AGENDA MEMORANDUM

Title:                     Resolution Approving the Oakwood Apartments Site Development Plan Amendment No. 1

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The Oakwood Apartments is a 64-unit affordable senior living community owned by the Douglas County Housing Partnership located at 559 Oakwood Drive.  Douglas County Housing Partnership is proposing an amendment to their Site Development Plan that would remove one existing apartment building, the clubhouse, and leasing center.  In their place, a new centrally located three-story building that would contain the leasing center, amenity center, and 53 additional apartment units would be built, resulting in 109 overall units onsite.  Major Amendments to residential Site Development Plans require a public hearing before the Planning Commission who shall review the proposed plan and provide a recommendation to Town Council.  On September 12, 2019, Planning Commission recommended approval by a vote of 5 to 0.

 

Budget Impact

 

Development of the property will generate review and impact fees, along with use taxes for multi-family developments.  Other ongoing costs of serving a new neighborhood, in terms of public infrastructure and services, will be comparable to other residential developments in Castle Rock.

 

Recommendation

 

The Planning Commission, at a Public Hearing on September 12, 2019, recommended approval of the resolution by a vote of 5-0.

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the Resolution, as introduced by title.
