S.
Swanick asked if the Planning Board would have the ability to defer at a future date, if needed, given this would be the applicant s second deferral. B. Priest confirmed that by the current ordinance, no further deferrals would be permitted.

S.
Hensley made a Motion to Defer the item until the August 23, 2019 meeting, and F. Gammon seconded.

No additional detail provided

H.
Bankirer stated that he was troubled about the limitations on deferral since it does not allow the Planning Board to give input that the application is defective, deficient, or missing something and then take the appropriate vote to ask the applicant to go back and look at something. That flexibility has been taken away and so he plans to vote no to the request. S. Swanick asked for clarification as to Hal s objective of voting no. J. Davis inquired if the Planning department had notified the applicant that if this deferral is granted the applicant would have no further options for deferral. B. Priest confirmed that he had included in email to the applicant that this would be the final time that the Planning Board could defer. S. Swanick addressed the applicant and asked if they were certain they would be

ready by the August 27 date since no further deferrals could be granted and the Planning Board will be required to vote. Brandon Edwards, (16436 Monocacy Blvd, Huntersville), stated that he was looking forward to a vote this evening. NCDOT has had these plans for several months and they have been unable to meet prior to this date. Applicant stated that he does not want to present an incomplete site plan, which will affect the vote, so deferral has been necessary. They are scheduled to meet to finalize the TIA and NCDOT concerns. C. Graffy asked if the deferral is made to August then does the applicant have to present in August. B. Priest confirmed that the applicant would be required to present in August. The applicant confirmed that with the NCDOT meeting scheduled for Monday, July 29, 2019 that he felt they would be ready for the August meeting.

F.
Gammon asked procedurally if the extension could be made for 60 days. S. Swanick confirmed that a 60-day extension could be granted but then it could not go on the August agenda. S. Swanick asked the applicant if they would like a 60- day extension to be sure they have enough time or would you prefer to chance that 30-days is not enough and you would be looking at an incomplete application that the Planning Board must vote on. Applicant, B. Edwards stated that they are confident that they do not need 60-days.

D.2. R19-07: Lake Norman Charter Elementary, located at 9831 Hambright Road (parcel 01723306), request to modify their Campus Institutional Conditional District rezoning plan.

B. Priest entered the staff report into the record, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit A, and incorporated herein by reference. This request is for a modification to the conditional rezoning of Lake Norman Charter Elementary School located on Hambright Road. As part of the rezoning, there was a maximum number of students placed on the plan of 500 students. This application is to modify the notes to allow a maximum of 610 students. Traffic impact has been reviewed with NCDOT standards and transportation staff has reviewed the plan and found the existing stacking accommodation to be suitable for the increase in students. Staff recommends approval.

F.
Gammon made a Motion to Approve based on the amendment being consistent with policy CD-2 of the Huntersville 2030 Community Plan. It is reasonable and in the public interest to approve the rezoning because the amendment does not in fact change the current zoning. The amendment increases the student population from 500 to 610 students. This increase in available student slots offers the citizens of Huntersville increased opportunity for educational choice. J. Sny seconded. H. Bankirer asked what the approach was that the transportation staff took to approve the existing stack being sufficient with the increase in students. B. Priest

Tagged Passions:zoning, transportation, policy, and students

confirmed that the calculation was done based on M.S.T.A. guidelines from NCDOT, they have a calculation formula that they use, and Stephen Trott stated at the Neighborhood meeting that the base number required for 500 or 610 students was the same number so upon physical inspection it was determined that they had sufficient existing stack. H. Bankirer confirmed that an on-site inspection was included in this determination. B. Priest confirmed that that was his understanding, and that there is another note on the plan that states that stacking is not permitted off-site. So if a situation occurs that there is stacking, that would be a violation of their zoning plan. H. Bankirer confirmed that it would also present a safety issue.

The Motion carried unanimously (9-0).

E.1. Huntersville Community Plan Update Dave Hill, Senior Planner, noted the importance of the Huntersville Community Plan to the Planning Board. He acknowledged that at some point in time, the data becomes aged and communities focus on updating their plan every 7-10 years. Our last Community Plan was completed in 2011 and the Town Board has decided to begin an update. An internal review of several communities within North Carolina has been completed to gain insight on what their current or recently completed Community Plans are including. For the last Community Plan, it was a staff generated project during the recession and the Planning Board served as the Steering Committee.

In April, the Town Board approved a Request for Proposals of consultant firms to lead this update. In June, proposals were reviewed and a unanimous decision was made on the lead firm selection, Stewart Planning out of Raleigh, NC. Kimley- Horn and Associates is a sub-consultant dealing with economic, transportation, and land use analysis. Nealon Planning is a sub-consultant to provide some of the context on urban design and public engagement tasks.

We are currently in contract negotiations and nearing completion of the scope of work. It will be a contract for professional services, a scope of work, a budget for different tasks within that scope, and a schedule. The goal is to have this presented at the Town Board meeting on August 5, 2019.
Tagged Passions:planning, budget, contract, transportation, services, and selection

Additionally, this month on the main page of the Town s website, there is an opportunity for interested citizens to apply to become Steering Committee members for the project. A Steering Committee will be appointed by the Town Board and that will be the group that will provide oversight for the project through its duration. They will meet 6-8 times during the project. They will review the product delivered by the consultants and help spread the word that we need participation from the community. Applications will be accepted until August 1, 2019 and depending on the number of candidates, we have a tentative meet and greet scheduled with the candidates prior to the Town Board meeting on August 5, 2019. The Steering Committee applicants would be presented to the Town Board for approval on August 19, 2019.

The consensus is that an update to the 2030 Community Plan is needed but not a complete replacement. Within the scope of work, mandatory items include a robust public participation program, an independent project website that will contain all the information regarding upcoming meetings, opportunities to register for notifications, and surveys. A very successful survey was completed in 2011 and with the addition of 15,000 residents, the desire is to get good results again this time. There will also be stakeholder, focus group, public meetings, and workshops. The public participation workshops will be formally put together with Steering Committee oversight. That will be one of the products in the early stages. The creation of a community profile document that will reflect the facts, figures, and statistics about the Town of Huntersville. Who provides services and utilities? How do you break out the demographic profile? Age, income? Single- family, multi-family? All of those statistics will be in one place and those will hopefully be placed on the Town s website in the future. The Planning Board deals with policies on a regular basis in their consideration of items. The consultant will be asked to drive down deeper to goals and objectives. This will involve talking with the Planning Board and Town Board about what ordinances do they wrestle with that are ambiguous, need clarification, or may have conflicts. Those are the types of things that they want to know so they can discuss how to resolve those moving forward. A land use suitability report will be concentrated on developer hot-spots areas to review it for transportation, economic market conditions, and its relative position in high-intensity versus low-intensity areas. Less consideration will be given to land that is already developed, land under conservancy, and land within environmental restraint, such as in the floodplain. There will be some options presented that will talk about what kind of future growth options might exist and how do we keep our expectations realistic. It s possible the community wants certain types of development and at the same time, if it s economically unrealistic we are going to say so during the community dialogue. The emphasis during the plan is on some of the traditional elements, with land use and transportation being a big deal. With the large investment in transportation that will be going on during this 7-10 year period and the potential disruption that will occur to the economy and access to property, along with transit areas previously reserved for commuter rail, and now looking at other interim strategies such as bus rapid transit, we have a lot there to reconcile.

We will talk about affordable and work-force housing. We will talk about economic health and fiscal impact. Cost of service, what value of a single-family home is needed to be able to support the tax base and expenditures that the Town is going to have to face. That tends to be very simplistic, we are going to have to temper that by looking at other indicators of how we want Huntersville to grow, what is going to be the balance of land-uses that make sense, and what are we going to do if we really want to have diversity in terms of price points for housing and different kinds of things.

Because of Huntersville s reputation, the idea of continuing to expect place making and special community or character areas to be identified and developed, is going to need attention. We have some excellent examples of how our form based code has really put Huntersville on the map and has really created some vital, active areas and is something that we need to continue as long as the community wants to do that. The plan will also contain a realistic implementation strategy.

S.
Hensley asked how many people would be on the Steering Committee, and how was the community notified of this opportunity since this is an important role. D. Hill responded that he agreed, there is an August 1, 2019 deadline to submit the application, it has been posted on the Huntersville website and it has been emailed to Huntersville 101 alumni and to any applicant not yet selected for a Town committee position. A recommendation of 11-15 volunteers was made to the Town Board. To date we have 5 applications that have been submitted, some with very impressive credentials. S. Hensley expressed a concern about how often our Town residents actually visit the Town website and suggested additional advertising or awareness be given to this. D. Hill stated that word-of-mouth would also help including Planning Board and Town Board members sharing it with those they know, additionally, once we are in the process with the consultants, communication with the town via social media and other avenues will be utilized.

H. Bankirer made suggestions to review public participation and utilize push modeled communication such as social media, newspaper, magazines, e-blasts and to make that part of the contract. In terms of the land use analysis, possibly including redevelopment, in-fill, or reuse as a category as well so that as Huntersville begins to fill we can address this very important category. Additionally, involving the contractor in identifying some non-traditional approaches to zoning or zoning-on-the-fly because while what we are doing currently works for the most part, we have to violate our own zoning rules on a regular basis and that highlights that there has to be a better method. Lastly, regarding transportation, H. Bankirer agreed it should be an emphasis item. Construction and transit were identified and the suggestion was made to include, how we manage our transportation network, if the TIA is the right vehicle and what are they symptoms and causes for our issues with the TIA and how does the plan address our ability to manage our transit densities?

D.
Hill responded that regarding the TIA and the adequate public facilities, he does not believe that the long-term plan will address those specifically versus systemically, such as, how are you organizing this and how can it be managed better. H. Bankirer provided the clarification that possibly the long-term transportation network planning can be framed so that the TIA can then draw from it as opposed to the other way around, so it can guide the development versus reacting.

C.
Graffy asked about the demographic analysis component with the timing of the April 2020 census and if that census data will be incorporated. D. Hill stated that he did not believe there would be enough time. Data from the states demographer s office would be used and when that is updated then we would

reconcile our information. C. Graffy stressed that the census data is typically much more robust and we would benefit from incorporating that data. H. Bankirer added the recommendation that D. Hill or J. Simoneau create a television spot to get the word out. Since the 2030 plan was recognized as an excellent document and we are going to build on that, make this one even better, and set the standard, local television channels would likely be interested. D. Hill confirmed that some type of major public announcement at the beginning would be appropriate.

J.
Davis asked if the policy review portion would include a review of zoning ordinances. D. Hill explained how the current ordinances can at times lead to conflicting objectives within the policy, for example, you want to save non- residential land for employment and commercial development but what happens if it s a mixed-use residential and commercial comes in? How are you supposed to view that and how are you supposed to make a decision? The long-term plan will attempt to view the zoning ordinances from a goals and perspectives position that are either geographically specific or situational based versus one overriding policy.

S.
Swanick asked what involvement the Planning Board will have with the development of the long-term plan. D. Hill explained that there will be a determination on how to involve them at some stage of the process, possibly spending a session with the consultants to outline their experiences and recommendations. Additionally, the Planning Board will receive updates and the Steering Committee will be directed to talk about and share with the Planning Board members and the community so that everyone is involved. When the plan is finalized the Planning Board will participate in a public hearing, and make a recommendation to the Town Board prior to adoption.

S.
Swanick followed up with the request to discuss what would be considered a tangible change following this process. He explained that his concern was that the Steering Committee would outline their requests, possibly of less development, more roads, and more schools; but not identify the solutions. Also, if those items are governed by state laws, ordinances, or funding issues then is that taken into consideration to outline a realistic plan. D. Hill responded that community input will be vital to identify what the community really wants and that will have implications as to what the future of Huntersville would look like and how to address those needs through adjustments to zoning maps, zoning ordinances, and transit plans. The plan would create recommendations and then regulatory changes would have to be adopted in the zoning ordinance. S. Swanick confirmed that based on the plan, the Board would need to make recommendations to adopt the ordinances to suit the plan. D. Hill confirmed that was correct and would be determined as the plan is developed.

J.
Sny stated that the TIA Subcommittee is tentatively scheduled to meet with Professor Lovelady of UNCSOG, Associate Professor of Law and Government with his focus being on land-use law and local planning. That will be the next step in the TIA subcommittee s steps in presenting some ideas and potential approaches to developing some legitimate possible solutions.

H.
Bankirer requested to address the Planning Board regarding the previous discussion on deferrals. Chairwoman, J. Davis acceded. H. Bankirer stated that previously the rule was two deferrals. The Town Board opted to adjust this and changed the rule to one deferral. Eventually the Planning Board convinced the Town Board to adjust back to two deferrals. Through this process the question often arises, is it the Town Board that is causing the deferral or is it the applicant? The consistent answer on the few cases that this has applied to is, it doesn t matter. H. Bankirer concluded with making the case to the Chairwoman and Vice-Chairman to see if they can convince the Town Board that if applicants request deferrals, that should be a different category from the Planning Board requesting deferrals, possibly two permitted by each group. Whatever the solution is, that there be more opportunity for the applicant to present a complete case and Planning Board to decide on a complete case since it is serious business.

J. Davis responded that in this instance we may have to trust the applicant that he is pushing his plan to the best of his ability but he is delayed due to required people being on vacation. It definitely could be useful to look at this historical data and determine how many cases this applies to. H. Bankirer stated that in his experience it is predominantly applicants who request deferral. J. Sny stated that he could see the benefit since he would not want the Planning Board to be the cause of thwarting an applicant s plans. As it relates to the case presented today, he s not sure how this would discussion applies since the applicant is aware of the rules and made the choice on how to proceed in full knowledge. S. Hensley stated that in his opinion the applicant may need more than two deferrals, particularly in this economy. Service providers are so busy that trying to get anybody s attention to your project is so difficult. The applicant is already under pressure to close the real estate deal and it s more than likely that the applicant does not want to defer. F. Gammon commented that applicants may be better off waiting until they have their answers prior to submitting.

S.
Thomas stated that her concern was focused on the magnitude of the decisions that are made at each meeting and basing it on some level of information. In some cases the deferrals allow a deeper dive into some of the details that are going to impact the community for years to come. When we limit the deferrals, in some cases, we miss the opportunity to put a magnifying glass on a potential issue before it goes to Town Board. H. Bankirer stated that an applicant could, for whatever reason necessary, utilize their deferment and then come before the Planning Board to learn that there is a recommendation that the Planning Board has made and that they are willing to address. It would be nice to be able to defer and allow the applicant to address those recommendations prior to a vote. J. Davis confirmed that typically the applicant is allowed to voluntarily defer. C. Graffy stated that we have no idea what the rest of the factors are for an applicant so it may not be to their benefit to defer. H. Bankirer confirmed that in the past the applicant has the ability to indicate if there are contractual deadlines that they need to meet and if deferring is not in their best interest. C. Graffy asked how the proposed adjustment would affect these applicants and H. Bankirer confirmed that it would not, it would run the same process as it does now and the applicant would have the ability to ask that vote be taken.

property would accommodate the outdoor softball/baseball and soccer fields. The applicants are also rezoning the rural portion of property to Rural Conditional District (R-CD) due to the parking and storm water controls for the

The subject properties are located in the Critical Area 2 of the Mountain Island Lake Overlay District (MIL-O).

Therefore the maximum amount of impervious cover (structures, asphalt, parking, etc.) allowed for the development is 12 of the total area of the property. Hambright Road is the drainage divide (ridgeline) for the

watershed district. North of Hambright Road has a different drainage basin and is in the protected area watershed

which allows greater impervious cover. South of Hambright Road has a more direct fall to the lake and therefore is

After discussing the

Tagged Passions:planning, streets, zoning, parks, property, Bicycles, athletics, traffic, and bicycles

specifics of the application, NCDOT and Huntersville engineering staff agreed that the TIA could be modified to

define the amount of generated trips more consistent with the function of the proposed use. The TIA was therefore redone and resubmitted to staff on 8/9/19. The updated site plan was submitted to staff on

Wednesday evening on 8/14/19. At the time of staff report drafting, engineering staff had not had a chance to

review the updated TIA or rezoning plan but hopes to do so prior to the Planning Board meeting. o Several turn lanes at the facility are going to be required by NCDOT. These requirements have had an

Tagged Passions:planning, facility, and zoning

effect on the site plan as generally described below:

The driveway has been moved farther to the west away from the Mt. Holly Huntersville / Hambright Road intersection. The permanent parking area near Hambright Road was removed. Additional parking was added to the main parking lot to the east near Mt. Holly Huntersville Road. The overall permanent parking space count has remained the same. The proposed building has been shifted south into the site to accommodate the required turn lanes on Hambright Road. Article 7.5 of the Zoning Ordinance requires that developments in the Special Purpose (SP) zoning district establish an 80 foot buffer adjacent to the street. However the buffer may be reduced where building scale,

frontage relationship, and location of accessory uses ensure design compatibility off site . Therefore if the

building has a frontage relationship to the street, with windows, doors, and is appropriately located on the front build to line (usually about 15 feet from the Right of Way (ROW)), the 80 foot buffer can be significantly reduced or eliminated, as a building addressing the street does not need to be buffered from it.

modification of the Hambright and Mt. Holly Huntersville Road buffer.

Tagged Passions:streets

o
The applicants are requesting a modification of the 80 foot buffer requirements between the SP and R

portions internal to the development. As this is a planned development, staff supports this buffer modification request. As mentioned above, the greenway master plan identifies Mt. Holly Huntersville Road and Hambright Road as bikeway corridors. However because this development is not a subdivision of land, accommodating bike lanes is not required of the developer by ordinance. However if turn lane improvements are required by NCDOT along the property frontage, staff recommends that the improvements include bike lane construction consistent with the Greenway and Bikeway Master Plan. o UPDATE: 8/16/19: NCDOT is requiring turn lanes into the facility both on Hambright Road and Mt. Holly

Huntersville Road. Since widening of the road and construction is already required, staff recommends

that that bike lanes be included in the required road improvement plans. The proposed rezoning plan shows 184 parking spaces for the facility. In the Zoning Ordinance, minimum

recreational uses. Therefore this development s total parking requirement would only be 60 parking spaces

(30,000 sqft / 500 sqft).

Tagged Passions:development, Development, parking, and recreation

o
Although the amount of parking proposed is well over the minimum required in the ordinance, staff is

Tagged Passions:ordinance and parking

concerned that the proposed 184 parking spaces is well short of the needed parking to accommodate

the full use of the building and fields. In discussion with the Parks and Recreation department, past experience in planning and design of our park facilities has shown an estimated need of around 50 permanent parking spaces per field and court. Therefore for the 4 fields and court on the proposed plan, an estimated 250 spaces at the very minimum would be needed to accommodate the facility at full capacity. Splitting the fields or ball courts into separate play areas would necessitate even more parking.
Tagged Passions:planning, legal, facility, parking, court, and recreation

o
The applicants have shown 68 spaces of overflow parking and bus parking located on grass. Article 6 of

the ordinance states that this overflow area must be maintained in a clean and dust-free condition .
Tagged Passions:ordinance, Public Transit, and parking

Staff s further concern is that this special event area would need to be used on a regular basis due to

the lack of paved parking, and thus not be able to be maintained adequately. The overflow parking area would then need to be paved. However due to watershed restrictions, this area could not be paved and made impervious. The property is located in a Critical Watershed Overlay district with a maximum 12 impervious

cover. The applicant s proposed plan shows 11.68 of impervious currently. Paving the

proposed overflow area would exceed the maximum impervious for the development.
Tagged Passions:development and Development

Therefore if the use is constructed and the parking does prove to be insufficient, the applicant

would not be in a position to add sufficient parking at a later time. o UPDATE 8/16/19: The applicants have added conditional notes on the plan to reduce the need for parking. Please see the notes below on page 5. The notes would restrict games being held on the soccer field and the indoor facility while baseball games/tournaments are being held. Also, at no time

spaces needed. When baseball/softball tournament games are played on the fields, only instruction

Tagged Passions:instruction

would be permitted at the other soccer and indoor facilities. Therefore with only 3 baseball fields in

operation only 150 spaces would be needed, applying the general requirement of 50 spaces per field used by staff. With 184 permanent parking spaces proposed, an additional 34 spaces would be available for instructional activities in the building and on the soccer field. The note also states that in the event that the applicant acquires additional land area and impervious allowance, paves the full amount of the overflow parking (67 spaces) per ordinance,

Tagged Passions:ordinance, events, and parking

then at that time the notes would no longer apply and they could use the full facility to capacity.

Current Zoning: Transitional Residential Conditional District (TR-CD) Rural (R).

Current Land Use: vacant. Proposed Zoning: Revised Transitional Residential Conditional District (TR-CD). Proposed Land Use: 227 single-family homes: 211 in Tract A (a 6 lot increase); 16 in Tract B (no increase). 1. Purpose: Rezone and add 2.22-acres from Rural (R) Zoning to a revised Conditional District Rezoning Plan that will add the new parcel and increase the density of Tract A from 205 to 211 single-family lots. No changes are proposed for Tract B (See Attachment B). The specific request is to rezone 177.27-acres from Transitional Residential Conditional District (TR-CD) and Rural (R) to Transitional Residential Conditional District (TR-CD) to add approximately two (2) acres of land, to increase the lot count for Tract A from 205 to 211 and to increase specimen-tree save. The Oaks at Skybrook North, as a whole, is proposed to include 177.27-acres, which is divided into Tracts A B. All of the PROPOSED CHANGES ARE FOR TRACT A ONLY. The additional new acreage, increase in lot-count and specimen-tree save and other minor revisions are all on Tract A. There are no revisions proposed for Tract B. If the proposed rezoning is approved, a coinciding Subdivision Sketch Plan will be reviewed by staff for compliance. 2. Adjoining Zoning and Land Uses. North: Rural (R) large-lot single-family vacant. South: Rural (R) single-family (Parkside at Skybrook Subdivision) agri-business (Metrolina Greenhouses).

Notice for this rezoning petition was given via letters sent to adjoining property owners; a legal ad placed in the Charlotte Observer; and posting of rezoning signs on the property in two (2) locations.

PART 2: REZONING/SITE PLAN ISSUES The proposed Conditional District Rezoning Plan is generally compliant with the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations, significant elements include: The Oaks at Skybrook North subdivision - revision (for Tract A), which is the only portion of the development where changes are proposed, involves an increase in density from 205 to 211 lots. The developer is looking to add a 2.22-acre parcel along the western boundary of the subdivision and to relocate a BMP to the added acreage and convert the area previously assigned for the BMP into six (6) new lots.

Tagged Passions:regulation, ordinance, legal, development, zoning, subdivision, Development, and property

o
The current density for Oaks at Skybrook North was greatly impacted by the removal of a large amount of land during a real estate transaction in 2010 between Skybrook, LLC and Metrolina Greenhouses. While the residual subdivision satisfied all of the elements of the ordinances, the majority of the saved open space was not in close proximity to the future homes. In short, the density of Tract A is greater than a subdivision would typically be in the Transitional Residential (TR) zoning district. The addition of new acreage into the existing TR-CD subdivision is supported and allows for a BMP to be re-located to a more conducive location. However, per Ordinance, the TR zone would only permit 1.5 units-per-acre with 40 (or more) open space. Therefore, with the amount of open space proposed for the additional 2.22-acres, Staff can support an additional three (3) units.

The currently approved TR-CD Rezoning Plan saves 56 of the existing specimen trees and the two (2) additional specimen trees proposed to be saved still equal 56 . Minimum Specimen Tree Save for the TR zone is 35 . PART 3: TRANSPORTATION ISSUES A TIA is not required by the Town for the proposed increase for Tract A from 205 to 211 single-family detached housing units (221 to 227 overall) as it is below the 50 peak hour and 500 daily trip thresholds. All previously required TIA improvements are currently being installed, per the approved Subdivision Plan. PART 4: ADEQUATE PUBLIC FACILITIES (APF) Under the provisions of the APF Ordinance, all residential development greater than twenty (20) lots are required to receive a Determination of Adequacy (DOA) for the following public facilities: fire station, fire vehicles, police station, police vehicles, indoor park and recreation facilities, and parks acreage. Since the proposed rezoning is for six (6) new lots, the APF threshold is not hit, therefore, an APF Ordinance Determination of Adequacy was not required. In addition, the existing Oaks at Skybrook North has already been accounted for by the Town. PART 5: REZONING CRITERIA Article 11.4.7(d) of the Zoning Ordinance states that in considering any petition to reclassify property, the Planning Board in its recommendation and the Town Board in its decision shall take into consideration any identified relevant adopted land-use plans for the area including, but not limited to, comprehensive plans, strategic plans, district plans, area plans, neighborhood plans, corridor plans, and other land-use policy documents .

Tagged Passions:planning, ordinance, zoning, and property

1.
Whether the proposed reclassification is consistent with the overall character of existing development in the immediate vicinity of the subject property. STAFF COMMENT: The proposed Transitional Residential Conditional District (TR-CD) Rezoning Revision for the Oaks at Skybrook North subdivision is supported by the 2030 Comprehensive Plan, as the zoning district is not changing, only the provision of the CD rezoning plan. The Oaks at Skybrook North s proposed overall density is 1.28-units per acre, however Tract A (where the revisions are proposed) would have a density of 2.13-units per acre. Staff can recommend approval for three (3) additional lots, as this will be consistent with the TR provision of the Zoning Ordinance. Overall, the density is below the Transitional Residential District (TR) maximum density of 1.5 units per acre, but the proposed density for Tract A would be higher than both the TR density limit, as well as the adjacent Parkside at Skybrook North development, which has 1.44 units per acre. The proposed development already will provide adequate infrastructure (which includes new roads within the development, existing, adjacent road upgrades and other transportation enhancements as well as providing additional open space).

PART 6: STAFF RECOMMENDATION

The Oaks at Skybrook North Conditional District Rezoning Plan can be supported by staff subject to the following: Staff supports rezoning the 2.22-acres from Rural to TR-CD and increasing lot-count by three (3) (2.2 ac. X 1.5 units/ac. for TR = 3.3 or 3 lots). While increasing the lot-count by 6, as proposed by the Applicant, will result in an overall density-compliance with TR standards, staff does not support the proposal given the remoteness of the open space found on Tract B, while the homes will be located on Tract A.

fronting the street. Given the placement and close proximity of the approved community entrance, an additional entrance would not be approved by NCDOT.

o David presented the preliminary desip to staffand within a few days, Scott received an email from Adam Nowocin (Mecklenburg County Engineer- at the time) showing a desip that relocatod a nearby water quality pond on the two acre site with lots being placed where the pond was previously positioned (on the revised Oaks approval). The developers reviewed and agreed that staffs recommendation would better serve the site for water quality and the current proposal essentially matches with the stafffeedback. o In summary, the request shows a cul-de-sac with 6 additional lots (matching the nearby lot sizes within the Oaks communrty) and a repositioning of the water quality pond. There are also small increases in open space and tree save with this design.
