Development Review Planner Jessica Jimmerson presented an overview of the proposed rezoning.  The applicant has requested rezoning in order to prepare the property for development. The applicant has considered building a condominium development.   In the proposed zonnig of R-4, a range of residential projects could develop, including low-density apartments at 16 dwelling units per acre, townhomes, duplexes and single family.

 

Harvey Mitchell Parkway is classified as a freeway/expressway on the Thoroughfare Plan.  Access to these roadways should be limited to controlled entrance points.  This particular tract, however, does not have access from any other roadway.  One access point would be permitted and as the property develop, staff will exercise the City’s full authority under the Subdivision Regulations and/or the Driveway Ordinance to ensure that this access point is located and constructed to the safest standards.

 

The Planning and Zoning Commission and staff recommended approval of the rezoning request to R-4 as it is in compliance with the development trends in the area and it does not violate any of the City’s Development Policies.

Regular Agenda Item No. 12.4 – Public hearing, discussion and possible action on an amendment to the Wolf Pen Creek zoning district pertaining to dedication and development of the minimum reservation area.

 

City Planner Jane Kee stated the Wolf Pen Creek Master Plan adopted in 1988 provides for hike and bike trails throughout the park along the creek.  When the Wolf Pen Creek zoning ordinance was adopted in 1989, this area was called the minimum reservation area.  It was defined as an area twenty feet wide running parallel to the floodway on either side of the creek.  In the ordinance, the developers had an option to dedicate this property to the City to ultimately improve or to improve it themselves and maintain it or dedicate to the City after making

 

improvements.  The master plan was revised in 1998 and an oversight committee was established to oversee implementation of the master plan. The committee suggested more detailed design on the downstream portion of the creek to establish where those areas that would ultimately contain the trails and other improvements. 

 

The proposed amendment changes would allow the following:

 

·       More specific description for the minimum reservation areas for the downstream portion of the creek

·       The developer now has the option to dedicate this better-defined area as a drainage and access easement rather than as a fee simple dedication.  They would have the option to actually develop the improvements himself and maintain the improvements.

 

The Planning and Zoning Commission and staff recommended approval of the amendments to the Wolf Pen Creek zoning district.

 

Mayor McIlhaney opened the public hearing.  No one spoke.  Mayor McIlhaney closed the public hearing.

 

Councilman Massey moved to approve Ordinance No. 2524 approving the amendment to the Wolf Pen Creek zoning district.  Motion seconded by Councilman Garner, which carried by a vote of 6-0.
