OKAY.

IT, YEAH, I BELIEVE IT COULD GROW TO THAT IF IT ALLOWED, ALLOWED TO GROW TO THAT.

I DON'T, WELL, I DON'T REMEMBER ANY SPECIFICATIONS FOR IT TO GROW TO THAT HEIGHT.

I I TRUST YOUR ANSWER BETTER THAN GOOGLE.

SO, UH, IN YOUR OPINION BETWEEN THOSE SHRUBS AND THE TREES IS THEIR ADEQUATE BUFFERING, UH, FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD ACROSS THE STREET? I BELIEVE THERE IS ADEQUATE BUFFERING THERE WITH THE TREES AND THE SHRUBS COMBINED.

UH, SO I THINK THAT'S A PRETTY EASY CHOICE.

AND I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT BEING THERE TODAY.

I'M GONNA DO MY BEST TO, TO HANDLE THIS REMOTELY.

IF I CAN, UH, SHARE MY SCREEN, UH, I'D APPRECIATE IT.

LET'S SEE.

UH, OKAY, HOLD ON JUST A SECOND.

IT'S NOT LETTING ME SHARE MY SCREEN.

WHY YOU DO THAT? CAN YOU PLEASE MR. KING MAKE, UH, COMMISSIONER VICE CHAIR? NOT A PANELIST.

I THINK HE IS A PANELIST.

I'M NOT SURE IF HE'S ON THE RIGHT WAY.

HE'S ON THERE.

VICE CHAIR RUBEN.

THANK YOU.

I'M, I'M VERY EMBARRASSED.

I APOLOGIZE.

YOU WANNA EMAIL THE PRESENTATION, MR. BALDWIN? YEAH, IT'S COMING.

I'M SORRY.

IT'S NO WORRIES.

OKAY.

CAN YOU SEE THAT? NOW WE CAN.

THANK YOU.

HOW QUICKLY I FORGET.

SO, UM, GOOD AFTERNOON.

THIS IS A, A REQUEST TO BASICALLY, UH, I THINK MS. MUNOZ DID A GREAT JOB OF EXPLAINING THAT WE'RE JUST TRYING TO GET THE ABILITY TO SEEK RELIEF TO A SIDEWALK REQUIREMENT ALONG WALNUT HILL, UH, BOULEVARD FOR, UM, A PROJECT THAT'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION NOW, THE PD CURRENTLY REQUIRES US TO HAVE A FIVE FOOT PLANNING STRIP AND THEN AN EIGHT FOOT SIDEWALK.

AND THERE'S SOME CONDITIONS THAT MAKE THAT VERY DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE TO DO.

UM, THE SITE IS UP IN LAKE HIGHLANDS TOWN CENTER.

THIS IS THE SITE HERE IN GREEN.

IT WAS ALL PART OF SUB-DISTRICT B OF, OR SUB AREA B OF THE, OF LAKE HIGHLANDS TOWN CENTER LINE DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT.

YOU'LL SEE WHERE THE AREA SHADED HERE IN GREEN RIGHT NEXT TO THE DART STATION IN WALNUT HILL LANE.

THIS EXHIBIT HERE SHOWS WHERE THE SIDEWALK IS THE EXISTING FIVE FOOT SIDEWALK, AND IT SHOWS THE TOPOGRAPHY LEADING DIRECTLY FROM THE EXISTING SIDEWALK DOWN TO THE SITE.

AS YOU CAN SEE, IT'S ABOUT A, A 20 FOOT DROP OR, UH, 25 FOOT DROP IN SOME LOCATIONS TO, TO THE SITE.

IT'S, IT'S PRETTY, PRETTY STEEP AND THERE ARE A LOT OF TREES BETWEEN US AND THE SIDEWALK.

THIS IS LOOKING, UH, EAST ON WALNUT HILL AND OUR, OUR SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTIONS ON OUR LEFT.

THIS, THIS EXHIBIT KIND OF PHOTO SHOWS YOU A GREATER EXTENT OF THE, THE DROP OFF.

AND THIS IS LOOKING, UH, LOOKING WEST.

AND YOU CAN SEE THIS IS THE BRIDGE OVER THE DART TRACKS.

AND THIS SHOWS THE EXISTING SIDEWALK TODAY.

AND IF WE EXTENDED MADE THIS A PLANTING AREA AND THEN EXTENDED IT OUT ANOTHER EIGHT FEET, WE'D BE CANTILEVERING OVER, UH, A STEEP DROP AND HAVE TO REMOVE TREES TO DO IT.

ONE THING I WANNA POINT OUT IS THAT THERE IS, UH, AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE FROM THE DART STATION THROUGH THE, THE PROPERTY, UH, AND CONNECTING TO THE E EXTENSION OF THE SANTA FE, NOT THE SANTA FE TRAIL, THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC TRAIL

[00:15:01]

EXTENSION THAT LEADS INTO THE LAKE HIGHLAND TOWN CENTER.

SO THERE IS A WAY FOR PEOPLE TO GET FROM THE DART STATION TO THE SANTA FE TRAIL OR SOUTHERN PACIFIC TRAIL WITHOUT GOING ALONG WALNUT HILL.

SO IT'S A NICE WIDE SIDEWALK.

AND THERE'S ALSO A, UM, A TRANSIT STATION THERE, UH, DART AND, UH, RAIL AND BUS.

SO ALL WE'RE ASKING FOR IS A, THE ABILITY FOR THE, THE DIRECTOR, IN THIS CASE, THE DIRECTOR OF ENGINEERING, TO BE ABLE TO EVALUATE AND IF THEY SEE MERIT IN IT, TO NOT REQUIRE US TO BUILD THAT SIDEWALK FIVE FEET OFF THE CURB.

I'M HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE.

I HOPE YOU CAN SUPPORT THIS REQUEST.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MR. BALDWIN.

COMMISSIONERS QUESTIONS FOR MR. BALDWIN? COMMISSIONER YOUNG? UH, YES, MR. BALDWIN.

IT IS NEITHER THE SANTA FE TRAIL NOR THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC TRAIL, BUT RATHER THE WHITE ROCK CREEK TRAIL.

I APOLOGIZE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

BUT IT'S A NEW EXTENSION.

YES.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? COMMISSIONERS, PLEASE.

COMMISSIONER HERBERT.

MR. BALDWIN, JUST THE, THE SITE AS YOU, YOU STATED IS, IS IT WOULD BE DANGEROUS TO EXTEND IT, UM, OR ARE THE OWNERS GOING TO DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT THAT SITE AT ALL OR ARE THEY JUST ASKING TO LEAVE IT AS IS? WE'LL DO IT.

THE CITY ASKS US TO DO AS WE GO THROUGH THE ENGINEERING APPROVAL, THE CITY MAY ASK US TO PUT A RAILING ON THE INSIDE OF THE SIDEWALK TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM TUMBLING DOWN THE HILL, BUT, UH, WE WILL DO WHATEVER THE CITY ASKED US TO DO.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

GOOD QUESTION, MR. CHAIR, PLEASE.

IS THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER ANDERSON? YES, PLEASE.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

UM, MR. BALDWIN, WHAT CONDITION IS THE PATHWAY THAT LOOKED THAT, THAT YOU DESCRIBED IN YOUR, UH, ILLUSTRATION THAT LINKS THE TRAIN TO THE PARCEL? I'M SORRY, COMMISSIONER ANDERSON, I DIDN'T CATCH ALL OF THAT.

WHAT COULD, WHAT IS THE CONDITION OF THAT PATHWAY THAT YOU DESCRIBED IN YOUR ILLUSTRATION? IS IT ADEQUATE? IT'S A, IT'S BRAND NEW, UH, AND IT'S, UH, IMPROVED SURFACE ON BOTH SIDES OF, OF WHISTLE STOP.

THAT GOES ALL THE WAY FROM THE DART STATION TO THE, THE TRAIL HEAD.

SO YOU CAN GO ON THE NORTH OR THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE STREET AND CONNECT TO THE TRAIL.

THANK YOU, BALDWIN.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONERS FOR THE APPLICANT? QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? OKAY.

STAND DOWN.

COMMISSIONER HARBERT, DO YOU HAVE A MOTION, SIR? UH, I MOVED TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND APPROVE THE ZONING CHANGES RECOMMENDED BY STAFF.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

COMMISSIONER HARVARD.

COMMISSIONER WHEELER FOR YOUR SECOND.

DOES THAT NEED TO BE SUBJECT TO A REVISED CONCEPTUAL PLAN, WHICH CHANGES AS BRIEFED MOTION? YES.

YES.

DRA WRAPPED IN HERE.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? WE DO SEE YOU, SIR, CAN YOU PLEASE BEGIN YOUR COMMENTS WITH YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

ZACH THOMPSON, 36 0 8 SOUTH FITSU, UH, DALLAS, TEXAS 75 210.

MY CONCERN IS THE SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK AREA PLAN THAT'S UNDER DEVELOPMENT AND THE PROPOSED PD 5 95 REZONING.

UH, I WOULD ASK THAT THE APPLICANT HOLD OFF AND WORK WITH US, THOSE WHO ARE PROPERTY OWNERS IN SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK TO HAVE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AS IT RELATES TO WORKING WITH A TOTAL SOUTH DALLAS.

NOT A HODGEPODGE TYPE OF PLANNING.

UH, MY CONCERN IS, IS AND FINALLY WOULD BE THAT WE'RE CREATING A SEPARATE BUT UNEQUAL PLAN PROCESS WHEN WE, WHEN WE NAVIGATE AROUND THE PROPOSED 5 95, UH, REZONING AND THE SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK AREA PLAN.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

DOES THE APPLICANT WANT TO TAKE OVER REBUTTAL TIME? NO.

COMMISSIONERS.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? QUESTIONS FOR MR. THOMPSON? YES.

COMMISSIONER STANDARD PLEASE.

YES.

MR. THOMPSON, HOW DO YOU SEE THAT WHAT THEY'RE PROPOSING NOW COULD NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE FUTURE OF YOUR, UH, PD WORK OR THE AREA PLAN WORK? WELL THAT, THAT ANALYZE THE ISSUE IS THAT WE'VE NOT SEEN THEM AT THE TABLE IN OUR DISCUSSION.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING FOR A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN RIGHT NOW UNDER P UNDER PROPOSED PD 5 95.

THERE'S A LOT OF VARIABLES THAT BASICALLY HISTORICALLY WAS PUT THERE BECAUSE OF POLITICAL REASONS 20 OR 30 YEARS AGO.

NOW, HERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO OPEN UP SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK FOR THE FIRST TIME TO REALLY LOOK AT NEW DEVELOPMENT.

SO WHY SEPARATE UNDER THIS PLAN TO WORK ON THEIR PROPOSED PLAN AND NOT LOOK AT THE TOTAL SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK? THAT'S ALL, ALL WE'RE ASKING.

I DON'T SEE WHERE THEIR PLAN IS GOING TO BENEFIT SECOND AVENUE.

I DON'T SEE WHERE THEIR PLAN IS GOING TO BENEFIT ANY BUSINESS OWNERS THAT ARE AROUND THAT AREA.

SO IF YOU ASKING ME SPECIFICALLY, WE DON'T KNOW BECAUSE WE'VE NOT SEEN 'EM AT ANY OF OUR MEETINGS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU MR. THOMPSON.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER WHEELER.

UM, MR. THOMPSON, HAVE YOU BEEN AT ANY OF THE THREE COMMUNITY MEETINGS THAT WERE HELD IN SOUTH DALLAS OVER THE LAST 90 DAYS? AND ALSO HAVE YOU ARE, ARE YOU A PART OF THE SOUTH DALLAS AREA PLAN, TASK FORCE?

[00:25:01]

NOT PART OF THE TASK FORCE, BUT I AM A PART OF THOSE WHO LANDOWNERS WHO HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH, UH, HANK LAWSON AND WE MEET ONCE A MONTH, UH, FOR THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS.

YES.

YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF THE THREE MEETINGS THAT HAVE BEEN HELD AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN AT? OH, YEAH.

YEAH, I'M AWARE.

I'M AWARE.

YEAH.

I'M MR. YEAH, I'M AWARE OF THOSE MEETINGS, YES.

AND, AND MR. LAWSON HAS ALSO BEEN, MS. LAWSON IS ALSO ON THE AREA PLAN, TASK FORCE AND HAS MET WITH THEM AT THOSE MEETINGS OR AWARE OF THAT? YES, I AM.

SO THEY HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH THE COMMUNITY, YOU JUST HAVEN'T BEEN AT THE MEETINGS, AM I CORRECT? NOT THOSE THREE MEETINGS SPECIFICALLY, BUT MY CONCERN IS NOT SO MUCH THOSE MEETINGS, BUT THE MEETINGS THAT WE'VE HAD WITH HANK LAWSON MONTHLY THAT DISCUSS THE TOTAL SOUTH DALLAS FOR OUR PARK AREA PLAN, AS WELL AS PD 5 95 REZONING.

ARE YOU AWARE THAT STAFF RECOMMENDATION AND ALSO COMMISSIONER'S RE RECOMMENDATIONS WERE BASED OFF OF THE AREA PLAN, THE TASK FORCE, UM, THE SOUTH DALLAS FOR PARK TASK FORCE AREA PLAN MEETINGS ALSO WITH THE CURRENT PD AND THE FUTURE CHANGES AND ALSO AS WELL AS THE HATCHER STATION PLAN THAT THESE, THAT THIS RECOMMENDATION WAS BASED OFF OF THAT, THOSE ACTUAL MEETINGS.

I'LL DEFER TO YOU AS, AS THE COMMISSIONER FOR DISTRICT SEVEN, WHATEVER YOUR DECISION IS.

UH, I JUST WANTED TO BRING MY PERSONAL POINTS AS A LANDOWNER IN THAT AREA THAT I STILL SAY WE SHOULD WAIT, UH, AND LOOK AT PD 5 95 REZONING AND BRING THIS BACK.

BUT I TRUST YOUR, UH, POSITION AND I'LL SUPPORT IT.

THE APPLICANT HAS ASKED IN THIS, IN THIS ACTUAL CASE TO THIS CASE TO BE HELD OVER TO MARCH 18TH, SO THEY CAN DO FURTHER MEETINGS.

SIR, I'M GOING TO REQUEST THAT WE, UH, KEEP THIS, UH, PUBLIC HEARING OPEN AND, AND HOLD ON, HOLD THE MATTER ADVISEMENT TO HOLD THE MATTER.

18TH MAR, UH, MAY 18TH.

OKAY, COMMISSIONERS? WE DO THANK YOU.

WE DO HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER BLAIR TO KEEP THE PUBLIC HEARING OPEN.

HOLD THE MATTER UNDER ADVISEMENT UNTIL MAY 18TH.

ANY DISCUSSION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? SAY IT FOR THE QUESTION.

YES, PLEASE.

COMMISSIONER ANDERSON, I THOUGHT I SAW YOUR HAND, SIR, PLEASE, YES.

I'M TRYING TO DETERMINE, UM, IF THE, WHAT, WHAT THE BOUNDARIES WERE FOR THE AREA PLANS AND FOR THE AREAS THAT WERE STUDIED IN THIS, IN THIS PLAN.

I'M TRYING TO SEE IF MR. THOMPSON'S, UM, COMMENTS ARE ABOUT, UM, MS. UH, IT'S GONNA BE, LET'S LET, UH, STAFF TAKE THAT.

YEAH.

SORRY, WHAT WAS THE QUESTION AGAIN? COMMISSION.

ANDERS, CAN YOU REPHRASE OR RESTATE YOUR QUESTION? THE, THE VOLUME'S A LITTLE BIT LOW IN HERE.

COULD YOU GUYS DESCRIBE THE BOUNDARY AREA OF THE, THE STUDY AND THE AREA PLANS THAT ARE REFERENCED BEFORE THIS MOTION? UM, I THINK THE, THERE ARE TWO AREA PLANS THAT APPLY TO THIS PROPERTY.

UM, MS. MUNOS MIGHT BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT A LITTLE MORE CLEARLY, BUT ONE OF THEM IS THE HATCHER STATION AREA PLAN, UM, THAT IS CENTERED AROUND, UH, THE HATCHER STATION, UH, THE HATCHER DART RAIL STATION.

UM, IT'S SORT OF A T O D FOCUSED AREA PLAN.

UM, THE OTHER ONE AS, AS THE RESIDENT MENTIONED, IS THE SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK, UH, AREA PLAN.

UM, THOSE BOTH APPLY TODAY.

UM, I DO NOT WORK IN THE LONG-RANGE PLANNING SECTION OF THIS DEPARTMENT.

UM, BUT AS I UNDERSTAND, THE SOUTH DALLAS FAIR PARK AREA PLAN IS CURRENTLY, UM, UNDER REVIEW, UM, TO POSSIBLY BE UPDATED IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

UM, I'M NOT SURE THE STATUS OF THAT BECAUSE AGAIN, THAT'S NOT, THAT'S NOT MY LANE.

UM, BUT IT IS, UH, BEING REVIEWED CURRENTLY.

UM, I'M JUST TRYING TO DETERMINE WHAT EXTENT OF PD 5 95 WAS NOTIFIED AND, AND HAD THE CHANCE TO BE INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS.

AND I GUESS THAT DOESN'T HAVE ANY ANSWER RIGHT NOW.

THOSE ARE JUST, YOU KNOW, MY CONCERNS AT ALL.

I CAN ANSWER THAT.

UH, PROCEDURALLY, UM, SO THIS IS, UM, A REQUEST FOR A PD.

I THINK THAT'S HOW WE'VE, IT'S A FORM DISTRICT.

GIVE ME ONE SECOND.

IT, IT'S A REQUEST FOR GENERAL ZONE CHANGE WITHIN THIS PD, WHICH PERMITS IT.

SO THEN IT'S BASED ON THE ACREAGE FOR NOTIFICATION.

IT'S NOT THE GENERAL OR STANDARD 500 FEET, UM, SURROUNDING THE SITE.

IT WAS A 400 FOOT RADIUS FOR THIS REQUEST.

SO CLOSE.

THANK YOU, MR. THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER WHEELER.

YOU HAVE SOME CONTEXT.

SO BEING, BECAUSE THIS CASE WAS ONE OF THOSE CASES THAT WAS,

[00:30:01]

UH, KIND OF A HIGH PRIORITY, I MEAN HIGH PROFILE IN SOUTH DALLAS, WE PERFORMED THREE, UM, OH, ONCE A MONTH.

SINCE JANUARY WE PERFORMED THREE, UM, COMMUNITY MEETINGS, NOT AT THE ACTUAL LOCATION, BUT AT A, AT TWO REC AT TWO RECREATION CENTERS IN THE SOUTH DALLAS AREA, WHICH WAS X LINE.

AND ALSO AT, UM, UM, JUANITA CRAFT.

THOSE MEETINGS WERE OPEN.

THEY WERE, WE, WE MADE SURE THAT WE GOT COMMENTS ON THOSE MEETINGS.

THERE WERE ALSO MEETINGS WITH, UH, THEIR ADVISORY BOARD AND OTHER COMMUNITY MEETINGS.

AND THEY, THEY ALSO CAME TO THE TASK FORCE MEETINGS AS EARLY AS OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR.

SO THEY, THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CASES THAT HAS BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED AND THE EFFECT OF PD 5 95, IT, THE PLAN, THIS WAS ONE OF THE FOCUS AREAS ALSO.

SO THAT WAS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE MADE SURE THAT DID IT FIT IN WELL? WHAT WAS GOING TO BE GOING FORWARD THAT HAD BEEN LOOKED OVER FOR A TWO YEAR PERIOD WITH THE SOUTH DALLAS TASK WAS AREA, UH, UH, TASK FORCE.

IT WAS A TASK FORCE THAT WAS FORMED TWO YEARS AGO THAT HAD INTENSIVE, UM, STUDIES ON THE WHOLE SOUTH DALLAS AREA.

AND SO IT DID FIT WITHIN THAT BOUNDARY.

THANK YOU COMMISSIONER WHEELER.

COMMISSIONER, ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS ITEM? OKAY.

SO, YOU KNOW, ALL A FAVOR, PLEASE SAY AYE.

AYE.

OPPOSED? AYE.

HAVE IT THE RECORD REFLECT THAT COMMISSIONER HAMPTON AND COMMISSIONER HOUSE RIDER STEPPING BACK INTO THE CHAMBER.

KEEP MOVING TO CASE NUMBER EIGHT.

ITEM EIGHT, CASE C 2 23 DASH 1 0 3.

AN APPLICATION FOR AN M MU TWO MIXED USE DISTRICT ON PROPERTY.

ZONED AN IR INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH DISTRICT WITH CONSIDERATION FOR A WMU FIVE WALKABLE URBAN MIXED USE DISTRICT ON THE SOUTHEAST LINE OF EMPIRE CENTRAL DRIVE, NORTHEAST OF HARRY HZ BOULEVARD.

STAS RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF A W M U FIVE WALKABLE URBAN MIXED USE DISTRICT IN LIEU OF AN M U TWO MIXED USE DISTRICT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SEE THAT THE APPLICANT IS ONLINE.

MR. BALDWIN, GOOD AFTERNOON, ROB BALDWIN 39 0 4 ELM STREET, SUITE B, YOU'RE REPRESENTING SLATE DEVELOPMENT IN THEIR REQUEST FOR THIS REZONING RE REQUEST.

UM, ORIGINALLY WE CAME IN, UH, WITH, UH, AN M U TWO DESIGNATION AND THEN WE'RE, WE'RE AFTER WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE COMMISSIONER WE'RE, WE'RE MORE MORPHING THAT OVER TO A WM U FIVE.

BUT LET ME ME GIVE YOU A QUICK BACKGROUND.

SO WE'RE JUST, UH, EMPIRE CENTRAL JUST OVER BY LOVEFIELD.

UH, THIS, THIS IS THE PROPERTY HERE.

IT'S ON THE, THE SOUTH SIDE OF EMPIRE CENTRAL.

IT'S A, A LARGE KIND OF AN OFFICE SHOWROOM, LIGHT INDUSTRIAL BUILDING.

UH, THIS IS AN IN EMPIRE CENTRAL IS INTERESTING WEST OF HARRY HINES.

IT'S CLEARLY INDUSTRIAL EAST OF HARRY HINES BETWEEN HARRY HINES AND MAPLE.

IT, IT WA I THINK IT WANTS TO TRANSITION.

IT WANTS TO TRANSITION RESIDENTIAL, UM, ON THE HARRY HINES SIDE OF EMPIRE CENTRAL, UH, THERE IS A, A QUESTIONABLE MOTEL THAT IS A PROBLEM FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, AND WE RECENTLY REZONED THIS PROPERTY RIGHT HERE TO MULTI-FAMILY AND THEN BRACKETING ON THE OTHER SIDE WHERE EMPIRE CENTRAL ENDS AT, UH, MAPLE.

THERE'S A, AN AMAZON DISTRIBUTION CENTER, UH, FOR, FOR FULFILLMENT CENTER THAT IS ALSO PROBLEMATIC FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WE CAME TO THE AGREEMENT THAT WE'D LIKE TO SEE MORE RESIDENTIAL IN THIS AREA.

SO ORIGINALLY, LIKE I SAID, WE WENT WITH A W M U TWO WITH DEED RESTRICTIONS, AND AS WE WERE WALKING THROUGH THE DEED RESTRICTIONS, IT KEPT TRYING TO GET TO AN WM U DISTRICT.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE START TALKING ABOUT BUILDING PLACEMENT, UH, CHANGES OF PLANE, UH, ARTICULATION.

SO WE DECIDED MAKES MORE SENSE RATHER THAN TO HAVE A, AN MU DISTRICT WITH DEED RESTRICTIONS THAT MIMIC WMU FIVE GO STRAIGHT WITH THE WM U FIVE.

UM, YOU KNOW, WE LOOKED AT SLATE, HAS DONE RECENTLY COMPLETED A PROJECT JUST EAST OF HERE AND IT KIND OF MATCHES WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING HERE.

SO THEY SAID THAT WOULD BE FINE.

THEY COULD MAKE THE WME FIVE WORK.

SO THIS IS A SITE, IT IS CURRENTLY ZONED IR, UM, IT'S EMPIRE CENTRAL ZONED IR ON EITHER SIDE, BUT THEN RIGHT ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE IR IS M MU TWO, WHICH IS ACTUALLY MOSTLY SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL.

UM, AGAIN, HERE'S THE, UH, THE, UH, THE AERIAL, IF YOU LOOK RIGHT UP HERE, UM, WITH THE, THE TAN ROOF, THAT IS THE NEW PROJECT.

IT'S SLATE JUST BUILT

[00:35:01]

ON MOHAWK AND EMPIRE CENTRAL.

UM, AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS AREA IS TRANSFORMING AND WE THINK THAT RESIDENTIAL IS THE PREFERRED USE IN THE FUTURE.

UM, LOOKING DOWN THIS KIND OF SHOWS WHERE THE SITE IS, YOU CAN SEE THAT WE DO HAVE SOME SMALL MULTI-FAMILY ON THE NORTH SIDE.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF THEM, UH, ISSA HERE.

SO, UH, IT'S, THIS AREA IS TRANSITIONING.

UH, THEY, THE WEST LOVE PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT GO RESIDENTIAL.

UH, IT, THIS REQUEST IS CONSISTENT WITH RECENT DEVELOPMENT PLANS.

OKAY.

YOUR TIME IS UP.

OKAY.

THANK YOU MR. RAWLIN, HELP US LEAVE YOU WITH THAT.

OKAY.

THERE MAY BE QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

IS THERE ANYONE HERE THAT WOULD LIKE TO BE HEARD ON THIS ITEM? OKAY.

COMMISSIONERS QUESTIONS FOR MR. BALDWIN.

COMMISSIONER STANDARD, PLEASE.

UH, MR. BALDWIN, I JUST WANNA CONFIRM SOMETHING THAT THIS PROJECT IS, UH, THAT YOU'RE PROPOSING THE ZONING CHANGE FOR IS NOT EXPECTED TO HAVE ANY AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMPONENT.

IS THAT CORRECT? IT IT AT THIS TIME, NO.

PARDON? NO, MA'AM.

NOT, NOT AT THIS TIME BECAUSE THE, THE WMU DOES NOT HAVE THAT EXCUSE INCOME COMPONENT TO IT.

OH, AND YOUR APPLICANT ISN'T VOLUNTEERING TO DO THAT? I'M JUST CONFIRMING THIS.

I DON'T BELIEVE THERE'S A VEHICLE TO DO THAT IN THE M THE, IN THE WMU, THE FORM BASED DISTRICTS WITHOUT GOING TO A PD.

GOSH, THAT'S A CATCH 22.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

INTERESTING LITTLE WRINKLE.

UH, MR. BALLIN, HOW MANY MORE SLIDES DID YOU HAVE IN YOUR PRESENTATION? OH, I JUST HAD ONE THAT WAS SILLY.

IT WAS JUST, I, I WENT TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND ASKED HIM TO WRITE A SONNET ABOUT FORM-BASED CODES.

IT WAS, WE HAVE TO SEE IT NOW.

I THINK IT'S KINDA FUN.

UH, I'M HAPPY TO SHARE THIS WITH Y'ALL AFTERWARDS IF YOU WANT TO.

UH, I, I HAVE TO TELL YOU, UH, MR. BALDWIN ON, WE'RE USING THE SMALL SCREENS TODAY AND SO THAT IT'S ABOUT THE SIZE OF A POSTAGE STAMP HERE.

SO I I SEE A LOT OF SQUIGGLY LINES.

OKAY.

BUT YEAH, I THINK THE QUESTION TO YOU, IS THERE AN AI ZONING CONSULTANT, BUT WE, YOU CAN PASS ON THAT QUESTION FOR NOW, .

YEAH, I, I WILL, UH, I WILL SEND IT TO RYAN IN CASE ANYBODY ELSE WANTS TO INTERVIEW IT.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

COMMISSIONER HAMPTON, PLEASE.

THANK YOU MR. CHAIR.

UM, MR. BALDWIN, YOU MENTIONED THAT THE, UM, APPLICANT ISN'T CURRENTLY PLANNING ON, UH, PROVIDING ANY AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

WAS THAT ANYTHING THAT WAS UNDER DISCUSSION FOR THIS PARTICULAR SITE WITH THIS APPLICANT? YEAH, AT, AT ONE TIME WE WERE, UH, WHEN WE WERE GOING TO THE M U TWO, UH, WE WERE GONNA DO AFFORDABLE HOUSING, YES.

OKAY.

UM, AND SO RELATED TO THAT, UM, COULD YOU SPEAK TO, UM, I BELIEVE YOU MENTIONED YOU'D MET WITH THE COMMUNITY AND GOT THEIR INPUT ON THE CASE? YES, I MET WITH, UH, THE WEST LOVE PEOPLE AND THEY WERE GREAT AND GRACIOUS AND THEY WERE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING TO DO.

AND YOU MENTIONED THERE WAS A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT, UM, WALKABILITY AND HOW THIS PROJECT FIT INTO THE OVERALL DEVELOPMENT PATTERN.

UM, THE GENERAL PLAN IS ROUGHLY A FIVE STORY, UM, STRUCTURE, MULTI-FAMILY.

THE MU IS, UM, RECOMMENDED OR REQUESTED BECAUSE OF THE EXISTING OFFICE USE.

IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT.

OUR, OUR, THE PERSON WHO OWNS THE PROPERTY TODAY WOULD NOT ALLOW US TO REZONE THEIR PROPERTY TO MAKE THEM NON-CONFORMING.

OKAY.

AND THEN YOU, YOU MENTIONED SOME OF THE SURROUNDING LAND USES AND THAT'S WHERE, UM, A LOT OF THE COMMUNITY CONCERN HAS TO DO WITH HOW TRAFFIC CIRCULATION, SOME OF THE, UM, TROUBLE THAT THEY'RE HAVING IN TERMS OF, UM, TRUCKS DELIVERIES, UM, THAT THAT WAS A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE DISCUSSION.

IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT.

UH, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, BASED ON MY DISCUSSIONS WITH THEM, THEY ARE HAVING A REAL PROBLEM WITH AMAZON.

UH, IT'S, IT'S THE AMAZON THERE AS YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS KNOW.

IT'S ONE WHERE, UH, THE LITTLE TRUCKS COME TO, TO PICK UP THEIR DAY LOAD AND IT, YOU KNOW, THEY'LL HAVE 50 OR 60 TRUCKS ALL COME IN AT THE SAME TIME AND LEAVE AT THE SAME TIME AND DO THAT A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY.

AND THAT'S A USE THAT'S PERMITTED BY RIGHT, UH, RIGHT AT THE EDGE OF A NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND THAT'S VERY DISRUPTIVE.

AND THE NEIGHBORS WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS SECTION TRANS TRANSFORM A MORE WALKABLE, UH, PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY, UH, CORRIDOR, UH, LEADING FROM HARRY HINES TO MAPLE IN THE HOPE THAT THAT WILL, UH, ATTRACT ENOUGH EYES ON

[00:40:01]

THE STREET TO HELP GET RID OF THE PROBLEM USES ALONG HARRY HINES.

THANK YOU.

ONE FINAL QUESTION.

WE HAVE THE, UM, T M P THAT'S IN OUR DOCKET, WHICH WAS PART OF THE ORIGINAL REQUEST.

THE PLAN THAT'S IN THAT WILL BE UPDATED IF THIS M U DISTRICT IS APPROVED.

IS THAT CORRECT? YES, MA'AM.

UH, DAVID WILL MAKE US UPDATE THE TMP ONCE, UH, WE COME IN FOR PERMITTING.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

THANK YOU.

QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONERS, QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? C NONE.

COMMISSIONER HAMPTON, DO YOU HAVE A MOTION? I DO.

THANK YOU MR. CHAIR IN THE MATTER OF Z 2 23 DASH 1 0 3, I MOVE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND APPROVE THE REQUEST AS A WALKABLE M W M U FIVE WALKABLE URBAN MIXED USE DISTRICT IN LIEU OF M U TWO MIXED USE DISTRICT.

THANK YOU COMMISSIONER HAMPTON FOR YOUR MOTION.

COMMISSIONER TRO FOR YOUR SECOND COMMENTS? NO.

OH, I HAVE ONE PLEASE.

COMMISSIONER, I JUST NOTICED THAT FOREST PARK CROSS STREET WITH TREADWAY STREET, NOT JUST THOUGHT IT WAS NEVERMIND.

THANK YOU, .

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE OF THOSE IN FAVOR, PLEASE SAY AYE.

AYE.

ANY OPPOSED? AYES HAVE IT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR.

NEXT CASE.

MR. MULKEY, THIS CASE HAS NOT BEEN BRIEF.

WE'LL BEGIN WITH THE BRIEFING.

UH, DO I READ IT INTO THE RECORD FIRST? OKAY.

I, I'M, OKAY, I'LL JUST START PRESENTING.

I CAN'T EVER KEEP TRACK.

OKAY.

GOOD AFTERNOON, COMMISSIONERS.

UM, NEXT CASE IS Z 2 23 DASH 117.

THE REQUEST IS FOR AN MF TWO, A MULTI-FAMILY DEED RE, UH, MULTI-FAMILY DISTRICT WITH DEED RESTRICTIONS VOLUNTEERED BY THE APPLICANT ON PROPERTIES OWNED AN N O A NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE DISTRICT, AND A PA PARKING DISTRICT.

IT'S LOCATED ON THE SOUTH LINE OF GLENFIELD AVENUE, WEST OF SOUTHAMPTON ROAD, AND IT'S APPROXIMATELY 1.8 ACRES LOCATION MAP SHOWING THE PROPERTY WITHIN CITY LIMITS.

UH, AERIAL MAP WITH THE PROPERTY OUTLINED IN BLUE.

UM, YOU CAN SEE IT COMPRISES ALL OF THOSE PARCELS, UM, STARTING ON GLENFIELD AVENUE AND THEN KIND OF GOING AROUND THE BEND BEHIND THOSE EXISTING SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

UH, AND ZONING MAP WAS SURROUNDING DISTRICTS AND LAND USES, SO TO THE NORTH AND THE WEST, UH, IS AN R 75 A DISTRICT, UM, THAT IS DEVELOPED WITH SINGLE FAMILY, UH, TO THE EAST, UM, IS A GENERAL MERCHANDISE PERSONAL SERVICE AN OFFICE USES, AS WELL AS, UM, MEDICAL CLINIC.

UH, AND THEN FURTHER EAST OF THAT IS SINGLE FAMILY.

UM, TO THE SOUTH IS AN EXISTING OFFICE USE INTO THE SOUTHWEST IS A VACANT STRUCTURE THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY USED, UM, AS A HOSPITAL.

SO THE PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY ZONED BOTH IN N NOA DISTRICT AND A PA PARKING DISTRICT.

IT'S CURRENTLY UNDEVELOPED.

THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO REDEVELOP THE PROPERTY WITH RESIDENTIAL USES TO ACCOMPLISH THIS.

THEY ARE REQUESTING AN MF TWO A DISTRICT.

UM, IN ADDITION TO THIS, THE APPLICANT HAS ALSO VOLUNTEERED, UH, DEED RESTRICTIONS THAT WOULD FURTHER RESTRICT DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, THESE CONDITIONS ARE INTENDED TO RESTRICT DENSITY OF THE SITE, UM, PROVIDE ENHANCED BUFFERING ADJACENT TO SURROUNDING SINGLE FAMILY USES AND PROVIDE ENHANCED DESIGN STANDARDS.

SO SITE PHOTOS, THIS IS ON GLENFIELD AVENUE LOOKING SOUTH, UH, AT THE STREET FRONTAGE OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, AND THEN YOU CAN KIND OF, I DON'T GO ON PRIVATE PROPERTY, UH, BUT UM, YOU CAN KIND OF SEE AROUND THE BEND THE REMAINDER OF THE REQUEST AREA.

UM, AND THEN THIS IS, UH, LOOKING SOUTHWEST ON GLENFIELD AVENUE.

WE'RE JUST MOVING IN A CLOCKWISE DIRECTION.

YOU CAN SEE THOSE EXISTING SINGLE FAMILY HOMES TO THE NORTH AND WEST, AND THEN THE BACKSIDE OF THAT COMMERCIAL.

UH, SO THESE ARE THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS OF THE TWO EXISTING ZONING DISTRICTS AS WELL AS THE PROPOSED MF TWO A.

UM, AND THEN, UM, MF TWO A WOULD BE ENTITLED, UM, TO DEVELOPMENT BONUSES IF AFFORDABLE UNITS ARE PROVIDED.

UM, I HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN INDICATION FROM THE APPLICANT THAT THEY INTEND TO DO THIS, BUT THEY WOULD BE AVAILABLE UNDER A STRAIGHT ZONING DISTRICT.

UM, WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THIS? UH, YEAH, SO THE, UH, M I H DB, UH, WOULD APPLY, UM, TO HEIGHT AND TO LOT COVERAGE, ALTHOUGH THAT 85 FOOT HEIGHT WOULD STILL BE SUBJECT TO RPS, WHICH IS GENERATED

[00:45:01]

BY THE ADJACENT R 75 A DISTRICT.

UH, THIS IS AN A GVA AREA, SO THEY WOULD NEED TO PROVIDE, UH, 5% OF THE UNITS AT, UH, INCOME BAND 3 81 TO A HUNDRED PERCENT, UM, TO RECEIVE THOSE BONUSES.

UH, AND THEN AN, UH, ONE UPDATE SINCE THE DOCKET PUBLICATION.

UM, SINCE, UH, ON THE, ON THE DEED RESTRICTIONS, UM, WE ARE, UH, WE HAVE ADDED THIS, UM, PHRASE TO THE BEGINNING OF CONDITION THREE.

UM, THAT WOULD EXEMPT THE GLENFIELD AVENUE FRONTAGE, UM, FROM MEETING, UH, THAT REQUIREMENT FOR AN EIGHT FOOT, EIGHT FOOT TALL WOODEN FENCE.

THAT CONDITION'S REALLY INTENDED FOR WHERE THE PROPERTY ABUTS, UM, EXISTING RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS.

UM, SO YOU WANT TO AVOID A CONFLICT ALONG GLENFIELD AVENUE.

AND WITH THAT STATUS RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL SUBJECT TO DEED RESTRICTIONS VOLUNTEERED BY THE APPLICANT.

AND I AM AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER CARPENTER, PLEASE, MR. MALKA, GIVEN THE DUE RESTRICTIONS THAT ARE LIMITING THE, UM, NUMBER OF UNITS AND, UM, UH, REQUIRING A PROVISION FOR A A TWO CAR GARAGE, UM, WOULD THERE BE ANY INCENTIVES AVAILABLE AND, AND THE LIMITATION OF PRE RESIDENTIAL PROXIMITY SLOPE? WOULD THERE BE ANY INCENTIVES THAT THIS PROJECT WOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR IF THEY WERE INCLINED TO GO THROUGH THE MIXED INCOME HOUSING PROGRAM? YEAH, BECAUSE THEY'RE LIMITED ON THE HEIGHT.

UM, REALLY THE ONLY DEVELOPMENT BONUS, UH, DEVELOPMENT BONUS THAT COULD BE APPLIED IS TO LOT COVERAGE.

THEY COULD INCREASE THEIR LOT COVERAGE FROM 60 TO, I THINK 85%.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

EXCELLENT QUESTION.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONERS, UH, OUR COMMISSIONER, ER, PLEASE.

I DON'T, I I CAN'T SEE YOU ON THE PRESENTATION.

ON MY APOLOGIES, COMMISSIONER RUDY, IT'S HARD FOR ME TO SEE YOU ALL TOO.

SO THANKS FOR PREPARING WITH ME WHEN I'M REMOTE TODAY.

UH, MR. MULKEY, I, I BRIEFLY HANDLED THIS ONE WHILE D THREE WAS VACANT.

CAN YOU GIVE A LITTLE CONTEXT OF THE HISTORY O OF THIS ONE AND, AND HOW IT, HOW THEY GOT TO THE DEEDS RESTRICTIONS HERE? SURE.

YEAH.

UM, SO THIS IS ANOTHER ONE OF, UM, THOSE CASES THAT I'VE HAD RECENTLY FOR YOU GUYS.

UM, THAT'S, UM, AT LEAST ATTEMPTING TO PROVIDE, UH, A DENSER RESIDENTIAL PRODUCT EITHER ALONG THE EDGE OF AN ESTABLISHED SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD OR, OR SOMETIMES WITHIN, UH, AN EXISTING SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, STAFF DIDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE ANY OBJECTIONS TO THAT.

UM, HOWEVER, BASED ON SOME, UM, RECENT CASES, INCLUDING A CASE IN DISTRICT FIVE, IT WAS PROPOSING SOMETHING SIMILAR.

UM, WHERE THAT CASE ARRIVED AT, UM, WAS SOME DEED RESTRICTIONS THAT, UM, THIS DISTRICT WAS GONNA BE MF TWO, BUT THOSE CONDITIONS ESSENTIALLY, UM, NECESSITATED MORE OF A TOWNHOME STYLE PRODUCT, ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED MULTI-FAMILY BY OUR CODE.

UM, SO, UH, STAFF MADE THE RECOMMENDATION, UM, TO THE APPLICANT, UM, THAT THEY CONSIDER DOING SOMETHING SIMILAR HERE.

UM, AND THEY, THEY DID, UM, AGREE WITH US ON THAT.

SO THEY HAVE VOLUNTEERED, UM, THESE CONDITIONS.

UM, AND I, UH, STAFF HAS WORKED WITH THE APPLICANT ON, UM, AT LEAST THEIR CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF THE SITE, UM, TO, UH, KIND OF CODIFY SOME STANDARDS THAT WOULD REINFORCE THAT DESIGN, UM, AND, AND CERTAINLY PROVIDE SOME BUFFERING IN THE FORM OF LANDSCAPING AND, AND FENCING, UM, ADJACENT TO THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL.

GREAT.

AND, AND ON THE PART THAT'S DESIGNATED NOA, HAVE THERE EVER BEEN ANY EXISTING RETAIL USES ON THERE? UH, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT, UH, THERE HAS NOT, I BELIEVE IF I REMEMBER FROM THE CASE HISTORY, IT WAS REZONED TO NOA WITH THAT PARKING DISTRICT, UM, 10 OR 15 YEARS AGO, UM, FOR, UH, OFFICE USE THAT WAS EITHER GONNA BE CONJOINED WITH THE EXISTING COMMERCIAL TO THE EAST OR THE, UH, MEDICAL USES TO THE SOUTH.

UM, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE THAT EVER PANNED OUT.

OKAY.

GREAT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOR YOU, MR. MULKEY.

UH, WOULD THIS BE CONSIDERED, UH, DOWN ZONING? IT WOULD YEAH.

ANY, ANY KIND OF, UM, COMMERCIAL ZONING, UM, TO A RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT, WE WOULD CONSIDER THAT DOWN ZONING.

OKAY.

THEN ALSO IN YOUR CASE REPORT, UH, YOU, YOU USE THE WORD TRANSITIONING AND AS YOU KNOW, YOUR, UH, THE SLIDESHOW HERE, UNFORTUNATELY WE'RE USING THIS LITTLE BD TV HERE, SO, YEAH.

UH, I THINK THERE ARE A COUPLE OF INTERESTING THINGS THAT, UM, COUPLE OF, SOME INFORMATION THAT, UH, THAT WE COULD GET, ESPECIALLY FROM A SITE VISIT, WHICH I, I RECEIVED THAT I'M, I'M HOPING THAT WILL BE TRANSMITTED BY YOUR, UH, SLIDES, WHICH IS IF YOU COULD MAYBE WALK US THROUGH FROM, UH, EAST TO WEST HERE, HOW, WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE WITH THE USES? SURE.

THAT FITS RIGHT INTO THE WORD THAT YOU USE IN YOUR CASE REPORT WITH THE TRANSITIONING.

YEAH.

YEAH.

[00:50:01]

SO ALONG THE, UH, FRONTAGE HERE OF THIS MAJOR, UH, LIKE THIS PRINCIPAL ARTERIAL, UM, IT'S OWNS CR UM, THAT'S ONE OF THE MORE INTENSE COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS WE HAVE IN THE CITY.

UM, CURRENTLY ON, ON, UH, THAT PROPERTY IS A MIX OF GENERAL MERCHANDISE USES PERSONAL SERVICE USES, OFFICE USES MEDICAL CLINICS.

SO THOSE ARE SORT OF NOT SUPER INTENSE, UM, COMMERCIAL USES, ALTHOUGH CR CERTAINLY ALLOWS FOR SOME, THEY'RE SORT OF MEDIUM INTENSITY COMMERCIAL USES.

UM, AND THEN IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THAT, AS YOU GO WEST ON GLENFIELD AVENUE IS, UM, WHAT IS PRIMARILY ZONED IN OUR 75 A DISTRICT.

I THINK THAT'S THE MOST COMMON, UM, SINGLE FAMILY ZONING THAT WE HAVE IN THE CITY.

AND, AND AS IT SAYS HERE, UM, THOSE ARE ALL ZONED, THOSE ARE DEVELOPED WITH, UH, SINGLE FAMILY USES TODAY.

UM, THE NOA AND THE PA UM, NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE IS, IS ONE OF THE OFFICE DISTRICTS THAT'S INTENDED TO BE ADJACENT TO EXISTING SINGLE FAMILY.

IT ALLOWS FOR VERY, VERY LOW INTENSITY, UM, OFFICE USES.

UM, AND I THINK SOME PERSONAL SERVICE, BUT I MEAN, IT'S, IT'S SORT OF A SCENARIO WHERE YOU MIGHT HAVE AN ATTORNEY'S OFFICE OR SOME SORT OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, UM, ALONG THE EDGE OF AN EXISTING NEIGHBORHOOD THAT ISN'T TOO INTRUSIVE, UM, AS YOU DESCRIBED, UM, THIS WOULD DEFINITELY BE CONSIDERED A DOWN ZONING, UM, TO A RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT, UM, THAT IS, YOU KNOW, MORE DENSE OR IT ALLOWS FOR, UM, MORE DENSITY THAN AN R 75 A DISTRICT, BUT IT WOULD STILL BE LESS INTENSE THAN ANY KIND OF DISTRICT THAT ALLOWS FOR COMMERCIAL USES.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. MULKEY.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER HAMPTON, PLEASE.

SORRY.

THANK YOU.

MR. MULKEY.

I'LL APOLOGIZE IF YOU COVERED THIS AND I MISSED IT.

UM, YOU COVERED A LOT OF THINGS I HAD WONDERED ABOUT WITH THE BUFFER ZONE AND THE FENCING AND, AND HOW THE, ESSENTIALLY THAT ADJACENCY WOULD BE HANDLED, BUT I DID NOT HEAR THE, UM, HOW THE FRONT YARD SETBACK WOULD RELATE TO THE ADJACENT PROPERTY.

SO THAT CONTINUITY OF THE BLOCK FACE MF TWO WOULD ALLOW FOR 15 FEET.

I THINK R SEVEN FIVE IS TYPICALLY 25, IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY.

MM-HMM.

.

SO IS THIS GONNA BE IN FRONT OF THOSE OR WILL THAT 25 SET A STANDARD FOR THEM TO PUSH BACK? YEAH, SO FOR BLOCK FACE CONTINUITY, THE, UH, ZONING DISTRICT ALONG THE BLOCK FACE THAT HAS THE MOST RESTRICTIVE SETBACK APPLIES TO ANY OTHER ZONING DISTRICT AROUND THAT BLOCK FACE.

UM, SO YES, IT, I, I BELIEVE YOU'RE CORRECT, 25 FEET IN R SEVEN FIVE A, UH, THOSE LOTS WOULD, UM, ENFORCE A 25 FOOT FRONT SETBACK ON ANY PROPERTIES ON MF TWO A.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

THANK YOU.

COMMISS.

COMMISSIONER HARBERT.

YEAH, SO A COUPLE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.

UM, THE PROPERTY, AS YOU CAN SEE, OR AS YOU GUYS KNOW, IT'S IN A SLITTER SLITHER OF A SPOT AND IT'S GONNA WRAP AROUND.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE, UM, THE FACILITY THAT IT'S A BUDDING TO IS NOT AN OPERATION CURRENTLY AND, UM, HAS BEEN PURCHASED BY THE CITY FOR FUTURE PLANS.

BUT WILL THESE COMPLEXES PER SE WRAP AROUND THESE PEOPLE'S BACKYARDS, THE HOUSES THAT ARE, ARE NEXT DOOR? UM, RIGHT, BECAUSE THIS IS A GENERAL ZONING CHANGE, WE DON'T HAVE A DEFINED, UM, SITE PLAN THAT WOULD BE ADOPTED WITH THE ORDINANCE, UM, FROM SOME CONCEPTUAL SITE PLANS, UM, THAT I'VE SEEN PROVIDED BY THE APPLICANT.

THAT IS THE INTENT.

UM, I BELIEVE THEIR INTENT IS TO, THERE'S ACTUALLY EXISTING RIGHT OF WAY HERE WHERE IT SAYS, SAYS BARLOW AVENUE, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT KIND OF TERMINATES HERE AT A CUL-DE-SAC.

MM-HMM.

CUTOUT.

UM, I BELIEVE THEIR INTENT IS TO, IT'S NOT CURRENTLY PAVED TODAY, BUT TO PAVE THAT RIGHT OF WAY, UM, AND TO HAVE, UM, SOME OF THESE DWELLING UNITS FACE, UM, THAT NEWLY CONSTRUCTED STREET.

UM, SO THEIR, THE BACK OF THOSE UNITS WOULD, UM, ABOUT THE BACK OF THE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES THAT FACE GLENFIELD AVENUE.

OKAY.

THAT'S, BUT AGAIN, THAT'S JUST A CONCEPTUAL PLAN.

GOTCHA.

AND IT'S A BIT CONCERNING FOR ME AND THOSE NEIGHBORS.

UM, THANK YOU STAN.

COMMISSIONER STAN? YEAH, I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS.

COMMISSIONER HAMPTON HANDLED ONE, BUT GOING TO THE, UH, LAST QUESTION.

WHAT IS THE SETBACK BETWEEN, CUZ THAT'S CONSIDERED, WHAT IS THAT CONSIDERED BETWEEN THE HOUSES AND THE BUILDING? IS THAT CONSIDERED THE REAR YARD OR PART OF THE FRONT YARD? UH, THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A REAR YARD.

EVEN THOUGH THE FRONT, LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS.

SURE.

THE FRONT IS ON GLEN, WHATEVER IT IS, RIGHT.

THAT PART THAT JUTS OUT FRONT MM-HMM.

, THAT WOULD BE THE FRONT YARD.

YEAH.

OKAY.

SO EVEN THOUGH THIS ISN'T IN THE REAR OF THE BUILDING, WHAT IS THE SETBACK BETWEEN THE HOUSES IN THAT? UM, I DON'T BELIEVE AN INCREASED SETBACK ADJACENT TO SINGLE FAMILY IS TRIGGERED, UM, IN AN MF TWO A DISTRICT.

UM, BUT YOU'LL SEE HERE IN THE SIDE AND REAR YARD SETBACKS OF THE STANDARDS TABLE THAT I CAN ZOOM IN ON CUZ YOU GUYS ARE LOOKING AT TINY LITTLE SCREENS, .

UM,

[00:55:01]

SO FOR A SINGLE FAMILY USE, THAT WOULD JUST BE ONE DWELLING UNIT ON THE ENTIRE LOT.

THERE WOULDN'T BE ANY, AND THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED OTHER, UM, BECAUSE IT'S THREE OR MORE DWELLING UNITS ON A LOT.

UM, SO THAT WOULD BE A 10 FOOT SIDE SETBACK AND A 15 FOOT REAR SETBACK.

AND THAT'S IN ADDITION TO WHAT THE APPLICANTS IS VOLUNTEERING.

OKAY.

SO YOU'RE CONSIDERING THAT A REAR, IS THAT CORRECT? THAT'S CORRECT, YEAH.

I MEAN IT'S SORT OF, UH, IT'S AN, IT'S A STRANGE BECAUSE I WOULD CONSIDER THE REAR ON BARLOW IS WHAT I'M SAYING.

MM-HMM.

, BECAUSE I CONSIDER THAT SORT OF CONCERNING TOO, THAT IT REALLY DOES NEED TO BE MORE LIKE 15 IF NOT MORE FROM THE HOUSES.

I MEAN, SO WHAT IS THE, AND THE CUZ 36 FEET THAT CLOSE TO A HOUSE YOU COULD STILL SEE RIGHT INTO THEIR BACK WINDOWS? WELL, IT WOULD BE, UM, IT WOULD BE SUBJECT TO R P S.

OKAY.

SO IT IS GONNA STILL BE SUBJECT TO RRP S RIGHT.

FOR THE FIRST 78 FEET AWAY FROM THAT SHARED PROPERTY LINE STRUCTURES COULD NOT EXCEED 26 FEET IN HEIGHT.

OKAY.

I FORGOT ABOUT THAT.

OKAY.

ONE LAST QUESTION, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE COVERED THIS.

WAS THERE A COMMUNITY MEETING ABOUT THIS? DID THESE PEOPLE GET TO WEIGH IN ON THIS AT ALL? UM, I HAVEN'T BEEN MADE AWARE OF ONE.

AGAIN, OUR LAME BOILER PLATE RESPONSE AS WE ALWAYS ENCOURAGE YEAH.

APPLICANTS TO MEET WITH THE COMMUNITY.

UM, BUT I HAVEN'T, I'M NOT AWARE THAT ONE OCCURRED ON THIS.

WELL, I MEAN, I GUESS I JUST FEEL LIKE PARTICULARLY AS CLOSE AS THIS IS TO ALL THESE SINGLE FAMILY PEOPLE, I FEEL LIKE THEY SHOULD HAVE SOME VOICE IN THIS.

I MEAN, THIS IS GONNA HAVE A MAJOR EFFECT ON THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO I WAS JUST CURIOUS SIR.

COMMISSIONER YOUNG COUPLE QUESTIONS.

UH, FOLLOWING UP ON COMMISSIONER HAMPTON'S QUESTION ABOUT BLACKFACE CONTINUITY ON GLENFIELD.

AM I RIGHT THAT BECAUSE THE BARLOW AVENUE FRONTAGE IS A REAR YARD, THERE WOULD NOT BE A SIMILAR BLOCK FACE CONTINUITY REQUIREMENT ALONG BARLOW? I BELIEVE SO.

UM, I BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE THE CASE.

UM, I'M KIND OF HOPING, UM, ONE OF MY COWORKERS THAT USED TO WORK IN DEVELOPMENT SERVICES IS LISTENING INTO THIS MEETING BECAUSE THEY COULD DEFINITELY CONFIRM HOW THAT WOULD BE TREATED.

WELL, THAT'S MY QUESTION.

UH, MR. MULKEY DESCRIBED IT AS A REAR YARD, BUT I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHICH IT IS BECAUSE IF IT'S NOT SUBJECT TO BLACKFACE CONTINUITY, THEN THOSE TWO HOUSES ON BARLOW TO THE EAST TO THE WEST OF THE SITE, WHICH APPEAR FROM AERIAL PHOTOS TO BE SET BACK THE REQUIRED 25 FEET.

MM-HMM.

WOULD HAVE ONLY A 10 TO 15 FOOT REAR YARD SETBACK ADJACENT TO THEM.

YEAH.

IT, IT MAY BE THAT IF THEY DO, UM, DEVELOP THAT RIGHT OF WAY THAT EXISTS THERE TODAY, THAT WOULD BECOME A STREET.

UM, AND THAT MAY BE TREATED AS A FRONT YARD AS WELL.

UM, OKAY.

IT'S, YEAH, I I I'M NOT A HUNDRED PERCENT ON THAT AND IT'S, BUT IT'S NOT WHEN IT'S ADJACENT TO A, AN UNDEVELOPED STREET RIGHT OF WAY.

NO, WE NEED TO CLARIFY ON THAT.

YEAH.

I I I DON'T THINK I HAVE AN ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION, BUT I AGREE THAT IT DOES NEED TO BE CLARIFIED, DON'T WE? WE'LL HAVE AN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

SORRY.

DON'T WE HAVE A SIMILAR CASE THAT HAD A THROUGH LOT, ESSENTIALLY A LOT THAT WAS FRONTING ONTO TWO RIGHT OF WAYS DOUBLE FRONT EDGE AND THAT THEY'RE BOTH CONSIDERED TO BE THE FRONT YARD.

YES.

YEAH, AND I'M TRYING TO FIND THE PROVISION OF 51 A, BUT HOPEFULLY ONE OF YOUR COLLEAGUES CAN GET THERE BEFORE I DO DOUBLE FRONT EDGE IS RIGHT, IS WHAT THAT WOULD BE REFERRED TO.

YEAH.

RIGHT.

AND SO WOULDN'T THAT, WHY WOULD THAT NOT APPLY TO THIS CASE? BECAUSE OF I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE, YEAH.

OKAY.

EVEN, EVEN THOUGH THE ADJACENT STREET RIGHT OF WAY IS UNDEVELOPED.

YEAH.

BUT WHY WOULD THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE? YEAH, BECAUSE IT'S, I'M NOT SURE IT WOULD, BUT I'M, I'M ASKING, I BELIEVE IT BECAUSE IT'S BEEN PLATTED AS RIGHT OF WAY.

OKAY.

AND, AND, UM, YOU KNOW, BASED ON THE CONCEPTUAL PLANS I RECEIVED FROM THE APPLICANT, THEY DO INTEND TO PAVE THAT RIGHT OF WAY.

SO I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A FRONT YARD AS WELL.

NOW NEXT QUESTION RELATES TO THE UNDEVELOPED ALLEY RIGHT OF WAY IN THAT BLOCK FACE.

AM I RIGHT? IF THAT IS EVER DEVELOPED, THERE WOULD NOT BE ACCESS ALLOWED FROM THE MULTIFAMILY TO THE ALLEY CAUSE THE ALLEY SERVES RESIDENTIAL ZONING? I BELIEVE SO.

I DON'T, I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION EITHER.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER HAMPTON, JUST ONE FOLLOW UP IN CASE THERE IS ANY, I GUESS LACK OF CLARITY ON BOTH FRONTAGES BEING CONSIDERED AS A FRONT YARD AND TO PRESERVE THE SPIRIT OF 51 A, WOULD IT BE APPROPRIATE TO CONSIDER THAT, I GUESS THE APPLICANT WOULD NEED TO VOLUNTEER THAT AS PART OF THE DE RESTRICTIONS, IS THAT CORRECT? THEY, THEY COULD DO THAT AS WELL.

YEAH.

THANK YOU.

YEAH, THANK YOU.

THANK MR. CHAIR.

JUST ASKED HIM THAT.

COMMISSIONER

[01:00:01]

HAMPTON, THANK YOU FOR THAT ONE.

STEP AHEAD.

YES.

COMMISSIONER WHEELER.

WAS ANY CONSIDERATION TO MAYBE A MIXED USE BECAUSE IT SITS IN BOTH RESIDENTIAL AND A, UH, COMMERCIAL DISTRICT OR NO? SAY THAT AGAIN.

I'M SORRY.

IS THERE ANY CONSIDERATION UNTIL SUCH A, SOMETHING LIKE A MIXED USE BEING SINCE THAT IT SITS IN COMMERCIAL AND IN RESIDENTIAL OR NO, I MEAN A SMALL SCALE, UM, MIXED USE OR WALKABLE MIX USE? YEAH, THE, THE PROPOSAL FROM THE APPLICANT IS JUST FOR RESIDENTIAL USES.

UM, I THINK, UH, A MIXED USE DISTRICT WOULD BE A, A TOUGHER SELL, UM OKAY.

IN THIS AREA, BUT YEAH.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR STAFF FROM ANY OF OUR FOLKS ONLINE? OKAY.

COMMISSIONERS WILL BEGIN THE HEARING.

READING THE RECORD PLEASE.

YES.

.

UH, ITEM NINE CASE, UH, Z 2 23 DASH 117.

AND APPLICATION FOR AN MF TWO, A MULTI-FAMILY DISTRICT WITH DEED RESTRICTIONS VOLUNTEERED BY THE APPLICANT ON PROPERTY ZONED IN N O A NEIGHBORHOOD OFFICE DISTRICT, AND A PA PARKING DISTRICT ON THE SOUTH LINE OF GLENFIELD AVENUE WEST OF SOUTHAMPTON ROAD.

THE STATUS RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL SUBJECT TO DEED RESTRICTIONS VOLUNTEERED BY THE APPLICANT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. MULKEY.

IS THERE ANYONE HERE THAT WOULD LIKE TO BE HEARD ON THIS ITEM? IS THAT REGISTERED SPEAKER ONLINE? NOT.

NOT ONLINE.

WAS HE ONLINE BEFORE? HAS HE EVER BEEN ONLINE? NO.

COMMISSIONER'S.

QUESTIONS FOR STAFF COMMISSIONER STANDARD, PLEASE.

WELL, I DON'T KNOW THAT IT'S A QUESTION.

I GUESS I, I GUESS IT'S A QUESTION.

I MEAN, SINCE WE CAN'T CLARIFY RIGHT NOW, I GUESS IS WHAT I'M SAYING, SINCE WE CAN'T CLARIFY RIGHT NOW WHAT'S CONSIDERED A FRONT YARD, WHAT'S CON NOT CONSIDERED.

SO THEREFORE IT AFFECTS WHAT THE SETBACKS ARE AND, AND THOSE, AND, YOU KNOW, THAT IMPACTS THE, THE NEIGHBORS.

UH, SHOULDN'T WE POSSIBLY HOLD THIS OVER UNTIL WE CAN FIND THAT OUT? YEAH, YOU KNOW, I'M, I'M, I'M MESSAGING MY COWORKERS ASKING FOR HELP AND THEY THINK I'M JOKING.

I I'M NOT JOKING.

I ACTUALLY NEED ASSISTANCE HERE.

SO IF JENNIFER ALL GEER, THAT IS AN OPTION.

CAMINO STANDARD BE WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE, WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT IT.

THE APPLICANT WAS IN CONTACT WITH COMMISSIONER HERBERT AND IT'S, UH, WE'RE SURPRISED HE'S, HE'S NOT HERE.

SO, UM, HE DID REGISTER TO SPEAK, SO MAYBE SOMETHING HAPPENED.

COMMISSIONER WHEELER, PLEASE.

MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS THAT WASN'T OUR COMMUNITY MEETING WITH THIS CITY.

SO WHEN THESE TYPE OF PROJECTS WITH OUR COMMUNITY MEETINGS IS ALMOST LIKE IMPOSING ONTO THE COMMUNITY, THIS HITS TOO CLOSE.

IT'S IN THE RESIDENTIAL, BOTH SIDES OF THE APARTMENTS AND THE REAR SI, UH, BACKS TO RESIDENTIAL THAT HAS ALWAYS HAD RESIDENTIAL USES, UH, SURROUNDED.

I THINK THAT WE SHOULD AT LEAST, I MEAN, ADVISE A COMMUNITY MEETING WHILE I'VE BEEN THERE.

THE CASE PLUS THERE WERE SEVEN IN OPPOSITION.

SO THERE ARE SOME ISSUES.

WE'RE WE'RE STILL AT QUESTIONS ACTUALLY.

COMMISSIONERS.

OH YEAH, THIS MIGHT.

QUESTIONS FOR STAFF .

MR. MULKEY, ARE YOU MR, I HAVE TO BE MISS COMMISSIONER STANDARDS, PLEASE.

ARE YOU AWARE THAT THERE'S, LET'S TRY TO LIMIT THE, ARE YOU AWARES WE GET ENOUGH? ARE YOU AWARE? DO WE, ARE YOU AWARE THERE'S NOT A COMMUNITY MEETING TODAY? WE HAVE Y'ALL.

THIS IS NOT JEOPARDY.

THIS IS THE, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE EVER SEEN HIM TIE TIE TONE.

OH, IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE.

COMMISSIONER BELAY, PLEASE.

SO WE ARE TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE WHETHER IT WAS A COMMUNITY MEETING OR NOT, CORRECT? TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, THERE HAS NOT BEEN A COMMUNITY MEETING.

I HAVE NOT BEEN A MAID AWARE OF ONE.

UM, THE DISTRICT COMMISSIONER ALSO SAID THAT, AS IN, DURING HIS TIME, UM, AS THE COMMISSIONER, THERE HAS NOT BEEN A COMMUNITY MEETING.

UM, COMMISSIONER RUBEN MIGHT BE ABLE TO ELUCIDATE.

UM, BUT I'M NOT AWARE OF ANYTHING ARE ARE YOU AWARE OF WHETHER

[01:05:01]

THERE WERE OUTREACH EFFORTS OTHER THAN A COMMUNITY MEETING SUCH AS HIS DOOR-TO-DOOR CONTACT OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT? IN THE FORM OF A QUESTION? I AM NOT AWARE OF ANY OF THAT HAPPENING.

.

OKAY.

MR. MR. MULKEY, ARE YOU AWARE THAT COMMISSIONER HERBERT INTENDS TO HOLD THE MATTER UNDER ADVISEMENT TILL MAY 18TH? I AM NOW.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONERS? SEEING NONE, DO I HAVE A MOTION? COMMISSIONER HERBERT? YES.
