18UR003 - Major Amendment to a Conditional Use Permit to allow a structure in the Flood Hazard District

Origination Group:
Planning Commission
Origination Meeting Date:
Dana Forman of KLJ for Connie LeZotte of Story Book Island
Staff Contact:
Vicki L. Fisher, Current Planning Manager
2900 Jackson Boulevard
Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has submitted a Major Amendment to a Conditional Use Permit to allow a structure in the Flood Hazard District. In particular, the applicant is proposing to construct a 2,500 square foot building with a 112 square foot mechanical room to house the existing antique carousel located at Storybook Island. The building will have a height of 32 feet, 8 inches, be circular in shape and consist of concrete slab-on grade, stone and siding façade to match similar park structures, asphalt shingles and natural brown tone colors. The applicant has indicated that the carousel house will provide protection of the antique carousel from inclement weather and will allow Storybook Island to use the attraction during the holiday season. It is anticipated that construction will begin in the spring of 2018 and be completed by the fall of 2018. In 2015, the Planning Commission approved a Conditional Use Permit to allow the carousel to be located in the Flood Hazard District. Since a portion of the property is located in the 100 year federally designated floodplain, a Floodplain Development Permit was required for the carousel. In addition, a new Floodplain Development Permit will be required for the carousel house and mechanical room.
