Staff presented and clarified the request.

The legal notice regarding the public hearing was published in the October 6, 2019 Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Chair Adam asked about the drainage.

Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said there is a seventy-two inch (72") drain line that runs north and south at the east side of property and flows into Knapp Lake by Springlake. Mr. Van Niewenhuize said this site from a drainage standpoint is in pretty good shape.

Commissioner Stallings asked about the traffic light status.

Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said eventually with buildout there will be monitoring of traffic impact and crosswalks will be at Springlake and possibly Haltom. Currently, the traffic counts do not justify a traffic signal at Haltom and Springlake.

Commissioner Lindgren asked about measuring traffic with train.

Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said they don't use the old-style traffic counters but use a data collector that accounts for speed, time and weather.

Commissioner Lindgren asked City to be conscious of ingress/egress at Library across the street on Haltom Road.

Mr. Van Nieuwenhuize said that is an excellent observation and will take that into account.

Chair Adam asked the applicant to come to the podium.

John Pitstick, 700 West Harwood, said they have done their traffic impact analysis. Mr. Pitstick said they are in the process of finishing up their preliminary plans and are getting ready to submit. They have met with Oncor. The project will be a total of five (5) phases. The first phase of the project will be 110-111 lots. He said they will be doing a crosswalk at the library and northside of Springlake Parkway.

Commissioner Teague asked how many bedrooms in the units. Mr. Pitstick said 2-4 bedrooms.

Commissioner Teague asked about the price point. Mr. Pitstick said lower $200K to upper $300K. Commissioner Beaty asked about the parking.

Mr. Pitstick said all units will have garages. Smaller ones will have single attached garage and one parking space behind/tandem. Larger ones will have double attached garages and two (2) parking spaces behind. All garage access will be from alley ways. There will be additional street parking throughout and on Springlake Parkway.

Commissioner Hantz asked about the timeline for construction.

Mr. Pitstick said that is hard to determine. There are several factors since they are building in five (5) phases. Not sure what the consumer market will be, whether it will be empty nesters, millennials, etc.

Commissioner Teague asked if this is an Our Country Homes development.

Mr. Pitstick said Beaten Path, LLC will be constructing the improvements and Our Country Homes Lifestyle Division will be the builder.
