AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Director, Development Services Department

 

From:                     Sandy Vossler, Senior Planner, Development Services Department

 

Title:                     Resolution for Site Development Plan, Lot 2A-2, Block 2, Meadows Filing No. 20, Phase 1, Amendment 13 [Meadows Town Center Mixed Use Building; Northwest of Future Street and Mercantile Street Intersection] (Project SDP19-0009)

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Planning Commission considered this proposal at a public hearing on October 24, 2019.  One member of the public addressed the Commission with a question about parking standards.  The Commission voted 7 - 0 to recommend approval, as proposed (Attachment C).

 

The Meadows is a master planned subdivision located in the northwest portion of the Town of Castle Rock and is zoned for 10,644 dwelling units.  To date, approximately 7,435 lots have been platted.  The subject property is located in the Town Center Use Area, which is zoned for mixed-use development, a maximum of 3,679 dwellings and a maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 2.0 (Attachment A).

 

This Site Development Plan (SDP) proposes a four-story mixed-use building with approximately 4,800 square feet (SF) of restaurant space on the ground floor and 111 apartment units on the second through fourth floors (Attachment B, Exhibit 1).  

 

This proposal is in conformance with the approved Meadows PD zoning and with Town review and approval criteria.  All comments have been addressed through the review process.

 

Budget Impact

 

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

 

Planning Commission Action

 

Planning Commission held a public hearing on October 24, 2019 to consider the proposed Site Development Plan.  One member of the public addressed the Commission and asked for clarification of the on-site parking requirements.  The Planning Commission commented on the provision for on-street parking, the maximum height of the building and architectural elements.  Staff responded to the parking and development standards inquiries with detail from the Meadows PD Zoning Regulations.  Mr. R.C. Hanisch, Castle Rock Development Company (CRDC) affirmed that CRDC must approve all site and building design prior to submittal to the Town.  The Commission voted 7 - 0 to recommend approval of the site plan, as proposed (Attachment C).

 

Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation

 

Planning Commission found that the proposed Site Development Plan 

 

                     Supports the objectives of the Town Vision and the Comprehensive Master Plan,

                     Complies with the requirements of the Meadows Preliminary PD Site Plan and PD Zoning Regulations, Amendment No. 4, and

                     Complies with the review and approval criteria of the Municipal Code, Chapter 17.38.

 

Proposed Motion

 

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