AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Director, Development Services

 

From:                     Donna Ferguson, Senior Planner, Development Services

 

Title:                     Ordinance Approving the Ridge Estates Planned Development Plan and Zoning Regulations (Second Reading - Approved on First Reading on June 4, 2019 by a vote of 6-0)

 

Executive Summary

 

On June 4, 2019, Town Council voted 6-0 to recommend approval of the Annexation as presented. There was no public comment on the application.

 

Maple Grove Land, LP, property owner and applicant, has submitted an application for initial zoning in conjunction with an annexation of a 70-acre property known as Ridge Estates, which is located south of Crystal Valley Ranch, east of Bell Mountain Ranch and north of Sellers Creek Ranch.

 

The property is currently under consideration for Annexation under a separate application. If the property is approved for annexation, it must subsequently be zoned. This application proposes to establish the initial zoning of the property as the Ridge Estates Planned Development (PD) in order to develop a single-family residential neighborhood consisting of 52 dwelling units.

 

Applications for zoning require public hearings before Town Council, after review and recommendation by Planning Commission, who shall review and make a decision upon the proposed zoning.

 

 

Budget Impact

 

The proposed annexation will generate review fees. In addition, impact fees will offset Town costs at time of zoning and site development.

 

Findings

 

Planning Commission and Staff find that the application and attachments were processed as prescribed in the Zoning process of Section 17.02.060 and the PD review process of Section 17.02.060. In addition, the proposed PD plan was reviewed and evaluated under the PD plan criteria of Section 17.34.030 and the PD zoning regulations were formatted as prescribed in PD zoning regulations criteria of 17.34.040 of the Town’s Municipal Code. 

 

Recommendation

 

Planning Commission and Town staff recommend approval of the proposed Ridge Estates Planned Development plan and zoning regulations as outlined in this report. 

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the ordinance as introduced by title, second reading.
