Both Roanoke Road and Clark Avenue provide connections to the north and south. Due to the nearby connectivity this vacation is not anticipated to have a major effect on the surrounding area.

Rezoning approximately 0.33 acre generally located at 629-631 W. 39th Street from District B3-2 to District UR and approving a development plan for 45 multi-family residential units. (14872-UR)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Patty Noll, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The plan proposes to raze all existing improvements located on the site, including the car wash, pole sign, and outdoor advertising sign. Development includes a 45 unit, five-story multi-family structure. Total height is 57 ft. at the south property line, adjacent to residential zoning and land use to the south. While the structure is set back ten ft. from the southern property line, parking extends to that line. The lobby is located on the ground level, with pedestrian access from W. 39th Street. The footprint of the building is indented in the center of the side and rear elevations, resulting in a portion of the parking spaces along those property lines being exposed. Four levels of residential units are then located above the ground level. Access to the development is via a garage entry off W. 39th Street near. Ingress and egress lanes have been consolidated. This is an improvement to the original plan, which separated those lanes on the east and west sides of the W. 39th Street elevation. The revision reduces the amount of frontage utilized for vehicular purposes and thereby improves walkability on the street.

Accepting and approving the recommendations of the Tax Increment Financing Commission as to the termination of the 45th Street Tax Increment Financing Plan, Redevelopment Area and Project; directing the City Clerk to send notice to Jackson County.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Heather Brown, TIF Commission, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The Redevelopment Plan proposed to redevelop the Holiday Inn Hotel at 45th Street and Main Street.

The total cost to the Redeveloper to implement Project 1 was projected to be approximately $225,919,426. The Plan proposed that approximately $68,948,699 in Redevelopment Project Costs be reimbursable from Payments in-Lieu-of-Taxes and Economic Activity Taxes generated by Project 1. Based on those projections, approximately 30.5% of the total Redevelopment Project Costs were to be reimbursed through TIF. The Redeveloper planned to finance $156,970,727.

Amending Chapter 72, Code of Ordinances, entitled “Travel Trailers and Mobile Homes”, to revise terminology, permit requirements and other sections as necessary so as to remove the requirement for an annual permit. (254-S-331)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Patty Noll, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. Chapter 72 is administered by the Development Compliance Branch of City Planning & Development Department, Development Management Division. The chapter applies to mobile home developments and travel trailer camps. There are eight mobile home developments within the city, many of which have sites for travel trailers (more recently referred to as recreational vehicles). It should be noted that a new mobile home development, or expansion of an existing development, would be processed under the Master Planned Development (MPD) procedures of Chapter 88. Revisions to Chapter 72 largely involve deletion of the requirement to obtain an annual permit. Staff has observed over the years that the permitting process -- which involves sending annual letters, receiving funds for permits, issuing permits, and tracking all permits – has simply become an administrative activity. Due to minimal staffing, no on-site inspections have been made for several years. Further, staff has observed that the permitting process has failed to achieve any safety results and merely tracks the number of mobile home spaces within the city. Receipts of permit fees ($3 for an existing space and $6 for a new space in an approved mobile home development) have not covered costs incurred to maintain the program. Although the requirement to obtain an annual permit would be removed, regulations remain, and the city retains the ability to inspect for health and sanitation purposes.

PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
