RESOLUTION - Amending the Briarcliff-Winnwood Area Plan for an approximately 23 acre tract of land, generally located at the southwest corner of N. Brighton Ave and N.E. Pleasant Valley Road by changing the recommended land use from Mixed Use Neighborhood and Residential Low-Density to Mixed-Use Neighborhood. (673-S-4)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "BE ADOPTED"
City Planning and Development gave the staff report on the Resolution. The applicant is proposing approval of a rezoning of the entire 23-acre property to MPD (Master Planned Development) and approval of a preliminary development plan for an 85,870 sq ft commercial development and a 210-unit multi-family residential development. The commercial portion is located on the eastern 11 acres and is similar in land area, building floor area, and layout to the existing approved preliminary development plan (Case 10053-CP-4) approved in 1991. The residential portion is located on the western 12 acres of the property. Though there was no previous plan approval of this portion of the property, there was once proposed a multi-family residential development for this portion of the property (Case 10053-CP-3) which proposed 168 units on 8.5 acres. Staff did not support either the commercial or residential development at the time they were proposed. In the case of the commercial development this was due to the commercial development’s intensity exceeding that of a neighborhood shopping center. In the case of the residential portion staff’s concern was the density (22 units per acre). Staff recommended denial of the commercial portion; however it was ultimately approved by both City Plan Commission and City Council. Staff recommended continuance of the residential portion to allow the developer to revise plans and reduce density, which was granted, but the developer never proceeded and eventually the residential portion was dismissed by the City Plan Commission.
