PREVIOUS ACTION

Enterprise TAB February 11, 2015: HELD to the February 25, 2015 TAB meeting per agreement with the applicant: (previously heard)

 

This project meets all the current Commissioner requirements.  It has 10,000 sq. ft., or greater, lots adjacent to the RNP and smaller lots that all exceed 4000 sq. ft. 

 

There was considerable interest in this project which included a neighborhood meeting with the developer.  The primary neighboring resident concerns were:

·   Increased density adjacent to the RNP.

·   Lighting within the project.

·   Increasing the lot size along the western border.

·   Lighting along Starr Ave.

 

The applicant requested Fairfield Ave. to not be dedicated.

 

The TAB requested, and the developer agreed, to the additional conditions.  Fairfield is vacated north of Terrill Ave.  The Terrill Ave. vacation limits the right-of-way usefulness north of Starr and is not required for access to the applicant’s project.  Adequate access and traffic flow can be maintained with the future Placid St. dedication, a ¼ section line road. 

 

The developer will use coach lighting to meet the internal lighting requirement.

 

There was a resident request not to install the street lights along Starr Ave.  The TAB condition would install all the other improvements on Starr Ave., including the conduit and pull boxes installed for future street lights.

 

The applicant will examine the plot plan to determine if larger lots along the western boundary are possible without decreasing any small lot below 4,000 sq. ft.

o                                                              Proposed density too high for the area.

·   How the land will be developed given the 12 degree or greater slope on the parcel.

·   Will the parcel be annexed into Southern Highlands Master Plan?

o                                                              For land annexed into Southern Highlands Master Plan, Title 29 will apply.

o                                                              For land developed as an outparcel, Title 30 will apply and the Hillside & Foothills Development will be in effect for slopes greater than 12 degrees.
