PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE:

Public hearing and consideration of an ordinance changing the zone from PD-C/R (Planned Development Commercial and Residential) to PD-R (Planned Development Residential) on 6.04 acres for Sunbrook Hollow Townhomes.  The property is located at 415 South Dixie Drive (behind the existing building on the property).   

 

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request to change the zone change from Planned Development Commercial/Residential (Mixed Use) to PD-R (Planned Development Residential) on 6.04 acres to accommodate a townhouse development project consisting of fourteen (14) dwelling structures with fifty-four (54) units.  This zone change was previously approved by the City Council on August 6, 2015; however, the zone change has expired (per City Code Section 10-8-5.J).  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: aerial map; general plan map; zoning map; previously approved site plan; proposed site plan; elevations; materials board; and photos of the area.  He reviewed the comments from the Planning Commission who recommended approval to the City Council 4:1, with a reduction of density to five (5) du/ac (approximately thirty (30) units).

 

Applicant Troy Wall provided a brief history of the parcel.  He believes this is a good place for affordable housing.  Although he understands traffic will increase, he believes Dixie Drive has been built to accommodate the increase.  The units will cost approximately $200,000 per unit – approximately 1,370 sq. feet.  There may be some rentals.  The Planning Commission’s reduction of density is not what they planned for.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.

 

Resident Chris Brownberger noted that he heard “affordable” more than he heard “safety”.  He is concerned with safety and increased traffic.

Resident Todd Lineweaver mentioned a video he emailed to the City Council regarding trouble exiting a parking lot.  Allowing for this development is poor planning.  He provided a handout showing other areas being developed and traffic impacts. 

 

Resident Fred Hokama stated that he chose Mathis Park Place after some research.  He looked at the vacant land in the area and it is hard for him to imagine that two-story buildings will fit in with the area.  Half of the units in The Villas are single women or widows who count on each other.  His concern is that the unity of the area will be disturbed by building 54-units next door.   Additionally, he is concerned with the occupancy of the units as well as increase traffic and potential illegal activity with the increase number of residents.      

 

Resident Vera Chancellor asked about the rental situation in the proposed development.  They have experienced drug issue and violence in their neighborhood due to rentals.   Since then they have limited rentals to 5%.  She then asked about a crash gate for emergency vehicles, if it will be used as a second access. 

 

Mayor Pike noted that is not the plan, but this Council cannot bind the hands of future Councils. 

 

Resident Mark Allen stated he owns a home in The Villas.  He asked the Council to put their trust in the Planning Commission. 

 

Resident Larry Skelton explained that the residents have been told that there would be a deceleration lane onto Dixie Drive and it has not been installed. 

 

City Manager Adam Lenhard stated it is illegal to pull into a median while waiting to merge into a travel lane. 

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised the medians can be removed or modified to make them legal.

 

Resident Bob Cicutto mentioned he is concerned with safety turning onto Dixie Drive and not feeling that all of the low income housing needs to be on the entire six (6) acres.   

 

Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.

 

Mr. Willis clarified what can be developed under the current zoning.  The building height is allowed to be up to 35’.  He noted what the setbacks will be. 

 

Mayor Pike commented that residents need consider the alternatives of what could be developed commercially.  Traffic and safety are key issues that the Mayor and Council as well as residents have.  He is a bit trouble with some of the things mentioned.  This proposal is far from high density; this proposal is spreading this type of development around the City.  He understands traffic is a concern.

Councilmember Randall noted these are not low income housing.  There is a difference between low income and affordable housing. 

 

Councilmember Arial stated she has been concerned with this location for some time. 

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Arial to approve the ordinance changing the zone, allowing for thirty (30) units including staff conditions.

 

Councilmember Baca asked Mr. Willis as it is zoned currently; a warehouse or storage facility can be developed.   He replied “yes”.

 

SECOND:        The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes.

 

After being asked by Councilmembers, Mr. Willis noted if the developer wishes to propose something different, they can return in one year unless there is a significant change determined by the Council.  He explained why the Planning Commission reduced the number of units.

 

Mr. Wall explained it will be tough for them to make it with thirty (30) units.  He clarified it is zoned PD-C, if approved he does not want to close the door.  

 

City Manager Adam Lenhard pointed out the decision made by the Council will be final.  If that is not acceptable to the applicant, they can withdraw the request. 

 

Mr. Wall noted that with speaking with an engineer the traffic would not make much difference.  He explained he bought the property from a realtor who lives in the area, whose wife is protesting.  If they keep it zoned PD-C, they can either sell it or develop it as commercial. 

 

Councilmember Hughes withdrew his second.

 

AMENDED

MOTION:      Councilmember Arial amended her motion to allow for forty (40) units.

SECOND:        The amended motion was seconded by Councilmember Baca.

 

Councilmembers Hughes and Bowcutt stated that they would like the developer to return at a future meeting with an updated plan.

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised if there is a concern with the number of units, it may be best to table the item allowing the applicant to return with a number that will work for him. 

 

Councilmember Arial removed her motion.

 

MOTION:      Councilmember Arial to table the item.

SECOND:        The amended motion was seconded by Councilmember Baca.

Representative for the developer, Rick Rosenberg stated changing the density changes the application and will change the product mix.  It has not been looked at by the Planning Commission; he asked if the applicant will have to return to for their approval 

 

A discussion took place regarding whether or not the item needs to go back to the Planning Commission.   City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised it does not.  The Council also discussed the access.

 

Mayor Pike noted there will not be another public hearing.

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.

 

Resident Dennis Judd stated he is concerned with the stability of the hill and with losing their view.

 

Resident John Gibb commented the compromise is good; the previous rejection was appropriate.  

 

Applicant Scott Oakey mentioned that he spoke to adjacent neighbors; they are in favor of what he is proposing.  He provided a rendering of his proposal.  At the Planning Commission, the Assistant City Attorney added language that was not
