Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has submitted an Initial Planned Development Overlay to allow a storage area. On March 23, 2017, the Planning Commission directed the applicant to submit an Initial Planned Development Overlay to be heard in conjunction with a Rezoning request (File #17RZ010) from General Commercial District to Light Industrial District. The Planning Commission stated that the following issues needed to be addressed: • Truck traffic access away from East Saint Patrick Street and securing access through property to the north and west; • A landscape and screening buffer along East Saint Patrick Street; and, • Information regarding lighting and signage. The submitted site plan shows an industrial storage yard and identifies a 25 foot wide landscaped boulevard along East Saint Patrick Street. In addition, the site plan shows no new approaches to the proposed storage yard from East Saint Patrick Street other than the existing approach utilized for maintaining the existing billboard signs. The site plan indicates that the applicant will construct a 7 foot high chain link fence with slats to provide screening of the storage yard. The applicant’s letter of intent states that no new signage is proposed and all lighting will be interior to the site. If the Planning Commission determines that the property is appropriate for industrial uses that the Initial Planned Development Overlay be approved with the stipulations and in conjunction the associated Rezoning request.
