READY FOR A MOTION, SIR.

MAYOR I MAKE A MOTION THAT WE ACCEPT THE CONSENT AGENDA AS IS.

WITH EXCEPT, EXCEPT I2.

OK.

WE HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA WITH WITH OBVIOUSLY THE EXCLUSION OF ITEM TWO I.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE TO VOTE FOR US, PLEASE.

COUNCIL.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS IS OK.

THERE IT GOES, OK.

MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD DISPLAY THE VOTE PLEASE AND THAT IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

NOW WE WILL GO BACK TO ITEM TWO I.

IF I CAN FIND IT NOW THAT, THERE WE GO.

ITEM TWO I IS EMS MEDICAL CONTROL SERVICES AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE ASSISTANT CHIEF WEBB HERE TO GIVE US A LITTLE BACKGROUND.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS HAD THIS ITEM PULLED, SIR? THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE THIS EVENING CHIEF, AND AS YOU AS YOU WILL JUST GO AND GIVE US AN OVERVIEW AND AND TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE BENEFIT OF THIS THIS AGREEMENT, THIS CHANGE, THE BENEFIT TO THE RESIDENTS OF GARLAND.

YES, SIR. I'D BE HAPPY TO.

THANK YOU. FOR MANY YEARS, WE'VE ENJOYED A VERY LUCRATIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH PARKLAND HOSPITAL AS OUR MEDICAL CONTROL, WE HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT CHANGING OUR MEDICAL CONTROL TO MEDICAL CITY OF PLANO IS GOING TO BE OF MUCH BENEFIT TO NOT ONLY THE PARAMEDICS AND THE GARLAND FIRE DEPARTMENT, BUT TO THE CITIZENS OF GARLAND, AS WELL.

AS THE CITIES TO THE WEST AND EAST OF US.

BOTH RICHARDSON AND ROWLETT BOTH ALREADY ARE MEMBERS OF THE MEDICAL CITY MEDICAL CONTROL DIRECTION. AND WE DO THAT.

WE DO A LOT OF MUTUAL AID AND AUTOMATIC AID WITH THOSE CITIES.

SO THE CONTINUITY OF CARE WOULD BE A SEAMLESS TRANSITION BECAUSE OUR PROTOCOLS AND EVERYTHING WOULD BE THE SAME. SO WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO STOP AND THINK HOW THEY DO THINGS IN

[00:10:03]

RICHARDSON OR ROWLETT. SO THAT'S GOING TO BENEFIT ALL THREE CITIES EXPONENTIALLY TO THAT DEGREE. FOR YEARS PARKLAND WAS ONE OF OUR WAS OUR CLOSEST TRAUMA HOSPITAL OVER THE YEARS.

MANY SEVERAL MORE TRAUMA HOSPITALS HAVE COME INTO EXISTENCE THAT ARE CLOSER AND ALLOWS US TO TRANSPORT OUR PATIENTS IN A QUICKER MANNER, WHICH WOULD WHICH LIMITED OUR MEDICS EXPOSURE TO OUR MEDICAL CONTROL OF DOCTORS, WHICH PRACTICE OUT OF PARKLAND HOSPITAL, THE MEDICAL CONTROL DOCTOR THAT WE WOULD HAVE FROM MCP PRACTICES MAINLY OUT OF MEDICAL CITY DALLAS WITH SEVERAL ROTATIONS AT MCP.

SO WE'D HAVE MORE ACCESS TO OUR MEDICS ON A REGULAR BASIS.

SO THAT WOULD BUILD A STRONGER BOND BETWEEN OUR MEDICS AND OUR MEDICAL CONTROL.

AND THAT WOULD YOU KNOW, OUR MEDICS WOULD BE ABLE TO LIVE UP TO HIS EXPECTATIONS A LITTLE BIT BETTER BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH HIM ON A REGULAR BASIS.

ANOTHER BENEFIT IS OUR MEDICAL CONTROL FROM MCP WOULD BE DELIVERING QUARTERLY ISD HOURS TO OUR MEDICS. SO ONCE A QUARTER, OUR MEDICS WOULD HAVE SEVERAL HOURS WITH HIM TRAINING AND GETTING TO BUILD THE RELATIONSHIP THROUGH THAT WHICH THAT IS ONE THING THAT WE DID NOT RECEIVE FROM PARKLAND.

SO AGAIN, IT'S GOING TO BUILD A STRONGER RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR MEDICAL CONTROL.

THEY HAVE VERY ROBUST TACTICAL MEDIC PROGRAM THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE PART OF IN REGARDS TO THE TRAINING, WHICH IS GOING TO BE A BENEFIT NOT ONLY TO OUR MEDICS THAT ARE THE TACTICAL MEDICS, BUT ALSO TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, BECAUSE OUR AS YOU WELL KNOW, OUR TACTICAL MEDICS RESPOND WITH THE SWAT OFFICERS ON THEIR CALLS AND STUFF. SO IT'S GOING TO CREATE IT'S GOING TO CAUSE OUR MEDICS TO BE MORE EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE FOR THE POLICE OFFICERS THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE RUNNING WITH THE QUALITY.

THE Q&A QE? PROGRAM THAT THEY PROVIDE IS GOING TO GIVE US BETTER QUALITY CONTROL OVER OUR MEDICS IN REGARDS TO THE REPORTING AND OTHER PATIENT CARE.

AND THE LAST BUT NOT LEAST, IF YOU'RE COUNTING THE THERE'S ABOUT A FOUR THOUSAND DOLLAR SAVINGS PER YEAR IN REGARDS TO THE CONTRACT.

SO WE'RE RECEIVING MORE MONEY.

WE'RE RECEIVING MORE FOR THE MONEY THAT WE'RE SPENDING.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CHIEF, APPRECIATE THAT.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

YES, SIR. Y'ALL HAVE A GOOD EVENING.

THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT, UNLESS THERE'S ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS, I BELIEVE WE'RE READY TO MOVE FORWARD FOR A VOTE.

YOU HAVE TO PUNCH YOU IN THERE, COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU. I'LL MAKE A MOTION THAT WE APPROVE THIS AS WRITTEN.

SO I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA AND I THINK IT'S ME.

I THINK IT'S DOING THAT.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA AND THE SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN TO APPROVE ITEM TWO I, WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION.

MADAM SECRETARY, CAN YOU PREPARE THE VOTE FOR US.

THANK YOU. IF YOU KEEP PUSHING IT, MAYBE. THERE WE GO, THERE WE GO.

MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU CAN DISPLAY THE VOTE FOR US, PLEASE, AND THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY. THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, THAT MOVES US TO ITEMS FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION, MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD COVER THE SPEAKER RULES FOR US, PLEASE.

YES SIR, THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK IS GIVEN TO PROVIDE TESTIMONY RATHER THAN TO QUESTION THE CITY COUNCIL OR STAFF.

THE CHAIR MAY CALL A SPEAKER OUT OF ORDER IF THE SPEAKER PRESENTS QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION THAT WILL UNDULY DELAY THE TRANSACTION OF BUSINESS AT THE MEETING.

THAT MOVES US TO ITEM TWELVE, HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS.

ITEM 12 A CONSIDER A REQUEST BY PANKAJ PATEL FOR A LIMITED SERVICES HOTEL FAIRFIELD INN

[12A. Consider a request by Pankaj Patel for a Limited Service Hotel [Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott] with 85 rooms. This property is located at 565 Town Center Boulevard in District 1]

AND SUITES BY MARRIOTT WITH EIGHTY FIVE ROOMS. THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT TWO, 565 TOWN CENTER BOULEVARD IN DISTRICT ONE, AND MAGICALLY MR. GUERIN APPEARS AT THE PODIUM.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR EIGHTY FIVE ROOMS. THIS IS A FAIRFIELD INN AND SUITES BY MARRIOTT HOTEL IN THE CORE OF THE FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER. THE LOCATION IS FIVE SIXTY FIVE TOWN CENTER BOULEVARD, WHICH PUTS IT PRETTY MUCH RIGHT AT THE CORE OF THE TOWN CENTER.

AS I SAID, THE ACREAGE OF THE SUBJECT SITE IS ZERO POINT THREE TWO SEVEN ACRES.

HERE'S A GENERAL LOCATION MAP OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

AGAIN, THIS IS IN THE FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER AREA THAT YOU CAN SEE IN THE RED STAR WHERE THE LOCATION OF FIREWHEEL IS LOCATED AND THE MORE SPECIFIC LOCATION MAP IS SHOWN BEFORE YOU OUTLINED IN TEAL.

IT'S A CURRENT VACANT SITE WITHIN THE TOWN CENTER.

I'LL KIND OF JUMP TO HAVE AN AERIAL FROM JUST TAKEN FROM GOOGLE MAPS HERE.

BUT HERE'S A SUBJECT SITE HERE.

JUST A LITTLE CONTEXT.

HERE'S THE OLD NAVY JUST DIRECTLY TO THE WEST OF IT.

MACY'S IS OVER HERE, FURTHER TO THE EAST.

SO, AGAIN, THIS IS THE SUBJECT SITE, TOWN, TOWN CENTER BOULEVARD AND PRAIRIE CLOVER LANE.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IDENTIFIES THIS AREA AS REGIONAL CENTERS.

AND FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER IS A REGIONAL CENTER.

AND THE PROPOSED LAND USE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND SUPPORTIVE TO THE FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER.

THE HOPE AND IDEAS THAT IT WILL BRING VISITORS TO THE AREA THAT HOPEFULLY GET AROUND AND SHOP AT LOCAL STORES AND EAT IN THE LOCAL RESTAURANTS AT FIREWHEEL, AND ALSO A SUPPORTIVE VIEWS TO THE RESIDENTS IN THE AREA, AS WELL AS A POSSIBLE HOTEL FOR FAMILY MEMBERS AND WHATNOT. HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA.

THIS INCLUDES THE SUBJECT SITE HERE.

AND HERE'S THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN, THE PROPOSED BUILDING OUTLINE IS LOCATED HERE AND THERE'S AN OUTDOOR PATIO SEATING AREA OVER HERE.

THE DUMPSTER WOULD BE LOCATED IN THE BACK OVER HERE, BUT THEY WOULD BE MAINTAINING AND ESSENTIALLY KEEPING, FOR THE MOST PART, THE EXISTING IMPROVEMENTS.

THERE'S AN EXISTING SIDEWALK HERE, STREET TREES ON STREET PARKING.

OF COURSE, THE APPLICANT HAS A PARKING AGREEMENT WITH SIMON.

AND HERE'S THE LANDSCAPE PLAN, IT MEETS THE LANDSCAPING REGULATIONS OF THE GDC AS WELL AS THE PD. AND YOU CAN SEE HERE THEY ARE PROVIDING SOME ADDITIONAL STREET TREES AND AND LANDSCAPING ON THE SITE.

HERE ARE THE PROPOSED BUILDING ELEVATIONS, THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROPOSING SIX STORIES HERE, IT IS QUITE A SMALL SITE, SO THEY'LL BE IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THE EIGHTY FIVE ROOMS, THEY WILL BE BUILDING VERTICALLY, ESSENTIALLY.

SO, AGAIN, SIX STORIES HERE KIND OF RUN THROUGH THE ELEVATIONS HERE.

AND PART OF THIS REQUEST IS AN SUP, THE PD REQUIRES AN SUP FOR LIMITED SERVICE HOTELS, WHICH IS WHAT THIS WOULD BE CLASSIFIED AS.

SO THE THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A TIME PERIOD OF 30 YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE COUNCIL'S SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE.

AND THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A FEW DEVIATIONS IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS SITE WORK, ESSENTIALLY, LIKE I SAID, IT IS A FAIRLY SMALL SITE IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE EIGHTY FIVE ROOMS, THEY'RE ESSENTIALLY HAVING TO BUILD VERTICALLY AND REQUEST A FEW ACCOMMODATIONS.

SO JUST RUNNING THROUGH THE LIST HERE, BUILDING HEIGHT IS ONE OF THEM BECAUSE IT IS SIX

[00:20:02]

FLOORS THAT GETS IT TO EIGHTY ONE FEET IN HEIGHT.

THE GENERAL MAXIMUM BUILDING HEIGHT IN THE PD IS FIFTY FIVE FEET.

LOT COVERAGE. THE GENERAL LOT COVERAGE REQUIREMENT IS 40 FEET OR EXCUSE ME, 40 PERCENT.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING JUST OVER SIXTY THREE PERCENT.

A SWIMMING POOL. THE GDC'S REQUIREMENT FOR SWIMMING POOL SIZE IS A MINIMUM OF EIGHT HUNDRED SQUARE FEET OF SURFACE WATER AREA, THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A SWIMMING POOL SIZE OF THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN SQUARE FEET.

THE APPLICANT'S NOTE HERE IS THAT THE MARRIOTT FRANCHISE REQUESTS THE PROPOSED SIZE DUE TO SITE CONSTRAINTS AND THERE IS NO ROOM FOR A LARGER SWIMMING POOL.

THE GDC ALSO REQUIRES A PORTE-COCHERE OR A COVERED VALET AREA THAT'S INTENDED PROBABLY MORE FOR A SUBURBAN CONTEXT WHERE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE SPACE TO DRIVE IN TO THE HOTEL SITE BY A VEHICLE. THIS SITE DOESN'T REALLY ALLOW FOR THAT.

SO WHAT THEY'VE GOT IS A COVERED CANOPY AREA OVER THE ENTRANCE FOR WALK INS AND THEY DO HAVE PARKING SPACES IN THE FRONT THAT WOULD BE DESIGNATED FOR GUESTS CHECKING IN AND OUT.

THEY WOULD HAVE PARKING SPACES DESIGNATED FOR 20 MINUTE PARKING AND THEN FINALLY A MEETING OR CONFERENCE ROOM.

THE APPLICANT IS NOT PROVIDING A CONFERENCE ROOM, WHICH IS ONE OF THE HOTEL SPECIAL STANDARDS IN THE GDC.

SO THAT'S ONE OF THE DEVIATIONS.

HOWEVER, THE APPLICANT WOULD BE MEETING THE GDC BY PROVIDING ADDITIONAL INTERNAL FEATURES, SUCH AS A FITNESS CENTER, PANTRY, A COMMON LEISURE AREA AND LOUNGE.

I MENTIONED THE SWIMMING POOL EARLIER AND THEN THERE WOULD BE TWO OUTDOOR PATIOS THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE TO GUESTS.

STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST, AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL, THAT WAS WITH AN EIGHT TO ONE VOTE.

AND FURTHER, THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED TO ALLOW AN ADDITIONAL ALMOST TWO PERCENT OF LOT COVERAGE TO ALLOW IT TO 65 PERCENT JUST TO ALLOW A LITTLE BIT OF FLEXIBILITY.

SOMETIMES A LOT COVERAGE CAN CHANGE A LITTLE BIT DURING CONSTRUCTION.

SO THAT WAS THEIR ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATION.

AND AS FAR AS MAIL OUTS WE MAILED OUT HERE IT IS.

NINETY FIVE LETTERS ON THIS CASE AND WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY RESPONSES.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE.

MR. GUERIN THANK YOU. OK, NOW HANG ON, COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

YES. WILL, CAN YOU SHOW US IN ONE OF THE PICTURES WHERE THE PARKING IN LIEU OF THE PORTE-COCHERE WAS GOING TO BE? OH, YES, SIR.

LET'S SEE THAT JUMP BACK A FEW SLIDES.

YEAH. PULL UP THE SITE PLAN HERE.

YES, SIR. SO RATHER THAN HAVING KIND OF A PORTE-COCHERE WHERE THERE'S REALLY NO VEHICULAR ROOM TO KIND OF HAVE A, YOU KNOW, A LOOP DRIVE, SO TO SPEAK, THAT YOU MIGHT SEE FOR A LARGER SITE, FOR A HOTEL WITH ALL THE PARKING IN THE FRONT, THE HOTEL WOULD ESSENTIALLY FRONT THE THE SIDEWALK HERE.

AND YOU'VE GOT ON STREET PARKING HERE.

AND I BELIEVE THEY WOULD BE KIND OF DESIGNATED THESE FIRST THREE SPACES FOR GUESTS CHECKING IN AND OUT. OK, AND WHERE IS THAT IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE CANOPY? I BELIEVE THE APPLICANT MAY BE ABLE TO CONFIRM THIS.

IT'S PROBABLY A LITTLE HARD TO SEE ON THIS, BUT I BELIEVE THE CANOPY IS JUST RIGHT IN THE FRONT WHERE THE ENTRANCE WOULD BE FOR FOR WALK INS, FOR PEDESTRIANS, OF COURSE, WALKING INTO THE BUILDING. OK, I'M JUST THINKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE PARKING, I GUESS, KIND OF IN THE IN THE STREET AREA FOR LOADING AND UNLOADING IF IT'S NOT VERY IDENTIFIABLE, WHERE THE LOADING AND UNLOADING ZONE IS.

SURE. OK, AWESOME, THANK YOU.

VERY GOOD. ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? THANKS WILL.

MADAM SECRETARY? YEAH, MADAM SECRETARY, CAN YOU CALL OUR SPEAKERS FOR US, PLEASE? WE'RE NOT QUITE READY TO VOTE YET.

SPEAKER ON THIS ITEM IS PANKAJ PATEL, SIR.

AND IF YOU COULD GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE.

GOOD EVENING, HONORABLE MAYOR AND RESPECTABLE COUNCIL MEMBERS AND THE CITY STAFF.

MY NAME IS PANKAJ PATEL.

[00:25:01]

CAN I GET YOU TO PULL THAT MICROPHONE A LITTLE CLOSER TO YOU THERE? THERE WE GO. MY NAME IS PANKAJ PATEL.

I'M AN ARCHITECT FOR THE PROJECT AND OF THE, PLANNING CHIEF.

HE HAS DONE A NICE PRESENTATION.

SO IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I'LL TRY TO ANSWER IF ANY QUESTIONS ARE THERE. OK, VERY GOOD SIR.

THANK YOU, COUNCIL.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I SEE NONE, THANK YOU, SIR.

MADAM SPEAKER, DO WE HAVE ANY MORE? MADAM, MADAM SECRETARY, DO WE HAVE ANY MORE SPEAKERS.

NO. THAT IS OUR ONLY SPEAKER ON THIS ITEM.

YES, AND I JUST PROMOTED YOU TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE SO INADVERTENTLY.

BUT I THINK YOU'LL DO A GREAT JOB.

ALL RIGHT, COUNCIL, GET ME OUT OF THIS.

WE HAVE NO ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM, AND IT IS IN DISTRICT ONE.

MAYOR LEMAY, DO WE HAVE A SECOND ON THIS? AT THIS POINT, I DON'T EVEN HAVE A MOTIONS, SO.

I MAKE I MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

OK, I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN TO APPROVE THIS ITEM AS PRESENTED.

COUNCIL, IF YOU PLEASE VOTE.

AND MADAM SECRETARY IF YOU COULD DISPLAY THE VOTE PLEASE, THIS ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY. THANK YOU.

THAT BRINGS US TO ITEM 12 B.

THIS IS ACTUALLY THIS ITEM HAS TWO PARTS WITHOUT UNLESS THERE'S SOME OBJECTION, WE WILL CONSIDER THEM TOGETHER.

ITEM 12 B CONSIDER A ZONING REQUEST BY PM DESIGN FOR A DRIVE THRU RESTAURANT, RAISING

[Items 12B & 12C]

CANE'S. THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 5345 NORTH NORTH PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE IN DISTRICT ONE AND PART C, OR ITEM C TO THIS IS CONSIDER A DETAILED PLAN.

SAME APPLICANT, SAME ADDRESS.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL. THANK YOU.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR A DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANT RAISING CANE'S SPECIFICALLY.

AND MAYOR, I'LL GO AHEAD AND JUST SAY UP FRONT THIS.

THE USE IS ALREADY ALLOWED BY RIGHT, SO THAT WE COULD HAVE MADE THE GENERAL LANGUAGE A LITTLE CLEARER. BUT THE USE IS REALLY NOT UNDER CONSIDERATION.

BUT THE PD DOES REQUIRE A DETAILED PLAN THROUGH THE PUBLIC HEARING PROCESS.

SO THAT IS WHAT IS BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING.

VERY GOOD.

THE PD ALLOWS DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANTS BY BY RIGHT.

IN OTHER WORDS, HERE'S THE CASE INFORMATION.

THE LOCATION IS 5345 NORTH PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE.

SITE IS ONE POINT ONE FIVE ACRES.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

AND HERE'S A LOCATION MAP SHOWING THE MORE SPECIFICS OF THE SITE.

THIS AERIAL IS A LITTLE BIT OLD.

SO BUT FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH, THIS BUILDING IS, OF COURSE, NO LONGER THERE.

IT WAS A MEDICAL OFFICE, MEDICAL BUILDING BUILT IN 1996 I BELIEVE IT WAS CONSTRUCTED OR EXCUSE ME, DEMOLISHED IN 2019.

AND AROUND THAT TIME, THE APPLICANT HAD REQUESTED A PD TO CREATE THREE NEW TRACKS, ONE OF WHICH HAS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, DEVELOPING AS A MURPHY EXPRESS DOWN HERE TO THE SOUTH. AND OF COURSE THE SUBJECT SITE IS ONE OF THOSE SITES AS WELL.

AND THE THIRD SITE IS OVER HERE TO THE EAST.

AND AGAIN, BEFORE YOU DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANT, WHICH THE PD DOES ALLOW BY RIGHT.

HERE'S THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IDENTIFIES THIS AREA AS COMMUNITY CENTERS AND THE PROPOSED LAND USE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE COMP PLAN AND THE SURROUNDING AREA.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE SITE, SITE AND SURROUNDING AREA.

OF COURSE, YOU CAN SEE THE MURPHY EXPRESS KIND OF IN THE BACKGROUND AND A FEW OF THESE PHOTOS WHICH WOULD BE ADJACENT TO THE SITE.

I KIND OF WENT OVER THIS EARLIER WITH THIS SHOWS A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE APPROVED CONCEPT PLAN FROM THAT EXISTING PD 19-07 OUTLINED IN RED HERE IS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AT THE CORNER OF NORTH GARLAND AVENUE AND GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE.

AGAIN, THE MURPHY EXPRESS IS OVER HERE TO THE SOUTH.

AND THEN THIS SITE OVER HERE WOULD BE DEVELOPED IN THE FUTURE AND WOULD BE SUBJECT TO A DETAILED PLAN AS WELL. HERE'S THE SITE PLAN.

IT MEETS ALL GDC REQUIREMENTS, INCLUDING PARKING, BUILDING DESIGN AND LANDSCAPING.

HERE'S A LANDSCAPE PLAN HERE. IT MEETS ALL GDC REQUIREMENTS.

AND THE BUILDING ELEVATIONS MEETS ALL BUILDING DESIGN REQUIREMENTS OF THE GDC, THE

[00:30:04]

APPLICANT IS NOT REQUESTING ANY DEVIATIONS AND HERE'S THE SIGN.

THEY ARE PROPOSING A MONUMENT SIGN.

THEY INITIALLY REQUESTED A PYLON SIGN TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION, BUT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED THAT THEY ADHERE TO THE GDC AND PRESENT A MONUMENT SIGN THAT WAS A DEVIATION REQUEST DURING THE PLANNING COMMISSION HEARING.

BUT THERE ARE NO LONGER ANY DEVIATIONS AS THEY WOULD BE MEETING THE GDC, INCLUDING FOR SIGNAGE REGULATIONS.

SO THIS MONUMENT SIGN WOULD BE ALONG THE BUSH FRONTAGE.

STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST, AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL. AND AS I MENTIONED JUST A MINUTE AGO, THEY ALSO AGREED TO FOLLOW STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION DURING THAT HEARING TO PROPOSE A MONUMENT SIGN WHICH IS ALLOWED PER THE GDC RATHER THAN A PYLON SIGN.

AND MAYOR, WE MAILED OUT 20 NOTIFICATION LETTERS AND WE RECEIVED ONE IN FAVOR AND ONE IN OPPOSITION. OK.

VERY GOOD, SIR. ANY QUESTIONS, COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE. MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD ANNOUNCE OUR SPEAKERS, PLEASE.

MR. EVERETT FIELDS IS A SPEAKER ON THIS APPLICATION.

WELCOME, SIR. IF YOU COULD GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE.

YES I CAN, EVERETT FIELD 1101 CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY SOUTH ALLEN, TEXAS, 75013.

IT'S A TRICK QUESTION. YEAH, I KNOW.

GET ME EVERY TIME.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALLOWING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK ON BEHALF OF PM DESIGN AND RAISING CANE'S. WE HE PRETTY MUCH COVERED IT ALL.

WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT COMING TO THIS NORTH GARLAND AREA TO BRING Y'ALL SOME MORE CHICKEN.

SO IF THERE IS ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO ASK.

I HAVE NOTHING MORE TO SAY.

I THINK. YEAH. JUST LEAVE IT WITH WE'RE HERE TO BRING YOU MORE CHICKEN.

YES. ALL RIGHT. VERY GOOD, SIR.

COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS. THIS IS ANOTHER ONE IN DISTRICT ONE, ARE YOU PUNCHING IN? I'M NOT SEEING YOU ON MY QUEUE PANEL.

IS THAT BETTER? YEAH, GO AHEAD. YOU'RE AGAIN YOU'RE NOT SHOWING UP IN MY ON MY QUEUE, SO GO AHEAD SIR.

WELL, THE ONLY QUESTION I COULD THINK OF, WHICH I'M NOT GOING TO ASK IS WHAT'S IN THE CANE'S SAUCE? OH, HANG ON.

IT'S A SECRET. ALL RIGHT, SIR.

MOVE TO APPROVE. AND WOULD THIS BE FOR ITEMS OR ITEMS, B AND C? MAKE MAKE ME PUT MY GLASSES ON.

YES, FOR ITEMS B AND C.

ALL RIGHT. I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN TO APPROVE ITEMS B AND C, ANY DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE. MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE FOR US, PLEASE.

AND COUNCIL. AND DISPLAY THE VOTE PLEASE.

THIS ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, SIR, AND YOU MANAGED TO KEEP THE SECRET.

ALL RIGHT. THAT MOVES US ON TO ITEM 12 D CONSIDER A ZONING REQUEST BY BEAU DURHAM TO

[Items 12D & 12E]

ALLOW PYLON SIGN FOR A DRIVE THROUGH ESTABLISHMENT HTEAO.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 3428 WEST BUCKINGHAM ROAD IN DISTRICT SIX.

THIS ITEM IS ALSO HAS TWO PARTS.

ITEM 12 E CONSIDER A DETAILED PLAN.

SAME APPLICANT, SAME ADDRESS.

YES, SIR. MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR A PYLON SIGN FOR A DRIVE THROUGH ESTABLISHMENT THAT DOES UNDER CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION HTEAO.

THE LOCATION IS THIRTY FOUR TWENTY EIGHT WEST BUCKINGHAM ROAD AND THE ACREAGE OF THE SITE IS JUST OVER HALF AN ACRE.

AND THIS HTEAO WAS APPROVED LAST YEAR A SUP WAS APPROVED FOR IT.

AND AGAIN, IT'S CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

HERE'S A GENERAL LOCATION MAP NEAR JUPITER AND BUCKINGHAM.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, HERE'S THE SUBJECT SITE OUTLINED IN TEAL HERE AND THE AERIAL STILL SHOWING IT VACANT. BUT AGAIN, IS WELL UNDERWAY.

[00:35:01]

THE HTEAO THAT IS.

SURROUNDING THE AREA DIRECTLY TO THE WEST IS A WELLS FARGO BANK AT THE CORNER OF JUPITER AND BUCKINGHAM. AND TO THE SOUTHWEST IS A WALGREENS AND TO THE EAST AND SOUTH IS A VACANT PIECE OF PROPERTY. THIS SITE, ALONG WITH THE WALGREENS SITE AND THIS VACANT AREA TO THE EAST AND SOUTH, WERE ACTUALLY PART OF AN ORIGINAL PD FROM 1995, PD 95-34.

AND THAT PD HAD SOME SIGNAGE RESTRICTIONS, WHICH, WHEN LOOKING INTO IT AND CONSULTING WITH THE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE, DO STILL APPLY.

SO THE PD RESTRICTED SIGNAGE TO NO MORE THAN TWO FREESTANDING SIGNS, WHICH AT THE TIME THAT PYLON OR POLE SIGNS, OF COURSE, THE GDC NO LONGER ALLOWS POLE SIGNS, BUT IT ALLOWED UP TO TWO PYLON SIGNS FOR THE SHOPPING CENTER.

THIS PD WAS ENVISIONED FOR THIS TO BE A OVERALL SHOPPING CENTER, PERHAPS WITH SOME PAD SITES. BUT THEN IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT ANY PAD SITES THAT ARE CREATED SHALL BE LIMITED TO MONUMENT SIGNS ONLY AS FAR AS ANY TYPE OF ON THE GROUND SIGNAGE.

SO THE APPLICANT WITH THE PYLON SIGN REQUEST WOULD NEED TO DEVIATE FROM THIS PD.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA, INCLUDING THE SUBJECT PROPERTY HERE ON THE TOP LEFT.

AND HERE'S A VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, BUT IN THE FOREGROUND, YOU CAN SEE A WALGREENS SIGN, AN EXISTING WALGREENS MONUMENT SIGN HERE.

IT'S ACTUALLY NOT ON THE ACTUAL SUBJECT PROPERTY.

THIS CORNER IS SORT OF CARVED OUT HERE.

KIND OF GO BACK TO THE.

YEAH, YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE CARVE OUT.

THE EXISTING WALGREENS SIGN IS RIGHT HERE.

SO SO JUST WANTED TO SHOW THE FOREGROUND OF THAT.

THE THE APPLICANT IS, OF COURSE, PROPOSING A PYLON SIGN.

THEY DO HAVE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT WITH SOME CONVERSATIONS WITH WALGREENS ABOUT BLOCKING THEIR EXISTING MONUMENT SIGN, THEY ALSO HAVE DESIGN SOME DESIGN RELATED CONCERNS AS WELL, HAVING TWO MONUMENT SIGNS THAT CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER.

BUT OUR UNDERSTANDING IS THEY HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH NOT WANTING TO BLOCK WALGREENS AND CREATE AN INTERFERENCE THERE.

HERE'S A SITE PLAN SO YOU CAN SEE THE DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANT BUILDING WOULD BE HERE.

YOU CAN SEE THE DRIVE THROUGH QUEUING HERE.

THE ACTUAL SIGN LOCATION FOR THE PYLON SIGN WOULD BE LOCATED HERE IN THIS ISLAND HERE, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY TWENTY NINE FEET, SET BACK FROM THE PROPERTY LINE AND ABOUT THIRTY SIX AND A HALF FEET SET BACK FROM THE SIDEWALK.

AND AGAIN, HERE'S YOU CAN SEE THE BOUNDARIES OF THE PROPERTY, HTEAO'S PROPERTY, THE EXISTING WALGREEN SIGN IS LOCATED HERE JUST OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES.

JUST SHOW KIND OF A BEFORE AND AFTER WHAT WAS PRESENTED TO PLAN COMMISSION VERSUS WHAT THE APPLICANT HAS REVISED AND IS PRESENTING TO YOU THIS EVENING.

THIS IS THE RENDERING OF THE PYLON SIGN SHOWED TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

IT WAS PROPOSED TO BE TWENTY TWO FEET IN HEIGHT, WHICH THAT IS THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT PER THE GDC. AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION WE'LL KIND OF GET TO THEIR RECOMMENDATION.

BUT BUT THIS IS THE NEW PROPOSED ELEVATION.

ESSENTIALLY, THEY'VE KNOCKED IT DOWN TWO FEET TO A 20 FOOT MAXIMUM PER THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION.

AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION ALSO RECOMMENDED THAT THEY CLAD THE SUPPORT COLUMNS AND MASONRY OR SOME KIND OF DECORATIVE BRICK.

SO THIS THIS REPRESENTS A RENDERING OF THE PROPOSED PYLON SIGN THIS EVENING FROM THE APPLICANT. AND HERE'S KIND OF A SIDE BY SIDE PLANNING COMMISSION.

WHAT WAS PRESENTED TO THEM ON THE LEFT AND THEN WHAT IS PROPOSED THIS EVENING.

AGAIN, THE KEY DIFFERENCE IS BEING THAT THEY'VE KNOCKED THE HEIGHT DOWN FROM TWENTY TWO FEET TO 20 FEET AND THEY'RE SHOWING THE MASONRY COVER ON THE SUPPORTING COLUMNS HERE.

THE SQUARE FOOTAGE WOULD REMAIN THE SAME.

THE SQUARE FOOTAGE WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY FOUR SQUARE FEET.

THE MAXIMUM PER THE GDC FOR A PYLON SIGN IS ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SQUARE FEET.

SO THEY WOULD COMPLY WITH THAT SQUARE FOOTAGE REQUIREMENT.

HERE'S JUST A COUPLE OF ADDITIONAL RENDERINGS THAT THE APPLICANT PROVIDED US.

JUST A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS.

SO REALLY, THE TWO ISSUES AT HAND, ONE I MENTIONED THE PD NINETY FIVE DASH THIRTY FOUR, IT ALLOWS EACH PAD SITE ONE MONUMENT SIGN, HTEAO THIS WOULD BE A PAD SITE.

MEANWHILE, UP TO TWO FREESTANDING PYLON SIGNS ARE ALLOWED FOR THE WHAT THE PD CALLS, QUOTE, SHOPPING CENTER.

[00:40:01]

SHOULD BE NOTED THAT WALGREENS ACTUALLY HAS A PYLON SIGN ON THE JUPITER SIDE.

SO THE OVERALL SITE WOULD BE ALLOWED ONE MORE PYLON SIGN.

AND THEN THE OTHER ISSUE IS ACTUALLY THE GDC WOULD NOT ALLOW A PYLON SIGN AT THIS LOCATION EITHER.

IT DOES NOT ALLOW PYLON SIGNS ON PROPERTIES WHERE THEIR ONLY ACCESS IS FROM AN ACCESS EASEMENT OR A NONPUBLIC STREET.

KIND OF GOING BACK TO THE SITE PLAN HERE.

YEAH, WELL, THIS WORKS.

YOU CAN SEE THE PROPERTY BOUNDARY HERE.

THEIR MAIN POINT OF ACCESS IS FROM THIS SHARED DRIVEWAY ACCESS HERE.

SO IT'S NOT TECHNICALLY NOT ON SITE.

SO THAT IS ANOTHER DEVIATION THAT THE APPLICANT WOULD NEED.

THAT IS FROM THE GDC.

SO STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION HAS BEEN DENIAL OF THIS REQUEST.

OF COURSE, A MONUMENT SIGN WOULD BE ALLOWED ON THE SITE WITHOUT THE NEED FOR ANY DEVIATIONS FROM THE PD OR THE GDC.

HOWEVER, IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE PYLON SIGN, AS PROPOSED BY THE APPLICANT, HAS BEEN IMPROVED PER THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION, AND I MENTIONED IT EARLIER.

BUT HERE THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION WITH THE NINE TO ZERO VOTE, THEY VOTED APPROVAL OF THE PYLON SIGN WITH THE CONDITION THAT THE SIGN IS LIMITED TO NO MORE THAN 20 FEET IN HEIGHT AND THAT THE SUPPORT COLUMNS ARE COVERED WITH DECORATIVE BRICK.

AND THEY APPROVED RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE DETAILED PLANS WITH THE SAME CONDITIONS.

AND THE APPLICANT CONCURS WITH THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION AND AS I SHOWED EARLIER, HAS REVISED THEIR SIGN.

ACCORDING TO THAT RECOMMENDATION.

WE MAILED OUT TWENTY SEVEN NOTIFICATION LETTERS ON THIS CASE AND WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY RESPONSES. SO.

VERY GOOD SIR. ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE, SIR. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD CALL OUR SPEAKERS, PLEASE.

WE HAVE TWO SPEAKERS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK TONIGHT, BEAU DURHAM AND SCOTT DORETTI.

WELCOME, GENTLEMEN, IF YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAMES AND ADDRESSES FOR THE RECORD IN ANY ORDER YOU CHOOSE. 5803 74TH STREET, LUBBOCK, TEXAS,79424.

SCOTT DORETTI, 5111.

LEE HUDSON, SACHSE, TEXAS 75048.

VERY GOOD, SIR. WILL, THANK YOU FOR THAT PRESENTATION, COUNCILMAN.

WE'RE VERY EXCITED TO COME TO YOUR MUNICIPALITY.

WE SHOULD BE OPEN NEXT MONTH AND WE'D INVITE YOU ALL TO OUR GRAND OPENING, GET YOU A GLASS OF TEA AND FIND YOUR FAVORITE.

WE WOULD ASK YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS PROPOSAL SIGNAGE.

WE'RE A CONVENIENCE DRIVEN CONCEPT AND AS WILL ALLUDED TO, WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH WALGREENS IN WRITING. WE WILL NOT BLOCK THEIR SIGNAGE WITH ONE OF OUR SIGNS, WHICH I'VE BEEN ON THE PHONE WITH THEM SINCE I PUT THE SITE UNDER CONTRACT TO TRY TO WORK SOMETHING OUT WITH THEM. AND WE WEREN'T ABLE TO COME TO A CONCLUSION.

WE WEREN'T ABLE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT.

AND SO THIS IS THIS THIS IS THE THIS THIS PYLON IS THE WAY THAT WE CAN PROMOTE OUR BUSINESS. AND AGAIN, SIGNAGE IS A BIG PART OF OUR OF OUR BUSINESS BEING A CONVENIENCE DRIVEN CONCEPT. VERY GOOD, SIR.

VERY GOOD. ANY QUESTIONS, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS? THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. GOOD EVENING, GENTLEMEN.

MR. GUERIN, WOULD YOU PUT THE SITE PLAN BACK UP FOR US, PLEASE? I'VE GOT A QUESTION. HERE WE GO.

THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN, MR. GUERIN TALKED ABOUT ONE OF YOUR CONCERNS WAS THE OBSTRUCTION OF THE WALGREEN'S SIGN.

CAN YOU WALK ME THROUGH AND.

AND BASED BASED ON PROXIMITY.

CAN YOU CAN YOU TALK A BIT ABOUT THAT? I'M TRYING TO I'M TRYING TO SEE HERE, THE.

WHAT IF? IF YOU'RE GOING WITH THE MONUMENT, I'M TRYING TO SEE FROM HERE WE WERE WITH THE WHERE'S YOUR CONSTRUCTION? WHERE'S YOUR OBSTRUCTION? CAN'T EVEN SAY THE WORD. WHERE'S YOUR OBSTRUCTION? CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT FROM THE SITE PLAN? ABSOLUTELY. YEAH. SO YOU CAN SEE THERE WHERE THE WALGREENS SIGN IS JUST OUTSIDE OF OUR PROPERTY LINE. AND SO WE CANNOT PUT OUR MONUMENT SIGN ANY ANYWHERE THAT WOULD BLOCK IT ON BUCKINGHAM. AND SO PER THE PER, THE SIGN COMMITTEE OR THE THE DIVISION IN THE CITY, YOU KNOW, WE COULD PUT IT UP LIKE FIVE

[00:45:07]

FEET TO THE ROAD.

BUT PER OUR AGREEMENT WITH WALGREENS, WE CANNOT.

WE CAN'T GET ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THEIR SIGN AND THEY SWING A PRETTY BIG STICK.

THEY'LL SEND THEIR ATTORNEYS OUR WAY IF WE BLOCK THEIR SIGN IN ANY WAY FROM BUCKINGHAM ROAD. AND SO IF WE WERE TO GO WITH A MONUMENT SIGN, WE'D HAVE TO PUSH IT BACK AND PROBABLY PUT IT WHERE THAT PYLON IS.

AND AT THAT POINT, YOU KNOW, A SHORTER MONUMENT SIGN IS NOT GOING TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR OUR BUSINESS. AND OUR CONCERN IS IT WOULD LOOK A LITTLE FOOLISH AS WELL TO HAVE TWO MONUMENTS. AND OURS NOT BEING VERY VISIBLE AT ALL UNLESS YOU'RE RIGHT UP ON THE SITE, IN WHICH CASE, YOU KNOW, OUR BUILDING'S GOING TO BE JUST AS JUST AS VISIBLE.

IT WOULD SERVE AS THE SIGNAGE.

THE PYLON ACTUALLY GETS US SOME VISIBILITY FROM SOME DISTANCE, OK, AND ALSO ON.

AND HE DIDN'T KNOW HE'S GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS MR. GUERIN. CAN YOU USE TO POINTER TO THE POINT OF ENTRY AND ACCESS TO THIS PROPERTY AS IT RELATES TO WALGREEN? THE ACCESS ACCESS POINT, PLEASE? YES, SIR. THIS SO THAT ACCESS OUT TO BUCKINGHAM, OF COURSE, WOULD BE HERE AND YOU CAN ENTER HTEAO FROM THIS SITE.

BUT I BELIEVE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG GUYS BUT I BELIEVE THE SHARED ACCESS DRIVE CONTINUES ALL THE WAY AROUND.

YES, SIR. ACTUALLY, I MAY BE ABLE TO GO TO A DIFFERENT SLIDE WHICH.

YEAH, THIS SHOWS THAT BETTER.

HERE'S THE ACCESS DRIVE, WHICH CONTINUES ON TO WALGREENS.

AND OF COURSE, WALGREENS HAS A COUPLE OF AVAILABLE DRIVEWAYS OUT TO JUPITER.

OK, SO THE PRIMARY ACCESS IS BUCKINGHAM? OK. AND FROM JUPITER? IT WOULDN'T BE YOU KNOW, WE FORESEE MOST PEOPLE GOING ON JUPITER, TURNING RIGHT ON BUCKINGHAM AND COMING DIRECTLY IN FROM BUCKINGHAM, BUT YOU COULD GET THERE IF YOU GO AROUND THROUGH WALGREEN'S PARKING LOT.

WE DON'T FORESEE MUCH OF THAT, THOUGH.

OK. AND YOU AND ACCORDING TO THIS.

YOU'RE BUILDING FRONTS.

BUCKINGHAM. RIGHT, THAT'S GREAT, RIGHT.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. THANK YOU.

ANY EXCUSE ME, ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? AND I BELIEVE YOU ALSO TRIED TO SHARE THIS THE EXISTING MONUMENT SIGN WITH WALGREENS.

WE TRIED EVERY SOLUTION.

THEY WERE THEY WERE LIKE, THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN DO ANYTHING TO OUR SIGN ON OUR PROPERTY IS, WELL, IS IT GOING TO STAY EXACTLY WHERE IT IS.

AND IF IT'S A PYLON, WE'LL COME ON A PYLON WITH YOU RIGHT THERE.

AND OBVIOUSLY, IT'S BEING SO CLOSE TO THE ROAD, WE WERE GOING TO HIT THE OVERHEAD LINES.

SO THAT WAS NOT GOING TO BE A VIABLE SOLUTION.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD HAVE HAD SOME I THINK WE WOULD HAVE EVEN MORE ISSUES WITH WITH THE CITY BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE OBSTRUCTED TRAFFIC AND SOME OTHER THINGS AS WELL.

SO THAT WAS THEIR.

THAT WAS THEIR OUR WAY OR THE HIGHWAY.

AND SO WE WEREN'T ABLE TO GET THAT DONE, UNFORTUNATELY.

OK, VERY GOOD. I DON'T HAVE ANYONE ELSE IN THE QUEUE.

AND I GUESS BEFORE WE GO TO A VOTE, WE'LL ASK, DO YOU HAVE ANY SECRET INGREDIENTS WE NEED TO DISCUSS? GEORGIA PEACH.

THE GEORGIA PEACH IS.

YES, NOT SO SECRET, BUT IT HAS TWO INGREDIENTS.

PEACH AND TEA. THAT'S RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. VERY GOOD. COUNCILMAN VERA.

THIS IS IN YOUR DISTRICT, SIR.

YOU PUNCH IN SO I CAN QUEUE YOU UP.

THANK YOU, SIR. GO AHEAD.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. I'LL MAKE A MOTION THAT WE APPROVE THIS.

OK, AND THAT WOULD BE FOR ITEMS, D AND E.

COMBINATION.

VERY GOOD. I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA TO APPROVE ITEMS D AND E AND I HAVE A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION, IF NOT, MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE FOR US.

COUNCIL. AND DISPLAY THE VOTE.

THIS ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN. EXCITED TO BE HERE.

ALL RIGHT, YEAH, ICE TEA AND CHICKEN TONIGHT, I THINK WE'VE GOT WE'VE GOT THE MAKINGS OF A PRETTY GOOD THING GOING HERE.

ALL RIGHT. THAT BRINGS US TO ITEM 12 F ZONING FILE, NUMBER Z 21-04 MVAH PARTNERS IN

[12F. Zoning File No. Z 21-04, MVAH Partners (District 8)]

DISTRICT EIGHT. AS NOTE THIS ITEM WAS APPROVED AT THE MAY 18, 2021 REGULAR CITY COUNCIL MEETING WITH THE CONDITION THAT THE ORDINANCE BE BROUGHT BACK AT A LATER DATE AS A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT WITH DETAILED PLAN.

YES SIR MAYOR AND THIS IS THAT ORDINANCE, AS YOU MENTIONED, YOU ALL, IF YOU MAY RECALL, APPROVED IT ON YOUR MAY 18TH AGENDA.

[00:50:02]

THE PUBLIC HEARING WAS HELD THEN AND IT WAS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY, BUT WITH THE CONDITION THAT THE ORDINANCE IS BROUGHT BACK AS A PD AND DETAILED PLAN.

SO THIS IS BEING PRESENTED TO YOU THIS EVENING.

AS A REMINDER, IT IS A PROPOSAL FOR ONE HUNDRED SIX DWELLING UNITS, APARTMENT COMPLEX.

THE LOCATION IS 1102 NORTH SHILOH ROAD.

THE SITE IS JUST UNDER 12 ACRES.

HERE'S A GENERAL LOCATION OF THE AREA, THE SUBJECT SITE AND SHILOH ROAD.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, IT IS LOCATED HERE KIND OF NORTH OF THE VA HOSPITAL AREA.

BUT THE SUBJECT SITE IS OUTLINED IN TEAL HERE.

CURRENTLY, IT'S A COMBINATION OF COMMUNITY OFFICE AND INDUSTRIAL ZONING.

AND THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGE PRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE SUPPORTIVE HOUSING FOR VETERANS AND HOUSING FOR EMPLOYEES AT THE NEARBY VA HOSPITAL.

SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA INCLUDED THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, THE TOP LEFT.

AND HERE'S THE SITE PLAN, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY PART OF THE DETAILED PLAN, THE BUILDING, IT WOULD BE ONE MULTIFAMILY BUILDING HERE, FOUR STORIES AND THERE'S THIS L SHAPED.

YOU CAN SEE THE PARKING AREAS.

THERE ARE TWO DRIVEWAYS IN AND OUT OF THE SITE ALONG NORTH SHILOH ROAD.

AND THIS RED AREA HERE REPRESENTS A TRAIL THE APPLICANT WOULD BE CONSTRUCTING.

IT MEETS THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS OF THE GDC.

LANDSCAPE PLAN HERE, SHOWING SOME LANDSCAPING ON THE SITE.

AND THE APPLICANT MEETS THE LANDSCAPING REQUIREMENTS OF THE GDC WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE SCREENING ITEM, WHICH WE'LL GET TO HERE IN A MINUTE.

JUST SOME AMENITIES THAT THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROVIDING, SOME BARBECUE GRILLS, BENCHES, SOME DOG PARK FEATURES.

AND HERE'S A SHOT OF THE SCREENING.

THEY WOULD HAVE AN ORNAMENTAL SIX FOOT ORNAMENTAL METAL FENCE WITH MASONRY COLUMNS.

AND HERE, THE ELEVATIONS AGAIN, IT'S A FOUR STORY BUILDING WITH ONE HUNDRED AND SIX DWELLING UNITS. JUST KIND OF RUN THROUGH THESE HERE.

SO AS PART OF THE PD ORDINANCE, THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TWO DEVIATIONS FROM THE GDC, THE FIRST BEING BUILDING HEIGHT, THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT REQUIREMENT OF THE GDC IS 40 FEET.

THAT'S IN THE MULTIFAMILY ZONING DISTRICT.

THE PROPOSAL IS THE PROPOSED HEIGHT IS 51.75 FEET.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING THIS TO ALLOW FOUR STORIES IN HEIGHT.

HOWEVER, IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES IS FAIRLY MINIMAL.

AND IT'S ALSO WORTH NOTING THAT THE OVERALL DENSITY IS STILL PRETTY LOW.

IT'S JUST UNDER NINE ACRES OR EXCUSE ME, NINE UNITS PER ACRE, WHEREAS THE MAXIMUM DENSITY IS 18 UNITS PER ACRE IN THE STANDARD MULTIFAMILY ZONING DISTRICT.

SO THEY'RE KIND OF CLUSTERING THE ONE BUILDING INTO FOUR FOUR STORIES.

BUT THE OVERALL DENSITY, AGAIN, IS VERY LOW.

SCREENING BETWEEN MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT AND SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS, I'LL KIND OF GO BACK TO A MAP HERE SHOWING THE ZONING.

IT IS ADJACENT TO TWO RESIDENTIAL ZONING DISTRICTS.

SO THE GDC DOES HAVE SOME ADDITIONAL SCREENING REQUIREMENTS BETWEEN MULTIFAMILY AND ADJACENT SINGLE FAMILY ZONING BOUNDARIES.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A DEVIATION THERE, LARGELY DUE TO SOME FLOODPLAIN ISSUES.

ONCE YOU KIND OF GET INTO THE SITE TOWARDS THE EAST, IT GETS INTO FEMA FLOOD PLAINS.

SO THE FENCING WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT CLOSER INTO THE SITE RATHER THAN ALONG THE BOUNDARIES, WHICH IS, AGAIN, FLOODPLAIN.

IT'S ALSO VERY HEAVILY TREED.

SO THERE'S SOME LOGISTICAL ISSUES THERE, OBVIOUSLY.

AND IN ADDITION TO THE ORNAMENTAL FENCE SCREENING, THE GDC REQUIRES SOME SHRUBS ALONG THAT FENCE LINE. SO THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROVIDING SHRUBS ALONG THE NORTHERN BOUNDARY OF THE SITE FACING THE CHURCH, WHICH IS ZONED RESIDENTIAL BUT BUT NOT ALONG THE AREAS.

ONCE YOU START GETTING TO THE FLOODPLAIN IN THE AREAS THAT ARE REALLY FACING ONLY FACING TREES ANYWAY, AND PLUS YOU'D BE GETTING INTO THEIR AMENITY, ONSITE AMENITY AREAS AS WELL.

I SHOWED THE TRAIL AND WHATNOT EARLIER.

SO STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE ORDINANCE AS PRESENTED.

AND MAYOR, THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU. VERY GOOD SIR.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE. MADAM SECRETARY, I BELIEVE WE DO HAVE SOME SPEAKERS.

TWO SPEAKERS REGISTERED MR. DARREN W.

SMITH AND MR. DAVID GREER.

VERY GOOD. OK,

GENTLEMEN, WELCOME. IF YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAME, NAMES AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE. DARREN SMITH, 8506.

VERY GOOD. THANK YOU, SIR. PLEASURE SEEING YOU IN PERSON VERSUS A ZOOM SCREEN.

SECOND OF ALL, I'M HUNGRY. I JUST DROVE IN FROM AUSTIN SO I COULD MAKE IT ON TIME.

SO THIS IS KIND OF TOUGH TO HEAR.

CHICKEN AND YOU KNOW, GEORGIA PEACH TEA.

YES. BUT WITH THAT BEING SAID, I DID HAVE A PRESENTATION, BUT YOU'VE SEEN IT LIKE THREE OR FOUR TIMES. AND, YOU KNOW, I'LL ROLL IT OUT AGAIN IF YOU'D LIKE.

BUT IF NOT, WE'RE JUST GRATEFUL TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A SITE THAT IS PRETTY MUCH FLOODPLAIN, COMBINE IT WITH THE BAYLOR SCOTT AND WHITE SITE AND CARVE OUT A COMMERCIAL PARCEL THAT WILL BE LEFT THERE THAT, YOU KNOW, WE CAN HAVE FRONTAGE ON SHILOH AND I THINK BETTER UTILIZE BOTH PARCELS.

SO WE'RE JUST GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE AND PRESENT THE OPPORTUNITY TO YOU.

VERY GOOD, SIR. ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I HAVE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE, SIR.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE YOU IN THE QUEUE, BUT GO AHEAD.

I THINK THE MIC IS ON.

YOUR MIC IS ACTIVATED, SO GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT, GUYS, FIRST.

THANK YOU. YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN AN AMAZING PARTNER TO WORK WITH.

AND WE'RE GOING TO DO SOME GOOD THINGS IN THAT AREA.

AND ON THE EASTERN SIDE, WE KNOW THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LINEAR PARK AT SOME POINT THAT WILL CONNECT AND WITH YOUR SITE.

AND SO I'M PERFECTLY COOL WITH THE THE LACK OF SCREENING VEGETATION THERE.

PLUS, AS STAFF SAID, THERE WAS A THERE'S A LARGE AMOUNT OF FOLIAGE BETWEEN YOU GUYS AND THE HOA ACROSS THE CREEK.

SO THAT'S GOOD. THE THE HEIGHT, NOT AN ISSUE BECAUSE AGAIN, WE'VE LOOKED AT ALL THE LINES OF SIGHT AND YOU GUYS ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM ANY OTHER RESIDENTIAL THAT I'M NOT ANTICIPATING ANY PROBLEMS. SO AS YOU SAID, WE'VE ALL SEEN THIS BEFORE.

AND COUNCIL, I WANT TO EXTEND MY THANK YOU TO YOU GUYS FOR YOUR PATIENCE ON THIS.

WE KIND OF I KIND OF BROUGHT THIS IN THE WRONG WAY, BUT WE GOT IT SQUARED AWAY.

AND I'M GLAD YOU GUYS HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT A DETAILED PLAN AND APPROVE THIS.

SO WITH THAT SAID, MAYOR, I WILL MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM TWO F AS PER OR 12 F AS PRESENTED. VERY GOOD.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER MOORE TO APPROVE ITEM TWELVE F AS PRESENTED.
