INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION. 5A.

CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL REGARDING A REQUEST BY MARK ENGLISH SAPPHIRE BAY LAND HOLDING FOR APPROVAL OF A REGULATING PLAN AND ASSOCIATED MAJOR WARRANTS FROM THE FORM BASE ORIGAN CODE STANDARDS AS THEY RELATE TO PARKING ALLOCATION, CONTINUOUS FRONDAGE, OPEN SPACE AND RIGHT OF WAY FRONTAGE ON PROPERTY ZONE FORM BASE BAY SIDE SPECIAL DISTRICT FBBS DISTRICT.

THE 116.93-ACRE SITE LOCATED SOUTH OF I30 ON THE CITY OF ROWLETT DALLAS COUNTY TEXAS. BEFORE I RECOGNIZE YOU.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE MISESSIVES BEING ELECTED AS THE VICE CHAIR OF OUR COMMISSION TONIGHT.

>> THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. AS STATED WE ARE CONDUCTING A PUBLIC HEARING. MAKING RECOMMENDATION TO THE CITY COUNCIL ON A REQUEST BY MARK ENGLISH FOR REGULATING PLAN FOR THE SAPPHIRE BAY DEVELOPMENT.

AND THE ASSOCIATED MAJOR WARRANTS REQUESTS AS THEY RELATE TO CONNECTIVITY BLOCK SIZE, PARKING ALLOCATION, CONTINUOUS BUILDING FRONTAGE. THE IMAGE YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE IS THE REGULATING PLAN THAT WAS SUBMITTED FOR REVIEW. ON AUGUST 5 OF 2019 THE SUBJECT PROPERTY WAS PURCHASED BY SAPPHIRE BAY.

AT THE TIME OF PURCHASING THE DEVELOPER ENTERED INTO A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WHICH ESTABLISHED A SET OF DELIVERABLES AND APPROVED THE OVERALL DESIGN AND CONFIGURATION OF THE PROJECT. THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT STATES HAD THE PROJECT MUST RECEIVE APPROVAL OF A REGULATING PLAN TO ESTABLISH THE OVERALL SITE DESIGN FAZING FIRE CIRCULATION AND TREE MITIGATION. AS PART OF THE REGULATING PLAN APPROVAL MAJOR WARRANTS WHICH ARE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE OVERALL DESIGN ARE BEING REQUESTED TO DEVELOP THE 116-ACRE PROPERTY. THE FIRST MAJOR WARRANT THAT IS BEFORE YOU TODAY THE S TITLED PARKING LOTS DOMINATING STREETSCAPE. IT IS MAJOR WARRANT FROM SECTION 2.4.1F. 2.43A AND 2.43000 ALLOW PARKING LOTS TO DOMINATE THE STREETSCAPE AND PUBLIC REALLY AM LONG THE NORTH PARKING BLOCK AND NORTHERN THEATER BLOCK.

YOU CAN SEE HERE IN THE IMAGE -- LET'S SEE I HAVE A POINTER HERE.

YOU CAN SEE IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT THERE ARE FOUR PARKING LOTS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED WITH THE BLUE BOXES

[00:05:03]

THAT DOMINATE STREETSCAPE PER THE FORM BASE CODE REQUIREMENTS.

PARKING LOTS ARE REQUIRED TO BE LOCATED BEHIND BUILDINGS AN NOT ALONG STREETSCAPE. IN THIS CASE THE PARKING LOTS ARE PRIMARILY ALONG THE I30 CORRIDOR ALONG THE I30 FRONTAGE ROAD THERE. IS SIGNIFICANT GRADE IN THIS AREA WHERE THE PARKING LOTS WILL BE AT A DIFFERENT LEVEL THAN THE FRONTAGE ROADS. THERE WILL BE LIMITED ACCESS IN THESE AREAS. THE PURPOSE THAT IS ALL SEE ARE THE FRONTAGE LOCATIONS WHERE THERE IS RIGHT OF WAY AND ROADWAY WHERE THE PARKING LOTS ARE CURRENTLY NOT ALLOWED TO DOMINATE THE STREETSCAPE. ALONG WITH ALLOWING THIS WARRANT, IT DOES CREATE A CONFLICT WITH OTHER SECTIONS IN THE CODE INCLUDING THE 80% MINIMUM BUILDING FRONTAGE THAT IS REQUIRED ALONG THE RIGHT OF WAYS.

AGAIN AS SHOWN IN PURPLE , THE FORM BASE CODE REQUIRES THAT THE PURPLE AREA IS FILLED WITH BUILDING FACADES THE LENGTH OF THE BUILDING FACADE AT A MINIMUM OF 80%.

SO SHOULD BE FILLED WITH BUILDINGS UP TO 80%.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS PARKING LOTS WOULD NOT DOMINATE THE STREETSCAPE. THAT AGAIN IS THE FIRST REQUEST IN FRONT OF YOU. TWO CONSIDERATIONS THE PROPOSED LOTS BACK UP TO THE FRONTAGE ROAD OR TWO INTERNAL ROADS.

BECAUSE THERE IS ANTICIPATED GRADE DIFFERENTIAL AND LIMITED ACCESS THE SITE ALONG THE FRONTAGE ROAD PRESENTS A CHALLENGE ADHERING TO THE REQUIREMENTS.

WARRANT TWO IS SIMILAR. PARK AGO JANE TO A SIDEWALK.

APPROXIMATE IN THESE CASES BECAUSE OF THE BLOCK AND LOT LAYOUT WE HAVE BLOCKS IN THIS DEVELOPMENT THAT ARE ESSENTIALLY HALF BLOCKS. WHERE BUILDINGS FRONT BOTH ON AN INTERNAL STREET AND FRONT ON THE LAKEFRONT.

THE FORM BASE CODE REQUIRES BUILDINGS ADJACENT TO THE LAKEFRONT PROVIDE A FRONT DOOR ENTRY ALONG THAT LAKEFRONT AND TREATED AS A FRONTAGE. IN THIS DISTRICT THE FRONTAGE REQUIREMENTS FOR RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS ARE ESSENTIALLY A STORE FRONTAGE ON THAT GROUND FLOOR.

SO YOU HAVE THOSE DUAL FRONTS FACING THE LAKE.

BECAUSE OF THE LIMITED SIZE OF THE BLOCK THERE ARE NO OTHER PLACES TO PLACE PARKING BUT ADJACENT TO THE SIDES OF THE BUILDINGS. IN THIS CASE AGAIN THESE PARKING LOTS WILL BE EITHER ADJACENT TO OPEN SPACE OR RIGHT OF WAY AND THAT IS WHAT THE MAJOR WARRANT REQUEST IS ALLOWING.

IT'S GRANTING THE ACCESS TO THOSE TO ALLOW PARK LOTS IN THAT LOCATION. THESE PARKING LOTS ARE LOCATED IN STRATEGIC LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT.

SO THAT THEY WOULD PROVIDE FOR PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE WATER FRONT AND TO THE TRAILS. PARKING FOR THOSE AND THE APPLICANT HAS AGREED TO ALLOW THOSE REMAIN PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THAT ACCESS. ALSO IN ADDITION THAT DOESN'T ALLOW THE WARRANT DOES NOT MITIGATE FROM THE LANDSCAPE SCREENING REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE STILL REQUIRED AND WOULD STILL BE IN PLACE FOR ANY PARKING LOTS ADJACENT TO RIGHT OF WAY.

THEY WOULD BE REQUIRED TO PLANT A HEDGE ROW, HAVE A FENCE AND TREE COVER. TWO CONSIDERATIONS IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE SITE. THE ROAD NETWORK AND BLOCK STRUCTURE CONTAIN HALF BLOCKS. AND THE APPLICANT HAS INDICATED THOSE WILL BE UTILIZED AS SHARED LOTS.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE THIS C ROADWAY TRANSITIONING TO AN A ROADWAY AND BACK TO A C ROADWAY CIRCULATES THROUGH THE SITE AND IS ADJACENT TO TOWN HOMES THAT ARE REQUIRED TO FRONT ON THAT ROADWAY N. ADDITION THESE TOWN HOMES ARE SITUATED ALONG THE LAKE AND HAVE THOSE FRONTAGE REQUIREMENT AS LONG THE LAKE AS WELL. THEY ARE REQUIRED THE FRONT ALONG THE LAKE, PROVIDE FRONT DOOR ACCESS DIRECT ACCESS TO THE TRAIL IN THOSE LOCATIONS. BECAUSE OF THE NARROWNESS OF THE LOT AND THE ABILITY TO PULL RIGHT INTO AND PARK OFF OF THE STREET, THAT IS THE REQUEST BEFORE YOU THAT THESE GARAGES BE PLACED ALONG THE ROADWAY WHICH IS IN VAGUES OF FORM BASE CODE WHICH REQUIRES REAR ENTRY FOR TOWN HOMES.

ALTHOUGH GARAGES ARE FACING THE STREET.

IT WILL CONTAIN AN AMENITY ZONE. BUILDS ARE REQUIRED THE FRONT ON

[00:10:06]

LAKE AND OPEN SPACE. THIS WILL BE ALLOWED TO BACK ON TO THE TRAIL. THE APPLICANT HAS GREED PROHIBIT CERTAIN FUNCTIONS TO PREVENT URN WARRANTED ELEMENTS ALONG TRAILS AND OPEN SPACES THAT INCLUDE DUMPSTERS, PARKING, BLANK FACADES. UTILITY BOXES, LOADING ZONES AND FENCES. WHAT THIS DOES IF THE MAJOR WARRANT SA LOUD, IT WILL MITIGATE THE REQUIREMENT.

WITH THAT THE FORM BASE CODE OUTLINES THE CRITERIA FOR MAJOR WARRANTS. IT SAYS THE CITY COUNCIL MAY APPROVE A WARRANT IF IT MEETS THE GENERAL INTENT OF THIS CHAPTER L. RUM IN IMPROVED PROJECT.

WILL NOT PRO VENT THE REALIZIZATION OF THE FORM BASE DISTRICT. NOTICES WERE SENT OUT.

THIS PROPERTY IS PRETTY ISOLATED IN THE CITY AND TEEN 500-FOOT BUFFER REACHED ONE PROPERTY AND SO WE SENT OUT NOTICES.

WE RECEIVED ONE NOTICE IN THE 500 COURTESY RANGE AND OPPOSITION. WITH THAT STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF ALL THE WARRANTS AS PRESENTED.

THE PROPOSED MAJOR WARRANTS ARE NOT ANTICIPATED TO COMPROMISE THE INTENT OF THE FORM BASE DISTRICT AND KEEPING WITH THE VISION OF THE MASTER PLANNED DEVELOPMENT.

WITH THAT DEVELOPER IS HERE. I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY

QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE. >> DO THEY HAVE A PRESENTATION?

>> JUST ANSWER QUESTIONS. >> BEFORE YOU COME UP.

I WANT TO ASK YOU SOMETHING OR JUST ASK YOU TO DESCRIBE THIS IS APPROVAL OF A REGULATING PLAN AND MAJOR WARRANTS.

AS YOU SAID IN THE WORK SESSION EARLIER.

THIS IS NOT THE -- CAN YOU GO INTO THE STEPS FOR THE PUBLIC THAT IS HERE TONIGHT AND THOSE WATCHING ON TV WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. THE FRAMEWORK PLAN ESTABLISHES THE BASE ZONING OF THE PROPERTIFUL IT ESTABLISHES CERTAIN CRITERIA SUCH AS OPEN SPACE AREAS.

IT SERVES AS A FAZING PLAN THAT OUTLINES HOW THE PROPERTY WOULD BE DEVELOPED FROM FAZING STANDPOINT AND GENERALLY SHOWS STREETS. IT SHOWS OPEN SPACE AND BLOCKS.

IT GENERALLY DOES NOT SHOW BUILDING FOOTPRINTS AND DOES NOT GO INTO GREAT DETAIL WITH SIDEWALKS AND TREES.

THE APPLICANT PROVIDED MORE INFORMATION THAN IS NECESSARY IN A REGULATING PLAN. THE MAJOR WARRANTS ARE TAYLORED TO TALK ABOUT AND DESCRIBE THOSE WARRANT AS THEY RELATE TO REGULATING PLAN. AS FAR AS THE FINAL SHAPE OF THE BUILDING, AS FAR AS HOW MANY TREES ARE ALONG THE ROADWAY, THAT ALL COMES LATER IN THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN.

>> WE SEE PARKING LOTS AND IN EVERYBODY'S HEAD YOU THINK BIG EMPTY PARKING LOTS AN HIGHWAYS AND STUFF.

THERE IS NO LANDSCAPING ON THIS YET.

THAT COMES IN THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT IS GOING TO BE SUBSEQUENT TO THIS REGULATING PLAN WHERE WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO THE WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE BIG PARKING LOTS.

THE DEVELOPER IS NOT GOING TO DEVELOP SOMETHING WITHOUT TREES AND MAKING IT LOOK GOOD. IT'S NOT GOING TO BE LIKE A MALL OR SOMETHING. ANYWAY, THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY IS AWARE OF THAT THERE IS A FURTHER STEPS TO GO ON THIS BEFORE WE -- BEFORE IT GETS TOTALLY --

>> THAT IS CORRECT. THE REASON WHY THERE WAS THIS LEVEL OF DETAIL THAT WAS DEVELOPED, IT GOES BACK TO THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT AND THOSE THINGS THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE LAGOON, CONVENTION CENTER, THINGS LIKE THAT WERE SHOWN IN ORDER TO CAP CURE THAT IN THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

THEY ARE ALREADY AT THAT LEVEL OF DETAIL.

WE WERE HAPPY TO RESITE AT THIS STAGE.

[00:15:01]

>> MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA IF WE HAVE THE APPLICANT INTRODUCE THEMSELVES EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T HAVE A PRESENTATION AND WE CAN HAVE QUESTIONS FROM THE WHOLE COMMISSION TO ANYBODY.

IF YOU COULD HAVE THE APPLICANT STEP FORWARD AND STATE YOUR NAME

AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD. >> MY NAME IS MARK ENGLISH.

I REPRESENT THE SAPPHIRE BAY ENTITY.

MY ADDRESS IS 3019 SHADOW DRIVE MANY ARLINGTON.

>> DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD ON THE PRESENTATION?

>> NO. TABLE AMOUNT OF TIME WE'VE PUT THIS WITH THE STAFF CARLOS AN DANIEL BOTH HAS BEEN EXTENSIVE AND I DON'T THINK I COULD ADD A LOT TO IT.

IT'S PRETTY COMPREHENSIVE. >> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF OR THE DEVELOPER AT THIS TIME ON THIS REGULATING PLAN AND REQUEST FOR

FOUR MAJOR WARRANTS? >> THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING.

AT THIS TIME I'M GOING TO OPEN THE FLOOR FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO ADDRESS THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION ON THIS ISSUE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION ON THIS ISSUE PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AND I WILL RECOGNIZE YOU. YES.

PLEASE COME FORWARD STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD.

PUBLIC COMMENTS. >> GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME IS MATTHEW HIGHS WITH W3 LUXURY LIVING.

WE'RE THE DEVELOPER OWNER OPERATOR OF THE MANSIONS BAYSIDE , THE TOWERS AND MANSIONS BY THE LAKE.

WE'RE OPPOSED TO THESE MAJOR WARRANTS THAT WOULD REDUCE STANDARDS IN PLACE THE WERE PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED TO ENSURE HIGH QUALITY DEVELOPMENT. WE'RE OPPOSED TO GRANTING RELIEF OF ANY KIND WITHOUT OFFSETTING IMPROVEMENTS.

I DIDN'T HEAR ANY. I JUST HEAR RELIEF BEING SOUTH.

SO NORMALLY MAJOR WARRANTS REQUIRE OFFSETTING IMPROVEMENTS THAT CREATE AN OVERALL TRACTIVE CONTRIBUTION TO THIS FORM BASE DISTRICT. I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THANKSGIVING NO MAJOR WARRANTS WERE SOUTH OR APPROVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION TO DATE IN BAYSIDE NORTH.

WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE IT WORK. APPROVAL OF THESE MAJOR WARRANTS WILL I DID THROUGHOUT CURRENT HIGH STANDARDS BAYSIDE NORTH INVESTMENT RELIED ON. WE PERSONALLY HAVE INVESTED $200 MILLION IN FORM BASE CODE PROJECTS.

THAT WILL BE DEVALUED IF THESE MAJOR WARRANTS ARE APPROVED.

TO US IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE EVALUATION CRITERIA OF SECTION 1.5.3 HAS BEEN ACHIEVED NECESSARY FOR CITY COUNCIL TO APPROVE THESE MAJOR WARRANTS. IN SUMMARY WE'RE OPPOSED TO RELIEF WITHOUT OFFSETTING ENHANCEMENT OR AN OVERALL ENHANCEMENT. THANK YOU.

[5B. Conduct a public hearing and make a recommendation to City Council regarding a request by Mike Martinie, on behalf of DHI Communities, and Walter Guillaume, First Baptist Church of Rowlett, to rezone the subject property from General Office (0-2) District and Commercial/Retail Highway (C-3) District to Planned Development (PD) District for Commercial/Retail Highway (C-3) District uses and Form-Based Urban Village (FB-UV) District uses. The 28.93-acre site is located at the northeast corner of Main Street and President George Bush Turnpike, in the City of Rowlett, Dallas County, Texas.]

CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL REGARDING A REQUEST BY MIKE MARTINI ON BEHALF OF DHI COMMUNITIES AND WALTER FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF ROWLETT TO REZONE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM GENERAL OFFICE O2 DISTRICT AND COMMERCIAL RETAIL HIGHWAY C3 DISTRICT TO PLANNED DEVELOPMENT

[00:20:03]

DISTRICT FOR COMMERCIAL RETAIL HIGHWAY C3 DISTRICT USES AND FORM BASED URBAN VILLAGE DISTRICT USES.

THE 28.93-ACRE SITE LOCATED AT THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF MAINSTREET AND PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE IN THE CITY OF

ROWLETT DALLAS COUNTY TEXAS. >> THANK YOU.

THIS IS A REZONING FOR PROPERTY FROM COMMERCIAL C3 DISTRICT IN GENERAL OFFICE O2 DISTRICT DEVELOPMENT FOR COMMERCIAL RETAIL HIGHWAY C3 DISTRICT USES AND FORM BASE URBAN VILLAGE DISTRICT USES. AND ALSO THIS WILL ACCOMPANY A CONCEPTUAL PLAN FOR THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF ROWLETT CAMPUS AND MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT. AND ALSO PART OF THIS CONCEPT PLAN IS PART OF THE ZONING REQUEST THAT WE ARE PRESENTING BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING. SO AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE PROPERTY THE SURROUNDING AREA IS ABUTTED BY DART RAIL.

IT'S ALSO BY SINGLE FAMILY. ALSO ACROSS THE STREET ACROSS PGBT IS FORM BASE DISTRICT ZONING.

>> LOCATED ON THE SITE NOT ON THE SITE BUT SOUTH OF THE SITE THE TEXAS POWER AND LIGHT SUBSTATION AND ABUTS THE PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH AND ALSO HAS AN EASEMENT FOR OVERHEAD ELECTRICAL WIRES THAT SPAN NORTH TO LAKE VIEW PARKWAY.

THE EASTERN -- SUBJECT PROPERTY IS AT THIS TIME ZONED AS TWO DIFFERENT ZONING DISTRICTS AND THEY ARE C3 AND 02 DISTRICTS.

WITH THIS PROPERTY THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN DOES DESIGNATE THIS AREA AS MIXED USE WHICH MIXED USE ALLOWS FOR VERTICAL MIXED USE REFERRING TO MULTISTRUCTURES WITH MULTIFAMILY OR OFFICES RESIDENTIAL AND NONRESIDENTIAL USES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO EACH OTHER. THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IS CONSISTENT THE PLAN, IT'S GENERAL PURPOSE AND THE DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES A HORIZONTAL MIX OF USES RANGING FROM RELIGIOUS ASEMILY TO RETAIL, COMMERCIAL TO

MULTIFAMILY. >> SO THE CONSIDERATIONS FOR HAD PLAN DEVELOPMENT WE HAVE AND THE PURPOSE OF THIS PLAN DEVELOPMENT THEY ARE REQUESTING IS TO ESTABLISH TWO DISTINCT DISTRICT TONS SUBJECT PROPERTY. TRACK ONE IS 17 ACRES.

TRACT TWO IS 11 ACRES AND IT WILL BE DEVELOPED WITH MULTIFAMILY USE. AS YOU CAN SEE HERE -- AS YOU CAN SEE WITH THE DIAGRAM SHOWN THERE, THERE IS TWO EXISTING ZONINGS. YOU CAN SEE THE CAMPUS THEY ARE PROPOSING AS WELL. TRACK ONE WILL BE DEVELOPED IN TWO PHASES. IT WILL COMES PLY WITH THE C3 DISTRICTS. PHASE ONE WILL CONSIST OF A 42,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING CONSISTING OF 450 SEAT WORSHIP CENTER, LOBBY, TWO STORY EDUCATION BUILDING.

183 PARKING SPACES TO ACCOMMODATE THESE USES AND TWO MONUMENT SIGNS. AND ALSO FROM THERE THERE WILL BE TWO INGRESS EGRESS POINTS ON MAINSTREET.

PHASE TWO, THEY PROPOSE TO HAVE A 60,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING

[00:25:01]

CONSISTING OF A WORSHIP CENTER AND A LOBBY EXPANSION, A DINING AREA AND ADDITIONAL EDUCATION BUILDING.

FUTURE AMPHITHEATRE, VOLLEYBALL COURT, OUTDOOR PLAY AREA, 337 PARK AREAS TO ACCOMMODATE THE USES AS WELL.

PONDS AND A LOT FOR POTENTIAL FUTURE SALE.

WITH THIS THEY PROPOSED TWO MONUMENT SIGNS.

THEY WANT THE CODE REQUIREMENTS OF THE ROWLETT CODE.

THERE WILL BE A DEVIATION WITH THE SIGN ONE WHICH REFLECTS BASE THAT WILL BE ABOUT FOUR INCHES SHORTER THAN WHAT IS REQUIRED BY THE CODE. THE CODE DOES REQUIRE THE BASE BE A MINIMUM OF TWO FEET. THEY ARE PROPOSING ONE FLUSH AND FOUR INCHES. LANDSCAPING ON THIS SITE WILL IMPLY WITH THE LANDSCAPING MITIGATION AND REQUIREMENTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT CODE. THEY WANT TO INCORPORATE THE MASSIVE TREE CLUSTERS THEY HAVE ON THE PROPERTY INTO THE LANDSCAPING PLANS THEY REQUIRE. THAT WILL BE REQUIRED AT TIME OF DEVELOPMENT. WITH TRACT TWO , THIS WILL DEVELOP IN ONE PHASE. THIS WILL BE A MIXED OF RESIDENTIAL COMPONENTS WITH MINOR COMMERCIAL RETAIL IN THE FORM OF LIVE WORK UNITS. THIS DEVELOPMENT WILL IMPLY WITH THE FORM BASE URBAN VILLAGE DISTRICT.

THIS DEVELOPMENT WILL CONSIST OF A SIX THREE STORY BUILDINGS AND MAXIMUM OF 275 UNITS. AND IT IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THERE WILL BE 133 UNITS AT ONE BEDROOM.

101 UNIT AT TWO BEDROOMS AND 16 UNITS AT THREE BEDROOMS. THEY WILL HAVE A LIVE WORK AREA FLOOR AND THAT IS BUILDING SIX WHICH WILL CONSIST OF COMMERCIAL COMPONENT.

ALSO TRACT TWO VOL YOUR OTHER AMENITIES AS FAR AS YOUR LEASING OFFICE, TWO ACCESS POINTS OFF OF MAIN THAT WILL CIRCLE AROUND THE ENCORE SUBSTATION LOCATED TO THE SOUTH OF THE PROPERTY.

THEY WILL HAVE 94 GARAGE SPACES AND THEY WILL BE TUCKED UNDER PARK. YOU'LL HAVE 91 ON STREET PARKING AND THEY WILL BE ANGLED AND 240 SURFACE PARKING SPACES.

THEY WILL HAVE A DOG PARK AND 1.12 ACRES OF PASSIVE OPEN SPACE. SOME OF THE CONSTRAINTS AGAIN MENTIONED BEFORE IS THAT THERE IS A 1247 SQUARE FOOT ENCORE SUBSTATION AND ALSO THE TEXAS POWER AND LIGHT OVERHEAD ELECTRIC LINES. THIS WILL LIMIT THE ABILITY OF THE BUILDING AND SO AS YOU CAN SEE ON THAT SITE PLAN YOU SEE THE FIELD OPEN SPACE THAT'S WHERE THE ELECTRIC LINES ARE LOCATED. ALSO WITH THIS PLAN DEVELOPMENT CONSIDERATION, THEY PROPOSE TO PROVIDE INCREASED LANDSCAPING ALONG THE DART RAILROAD BUFFER WITH THERE IS ALREADY EXISTING CONSIDER EXISTING HEAVY TREE LINE.

AND THIS IS FOR CONSIDERATION OF THE NEIGHBORS THAT ARE LOCATED IN THE EDGEWATER SUBDIVISION. SITE ACCESS AND CONNECTIVITY WILL BE AGAIN FROM MAINSTREET IN PGBT.

AND THE PGBT ACCESS WILL BE IN THE FUTURE, PROPOSED IN THE FUTURE. MAINSTREET AS WE NO, IT'S A 60-FOOT TWO LANE UNDIVIDED THOROUGH FARE.

IT WILL STAY THIS WAY. ONLY ADDITION IS 250 LINEAR FEET ALONG MAINSTREET ACCOMMODATE THE 12-FOOT WIDE TURN RIGHT LANE AT PGBT AND MAINSTREET. PROVIDE TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS FOR THE ROWLETT CHURCH CAMPUS. IT WAS DETERMINED BY THE ASSISTANT CITY ENGINEER THAT THIS -- THERE WILL NOT BE SIGNIFICANT TRAFFIC ON THE SITE BECAUSE OF THE USES THAT ARE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH OF THE PROPERTY WHICH IS THE ROWLETT HIGH SCHOOL WHEN CHILL FACTORS USUALLY HAS THEIR TIME OF TRAFFIC DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON, EARLY MORNING WHERE THE CHURCH WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE THEIR TRAFFIC ON SUNDAY ON THE WEEKENDS. FOR THE MULTIFAMILY PORTION, THERE HAS BEEN A TIA SUBMITTED. AND AT THIS TIME IT WILL BE REVIEWED MORE IN DETAIL ALONG WITH THE ROWLETT -- CAN YOU SAY

WHAT T IRKS SARKS. >> TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS IS

[00:30:01]

THE TIA. THEY WILL LOOK AT THE TRAFFIC TO SEE FIT AFFECTS THE ROAD AND THE CAPACITY IF THE ROAD HAS THE CAPACITY FOR THE TRAFFIC HAD COULD BE CREATED BY THESE USES.

AS FOR THE CHURCH PORTION, IT WAS FOUND THAT IT WOULD NOT BE A HINDRANCE FOR THE TRAFFIC. IT WOULD NOT CREATE MORE TRAFFIC. BUT AGAIN, THESE ITEMS , THE TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS WILL BE LOOKED AT ONCE THEY START DEVELOPING. SOME OF THESE NUMBERS ARE PRELIMINARY. FOR INFRASTRUCTURE THERE IS EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILABLE ON MAINSTREET AND ON ALONG PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE.

EXISTING WATER INFRASTRUCTURE IS AVAILABLE ON EDGEWATER DRIVE.

AND NORTHEAST OF THE PROJECT SITE ACROSS -- RAILROAD BY THE ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOOD. DURING SITE DEVELOPMENT PLAN REVIEW, THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO CONDUCT WATER AND WASTE WATER CAPACITY ANALYSIS. AND THEN CHURCH HAS EXISTING POND ON THE SITE THAT WILL BE USED FOR DETENTION AND THE MULTIFAMILY APARTMENTS WILL DISCHARGE BOTH POST DEVELOPMENT STORMWATER TO EXISTING CULVERTS UNDER THE DART RAIL.

AND THE PRELIMINARY DRAINAGE REPORT HAS CONFIRMED HA IT MAY HAVE SUFFICIENT EXCESS CAPACITY. SO WE SENT OUT NOTIFICATIONS WITHIN THE 200 AND 500-FOOT. AS OF LAST WEEK WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY IN OPPOSITION. WE DID HOWEVER I BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN PUT ON YOUR DIOCESE THAT YOU RECEIVED NOTICES.

WE HAD ONE IN OPPOSITION BUT WE HAVE MULTIPLE LETTERS THAT WERE IN SUPPORT OF THIS DEVELOPMENT. SO THE RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS PROJECT IS APPROVAL OF THE PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT CONCEPT PLAN AND THE FREE STANDING SIGNAGE DETAILS.

THE PROPOSED USE CONFORMS WITH THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN WHILE PRESENTING AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION TO SITE CONSTRAINTS THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BEHIND TER DEVELOPABILITY OF THE SITE.

THIS CONCLUDES THE PRESENTATION AND STAFF IS AVAILABLE FOR ANY

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. >> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF AT THIS TIME? DOES THE APPLICANT HAVE A

PRESENTATION? >> HE DOES.

>> QUESTIONS OR DO WE WANT THE APPLICANT TO MAKE THEIR PRESENTATION? WE WILL WAIT AND WE ARE READY FOR THE APPLICANT TO MAKE THEIR PRESENTATION.

IF YOU CAN STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD PLEASE

SIR. >> MY NAME IS COLE HEDGE COOK.

I'M THE PASTOR AT FIRST BAPTIST ROWLETT.

MY ADDRESS IS 4901 BUY DRIVE ROWLETT TEXAS.

FIRST OF ALL LET ME SAY THANK YOU TO CITY COMMISSIONERS HERE WITH OUR ZONING AND PLANNING CHAIRMAN.

WE'RE EXCITED. THIS HAS BEEN THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING FOR TO US GET A PROPOSE THAT WILL WE FEEL GREAT ABOUT.

THAT WE THINK WOULD BENEFIT OUR CITY AND COMMUNITY.

FUR UNAWARE WE'VE BEEN A PART OF THE CITY OF ROWLETT FOR OVER 102 YEARS. DURING THAT TIME WE HAVE SEEN OUR CHURCH BE ABLE TO COME ALONGSIDE OUR COMMUNITY AND HELP OUT WHETHER IT'S WITH FINANCES OR FOOD OR WHENEVER THE TORNADO CAME THROUGH, WE WERE ONE OF THE CENTRAL PLACES WHERE THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL POINT PEOPLE TOWARDS WHERE WE COULD OFFER TANGIBLE HOPE IN THE FORM OF PACKING SUPPLIES AND FOOD AND BABY ITEMS TO SERVE OUR CITY. IN ADDITION WE'RE ABLE TO GIVE COUNSELING AND DISASTER RELIEF. IN FRONT OF OUR CHURCH WE HAD THE TEXAS BAPTIST MEN WHO WERE THERE FIRST IN THE CITY AND THEY WERE ALSO LAST TO LEAVE. WE'RE VERY GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE TO SERVE OUR CITY HOWEVER WE CAN.

ALSO ONE OF THE THINGS -- IN THE YEAR 2000 WE PURCHASED THE 29.9 ACRES OF LAND WE'RE DISCUSSING TODAY.

WE'VE BEEN SIT THONG PROJECT AS A CHURCH FOR 19 YEARS.

WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT FINALLY BEING ABLE TO DO SOMETHING.

THREE YEARS AGO WE GOT SERIOUS. I'VE BEEN AT THE CHURCH FOR FIVE YEARS AND ONE MISSOURI AND THREE YEARS AGO WE GOT SERIOUS ABOUT TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN MAKE THIS WORK THAT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL NOT ONLY TO OUR CHURCH BUT ALSO TO THE COMMUNITY. WE BEGAN MEETING WITH CITY OFFICIALS AND ASKING FOR OPINIONS AND THOUGHTS AN HOW WE COULD DEVELOP THIS. WE CAME ONE OUR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR THE LAND AND WE DETERMINED THAT THERE BOWLED ROUGHLY 11 ACRES THAT WE COULD FIND ANOTHER USE FOR AS OUR DESIRE TO BE A COMMUNITY CHURCH. WE DON'T HAVE A DESIRE TO BE A METRO CHURCH. WE WANT TO BE A CHURCHTA CAN

[00:35:01]

REACH PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY. IF WE REACH INTO OTHER CITIES THAT'S GREAT. THAT IS PART OF WHAT WE WANTED TO DO. AS WE LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT COULD BENEFIT CITY AND BUILD A BETTER ROWLETT.

TWO YEARS AGO WE WENT IN AND MET WITH DANIEL AND THAT TEAM WITHIN THE CITY JUST TO GET THEIR OPINION ON HOW WE COULD PARTNER WITH THE 11 ACRES. AS THAT CAME WHAT FOLLOWED WAS THE CITY'S ADVICE TO FIND AN URBAN VILLAGE DEVELOP.

WE BEGAN TAKING BIDS AND TALKING TO PEOPLE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS THE BEST PARTNER. DHI CAME INTO THE PICTURE.

IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR ALSO KNOWN AS D.R. HORTON.

THEY ARE GREAT DEVELOPERS IN OUR CITY.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT THEM THEY PROVIDE HIGH QUALITY UP SCALE DEVELOPMENTS. THEY DON'T CUT CORN ESCAMBIA.

THEY HAVE JUST WITH THEIR PRESENCE A POSITIVE IMPACT WITHIN THE CITY AND EVERYWHERE THEY GO.

WE KNOW THAT ROWLETT IS NOT THE ONLY CITY IN WHICH THEY DEVELOP.

THEY ARE A MAJOR BENEFIT AS A PARTNER WITH US.

WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF JUST BEING A PART OF WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO. THEY ARE PROVEN VALUE IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT BEING A TOP TEN EMPLOYER.

BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS, UP SCALE DEVELOPMENTS AND KNOWING THEY WILL BAY COMPLEMENT TO THE VISION WE HAVE WITH OUR CHURCH THE PROVIDE A GREAT RESOURCE TO OUR COMMUNITY.

I LOVE THE IDEA THAT DHI WILL PRESENT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE LIKE SINGLE MOMS WHO MAYBE CAN'T AFFORD A HOUSE OR DOWN PAYMENT ON A HOUSE TO HAVE A QUALITY LIVING SPACE.

SO TO THE WHERE MAYBE A SINGLE MOM CAN'T GET THEIR CHILD TO SCHOOL BUT THEY CAN WALK TO THE HIGH SCHOOL.

MAYBE SENIOR ADULTS CAN BE ACROSS FROM THE REC CENTER.

WRUNG FAMILIES CAN BE ACROSS FROM THE COMMUNITY PARK.

WE THINK THIS IS A GREAT USE OF THE SPACE THAT WILL BENEFIT CITY. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT.

OUR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IS A 1500 SEAT WORSHIP CENTER.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A GYM AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LOBBY INSIDE OF THAT LOBBY WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AN INDOOR PLAY AREA.

THE GREAT THING ABOUT THE INDOOR PLAY AREA IS WE CREATED IT WITH YOUNG FAMILIES IN MIND WHERE THEY CAN COME BE A PART OF OUR CHURCH AND HAVE AN INDOOR PLACE ON DAYS LIKE TODAY OR DAYS IN AUGUST. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

ONE OF THE THINGS OUR FELLOWSHIP HALL WILL ALLOW TO US DO IS CONTINUE TO HOST BANK WETS LIKE WE DID ON FRIDAY NIGHT LIKE WE'RE DOING THURSDAY FOR SOME OF OUR CIVIC WORKERS WHO ARE OUT ON THE STREETS DOING THAT AND LIKE WE DID LAST NIGHT FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL AND DIFFERENT WHETHER IT'S TRACK AND FIELD OR I DON'T SAY COUNTRY. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT IT WILL PRESENT FOR US AND THE CHURCH AND THE CITY. FUTURE DEVELOPMENT WE'LL HAVE 1500 SEAT WORSHIP EARN IS. A GYM.

A CHAPEL WHERE HOPEFULLY WE CAN BECOME A WEDDING DESTINATION.

WE DON'T HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN OUR CITY CURRENTLY.

A LOT OF THINGS THAT WHEN WE LOOK AT THE CITY OF ROWLETT AND OUR COMMUNITY, HOW CAN WE BENEFIT OUR COMMUNITY.

WE BELIEVE THAT OUR FUTURE DESIGN IS NOT JUST SOMETHING OF TRYING TO THINK AS A CHURCH BUT TRYING TO THINK WITH THE COMMUNITY IN MIND, HOW CAN WE BE AN AS SET TO THEM.

THOSE ARE THINGS WE THINK OF. WE HAVE PICTURES.

AM I SUPPOSED TO BE CLICKING ON THIS? NOBODY CARES ABOUT WORDS THEY HAVE TO READ.

AS YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THIS, OUR NEW CHURCH CAMPUS GOING TO GIVE US AN EXPANDED COMMUNITY MINISTRY.

WE BELIEVE AS A CHURCH THAT WE DON'T EXIST FOR THE PEOPLE THIS OUR BUILDING. WE EXIST FOR THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF OUR CAMPUS. WE HAVE BEEN INTENTIONAL TO TRY AND HAVE THAT IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY.

WE HAVE FALL FESTIVAL. WE PAY FOR EVERYBODY TO GO TO THE WET ZONE. WHAT WE SEE WITHIN THAT IS WE

[00:40:11]

WANT TO BE A DESTINATION PLACE FOR SENIOR ADULTS AN USE OUR FELLOWSHIP HALL TO DO SOMETHING. WE THOUGHT OF THE NAME JOLLY CITIZENS SO OUR SENIORS CAN COME IN AND LEARN ABOUT BOTANICAL ISSUES OR SECURITY, THINGS LIKE THAT WE CAN OFFER WITH A FREE LUNCH AND EDUCATIONAL LESSON FOR WHOEVER IS THERE.

THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN.

PHASE ONE IN OUR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT.

AS YOU LOOK AT IT THIS IS A BUILDING OF WHAT YOU WOULD SEE FROM MAINSTREET. AND SO IT FITS WITHIN THAT.

WE WANTED TO CREATE AS BEST WE COULD A RUST I CAN LODGE THE EMBODY THE HEART OF ROWLETT WITH THE MODERN TOUCH OF WHAT WE SEE IN ARCHITECTURE TODAY. THIS IS ANOTHER VIEW OF THE BUILDING. WE WANT TO USE NATURAL LIGHTS.

WE WANT TO CREATE KIND OF OUR DREAM WHEN PEOPLE WALK IN IT'S FOR PEOPLE TO THINK I'VE NEVER BEEN THIS A CHURCH BUT I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN TO A LODGE THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS.

JUST THAT COMMUNITY FEELING. WE'LL HAVE AWE PLAYGROUND IN THE BACK FOR THE CHILDREN WHETHER THAT'S DURING THE WEEK OR SUNDAY OR WHENEVER THE CHURCH MEETS. YOU'LL SEE THE POND WHICH WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL ASSET TO THE BUILDING AND COMPLEMENT THE CITY OF ROWLETT TO CREATE AN OASIS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CITY IN THE SUBURBS OF DALLAS. YOU'LL SEE AS YOU ENTER THE BUILDING OUR PRESCHOOL AREA AND WALKING UP A BIG GATHERING SPACE FOR PEOPLE TO MEET AND TO VISIT. THIS IS OUR CONNECTION CENTER.

PART OF THE LOBBY. THE MEADOWS IS THE INDOOR PLAYGROUND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT.

THAT WILL ALL BE OPEN. WE PLAN ON HAVING TIMES TO WHERE YOUNG FAMILIES CAN COME IN AND HAVE AN INDOOR PLAYGROUND IN OUR CITY THAT WE CAN GIVE AS A SERVICE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR MOMS AND DADS AND PEOPLE JUST TO COME AND PLAY AND HANG OUT AND HAVE A GOOD TIME AND A SAFE PLACE FOR THEIR CHILDREN YOUNG PEOPLE TO PLAY THERE. IS ANOTHER VIEW.

WE HAVE SINCE THIS WAS PRODUCED DECIDED TO GET RID OF THAT WALL AND HAVE THE SECURITY AT THE DOOR YOU'LL SEE IN THE MIDDLE ON THE BACK LEFT OF THAT. THAT WILL BE MORE OPEN.

THESE ARE JUST MORE PICTURES OF WHAT THE BUILDING WILL LOOK LIKE ON THE INSIDE. THIS IS OUR STUDENT SPACE.

OUR PRETEEN SPACE. THIS IS OUR PART OF WHAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE FOR THE STUDENTS WHERE THE HIGH SCHOOLERS CAN COME OVER AND HAVE THAT SAFE FUN PLACE TO HANG OUT, STUDY, LEARN, BE TUTORED. JUST ANOTHER PART OF OUR STUDENT AREA. AND SO THIS IS THE MANUALTY OF WHAT WE HAVE WITH OUR FUTURE HOME OF OUR CHURCH THAT WE THINK WILL BE GREAT FOR OUR CHURCH. BUT WE REALLY BELIEVE THIS WILL BE A TREMENDOUS ASSET TO OUR CITY AS WE THINK THE WAY THAT CHURCHES GO FAMILIES GO AND THE WAY FAMILIES GO THE CITY GOES.

WE WANT TO BE MINDFUL TO BE A BENEFIT AND ASSET TO OUR COMMUNITY. ALWAYS REACH OUT WITH OPEN ARMS TO DO WHATEVER WE CAN TO HELP. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE HOME OF OUR CHURCH. WE'RE EXCITED TO HAVE SUCH A WELL PROVEN QUALITY PARTNER LIKE DHI TO COME IN AND DEVELOP A HIGH QUALITY PLACE FOR FAMILIES TO LIVE AND WE THINK IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT FOR THE CITY OF ROWLETT.

PLUS THERE IS GOING TO BE TAXES THAT CAN BE HAD WITH A RESIDENTIAL THING AS WELL. I'D LIKE TO TURN THIS OVER THE WALTER WHO IS OUR EXECUTIVE PASTOR AND HIS NAME IS ON THE

RECOMMENDATION. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I LIVE IN DALLAS TEXAS. NOW YOU SEE WHY I'M EXCITED ABOUT BEING WITH FIRST ROWLETT WORKING WITH MY PASTOR.

THERE ARE A LOT OF EXCITING THINGS HAPPEN.

I'M GOING TO RUN THROUGH A FEW THINGS THAT WILL SPEAK TO THE MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY.

MOST OF THE STATISTICS WE'VE LOOKED AT AND I DON'T NEED TO GO OVER THESE AGAIN. WE'VE LOOKED AT THE PICTURES , THE PLANS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT SHOWING BOTH OF OUR PROPERTIES AND HOW THEY ARE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER.

WE REALLY SEE DHI AS A PARTNER WAS.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID BACK IN NOVEMBER WAS GO DOOR TO DOOR ON THE 200 OR 500 FEET RANGE THAT YOU SEND LETTERS OUT TOO TO THE.

WE HAND DELIVERED 40 OR 41 LETTERS DESCRIBING WHAT WE WERE ASKING IN THE REZONING AND INVITING THEM TO A MEETING AT OUR CHURCH. NOBODY TOOK US UP.

WE'VE STAYED THERE FOR ALMOST AN HOUR WAITING FOR THEM.

WE WERE READY TO SHARE. WE WANTED TO GIVE IT TO THEM EARLY. WE REALLY MADE A STRONG EFFORT TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE COMMUNITY ACROSS THE TRACKS.

THE MERITS OF THE PROPOSAL AS FAR AS WE'RE CONCERNED THE

[00:45:01]

PROPOSED PLAN DISTRICT WILL COMBINE THE TWO ZONING DISTRICTS INTO ONE COHESIVE PLAN THAT CONTAINS A MIXTURE OF USES THAT ARE ESPECIALLY APPROPRIATE FOR THIS LAND.

AS OUR PASS TER REFERRED TO EARLIER WE BEGAN EARLY.

I CAME ON STAFF IN JANUARY OF 2017 AND IN FEBRUARY OR MARCH I HAD MY FIRST MEETING WITH THE CITY AND VERY SOON DISCOVERED WHAT WE NEEDED TO DO BECAUSE WE WERE LOOKING THAT THE 11 ACRES, THEY ENUNLV COOINGED US TO SEE WHAT WE COULD DO USING THE FORM BASE CODE. WE TOOK THAT AS A CHALLENGE.

WE FELT LIKE THAT'S WHAT WE NEEDED TO DO AS A PARTNER WITH THE CITY. DHI COMMUNITIES WILL WE BELIEVE THE ONE WE SELECTED TO PARTNER WITH WILL PROVIDE A QUALITY HOUSING NEAR THE ROWLETT HIGH SCHOOL, ROWLETT COMMUNITY CENTER AND PECAN GROVE PARK. AND THE CHURCH AS A PARTNER WILL PROVIDE A QUALITY SPIRITUAL COMMUNITY FOR THE CITY OF ROWLETT WITH THE MINISTRIES TO ABSOLUTELY EVERY AGE.

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH PROVIDES A MULTIPLE MINISTRIES.

I DON'T NEED TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON THIS.

WE'RE VERY INVOLVED IN MINISTERING TO THE FAMILIES OF ROWLETT. NOW THE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT WILL PROVIDE RESIDENTS THE ABILITY LITERALLY TO WALK TO THE LAKE, TO WALK TO THE CENTER, TO WALK TO THE HIGH SCHOOL AS OUR PASTOR ELUDED EARLIER. THIS RESIDENTIAL MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES A FRONT DOOR ACCESS PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES BECOME MORE INVOLVED IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

OUR DEVELOPMENT WILL HELP FURTHER TER LAND USE PLAN, PART OF THAT IS WE'RE PROUD OF THE STREETSCAPES AND LANDSCAPING THAT IS GOING TO BE DONE. WE THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A REAL ADDITION TO THE COMMUNITY THERE. WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO ADVERSE IMPACT ON THE WIMBLEDON COMMUNITY ACROSS THE DART TRACKS. IN THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY ACCESS TO MAINSTREET. THEY CAN'T -- THEY CAN GO AROUND YOU KNOW BUT THEY HAVE NO DIRECT ACCESS TO MAINSTREET.

THERE IS A RAILROAD SEPARATING THEM FROM OUR DEVELOPMENT WITH 100-FOOT EASEMENT. AND WITH THE CURRENT TREE COVERAGE THERE IS SKIRTING SO THAT THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENT BACK THERE AND I WENT TO EVERY ONE OF THEM.

WE WILL BE ADDING TO THAT TREES. EVEN AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO LOOK FROM THE APARTMENTS INTO THAT.

HERE IS A VIDEO AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT THEY'VE DONE IS 360-DEGREE VIDEO SHOWING WHAT YOU CAN SEE FROM APPROXIMATELY 30 FEET OFF THE GROUND WHICH IS ABOUT WHERE YOU WOULD BE ON THE THIRD FLOOR OF THE APARTMENTS AND SHOWS YOU WE'VE GOT A WONDERFUL SCREEN THAT I THINK THERE IS NO DANGER OF PEOPLE PEEPING IN ON THE HOUSES ACROSS THE TRACKS. THE DART STATION TRACKS.

WE CAN COME BACK TO THAT IF WE NEED TO.

THIS SHOWS VISUALS TAKEN FROM THAT 360 VIEW AND AGAIN NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE LOOKING EAST, WEST, NORTH OR SOUTH THERE IS VERY GOOD COVERAGE BETWEEN WHERE THE MULTIFAMILY APARTMENTS ARE AND WHERE THOSE HOMES ARE. THIS IS JUST SOME MORE DRAWINGS.

I THINK YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN THOSE.

WE BELIEVE THE COMBINATION OF MIXED USE FOR THE PROPERTY IS PROVIDING AN IMPORTANT SERVICE TO THOSE WHO NOW CURRENTLY USE ROWLETT COMMUNITY CENTER AND ROWLETT HIGH SCHOOL.

WE ALSO BELIEVE THAT OUR PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT USE OF THE PROPERTY ESPECIALLY IN THE CONTEXT OF TWO THINGS. MAINSTREET IS A DEADEND STREET AND THE UTILITY , THE ENCORE SUBSTATION MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT GREATLY LIMITS WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THOSE 11 ACRES.

WITH THAT IN MIND W THE LOCATION OF THE ENCORE SUBSTATION, GREATLY LIMITS THE USE OF THOSE 11 ACRES.

DHI COMMUNITY BY REZONING THIS, THIS PROVIDE THE HIGHEST AND BEST USE PROPERTY AND WORKS WELL WITH ALL ADJACENT.

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CITY TO SEE THIS SECTION OF MAINSTREET TO BE FULLY DEVELOPED MANY COMPLIANCE WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. WE APPRECIATE VERY MUCH THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THIS PRESENTATION AND ARE READY TO

[00:50:02]

ANSWER QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE THEM.

>> IS THAT EVERYBODY FROM THE APPLICANT SIDE OF THE PRESENTATION? COMMISSIONERS, ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF OR THE APPLICANT AT THIS TIME BEFORE WE OPEN THE PUBLIC

HEARING? >> YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT PUTTING IN MORE TREES ALONG THE RAILROAD SECTION.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF TRAINS THAT GO THROUGH THERE. IS THERE GOING TO BE ANY TYPE OF FENCE OR WALL TO PREVENT CHILDREN FROM POSSIBLY GOING AND

PLAYING ON THE RAILROAD TRACKS? >> I KNOW THERE WILL BE A FENCE THERE IN THE APARTMENTS ISN'T THAT CORRECT, YES THERE WILL BE,

ABSOLUTELY. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR STAFF

OR THE APPLICANT AT THIS TIME? >> I HAVE ONE QUESTION FOR STAFF. I'M CURIOUS, I HEARD IT TWICE THAT WHEN THE CHURCH CAME TO TO YOU TALK ABOUT DEVELOPING THIS PROPERTY, WAS IT STAFF THAT RECOMMENDED URBAN VILLAGE OR WAS IT THE APPLICANT WANTED TO KNOW CAN YOU GO OVER THE TIME LINE OF THAT BECAUSE AS YOU KNOW IT'S PRESENTLY ZONED 02.

I KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN INDICATES BUT I KNOW WHAT THE ZONING IS. DID YOU RECOMMEND THAT OR DID THEY REQUEST IT THAT'S WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.

>> I'LL FIELD THAT QUESTION. WE'VE HAD A WONDERFUL PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CHURCH AND DHI.

THE CHURCH WAS PROGRESSING WITH THEIR MASTER PLAN AS IT RELATES TO THEIR CAMPUS AND WITH THAT THEY ALSO HAD THE 11 ACRES THEY FELT THEY NEEDED TO UTILIZE WITH AN ALTERNATIVE USE AND OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE THEIR FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS AND COMMITMENTS TOO.

THAT BEING SAID AS WE WERE MOVING FORWARD ONE OF THE DISCUSSIONS THAT DID COME TO LIGHT WAS WHY DON'T WE LOOK AT THE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT COMPONENTS AND EMULATE THE FORM BASED CODE. AS IT RELATES TO THE REQUEST IF YOU NOTICE THE REQUEST IS FOR A CHANGE IN ZONING REGARDLESS ANY RELIGIOUS INSTITUTE IS PERSONALLED IN ANY DISTRICT.

THAT'S NOT THE ISSUE. THE CONCERN WAS IF WE DID OR IF THE CHURCH DID PARCEL OUT THAT LAND AREA AND THERE IS AN OFFICE DESIGNATION ON THAT SMALLER PARCEL OF LAND WOULD IT DEVELOP WITH OFFICE USES. IT'S THROUGH THAT CONVERSATION THAT THE APPLICATION CAME FORWARD AS A CHANGE IN ZONING REQUEST FROM C3 AND 02 I BELIEVE TO PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT FOR C3 USES ANTED MIXED USE COMPONENT.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >> RELATING TO THE PORTION THAT IS ZONED 02 WHERE THE MULTIFAMILY IS BEING PROPOSED.

THE 11 ACRES. WHAT KIND OF SAFETY DISCUSSIONS.

WE'VE GOT THE SUBSTATION THERE. WE'VE GOT BUILDINGS.

MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE SUBSTATION.

POWER LINES RUNNING NORTH NORTHEAST DIRECTLY.

>> AND THE OTHER THING BEING THATN WAS TO CREATE A CHURCHTA WOULD BE VERY VISUAL RIGHT OFF THE CORNER OF MAINSTREET AND GEORGE BUSH TOLL ROAD.

THAT WAS OUR VISION. AND SO WE NEVER CONSIDERED TO PUT THE BUILDING BACK ON THE 11 ACRES.

WE NEVER ONCE CONSIDERED THAT OPTION.

AT THIS TIME WE'RE GOING THE OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

I HAVE SEVERAL SPEAKER REQUESTS HERE.

ANYBODY THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS SUBJECT IS WELCOME.

THE FIRST CARD I HAVE IS FROM MR. TONI ACCUSEDRY.

[00:55:16]

>> WE WON'T START THE CLOCK BECAUSE YOU ARE HANDING THIS

OUT. >> MY NAME IS TONY.

MY WIFE AND I LIVE AT THE END OF EDGEWATER DRIVE.

WHICH IS RIGHT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

I WAS DOING SOME CHECKING AND I FOUND THAT YOU HAVE STAND WHICH CAN IS DIFFERENT WHEN THEY ARE PROPOSING ZONING CHANGES.

I BELIEVE WE DO HAVE SPECIAL STANDING.

WE WILL BE AFFECTED LIKE NO -- THERE IS 47 HOME OWNERS ON THAT ROAD. WE'RE GOING TO BE AFFECTED MORE THAN ANY OTHER HOME OWN ORDINARY REASON THE ROAD.

RIGHT NOW I'M WITH THE HOUSE THAT OVERLOOKS THE SOCCER FIELD.

WE HAVE PEOPLE COMING DOWN NOW THAT I'VE GOT TO CHASE OUT OF MY YARD AWAY FROM MY DOCK OFF MY BOATS AWAY FROM MY JET SKIS FOUR TIMES A DAY. NOW YOU WANT TO ADD A 275 FAMILIES, ANOTHER 500 PEOPLE. WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT IS GOING TO DO? I'M GOING TO BE IP UNDATED WITH PEOPLE. DON'T HAVE A FENCE THERE.

THEY CLOSED OFF THE GATE TO THE REST OF THE PARK SO THERE IS NO PARKING DOWN THERE SO THEY PARK UP IN MY LEASE I PAY TO HAVE EVERY YEAR. I'M OFF SCRIPT HERE.

MY SUBSTANTIAL INTEREST LIKE I SAID, I THINK WE'RE AFFECTED MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE ON THAT ROAD BECAUSE WE'RE EXPOSED AT THE END. AND THAT'S WHAT ALL THOSE PEOPLE COMING DOWN ROAD LOOKING TO DO SOMETHING ARE LOOKING FOR.

THEY ARE GOING TO BE LOOKING TO GET ON MY PROPERTY.

I'VE BEEN HAVING THIS PROBLEM WITH THE CITY FOR YEARS TO HAVE THEM DO SOMETHING ABOUT PROTECTING MY PROPERTY.

THEY'VE DONE NOTHING. I HAD TO PUT UP A FENCE MYSELF.

A PLASTIC FENCE THAT I GOT A LETTER FROM THE CITY SAYING TAKE IT DOWN BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MEET CODE.

YOU ARE NOT DOING NOTHING PROTECT MAINE AND THE BIGGEST THING I HAVE IS THREE TIMES THIS YEAR THERE HAS BEEN CARS CAREENING DOWN MAINSTREET FULL SPEED AHEAD BASHED INTO THE BRIDGE AND WENT OFF INTO THE LAKE.

I'M WALKING WITH MY 11-YEAR-OLD BOY THE GO FISHING ON MY DOCK AND THERE COMES A CAR. TAKES US OUT.

YOU ARE PROPOSING PUTTING ANOTHER 500 CARS IN THIS AREA.

THAT'S WHO WHAT THEY ARE PROPOSING.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE CHURCH.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. SUNDAYS.

THIS RESIDENTIAL THING IS GOING TO HAVE ALL THE PEOPLE THERE ALL THE TIME. 7 DAYS A WEEK.

365 DAYS A YEAR. AND IT'S GOING TO PUT A SUBSTANTIAL DEFECT ON MY PROPERTY THAT I PAID DEARLY FOR.

I WAITED TEN YEARS TO GET IN DOWN THERE.

I'M GOING TO HAVE NO PRIVACY. I'M GOING TO HAVE INCREASED CRIME. THERE IS NO FENCE THERE.

MY SON TONIGHT GOT HOME FROM SCHOOL AFTER DARK.

WHY? BECAUSE THERE WAS A TRAFFIC JAM AT THAT AREA. AT THE MAINSTREET AND THE BUSH.

>> YOU ARE OUT OF TIME. >> OK.

>> I'VE GOT A LOT MORE TO SAY ABOUT IS THIS THIS.

>> WE APPRECIATE IT. >> I'M MORE AFFECTED THAN

ANYBODY ELSE IN THIS ROOM. >> THANK YOU SIR.

I APPRECIATE YOU. >> NEXT SPEAKER IS A JIM DONE

LEAVE I HAVE. >> GOOD EVENING.

JUST WANT TO SAY TO SPEAK TO THAT ISSUE, ONE OF THE THINGS IS ON THAT SECTION OF MAINSTREET THERE IS NOTHING.

SO IT'S AN EMPTY AREA WHERE PEOPLE FEEL THEY COULD GET AWAY WITH TROUBLE. I THINK PUTTING IN HOMES MULTIFAMILY, PUTTING IN A PLACE THAT IS AFFORDABLE AND UP SCALE WILL ACTUALLY IMPROVE THE SECURITY IN THERE.

NOT ONLY ARE YOU PUTTING IN PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE IN THAT AREA. I ALSO THEY ARE NOT LOOKING TO

[01:00:01]

BUY HOMES. GOING DROP 21 MILLION HOMES ON THE MARKET IN THE NEXT TEN TO 15 YEARS.

YOU HAVE A BUNCH OF HOMES COMING AND GENERATION OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO BUY A HOME, THEY WANT TO RENT.

I THINK THIS PLAN GIVES US THE BEST FOR BOTH.

GIVES US A USE FOR THAT EMPTY SPOT IN THE CITY.

AND IT PROVIDES A RESOURCE FOR THIS NEW GENERATION COMING UP.

THAT'S IT. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU SIR. >> NEXT SPEAKER CARD I HAVE IS FOR A MR. GREG PEOPLES. I'M HERE TO ASK TO YOU VOTE 23409 IN FAVOR OF THIS AS A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL.

COUPLE OF THINGS I WANT TO POINT OUT.

>> NOW AFTER ALL THE OTHER THING IS THE PROPOSE DOES NOT CORRECT THE RARE. THE CURRENT ZONING IS NOT INDICATIVE OF THE MIXED USE. STAFF HAS NOT TO RESTREW TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS AND SO THEY CAN'T DETERMINE WHAT THE IMPACT ON THE TRAFFIC IS GOING TO BE. I'M TELLING IT'S GOING TO BE BAD. IT'S ON MAINSTREET OR PGBT.

IT'S GOING TO BE AT THE CHURCH AND NOT THE COMPLEX.

CARS COMING IN EVERY DAY. BAD.

NEED TO BE REVISED TO ANALYZE TRAFFIC IMPACTS.

WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO GO? HOW MUCH MORE TRAFFIC IS GOING TO BE DOWN THERE? THERE WILL BE REQUIRED WASTE WATER CAPACITY ANALYSIS. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH DOWN THERE.

BECAUSE THE SITE IS SO CLOSE TO THE LAKE.

DRAINAGE FOR THE MULTIUSE. CLOSED PLAN DEVELOPMENT SHOWS A HEIGHTENED PROLIFERATION OF MULTIFAMILY USES WHERE THERE SHOULD BE MIXED USE. YOU HAVE 790 APARTMENTS THAT ARE BEING BUILT HERE ON PGBT AND MAINSTREET.

>> I'M GOING ASK THE AUDIENCE TO KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOURSELF.

I'D APPRECIATE OUR COOPERATION. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

NEXT PERSON I HAVE IS A RACHEL BRITAIN.

RACHEL BRITAIN. >> MY NAME IS RACHEL BRITAIN AND I LIVE AT 1906 WESTMINSTER. THE COMMISSION CONSIDER.

THIS I'M A MEMBER AT FIRST BAPTIST ROWLETT.

IN MY TIME WILL I'VE SEEN THIS CHURCH IS AN INTRICATE PART OF THIS COMMUNITY AND GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.

I BELIEVE OUR CHURCH HAS ALWAYS LEFT ANY PLACE OR ANY ACTIVITY

[01:05:02]

WE'VE DONE BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT.

AND I WOULD ASK FOR TO YOU RESPECTFULLY CONSIDER THIS AND THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR CHURCH TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THERE.

AND FOR THESE APARTMENTS TO BE ABLE TO BE GUILT CONSIDERATION FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED THAT TYPE OF HOUSING CLOSE TO THAT LOCATION AND CLOSE IN PROXIMITY TO THE HIGH SCHOOL, THE RECREATION SENT AROUND THE PARK AND ALSO IN MINISTRY FOR OUR CHURCH TO THESE PEOPLE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU MA'AM. >> NEXT CARD IS MIKE BRITAIN.

>> MY NAME IS MIKE BRITAIN I LIVE AT 106 WESTMINSTER MANY ROWLETT. I'D LIKE TO ECHO WHAT MY WIFE SAID AND WHAT MY PASTOR SAID. WE HAVE A LONG HISTORY AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF BEING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE COMMUNITY.

WE HAVE A SAYING IN OUR CHARGE WE BELIEVE WE NEED TO GET OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF OUR CHURCH AND BE AN IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY. I'VE LIVED HERE A LITTLE OVER A YEAR. I MOVED FROM ALLENISM DON'T SEE A LOT OF WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER GOOD QUALITY MULTIFAMILY APARTMENTS HERE. PEOPLE A SINGLE MOM COULD GO TO OR A SENIOR CITIZEN WHO WANTS TO DOWN SIZE.

I THINK IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM.

I THINK ETC. A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US AND NOT JUST SELL THAT LAND FOR MULTIUSE BUT BE A WAY THIS WE CAN MINISTER TO THOSE FAMILIES THAT ARE GOING TO LIVE IN THAT COMMUNITY.

I THANK YOU. >> I'VE RUN OUT OF SPEAKER CARDS FOR HAD ITEM. IS THERE ANYONE IN THIS AUDIENCE THAT WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION ON THIS ITEM? IF SO, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. SEEING NONE, I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AT THIS TIME. COMMISSIONERS DISCUSSION ON THIS AGENDA ITEM. I WILL START AT THIS END.

>> I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THEIR CONCERNS.

I THINK THERE ARE SOME OTHER ISSUES THAT PEOPLE LIVENING TO LAKE NEED TO TALK TO THE CITY BECAUSE OF OTHER EXPANSIONS THAT ARE GOING ON DOWN THERE. THIS IS A DIFFICULT PIECE OF PROPERTY. AND TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT TYPE OF PEOPLE TO COME IN AND I THINK THERE IS GREAT FAITH IN HAVING THE CHURCH THERE, ESPECIALLY BEING ON THAT PROPERTY. I THINK THERE IS SOME GOOD IDEAS OF WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH THIS PROPERTY.

BUT THERE ARE SOME OTHER CONCERNS THAT NEED TO BE DEALT

WITH TOO IN THE FUTURE. >> I APPRECIATE EVERYBODY'S PRESENTATIONS. I PERSONALLY WHEN I REVIEWED THE PACKET FOR THE MEETING TONIGHT, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA FOR THAT PROPERTY. WHEN LOOKING AT IT, I HAVE A GOOD FEELING ABOUT IT. I'LL BE SUPPORTING IT.

>> I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THE CHURCH , THE CONCEPT , THE PLANS , THE VISION THAT HAS BEEN LAID OUT THE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

IT'S GREAT FOR THE COMMUNITY IN ROWLETT.

DEFINITELY HAVE NO CONCERN ON MY END WITH THAT PART OF IT.

AND AS WE KNOW ZONING IS ALLOWING ANY RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION TO GO IN ANY ZONING IS NOT THE CONCERN.

THAT'S THE CONCERN I'VE GOT IS TWO ISSUES AT HAND.

TWO PIECES OF PROPERTY. TWO DIFFERENT USES.

WE'VE GOT A LAND USE PLAN THAT DOES HELP DRIVE THE OVERALL VISION OF PLANNING AND ZONING THE CITY, THE DIRECTION THAT WE WANT TO GO. WE'VE GOT AND I TAKE THAT'S WHERE -- I'VE WENT BACK AND FORTH.

I THINK THE OVERALL THE CONCEPT IF IT WAS JUST THIS AS ISOLATED AS OPPOSED TO LOOK AGO @ BIG PICTURE OF THE COMMUNITY WHERE WE'VE GOT THE APARTMENTS THAT IS ACROSS FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL ON THE WEST SIDE. APARTMENTS AND TOWN HOMES THAT IS POPPING UP THROUGHOUT DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CITY THAT WE'VE APPROVED. AT SOME POINT IN THE PAST WHETHER IT BE CITY COUNCIL OR PLANNING AND ZONING, IT'S THE APARTMENTS THAT IS REALLY THE TOPIC OF THE COMMUNITY AND THE C3 REMAIN C3 COMMERCIAL ON THE PGB SIDE THERE.

AND THEN JUST MOVING THE CHURCH PLAN A LITTLE BIT FURTHER BACK.

[01:10:04]

THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE EASIER TO GO OVER.

THE MULL FY FAMILY RIGHT NOW IS REALLY A HOT ISSUE WITHIN THE CITY. THAT'S THE PIECE THAT ALONE RIGHT THERE THAT I CAN'T SUPPORT.

>> WHEN I REVIEWED THE PLAN I THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY NICE LAYOUT. AND ACTUALLY KIND OF A LITTLE BIT OUT OF THE BOX. I'LL BE SUPPORTING IT.

>> I'D LIKE TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR ATTENDING TO NIGHT THAT IS HERE ON THIS ISSUE. IT'S A TOUGH ONE BECAUSE I THINK THAT WE ALL RECOGNIZE THAT THE CHURCH HERE IF OUR CITY IS A BIG PLAYER AND AFFECTS MANY CITIZENS.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE TO DO ON THIS PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION IS TO WE REPRESENT NOT JUST THE CHURCH MEMBERS, WE REPRESENT EVERY CITIZEN OF THE CITY OF ROWLETT WHETHER THEY ARE HERE TONIGHT OR AT HOME WATCHING US ON TV RIGHT NOW OR WHETHER THEY ARE GOING TO READ THIS IN THE NEWSPAPER.

THE WAY THE PLAN WAS SUBMITTED. THE PLAN DEVELOPMENT WAS SUBMITTED. I HAVE NO PROBLEM AT ALL WITH THAT. I THINK IT'S A BEAUTIFUL CHURCH.

I THINK THAT'S FINEFUL I HAVE NO PROBLEM AT ALL.

I KNOW THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN SAYS MIXED USE.

I KNOW IT SAYS GO TO URBAN VILLAGISM LOOK AT THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND SAW A LOT OF APARTMENTS WITH LITTLE MIXED USE IN THAT TRACT. I KNOW IT WAS THE ENTIRE TRACT GOES YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A SECTION THAT IS CHURCH AND A SECTION THAT IS RESIDENTIAL. BUT I THINK THAT IS FORM BASE CODE URBAN VILLAGE CONCEPT REALLY SHOULD CONTAIN MORE OF A COMMERCIAL ASPECT OF IT THAN STRICTLY RESIDENTIAL WITH ONE MAYBE ONE FLOOR OF ONE BUILDING WITH SOME COMMERCIAL ASPECTS.

I THINK WE HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHAT GOES ON IN THAT PIECE OF PROPERTY DOWN BY THE RECREATION CENTER.

THAT'S ALL DESIGNATED IN OUR FUTURE LAND USE PROGRAM HAVING MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTIAL ON THAT PROPERTY IS A MISTAKE.

I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING THIS. I'M SORRY TO UPSET THEME ARE HERE TONIGHT AND MENS OF THE CONGREGATION.

I HAVE TO VOTE MY CONSCIOUS AND MY CONSCIOUS SAYS THAT I WISH THERE COULD BE ANOTHER -- THAT POSSIBLY COME BACK AT US WITH A DIFFERENT SORT OF PLAN WITH MAYBE SOME OFFICES OR SOMETHING IF YOU CAN DO THAT. I THINK IT WOULD BE MUCH MORE SUITABLE THAN MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTIAL ON THAT STREET.

THEREFORE I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING.

I THINK WE'VE HAD A CHANCE TO SAY OUR SAY AND I'M READY FOR A MOTION. WE HAVE A MOTION.

>> MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE -- DISTRICT USE WITH THE EXCEPTION THE ONLY EXCEPTION OR EXCLUSION HERE IS ANY RELIEF ON THE MONUMENT SIGNS.

>> RELIEF ON THE MONUMENT SIGNS. >> AS REQUESTED BY STAFF IS THAT

CORRECT? >> YES.

>> DO I HAVE ASECOND ON THE MOTION?

>> I'LL SECOND. >> WE HAVE A SECOND.

>> ANY DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION? >> I'M SORRY, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A VOTE AT THIS TIME SIR. WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A VOTE AT THIS TIME. ANYMORE DISCUSSION ON THIS ISSUE? LET'S TAKE THE VOTE.

AND THIS ITEM DOES NOT PASS. ITEM 5C.

[5C. Conduct a public hearing and make a recommendation to City Council on a request by Rhodes Surveying, on behalf of property owner Ross Mussina, for a Special Use Permit (SUP) to allow an accessory structure exceeding 500 square feet on property zoned Single Family Residential (SF-40) District. The 4.1-acre site is located approximately 129 feet north of Bellaire Lane and on the northside of Chiesa Road, in the City of Rowlett, Dallas County, Texas.]

CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL ON THE REQUEST BY ROAD SURVEYING ON BEHALF OF PROPERTY OWNER ROSS FOR A SPECIAL USE PERMIT TO ALLOW AN ACCESSORY STRUCTURE EXCEEDING 500 SQUARE FEET ON PROPERTY ZONED SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL SF40. 4.1-ACRE SITE IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY IS 29 FEET NORTH OF BEL AIR LANE AND ON THE NORTH SIDE OF CHEESE ROAD AND THE CITY OF ROWLETT DALLAS COUNTY, TEXAS.

[01:15:07]

>> THIS IS A REQUEST FOR A SPECIAL USE PERMIT TO TO CONSTRUCT A 2931 SQUARE FOOT ACCESSORY BUILDING ON PROPERTY ZONED SF40. THIS PROPERTY IS SF40 WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE 40,000 SQUARE FEET.

BUT IT IS MORE THAN 40,000 SQUARE FEET.

IT IS 180 SQUARE FEET WHICH IS 4.1 ACRES.

IT IS PART IN THE FUTURE LAND USE IT IS PART OF THE ESTATE WHICH DOES ACCOMMODATE LARGER LOT SIZES AND PREVIOUSLY USED TO BE FOR RURAL AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT.

SO WITH THIS CODE , THE SOCIAL USE PERMIT DOES REQUIRE THAT YOU IF YOU WANT TO EXCEED 500 SQUARE FEET FOR ACCESSORY STRUCTURE YOU NEED ACQUIRE A SPECIAL USE PERMIT.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THE STRUCTURE DOES EXCEED THE 500 SQUARE FEET. THE PROPERTY HAS A MAIN STRUCTURE ON IT THAT IS 2694 WATER FEET AND IT HAS TWO OTHER EXISTING STRUCTURES OINT. ONE IS 13470 AND ANOTHER 68 SQUARE FEET. THE SITE IS ENCLOSED BY A 5.5-FOOT FENCE WIRE FENCE ALONG THE PERIMETER.

AND IT ALSO DOES HAVE A ROW OF TREE AS LONG THE SOUTHERN PERIMETER. ACCESS TO THE SITE CAN BE ACHIEVED FROM CHEESIER ROAD AND THE PROPERTY IS SURROUNDED BY SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ELEMENTARY TO THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO CONSTRUCT A 2931 SQUARE FEET METAL ACCESSORY STRUCTURE.

THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE WILL BE 17 FEET.

THE STRUCTURE IS PROPOSED TO BE IN THE REAR 653 FEET FROM

CHEESIER ROAD. >> THE STRIKURE WITH THE ELEVATIONS. IF YOU LOOK AT THE DIAGRAM TO MY RIGHT. IT IS SHOWN THERE IS EXISTING FENCE IN THE BLUE. AND THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE IS SHOWN TO THE REAR IN THE RED. THERE IS FENCING ALONG THE PROPERTY. AND ALSO THE 3,559 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING THAT EXIST TODAY THAT IS THERE.

SO NOTICES WERE SENT OUT ON DECEMBER 3.

RECEIVE FOUR HAD OPPOSITION IN THE 200 FEET AREA AND ONE IN FAVOR IN THE 200 FEET AREA. NONE WERE RECEIVED IN THE 500 FEET COURTESY AREA. STAFF DOES RECOMMEND APPROVAL FOR THIS REQUEST BECAUSE IT WILL NOT COMPROMISE THE INTENT OF THE SINGLE FAMILY SF40 DISTRICT OR STATE RESIDENTIAL DESIGNATION BECAUSE THE INCREASED SQUARE FOOTAGE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE RURAL LAND USE PATTERN. THIS COMPLETES MY PRESENTATION AND STAFF IS AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF AT THIS TIME?

IS THE APPLICANT HERE TONIGHT? >> DOES APPLICANT HAVE A

PRESENTATION? >> HE DOES NOT HAVE A

PRESENTATION. >> MAYBE THE APPLICANT CAN

INTRODUCE THEMSELVES. >> MY NAME IS ROSS AND I RESIDE AT 8306 CHEESIER ROAD ROWLETT. THE REASON FOR THE STRUCTURE I'M A CLASSIC CAR GUY. I HAVE A COLLECTION OF VINTAGE CARS. EXISTING STRUCTURE TODAY DOESN'T HOUSE THEM ALL. MY PROPERTY BACKS UP TO FRONTIER SUBSTATION, A CHURCH AND KEELY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SO THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING BEHIND ME. A ROW OF TREES ON THE SOUTH SIDE. MY NEIGHBOR HAS A METAL

[01:20:08]

STRUCTURE. I'M KEEPING IT IN THE SAME PROFILE. YOU CAN'T SEE THE SHOP FROM THE ROAD WHICH IS THE MAIN TRAFFIC AVENUE.

THE BUILDING IS BEHIND THE HOUSE.

THE OTHER BUILDING FOLLOWS THE SAME PROFILE AS THE EXISTING BUILDING. I'M JUST PREPARING FOR

RETIREMENT ENJOYING MY HOBBY. >> QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT?

AND I KEEP THEM ALL IN MY GARAGE.

>> YOU HAVE TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION.

I KEEP THEM ALL IN MY GARAGE. BASICALLY MY QUESTION IS ARE YOU GOING TO BUILD CARS AS WAS STATED EARLIER AND SELL THEM? IS THIS GOING TO BECOME COMMERCIAL EVENTUALLY?

THAT'S YOU WILL I HAVE. >> THANK YOU SIR.

>> NEXT SPEAKER CARD I HAVE IS PATRICK TURNER.

I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION IT WOULD BAY COMMERCIAL STORAGE FACILITY THAT WOULD ALSO INCREASE THE TRAFFIC.

DON'T HAVE ANYBODY THAT IS INVESTED IN THAT AREA IN OUR COMMUNITY. AND I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE PROPERTY VALUE BECAUSE OF THE DEVELOPS THAT ARE THERE , THE WATER VIEW. THE LAKE , THE HOMESTEAD.

THEY HAVE DEVELOPED THE QUALITY OF STANDARD OF LIVING THERE.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VALUE DOES NOT BE DEVALUED FOR PERSONAL USE WITH THE BUILDING STRUCTURE.

BECAUSE THE AESTHETICS IS WHAT BRINGS PEOPLE TO THE COMMUNITY.

JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE. THAT AND I HAVE THE CONCERN ON WHAT DOES THIS PROJECT OR THIS PERSONAL LIFESTYLE ENTAIL GOING FORWARD. HOW MANY CARS? THERE IS TRAFFIC, THAT COULD MEAN TRAFFIC AS FAR AS BRINGING THE CARS IN. THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

AS YOU'VE HEARD FROM THE CONCERN OF YOUR NEIGHBORS, CAN YOU REITERATE, THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE COMMERCIAL, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE RESTORING CARS FOR PROFIT. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE CURBSTONING CARS IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE FOR STEEL TURN IT INTO COMMERCIAL. WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADDRESS THAT?

>> SURE. I CURRENTLY OWN MY OWN BUSINESS.

IT'S NOT CAR RELATED. I'M IN THE FOOD RESTAURANT

[01:25:01]

INDUSTRY AND I DO OUT SOURCE PURCHASING.

I'VE BEEN ON TWO CROSS COUNTRY HOT ROD POWER TOURS.

I'VE BEEN DO I LOTS OF THINGS WITH CARS.

ALL MY FRIENDS CAR BUDS. I HAVE CARS IN STORAGE TODAY.

THIS REQUEST THEY ARE REQUESTING TO REDUCE THE MINIMUM OF 60% WILL BE ALONG LIBERTY GROVE SO THAT WILL BE THEIR FRONT FACADE. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO REDUCE IT TO 24% ALONG THE SOUTH AND EAST ELEVATIONS AGAIN WHICH IS LIBERTY GROVE WHICH AND IN THE SITES INTERNAL ACCESS EASEMENT AS WELL. AS YOU CAN SEE THE SHOWS TWO FACADES THAT WILL BE REQUESTED FOR THE REDUCTION FROM 60% AND ONLY HAVE 24% WINDOW TRANSPARENCY.

SO THE SECOND MAJOR WARRANT REQUEST THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE IS THAT THE APPLICANT WOULD REQUIRE FROM 2.8.6.2 OF THE FBC WOULD ASK FOR ELEVATIONS THAT ARE NOT FRONTING THE PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY BE REDUCE TO 10%. BUT THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT IS 30%. THEY CAN HAVE A MAXIMUM UP TO 70% OF THE WINDOW REQUIREMENT BUT THEY ARE REQUESTING 10%.

SO THE APPLICANTS JUSTIFICATION FOR THESE REQUESTS IS THAT THIS WILL ALLOW TO PROTECT THE SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF THE PETS AND ALSO THE LOWER TRANSPARENCY WILL RESULT IN LESS ENERGY CONSUMPTION AS WELL. THE INTENT OF THE WINDOW TRANSPARENCY IS TO ACTIVATE. FROM 30 PERSONS TO 10% ON NON-FRONT FACADE STAGE SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION FROM THE ARCHITECTURE STANDARDS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE APPLICANT CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING.

THAT THEY INCREASE THE TRANSPARENT ON THE SOUTH AND EAST FACADE FRONTING THE PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY TO 40% AND INCREASE THE 20% ON THE NORTH AND WEST ELEVATIONS.

AS YOU CAN LOOK THERE IS PICTURES THAT PROVIDE WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE IF THEY WERE MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE FBC OF THE TWO REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CODE.

THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH THIS IS UNDER REVIEW AND SO PENDING THESE MAJOR WARRANTS, THEY WOULD EITHER HAVE TO BE APPROVED FOR THIS CONDITION TO BE PROVIDED WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN OR APPROVED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN.

FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF THE MAJOR WARRANT DESCRIBED IN FBC WHICH STATES THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION MAY MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO APPROVE A MAJOR WARRANT IF THE APPLICATION MEETS THE GENERAL INTENT OF THE CHAPTER ARTICLE 1.2 AND THE FBC IN WHICH THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED WILL RESULT IN IMPROVED PROJECT WHICH WILL BE ATTRACTED CONTRIBUTION TO THE FB DISTRICT AND WILL NOT PREVENT. 200-FOOT AREA.

[01:35:13]

RESPONSES IN THE 500 FEET NOTICE.

IN FAVOR FOR ZERO AS WELL. STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS TO CONSIDER THAT THE APPLICANT PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING.

THIS COMPLETES STAFF'S PRESENTATION.

AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I'M AVAILABLE TO ANSWER.

>> QUESTIONS FOR 1256 AT THIS TIME.

IS THE APPLICANT HERE TONIGHT. DOES APPLICANT HAVE A

PRESENTATION TO MAKE 1234. >> YES.

>> WOULD WE LIKE TO WAIT ON QUESTIONS UNTIL AFTER THE APPLICANT. THANK YOU.

IF THE APPLICANT COULD COME FORWARD AND STATE YOUR NAME AND

DRESS. >> CHARLES.

REPRESENTING MONK ENGINEERING AND ALSO PATTY AND NIKKI FOR THEIR REQUEST THIS EVENING. THE PURPOSE OF THE FACILITY THAT WE HAVE IS THE FIRST CLASS KENNEL AS THE BACKDROP TO THE OPEN SPACE THAT WE HAVE THERE. ENERGY EFFICIENT AND MEET THE FORM BASE CODE BECAUSE IT IS ALLOWABLE USE.

THE SITE OVERVIEW THAT WE HAVE, SOME OF THITE HAPPENS AFFECT DESIGN OF THIS FACILITY , THE SITE PLAN WHAT YOU SEE TONIGHT IS COMPILATION OF THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT AND OURSELVES COMING ONE A SOLUTION THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE A SOLUTION BEFORE THAT PARTICULAR THING. WHEN WE GOT BACK TOGETHER.

BECAUSE WE ARE DEALING WITH THE BUILD TO ZONE AND THINGS LIKE THAT. THE SITE PLAN HERE SOME OF THE MAJOR CONSTRAINTS WE'RE WORKING WITH IS THAT THE MASTER PLAN DICTATED THAT WE DECIDE THIS LOT INTO TWO.

THIS IS WHERE THE THOROUGH FARE PLAN WOULD COME THROUGH AND THAT WAS APPROVED BY ENGINEERING. ANOTHER IS WE HAD A 15-FOOT UTILITY EASEMENT ALONG LIBERTY GROVE THAT MOVED OUR BUILDING BACK FURTHER. AND ALSO WE HAVE THE 15-FOOT RIGHT OF WAY ON LIBERTY GROVE. THE BUILDING IS MOVING BACK OUT OF THAT BUILD TO ZONE. WE QUITE FRANKLY WERE AT A STOP NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH IT. DANIEL AND THEIR STAFF CAME ONE RECOMMENDATIONS HOW TO DO THIS WITH THE OPEN SPACE IN FRONT OF IT AND EVERYTHING. THE MAJOR WARRANTS HERE.

THE 60% TRANSPARENCY FROM OUR STANDPOINT, THE HEADING HERE UNDER NUMBER TWO IS FOR NONRESIDENTIAL USE AS JANE TIE SIDEWALK AT GRADE. AND THEREFORE THE 60% CRITERIA.

OUR BUILDING IS NOT A RETAIL SPACE SO WE'RE NOT TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO SEE INSIDE OUR BUILDING.

ALONG THIS AREA ABOUT 50% OF THAT FACADE IS THE KENNEL AREA WHERE THE DOGS ARE AND EVERYTHING.

WE'RE ADJACENT. WE'RE NOT ADJACENT TIE SIDEWALK.

WE'RE ADJACENT TO AN OPEN SPACE. AND WE THINK THIS TRANSPARENCY REQUIREMENT SHOULD NOT BE APPLICABLE ON THIS PARTICULAR FACADE. THE SECOND ITEM HERE ON PAGE 73 IS A 30% TRANSPARENCY ON ALL ELEVATIONS.

LIBERTY GROVE WE HAD 24%. WE DON'T MIND BRINGING THAT UP TO 30% IF WE HAVE TO. IT'S JUST THE 60% DOES NOT WORK WITH THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE BUILDING.

THE SOUTH ELEVATION IS ALREADY AT 30%.

THE OTHER TWO ELEVATIONS, THE WEST ELEVATION 11% AND 10% FOR THE NORTH ELEVATION MAINLY BECAUSE OF OUR KENNEL AREAS ARE IN THAT AREA. WE WILL GO WITH THE RECOMMENDATION THAT CAN GO UP TO 20%.

THAT DOESN'T AFFECT US TOO MUCH FROM AN ENERGY STANDPOINT.

BECAUSE THE ENERGY STANDPOINT ON KENNEL LIKE THIS IS VERY HIGH FROM A MECHANICAL STANDPOINT. 9 /10 OF THE SQUARE FEET OF THAT KENNEL AREA HAS TO BE EXHAUSTED AND WE CIRCULATED AND EVERYTHING. THERE IS A LOT OF ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND WE'RE TRYING TO CUT BACK ON THAT WITH THE GLASS AND TRANSPARENCY AND EVERYTHING. AND SUMMARY, WHAT WE FOUND OUT IN DEALING WITH THE FORM BASE CODE FOR FOUR YEARS NOW IS THAT THIS FORM BASE CODE LUMPSS INTO A LUMPS SINGLE USE BUILDINGS INTO A CATEGORY OF FLEX SPACE AT GRADE.

THEREFORE WE HAVE THIS DILEMMA OF CONFORMING TO WHAT I THINK IS A RETAIL REQUIREMENT OF 60% TO 70%.

IT DOESN'T TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE INDIVIDUAL

[01:40:02]

BUILDINGS WHICH ARE ALLOWED IN THIS USE AND EVERYTHING.

A THEATER, MORTUARY, MUSEUM, KENNELS.

IT WOULD BE DO I HAVE HAVE A 60% TRANSPARENCY.

MOST OF THE FARM BASE CODE I'M FAMILIAR WITH IS THAT IF IT'S ON THE FIRST STORY, OTHER THAN RETAIL THEY USUALLY ALLOW A 30% TRANSPARENCY. AND THAT'S WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO SHOOT FOR. WE COULD EXPECT -- EXPECTED ACCEPT THE 30% TRANSPARENCY AND WE AGREE THE 20% ON THE BACK ON THE WEST AND NORTH ELEVATION. WERTHER ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE AND WE'RE THANKFUL FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

>> THANK YOU SIR. >> COMMISSIONERS IN QUESTIONS

FOR THE DEVELOPER. >> CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE DESIGN OF THE BUILDING? DOES IT SHOW THE NUMBER OF WINDOWS ON THERE? DOES THAT DESIGN WITH WHAT THEY

ARE PROPOSING ONLY 24%? >> FOR THE SOUTH ELEVATION IT WOULD BE 24%. AND THEN FOR THE --

>> SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT ON THIS DESIGN HERE IS AT THANKSGIVING WHAT THEY ARE PROPOSING OR WHAT YOU ARE

TELLING THEM SPARTANBURG. >> THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE

PROPOSING. >> ON THAT.

>> IF I CAN INTERJECT PLEASE. WHY DON'T WE GO THROUGH EACH ELEVATION. LET'S START WITH WHAT IS PROPOSED AS THE FRONT ELEVATION RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE TWO FRONT ELEVATIONS. LET'S WALK THE COMMISSION AND VIEWING AUDIENCE THROUGH EACH ELEVATION AND EXPLAIN AND TRY AND ALSO IF WE CAN EXPLAIN THE FLOOR PLAN AS WE WALK THROUGH THOSE ELEVATIONS AND THAT MIGHT SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING AND WHAT STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS.

>> DO YOU HAVE ELEVATIONS OF WHAT THE STAFF IS PROPOSING?

>> NO. >> THE ONLY DRAWINGS ARE WHAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING. THESE FOUR DRAWINGS ARE WHAT THEY ARE REQUESTING RELIEF ON THESE MAJOR WARRANTS FOR.

>> CAN WE START WITH THIS ONE FIRST?

>> YES. >> YOU ARE SAYING YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO INCLUDE TWO MORE WINDOWS OR THREE?

>> LET ME SEE IF I CAN USE THIS POINTER HERE.

ARE ALL THE OTHER DOG KENNEL KEN COMPLIANCE WITH TRANSPARENCY AND

WINDOWS. >> THIS IS FORM BASE CODE.

>> I'LL SPEAK THE THAT AS WELL. LET'S START ON THE ELEVATIONS BEFORE YOU. THE ELEVATION ON THE SOUTH HAS THE MOST AMOUNT OF TRANSPARENCY. WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE S THE PRIMARY ENTRY TO THE BUILDING.

THEY HAVE THE ENTRY LOBBY HERE IN THE FOYER WHICH THEY WERE PROVIDING MORE TRANSPARENCY THERE.

THE AREA TO THE RIGHT IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN IS ANOTHER SERVICE TYPE AREA AS WELL AS TO THE LEFT. STAFF FEELS THESE TWO AREAS CAN INCREASE IN TRANSPARENCY ADJACENT TO THE ENTRY WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE FLOOR PLAN OF THE BUILDING F. YOU LOOK AT THE EAST ELEVATION WHICH IS HERE ON TOP.

BOTH OF THESE ELEVATIONS EITHER FRONT ON A ROADWAY I FUTURE ROADWAY OR OPEN SPACE. WHICH HAVE THAT 60% REQUIREMENT.

THE FACADE YOU SEE BEFORE YOU HERE ON THE TOP HAS KENNELS ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE AND THAT'S WHY THE WINDOWS ARE UP SO HIGH.

THEN ALSO KIND OF HAVE THAT PREP AREA AND THAT LOBBY AREA ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE. AGAIN STAFF FEELS THIS NUMBER CAN BE INCREASED WITHIN REASON ON THOSE.

THOSE ARE BOTH 60% REQUIREMENT. NOW WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE ZONING OF COMMERCIAL CENTER AND I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT FOR THIS DISCUSSION, THERE ARE MULTIPLE USES ALLOWED WITHIN THE COMMERCIAL CENTER DISTRICT WHICH INCLUDE A KENNEL USE WITH INDOOR AMENITIES AND IN THIS CASE YOU HAVE WHAT IS BASICALLY A STAND ALONE BUILDING. THE FORM BASE CODE WHEN YOU LOOK AT ALL THE IMAGERY OF THE FORM BASE CODE.

I'M GOING TO SEE IF I CAN GET TO SOME EVER THAT WE PROVIDED FOR YOU. WHEN YOU LOOK AT IMAGERY USED IN FORM BASE CODE, IT'S INTENDED TO BE A DISTRICT WHERE BUILDS ARE GROUPED TOGETHER IN MULTIPLE GROUPINGS.

YOU WON'T ALWAYS HAVE FREE STANDING BUILDINGS THAT HAVE THIS HIGH TRANSPARENCY ON ALL FACADES.

WITH A KENNEL AS AN EXAMPLE TO HAVE A HIGH TRANSPARENCY IS

[01:45:02]

DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE. WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AGAIN OUR RECOMMENDATION ISN'T TO COME UP TO THAT 60% BUT TO INCREASE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. TO COME UP TO THE MINIMUM 60%.

IT IS TO COME UP AN ADDITIONAL 20% TO 40%.

ON THESE TWO FACADES. AGAIN THOSE ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF THE PUBLIC FACING GROUND FLOOR AND IT IS EXACTLY AS THE GENTLEMAN SAID AT THE GROUND FLOOR THIS IS CONSIDERED FLEX SPACE AT GRADE. FLEX SPACE AT GRADE DOES REQUIRE

THOSE TRANSPARENCIES. >> SOUTH IS 24%.

>> ARE YOU ONE OF THE APPLICANTS?

>> YES. >> SHE CAN COME UP AND IDENTIFY

HERSELF. >> AND THE WAY THE WARRANT IS WRITTEN JUST FOR INFORMATION, WE DON'T HAVE ON THIS PRESENTATION.

WE DON'T HAVE EACH INDIVIDUAL BROKEN DOWN.

IT'S WRITTEN REQUESTING THE MINIMUM AMOUNT.

24 WOULD BE THE MINIMUM AMOUNT IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK IT TO.

>> IF YOU WANT TO STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

IT'S GOT TO BE ABLE TO HELP THE INSIDE OF YOUR BUILDING WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT IN THE BEGINNING OF KEEPING CLEAN AIR

AND ALL OF THAT. >> IS THAT A QUESTION.

>> THAT'S A COMMENT I GUESS. I'M SAYING WITH --

>> YOU NEED TO COULD YOU COME UP TO THE MICROPHONE.

THIS IS GOING OUT ON TV AND EVERYTHING.

>> NORTH ELEVATION. IF YOU CAN GO BACK ONE PLEASE.

THANK YOU. THE TOP ELEVATION IS THE LIBERTY GROVE ON THE RIGHT. ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE OF THAT LOOKING AT THE SLIDE FROM MY VIEW THE GROOMING AREA THAT COMES OVER AND WE HAVE ANOTHER HIGH ELEMENT THAT HAS HIGH WINDOWS AND THAT HAS KENNELS BELOW IT.

THE NEXT ELEMENT IS SECONDARY ENTRANCE.

THE RIGHT SIDE WITH SIX DIFFERENT STYLE WINDOWS IS THE KENNEL AREA. THAT'S WHY IT'S UP SO HIGH.

ON THE BOTTOM SOUTH ELEVATION, THAT WILL BE DIVIDED INTO THE VERTICAL REQUIREMENTS, THAT'S AN OFFICE AREA.

THE DOOR THAT IS SITING THERE IS EXPOSED AS SPRINKLER SYSTEM DOOR. THE STORE FRONT AREA IS THE ENTRANCE DOOR OF THE FOYER. THE RECEPTION AREA , THE WAITING AREA AND THE RIGHT OF THAT IS THE GROOMING AREA ON THE CORNER THERE. IT'S GOT TWO WINDOWS ON THIS SIDE. WE COULD INCREASE ON THOSE.

I DON'T SEE ANY PROBLEM INCREASING THOSE AREAS TO HELP COME UP TO THAT 34 34040%. ON THE TOP ONE IS THE NORTH ELEVATION AND THAT'S ALL KENNEL BACK THERE.

THAT'S ALL KENNEL AREA. I DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM INCREASING THAT FROM THE IF 10% TO 20% RECOMMENDATION.

THAT ALSO WITH THE WEST ELEVATION.

THAT'S A KENNEL ON THE LEFT SIDE AND EXIT AND TWO OFFICES AND TRAINING AREA. AND WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BOOSTING THAT UP TO 20%. I'M GOING TO STRUGGLING WITH THE 40%. BUT WE'LL TRY TO ACCOMMODATE THAT. IT'S A BALANCE BETWEEN THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE BUILDING AND WHAT WE ARE REQUIRED.

>> THANK YOU SIR. >> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

>> ON THE WEST AND THE NORTH ELEVATIONS, CURRENTLY AT 20.

THEY ARE UNDER 20. >> THEY ARE AT 11 AND 10.

AND YOU ARE SAYING 20. >> YES.

>> AND WE AGREE WITH THAT. >> AND THEN ON THE SOUTH AND EAST ELEVATIONS THEY ARE CURRENTLY AT 30% FOR THE SOUTH AND 24% FOR THE EAST AND DANIEL YOU THINK 40%.

>> AND YOU ARE SAYING 30 RIGHT? >> I WOULD LIKE 30% ON THAT LIBERTY GROVE. I CAN BOOST IT UP FROM THE 24% TO MAYBE 35% WITHOUT ENCROACHENING TO KENNEL AREA TOO

[01:50:03]

MUCH. I'M TRYING TO GET UP THERE.

40% ON THIS SOUTH ELEVATION IS NO PROBLEM.

WE CAN MAKE THAT. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> I PERSONALLY THIS IS MY OPINION BUT I THINK THE NORTH ELEVATION JUST LOOKS WEIRD. I THINK IT WILL LOOK BETTER.

>> IT WILL LOOK BETTER WITH MORE WINDOWS.

>> I AGREE. >> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF OR THE

DEVELOPER? >> PROBABLY JUST TO CLARIFY MY PERSPECTIVE ON THIS. WE HAVE TWO PHASES , THIS IS PROBABLY MORE TO STAFF PHASE TWO IS THAT CORRECT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. JUST SO I UNDERSTAND THAT, IF WE WHATEVER TRANSPARENCY PERCENTAGE WE COME UP WITH WE LOOK AT ON PHASE ONE, WILL THAT ALSO AUTOMATICALLY APPLY TO PHASE

TWO? >> NO, THIS IS SPECIFIC TO THIS

BUILDING. >> QUESTIONS FOR STAFF OR THE

DEVELOPER? >> THANK YOU.

>> I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING EITHER. >> AT THIS TIME WE WILL GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

IF ANYBODY WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION ON THIS ITEM PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AND I WILL RECOGNIZE YOU. SEEING NONE I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AT THIS TIME. DISCUSSION, COMMISSIONERS I'LL

START WITH MR. SWIFT. >>

. >> EFFICIENCY OF WINDOWS NOWADAYS AND SCREENING YOU DO IN ORDER TO PREVENT ENTERING THE BUILDING FROM THERE. I'M NOT SURE ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS THAT BIG OF AN ISSUE WHEN IT COMES TO WINDOWS.

I'M A LITTLE HARD PRESSED ON APPROVING THE REQUEST FOR THE

WARRANT AS IT IS WRITTEN NOW. >> DISCUSSION?

>> IF THE DEVELOPER IS WILLING TO MEET SOME OF THE INCREASES IN THE CHANGES, I'M IN FAVOR OF GOING IN THAT DIRECTION.

AS IT WOULD STAND RIGHT NOW, NO I WOULD SAY NO.

BUT IF WE WERE TO MAKE SOME CHANGES, YES.

>> DISCUSSION? >> I'M NOT AN EXPERT ON KENNELS AND I'M NOT -- WE HAVE FORM BASE CODE IN OUR CITY AND GENERALLY WHEN IT COMES TO NEIGHBORHOODS AND LARGER PROJECTS, IT'S A LOT I THINK IT'S A LOT MORE OF AN URGENT PROBLEM THAN IF IT'S A ONE FACILITY ON A STAND ALONE SORT OF ISLAND.

I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THAT PROJECT IS GOING TO BE.

I DON'T REALLY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH -- I THINK THAT THE DEVELOPER HAS INDICATED THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO COMPROMISE FROM THE PUBLIC FRONTING FACADES TO FROM 30 FORCE 20% AND FROM THE REQUIRED WINDOW TRANSPARENCY FROM 6030 INSTEAD OF 24.

THAT ISLESS THAN WHAT THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING.

BUT TO ENFORCE SOMETHING WITH JUST A COUPLE OF LITTLE DEGREES OF WINDOW SIZE ON A STAND ALONE FACILITY, NOT A NEIGHBORHOOD OR NOT A BIG DEVELOPMENT, I THINK THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR IS TO CREATE RELIEF ON SOMETIMES. AND I THINK THAT THE COMPROMISE THAT THE DEVELOPER RECOMMENDED OF THE REDUCE THE MINIMUM WINDOW REQUIRED TRANSPARENCY FROM 6030 INSTEAD OF 24 ON THE PUBLIC FRONTING FACADES, HE SAID, I THINK HE SAID 30.

>> STAFF IS RECOMMENDING -- THEY ARE 24.

HE'S RECOMMENDING 24%. >> ONE IS 24, ONE IS 30.

>> AND THEN THE 30% TO 10% , THE DEVELOPER HAS RECOMMENDED THE STAFF RECOMMENDED 20 AND THAT IS WHAT THE DEVELOPER SAID HE'D BE WILLING TO MEET. I THINK A COMPROMISE ON THIS CAN BE REACHED. IF SOMEBODY WOULD LIKE THE.

I WOULD BE SUPPORT OF A COMPROMISE ON THIS THAT THE

[01:55:02]

DEVELOPER PROPOSED. RATHER THAN THE STRICT COMPROMISE THAT THE STAFF PROPOSED.

I WOULD BE MORE SUPPORTIVE OF THAT.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE TO MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS SORT OF?

>> OK. I THINK THAT AS -- MS.EST SAYS HAS TAKEN GREAT NOTES ON. THIS I THINK SHE CAN MAKE A MOTION THAT MIGHT ENCAPSULATE ALL OF OUR CONCERNS.

AT THIS TIME I'M READY FOR A MOTION.

THE CHAIR RECOGNIZES MRS. ESSIVES.

>> I WILL MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM 5D ON THE AGENDA BASED ON THE FOLLOWING, ON THE SOUTH AND EAST ELEVATIONS OF THE BUILDING THERE WILL BE A 40% TRANSPARENCY.

AND ON THE WEST AND NORTH ELEVATIONS OF THE BUILDING THERE WILL BE INCREASED TO 20% TRANSPARENCY.

>> OK. DO I HAVE A SECOND? WE HAVE A SECOND. ANY DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION? TAKE THE VOTE. THAT ITEM CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY.

MOVING ON. ITEM 5E.

[5E. Conduct a public hearing and make a recommendation to City Council regarding a request by Skorburg Company, on behalf of property owners Leslie and Tommy Kearney, for a Major Warrant to Appendix 2.1 of the Form-Based Code to eliminate the required 20-foot garage offset from the front building line and allow for garages to be aligned with the front of the home. The 33-acre site is located along Castle Drive, between Miles Road and Merritt Road, in the City of Rowlett, Dallas County, Texas.]

CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL REGARDING A REQUEST BY SCORE BURN COMPANY ON BEHALF OF THE PROPERTY OWNERSLESS SI AND TOMMIE CURNY FOR A MAJOR WARRANT TO APPENDIX 2.1 TO THE FORM BASE CODE THE ELIMINATE 20-FOOT GARAGE OFFSET FROM THE FRONT BUILDING LINE TO ALLOW GARAGES TO BE ALIGNED WITH THE FRONT OF THE HOME.

THE 33-ACRE SITE IS LOCATED BETWEEN MILES ROAD AND MERIT ROAD IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT DALLAS COUNTY, TEXAS.

DANIEL OR CARLOS. >> CHAIRMAN, COMMISSIONERS, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. AS YOU ELOQUENTLY STATED WE'RE HERE TO DISCUSS A MAJOR WARRANT REQUEST TO ELIMINATE THE 20-FOOT GARAGE OFFSET FROM THE FRONT BUILDING LINE AND ALLOW FOR GARAGES TO BE ALIGNED WITH THE FRONT OF THE HOME.

THE PROPERTY IS A 33-ACRE LOT COMPRISED OF TWO PARCELS.

THE PROPERTY IS ZONED FORM BASE NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT AND LOCATED BETWEEN MILES ROAD.

THE SITE DRAINS INTO A POND LOCATED ON THE EAST CORNER OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

THEY ARE SHOWING TO DRAIN THE POND. THE 3 ACRE TRACT WAS APPROVED ON NOVEMBER 14 AND IT REFLECTED TOTAL OF 131 SINGLE-FAMILY LOTS.

IN 27 CUTTER ON USE. THE MUNIZ NEIGHBORHOOD CODE REQUIRES A MIX OF DIFFERENT COMPONENTS. AT DIFFERENT SCALES AND THESE ARE REFLECTED HERE.

SECTION 2.3.2 F .2 OF THE FORM-BASED CODE STATES FRONT OF GORGES HAVE TO BE LIMITED TO LOTS AT 60 FEET WIDE WHICH IS MEANT BY THE 78 LOTS AND THE GARAGE HAS TO BE SET BACK BEHIND THE FRONT BUILDING CORNER BY AT LEAST 20 FEET OR BE DRIVE THROUGH TO THE REAR OF THE YARD. THAT IS SHOWN ON THE GRAPHIC TO YOUR RIGHT.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING MAJOR WARRANT TO ELIMINATE THIS REQUIREMENT AND DEVELOP DISSEMINATE STATE LOTS WITH GORGEOUS ONLINE WITH THE FRONT OF THE HOME.

THE PROPOSED CONDITION ON THE GRAPHIC TO THE RIGHT SHOWS IT IN A CAR WOULD BE IN FRONT OF THE HOME. IF THIS MORNING FOOT OFFSET WOULD BE ELIMINATED.

APPLICANT HAS JUSTIFIED THE REQUEST. AND COMPLY WITH THE 20 FOOT OFFSET REQUIREMENT AND THOSE HOMEBUILDERS HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES AND ARE LOOKING TO EXTEND THEIR SERVICES FURTHER. THE APPLICANT WAS PROVIDED AN

[02:00:04]

ALTERNATIVE TO ALLOW 10 FOOT OFFSET GARAGE IS IN LIEU OF THE 20 FOOT REQUIREMENT.

MEETING THE MINIMUM SIZE OF 7 FOOT MY 10 FOOT WARRANT. APPLICANT DECIDED NOT TO SHOULD NOT EXCEED 12 FEET IN WIDTH WHEN THE SIDEWALK WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE SHOULD A WARRANT BE GRANTED. PUBLIC NOTIFICATIONS WERE SENT EVERY 200 AND 5 FOOT RADIUS TOTING 70 LETTERS OF WHICH ONLY ONE WAS RECEIVED A 200 FOOT RADIUS IN OPPOSITION.

OUR RECOMMENDATION IS FOR DENIAL FOR THIS MAJOR WARRANT. TO ELIMINATE THE 20 FOOT REQUIREMENT BECAUSE PLACING THE GORGEOUS FORT WILL RESULT IN THE HOMES LOSING THEIR FORM AND CREATIVE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT WERE VEHICLES OF GRUDGES DOMINATE THE SPACE ALONG THE STREET AND ATTENTION TO THE PEDESTRIAN EXPERIENCE WILL BE COMPROMISED.

>> THANK YOU SIR. COMMISSIONERS WE WANT TO WAIT ON QUESTIONS FOR STAFF UNTIL AFTER THE DEVELOPER? I ASSUME THE DEVELOPER HAS A PRESENTATION.

>> CORRECT. >> GOOD EVENING COMMISSION. THANKS FOR STICKING WITH ME TONIGHT. THE NAME IS JOHN ARNOLD I MET SCOREBOARD COMPANY 8214 WESTCHESTER STREET SUITE 710 DALLAS TEXAS 75225. I'M GOING TO GO THROUGH A PRESENTATION EVERYONE'S BEEN HERE FOR A WHILE AND I'LL GO WITH THROUGH QUICKLY.

I KNOW YOU ALL KNOW OUR SUBDIVISIONS AND KNOW WE BEEN DOING.

I WANT TO CLEAR UP WHY WERE ASKING FOR THIS. WERE NOT ASKING FOR THIS BECAUSE WE DON'T BELIEVE THE MARKET IS THERE. WERE ASKING FOR THI WARRANT BASICALLY SO WINDSOR CAN BE A BUILDER INTO THEIR PRODUCT OR BE DOING A RELIC.

THE PRODUCT THAT WE HAVE AND MANAGE ON MILLER, WILLOW WOULD COME UP WITH SIDE THAT WILL BE DOING AND THEN WE JUST GOT THE VILLAS AT LONG BRANCHES WERE CALLING IT APPROVED HOPING TO GO FOR ENGINEERING FRIESEN ON THE PROJECT. WINDSOR IS OUR BUILDER ON ALL THOSE PRINTS WINDSOR'S PRODUCTS, Y'ALL KNOW IT, YOU'VE SEEN IT.

THAT PROBABLY WANT TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THIS COMMUNITY. WE HAVE OTHER BUILDERS IN THE 40 FOOT LONG MEETING FORM-BASED CODE. WE HAVE A BUILDING PARTNER ON THE 70, THE 60 FOOT BOX WITH WINDSOR THAT WILL BE BUILDING AT THE 10 FOOT SET UP THAT'S APPROVED IN OUR MAJOR WARRANT. ALSO WANT WINDSOR TO BE IN THERE AND WINDSOR TO BUILDER PRODUCT. WINDSOR WOULD HAVE TO DESIGN A BRAND-NEW PRODUCT AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT WILL LOOK LIKE. RIGHT NOW IN OUR 4 COMMUNITIES IN RELIC WINDSOR HAS DONE WELL.

WINDSOR HAS A GREAT PRODUCT AND HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED. THAT'S WHAT WE WANT THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD. SOMEHOW THIS SETBACK. I GET ARE SUBJECT PROPERTY LOCATION IS MERE VILLAGE, IT'S ON THE CORNER OF, THAT'S NOT UPDATED, CASTLE ROAD, WE OBVIOUSLY DISTURBED LAST PAGE. IT'S 33 ACRES. CURRENT ZONING WE HAVE FORM-BASED CODE WITH MINOR WARRANTS APPROVED NOVEMBER 14. WHAT WERE ASKING FOR IS TO ELIMINATE THE 20 FOOT GARAGE OFFSET FROM THE FRONT BUILDING CORNER OF THE STATE LOTS.

WE HAVE 78 OF THOSE LAWS. THIS WILL ALLOW US AS WINDSOR TO BUILDER PRODUCT, GIVING MORE USABLE BACKYARDS. I'LL GO INTO THAT IN A WIDER VARIETY OF OUR PRODUCT.

WHICH BASICALLY WE CAN BUILD WINDSOR PRODUCT. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF PROJECT WITH THE OFFSETS AND WINDSOR'S MANAGE ON MILLER. WERE ALLOWED TO HAVE DEEPER BACKYARDS AND WHEN TO PUSH THAT GARAGE BACK, RIGHT NOW MOST OF THE PROJECTS HAVE THE GARAGE FORWARD. THE PUSH THAT GARAGE BACK IN THE SPACE IN THE HOUSE.

THE SPACE HAS TO BE GAINED SOMEWHERE. IT'S MY PUSH THE HOUSE BACK.

LOOSE AREA, OR BACKYARD. WE ARE, AND OUR STAFF ABILITY TALK ABOUT WALK ABILITY AND WE HAVE THE SAME SETBACKS AS WE HAVE LEARNED 3 CURRENT PROJECTS.

ENROLLMENT. STREET VIEW OF MENTORS ON MILLER YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A CAR NOT BLOCKING THE DRIVEWAY. THIS IS A STREET VIEW OF THESE. THERE IS WALK ABILITY IN THESE COMMUNITIES. AS YOU CAN SEE, 2 CARS CAN FIT IN THESE DRIVEWAYS WITHOUT

[02:05:04]

BACKING INTO INTO THE DRIVEWAY. NORTH HAVEN, THIS IS THE LAST LINE.

NORTH HAVEN WAS GIVEN THIS WARRANT. THEY WERE GRANTED RELIEF FROM THE 20 FOOT RANCH OFFSET IN THE ARM BEING ABLE TO BUILD THE SAME OR NEAR THE SAME PRODUCT IT WILL WIND. DON'T PAY ATTENTION THOSE 2 HOUSES.

I JUST REALIZE A SECOND AGO THAT'S ANOTHER PRODUCT. THOSE WITH OTHER PRODUCT.

I JUST REALIZE THAT A SECOND AGO. RON PRODUCT WAS PUT IN THERE.

BUT YOU CAN SEE FROM THE OVERHEAD, THOSE WILL HAVE A DRIVEWAY IN THE FRONT.

THERE WILL BE MUCH LIKE THE PRODUCT YOU JUST SAW HERE. THEY ARE BUILDING THAT CURRENTLY IN A FORM-BASED CODE AREA JUST SOUTH OF US AND WE ARE GRANTED THIS MORNING. SOME OF WINDSOR'S REPRESENTATIVE PRODUCT YOU'VE SEEN IT BEFORE. THERE WILL BUILD ON 60 FOOT LOTS. WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THIS PRODUCT.

THUS FAR ASKING FOR THIS WARRANT. >> IS ADDED TO.

>> THAT'S IT. >> COMMISSIONERS, QUESTIONS WERE STAFF WITH THE DEVELOPER AT THIS TIME? MR. SWIFT? MR. WINTON? MR. CONTE? QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME? MS. VICKI, MISS F ESTEVEZ.

SOME CONFUSE. >> IS OF THE ESTATE LOTS. THE BIGGER LOTS.

>> OR SLOTS. >> THE ORANGE LOTS. >> YES MA'AM.

>> SO THERE 60 FOOT LOTS. >> YES MA'AM. 60 FOOT WIDE.

>> GO BACK TO YOUR PICTURES, THE MATTERS ON MILLER. WHAT SIZE LOTS ARE THOSE?

>> THOSE ARE FOR DIFFERENT LAWNS. BUT IT'S VERY SIMILAR PRODUCTS.

EXCEPT TO THE OF THE 20 FOOT FRONT? >> MATTERS ON MILLER DOES NOT.

HERE'S A BETTER EXAMPLE FROM TALKING ABOUT. PARKS EXPLAINED IT TO ME LITTLE

BIT BETTER. >> IS A NORMAL PAD WITH A FRONT SETBACK.

YOU HAVE A 20 FOOT SETBACK. THE BUILD LINE IS THE FRONTLINE REP FOR THAT ARROW ENDS WITH A 50 ENDS. IT'S FLAT. THEN YOU GO TO THE OTHER ONE.

THERE'S 30 FOOT BACK. THAT'S WHAT WE CURRENTLY ARE THIS DEVELOPMENT.

HIS 30 FOOT BACK. >> AFTER COMING ON THE PAD FOOTPRINT.

>> HE PUT IT COMING ON THE PATH FOOTPRINT AND MOVE THAT GARAGE BACK.

>> THAT'S WHAT IS CURRENTLY SET UP. >> YES THAT'S WHAT IT'S FROM SET UP. 30 SETBACK. FURTHER HOUSE CAN BE ON THE 20 FOOT BUILD LENGTH OF THE GARAGE AGAINST FURTHER HOUSE CAN BE ON THE 20 FOOT BUILD LENGTH OF THE GARAGE AGAINST GUESS? THIS MORNING? YES, SIR?

>> YOUR BACKYARD BASICALLY GETS CUT IN HALF. >> YES.

EVERY GARAGE FORWARD THERE IS A GARAGE, THERE'S A LIVING ROOM OR SOMETHING REPAIRING THAT.

PUSH THE GARAGE BACK, THE SPACE ON THE MAIN FLOOR THAT SQUARE HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE.

THAT SQUARE TYPICALLY GETS PUSHED BACK. THE SUMMER TO GO.

VARDY GOT AN OBSERVED FORM. THAT SPACE IN THE BOTTOM FLOOR AND NO PLANS WILL GET PUSHED BACK INTO THE REAR. MORE THAN LIKELY, WE HAVE MANY DIFFERENT PLANS AND THERE ARE PLANS WITH LARGER BACKYARDS AND SHORTER BACKYARDS. FULLY PUSH THE GARAGE BACK LIKELY A LOT OF THESE WILL BE SHORTER. IT'S JUST ONE OF THE THINGS.

THE OTHER IS, WINDSOR FEELS LIKE THEY HAVE HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO BUILD IN THIS AREA. JANE SWINGS, ARE POPULAR AND IT IS SETBACK.

THE GARAGE ISN'T SETBACK. >> ON THE J SWAINS WE'VE GOT 20 OR 30 FEET.

>> YES BUT THE GARAGE IS IN THE FRONT. >> ARE YOU CAN HAVE SOME J'S?

>> I DON'T BELIEVE I CAN HAVE J SWINGS WITHOUT. I CAN'T HAVE J SWINGS.

>> STRICKER TAKE ANY MORE QUESTIONS? EXIT BECAUSE THE GARAGE IS

FULL. >> MR. WINTON ANY MORE QUESTIONS?

MR. SWIFT ANY MORE QUESTIONS? >> THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. AT THIS TIME WE WILL GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC. IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS PLANNING CODE COMMISSION.

RAISE YOUR HAND WILL BE RECOGNIZE. COMMISSIONERS DISCUSSION, I'LL START OUT WITH MS. MCKAY. ANY ISSUE? MR. ENGEN, ANY DISCUSSION

ITEMS? >> NO. I'M GOING BY WHATEVER THE STAFF

[02:10:02]

IS TELLING US. WHAT WE HAVE TO MEET AND REQUIRE.

CHRISTMAS ESTEVEZ, DISCUSSION ITEMS? MR. SWIFT DISCUSSION ITEMS? MR. WINTON DISCUSSION ITEMS? MR. CONTE DISCUSSION ITEMS? I HAVE ONE.

I THINK THE DIMENSION OF YOUR OTHER PROJECTS THOSE ARE BASICALLY INFILL PROJECTS.

THERE'S MORE PROJECTS EVEN MENTORS ON MILLER IT'S A SMALL PROJECT.

THIS IS A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT. THOSE REASONS WHY, IF THE WINTER HOMES CAN DESIGN A HOME THAT WILL FIT ON THIS PROJECT, THIS MAJOR DEVELOPMENT THEN MAYBE THEY NEED TO LOOK AT DESIGNING SOMETHING THAT DOES. I THINK THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF HAVING ON SITE ROGERS MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS IS COMING IN A MANNER SO MILLER IS NICE BUT IT'S VERY SMALL PROJECT.

IT'S VERY SMALL SCALE PROJECT. ONE OVER HERE OFF OF JESUS IS A VERY SMALL PROJECT.

KIND OF A UNIQUE PIECE OF LAND. THIS IS NOT. THIS VERY LARGE PROJECT.

I FULLY SUPPORT THIS TOWN'S RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS REQUEST FOR A MAJOR ONE PAGE 9.

THEREFORE, I THINK WE'VE ALL HAD A CHANCE TO TALK AND I'M READY FOR MOTION.

MR. CONTAIN? >> GRANDPA MOTION TONIGHT THIS MAJOR WARRANT.

THE SECOND FROM MR. SWIFT. ANY DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION AND I WILL REMIND PEOPLE A VOTE YES IS ABOUT TO DENY. SO ANY DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION? LET'S TAKE THE
