The 2.6-acre site is located at the southwest corner of Lakeview Parkway and President George Bush Turnpike Frontage Road, in the City of Rowlett, Dallas County, Texas.]

APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY. ITEM 5B. CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL REGARDING A REQUEST BY LG LAKEVIEW LLC FOR A MAJOR WARRANT TO INCREASE THE ALLOWABLE MAXIMUM SIZE OF AN AWNING SIGN FROM 10 SQUARE FEET TO 30 SQUARE FEET AND ALLOW THE SIGN TO PROJECT ABOUT THE ONLY AT THE SHOPS AT LAKEVIEW.

THE 2.6 ACRE SITE IS LOCATED AT THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF LAKEVIEW PARKWAY AND PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE FRONTAGE ROAD IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT, DALLAS COUNTY, TEXAS.

>> GOOD EVENING. AS YOU STATED WE ARE HERE TO DISCUSS THE MAJOR WARRANT TO

[00:05:07]

INCREASE THE LEVEL OF MAXIMUM SIZE OF THE AWNING SIGN FROM 10 SQUARE FEET TO 30 SQUARE FEET INTO A LOBBY CENTER PROJECT ABOUT THE AWNING AT THE SHOPPES OF LAKEVIEW PROJECT.

THE ZONING IS FOR URBAN VILLAGE DISTRICT. A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND AS TO WHAT THE INTENTIONS OF THE PCODE AR. SECTIONS 5.4.1 OF THE FOREIGN-BASED CODES STATES AWNING SIZE WILL NOT EXCEED 10 SQUARE FEET IN THE ZONING AREA AND WILL ONLY BE LOCATED ON THE FACE SURFACE OF THE AWNING AND NOT PROJECT ABOVE IT.

YOU CAN SEE SOME EXAMPLES THE CODE SHOWS TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THIS WARRANT FOR A 30 SIGN. SECTION 1.5.3 OF THE FORM-BASED CODE STATES MAJOR WARRANT MAY BE ACTED UPON THE CITY COUNCIL FOLLOWING THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THIS MAJOR WARRANT TO ALLOW DESIGN TO PROJECT ABOUT THE ONLY CONSISTENT WITH THE WALL SIGN AREA REQUIREMENT OF 30 SQUARE FEET AS POSTED AND 10 SQUARE FEET THAT THE AWNING ALLOWS. THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE BUILDING FRONTAGE PLACES A NUMBER OF THREE-STORY WINDOWS OR WINDOWS THAT ARE ABOVE A ONE-STORY SPACE ABOVE THE AWNING MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR ANY PEDESTRIAN LEVEL SIGNS TO BE INSTALLED WITHOUT BEING OBSTRUCTED BY THE AWNING ITSELF. THE APPLICANT HAS STATED VISIBILITY OF THE SIGNS WILL BE COMPROMISED BY THESE WINDOWS. IF THE SIGN IS PLACED ABOVE THE WINDOWS. IT WOULD BE COMPROMISED AS IT WOULD NOT BE READILY VISIBLE BY PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC AND IS PLACED BELOW THE WINDOWS, THE AWNING ITSELF WILL BLOCK VISIBILITY OF THE SIGN. SO IF APPROVED THIS REQUESTED SIGN WILL NOT INTERRUPT THE ARCHITECTURAL OF THE PROPORTIONS FOR THE CONTEMPORARY AWNING.

THIS IS A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES SHOWING WHAT THE COMPARISON WITH THE 10 SQUARE FOOT ALLOWED IF IT WERE PROJECTING ABOVE THE MODERN CANOPY WORK MODERN AWNING VERSUS THE 30 SQUARE FEET. YOU CAN SEE THAT AT 10 SQUARE FEET THE SIGN IS HARDLY VISIBLE. AND SO THEY ARE ASKING FOR THIS CHANGE.

HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE THAT WOULD BE OCCURRING IN THE SAME DEVELOPMENT FOR THE BUSINESS.

10 SQUARE FEET ON THE LEFT, 30 SQUARE FEET ON THE RIGHT. >> SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION OF THE CITY COUNCIL HAVE ACTED ON TWO MAJOR WARRANTS PREVIOUSLY IN THIS AREA. ONE FOR VETERANS WHICH YOU MAY REMEMBER WAS A MONUMENT SIGN WHICH WAS APPROVED IN MARCH OF LAST YEAR AS WELL AS CAMP BOW WOW WHICH WAS A REQUEST TO INCREASE THE WALL SIGN SITES FROM 30 SQUARE FEET, THE ALLOWABLE FORM-BASED CODE AREA TO 126 SQUARE FEET WHICH WAS DENIED BY PNC AND WITHDRAWN BEFORE CITY COUNCIL.

THE REQUEST TO ALLOW THE SCIENTIFIC AREA TO BE 30 SQUARE FEET FRONT AWNING SIGN DOES MEET THE INTENT OF THE PEDESTRIAN VISIBILITY OF A WALL SIGN AND IN THIS SCENARIO.

HERE ARE SOME SIGNS ãOR SOME PICTURES OF THE CURRENT CONDITIONS OF THE SITE THESE ARE THE TWO BUILDINGS IN WHICH THE SIGNS WOULD BE PLACED. THERE ARE CURRENTLY TWO SIDES AND YOU CAN SEE TO YOUR LEFT OF THE SCREEN IN JERSEY MIKE'S SIGN THAT CURRENTLY MEETS THE 10 FOOT REQUIREMENT AND AS WE MOVE FORWARD YOU WILL SEE HOW LOW VISIBILITY IS ON THE SITE.

THEY INSTALLED THIS SIGN MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OPERATE WITHOUT A SIGN, AND SO THEY WENT AHEAD AND MET THE REQUIREMENTS BUT ARE STILL PART OF THIS OVERALL BUNDLE SO THAT THEY CAN INCREASE VISIBILITY ESPECIALLY ALONG LAKEVIEW PARKWAY.

VERIZON IS A ONE MORE TIME AND THEY WERE ALSO ABLE TO MEET THE 10 FOOT REQUIREMENT NOTIFICATIONS WERE SENT ON FEBRUARY 24. 12 NOTICES WERE MAILED TO PROPERTIES WITHIN 200 FEET AND 12 PERCENT AND A 500 FOOT RADIUS.

AS OF MARCH 6, WE HAVE RECEIVED ONLY ONE IN OPPOSITION. OUR RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE MAJOR WARRANT TO MAXIMIZE THE SIGN FROM 10 SQUARE FEET TO 30 SQUARE FEET AND TO ALLOW THE SUN TO PROJECT ABOVE THE AWNING AND KEEPS THE INTENT OF THE ESTABLISHED

>> IS THE APPLICANT HERE? BECAUSE I KNOW HE WAS TRYING TO SEND SOMEBODY IN HIS BEHALF BUT

[00:10:07]

HE WASN'T GOING TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TODAY >> THAT'S ONE THING I WILL NOTE RIGHT NOW. NO, IF THE ãIF SOMEBODY WANTS TO COME AND HAVE AN AGENDA ITEM IN FRONT OF THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION AND THEY DON'T BOTHER TO SHOW UP AND EXPECT THE STAFF TO DO IT I DON'T THINK THAT'S SATISFACTORY.

THAT MIGHT NOT AFFECT MY BOAT ON THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE BUT I CERTAINLY HOPE IN THE FUTURE THAT WHEN SOMEBODY HAS BUSINESS BEFORE THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION TO TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW UP BECAUSE THE STAFF ISN'T HERE TO DO THEIR BIDDING AND WE MIGHT HAVE QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT. SO HOPEFULLY, THEY WILL TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW UP FOR THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING IF THIS ITEM ãHOWEVER IT TURNS OUT. DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF AT THIS TIME SINCE WE CAN'T ASK THE APPLICANT ANYTHING?

>> AS OF RIGHT NOW, THERE IS ONE PROPOSED THAT IT HAS NOT BEEN BUILT.

>>

PLANNING AND ZONING. >> OTHER QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? MR. WINTON?

>> IT'S A LOT SIMPLER FOR THEM SINCE THEY ONLY HAVE ONE WORD SIGN TO ACCOMMODATE THAT

REQUIREMENT. >> BETWEEN THE DENTIST OF ROWLETT, THEY HAVE ESPECIALLY INTEGRATED CONDITION WHERE THEY HAVE FIVE

OR SIX WORDS >> THEY WOULD BE AS BIG AS VERIZON BUT OBVIOUSLY, IT'S STILL A LOT LESS VISIBLE BECAUSE THE LETTERING IS STILL SMALLER. AN "O" WOULD BE JUST AS BIG BUT THE LETTERING IS REDUCED

BECAUSE OF THE SIZE. >> CAN YOU EXPLAIN ONE MORE TIME WHY YOU RECOMMENDED

APPROVAL >> AND SO THE FIRST CONDITION IS THE FACT THAT IT'S NOT NECESSARILY VISIBLE IN THIS GRAPHIC, BUT THEYHAVE WINDOWS RIGHT WHERE YOU USUALLY WOULD HAVE A SON, AND WALL SIGN. WHICH WOULD BE THE IDEAL SCENARIO FOR A WALL SIGN THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR A 30 SQUARE FOOT SIGN. THAT BEING THE CASE, IF YOU PUT IT WAY TOO HIGH THEN YOU HAVE KIND OF THAT BREAK FROM VISIBILITY OF THE PEDESTRIAN IF YOU ARE WALKING AROUND YOU ARE NOT NECESSARILY LOOKING UP TO THE ROOF OF THE STRUCTURE.

AND YOU CAN KIND OF SEE HER PORTIONS TO THE GENTLEMAN THERE AT THE CENTER OF THAT IMAGE.

AND SO IF YOU PUT IT TO LOAD THE AWNING ITSELF WOULD BLOCK VISIBILITY AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE LEFT OF THE IMAGE. AND I AM STANDING AT THE PICTURE I WAS STANDING RIGHT AT THE SIDEWALK. AND SO PROJECTING FORWARD THAT SIGN ALLOWED VISIBILITY FROM THE SIDEWALK WHILE STILL MAINTAINING PROPORTIONS ABOUT WALL SIGN.

IT IS ALSO CONSIDERING ã CONSIDER THE FACT THIS IS NOT YOUR REGULAR AWNING AS I SHOWED IN THE FIRST COUPLE OF SLIDES, THERE IS THE TYPICAL AWNING IS A FABRIC ELEMENTTHAT IS COMING AT AN ANGLE AND YOU HAVE WHERE YOU CAN WRITE LETTERING. THIS IS ãIT'S NOT THAT SCENARIO SO IT BECOMES KIND OF A SOLUTION TO A MORE CONTEMPORARY STRUCTURE AND SCENARIO. AND SO WE THINK THAT BRINGING IT FORWARD DOES NOT COMPROMISE THAT ISSUE. IT SIMPLY ELEVATES THAT PEDESTRIAN VISIBILITY WHILE STILL MAINTAINING VISIBILITY FROM THE PARKWAY. AND CREATING THAT CONTEMPORARY

SITUATION. >>

>> CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE PICTURE OF THE BUILDING? THAT THE SIGN IS GOING TO BE

ON? ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE SUN? >> I KIND OF WANTED TO SEE IT.

>> YOU HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION? >> SO IT'S A TWO-PART REQUEST, ONE IS TO INCREASE THE AREA OF

THE SIGN IN THE SECOND ONE IS TO MOVE IT UP FORWARD? >> IS NOT NECESSARILY TO MOVE IT UP FORWARD, IT'S TO MOVE IT ABOVE. THE FORM-BASED CODE REQUIRES IT TO BE ON THE BALLOT SO IF I GO BACK TO THESE IMAGES YOU WILL SEE THE LETTERING IS ONLY ON

[00:15:02]

THE FLAT PORTION OF THAT MORNING. >> BUT THIS IS NOT SIMILAR

AWNING TO WHAT'S ON ã >> CORRECT. IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT AN AWNING THAT WAS ANTICIPATED WHEN THIS REQUIREMENT WAS ESTABLISHED, AND SO THAT'S WHY THIS

CONDITION HAS TO BE BROUGHT FORWARD. >> IT'S A FIXED AWNING.

IT'S A TEXTILE TYPE. IT'S A DESIGN SORT OF THING >> AND JERSEY MIKE, THEIR SIGN

IS ON THE FRONT EDGE OF THAT SHELF. >> CORRECT BECAUSE THEY HAVE THAT ãIT HAS TO COME FORWARD. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BUT IT COULD BE FLOATING.

>> OKAY. AGAIN, TWO PARTS. INCREASE THE SIZE AND MOVE IT OFF THE FACE OF THE BUILDING ONTO THE SHELF ãTHE FRONT OF THE SHELF.

>> RELATIVELY ASK, TO BE EXACT IT'S NOT NECESSARILY MOVING IT FROM THE FACE OF THE WALK BUT FROM THE FACE OF THE AWNING ABOVE IT TO BE ABLE TO PROJECT ABOVE IT

>> I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. THE OTHERS ARE PRINTED ON THE AWNING.

>> CORRECT. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >> DO WE KNOW IF THE ãOR WHY IN THE ARCHITECTURAL PHASE WITH THE WINDOWS IN THE PLACEMENT OR IDEALLY THE PLACEMENT OF THE SIGNING IS WHERE THE WINDOWS ARE? ANY IDEA?

WAS THAT MISSED? >> I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WAS NECESSARILY MISSED.

I THINK ALL ALONG THEY WERE INTENDING TO DO SOMETHING ALONG THE AWNING.

THEY DIDN'T ANTICIPATE THE CONDITION THAT IT WOULD BRING WITH LARGER LETTERING AND WITH

THE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR STAFF AT THIS TIME? OKAY. THANK YOU. AT THIS TIME, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING, AND I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

I DON'T HAVE ANY SPEAKERS CARDS HERE. IF ANYBODY WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE PLANNIN AND ZONING COMMISSION ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, IF YOU WOULD RAISE YOUR HAND.

SEEING NONE I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AT THIS TIME. DISCUSSION ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

ANY ISSUES THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS? COMMENTS? COMPLAINTS? NO? I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS.

YOU KNOW, I DID NOTICE THAT WE HAD THE CAMP BOW WOW ONE BUT THAT WAS SIGNIFICANT.

THEY WERE ASKING FOR A LARGER SIGN AND THIS ONE SEEMS WITHIN THE REALM OF REASON, AND IT LOOKS PRETTY NICE AND I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS REQUEST. RECOMMENDATION OF THE CITY COUNCIL. BASED ON THAT IF WE HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT AND

READY FOR A MOTION. >> APPROVAL OF THE MAJOR WARRANT

FROM MIC] >> AND TO PROJECT ABOVE THE AWNING

>> TO HAVE SECOND? >> MAY 2 FROM MR. WINTON ANY DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION?

>> I HAPPEN TO DRIVE BY ON LAKEVIEW PARKWAY AND NOTICED JERSEY MIKE'S SIGN AND IT'S CURRENTLY AT THE APPROPRIATE LIMIT FOR THE SIGN AND IT LOOKS FINE.

I THINK ALSO THERE IS A REASON WHY WE HAVE A LIMIT ON IT AND WE DON'T NECESSARILY WANT TO HAVE SIGNS ALL OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD ALL OVER EVERY WALL.

AND BASICALLY IT WILL JUST DETRACT FROM BEING ABLE TO SEE ANY PARTICULAR SIGN.

THE OTHER THING IS THERE IS A MONUMENT SIGN NORMALLY AND LIKE YOU SAID, THERE'S ONE IN PLANNING TO PUT ON LAKEVIEW PARKWAY WHICH WOULD ANNOUNCE THAT TO ANYBODY WHO'S LOOKING FOR A SIGN. SO I JUST ãI'M NOT GOING TO CONCUR WITH THIS OR SUPPORT IT

BECAUSE IT SHOULD STAY WITHIN THE REQUIREMENTS. >> ANY OTHER DISCUSSION ON EMOTION? THEN LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE THE VOTE.E HAVE A MOTION TO

[5C. Consider and take action on a request by Ryan Kim, on behalf of property owner, Stephen Kim, Datatronic Control, Inc. for a Site Development Plan for building area that exceeds 25,000 square feet on property zoned Industrial Overlay District. The 1.891-acre site is located at 5130 Dexham Road, in the City of Rowlett, Dallas County, Texas.]

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO CONSTRUCT FIVE 4000 SQUARE FEET BUILDINGS IN ADDITION TO THE EXISTING 10,900 50,000 SQUARE FOOT STRUCTURE ARE LOCATED ON THE PROPERTY.HIS WILL TOTAL A 34,900 57 SQUARE FEET OF BUILDING AREA ON THE SITE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS SITE

[00:20:07]

DEVELOPMENT PLAN BEING BROUGHT BEFORE YOU IS BECAUSE IT EXCEEDS THE THRESHOLD OF 25,000 SQUARE FEET OF COMBINED BUILDING AREA AND BUILDING SQUARE FOOTAGE.

SO THIS ITEM CANNOT BE ADMINISTRATIVELY APPROVED AS NORMAL DEVELOPMENT PLANS ARE APPROVED. THE SITE IS A ONE POINT ã1.891 AREA RECTANGLE SITE AND HAS A 200 FOOT FRONTAGE ON JACKSON ROAD. IT'S ZONED IN THE INDUSTRIAL OVERLAY DISTRICT IN THIS DISTRICT ALLOWS FOR M ONE WHICH IS LIGHT MANUFACTURING AND LITTER INTO HEAVY MANUFACTURING USES IN THIS AREA THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS DEVELOPED WITH THE BUILDING ALREADY EXISTING ON THE SITE AND IT HAS AN ACCESSORY STRUCTURE LOCATED TO THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY AND ALSO HAS TWO TREES ON THE SITE THAT ARE EXISTING.

INGRESS AND EGRESS WILL BE FROM THIS ROAD WHICH IS A 2 LANE UNDIVIDED RD.

SO THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS ã HAS ADJACENT ZONING OF THE INDUSTRIAL OVERLAY DISTRICT AND THE LAND USE PATTERN IS INDUSTRIAL NATURE WHERE IT HAS STORAGE YARD AND ALSO DIFFERENT MANUFACTURING USES LOCATED WITHIN THAT AREA. SO WITHIN THE SITE PLAN THAT WAS PROVIDED TO YOU IN YOUR PACKET YOU WILL SEE THERE'S EXISTING BUILDING LOCATED ON THE SITE AND YOU WILL SEE ALSO THE FOUR PROPOSED 4800 SQUARE FEET BUILDINGS LOCATED AND THEY WILL HAVE A PARKING REQUIREMENT OF 44 PARKING SPACES WHICH EXCEED THE MINIMUM PARKING REQUIREMENT AND THEYALSO DO PROPOSE TO PROVIDE LANDSCAPING.

ALSO, WITH THE BUILDINGS THEY WILL HAVE FACADES WHICH WILL BE MADE OUT OF METAL AND THE OVERHEAD GARAGE AS WILL BE INTERNALLY TO THE SITE. STAFF DOES RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THIS SITE DEVELOPMENT PLAN BECAUSE IT IS IN CONTEXT WITH THE AREA THAT IT'S BEING LOCATED IN AND WHICH IS PREDOMINANTLY INDUSTRIAL IN NATURE.

TO ANY TYPE OF LIGHT INDUSTRIAL AND MANUFACTURING. >> MAY BE ãCAN YOU TELL ME
