Patty Noll, City Development stated ordinances 980351, 980353 and 980354 are companion cases. Ordinance 980353 deals with approximately 15 acres. The request is to approve a preliminary development plan to allow construction of 128 units. City Plan Commission recommended approval of the ordinances with revisions. The units are to be constructed with a minimum of 15 feet apart with the exception of units along the cul-de-sacs are to be 13 feet apart. The developer requested a full median cut on NW Barry Road. Staff recommended denial because there is a median cut along Line Creek Parkway & Barry Rd. Staff recommended a right turn in and right turn out only. Therefore staff urged the developer to provide access thru another piece of property to Line Creek Parkway. The developer will pay money in lieu of parkland for 128 units with funds to be used to enhance Line Creek Parkway. Patty Noll also gave an overview of ordinance 980354. She stated the ordinance will rezone 42 acres to construct 152 detached single family patio homes. One of the concerns with the project is that residents of Barry Heights fear that traffic will increase in their subdivision, by residents of the proposed development and other neighborhoods to the west traveling to the school. David Matthews, Lutjen & Associates, concurs with the recommendations of resolution 980351 and ordinance 980353. On ordinance 980354 he is in agreement with most of staff's recommendations but expressed concerns regarding a plan substitute which will allow attached units along the east property line. Norma Lamp, 2500 Powderhorn, representing the Barry Heights Homes Association, expressed concerns regarding traffic issues, narrow streets, heavy traffic and the street conditions for Powderhorn Drive. Councilmember Bacchus asked what the time frame is for the development. David Matthews stated the phasing would be completed in about three to four years. Councilmember Bacchus ecouraged Ms. Lamp to appy for PIAC funds for sidewalks and street improvements for Powderhorn Drive. Committee recommended to hold the ordinances on the agenda for one week.

Bob Langenkamp, City Development gave an overview of the ordinance. He stated the ordinance will repeal section 5 of ordinance 971473. The council approved the ordinance last year. The ordinance authorized a cooperative agreement between the City and Tax Increment Financing Commission (TIF). The city appropriated $250,000.00 out of 5th District local use tax funds for public improvements to the Metro Plaza Shopping Center. It was anticipated in the original cooperative agreement that the TIF Commission will take title to the land. The amended agreement makes two changes: 1) The TIF Commission will take back public access easements instead of taking the fee title; 2) extend the completion date for May 1, 1999.
