The modular building on the property is considered a vehicle because it was initially manufactured as a trailer for transport to the site. The applicant has no intention of moving the building off the site and asks the Use Permit be made permanent . The TAB felt the modular office building needed to be real property if there was not a review period for the Use Permit. The applicant has agreed to the condition. PC consent agenda item # 4

Parking is needed for the church. The parking lot design presented had one entrance on Placid. The TAB opinion was a traffic jam would be created as people exited from the current church parking lot and the new parking lot. The other question raised was safe crossing of pedestrian traffic generated by the parking lot west of Placid.
The day care is a small facility for 15 to 30 children. The applicant had the plot plan and no other documentation for the day care. The applicant also stated that plans could change as the state reviewed the child care plans. The TAB has seen a number of child care facility plans presented. They are very detailed with plot plans, elevations and landscaping details. The TAB held this item for the lack of plans and review of safety concerns for the parking lot. PC consent agenda item # 18

This is a non-conforming zone change. It is due to the designation of the entire site as Commercial Regional. This zone change request is for a gated 320 unit apartment complex on a 13 acre portion of an overall 18 acre site. The developer is requesting to have a portion of that property zoned R-4 (multi-family), while leaving the remaining 5 acres along Rainbow Boulevard and Windmill Lane as commercial. The density of the subdivision is shown at 24.6 dwelling units per acre. The majority of the buildings will be 3 stories in height with 2 story units along the rear portion of the project. The complex will provide one and two bedroom units.
The TAB’s approval of this project was
based upon the need for apartment housing in the area of the project.

The applicant has worked with the neighbors and SWAN to make this an acceptable project for the neighbors. The only opposition was from one neighbor who was not involved in the negotiations. The neighbors requested an eight foot high wall with 18" of wrought iron on top, instead of the standard six foot wall, as a security measure. The yards next to this project have been used as a getaway path for robberies that occur in the mall to the west. The Planning Commission can authorize the increased wall height by including it in their approval motion. PC agenda item # 42

This project is a 13 lot subdivision with lot sizes from slightly
over 18,000 ft to 29,000 ft. There was a lot of discussion about security
as the justification for a gated, walled-in subdivision. However,
security is more a function of having sufficient METRO presence than in how a
project is constructed. In some cases, high-end, gated subdivisions
become targets for crooks. This project has the potential to change the
nature of this RNP. The
The other consideration for this RNP is to develop a traffic plan for the entire RNP. There is sufficient development planned in and around this RNP to require a traffic plan now. PC agenda item # 47

This applicant did not have the required plans and elevation to present the project to the TAB. There was a push by the applicant to have the TAB approve the project without the plans. The TAB did not feel this was an appropriate course of action.
The lack of plans or poorly prepared presenters hinders the TAB from performing its function of advising the PC and BCC. Both of these conditions require the TAB to spend additional time to explore the item under review. BCC consent agenda item # 4

pedestrian realm along
The pedestrian realm is required for a mixed use development project. The original design of the project showed a 15 ft wide, curved walkway with trees, benches and other pedestrian-oriented items. This is a very nice feature to have on the border of the project. It is also expensive to develop and maintain.
NDOT requires the property owner to maintain the pedestrian realm and enter into a maintenance agreement. It appears the maintenance cost is what the applicant is trying to avoid. This is too bad because a very nice project just became less so. BCC agenda item # 41

The plans depict 3 proposed structures that will be utilized as a place of worship consisting of a 41,400 square foot, single story, 38.5 foot high place of worship, a 34,400 square foot, single story, 34 foot high parish hall, and a 60 foot high bell tower and religious decorative feature (cross). The applicant is requesting a use permit to allow an increase in height. No justification was given as to why the height regulations should be waived. The place of worship will have a 2,000 seat sanctuary and the parish hall will have an 800 seat altar room. The structures will be located on the northern and western portions of the site with parking in the southeast and northeast.
The proposed design is too large for the site. This use permit needs to be conditioned as follows:
1. The max size of the sanctuary is 1000- seats.
2. No parking waivers
3. Primary traffic access--Lindell South to Serene then west to Jones
4. Traffic mitigation for the entire RNP
5. The applicant pays for all traffic and mitigation.
The applicant plans a regional church that would impact the entire RNP and change its character if this project is built with the current design.
BCC: Afternoon Session
Items 47, 48, and 49 were heard by the BCC one month ago. At the time, the BCC was reluctant to vacate Rancho Destino between Shelbourne and Windmill, which was a major factor in the project. So far I do not know if this item will be heard on Wednesday (November 7) or not. If you are interested plan to be there or send me an email with your opinion. After much discussion and some confusion SWAN is opposed to the proposed road closure, which would simply throw excess traffic onto parallel streets in the RNP.
