NEXT PLAT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS FINAL PLAT 2121, THIS IS A PORTION OF THAT FORREST HILL RETAIL DEVELOPMENT ONCE AGAIN AT THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF BUFFALO GAP ROAD AND FORREST HILL ROAD.

[ZONING]

ZSKS-2021-06 REPRESENTED BY JACOB AND MARTIN TO AMEND TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO DISTRICT 82 SPECIFICALLY AS IT AFFECTS CERTAIN COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES AND

EAST LOOP 322. >> THANK YOU.

MY NAME IS JARED SMITH. I WILL BE PRESENTING Z-2021--06. SIX PROPERTIES BEING AFFECTED BY THIS ZONE CHANGE REQUEST WITH THOSE SIX PROPERTIES THERE ARE FIVE SEPARATE PROPERTY OWNERS ALL OF WHOM ARE LISTED HERE ON THIS SLIDE.

THESE PROPERTY OWNERS ARE REPRESENTED BY JACOB AND MARTIN. THE REQUEST IS TO AMEND THE TERM AND CONDITIONS. SPECIFICALLY THE REQUEST IS TO REMOVE ALL DEVELOPMENT-RELATED RETRIS THAT ARE APPLICABLE TO TRACT 1.

IT'S BROKEN INTO TRACK ONE AND TRACK TWO.

TRACK TWO IS NORTH OF LONE STAR DRIVE.

THE REQUEST IS TO REMOVE DEVELOPMENT RESTRICTIONS TO TRACT 1 AND APPLY A AGAIN RETAIL ZONING DISTRICT.

LOCATION IS 4300 BLOCK WHICH IS EAST SIDE OF ON THE EAST SIDE OF LOOP 322 AT 4401 THROUGH 4449 LOOP 322 AND AT 4004 THROUGH 442 LONE STAR DRIVE.

PLANNING STAFF SENT OUT NOTIFICATION LETTERS OF ALL PROPERTY OWNERS. WE RECEIVED ONE RESPONSE IN FAVOR AND ONE IN OPPOSITION. HERE'S OUR AREA LOCATION MAP SHOWING AERIAL VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

WE'RE ON THE EAST SIDE OF LOOP 322.

JUST NORTH OF WHERE PRIME TIME IS CURRENTLY LOCATED AND JUST WEST OF THE EXISTING LONE STAR RANCH

[00:10:04]

SUBDIVISION. CURRENT ZONING MAP SHOWING THAT THE SUBJECT PROPERTY DOES CURRENTLY FALL WITHIN A PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT. AS I SATED PD 82 SPANSED ON THE SOUTH SIDE AND NORTH SIDE SO SOUTH IS A CONTINUATION OF PD-82 JUST EAST IS ANOTHER LONE STAR RANCH SUBDIVISION. GENERAL COMMERCIAL ZONING AS WELL AS COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY ZONING THAT IS THE SITE OF CISCO JUNIOR COLLEGE AT THIS TIME.

THIS SHOWS ALL THE USES THAT WILL BE PERMITTED WITH THIS AMENDMENT. IF WE DO APPROVE IT LOOKS I SAID IT WILL EFFECTIVELY FUNCTION AS IF IT WERE A GENERAL RETAIL ZONING THAT'S THE REASON WHY WE PROVIDED THE PERMITTED USE SLIDES. GRAPHIC CONCEPT PLAN THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT PLAN THAT WAS PROVIDED WITH THE INITIAL PD-82 REQUEST AS YOU CAN SEE IT'S BROKEN INTO TRACK ONE AND TRACK TWO. THIS AMENDMENT ONLY APPLIES TO TRACK ONE WHICH IS NORTH OF LONE STAR DRIVE.

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTIES.

HERE'S OUR NOTIFICATION MAP SHOWING 200 FOOTNOTE INDICATION AREA. WITNESS AGAIN ALL PROPERTY OWNERSLE IF WITHIN THIS NOTIFICATION AREA WERE NOTIFIED OF THIS Q WE DID RECEIVE ONE RESPONSE IN FAVOR ILLUSTRATED WITH THE GREEN DOT AND ONE RESPONSE IN OPPOSITION WHICH IS ILLUSTRATED WITH A RED DOT.

STAFF DID FIND THAT THIS REQUEST WAS CONSISTENT WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND THE FUTURE LAND USE AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN MAP. IT WAS REVIEWED PURSUANT TO SECTION 1414 OF THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE WHICH IS OUR CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL AND STAFF IS RECOMMENDING APPROVAL TO Y'ALL TODAY. HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE AT THIS TIME.

>> WOULD YOU SAY BECAUSE IN THAT P.D. THERE WAS QUITE A LIST OF ACCEPTABLE USES. WOULD YOU SAY THAT THE GENERAL RETAIL IS ABOUT THE SAME OR A LITTLE LESS RESTRICTIVE. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY, THERE

JARED? >> IT IS MORE OR LESS THE SAME SO MUCH I HAVE ACTUALLY FINE TOOTH COMBED THE PD PERMITTED USE LIST. MOST ALL THINGS THAT ARE THERE CURRENTLY ARE -- OR ALL THINGS ARE PERMITTED WE ARE NOT CREATING ANY LEGALLY NONCONFORMING USES.

AS FAR AS WHAT WOULD NO LONGER BE PERMITTED IT REALLY IS RESIDENTIAL. SO THE CURRENT P.D. ALLOWED FOR DUPLEXES MANUFACTURED HOME, PATTYO HOMES, RV PARKS WOULD NO LONGER BE PERMITTED WITH THIS AMENDMENT.

MULTIFAMILY WOULD BE ALLOWED BUT THEY WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK THROUGH YOU WITH A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT.

AS FAR AS COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT REALLY ONLY THING THAT ARE NO LONGER PERMITTED DELIVERY SERVICES.

WE CONSIDER THAT LIKE A FEDEX DISTRIBUTION CENTER OR LIKE AN AMAZON DISTRIBUTION CENTER THAT WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED. A DIAPER SERVICE, WHICH I REALLY WASN'T SURE WHAT THAT MEANT FOR A WHILE.

BRAED HAD TO CLARIFY IT TO ME.

BUT IT -- BRAD HAD TO CLARIFY IT TO ME.

AND FOOD LOCKER WHICH IS LONG-TERM STORAGE OF FOOD SERVICES THOSE ARE THE THREE COMMERCIAL USES THAT WOULD NO LONGER BE ALLOWED. OTHER THAN THAT EVERYTHING ELSE WOULD CONTINUE TO BE ALLOWED IT.

>> LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS SOME SIGNAGE REQUIREMENTS TOO. WOULD THEY STILL FALL WITHIN

THE SIGNAGE STUFF? >> NO.

SO THE CURRENT SIGN STANDARDS THAT ARE APPLICABLE TO TRACK ONE WOULD BE REMOVED WITH THIS REQUEST. SO THE SIGNS ARE PERMITTED BY GENERAL RETAIL SO WE'RE NOT CREATING ANY LEGALLY NONCONFORMING SIGNS. A LOT OF THAT APPLIED TO LIKE BUILDING MATERIALS WHICH WE'RE NOT EVEN ABLE TO ENFORCE ANYMORE. ASIDE FROM THAT THERE WAS ALSO LANDSCAPING REQUIREMENTS WHICH WOULD EFFECTIVELY BE REMOVED WITH THIS AMENDMENT AS WELL.

>> SO THE BUFFER BETWEEN THE RESIDENTIAL THAT'S THERE WAS THAT IN THE PD OR WILL THAT BE A REQUIREMENT NOW FOR

THAT? >> SO THAT WAS NO, IT NOT ORIGINALLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PD.

SO THAT IS SOMETHING THAT MOVING FORWARD THEY WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE IS A TYPE BX BUFFER.

>> AS THAT OPEN SPOT DEVELOPS THEY WILL HAVE TO

WORK ON THAT BUFFER. >> CORRECT.

THERE'S ACTUALLY A DRAINAGE FEATURE THERE THAT WILL PROBABLY SERVICE AS MOST OF THAT LAND USE BUFFER.

BUT YES, IT WILL HAVE TO BE SOMETHING THEY WILL ADDRESS DURING THE SITE PLANNING PROCESS.

>> ANYBODY ELSE GOT ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I WAS GOING TO ASK ABOUT THE BUFFERS YOU GOT IT

COVERED. >> DID THE NEGATIVE RESPONSE

LIST ANYTHING? >> NO THEY JUST SENT BACK THE COMMENT SLIP WITH NOTHING ON IT.

JUST IN OPPOSITION. >> THANKS JARED.

>> THANK YOU. >> I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYONE LIKE TO COME AND

SPEAK TO THIS? >> GOOD AFTERNOON AGENT FOR THE PROPERTY OWNERS. THIS ZONE CHANGE REQUEST IS SIMPLY TO PROVIDE A LITTLE BIT MORE FLEXIBILITY TO THE PROPERTY OWNERS AS THE PROPERTY CONTINUES TO

[00:15:02]

DEVELOP. THERE'S ABOUT FIVE ACRES THERE THAT'S UNDEVELOPED. OBVIOUSLY, A GOOD PORTION OF THAT IS LEASED SPACE AND THERE ARE A HANDFUL OF NEW USES THAT WERE ADDED IN THE GENERAL RETAIL THAT THE PROPERTY OWNERS WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF. AS JARED POINTED OUT, FROM A BUFFERING STANDPOINT TO THE RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY TO THE EAST, IT'S MORE SIGNIFICANT THE TYPE OF BUFFER THAT YOU GUYS ARE PROBABLY FAMILIAR WITH.

LIKE STAFF WE ALSO BELIEVE THAT THE CHANGE IS APPROPRIATE. WE ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

>> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.

>> WHAT ARE THE FEW THAT WERE ADDED?

>> THE ADDED -- >> TO THE GENERAL RETAIL.

>> THE USES? >> UH-HUH.

>> SO WILL ARE A FEW ADDITIONAL USES THAT WILL BE ALLOWED. THE UNIVERSITY OR COLLEGE ON TRACT 1 YOU COULD DO A MEDICAL LABORATORY.

YOU COULD KENNELS WITHOUT OUTDOOR PINS IT HAS TO BE ENTIRELY ENDOORS. YOU CAN DO MANUFACTURING INCIDENTAL EXACTLY AS IT SOUNDS.

INCIDENTAL TO AN EXISTING COMMERCIAL USE IT CAN'T BE THE PRIMARY USE OF THE SITE. AND TATTOO PARLORS WOULD BE ALLOWED BUT THEY HAVE TO GET A CONDITIONAL USE.

SOCIAL SERVICE FACILITIES ALSO ALLOWED WITH THE CUP FUNERAL HOMES AND FREIGHT CONTAINERS ALSO WOULD BE PERMITTED WITH C.U.P.S. AND JUST TO KIND OF ADD ONTO THAT A FEW OF THE PREVIOUS USES THAT WERE ALLOWED BY RIGHT WILL NOW REQUIRE PERMITS THOSE BE GOLF RANGING, GOLF COURSES, PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS, BUSINESS COMMERCIAL DRIVING OR TRADE SCHOOLS AND CAR WASHES.

THOSE ARE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO.

>> RIGHT. THANKS.

>> ANYONE ELSE LIKE TO SPEAK?

>> WE'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR JARED OR ENTERTAIN A

MOTION. >> I'LL MOVE TO APPROVE IT.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE. >> SECOND.

>> SECOND. >> WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

THE MOTION CARRIES. >> MOVING ON TO Z-2021-07 I RECEIVED A REPORT ON A REQUEST FOR HEART OF TEXAS HEARING CENTERS REPRESENTED BY FALLEN TO REZONE FROT A NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE TO PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT. BRAD.

>> THANK YOU MR. CHAIRMAN. MY NAME IS BRAD STONE AND I'M A MEMBER OF THE CITY PLANNING STAFF.

THIS REQUEST IS TO CHANGE THE ZONING OF THIS ONE PROPERTY AT 5919 BUFFALO GAP ROAD FROM A NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT.

EACH PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT IS A CUSTOM-MADE ZONING CLASSIFICATION WHICH IS HOPEFULLY TAILORED TO MATCH THE UNIQUE DEMANDS OF A PARTICULAR DEVELOPMENT TO THE LIMITATIONS OF ITS SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENT.

IF THIS PROPOSED P.D. DISTRICT IS APPROVED THE USE AND DEVELOPMENT OF THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS THE EXISTING NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONING.

THAT RETAIL SALES OF APPAREL AND RELATED ACCESSORIES WOULD ALSO BE ALLOWED ON THESE SAME PREMISES.

THIS AERIAL PHOTO FROM 2011, HIGHLIGHTS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND THE VERY CENTER OF THE IMAGE.

UP UNTIL PROPOSAL THREE YEARS AGO.

THE BUILDING ON THIS PROPERTY WAS A RESIDENCE.

IN 2018, THE PROPERTY WAS REZONED TO ITS PRESENT NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE CLASSIFICATION.

AS THE NAME IMPLIES, NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONING IS LIMITED TO ADMINISTRATIVE, BUSINESS, AND PROFESSIONAL OFFICES WITH SOME ADDED LIMITATIONS ON BUILDING SIZE AND HOURS OF OPERATION ALL OF WHICH ARE INTENDED TO ENSURE SOME REASONABLE COMPATIBILITY WITH ADJACENT AND NEARBY RESIDENCES. THE PROPOSED P.D. DISTRICT WOULD KEEP ALL THOSE SAME LIMITATIONS EXCEPT THAT RETAIL SALES OF APPAREL AND RELATED ACCESSORIES WOULD ALSO BE ALLOWED IN ADDITION TO OFFICE USES.

THIS AERIAL PHOTO ALSO SHOWS EXISTING RESIDENCES TO THE EAST, TO THE SOUTH, AND EVEN TO THE WEST ACROSS THE WIDTH OF BUFFALO GAP ROAD. THESE RESIDENCES ARE ALL

[00:20:05]

LOCATED IN RESIDENTIAL ZONING DISTRICTS AS INDICATED BY THE DIFFERENT SHADES OF YELLOW ON THIS ZONING MAP. THE COLOR BLUE REPRESENTS EXISTING NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONING.

AS YOU MIGHT RECALL FROM THE PREVIOUS SLIDE, THE LOTS IMMEDIATELY NORTH FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY ARE STILL VACANT BUT AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS SIDE AS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY. WHICH, OF COURSE, IS STRIPED IN THE VERY CENTER OF THIS IMAGE.

>> IN 2019, OH, EXCUSE ME. THIS IS A LISTING A SPECIFIC LISTING OF THOSE ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE PERMITTED OR ARE PERMITTED WITH APPROVAL OF CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT IN THE EXISTING NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONING CLASSIFICATION.

IN 2019 THE ORIGINAL RESIDENCE ON THIS PROPERTY WAS CONVERTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE SPECIFICALLY AS AN OFFICE AND CLINIC FOR AN AUDIOLOGIST.

AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS SITE PLAN THAT INCLUDED PROVIDING A PAVED CONCRETE APRON IN THE FRONT YARD TO USE FOR MOBILE PARKING. THE AUDIOLOGIST HAS SINCE MOVED AND NOW SEEKS TO LEASE THIS SUBJECT PROPERTY AS RETAIL SPACE FOR AN APPAREL BOUTIQUE.

I HAVE A FEW PHOTOS OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND ITS SURROUNDING IN THE UPPER LEFT IS A PHOTO FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY LOOKING SOUTH TO A NEARBY RESIDENCE IN THE UPPER RIGHT IS A PICTURE TAKEN FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY ACROSS THE STREET TO AN EXISTING RESIDENCE ACROSS THE WIDTH OF BUFFALO GAP ROAD THE LOWER LEFT SHOWS AGAIN IT'S TAKEN FROM THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND IS LOOKING NORTH.

THERE ARE THE VACANTS NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONE LOTS DIRECTLY TO THE NORTH AND BEYOND THAT IS AN OFFICE COMPLEX AGAIN IN THIS SAME NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE LOWER RIGHT IS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY ITSELF.

18 OWNERS OF ADJACENT AND NEARBY PROPERTY WERE FORMALLY NOTIFIED OF THIS REQUEST PLUS, THE OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY. WRITTEN RESPONSES IN FAVOR WERE RECEIVED FROM TWO OF THESE PROPERTY OWNERS INCLUDING ONE OF THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY ITSELF.

WRITTEN PONCE RESPONSES IN OPPOSITION WERE RECEIVED FROM THREE OWNERS OF JAYSENT AND NEARBY PROPERTY AND IN THIS CASE I HAVE SOME ACTUAL WRITTEN COMMENTS BOTH IN FAVOR AND IN OPPOSITION. FROM THE OWNER OF PROPERTY DIRECTLY TO THE SOUTH OF THIS SUBJECT PROPERTY THEY RESPONDED BY SAYING I HAVE NO NEGATIVE FEELINGS AFTER SEEING THIS BUSINESS IN OPERATION.

IT HAS NO DIFFERENT IMPACT ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAN THE ONE THERE PREVIOUSLY. THEY GO ONTO SAY THAT THEY ARE QUIET AND KEEP IMMACULATE PREMISES.

THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD NEIGHBORS.

I ALSO GOT SOME COMMENTS IN OPPOSITION FROM FROM A NEIGHBOR DIRECTLY TO THE EAST WITH AN ADDRESS ON GLEN ABBY. THE ZONING WAS CHANGED FROM RESIDENTIAL TO NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE TO ACCOMMODATE THE HEARING AID CENTER. I UNDERSTAND THIS IS BUFFALO GAP ROAD AND THINGS WILL CHANGE.

HOWEVER, HAVING LIVED HERE ALMOST 35 YEARS I BELIEVE OUR HOME DEVELOPMENT AREA NEEDS TO BE RECOGNIZED, PROTECTED AND PRESERVED AND ANOTHER CHANGE IN DONNING WILL LIKELY JEOPARDIZE THIS AREA.

CITY STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVING THIS PROPOSED PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT. EXPANDING THE RANGE OF ALLOWED COMMERCIAL USES TO INCLUDE JUST RETAIL SALE OF APROPERLY -- APPAREL IS ANTICIPATED TO HAVE ONLY A NEGLIGIBLE IMPACT ON THE INTENSITY OF ACTIVITY ALLOWED THERE. FOR EXAMPLE, THIS PROPOSED EXPANSION OF ALLOWED USE IS NOT EXPECTED TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE THE VOLUME OF TRAFFIC FLOW TO AND FROM THIS LOCATION AS COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS

[00:25:05]

PROFESSIONAL OFFICES THERE. I WILL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE ON THIS IT.

>> DO THEY HAVE TO ADD PARKING SPACES?

>> NO. NO.

THE REQUIRED OFF STREET PARKING FOR OFFICE USE IS THE SAME AS FOR RETAIL USE. NO SO THERE'S NO CHANGE.

>> WOULD THE HOURS OF OPERATION BE THE SAME IS CURRENTLY LIMITED UNDER THE AUDIOLOGIST?

>> THAT IS CORRECT. ALL THE ORDINARY LIMITATIONS OF NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE ZONING WOULD REMAIN THE SAME. THIS INCLUDES THE LIMITATIONS ON THE HOURS OF OPERATION, THE 35 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT. OH, A MAXIMUM 15,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING SIZE. THANK YOU.

>> WE WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

WOULD ANYBODY LIKE TO COME AND SPEAK TO THIS ITEM?

>> MY NAME IS -- I'M THE OWNER OF TRE CHIC BOUTIQUE.

MY VISION FOR TRE CHIC IS TO BE A NEIGHBORHOOD BOUTIQUE.

A PLACE WHERE WOMEN CAN COME HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE, FIND WONDERFUL ITEMS, GIFTS THINGS FOR THEMSELVES.

AT TRE CHIC WE CARRY CLOTHING, HANDBAGS, JEWELERY AND GIFTS AND SOME HOME DECOR.

OUR HOURS OF OPERATION ARE TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY 10:00 TO 6:00. WE ARE QUIET, WE WILL NOT CAUSE ANY -- WE WILL NOT CAUSE ANY TROUBLE WHATSOEVER. I HAVE HAD A BOUTIQUE IN BALLINGER FOR 13 YEARS. I HAVE CHOSE TO EXPAND MY BOUTIQUE TO ABILENE JUST BECAUSE I FELT THERE WAS A NEED FOR IT. I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING AN ACTIVE PART OF ABILENE AND THIS COMMUNITY AND I VOW TO BE A TRUE ASSET TO THIS COMMUNITY AND TO BE AS INVOLVED AS POSSIBLE. I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND YOUR CONSIDERATION. I HOPE YOU CONSIDER APPROVING MY REZONING REQUEST.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> ANY QUESTIONS?

>> FALLON WOULD YOU PRONOUNCE YOUR LAST NAME ONE

MORE TIME. >> I WOULD HAVE NEVER GOT THATTEN. -- GOTTEN THAT.

>> ANY QUESTIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

APPRECIATE YOU COMING OUT. >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

>> ANYBODY ELSE? >> CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

I WANT TO MAKE ONE COMMENT ABOUT THIS.

WHEN I FIRST LOOKED AT THIS TO ME, DOING P.D.D.S FOR THINGS LIKE THIS ARE KIND OF OKAY BECAUSE KIND OF -- I DON'T PARTICULARLY THINK WE OUGHT TO BE DOING IT.

I DON'T KIND OF LIKE IT. BUT THE OBVIOUS OPTION FOR THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN TO GO TO NEIGHBORHOOD RETAIL BUT THAT OPENS UP TOO MUCH FOR WHAT'S GOING ON HERE AND NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE IS A BETTER USE OVERALL USE FOR THISO PUTTING A P.D. IN TO ALLOW ONE MORE EXCEPTION TO A NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE I THINK IS A GOOD WAY OF DOING IT I WOULD HAVE WANTED TO CHANGE THIS TO RETAIL BUT WHERE IT'S AT IF I WAS ON THE CORNER OR MAYBE ON THE OTHER CORN MAYBE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN APPROPRIATE.

BUT THIS ONE OPTION HERE I THINK NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE WITH THE P.D. TO ALLOW FOR THE RETAIL SALES IS APPROPRIATE FOR WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO HERE. THAT WOULD BE MY STATEMENT AT THIS POINT. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANYTHING ELSE? IF NOT WE CAN ENTERTAIN A

MOTION. >> I WILL MAKE A MOTION TO

APPROVE. >> I'LL SECOND.

>> MOTION AND A SECOND.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE CARRIES.

>> GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BUSINESS.

>> YEAH, GOOD LUCK. >>> CASE Z-2021-08 RECEIVE A REPORT AND DISCUSSION AND PUBLIC HEARING ON REQUEST FROM CIMARRON MEADOWS DEVELOPMENT.

>> GOOD AFTERNOON I'M JARED SMITH.

I WILL BE PRESENTING Z--2021-08 AS OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY REPRESENTED BY JACOB&MARTIN.

REQUEST IS TO REDISOWN TO A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT WITH A BASE ZONING OF RESIDENTIAL TOWNHOUSE.

SO THE REASON FOR THIS ACTUAL REQUEST IS TO ALLOW FOR TOWNHOUSE DEVELOPMENTS UNLIKE TRADITIONAL TOWN

[00:30:01]

HOMES WHICH REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF THREE CONTIGUOUS UNITS AND A MAXIMUM OF 12 THIS P.D. WILL BE ALLOWING -- AS FEW AS TWO CONTIGUOUS UNITS AND NO MORE THAN TWO UNITS. SO IT'S LESS DENSE AND LESS INTENSE THAN WHAT WE WOULD ORDINARILY EXPECT.

LOCATION IS THE SOUTH 320 FEET OF LOT 102 BLOCK A SECTION 2 OF THE PARKVIEW ADDITION.

CITY STAFF DID SEND NOTIFICATION LETTERS WITHIN A 200 FOOT RADIUS WE RECEIVED ONE RESPONSE IN FAVOR AND ZERO IN OPPOSITION.

HERE'S AN AERIAL LOCATION MAP SHOWING AN AERIAL VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY JUST EAST OF MAPLE STREET.

MANY OF YOU WILL RECALL IN OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR APPROVING A ZONE CHANGE FOR THIS PROPERTY TO MEDIUM DENSITY. THEY ARE NOT WANTING TO CONVERT THE SOUTHERN MOST 320 FEET TO THIS P.D.

ORDINANCE THAT WOULD ALLOW TOWNHOUSES.

CURRENT ZONING MAP SHOWING SUBJECT PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY WITHIN A MEDIUM DENSITY ZONING DISTRICT TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY A.O. ZONING SOUTH IS THE ABILENE STATE SUPPORTED LIVING CENTER.

EAST IS A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE.

WEST OF MAPLE STREET YOU HAVE -- ONE IS A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE OTHERS ARE VACANT AT THIS TIME.

GRAPHIC CONCEPT PLAN SHOWING A PRELIMINARY LAYOUT OF HOW THESE LOTS WILL BE CREATED AND THE DWELLINGS WILL STRADDLE THOSE LOT BOUNDARIES.

AGAIN, THERE WILL BE NO MORE THAN TWO CONTIGUOUS TOWNHOUSE SETS, IF YOU WOULD.

A FEW PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

HERE'S OUR NOTIFICATION MAP SHOWING THE EXTENT OF THAT 200 FOOTNOTE INDICATION AREA.

ONCE AGAIN ALL PROPERTIES WITHIN THIS AREA WERE NOTIFIED OF THIS ZONE CHANGE REQUEST.

WE DID RECEIVE ONE RESPONSE IN FAVOR INDICATED BY THE GREEN DOT IN ZERO IN OPPOSITION.

STAFF DID FIND THAT THIS REQUEST WAS CONSISTENT WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IN THE FUTURE LAND USE AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN MAP. IT WAS REVIEWED PURSUANT TO SECTION 1414 OF THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE WHICH IS THE CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL AND STAFF IS RECOMMENDING APPROVAL TO Y'ALL TODAY. HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING THIS REQUEST AT

THIS TIME. >> QUESTIONS FOR JARED?

>> WHY NOT JUST ZONE IT TOWNHOUSE?

>> WELL, I THINK ONE OF THE KEY PIECES TO THAT IS THEY IT.TED SOME FLEXIBILITY IN- THE ABILITY TO DO TOWNHOUSES IF YOU REZONED A TOWNHOUSE JUST OUTRIGHT THE PREVIOUS REQUEST TO DO DUPLEXES WOULD NO LONGER BE ALLOWED.

M.D. ZONING WOULD NO LONGER BE ALLOWED.

IN THE CURRENT DRAFT P.D. ORDINANCE WE HAVE ALLOWED FOR FLEXIBILITY. SO WITH THIS P.D. IF THEY CHOOSE PRESIDENT TO GO TOWNHOUSE WITH IT THEY -- CHOOSE NOT TO GO TOWNHOUSE WITH IT THEY CAN GO BACK TO TRADITIONAL PLANS AS DUPLEX. THEY DON'T WANT TO DO THREE THEY CAN DO AS LITTLE AS THREE -- TWO.

IT REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF THREE ATTACHED DWELLINGS SO THE TWO WOULD NOT WORK UNDER OUR CURRENT STANDARD.

>> THANKS. >> THANK YOU.

>> WE OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

>> AFTERNOON CLAYTON. AS JARED MENTIONED THE TENT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON THE PROPERTY AT LEAST IN THIS SOUTHERN HALF TO DO DUPLEXES.

WE HAVE WORKED FOR CITY STAFF ON PREVIOUS PROPERTIES WE WERE HERE BEFORE YOU GUYS DOING CARRIAGE HILLS IT'S JUST NOT A GOOD WAY TO SPLIT A DUPLEX DOWN THE MIDDLE TO ALLOW TO SELL EACH HALF OF THE PROPERTY.

SO WE'VE GONE THROUGH SEVERAL ITERATIONS THIS IS JUST THE NEWEST ONE THAT ALLOWS THE DEVELOPER TO DO THAT. BUT IF AS JARED MENTIONED IF HE DECIDES TO AT SOME POINT CHANGE HIS MIND AND KEEP THE DUPLEX BUT ONLY SELL THE STRUCTURE ON ONE LOT HE WOULD BE ALLOWED TO DO THAT IN THIS P.D.

I'M HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE ANY.

>> APPRECIATE IT. >> ANYONE ELSE? WE WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION OR A MOTION?

>> I'LL MOTION TO APPROVE. >> MOTION TO APPROVE.

>> WE HAVE A SECOND.

MOTION TO APPROVE CARRIES. >> I DON'T SEE A DIRECTOR REPORT SO THAT'S OKAY. I WOULD SAY IT'S GREAT TO SEE EVERYBODY. I THINK THIS IS FIRST TIME WE'VE HAD ALL SEVEN OF US HERE IN QUITE A WHILE.

IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU. WELCOME AGAIN.

GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE. >> I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION.

>> SURE. >> WE HAVE NOW ELECTED MR. ROSENBAUM AS OUR CHAIR HE WAS SERVING AS PRO TEM.

[00:35:03]

>> YES. >> DO WE NEED TO ELECT A PRO TEM TO REPLACE THAT POSITION OR NOT?

>> WE'LL LOOK AT THAT AND PUT IT ON AGENDA FOR ANOTHER

MEETING. >> OKAY.

>> BUT THE SECRETARY AND SERGEANT OF ARMS STAY THAT

WAY, CORRECT? >> I'LL HAVE TO LOOK.

>> WE NEED A SECRETARY TO SIGN THE PLATS.

THE SECRETARY AND THE CHAIR SIGN THE PLATS.

>> I'LL LOOK AT THAT. I'LL JUST LOOK AT ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT OFFICES. >> SO RIGHT NOW YOU WERE

SECRETARY, CORRECT? >> YES.

SECRETARY SERGEANT OF ARMS. >> YES.

SO IT'S JUST YOUR POSITION NOW VACATED DO WE NEED TO

FILL THAT. >> YEAH.

>> SO WE ARE STILL GOOD TO GO.

>> WITH THAT I
