Z 15-07 Zoning Ordinance Change (Final PSD Development Plan Approval)
Mr. Roth addressed the Commission, requesting approval for the final PSD development plan for the Arbors at Churchill subdivision. Mr. Roth described the proposed development and noted that the significant change in the plan is the addition of a 4-5’ retaining wall. This is due to a change that was made in grading in order to preserve mature trees on the site. Side-entry garages were added to lots 1 and 4. The sidewalk was eliminated at the direction of the Board of Aldermen. Ellington Homes by McBride will pay a fee to the City’s sidewalk fund in lieu of building the sidewalk.
Acting Chairman Karr asked if the petitioner will take steps to ensure that the homes to be built will not all look alike. Mr. Roth confirmed that the petitioner committed to not building the same elevation side-by-side and varying the colors of the masonry and siding.
Commissioner Goetz asked about the materials to be used for the retaining walls. Mr. Roth said it would be Versa-Lok blocks.
Acting Chairman Karr asked when the petitioner proposes to start construction. Mr. Roth said they would like to break ground this fall. Commissioner Zimmerman asked if there will be a homeowner’s association. Mr. Roth said a new homeowner’s association will be created for the subdivision.
Mayor Pogue made a motion to recommend approval of Petition Z 15-07 to the Board of Aldermen. Com-missioner Wright seconded the motion, which received unanimous approval from the commission members present.
Acting Chairman Karr asked City Planner Aiken if there are items for the August agenda. Mr. Aiken said there are no agenda items, and the meeting will be canceled.
Commissioner Goetz moved to adjourn the meeting. Alderman Stallmann seconded the motion, which re-ceived unanimous approval from the commission members present. The meeting was adjourned at 7:13 p.m.
