2. Southwest Trails*
The Enterprise Town Advisory Board recommends the SW equestrian trails (CC53) be given priority funding from the current SNPLMA trail funds. This priority, suggested by the TAB, is for first funding the SW RNP trails and crossings. Then, second, fund the equestrian crossing on Warm Springs Rd. for Western Trails Park. The following factors require the funds be directed to Enterprise RNP trails:
- Currently, there are no trails in the SW RNPs. SWAN has worked on this trail plan for six years and provided their own plan to the county.
- As the population increases, SW trails are needed to keep up with the new residents using the RNPs for recreational areas and to give equestrians safe routes to ride on.
- Equestrian/pedestrian crossings on Buffalo and Durango are vital to the safety and effectiveness of the plan and to connect to the county's Blue Diamond Wash trail, west of Durango.
- Equestrian/pedestrian crossing on Warm Springs is vital to resident safety to the north of Western Trails Park.
- The at-grade crossings on Buffalo, Durango and Warm Springs must be completed with the current funding.
- The county trails' staff has stated that SNPLMA funding for our trails should be enough to completely grade and construct the trails and add appropriate signage.
Presentation* and recommendations for the Enterprise TAB to conduct public hearings of how to buffer low density residential next to commercial uses and make recommendations.
This is the second hearing that the TAB has conducted on this issue. One of the ideas presented at the meeting was the development of a transition zone district to be used next to residential areas. Also present was a list of possible commercial uses within that transition district. The discussion on the list revealed that residents would prefer to see commercial operations that do not have a heavy traffic flow. Restaurants were cited as an example as to what not to have in this zone.
The discussion of this item will continue at the next TAB meeting.
There is concern about when the paving of Blue Diamond between Rainbow and Durango will be completed. It is possible that the funding for this project has been placed in jeopardy due to the Wachovia lawsuit over FOCUS Kyle Canyon.
The following was presented by SWAN:
SWAN suggests that a program be established to call in retired TAB members when a quorum cannot be achieved. This would allow the TAB workload to flow more smoothly and provide backup for illness or vacations. Since residents invest their time to attend the TAB on issues of interest, they need a recommendation before the item moves forward. Without a quorum, TAB recommendations cannot be made. It could be called the Senior TAB Program, and would eliminate this problem.

15. WS-0812-08 J3 DECATUR, LLC: TAB Approved: the Design Review. TAB Denied: the Waivers of Development Standards
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following:
1) increased freestanding sign height; and
2) increased sign area.
DESIGN REVIEW a comprehensive sign program in conjunction with a shopping center on 3.1 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) (AE-60) Zone in the CMA Design Overlay District. Generally located on the north side of the 215 Beltway and the west side of Decatur Boulevard within Enterprise.
The purpose of the CMA Overlay District was to establish a set of site and design standards for this unique, geographic area and achieve a predictable quality of architectural and site design with an emphasis on a unified and enhanced streetscape. One of the most important elements in ensuring enhanced streetscapes, especially along prominent rights-of-way, is signage. Therefore, the development of the overlay district included an emphasis on minimizing the visual impact of on-premise signage.
The Board's intent in adopting the sign height regulations was to also minimize the concentration of vertical massing along the 215 Beltway in order to enhance the visual aesthetics, minimize vehicular distraction, and improve traffic safety. Several requests have been considered by BCC for increased sign height. Six requests have been denied, with a seventh and eighth request being withdrawn prior to the BCC consideration. During the BCC hearing on the prior requests, there was substantial discussion regarding maintaining the intent and integrity of the established standards. There have been several approvals for increased freestanding sign heights, but those individual circumstances were unique and the BCC clearly articulated those circumstances during the public hearings.
The applicant stated they would like to see the sign standard changed to permit taller and larger signs. The TAB opinion is the applicant will have to take any request for a standards change up to the County Commissioners. The TAB agreed with the staff analysis and voted to deny the Waivers of Development Standards. BCC morning agenda item # 30
16. WT-0935-08 RICHMOND AMERICAN HOMES: TAB Approved with condition of 3 yrs to complete
WAIVER to extend the time limit for an improvement bond in conjunction with a residential subdivision on 20.0 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone in the Pinnacle Peaks Concept Plan area.

17. ZC-0912-08 BERMUDA BUILDING, LLC: TAB Approved with Zone Change to C-1
1. Trash container to the NW portion of the property.
2. Lighting to comply with current Title 30 lighting standards.
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 1.9 acres from C-P (Office and Professional) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.
DESIGN REVIEW for an office/retail building. Generally located on the southwest corner of Warm Springs Road and Bermuda Road within Enterprise (description on file).
The TAB felt the C-2 zone was too intense for the neighborhood. Tavern and 24-hour operations were opposed by the neighbors. Also, the applicant could not tell the TAB what tenants would require a C-2 zone to operate. With the lack of clarity on tenants and the neighborhood opposition, the TAB concluded C-1 was a better fit for this corner. If this project should fail and the C-2 zone was in place, it could lead to a 24-hour convenience store operation which the neighbors do not want. BCC morning consent agenda item # 21
