DISCUSSION

Board member Baker asked if the City was pushing to get sewer out to this property.

Tagged Passions:sewer, utility, Utility, and property

Amy McNeill said that sewer would be extended to the airport, but would not be available for this property.

Tagged Passions:sewer, airport, utility, Utility, and property

Board member Turner asked how this zoning fits within the 2020 Sanford-Lee County Land Use Plan and the Deep River Small Area Plan. It was his

interpretation that the recommended use would be industrial / commercial / office.
Tagged Passions:zoning, industrial, watershed, and commercial

Amy McNeill said that the recommended use for this property per the referenced plans reflects the information within the old Airport Overlay

District, which has been updated and no longer includes this area.
Tagged Passions:airport and property

Board member Turner asked if the plan is inconsistent, then how to say it is a recommended use.

Amy McNeill stated that even though it is not good practice for the board to recommend approval of a rezoning request that does not conform to the

adopted plans, it is not illegal because plans are intended to serve as a guide and are not perfect. If the board frequently recommend approval of rezoning requests that do not conform to the adopted plans, staff will take a look at revising the plans.
Tagged Passions:zoning

Vice Chair Morris stated that the photographs provided by the neighbor across the road, Mr. Fred Sloan, show a tremendous amount of water in the area

after recent rainfalls and asked the applicant how he proposes to handle the storm water in and around the subdivision.
Tagged Passions:streets, utility, Utility, subdivision, water, and stormwater

Mr. Groce stated that a sedimentation pond would be created within the subdivision.

Tagged Passions:subdivision

Amy McNeill told the Board that if an acre or more was disturbed, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) requires

sedimentation and erosion control plans to be approved and implemented on site. This is regulated at the state level, not the local level.
Tagged Passions:environment

Mr. Groce stated that he planned to develop 24 dwellings and that he had hired a soil scientist to help create a design that would involve less land

being cleared and therefore, less erosion. It is already zoned RA, so houses could currently be developed on 40,000 sq. ft. lots. Once it is rezoned, the preliminary plat would still have to be approved by the Board.
Tagged Passions:zoning

Amy McNeill concurred that the preliminary plat will have to come back to the Board for approval and would illustrate the configuration and size of

the lots and the roadway details.
Tagged Passions:zoning

Board member Morris stated that areas are flooding with no curb/gutter/drainage system. He would encourage this be included in the plans.

Tagged Passions:flooding and stormwater

issues, for example Riverbirch Shopping Center.

Tagged Passions:commercial

Board member Cox questioned the area to be cleared for a septic field.

Mr. Groce said that there would be a community septic system and 4-5 acres would be cleared for the septic field.

Board member Baker asked what was a community septic system and how does it work.

Mr. Groce stated that Agri-waste Technologies or another similar company would maintain and inspect the conventional septic system as required by the

State and that the drain fields will be maintained and mowed. It is paid for through the Homeowners Fees through the Homeowners Association.

DECISION

Board member Baker made a motion to table the decision until the December 17, 2018, meeting and directed staff to obtain more information concerning

the flooding in the area and how a private community septic system functions; seconded by Board member Ferguson. The motion carried unanimously.

An item was added by Board member Turner Text Amendment Discussion.

Mr. Turner stated that he would like clarification of this Board s role in the text amendment. UDO Section 2.3 This Board s powers and duties

initiate hear and review and make recommendations to governing bodies. He asked if any person may apply for a change.
Tagged Passions:UDO

Amy McNeill said that any person may apply for a UDO text amendment and that this Board recommends changes initiated by citizens or the Board.

Tagged Passions:UDO

Chair Coles stated that there are text amendments that are currently being updated.

Board member Morris stated that the Board needs to look at floodplains more seriously.

Amy McNeill stated that FEMA provides template ordinances that the County adopts to ensure compliance with FEMA floodplain regulations, which allow

us to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program. This ordinance establish how people may build and develop within the floodplain. All new development within floodplains must comply with this ordinance. There are however, existing houses and buildings that were constructed prior to the adoption of the current floodplain ordinance and/or the adoption of the latest floodplain maps, which may experience flooding problems.

DISCUSSION Tony Williams, of the Lee County Environmental Health Dept. discussed community septic systems.

Tagged Passions:health and environment

Planning Board Minutes Rezoning Cooper Ridge Dev., LLC 12/17/2018 2

Tagged Passions:planning and zoning

He stated that a community septic system is a more centralized septic system. There is a septic tank on each individual property that pumps to a

centralized location for the drain field. He said that the drain field will consist of 3 areas that will have suitable soil for a drain field. The developer will have to hire a licensed soil scientist and they identify the suitable soils in the tract of land. Larger drain field will be required to handle more design flow.
Tagged Passions:property and license

Vice Chair Morris asked if, with the community septic system, the size of the septic tank would be normal for the size of the house.

Tony Williams said yes, the septic tank would be a 1,000 gallon tank.

Board member Cox asked if each lot would have a pump.

Tony Williams said yes; basically no individual drain fields.

Board member Ferguson asked what was the advantage of having a community septic system.

Tony Williams stated that in an area that doesn t have good soils, it allows houses in an aggregate area.

Tony Williams said that any design flow over 3,000 gallons a day or over 24 houses goes to the State. The drain field area has to be 50 feet from

septic area with a well.

Board member Turner asked if there were any community septic systems in Lee County; would the system fall under the public utility commission; and by

using the system would it increase density.
Tagged Passions:boards and commissions, utility, and Utility

Tony Williams said that, to the best of his knowledge, there were none in Lee County. The system would be owned by the Home Owners Association and go

through the state for approval with an engineered design. The density would possibly increase, based on the soils. He stated that clay soils have a smaller drain field than sandy soils. He said that 7.6 acres is a sufficient drain field and repair area for 30 acres.

Amy McNeill, Zoning Administrator, discussed floodplain in the area.

Tagged Passions:zoning and administrator

Amy stated that there is no floodplain on the site; therefore, the Floodplain Ordinance does not apply to this development.

Tagged Passions:ordinance, development, and Development

Amy said the original Copper Ridge Subdivision has individual septic systems. Copper Ridge East has individual septic systems, but some homes will

use the same drain field at an off-site location.
Tagged Passions:subdivision

Board member Baker stated that he is troubled about the area with the soils and lots of rain.

Vice Chair Morris asked if there would be another drain field.

Planning Board Minutes Rezoning Cooper Ridge Dev., LLC 12/17/2018 3

Tagged Passions:planning and zoning

Amy McNeill stated yes, should have a repair area and an engineer is responsible for a design of the system.

Amy McNeill said that if the developer chose to develop a subdivision with 40,000 square foot lots, it would meet the standards of the current RA

zoning district and would therefore not require rezoning. The developer is requesting 20,000 square foot lots, which requires that the land be rezoned.
Tagged Passions:zoning and subdivision

DECISION

Board member Turner made a motion to recommend to the Lee County Board of Commissioner to deny the rezoning application, based on the fact it is not

consistent with the Deep River Small Area Plan and the Land Use Plan; seconded by Board member Ferguson. The motion carried unanimously.

Staff Analysis and Information The subject properties are currently zoned Residential Restricted (RR) and Residential Agricultural (RA). The

Residential Restricted zoning district is established to provide areas for low-density single- family uses, with a maximum of one and one-half dwelling units per acre. Property within this zoning district should include only those tracts which abut or are in close proximity to existing large-lot single family development, making this an appropriate transition district between rural, agricultural, and suburban uses. The dimensional requirements include a minimum lot width of 100 feet, a minimum lot depth of 125 feet, a minimum lot size of 30,000 square feet, with principal building setbacks of 30 feet from the front property line, 30 feet from the rear property line and 15 feet from the side property lines with a maximum building height of 40 feet. Examples of uses permitted by right within the RR zoning district include single-family detached homes (site built or modular), churches, animal crop production, forestry, bed breakfast inns, stables/riding academies, in-home daycares for children adults. There is a list of permitted uses for this zoning district included within the agenda for your reference. (Manufactured or mobile homes are not permitted within the RR district.)
Tagged Passions:rural, preschool, agriculture, pets, development, zoning, hotel, Development, church, property, Forestry, Child Care, and mobile homes

The Residential Agricultural (RA) zoning district is established to provide areas for low density single family uses, low intensity agricultural

operations as well as agri-business and supportive industrial and commercial uses. Industrial operations are not permitted unless they clearly support an agricultural use. RA zoning protects and preserves valuable agricultural areas, implements agricultural protection zoning, establishes performance standards for rural businesses, preserves rural areas, preserves pasture land and agriculture, sets maximum permissible densities or new zoning districts, defines specific areas for rural commercial uses, and identifies areas appropriate for agricultural preservation. The dimensional requirements include a minimum lot width of 100 feet, a minimum lot depth of 150 feet, a minimum lot size of 40,000 square feet, with principal building setbacks of 30 feet from the front property line, 30 feet from the rear property line, and 15 feet from the side property lines, with a maximum building height of 40 feet. Examples of uses permitted by right within the RA zoning district include single-family detached homes (site-built, modular), religious complexes, schools, animal and crop production, stables and riding academies, and day care facilities. There is a list of permitted uses for this zoning district included within your agenda for your reference.

The proposed zoning of General Commercial (C-2) is intended to provide areas for general commercial activities designed to serve the community such

as shopping centers, repair shops, wholesale businesses, and retail sales with limited outdoor display of goods and limited outdoor operations. This district promotes a broad range of commercial operations and services necessary for large regions of the County, providing community balance. C-2 zones should be located on or within proximity to major thoroughfares. The dimensional requirements of the C-2 district include a minimum lot width of 50 feet, a minimum lot depth of 100 feet (which creates a minimum lot size of 5,000 square feet), with principal building setbacks of 10 feet from the front property line and the required landscape buffer yard width determining the required rear and side yard setbacks as measured from the property lines. The typical required landscape buffer width for a C-2 use being developed next to a RA use is 20ft, measured from the exterior property lines inward towards the commercially developed site. There is no maximum building height in C-2 zoning districts. The maximum allowed impervious surface, such as roof top, parking lot, etc., is 80 of the site. Examples of uses permitted by right within the C-2 zoning district include churches, schools, daycares for children adults, animal crop production, forestry, agricultural equipment sales service, farm landscape garden supply sales, flea markets, antique shops, gun shops gunsmiths, general merchandise auction sales, convenience stores with without gas sales, car washes, barbershops salons, restaurants with or without drive-through, motor vehicle sales, service towing, offices for professional services (such as attorneys or realtors), commercial indoor recreation activities, and warehouses. There is a list of permitted uses for this zoning district included within the agenda for your reference.

The current zoning districts are Highway Commercial (HC), General Commercial (C-2), Light Commercial (C-1), Office Institutional (OI) and Multi-Family Residential (MF-12). The proposed zoning districts are General Commercial (C-2), Office Institutional (OI), and Multi-Family Residential (MF-12). The recommended development density is mixed commercial lot sizes or multi-family with 16+ dwelling units per acre with shallow to moderate building setbacks and a 50 foot height limit. Utility infrastructure is public water and public wastewater. The preferred character is a 2-4 lane urban street network, a core grid street network, and 3-500 foot block length with sidewalks and street trees, as well as on-street and rear parking with landscaped off-street parking.

language briefly explaining why it considers the recommendation to be reasonable and in the public interest.

Staff Recommendation Staff recommends that the Boards support this rezoning request. In making this recommendation, staff finds that the rezoning

proposal from Residential Restricted (RR) and Residential Agricultural (RA) to General Commercial (C-2) appears to be in keeping with the land uses described in the Plan SanLee land use plan. This request appears to be reasonable and in the public interest based upon the location of the site along a busy roadway adjacent to an existing shopping center, that this may allow the larger commercially zoned tract to the rear to have public road frontage, and the availability of public utilities. It should, however, be noted that staff would not recommend the continuation of C-2 zoning westward along Center Church Road, as there will need to be a buffer between the commercial area near the intersection of Center Church Road and US Hwy 1/Jefferson Davis Hwy and the residential area. Please note that the information presented at the public hearing should also be considered regarding a final decision on the requested zoning map amendment.
