INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Effective immediately, all residential and commercial developments approved (issuance of a “Notice to Proceed” shall constitute approval) after December 1, 2005 shall be assessed a “Cyber Spot Capital Expansion” charge due and payable prior to issuance of a “Notice to Proceed” for the development.  This fee shall be assessed as follows:

Per Residential Unit: $118.46

Per square foot of Commercial property: $0.0068

Please reference Resolution #2005-418R, Ordinance #2005-168, and Section 6.1.10.1 of the Land Development Code.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know how the fees are assessed.

 

Mr. Peck responded that they were based on residential units.

 

2.                   Poles with a minimum height of 25 feet and a continuous, non-switched power source will be required at no cost to the City of St. Cloud, for mounting of the radios.

3.                   In instances of decorative light poles, matching decorative poles, meeting the 25 feet height requirement and a continuous, non-switched power source, will be required for mounting of the radios, at no cost to the City of St. Cloud.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know what the radios are that are mentioned.

 

Mr. Jackson noted that they are used for the Wi-Fi, for internet access.

 

4.                   The location of these poles will be determined by the City of St. Cloud.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know when and where the location of the poles was determined.

 

Mr. Jackson noted that they are determined by site survey.  When this is completed the surveyor will tell us when and where they will need to be placed.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know when this would be done.

 

Mr. Peck indicated that would be closer to the development of the site.  This is usually done about the time the street lights are installed by OUC.  He noted that they would like to mount them on those poles and this is done during the construction process.  He also indicated that they would like to have the preliminary plans so that their department would have something to show the surveyor.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if this was something they have to initiate or if the IT department would handle that.

 

Mr. Peck indicated that they would have to get with their contractor as they progress.

 

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         The plan sheet dimensions must comply with the City of St. Cloud standard.  The dimensional standard is 24” x 36”.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if this was the max size they could use.

 

Mr. Luthie indicated that it was the max

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if they could go half sizes.

 

Mr. Luthie again noted that they could not.

 

There was discussion on the sizes between Mr. Eveland and Mr. Luthie.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if the building plans also had to be this size or if they could be smaller.

 

Mr. Trowell noted that he would prefer smaller sizes, he then questioned if these were the building plans.

 

Mr. Eveland indicated that was correct.

 

2.         Please submit the County authorization permit for the driveway connection and storm water discharge to Kissimmee Park Road. Be advised a notice to proceed for project construction will not be issued until this document is provided to the City of St. Cloud.     

3.         Please label all dimensions on the site plan (i.e. travel way widths, parking stall depth and width, and all radii).

4.         Please demonstrate how off-site drainage impacts will be addressed along the perimeter of the site.  We are most concerned along the northern property line where the building pad will be close to the property line.  Provide a typical cross-section and conveyance slopes to route the storm water runoff to the storm water management system.

5.         The only approved materials for road base construction are soil cement or limerock/coquina shell.  We are not familiar with a crushed concrete base material.  If this base is selected we will need to research and approve the material prior to construction authorization.         

 

Mr. Eveland questioned the use of crushed concrete base and if the city has ever used this before.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he has seen it used in a couple of places but not for new construction.

 

Mr. Eveland indicated that he uses it all the time and wanted to know if Mr. Luthie would like to see some samples.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he would like to and that he would like to see a report from the state.  He also indicated that crushed concrete is not in the Land Development Code.

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

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

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know who will apply for the Certificate of Capacity.

 

Ms. Witol noted that they had already filled out the application and they would just need to let her know when they were ready to take it to City Council.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if there was a time frame to use the Certificate of Capacity.

 

Ms. Witol noted that they were good for 1 year.

 

Mr. Eveland indicated to Ms. Witol that he would notify her when he was ready for her to begin the process.

 

Ms. Witol noted that would be fine to just let her know and she would make sure it got on the agenda.

 

2.                   A Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee in the amount of $11,790 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.

 

 

 

INFORMATION:

1.                   Please be advised that the Certificate of Capacity will not be moved forward to City Council for approval until such time as the applicant notifies the Planner that it is needed.  Your planner will place the item on the next available City Council agenda.

2.                   The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee equal 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee.  For the residential development, this is:  50 dwelling units x $2,358 = $117,900 x 10% = $11,790 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.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if this was something they could pick up today.

 

Ms. Witol indicated they could download that from the internet.

LINES DIVISION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Provide a 12” x 8” minimum sized wet tap w/ an 8” main extending up to the hydrant tee and place the DDCV at the tee location.

 

Mr. Eveland questioned the DDCV and the location of the tee, he wanted to know if they would have to set that back behind the tee.

 

Mr. Yallaly indicated that he would need to check with Rick Mauro since he was the one that entered the comments.

 

2.                   Remove the “Doghouse” manhole and show a typical structure with pvc couplings on the tie in of the main to the manhole.

3.                   Show the hydrant valve at the tee location.

4.                   Show an 8” x 2” saddle, corporation stop, P.E. Tubing and curb stop detail for the domestic service.

5.                   Provide a reclaimed water service for irrigation.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if reclaimed service was available for them.

 

Mr. Yallaly noted that he wasn’t sure but that he would still need to add the line.

 

Mr. Eveland then questioned if there was indeed a main that they would be able to tap into the line.

 

Mr. Yallaly again indicated that he would need to discuss this with Rick Mauro.  He also noted that if there is one available and no tap then they would need to tap it.

Mr. Eveland wanted to know when the fire department determines quantities of the combustibles.

Mr. Ennis indicated that they will be watching them and they will shut them down if they have too.  He then wanted to know if they would have a sprinkler system or stand pipes.

Mr. Eveland indicated that there would be no stand pipes.

Mr. Ennis noted that they may have to because of the rear access.

2.                   The Fire Rescue Department has concerns with access to the building; this may be resolved with the building plans.

3.         Further conditions and recommendations will be addressed during the construction process.

 

Mr. Eveland questioned the further conditions as this is a HUD project and they are on a limited budget.  That they would need to know if there were any other expenditures.

 

Mr. Ennis indicated that they would need to see the building plans before they could answer that.

Mr. Eveland indicated that to his understanding with the new construction of Kissimmee Park Road that they will be adding a sidewalk.  If they were to put one in now it would be removed and a new one added with the extention.

 

Ms. Witol noted that she didn’t know a sidewalk would be added so it was fine that they not include one.

 

Mr. Luthie indicated that they could not allow construction until they get a letter from the county because of the 4 lane divided project on Kissimmee Park Road.

 

Mr. Eveland noted that he spoke with them previous to submitting an application but that they would request new plans.

 

2.                   What is VUA 26,796 S.F.

10.               Dumpster’s are not permissible in the front yard unless the property is zoned industrial.  Please move the dumpster or apply for a variance.

 

Mr. Eveland indicated that the dumpster was shown on the Conditional Use Plan in the front yard and it was said by the back yard property owners that they would prefer it there.

 

Ms. Witol noted that they would need a variance because according to City Code you can have it in the front yard.

 

Mr. Eveland noted that it was not really the front of the building.

 

Ms. Witol indicated that they are addressed off of Kissimmee Park Road therefore that is the front of the building.

 

Mr. Eveland wanted to know if there was any administrative process they could go through and how long it would take.

 

Ms. Witol noted that it wasn’t like a Board of Adjustment variance, they would need to advertise.

 

Discussion on the process of a variance between Ms. Witol and Mr. Eveland was discussed.

PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         Please submit the County authorization letter or permit for the individual driveway connections along Orange Ave. and along 19th Street prior to issuance of the notice to proceed for construction.          

 

Mr. Kidd noted that they have contacted Osceola County regarding Orange Avenue and 19th Street and they have given them permission to use those streets for access.

 

Mr. Luthie indicated that the city would need something in writing.

 

Mr. Hughey mentioned that he spoke with Dave at the county himself and that he would get that for Mr. Luthie.  He also noted that SFWD requires a wetland so those will drain into those ditches and then we’ll back into that.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that the city wants to make sure there is a positive outfall.

 

Mr. Hughey noted that they will do research on that.

 

Mr. Luthie indicated that our clause requires a positive outfall.

 

2.         Please provide justification for not providing a positive outfall to public rights-of way for the storm water management system.

3.         We will need to receive a SFWMD permit or exemption letter prior to issuance of a notice to proceed.

 

Mr. Kidd indicated that it was just an FYI and that they will get that.

 

4.                   The plat dedication will require the HOA as responsible for the storm water management system.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that this is normal procedure for them.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

  1. We recommend the roads for this subdivision be internalized to eliminate the backing of vehicles into the existing county road system.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that the only way to avoid this was to have a dead end which would involve building an additional road.  The space would be better designed with more open space and less of an impact with the physical and interior features.

 

Mr. Hughey indicated that they feel they aren’t taking anything away from the physical features of the area and that they are keeping it consistent.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that, that would be the counties call because they would have to permit all of those driveways.

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

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

2.         No Concurrency application or fees were included.

3.                   A Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee in the amount of $3,772.80 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.

 

Ms. Witol indicated that she is still waiting for an application and fee.

Ms. Witol indicated that they have to have it before the Notice to Proceed.

 

INFORMATION:

4.                   No certificate of capacity will be moved forward to City Council since the application and fees were not included.

5.                   The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee equal 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee.  For the residential development, this is:  16 dwelling units x $2,358 = $37,728 x 10% = $3,772.80 due at the Certificate of Capacity.  Per Resolution 98-27R.

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

1.                   The Lines Division does not have any problems with approving this plat.

2.                   The sanitary sewer main is proposed by others. If the project providing the sewer does not build it within the time frame of this project, this development will be responsible for the main extension.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that they understand that the sewer is not there yet and that they are unable to build without it being there.

 

Mr. Yallaly indicated that they give Rick Mauro a call because there doesn’t show a utility easement.  That they might want to pull it on the easement in order to eliminate street cuts.

 

Mr. Kidd mentioned that they have spoke with Mr. Mauro some time ago.

 

Mr. Yallaly noted that maybe they would need to revisit him regarding this issue.

 

Mr. Hughey wanted to know if they had done anything for the Crawford revitilzation.

 

Mr. Yallaly noted that this was laid out before this and now there is a utility easement but that he may be able to save some street cuts if he pulls it over.  He then noted again that he would need to speak with Rick Mauro regarding making a service connection.

 

FIRE DEPARTMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Add a hydrant at lots 5 and 15.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that was not a problem.

5.         Once all the information is obtained by Development Services an Engineer will be assigned to the project.

 

Mr. Kidd acknowledged the information regarding OUC providing the street lights for this project.

 

Mr. Peck noted that if he was looking at that route, that perhaps he could have his Wi-Fi put in at that time.  He mentioned that this could all be done at the same time.  Mr. Peck thought that Terry’s Electric did most of OUC’s poles so he may want to contact them because they will know what is required.  He mentioned that the cost would be theirs but that they may be able to give him the best time for this to be done and they could let the IT department know where and how many poles are needed on the site to cover the whole area.

 

Mr. Kidd wanted to know how far apart the poles need to be.

 

Mr. Peck indicated that it varies depending on the height of the poles, trees and other things in the area.

 

Mr. Jackson noted that the radio company specifies that the radio be mounted at 25 feet.

PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Please revise the retention pond so that the Wetland buffer is not in the retention pond

 

Mr. Kidd indicated that the wetland line in that area was an error and that they will be correcting it and make sure that the wetland pond is out of the buffer.

 

2.                   Please submit letter from Osceola County stating that R-O-W’s are sufficient and if access as proposed is ok.

 

Ms. Witol noted that Item #2 was meant to be deleted since it was already mentioned.

 

3.                   Please submit tree survey or marked up aerial showing trees being removed and their type and size.  These trees will be required to be replaced at a rate of 2:1.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that the site is primarily pasture and the only trees on the corner are Brazilian Pepper.

 

Ms. Witol indicated that she would like a marked up aerial so that she can see what they are doing with the trees.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that at the rear of the lot there is uncertainty if the tree can be saved or not.  He indicated that it’s hard to tell with the houses being put on the site.

 

Mr. Groenendaal wanted to know if Mr. Kidd would agree to 2:1 ratio.

 

Mr. Kidd agreed to that noting that he did make note of that.

 

Ms. Witol noted that she would like to see the trees there before the building inspector.  She wants to make sure that there are 2 trees on each lot.

 

Mr. Arnold indicated that there is basically pasture on the site and all that would come back are the Wax Myrtle.  He then noted to Mr. Ron Trowell that he was aware of the caliber of trees that would need to be put on each lot.

 

Ms. Witol noted that was fine but she wants to make sure the plans say 2 trees per lot and in place on the plans before she signs off on the area.

 

Mr. Trowell indicated that the Building Department does check that there are 2 trees per lot.

 

Mr. Arnold noted that they didn’t have a problem with that.  He did want to know if they could wait until the houses are built before the trees were put in.

 

Mr. Trowell noted that they inspect before the CO (Certificate of Occupancy) is issued.

 

Ms. Witol indicated that she just wanted to make sure that it’s known before the inspectors go out that there are to be 2 trees on each lot.

 

Mr. Kidd noted that would be fine.

 

4.                   Please include landscaping plan.

 

Mr. Kidd indicated that he didn’t mind but he wasn’t sure that there would be any landscaping.

 

Ms. Witol noted that there probably wasn’t any except for the 2 trees per lot.

Mr. Kidd wanted Ms. Witol to elaborate on the new policy.

 

Ms. Witol explained the new policy discussing the submission of plans.

 

Mr. Hughey indicated that he would like to go back to the landscaping topic.  He wanted to know if they could use hardwood if it was on sale at the time.

 

Ms. Witol noted they could use whatever the LDC says regarding the type of trees they may use.
