BUILDING DEPARTMENT

INFORMATION:

1.         The building department does not have comments applicable to this case.

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         Please provide a truck path layout so we may determine if the proposed radii will be large enough to allow commercial vehicles to navigate the street system.

Mr. Hindle noted that the roads within the development would be private.

 

The inverted crown roads proposed for the development were discussed with Mr. Luthie noting that the code used to distinguish between public and private road but no longer did that.  He explained that the use of inverted crowns for any right-of-way construction requires a variance.

 

4.         A SFWMD permit will be required.          

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   The Sewer Impact Reservation Fee $21,457.80, amount equal to 10% of required sewer impact fee, is required prior to issuance of Notice to Proceed. 

2.                   The Sewer Impact Reservation Fee shall be credited towards the sewer impact fee for each residential dwelling unit at the time of building permit at the rate of $235.80 per lot.  The balance of the sewer impact fee and all other impact and tap fees are due and payable at the time of Building Permit on a lot by lot basis.

3.                   If cabana concurrency is to be included in the Certificate of Capacity, then square footage of building must be provided.  The sewer impact reservation fee will change.  Otherwise, the clubhouse shall require a concurrency application in the future.

INFORMATION:

4.                   Certificate of Capacity shall be on hold until PSP moves forward.  We shall not move the PSP forward to Planning Board until the Variances are approved by City Council.

 

Page 2, DRC Minutes – 04/21/05

 

 

5.                   If cabana is to be included on Certificate of Capacity, the square footage must be received by the date the PSP is heard by the Planning Board; otherwise cabana will require its own certificate of capacity.

6.                   The Sewer Impact Reservation Fee is calculated as 10% of the estimated sewer impact fee for the development, according to Resolution 98-27R.  The estimated sewer impact fee for the project is $2,358 per dwelling unit.  91 dwelling units x $2,358 = $214,578.00 x 10% = $21,457.80.

RECOMMENDATION:

2.                   Staff recommends approval of the request for extension of City water and sewer service outside the City, subject to DRC conditions.

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   A Certificate of Capacity approved by City Council shall be required prior to receiving City water and sewer service. In phase one 20 lots are proposed. Because this project is outside the City limits, 1/3 of the sanitary sewer impact fee for this phase of the project ($19,650.00) shall be paid prior to scheduling the Certificate of Capacity before City Council.  The balance of the sanitary sewer impact fee ($39,300.00) shall be due and payable within 90 days of the City Council approval date of the Certificate of Capacity.

2.                   The remaining phases will require Certificate of Capacity for each phase.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

v                  Does the conditional use have reasonable effect on existing traffic patterns, movements and intensities without adverse impacts?

v                  Is the conditional use consistent with the City's Comprehensive Plan?

v                  Can the conditional use development be designed to function effectively for its intended purpose without creating negative off-site impacts for adjoining parcels?

 

Mr. Eveland noted that he thought he had addressed all of these issues in the narrative.

 

Ms. Witol explained that each item needed to be specifically addressed.

 

Mr. Eveland noted that he understood and would be submitting a new narrative.
