELATES TO THE LOT SIZE, THE CURRENT ZONING DISTRICT REQUIRES A 10,000 SQUARE-FOOT. HE SF FIVE DISTRICT REQUIRES A MINIMUM LOT SIZE OF 10,000 SQUARE FEET AND THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING TO THIS LOT TYPE 6000 7200 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM.

THE MINIMUM LOT DEPTH IS VERY COMPARABLE TO THE FSN DISTRICT TO THE SETBACKS ARE VERY COMPARABLE TO THE SF 10 DISTRICTS. THE SIDE YARDS BACK AND THE YARD SETBACKS ARE COMPARABLE, TOO.

THE MINIMUM SETBACK FOR THE TYPE A LOT ARE BOTH A LITTLE SHY OF WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED IN THE SF FIVE DISTRICT AND 10 DISTRICTS. I WILL EXPLAIN WHY THAT IS THE CASE OR WHY THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING THAT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. I KNOW THERE ARE A LIST OF VARIATIONS THAT ARE BEING PROPOSED AND VARIANCE THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING AND I WILL TRY TO FIT EACH ONE OF THOSE THROUGH THIS DISCUSSION. THERE ARE SIX VARIANCES THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING. ONE IS TO ELIMINATE THE ALLEY REQUIREMENT AND CANNOT HAVE A RECESS FROM THE FRONT WALL OF THE HOUSE OR THE PORCH FROM THE FRONT WALL OF THE HOUSE OR THE PORCH.N ADDITION THE APPLICANT WANTS TO PROVIDE FRONT ENTRY GARAGE IS 478 OF THE 99 LOTS.

THEY WANT TO DECREASE OR ARE REQUESTING A VARIANCE TO DECREASE THE RIGHT-OF-WAY FROM 60 FEET TO 50 FEET.

THEY ARE ALSO REQUESTING TO ELIMINATE THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY ENTRY AREAS IN LIEU OF OPEN-SPACE LOT ALONG THE COMMON AREA THAT THEY HAVE PROPOSED AND REQUEST TO DECREASE THE SETBACK FROM 25 FEET TO 50 FEET AND INCREASE THE HEIGHT OF THE BUILDING FROM 35 FEET OR 2 1/2 STORIES.

NEXT SLIDE. THE FIRST REQUEST OR VARIANCE THAT WERE GOING TO TACKLE TONIGHT IS THE ELIMINATION OR THE REQUEST TO WAIVE THE ALLEY REQUIREMENT AND PROVIDE FRONT LOADED GRUDGES AND NOT HAVE A RECESS FROM THE FRONT WALL TO THE PORCH. PROVIDING FRONT ENTRY GARAGE IS WITHOUT THE JAY HOOK APPROACH ON 70 OF THOSE LOTS.

AGAIN, ALLEYS ARE INTENDED TO HAVE TRASH PICKUP AND PROVIDE PARKING ALTERNATIVES TO OPEN THE STREET FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES FOR EXAMPLE AND TO BASICALLY ENCOURAGE PEDESTRIAN ACTIVITY ALONG THE STREET. WHEN FRONT ENTRY PORCHES ARE ALLOWED THE L OR JAY OR SPRING DRIVE APPROACHES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE FOUR FOOT RECESS THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IS APPLICABLE THE INTENT IF THAT IS TO PROVIDE SOME RELIEF IN ELEVATION FORM AS IT RELATES TO THE APPEARANCE OF THE HOME.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. AS INDICATED, THE APPLICANT WILL BE PROVIDING JAY HOOKS FOR 21 OF THOSE LOTS AND THOSE ARE THE LOTS REFLECTED ON THE SITE PLAN.

THE UNIVERSAL JAY HOOKS WOULD RESULT IN OFFSTREET PARKING IN ADDITION THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING OR PROVIDING A 25 FOOT STEP BACK FOR THE FOUR FOOT REQUIREMENT.

THIS WILL RESULT IN A LONGER DRIVEWAY THIS NOT IMPACTING THE STREET AND WILL PROVIDE APPEARANCE AND ARTICULATION IN THE STREET. AS IT RELATES TO DECREASING THE RIGHT-OF-WAY FROM 15 FEET TO 50 FEET DURING THE REVIEW OF THIS PROPOSAL WITH A DEVELOPMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE IT WAS DETERMINED THAT BECAUSE A PROPOSED DENSITY IN THE TWO-FOR-ONE GARAGE CONDITION THAT THESE LOTS WOULD NOT OVERBURDEN AUTOMOBILE CIRCULATION, EMERGENCY

[01:05:03]

ACCESSIBILITY INTO THESE RIGHT-OF-WAY'S.

NEXT SLIDE. AS YOU RECALL ANOTHER VARIANT THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING IS TO ELIMINATE THE LANDSCAPING OR ENTRYWAY FEATURES PER THE DEVELOPMENT CODE. THESE ARE FOR A ENTRY POSITION IN A LARGELY TRAVELED THROUGH THOROUGHFARE.

ONE IS FOR THE PRIMARY ENTRY AND THE OTHERS FOR THE SECONDARY ENTRY GOOD AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN IN FRONT OF YOU THE IMAGE TO YOUR LEFT IS THE PRIMARY ENTRYWAY REQUIREMENT WHERE YOU HAVE AN INGRESS INTO AN INTERNAL STREET AND REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A SPECIFIC AREA, 18 BY 40 FEET THAT YOU CAN SEE IN RED AND AN ADDITIONAL 1600 SQUARE FEET OF LANDSCAPED AREA. AS IT RELATES TO SECONDARY ENTRYWAY REQUIREMENT THE AMOUNT OF AREA IS SLIGHTLY REDUCED.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA. AS WE SAW WITH THE APPLICANT'S PROPOSAL FOR THE ELEMENTS OF THE PROPOSED CONCEPT PLAN ALTHOUGH THEY ARE NOT REQUIRING THE PROPOSED FEATURES EXPRESSED BY THE RDC THEY ARE PROPOSING THOSE HOA OPEN SPACES.

THESE SPACES ARE ALSO CONTAINING THE COMMUNITY GARDEN, THERE IS A DOG PARK AND COMMUNITY TRAIL TO THE SOUTH.

THEY WILL ALSO BE ESTABLISHING TREES ON THE PROPERTY.

WHILE THE OPEN-SPACE LOTS FULFILL THE INTENTION OF THE PRIMARY FEATURE, UNFORTUNATELY IT IS LACKING THESE SPECIALTY ENTRYWAY. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO DECREASE THE MINIMUM REAR ACCESS AND THE APPLICANT HAS REQUESTED THIS SO THEY CAN UTILIZE THE SITE TO DEAL WITH THE LACK OF ALLEY ACCESS AND ALSO WITH THE RECESS OF THE GARAGE AND THIS IS AN INCREASE FROM THE PREVIOUS REQUEST.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU RECALL COUNSEL THE PREVIOUS REQUESTS SETBACK A MINIMUM OF 10 FEET. NEXT SLIDE LAURA? THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THAT THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT FEET OF TWO STORIES BE INCREASED TO 2 AND HALF STORIES.

IT WOULD NOT HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. NEXT SLIDE? THE INTENT OF A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT IS TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO REQUEST A HIGHER DEVELOPMENT THAN YOUR TYPICAL ZONING DISTRICT OR LEARNING ORDINANCE.

MRS. REALIZED WITH CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS CENTRALIZED COMMUNITY SPACES, ACTIVE AND PASSIVE OPEN SPACES, INTEGRATED USES, LOT SIZES AND SITES THAT ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT FROM INDIVIDUALS IN DIFFERENT ECONOMIC STRUCTURES.

THE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT PREVENTS NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING FIELDS AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

ALSO ENCOURAGING IMPROVEMENTS TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE AND FUTURE OF EXISTING RESIDENTS. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

KEEPING IN LINE WITH HIGH-QUALITY DEVELOPMENTS MAY RESULT IN A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND IT CLEARLY ARTICULATES OR DEFINE SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBORHOODS AND BASICALLY STATES THAT THE FOCUS ON INCORPORATING A MIX OF HOUSING TYPES TO CREATE COMPLETE NEIGHBORHOODS AND WILL ADD DIVERSITY TO COMMUNITIES AND VERY MUCH IN KEEPING WITH HIGHER QUALITY DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS.

IT'S THE SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT PROVIDE RESIDENTS OF THE SUBDIVISIONS TO THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL BELONGING WITH NEIGHBORHOODS. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT PLAN DOES NOT INCORPORATE A MIX OF HOUSING SITES.

IT DOES DEFINITELY PROVIDE SOME VARIATION IN LOT SIZES AND DWELLING SIZES. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT PLAN REFLECTS COMMUNITY SPACES THAT IS SITUATED WITHIN EASY WALKING DISTANCES TO THEIR HOMES AND PROVIDES CONNECTIVITY.

THE LOTS ARE OF SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES AND WILL BE A MINIMUM OF 2700 FEET PER DRAWING AREA MAKING THEM MORE COMPATIBLE WITH THE EXISTING LAND USE PLATFORM.

THE PROPOSAL IS IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE STRATEGIC PLAN AND

[01:10:04]

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND THE OVERALL INTENTIONS OF THE RDC.

SOME OF THESE TREE STANDS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT THE APPLICANT WAS MAKING CAN BE REFLECTED HERE.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS A VIEW FROM THE RESIDENCE FROM THE WEST.

THERE ARE ALSO THE EXISTING REC FIELDS THAT WERE IN THE PRESENTATION. NEXT SLIDE.

THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE AND THE RDC NOTICES ARE IN A 200 FOOT RADIUS OF THE SITE. AND, A NOTICE OF THE 500 FOOT BUFFER OF THE SITE. 66 NOTICES WERE MAILED WITHIN THE 200 FOOT NOTICE AREA AND 97 WITHIN THE 500 RADIUS.

WE RECEIVED SIX RESPONSES IN OPPOSITION WITHIN THE 200 FOOT RADIUS AND 3 IN FAVOR. AND PUT A DELAY OUT 500 COURTESY NOTICES AND RECEIVED FOR IN OPPOSITION.

THE ONES THAT WERE IN OPPOSITION WERE THAT WE WERE IGNORING PROPERTY VALUES, AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS AND CONNECTION TO THIS DEVELOPMENT. AT THE FEBRUARY 9 MEETING THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL OF THE SITE WITH A 6 ãONE VOTE WITH FOLLOWING CONDITIONS.

THE OPEN-SPACE AMENITIES AS SHOWN ON THE LANDSCAPING PLAN SHOULD BE PROVIDED IN THE GENERAL LOCATION AND SPECIFIC QUANTITIES DEPICTED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS. FURTHER LANDSCAPE AND HARDSCAPE TREATMENTS TO BE ON AN ADJACENT LOCATION ALONG THE SOUTHERN ENTRYWAY OF THE COMMUNITY TO THE INTENT OF THE SECOND ENTRYWAY REQUIREMENT FOR THE RDC.

A MINIMUM FOUR FEET TALL DECORATIVE METAL FENCE WITH THE MASONARY WALL DECORATING THE CEMETERY AND THE HOA LOT 30.

THE TREE SURVEY PLAN SHOULD THE TREE MAPPING AND THE SIX FOOT WOODEN FENCE ALONG THE WESTERN PROPERTY LINE BE INCREASED TO A SAFE HEIGHT. THEY WOULD BE REQUIRING THESE BY THE PNC AND WILL BE PROVIDING THE PROPERTY OWNER WITH THESE CONDITIONS AND ACCEPTED BY THE COUNCIL.

WITH THAT THE COUNCIL STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS ALSO AN APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST TO REZONE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM SINGLE-FAMILY TO A P.D. SINGLE-FAMILY WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS AT THE OPEN-SPACE AMENITIES AS SHOWN ON THE LANDSCAPING PLAN WILL BE PROVIDED IN A GENERAL LOCATION AND SPECIFIC QUANTITY WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS.

FURTHER LANDSCAPE AND HARDSCAPE TREATMENTS BE UTILIZED ALONG THE SOUTHERN ENTRYWAY TO MEET THE SECONDARY ENTRYWAY REQUIREMENTS. THE NARROW CORRIDOR OF OPEN SPACE BETWEEN THE LOT AND THE CEMETERY BE INCREASED TO ALLOW OPEN-SPACE AMENITIES OR ELIMINATED TO CREATE A TUNNEL LIKE CONDITION BETWEEN THE TWO APPEARED AND THE PLAN SHOW THE TREE MAP IN THE OPEN SPACES ARE PRESERVED.

THE PROPOSED REQUEST AND PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND CONCEPT PLAN WILL FOSTER A SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBORHOOD AND CREATE UNIQUE PLACE FOR BOTH IS A GOAL AND MENTAL WELL-BEING.

THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED A VARIETY OF AMENITIES THAT WILL BENEFIT THE PROPOSED COMMUNITY AND THE CITY AS A WHOLE.

THANK YOU FOR INDULGING ME. I KNOW THIS WAS A LONG PRESENTATION COUNSEL AND IT HAS SOME THE ELEMENT TO IT AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

THE APPLICANT IS ALSO PREPARED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THIS HAS BEEN A LONG PROCESS AND JOURNEY TO GET TO THIS POINT.

I WILL OPEN IT UP TO QUESTIONS. I COULDN'T HEAR YOU.

DID YOU SEE THAT THE APPLICANT DOES HAVE A PRESENTATION? WHAT WE WILL DO IS TAKE QUESTIONS AND WILL DO AN APPLICANT QUESTIONS AND TAKE THE QUESTIONS AND OPEN UP PUBLIC HEARING AND THEN OPEN UP FOR GENERAL QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

COUNCILMEMBER? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THANK YOU FOR THAT IN-DEPTH PRESENTATION. THEY ARE RECOMMENDING EIGHT FEET ON THE WEST BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SOUTHSIDE? IS THAT GOING TO BE EIGHT FEET AS WELL AND I'M SORRY, I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT WE ARE STILL NOT ABLE TO PULL IT UP.

>> I CAN'T PULL MINE UP EITHER. IT'S A BIG FILE TONIGHT.

IF YOU CAN GO BACK TO THE SITE PLAN REALLY QUICK I WOULD

APPRECIATE IT. >> SURE.

THIS DOES SHOW UPDATE FOOT BOARD ON BOARD WOODEN FENCE ON THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN PROPERTY LINE.

[01:15:05]

>> MAYOR: CAN ASK A QUESTION? >> SPEAKER: THAT IS ALREADY 80.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: IT IS GOING TO BE EIGHT FEET ON THE SOUTHERN END? WHAT'S GOING TO BE ON THE EASTERN END WHERE THEY ARE BEHIND THOSE HOMES?

>> MAYOR: I THINK IT'S JUST A STREET.

NO, IS THAT THE CEMETERY THAT IS RIGHT THERE?

>> SPEAKER: IT'S EIGHT FEET. >> THE EASTERN SIDE IF I HAVE

MY LOCATIONS CORRECT. >> AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN?

>> SPEAKER: YOU CAN SEE THAT THE NORTH IS CLOSER.

THAT IS UPDATE FOOT FENCE. THAT IS UPDATE FOOT BOARD ON

BOARD FENCE. >> MAYOR: CAN ASK A QUESTION ABOUT THAT? NOW I'M GOING TO GET CONFUSED ABOUT THE DIRECTIONS. NORTH, SOUTH, WEST, EAST.

ON THE SELF SIDE YOU SAID IT QUICKLY SO I'M NOT SURE IF I CAUGHT IT CORRECT THE THEY HAD PROPOSED A SIX FOOT AND YOU SAID THAT IT WOULD BE NOT SURE WHAT YOU WORDS WERE BUT THE PNC RECOMMENDED EIGHT FOOT AND THEN A DEVELOPER IS OKAY WITH THAT? HELPED ME WITH THAT CONVERSATION.

>> SPEAKER: OF COURSE. THE LOTS THAT ABOUT THE ALLEY

DEVELOPMENT TO THE SOUTH? >> MAYOR: CORRECT.

>> SPEAKER: I'M SORRY I'M GETTING FEEDBACK SO MY APOLOGIES. THE CHANGE WAS PROPOSED TO

INCREASE THAT TO EIGHT FEET? >> MAYOR: BUT WHY THE CHANGE TO 8 FEET AND DOES NOT CAUSE ANY INCONSISTENCIES WITH ADJOINING NEIGHBORHOODS? I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY

SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. >> BASICALLY WHAT THE ORIGINAL INTENT WAS WITH COUNSEL WAS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FENCE HEIGHTS WERE CONSISTENT IN THAT THEY ARE STILL SEPARATED BY THE ALLEY SO THAT IT WOULD NOT CAUSE A NEGATIVE IMPACT.

THE APPLICANT WAS PROPOSING A SIX FOOT FENCE SO INCREASING IT BY TWO FEET WOULD NOT HAVE AN IMPACT.

>> MAYOR: SO THE ORIGINAL IS SIX FEET AND BECAUSE THERE IS

AN ALLEY? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: ON THE LOT BE TYPE WHAT IS THE DEPTH OF THAT LOT IF YOU CAN REMIND ME?

HOW LONG ARE THEY? >> SPEAKER: THAT IS NOT SOMETHING I HAVE OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD . BEAR WITH ME.

I'M CURIOUS BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING FROM A 6250 FOOT RIGHT-OF-WAY THEY'RE TO HAVE A FRIEND IN TREE JAY HOOK BUT YOU'RE STILL GOING TO HAVE THE 10 FOOT REAR SETBACK.

AND THEN ¦ >> SPEAKER: THOSE ARE 120 FEET IN DEPTH AND ALL OF THEM ARE GENERALLY 120 FEET IN DEPTH BUT BECAUSE THEY WILL BE WIDER LOTS THAT IS WHY THEY WON'T BE ABLE

TO ACCOMMODATE. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: OKAY.

THEY CAN'T GET THAT EXTRA DISTANCE ON THE BACK? OKAY. THEN MY LAST QUESTION IS AND I'M SURE YOU'VE SEEN THE EMAILS BUT I'VE GOTTEN A COUPLE OF EMAILS DISPUTING THE SURVEY OF THE SITE? CAN YOU ADDRESS THAT? HAVE YOU SEEN ANY OF THOSE

EMAILS FROM CITIZEN? >> SPEAKER: CAN YOU PLEASE

ELABORATE? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THERE ARE A COUPLE OF RESIDENTS WHO LIVE ON THE BACKSIDE THAT HAVE DISPUTED THE SURVEY. THEY'VE REQUESTED THE CHURCH TO PULL THEIR DEED THEY DON'T FEEL THAT THEIR SURVEY IS CORRECT AND THEY WANT TO HIRE AN INDIVIDUAL SURVEYOR TO SURVEY THE LOT BECAUSE THEY THINK IT IS ON PART OF THEIR PROPERTY ON THAT SUB SOUTH EASTERN CORNER. SO, JUST CURIOUS IF YOU HAVE HEARD OF THAT IF THERE IS ANY CONVERSATION IS BEING HAD ABOUT THAT OR WHAT DEEDS THEY ARE USING FROM THAT AND WHAT SURVEY? HAVE WE SURVEYED, I'M ASSUMING THE DEVELOPER DID DO A SURVEY AT THE LOT? B3 THE ANSWER TO YOUR FIRST QUESTION NO.

I'VE NOT SEEN THAT EMAIL SPECIFICALLY HOWEVER WHEN A ZONING CHANGE DOES COME FORWARD WITH THE SURVEY THAT'S USED IT

[01:20:02]

IS AN ABSTRACT IF THE PROPERTY IS NOT DIRECTED BUT AS THEY START TO REQUEST THE FIRST COURSE OF ACTION IT IS TO COMPLETE AND CONDUCT A WILL IDE THE PROPERTY ACCURATELY.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: THAT WAS MY LAST QUESTION.

>> MAYOR: COUNCIL MEMBER DID YOU RAISE YOUR HAND?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: REGARDING THE INTERSECTION AT POWELL ROCK WHICH IS WATER'S WAY AND LAKESHORE DRIVE I'M JUST A BIT CONCERNED ABOUT THAT INTERSECTION GIVEN THAT IF THIS SITE IS DEVELOPED IT WILL BE A FULL-BLOWN FOUR-WAY INTERSECTION. IS THERE ANY CONCERN ON YOUR END ABOUT THAT? AND, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON MAY BE THERE BEING SECURED LEFT TURN LANES ONLY WHICH WOULD CAUSE THE OCCUPANTS EXITING THE NEIGHBORHOODS ON EAST AND WEST OF DOWELL ROCK TO FORCE A RIGHT TURN WITHOUT GOING THROUGH THE

INTERSECTION? >> SPEAKER: LET ME SEE IF I UNDERSTAND YOUR QUESTION CORRECTLY.

IN TERMS OF ACCESS TO THIS SITE THERE IS ALREADY A MEDIAN BREAK AT THAT ROAD. SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IF THE REQUEST GETS IMPROVED IS AN TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS WHICH WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT A DEDICATED NORTHBOUND TURN LANE IS NECESSARY AT THAT MEDIAN.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THAT BEING A FULL INTERSECTION RIGHT THERE AND NOT BEING SECURED.

I ALREADY SEE WITHOUT THAT NEIGHBORHOOD BEING DEVELOPED I ALREADY SEE CARS PULLING OUT TO THE MEDIAN RECKLESSLY LEAVING WATER'S WAY WHICH IS THE EXISTING NEIGHBORHOOD.

I'M IMAGINING ADDING TO THAT WITH 99 HOMES AND HAVE A BIT OF

CONCERN THERE. >> SPEAKER: ABSOLUTELY.

ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES IS THERE WILL BE A SOUTHERN COMPONENT TO THE SITE THAT WILL BE A RIGHT TURN IN AND OUT.

DEFINITELY PART OF THIS REVIEW WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT DANGEROUS CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXASPERATED AS PART OF THIS

REQUEST. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: OKAY, THANK

YOU. >> MAYOR: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE WE MOVED TO THE APPLICANT'S PRESENTATION? ALL RIGHT, WE WILL GO AHEAD AND GO THERE NEXT.

AND, WHILE WE ARE PULLING THIS UP AND NOT TO MINIMIZE ANYONE ELSE'S INVOLVEMENT BUT WHAT YOU DO A GREAT JOB PULLING THE PRESENTATION UP AND DOWN. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

>> SPEAKER: ADAM ARE YOU PRESENTING THIS ITEM? CAN YOU PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD?

>> MY NAME IS ADAM.

FIRST OF ALL THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT JOURNEY.

I HAVE A TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR YOUR STAFF, CITY AND GUIDANCE.

AS YOU KNOW WE HAD A FEW MEETINGS TO GET THOSE POINTS IN BUT WE WERE VERY PROUD OF LAKESHORE VILLAGE AND WHAT IT WILL COME FROM A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT THROUGH CORNERSTONE CHURCH AND STAFF AND GETTING INPUT FROM THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION. TO GET TO THIS AGAIN.

THIS IS A GREAT JOURNEY AND WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL SEE THIS COME TO FRUITION. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

I AM NOT GOING TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF TIME ABOUT THE SUBJECT PROPERTY BECAUSE I THINK THAT WE HAVE.

AND WE MIGHT PASS A FEW SLIDES BUT IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT BY ALL MEANS. THE SUBJECT PROPERTY HAS A ZONE REQUEST AND WERE NOT FOCUSED ON THE PRIOR FEEDBACK.

[01:25:05]

THIS IS AN ACTIVE AND OPEN SPACE AND WE WILL GET MORE DETAILED ON THAT. I HAVE A SCREENING PLAN SLIDE AND THE EXHIBIT WILL HELP TO PROVIDE A CLEAR ONE-STOP SHOP FOR THAT AM GOING TO FINISH WITH A HIGH-QUALITY REPRESENTATIVE AND I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVE SEEN THE HOMES AND THE PRICE POINT PROJECTIONS THAT WE HAVE YOU WILL SEE THIS IS A COMMUNITY THAT WE CAN BE VERY PROUD OF.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. >> MAYOR: ADAM? WE ARE EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTY WITH YOUR SOUND.

THERE'S QUITE A BIT OF BUZZ WHILE YOU ARE SPEAKING.

COULD YOU GO OUT AND COME BACK IN?

>> SPEAKER: I'M GOING TO EXIT AND THEN COME BACK AND HERE

THIS HAS HAPPENED TO US BEFORE. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU.

>> SPEAKER: CAN YOU HEAR US? >> MAYOR: MUCH BETTER, THANK

YOU. >> SPEAKER: DO I NEED TO START OVER OR WERE YOU ABLE TO HEAR ME OKAY UNTIL THIS POINT WE'LL.

>> MAYOR: WE ARE GOOD TO GO. ADVANCE TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

>> SPEAKER: OKAY. NEXT SLIDE.

SO, OUR LOCATION IS BETWEEN TRAINEE AND MILLER ROAD.

NEXT SLIDE. THIS IS A ZOOM IN AREA OF WHERE WE ARE AT. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AS WE POINTED OUT THIS IS THE EXISTING CURRENT ZONING ON THE PROPERTY WITH LIMITED OFFICE AND THE REMAINING.

THIS IS THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN WITH APPROXIMATELY THE 5.2 ACRES BEING MULTI FAMILY AND AS PWE MENTIONED THIS WAS PROBABLY REMNANT OF A PRIOR ZONING PROPOSAL AND PLAN THAT NEVER CAME TO FRUITION AND THEN ABOUT 16 1/2 ACRES IS A RESIDENTIAL DEFINED AS A LOT ON A 7000 SQUARE-FOOT AREA.

7200 MINIMUM LOT ON THE ENTIRE AGENCY WITH EXISTING RESIDENTS TO THE SOUTH. AND THE INTERIOR HAS A LOT SIZE OF 6000 SQUARE FEET AND IT IS LOWER AND SO ARE ABLE TO COUNT THAT MULTIFAMILY COMPONENT. AS MENTIONED THIS WAS PART OF THE TRANSITION. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE ZONING REQUEST AND I'M GOING TO HIT THE POINTS THAT WE TALKED ABOUT WITH THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION IN THE FEEDBACK. THEN WE WILL GO INTO THE AMENITIES AND OPEN SPACE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? IF I MIGHT TAKE A MOMENT TO ADDRESS ONE OF THE COMMENTS THAT WE HEARD FROM ACCOUNT MEMBER.

WE DO HAVE A SIGN IN SURVEY THAT WAS DATED MAY 27 OF LAST YEAR SO IT IS FAIRLY CURRENT. WE HAD THE TITLE COMMITMENT AND THERE WERE NO ISSUES OR STRIPS. NO ISSUES WITH RESPECT TO HAVING THAT COMMITMENT. NO ISSUES OF THE ENTITLEMENT.

AND TO REITERATE OUR COMMITMENT AND AGREEMENT TO FULLY FOLLOW THE TIA RECOMMENDATIONS THEREFORE WHEN WE GET TO THAT POINT TO ADDRESS THE EGRESS AND ANY CONCERNS OR ISSUES TO FOLLOW THAT GUIDANCE, WE WILL CERTAINLY DO THAT.

THIS ZONING REQUEST IS FOR 99 LOTS.

FOREIGN HALF UNITS PER ACRE. THE YELLOW LOTS 78 OF THEM ARE 50 BY 120 MINIMUM TYPICAL SIZE LOT.

AND THEN THE PURPLE LOTS ARE 60 BY 120 SAME DEPTH.

THEY ARE WIDER AND THOSE ARE THE 7200 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM SOME LARGER AND THERE ARE 21 OF THOSE.

WE WORK COLLABORATIVELY WITH THE STAFF AND CHURCH AND THIS IS A LONG LASTING SUSTAINABLE EVENT WITH ALL AMENITIES INCLUDED. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE HOMES ON THE 50 FOOT WIDE LOTS WILL BE A MINIMUM OF 1058 SQUARE WITH AT LEAST 35 PERCENT OF THEM BEING 2000 SQUARE FEET.

[01:30:02]

THAT IS A MINIMUM. AND THEN THE 60 FOOT SQUARE-FOOT LOTS THE PURPLE WILL HAVE A MINIMUM OF 2000 SQUARE FEET SIZE. WE HAVE THREE TERMINAL LOTS WITH RED STARS ON THEM FOR BEAUTIFICATION AND ATTRACTIVE STREETSCAPE. FOR SOME PERSPECTIVE THE AVERAGE BUILDING AREA OF PENINSULA NUMBER 5 TO THE WEST IS ABOUT 2100 SQUARE FEET. THE AVERAGE OF CAMBRIDGE MEADOWS IS 2400 SQUARE FEET. THE MINIMUM OUR AVERAGE WILL BE HIGHER THAN BOTH OF THEIR AVERAGES RESPECTIVELY.

WE WILL HAVE LARGER HOMES ON AVERAGE AND THERE MOMS ARE AT AVERAGES. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ADDRESSING PNC FEEDBACK. WE ARE THRILLED TO HAVE A RECOMMENDATION TO THE COUNCIL BEFORE YOU 6 TO ONE ON FEBRUARY 9. THERE WERE THREE PRIMARY CONCERNS OF THE LAST TWO MEETINGS THAT WE HAD MADE ADJUSTMENTS FOR.

THEY SURROUNDED TOPICS OF LOT SIZE AND THAT WAS NUMBER 1.

NUMBER 2 WAS HAVING A RECESS FOR FRONT ENTRY GARAGE IS COULD RESULT IN INSUFFICIENT DRIVEWAY DEPTH AND WHETHER A REAR YARD SETBACK OF 10 FEET MIGHT BE TO CLOSE TO EXISTING HOMES FROM THE SOUTH AND WEST.HAT WAS THE FEEDBACK A COUPLE MEETINGS AGO. TO ADDRESS THAT, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. NUMBER ONE WE REALLY TOUCHED ON THIS ALREADY BUT WE WENT THROUGH THE LOGIC AND SHOWED THAT THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN WITH LOW DENSITY RESIDENTIAL IS A 7000 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM AND HOW WE BROUGHT 7200 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM AROUND THE ENTIRE ADJACENCY WITH THAT PLAN.

AND THEN 25 PERCENT OF THE PROPERTY BEING ZONED FOR A FUTURE LAND USE GRANT FOR MULTIFAMILY.

WE HAVE TAKEN THIS AS A WHOLE. OVERALL DENSITY IS IN CONFORMANCE AND LOWER THAN IF WE WOULD HAVE HAD THAT FUTURE LAND USE DESIGNATION. THE LAST POINT WE TALKED ABOUT WITH THE COMMISSION IS THAT THE LOT SIZE DOES NOT EQUAL VALUE AND WE ALL KNOW THAT. THE PRICE POINTS HERE ARE GOING TO BE STARTING IN THE MID- REASON AND MID FORCE PLUS OPTIONS. AS A POINT OF REFERENCE IF WE ZERO UP THE PENINSULA THOSE ADJACENT HOMES RANGE FROM THE MID TO HIGH TO HUNDREDS AND IN CAMBRIDGE MEADOWS THE BELOW FROM THE SOUTH RANGES FROM 285 TWO 309,000.

STARTING IN THE MID-THREES IS NOT GOING TO HURT ANYBODY'S VALUE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE SECOND CONCERN WAS THAT NOT HAVING A RECESS FOR THE FRONT ENTRY OF THE GARAGE WOULD RESULT IN INSUFFICIENT DRIVEWA DEPTH. WE WE'RE ABLE TO HAVE WINDSOR HOMES MAKE NECESSARY HOUSE PLAN ADJUSTMENTS SO WE COULD INCREASE THAT FRONT YARD SETBACK BY FIVE FEET ON ALL OF OUR 50 FOOT WIDE LOTS INCREASING IT FROM 20 TO 25 FEET AND MAINTAINING ALL THE SAME QUALITY CONSTRUCTION COMMITMENTS AND THE INTENSE AS YOU CAN SEE WAS TO HAVE A FORKLIFT RECESS FOR THOSE FRONT ENTRY GARAGE IS AND BY INCREASING THE FRONT SETBACK BY FIVE PROVIDED AN ADDITIONAL EXTRA FOOT OF SPACE. AS WE WILL HAVE PLENTY OF PARKING IN THAT AND THAT 25 FEET DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SIDEWALK. WE HAVE PLENTY OF PARKING ON THE LOT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE THIRD ITEM THAT WAS THE FOCUS WAS THE SETBACK WITH 10 FEET. PWE LOOKED AT THAT AND WE HEARD THE COMMISSION AND AGAIN WE BEGAN THE SAME COMMITMENTS AND MAKING THE PLAN ADJUSTMENTS AND KEEPING ALL THE OTHER COMMITMENTS IN PLACE WITH THE SETBACK TO 15 FEET AND THE STAFF SEEMS AMENABLE TO THAT AS WELL AND INCREASED THE BACKYARD AS WELL. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE THIS IS JUST THE SUMMARY TABLE THAT SHOWS THOSE ITEMS IN RED.

THE MINIMUM FRONT SETBACK INCREASED TO 75 FEET TO 20 AND INCREASED THE MINIMUM REAR TO ALL LAW TO 15 FEET.

NEXT SLIDE LEASE. THIS IS JUST A ZOOM IN OF THE E ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOOD SUBDIVISIONS AND WILL BE GREAT NEIGHBORS FOR THOSE FOLKS. SPACE ALONG CAMBRIDGE MEADOW ESTATES WITH THE 15 MINIMUM FOOT SETBACKS WILL BE LESS OR -15 FEET TO 84 FEET THE NEW EIGHT FOOT BOARD FENCE AT THE COMMON PROPERTY LINE. WE HAVE A 72 FOOT MINIMUM SO WE CAN FORM THE FUTURE LAND USE LAND ALONG THOSE FUTURE PROPERTIES. WE HAVE A 2000 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM SIZE WITH THE GRUDGES AND THAT IS COMPATIBLE AND THEN

[01:35:07]

THEY HAVE THE AVERAGE HOUSE SIZE WHICH IS 2400 AND OUR AVERAGES EXCEED THAT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ON THE WEST SIDE THE SPACE BETWEEN THE HOMES ALONG THE PENINSULA WITH AN INCREASED 1500 FOOT SETBACK WILL BE 85 FEET IN THE PNC DIRECTION THAT WE AGREED TO GO TO FROM SIX FOOT TALL FENCE AND THE ONLY REASON WE HAD THAT AT SIX FEET, WAS THE SAME STANDARD. 2000 SQUARE-FOOT MINIMUM AND THEIR AVERAGE BUILDING AREA WAS 2100.

A LITTLE OVER 2100 SO WE WILL BE WITHIN THAT AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? WE HAVE TONS OF AMENITIES AT LAKESHORE VILLAGE. ROUGHLY 2 ACRES NINE PERCENT OF THE PROPERTY IS SPREAD THROUGHOUT SO AVERAGE HOME WILL HAVE A CLOSE PROXIMITY AND WALK ABILITY TO THESE SPACES.

WE WILL HAVE AN ENCLOSED PLAYGROUND AND DOG PARK.

A DEDICATED COMMUNITY GARDEN, PARK BENCHES AND PICNIC TABLES.

GAZEBO AND LINEARLY OPEN SPACE INTERMIXED TO BREAK UP THAT BLOCK IN THE MIDDLE WHICH INCLUDES THE PEDESTRIAN TRAIL ACCESS. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? AT THE NORTHWEST CORNER THAT IS WHERE THE PLAYGROUND WILL GO.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? AT THE FRONT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE THE LANDSCAPING, THE DOG PARK, TRASH RECEPTACLES AND A WALKING TRAIL THAT WILL GO AROUND THE ENCLOSED DOG PARK SO THE TRAIL WILL BE OUTSIDE THE ENCLOSED DOG PARK.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE THIS IS THE PHOTO OF THE TREE AREA AND WE WILL FOLLOW THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE TREE PRESERVATION PLAN. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? THIS IS WHERE THE DOG PARK WILL BE.

YOU CAN SEE WE HAVE THE TRAIL GOING AROUND IT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. IN THE GARDEN ALL THE SPACES AND AMENITIES WILL BE MAINTAINED BY THE HOA.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? WE HAVE ENHANCED LANDSCAPING AND PARK BENCHES AND SO FORTH. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? THIS IS ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT WE TALKED ABOUT THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION PREFER THAT WE KEEP THAT STRIP OF OPEN SPACE BETWEEN THAT FIRST LOT IN THE TRAIL STATION.

THAT'S IN THE PACKET AND WERE HAPPY TO PROVIDE THE RECOMMENDATIONS. THE STAFF PREFERENCES CAN BE REMOVED TO OR MAKE IT WIDER. WE CAN'T MAKE IT WIDER BUT WE CAN MOVE IT TO AVOID THE TUNNEL EFFECT.

WE ARE FINE WITH STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS IN THE WAY THAT THE P&Z HAD LAID THE MOTION. WE ARE GOOD WITH EITHER ONE OF THOSE AND WE WILL FOLLOW THE COUNSEL'S PREFERENCE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? ON THE ENTRY LANDSCAPING WE HAVE COORDINATED AND COMPLETED THE COORDINATION AND WE WERE HAPPY TO FOLLOW THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION WHERE WE ENSURE THAT THE LANDSCAPING WAS INSTALLED GOOD THE PLANS ARE AT THE SOUTHERN ENTRANCE AT THE ROAD OF CORNERSTONE DRIVE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. LASTLY THE LANIER AND OPEN SPACE WILL HAVE A TRAIL LANDSCAPING AND A NICE, ATTRACTIVE GAZEBO IN THAT AREA AS WELL FOR A NICE VISUALIZATION AS YOU ARE DRIVING DOWN CORNERSTONE DRIVE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE THE SCREENING PLAN.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE FOLLOW THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION REQUEST THAT WE HAVE THE HOA MAINTAIN PERPETUITY AND ALL OF OUR PERIMETER FENCING AND ANY FENCING ADJACENT TO OPEN SPACES. THAT WOULD BE MAINTAINED AT THE SAME HIGH QUALITY AND PERPETUITY.

IN BLUE WE HAVE THE STRETCH OF THE SIX FOOT DEVELOPER ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE CEMETERY ON THE SOUTHERN INJURIES.

WE WILL HAVE A RED EIGHT FOOT BOARD FROM THE DEVELOPER ON THE HOA SPACE. THE BLACK WHICH IS MOSTLY THE PERIMETER TO THE NORTH, SOUTH AND WEST AND EAST SIDE WHERE THE CHURCH PROPERTY IS WILL BE IN BLACK.

THAT IS AN EIGHT FOOT FENCE BUILT BY THE BUILDERS AS THE HOMES ARE CONSTRUCT DID. IN PURPLE WE HAVE A SIX FOOT METAL FENCE CREATED BY THE DEVELOPER ON DOWN ROCK ROAD TO KEEP THE NATURAL AREA OF TREES. AND THEN THERE IS A SIX FOOT DECK AND METAL FENCE ON THE NORTHWEST CORNER AROUND THE

[01:40:04]

PLAYGROUND. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

LASTLY WE HAVE THE REPRESENTATIVE PRODUCT FOR THE HOMES AND WE HOPE YOU THOUGHT THESE WERE JUST AS ATTRACTIVE AS WE DO. WE HOPE THAT WE CAN EARN YOUR SUPPORT TONIGHT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

2ND TO LAST ALL OF OUR HOMES SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO HAVE UPGRADED STEELE GARAGE DOORS WITH DECORATIVE HARDWARE AND ARE NINE POLYURETHANE WOOD OVERLAY OR WOOD GRAIN STEELE AS A REPRESENTATIVE AND ILLUSTRATIVE.

PLEASE AND THEN I WANT TO CLOSE WITH SIX POINTS TO SUMMARIZE AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL AGREE THESE ARE A HIGH USE.

I HOPE I AM NOT GIVING YOU FEEDBACK, AM I? WE ARE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE ROWLETT COMPANY AND SUPPLANT ANY OVERALL EXTENT OF THE RBC. WE HAVE RECEIVED A STRONG FAVORABLE RECOMMENDATION FROM THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION. WITH THE HIGH QUALITY AND PRICE POINTS THAT WILL FIT EVERYONE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND CITY.

THERE IS A TERRIFIC AMENITIES PACKAGE WITH OPEN SPACE AND COHESIVELY PLANNED WITH CORNERSTONE CHURCH.

WE ARE VERY EXCITED AND HOPE WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING THIS TO FRUITION. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. COUNSEL, ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I WILL GO TO COUNCILMAN BROWNIE

SHERRILL FIRST. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I HAVE A SIMPLE QUESTION FOR YOU. YOU MENTIONED IN ONE OF YOUR SLIDES THREE TERMINAL VISTA LOT.HAT ARE THOSE?

>> SPEAKER: TO GIVE YOU THE BEST TECHNICAL EXAMPLE, IT IS COME BASICALLY AS I UNDERSTAND IT FROM MY LAYMAN'S TERMS THEY ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN ENHANCED LANDSCAPING FEATURE IN THE FRONT YARD ALONG THE RIGHT-OF-WAY.

IS THAT THE CORRECT DEPICTION? >> SPEAKER: THAT IS CORRECT.

IT ALLOWS RELIEF INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT LONG STRETCHES OF RIGHT-OF-WAY IT GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE FOCAL POINTS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY THAT IT BREAKS THINGS UP A BIT.

>> MAYOR: WHERE ARE THOSE? >> SPEAKER:

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: THERE IS ONE AT THE END OF THE GREEN AND PURPLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN.

THIS ONE AT THE TOP OF THE STREET WHERE IT DEADENS AND THEN ANOTHER ONE AS IT BACKS UP.

YOU CAN'T SEE IT NOW. THERE IS A SLIDE WITH RED STARS

ON IT. >> MAYOR: AFTER I BRAGGED ON LAURA SHE BROUGHT UP THE WRONG PAGE.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: SEVERAL BACK.

GO FORWARD TO SLIDES. THERE IT IS.

NOTE THAT IS NOT IT, I AM SORRY.

KEEP GOING BACK.

RIGHT THERE. COUNCILMAN CHERYL DID THAT

ANSWER YOUR QUESTION? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: PARDON ME?

>> MAYOR: DID THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION?

COUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THANK YOU MARY. CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE SOUTH INSTRUMENT I'M SORRY, CAN YOU ASKED ME E WHY YOU ARE REQUESTING TO REDUCE THE LANDSCAPE IN THAT AREA?

CAN YOU GO OVER THAT AGAIN? >> SPEAKER: WE ARE COORDINATING WITH THE CORNERSTONE CHURCH TO PROVIDE

[01:45:06]

THE LANDSCAPING THAT IS REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH THE RDC. THE TECHNICAL ASPECT OF IT IS BECAUSE OF THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF CORNERSONE DRIVE IS TECHNICALLY OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARY OF THE PROPERTY THAT WE ARE ACQUIRING FROM THE CHURCH WE HAD TO COMMIT TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND WORK OUT WITH THE CHURCH TO PROVIDE THAT LANDSCAPING. IT IS TECHNICALLY OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARY A LITTLE BIT ON THE SOUTH SIDE . WE WILL PLAN TO

FULL COMPLIANCE. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: HAVE THERE BEEN ANY DISCUSSIONS? HAVE YOU HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH WARNER STONE CHURCH OF WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR NEW BUILDING?

>> SPEAKER: RIGHT NOW WE HAVE CONDITIONALLY APPROVED THAT PLAN. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH THEIR EXECUTION DATE WITH CONSTRUCTION BUT THEY ARE VERY

CLOSE. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: WHAT I WOULD HATE IS THE SOUTH ENTRANCE TO NOT BE AS ATTRACTIVE AS THE NORTH ENTRANCE BECAUSE ARE WAITING ON THE CHURCH TO MOVE FORWARD AND THEY DON'T HAVE FUNDING AND I UNDERSTAND HOW THAT CAN GO AND THEY WERE PROBABLY RAISING FUNDS.

I DON'T KNOW. I CAN GET BEHIND IT IF IT LOOKS LIKE THAT DEVELOPMENT IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE BUILDING IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO BEAUTIFY THAT CORNER AND IF NOT I WOULD BE MORE INCLINED TO PUT THAT IN NOW AND IT CAN BE REDONE WHEN THE CHURCH IS BUILT SO THAT THAT CAN BE DONE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN HELPED ME WITH THAT IN TERMS OF WHAT THE TIMELINE IS THERE.

>> SPEAKER: THE WAY WE HAVE THAT ADDRESSED IS IT IS REQUIRED TO BE DEVELOPED AS A SINGLE PHASE.

ALL OF THE LOTS AND STREETS AND INFRASTRUCTURE WILL BE BUILT SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH LAKESHORE VILLAGE.

THAT WILL BE ABLE TO BE USED IN FRONT OF THE CHURCH'S PROPERTY.

WE ARE PUTTING IN THAT ROAD ALL THE ROADS AT ONE-TIME.

THAT IS IN THE P.D. AND PART OF THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS WHICH WE ARE COMMITTING TO SINCE WE ARE PUTTING IN THE ROAD ALL OF THEM AT ONCE, IF FOR ANY REASON WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANTING THAT EXTRA OR PROVIDING THE ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPE IF FOR ANY REASON THE CHURCH DIDN'T. SO IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AND I'M SURE THAT THE PASTOR WILL ENGAGE N AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK AND WILL AFFIRM THAT FOR US.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: HELPED ME UNDERSTAND THAT.

THEY ARE OR ARE NOT PUTTING IN THE LANDSCAPING ON THAT

SOUTHERN ENTRANCE? >> SPEAKER: THE APPLICANT FOR THE CURRENT REQUEST IS NOT PROPOSING, THE ORIGINAL REQUEST WAS NOT. I BELIEVE ADAM YOU ARE REFERENCING THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT WITH YOUR DEPARTMENT NOW IN COORDINATION WITH CORNERSTONE CHURCH,

CORRECT? >> SPEAKER: CORRECT.

>> SPEAKER: IF THE REQUEST WERE TO BE APPROVED COUNCILMAN WE WOULD CONDITION IT IN THAT MANNER SAYING THAT THE SECONDARY FEATURE WOULD HAVE TO BE PROVIDED.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: OKAY, THAT IS NOT A CURRENT REQUEST AND WE DON'T NEED TO INCLUDE IT WITHIN OUR SEPARATE ITEM AS A MOTION TONIGHT BECAUSE THAT WILL HAPPEN.

>> SPEAKER: IF THE APPLICANT IS AMENABLE TO THAT.

>> SPEAKER: WE ARE. >> MAYOR: IS SHOULD BE

INCLUDED. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: ALSO I'M GETTING TO. HE NEEDS TO BE.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THIS MOTION WILL LOOK LIKE.

>> MAYOR: I TOLD MATT TO GET READY.

I THINK WE ARE ALL SAYING IF WE WANT THAT IT SHOULD BE IN THE MOTION. COUNCILMAN BROWN?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A CLARIFICATION AND MAYBE YOU CAN HELPED ME WITH THIS.

1/4 OF OPEN SPACE BETWEEN THE CEMETERY AND THE LOT, I GUESS 30 B YOU ARE RECOMMENDING THAT THAT SPACE BE INCREASED OR ELIMINATED? IS THAT THE SAME SPACE THAT P&Z WAS RECOMMENDING THE FOUR FOOT DECORATIVE METAL FENCING FOR?

>> SPEAKER: ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO PUT A FOUR FOOT METAL FENCING THERE TO ELIMINATE THAT TUNNELING EFFECT? YOUR RECOMMENDATION AGAIN IS TO WIDEN IT OR ELIMINATE IT?

>> SPEAKER: THE SPACE IS 130 FEET LONG AND 5 WIDE AND SO, FROM A LONGEVITY STANDPOINT, IN THE FUTURE YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS CONTINUOUSLY MAINTAINED.

YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT IS ACTUALLY USABLE SPACE.

[01:50:02]

AND SO, THE ADJACENCY, WE WANT THE HOMEOWNER WHO IS ADJACENT TO THAT TO BE ABLE TO UTILIZE AND MAXIMIZE THE OPEN SPACE ADJACENT TO THEM FROM THE AESTHETIC PERSPECTIVE, TOO.

PURELY FROM A SPATIAL ANALYSIS. THE FACT THAT IT IS ONLY FIVE WIDE IT DOES CREATE THAT TUNNEL LIKE APPEARANCE.

>> MAYOR: THERE IS ALREADY A FENCE AT THE CEMETERY? THIS WOULD CREATE ANOTHER FENCE FIVE FEET AWAY?

BASICALLY? >> SPEAKER: THE FUTURE LOT RESIDENTIAL HOME WOULD HAVE THEIR OWN FENCE AND THEN FIVE FEET BEYOND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE THE CEMETERY MASON WALL.

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION, REGARDLESS IF IT IS A WALL, A TUBING FENCING OR AN IRON FENCING, IT'S STILL CREATES THE NARROW APPEARANCE OR TUNNEL.

THAT IS THE INTENSE. IT WOULD BE OUR RECOMMENDATION THAT IT BE WIDENED WHICH COULD IMPACT THE WIDTHS OF SOME OF THE LOTS IF THEY WERE TO EKE INTO THE DEVELOPMENT.

>COUNCIL MEMBER: HOW MANY LOTS WOULD THAT AFFECT?

IT IS A LONG CORRIDOR. >> SPEAKER: IT IS 130 FEET LONG BUT ONLY FIVE FEET WIDE. THE IMPACT SHOULD BE THAT

GREAT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THANK YOU.

>> SPEAKER: WE'VE BEEN UNABLE TO WIDEN IT BECAUSE IT'S AN EXTREME TYPE OF DETAIL OF ENGINEERING IS ALREADY GONE INTO THIS. WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE ROOM TO MEET THE MINIMUM LOT REQUIREMENTS WITHOUT LOSING A LOT. TO MY REQUEST WHICH IS THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS TO EITHER ELIMINATE IT OR WE COULD ELIMINATE IT OR FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATION WHICH WAS TO KEEP IT AND HAVE THE MINIMUM FOUR FOOT HIGH TUBULAR STELE BUT I CAN'T WIDEN IT. IF THE COUNCIL WANTED TO ALLOW US TO CONSIDER RELOCATING OR FLIPPING LOT 30 B TO THE NORTH THEN LET STAFF LOOK AT THAT FROM THE ENGINEERING STAGE AND WE COULD ACTUALLY INCREASE THE OPEN SPACE AND IT WOULD BE A SMALLER LOT AND WE WOULD DO IT THAT WAY.

BASICALLY FLIP THE LOT AND MOVE IT TO THE NORTH.

I CAN DO THAT AND THE ECONOMICS CAN HOLD.

WE HAVE LOST THREE LOTS OF THE PROCESS AND WE ARE AT THAT NOSEBLEED LEVEL. I WANT TO BE HONEST AND TRANSPARENT ABOUT THAT. WHEN I SAY WE ARE GOOD WITH THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS THAT'S INCLUDING THE OPTION OF ELIMINATING IT OR STAYING AWAY WITH THE P&Z NOTION WITH THE

FENCING CONDITION. >> MAYOR: WHAT WOULD YOUR RECOMMENDATION BE TOO THAT AS FAR AS MOVING IT TO THE NORTH?

>> SPEAKER: TO BE VERY CANDID WE WOULD HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE IMPLICATIONS ARE FOR THE OTHER LOTS AND WITH THE IMPLICATIONS WOULD BE ON THE OPEN SPACE. UNFORTUNATELY I'M NOT IN A POSITION TO ADDRESS THAT VERY ELOQUENTLY WITHOUT VISUALLY

SEEING IT. >> MAYOR: THAT'S FAIR ENOUGH.

WAS PUTTING ON THE SPOT. >> SPEAKER: I WOULD REMOVE THAT

LOT ALTOGETHER. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: LOT 30 BLOCK BE. I HAVE A QUESTION.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: WAS WAITING TO SEE IF THE CONVERSATION WAS

OVER. >> MAYOR: I THINK I HAVE WHAT I NEED. ENQUEUE.

ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY SOMETHING ADAM?

>> COUNCIL ONLY. >> SPEAKER: IF YOU MAKE AIM MOTION, DON'T JUST TORCH A LOT. GIVE US OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE 99 LOTS AS REQUESTED AND APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION.

>> MAYOR: WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING RIGHT NOW.

IF YOU COULD SLOW DOWN AND ENUNCIATE CLEAR.

I THINK IT IS A SOUND ISSUE SO WE APOLOGIZE.

WE CAN HEAR YOU, TRY THE WHOLE THING AGAIN.

>> SPEAKER: I'M GOING TO LOG OUT.

>> MAYOR: JUST THE LAST STATEMENT.

>> SPEAKER: IS IT AN ECHO? OR AM I BEING TOO QUIET?

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? >> MAYOR: YES.

>> SPEAKER: WHAT I WOULD RESPECTFULLY REQUEST IS RATHER THAN TORCHING A LOT FROM WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY LOST TO GET TO THIS POINT, IF YOU WOULD ALLOW US THE OPTION AND FLEXIBILITY IN THE MOTION TO WREAK LOCATE LOT 30 TO THE NORTH PROVIDED THAT OUR OPEN SPACE IS NOT REDUCED IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR

[01:55:07]

FORM AND WE COMPLY WITH THE P&Z RECOMMENDATIONS WE WOULD BE OKAY WITH THAT. BECAUSE, I KNOW THAT LOT 30 IS AN EXTRA-LARGE LOT. IT'S EXTREMELY DEEP.

LIKE 145 FEET DEEP ROUGHLY. I CAN PROVIDE A 120 FEET MINIMUM DEPTH AND GAIN OPEN SPACE BY FLIPPING IT TO THE NORTH AND I COULD PROVIDE THAT EXTRA WIDE WIDTH IF THAT IS WHAT THE COUNCIL WOULD LIKE. WHAT I CAN'T DO IS TORCH A LOT.

THAT IS ALL I AM ASKING. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I

UNDERSTAND. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: WHAT DO YOU PREFER MARTHA? THAT SEEMS TO BE YOUR STICKING

POINT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WOULD PROBABLY GO WITH THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION MYSELF TO ELIMINATE THAT. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ELIMINATING THAT FIVE FOOT SPACE NOT JUST TORCHING THE LOT. IS THAT CORRECT?

>> SPEAKER: CORRECT. I THINK WHAT THE APPLICANT IS SAYING, IF YOU LOOK AT THE IMAGE IN FRONT OF YOU IS TO BASICALLY PUSH LOT 30 ALL THE WAY UP SO YOU ARE DISPLACING THE GREEN SPACE AND THEN YOU WOULD MOVE IT TO WHERE LOT ONE WAS. IS THAT CORRECT?

>> SPEAKER: THAT IS CORRECT. WE WOULD STILL PROVIDE THE EXTRA TRAIL CONNECTION, AND MEANDER IT THROUGH A WIDER OPEN SPACE. THAT WOULD HELP US BOTH AND I COULD INCREASE THE OPEN SPACE BY DOING THAT.

THE OTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT TO CANCEL AND I WANT TO MENTION EARLIER, THE LANDSCAPE PLAN, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DID WAS ADD IN A TRAIL CONNECTION FROM THE TRAIL THAT GOES AROUND THE DOG PARK AND WE WILL HAVE A GATED ACCESS CARD FOR HOMEOWNERS. THAT WAS ADDED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL TRAIL CONNECTIONS IN ADDITION TO WHETHER OR NOT WE WOULD MAINTAIN THIS STRIP. ORIGINALLY WE HAVE THE TRAIL CONNECTION THROUGH THE NARROW STRIP BUT IN THIS DIRECTION IS IN LIEU OF OR IF WE JUST ABANDON THE STRIP AND PROVIDE A SEPARATE TRAIL CONNECTION TO DOW ROCK AND THE GATED TRAIL ACCESS.E ARE AGREEABLE TO THAT.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS WE ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE BOTH TO THE GATED TRAIL CONNECTION ACCESS TO DALE ROCK AND KEEP THE TRAIL CONNECTION THROUGH THE NARROW SPACE THAT IT WOULD BE MUCH WIDER IF WE JUST FLIP LOT 30 TO THE NORTH AND MAINTAINED ALL OPEN SPACE. I KNOW I CAN DO THAT.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I THINK I WOULD BE FINE WITH THAT.

>> MAYOR: I AM SEEING A LOT OF NODDING HEADS.

COUNCIL MEMBERS? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I HAVE A

QUESTION. >> SPEAKER: THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT YOU BROUGHT UP IF WE DID THAT IT WOULD ALLEVIATE THE VISIBILITY CONCERN THAT WE HAVE WITH LOT READY BEING BEHIND THIS MASONARY WALL IN THE CEMETERY.

IT'S ANOTHER THING THAT WE MIGHT LIKE IN THAT PERSPECTIVE AS WELL TO FLIP IT THROUGH THE NORTH AND THAT WOULD GIVE US EXTRA AVAILABILITY. ONE THING WITH THAT IS THAT IT WAS 140 FEET LOT AND WE MADE AN EXTRA SETBACK ON THAT LOT.

HE MADE IT 35 FEET FOR EXTRA DISTANCE FROM THAT FIRST HOUSE.

AND SO, THAT ISSUE WOULD ALSO BE RESOLVED AND SIMPLIFIED IF WE CONVERTED THE LOT. IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS ON

THE? >> SPEAKER: YES.

THANK YOU MAYOR. IN PRINCIPLE, TO BE VERY CANDID I THINK THAT CAN WORK. WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T COMPROMISE THE ALREADY APPROVED MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR THE OPEN SPACE BECAUSE WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD FOR THE DEVELOPER/APPLICANT TO GET TO THAT POINT.

IT WOULD BE AN AMENDMENT TO THEIR SITE PLAN.

I THINK IT COULD POTENTIALLY WORK AS LONG AS WE DON'T COMPROMISE OUR OPEN SPACE AREAS WITHIN THAT PD.

WE WOULD HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE REVIEWED THE REVISIONS AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT THE

COUNCIL APPROVES. >> MAYOR: COUNCIL MEMBER

[02:00:01]

MARGOLIS YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: YES BUT IT IS NOT RELATED TO THIS

DISCUSSION REGARDING THE LOT. >> MAYOR: ARE WE DONE WITH THE

DISCUSSION? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: WILL THE HOA MAINTAIN THE COMMUNITY GARDEN AND NOT LET IT BE EMPTY? WILL THEY KEEP STUFF IN THAT? I'VE SEEN THAT AND OTHER DEVELOPMENTS WHERE IT HAS SAT EMPTY.

>> MAYOR: THEY'RE NOT GOING TO PLANT ITEMS FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

NO. I WOULDN'T THINK SO.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GO AHEAD ADAM.

>> SPEAKER: THE HOA WOULD MAINTAIN THE BUBBLE OF SPECIFICS AS FAR AS WHAT THE HOMEOWNER WOULD WANT PLANTED BUT IT WOULD BE THEIR AMENITY TO CHOOSE.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: OKAY, THANK YOU.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: ALL RIGHT. NOT SEEING ANY OTHER QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME AT THIS TIME I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING AND WE WILL TAKE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN SENT IN FOR THE PUBLIC HEARING AND THERE ARE MANY.YES? I HAVE ASKED LAURA TO READ THOSE IN ADVANCE.

>> SPEAKER: MAYOR, I THOUGHT WE WOULD TAKE THE COLORS FIRST.

FIRST WE WOULD GO OVER THE HOUSEKEEPING ISSUE.

THE ISSUE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS. FOR THE CALLERS, PLEASE MUTE ALL ELECTRONICS IN THE BACKGROUND.

YOU WILL BE RECOGNIZED BY THE LAST FOUR DIGITS OF YOUR PHONE NUMBER. NEXT CALLER.

3059. DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THIS

ITEM? >> MAYOR: IF YOU ARE ON THE CALL AND WANT PUBLIC COMMENTS, SURE WHEN YOUR NUMBER IS CALLED OR YOUR NAME IS CALLED PRESS áSIX TO SPEAK.

>> SPEAKER: I WOULD LIKE TO. >> SPEAKER: PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

. >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU PASTOR

HYATT. >> SPEAKER: MY NAME IS BRIAN HIATT AND I'M THE LEAD PASTOR AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH. WOULD LIKE TO THINK THE MAYOR IN THE COUNCIL TO ALLOW ME TO SPEAK TONIGHT AND ALSO THANK YOU GUS AND LADIES FOR ALL THE WORK THAT YOU DO THAT IS SEEN AND UNSEEN BY OUR COMMUNITY AS WELL AS THAT IS SEEN. OUR ROLE TONIGHT IS TO GIVE YOU INSIGHT WHY THIS REZONING ISSUE NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT AND PASSAGE.

CORNERSTONE CHURCH, THE SILVER COMPANY AND CITY STAFF ALONG WITH P&Z AND WORKED COOPERATIVELY TO COME UP WITH A DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL BE BENEFICIAL FOR OUR COMMUNITY FOR MANY MONTHS AND YEARS TO COME.

WE HAVE WORKED EXTREMELY HARD TO ENSURE THE BEST FEATURES OF THE PROPERTY HAVE BEEN PRESERVED SUCH AS THE LARGE GREEN AREAS AND TRIP RESERVATIONS.

THE HOMEOWNERS CAN ENJOY THE LARGE PECAN, OAK TREES AND OTHER TREES THAT ARE THERE. OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS WE'VE WORKED DILIGENTLY WITH THE STAFF AND P&Z TO HAVE A PLAN DEVELOPMENT THAT SERVES THE COMMUNITY.

THERE BEEN CONCESSIONS AND COMPROMISES ON BOTH SIDES AND IT HAS BEEN A LONG ADVENTURE TO BRING THIS BEFORE YOU TONIGHT.

TONIGHT WITH THE SUPPORT ON BOTH THE P&Z AND CITY STAFF WE DESIRE YOUR APPROVAL AS WELL. THESE HOMES ARE WONDERFULLY MADE. EXCELLENT CRAFTSMANSHIP AS YOU WILL SEE AN THE NEED FOR THE HOMEOWNERSHIP IN OUR COMMUNITY.

FOR NOW IN THE NEAR FUTURE. THE MINIMUM OF THE 1800S WERE FOR HOMES FIT THE CRITERIA FOR WHAT MANY FAMILIES, YOUNG FAMILIES ARE LOOKING FOR MORE HOUSE AND LESS YARD TO

[02:05:05]

MAINTAIN. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THESE WILL DRAW LARGER FAMILIES TO THE COMMUNITY THAT ARE LOOKING FOR THE LAYOUT. THE MARKET FOR THE HOMES IS THERE. WE USUALLY SEE THIS IN ROCKWALL AND MELISSA. OTHER LOCALITIES AROUND US.

HE NEEDS TO BE IN ROWLETT AS WELL. LIVE IN WOODSIDE AND I HAVE SEEN THE COMPLETE SELLOUT ACROSS FROM THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN AT THE LAKESHORE PLANT CAMPUS.

I WANT TO ASSURE THE COUNCILMAN THAT WE HAVE WORKED WITH GOLDBERG AND WE WILL HAVE LANDSCAPING THAT WILL MEET THE REQUIREMENTS AND IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL.

OUR CHURCH IT IS GOING TO BE LOCATED JUST EAST OF THE COMPLEX AND WE ARE THERE TO STAY.

WERE NOT GOING ANYWHERE. WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A CAMPUS RIGHT NEXT TO THE NEW COMMUNITY AS WELL AS THE EXISTING COMMUNITY AND THE OPEN SPACE WILL BE OPEN TO THEM TO HAVE ACCESSIBILITY FOR THAT AS WELL AS THE NEW NEIGHBORS AND THE NEIGHBORS WE SERVE NOW.

WE ASK YOU TO HELP THE COMMUNITY AND CHURCH WITH THE NEW FAMILIES MOVING IN.HIS IS A PIVOTAL MOMENT AND I AM HOPING THAT YOU WILL SUPPORT IT.

THANK YOU. >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU.

CALLER 4336. DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM? IF SO, PLEASE PRESS TO UNMUTE.

DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THE ITEM?

>> SPEAKER: REZONING REQUEST. WE HAVE BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES AND ON EACH OF THESE REQUESTS IT'S BEEN REJECTED TO GO BACK AND REDO THE DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE MANY ITERATIONS AND WITH THE SAME PROPOSAL BEING REJECTED BOTH COUNSEL AND COMMITTEE CHANGES ON THE COMMITTEE AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGES FROM THE LAST CALL LED TO A PERCEPTION AND LACK OF DISSENT IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY THAT THE CURRENT COMMITTEE APPROVED THE PLAN UNAWARE OF THE NEGATIVE PERCEPTION THIS HAS HAD OVER THE COURSE OF TIME.

PROPERTY OWNERS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB TO GIVE SUPPORT FOR CALLERS WHO BENEFIT AND I UNDERSTAND IT.

WHAT WE ARE ASKING IS THAT WE BUILD THIS AS A 10.

WE'VE BEEN ASKED TO RETURN WITH THE PROPOSAL AND THEY FAIL TO ADDRESS THIS IN EACH ATTEMPT. I ASKED THE COUNCIL TO DENY THE CURRENT ZONING REQUEST WHICH SPECIFICALLY MANDATES TO THE DEVELOPER AND PROPERTY OWNER TO REBUILD AS ZONES.

THIS IS ALL WE ASK. WE NEED TO ACT BASED ON WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE CITY AND IMMEDIATE COMMITTEE AND NOT ASSISTING IN DRIVING THE PROPHETS FOR SCORE BERG PIT THIS IS THE ONLY REASON AND THE HIGH DENSITY PROJECT SUCH AS THIS. BUILD TO SF ã10 AND WE ARE ALL ON BOARD. THANKS A LOT.

>> SPEAKER: CALLER, CAN YOU REPEAT YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS?

>> SPEAKER:

>> SPEAKER: NEXT CALLER JUL. YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THE QUESTION? PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND

ADDRESS. >> SPEAKER: MY NAME IS JOHN GRIFFIN AND I LIVE AT 3101 WILLIAMS WAY HERE IN ROWLETT.

WE BUILT OUR HOME HERE IN 1984. I WAS ADMITTED TO THE STATE BAR OF TEXAS IN 1968. I HAVE NOT PRACTICED LAW IN THE DECADES. I AM GOING TO ADDRESS THIS ACTUAL CASE AS WELL AS MAKE SOME GENERAL COMMENTS.

I AM GENERALLY AWARE OF HOW THE CITY HAS HANDLED REZONING REQUESTS OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AND HOW IN CONJUNCTION WITH THESE REQUESTS HAVE REPORTED TO HAVE AMENDED THE CITY'S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. I BELIEVE THAT THE SO-CALLED AMENDMENTS TO THE CONFERENCE OF PLAN STATED IN THE ZONING PLAN APPROVALS ARE TOTALLY UNLAWFUL AND INVALID.

THE CITY'S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BASED IN SOME PRELIMINARY RESEARCH ON MY PART INCLUDES THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNOR CODES AND RELEVANT TEXAS SUPREME COURT CASES AND OPINIONS GOING BACK FOR SEVERAL DECADES. IT IS MY OPINION THAT THE WAY THAT THE CITY OF ROWLETT HAS HANDLED THE MATTER AND NOT COMPLIED WITH THE LAW. THAT OPINION IS SHARED BY SEVERAL VERY EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS WHO SPECIALIZE IN

[02:10:01]

THIS LAW. NO CITY THAT I KNOW OF HANDLES THESE MATTERS IN THIS WAY. NO ATTORNEY THAT I KNOW OF BELIEVES THAT HOW ROWLETT HANDLES THESE MATTERS COMPLIES WITH THE LAW. I GUESS THAT WOULD BE THE EXCEPTION OF THE CITY ATTRNEY. I BELIEVE THE CITY ATTORNEY'S INTERPRETATION OF THE LAW AND HIS ADVICE TO YOU IS EXTREMELY SUSPECT. I BELIEVE THE CITY IS SKATING ON VERY THIN ICE AND DOING BUSINESS IN THIS MATTER THE WAY IT'S BEING DONE NOW AND APPARENTLY STILL DOING.

IN MY OPINION WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOTHING LESS THAN THE LEGAL SPOT ZONING. THANK YOU.

>> SPEAKER: THANK YOU CALLER. >> MAYOR: I WILL ASK THE CITY ATTORNEY TO ADDRESS THAT NOW THAT IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP AS A PUBLIC HEARING ITEM AFTER THE PUBLIC HEARING HAS BEEN CLOSED.

UNLESS YOU WANT TO DO IT NOW MR. BERMAN?

YOUR CHOICE. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: IS UP TO YOU

WHATEVER YOU WANT. >> MAYOR: LET'S GO THROUGH THE

PUBLIC HEARING FIRST. >> SPEAKER: CALLER MR. FRANK NELSON DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM? PLEASE HIT á6 TO UNMUTE. MR. JR SCOLA DO YOU WISH TO

ADDRESS THIS ITEM? >> SPEAKER: YES I DO.

>> SPEAKER: PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

P>> SPEAKER: JR SCOLA. IN CIRCLE.

I TRIED TO HIDE THESE OBJECTIONS TO THE REZONED PROPOSALS AND IT'S NO WAY I CAN POSSIBLY GET TO THE MALL.

IN COVERING SO MUCH I FEAR LOSING THE ATTENTION OF COUNCILMEMBERS. I'M GOING TO TRY TO TAKE A DIFFERENT APPROACH AND PRESS A COUPLE OF ITEMS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO GET ON PUBLIC RECORD TO THE CURRENT TOPICS FOR CONSIDERATION FOR THE REZONED ADDRESS WITH THE ATTACHED ORDINANCE IS ALSO ATTEMPTING TO MAKE AN UPDATE TO THE CONFERENCE A PLAN. FROM THE ROWLETT CITIZEN STANDPOINT UPDATING THE CONFERENCE OF PLAN THIS WAY IS VERY SUSPICIOUS. WHY WOULD THE CITY CHANGE THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? CITYWIDE DOCUMENT TO BENEFIT THIS DEVELOPER WITHOUT NOTIFYING ALL OF THE CITIZENS.

THIS DOES NOT LOOK GOOD.HIS OF DATE IN THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE DOESN'T DESCRIBE HOW THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP WILL BE UPDATED OR WHICH CHANGING CONDITIONS WAS UPDATED THE CHANGE. AS SUCH THERE WILL BE NO WAY FOR THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT TO ACTUALLY UP DATE THE COMPETENCE OF PLANT NOR THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP.

THESE MAYOR AND COUNCIL MEMBERS ASK YOURSELVES.

IF THIS ORDINANCE WERE TO PASS HOW WOULD WE, ORDINARY CITIZENS KNOW THE FUTURE LAND USE FOR THIS AREA OF THE CITY.

IF THE ANSWER IS WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH EVERY REZONING ORDINANCE TO SEE IF THERE IS A ASSOCIATED COMPETENCY PLAN UP THE AND APPLY THOSE IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER BY THEMSELVES TO THE FUTURE PUBLIC LAND USE MAP I THANK YOU WILL SEE THAT IT IS UNTENABLE. TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE APPLICATION FOR WAIVERS, REQUESTS AND REZONING HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PUBLIC GOOD RATHER A CLEAR ATTEMPT TO PUSH A PARTICULAR PRODUCT AND MAXIMIZE PUBLIC PROFIT.

THIS IS A TEXTBOOK SPOT ZONING WITH THE BENEFIT OF PRIVATE INTEREST NOT IN CHANGING CONDITIONS THAT AFFECT PUBLIC WELFARE. EVERY UNJUSTIFIED WAIVER IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO CITY DEVELOPERS THAT HAVE ACTUALLY ALL OF THE LAW. SCORE BERG HAS SHOWN IN HIS VERY PROPOSAL THAT THEY COULD IN FACT DEVELOP THIS ENTIRE PROPERTY TO SF SEVEN BUT THEY CHOSE NOT TO.

NOWHERE IN THE PROPOSAL HAVE THEY NOT SAID WHY THEY WILL NOT ADJUST THEY JUST NEED TO ADJUST THE WAIVERS BUT NO, PLAN WOULD BE REQUIRED. I HAVE PERSONALLY SAT THROUGH NO LESS THAN 18 HOURS OF RINSE AND REPEAT MARKETING REZONED.

IMAGINE THE COLLECTIVE RESPONSE TO COUNCILMEMBERS THEMSELVES BY ONLY HEARING REQUESTS TO COMPLY WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

NSTEAD OF HEARING HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY THINK THEIR PRODUCTS ARE WE COULD BE WORKING WITH KOERBER TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE CHARACTERISTICS ARE OF THE PROPERTIES THAT ACTUALLY PREVENT COMPLIANCE.CORE BERG IS HAVING TO GUESS WHAT THE CITY WILL ALLOW.

THE CITIZENS ARE CONSTANTLY HAVING TO RESPOND TO AND CARE FOR PROTEST LETTERS IN THE CITY'S ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE TO SIT THROUGH HOURS OF MARKETING . BY LAW THIS ORDINANCE MUST BE NOT LIMITED TO THE FOLLOWING REASONS THE COMP PLAN UP DATE WAS NOT.

>> SPEAKER: SORRY, YOU ARE OUT OF TIME.

[02:15:01]

NEXT CALLER. PATTY SAYYID.

WE READ YOUR INDIVIDUAL COMMENTS EARLIER IN THE PUBLIC COMMENTS YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THIS SPECIFICALLY?

>> SPEAKER: I DO NOT HAVE IN ADDITION TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS BUT I BELIEVE THEY DEFINITELY APPLY IN THIS

SITUATION. >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU.

THEY WERE READ INTO THE RECOMMENDATIONS EARLIER.

NEXT CALLER? 6320.

DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM SPECIFICALLY? PRESS IF YOU DO. NEXT CALLER.

WE WILL GO BACK TO 2662. DO YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THE ITEM

SPECIFICALLY? >> SPEAKER: YES I DO.

MY NAME IS TERRY MILITANT 3802 HIDDEN VALLEY CIRCLE IN ROWLETT. COUNSEL, YOU HAVE HEARD ME MAKE A PRESENTATION AT LEAST IT'S BEEN READ IN EARLIER IN THE MEETING ABOUT THE PROBLEM OR LACK OF TRANSPARENCY WITH THE CITY OF ROWLETT. THIS CONTINUES THE WHOLE REGIME OF NOT BEING TRANSPARENT. WHAT IS ATTEMPTING TO BE DONE IS TO HIDE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT DEEP WITHIN YOUR AGENDA PACKET. NOBODY SEES EXCEPT YOU NORMALLY. A CITIZEN CAN GET A CHANCE TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT BUT THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH A LOT OF EFFORT.

I HAVE ASKED HER TO EXPLAIN HOW SHE THINKS THE CITY IS COMPLYING WITH STATE LAW IN THIS REGARD.

SHE REFERRED ME BACK TO THE ATTORNEY AND SAID SHE PERSONALLY WOULDN'T TALK TO ME ABOUT IT.

THE ATTORNEYS CAME UP WITH A SOMEWHAT CONVOLUTED EXPLANATION AS TO WHY WE WOULD NOT HAVE A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE COMP PLAN AMENDMENTS. I DON'T FOLLOW IT AND I DON'T THINK IT'S CORRECT BUT THE BIGGEST ISSUE THAT I RAISED WAS, HOW IN THE WORLD CAN THIS BE LEGAL IF YOU DON'T EVEN PUT THE COMP PLAN AMENDMENT ON THE AGENDA? TEXAS SUPREME COURT HAS RULED ON THIS.

YOU CANNOT DO SOMETHING OR TAKE ACTION ON SOMETHING THAT IS NOT ON THE AGENDA. COMP PLAN AMENDMENTS ARE NOT ON THE AGENDA. IF YOU PASS THIS, IT WILL BE

TECHNICALLY ILLEGAL. >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU MR. MILLIGAN. WE HAVE GONE THROUGH ALL OF THE CALLERS. I WILL NOW READ INTO THE RECORD

¦ >> MAYOR: DO YOU WANT ME TO HELP YOU? WE COULD GO BACK AND FORTH.

>> SPEAKER: I GOT THEM ALL RIGHT HERE.

OKAY. THE FIRST TONY RORY MEN AND LADIES OF HONOR. PLEASE ACCEPT THIS LETTER OF MY FULL SUPPORT FOR THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGE IN CONSIDERATION FROM SF ã10 TO SF ã5. FURTHERMORE I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY GREAT RESPECT TO CORNERSTONE CHURCH AND THEIR STRONG COMMITMENT TO THE ROWLETT COMMUNITY.

MY LATE HUSBAND WAS THE PASTOR OF CORNERSTONE CHURCH WHEN THE PROPERTY MENTIONED WAS PURCHASED. HIS VISION WAS FOR A BEAUTIFUL CHURCH TO BE CONSTRUCTED AND PART OF THE LAND TO BE FOR RESIDENTIAL LIVING HERE YOU WILL HONOR HIM BY GIVING YOUR APPROVAL OF THIS REZONING. I FEEL THE THREAT OF THOUSAND $400,000 HOMES WILL TO BE REBUILT WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL ASSET TO THE AREA WITH MANY DIVERSE PROPERTIES AROUND IT.

ALAN GREGORY WAS THE PASTOR FOR 30 YEARS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

>>> CAROLYN BRUMFIELD. JULY 6, 2006 BOBWHITE DRIVE, ROWLETT. I AM SENDING THIS EMAIL TO LET YOU ALL KNOW I'M IN FAVOR OF THE REZONING OF THE LAKESHORE VILLAGE FOR CORNERSTONE ASSEMBLY GOD CHURCH FROM SF ã 10 TO SF ã5. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>>> SHARON MARINO VIOLET DRIVE FLOWER HILL NUMBER 3. CITY COUNCIL AS A CORNERSTONE MEMBER AND ROWLETT CITIZEN I SUPPORT THE PROPERTY ON DEL ROCK FROM SF ã10 TO SF ã5.

THANK YOU. >>> RICHARD MYERS BOARD SECRETARY CORNERSTONE CHURCH. THESE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING AS YOU DELIVERY ON THE PROPOSAL BEFORE YOU.

IT'S CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT LAKESHORE VILLAGE AND THE CORNERSTONE CAMPUS WERE DESIGNED IN CONCERT.

THE OBJECT WAS AND REMAINS THAT BOTH PROPERTIES WILL SURROUND THE NEIGHBORHOODS TO PROVIDE QUALITY HOMES AND CONTAIN MATERIAL AND OPEN SPACE HERE NOT JUST FOR NEW RESIDENTS BUT THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO ENJOY. OME PEOPLE EXPRESS CONCERNS OF THE LOSS AS THE MEADOW AS THE LAND BEING THE CHURCH'S PROPERTY AS OUR LAND HAS BEEN ENJOYED BY NEIGHBORS FOR MANY YEARS. FROM ANYTHING FROM PARKING CARS, BOATS OR ATVS AND WALKING THE DOG.

DESIGNING LAKESHORE VILLAGE THE CHURCH HAS DELIBERATELY PLANNED TO KEEP A LARGE PART OF THE MEADOW FOR NEIGHBORING RESIDENTS TO ENJOY AS THE AREA EAST AND WEST OF THE NEW CHURCH SITE IS PLANNED TO REMAIN OPEN AREA APPROXIMATELY FIVE ACRES OF LAND. THE OVERALL PLAN FOR THE 34 ACRES MUCH OF THE OPEN AREA IS PRESERVED.

THE CHURCH CAMPUS WILL LEAVE 7+ ACRES OF OPEN LAND FOR THE COMMUNITY TO USE. THE USE OF THE LAND IS NOT RESTRICTED TO THE HOMEOWNERS AND THE NEW LAKESHORE DEVELOPMENT AND WILL BE OPEN TO ANYONE IN THE COMMUNITY WHO WISH TO ENJOY IT. IT IS OUR DESIRE THAT THE AREA BE OPEN TO OUR NEIGHBORS AS CITY ORDINANCES ALLOW.

THIS WILL BE AN IRREGULAR SHAPE PARCEL AS WELL AS HAVING TO WORK THE ON THE PLAN FOR THE NEW CHURCH SITE.

NO PROPOSED LOTS WILL HAVE ANY VIEW OF THE LIKE THAT IN ADDITION WE HAVE SEEN THIS COMPANY TAKE PART NOT ONLY THE CHURCH'S DIRECTION BUT ALSO THE DIRECTION FROM THE CITY'S PROFESSIONAL STAFF AS WELL AS FROM NEIGHBORS AND PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION OVER THE COURSE OF THIS THOROUGH ZONING PROCESS. WE HOPE THE CITY WILL ENCOURAGE AND RECOGNIZE THE EFFORTS AND SUPPORT THE COMPANY'S ZONING REQUEST. THE NONRESIDENTIAL LAND ON THE NORTHERN ORDER PRODUCES OBSTACLES GIVEN THE EXISTING LAND USED TO THE NORTH. THE PLANTS PRESENTED BY SCORE BERG ALLOW NONRESIDENTIAL PROPERTY ON THE NORTHERN BORDER TO THE EXISTING DEVELOPMENT ON THE WEST AND SOUTH SIDE OF THE PROPERTY. THEY HAVE MATCHED THE COPIES TO THE SOUTH AND WEST AND HAVE MADE ENHANCEMENT CONCESSIONS TO THE PROPERTY OWNERS TO THE SOUTH TO PROVIDE PRIVACY AND LIFE-SIZE HOMES INCLUDING BEING THE LARGEST LOTS WITH 2000 SQUARE FEET MINIMUM HOMES ABUTTING THE LINES WITH REAR SETBACKS FROM LOTS TO BE 15 FOOT MINIMUM IN AGREEING TO INSTALL AN 18 FOOT TALL WOODEN FENCE FOR THE ADJOINING NEIGHBORS TO THE SOUTH AND NORTH.

IT SHOULD ALSO BE NOTED THAT THE LAND RAISED 17 FEET TO THE HIGHEST POINT OF THE TRACK ON THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF THE DEVELOPMENT. THIS FACT IN THE CONJUNCTION WITH THE FACT OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PRESERVES THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE EXISTING MATURE TREES AND WILL PREDOMINANTLY PRESERVE THE NEW VIEW OF THE HOMES ON THE EAST SIDE OF DEL ROCK WITH RESPECT TO PROPERTY VALUES ¦

>>> MATT HYATT. GRANT STREET ROW, ROWLETT.

THOSE MOMS ARE BEING SOLD BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN STARTED.

THE HOMES THAT THEY INTEND TO BUILD ON DEL ROCK WILL BE IN HIGH QUALITY AND HIGH DEMAND. THIS WILL BE A COMPLEMENTARY ADDITION TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD. ANOTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION IS THESE ARE SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES NOT APARTMENTS.

THESE CONSIDER THIS REZONING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

I FEEL THAT THIS WILL ENHANCE THE AREA AND BRING MANY FAMILIES TO THIS WONDERFUL COMMUNITY.

THANK YOU. >>> SUZANNE AND BLOSS HERRERA.

8205 MARTHA LANE ROW LET. WE DISAPPROVE OF THE REZONING BECAUSE WE DON'T APPROVE OF THE DEVELOPMENT.

THE LARGE TREES ON OUR PROPERTY LINE THE KEEP THE FLOODING TO THE BACK OF OUR YARD COULD DIE IF BEING PLACED WITH A NEW

[02:30:03]

DWELLING 10 TO 15 FEET OF OUR PROPERTY LINE.

IT'S THE SAME FOR THE DEVELOPMENT THAT ARE SMASHED WITHIN HOA FENCE THAT WILL DROP OUR PROPERTY VALUES.

THERE'S FLOODING ALONG MARTHA LANE THAT BORDER THE MEADOW TO DIFFERENT DEGREES. SOME HAVE ONE FOOT OF WATER AND HEAVY RAIN AND OTHERS HAVE SMALL PUDDLES NEAR THEIR BACK LAWNS OR A POND BEHIND THEIR FENCE THREE MONTHS IN THE SPRING. THIS PROBLEM IS A CITY PROBLEM THAT HAS LASTED 19 YEARS FOR THE FIRST OWNERS.

THE CORNERSTONE DEED WAS PLOTTED BY MY HUSBAND FOR ME.

THERE PROPERTY LINE DOES NOT COME TO THE EIGHT LINES AND THE CAD WHICH IS IN HER ACCURATE. IT IS NOT FAIR FOR THEM TO CROSS THE PROPERTY LINE TO OUR FENCES.

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF AN HOA FENCE THAT CLOSE TO OTHER FENCES. I AM CONCERNED ALL THE TREES WILL BE CUT DOWN EXCEPT THE LUCKY BUNCH.

I AM SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF LIFE IN CORNERSTONE SUBURBIA.

I FEEL THEY ARE BREAKING THE NUISANCE LAW FLOOD HAZARD AREAS 46 ã31 ABUTTING PROPERTY OWNER SECTION 77 502 ADEQUATE STORMWATER DRAINAGE. WE CARED FOR THE TREES ON OUR PROPERTY LINE 10+ YEARS SO WE COULD CLAIM PRESCRIPTIVE EASEMENT OF TREES GROWING OVER THE PROPERTY LINE.

I WOULD RATHER LIKE TO APPLY TO THE CITY COUNCIL OF ROWLETT FOR A VARIANCE OF MY BACK FOR TO GO AROUND THE TREES.

THE TREE BETWEEN MY NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR AND MYSELF HAS A SURVEY PIN MARKING THE BOUNDARY LINE BETWEEN THE PROPERTIES.

THAT MAKES IT A BOUNDARY MARKER AND IS PROTECTED UNDER TEXAS STATE LAW. YOU ARE FREE TO VIEW MY HUSBAND'S DRAWING OF CORNERSTONE ESTATE.HANK YOU

FOR TIME. >>> DENNIS O'REILLY HIDDEN VALLEY CIRCLE ROETT. MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL.

MY OBSERVATIONS ON THE PROPOSALS ARE AS FOLLOWS.

THIS IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE SURROUNDING AREA AND CITY OF ROWLETT PLAN. NUMBER OF WAIVERS IS SIGNIFICANT HERE THOSE MOST CONCERNING IS THE STREET RIGHT-OF-WAY LOT SIZE. YES THE DEVELOPER HAS PROPOSED VARIATIONS OF LOT SIZES BUT STILL BELOW THE CURRENT REZONING AND COMPREHENSIVE PREHENSIVE PLAN.

GIVEN THE SIZE OF HOMES, THE FRONT ENTRANCE WILL CREATE A TUNNEL VISIONAFFECT WHEN CARS ARE PARKED ON THE STREET IT WILL BE MORE APPARENT AND LESS APPEALING.

THE DEVELOPER HAS REVISED THEIR PLANS FOR SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE PAST NINE MONTHS. I SEE NO REASON THAT THEY CAN'T CONTINUE TO SHARPEN THEIR PENCIL.

THE DEVELOPMENT IS THAT IT WILL BE HIDDEN BY THE CEMETERY AND THE CHURCH. LOW ZONE DEVELOPMENT CAN BE CREATED ON THIS SITE. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE PLAN.

GIVEN THE PROXIMITY OF INTERSTATE 30, A GATED COMMUNITY AND HIGH-VALUE HOMES WOULD DO WELL SINCE THEY ARE HIDDEN BY THE CEMETERY IN CHURCH.

AS OTHERS HAVE MENTIONED TO DO THIS PLAN WOULD BE ILLEGAL.

I ENCOURAGE THE CITY COUNCIL TO DO THIS AND LOOK INTO IT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DUE DILIGENCE IN THIS MANNER.

>>> D MICHAEL AND CINDY MILBY. THIS EMAIL IS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR LAKEWOOD VILLAGE. WE RESIDE AT 3810 CATALINA VILLAGE. THANK YOU.

>>> CHERYL BROWN. AUGUST 4, 2001 MARTHA LANE, ROWLETT. I LIVE ADJACENT TO THE PROPOSED PROJECT. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THE REZONING AS IT DEVIATES FROM THE CITIES READ REZONING GOALS.

IT'S ZONED SF ã10 LIKE THE MEADOWS AND OTHER HOMES.

WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW DEVELOPERS TO MANIPULATE THE ZONE FOR PROFIT. THIS IS CURRENTLY REZONE FOR CITY SETBACK. THEY SHOULD FOLLOW OUR CITY AND COMMITTEE STANDARDS. THESE VOTE NO AND GIVE A COMMUNITY MANDATE TO BOTH SKORBURG COMPANY AND PROPERTY MANAGER TO SET A CLEAR EXPECTATION THAT THEY CANNOT SIMPLY KEEP RETURNING WITH THE SAME FUNDAMENTAL PROPOSAL WHICH HAS CONTINUOUSLY IGNORED THE REZONING PROCESS.

PLEASE PUT THE CITY FIRST. THE LARGE CHANGE IN THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION AND LAST ACCESS TO THE LAST MEETING WAS THE ONLY REASON THIS HAS RECEIVED A POSITIVE RECOMMENDATION TO THE BOARD FOR THEY BLACK HISTORY AND CONTEXT.

THE CHURCH AND SKORBURG COMPANY HAVE ROUTINELY STACKED CALLS WITH PEOPLE FROM OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY AND PEOPLE WHO BENEFIT FROM THE SALE. I KNOW THE CHURCH WILL RECEIVE A MONETARY ASSET TO REALIZE A PLAN TO REBUILD A NEW CHURCH WITH A DEVELOPMENT THAT RESPECTS THE COMMUNITY AND FOLLOWS GUIDELINES PUT IN PLACE FOR CITY DEVELOPMENT AND CITY PLAN OR THE COUNCIL HAS TOLD BOTH PARTIES BEFORE TO RETURN WITH A PROPER PLAN. FINALLY TELL THEM THAT THE PLAN MUST FOLLOW THE SF ã10 RULES. THANK YOU AND VOTE NO.

>>> AMY C COKE. 3314 SCOTT DRIVE.

[02:35:03]

I SUPPORT THE REZONING OF SKORBURG COMPANY ON LAKESHORE

VILLAGE. >>> MELINDA BERNAL. AM OPPOSED TO THE REZONING OF PROPERTY.

I OPPOSE CHANGING THE PROPERTY FROM SKORSF ã10 TO SF ã5.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU LAURA FOR ALL OF THAT.

AT THIS TIME WE WILL CLOSE PUBLIC HEARING AND ADDRESS ANYTHING WE NEED TO ADDRESS WITH THE PUBLIC COMMENTS.

I FIRST WANT TO GO TO THE CITY ATTORNEY TO ADDRESS THOSE COMMENTS. I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ADDRESSED THIS PUBLICLY BEFORE BUT PLEASE DO IT AGAIN IN THIS INSTANCE.

B3 I WOULD BE HAPPY TO. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS. I AM PEEVED WITH SOMEONE GOING ONLINE AND SAYING IN A PUBLIC HEARING THAT MY LEGAL ADVICE IS CRIMINALLY SUSPECT.HAT IS SLANDEROUS AND DEFAMATORY IN NATURE. PERSONAL ATTACKS AGAINST ME HAVE NO PLACE IN THIS CONTEXT. I WILL SAY BECAUSE I'M SURE THEY ARE STILL LISTENING IN THAT IF IT PERSISTS I HAVE CERTAIN LEGAL REMEDIES AS A PRIVATE CITIZEN AND ATTORNEY.

FOR OUR PURPOSES IS EVENING IS THE ISSUE OF CHAPTER 213 OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE WHICH DEALS WITH COMPREHENSIVE PLANS.

THE PROVISIONS SAY MAY, NOT SHALL.

THE PROVISIONS ARE PERMISSIVE NOT MANDATORY.

THERE AREN'T ATTORNEY GENERAL FEELINGS AND CASES THAT DEAL WITH THESE COMP PLANS BUT THERE IS ONE THAT INCIDENTALLY CAME OUT LAST YEAR PER THE CITY OF PLANO AND THEIR PROCESS.

THE CITY COURT OF APPEALS IN DALLAS SAID THE PROCEDURES AND PROCESS OF AMENDING COMP PLANS IN CHAPTER 213 IS NOT EXCLUSIVE OR MANDATORY BUT PERMISSIVE. IT ALLOWS CITIES TO BYPASS PROCEDURES THAT ARE SET FORTH IN THAT STATUTE.

DURING THE CITIZENS INPUT PORTIONS THIS EVENING THE MAYOR READ A STATEMENT FROM A MR. SCOLA WHO SAID, LET ME SEE IF I CAN LOCATE IT. HE SAID SOMETHING LIKE, IN CONVERSATIONS WITH OUR CITY ATTORNEY, HE AGREES THAT REZONING MUST BE DONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE COMP PLAN.

I HAVE NEVER HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THAT MAN BEFORE AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHO HE IS. WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE PROCESS, THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN MAY BE AMENDED HE IS SAYING THIS AS IF IT WERE THE LAW. THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN MAY BE AMENDED FOLLOWING PUBLIC HEARING OTHERWISE IT CANNOT BE AMENDED? HE IS MAKING THAT UP OR SOMEONE IS GIVING HIM FALSE INFORMATION.

AND HE DOESN'T KNOW THAT HE IS TELLING A FALSEHOOD.

FOR OUR PURPOSES IS EVENING SPOT ZONING COULD REALLY BE DEFINED BY THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT IN A CASE DATING BACK TO 1981. I AM FAIRLY FAMILIAR WITH ZONING BECAUSE OF BEEN REPRESENTING CITIES FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS AND HAVE SPOKEN AT SEMINARS INCLUDING APA SEMINARS DEALING WITH BASIC AND ZONING AND ADVERSE CONDEMNATION.

MY FIRM SPECIALIZES IN NOTHING BUT MUNICIPAL LAW.

THAT'S ALL WE DO. SPOT ZONING IS SINGLING OUT A SPECIFIC SMALL TRACT OF LAND FOR TREATMENT DIFFERENT FROM USES THAT ARE CONSISTENT WITH SURROUNDING PROPERTIES.

USUALLY FOR AN IMPROPER PURPOSE.

I GUESS YOU COULD, A DEVELOPERS LAWYER IS TRYING TO SUE A CITY COULD SAY DENIAL OF A PLAN DEVELOPMENT THE GRANTING OF A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT IS WITH DEVELOPING AND SPOT ZONING EVERYWHERE. SPOT ZONING IS WHEN YOU SINGLE OUT A SPECIFIC TRACT OF PROPERTY FOR ZONING THAT IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE USES THAT ARE COMMON AROUND SURROUNDING PROPERTIES. IN OUR ZONING REGULATIONS WE TALK ABOUT ZONING CHANGES, ONE OF THE CRITERIA ARE WHAT ARE THE SURROUNDING USES AND ARE THEY CONSISTENT? NONE OF OUR DECISIONS HAVE BEEN ARBITRARY OR UNREASONABLE.

ARBITRARY OR CAPRICIOUS IS THIS STANDARD OF THE ZONING ORDINANCE. A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT ZONING ORDINANCE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THEM THEY ARE NOT SPOT ZONING.

IT WOULD BE COMPLETELY INCONSISTENT WITH THE USE OF THE SURROUNDING LANDS. SOMEONE MIGHT BE ABLE TO ARGUE THAT BUT UNDER THIS CASE TONIGHT CLEARLY THAT IS NOT THE CASE. SO, REALLY, I AM A BIT CONCERNED BECAUSE THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME CAMPAIGN THAT MR. MILLIKEN HAS INITIATED BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THAT COMPREHENSIVE PLANS CAN ONLY BE AMENDED WITH A LONG PROCESS.

Y'ALL HAVE THE CHOICE. WHEN WE ADOPT COMPREHENSIVE PLANS IN THE CITY, EVERY SEVERAL YEARS AND IT IS A LONG

[02:40:04]

AND DRAWN OUT PROCESS. A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IS NOTHING BUT A GUIDELINE. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE RELIED ON BY P&Z AND COUNSEL FOR SPECIFIC PROPERTIES.

IT IS NOT BINDING. IT IS A PROVISION BY LAW AND ALL COMP PLANS THAT SAY COMP PLAN PROVISIONS DO NOT CONSTITUTE REZONING. IT IS SIMPLY A GUIDELINE OR YOU CAN AMENDED ANYWAY YOU WANT. YOU COULD AMENDED A COMP PLAN IF YOU WANTED TO WITH P&Z AND COUNSEL AND NOTICES IN PUBLIC HEARINGS. OUR ZONING ORDINANCE EVERYONE THAT WE ADOPT IN THE CITY SAYS THAT THE ORDINANCE AFTER A P&Z CONSIDERATION, PUBLIC HEARING, NOTICES AND COUNSEL CONSIDERATIONS THAT FOLLOWS PUBLIC HEARINGS AND NOTICES, EVERY ONE OF OUR ORDINANCES SAYS IT AMENDS THE CONFERENCE OF PLAN, THE COMPETENCE OF ZONING ODINANCE AND THE COMPREHENSIVE MAP OF THE CITY OF ROWLETT.

THEY SAID THIS FOR 15 YEARS AND BEFORE THAT I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THAT THAT THEY PROBABLY SAID EXACTLY THE SAME THING. EVERY SINGLE ZONING ORDINANCE SINCE THE 1980S. TYPE OF LANGUAGE THAT AUTOMATICALLY AMENDS COMP PLANS AFTER NOTICES AND PUBLIC HEARINGS IS PREVALENT AMONG A NUMBER OF OTHER CITIES THAT I HAVE PERSONAL FAMILIARITY WITH. WE ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL. THESE GENTLEMEN THAT ARE SAYING THESE THINGS AND ATTACKING ME PERSONALLY THAT ARE ACTUALLY IN CAGING WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE DEFAMATORY CONDUCT ARE FLATLY WRONG. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO STOP THEM BUT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT AS A CITIZEN TO SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT UNTIL IT BECOMES A CIVIL MATTER.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU MR. BERMAN. COUNSEL, BEFORE I TAKE A MOTION, ANY QUESTIONS FOR ANY PARTY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS? I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION IF SOMEONE HAS ONE. COUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE TO REZONE THE PROPERTY FROM SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL, SF ã 10 TO SF ã5 AND PLAN DEVELOPMENT FOR SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL, SF ã5 PRESENTED WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS THE OPENING SPACE AND AMENITIES AS SHOWN ON THE LANDSCAPING PLAN SHALL BE PROVIDED IN THE GENERAL LOCATION AND SPECIFIC QUANTITIES AS DEPICTED WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS.

FURTHER LANDSCAPING AND HEART GIVING TREATMENTS BE UTILIZED ALONG THE SOUTHERN ENTRYWAY TO THE COMMUNITY AND THE INLET OF SECONDARY INTO A REQUIREMENT. SECOND, THE COORIDOR OF THE OPEN SPACE BETWEEN THE EXISTING CEMETERY AND LOT 30 BLOCK BE INCREASED AND THAT THE DEVELOPER HAVE THE LATITUDE TO MOVE LOT BE AS LONG AS THE OPEN SPACE DOES NOT DECREAS.

AND THE TREES SURVEY PLAN SHOWS THE TREE MASSES IN THE OPEN

SPACE AS PRESERVED. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WILL

SECOND THAT MOTION. >> MAYOR: BEFORE I ASKED I GOT A SECOND FROM COUNCIL MEMBER ROBERT BLAKE MARGOLIS.

FOR THE WE TAKE THE BOAT DO WE HAVE DISCUSSION? COUNCIL MEMBER ROBERT BLAKE MARGOLIS?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I BELIEVE THIS PROPOSAL IS IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE ROWLETT 2020 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND THE OVERALL INTENT ON THE DEVELOPMENT CODE IS THE INTENTION TO OPEN SPACE AND AMENITIES AND OPEN-SPACE DISTRIBUTION ENCOURAGES A HIGHER-QUALITY DEVELOPMENT AND STRENGTHENS NEIGHBORHOOD LIVABILTY.

SUBSEQUENTLY I WILL BE SUPPORTIVE OF THIS PROJECT WITH THE AMENDMENT PROPOSED BY THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION

AND BY COUNCILMEMBERS. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER MARGOLIS. ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

COUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WILL ECHO WHAT BLAKE SAID. THIS IS A DEVELOPMENT THAT HAS GONE ON FOR A LONG TIME AND I THINK SKORBURG COMPANY HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF WORKING WITH THE CHURCH AND GOING BACK AND FORTH AND GETTING THIS INTO A POSITION THAT WORKS FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED. I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR CITY ATTORNEY DAVID BERMAN FOR LAYING THAT OUT FOR THE OTHER COMMENTS THAT WERE MADE TONIGHT AND PUTTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT SO TO SPEAK SO, THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILWOMAN BROWN? > COUNCIL MEMBER: I HAVE A QUESTION, DO WE NEED TO ADD TO THE MOTION THAT ALL THE WOODEN FENCES NEED TO BE EIGHT FEET IN HEIGHT AND BOARD ON BOARD?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: DOES THAT NEED TO BE IN THE MOTION IF

THAT IS SOME THAT WE WISH? >> SPEAKER: YES.

[02:45:02]

I BELIEVE COUNCIL MEMBER MARGOLIS DID SAY IN THE SECOND COMPLIANCE WITH THEM BUT I THINK I WOULD LIKE YOU TO

REITERATE THAT PLEASE. >> COCOUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH CAN YOU ADD THAT TO THE MOTION IN THAT?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I CAN BUT MOTION WAS AS PRESENTED.

WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS WHICH I SPELLED OUT AND IT WAS PRESENTED WITH EIGHT FOOT MASONARY WALL AND THE LOWER FENCE. I WILL ACCEPT THAT ADDITION IF

IT CLEARS IT UP. >> MAYOR: WHEN YOU SAY AS PRESENTED ARE YOU SAYING AS THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION? THERE WAS SOME DISCREPANCY BETWEEN STAFF RECOMMENDATION AND P&Z SO I GET LOST IN IT, TO.

>> IN THE PACKET ON ITEM 8A IT DOES SPELL OUT WHEN INTO BUT AT THE BOTTOM WHEN IT GIVES OUT HE RECOMMENDATION IT ON GIVES OUT WANTED TO END THE THREE IS A PART ABOUT THE EIGHT FOOT WALL. THAT COULD BE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. THE THREE IS MISSING ON THE

BOTTOM. >> MAYOR: I'M GOING TO ASK IF COUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH WOULD AMEND HIS MOTION IF HE

WOULD? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WOULD AMEND THAT TO ACCEPT THE EIGHT FOOT FENCE.

>> MAYOR: COUNCIL MEMBER ROBERT BLAKE MARGOLIS ARE YOU OKAY

WITH THAT? >> MAYOR: DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION? EVEN DAVID IS SAYING I AM DOING

IT OKAY. >> SPEAKER: YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT AND IT'S NOT EASY TO DO, EITHER.

GOING TO MAKE, DAVID SAID IT ENOUGH.

THE COMMENTS I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS THERE WAS SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS KEEPS COMING BACK TO US, IT KEEPS COMING BACK TO US. YOU KNOW, THERE IS A REASON THIS HAS COME BEFORE P&Z ONLY TIMES BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT BEEN SUPPORTIVE OF CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THIS DEVELOPMENT AND CITY STAFF HAS NOT BEEN SUPPORTIVE OF CERTAIN ASPECTS OF TH DEVELOPMENT. WE WANTED THEM TO MAKE CHANGES TO THE P&Z AND TO THE STAFF. IT HAS BEEN AN ARDUOUS PROCESS BUT A PROCESS THAT HAS RESULTED IN A MUCH BETTER PRODUCT THAN WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY PRESENTED IN A PROCESS THAT RESULTED IN A PRODUCT THAT HAS BEEN DEEMED ACCEPTABLE BY P&Z AND CITY STAFF ASSERTED IN THE EXCEPTIONS THAT THEY ARE ASKING FOR ADDITIONAL CHANGES.ND WE HAVE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR SO WE WILL FIND OUT IF IT IS ACCEPTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL.

TO ME IT IS NOT A NEGATIVE THAT IT HAS COME BEFORE US ONLY TIMES. I KNOW IT'S DIFFICULT THAT CAUSES TIME CONSTRAINT AND CAUSES THE PUBLIC TO RESPOD TO IT AND I UNDERSTAND THAT AND EMPATHIZE WITH THAT.

AT THE END OF THE DAY IF IT RESULTS IN A BETTER PRODUCT AND BETTER CITY OF ROWLETT THEN IT SHOULD BE.

CAN WE TAKE A VOTE? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND AND THAT PASSES 7 ã0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LAND OWNER AND THE APPLICANT IN THANK YOU CITY STAFF FOR YOUR INCREDIBLY HARD WORK ON THIS

THANK YOU LAURA, I APPRECIATE THIS.

AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROPOSAL. THANK YOU, TAMMIE FOR READING

[02:50:02]

OUT THE CAPTION. THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE BAYSIDE DEVELOPMENT.

IT WOULD BE A SINGLE-FAMILY, CONSIST OF SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES, MIXED USE RESIDENTIAL USES AS WELL AS RESTAURANT IN RETAIL USES. HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL, THREE SEPARATE APPROVALS WILL BE NECESSARY AND THOSE ARE AS YOU READ OUT, ONE IS TO REZONE THREE PARCELS ALONG THE LAKESHORE FROM CODE NEW NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT TWO FORM-BASED CODE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD AND IN ADDITION IN ORDER TO ENABLE A MIXED-USE RESIDENTIAL PRODUCT A SPECIA USE PERMIT FOR MULTIUSE FAMILIES WILL BE REQUIRED AND THIS IS FOR PROPERTY LOCATED IN THE SOUTHEAST PORTION OF THE PROPERTY. LASTLY, THE APPLICANT PROPOSAL IS TO CONSOLIDATE THIS OR TO ENCAPSULATE THESE TWO ACTIONS AND APPROVE OR SEEK APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO AN EXISTING FRAMEWORK PLAN WITH CONSISTENT VARIATIONS TO ALLOW FOR SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS CONTAINED WITH IN THE BAYSIDE SPECIAL DISTRICT. ON NOVEMBER 1, 2016 THE CITY COUNCIL APPROVED A REZONING FOR A PORTION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT APPROXIMATELY 20 ACRES FROM FB-NN TO FB-UN AND ALSO APPROVED A FRAMEWORK LAND THAT ALLOWED FOR A DENSE HOUSING PRODUCT.

THE ATTEMPT WAS TO CREATE ONE RECORD WITH RENTAL HOUSING.

THIS PROJECT WAS NOT REALIZED. FAST FORWARD THREE YEARS LATER IN NOVEMBER THE FORM-BASED CODE WAS AMENDED TO CREATE A SPECIAL CODE FOR MULTIFAMILY USES. THE INTENT TO THIS CODE WAS TO ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL OVERSIGHT AND PERHAPS LAND-USE ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE IF THE PROPOSED USE WAS INDEED IN KEEPING WITH FORM-BASED CODE INTEGRATION WITH SEVERAL USES AND ALLOWING FOR VERTICAL INTEGRATION AS WELL.

THIS REQUEST DOES CONTAIN A MIXED-USE COMPONENT.

IT IS A MIXED-USE BUILDING WITH 15 CONDOMINIUM UNITS CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTIAL UNITS AS WELL AS GROUND-FLOOR RETAIL REQUIRING THE SEP. COUNSEL I WILL TRY TO ADDRESS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE COMPONENTS OF THIS REQUEST TO GIVE YOU A SOLID BACKGROUND ON WHAT IT IS THAT IS REQUESTED AND WHY IT'S BEING REQUESTED. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.O GIVE YOU SOME VISUAL REPRESENTATION OF THE AREA.

AS YOU WOULD RECALL THE THREE PARCELS ALONG THE LAKESHORE APPROXIMATELY 2.08 ACRES. THESE PARCELS THAT ARE ALONG THE WESTERN PORTION OF SUNSET BOULEVARD WOULD REQUIRE THE REZONING. FOUR TRACKS PER THE TOTAL AREA OF THE PROPERTY WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY 22 ACRES.

19.9 ACRES GENERALLY BOUNDED BY THE BAYSIDE TOWNHOME NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE NORTHWEST. A RAIL LINE TO THE NORTH AND THE MANSIONS AT BAYSIDE APARTMENTS TO THE SOUTHEAST AND SOUTHWEST IS THE LOCATION OF THE SITE.

THIS WOULD INCORPORATE THE MIXED-USE BUILDING AS WELL AS WELL AS CASITAS, TOWNHOMES AND RETAIL USES.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. AS PART OF THE PROPOSED FRAMEWORK PLAN THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING A CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN. I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ACCESS AS WE LOOK AT THIS PROPOSED SITE PLAN TO PROVIDE BETTER REPRESENTATION. SUNSET RIVARD IS THE PRIMARY THOROUGHFARE AND IS A 65 FOOT TWO LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY.

YOU CAN SEE THAT ON YOUR MAP AND THAT'S IDENTIFYING SUNSET BOULEVARD. EXCEPT FOR ON STREET PARKING NO ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS ROADWAY WILL BE REQUIRED.

BAYSIDE DRIVE TO THE NORTH AS YOU CAN SEE WOULD TRAVEL ACROSS THIS SIDE OR CUT THROUGH THE SITE.

IT IS A 50 FOOT UNDIVIDED ROADWAY AND WILL CONNECT TO THE BAYSIDE TOWNHOME NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE WEST AND THE MANSIONS AT BAYSIDE TO THE EAST. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AS WITH ANY ZONING CASE USE OF PROPERTY UNDER THE CURRENT ZONING IS ALWAYS CONSIDERED AND FLUSHED OUT.

THE PROPERTIES HAVE SEVERAL ZONES ON THEM.

IT IS REQUIRED TO HAVE PORTION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTIES FOR THE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD IS GOVERNED BY A FRAMEWORK PLAN THAT IS NOT REALIZED ALLOWING FOR A SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSING

[02:55:01]

PROJECT ALONG THE LAKESHORE IS INTENDED TO REALIZE A GENERAL SINGLE-FAMILY PRODUCT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE AS I MENTIONED, THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING AN AMENDMENT TO THE EXISTING FRAMEWORK PLAN AND WITH THIS AMENDMENT WOULD ENABLE DECONSTRUCTION OF THE CASITAS, TOWNHOMES, CONDOS AND NEIGHBORHOOD RETAIL. A LARGE CENTRAL OPEN SPACE APPROXIMATELY ONEANDAHALF ACRES WILL BE A FOCAL POINT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND HAVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR RECREATION AND NEIGHBORHOOD GATHERINGS. THE FORM-BASED CODE REQUIRES THAT A MINIMUM OF 20 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL UNITS CONSTRUCTED MUST BE A COMBINATION OF MIXED RESIDENTIAL, SHOP FRONT AND MIXED-USE. THIS IS BASED ON THE ZONING DISTRICT. AT MOST, 80 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL UNITS CONSTRUCTED MUST BE LIVE WORK TOWNHOMES CONCEDE THAT BUILDING TYPES. THIS REQUIREMENT QUALIFIES THE EXISTENCE OF VOTING TYPES AND RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS TO PROVIDE A RANGE OF NEIGHBORHOOD OPPORTUNITIES AND IDENTITIES WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARTICULARLY AS IT RELATES TO THE MIXED-USE BUILDINGS AND THE PROPOSED UNIT MIX COMPLIES WITH THESE RATIOS. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE BAYSIDE DISTRICT IS DEVELOPING RATHER RAPIDLY.

THE COMPATIBILITY ANALYSIS THAT WE CONDUCTED WAS TO DETERMINE THE PROPOSED REQUEST IN RELATIONSHIP TO ZONING ON THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS WHAT IS DEVELOPED AND THE BUILT IN ENVIRONMENT. THE FORM-BASED CODES IS GENERALLY INTENDED TO CREATE PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO EAT, LIVE, CONDUCT BUSINESS AND ENJOY RECREATION OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WHICH IS PRIMARILY RESIDENTIAL IN NATURE WOULD ALSO INCLUDE NEIGHBORHOOD ORIENTED USES.

THE PROPOSED REQUEST WOULD COMPLEMENT THE LAND USE ALREADY ESTABLISHED BY THE BAYSIDE DISTRICTS.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN REFLECTS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND AS YOU CAN SEE IT IS REPLETE FULLY REFLECTED IN THE PINK HATCH AREA AND IT DESIGNATES THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AS MIXED-USE.

THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WOULD HAVE A VARIETY OF USES SUCH AS MIXED RESIDENTIAL USES, DETACHED SINGLE-FAMILY PRODUCT AND SMALLER RESIDENTIAL PRODUCTS.

THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IS IN CONFORMANCE OF THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN AS WELL AS THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE WANTED TO PROVIDE A SNAPSHOT OF THE APPROVED FRAMEWORK PLAN FOR THE PROPERTY WHICH IS THE IMAGE REFLECTED TO THE LEFT AND WHAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING WHICH IS THE FRAMEWORK PLAN TO THE RIGHT.

THOSE ARE THE AMENDMENTS BEING PROPOSED.

THE FRAMEWORK PLAN IS INTENDED TO REFLECT A FEW ELEMENTS PAID THE GENERAL STREET CONNECTIVITY, THE ALLOCATION OF OPEN SPACE, PEDESTRIAN CHIPS AND SPECIFIC DESIGN STANDARDS AND KEY FEATURES. THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED US MORE DETAIL OTHER THAN WHAT YOU SEE OF THE APPROVED PLAN WHICH IS YOUR GENERAL STREET CONNECTIVITY.

THEY HAVE PROVIDED SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT CRITERIA AS WELL WHICH IS THE IMAGE TO THE RIGHT.

I WANT TO TALK WITH THE NEXT SLIDE ABOUT THE KEY FEATURES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS DEVELOPMENT.

THANK YOU. THE KEY ELEMENTS THAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING AS YOU CAN SEE WE HAVE COLOR-CODED THE SITE. THE PLAN TO PROVIDE YOU A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE RESIDENTIAL PRODUCT THAT IS BEING PROPOSED. THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING TO CONSTRUCT 58 CONCEDE TO SINGLE-FAMILY UNITS AND THE 58 CONCEDE TO THINK REALLY SINGLE-FAMILY UNITS TO THE SOUTH WILL BE THE YELLOW PRODUCT AS WELL AS TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN WHICH IS IMPEACHED OR ORANGE.

IN ADDITION YOU CAN SEE PURPLE AND BLUE PRODUCTS TO THE RAILROAD AND THOSE ARE PRIMARILY YOUR TOWNHOME UNITS.

YOU CAN SEE THERE IS ALSO A SOMEWHAT RECTANGULAR SHAPE PROPERTY AT THE CORNER OF THE SITE AND THAT IS PROPOSED TO CONTAIN THE 52 CONDOMINIUM UNITS WITH THE BUILDINGS REFLECTED IN PINK. APPROXIMATELY 64,000 FEET OF RETAIL SPACE WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A RETAIL SPACE AND FOUR STORIES OF MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT.

PORTION OF THE PROPERTY THAT HAS FRONTAGE ALONG THE LAKESHORE WOULD LIKELY BE NINE TO 15,000 SQUARE FEET OF RESTAURANT USES ALONG STOREFRONT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? AS PART OF THIS REQUEST THE APPLICANT HAS REQUESTED A NUMBER OF VARIATIONS AS IT

[03:00:02]

RELATES TO THE FRAMEWORK PLAN AND AS IT RELATES TO THE DEVELOPMENT CRITERIA. I WILL GO THROUGH EACH ONE OF THESE AND THEN SPEAK SPECIFICALLY TO THEM IN A LITTLE MORE DETAIL. IN ORDERTO REALIZE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF THE APPLICANT REQUESTING THEY NEED TO SEEK AN APPROVAL OF VARIATIONS TO ALLOW AN INCREASE IN THE MAXIMUM PERMITTED DWELLING SITE OF THE CASITAS ZERO MINE PRODUCT TO 2400 SQUARE FEET.

A MINIMUM DWELLING UNIT SIZE IS 800 50 SQUARE FEET AND THE MAXIMUM DWELLING UNIT AREA IS 1400 SQUARE FEET.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO DECREASE THE MINIMUM SITE SETBACK FOR THE PRODUCT FROM THE REQUIRED THREE FEET ON ONE SIDE AND 7 FEET ON THE OTHER SIDE TO A ONE BY FOUR FOOT SPLIT. IT WOULD BE ONE FEET ON ONE SIDE AND 4 FEET ON THE OTHER SIDE.

IN A REVISION TO THE ZONE FOR SUNSET BOULEVARD FROM THE REQUIRED 1015 TO THE 5 TO 15 REVISION FROM THE MINIMUM LOT WITH TOWNHOME PRODUCT WHICH IS A RANGE FROM 25 TO 30 FEET TO 22 FEET REVISING THE MINIMUM LOT WIDTH OF THE TOWNHOME PRODUCT ADJACENT TO THE RAILROAD FROM 90 FEET TO 73 FEET DECREASING THE MINIMUM SIDE YARDS FOR THE TOWNHOMES ABUTTING THE PEDESTRIAN OPEN SPACE FROM FIVE FEET TO 10 FEET AND THEN ALLOWING A REDUCTION OF MINIMUM REQUIRED OPEN-SPACE FROM 10 PERCENT TO 9 PERCENT. IF YOU DON'T MIND GOING BACK TO SOMEONE SLIDE SO I CAN SPEAK TO SOME OF THESE VARIANCES THAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING AND THEN WE WILL SKIP A FEW SLIDES.

REALLY SOME OF THE DEVIATIONS PROPOSED ARE RELATED TO THESE LOTS ALONG THE RAILROAD TRACKS TO THESE LOTS THAT HAVE THESE CORE DOORS OR GREEN SPACES WITHIN THIS DEVELOPMENT.

THEN SOME OTHER ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS RELATED TO THE BUILD TO ZONES AND THE BUILD TWO LINES.

NOW WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AS IT RELATES TO THE FIRST REQUESTED DOES INCREASING THE DWELLING UNIT SIZE OF THE CONCEDE TO PROJECT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM COMMITTED DWELLING UNIT AREA OF 1400 SQUARE FEET TO 2400 SQUARE FEET. THE APPLICANT'S JUSTIFICATION IS THAT THE SQUARE FOOTAGE IS LESS THAN THE 2500 SQUARE FOOTAGE MAXIMUM ALLOWED WITHIN THE BAYSIDE RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD AND IT IS ALSO SOUGHT BY FAMILIES AS IT IS A PRODUCT THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE REALIZED IN THIS DEVELOPMENT. STAFF RECOMMENDS THE MAXIMUM DWELLING UNIT OF THE CASITAS OF UNITS BE NO MORE THAN 2000 SQUARE FEET TO FURTHER DIFFERENTIATE AMONG THE BAYSIDE NEIGHBORHOODS AND PROVIDE A SMALLER DETACHED FRAME FOR FAMILIES DESIRING TO LIVE WITHIN A MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT.

AGAIN, THE INTENT OF THE CASITAS SIZE IS DELIBERATE TO ENGAGE THE DIVERSITY AND PRODUCT MIX.

THE PROPOSED REQUEST TO INCREASE THE DRAWING UNIT SIZE TO 2400 SQUARE FEET IS A SIGNIFICANT DEPARTURE FROM THE PERMITTED MAX OF 1400 SQUARE FEET.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A REDUCTION IN THE CONCEDE TO PROJECT AS IT RELATES TO THE SIDE YARD SET BACK FOR THE REQUIRED THREE FOOT SETBACK AND 7 FEET ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH A ONE TO 4 SPLIT AND THE SCREEN AND ILLUSTRATION ON THE SLIDE IN FRONT OF YOU DEPICTS THAT FOR YOU SHOWING PROXIMITY TO ADJACENT PROPERTY LINES. THE APPLICANT HAS INDICATED THAT THIS PROPOSED SIDE YARD SETBACK WITH ONE AND 4 FEET WORKS IN AN URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD SECURELY WITH LOTS THAT ARE 35 FEET WIDE. MORE LIMITED SIDE YARD ENFORCE THE DESIGN DECISION FOR COMMUNITY OPEN-SPACE BRINGING IT TO THE CENTRAL OR FOCAL POINT RATHER THAN HAVE THOSE LARGER PRIVATE YARDS. STAFF DOES CONCUR WITH THE APPLICANT AND IS SUPPORTIVE WITH THIS.

AS IT IS ALLOWING FOR MORE SHARED OPEN-SPACE AND A GREATER SENSE OF COMMUNITY WITHIN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD OR THIS POCKET NEIGHBORHOOD ITSELF. IN ADDITION THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A REDUCTION OR ALTERNATIVE BUILDS TO ZONE ALONG SUNSET BOULEVARD THE LOTS THAT ARE IN THE DASHED RED AREA ON YOUR SCREEN HEAR THEIR IS A FIVE FOOT UTILITY EASEMENT ALONG SUNSET BOULEVARD AND THE FORM-BASED CODE REQUIRES A ZONE

[03:05:02]

OF 5 TO 10 FEET. THE FIVE FOOT UTILITY EASEMENT TO COMPROMISE THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE THAT AND THEREFORE REQUESTING A 5 TO 15 FOOT BUILD TO ALIGN.

THE ADDITIONAL FIVE FEET WILL ALLOW FOR THE CASITAS TO ALLOW A PORCH AND STEP DOWN TO THE STREET.

THIS STEP BACK WILL PROVIDE SEPARATION FROM SUNSET BOULEVARD WHILE ALSO KEEPING THE RELATIONSHIP TO THE STREET AND NOT MINIMIZING THE OVERALL INTENT OF THE PRODUCTS.

THE STAFF IS ALSO WITH THIS PROPOSAL.

IT ALLOWS THE HOME TO RETAIN A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH SUNSET BOULEVARD AND THAT IS BECAUSE THEY WILL BE PROVIDING THOSE PORCHES AND FRONT FAC'ADE ENTRANCE FEATURES.

NEXT SLIDE. THE OCCUPANT IS REQUESTING THE MINIMUM LOT WIDTH OF THE TOWNHOME PROJECT BE REDUCED FROM THE 25 TO 30 FEET TO 22 FEET.

THE REQUEST FOR THIS REDUCTION IS PURELY FOR CONSISTENCY WITH THE TOWNHOME NORTHWEST AND THE APPLICANT DOES ASSERT THAT IT IS TYPICAL FOR ANY NEIGHBORHOOD SETTING FOR THE STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL FOR THIS VARIANCE AS WELL AS IT DOES NOT COMPROMISE THE INTENT FOR THE DISTRICT AND IS CONGRUENT WITH SIMILAR HOUSING PROJECTS IN THE COMMUNITY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA. AS YOU CAN SEE THE PURPLE PRODUCT REPRESENTED AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN ARE THE TOWNHOMES. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO REVISE THE MINIMUM LOT DEPTH OF THE TOWNHOME PRODUCT FROM 90 FEET TO 73 FEET. AGAIN, THEY HAVE TWO PHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS. ONE IS THE RAILROAD AND WHEN IS THE EXTENSION OF BAYSIDE DRIVE. THE MINIMUM LOT DEPTH IS 73 FEET FOR TOWNHOMES AND ALONG THE EXTENSION OF BAYSIDE DRIVE IS A NECESSITY FOR THIS ALIGNMENT THAT I JUST MENTIONED. ALL THE OTHER TOWNHOMES WITHIN THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WOULD COMPLY WITH THE LOT DEPTH REQUIREMENT AND TO THIS REQUEST THERE IS A PHYSICAL HARDSHIP THAT WOULD PREVENT COMPLIANCE WITH THE ELEMENTS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO DECREASE THE MINIMUM FIVE FOOT SIDE YARD SETBACK FOR THE TOWNHOME PRODUCT 20 FEET FOR THE LOTS THAT BUT THE OPEN-SPACE CORE DOORS. IF YOU RECALL ON ONE OF THE SLIDES WITH THE FRAMEWORK PLAN THERE WAS SOME CREAM SPACE BETWEEN THE LOTS AND THIS IS WHERE THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING SOME RELIEF. THE APPLICANT REQUEST TO REDUCE THE SIDE YARDS ON THE COORIDOR TO 2 FEET AND IT IS TO ALLOW FOR A GREATER AREA TO BE DEVOTEDTO PUBLIC OPEN SPACE.

STAFF ALSO CONCURS WITH THIS PROPOSAL.

IT ALSO MINIMIZE THE PRIVATE YARD TO THE EXTENT TO ENABLE THE COMMUNITY MOVEMENT. THE PEDESTRIAN QUARTER HORSE WILL INCREASE BUILDING SEPARATIONS BETWEEN TOWNHOMES AND THE PURPOSE FOR THE OPEN SPACES IS TO ATTRACT THE USE BY RESIDENTS AND THEREFORE THE SETBACK IS REQUIRED FOR ANY STRUCTURE ABUTTING THE OPEN-SPACE.

THESE ARE PEDESTRIAN QUARTER HORSE ERECTING PEOPLE TO OPEN SPACES AS YOU RECALL THE FRAMEWORK PLAN AND THE ASSOCIATED CONCEPT PLAN HAS A LARGE OPEN SPACE, CENTRAL OPEN SPACE. THE SPACE IS APPROXIMATELY THE WIDTH OF THE TOWNHOME OR CASITAS LOT THE PEDESTRIAN COORIDOR THAT WE JUST MENTIONED AND WILL BE COMPRISED OF A CONCRETE PATH AND LANDSCAPING. THE HOMES THAT WILL ABOUT THESE CORE DOORS SHOULD THIS VARIANCE BE APPROVED THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THAT THE HOMES ABUTTING THESE COORIDOR SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE PRIVACY TO THE RESIDENCE AND VISUAL INTEREST TO THE USERS OF THESE CORE DOORS WITH ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING TO ENSURE RESIDENTIAL PRIVACY IS NOT COMPROMISED. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THE ABILITY TO ALLOW A FIVE FOOT SIDEWALK ALONG THE LOCAL RESIDENTIAL STREETS IN PLACE OF THE MINIMUM SIX FOOT REQUIREMENT.

IT IS NOT REQUIRING THIS IN THE FRONTAL STREETS.

A VARIATION IS THERE TO ALLOW SIDEWALK TO ACCOMMODATE THE ANTICIPATED PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH WHAT HAS BEEN PERMITTED ON LOCAL RESIDENTIAL STREETS ARE THE PRECEDENTS HAS BEEN SET IN THE STAFF FINDS US TO BE REASONABLE AND CONFORMANCE WITHIN SIDEWALK CONSTRUCTION IN THE LARGER DEVELOPMENT ITSELF. NEXT SLIDE.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO REDUCE THE MINIMUM REQUIRED OPEN-SPACE FROM 10 PERCENT TO 14 PERCENT.

THE JUSTIFICATION THAT THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED IS

[03:10:02]

INDICATING THAT THE PROPOSED OPEN SPACE MEETS THE INTENT OF THE PROVIDING STREET AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF OPEN SPACE. THE LARGE GATHERING SPACE IS ESSENTIAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD ALLOW PLANS COMMUNITY GATHERINGS LARGE PLAY AREAS AND HAVE SEATING AREAS AND PLAY STRUCTURES WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT.

THE FORM-BASED CODES DOES STATE YOU HAVE A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT OF 14 PERCENT OPEN-SPACE HOWEVER IT MIGHT BE REDUCED BY THE WORK WHICH IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS BY 10 PERCENT AND STAFF IS AMENABLE TO GIVING THAT OVER THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A SECOND DEDUCTION FOR THE STAFF DOES CONCUR THAT THE CENTRAL GREEN SPACE THAT I JUST MENTIONED DOES PROVIDE CONNECTIVITY TO PEDESTRIAN QUARTER HORSE AND MEETS THE INTENTION OF THE FORM-BASED CODE TO HAVE AN OPEN SPACE THAT IS READILY ACCESSIBLE IN PROXIMITY TO SESSIONS OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND ADDITIONS TO THAT THERE ARE PERIPHERAL PEDESTRIAN QUARTER HORSE ARE TREATED WITH HARDSCAPE AND LANDSCAPING THAT WOULD OFFSET THIS ELEMENTS AS WELL. NEXT SLIDE.

TO GIVE YOU SOME VISUAL REPRESENTATION AS IT RELATES TO THE OPEN-SPACE YOU CAN SEE THE CONNECTIVITY TO THIS AND FROM THIS OPEN-SPACE IS READILY ADJACENT OR ABUTS THE RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD ITSELF OR DEVELOPMENTS.

THE EXTENT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD THROUGH THE CORE DOORS I JUST DISCUSSED WITH THE MAINTENANCE OF THE OPEN-SPACE WOULD BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE HOA. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.

THE SECOND COMPONENT OF THIS REQUEST IS THE MIXED-USE BUILDING THAT IS ENCIRCLED IN THAT RED BOX AND IS THAT AREA.

A TRANSITION IS PROVIDED BY THE PROPOSED MIXED-USE BUILDING BETWEEN THE SINGLE-FAMILY PORTION OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHICH WE JUST DISCUSSED WITH THE VARIANCES IN THE MANSIONS OF BAYSIDE WHICH IS TO BE SOUTHERN COMPONENT HERE THIS TRANSITION IS BOTH AN INTRODUCTION OF NONRESIDENTIAL USES INTO THE LAND USE PATTERN OR FROM A MICRO PERSPECTIVE LIVE AND THE MATCHING OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN A MULTI FAMILY STRUCTURES ALSO INCLUDES THAT SEPARATION.

THE PROPOSAL IS TO HAVE CONDOMINIUM DWELLINGS ON UPPER FLOORS AND NEIGHBORHOODS AT THE STREET LEVEL.

APPROXIMATELY 100 PARKING SPACES WILL BE UNDER THE BUILDING. THE SURFACE PARKING WILL NOT BE VISIBLE AND THEN RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS CURRENTLY WE WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT CURRENTLY THE RESIDENTIAL OPTION IS LACKING BY OFFERING CONDO UNITS FOR INDIVIDUAL OWNERSHIP.

IT COMPLETES A TRANSITION BETWEEN SINGLE-FAMILY AND TOWNHOME AREAS TO THE MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD RETAIL OR SERVICE COMPONENT TO IT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA. WITH THE MIXED-USE RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT, THE FORM-BASED CODE AS YOU RECALL RECENTLY WE ADOPTED THE FORM-BASED CODE AMENDMENT TO REQUIRE THE S&P.

IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS IN ADDITION TO THE FRAMEWORK PLAN THAT WE TALKED ABOUT ANY ELEMENTS IN THE PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIVITY AND FRAMEWORK FUND REGARDLESS AND S&P IS REQUIRED.

THESE CONDOMINIUM UNITS ARE CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY UNITS.

BY REQUIRING THE S&P THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING 52 CONDOMINIUM UNIT LOCATED ON THE UPPER FLOORS OF THE MIXED-USE BUILDING. THEY HAVE PROVIDED US A MIX OF PRODUCTS TYPE FOR STUDIOS, 14 WANTED TO BEDROOMS, 28 TWO BEDROOMS AND SIX THREE-BEDROOM UNITS.

THE STREET LEVEL OF THE BUILDING FRONTING SUNSET BOULEVARD WOULD CONTAIN BETWEEN 6000 SQUARE FEET OF NEIGHBORHOOD ORIENTED RETAIL USES.

WE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER VISUAL REPRESENTATION FROM THE ELEVATION STANDPOINT AND GIVING YOU A 3D IMAGE TO BETTER PROVIDE VISUALIZATION AS TO WHAT THIS PRODUCT WOULD LOOK LIKE. IT WOULD BE A MIXED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT WITH FOUR-STORY, UPPER FOUR-STORY WITH MULTIFAMILY UNIT AND THE FOR-SALE CONDOS AND THEN THE GROUND FLOOR ITSELF WOULD RETAIN THE RETAIL COMPONENT.

AS YOU CAN SEE THE ELEVATIONS ARE TO THE TOP WHICH GIVES YOU A GOOD IDEA OF THE ARTICULATION AND THE ELEMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BALCONIES. MORE IMPORTANTLY THE SPATIAL CONFIGURATION OF THIS BUILDING SHOWS TUCK UNDER PARKING AND ALL THE PARKING WILL BE UNDER THE BUILDING AND NO SURFACE PARKING WILL BE VISIBLE. IT WOULD BE A SELF SUSTAINED OR CONTAINS DEVELOPMENT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.

[03:15:04]

THIS IS JUST AN OVERVIEW OF HOW THIS WOULD LOOK.

AGAIN ALL OF THIS PARKING WOULD BE UNDER THE BUILDING.

AND WE ARE PROPOSING APPROXIMATELY 100 PARKING SPACES, 16 SPACES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE COMMERCIAL USAGE AND, BASED ON THE PROPOSED UNITS 73 WOULD BE REQUIRED FOR THE CONDOMINIUM UNIT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.

WHEN ASSESSING A SPECIAL USE PERMIT SEVERAL FACTORS COME INTO PLAY AND THOSE ARE OUTLINED WITHIN THE REPORT THAT IS ATTACHED IN THE PACKET. THE CITY COUNCIL PACKET.

SPECIAL USE PERMIT IS DEFINED IN THE FORM-BASED CODES AT BILLY AS A DEVELOPMENT APPROVAL THAT PERMITS A USE THAT IS A LITTLE BIT INCONSISTENT WITH THE PROVISION OF THE INTENT TO THE CODE. IT HAS TO HAVE SOME COMPATIBILITY WITH IT TO THE S&P IS REQUIRED FOR MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS IN ALL SUBJECTS WHEN MULTIFAMILY ADJOINING UNITS ARE ALLOWED. ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS IS PRIMARILY INTENDED TO ENSURE THAT THOSE USES WILL NOT PRESENT A SIGNIFICANT ADVERSE IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING LAND USES GOOD INFRASTRUCTURE, TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS OR COMMUNITY AT LARGE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA.

THE SBC IS INTENDED TO CREATE A MIX OF NEIGHBORHOODS WITH MULTIFAMILY UNITS INTEGRATING WITH AND SUPPORTING COMMERCIAL OR RETAIL USES AND NOT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF STANDALONE MULTIFAMILY COMPLEXES. RELATE THE PREVIOUS SLIDE AND WHAT I WAS ALLUDING TO IS THE S&P ALLOWS THAT FURTHER ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE WHETHER THIS IS INDEED COMPLEMENTARY OF AND COHESIVELY PLANS WITH THE OVERALL FRAMEWORK REQUIREMENT.

THE APPROVAL CRITERIA AND THE MIXED-USE PERMIT IS FINDING THE DEVELOPMENT CODE. THE STAFF DOES RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE PROPOSED SMP ALLOWING FOR THE 52 CONDOMINIUM DWELLING UNITS FOR SALE IN THE MIXED-USE BUILDING AS REFLECTED IN THE S&P COMPONENT AND THE FRAMEWORK PLAN.

THE MIXED-USE BUILDING WILL PROVIDE A UNIQUE ASSESSMENT OF THE MIXED-USE OPENING AND PROVIDED RESIDENTIAL OPTION WITHIN THE OVERALL BAYSIDE DISTRICT AND IT ALSO REALIZES IN THE THE INTENT OF THE FORM-BASED CODE TO CREATE THAT PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED NEIGHBORHOOD WITH APPROPRIATE AND INTEGRATED RETAIL COMPONENT.

THE MIXED-USE BUILDING IS AN ELEMENT TOWARDS A MORE HOLISTIC URBANISM SOME OF THE DAILY NEEDS OF THE RESIDENTS TO BE SERVICED OR RIGHT THERE AND THEN SUCH AS THE RESTAURANTS AND BOUTIQUES AND RETAIL WOULD ALL BE AVAILABLE WITHIN WALKING PDISTANCE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE AGAIN, ANOTHER COMPONENT OF THIS REQUEST IS A CHANGE IN ZONING OF APPROXIMATELY 2.1 ACRE PROPERTY ALONG THE SHOREFRONT AND IT IS CURRENTLY ZONED A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THAT THE REZONED TO THE FORM-BASED CODE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT AND THIS PROPERTY IS ALONG THE SHORELINE AND IT IS ENVISIONED THAT THESE PARCELS WOULD HAVE RESTAURANT IN RETAIL USES AND THESE SPECIFIC COMPONENTS WOULD HAVE VALUE TO THE PROJECT THE OVERALL PROJECT AND OF COURSE THE BAYSIDE DISTRICT ITSELF BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE LOCATION TO OFFER THOSE OUTDOOR AMENITIES AND ATTRACTIONS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. THE OVERALL REQUEST CONSOLIDATED INTO A SINGLE AMENDED FRAMEWORK PLAN WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE MIX OF NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE BAYSIDE DISTRICT AND AS YOU KNOW THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER COMMERCIAL OR RETAIL USES THAT ARE STANDALONE BUT IN THIS CASE THIS WOULD ENABLE THAT NEIGHBORHOOD TO BE MINIATURIZED.

LOCATION ON LAKE RAY HUBBARD IS PROXIMITY TO I 30, THE TURNPIKE AND ONGOING DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA CONTRARY TO THIS DEVELOPMENT WHICH IS CALLED SUNSET LANDING AN ATTRACTIVE PART OF ROWLETT'S FUTURE. THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES, CONDOMINIUM HOMES AND A MULTI STORY BUILDING OF OWNER OCCUPANCY WILL EXPAND HOUSING CHOICES AND NEIGHBORHOOD ORIENTED RETAIL LOCATED WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE RESIDENCE AND THE ABIDING PLAN.

I HOPE I DIDN'T GO TOO QUICKLY BUT I WANTED TO CAPTURE THE INTENT OF THE OVERALL REQUEST TO COUNSEL AND THE NOTICES PER THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE AND THE RDC WAS SET WITHIN THE 200 FOOT REQUIRED RADIUS OF THE SUBJECT SITE AND 500 FOOT AREA.

[03:20:01]

19 NOTICES WERE MAILED AND THE 200 FOOT RADIUS AND WITHIN 50 OF THE 500 FOOT RADIUS. IN TERMS OF RESPONSES WE RECEIVE TO IN OPPOSITION WITHIN THE 200 FOOT NOTICE AREA AND3 IN OPPOSITION OF THE 500 FOOT . THIS ITEM WAS HEARD AT THE FEBRUARY 9 PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSIONING MEETING AND THEY RECOMMENDED THE FOLLOWING. NUMBER 1, THEY RECOMMENDED 6212 REZONED THE TWO.03 ACRES FROM FULL BASE NEW NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT TWO FORM-BASED URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT.

THEY ALSO RECOMMENDED A SPECIAL USE PERMIT FOR 52 MULTI FAMILY DWELLINGS WITHIN A MIXED-USE APPROXIMATE 1.6 ACRES THAT IS IN A FORMS BASED NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT WITH A 5 TO 2 VOTE.

AND, AN AMENDMENT TO THE FRAMEWORK PLAN FOR APPROXIMATELY 133 TOWNHOMES, 58 SINGLE-FAMILY CASITAS AND MIXED-USE BUILDINGS AND ASSOCIATED VARIATIONS.

WITH A RECOMMENDATION TO AMEND THE CONCEITED DWELLING SITE FOR HATE MINIMUM MAX 14 FEET TO A RANGE OF 850 TO 2000 SQUARE FEET WITH A 4 TO 3 VOTE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL RECOMMENDING APPROVAL OF A REZONING OF THE THREE PARCELS ALONG THE LAKESHORE FROM FORM-BASED NEW NEIGHBORHOOD TO URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT. APPROVAL OF THE SU P MIXED-USE RESIDENTIAL BUILDING ALLOWING FOR 52 MULTI FAMILY DWELLING UNITS WITH ROUND FLOOR RETAIL. APPROVAL OF THE AMENDED REMARK PLAN TO ALLOW FOR SINGLE-FAMILY USES AND MIXED USE BUILDINGS AS WELL AS THE ASSOCIATED VARIATIONS WITH THE EXCEPTION, MAXIMUM SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE CASITAS PROJECT TO BE NO MORE THAN 2000 FEET RATHER THAN THE REQUESTED 2400 SQUARE FEET.

THE HOMES THAT ABOUT THE PEDESTRIAN CORRIDORS SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE PRIVACY TO THE RESIDENCE AND VISUAL INTEREST TO THE USERS OF THOSE CORRIDORS.

ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING FOR RESIDENTIAL PRIVACY AND PEDESTRIAN ENHANCEMENT. WITH THAT, COUNSEL CONCLUDED MY PRESENTATION AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU. BEFORE I ASK FOR QUESTIONS FOR YOU, IS THERE AN APPLICANT PRESENTATION TODAY?

>> SPEAKER: YES. THE APPLICANT IS PRESIDENT AND HAS A TEAM HERE AND THE PROPERTY OWNER IS HERE AS WELL

AND THEY HAVE A PRESENTATION. >> MAYOR: OKAY.

IT IS GETTING LATE. NEITHER HERE NOR THERE.

EVERYONE HAS THEIR TIME BUT ALL I ASK IS WE DO THE PRESENTATION IS WE DN'T REPEAT INFORMATION THAT SHE HAS ALREADY SHARED BECAUSE WE WENT INTO A LOT OF DETAIL AND WAS VERY GOOD PDETAIL. IF YOU COULD APPLICANT AND LAND OWNER PLEASE DON'T GO INTO A LOT OF DETAIL.

COUNSEL. QUESTIONS FOR STAFF BEFORE WE

MOVED TO PRESENTATIONS? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I HAVE A

COUPLE QUESTIONS. >> MAYOR: I BELIEVE WE SAID THIS. I WANT TO MAKE IT VERY CLEAR IN MY MIND AND TO THE PUBLIC. EVERYTHING IN THIS DEVELOPMENT

IS OWNER OCCUPIED. >> SPEAKER: RIGHT.

>> MAYOR: NOTHING RENTAL? >> SPEAKER: BASED ON EVERYTHING PROVIDED BY THE APPLICANT ABSOLUTELY.

WILL THE APPLICANT PRESENT I WANT THAT CLEARLY DISCLOSED.

THE CONDOS WITH THE RETAIL CHEMISTRY FACING SUNSET SAYS 4 TO 6000 FEET OF RETAIL FACING SUNSET.

HOW MUCH OF THE BOTTOM FLOOR IS THAT MAC I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH 4 TO 6000 FEET IS COMPARED TO THE ENTIRE BOTTOM FLOOR OF THE BUILDING AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW THAT I WANT THE APPLICANT TO TELL ME THAT.

IF YOU THINK THE APPLICANT IS PREPARED FOR THAT QUESTION.

>> MAYOR: THIS IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE APPLICANT, TOO.

I'M FRUSTRATED FOR A REQUEST TO REDUCE OPEN SPACE THAT WENT FROM 14 TO 10 AND NOW TWO NINE? AND THEN AN EDITORIAL COMMENT

[03:25:06]

OR A QUESTION FOR YOU. I DON'T UNDERSTAND CASITAS GOING THROUGH TO 2000 FEET. I CERTAINLY DON'T UNDERSTAND 2400 FEET. WHAT IS IT CASITAS? IT'S A SMALL HOME. 2400 SQUARE FEET IS NOT A SMALL HOME IN 2000 SQUARE FEET IS NOT A SMALL HOME.

WHY DO THEY CALL IT A CASITAS? >> SPEAKER: WE HAVE A REQUEST FOR LARGER DWELLING SIZES AND WE HAVE INDICATED TO THE APPLICANT THAT THERE ARE OTHER RESIDENTIAL PRODUCTS THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO GO LARGER WITHIN DWELLING UNIT SIZE AND WE HAVE SEEN CONSISTENTLY BUT THIS IS AN ISSUE AND I DIGRESS.

I ABSOLUTELY AGREE THAT WE UNDERSTOOD THEIR BUSINESS MODEL BUT DIDN'T COMPLETELY AGREE TO INCREASING IT TO THAT SIZE AND THAT DWELLING UNIT WOULD ACCOMMODATE THAT AND THAT'S HOW

WE ASSESSED IT. >> MAYOR: BUT WHY ARE WE CALLING IT A CASITAS? IS IT BECAUSE IT ALLOWS A DIFFERENT SETBACK? B3 OVERALL THE DEVELOPMENT CRITERIA WHEN YOU FIT IT ALL TOGETHER THEY WERE SOME

VARIATIONS. >> I DON'T THINK A 2000 SQUARE-FOOT OR A 2400 SQUARE-FOOT OWNER OCCUPIED HOME IS A CASITAS. COUNCIL MEMBER MATT GRUBISICH?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: THIS MIGHT BE FOR THE DEVELOPER.

ARE THEY GOING TO GO INTO WHAT THEIR PLAN IS FOR THE ROUGHLY 4 ACRE PIECE THAT IS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF SUNSET BOULEVARD AND

WHAT THEIR PLAN IS FOR IT? >> SPEAKER: I BELIEVE SO.

THE PRESENTATION DOES ADDRESS THAT AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO

ADDRESS THAT, TOO. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WANTED TO GO TO THE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD.

EMIND ME QUICKLY WHAT IS THE MAX RESIDENTIAL THAT YOU CAN GO

TO IN AN URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD? >> SPEAKER: COUNCIL MEMBER I DON'T HAVE THE ANSWER AT MY FINGERTIPS AND I'M GOING TO GO TO MY TEAM AND THEY ARE SAYING A I'M GOING TO CALL ON CARLOS

TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR ME. >> THAT'S OKAY.

WE CAN LOOK IT UP, TOO AND I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WHAT THEY ARE PROPOSING IS, I DON'T THINK RESIDENTIAL OR LARGE STORIES ARE SUITABLE FOR THE SOUTH SIDE OF THAT ROAD.

SO, I BETTER SEE A REALLY GOOD PLAN AND THERE MIGHT BE SOME LIMITATIONS THAT WE WOULD NEED TO PUT ONTO THAT TO APPROVE THAT ZONING CHANGE. ROUGHLY THEY ADDRESS THAT IN

THE PRESENTATION. >> MAYOR: CARLOS, I JUST SAW CARLOS. DID YOU HAVE IN ANSWER?

>> SPEAKER: WITH THIS LIMITED PERCENT WE CAN PROBABLY WAIT FOR THE PRESENTATION AND IF THEY DON'T ADDRESS IT THEN WE CAN RESPOND TO IT. WE WENT OKAY.

WE WILL KEEP THAT IN MIND. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE WE HEAR THE OTHER PRESENTATIONS? ALL RIGHT.

THAT WAS ALL THE QUESTIONS FOR NOW IF YOU WANT TO PROCEED.

>> SPEAKER: LAURA, COULD YOU BRING UP THE PRESENTATION? I ASSUME THAT EVERYONE CAN HEAR ME OKAY?

>> SPEAKER: CAN YOU STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE

RECORD? >> MY NAME IS CONNIE COOPER AND MY ADDRESS IS MCKINNEY AVENUE, DALLAS TEXAS, SEVEN MAY 2, 2004. GOOD EVENING.

MOST GOOD MORNING MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

I THINK EVERYONE WILL BE PLEASED TO HEAR THAT I PLAN TO HAVE A BRIEF PRESENTATION. WE APPRECIATE THE VERY DETAILED AND EXCELLENT PRESENTATION OF THE DEVELOPMENT ELEMENTS.

ON BEHALF OF CENTURION AND OUR ENTIRE DESIGN TEAM WE HAVE APPRECIATED THE SUPPORT WE HAVE RECEIVED PARTICULARLY CARLOS AND ALEX IN WALKING THROUGH THIS PROCESS WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH THEM THROUGH THE LAST SIX MONTHS AND I THINK WITH THEIR GUIDANCE, THE PROJECT HAS GOTTEN EVEN BETTER.

LASTLY, WE APPRECIATE THE PLANNING COMMISSION SUPPORT OF OUR DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL. JUST AS A LITTLE BACKGROUND PIT SUNSET LANDING IS BEING DEVELOPED BY CENTURION

[03:30:07]

AMERICAN.T IS THE LARGEST RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT COMPANY IN TEXAS. IT'S 30 YEAR TRACK RECORD OF DEVELOPMENT IS SOMETHING THAT THEY BRING TO SUNSET LANDING AS THEY HAVE DONE WITH MANY DEVELOPMENTS THROUGHOUT THE METROPOLITAN AREA. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE ELEMENT THAT REALLY INFORMED OUR DESIGN RVS FIVE.

AND DELIVER A DEVELOP AN EXTENSIVE NEIGHBORHOOD OF SIDEWALKS AND INTERCONNECTED ED STREETS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. I BELIEVE WE'VE GONE OVER IN IN DETAIL I'M GOING TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS THAT THE COUNCIL HAS RAISED. THE CENTRALIZED OPEN SPACE IS CRITICAL TO THIS. OFTEN TIMES THERE IS AS WE HAVE INDICATED, AND APPLICANT CAN GO TO 10 PERCENT WITH A MINOR WARRANT WITH SUPPORT OF STAFF. WE ARE AT NINE PERCENT.

THE KEY PART IS IT IS CENTRALIZED.

THIS IS SOME THING THAT CAN BE ENJOYED BY THE FULL NEIGHBORHOOD. SOMETIMES DEVELOPMENTS WILL SEE THAT THEY MAY GIVE YOU 10 TO 14 PERCENT BUT IT IS IN SLIVERS AND SMALL PIECES. WE SEE THIS AS A LARGE COMMUNITY GATHERING PLACE. IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE DEVELOP AND IMMEDIATELY TO THE WEST, THESE ARE HOMES.

THERE'S NOT ANY CENTRALIZED OR OPEN SPACE.

THEY ARE SHARING THE OPEN GREEN FURTHER TO THE WEST.

WE HAVE PROVIDED NOT ONLY A CENTRALIZED SCREEN BUT IF YOU SEE THE CORE DOORS ARE CONNECTING THE NEIGHBORHOOD THROUGHOUT. SOME WOULD SAY THOSE ARE LOST LOTS OF OPPORTUNITIES. WE SEE THEM AS A CRITICAL PIECE OF THE DEVELOPMENT. THE IDEA TO MAKE THIS A COMMUNITY IS BUILT AROUND THE CENTRAL GREEN.

AS WE MENTIONED THE PREVIOUS FRAMEWORK PLAN ON THIS SITE HAD LESS OF A COMMON GREEN BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY THIS DEVELOPMENT THAT IS ON THE PROPERTY, CURRENTLY WAS PLANNED AS A RENTAL SINGLE-FAMILY DEVELOPMENT.

ON ONE LOT SERVED BY FIRE LANES THAT WERE GATED.

THROUGH THE PROCESS OF WORKING WITH THE STAFF WE PRESENTED TO YOU IN EXCELLENT COMMUNITY NEIGHBORHOOD.

ONE OF THE IMPORTANT PARTS, THE COUNCIL MEMBER TALK ABOUT A FOUR ACRE SOUTH OF US ACROSS SUNSET BOULEVARD IS ACTUALLY A PUBLIC PARK OF OPEN SPACE. I'M NOT SURE IF THAT WAS THE FOUR ACRES THAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER WAS REFERRING TO.

TO THE WEST SHOWN ON THIS MAP IS A NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT FACILITY THAT IS BEING PROPOSED AND I WILL GO INTO MORE DETAIL ON THAT. THIS GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE CASITAS THAT WERE PROPOSED WITH 35 FOOT LOT AND 80 FOOT DEPTHS AND WE ONLY HAVE AS FAR AS BUILDING TYPES THE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD ONLY HAS FOUR BUILDING TYPES OF RESIDENTIAL NATURE.HREE OF THOSE IS REALLY ORIENTED TO OWNER OCCUPANCY. HOWEVER, THE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE CORNER, SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE DEVELOPMENT WILL BE OWNER OCCUPIED.

IT IS REQUIRED TO BE OWNER OCCUPIED THE REMAINDER OF THE SITE WILL BE OWNER-OCCUPIED. IT IS NOT A RENTAL DEVELOPMENT AS THE CURRENT FRAMEWORK PLAN IS PROPOSED TO YOU.

THE CASITAS, YES. IT IS AN ODD NAME.

WITH THE CASITAS SQUARE FOOTAGE RANGES BY CODE, BY FORM-BASED CODES ID 800 TO 1400 SQUARE FEET.

WHAT I SHARED WITH THE STAFF, UNFORTUNATELY THE LOT SIZE THAT WAS GIVEN TO YOU IS A 40 FOOT WIDE PRODUCT WITHIN 800 SQUARE-FOOT HOUSE OR 1400 SQUARE-FOOT HOUSE.

THE LOT SIZES AND HOUSE SIZES AREN'T NECESSARILY COMMISERATE.

THIS IS YOUR CODE AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT.

WHAT WE PROPOSE IS A 35 FOOT PRODUCT WITH AN 83 FOOT LOT

[03:35:06]

THAT WILL ALLOW 2 TO 4 PARKING SPACES ON EACH OF THE LOT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. THE TOWNHOME IS ON A 22 FOOT LOT AND A NINE FOOT DEPTH IS VERY MUCH LIKE THE TOWNHOMES THAT ARE BEING DEVELOPED NEXT STORE.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT IS PROVIDING ELEVATED FOUNDATIONS WITH MANY OF THEM CONTRIBUTED TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND ESSENTIALLY INWARD THINKING AS FAR AS SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA. WE'VE COVERED THE DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL AND ONE OF THE KEY PARTS TO THIS IS EACH OF THE CONDOMINIUM UNITS WILL HAVE OUTDOOR SPACE.ACH ONE WILL HAVE BALCONIES. MOST OF THEM WILL OVERLOOK RAY HUBBARD AND MOST OF THEM THAT DON'T WILL OVERLOOK THE POOL THAT WILL BE IN THE INTERIOR OF THE DEVELOPMENT TO THE BACK.

ONE OF THE COUNCILMEMBERS TALKED ABOUT WHAT PORTION OF THE FRONT THAT FACES THE UPPER ELEVATION, THE IMAGE TO THE TOP IS THE PORTION THAT FACES SUNSET BOULEVARD.

THE END, THE DETAILS RIGHT NOW, WE ARE THINKING ABOUT 60 PERCENT TO 70 PERCENT OF THE FAC'ADE GROUND FLOOR FAC'ADE WI BE RETAIL SPACE. I HOPE THAT ANSWERS THE QUESTION THAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER HAD.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. THIS IS THE PLAN, AN IMAGE OF WHAT THE RESTAURANT AREA, LARGE IN SIZE.

AS WE MENTIONED THIS IS APPROVED FOR PROPOSED FOR NINE TO 15,000 SQUARE FEET. ONE OF THE MEETING SAID THIS WILL BLOCK OUR VIEWS. THIS WILL BE ONE STORY ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF THE SITE AT BEST WILL BE COVERED BY BUILDINGS.

THIS WILL BE COMMUNITY ORIENTED NEIGHBORHOOD ORIENTED TYPES OF RESTAURANT AND IT BLENDS WITH THE IDEA OF THIS BEING AN URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD AREA AND OF SERVICE TO THE FUTURE RESIDENTS OF COMMUNITIES. IT HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A BOAT DOCK ACCESS TO THE AREA AND OPEN SPACE THAT CAN BE ENJOYED. ONE OF THE THINGS, THIS IS CURRENTLY THREE LOTS THAT IF IT WERE RESIDENTIAL LOT THEY WOULD BE PRIVATE LOTS AND WOULD NOT BE ENJOYED AND OFTEN TIMES WOULD NOT HAVE VIEWS FOR THE PUBLIC.

THE AMENITIES THAT ARE PROPOSED HERE ARE MUCH MORE NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDLY FOR OUR VIEWPOINT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE? THIS IS AN ILLUSTRATION ON HOW WE MIGHT PROGRAM THE LARGE COMMUNITY GREEN WITH PLAY AREAS, OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD EVENTS TO TAKE PLACE AND OVERALL ENJOYMENT.

A NUMBER OF THE HOMES WILL FRONT OF US.

AS I BELIEVE, WE TOOK THE SPACE THAT SOMETIMES IS IN PRIVATE OPEN SPACE AND BEGAN TO MAKE IT PUBLIC.

IT IS MUCH MORE OF A COMMUNITY ASSET.

NEXT SLIDE, LAURA, ONE OF THE KEY PARTS ARE THE PEDESTRIAN CORE DOORS, HE SEE THE BLUE WITH SIDEWALK AREA THE FIVE FOOT SIDEWALKS, THE MORE PEACH COLOR ALONE SUNSET BOULEVARD IS A 10 FOOT SIDEWALK AND A 12 FOOT TRAIL.

HE SEE THE ARROWS ON THE COMMUNITY GREEN COMING INTO THE COMMUNITY GREEN. WITH THE PEDESTRIAN ORIENTATION AND A LOT OF THE STREET NETWORK THIS IS MADE TO FACILITATE CONNECTIVITY AND MOBILITY WHETHER YOU ARE IN A VEHICLE OR ON FOOT. IT IS A STRONG ASSET OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE, LAURA.

AS WE HAVE COVERED, OR THREE ITEMS BEFORE YOU TONIGHT.

I THINK ALL OF THEM, NOT THINK BUT ALL OF THEM HAD STAFF SUPPORT STEPPED FOR THE ISSUE OF THE CASITAS SIDE AND IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK MORE THOROUGHLY ON THE ISSUE. IN THE PAST FOUR YEARS THE CITY HAS APPROVED FOR FORM-BASED NEIGHBORHOODS.

[03:40:06]

BAYSIDE, CANTERBURY ROAD, NORTH HAVEN AND THESE HAVE BEEN APPROVED WITH CASITAS HOME SIZES OF UP TO 2500 SQUARE FEET. WE FEEL STRONGLY THAT LIMITING HOUSE SIZES TO LESS THAN 2400 SQUARE FEET WILL REDUCE INTERESTED HOMEBUILDERS IN THESE LOTS AND INTERESTED FAMILIES TO PURCHASE THE HOMES AND IN FACT, JUST DOWN THE STREET THE CASITAS AND ALL THE CASITAS ON BAYSIDE NORTH ARE PERMITTED TO GO UPWARDS OF 2500 SQUARE FEET.

NOT ALL OF THEM ARE. THERE IS A MIX AND IT'S ONLY BEEN RECENT THAT WE FULLY UNDERSTOOD THAT STAFF WOULD BE RECOMMENDING A LIMITATION TO THE CASITAS OF 2000 SQUARE FEET. WHEN THAT CAME UP, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE OFFERED, THE OWNER OF CENTURION AMERICAN IS THAT WE COULD LIMIT 50 PERCENT OF THE CASITAS WOULD NOT EXCEED 2100 SQUARE FEET. AND, NO MORE THAN THE REMAINDER OF EXCEEDING 2400 SQUARE FEET. THAT IS WHAT WE CERTAINLY WOULD ASK FOR CONSIDERATION. HOWEVER, I THINK WHAT IS CONCERNING, ONE OF THE LAST THINGS, HE IS NOT AVAILABLE TONIGHT BUT WHAT HE SAID TO ME WAS THAT THE PROJECT IS NOT VIABLE IF THE LIMITATION IS 2000 SQUARE-FOOT CASITAS.

THAT IS 58, ALMOST A THIRD OF THE PRODUCT THAT IS BEING PROPOSED. IF IT IS A COUNSEL CONSENSUS THAT THEY WOULD LIMIT THIS DEVELOPMENT TO 2000 SQUARE-FOOT CASITAS THEN THE OWNER, THE PURCHASER OF THE PROPERTY WOULD ASK THAT THIS BE TABLED UNTIL WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT BECAUSE IT IS NOT A VIABLE DEVELOPMENT WITH THAT LIMITATION GOING FORWARD. I ALSO NOTE, MAYOR, YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE OPEN SPACE LIMITATIONS.

WE HAVE DONE A GREAT DEAL TO PRESERVE A LARGE AREA OF THIS SITE FOR OPEN SPACE. NOT ONLY DOES IT HAVE ONEANDAHALF ACRES FOR PUBLIC SHARING OF OPEN SPACE, FOOTSTEPS FROM THE HOMES ACROSS SUNSET BOULEVARD THERE IS A LARGE I THINK IT IS A 3 TO 4 ACRE OPEN SPACE.

WE FEEL THERE IS A STRONG SENSE OF OPEN SPACE AVAILABLE TO THE FUTURE RESIDENTS OF THE AREA. AGAIN, LIMITING THAT ARE INCREASING THAT AGAIN WOULD, WE HAVE DONE A LOT OF HOMEWORK.

I THINK ALEX AND CARLOS CAN ATTEST TO THIS.

THIS HAS BEEN DESIGNED WITH A LOT OF THOUGHT AND A LOT OF EFFORT TO RESPOND TO ALL OF THE REQUESTS COMING FORWARD TO STAFF. WE WOULD ASK, I GUESS, IF THE OPEN SPACE WERE TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE OR THE HOMES WERE TO BE LIMITED TO 2000 SQUARE FEET WE WOULD ASK THE REQUEST TO BE TABLED UNTIL WE CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT THE NEXT STEPS WOULD BE. I SAY ALL OF THAT BECAUSE I KNOW WE ARE LIMITED UNLESS YOU ASKED ME QUESTIONS THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THAT I CAN SAY AFTER I CLOSE.

THAT IS OUR PRESENTATION. THAT IS THE INFORMATION THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU AND WE WOULD CERTAINLY LOVE TO HEAR YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE PRESENTED OR WHAT WE

HAVE SHARED WITH YOU ALSO. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH CONNIE. DO WE HAVE ANOTHER PRESENTATION OR WAS THAT THE PERSON THAT COULDN'T MAKE IT? I THOUGHT THAT WHAT YOU HAD SAID.

COUNSEL. QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT?

COUNCILMAN MATT GRUBISICH? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I WILL BE QUICK. I'M CONCERNED.

YOU'RE RECOMMENDING 100 PARKING SPACES FOR THE RETAIL, MULTIFAMILY PEACE I'M LOOKING AT RESERVING SOME OF THOSE WITH THE RESIDENCE AND RESERVING THEM WITH THE PEOPLE WOULD BE

[03:45:01]

VISITING THOSE STORES. CAN YOU WALK ME THROUGH THE PLAN? I'M THINKING IT'S NOT ENOUGH

PARKING FOR THE 52 UNITS. >> SPEAKER: I BELIEVE THE STAFF HAS DONE SOME CALCULATIONS AND WE ARE REALLY, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WOULD SAY OVER PARTS BUT BASED ON THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS WE MORE THAN THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS FOR THE 52 UNITS AND HAVE SUFFICIENT PARKING FOR ADDITIONAL RETAIL USERS. THERE IS ALSO PARALLEL PARKING THROUGHOUT SUNSET BOULEVARD? THE FEEDBACK THAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE STAFF CONCERNING THE PLANNED PARKING FOR THE CONDOMINIUMS IS MORE THAN ADEQUATE.

THOSE HUNDRED PLACES WOULD BE RESERVED FOR THE RESIDENTS? AND THEN ANYBODY VISITING THE SHOPS WOULD HAVE TO PARK ON THE STREETS? WE FEEL THAT THERE WOULD BE AVAILABLE PARKING INSIDE THEIR, TOO.

THERE WOULD BE ROOM AVAILABLE TO ACCOMMODATE THE RETAILS 4 TO 6000 FEET IS REALLY SMALL RETAIL.

AND NEIGHBORHOOD ORIENTED. WE ANTICIPATE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WALKING TO THIS BUT NOT ALL. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I SEE THAT NOW IT LOOKS RIGHT.ECOND QUESTION IS I'M SURE YOU'RE GOING TO PHASE US IN. WHAT IS YOUR PHASED PLAN? ARE YOU PLANNING ON DOING EVERYTHING IT WANTS?

>> SPEAKER: WE WOULD HOPE TO DO ALL OF IT AS ONE PHASE.

MORE THAN LIKELY THE LARGE CONDOMINIUM BUILDING WOULD POSSIBLY BE OR REQUIRE A SECOND PHASE TO THE DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE IT IS SUBSTANTIALLY LARGE DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD TAKE PLACE. WE DON'T ANTICIPATE ANY MORE THAN TWO PHASES. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CENTURION AMERICAN BELIEVES IS TRYING TO DO AS MUCH AS

POSSIBLE IN ONE PHASE. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: IS THAT THE COMMERCIAL PEACE THAT IS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE ROAD?

>> SPEAKER: THE AREA IN THE BASE? THAT IS ANTICIPATED THAT IT WOULD BE DONE SIMULTANEOUS TO THE REMAINING DEVELOPMENT. YES.

TO THE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THANK YOU.

>> SPEAKER: WE ARE ANXIOUS TO DO THAT.ANTICIPATE THAT BEING

SOME OF THE FIRST THINGS. >> MAYOR: THIS IS THE MAYOR.

IN REGARDS TO THE SPECIFIC PIECE OF PROPERTY, IF YOU CAN FIND THAT SLIDE AGAIN, THE ONE THAT SHOW THE DETAIL A LITTLE BIT BY THE APPLICANT, WHILE SHE IS PULLING THAT UP, THE DOCK CONCERNS ME, NEED A DOCK SO PEOPLE CAN DOCK AND PULL UP TO THE RESTAURANTS. WE NEED TO SPACE WHERE THEY CAN KEEP THEIR BOAT. I DON'T SEE A LOT OF SPOTS WHERE THOSE BOAT WOULD STAY WHERE PEOPLE ARE VISITING THE RESTAURANT. I THINK AS WE GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS THE THINGS THAT THE CITY WANTS TO SEE HERE, PARTICULARLY LIKE IF IT'S DECIDED THERE'S PLACES TO DOCK AND OBVIOUSLY IT WOULD BE SOMETHING WE'D WANT TO SEE

ADDED ALSO. >> MAYOR: I WILL GO TO MENTAL FOR THAT. HOW DO WE ENFORCE THAT? HAVING A STREET DOCK IS NOT GOING TO WORK THERE.

>> SPEAKER: IT IS ILLUSTRATIVE. HE INTENT OF THE FRAMEWORK PLAN IS TO PROVIDE CERTAIN SPECIFICITY.

THESE ELEMENTS WOULD HAVE TO COME IN FOR APPROVAL IF IT IS A PHASE COMPONENT OR REDEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT WOULD MORE ELOQUENTLY ADDRESS THE CONFIGURATION AND LOCATION OF THE BOAT DOCK AND IT REQUIRES DISCUSSIONS WITH DW YOU IN THE CITY OF DALLAS AS WELL. THIS IS MORE OF A CONCEPTUAL UTILIZATION OF THAT AREA TO SHOW WHAT THEY ENVISION HAPPENING. IN ORDER TO REALIZE THAT THEY NEED MORE SPECIFICITY WITH THEIR PLAN.

>> MAYOR: EXPLAINED TO ME ALL THE ELEMENTS OF THIS AND HOW

[03:50:02]

BIG THESE RESTAURANTS, I DON'T ILLUSTRATIVE OF DRIVING.

>> SPEAKER: THE BROWN SQUARES ARE THE BUILDING SITES AND AGAIN THESE ARE ILLUSTRATIVE BUT THE PLAN IS RESTAURANTS AND THOSE ARE PROBABLY 4 TO 5000 SQUARE-FOOT BUILDING PADS IN THE POOL IN THE MIDDLE WOULD BE, WHETHER IT IS A WILL OR A WATER FEATURE, AGAIN, AS WE SAID THERE IS A LOT OF WORK THAT WE WILL NEED TO GO THROUGH AS FAR AS GETTING A NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT WORKS WITH EVERYTHING. THE IDEA THAT YOU SEE THOSE DOCS AND THEN YOU SEE THE YELLOW WITH THE RECTANGLES.

THE IDEA IS THAT PEOPLE COULD SIT THERE AND ENJOY THE VIEWS OF LAKE RAY HUBBARD AND AS PART OF THE WHOLE OUTDOOR AMENITY AREA, I BELIEVE THAT IT IS, IS SORT OF LOOKS LIKE PIANO KEYS, THAT IS OUTDOOR LIVING. THE PATIO.

>> MAYOR: I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE POOL IN THE BODY OF WATER.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THIS IS A REZONING AND THIS WOULD REQUIRE A LOT MORE WORK? OKAY, THANKS.

SO, I LIKE YOUR COMMENTS IN REGARDS TO THE APPLICANT! THAT THE OTHER COULD SEE THAT LOT IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD ARE 2500 SQUARE FEET.

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL ABOUT THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST OF 50 PERCENT, 2100 OR LESS AND THE OTHER 50 PERCENT BETWEEN 2120

400? >> SPEAKER: I APOLOGIZE.

>> MAYOR: YOU GET TO START AGAIN.

>> SPEAKER: CARLOS AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT THE 50-50 SPLIT.

IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THAT WE WOULD PREFER TO MAYBE WORK WITH 2100 AND HAVE THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD NOT HAVE THAT SPLIT ALL. I KNOW CONNIE MENTIONED IN THE PRESENTATION THAT WE LOOK AT OTHER DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN THE CITY AND THEY HAD HAD A SPECIAL PRIVILEGE AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS COMPONENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT IS NOT CONGRUENT OR IDENTICAL TO THE SURROUNDING DEPARTMENT AND TO HAVE A SMALLER DWELLING IN THE AREA. DEFINITELY WOULD BE OUR RECOMMENDATION THAT THE WHOLE PRODUCT BE 2100 AND NOT A 50-50

SPLIT. >> MAYOR: COUNSEL? QUESTIONS BEFORE I OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: HELPED ME UNDERSTAND.

WHY IS 2400 BAD? >> SPEAKER: IT'S NOT BAD BUT THE WAY THAT THE FORM-BASED CODE IS INTENDED TO WORK IS YOU HAVE SPECIFIC BUILDING TYPES. YOU HAVE, FOR INSTANCE, YOUR CASITAS WHICH MEANS THEY FRONT IN ALLEY.

IT IS THOUGH THEIR SPECIFIC LOT DIMENSIONS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM IN THE INTENT TO HAVE THAT DIVERSE SIZE IN THE PRODUCT IS TO ATTRACT ALL SORTS OF, A MYRIAD OF CONSUMERS BEFORE THAT PRODUCT. SO, YOU HAVE DIFFERENT LEVELS ALL SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO EXPLAIN IT THAT ALLOW LARGER HOMES AND SMALLER HOMES.

THE URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT ACCOMMODATES THE CASITAS WITH THE SPECIFIC PARAMETERS. EACH HOME HAS IT'S OWN SPECIFIC PARAMETER AND THAT IS THE INTENT OF IT TO BRING IN THAT

VERY DIVERSE STOCK. >> MAYOR: IF YOU LOOK AT HOMES TODAY YOU UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE HOUSING TO MAKE THAT NEIGHBORHOOD SO WELCOMING AND ATTRACT TO HOMEOWNERS. I DO THINK THAT HAVING OWNER-OCCUPIED CONDOS WITH OWNER-OCUPIED TOWNHOMES WITH OWNER-OCCUPIED CASITAS EVEN THOUGH I DON'T THINK THEY ARE

[03:55:03]

CASITAS DOES OFFER THAT VARIETY AND I CERTAINLY WOULD SUPPORT MORE, 50 PERCENT 2100 OR LESS AND 50 PERCENT 21 TO 24 BEFORE I WOULD SUPPORT 100 PERCENT OF 2400 BUT THAT IS WHAT I THINK.

YOU HAVE A FOLLOW-UP QUESTION? I THINK IT'S THE DIVERSITY OF

THE HOUSING. >> MAYOR: WE ARE MAKING THE HOUSING SMALLER WE ARE ELIMINATING A COUPLE OF ROOMS AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE REASONING BEHIND IT.

IT'S LIKE THE APPLICANT SAID. IF THEY HAVE TO BE HELD AT 2000 OR LESS THEY DON'T HAVE A PRODUCT THAT THEY CAN ATTRACT

BUILDERS. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THAT'S WHAT I HEARD HER SAY WITHOUT SAYING IT IS THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK AND REDESIGN A HOME TO FIT THAT IN 2100 THEY MIGHT ELIMINATE A ROOM OR TO AND CREATE THAT BUT OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE I OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING?

>> MAYOR: ALL RIGHT, LAURA, LET'S DO IT AGAIN.

AT THIS TIME I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

>> SPEAKER: MAYOR, THERE ARE NO COLLARS AND WE HAVE NOT

RECEIVED ANY COMMENTS ONLINE. >> MAYOR: AT THIS TIME I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE I REQUEST A MOTION? THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT ãWE HAVE THREE MOTIONS.

I MEAN, WE COULD DO IT ALL IN ONE BUT I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE VOTE IT IS GOING TO BE. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS BEFORE I ENTERTAIN A MOTION? I'M GOING TO START CALLING ON PEOPLE IF SOMEONE DOESN'T ENTERTAIN A MOTION.

YOU CAN'T SIT IN THE BACK OF THE CLASSROOM.

SORRY. I'M GETTING A BIT SLAPHAPPY.

I CAN GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE FIRST MOVE.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I MOVE TO REQUEST A REZONING OF THREE PARCELS OF APPROXIMATELY 2.083 ACRES FROM FORM-BASED NEW NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT TO FORM-BASED URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD

DISTRICTS. >> MAYOR: OKAY.

WE HAVE THAT MOTION ON THE TABLE.

DO I HAVE A SECOND? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: SECOND.

>> MAYOR: I'M GOING TO SAY COUNCILMAN TRENT EIGHT SECONDED THAT. ANY DISCUSSION BEFORE THE VOTE? AT THIS TIME I WILL CALL THE BOAT.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND.

7 ã0. NOW I AM GOING TO CALL ON, DO YOU WANT TO DO THE NEXT ONE? NO OR YES? WHO WANTS TO MAKE A MOTION? COUNCILMAN MARGOLIS?

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I MAKE A MOTION O APPROVE A SPECIAL USE PERMIT FOR MULTIFAMILY DWELLINGS ON APPROXIMATELY 1.6 ACRES ON PROPERTIES OWNED URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD AND THAT IS MY

MOTION. >> MAYOR: I WANT TO ASK A QUESTION ON THIS. DOES THIS MEAN THE MOTION HAS A SPREAD OF 4 TO 6000 SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL SPACE ON THE BOTTOM FLOOR FACING SUNSET? IS THAT WHAT THAT MEANS?

OKAY. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: THAT IS MY

UNDERSTANDING. >> MAYOR: CAN I MAKE A FRIENDLY

REQUEST TO SPECIFY 6000? >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I'M SORRY.

>> MAYOR: CAN I MAKE A SPECIAL REQUEST TO MAKE A MINIMUM OF 6000? WE GET THESE INDICATIONS THAT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE RETAIL AT THE BOTTOM LEVEL OF THESE BUILDINGS AND THEN YOU KNOW, IT GOES AWAY.

I AM MUCH MORE AMENABLE FROM 6000 THAT I AM 46,000.

>> COUNCIL MEMBER: I CAN RESTATE THE MOTION.> MAYOR:

ONLY IF YOU SUPPORT IT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE A SPECIAL USE PERMIT ON MULTIFAMILY DRAWINGS ON THE .6 ACRES OF PROPERTIES ZONED FORM-BASED NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT AND THE CONDITION THAT THE RETAIL SQUARE FOOTAGE IS

6000 MINIMUM. >> COUNCIL MEMBER: I SECONDS.

>> SPEAKER: AS MICHIGAN. >> MAYOR: IN ACTION CONSIDER ACTION TO APPROVE AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE CODE OF 8C ORDINANCES TO ADOPT COMPREHENSIVE REGULATIONS FOR THE DISCHARGE. OF INDUSTRIAL WASTES INTO THE SANITARY SEWER SYSTEM. WE DO NOT HAVE A PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS ONE. WHO IS TAKING THIS ONE?

>> SPEAKER: MAYOR AND COUNCIL. WE ARE SEEKING APPROVAL OF AN ORDINANCE AMENDING OUR PRETREATMENT OF INDUSTRIAL WASTE TO ARTICLE 3 SANITARY SEWER SYSTEMS. THE CITY HAS INDUSTRIAL PRETREATMENT PROGRAMS TO REGULATE, MONITOR THE DISCHARGE OF INDUSTRIAL WASTE.

ADDITIONALLY THE INDUSTRIAL WASTE ADVERSELY AFFECTS THE USE OF CHEMICAL COAGULANTS, ABSORBENCY AND OXYGEN ISER'S TO CONTAMINANTS IN WASTEWATER. NEXT OBJECTIVE IS TO GRANT THE PASS-THROUGH ORGANISMS THROUGH LAKES AND RECYCLE AND RECLAIM THIS WASTE AND SLEDGE AND LAST ONE IS TO MAINTAIN A QUALITY OF OUR TREATED EFFLUENT AND BIOSOLIDS IT WON'T AFFECT SYSTEM COSTS WHICH WILL BE AFFECTED IN THE RATE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE LAURA? THE INDUSTRIAL WASTE ORDINANCE PROVIDES MUNICIPALITIES LEGAL AUTHORITY TO REGULATE INDUSTRIAL DISCHARGES AND PROTECT IT'S WASTEWATER SYSTEM.

THE CITY OF ROWLETT HAS TWO BUSINESSES WITH WASTEWATER DISCHARGE PERMIT AND WE MONITOR SEVERAL OTHERS FOR GREASE AND OIL. THE CITY OF ROWLETT HAS AN AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY OF GARLAND TO REGULATE OUR DISCHARGES AND THEY DO THROUGH CHAPTER 22.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. THE INTER-LOCAL AGREEMENT IS TO THE CITY OF ROWLETT TO ADOPT THE SAME LANGUAGE IN THE CITY OF IRELAND HAS AIDED IT'S WASTE ORDINANCES TO BE COMPLIANT WITH THE TREATMENT PROGRAM REGULATED BY THE EPA AND PER THE LOCAL AGREEMENT OUR ORDINANCE MUST MIRROR OR MATCH GARLAND'S NEW ORDINANCE. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE I AM OPEN FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
