AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Development Services Director

 

From:                     Sandy Vossler, Senior Planner, Development Services Department

                     Brad Boland, AICP, Planner II, Development Services Department

 

 

Title:                     Ordinance Amending the Town’s Zone District Map by Approving the Lanterns Planned Development Plan, Amendment No. 4 and the Lanterns Planned Development Zoning Regulations, Amendment No. 4 (Second Reading - First Reading Approved on December 3, 2019 by a vote of 7-0) [Planned Development Amendment to Allow a Church Use, include Heckendorf Property in The Lanterns PD and establish a Master Sign Plan] (located south of Crystal Valley Parkway and Heckendorf Ranch and west of Crystal Valley Ranch) (Town of Castle Rock Project #PDP18-0003)

 

Executive Summary

 

Town Council considered this proposal on December 3, 2019 and voted 7-0 to approve, on first reading.  There was no public comment.

 

Planning Commission considered this zoning amendment at a public hearing held on May 23, 2019.  One person addressed the Commission with concerns about the additional traffic generated by the church use.  The Commission voted 5-0 to recommend to Town Council approval of the Lanterns Major Planned Development (PD) Amendment, as proposed.

 

Since the Planning Commission hearing, a draft amendment to the Lanterns Development Agreement (DA) has been completed and this proposed zoning amendment may now move forward for Town Council’s consideration.  The additional DA obligations are summarized in this report; however, Town Council will not act on the DA amendment until the second reading of this zoning amendment, anticipated to be scheduled for Tuesday, December 17, 2019.

 

The key elements of this proposed amendment to the Lanterns PD include:

 

                     Creation of a new 5-acre Planning Use Area (PA 7A),

                     Addition of Place of Worship as a permitted land use in PA 7A, only,

                     Absorption of the 5.2-acre lot located at Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard into the Lanterns PD (PA 14), and

                     Establishment of a master sign plan for the Lanterns PD.

 

The Lanterns is a Planned Development (PD) that was annexed to the Town of Castle Rock in 2002.  The site is located south of Crystal Valley Parkway and the Heckendorf Ranch PD and west of the Crystal Valley Ranch PD (Attachment A).  The Lanterns PD zoning allows 1,200 single-family units; 536 units offered as traditional homes and 664 offered as age-restricted units.  A total of 436.7 acres; 51% of the site, are designated as open space and public land (PLD) under the current zoning. 

 

It is important to note that this proposed PD amendment does not:

 

                     Increase the maximum number of dwelling units allowed in the Lanterns,

                     Introduce new housing types,

                     Eliminate the traditional and age-restricted planning areas,

                     Reduce the Public Land and Public Open Space dedications, nor

                     Add or remove any uses currently permitted on the lot to be incorporated into the Lanterns PD. 

 

All staff comments have been addressed through the review process.  There are no outstanding external review comments.  This proposal includes development standards that are consistent with the currently approved Lanterns PD zoning and the Town criteria.

 

Budget Impact

 

This PD amendment has no significant budget impact to the Town.  Standard building permit and use tax fees will be collected for development of PA 7A and PA 14, and for sign permits.

 

Planning Commission Recommendation

 

Planning Commission voted 5-0 to recommend to Town Council approval of the proposed major amendment to the Lanterns Plan Development.

 

Town Council Action

 

Town Council voted 7-0 to approve the PD amendment, as proposed, on first reading.

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the ordinance as introduced by title on second and final reading.
