3.         Case #4-46.04 – Academy For Kids

                                                2375 Canoe Creek Road

                                                Site Plan

 

Mr. Jim Urick, Mr. Darol Watson, Mrs. Karren Watson were present to represent the application.

 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.         At least one accessible route (special emphasis crosswalk) shall be provided from public transportation stops, public streets or sidewalks to the accessible building entrance per section 11-4.3.2 (1) of the Florida Building Code 2001 (Handicap Accessibility Code)

 

PUBLIC WORKS

INFORMATION:

1.         The proposed access to the project at Fertic Road will need approval from Osceola County.

 

Mr. Urick noted that the approval was in process with Osceola County at this time.

 

Page 3, DRC Minutes – 09/09/04

 

 

2.                   The proposed driveway serving the parking area is not going to be adequate for utilizing the parking spaces due to the limited room in maneuvering when entering or backing out of the parking space.  We recommend this driveway be a minimum of 24’ in width to provide for adequate turning movements.  The dumpster location as presently shown will be very difficult to serve with large commercial refuse trucks due to the tight radius of the driveway and the narrowness of the driveway.  Furthermore, the covered area for the drop off for children will prevent commercial refuse collection vehicles from accessing the dumpster.

 

Mr. Urick noted that he would show it on the plan as being widened to twenty-four (24) feet.

 

3.                   The proposed drainage connection to the Fertic right-of-way will need approval from Osceola County

4.                   A sidewalk should be constructed adjacent to Canoe Creek Road.  Please contact Osceola County regarding the permitting of the sidewalk.  If it’s determined that a sidewalk is not necessary, the City will require monies to be placed into the City’s sidewalk escrow fund for future use to improve sidewalk systems within the City.      

 

Mr. Urick noted that the County had not made this a requirement and that he would be applying for a variance.

 

Mr. Luthie asked if this was a County right-of-way, how the City could grant a variance.

 

Mr. Nearing explained that if the County said the sidewalk wasn’t required, no variance would be needed.

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

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

2.                   A Capacity Reservation Fee of $554.4 equal to 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee per Resolution 98-27R shall be required prior to receiving a Notice to Proceed.  This amount shall be credited towards the final sewer impact fee calculated at the time of Building Permit based upon architectural plans.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

3.                   Staff recommends approval of a Certificate of Capacity with the above conditions.

INFORMATION:

4.                   Estimated Sanitary Sewer Impact Fee, per Resolution 98-27R, equals $1,100 per 1,000 square feet of commercial use building ÷ 1,000.  Or, $1,100 x 5040 sf of bank building ÷ 1,000 = $5,544.  The Capacity Reservation Fee equals 10% of the Estimated Sanitary Sewer Impact Fee, or 10% of 5,5440= $554.40.

 

LINES DIVISION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Original discussions with the City of St. Cloud were to provide a 15” minimum easement across the frontage along Fertic Road for a future 8” water main looping extension. However, with this design there is not adequate room for an easement. Therefore, an 8” water main will need to be extended along the frontage of Fertic Road under the sidewalk area. The applicant / engineer will need to discuss a cost sharing agreement with the city for this extension.

 

Mr. Jim Urick noted that there was currently a County right-of-way easement of ten’ (10’) feet and he would be adding an additional five feet (5’).  He further noted that the sidewalk had been placed at the future right-of-way line.  He suggested the possibility of escrowing the sidewalk until all the lines had been installed.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that it would be treated the same as the other right-of-way.

 

2.                   The septic system will not be allowed and connection shall be made to the sanitary sewer system. A 12” gravity sanitary sewer main will be required to be extended along the Canoe Creek Road frontage. The applicant / engineer will need to discuss with the city a cost sharing agreement for the extension to this site. 

 

Mr. Urick asked if the City would prefer to see the site utilize a septic system or small package plant.

 

Page 4, DRC Minutes – 09/09/04

 

 

Mr. Mauro explained that there had recently been some development to the South of this property and that the City might be willing to pay a portion of the cost.  He recommended that Mr. Urick speak with Todd Swingle about it.

 

Mr. Urick noted that he was going to need an answer as soon as possible because of the October deadline.  He noted that the impact fees for a daycare were going to increase drastically and would force the applicants to drop the project all together.

 

Mr. Nearing recommended that the project be approved with a septic system with an agreement that connection to the City’s sewer be worked out at a later date.

 

The proposed Impact fee increases were discussed.
