THIS PORTION OF OUR MEETING IS OUR BRIEFING SESSION WHERE STAFF TELLS US WHAT WE'RE DOING AND WE ASK QUESTIONS BACK AND FORTH, AND THEN WE'LL HAVE OUR REGULAR MEETING AT SEVEN O'CLOCK. GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT. GOOD EVENING.

BEFORE I START WITH MY PRESENTATION, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK IF ANYONE HAD ANY QUESTIONS IN REGARDS TO THE CONSENT AGENDA? NO.

THIS IS CASE NUMBER Z 21-25.

THE APPLICANT PROPOSES A TEA AND COFFEE SHOP WITH A DRIVE THRU IN AN EXISTING ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FOUR SQUARE FOOT BUILDING.

THIS IS THE CASE INFORMATION.

THE PROJECT IS LOCATED AT FIVE ONE NINE NORTH JUPITER ROAD.

THE ACREAGE IS ZERO POINT FIVE ZERO AND THE ZONING IS PLANNED DEVELOPMENT 89-30.

THIS IS THE CITYWIDE LOCATION MAP THE STAR REPRESENTS THE GENERAL AREA OF THE PROJECT.

THIS IS THE LOCATION MAP.

THE PROPERTY IS OUTLINED UNTIL AND THEN THIS LITTLE AREA IS THE SUBJECT SITE.

THIS PROPERTY IS PRIMARILY SURROUNDED BY COMMUNITY RETAIL.

THEN ALSO, THERE ARE A FEW PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS, WHICH IS THE 80-48 AND 89-30, WHICH ARE CONSIST OF A VARIETY OF RETAIL USES.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN RECOMMENDS NEIGHBORHOOD CENTERS, AND WITH THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING THEY THE YOUTH IS SUPPORTIVE OF THE SURROUNDING AREA AND THEN ALSO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

THESE ARE THE PHOTOS OF THE AREA.

THIS IS THE SUBJECT SITE, AND THEN NEXT TO THE SUBJECT SITE, THERE'S A SCOOTER'S DRIVE THRU COFFEE SHOP AND THEN ACROSS THE STREET, THERE IS A VARIETY OF RETAIL USES, AND THEN THERE'S A GAS STATION WHICH IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, WHICH IS LOCATED HERE. THIS IS THE SITE PLAN THAT THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED.

AS I MENTIONED, THE APPLICANT IS USING THE EXISTING SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE BUILDING TO PROPOSE A TEA AND COFFEE SHOP DRIVE THRU.

THE APPLICANT IS NOT EXPANDING THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE BUILDING.

THE BUILDING IS TO REMAIN AS IS.

THE APPLICANT IS PROVIDING SOME FACADE UPDATES.

THE SITE PLAN THE GDC REQUIRES 19 PARKING SPACES AND THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING 20 PARKING SPACES, SO THEY ARE MEETING THE GDC REQUIREMENTS.

THIS IS THE LANDSCAPE PLAN THAT THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED, THERE IS EXISTING LANDSCAPING ON SITE. THE APPLICANT IS PROVIDING ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING WITH THIS REQUEST.

THESE ARE THE BUILDING ELEVATIONS AND THE BUILDING ELEVATIONS ARE MEETING THE GDC REQUIREMENTS. THE APPLICANT REQUESTED A TWENTY FIVE YEAR SUP, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD POLICY GUIDE AND NO DEVIATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED BY THE APPLICANT. WE MAILED OUT 90 NOTIFICATION LETTERS.

WE RECEIVED TWO IN FAVOR INSIDE THE NOTIFICATION AREA AND THE TOTAL WAS TWO, AND I'M SORRY, STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST.

THAT CONCLUDES STAFF PRESENTATION.

ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE MAKING A SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT TO THAT BUILDING.

YES. YES? OH, I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T SEE YOU UP HERE.

THE SITE PLAN IS THE DRIVE THRU ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING ? I COULDN'T TELL BY THE DRAWINGS.

[00:05:02]

IT'S ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING.

OKAY, THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. YOU'RE WELCOME.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING. GOOD EVENING.

THIS IS FOR CASE Z 21-60.

THE APPLICANT REQUESTED TO REVISE THE ZONING BOUNDARY LINES FOR A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 15-40 FOR MULTIFAMILY USE AND TO INCORPORATE TWO ADDITIONAL ACRES.

THERE ARE NO IMPROVEMENTS PROPOSED AT THIS TIME.

THIS IS A ZONING CHANGE FROM PLANNED DEVELOPMENT 15-14 AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT FOR MULTIFAMILY USES.

HERE'S THE CASE INFORMATION.

THE ACREAGE IS APPROXIMATELY THIRTEEN POINT TWO ACRES.

THIS IS THE CITY-WIDE LOCATION MAP, THE RED STAR IDENTIFIES THE APPROXIMATE LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

THIS IS THE LOCATION MAP, THE SUBJECT PROPERTY'S OUTLINE IN THIS TEAL BLUE COLOR AND THIS BROWN, THIS BROWN COLOR RIGHT HERE.

THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL BOUNDARIES FOR PD 15-40 AND THEN IN 2016, THE DETAILED PLAN WAS APPROVED FOR PHASE ONE AND THEN IN 2021, PHASE TWO WAS APPROVED AND WE DID RECEIVE A ZONING APPLICATION FOR PHASE THREE.

IT'S CURRENTLY IN REVIEW AND NOW THE APPLICANT WOULD LIKE TO REVISE THE ZONING BOUNDARY LINES FOR PHASE FOUR, WHICH INCLUDES A PORTION OF PD 15-40 AND AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT.

AND THIS IS JUST TO REVISE THE ZONING BOUNDARIES FOR FUTURE RECLAMATION.

THEY'RE NOT PROPOSING TO MAKE ANY IMPROVEMENTS AT THIS TIME.

THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP OF THE ENVISION GARLAND PLAN DESIGNATES THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AS COMPACT NEIGHBORHOODS AND PARKS AND OPEN SPACE.

THIS IS PART OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE SITE PHOTOS THE TOP LEFT IS VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM BUNKER HILL AND THEN TOP RIGHT IS NORTH OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

THAT'S THE CITY OF SACHSE.

THE BOTTOM LEFT IS EAST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS WEST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND HERE ARE THE BOUNDARIES FOR THE THIRTEEN POINT TWO ACRES, IT DOES INCLUDE ADDITIONAL TWO ACRES FOR FUTURE RECLAMATION, AND THEY'RE NOT PROPOSING ANY DEVELOPMENT AT THIS TIME, BUT IN THE FUTURE WHEN THEY DO DEVELOP, IT WILL REQUIRE A DETAILED PLAN APPROVAL THROUGH THE PUBLIC HEARING PROCESS.

STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE ZONING CHANGE FROM PD15-40 AND AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT FOR MULTIFAMILY USES, AND WE MAILED OUT EIGHT NOTIFICATION LETTERS, WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY RESPONSES.

BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

ANY QUESTIONS? I'VE GOT ONE.

DID AN ENGINEERING LOOK THIS OVER BY ANY CHANCE IN TERMS OF THEY THINK THE LAND CAN BE RECLAIMED BROUGHT UP OUT OF THE FLOODPLAIN? YES, THEY'LL LOOK INTO IT FURTHER WHEN THEY--OH OF COURSE.

YEAH, THEN THEY HAVE TO GET THROUGH THE FEDS TOO.

GOT IT.

THANK YOU . THE NEXT ONE IS SB 21-02.

THE APPLICANT REQUEST A VARIANCE FOR THE PROPOSED WALL SIGNAGE.

APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST WOULD ALLOW ALL SIGNAGE ABOVE THE MAXIMUM SIZE ALLOWANCE IN THE GARLAND DEVELOPMENT CODE AND THIS IS THE APPROVAL OF A SIGN VARIES ON A PROPERTY ZONED LIGHT COMMERCIAL DISTRICT.

HERE IS THE CASE INFORMATION.

THE ACREAGE IS APPROXIMATELY TWO POINT EIGHTY SEVEN ACRES.

THE CITYWIDE LOCATION MAP AND THE RED STAR SHOWS THE LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

THIS IS THE LOCATION MAP, THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS OUTLINED IN THE TEAL BLUE COLOR, AND THE TENANT SPACE IS THE NAVY BLUE COLOR AND PROPERTY SURROUNDING PROPERTIES ARE MAINLY LIGHT COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS AND THE PROPERTIES ACROSS LAVON DRIVE ARE ZONED PD 83-104 AND

[00:10:06]

IT'S FOR SINGLE FAMILY USE.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOS THE TOP LEFT IS VIEW OF THE PROPOSED LOCATION, AND YOU CAN SEE THE VACANT TENANT SPACE WHERE THEY WOULD LIKE TO PROPOSE A SIGNAGE.

TOP RIGHT IS VIEW OF THE OVERALL PROPERTY FROM LAVON ROAD.

BOTTOM LEFT IS WEST OF THE OVERALL SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM LAVON AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS SOUTH OF THE OVERALL SUBJECT PROPERTY.

HERE IS THE SITE PLAN.

THIS IS WHAT IS EXISTING TODAY, THEY'RE NOT PROPOSING ANY ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THE SITE. IT DOES CONTAIN A MULTITENANT BUILDING AND THE APPLICANT PROPOSES A VARIANCE TO THE ATTACHED WALL SIGNAGE.

AND THE GDC ALLOWS A MAXIMUM SQUARE FOOTAGE OF TWO TIMES THE LINEAR FRONTAGE AND PER THAT CALCULATION, THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED IS TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET AND THE GDC ALSO ALLOWS THE PLANNING COMMISSION TO APPROVE AN ADDITIONAL TWENTY FIVE PERCENT OF THE SIGN AREA AND SO THE APPLICANT WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST TO INCREASE THAT TO TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHTY ONE SQUARE FEET. THIS IS THE ELEVATION FOR THE ATTACHED WALL SIGN AND THIS IS JUST A COMPARISON OF THE TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET, WHICH IS WHAT'S ALLOWED IN THE GDC AND THEN THE PROPOSED TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT ONE AND THE APPLICANT CONTENDS THE STORE FRONTAGE IS NARROWER THAN THE OTHER TENANT SPACES AND SO THE TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET WILL NOT ADEQUATELY ADVERTISE THE BUSINESS AND THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO INCREASE ASSIGNED AREA TO TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT ONE SQUARE FEET, AND THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED IS TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET AND THIS TABLE BELOW SHOWS THE EXISTING WALL SIGNS FOR TENANT SPACES. THE FIRST ONE IS FLOORING CONCEPT.

THE LINEAR WIDTH IS TWENTY TWO FEET.

THE MAXIMUM AREA ALLOWED IS FORTY FOUR SQUARE FEET.

PROVIDED IS FORTY THREE.

SECOND ONE IS [INAUDIBLE] DENTAL.

THE LINEAR WIDTH IS TWENTY NINE FEET AND THE MAXIMUM AREA ALLOWED IS FIFTY EIGHT SQUARE FEET AND PROVIDED IS FIFTY SIX SQUARE FEET AND THERE'S METROPCS, WHICH HAS A LINEAR WIDTH OF SIXTEEN FEET.

MAXIMUM AREA ALLOWED IS THIRTY TWO SQUARE FEET.

PROVIDED IS THIRTY TWO SQUARE FEET AND THEN THERE IS SUBWAY, WHICH HAS A LINEAR WIDTH OF TWENTY FEET. MAXIMUM AREA ALLOWED IS FORTY AND PROVIDED IS NINETEEN.

SO THE PROPOSED TENANT SPACE HAS A LINEAR WIDTH OF 12 FEET, SO IT IS RELATIVELY SMALLER THAN THE OTHER TENANT SPACES.

STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE VARIANCE TO CHAPTER FOUR, ARTICLE FIVE OF THE GARLAND DEVELOPMENT CODE REGARDING THE SIGN AREA FOR AN ATTACHED WALL SIGN, AND WE SENT OUT THRITY SIX LETTERS AND WE RECEIVED ONLY ONE RESPONSE, WHICH WAS WITHIN A NOTIFICATION AREA AND FOR THE REQUEST.

I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

I SEE NONE. THANK YOU.

THAT'S THE END OF OUR PRESENTATIONS, AND WE WILL TAKE A BREAK UNTIL SEVEN O'CLOCK.

[3C. Consideration of the application of Realty Capital Management, requesting approval of a Change of Zoning from Planned Development (PD) District 15-40 and Agricultural (AG) District to a Planned Development (PD) District for Multi-Family Uses. This property is located at 4425 Bunker Hill Road. (District 1) (File Z 21-60)]

NEXT ZONING CASE.

THIS IS JUST A ONE-PARTER CONSIDERATION OF THE APPLICATION OF REALTY CAPITAL MANAGEMENT REQUESTING APPROVAL OF A CHANGE OF ZONING FROM PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 15-40 AND

[00:20:05]

AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT FOR MULTIFAMILY USES.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 4425 BUNKER HILL ROAD AND I BELIEVE THE APPLICANT IS ON ZOOM, SO WE WILL SEE IF HE CAN HEAR US OR SHE.

CHAIRMAN ROBERTS? YES, WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ON ZOOM.

DID THE APPLICANT WANT TO MAKE A PRESENTATION OR JUST SEE IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS? YES, WE SEND AN APPLICATION AND A PRESENTATION.

ALRIGHTY. GO AHEAD AND IF YOU'LL STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS INTO YOUR OWN MICROPHONE FOR ME, PLEASE. ALRIGHT, MASON [INAUDIBLE] REALTY CAPITAL MANAGEMENT, WE'RE AT 909 LAKE CAROLYN PARKWAY, IRVING, TEXAS 75039.

TRACEY, LET ME KNOW WHEN THE PRESENTATION IS UP ON THE SCREEN OR IF I'M ABLE TO VIEW IT.

THEY'RE WORKING ON IT. OK.

JUST A SECOND AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S JUST COME UP.

ALL RIGHT AND TRACEY, DID YOU WANT TO JUST, I GUESS, FLIP TO THE NEXT SLIDE FOR ME WHEN I TELL YOU? IT'S BEEN TAKEN CARE OF, JUST LET US KNOW WHEN TO GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

PERFECT. ALL RIGHT. GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY.

GOOD EVENING, CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSION.

SO THIS IS WHAT WE'RE CALLING OUR PHASE FOUR OF THE DOMAIN AT FIREWHEEL MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT. YOU COULD GO OVER TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY BETWEEN REALTY CAPITAL MANAGEMENT AND GARLAND.

SO REALTY CAPITAL MANAGEMENT ACQUIRED ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY ACRES, ALL OF WHICH WAS IN THE FLOODPLAIN.

IT'S A LONG BUNKER HILL ROAD, AND SO BACK IN 2012, WE APPLIED FOR OUR CLOMR AND MOVED ABOUT SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND CUBIC YARDS OF DIRT TO RECLAIM WHAT IS TODAY THE THIRTY SIX ACRES OF THE PHASE ONE, TWO AND THREE LAND.

OUR LOMR BECAME EFFECTIVE IN DECEMBER TWENTY SEVENTEEN, WHICH IS SHORTLY BEFORE THE PHASE ONE PROJECT STARTED THEIR DEVELOPMENT, AND SO PHASE ONE IS BUILT OUT.

IT'S CALLED THE DOMAIN AT THE 140, AND PHASE TWO AND THREE WERE ITEMS ON EITHER PLANNING COMMISSION EARLIER IN 2021 OR WILL BE 2022 AGENDA ITEMS, BUT A BIT OF BACKGROUND ABOUT REALTY CAPITAL DEVELOPED A LOT OF PROJECTS OVER DFW AND A LITTLE BIT IN COLORADO.

WE'RE FAIRLY BUSY.

THE IMAGES BELOW ARE FROM SOME OF OUR PRODUCT PROJECTS, SO THE ONE ON THE LEFT IS THE LAKESIDE DEVELOPMENT.

IT'S A 160 ACRE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT IN FLOWER MOUND.

THE MIDDLE PICTURE IS A MULTIFAMILY PROJECT IN FORT WORTH CALLED THE [INAUDIBLE] AND THEN THE FAR RIGHT IS A ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT OFFICE BUILDING WITHIN THE LAKESIDE DEVELOPMENT.

THE NEXT ONE.

SO THE OBJECTIVE IS PRETTY SIMPLE, WE'RE BASICALLY ADDING ASKING FOR ABOUT TWO ACRES TO BE INCLUDED WITHIN PD15-40, WHICH IS OUTLINED BELOW, SO THAT HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW LINE SHOWS WHERE THE CURRENT ZONING LINE IS AND BASICALLY, IT'S ALL MULTIFAMILY USES WITHIN PD15-40, WHICH WAS APPROVED BACK IN 2015.

IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO THE REASON FOR THE ZONING IS BECAUSE OF THE PARK SIDE, BUNKER HILL DEVELOPMENT, BASICALLY JUST TO OUR NORTHWEST.

THAT'S A SINGLE FAMILY DEVELOPMENT THAT WAS APPROVED IN SEPTEMBER 2021.

WITH THEIR DEVELOPMENT, THEY ARE RECLAIMING ALL THE LAND FOR THEIR SINGLE FAMILY HOMES AND IT ACTUALLY RECLAIMS A PORTION OF OUR LAND, WHICH WE'RE CALLING THE PHASE FOUR LAND.

SO THAT AREA HIGHLIGHTED IN RED SHOWS ALL THE LAND THAT'S GOING TO BE RECLAIMED.

THAT LITTLE PORTION OF THAT TRIANGLE JUST ABOVE THE RED, IS WHAT WAS RECLAIMED IN THE ORIGINAL THIRTY SIX ACRES SO THAT REDD PLUS THAT LITTLE TRIANGLE WOULD BECOME THE PHASE FOUR LAND.

YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

UM, SO THIS IS AN OVERALL SURVEY, WHICH WOULD BE THE PHASE FOUR.

SO THAT'S THIRTEEN POINT THREE ACRES OUTLINED IN RED THERE.

THE NEXT SLIDE WILL SHOW THE APPROXIMATE TWO ACRES, WHICH BASICALLY SOUTHWEST OF THE

[00:25:01]

EXISTING BOUNDARY LINE THAT'S SHOWN RIGHT ABOVE THAT TO BE ADDED INTO OUR CURRENT ZONING, WHICH IS THE PD15-40.

SO NO CHANGES TO, YOU KNOW, ADDITIONAL UNITS, UNIT TYPE, UNIT MIX, BUILDING CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS, ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

BASICALLY JUST INCORPORATING TWO ADDITIONAL ACRES BECAUSE OF THE PARKSIDE BUNKER HILL DEVELOPMENT, WHICH WILL RECLAIM ADDITIONAL LAND AT THE FLOODPLAIN.

THE LAST SLIDE IS ANOTHER SLIDE JUST TO SHOW THE SITE BASICALLY TOP LEFT SHOWS PGBT AND THEN BUNKER HILL GOES IN THERE.

THE TWO BIG AMENITY PONDS, WHICH ARE GOING TO BE REALLY NICE FOR THE PHASE TWO AND THREE LAND WITH TRAILS AROUND EACH OF THOSE BASICALLY ALL THE IMAGES TO SHOW A LITTLE BIT OF PHASE ONE ON THE TWO RIGHT ONES AND THE BOTTOM LEFT IS KIND OF A GOOD AERIAL OF JUST TWO AND THREE HOW THEY LOOK CURRENTLY.

NEXT SLIDE. JUST ANOTHER, YOU KNOW, BACKGROUND OF CAPITAL MANAGEMENT.

THOSE ARE THREE MANAGING DIRECTORS.

AT ANY GIVEN TIME, IT'S BETWEEN ONE HUNDRED AND TWO HUNDRED MILLION WORTH OF PROJECTS.

SO THAT COULD BE RETAIL OFFICE, MIXED USE MULTIFAMILY, SINGLE FAMILY HOMES WITHIN DFW AND COLORADO AREAS AND WITH THAT, I WILL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

ANY QUESTIONS OF THE APPLICANT? I SEE NONE AND ANYBODY IN THE AUDIENCE, I DON'T THINK SO, ALRIGHTY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'LL COMMISSION MOTION OR DISCUSSION.

IT'S OPEN FOR ANYBODY TO MAKE A MOTION ON THIS ONE.

COMMISSIONER PARIS.

I MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT THE [INAUDIBLE] AS PRESENTED.

ALRIGHTY. MOTION TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION AS PRESENTED FROM COMMISSIONER PARIS.

DO I HEAR A SECOND? SECOND.

AND THE SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS. WE HAVE MOTION BY COMMISSIONER PARIS, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION. SEEING NO DISCUSSION.

PLEASE VOTE AND THAT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

WELL DONE, SIR, THANK YOU.

NEXT ITEM IN OUR AGENDA IS A MISCELLANEOUS ITEM CONSIDERATION OF THE APPLICATION OF ANY

[4A. Consideration of the application of Anylab Test Now - Garland, requesting approval of a Variance to Chapter 4, Article 5 of the Garland Development Code regarding sign area for an attached wall sign. This property is located at 3046 Lavon Drive, Suite 120. (District 1) (File SV 21-02)]

LAB TEST NOW. GARLAND REQUESTING APPROVAL OF A VARIANCE TO CHAPTER FOUR, ARTICLE FIVE OF THE GARLAND DEVELOPMENT CODE REGARDING SIGNED AREA FOR AN ATTACHED TO WALL SIGN.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT THREE ZERO FOUR SIX LAVON DRIVE, SUITE 120 AND I BELIEVE THAT'S PROBABLY THE APPLICANT OUT IN FRONT AND I'LL ASK, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OF THE APPLICANT ON THIS ONE? YOU'RE WELCOME TO MAKE A PRESENTATION IF YOU WANT.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY. MY NAME IS RAJIV VERMA.

WE LIVE AT 706 LONG DRIVE IN ALLEN, TEXAS.

OH, YOU DO HAVE A PRESENTATION THERE? YES. YES, I WAS ASKED AND I'M GLAD TO BE HERE.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

SO MY NAME IS RAJIV.

ME AND MY WIFE, WE OWN THIS BUSINESS CALLED ANY LAB TEST NOW THREE UNITS THREE FRANCHISE LOCATIONS IN DENTON MESQUITE AND NOW IN GARLAND SINCE LAST MONTH.

SO ANY LAB TEST NOW, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FRANCHISE.

IT'S A DIRECT ACCESS LAB WHERE ANYBODY CAN JUST WALK IN WHATEVER TESTS THEY NEED.

WE DO OVER 8000 TESTS, MOSTLY CLINICAL DRUG TESTING, DNA ALLERGIES, YOU NAME IT.

MOST OF THEM WE HAVE.

AS A FRANCHISE, THIS IS BASED OUT OF ATLANTA.

THERE ARE ABOUT TWO HUNDRED STORES IN 15 STATES.

HERE WITHIN THE METROPLEX, WE HAVE ABOUT 20 STORES, AND THIS GARLAND LOCATION, OUR THIRD SITE WAS OPENED LAST MONTH AT THIS IS THE LOCATION WHERE IT IS 3046 LAVON DRIVE.

IT'S A VERY SMALL STORE JUST SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN SQUARE FEET, ROUGHLY TWELVE BY SIXTY SEVEN FEET IN SIZE AND THIS IS WHERE IT IS LOCATED RIGHT OVER HERE, ANY LAB TEST

[00:30:05]

NOW AND OUR NEIGHBORING STORE IS FLOORING CONCEPTS ON ONE SIDE AND FLAMING BUFFET ON THE OTHER SIDE, WHICH MOSTLY FACES THE LAVON STREET.

HISTORICALLY BEFORE FLOORING CONCEPT AND OUR STORE, THEY USED TO BE ALL ONE STORE WHEN THEY OPENED FLOORING CONCEPTS, THEY PROBABLY, UH, CUT THE STORE A LITTLE BIT TO KEEP THE LOWER SIZE, AND THE LEFTOVER IS WHERE WE CAME.

SO AS I MENTIONED, WE OPENED IT LAST MONTH, AND THIS IS ALL NEW CONSTRUCTION INSIDE AND WE ARE VERY HAPPY TO BE THERE.

ANY QUESTIONS SO FAR? NO, THANK YOU. HERE, THIS IS JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE FRONT SIDE FLOORING CONCEPTS IS ON OUR LEFT SIDE.

SO AS I MENTIONED, THE WIDTH OF THE STORY IS QUITE SMALL.

JUST 12 FEET AND AS PER THE ALLOWANCE, THE ALLOWED SIZE WAS 40 SQUARE FEET.

THE STORE IS UNUSUALLY NARROW, BUT IT SUITS OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BUSINESS VERY WELL.

SO WE WENT WITH IT HOW WE'RE PUTTING OUT THE SIGNAGE OUTSIDE.

WE THOUGHT IF IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO MAKE IT LITTLE BIGGER, WHATEVER IS ALLOWED BY CITY AND THAT WE INQUIRED.

SO, YES, THERE'S A PROCESS I WAS TOLD BY VARIANTS WHERE WE CAN GET TWENTY FIVE PERCENT HIGHER BY AREA, NOT BY PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS.

SO THAT WOULD COME TO ABOUT 30 SQUARE FEET.

SO WE WENT BACK WITH OUR CORPORATE SIGNAGE COMPANY AND THEY REDUCED THE SIZE AND THEY EXACTLY CANNOT [INAUDIBLE], OF COURSE, 30 SQUARE FEET BECAUSE OF THE PROPORTION BETWEEN WIDTH AND HEIGHT. IT CAME TO ABOUT TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT SQUARE FEET AND THAT'S WHAT WE ARE REQUESTING, IF WE CAN PUT THERE AND WE BELIEVE, YOU KNOW, SINCE IT'S A CORNER STONE AND THERE IS NOTHING ON THE LEFT SIDE EITHER.

SO THAT WOULD NOT LOOK VERY INAPPROPRIATE OR NOT FITTING THE BUILDING SURROUNDINGS.

SO THERE'S A WIDER SPACE OUTSIDE, AS YOU CAN SEE ON THIS SIDE.

SO THIS IS REALLY THE ACTUAL COMPARISON.

TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET AND WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING HERE, WHICH IS LITTLE LESS THAN THIRTY, TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT SQUARE FEET AND THIS IS EXACTLY TO THE SCALE HOW IT WOULD LOOK LIKE.

THIS IS TWENTY FOUR SQUARE FEET AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT SQUARE FEET.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE KIND OF RELATIVE SIZE OF IT COMPARED TO THE SIGNAGE NEXT DOOR.

SO SINCE IT'S AN AREA DIFFERENCE OF TWENTY FIVE PERCENT, IT'S ROUGHLY ONE POINT FOUR FEET BIGGER THAN THE ONE ON THE LEFT SIDE, ALLOWED IN THE WIDTH AND ABOUT THREE INCHES MORE IN HEIGHT. IF WE GO FROM TWENTY FOUR TO TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT SQUARE FEET.

SO THIS IS KIND OF THE KEY SLIDE FOR IT, AND THEN THESE ARE THE ACTUAL DESIGNS DONE BY THE SIGNING COMPANY.

THIS IS 24 SQUARE FEET AND THIS ONE IS TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT IT STATES HERE.

I'M OPEN TO ANY QUESTIONS.

SURE, COMMISSIONER JENKINS AND THEN COMMISSIONER ROSE GOOD EVENING, SIR.

HOW MUCH OF YOUR TRAFFIC IS WALK IN APPOINTMENTS? HOW MUCH IS WALKING APPOINTMENTS, YOU SAID, SIR? IT'S ACTUALLY PRETTY MUCH EVERY MOST OF THE TRAFFIC IS SO NO REFERRALS TO THE OFFICE.

IT'S BECAUSE PEOPLE SEE FROM AFAR.

I DIDN'T GET YOUR QUESTION CORRECTLY.

SO YES, THERE ARE REFERRALS AS WELL AS WALK INS.

AS THE BUSINESS GROWS, WE HAVE MORE REFERRALS.

SO I WOULD SAY ONE, TWO YEARS FROM NOW, I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 50 PERCENT WOULD BE REFERRAL AND 50 IS JUST WALKING.

IF SOMEBODY NEEDS ANY TEST, THEY JUST COME IN.

THANK YOU. THANKS.

THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER ROSE? YOU HAVE PLANS TO ELIMINATE THIS SIGN AT ALL IN ANY WAY.

IT CAN BE ELIMINATED.

REGULAR SIGN LIKE THE NEIGHBORING SIGN.

OK, GOOD.

[00:35:03]

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OF THE APPLICANT? ALRIGHTY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COMING DOWN.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

SINCE THERE'S NOBODY ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE.

COMMISSIONER'S, MOTION, DISCUSSION? CHAIRMAN, COMMISSIONER JENKINS? I MAKE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND MOVE TO DISCUSSION.

ALRIGHTY, WE HAVE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS, YOU CHIMED IN, DID YOU CARE TO SECOND THAT? YES. OKAY, WE HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER JENKINS AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS TO CLOSE A PUBLIC HEARING.

ALRIGHT, PLEASE VOTE, THIS IS JUST TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

HERE WE GO AND IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY, WE ARE IN DISCUSSION MODE NOW.

COMMISSIONER JENKINS.

CHAIRMAN, THIS IS THE TWO THINGS I'D LIKE TO JUST BRING TO THE COMMISSION'S ATTENTION THAT THE CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL REQUIRES FIRST A THREE FOURTHS VOTE OF THE PANEL BEFORE WE CAN PROCEED, OR WE CAN APPROVE THE APPLICANT'S APPLICATION.

SO IT NEEDS TO BE A PRESUMING THAT THE APPLICANT IS NOT JUST GOING TO GET A UNANIMOUS DECISION BY ALL OF US.

IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST THE FOURTH OF US THREE FOURTHS OF THIS BODY.

FORGIVE ME. YEAH, THAT'LL TAKE FIVE OUT OF SIX, FIVE OUT OF SEVEN.

THE SECOND IS I AM CONCERNED THAT BY GRANTING THE MAXIMUM ALLOTMENT THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THAT WE WILL ENCOURAGE OTHER APPLICANTS TO ALWAYS SEEK THE MAXIMUM WHERE IT MAY NOT BE WARRANTED.

THE CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL INDICATE THAT ECONOMIC HARDSHIP IS NOT THE ONLY CONSIDERATION THAT WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT AND ALTHOUGH HE IS AT THE CORNER AND IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE HIS NEIGHBOR WOULD BE HARMED IN ANY WAY BY HAVING A LARGER SIGN, I'M CONCERNED ABOUT FUTURE APPLICANTS THAT COME BEFORE AND ASK FOR THE MAXIMUM WHERE THEY CAN DO 20 PERCENT, OR THEY COULD DO 15 PERCENT OR SOMETHING OF THE SORT.

SO AT THIS TIME, I'M ON THE FENCE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR APPLICATION.

THANK YOU. ALRIGHTY.

COMMISSIONER ROSE. I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN, SIR.

HOWEVER, FUTURE APPLICANTS WILL HAVE TO COME BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND MAKE THEIR PITCH, AND THAT'S UP TO THEM TO CONVINCE THE COMMISSION/COUNCIL TO MAKE THE SWITCH, MAKE MAKE IT. SO I DON'T DISAGREE WITH YOU, BUT I DON'T THINK THAT SHOULD BE THE NEGATIVE UNDERSTANDING FOR THIS REQUEST.

EVERYONE HAS TO MAKE THEIR OWN PITCH.

THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS. I AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER ROSE AND MR. JENKINS. IT'S ONLY ACCORDING TO THE APPLICANT, IT'S ONLY ONE FOOT POINT FOUR FEET WIDER AND THREE INCHES TALLER, WHICH I THINK THAT'S MINIMAL, BASICALLY COMPARED TO 10 FEET OR FIVE FEET OR WHATEVER AND THEN I'M THINKING, IF YOU LOOK AT IT FROM THE STREET, YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO TELL IT'S TWENTY NINE POINT EIGHT OR TWENTY FIVE, BASICALLY, IT'S NOT THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE.

I DO UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERNS AND I DO AGREE WITH THEM, BUT IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, IT'S A VERY MINIMAL REQUEST, IN MY OPINION.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER OTT.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. I AM IN SUPPORT FOR THIS REQUEST, BUT I UNDERSTAND COMMISSIONER JENKINS CONCERNS IS THAT BY PERCENTAGE, IT'S A FAIR INCREASE IN SIZE AND IF WE WERE DEALING WITH ANOTHER LOCATION, ANOTHER SIGN AND WE WERE INCREASING IT BY A FAIR PERCENTAGE THAN IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE OF CONCERN, BUT THE LOCATION OF IT, THE AND I THINK IT WILL BE JUST FINE IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE AND LIKE THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS STATED, EACH ONE HAS TO STAND ON ITS OWN MERITS.

SO I TOO WOULD BE IN SUPPORT.

ANY OTHER? I'LL JUST PUT IN A COUPLE.

FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR THEIR MIND ABOUT THE THREE QUARTER VOTE.

[00:40:02]

I WOULD HAVE TOTALLY MISSED THAT.

THANK YOU. SECOND, ANOTHER CRITERIA IS THAT IT HAS TO BE A VARIANCE ON SOMETHING PHYSICAL, NOT OF THEIR OWN MAKING.

WELL, THIS IS A STRANGE LEASE SPACE, 12 FEET WIDE PIE SHAPE AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

SO I THINK THERE IS A PHYSICALITY IN HERE TO WARRANT US LOOKING AT IT AND PART OF WHAT THEY'RE FIGHTING AGAINST IS AND THIS IS AGAIN THROUGH NO FAULT OF ITS OWN IS THROUGH THE CORPORATE SIGNAGE.

IT'S GOT A TAIL ON THE SIGN UNDERNEATH THE WORD NOW THAT'S BEING INCLUDED AS PART OF THE CALCULATION. AND SO PART OF THE INCREASE WON'T EVEN GO TO THE LETTERING.

IT GOES TO THAT TAIL AND A SIGN WHICH, BY OUR DEFINITION, WE COUNT.

SO IN THOSE TWO RESPECTS, I'M IN FAVOR OF THIS ONE, AND I DON'T THINK IT'LL BE NOTICEABLE. IT'LL STILL BE SMALLER THAN EVERYTHING BUT THE SUBWAY AND IT'S KIND OF STRANGE THAT THE SUBWAY IS AT 19 FEET AND THEY HAD THE ABILITY TO GO.

SO THAT WAS A CONSCIOUS DECISION ON THEIR PART.

SO I'M GOING TO VOTE FOR THIS ONE IF A MOTION COMES THROUGH TO APPROVE AND THEN COMMISSIONER PARIS.

IF I'M CORRECT, THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY ENCROACHMENT ONTO THE FLOORING SIGN ON YOUR NEIGHBORING. YEAH AND OUR VARIANCE WOULD NOT ALLOW HIM TO ENCROACH BEYOND THE BORDERS OF THEIR STORE FRONTAGE AND THEN COMMISSIONER JENKINS? MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS ITEM, AS PRESENTED.

SECOND. MOTION BY COMMISSIONER JENKINS, THE SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS, TO APPROVE THIS ITEM AS PRESENTED.

NO DISCUSSION, PLEASE VOTE, THAT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK THANK YOU, EVERYBODY, AND AGAIN, WELCOME COMMISSIONER BAUGHMAN.

THAT WAS THE LAST ITEM ON OUR AGENDA AND CONGRATULATIONS, SIR, AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BUSINESS. SO UNTIL OUR MEETING OF FEBRUARY 16TH, WHICH WILL BE A WEDNESDAY, SO IF YOU TUNE IN ON MONDAY OF THAT WEEK, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE US, YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO SEE A CITY COUNCIL.

WE ARE MUCH MORE INTERESTING.

SO TUNE IN ON FEBRUARY 16TH.

THANK YOU.
