[2. Z202010:]

FIRST I'M Z-2020-10. RECEIVE A REPORT AND HOLD A DISCUSSION PUBLIC HEARING ON A QUEST FROM SHARON RILEY AGENCY ENPROTEC/HIBBS AND TODD, INC, TO AMEND EXHAUSTING PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PD DISTRICT NUMBER 32 BY REMOVING FROM SUBPARAGRAPH F-1 AND 2 THE LANGUAGE STATING "NO OTHERS SIGNS THALL BE ALLOWED" FROM LOT 232 AND ALLOWING ALL SIGNAGE ALLOWED IN GENERAL RETAIL GR, LEGAL DESCRIPTION LOT 232 OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENT 32, NEW MANIA WEST ADDITION, ABILENE, TAYLOR COUNTY, TEXAS AND LOCATED AT 2050 ANTILLEY ROAD.

[00:05:05]

>> GOOD AFTERNOON MY NAME IS JARED SMITH. TODAY I'M PRESENTING Z-2020-10.

OWNER IS SHARON RILEY REPRESENTED BY HC SACKRY. SPECIFICALLY REGARDING FREE STANDING SIGN REGULATIONS. LOCATION IS 2050 ANTILLEY ROAD. WE SAW NOTIFIES TO SURROUND PROPERTY OWNER AND RECEIVED ONE RESPONSE IN FAVOR AND ONE IN OPPOSITION.

A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND ON THIS REQUEST. ALL WE ARE CHANGING HERE WE'RE TRYING TO AMOUNT THE PD TO REMOVE THE LANGUAGE OF NO OTHER SIGNS SHALL BE ALLOWED.

AND ADDING SUBPARAGRAPH WHICH IS GOING TO STATE SOMETHING TO EFFECT OF OFF SITE ADVERTISING SIGNS ORDINARILY ALLOWED WITHIN GENERAL RETAIL ZONING WILL BE PERMITTED SUBJECT TO ALL THE STANDARDS OUTLINED IN THE LDC WHICH GOVERN HEIGHT, AREA, LOCATION, SEPARATION AND THINGS OF THAT. HERE'S OUR LOCATION MAP, SHOWING AN AERIAL IMAGE OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY. WE'RE NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF HOSPITAL DRY ANTILLEY ROAD.

THIS IS LOCATION OF SHARON'S BARBECUE CURRENTLY. ZONING MAP SHOWING THAT THE CURRENT ZONING FOR SUBJECT PROPERTY IS PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT.

PD NUMBER 32. HERE'S A GRAPHI CONCEPT PLAN SHOWING THE PROBLEMS LOCATION OF WHERE THIS OFF SITE ADVERTISING SIGN WILL BE LOCATED. A FEW CONCEPTUAL PLANS WHICH SHOW WHAT IT MAY LOOK LIKE ONCE THE BILLBOARD IS CONSTRUCTED. FEW PHOTOGRAPHS OF OUR SUBJECT PROPERTY AS WELL AS NEIGHBORING PROPERTIES. ONCE AGAIN WE DID SEND NOTIFICATIONS TO ALL PROPERTY OWNERS WITHIN 200 FOOT RADIUS AND RECEIVED ONE IN FAVOR AND ONE IN OPPOSITION AS INDICATED HERE. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH COME PREPREHENCESY PLAN MAP. CONSISTENT WITH LAND USE OF ZONING CHARACTER AND ITS REVIEWED BY THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE THEREFORE STAFF DOES RECOMMEND APPROVAL.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AT THIS TIME. >> ON THE ZONING MAP, THERE'S A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AND YOU JUST GOT THE ONE PROMPT CROSS HATCHED.

IS THAT THE ONLY THING THAT'S IN THE PUD. ARE THERE MULTIPLE PUD'S AROUND

IT? >> NO. THAT IS -- THAT ENTIRE BLOCK IS ENCOMPASSED PD-32 AS WELL AS THE LOTS WHICH FRONT HOSPITAL DERIVE AND HOSPITAL PLACE.

THE LOT THAT'S CROSS HATCHED IS THE LOT THAT BASICALLY SUBMITTED FOR TO HAVE A OFF SITE ADVERTISING SIGN CONSTRUCTED ON THAT PARTICULAR LOT. WE WILL BE AMENDING THE PD FOR THE ENTIRE PD NOT JUST TO GRANT AN EXCEPTION FOR THIS SINGLE LOT.

>> OKAY. THERE'S MULTIPLE PROPERTY OWNERS WITHIN THAT PD.

>> CORRECT. >> DON'T YOU NEED TO GET APPROVAL FROM ALL THE PROPERTY

OWNERS IN THE PD TO CHANGE THE PD? >> IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT WE

NEED APPROVAL FROM YOU AND CITY COUNCIL TO AMEND THE PD. >> OKAY.

WHAT WE DO IN THIS PD WILL EFFECT ALL THE OTHER PROPERTY OWNERS.

>> THAT WOULD BE CORRECT. THE FIRST ONE OUT TO GET THIS SIGN WILL BE THE ONE THAT WILL

GET IT BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE CRITERIA. >> THAT'S ALSO CORRECT.

>> THANKS. >> ANY ORQUESTIONS? >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, SIR. >> THANK YOU. I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

ANYONE CARRYING TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM PLEASE COME FORWARD. THANK YOU.

I'M HC ZACHARY HERE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS ZONING CHANGE. WE WOULD ACTUALLY OUR COMPANY WOULD ACTUALLY CONSTRUCT AND OWN THE BILLBOARD THAT WOULD BE PUT THERE ON SHARON RILEY'SLAND.

I SAW THESE THINGS UP HERE. YOU SAW THEM IT HAD ONE OPPOSED AND ONE IN FAVOR.

AND I SURVEYED THE PEOPLE IN THAT AREA WHEN THIS CAME UP AND HAD EIGHT THAT WERE GOING TO SEND IN THEIR FAVORABLE APPROVALS. SO I DIDN'T WORK OUT QUITE THAT WAY. REMIND -- MY DADS COUNTY COMMISSIONER OF NORTH TEXAS.

YOU NEED TO ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND THAT NOT EVERYONE WHO SAID THEY WILL VOTE FOR YOU ACTUALLY DO IT. SO OUR COMPANY HAS BEEN IN ABILENE FOR 50 YEARS.

PROVIDE MARKETING SERVICES TO REGIONAL NATIONAL CLIENTS OVER THE LAST TEN TO 15 YEARS.

[00:10:05]

LIKE MOST OF THE ADVERTISING THINGS WE'VE SHIFTED MORE TO DIGITALLY-BASED WORK.

OUR CLIENTS RANGE FROM AMERICA'S LARGEST EXPORTER WHICH IS BOEING TO A ONE EMPLOYEE TREE TRIMMER HERE IN ABILENE. WE HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF THINGS. ERECTING A DIGITAL BILLBOARD WOULD BE JUST IN OUR VIEW AN EXTENSION OF THE DIGITAL SERVICES THAT WE TEND TO BE MOVING TOWARD AND OFFER. WE THINK THAT AREA IS COMMERCIAL AREA AS WE ALL KNOW SHOWING CENTER AND WE THINK THAT WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE THE DENSITY AND AS GROW FOR SEVERAL REASON.

TWO OR THREE REAL QUICKLY. THE PRESUMMING THAT MERGER OF MEDICAL CENTER AND ABILENE REGIONAL. I'M NOT SPEAKING WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THAT, BUT THAT'S WHAT IS IN THE NEWS. THEY WILL MERGE. WELL, THOSE THINGS TEND TO BE A MAGNET FOR OFFICES AND SO FORTH THAT ARE COMING INTO THE AREA. THE OTHER THING COUNTY RECORDS INDICATE THAT 30,000 PEOPLE NOW LIVE IN THE SOUTH COUNTY BUT IED SIDE THE CITY LIMITS.

30,000. THAT'S TWO YEARS OLD. PROBABLY UP FROM THAT.

30,000 PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE THE FIRST COMMERCIAL AREA THEY ENTER WHEN THEY COME INTO ABILENE IS THIS AREA. OKAY. THEY NEED SOME DIRECTION ON THINGS. THINGS LIKE THAT. AND OF COURSE, A BILLBOARD WOULD CONTAIN SOME OF THOSE KINDS OF THINGS. ADDITIONALLY, THERE'S 10,000 PEOPLE THAT LIVE WITHIN INSIDE THAT CITY LIMITS. THAT WILL WITHIN 7-MINUTE DRIVE.

WE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE HERE. A LOT OF PEOPLE MOVING AROUND AND ALL THAT.

VERY LIKELY TO GROW AS COMMERCIAL CENTER COMMERCIAL CENTERS NEED SIGNAGE INCLUDING THE BILLBOARDS. ONE OTHER THING. WE'VE BEEN OUT THERE AND LOOKED AROUND IT'S A UNIT THE STREETS ARE UNIQUELY DESIGNED IN THAT'S IT'S VERY EASY FOR A BUSINESS TO BE HIDDEN FROM ANY PUBLIC TRAFFIC GOING BY. AND SO I DON'T WANT TO APPEAR TO HAVE TOO MUCH HERE. THIS SIGNAGE ON THAT WOULD HELP SOME OF THOSE BUSINESSES INCREASE THEIR VISIBILITY TO THE PASSING TRAFFIC. LIKE I SAY I DON'T WANT TO WAVE THAT FLAG TOO HIGH. BECAUSE I'M IN THIS TO TRY TO MAKE PROPHET.

LET ME BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT. TO HELP THOSE OTHER BUSINESSES OUT THERE.

THE LAST THING I WOULD SAY WITH CITY REGULATION I BELIEVE HAS BEEN MENTIONED THERE CAN BE TWO BILLBOARDS BETWEEN MEMORIAL DRIVE. LAMAR, A NATIONAL COMPANY IS ALREADY BEEN GIVEN THE -- ONE OF THOSE LOCATIONS. COMPANY AN ABILENE COMPANY HAVE

THE OTHER. I APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION. >> IT WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER

ANY QUESTIONS IF THERE ARE ANY. >> ANY QUESTIONS? >> THANK YOU, SIR.

>> ANYONE ELSE CARE TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM, PLEASE COME FORWARD. >> THANK TODD CEDAR.

JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THIS ROAD MAJOR ARTERIAL. DON'T GET HUNG UP ON THE PD.

I DID THIS 80S. THE PLANNING AND ZONING DIRECTOR EVERYTHING HAD TO BE PD.

WE WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU TO DO NORMAL ZONES. THAT'S THE ONLY REASON THAT'S PD BECAUSE OF HIS WISHES. OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE JUST NORMAL ZONES LIKE ACROSS THE

STREET. DON'T GET HUNG UP ON THAT. >> SINCE YOU BROUGHT THAT UP.

IF YOU DON'T MIND ME ASKING. PD LOOKS LIKE IT'S BROKEN UP BY LOTS; RIGHT?

>> YES. >> ARE WE ASKING TO SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS THE CHANGE JUST THAT LOT

OR ASKING -- >> THE LOCATION OF THOSE BILLBOARDS WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE BILLBOARD SPACING REQUIREMENT. ONCE ONE IS THERE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER. THAT'S THE ONLY ONE YOU WILL GET IN THAT AREA.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >> THANK YOU, SIR. >> ANYONE ELSE CARE TO SPEAK TO

THIS ITEM? >> YES, SIR. >> I'M CLIFFORD BRYANT.

I'M ONE OF THE LAND OWNERS THERE AND MY OFFICE IS 2074 ANTILLEY ROAD RIGHT NEXT TO SHARON'S.

[00:15:05]

THIS WILL EFFECT MY BUSINESS MORE THAN ANYONES. AND IT'S WE OPPOSE IT.

IT'S RIGHT IN THE WAY OF OUR SIGNAGE. AND IT'S A HUGE BILLBOARD.

IT'S SOMETHING I THINK APPROPRIATE WE'RE ALL FOR DIGITAL BILLBOARDS.

WITHIN YOU KNOW THE APPROPRIATE SIGNAGE FOR THIS AREA. WE HAVE A PLANNED SIGN FOR OUR CORNER AND THIS WILL INTERFERE DIRECTLY WITH US. ALONG WITH OTHER CONSIDER RA CONSIDERATION, TRAFFIC LOCALLY IS CONGESTED ENOUGH. WE HAVE ACCIDENTS PRETTY REGULARLY. WE WOULD RATHER SEE A STOPLIGHT GO OUT THERE AT MEMORIAL AND SOMETHING THAT'S SAFE. THE CURRENT SIGNAGE. I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE ACTUAL NUMBERS ARE. WHAT THE HEIGHT IS. AND WHAT THE SQUARE FOOTAGE FOR

THE SIGNAGE. DOES ANYBODY KNOW THAT? >> I CAN GIVE YOU SIGN

REGULATIONS. >> IS IT 150? PROPOSED LOCATION MEETS ALL HE -

SEPARATION SET BACKS BUT KIT BE MAXIMUM AREA OF 378 SQUARE FEET. >> THAT'S THE NEW PROPOSAL?

>> THAT'S THE REGULATION FOR THE GENERAL RETAIL SIGN. >> WHAT IS THERE NOW?

>> DO YOU KNOW -- BECAUSE WE WERE LOOKING PUTTING A NEW SIGN UP ON OUR PROPERTY.

AND WE HAD SOME RESTRICTIONS. WE WERE TOLD IT CAN'T BE BIGGER THAN THIS.

OR THIS. OKAY THAT'S WHAT WE WILL DO. HOWEVER, WE DIDN'T REALIZE THAT WE COULD JUST LET'S JUST ASK FOR EVERYBODY TO RECHANGE THE ZONING AND THIS SEEMS LIKE JURY MANNEDERING TO ME. WE HAVE THIS STRIP HERE AND WE WILL PUT THIS IN FRONT OF YOUR BUILDING. THOSE ARE SOME OF THE REASONS THAT WE OPPOSE IT.

CURRENTLY THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT SAID THAT NO MORE THAN 150 SQUARE FEET AND HEIGHT OF NO MORE THAN 30 FEET. SO THE REQUEST BEFORE THE COMMISSION TODAY IS TO AMEND THE PD AS YOU SPOKE ABOUT FOR PREVIOUSLY INQUIRING ABILITY -- ABOUT A SIGN PERMIT.

HUGE SIGN LIKE THAT WE JUST OPPOSE. MY NEIGHBORHOOD IS 100 YARDS FROM THIS AREA. IT'S RIGHT THERE. THIS IS NOT LIKE IT'S A COMMERCIAL AREA. IT'S NOT THE INTERSTATE. AND NOT ONLY CAN YOU COMPARE TO THAT SIGN IT'S OVER 83 AND 84. THAT'S ON INTERSTATE. IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S ANTILLEY ROAD. IT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT KIND OF THING.

>> CAN WE GO BACK, STAFF TO NOTIFICATION ZONE ON THE MAP. I JUST WANT TO ASK A REAL QUICK.

SIR, IS THIS 2774. ARE YOU ONE THAT OPPOSED? >> YES.

>> JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE. . >> HAVEN'T TALK TO LOCAL NEIGHBORS OR ANYTHING. BUT I DON'T THINK THEY ARE GOING TO GET IN SIGNAGE UNLESS THEY PAY OUT-OF-POCKET TO TRY TO GET SOME SIGNAGE. IF IT SOMETHING THEY WERE PERMANENT SIGN THAT POINTS DOWN THE ROAD TO SAY THESE OTHER BUSINESSES ARE PRESENT.

WE WOULDN'T OPPOSE THAT. JUST SOMETHING THAT WILL BE HERE TO MAKE MONEY FOR THIS ONE LOT.

WE OPPOSE. >> OKAY. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> I HAVE A QUESTION. WHAT TYPE OF BUSINESS DO YOU HAVE?

>> ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY. IT'S OUR MEDICAL PRACTICE OFFICE THAT'S RIGHT THERE.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, SIR. YOU BET.

THANK YOU. ANYONE ELSE CARE TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM? PLEASE COME FORWARD. JUST TO KIND OF CLARIFY A FEW THINGS.

THE BASE ZONING IN THIS PD IS CURRENTLY GENERAL RETAIL. IT NORMALLY ALLOWS ADVERTISING SIGN UP TO 35 FEET HEIGHT, 375 SQUARE FEET. SOMETHING THEY WANT TO NOTE FOR YOU ALL. JUST SOUTH OF ANTILLEY ROAD IS A PD WHICH HAS NO PROHIBITIONS AGAINST SIGNS. AND HAS GENERA GENERALLY -- GENERAL RETAIL ZONING THAT WOULD ALLOW OFF SITE SIGN JUST SOUTH OF ANTILLEY ROAD.

JUST KIND OF FOOD FOR THOUGHT ON THAT. >> THANK YOU.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? ANYONE CARE TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM SEEING NO ONE I WILL CLOSE

THE PUBLIC HEARING. DISCUSSION FROM THE COMMISSION? >> I BRIGHT UP THE PD.

PD WAS WRITTEN IN '86 WHO KNEW HOW THING WOULD DEVELOP BACK THEN.

JERRY,COULD YOU WOULD YOU MIND -- HOPE YOU READ THAT STATEMENT THAT YOU MADE ABOUT GENERAL RETAIL. WHEN YOU WERE GOING THROUGH YOUR PRESENTATION.

>> YES. WHAT IS YOUR CONCERN? >> I WANT YOU TO READ THAT.

[00:20:02]

PUT THAT STATEMENT YOU MADE ABOUT SIGNAGE IN GENERAL RETAIL. >> THAT IT'S ORNARILY PERMITTED WITHIN GENERAL RETAILING ZONES SHALL BE PERMITTED SUBJECT TO ALL THE STANDARD OUTLINED IN THE

LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE. IS THAT THE STATEMENT? >> YES.

THAT'S THE STATEMENT. >> THAT WILL BE THE AMENDMENT. THE AMENDMENT TO THIS PD THAT WILL BE THE VERBIAGE THERE. THEY WOULD BE PERMITTED UP TO 35 FEET IN HEIGHT UNLESS YOU GUY ADD ANY KIND OF CAP TO THAT AND THEY COULD BE LARGE AS 375 SQUARE FEET.

NOW JUST SO YOU ARE AWARE, GENERAL SPACE RETAIL ZONING DOES ALLOW SIGNS.

PD MORE RESTRICT ACTIVE -- TO BE AS LARGE AS 300 SQUARE FEET AN AREA AND AS TALL AT 50 FEET IN HEIGHT. THIS P DOES LIMIT SIGNS TO 150 FEET.

>> THAT'S ON SITE. >> THAT'S ON SITE. >> CORRECT.

>> AGAIN, WE CAN WORD THE PD TO RESTRICT THE SIZE FOR OFF SITE ADVERTISING IF YOU SO CHOOSE.

BUT AS ITS WRITTEN TODAY, THEY WOULD BE PERMITTED AS TALL AS 35 FEET AND AS LARGE AS 375 SQUARE

FEET. THANK YOU. >> ANY OTHER QUESTION OR

DISCUSSION? >> I GUESS I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING SIR.

>> I WILL OPEN -- IF THE COMMISSION WANT ME TO. >> SURE.

>> I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. COME ON, SIR.

>> WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT ALL THAT. I GUESS MY QUESTION IF IT WERE TO BE A APPROVED THEN EVERYONE COULD HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PUT UP LARGE SIGN THEN HOW DO YOU

DECIDE WHO WILL GET TO DO THAT. THE FIRST ONE TO PUT ONE UP -- >> THERE'S A DISTANCE RESTRICTION ON THAT SIGN. THERE CAN ONLY BE SO MANY FEET APART.

IT WILL ONLY ALLOW ONE SIGN LIKE THAT. >> HOW IS THAT DECIDED? MY QUESTION IS YOU CAN'T JUST -- WHOEVER CAN DO THE FASTEST OR THERE'S AN APPROVAL PROCESS? IF YOU SAID YOU WILL APPROVE THIS THEN IT AUTOMATICALLY SAYS THAT THIS PROPERTY GETS AND IT'S OVER. OR WOULD IT BE THERE'S NOW A

DISCUSSION ABOUT WHO GETS TO PUT UP THE SIGN WHERE? >> STAFF, CAN YOU GET AN ANSWER

FOR THAT. >> IT WILL BE ON FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.

>> JUST LIKE ANY OTHER GENERAL RETAIL IN THE AREA. YOU WOULD HAVE TO GET APPROVAL,

THOUGH. >> YOU HAVE TO GET APPROVAL FROM THE CITY.

>> AND THE PERMITTING PROCESS. >> HAS THAT BEEN DONE FOR THIS? >> -- GIVE ME YOUR NAME AGAIN.

CLIFFORD D. FRANK. >> OKAY. THE WAY THIS WILL GO.

WE WILL RULE ON IT ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. THEN I WILL GO TO CITY COUNCIL.

THERE WILL BE TWO OPPORTUNITIES AT CITY COUNCIL. FRED READ IN THE OPENING.

WE ONLY RECOMMEND CASES OF ZONING. WE WILL RECOMMEND -- WE WILL MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL. COUNCIL WILL HEAR IT TWICE THEN COUNCIL WILL VOTE UP OR DOWN. THAT'S WHEN IT'S LOCKED IN STONE.

AFTER THE SECOND READING IN COUNCIL. THEY WILL LOCK IT DOWN.

>> THEY WILL GO WITH OUR RECOMMEND -- WE WILL MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.

>> YOU HAVE TWO OPPORTUNITIES AT COUNCIL. >> GREAT.

THANK YOU. APPRECIATE THAT. >> THANK YOU, SIR.

>> ANYONE ELSE CARE TO SPEAK TO THIS? >> I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING. DISCUSSION FROM THE COMMISSION OR ANY POSSIBLE MOTION?
