1.         The proposed roadway section detail for the 30-foot public right-of-way must be designed with curb and gutter in conformance with the Land Development Code, and extended northward beyond the northern most entry to the building.

 

Mr. Shah noted that he did not understand why the City was requiring a road with curb and gutter.  He noted that this was an existing building and that there was only interior remodeling being done.  He then gave a brief synopsis of what had transpired with the project up to this point.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that the use of the structure was going from an indoor recreation facility to an office building and that change required the structure to be brought up to code.

 

Mr. Shah requested that he not be required to install curb and gutter because it could cause some drainage problems.

 

Mr. Luthie explained why it was required.  He noted that it was going to be a public right-of-way that had to be maintained by the City and that it would at a minimum require Miami curbing.

 

Mr. Shaw asked if he would be able to use the Miami curbing and sheet flow the drainage to the rear.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that was correct and that the flow could be routed to an area to the rear where it could be collected.

5.         Case # 03-107.01 – Long John Silvers/A&W

                                                4351 13th Street (Lot #4, Dylan Plaza)

                                                Site Plan

 

Mr. Mark Holder was present to represent the application.

 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         This case has no effect on the building department.

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         Please revise Section AA on Sheet C-2.  The Land Development Code states that all roadways or pavement areas which will experience potential truck wheel loads must have a minimum 8-inch base material and 1 ½-inch asphaltic surface. It would appear that the roadway for the cross-access will need to have a minimum of 8-inch base.  Depending on the delivery of goods to the site it may necessitate that an 8-inch base be placed along the roadway serving the internal circulation of the site. 

2.         Please indicate the loading zone for delivery of goods to the restaurant.

3.         A SFWMD permit modification will be required for the stormwater connection to the Dylan Plaza site

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   A Certificate of Capacity approved by City Council shall be required prior to receiving a Notice to Proceed.

2.                   A Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee in the amount of $322.85 shall be paid prior to issuance of a Notice to Proceed, per Resolution 98-27R.  The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee shall be credited towards the sewer impact fee at the time of building permit.  The balance of all impact and tap fees shall be at the rate in effect at the time of building permit.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

3.                   Staff recommends approval with the above conditions.

INFORMATION:

4.                   The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee equal 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee.  For the commercial development, this is:  2,935 f of building x $1,100 ÷ 1,000 = $3228.50 x 10% = $322.85. due at the Certificate of Capacity.  Per Resolution 98-27R.

5.                   A list of all impact fees is available from the Planning & Zoning Department upon request.

 

LINES DIVISION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   A 6” sanitary sewer clean-out with a brass cap is required every 75 feet.

2.                   Change the note from “Construct 2” pvc water line” to construct 2” P.E. Tubing water line.

 

FIRE DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         Approval of this case will not cause an adverse affect on fire rescue department operations.

2.         Further conditions and recommendations will be addressed during the construction process.

 

OUC (ELECTRIC UTILITY)

CONDITIONS:

1.         The owner will install all primary conduit and the concrete transformer pad.  The secondary conduit, wire, and terminations are the responsibility of the owner.

2.         A utility easement will be required once the location of the transformer and primary run is determined.

P.O. Box 3193

            Orlando, FL  32802

  1. Once all information is obtained by Development Services an Engineer will be assigned to the job.

 

Mr. Holder noted that he had previously discussed the electrical requirements with Mr. Perri.

 

PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Need trip generation calcs.

2.                   There should be a 12-foot landscape buffer for the front parking lot. The code requires 10-foot buffer normally and allows 18-foot parking to be used when two additional feet is added to the buffer. The buffer can’t be made correct with the existing easements (sidewalk, and cross access) As such, staff will support a site variance to reduce the buffer requirement from 12 feet to 10 feet if the plantings are increased by 20%. 

3.                   Provide a sign detail elevation and wall sign elevation.

INFORMATION:

4.                   Revised plans must be submitted within sixty (60) days of this review.  Revised plans submitted after the allotted time frame will require a new application including payment of additional fees.

5.                   All submitted plans must be folded at the time of submittal.  Rolled plans will not be accepted.

 

PARKS & RECREATION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Remove the plantings shown within the required buffer, adjacent to Highway 192. The approved Dylan Plaza plans show plantings within this area.

 

Mr. Holloway explained that Parks Department did not want to see double plantings and that they would be in favor of a variance if the applicant chose to request one.

 

The issue of other sites in the same complex facing similar problems and how the problem could best be addressed was discussed.

 

Ms. Hobbs recommended that the City process it as an administrative variance that would satisfy the needs of the entire development.

 

After a brief discussion, Mr. Nearing agreed that the Planning Department would process an administrative variance request addressing the entire subdivision.

 

Plantings were briefly discussed with Mr. Nearing noting that if the variance was approved, supplemental plantings could be used but they would not be required.

 

2.                   Please change the proposed Live Oaks (Quercus virginiana) to a median size tree.

·         The chosen areas do not provide enough greenspace for this large, maturing type of tree.

·         Please do not choose an Elm (Ulmus spp.) The adjacent properties have provided a large number of these trees.

·         Recommendations: Birch (Betula nigra) and/or Magnolias (Magnolia grandiflora).

RECOMMENDATIONS:

3.                   If the variance moves forward (ref: parking spaces), the St. Cloud Parks and Recreation Department recommends additional shrubbery plantings, located within the Southeast corner greenspace.

 

Mr. Holder asked if there were plans to increase the transportation impact fee as the County had done.  He then asked if any such increase would affect this application.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that both the City of St. Cloud and the City of Kissimmee had opted to do independent studies into the transportation impact issue.  He noted that once the study had been completed, the issue would be discussed and any changes agreed upon would be put into the transportation impact fee ordinance.  He further noted that all potential applicants would be notified in advance on the date new fees went into effect and they would be given the opportunity to pay at the current rate before the new rates went into effect.

 

Page 11, DRC Minutes – 08/11/03

 

 

Ms. Hobbs noted that the project would most likely be well on its way to completion, if not complete, before any such rate hikes took place.

 

Mr. Holder asked if the staff had any idea of when such an increase might be approved.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that he did not know.

 

FINDING:

The DRC recommended approval of the site plan for Long John Silver/A&W with the conditions as stated.  The applicant will resubmit revised plans for sign-off within 60 days of this review.
