       ITEM NO. 2: Minutes of the regular meeting held September 26, 2005, were unanimously approved.  This was a City and extraterritorial item.

 

       ITEM NO. 3: Consent agenda:  (City)

 

(A)   Mr. Bob Dischinger with Evans Engineering, Inc., representing D. R. Horton, Inc., presented an application for final plat approval of Phase 1, Ingle Park Subdivision.  The property is located on the east side of Springwood Church Road approximately 1,500 feet north of Whitsett Park Road as shown on plans by Evans Engineering, Inc., dated October 4, 2005, and containing 70 lots.

 

(B)   Withdrawn by applicant.

 

(C)   Mr. Mark Reich with Alley, Williams, Carmen and King, Inc., representing Windsor Investments, LLC, presented an application for final plat approval of Phase 1, Section 2, Park Place Townhomes.  The property is located on the southwest corner of Whitsett Park Road and Springwood Church Road as shown on plans by Alley, Williams, Carmen and King, Inc., dated October 7, 2005, and containing eight lots.

 

Staff recommended approval of (A) contingent upon completion of street construction or the applicant posting proper surety with the City Engineering Department prior to recording the plat.  Staff also recommended approval of (C).

 

Commission Member ­­­­­Cobb made a motion to recommend approval of (A) with the contingency outlined by staff and recommended approval of (C).  Gordon Millspaugh seconded the motion.  The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of (A) contingent upon completion of street construction or the applicant posting proper surety with the City Engineering Department prior to recording the plat and to recommend approval of (C).

      

The Commission found that the plats as presented met all requirements of the Subdivision Regulations.

 

       ITEM NO. 4: Mr. Aden Stoltzfus with Fleming Engineering, representing Mr. C. Wayne York, Sr., presented an application to rezone from R-15, Residential District, to R-12, Residential District, the property located at 2863 Longpine Road approximately 650 feet northwest of Evergreen Lane and being as shown on Alamance County Tax Map 3-22D-21.

 

       This was a City item.

 

       Mr. Stoltzfus stated that the 20-acre tract to the rear of the property is already zoned R-12.

 

       Mr. Vern Schofield, 2719 Whiteoak Drive, questioned how many buildings would be constructed and would there be just one access to the property.  He stated that he had concerns with additional traffic.

 

       Mr. Stoltzfus stated that there was not a site plan available yet and that he was not sure what the development would look like.  He stated that once a site plan was developed, traffic concerns and patterns would be addressed.

 

       Planning Director Harkrader stated that if the developers combine the 20-acre tract (ACTM 3-22D-20) located to the rear of this property as part of a subdivision or if the developers otherwise subdivide the two properties in any way, the developers would have to submit a preliminary plan and a final plat and go through the approval process before the Commission as well as City Council.   He stated that  the only difference in R-15 and R-12 zoning is the density – R-12 zoning allowing 3 ½ units per acre with 3 units permitted in R-15.  He stated that the primary uses in R-15 and R-12 are basically the same.

 

       Commission Member Enoch asked if the developers would require approval for condominiums or townhomes.  Planning Director Harkrader stated that condominiums and townhomes would require a Special Use Permit in R-15 zoning, whereas they are permitted by right in R-12 zoning.  However, the developers would require approval if the property were to be subdivided.

 

       Commission Member Millspaugh asked how many acres were involved in the rezoning tonight and was told approximately 4.6 acres.

 

       Mr. Schofield asked where was the property located in conjunction with the trailer court.  Mr. Harkrader located the property in question on a map.

 

       Commission Member Cobb asked Mr. Johnny Wagoner, who was in the audience, if he had anything to do with the property.  Mr. Wagoner stated that he had a contract to purchase the property.  Mr. Cobb stated that Mr. Wagoner was a client of his and asked Planning Director Harkrader if this presented a conflict of interest.  Mr. Harkrader stated that it would not.

 

       Commission Member Franks asked if the only access to the 20-acre site was on Crouse Lane, and was told that it was.  Mr. Franks stated that he was concerned with traffic if the two sites were combined opening up traffic from Crouse Lane to Longpine Road. 

 

       Commission Member Millspaugh stated that he, too, had concerns with traffic. 

 

       Commission Chairman Byrd asked if rezoning signs had been put up on the property.

 

       Planning Director Harkrader stated that rezoning signs were put up last Monday or Tuesday.

 

       Commission Member Johnson asked if this was the City policy.  Mr. Harkrader stated that signs are usually put up about a week before the Commission meeting.

 

       Staff recommended approval of the request for rezoning on the basis that it would be an appropriate extension of existing R-12 in the area.

 

       Commission Member Millspaugh made a motion to recommend approval of the request for rezoning.  Paul Cobb seconded the motion.  The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the request for rezoning.

 

       The Commission found that the zoning change as requested would not adversely affect the adjoining property and would be in keeping with land use planning in the area.

 

       ITEM NO. 5: Mr. Johnny Brooks presented an application to rezone from R-9, Residential District, to CB, Conditional Business District, to allow parking that is associated with the commercial use on the balance of the property.  The property is located on the northeast corner of North Main Street and Highland Avenue as shown on Alamance County Tax Map 51-210-105.

 

       This was a City item.

 

       Mr. Brooks stated that he needed additional parking for his company and that he had spoken with adjoining property owners and they had no problem with his proposal.

 

       Commission Member Ware asked if there would be security lighting and was told that there would be.

 

       Commission Member Millspaugh inquired about the hours and type of business and was told regular business hours for the plumbing establishment.

 

       Commission Member Black asked what type of vehicles would utilize the parking lot.  Mr. Brooks stated that other than passenger vehicles, there would be service vehicles and possibly a dump truck.

 

       Staff recommended approval of the request for rezoning with the use and development conditions submitted by the petitioner.  Planning Director Harkrader stated that Mr. Brooks had already put up a chain link fence along the western property line and pointed out that there will be no outdoor storage.

 

       Commission Member Millspaugh made a motion to recommend approval of the request for rezoning with the use and development conditions submitted by the petitioner.  Paul Cobb seconded the motion.  The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the request for rezoning with the following use and development conditions submitted by the petitioner:

 

Use Condition

 

To allow a parking lot that is associated with the commercial use on the balance of the property.

 

Development Conditions

 

1.    Existing vegetation buffer to remain along the western property line.

 

2.    A six-foot chain link fence will be erected along the western property line.

 

       The Commission found that the zoning change as requested would not adversely affect the adjoining property and would be in keeping with land use planning in the area.

 

       ITEM NO. 6Staff presented proposed amendments to the Zoning Ordinance text pertaining to sign regulations.

 

       Planning Director Harkrader stated that the amendments will clarify the sign regulations and that staff recommended approval of the amendments.

 

       Commission Member Cobb made a motion to recommend approval of the amendments. Bob Ware seconded the motion.  The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the following amendments:
