ZLDR ZONING MAP AMENDMENT REQUEST: ZREZ-05-19-00099 Chair Meyer said the next agenda item is a request to amend the planned development for TMS

Tagged Passions:development, zoning, Development, rental, and short-term rental

Chair Meyer called on Ms. Grimball to describe the amendment in more detail. Ms. Grimball said the PD was approved in 2006 for three single-family

dwellings. In 2009, the PD was amended to allow for an accessory dwelling unit on each parcel and to convert an existing garage to become one of the three allowed accessory dwelling units. Ms. Grimball said the current request, allowing Limited Home Rental Short-Term Rentals, is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and the Charleston County Zoning and Land Development Regulations Ordinance. She said staff recommends approval of the amendment request with conditions. She then answered questions from Commissioners.

CHARLESTON COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENTS TO INCORPORATE THE RESILIENCE ELEMENT Chair Meyer called on Ms. Grimball to review the edits as

proposed by Commissioner Warwick. Ms. Grimball displayed a Word version of the document, with track changes showing the proposed edits. She noted that the Commission could choose to accept all edits, accept some edits, propose additional edits, or adopt the version recommended by the Resilience Committee, which was presented at the June 10, 2019 meeting.
Tagged Passions:strategic and boards and commissions

Commissioner Beck said it made an impact on her that both the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors and the Coastal Conservation League came

forward at the last Planning Commission meeting, saying they worked hard on the document and support it. She stated that the document shows an approach that has tried to encompass all different viewpoints, and for that reason she thought it was important to adopt the document as presented before edits.
Tagged Passions:planning, boards and commissions, and Conservation

Chair Meyer opened the floor to public comment. Speaking in support of the Resilience Element was Virginia Jamison, 8139 Longshadow Lane, North

Charleston, who said she has followed closely the Resilience Element plan process. She said one area that government has not adequately addressed at the city, county, and state levels is stormwater retention ponds. She said many of the ponds in North Charleston are old and lack DHEC regulations addressing dredging the ponds or testing the PH levels. Additionally, she said she is the North Charleston City Council representative for District 3. There were no public requests to speak in opposition of the Resilience Element.
Tagged Passions:regulation, council, and stormwater

On the motion of Commissioner Beck, seconded by Commissioner Paulatos, the Commission voted six in favor to recommend County Council approve the

CHAIR S REMARKS Chair Meyer said with three board members announcing their intent to be absent today, there was some question about whether the

Tagged Passions:planning, legal, boards and commissions, and policy

Mr. Ferrara said, according to the Zoning and Land Development Regulations, the Planning Commission needs five members present to meet the definition

of a quorum. If a quorum is not present, there are several options: Disassemble. Informally discuss issues but not vote.

PRESENTATION: CONCEPTUAL PLANNED DEVELOPMENT FOR MAIN ROAD SELF STORAGE Chair Meyer read the description of the proposed planned development as

provided by the applicant.
Tagged Passions:streets, development, and Development

The Planned Development for Main Road Self Storage Phase V is located at 936 Main Road on Johns Island. The subject parcel is TMS 250-00-00-009 (8.55

Acres). This lot is located directly behind the existing Main Road Self Storage facilities (TMS 250-00-00-134 -218) and is a proposed extension of these existing uses of self-storage and outdoor vehicle, boat or RV storage. This project proposes 4 total buildings (up to 3 stories high) that match the existing building materials of the adjacent facilities.
Tagged Passions:streets, development, materials, boating, Development, and property

Will Rogan of Cypress Engineering gave a presentation, sharing background information about the growth of the business and maps and drawings of the

proposed expansion. He said the self-storage facility has very little traffic, even with an expansion. He answered questions of Commission members, and Commission members gave him feedback.
Tagged Passions:business, facility, expansion, boards and commissions, traffic, and growth

Ryan Buck said his parents started this business on Johns Island more than 50 years ago, and the business has grown with the island. Mr. Buck said

they want to expand the business to accommodate growth so residents will not need to leave the island to find storage. He said the business also offers moving truck rentals.
Tagged Passions:business, transportation, rental, growth, and parents

Commissioners asked about retention ponds, pervious versus impervious parking areas, egress/ingress points, curb cuts, and traffic flow

Tagged Passions:traffic and parking

Ms. Pietras mentioned that if the Main Road Overlay includes a prohibition on self-storage facilities and it is adopted before a Site Plan Review

application for Mr. Buck s facility is submitted, then it might curtail any future expansions.

Tagged Passions:development and Development

Staff response: The proposed amendment to the Planned Development complies with the standards contained in ZLDR Article 4.23.

Tagged Passions:development, zoning, and Development

B. The development is consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and other adopted policy documents; and Staff response: Prior to the

adoption of PD-88, the parcels were zoned AG-10. This PD application amendment request is consistent with the accessory structure requirements of the ZLDR Article 6.5.

calculation for allowable accessories is based on building lot coverage of 30 . This PD amendment request is also consistent with the adjacent Parkers Ferry Overlay Zoning District requirements.
Tagged Passions:zoning, Public Transit, ferry, and FERRY

C. The County and other agencies will be able to provide necessary public services, facilities,

Tagged Passions:services, Public Works, and public works

and programs to serve the development proposed, at the time the property is developed. Staff response: The proposed amendment to PD-88 to allow for

accessory structures is consistent with the existing development. Previous letters of coordination provided for the Planned Development remain satisfactory and do not need to be updated to account for the proposed use.
Tagged Passions:development, program, Development, and property
