[Plan Commission Pre Meeting]

[00:00:21]

AND AND DISCUSS THE AGENDA WITH OUR FINE CITY OF GARLAND STAFF.

FOLLOWING THIS PRE MEETING, WE WILL HAVE A BRIEF INTERMISSION BEFORE OUR REGULAR MEETING, WHICH BEGINS AT SEVEN O'CLOCK.

OUR FIRST ITEM IS TO DISCUSS THE CONSENT AGENDA.

ALL ITEMS UNDER THIS SECTION ARE RECOMMENDED FOR APPROVAL BY A SINGLE MOTION OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION WITHOUT DISCUSSION IN THE REGULAR MEETING.

OUR CONSENT AGENDA TONIGHT IS MINUTES AS 1A.

CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE PLANNED COMMISSION MINUTES FOR OCTOBER 14TH 2021.

2A P21-31 CANAAN CHURCH ADDITION REPLAT AND 3A IMPACT FEE REPORT.

COMMISSIONERS WERE THERE ANY ITEMS NEEDING TO BE DISCUSSED IN THE CONSENT AGENDA? COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

JUST HAD A COMMENT, I NOTICED THAT THE FEE ASSESSMENT FOR THE QUARTER DOESN'T INCLUDE MULTI-FAMILY UNITS OR BUILDINGS.

JUST WANTED TO MAKE A COMMENT ON THAT? NOTHING TO DISCUSS.

OK, SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE TO ASK STAFF TO COMMENT ON.

I HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT TO STAFF.

STAFF EXPLAINED THAT THERE WAS JUST NO COLLECTION.

COLLECTION IS PROBABLY THE WRONG WORD DONE AT THAT DURING THAT TIME.

CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONER, THAT'S CORRECT.

THERE JUST WEREN'T ANY IMPACT FEES THAT WERE ACTUALLY TO BE COLLECTED DURING THIS PARTICULAR PERIOD FOR MULTIFAMILY SPECIFICALLY.

BUT THEY NORMALLY ARE IN THE REPORT.

IT JUST SHOWED UP AS ZERO DURING THIS PERIOD.

BUT AND IMPACT FEES ARE, BY THE WAY, THEY'RE COLLECTED AT THE TIME OF BUILDING PERMITTING. SO YEAH.

THANK YOU. SURE. OK, WELL, ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR ITEMS THAT NEED TO BE DISCUSSED ON IT? AND THEN THE CHAIR.

LET'S SEE HERE, OUR NEXT ITEM TO IS WE HAVE OUR FIRST ZONING CASE, WHICH IS Z 21-19 ZONING AND A DETAILED PLAN FOR A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AND ZONING CHANGE.

MS. AHMED. HOLD ON.

THERE WE GO. HEAR ME. OK, PERFECT.

THIS IS CASE Z21-29 THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO CONSTRUCT ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY FOUR MULTIFAMILY UNITS AND 15 TOWNHOUSE STYLE MULTIFAMILY UNITS.

THIS IS A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AND A DETAILED PLAN FOR AN APARTMENT COMPLEX ON A PROPERTY ZONED PD. EIGHTY FIVE TWENTY NINE FOR A COMMUNITY RETAIL USES.

THIS IS THE CASE INFORMATION, THE ACREAGE IS APPROXIMATELY FOUR POINT FIVE FOUR ACRES.

THIS IS THE CITYWIDE LOCATION MAP THE RED STAR IDENTIFIES THE APPROXIMATE LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY. THIS IS THE LOCATION MAP, THE SUBJECT PROPERTIES OUTLINED IN THIS TEAL BLUE COLOR. IT IS ZONED FOR PD 85-29 WHICH IS MAINLY FOR COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL USES.

THE PROPERTIES TO THE NORTH ACROSS BELTLINE ROAD ARE ZONED FOR PD 80-63 AND PD 14-47.

THIS TRACT RIGHT HERE IS VACANT AND THERE IS AN APARTMENT COMPLEX.

PROPERTIES TO THE EAST ARE ZONED FOR COMMUNITY RETAIL USES AND THERE'S MAINLY RETAIL.

PROPERTIES TO THE SOUTH ARE ZONED SINGLE FAMILY SEVEN DISTRICT, AND IT'S DEVELOPED WITH SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED HOMES AND PROPERTY TO THE WEST IS ZONED MULTIFAMILY AND THERE'S AN APARTMENT COMPLEX.

THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP OF THE INVISION GARLAND PLAN DESIGNATES THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AS COMPACT NEIGHBORHOODS.

THIS PROPOSED USE IS MORE SUITABLE WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

THE INTENT IS TO PROVIDE QUALITY HOUSING OPTIONS AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE LONG TERM VIABILITY OF EXISTING RETAIL CENTERS.

THE PROPOSED HIGHER DENSITY MULTIFAMILY BUILDING IS CLOSER TO THE PUBLIC STREET AND THE

[00:05:02]

LOWER DENSITY TOWNHOUSE STYLE UNITS ARE ABUTTING THE SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD.

THESE ARE SOME OF THE PICTURES THE TOP LEFT IS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM BELT LINE ROAD.

THE TOP RIGHT IS EAST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, WHERE THE RETAIL SITE IS.

THE BOTTOM LEFT IS NORTH OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND THAT'S THE APARTMENT COMPLEX.

AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS WEST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, AND THAT'S ANOTHER APARTMENT COMPLEX.

AND THIS IS THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN, WHICH SHOWS A TOTAL OF ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY NINE UNITS AND ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY FOUR OF THOSE UNITS WILL BE JUST TRADITIONAL MULTIFAMILY AND THIS IS PART OF BUILDING A.

AND BUILDING B, C AND D ARE FOR TOWNHOUSE STYLE STRUCTURES, AND THOSE WILL BE A TOTAL OF 15 UNITS.

THERE IS ALSO A PROPOSED FOUR STORY PARKING GARAGE THAT'S INTEGRATED TO BUILDING A.

AND IT DOES COMPLY WITH THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS.

IT WILL BE TWO ACCESS POINTS FROM BELTLINE ROAD AND THESE TOWN HALL STYLE STRUCTURES.

THERE ALL WILL BE PART OF ONE PLATED LOT, SO IT IS CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY.

BUT THESE WILL BE JUST TOWNHOUSE STYLE, AND THE PRIMARY ENTRANCE OF THESE TOWNHOUSE UNITS WILL BE FACING SELF AND THESE GARAGES WILL ACTUALLY BE FACING THE DRIVEWAY.

SO THESE WILL HAVE THERE'S A MASONRY WALL HERE, AND THERE'S ALSO EACH FRONT YARD WILL BE ENCLOSED WITH A THREE FOOT ORNAMENTAL FENCE THERE AS WELL, AND ALL THE PEDESTRIAN PATHWAYS WILL BE LIGHTED, PER THE GDC STANDARDS.

THEY'RE ALSO PROPOSING AMENITIES, WHICH WILL COMPLY WITH GDC STANDARDS.

THIS IS THE SWIMMING POOL AND THE INTERIOR COURTYARD AND THEN THE CLUBHOUSE.

AND THERE'S A ROOFTOP LOUNGE WHERE MY CURSOR IS THERE PROPOSING.

AND THEN THIS IS THE DARK PARK WITH SOME OUTDOOR FURNITURE.

AND IT ALSO COMPLIES WITH THE DWELLING UNIT AND SIZE MIX.

ANOTHER THING TO NOTE IS THE SETBACK FOR THE TOWNHOUSE UNITS WHICH WILL BE ACTUALLY 20 FOOT SETBACK FROM THE ACTUAL TOWNHOUSE UNIT TO THE PROPERTY LINE TO THE SOUTH.

AND THAT IS A DEVIATION THAT THEY'RE REQUESTING, AND I'LL GO OVER THAT DEVIATION JUST A BIT. THIS IS THE PROPOSED LANDSCAPE PLAN, THE MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT REQUIRES 40 PERCENT OF THAT SITE TO BE LANDSCAPED.

AND THIS LANDSCAPE PLAN SHOWS THIRTY FOUR PERCENT.

SO THAT IS A DEVIATION THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING, AND THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE PARKING GARAGE, WHICH YIELDS LESS LANDSCAPED AREA.

AND THE GDC ALSO REQUIRES THE THE PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH TO BE SCREENED.

SO THEY ARE PROPOSING THIS SIX FOOT MASONRY WALL IN BETWEEN THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AND THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT TO THE SOUTH.

AND SCREENING IS NOT REQUIRED TO THE EAST AND TO THE WEST, BUT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING A SIX FOOT ORNAMENTAL FENCE ALONG WITH VEGETATION ALONG THE EASTERN AND WESTERN PERIMETER LINE. THIS IS THE ORNAMENTAL FENCE, AND THIS IS THE MASONRY WALL.

AND THEY'LL ALSO BE PROPOSING THIS IS THE ORNAMENTAL FENCE, THE SIZE, WHICH IS FOR THE EASTERN WESTERN PERIMETER LINE.

AND THEY'RE USING THE SAME FENCE FOR THE THREE FOOT ALONG FOR THE TOWNHOUSE UNITS.

THESE ARE SOME AMENITIES, THIS IS FOR THE SWIMMING POOL AREA.

THE DOG PARK AND THE ROOFTOP LOUNGE.

THESE ARE THE BUILDING ELEVATIONS.

AND IT DOES COMPLY WITH THE ARCHITECTURAL REQUIREMENTS AND THE ARTICULATION STANDARDS, PER THE GDC, AND THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT ALLOWED FOR MULTIFAMILY IS 40 FEET.

AND FOR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THIS DEVELOPMENT, THE APPLICANT PROPOSES FIFTY NINE FEET, AND THAT IS A DEVIATION THAT THEY'RE REQUESTING.

THIS IS THE WEST AND THE SOUTH ELEVATION.

THIS IS THE PARKING GARAGE, WHICH IS PART OF BUILDING A.

AND THE SOUTHERN PORTION IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE FORTY FIVE FEET.

THESE ARE THE ELEVATIONS FOR THE TOWNHOUSE STYLE STRUCTURES.

THIS IS THE GARAGE WHICH WILL BE FACING THE NORTH AND THEN THERE IS A PATIO AND THEN THERE IS A TERRACE FOR EACH UNIT.

[00:10:05]

HERE IS JUST A SCREENING WALL ELEVATIONS.

AND HERE'S THE SUMMARY TABLE OF ALL THE DEVIATIONS REQUESTED, THE FIRST ONE IS FOR THE BUILDING HEIGHT. THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED IS 40 FEET AND THE PROPOSED FOR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF BUILDING A IS FIFTY NINE FEET.

AND FOR THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF BUILDING A IS FORTY FIVE FEET, AND THE ADDITIONAL HEIGHT IS NECESSARY TO ACCOMMODATE THE DENSITY AND THE STRUCTURED PARKING.

THE SECOND ONE IS FOR THE DENSITY, AND THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED IS EIGHTEEN DWELLING UNITS PER ACRE. THE APPLICANT PROPOSES FORTY FOUR DWELLING UNITS PER ACRE AND THE PROPOSED DENSITY SUPPORTS A STRUCTURED PARKING GARAGE, ELEVATORS AND A RANGE OF HIGH QUALITY AMENITIES.

ADDITIONALLY, THE LOWER DENSITY TOWNHOUSE STYLE UNITS ARE STRATEGICALLY LOCATED ADJACENT TO THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE SOUTH.

THE NEXT ONE IS THE BUILDING SET BACK FROM THE SOUTHERN PERIMETER AND THE GDC STATES, WHERE A MULTIFAMILY DISTRICT IS LOCATED ADJACENT TO THE SINGLE FAMILY DISTRICT.

THE REAR SETBACK MUST BE 1.25 TIMES THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF EACH BUILDING OR A MAXIMUM OF 50 FEET. AND BASED ON THAT CALCULATION, THE TOWNHOUSE STYLE UNITS MUST MAINTAIN A REAR SETBACK OF FORTY THREE POINT THREE FEET, AND THE APPLICANT PROPOSES 20 FEET.

AND THE APPLICANT CONTENDS THE TOWNHOUSE STYLE RESIDENCES WOULD PROVIDE A COMPATIBLE TRANSITION TO THE SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED RESIDENCE TO THE SOUTH.

THEY'RE ALSO PROPOSING THAT SOLID MASONRY WALL WITH A ROW OF LARGE TREES, WHICH WILL PROVIDE A SEPARATION BETWEEN THE PROPERTIES.

IN ADDITION, THE INDIVIDUALLY PLATED LOTS TOWNHOUSE LOTS REQUIRE A FIVE FOOT SETBACK, REAR SETBACK PER THE GDC, AND BECAUSE THIS IS PART OF ONE SINGLE LOT, IT'S CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY, BUT IT'S 20 FEET.

AND THE LAST DEVIATION IS FOR LANDSCAPING.

THE GDC REQUIRES THE MINIMUM OF 40 PERCENT TO BE LANDSCAPED, AND THEY'RE PROPOSING THIRTY FOUR PERCENT AND THE PROPOSED PARKING GARAGE YIELDS LESS LANDSCAPED AREA.

STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE CHANGE IN ZONING FOR A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT, 85-20 FOR A COMMUNITY RETAIL USES TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT FOR MULTIFAMILY USE AND APPROVAL OF A DETAILED PLAN FOR MULTIFAMILY USE.

WE DID MAIL OUT NOTIFICATION LETTERS.

SIXTY FOUR LETTERS WERE MAILED OUT AND ONE WAS IN FAVOR OF THE REQUEST WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

TWO WERE OPPOSED WITHIN A NOTIFICATION AREA AND WE RECEIVED A TOTAL OF THREE RESPONSES.

BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER DALTON.

I THINK YOU REQUESTED.

THANK YOU. HAVING THE FRONT OF THOSE TOWNHOMES THAT ARE SOUTH FACING INTO A MASONRY WALL TO ME IS JUST INVITING TROUBLE.

PEOPLE GOING BACK THERE DOING WHATEVER, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THAT'S GOING TO BE EASY TO GET THROUGH. THAT TROUBLES ME A LITTLE BIT.

SECONDLY, HAVING THOSE BUILDINGS AS TALL AS THEY'RE GOING TO BE THAT CLOSE TO A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD ALSO TROUBLES ME HAVE THOSE THINGS BEEN DISCUSSED? YES, WE HAVE DISCUSSED THOSE WITH THE APPLICANT AND THE APPLICANT CAN EXPAND ON THE IDEA BEHIND THIS LAYOUT THAT THEY'RE PROPOSING, BUT THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO PROCEED WITH. OK, THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

GOOD EVENING. NUMBER ONE I'D LIKE TO SECOND COMMISSIONER DALTON'S FIRST COMMENT.

MY FIRST QUESTION IS ABOUT A TRAFFIC IMPACT.

SO IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S PRETTY MUCH ONE WAY IN ONE WAY OUT AND THAT'S GOING TO BE TO AND FROM BELTLINE. DO WE KNOW IF THAT'S GOING TO IMPACT TRAFFIC ALONG THAT ROUTE, ESPECIALLY FOR THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY AT ALL OR? THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT DID TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND THEY LOOKED AT ALL THE NUMBERS AND THEY WERE OK WITH IT.

OK. AND MY SECOND QUESTION IS REALLY KIND OF WE'VE HAD PREVIOUS CASES WHERE THE CITY COUNCIL WAS KIND OF OPPOSED TO OVERLY DENSE DEVELOPMENTS.

SO IN LOOKING AT HOW TO APPROACH THIS PARTICULAR ONE, I JUST WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT I UNDERSTAND KIND OF WHAT'S GOING ON.

I WAS LOOKING AT THE ANALYSIS FOR THE DEVIATIONS, THE REASONING, AND IT SEEMED KIND OF

[00:15:01]

CIRCUITOUS TO ME.

I DIDN'T QUITE UNDERSTAND WHY THE DEVIATIONS WERE WAS SO DRASTIC AND AND HOW IT WAS THAT THE BUILDING HEIGHT, FOR EXAMPLE, WAS A REASON FOR THE NEED FOR A STRUCTURED GARAGE OR FOR A NUMBER OF THE OTHER AMENITIES THAT JUST DIDN'T QUITE MAKE SENSE TO ME.

AND I THINK I'M GOING TO ASK THE APPLICANT ABOUT IT.

BUT DOES DOES THE CITY HAVE ANY, YOU KNOW, REGARD FOR MAYBE A PRIVATE PARK FOR THE BACK THREE, THE THREE TRADITIONAL HOMES AS OPPOSED TO ADDITIONAL BUILDINGS, AND HOW THAT PRIVATE PARK MIGHT IMPACT THE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES THAT ARE DIRECTLY BEHIND IT, AS OPPOSED TO HAVING SOMETHING THAT'S JUST SO CLOSE TO THOSE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES? I KNOW THE SETBACK RULES ARE PRETTY FLEXIBLE, IT SEEMS, SO I JUST WANT TO FIND THE CITY'S KIND OF SOFT, SPOT THERE.

WE HAVEN'T DISCUSSED A PRIVATE PARK OPTION WITH THE APPLICANT, BUT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DISCUSS WITH THEM AND SEE IF THERE'S SOMETHING THAT THEY'RE INTERESTED IN.

YEAH THE SETBACK REQUIREMENT BEING LOWERED TO SUCH EXTREME AMOUNT, JUST IT COMPORTS A NONRESIDENTIAL USE ON A RESIDENTIAL USE, SO IT REALLY SEEMS TO TOTALLY GET RID OF THE REQUIREMENT THROUGH THE GDC.

SO I JUST WANT TO KIND OF FIND OUT HOW TO MAKE IT WORK.

THANK YOU. WERE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? AND THANK YOU.

OUR SECOND ZONING CASE IS IT'S A TWO PART SUP AND DETAILED PLAN, SPECIAL USE PROVISION FOR IT'S Z21-34 SPECIAL USE PROVISION FOR A DRIVE THRU AND A DETAILED PLAN.

MR. DE LA VEGA, TAKE IT AWAY.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING, PLANNING COMMISSION.

THIS IS A ZONING CASE 21-34.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING TO BUILD A NEW STARBUCKS WITH A DRIVE THRU.

THIS REQUIRES THE APPROVAL OF AN SUP AS WELL AS A DETAILED PLAN FOR SUCH DEVELOPMENT.

THE SITE IS LOCATED AT 5300 NORTH GARLAND AVENUE.

THE PROPOSED STARBUCKS SITE WOULD BE ZERO POINT SEVEN EIGHT ACRES.

IT IS WITHIN PD 13-02, WHICH IS FOR COMMUNITY RETAIL USES.

THIS MAP GIVES YOU A GENERAL IDEA WHERE THE SITE IS LOCATED WITHIN THE CITY.

HERE'S A LOCATION MAP, AS YOU CAN SEE MOST OF THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES ARE IN RED.

THAT MEANS THEY ARE ZONED FOR COMMUNITY RETAIL AND IN FACT, MOST OF THESE PROPERTIES ARE DEVELOPED WITH RETAIL RESTAURANTS, PERSONAL SERVICES AND THOSE KIND OF USES.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN RECOMMENDS COMMUNITY CENTERS.

IT IS BASICALLY IT ALLOWS AN ARRAY OF LAND USES, INCLUDING RETAIL RESTAURANT OFFICE USES, PERSONAL SERVICE USES, TYPICALLY ALONG MAJOR ROADS AND MAJOR INTERSECTIONS.

AS SUCH, THE PROPOSED STARBUCKS DEVELOPMENT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE RECOMMENDED USES FOR COMMUNITY CENTERS.

HERE'S AN IMAGE OF THE PROPERTY FROM GARLAND AVENUE.

THE ARROW THAT RED ARROW KIND OF POINTS TO THE SITE WHERE THE STARBUCKS WILL BE DEVELOPED. A FEW MORE PICTURES, AGAIN, THE ONE ON THE TOP LEFT IS THE SAME PICTURE THAT WE JUST SAW. THE OTHER THREE ARE IMAGES OF THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES.

AND AGAIN, THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING TO CARVE OUT A 0.78 ACRE PAD SITE FROM THE WAL-MART PARKING AREA TO DEVELOP THIS STARBUCKS THAT WOULD HAVE THE STARBUCKS SITE THAT WOULD HAVE A BUILDING OF APPROXIMATELY TWO THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN SQUARE FEET.

AND AGAIN, IT WILL HAVE A DRIVE THRU.

HERE'S A SITE PLAN, AND HERE WITH THIS SITE PLAN, YOU CAN SEE THE LOCATION OF GARLAND AVENUE. AGAIN, THE SITE IS FRONTING GARLAND AVENUE.

[00:20:06]

YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE LOCATION OF THE PARKING AREA AND THE LOCATION OF THE BUILDING.

THE FRONT ENTRANCE WILL BE FACING GARLAND AVENUE.

THIS LAYOUT, AS PROPOSED, MEETS THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS IN THE GDC.

THIS NEXT LAYOUT IS THE LANDSCAPE LAYOUT, AND IT IS ALSO IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE GDC.

ELEVATIONS. THE ONE AT THE VERY TOP WOULD BE THE ONE FACING THE STREET.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING APPROVAL OF THIS SUP WITH NO TIME LIMIT.

I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE RECOMMENDS A RANGE OF TWENTY TO TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

THIS IS BASED ON CASES IN THE PAST FOR SIMILAR REQUESTS.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE SUP, AS WELL AS APPROVAL OF THE DETAILED PLAN FOR A RESTAURANT WITH DRIVE THRU.

REGARDING THE NOTIFICATION LETTERS THERE WERE FORTY TWO LETTERS SENT OUT, WE ONLY GOT ONE RESPONSE AND IT WAS AGAINST THEIR REQUEST.

WITH THAT, I CONCLUDE MY PRESENTATION.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.

COMMISSIONERS. LET ME START OUT WITH COMMISSIONER JENKINS AND THEN.

GOOD EVENING TWO QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

ONE THE APPLICANT IS WAL-MART.

WAL-MART REAL ESTATE IS THE APPLICANT.

WELL, NO, THE APPLICANT IS THE ENGINEERING FIRM THAT IS, I BELIEVE, WORKING FOR STARBUCKS. AND I'M SURE THAT THE OWNER HAS NO ISSUES WITH, YOU KNOW, THEY'VE ENTERED AN AGREEMENT. THERE'S NOTHING.

CORRECT AND IT WILL BE I BELIEVE IT WILL BE THE STARBUCKS SITE WILL BE A SEPARATE LOT, SEPARATE PLATTED LOT AND THERE ARE NO DEVIATIONS REQUESTED BY THE APPLICANT AS WELL.

NOT WITH THIS REQUEST, THERE WAS A SMALL DEVIATION REGARDING THE LOCATION OF THE DUMPSTER ENCLOSURE. THE GDC PROVIDES FOR ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVAL.

ACCORDING TO THE APPLICANT THEY EXHAUSTED ALL THE OPTIONS REGARDING THE PLACEMENT OF THE DUMPSTER ENCLOSURE.

WHERE IT IS BEING PROPOSED ACTUALLY THAT IS THE BEST PLACE TO COMPLY WITH ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE SERVICES REQUIREMENTS FOR ACCESSING THE DUMPSTER, AS WELL AS REQUIREMENTS FROM THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT REGARDING ON SITE TRAFFIC CIRCULATION.

HOWEVER, DUE TO THE LIMITED SIZE OF THE LOT, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO PUT IT LIKE RIGHT BEHIND THE BUILDING AS REQUIRED BY THE CODE.

HOWEVER, IT'S MEETING ALL SETBACKS REQUIREMENTS AND THE DUMPSTER ENCLOSURE IS ACTUALLY THE OPENING OF IT. IT'S ACTUALLY FACING AWAY FROM THE STREET.

OK, EXCELLENT. THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER LUCHT.

IS THERE NOT AN EXISTING STARBUCKS LOCATION RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET, ARE THEY RELOCATING? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION. WE DID ASK THAT QUESTION TO THE APPLICANT.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION AT THAT MOMENT, BUT HOPEFULLY THEY'LL HAVE THAT INFORMATION TONIGHT AND HOPEFULLY THEY'LL MIGHT BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT. THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER ROSE.

IT'S JUST A FOLLOW UP QUESTION TO THAT.

IS THERE A TIME FRAME? HAVE THEY INDICATED A TIMEFRAME WHEN THEY WANT TO BUILD THIS AND OCCUPY IT? I DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION WITH ME.

THE APPLICANT MIGHT BE ABLE TO ANSWER TO THAT.

ALL RIGHT. AND COMMISSIONER LUCHT.

I HAVE ONE MORE THING TO SAY, I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A TIME LIMIT PUT ON THAT SUP.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE AGREES, BUT ESPECIALLY IF THERE'S AN EXISTING LOCATION RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET THAT WILL REMAIN OPEN.

THAT WOULD BE PRETTY IMPORTANT, I THINK.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, OUR THIRD CASE, THIS IS A THREE PARTER.

WE HAVE Z21-40 APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 04-54 TO ALLOW A USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES, INDOOR USE AND APPROVAL OF A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION TO ALLOW A USED GOODS RETAIL SALES INDOOR USE.

GOOD EVENING AGAIN. THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO OPERATE A USED GOODS RETAIL STORE IN EXISTING TENANT SPACE.

[00:25:03]

HERE IS THE CASE INFORMATION, THE ACREAGE IS APPROXIMATELY NINE POINT NINE TWO ACRES.

THIS IS THE CITYWIDE LOCATION MAP.

THE RED STAR IDENTIFIES THE APPROXIMATE LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND IT IS NEAR THE FIRE WHEEL TOWN CENTER.

THIS IS THE LOCATION MAP, THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS OUTLINED IN THIS TEAL BLUE COLOR AND THE SUP AREA IS SHADED BLUE.

THIS ENTIRE PIECE IS ZONED PD 0454.

IT'S LOCATED THE INTERSECTION OF LAVON DRIVE AND FIREWHEEL PARKWAY, AND IT'S KNOWN AS FIREWHEEL MARKET. IT'S THE PERIPHERAL DEVELOPMENT OF FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER.

FUTURE LAND USE MAP OF THE ENVISION GARLAND PLAN DESIGNATES THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AS REGIONAL CENTERS.

AND REGIONAL CENTERS ARE AREAS WITH HIGHER CONCENTRATION OF ACTIVITY THAT SERVES AS THE DESTINATION FOR RESIDENTS AND VISITORS, AND USES WITHIN THIS DEVELOPMENT ARE TYPICALLY A MIXTURE OF RETAIL SERVICES, ENTERTAINMENT, EMPLOYMENT AND SOMETIMES RESIDENTIAL USES.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE SITE PHOTOS.

THE TOP LEFT IS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY TOP RIGHT IS LOOKING EAST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

BOTTOM LEFT IS WEST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS SOUTH OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY. THIS IS THE EXISTING LAYOUT AND THE PROPOSED TENANT SPACE IS OUTLINED IN RED, WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY THREE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY FOUR SQUARE FEET, AND THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO OPERATE A USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES AND CURRENTLY PD 0454 FOUR DOESN'T ALLOW THAT USE AN THE APPLICANT WOULD LIKE TO AMEND THAT PD TO ALLOW THIS USE BY SPECIFIC USE PROVISION ONLY, AND THEY ARE NOT INTENDING TO MAKE ANY IMPROVEMENTS ON THE PROPERTY THAT WOULD IMPACT THAT LAYOUT.

THE APPLICANT REQUEST THE SUP TO BE VALID FOR 20 YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE.

AND STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE AMENDMENT TO PD 0454 TO ALLOW USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES, INDOOR USE APPROVAL OF A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION TO ALLOW A USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES INDOORS USE AND APPROVAL OF A PLAN TO ALLOW A USED GOODS RETAIL SALES INDOOR USE.

AND WE DID MAIL OUT NOTIFICATION LETTERS.

A TOTAL OF TWENTY EIGHT LETTERS WERE MAILED OUT, AND WE ONLY RECEIVED ONE LETTER THAT WAS WITHIN A NOTIFICATION AREA AND FOR THE REQUEST.

BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

COMMISSIONER DALTON.

HELLO AGAIN. HELLO.

I RECALL IN THE PAST UP TO AND INCLUDING WHEN WE DID THE GDC, THERE WAS A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT ALLOWING USED GOODS TO BE SOLD.

THIS SPECIFICALLY BEGAN THAT I RECALL AT A INTERSECTION OF BROADWAY AND CENTERVILLE, WHERE SOMEONE WAS TRYING TO PUT IN A MARKET, AND THERE WAS A LOT OF PUSHBACK OVER USED GOODS BEING SOLD.

WHAT'S THE CHANGE HERE WHERE WHAT CHANGED FROM THEN? I'M NOT TOO FAMILIAR OF THE PAST CONVERSATIONS, BUT CURRENTLY THIS USED GOODS USE THE APPLICANT ACTUALLY REQUESTED APPLIED FOR A SIGN PERMIT AND A BUILDING PERMIT THROUGH BUILDING INSPECTIONS, AND WASN'T AWARE AT THAT TIME THAT A USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES AND RETAIL SALES ARE TWO SEPARATE USES IN THE GDC, AND THEY GOT THE PERMIT FOR A RETAIL SALES USE. AND NOW THEY FOUND OUT THAT THEY PUT THE SIGN ON THE PROPERTY AND THEY FOUND OUT THAT RETAIL SALES USED GOODS IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE PD, AND THAT'S WHY THEY CAME WITH THIS DETAILED PLAN. SORRY WITH THE PD AMENDMENT REQUEST.

HAVE WE APPROVED ANY USED GOODS SALES IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL THAT ARE IN THE CITY.

WITHIN IN THAT SAME COMPLEX YOU HAVE THE MOVIE TRADING COMPANY IT'S USED GOODS.

IT'S NOT NECESSARILY FASHION MERCHANDISE, BUT IT'S I MEAN, IT'S.

[00:30:03]

I'M NOT SURE I BELIEVE THEY'RE GONE.

ARE THEY STILL THERE? LAST I SAW A MONTH OR TWO AGO, THEY WERE.

OK. YEAH, MR. CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONER, I SEEM TO RECALL ONE, TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO THAT WAS ISSUED APPROVAL FOR RESTORE HABITAT, RESTORE.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY.

YES, SIR. YES, RIGHT? THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THIS USE CLASSIFICATION I BELIEVE THAT WAS APPROVED THERE.

WELL, IT'S ON BROADWAY. YES, SIR.

OK, OK.

THANK YOU. LET'S SEE, COMMISSIONER LUCHT.

IS THIS A CHAIN I'VE HEARD OF PLATO'S CLOSET BEFORE? YES. IT'S CLOTHING.

YES. CLOTHING MAINLY.

LIKE, NAME BRAND CLOTHING.

THAT'S KIND OF. I BELIEVE SO.

RIGHT. SO IT'S NOT LIKE A, YOU KNOW, LITTLE FLEA MARKET OR ANYTHING.

IT IS HIGH QUALITY GOODS AS FAR AS I KNOW, AND THEY HAVE OTHER LOCATIONS IN OTHER CITIES, TOO. RIGHT? THANK YOU. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A MISCELLANEOUS ITEM THAT IS GOING TO BE COMING UP AND IT'S WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDED WITH A PROPOSED CALENDAR OF PLAN COMMISSION MEETING DATES TO REVIEW.

IF THERE'S NO IMMEDIATE OBJECTIONS, WE'LL BE LOOKING FOR A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS CALENDAR FOR 2022.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY CONFLICTS ON IT? WE KNOW OF? OK.

COMMISSIONER PARIS.

THANK YOU, CHAIRMAN, I DO HAVE CONFLICTS WITH THE WEDNESDAY DATES, BUT I DID GET CLARITY FROM MR. [INAUDIBLE] THAT DUE TO SEVERAL IMPACTS, NOT JUST THE SHOT CLOCK LAW BUT JUST OTHER DYNAMICS THAT COULD IMPACT THE TIMING.

SO MY JUST FEEDBACK IS I DO HAVE CONFLICTS ON WEDNESDAYS, BUT I'M WORKING THROUGH THAT AND JUST AWARENESS FOR THE COMMISSION.

OK, THANK YOU. OK.

WELL, THAT'S ALL THAT WE HAD FOR OUR PRE MEETINGS.

OK, COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

I KNOW CITY COUNCIL WAS PLAYING WITH THE IDEA OF HAVING FLEXIBLE ARRANGEMENTS, SOME REMOTE VIEWINGS FOR CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS VERSUS SOME ATTENDING REMOTELY VERSUS SOME ATTENDING IN PERSON.

WAS THERE A RESOLUTION TO THAT DISCUSSION AND IS THAT AVAILABLE FOR BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS? I'M NOT AWARE IF THERE WAS A RESOLUTION.

MR. [INAUDIBLE], IF YOU'RE AWARE OF ANY.

I KNOW THAT'S BEING DISCUSSED YEAH, I DIDN'T SEE ANY RESOLUTION FROM THAT, BUT I KNOW THIS WAS BASED, OF COURSE, ON COUNCIL'S LAST WORK SESSION WHERE THEY DECIDED UPON THESE DATES.

OBVIOUSLY, THEY MOVED SOME DATES AROUND, SO THAT WAS KIND OF THE IMPETUS FOR MOVING SOME PLANNING COMMISSION DATES AROUND.

YES, SIR. AND ALSO, YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THIS ON THE CALENDAR, BUT OF COURSE, THE DECEMBER 26TH MEETING WE WOULD PROPOSE CANCELING IT.

I DON'T THINK THE CITY WILL EVEN BE OPEN THAT DAY, SO THAT WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THIS CALENDAR. ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. QUESTION.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? NO. WELL, THAT'S OUR FINAL AGENDA ITEM TO DISCUSS IN OUR PRE MEETING.

AND WITH NOTHING FURTHER, WE ARE IN RECESS UNTIL OUR SEVEN O'CLOCK MEETING.

SEE YOU ALL SOON. GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER 26TH REGULAR MEETING OF THE

AND THEN WITH A SHOW OF HANDS THEN THOSE IN FAVOR.

AND THOSE AGAINST.

AND ANY ABSTAINING.

RIGHT THERE. ALL RIGHT.

LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE THE MOTION? OK.

SEE ITEMS FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION.

FIRST ITEM TONIGHT IS A TWO PART, IT'S A ZONE.

[4a. Consideration of the application of Millennium Village, LP. / Masterplan, requesting approval of a Change in Zoning from Planned Development (PD) District 85-20 for Community Retail Uses to a Planned Development (PD) District for Multi-Family Use. This property is located at 1602 Belt Line Road. (District 7) (File Z 21-29 - Zoning)]

[00:40:01]

WE HAVE A REQUEST OF A CHANGE IN ZONING FROM PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 85-20 FOR COMMUNITY RETAIL USES TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT FOR MULTIFAMILY USE.

IT'S FILE NUMBER Z21-29.

AND IS THE APPLICANT WITH US? CHAIRMAN COMMISSIONERS MAXWELL FISHER WITH MASTER PLAN 2595 DALLAS PARKWAY, FRISCO, TEXAS 75034.

DO YOU HAVE A PRESENTATION YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE? WE ARE REPRESENTING PINNACLE ENGINEERING ON THIS SITE.

THE SITE HAS BEEN ZONED FOR BASICALLY COMMUNITY RETAIL FOR SEVERAL DECADES, AND IT'S REMAINED UNDEVELOPED.

PREVIOUSLY, IT WAS ZONED MULTIFAMILY AND THE OWNER AT THE TIME THOUGHT, OH, MULTIFAMILY WASN'T WORKING HERE, SO I'LL TRY RETAIL.

WELL, IT'S BEEN ZONED RETAIL FOREVER.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, AS THE MORE VIABLE, MORE VISIBLE RETAIL PROPERTIES THAT YOU HAVE AT THE [INAUDIBLE] INTERSECTION OF GARLAND AND BELTLINE AND DEVELOPED OUT, IT BASICALLY MADE THIS SITE. IT'S REMAINED UNDEVELOPED.

AND AS YOU SEE IT HERE TODAY.

IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA, THERE'S OVER TWENTY SIX ACRES OF RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL ZONING.

WHEN THAT'S OVER, BASICALLY NEARLY TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY THOUSAND RETAIL SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL. AND SO WE THINK THAT THERE'S ALREADY PLENTY OF RETAIL FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA.

AND SO WE THINK THAT CHANGING THE ZONING TO A RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT IS APPROPRIATE AND ON A SITE THAT WILL LIKELY OR WILL NEVER GO RETAIL FROM ALL INDICATIONS.

AND IT WILL JUST FURTHER SUPPORT THE RETAIL THAT IS THERE, PARTICULARLY AS YOU MOVE FORWARD WITH THE NEXT DOWNTURN OF WHAT WE HAVE.

SO HERE'S WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING.

WE'RE POSING A THREE AND FOUR STORY GARAGE WRAP PRODUCT.

THIS IS A VIEWPOINT FROM THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF THE ENTRANCE.

YOU SEE THE BUILDING'S WELL ARTICULATED.

WE HAVE PLENTY OF LANDSCAPING, AND I'LL GET INTO SOME OF THE OTHER DETAILS HERE MOMENTARILY. THIS IS A FOUR STORY ON THE FRONT.

IT'S REALLY THE FRONT OF THIRD IS FOUR STORY AND IT QUICKLY GOES TO THREE.

WE WANTED TO BE SITE SENSITIVE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF THE SOUTH, AND I'LL KIND OF GET INTO WHY WE'VE DONE WHAT WE'VE DONE AND SOME OF THE DECISIONS AND HOPEFULLY ADDRESS SOME OF THE CONCERNS THAT CAME UP PREVIOUSLY.

THERE'S 184 UNITS THAT ARE PLANNED IN THE APARTMENT BUILDING, AND THEN WE HAVE 15 TOWNHOUSE UNITS IT'LL BASICALLY BE FIVE UNITS OR TOWNHOUSE STYLE UNITS, THREE BUILDINGS, FIVE UNITS PER BUILDING.

THIS WILL HAVE ELEVATORS.

IT WILL HAVE LOTS OF AMENITIES.

THAT'S WHAT THE DENSITY AND THE FOUR STORY HEIGHT ALLOW US TO PROVIDE THOSE THINGS TO OUR RESIDENTS THAT WE WOULDN'T OTHERWISE BE ABLE TO DO.

I'VE COLOR-CODED THIS.

YOU HAVE THE FOUR STORY IN RED PARKING GARAGES IN BLUE.

YOU HAVE THREE STORIES TWO THIRDS OF THE SOUTHERN FOOTPRINT OF THE APARTMENTS, AND THEN WE TRANSITION TO EFFECTIVELY TWO STORIES FOR THE TOWNHOUSE.

I WILL TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE MORE IN DETAIL, PROVIDED THE SETBACKS FOR YOU THERE OVER, YOU KNOW, WE'RE TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY TO THREE HUNDRED FEET AWAY.

OUR FOURTH STORY IS FROM OUR RESIDENT, FROM OUR SOUTHERN BOUNDARY.

AND THEN WE ARE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FOUR FEET TO THE THREE STORY PORTION, AND THEN I'LL TALK ABOUT THAT SETBACK OF 20 FEET AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

WE DID SOME 3D MODELING ALSO THAT SHOWS THE VANTAGE POINT.

THIS IS IF YOU'RE LOOKING, GIVE YOU A VANTAGE POINT POPEYE'S AND IS BEHIND YOU TO THE RIGHT. AND SO YOU'RE LOOKING NORTHWEST.

YOU CAN SEE THE FOUR STORY STEPS TO THREE, AT LEAST SEE THE TWO OR THE TOWNHOUSES ARE PROPOSED WITHOUT THE THREE STORY OR WITHOUT THE 3D COMPONENT.

HERE'S A VIEW AT THE ENTRANCE THIS IS THE NORTHEAST CORNER LOOKING TOWARDS THE SOUTHWEST.

AGAIN, YOU CAN SEE WE'RE STEPPING IT DOWN.

OUR PARKING GARAGE IS 4 LEVELS, BUT IT'S REALLY ONLY THREE BECAUSE PARKING GARAGES ARE SHORTER. IT WILL BE TOTALLY BLOCKED BY THE BUILDING AND IN THE BACK.

WE ALSO DID A SITE SECTION TO SHOW HOW FAR THE BUILDINGS ARE FROM THE RESIDENTIAL HOUSES.

SO THE LOTS THAT ARE ACTUALLY ON THE SOUTHERN END HAVE REALLY DEEP YARDS, SO THAT PROVIDES ADDITIONAL SEPARATION.

SO WHEN WE WERE SITE PLANNING, WE TOOK THAT INTO CONSIDERATION.

SO WE THINK WE'VE TRANSITIONED THIS WELL FROM FOUR TO THREE AND THEN THE TOWNHOUSE UNITS.

[00:45:06]

LET'S SEE HERE. SO I WANT TO ZOOM IN AND TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHY WE DID WHAT WE DID IN THE BACK. SO THESE ARE TOWNHOUSE STYLE.

THEY'RE, ALL THE UNITS ARE ON ONE LOT OF RECORD, SO TECHNICALLY THEY ARE CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY. HOWEVER, THE PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE LIVING HERE, WE UNDERSTAND THEY DON'T WANT TO BE NECESSARILY PART OF THE APARTMENT BUILDING.

THEY WANT TO HAVE SOME PRIVACY.

SO WE WANTED TO CREATE THAT SINGLE FAMILY PRIVACY FEEL.

AND THE ONLY WAY WE COULD DO THAT REALLY IS TO TURN AND HAVE OUR SORT OF OUR FRONT YARD FACING THE BACK.

AND SO THAT WAY YOU SORT OF SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM THE TALLER APARTMENT BUILDING ON THE NORTH SIDE AND SO YOU HAVE THESE PRIVATE YARDS IN THE BACK.

AND WHAT'S REALLY NICE IS AND WHAT WE'RE DOING IS WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE CUTTING GRADE. AND SO YOU CAN SEE THE GRADE DIFFERENCE, THE BACK GRADE AT THE TOWNHOUSE FOOTPRINT IS ACTUALLY FIVE FEET LOWER THAN THE BACKYARD OF THE SINGLE FAMILY.

SO EFFECTIVELY YOU'RE TAKING A WHOLE HALF STORY OFF.

AND WHAT THAT DOES IS YOU'LL HAVE YOUR EXISTING FENCE RESIDENTIAL FENCE THAT'S THERE TODAY, AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE YOUR SIX FOOT WALL AND THEN WE'LL HAVE OUR MATURE TREES THAT OH I'M SORRY, OUR STREET TREES WILL BECOME MATURE AND THEN THE SITE WILL SET DOWN.

AND SO YOU'LL EFFECTIVELY BE HAVING A 11 FOOT WALL IN THE BACK.

AND SO THE TOWNHOUSE BACK OR FRONT WILL PROVIDE THIS NICE PRIVACY AREA FOR THE RESIDENTS, AND IT WON'T BE LOOMING OVER THE SINGLE FAMILY.

SO YOU CAN SEE THE HEIGHT DIFFERENCE HERE.

WE'RE REALLY ONLY A TWO STORY TOWNHOUSE.

WE DO HAVE A ROOF TERRACE THAT MAKES THE BUILDING TALLER FOR THE TOWNHOUSE THAT YOU SEE THERE, BUT THE PATIO ROOF TERRACE IS ONLY ON THE FRONT ON THE NORTH SIDE, AND IT'S ONLY FOR THE FIRST THIRD OF THAT FOOTPRINT.

SO WHEN YOU'RE UP THERE, YOU'RE ACTUALLY LOOKING TOWARDS THE APARTMENTS YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE TOWARDS THE BACK BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO THAT'S ALL ROOF IN THE BACK POINTING I CAN'T SEE WHAT I'M POINTING AT.

IT'S ALL ROOF IN THE BACK TWO THIRDS OF THAT TOWNHOUSE UNIT.

SO THAT WAY WE'RE SORT OF ENSURING THAT COMPATIBILITY.

ANOTHER THING ON THE SETBACK IS IF THESE EXACT TOWNHOUSE STRUCTURES WE'RE ON A SEPARATE LOT OF RECORD EACH ONE AND IT QUALIFIED OR IT'S TECHNICALLY A TOWNHOUSE UNIT, THE SETBACK IS ONLY 20 FEET FROM OUR REAR PROPERTY LINE.

WE WOULD COMPLY.

THE FACT THAT WE HAVE ALL THESE UNITS ARE ON ONE LOT OF RECORD.

IT'S MULTIFAMILY.

THERE'S A MULTIFAMILY SETBACK THAT'S GREATER.

IT'S ONE POINT TWO FIVE TIMES THE HEIGHT OF THE BUILDING.

AND THE REASON THAT IS TYPICALLY ON MULTIFAMILY DEAL.

IT'S MORE MASSING.

IT'S A TRADITIONAL APARTMENT DEVELOPMENT, WHICH IS WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING IN THE FRONT.

THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING IN THE BACK.

SO WE BELIEVE WE MEET THE SPIRIT AND INTENT.

AND IF AGAIN, IF THESE WERE ALL ON THERE, EACH INDIVIDUAL LOT OF RECORD EXACTLY THE SAME MASSING AND HEIGHT, WE WOULD COMPLY FOR THE 20 FOOT SETBACK.

NOT TO MENTION, WE HAVE THE TREES, THE DEPTH OF THE YARDS I MENTIONED AND THE WALL WE'RE PROPOSING.

AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO GO BACK OVER THAT, THAT WAS A LOT.

HERE'S OUR LANDSCAPE PLAN.

WE ARE ASKING FOR SLIGHT REDUCTION FROM THE 40 PERCENT TO THIRTY FOUR PERCENT OF OUR TOTAL LANDSCAPE AREA.

AND THE REASON BEING IS THAT 40 PERCENT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE FOR AN URBAN STYLE DEVELOPMENT LIKE THIS WHERE YOU HAVE A PARKING GARAGE.

TYPICALLY, YOU'D HAVE SOME SURFACE PARKING QUITE A BIT.

AND SO FIVE PERCENT OF THAT SURFACE PARKING LOT WOULD HAVE TO BE LANDSCAPED, AND THAT HELPS YOU ACHIEVE YOUR 40 PERCENT.

IN THIS CASE, WE'RE LANDSCAPING WHERE WE CAN AROUND THE DEVELOPMENT AND ARE CLOSE TO THAT PERCENTAGE, DESPITE THE FACT THAT IT HAS A PARKING GARAGE AND NOT A SURFACE PARKING LOT.

[INAUDIBLE] WE'RE PLANNING TO HAVE A DEVELOPMENT THAT REALLY, I THINK, NOT JUST MEETS THE STANDARD BUT EXCEEDS THE STANDARD ON AMENITIES.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START, WE HAVE OUR INTERIOR COURTYARD, WHICH WOULD BE OPEN TO THE SKY, BUT OUR UNITS WILL WILL FACE THAT AMENITY.

SO IT'S ACTUALLY AN ADDED VALUE FOR OUR UNITS THAT FACE THAT COURTYARD.

SO PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING ON THE GROUND ON THAT COURTYARD WILL ENJOY LITTLE PRIVACY AREAS OR PATIOS THAT SORT OF LOOK AT OVER THAT POOL.

OUR POOL WILL HAVE A RAIN CURTAIN WATERFALL FEATURE, SO A RESORT STYLE POOL WILL HAVE, YOU KNOW, YOUR TYPICAL LEISURE AREAS, SHADE STRUCTURES, BARBECUE PITS, YOU KNOW, YOU'LL HAVE FITNESS CENTER, A MAIL ROOM.

WE HAVE A WORK CENTER WITH STRONG WI-FI.

AND THEN IN THIS CASE, WE ALSO ADDED A FOURTH FLOOR PATIO.

BASICALLY, IT KIND OF ACTS LIKE A ROOFTOP PATIO, BUT IT'S NOT ON THE ROOF, IT'S THE

[00:50:03]

FOURTH FLOOR, BUT IT FACES NORTH AND NORTHWEST CORNER.

YOU'LL SEE THERE JUST ANOTHER ADDED AMENITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS.

AND THEN OF COURSE, WE HAVE A DOG WALK AREA ALONG OUR PARKING GARAGE AND THEN OUTDOOR AREA WITH A DOG PARK AND BIKE RACK.

THERE'S JUST SOME A BLOWUP OF OUR INTERIOR COURTYARD AND THEN THE OUTSIDE SPACE.

IT'S NOT JUST FOR DOGS, THERE'S ACTUAL TABLES AND A FIRE PIT AND STAGE STRUCTURE.

BUILDING COMPLIES AS STAFF STATED IT COMPLIES WITH THE ARTICULATION OF MATERIAL STANDARDS. BRICK STONE STUCCO.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ON THESE.

THERE'S A BLUE BOX THERE THAT SORT OF HIGHLIGHTS WHERE THAT FOURTH FLOOR PATIO WOULD BE.

PICTURES. THERE'S THE GARAGE WE WILL BE CLADDING THE [INAUDIBLE] GARAGE EVEN ON THE BACK SIDE, EVEN THOUGH IT FACES AWAY FROM ALL PUBLIC STREETS WE'RE PROVIDING SOME MASONRY THERE. HERE'S OUR TOWNHOUSE UNITS YOU CAN SEE HERE THAT YOU CAN SEE THE PATIO A BIT ON THAT TOP LEFT.

YOU COULD SEE THERE'D BE LIKE A TERRACE WHERE YOU COME UP AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WALK OUT INTO THE PATIO.

BUT AGAIN, FACING THE APARTMENTS, NOT THE SINGLE FAMILY.

AS FAR AS COMPLIANCE WITH THE COMP PLAN COMP PLAN DOES ENCOURAGE HAVING A DIVERSE HOUSING OPTION, SO THIS ADDS TO THAT PROVIDING ANOTHER HIGH END.

IN THIS CASE, A HIGHER END APARTMENT THAT WILL CHALLENGE SOME OF THE HIGHEST RATES IN GARLAND IN TERMS OF RENT.

ALSO, AS FAR AS REDEVELOPMENT GOES, IT'S NOT A REDEVELOPMENT SITE, HOWEVER IT'S A SITE THAT'S IT'S AN INFILL SITE THAT'S BEEN BASICALLY A NONRESIDENTIAL PROPERTY THAT HASN'T BEEN DEVELOPED. AND SO IF THE COMP PLAN ENCOURAGES DEVELOPING OBSOLETE NONRESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES. WE THINK WE'RE DOING THAT WITH THIS DEVELOPMENT.

WE DID HAVE A SUBMARKET STUDY THAT WE DID THAT BASICALLY SHOWS THAT THE DEMAND FOR APARTMENTS AND HOUSING IT'S AS STRONG AS EVER.

TWO PERCENT OF GROWTH, WHICH IS A PRETTY MODERATE ANNUAL JOB GROWTH RATE, IS EQUATES TO ABOUT 5700 JOBS IN THE AREA IN GARLAND ROWLETT, IT'S A DEFINED AREA THAT THEY STUDIED, AND THAT'S ABOUT ONE POINT SEVEN FIVE PERSONS PER JOB THAT YOU HAVE TO FIND A HOUSE FOR.

THAT'S TEN THOUSAND UNITS.

OF THOSE TEN THOUSAND UNITS, 40 PERCENT RENT, SO IT'S ABOUT FOUR THOUSAND UNITS THAT WILL BE ADDED TO THE AREA.

AND THEN BASED ON THOSE FIGURES, YOU KNOW, THERE'S BASICALLY A STRONG DEMAND FOR HOUSING.

WE'RE STILL SEEING A RENTAL RATE GROWTH GO UP WHILE VACANCY RATES ARE STILL GOING DOWN.

AND AS APARTMENTS COME ON AND ARE AVAILABLE, THEY'LL QUICKLY ABSORBED IN THE MARKET AND YOU'RE SEEING OCCUPANCY RATES.

HERE'S SOME JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHERE WE'RE LOOKING.

WE'RE LOOKING AT ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY [INAUDIBLE], A DOLLAR EIGHTY A SQUARE FOOT FOR THIS PROPOSAL. IT'LL LIKELY CONTINUE TO GO UP EVEN BY THE TIME WE IF WE'RE FORTUNATE TO BE APPROVED, IT WILL LIKELY GO UP HIGHER TO, YOU KNOW, A DOLLAR EIGHTY FIVE.

BUT YOU'RE LOOKING AT RATES THAT WILL EXCEED WHAT YOU SEE DOWNTOWN.

BE IN LINE WITH WHAT YOU SEE AT ROWLETT STATION.

AND THEN IT WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE BETWEEN SOME RATES THAT ARE HIGHER AND LOWER IN RICHARDSON, YOU KNOW, CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY CORRIDOR AND UP BY CITY LINE.

AND YOU CAN SEE HERE ALL THESE APARTMENTS ARE NEARLY FULL AND THE ONES THAT AREN'T ARE BECAUSE THEY WERE JUST FINISHED AND THEY ARE QUICKLY FILLING UP.

HERE'S A DEVELOPMENT THAT PINNACLE DID IN CORINTH, AND IT SHOWS YOU A COMPARABLE STYLE, WHAT THEY DELIVER. AS A RENDERING, AND I THINK I'LL STOP THERE AND BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER DALTON.

MAXWELL, WE'RE BEGINNING TO SEE YOU AS MUCH AS WE DID WHEN YOU WE'RE ON THIS SIDE OF THE HORSESHOE. CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE ELEVATION THAT YOU WERE SHOWING BETWEEN THE SOUTH, THE BUILDING SOUTH? ON THE SOUTH SIDE BETWEEN YOU AND THE RESIDENTIAL .

THERE'S A FENCE, THE SCREENING WALL THAT YOU'RE PUTTING UP, THEN YOU'RE SHOWING AN EXISTING FENCE.

IS THAT A DEDICATED ALLEY IN BETWEEN OR WHAT? NO THERE'S NOT AN ALLEY THERE.

THERE JUST HAPPENS TO BE SOME OF THE FENCES ARE UP FROM WHERE OUR FENCE IS PLANNED.

[00:55:04]

SO NO, THERE'S NOT.

I'M NOT AWARE OF AN ALLEY BEING THERE.

THESE ARE ALL FRONT ENTRY, I BELIEVE.

OK. I CAN PROBABLY PULL UP.

BUT THERE IS A SEPARATION BETWEEN THE PROPERTY OF THE HOUSES AND YOUR PROPERTY.

YEAH, THE WAY THAT SHOWN THAT, I THINK THAT IT MIGHT ACTUALLY BE CLOSER TO THE MASONRY SCREEN BECAUSE THERE'S NOT AN ALLEY BACK THERE THAT I'M AWARE OF.

OK, I CAN LOOK IT UP WHILE.

KIND OF WONDERING WHOSE PROPERTY THAT IS IF IT'S NOT AN ALLEY.

Y'ALLS OR THE PEOPLE THAT THE RESIDENTS.

YEAH, I MEAN, OUR FENCE WOULD BE RIGHT ON OUR PROPERTY LINE.

OK. WE DON'T WANT TO CREATE A NO MAN'S LAND.

WELL, THAT'S ONE.

I KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING? [LAUGHTER] LET ME TAKE A LOOK.

I THINK YOU WERE HERE FOR THE PRE-MEETING.

YOU ALSO HEARD MY CONCERNS ABOUT THAT VERY SECLUDED SPACE BETWEEN THOSE UNITS AND THAT SOUTH BOUNDARY, WHERE I'M SURE THE RESIDENTS THAT LIVE IN THOSE UNITS WILL BE ENTERING AND EXITING THROUGH THE NORTH THROUGH THEIR GARAGES.

RIGHT. PEOPLE WILL RARELY RARELY COME TO THE FRONT TO COME IN AND OUT.

YEAH, I MEAN, AND BASICALLY, YOU KNOW THAT SPACE IS YOU'LL HAVE AN OCCASIONAL GUEST WHO WE'VE GOT SOME DESIGNATED PARKING IN THE PARKING GARAGE THAT WILL SERVE THE TOWNHOUSE UNITS. YOU'LL HAVE SOME GUESTS THAT WILL OBVIOUSLY HAVE BEEN TO THEIR FRIENDS OR HOMES OR WHATEVER WILL COME OR THEY'LL KNOW TO GO AROUND TO THE BACK.

BUT THAT AREA IS INTENDED FOR THE RESIDENT TO HAVE A PRIVACY YARD BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT ON THE GARAGE SIDE.

IT'S ESSENTIALLY THE BACK.

SO THERE'S. WELL IT'S JUST ANYONE FROM THOSE HOUSES ON THE SOUTH SIDE OR ANYONE THAT JUST DISCOVERS THERE'S A REAL NICE PRIVACY AREA THERE WHERE THEY CAN GO AND DO THINGS THAT THEY WOULDN'T BE DOING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT BUILDING.

AND THAT'S WHAT CONCERNS ME A LITTLE BIT.

YEAH, I DON'T I MEAN WE'RE DEFINITELY GOING TO HAVE SOME PEDESTRIAN LIGHTING AND THINGS TO HELP WITH THAT. I MEAN, COULD SOMEONE GO BACK THERE AND AND I MEAN, DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT? I MEAN, I GUESS THEY COULD, BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'RE I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'RE CREATING A SITUATION THAT WOULDN'T BE POLICED BY THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE THERE.

IT'S NOT LIKE AN AREA LIKE BEHIND A SHOPPING CENTER.

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE LIVING THERE.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE THEY'RE NOT GOING TO WANT THAT KIND OF ACTIVITY GOING ON.

NOT TO MENTION, SINCE IT IS PART OF THE OVERALL DEVELOPMENT, THAT AT LEAST THERE'S GOING TO BE AN OPERATING COMPANY THAT HAS TO MANAGE THE ENTIRE PROPERTY.

IF THEY WERE SEPARATE LOTS, THEN WE WOULDN'T HAVE THAT SAME ADVANTAGE.

WELL, LIKE YOU SAID, THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE THERE, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE GOING OUT THE FRONT. HONESTLY, I DON'T EVEN GO OUT THE FRONT OF MY HOUSE.

I HAVE REAR ENTRY GARAGE.

YEAH, I RARELY GO OUT THE FRONT.

SO IT'S THE SAME KIND OF A SITUATION HERE.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS WHERE I LIVE IT'S A STREET, AN OPEN STREET.

RIGHT. IN THIS CASE, IT'D BE MORE LIKE A BACK IN THAT WE'LL HAVE A PATIO AREA AND THEN THERE'LL BE, OF COURSE, THE ENTRANCE OR EXIT TO THE HOUSE.

BUT I MEAN, PEOPLE WILL GO OUT THERE AND TAKE THEIR DOG OUT FOR A BIT OR JUST TO RELAX AND DRINK COFFEE IN THE MORNING, AND IT GIVES THEM A PRIVATE YARD TO DO THAT.

AS FAR AS THAT FENCE GOES, IT APPEARS THAT THE FENCE MAY NOT BE CORRECTLY SHOWN ON THE SITE SECTION. THERE IS AN EXISTING FENCE, BUT IT SHOULD BE CLOSER OR CLOSER TO THE MASONRY SCREEN WALL.

AND WE WILL DEFINITELY NOT WANT TO BE CREATING ANY, YOU KNOW, NO MAN'S LAND THAT DOESN'T GET. YEAH, DEFINITELY.

MOWED AND SO FORTH.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER ROSE.

THANK YOU. THERE'S A FIVE FOOT GRADE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR PROPOSED LEVEL AND THE EXISTING GRADE, AND YOU'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT A MASONRY SCREEN AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PUT A RETAINING WALL IN OR KEEP THE RESIDENCE DIRT FROM FALLING INTO YOUR.

EXACTLY. YEAH. SO WE'LL BE CUTTING DOWN.

WE'LL BE PUTTING A RETAINING WALL BASICALLY WHERE YOU SEE THAT GRADE DIFFERENCE THAT'S SHOWN ON THAT SITE SECTION.

AND THEN ON TOP OF THAT RETAINING WALL, WE WILL BUILD A MASONRY WALL.

CORRECT. GOOD.

YEAH. GOOD. GOOD.

GOOD COMMENT. YOU'VE DONE THIS BEFORE? YES. COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

MR. FISHER. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TONIGHT.

GENERALLY, THE THINGS THAT YOU REPRESENT IN TERMS OF YOUR PRESENTATIONS ARE ALWAYS TOP NOTCH. SO HAPPY TO SEE SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES AGAIN.

I'VE GOT A SERIES OF QUESTIONS AND YOU HEARD SOME OF THEM DURING THE WORK SESSION REGARDING THE DENSITY.

[01:00:01]

YOU'VE GOT THE HEIGHT AT 320.

DO WE KNOW THAT THE NEIGHBORING APARTMENTS ALSO HAVE A SIMILAR HEIGHT? THE NEIGHBORING APARTMENTS ARE MORE GARDEN STYLE.

I BELIEVE THEY ARE TWO STORY, SO THEY'RE BUILT IN A DIFFERENT ERA.

WE'RE PROPOSING SOMETHING THAT WHAT YOU SEE MORE COMMON NOW AS ANY TIME YOU HAVE STRUCTURED PARKING, IT'S GOING TO BE THREE OR FOUR STORY'S OR TALLER.

AND SO FOR US TO DELIVER THE AMENITIES AND THE PARKING GARAGE, IT'S JUST SO EXPENSIVE TO BUILD A PARKING GARAGE.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO HAVE THE THREE AND FOUR STORY IN THIS CASE, IT'S A COMBO OF THREE AND FOUR. SO I MEAN, YES, WE'RE TALLER THAN THE APARTMENTS NEXT DOOR, BUT THE DENSITIES WE'RE PROPOSING AT [INAUDIBLE] IS ACTUALLY QUITE A BIT LESS THAN WHAT YOU SEE AROUND THIS BUILDING, THE DENSITIES AROUND AT 5TH STREET CROSSING ARE IN THE SIXTIES AND WE'RE AT FORTY FOUR. AND SO WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE GARAGE WRAP PRODUCTS IN GARLAND, THERE AREN'T MANY. THERE'S THIS ONE.

THERE'S 5TH STREET CROSSING.

I THINK THE ONE UP AT FIREWHEEL IS.

THAT'S CORRECT. AT LEAST ONE OF THEM IS.

SO VERY FEW.

AND YOU KNOW, THIS WILL BE ONE OF THE AGAIN, WE'LL BRING RENTAL RATES THAT'LL BE TOWARDS THE TOP, IF NOT AT THE TOP AS FAR AS GARLAND GOES.

AND WE'LL COMPETE WITH SOME OF THE BETTER ONES IN RICHARDSON.

AND TO DO THAT, WE NEED THE ADDITIONAL FOUR STORIES IN HEIGHT ON THE FRONT THAT ALSO ALLOWS US TO HAVE ELEVATORS.

SO AND NOT TO MENTION SOME OF THE OTHER AMENITIES.

BUT THEN WE'VE QUICKLY STAIR STEP DOWN TO THREE.

WE ALSO HAD A NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING.

WE MET WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND WE HAD ONE SHOW UP THAT WAS FROM ACTUALLY FROM THE NORTH SIDE OF BELTLINE, FROM WAGON WHEEL CROSSING, AND HE HAS HAD SOME GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT TRANSPORTATION TRAFFIC.

OTHER THAN THAT, HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY ISSUES.

I THINK I HEARD YOU SAY IT'S ABOUT BEING COMPETITIVE WITH SOME OF THE SURROUNDING UNITS TO TO ENCOURAGE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THAT PARTICULAR AREA.

I THINK I HEARD YOU SAID AT THE START OF THE PRESENTATION, ONE EIGHTY FOUR.

SO YOU'RE AT THE 15 TOWNHOMES AND THEN 184 WHAT'S THE FORTY FOUR IN REFERENCE TO AM I GETTING MY NUMBERS? FORTY FOUR UNITS PER ACRE.

OK. OK, OK.

AND YEAH, IT EVEN LOOKS LIKE THE TERMS OF MINIMUM SIZING YOU'RE GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR A LOT OF THOSE UNITS AS WELL.

SO IT'S NOT THAT YOU'RE MEETING THAT YOU'RE PROVIDING A BIGGER UNIT, JUST MORE OF THEM.

THAT'S RIGHT. WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR ANY DEVIATIONS ON THE MINIMUM UNIT SIZE, FLOOR AREA, UNIT SIZE. WE SEE THOSE, YOU KNOW, QUITE A BIT ON MOST OF THEM.

SO THIS WILL BE A HIGH END APARTMENT.

IN FACT, I CAN'T THINK OF ONE THAT'S HIGHER IN GARLAND IF IT'S APPROVED.

OK, SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIKE MY NEXT QUESTION.

OK. IT'S BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO ITS FOCUS IS HIGH IN.

IT'S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY AFFORDABLE OR SUBSIDIZED UNITS IN IT.

IS THAT RIGHT? THAT'S CORRECT.

OK. YEAH.

NEXT QUESTION IS ABOUT WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE SETBACKS YOU MENTIONED THAT IT MEETS THE SPIRIT OF THE SINGLE FAMILY ZONING REQUEST.

MY QUESTION THEN IS THESE TOWN HOMES LOOK LIKE THEY ARE MEANT TO BE SEPARATE AND APART FROM THE MULTIFAMILY SPACE, FROM THE LARGER SPACE? DO THEY HAVE THE SAME ACCESS TO ALL OF THE AMENITIES THAT YOU'VE PREVIOUSLY INDICATED, WHICH WOULD BE THE PURPOSE OF, YOU KNOW, DOING THE DENSITY AND SIZE AND ETC.? YES, THEY WILL. THEY'LL HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE SAME AMENITIES.

LIKE A KEY CARD JUST EVERYONE GETS.

YEAH I'M NOT AWARE. THEY'RE NOT.

YEAH, YEAH.

OK, OK. ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. GOOD QUESTION.

COMMISSIONER LUCHT. I'M REALLY IMPRESSED WITH THE PLAN AND THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL, ESPECIALLY FACING THAT ROOF TERRACE ON THE TOWNHOMES AROUND TO FACE THE APARTMENTS.

I THINK YOU'RE BEING VERY EMPATHETIC TO THE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES BEHIND THERE, AND I REALLY LIKE THAT. I ALSO THINK THAT IT WILL REALLY IMPROVE THAT AREA.

IT'S NEEDED HELP FOR QUITE SOME TIME, AND SOMETHING OF THIS LEVEL WILL DEFINITELY HELP, ESPECIALLY THE RETAIL CENTER ACROSS THE STREET.

THEY EVEN HAVE SOME VACANCIES IN THERE STILL SO AND HAVE FOR YEARS.

SO I THINK THAT'LL BE GREAT FOR THEM.

COMMISSIONERS. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONER ROSE.

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS, HAS THERE BEEN ANY INTEREST IN THE VACANT DIRT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF BELTLINE ROAD? NOT RIGHT ACROSS FROM YOU, BUT.

[01:05:03]

I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT.

OK, I JUST WAS CURIOUS.

MAYBE SINCE YOU ALL WERE WORKING ON THIS, MAYBE WHOEVER OWNS THAT HAD SOME INTEREST BECAUSE THAT'S BEEN VACANT FOR A LONG.

YEAH, THERE'S BEEN INTEREST IN THAT ON THAT SITE FROM TIME TO TIME OVER THE YEARS.

BUT I'M NOT SURE.

OK, THANKS. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, OK? MAXWELL, I THINK I'LL GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF FEEDBACK.

THIS IS REALLY IMPRESSIVE.

FOUR SIDED ARCHITECTURE.

I LOVE IT. IT'S REALLY NICE.

YOU KNOW, YOU ALREADY MENTIONED THE 1985 PD THAT IT'S GETTING RID OF AND MOVING EVERYTHING WITH THE TALLEST STRUCTURES TOWARDS THE FRONT.

IT'S VERY, VERY NICE.

THANKS. RIGHT. ALL RIGHT, [INAUDIBLE] COMMISSIONERS, DO WE HAVE DISCUSSION OR ACTUALLY LET ME ASK TRACY, DO WE HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? WELL, COMMISSIONERS A MOTION DISCUSSION.

COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

I MAKE A MOTION THAT WE CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND APPROVE THE FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA AT THIS TIME. I DON'T HAVE THE NUMBERS IN FRONT OF ME, EXCUSE ME, THE CHANGE IN ZONING AND THE DETAIL PLAN.

NO, JUST TO CHANGE IN ZONING TO BEGIN.

JUST A CHANGE IN ZONING.

IS THEIR A SECOND.

SECOND. GO AHEAD.

THERE'S A SECOND, OK. IT'D BE COMMISSIONER PARIS.

OK, WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND TO PASS THE FIRST ITEM ONLY THE CHANGE IN ZONING. COMMISSIONER ROSE.

I WOULD LIKE TO AMEND THAT TO INCLUDE BOTH THE PROPOSED ZONING AND THE DETAILED PLAN TO GET THEM BOTH DONE TOGETHER.

DOES THE MAKER OF THE MOTION CONCUR.

NO. OK, SO WE HAVE A OK.

WE HAVE A MOTION FOR A CHANGE IN ZONING FOR THE FIRST ITEM ONLY.

LET'S I GUESS LET'S VOTE.

AND THAT PASSED UNANIMOUSLY.

OK, OUR SECOND ITEM.

[4b. Consideration of the application of Millennium Village, LP. / Masterplan, requesting approval of a Detail Plan for Multi-Family development. This property is located at 1602 Belt Line Road. (District 7) (File Z 21-29 - Detail Plan)]

I SECOND. OK.

WE HAVE A MOTION FROM COMMISSIONER ROSE AND A SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER LUCHT TO PASS THE DETAILED PLAN.

SEEING, OH, WE HAVE A QUESTION DISCUSSION.

SPECIFICALLY IT RELATES AS IT RELATES TO THE DENSITY, WHICH I THINK NEEDS TO BE AT LEAST ADDRESSED AS WE'RE LOOKING FOR.

THERE WAS SOME DISCUSSION REGARDING THE SPIRIT AND INTENT, AND I LIKE THAT OF THE ZONING REQUESTS. YES, IT MEETS THE COMPREHENSIVE PLANS LONG TERM GOALS FOR THE AREA.

BUT THE PURPOSE OF SINGLE FAMILY IS ULTIMATELY STABILITY.

AND IF WE'RE NOT BEING MINDFUL OF THE NECESSITY TO HAVE AN AREA THAT ENCOURAGES LONG TERM STABILITY, WE MAY JUST BE OVERLOOKING SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE CITY'S NEEDS. AND SO I'M NOT NECESSARILY AGAINST THE DETAILED PLAN, AS IT'S PRESENTED THIS EVENING. I JUST WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT WE HAVE OR WE TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT THE OVERALL DENSITY OF THE UNIT THAT WE SAY SOMETHING TO ADDRESS IT.

THAT'S ALL.

MY VOICE IS CRACKING APPARENTLY I'M EMOTIONAL.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? NO. OH, COMMISSIONER ROSE.

MY CONCERN IS THIS PIECE OF DIRT HAS BEEN SITTING THERE FOR A LONG TIME.

I'VE BEEN LIVING IN GARLAND SINCE 1989, AND IT'S PROBABLY BEEN THERE LONGER THAN THAT.

AND I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN MUCH INTEREST IN DEVELOPING IT, AND THIS IS A MIGHTY, FINE LOOKING DEVELOPMENT.

I THINK WE OUGHT TO LET THEM PROCEED AND MOVE FORWARD.

AND WITH THE RETAINING WALL AND THE FENCE, THEY'RE GOING TO PUT ON THE RESIDENTS BEHIND

[01:10:02]

THEM TO THE SOUTH.

GO PLANT SOME TREES, SOMETHING TO KILL THE VIEW IF THEY'RE REAL CONCERNED.

COMMISSIONER I GENERALLY AGREE LAND IS THE ONE RESOURCE THE CITY HAS, WHICH WE CAN RUN OUT OF. AND SO WE HAVE TO BE, AT LEAST IN MY OPINION, WE HAVE TO BE REALLY MINDFUL THAT WE ARE ALLOWING QUALITY DEVELOPMENTS TO OCCUR.

SO AGAIN, I GENERALLY AM FOR THIS DETAILED PLAN, BUT WE'VE HEARD COMMENTS FROM THE COMMUNITY AND FROM THE COUNCIL THAT DENSITY SHOULD BE ADDRESSED, AND THIS PARTICULAR REQUEST IS WAY OVER WHAT THE DENSITY REQUIREMENTS WOULD NORMALLY BE.

SO EITHER WE HAVE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT AMENDING THE GDC AT SOME POINT OR I DON'T KNOW, BUT THAT'S THAT'S WHERE THE HESITATION IS.

COMMISSIONER ROSE.

MY CONCERN WITH RESPECT TO DENSITY IS IF THEY DON'T GET THE DENSITY, THEY CAN'T MAKE IT FINANCIALLY WORK TO BE DEVELOPED, AND THUS WE REALLY NEED TO ACCOMMODATE IT, ALLOW THE DENSITY SO THEY CAN PUT THIS MARVELOUS LOOKING FACILITY IN OUR CITY.

IT'S A GIVE AND TAKE.

THANK YOU. ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE. WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE FROM COMMISSIONER ROSE AND THE SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER LUCHT AS PRESENTED.

LET'S VOTE. AND IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS A TWO PART, IT'S A REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF ONE DETAILED

[4c. Consideration of the application of Westfall Engineering, PLLC, requesting approval of a Specific Use Provision for a Restaurant, Drive-Through on a property zoned Planned Development (PD) District 13-02. This property is located at 5300 North Garland Avenue. (District 1) (Z 21-34 - Specific Use Provision)]

[4d. Consideration of the application of Westfall Engineering, PLLC, requesting approval of a Detail Plan for a Restaurant, Drive-Through. This property is located at 5300 North Garland Avenue. (District 1) (Z 21-34 – Detail Plan)]

PLAN FOR A RESTAURANT DRIVE THRU AND TWO A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION SUP FOR A RESTAURANT AND DRIVE THRU AT FIFTY THREE HUNDRED NORTH GARLAND AVENUE.

IT'S Z21-34.

IS THE APPLICANT HERE? WELCOME. IF YOU COULD STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

MY NAME IS MICHAEL WESTFALL WITH WESTFALL ENGINEERING 1719 ANGEL PARKWAY IN ALLEN, TEXAS, 75002.

I'M THE CIVIL ENGINEER FOR THE DEVELOPER, SO I'M NOT WITH THE COFFEE SHOP.

BUT I WAS HERE FOR THE EARLIER MEETING AND I JUST WANTED TO ADDRESS A COUPLE OF COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS THAT I HEARD.

AND THE FIRST ONE WAS WHETHER OR NOT THE STARBUCKS ACROSS THE STREET WAS GOING TO CLOSE.

AND THE ANSWER IS, I DON'T KNOW.

THEY HAVE EXPRESSED A DESIRE TO HAVE A DRIVE THRU AND RELOCATE TO A LOCATION THAT HAS A DRIVE THRU, SO I ASSUMED THAT'S WHAT THAT MEANT.

BUT THEY HAVEN'T SPECIFICALLY SAID WE'RE CLOSING THAT STORE, SO I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT ANSWER, BUT THAT WAS MY ASSUMPTION.

THE SECOND QUESTION THAT CAME UP WAS REGARDING THE LENGTH OF THE SUP.

I THINK THE REPORT SAID USUALLY IT'S TWENTY TO TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO AVOID IS THE SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE A SITE PLAN APPROVED WITH A DRIVE THRU AND WE GET IT BUILT WITH THE DRIVE THRU.

AND THEN AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE, THE SUP THEN DOESN'T GET RENEWED FOR WHATEVER REASON. AND THEN WE HAVE A BUILDING THAT HAS A DRIVE THRU THAT WE CAN NO LONGER USE AND IT BECOMES VACANT. SO WE WERE TRYING TO JUST MATCH UP THE SUP LENGTH WITH THE USE OF THE DRIVE THRU IS WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO DO.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, I'M AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE, AND THE DEVELOPER IS ALSO HERE [INAUDIBLE] OK.

I THINK WE HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS FOR YOU, STARTING WITH COMMISSIONER LUCHT.

ACTUALLY, THIS IS FOR STAFF.

DO YOU KNOW IF THERE'S AN SUP FOR THE RETAIL CENTER THAT THIS WILL BE PLACED NEAR, LIKE THE WALMART AND THE SAM'S? MR. CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONER, I BELIEVE THE WAL-MART IS WHAT YOU'RE ALLUDING TO IS WITHIN A PD AND HOWEVER, THE DRIVE THRU RESTAURANT STILL REQUIRES AN SUP WITHIN THAT PD AND THERE ARE ADJACENT DRIVE THRU'S AND CLOSE BY.

[01:15:03]

YES, THEY HAVE SUPS.

YES. HOW LONG ARE THOSE? OH, I COULDN'T TELL YOU EXACTLY EACH ONE OF THEM.

BUT AS MR. DE LA VEGA MENTIONED EARLIER, THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE THE TWENTY TO TWENTY FIVE YEARS THAT IS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF PAST DRIVE THRU RESTAURANT APPROVALS.

SO THE AVERAGE OF THOSE TYPES OF SUPS DOES FALL WITHIN THE 20 TO 25 YEAR TIME PERIOD.

SO THAT'S USUALLY A GOOD GUESS.

OK. THANK YOU.

AND COMMISSIONER ROSE.

YES, SIR. IF THIS GETS APPROVED THROUGH COUNCIL WHAT KIND OF A TIME FRAME IS YOUR CLIENT ON SIX YEARS, SIX WEEKS WHAT.

I'M NOT PRIVY TO ALL THE DATES.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT.

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WALMART WILL.

LUKE STAINBACK 5622 DYER STREET SUITE 200 DALLAS, TEXAS 75206.

GOOD EVENING, COMMISSION.

THANK YOU. I'M WITH THE STAINBACK ORGANIZATION WE'RE THE DEVELOPER ON THE PROJECT.

AND THE TIME FRAME WOULD BE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

WAL-MART ACTUALLY HAS A RESTRICTION THAT WE CAN'T DO MAJOR CONSTRUCTION DURING NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER. YOU COULD PROBABLY IMAGINE WHY.

SO AS LONG AS WE DON'T START DURING THOSE MONTHS, IT WOULD BE RIGHT AWAY.

SO, YEAH, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WELL, COMMISSIONERS, IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION OR A A MOTION.

MR. CHAIR. COMMISSIONER DALTON .

OK. AND WE HAVE A SECOND FROM JENKINS OR FROM COMMISSIONER PARIS.

ALL RIGHT. WELL, AND SO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND THE MOTION.

PART ONE AS PRESENTED PART TWO THAT WE HAVE WITH A STIPULATION WITH TWENTY FIVE YEAR TIME PERIOD. CORRECT.

OH, WELL, NO DISCUSSION.

LET'S VOTE. OH, WE GOT.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER 30 YEARS? I MEAN, WHAT DO YOU THINK, SIR? THE QUESTION FOR THE APPLICANT HERE.

SO OUR LEASE WITH STARBUCKS HAS EXTENDS OUT ACTUALLY TO 30 YEARS.

SO WE WOULD PREFER 30 YEARS OVER 25 IF IT COMES TO THAT.

IDEALLY, WE WOULD PREFER TO HAVE IT TO WHERE WE DON'T HAVE TO COME BACK IN.

BECAUSE IF FOR SOME REASON, YOU KNOW, STARBUCKS IS 30 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD, WHICH A LOT OF THINGS STAY FOR 30 YEARS AND WE HAVE TO COME BACK IN, WE JUST DON'T WANT THE RISK OF POTENTIALLY HAVING A BUILDING THERE WITHOUT SOMEONE IN IT.

THAT'S THE REASON WE WOULD LIKE PERPETUAL.

BUT THE TERM OF THE LEASE IS 10 YEARS WITH FOUR OR FIVE YEAR EXTENSIONS, SO 30 TOTAL.

I WOULD PROPOSE COMMISSIONER PARIS. OK.

SO TO RESTATE THE MOTION, WE ARE CLOSING THE PUBLIC HEARING AND WE ARE GOING TO PASS THE FIRST SECTION AS PRESENTED AND THE SUP WITH 30 YEARS.

LET'S VOTE. AND THAT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

OUR THIRD ITEM THIS EVENING IS A THREE PART.

[01:20:03]

AND THREE APPROVAL OF A PLAN TO ALLOW A USED GOODS RETAIL SALES INDOOR USE.

THE LOCATION IS AT 4430 LAVON DRIVE, SUITE 374 AND THE FILE NUMBER IS Z21-40.

IS THE APPLICANT WITH US? GOOD EVENING, WES [INAUDIBLE] 2595 DALLAS PARKWAY, FRISCO, TEXAS, 75034.

AND LET ME PULL THIS UP REAL QUICK.

I HAVE A SHORT PRESENTATION.

I THINK MAYBE.

OH, APPLICANT PRESENTATION. I'M SORRY, I'M LOOKING AT THE WRONG ONE.

SO WE ARE HERE REPRESENTING PLATO'S CLOSET.

THEY ARE A NATIONAL RETAILER.

THEY ARE LOCATED IN MANY CITIES IN THE METROPLEX AND OF COURSE, THE UNITED STATES AS A WHOLE CAN GET INTO THAT A LITTLE BIT HERE.

IS THE SITE JUST KIND OF AN AERIAL SHOT.

IT'S IN THE FIREWHEEL MARKETPLACE JUST KIND OF RIGHT OFF OF 78 OVER THERE, KIND OF ON THE BACK CORNER? AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, IT IS ACTUALLY TWO SUITES THAT THEY ARE PLANNING ON COMBINING JUST TO HAVE A LARGER SPACE FOR THE RETAIL SALES THAT WILL OCCUR THERE.

AND HERE IS THE LARGE OVERALL PLAN YOU CAN SEE HERE THAT THEY'RE COMBINING THOSE TWO SPACES TO BE A LITTLE BIT UNDER FOUR THOUSAND SQUARE FEET FOR THE TOTAL SIZE OF THE STORE. AND HERE'S SOME INFORMATION KIND OF REGARDING PLATO'S CLOSET.

IT'S A PRETTY, RELATIVELY HIGH END RETAIL SALES LOCATION.

THEY ARE VERY RESTRICTIVE IN WHAT THEY ACTUALLY SELL.

I HAVE A PERSONAL ANECDOTE OF I'M GOING THERE WITH ALL MY CLOTHES WHEN I'M GOING TO COLLEGE TRYING TO MAKE A LITTLE BIT EXTRA CASH.

I DIDN'T WALK AWAY WITH ANYTHING.

I DID NOT. NOTHING WAS SOLD OR GIVEN TO ME ANY CASH.

I DID NOT MEET THE THRESHOLD.

AND, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT THEY WERE NICE CLOTHES.

I THOUGHT THEY WERE, YOU KNOW, URBAN OUTFITTERS KIND OF OLD STUFF.

BUT I GUESS IT'S A LITTLE BIT TOO OLD.

IT WAS OUT OF FASHION, SO I DID NOT ACTUALLY GET ANYTHING, ANY MONEY AT ALL.

AND SO THAT WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTING.

BUT THEY DO TAKE THEIR INTAKE PRETTY SERIOUSLY.

THEY, YOU KNOW, STAIN FREE, WRINKLE FREE, CLEAN, GOOD CONDITIONS, OBVIOUSLY IN STYLE.

THEY ALSO SELL NOT JUST CLOTHES, BUT JEWELRY HATS, SOME NEW ITEMS AS WELL, SUCH AS UNDERWEAR AND GARMENTS SUCH AS THAT.

THEY DON'T RESELL ANYTHING THAT'S BEEN WORN IN THAT AREA BY AN INDIVIDUAL THAT'S ALL BRAND NEW. AND THERE'S ALSO 12 LOCATIONS IN DALLAS, FORTY FIVE IN TEXAS, SO THERE'S A FEW AROUND THE METROPLEX.

IT IS OWNED BY A WINMARK CORPORATION.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THEIR STORES THAT THEY OWN.

AS YOU CAN SEE, MOST OF THEIR STORES ARE THE RETAIL MODEL OR THE REFURBISHED PRE-OWNED MODEL. AS YOU CAN SEE, KIND OF THE RECYCLE O THEY FIT INTO ALL OF THEIR, I GUESS, LOGOS AND SO PLAY IT AGAIN SPORTS ONCE UPON CHILD, THESE ARE ALL KIND OF CATERED TO SPECIFIC SPORTS NEEDS OR OBVIOUSLY, CHILDREN.

I KNOW KIDS GROW FAST. I HAVE A COUPLE OF FRIENDS THAT ARE HAVING KIDS AND THEY'RE ALL NERVOUS ABOUT THAT. AND THESE ARE SOME RETAILERS THAT ARE THE EXACT SAME USE.

THESE WERE APPROVED PRIOR TO THE PLAN CHANGE, WHERE THE USE WAS RESTRICTED IN WHERE IT IS. AND SO OBVIOUSLY, ONCE UPON A CHILD, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, IS JUST RIGHT UP THE STREET AS WELL AS CLOTHES MENTOR, WHICH IS THE SIMILAR USE.

I THINK IT'S A LITTLE BIT HIGHER END, BUT YOU KNOW, SAME TYPE OF DEAL, MORE OF ADULT CLOTHING. AND HERE'S SOME BASIC INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY WE'RE APPLYING FOR THE SUP FOR USED GOODS, RETAIL SALES INDOORS.

THIS IS NOT A BAZAAR OR KIND OF, YOU KNOW, CONSIGNMENT STORE WHERE THEY'RE TAKING IN EVERYTHING AND JUST SELLING IT, THEY'RE NOT SELLING ANYTHING OUTSIDE.

IT'S ALL INSIDE. OOPS BUMPED THE MIC THERE, VERY CLEAN.

HOURS OF OPERATION 10 TO 9.

SUNDAY IS A LITTLE BIT LESS TIME THAT THEY'RE OPEN.

WE'RE REQUESTING FOR 20 YEARS JUST WE THINK THAT'S AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF TIME FOR THE STORE. THEY'RE USUALLY PRETTY LONG STANDING.

THE ONE THAT I WENT TO, WHEN I GRADUATED COLLEGE, WHICH IS QUITE A LONG TIME AGO, IS STILL THERE. I THINK IT'S OFF OF ABRAMS AND NORTHWEST HIGHWAY IN DALLAS.

I THINK THAT'S THE ONE I WENT TO.

AND JUST A QUICK SUMMARY.

WE THINK IT DOES ALIGN WITH THE FIREWHEEL MARKETPLACE BUSINESSES.

IT'S A GOOD COMPLEMENT TO THE EXISTING BUSINESSES THERE.

OBVIOUSLY, IT'S A STRONG NATIONAL RETAILER THERE, YOU KNOW, ON THE NASDAQ OR DOW JONES.

I THINK I LOOK THEM UP THE OTHER DAY.

AND COMPLEMENTS THE EXISTING STORES JUST KIND OF EXPANDS THE USES THAT PEOPLE WOULD GO THERE FOR TO SHOP KIND OF ADDS ANOTHER ELEMENT.

IF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN LOOKING AT USED CLOTHES OR TO SAVE A COUPLE OF BUCKS HERE OR THERE TO GET SOMETHING ON SALE, YOU KNOW, THAT MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD OTHERWISE.

SO HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, AND THAT'S THE PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU. ANY QUESTIONS OF THE SPEAKER?

[01:25:07]

OK, THANK YOU.

WELL, COMMISSION, I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION THAT WE ACCEPT ALL THREE . PROPOSALS. YES, BY THE APPLICANT.

SECOND.

WELL, WE HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER LUCHT AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS TO PASS ALL THREE OF THESE AS PRESENTED.

ANY QUESTIONS? ALL RIGHT. I'M SORRY. I'VE GOT A QUESTION? IS THE 20 YEAR SUP, THAT WE'RE APPROVING.

YOU'RE RIGHT. OK, THANK YOU.

20 YEAR SUP.

OK. YES. ALL RIGHT.

AND THAT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THAT CONCLUDES ALL OF OUR INDIVIDUAL ITEMS. WE HAVE ONE MISCELLANEOUS WE'VE BEEN PRESENTED A PROPOSED SCHEDULE FOR THE 2022

[5a. Consider approval of the 2022 Plan Commission meeting dates.]

CALENDAR YEAR AND THIS SCHEDULE WAS DRAFTED TO AVOID DATE CONFLICTS WITH OTHER CITY OF GARLAND PUBLIC BOARDS.

AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IS A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A CONSISTENT CALENDAR FOR THE YEAR.

MR. CHAIR.

OH COMMISSIONER ROSE FIRST WITH A QUESTION.

WHY ALL THE JUGGLING OF THE DATES? I MEAN, YOU KNOW, THERE HAS BEEN A CONSISTENCY OVER THE YEARS FOR MEETING ON CERTAIN DATES AND MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS OR MONDAYS, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT'S JUST ALL OVER THE PLACE. WHAT HAPPENED? YES, SIR. WELL, WE ARE RESPONDING TO THE CHANGE OF DATES BY THE CITY COUNCIL.

I COULDN'T SPEAK TO THEIR CHANGE OF DATES.

SO THIS WAS, YOU KNOW, BEST SHOT AT IT.

AS FAR AS YOU KNOW, IN SOME CASES, I THINK FEBRUARY OR EXCUSE ME, ONE OF THE MONTHS IS KIND OF MORE OF A THIRD AND FOURTH WEEK INSTEAD OF THE SECOND AND FOURTH THINGS LIKE THAT. YOU ALWAYS HAVE SOME WEDNESDAYS, BUT IT WAS IT WAS QUITE A JUGGLING ACT TO AVOID THE CONFLICTS AND ALSO BE MINDFUL OF OUR SHOT CLOCK LAWS BETWEEN APPLICATIONS SUBMITTAL AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION DATES, AS WELL AS BETWEEN THE PLANNING COMMISSION DATES, CITY COUNCIL DATES. THERE'S ALL HAVE TO BE 30 DAYS OR LESS FROM ONE ANOTHER.

AND IN ADDITION TO THAT OUR NOTIFICATION LETTERS WHICH ADD ANOTHER LAYER OF COMPLICATION.

SO THIS SEEMS TO MEET ALL THAT.

YEAH, WHICH IS QUITE A CHALLENGE.

AND KUDOS TO TRACY FOR REALLY PUTTING THIS TOGETHER.

AND WE SAT DOWN AND SHE SHE NAILED IT.

COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

THANK YOU. I THINK ON THE WEBSITE, IT'S STILL INDICATES THAT WE'RE MEETING ON VERY SPECIFIC DATES.

IF WE ARE GOING TO BE CHANGING OR ALTERING OR DOING THAT, WE SHOULD PROBABLY MAKE SOME AMENDMENTS TO THE WEBSITE AS WELL.

EXCELLENT SUGGESTION.

YEAH, OK.

WELL, DO WE HAVE A MOTION ON THIS ITEM.

SO MOVED.

SECOND, OK? AS PRESENTED.

OK. WE HAVE A MOTION FROM COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS AND A SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER ROSE TO APPROVE AS PRESENTED.

THAT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

AND SEEING AS THAT IS OUR OUR LAST AGENDA ITEM, WE WANT TO THANK THE PUBLIC AND UNTIL OUR NEXT MEETING IN NOVEMBER, WE ARE ADJOURNED.
