Approving an amendment to a previously approved preliminary plan in District CP-3 (Regional Planned Business Center) on approximately a 17 acre tract of land generally located at the northwest corner of N.E. Vivion Road and N. Oak Trafficway. (3651-CP-7)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
A committee substitute was submitted on the ordinance. Virginia Walsh, City Planning & Development, said the ordinance involves about 17 acres located at N. Oak and NE Vivion Road. The purpose is to allow the expansion of Price Chopper's to update their store. There's some concern regarding being able to get out from the parking onto Vivion Road. Improvements will be done to the parking lot by adding landscape islands. City Plan Commission recommended that a pedestrian pathway be put into the plan. Jim Bowers, Polsinelli & White, Attorney for the supermarket, stated that the project has a parking lot that is short of the required number of spaces. Nine hundred and seventy eight parking spaces are needed. During the City Plan Commission hearing it was noted that there is a deficiency in parking spaces. The expansion and remodeling of the store is needed to revive an aging commercial center. There is no fire protection for the users of the facility. The fire protection will be upgraded by installing a water main and fire hydrants to bring the property into compliance. At CPC hearing questions was raised regarding availability of pedestrian connectors on the north side of Vivion Road and that the developer submit a final plan to the city plan commission plans for landscapting, signage and building materials and pedestrian access. Mr. Bowers request that the condition for the pedestrian access connector from Vivion Road be removed. Committee noted the recommended changes regarding the pedestrian access and recommended approval.
