PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Virginia Walsh, City Planning, explained that the ordinance dealt with a 3.3 acre of land near the Woodbridge Crossing subdivision. Councilman Fairfield ask how this plan differed from the surrounding properties. She indicated that the lots were larger but the design were similar. There had been a traffic study for the project because it (the project) only involved 10 single family residents and it was not required by code. The surrounding lots on average are 75 feet but the new lots are on average 85 feet are better. Dion Walden, Public Works, explained the requirements for storm water run off/detention and why no study was done for the project . He suggested a solution that would add language to the ordinance as a fail safe allow the committee to ask for a study at a later date. John Roe, Representative for the developer, emphasized that no rezoning was required or requested for the project therefore he didn't believe that additional language was necessary. Gene Cherry, resident, expressed concern about storm water run off. He stated that it (storm water runoff) is already a problem and the addition of larger lots would make it an even bigger problem. Rebecca Fleming, Woodbridge Homes Association, shared photo's that demonstrated the storm water run off issue. Susan Fichman, Property Owner/School Director, presented letters and petition of concern to the committee's review. The committee addressed the concerns of the residents and the developer. The resident suggested a cul- de-sac and the developer prefer that solution rather than a traffic study that may delay the project or a connective road which would mean a substantial increase in project cost. The committee recommended advancement with condition.
