Agenda Item Summary:
(Update November 30, 2018. All revised and/or added text is shown in bold.) This item was continued from the November 21, 2018 Planning Commission meeting at the applicant’s request to allow them to visit with the neighborhood regarding the location and design of the accessory structure. If the Planning Commission determines that the proposed elevations are appropriate, staff recommends that the Final Planned Development Overlay be approved with stipulations. (Update November 13, 2018. All revised and/or added text is shown in bold.) This item was continued from the November 8, 2018 Planning Commission meeting to allow the applicant to submit revised elevations demonstrating that the materials and colors for the proposed garage will match the residential character of the area. The applicant has submitted revised plans showing multiple revisions to the proposed structure. The south elevation of the proposed accessory structure has been revised to include painting the exposed foundation to match the dwelling. The west elevation has been revised to include two red rock columns 30 inches in width, red rock accents on the exposed foundation wall, and horizontal lap siding. No changes are proposed for the north and east elevations. The applicant has also revised the site plan to move the proposed garage 30 feet further north on the property increasing the setback from the road from 235 feet to 265 feet. The applicant has indicated that the additional setback, the existing berm, and existing landscaping will serve to mitigate any negative impacts to adjacent properties. If the Planning Commission determines that the proposed elevations are appropriate, staff recommends that the Final Planned Development Overlay be approved with revised stipulations. The applicant has submitted a Final Planned Development Overlay to allow an over-sized garage. In particular, the applicant is proposing to construct a 59 foot by 52 foot detached accessory structure to include a garage, carport, and greenhouse. The property is developed with a single-family dwelling with an attached garage which measures 900 square feet in size. The applicant is proposing to construct a detached garage measuring 3,068 square feet in size. The existing garage and proposed expansion measure 3,968 square feet in size which exceeds the maximum allowed 1,500 square feet by 2,468 square feet. The applicant has stated that the garage will not be used for commercial purposes or as a second residence. The applicant has also submitted elevations and color swatches identifying that the garage will be constructed with vertical metal siding and a metal roof in colors that will match the existing dwelling. The applicant is proposing access to the new garage from JW Gould Memorial Drive which is an unpaved access. As such, the applicant is requesting an Exception to waive the requirement to pave the first 50 feet of the driveway located on the property.
