2.         An FDOT permit will be required for the driveway connection and right turn lane along US 192/441.

3.         Structure S-6 proposes to construct a 20 foot stub out for unknown purposes.  Please clarify the intention of the proposed stub out.

 

Mr. Hindle explained that he was required under the SFWMD permit to include discharge to the pond for future development.  He further explained how the drainage for the site was being designed and the issue was discussed.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that a permit modification was going to be needed when the adjacent property was developed.  He also noted that Comment #3 from Sheet #5 of 15 could be removed as a condition.

 

4.         Please revise the location of the retention pond outfall structure and spreader swale to discharge to Long Ave. rather than the proposed location.

 

Mr. Hindle explained the problems with the cattle pens located on Long Avenue being lower than the rest of the adjacent property and that the watershed is going to be toward that property.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he was concerned over that fact that there was no spreader swale of any kind on the site.

 

Drainage for the site and the fact that future development of the adjacent parcel would need to address the issue was discussed.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that he wanted to make sure the record showed that the City of St. Cloud would not agree to provide any maintenance of Long Avenue.

 

Drainage for this site and those adjacent to the site was discussed at length.

 

Mr. Nearing addressed the issue of the parking stall depths.  He noted that all required parking would need to be striped but the areas designated as display parking would not.  He also noted that any parking adjacent to buffer areas would be required to provide wheel stops.

PLANNING

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Please submit a new APPLICATION FOR DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS and a new APPLICATION FOR CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT that correctly lists the parcel identification numbers for all property included in the site plan.  (Two id #s have been omitted.)

2.                   All parcels of land shall be unified into one parcel with one parcel identification number prior to the issuance of a Notice to Proceed.

3.                   Please correct Sheet 3 to unmark the two trees marked for removal which are not on this site and which are in the Hickory Tree Road right-of-way.  Please contact the St. Cloud Parks & Recreation Department if it is desired that these trees be removed.

4.                   Please correct SITE INFORMATION number 3 on the cover sheet - zoning is "Highway Business" and the Future Land Use is "Commercial Use."

5.                   The building square footage given under SITE INFORMATION number 5 (26,867 sf) on the cover sheet does not match the building square footage given on the APPLICATION FOR CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT (26,929 sf), which does not match the total building square footage given under NOTES on Sheet 4 (26,868 sf + 4,820 sf).  Please correct to reflect the actual building square footage.

6.                   Please correct SITE INFORMATION number 6 on the cover sheet to indicate that 10% bicycle parking is required for the Office square footage and no bicycle parking is required for the 29 bays.

7.                   Please correct or amend the SITE INFORMATION number 6 on the cover sheet to be clearer and indicate how many parking spaces are provided.  Currently it reads "Provided: 158 - 10' x 18' spaces" and "Total Spaces Provided = 116."  Staff counts 142 parking spaces and 4 handicapped parking spaces on the site plan.

8.                   Current Americans with Disabilities Act requirements are for 5 handicapped parking spaces to be provided for 101 to 150 parking spaces total.  Staff only counts 4 handicapped spaces shown on Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN.  Please correct.

9.                   Please correct Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN, detail note that indicates that there are 2 parking spaces north of the Wash/Detail Bays when in fact only 1 parking space is shown.

10.               Section 3.20.28.C.2 of the Land Development Code (LDC) requires 120 square feet of additional landscaping for every 2,000 square feet of paved display area, over and above the normal landscaping requirements.  Please provide a table on Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN that indicates: the total site area in square feet, the total square footage of impervious surface, the total square footage

of display area, and the total area required as additional landscaping.  Required buffers, landscape islands and parking row strips shall not be counted towards the "Additional Landscaping" required by Section 3.20.28.C.2.  Please indicate the "Additional Landscaping" areas by cross-hatching on Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN so that it is easily identifiable to staff.\

11.               Section 6.13.1 of the LDC requires a minimum parking stall length of 20'.  Section 3.18.3.A.1 of the LDC allows a reduction of parking stall length up to 2' if an equal amount is added to adjacent open space, landscaping or pedestrian travelways.  The 15 parking spaces along the east property line on the north side of the site; the 25 parking spaces between the east property line and the building structure near the WASH/DETAIL BAYS, and the 29 parking spaces along the north property line on the west side of the site do not qualify for the reduction in minimum parking stall length.  Please correct the plans or obtain a site variance from City Council.

12.               Please show on Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN the zoning of all adjacent property.

13.               Section 8.7.2.B of the LDC requires a 6' height block or brick wall or berm separating nonresidential uses from residential uses.  This wall or berm is thus required around all property lines of the subject

Page 5, DRC Minutes – 03/27/03

 

 

property except along Hickory Tree Road, 13th Street, and 92.64' of the west property line corresponding to adjacent property zoned Business Commercial (BC).  Some of the property along the west property line show 2' height bollards and 6' height chain link fence where wall or berm is required.  Please correct Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN or obtain a site variance from City Council.

14.               Per Section 3.20.2.C.1 of the LDC, the maximum wall height allowed in the Front Yard (that is, within 162 lineal feet of the south property line according to the placement of the building structure) is 3'.  Section 8.7.2.B of the LDC requires a 6' wall or berm separating residential and nonresidential uses.  These two regulations contradict for a 70' section of the west property line where the 6' height wall or berm is required to separate this nonresidential use from the abutting residential use but which is located in the Front Yard.  A site variance must be obtained from City Council for 8.7.2.B or a variance from the Board of Adjustment for 3.20.2.C.1.

 

Mr. Hindle noted that a hedge would be put in for now.

 

15.               Please show the buffer dimensions as required by Sections 8.7.4, 8.7.5, and 8.7.7 of the LDC on both Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN and Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN.  The required buffers are thus: Along 13th Street is 10'; along Hickory Tree Road is 10'; abutting all AC zoned property outside the City limits is 10'; and, abutting the BC zoned property inside the City limits is 5'.

16.               Please correct Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN so that the placement of trees meets the requirements of Section 8.8.7.2 of the LDC regarding landscaping adjacent to public rights-of-way for both 13th Street and Hickory Tree Road.  (One tree per 25' lineal feet.)

17.               Section 8.8.7.4(a) of the LDC requires interior landscaping equal to 10% of the parking and traffic circulation areas.  Please add a table to Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN that shows: total site area in square feet; square footage of parking area (not display area) and their adjacent travelways; the amount of required internal landscaping; and the amount of internal landscaping provided (counting landscape islands and any landscaping in excess of the minimum buffers, but not "Additional Landscaping" as is required by Section 3.20.28.C.2 of the LDC - See # 10 above.)

18.               Section 8.8.7.4(b) of the LDC requires a tree for every 50 lineal feet of interior landscaping.  Please correct Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN for the NW parking area which does not appear to have an adequate number of trees.

19.               Please correct the plans to show a minimum 4' width landscaping strip separating the abutting rows parking east of the WASH/DETAIL BAYS, as required by Section 8.8.7.4(d) of the LDC, or obtain a site variance from City Council.

20.               Please remove the parking striping from Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN in the display area (to match Sheet 4 SITE DIMENSION PLAN).

21.               Please correct the plans to relocate the Free Standing sign out of the 10' wide buffer along 13th Street.

22.               Please remove NOTE number 3 on Sheet 15 PRELIMINARY LANDSCAPE PLAN.  A landscape plan is a required part of the site plan, and is used in obtaining a building permit and Certificate of Occupancy.  Please remove the word "PRELIMINARY" from the site of Sheet 15.

23.               Please indicate on Sheet 6 WATER AND SEWER PLAN a note that indicates the number of and size of potable water meters and sanitary sewer taps for the site.

24.               "Automobile: Frame repair", "Automobile: Salvage and wrecking yard" and "Automobile: Tire recapping" are all prohibited uses within the Highway Business zoning district.

INFORMATION:

26.               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.

27.               All submitted plans must be folded at the time of submittal.  Rolled plans will not be accepted.

28.               The Long Avenue right-of-way incorporated into, and abutting, the subject property was abandoned by City Council by Ordinance ___________ on ____________?

6.                   Land Development Code Section 3.4.3.C.5.b, Factual Matters regarding Conditional Use requests heard by the Planning Board, contain six items which the Planning Board addresses in its recommendation of approval, approval with conditions or denial to City Council.  As follows is staff's position on these six matters based upon the information presented:

1)  Consistent with the general pattern of land development within the zoning district.

      "Vehicles for Hire (i.e. U-Haul, Ryder, etc.)" use is consistent with the general pattern of development of the HB zoning district and development along 13th Street.  There are numerous

businesses of this kind along 13th Street currently, some of which actually have the rental trucks and equipment visible from the roadway.

2)  Is the conditional use consistent with the trends of development in the area or neighborhood, as opposed to being detrimental to the area or neighborhood.

      Intensification of uses on the subject property as it currently exists would be detrimental to the area and neighborhood with regard to off-site visual impacts.

3)       Is the conditional use consistent with the patterns of development intensity in the area or neighborhood.

It is consistent with the pattern of development intensity in the area as many commercial uses existing along 13th Street.

4)  Does the conditional use have reasonable effect on existing traffic patterns, movements and intensities without adverse impacts.

                  The additional automobile traffic generated would not have an adverse impact on traffic patterns, movements and intensities, but the proposed location of the rental trucks (up to 26' in length) and them backing directly onto Illinois Avenue and them backing so close to an intersection with 13th Street would have an adverse impact on traffic movements and safety.

            5)  Is the conditional use consistent with the City's Comprehensive Plan.

                  The proposed conditional use, a commercial use, is consistent with the City's Comprehensive Plan.

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

                  Staff recommends additional landscaping to mitigate the negative off-site visual impacts of the existing site.  If no site improvements are required/installed, it is questionable still whether the location of the rental trucks and their backing directly onto Illinois Avenue so close to 13th Street makes the site "function effectively."  If additional landscaping is required, the applicant has not demonstrated that the improvements can be installed, still comply with the Land Development Code and still have the site "function effectively."
