The plan recommends residential use except for 40 acres located at the northeast corner of the site which is recommended for office use. The plan illustrates primarily low to moderate density residential development. Staff recommends approval, City Plan Commission recommended denial. Councilman Ford asked if there were any proposed changes from last week. Mike Burke, attorney, stated that an offer was made to the neighborhood. The neighbor's concerns center around several issues such as traffic, environment impact, density, infrastructure and quality of life. He stated previously there was offer to reduce the retail space by 50,000 square feet to increase green space. He said in doing so it would eliminate considerable monies available to do the amenities for the project. The neighborhood still wasn't satisfied with the density. Traffic issues have been addressed. A proposal has been submitted to the neighbors which they have rejected. Kathy Hauser, attorney stated that the development is out of proportion and there's not a plan for the project nor is there anything in writing representing a plan. Mr. Corbin, Landon Rowland, Chuck Matthews, SAFE (Strategic Alliance for Focused Expansion) gave a overview of why the project should not go forward. After lengthy discussion it was agreed to develop the project with a revised plan reflecting these changes: 1). commercial development will be 235,000 feet; 2). residential development not to exceed 727 units; 3). 250 fewer parking spaces from previous plan; 4). land area and open space will remain the same. Hand outs are on file in the City Clerk's Office
