PREVIOUS ACTION Enterprise TAB May 14, 2014: HELD to the May 28, 2014 TAB meeting with the applicant’s consent: 5-0. (Previously heard)


This request was generated by the change from commercial to residential use on the adjoining property.


In the BCC-approved church plan, it was anticipated that the adjoining property would be commercial.  The commercial development timing was not known.  The west wall design anticipated the wall being replaced during commercial development with a berm and wall suited to both activities.  It was not anticipated that additional walls south of the church property would be built. 


The adjoining property was purchased by William Lyons Homes for residential subdivision.  The builder has different requirements for subdivision walls than previously anticipated.  The church and the builder are working together to have a single wall on the church’s southern and western borders.  The new wall design will meet the needs of both parties and satisfy the BCC conditions previously approved.  The builder estimates they will construct the south and west walls late this year.  The one year completion date was requested to allow for permitting and plan check delays.


The TAB conditions are intended to clarify the scope and limits of this waiver.  The added conditions set a new time limit for wall completion.  The waiver allows for different wall design and materials for the southern and western walls than previously approved.  It also prevents the construction of redundant walls and ensures all other previous conditions remain in force.


The Church is responsible for the wall construct if an agreement cannot be reached with William Lyons Homes.


The TAB recommends approval to allow the Church to open their new classrooms and completion of the southern and western border walls to meet the needs of the neighbors, the Church and William Lyons Homes.



HELD until the June 11, 2014 TAB meeting per request of applicant.


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 3.4 acres from H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.


DESIGN REVIEW for a mini-storage, recreational vehicle storage, and truck rental facility.  Generally located on the southwest corner of Blue Diamond Road and Fort Apache Road (alignment) within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/mk/ml (For possible action)


PREVIOUS ACTION Enterprise TAB May 14, 2014: HELD to the May 28, 2014 TAB meeting with the applicant’s consent: 5-0. (Previously heard)


06/17/14 PC



         APPROVED per staff conditions


USE PERMIT for modified wall height standards in conjunction with a proposed subdivision on 298.9 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community.  Generally located on the south side of Golf Estates Drive and the west side of Southern Highlands Parkway within Enterprise . SB/rk/ml  (For possible action)


There is a concern that non-tiered retaining walls will have enough setback from the home to allow for repairs to the retaining wall.  One estimate is the clearance needed for repair equipment is approximately twice the height of the wall.  The hydraulic pressure on a flat wall may cause the wall to bulge over time.  The repair would require the use of heavy equipment and the space to operate.


The homes will meet the standard county offsets which may not be enough clearance to operate heavy equipment needed for retaining wall repairs.  This may be a case where additional setback standards are required in the hillside areas.

5.      DR-0277-14 – BCP-SILVERADO & BERMUDA, LLC:

         APPROVED per staff conditions and,

ADD a Current Planning conditions:

·   Design Review as a Public Hearing for Lighting and Signage.


DESIGN REVIEW for modifications to a portion of a previously approved shopping center on 6.2 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.  Generally located on the northwest corner of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Bermuda Road within Enterprise.  SS/jt/ml  (For possible action)


Lighting and signage were not covered in this application.  The close proximity of residential units is a sufficient reason for a lighting and signage review.


6.      ZC-0050-12 (WC-0059-14) – CANARELLI FAMILY LAND, LLC:

APPROVED per staff conditions and,

ADD Current Planning conditions:

·   Ten foot rear setback for hammerhead and knuckle lots with an additional one foot intrusion for balconies;

·   All other lots with a one foot intrusion to a rear setback of 14 feet for a balcony.


WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a zone change requiring waiver of development standards #4 for reduced setback restricted to hammerhead and knuckle lots only in conjunction with a single family residential development on 51.3 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone.  Generally located on the north side of Warm Springs Road and the west side of Jones Boulevard within Enterprise.  SS/co/ml  (For possible action)


The TAB pointed out the approval of this waiver would allow 10 ft. setbacks on all project lots.  Also, discussed was the need to modify the hammerhead setback waiver to allow for the balconies.  After some discussion, the conclusion was to restate the waiver restriction for hammer head lots modified to include balconies.  A second condition was added to cover all the other project lots’ rear setback.
