CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT                                     

MARTY HOBBS 407-957-7285

INFORMATION:

1.   The proposed parking lot plan does not affect water meter size or create an increase in structure square footage. No additional water, sewer or transportation impact fees are applicable for the parking lot construction.

2.    Please note that the referenced irrigation system will require separate permitting through the Public Services Department.

3.    Additional information added on October 25, 2012 ? This information is related to the increase in square footage of the "gym" and not the proposed parking lot increase.  The following is information concerns an impact fee assessment related to the combining the two existing units.

4.    During the pre-application meeting the owner was advised that expansion of the facility into an adjoining unit would require assessment of transportation impact fees.  At that time the owner was advised to contact Marty Hobbs in the Public Services Department with information regarding the total square footage of the expansion as well as what portions of that square footage was going to be utilized as office space.  That information is needed in order to provide an estimate of the transportation impact fees and any related credits for the existing use.  As of this date that information has not been received

5.    Concurrency Management strongly recommends that an impact fee estimate be obtained by the applicant prior to any forward motion in construction of the proposed parking lot.

 

Mr. Stangle acknowledged the information and will provide a note on the plans stating that the irrigation system requires a separate permit. For the record, Ms. Hobbs stated that during the pre-application meeting with Mr. Allen it was discussed that he would submit the square footage of the building so Ms. Hobbs can do an estimate on transportation impact fees. Staff also suggested that Mr. Allen submit a Change of Use application for review.
