3.      DR-0053-11 – MAVERIK, INC:

         APPROVED per Staff conditions:

         The TAB strongly recommends the Waiver of Conditions for access on Blue Diamond be granted.


DESIGN REVIEW for signage and lighting for an approved convenience store.


WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a zone change (ZC-0552-10) requiring no access to Blue Diamond Road on 3.3 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone and a C-1 (Local Business) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District.  Generally located on the southwest corner of Blue Diamond Road and Durango Drive within Enterprise.  SB/tc/ml


Waiver of conditions is the significant part of this application.  Access to Blue Diamond Rd. is critical to the project success.  The right-in and right-out is necessary for patrons to enter the property from Blue Diamond.  If the only entrance/exit is on Durango, it will create a safety hazard as individuals look for the first available U turn on Durango to return to Blue Diamond.  The curb-cut on Blue Diamond also provides better access for tanker trucks making fuel deliveries.  The applicant stated NDOT has given them preliminary approval for a curb-cut on Blue Diamond Rd. 


Maverik submitted an excellent lighting and signage plan.  The plan provides excellent lighting with little spill over into the residential areas.  The applicant was given suggested lighting standards by the TAB during the original application process.  All the suggestions were incorporated in their plan.  One area the applicant had a question about was the florescent lighting trim around the building.  The TAB agreed the building would look better with trim on all sides of the building.  However, this was not incorporated into a condition of approval.


4.      ZC-0051-11 – MIKE-SAB, LLC:

APPROVED 4-1 (Andoscia nay) per Current Planning conditions and following changes: with the above noted change and addition.


ADD Current Planning condition:

   Design review as a public hearing for significant changes to the plan.


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 2.2 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.


DESIGN REVIEW for a retail center in the MUD-1 Overlay District.  Generally located on the north side of Bruner Avenue and the west side of Haven Street within Enterprise (description on file).  SS/dg/ml


A letter was submitted to the TAB by a resident north of this project.  Their request was the application be turned down.  The resident would prefer the land remain as open space to serve as a buffer.  The TAB discussion focused on the intensity of the uses allowed.


One side felt that C-2 zone district and associated uses are acceptable adjacent to the north residential area.


The other opinion is the C-1 zone district would allow the applicant to develop the project while providing some measure of buffer for the residents with less intense uses.


The factors considered by the TAB were:

·   The applicant had pervious C-2 zone district on the property which expired

·   The housing to the north was built after the original zone district was granted.

·   A large casino project is planned south of Bruner.

·   Bruner was reduced from an arterial to a local street as part of the casino application.

·   The area has changed since the original application (2000)

·   The applicant’s intended uses are retail.

·   The more intense uses could be granted by special use permit.

·   Resident opposition.

·   The building design was appropriate for the area.

·   Dottie’s across the street blocks a tavern use.


The TAB added the condition for a design review as a public hearing.  If the C-2 zone district is granted and the property changes hands, the design review would allow for a public comment on any new projects
