4.                   Is there a sign agreement to place the sign in the proposed location? If not the sign location needs resolved, current location in unacceptable

5.                   Need to provide a landscape plan that will address the following

a.                   The tree mitigation plan, the subject site is heavy wooded and the City will need a proposal on tree replacement with tree used on site and donation to the City to be used in parks and other public places. Refer to 8.2.3.b

b.                    Type B buffer is needed on the perimeter of the entire property. Refer to Section 8.7.3

c.                   A wall between residential and non residential use is required by section 8.7.2. however because both active uses adjacent are residential in nature (i.e. the nursing home and Bishop Grady) and because tree preservation is possible a site variance will be supported.

d.                   The use of pervious paving or turf block is recommended where existing trees are being preserved, in addition the City Arborist should be contacted to ensure work crews understand how root pruning should occur.

e.                   Create one more landscape island along the northern parking lot.

f.                     The parking stalls may be 18 feet deep with a raised curb. The half foot can become green space elsewhere The internal sidewalk is behind a raised curb?  

6.                   A sidewalk out to 5th should be provided however the available space to construct said sidewalk is constrained. The City Code does allow for sidewalks to be waived with the cost escrowed until the City Council deems the sidewalk necessary. Planning is not in favoring of the sidewalk be waived with shopping and other service being within walking distance and suggests that an easement be pursued from either party along 5th.

Mr. Taylor explained that there was a problem with space because they tried to maintain as many trees as possible.  He suggested that they make the road 3’ wider and mark it for pedestrian crossing, or use pavers, along the road.

Mr. Luthie asked if anyone has looked at the health of the trees that are being saved.

Mr. Taylor stated that the owner is a native who does not want to get rid of the trees on the property.

Mr. Luthie suggested that they be more selective in the trees they choose to keep in order to be most efficient.

Mr. Nearing instructed Mr. Taylor to contact Ms. Kim Duffy, City Arborist to schedule a walk-thru.

PARKS & RECREATION

CONDITIONS:

The following are Parks comments after initial review of the Developer’s Agreement for the Nova Rd. project, specifically the 8 +/- acres proposed for a community park:

  • There appears to be insufficient public access.  The proposed park is located at the north end of one of the residential pods.  This could cause two problems, first the nearby homes may complain that the public is driving/parking near their houses to access the park.  Second, other residents of the City may hesitate to utilize the park because they may feel like it is inaccessible, and perceive that the park is exclusively for the use of the development.
  • The land appears contiguous to a wetland, if not portions in the wetland.  Because of this, we can’t be sure that the land is even usable.
  • The proposed land is very linear, which in itself would not be a problem because current park design trends have made good use of linear spaces as parks, however, this land has a 90 degree bend in it.  This breaks up the continuity and does not lend itself to a linear park or a traditional park.  The bend “pinches” off the park into two halves really making it two different parks.  The general idea of community and neighborhood parks is to have various activities for people of all ages and family gathering places.  The bend in this park would spilt up the programming, therefore not making it very user friendly.
  • This proposed park is adjacent to other parcels of land that are not included in the new development.  Constructing new parks around existing residences can be difficult.

The best place for a park is in a highly visible area that can easily be patrolled by police and seen by all.  CPTED (crime prevention through environmental design) standards would be difficult in a park.

 

Mr. Searl stated that Mr. Hagan would have to be present for any discussion about moving the park.

 

Mr. Searl and Mr. Nearing discussed the Nova Road Annexation problems between the City and the County.
