Mr. Lane requested a clarification of this comment from Mr. Luthie.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that his concern was with the portion that abuts the carnival set up area.  He explained that he was concerned with vehicles driving across the bike path rather than using the driveway.  He noted that he wanted the Chamber to make sure they used the boat basin access rather than driving the semis across the bike bath.

 

Mr. Lane noted that he would advise them and explained that there would not be as many vendors as there had been in the past.

 

 

 

Page 2, DRC Minutes – 06/19/03

 

 

The issue of access by the large trucks was discussed with Mr. Luthie noting that the chamber needed to provide something that would give a visual as to the correct location to enter.  He noted that the bike bath had recently been overlaid and he didn’t’ want it destroyed.

 

LINES DIVISION

INFORMATION:

1.         No comment.

 

FIRE DEPARTMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.         The fire rescue department will require a pre-launch inspection, standby during the launch, and a post-launch inspection for the fireworks display. Fire apparatus shall have access to launch area.

2.         Fire rescue department requests an area be designated as a first aid station located in the shade.  First- aid station to be attended by the fire rescue department. The First-aid station will require water and electric located on the north side of the sidewalk.

3.         The fire rescue department has been requested by the applicant to provide Lake Patrol during the fire works display.  We will provide one boat in the water for this purpose.  If the number of spectator boats reaches an uncontrollable level, we will remove our boat from the area since the fire rescue department has no jurisdiction or enforcement powers on the lake.

 

Mr. Lane explained that the Lake Patrol would be patrolling during the fire works display.

 

Mr. Ennis noted that the St. Cloud Fire Department did not have jurisdiction over the lake and that would need to be taken care of by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department.

 

Mr. Lane noted that the Sheriff’s Department had said they intended to leave if the area got too crowded.

 

Mr. Ennis noted that his department would be there as long as things were orderly but if there were problems they would withdraw.

 

Mr. Ennis noted that the Fire Department set up area was shown on the south side of the sidewalk and that they needed to be on the north side.  He also noted that he was going to need a time schedule of the planned events.

 

Mr. Lane noted that the activities would begin at 10:00 A.M.

 

Mr. Ennis explained that the Chamber could provide him with the schedule and he would go from there with his planning.

 

The issue of how the box truck was going to access the fireworks area was discussed at length with Mr. Luthie noting that it was going to be a problem.

 

Mr. Ennis noted that he didn’t think he could access the area with his fire truck either.  He noted that he wanted the record to reflect that he had advised everyone that if something catches fire it would just have to burn because he couldn’t access that area.

 

The possible use of some type of storage container for the fireworks was discussed.

 

Ms. Duffy noted that she would advise Kristen of the problem and have her meet with the applicants to come up with a solution.

 

Ms. Duffy noted that Parks & Recreation still had the City’s old water truck.

 

Mr. Ennis explained that he wasn’t worried about the water, he was worried about access to the area.

 

Mr. Luthie noted that fencing, the beer garden, and the people would have to be relocated to provide a path for access.

 

Page 3, DRC Minutes – 06/19/03

 

 

Mr. Lane noted that he would have to do a map and work something out.  He noted that it was much more complicated than just providing a 12’ path.

 

Ms. Duffy noted that Parks & Recreation would work with the Chamber as long as they were given direction.  She noted that Linda Taylor would be contacting the Chamber to set up an appointment for them to come in and discuss the issues.

 

4.         All fire protection equipment; building exits and other safety features shall remain accessible.

Ms. Duffy noted that there would be Parks & Recreation staff present at the point as well.

 

4.                   Beer Garden will require persons at all access points to control beverages leaving fenced area. Open container violations will be enforced without verbal warning. Please post appropriate signage prohibiting containers outside Beer Garden.

INFORMATION:

5.         Police Department does not agree with postponing fireworks launch until 10:00 PM. Controlling alcoholic beverage violations and personal fireworks launching becomes more difficult with passing time, increasing risk to spectators.

 

Major Faucett explained that he could not support waiting until 10:00 P.M. for the fireworks.

 

Mr. Lane asked if it would be OK to do start the fireworks at 9:30 instead.

 

Major Faucett noted that the display had always started at 9:00 P.M. and he didn’t understand why it needed to be different this year.

 

Mr. Lane noted that it was because of the bands that wanted to play this year.

 

Major Faucett noted that he would say no but he would prefer they begin at 9:00 P.M.

 

Mr. Lane noted that he would agree to the 9:00 P.M. if it was understood that it could be pushed to 9:30 if needed.

·         The tree cluster holds 1-24” and 1-40” multi-trunk Laurel Oaks (Quercus laurifolia). The remaining trees are invasive species.

·         The survey does not show 1-8” Live Oak (Quercus virginiana), (located northwest corner of the site) and 1’-10” multi-trunk Ligustrum tree (Ligustrum japonicum), (located to the south of the existing building).

The SCPR approves of the proposed removal of these trees. However, this site plan shall have an amount of ten (10) replacement trees (5 trees replaced at a two-to-one ratio). Please revise.

2.                   Please change the proposed Live Oak (Quercus virginiana), located at the northwest corner, to an ornamental type of tree. Overhead utilities exist. Please revise.

INFORMATION:

3.                   This site has two (2) existing Camphors (Cinnamomum camphora), located upon City properties, shown adjacent to 14th Street. This site wishes to save the trees; therefore, the Arborist started to submit a work order for the SCPR to raise the canopy of each tree, prior to construction and/or tree barriers. It was recognized that these trees hold a large amount of Butterfly Orchids (Encyclia tampensis), protected by the State of Florida.

PLANNING

CONDITION:

1.                   The tenant / owner understands he is living in a Commercial zoning district and may have noises, odors, etc. Not permitted in a residential zoning district.

2.                   The residences shall not be converted to a commercial use without site plan approval.

3.                   Receive site plan approval from Development Review Committee (DRC) within one year (365 days) of the date of City Council’s approval of the conditional use.  The conditional use approval shall expire and become null and void if the site plan for this request is not approved by the DRC within the time allotted for whatever reason.

RECOMMENDATION:

4.                   Staff recommends approval of the request for an "Apartment Residence in the Highway Business District

INFORMATION:

5.                   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.

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

7.                   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.

      "A mixed use of a commercial office and a residence” is an ideal transitional use between the more intense commercial uses and the residential community.  The general pattern in the Highway Business has been to develop and redevelop the lots with exposure to 13th Street. Those lots without exposure on 13th Street have been slower to redevelop from residences and have been conversions of residences. Based on these two observations its staff position that this project is consistent with the general patterns.

Page 8, DRC Minutes – 06/19/03

 

 

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.

      The requested conditional use will allow a residence as part of a mixed-use development The area to the south of the subject property is residential and therefore the requested conditional use is compatible with the properties to he south. The properties to the west, east and north are zoned (HB) Highway Business. The property to the west, east and north are all being used commercially, the proposed mixed use is less consistent with what has developed. The staff’s position on this practice is that these mixed uses should be primarily commercial in nature and residential dwelling(s) is secondary. Therefore the applicant and ultimately his tenant in the dwelling space must understands that they will not be protected from the negative externalities that occur in a commercial district at the same level as a residential zoned property. Currently the surrounding commercial uses are benign and no perceived issues are anticipated.

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

The property to the west is a two-story office/retail use and is of a similar density with regard to Floor Area Ratio. The surrounding residential uses are mainly single family in nature with one unit on a 1/4 to 1/3 acre. The proposed development has a similar density with one unit on a 1/3 acre. The intensity/density is similar to what has previously developed.

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

                  The mixed use will not affect the traffic patterns in the area. In fact, the new site plan indicates a new parking lot will be created; it will eliminate the need for backing into the roadway as it may occur now. 

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

                  Goal 2 of the Comprehensive Plan on page I-33 states “…The City shall seek to encourage the livability and character of St. Cloud through the encouragement of innovative land development techniques and an attractive and functional mix of residential, commercial, educational, cultural and recreational land uses…”

The Comprehensive Plan Policy 2.3.2 on page I-34 identifies mixed land use designations as a tool to encourage redevelopment in blighted areas. While this area of the City has not been classified as blighted it may still be a proper tool for the city to use to encourage redevelopment in particular where the commercial land use abuts the residential land use. The Comprehensive Plan supports this practice when it discusses the Commercial Land Use Needs on page I-12 where it states, “…Transitional uses, such as office, residential (medium to high density) and institutional, should be encouraged to separate intense commercial areas…”

                  The staff’s position is that the Comprehensive Plan loosely supports mixed uses of commercial and residential in transition areas. No goals, policies or objectives were found to discourage or prohibit this practice.

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 does not anticipate any negative off –site impacts from this single-family apartment. The staff will be examining buffering requirements of Land Development Code to mitigate the negative off-site visual impacts of the commercial use but no additional conditions are warranted.

PARKS & RECREATION

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Sheet 2 of 14 shows an existing 12” Oak, located south of the site, adjacent a proposed driveway. This existing tree is a Shumard Red Oak (Quercus shumardii). Evaluated as mint condition, a specimen, and a wonderful asset for our City. Therefore, proposing a driveway within five (5’) of the base of this Oak will cause future problems. The St. Cloud Parks & Recreation Department denies approval of this driveway and requires it to be shifted further west, in accordance with Ordinance 2001-51, Section 51-20. Please revise.

Mr. Urick noted that he would like to shift the drive 10 feet.

 

Ms. Duffy noted that it should work with some possible minor adjustments in the field.

 

2.                   Survey sheet 2 of 14 does not show three (3) existing multi-trunk Crape Myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica), located in-between proposed driveways (all existing trees are located upon the rights-of-way).  In accordance with Ordinance #2001-51, Section 51-21, all trees located on public areas shall be protected with tree barriers. Each tree barrier shall be in accordance with the City of St. Cloud Land Development Code (LDC), Article VIII, Section 8.3.2 If these Crape Myrtles cause an impact to the proposed driveway, the St. Cloud Parks & Recreation Department requires one of two proposals.

A)                  Relocate and properly maintain (until established)  the trees, upon another section of the public rights-of-way; or,

B)                  Remove and replace them with a one-for-one ratio, upon another section of the public rights-of-way.
