4.         Case # 04-35.01 – Eileen’s Adult Day Care, LLC

                                                1620 Montana Avenue                                       

Conditional Use

 

Eileen Blackmon and Ms. Janice Presby were present to represent the application.

 

Ms. Blackmon noted that she was surprised by how costly everything was and she had not expected that.

 

Ms. Presby asked if there were any modifications that could be made regarding the storm water retention area, parking area and sidewalks.  She asked why mulch or rock couldn’t be used for the parking area and why the sidewalks couldn’t be omitted since they wouldn’t connect to anything.  She also noted that she thought the 10’ X 20’ parking stall requirements were extreme.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that these were minimum standards designated by the codes.  He also explained that the code required all off street parking to be pave.  He noted that the applicant could request a variance but advised that the City Attorney had already advised the City Council that granting such a variance was would be ill advised.  He went on to explain that a variance to modify the parking stall length might be possible but an overall waiver of the requirement was most likely not going to happen.  As for the sidewalks, Mr. Nearing noted that staff had already determined that installation along 17th Street would probably not be a good idea and could support a variance.

 

Mr. Luthie explained that a variance to the sidewalk installation would mean that the cost of that installation would have to be placed in a fund in lieu of the installation so from a cost standpoint there would be no benefit to the applicant.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that when converting from a residential use to a commercial use these were things that there was very little latitude over.

 

The issue of parking stall depth was discussed further.

 

Addressing the issue of storm water retention, Mr. Luthie explained that the site may be able to go very shallow with a small dry retention area.  He went on to explain how the drainage and retention would need to work.

 

Ms. Presby asked if the case moves forward and is approved but the applicant can not afford to make the improvements required, if the property could continue to be rented as a residential property until another buyer could be found.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that once a conditional use is approved, the applicant would have twelve months to make the required improvements.  He noted that if no improvements were made in that twelve months, the property would revert back to residential.  He also noted that it was possible to request an extension of the time frame if needed.

 

Ms. Presby asked if the money required for the sidewalk variance could be paid over time.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that it would need to be paid in one lump sum.

 

Ms. Blackmon asked about payment of the impact fees.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that the applicant would pay the difference between the residence and the commercial use.  He noted that the addition of bathrooms would require assessment of additional impact fees.

 

Mr. Nearing asked Ms. Witol if there had been any numbers put together yet and Ms. Witol noted that she had not yet done that.

 

Mr. Groenendaal explained that it would probably be the same as a child daycare facility.

 

Mr. Luthie advised the applicant that there was currently a study underway that would increase the cost of the traffic impact fees but he could not say by how much or when that increase would happen.

Page 8, DRC Minutes 2/12/04

 

 

Mr. Swingle explained that the same thing could be happening with water and sewer impacts.

 

Ms. Presby asked if there would be some kind of “grace period” and Mr. Nearing explained that would depend on how the City Council chooses to put it into effect.

 

Ms. Blackmon asked how much would need to go to the City for the side walks.

 

Mr. Luthie explained that it normally costs around $8 per linear foot but it would be the responsibility of the engineer to provide certified cost estimates.

 

The issue of sidewalks was further discussed with Mr. Nearing explaining that every commercial project that comes through the City is required to provide sidewalks or to put money up in lieu of their installation.

 

Ms. Presby asked if staff was saying that the project could not continue without an engineer.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that was correct and advised that Mr. Luthie could not design the site.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that a contractor could not design the site either and explained that it would need to be a licensed engineer.

3.                   We will need a sidewalk along all right-of-way frontages in accordance with the L.D.C.

4.                   A stormwater retention area will be required to compensate for the added impervious area.

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

INFORMATION:

1.                   A Certificate of Capacity approved by the City Council shall be required prior to receiving a Notice to proceed (with construction) and City water and sewer service.

Page 9, DRC Minutes – 02/12/04

 

 

·    No backing into the Right-of-way from the site will be allowed.

·    A sidewalk along 17th street 5’ in width, setback 2’ from the property line is required.  However, the City plans on working on 17th Street and the sidewalk will be ruined.  Staff would support a variance to place the money in an escrow account for the City to build the sidewalk later. 

·    Please include a sidewalk along Montana Ave 4’ in width, setback 1’ from the property line.  Applicant may wish to discuss a variance.

·    Driveways shall be a minimum of 24’ in width

                                                Kissimmee Park Road & Commerce Center Drive

                                                Revisions to approved site plan

 

Mr. Walt Smith and Mr. Jim Eurick were present to represent the application.

 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         No comments at this time.

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         A SFWMD Permit will be required prior to a “Notice to Proceed” for the project.

2.         The joint use stormwater pond will need legal agreements between the proposed and future tracts.

3.         The location of the double dumpster will need to be adjusted to the west to allow the collection truck a         straight entry to the enclosures.

4.                   The proposed pavement section will need to be increased in thickness where the Solid Waste vehicles travel on site.  The Land Development Code requires a minimum 8-inch base for non-automobile traffic loads.   Automobile parking areas may be reduced to 6-inches in thickness.

 

Mr. Smith explained that there would only be the vans and small vehicles used to fill the vending machines that would be using that area.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he understood but that if the property were sold for an alternate use in the future someone else could have a problem utilizing the site.  He also explained that it was an issue of the ML – if every sold…someone else…trash trucks…parking areas do not have to include that.

 

Mr. Smith asked if the code superceded the geotech report findings.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that the code specifically states that if there is to be “non-automobile” traffic, the thickness must be 8-inches.

 

Mr. Smith asked if it made a difference that it was private and Mr. Luthie explained that the code did not distinguish between public and private on that particular issue.

 

5.         The driveway which is centered on the phase line will need to be shifted to the east and aligned with the       phase one interior travel lanes.

 

Mr. Smith noted that the owners would like to keep that layout and control traffic by way of stop signs.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he would be open to different design alternatives but could not give a definitive answer without looking at the actual plans.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that he had seen similar designs on project and it does not work.  He noted that Planning would be adamantly opposed to that proposal.

 

LINES DIVISION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Remove the 8” x 8” tee w/reducer and change to an 8” x 1-1/2” saddle.

2.                   Replace the City of St. Cloud Standard Detail Sheets with the current version dated 01-22-04.

PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

1.         Both property owners need to be applicants on this site plan if the retention pond is to straddle the properties.

2.                   Both Property owners need to record cross access easements and drainage easements.

3.                   The current driveway curb needs to shift to align with driveways.

4.                   The landscaping in the island does not need to be doubled so the landscape can be on the line. The repositioning of the island may negate this comment.

 

Mr. Nearing noted that any maintenance agreements must include the pond and access.

 

Mr. Smith asked if shifting of the site caused the loss of parking on one side but increased it on the other, there could be a cross parking agreement provided to make the parking work.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that it would require approval from Planning.

 

The options and alternatives to allow shifting of the driveway were discussed.

 

INFORMATION:

1.                   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.

There was no discussion of the variance requested.

 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         No comments

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         Item #3 of the variance request proposes a reduction in the right-of-way width from 50-feet to 40-feet.            We do not support a reduction since no hardship has been provided.  Furthermore, the referenced 10-  foot utility easement is designed to accommodate telephone, cable, and electric utilities.

 

LINES DIVISION

CONDITIONS:

1.         The Line Systems Division does not support the request from a 50 foot right-of-way to a proposed 40 foot right-of-way. The 10 foot utility easement is for electric, telephone and cable TV. There would not be enough room to accommodate the water, sewer, reclaimed water and storm utilities.

3.                   Recommended approval of the variance to eliminate the wall along the east boundary of the northern parcel if additional landscaping is added.

4.                   Public Works has recommended denial for the variance to the right-of-way.  Therefore, it is the applicant’s responsibility to submit justification for the three criteria that must be demonstrated in a variance request as outlined in Section 5.4.1.a.   These criteria are:

·  That special conditions and circumstances exist which are peculiar to the land, structures, or required subdivision improvements involved and which are not applicable to other lands, structures, or required subdivision improvements;

·  That a literal interpretation of the provisions of these regulations would deprive the applicant of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties with similar conditions;

·  That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.

5.                   It will be the applicant’s responsibility to represent this criteria to the Planning Board and City Council.

8.         Case #4-37.02 – Heritage Place

SE Corner of Michigan & David

Preliminary Subdivision/Plat

 

Mr. Jim Eurick was present to represent the application.

 

Mr. Eurick noted that he had not prepared the plans but would answer any questions he could for staff.

 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         No comments

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

PLAT -

1.         The dedication of public right-of-way has not been placed on the plat. 

 

Mr. Luthie noted that it just needed to be labeled as right-of-way and Mr. Eurick noted that it would be corrected.

           

2.         The developer proposes a drainage and utility easement along all side lot lines within the subdivision.           The City of St. Cloud does not want encumbrances across the properties unless it is necessary for the             design of the project.  Therefore, we recommend all side lot line easements be removed.  In addition         any rear easements shown on the plat which are not necessary need to be removed as well.

 

After discussion, Mr. Eurick noted that he would remove the easements from the plat.

 

Construction Plans -

1.                   The master grading plan on Sheet #4 of 14 must address the rear lot drainage which abuts adjacent property.  The master grading shall provide a mechanism for run-off to be routed to the storm water management pond.

 

The issue of drainage was discussed with Mr. Eurick noting that the site had been looked at before development and there would be less shedding after development because of the pond.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he would prefer to have a conveyance swale provided.

 

Mr. Eurick noted that he would work it out.

 

2.                   Until we have reviewed the geotechnical report for the site, under drains are required.

 

Mr. Eurick noted that it had been included in the plan but he would provide Civil Engineering with a separate copy.

 

Mr. Luthie asked if he was correct in his understanding that underdrains were not needed and Mr. Eurick noted that was correct.

 

3.                   A driveway connection permit at Michigan Avenue will need to be obtained through Osceola County.

4.                   It appears that the cul-de-sac radius is 48-feet to the outside of the Miami curb.  The City requires a minimum of 50-feet to the backside of the Miami curb.  Also a three foot sod separation between the backside of the Miami curb and the beginning of the 4-foot sidewalk shall be maintained.

5.                   Please indicate the typical lot grading for each lot.  It appears that a Type “A” grading will be utilized but it needs to be indicated on the plan.

6.                   A sidewalk will need to be installed along Delaware Avenue or the applicant may seek a variance to the installation and place equivalent funding in the City’s sidewalk escrow account.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that this was a typo and the comment should reflect David and not Delaware.

 

Mr. Eurick noted that the applicant would probably request a variance to the sidewalk installation.

Page 15, DRC Minutes – 02/24/04

 

 

Mr. Luthie noted that staff would support a variance to the sidewalk installation.

 

7.                   We recommend the open drainage way adjacent to the project along Delaware Avenue be closed with a culvert to eliminate the open drainage way.

 

Mr. Luthie again noted that this was a typo and the comment should reflect David rather than Delaware.

 

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 $4,716.00 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.

3.                   The well and septic tank are to be abandoned properly.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1.                   Staff recommends approval with the above conditions.

INFORMATION:

2.                   The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee equal 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee.  20 dwelling units x $2,358 = $47,160 x 10% = $4,716.00 due at the Certificate of Capacity.  Per Resolution 98-27R.

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

4.                   The demolition of the home on site will result in impact fee credits

 

Mr. Eurick noted that septic systems would be utilized rather than the City’s sanitary sewer system.

 

Mr. Groenendaal noted that since septic systems were to be installed, no Certificate of Capacity would be required.
