PUBLIC HEARINGS AND ACTION ITEMS

Regular Agenda Items Z-008-18

Application of, John Pitstick, on Behalf of Our Country Homes for a Zoning Change request from “M-1” Industrial to “PD-Residential Mixed” consisting of four different zoning districts being “PD-SF-1” Residential being approximately 6.55 acres, “PD-SF-2” Residential being approximately 16.26 acres, “PD-SFA” Residential being approximately 15.57 acres, “PD-OS” Open Space being approximately 3.68 acres for a total of 42.06 acres of land on Lot A of the Springlake Industrial Park Addition, locally known as 5100 Springlake Parkway.

Staff presented and clarified the request.

Chair Adam asked the applicant to come to the podium.

John Pitstick said this project would be a five to seven-year project. The HOA would maintain the property for both the yards and exteriors of the structures. We do not want anyone to paint a unique color on the exteriors. The highest density would be sixplexes. When the roofs are replaced, they will all be done at the same time. There will be a four-foot sidewalk to Denton Highway. The pavilion we intend to build will be for future events both private and public. There will be a five-foot iron fence along Glenview and there will be no parking there. There will be a six-foot wooden fence along the railroad tracks. All the utilities will be buried.

Commissioner Chapman said thank you for bringing this project to Haltom City.

HOA not concern now. However, 350-400 units with nine (9) entry/exits is a concern for traffic impact.

Commissioner Bowman asked about HOA management company. Mr. Pitstick said First Service is the HOA management company.

Commissioner Bowman asked about security. Mr. Pitstick said there will be plenty of illumination with street lights.

Commissioner Bowman asked about demographics. Mr. Pitstick said many young couples and retirees will be primary demographic.

Commissioner Bowman asked about pricing. Mr. Pitstick said low 200's to mid 300's.

Commissioner Chapman said we can anticipate approximately 600 vehicles for this development. How will access light be dealt with when turning is already horrific. Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said they will have to do a TIA with the plat.

Commissioner Chapman said a careful look needs to take place at both the increased vehicle traffic along with the increased foot traffic. We may need to look at ways to slow traffic in this area.

Chair Adam opened the Public Hearing (8:09PM)

Jake Fields, family owns 5321 Glenview, concerned about how this project could impact their property and what the notice means. Ms. Batchelor said it won’t change their zoning and the notice is to show who was notified.

Chair Adam closed the Public Hearing (8:11PM) Discussion by the Commission

Commissioner Chapman discussed concerns and possible crosswalks and traffic study. Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize reiterated there will be a Traffic Impact Analysis.

Commissioner Hilliard asked about how many entries. Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said there will be multiple.
