Title
Resolution to Approve Hampton Inn Planned Project Site Plan and Development Agreement Amendment, 2910 Jackson Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 8 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Attached is a resolution to approve the Hampton Inn Planned Project Site Plan and Development Agreement. Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a new 100 room hotel building.

Petition Summary:

· The Planned Project Site Plan proposes a new Hampton Inn hotel building with 51,608 usable square feet and 100 bedrooms on this 8.8 acre site. There is an existing Clarion hotel on the site. A site plan was approved in 2008 and a foundation poured for a Hampton Inn hotel, but the work was not completed and the site plan expired, necessitating a new site plan submission. There will be 337 parking spaces for the two hotels.
· The petitioner is requesting a planned project modification to increase the maximum front setback requirement of 50 feet to allow a 72.4 foot setback from the north property line fronting I-94. When the foundation was poured in 2008, there was no maximum front setback requirement. Under recent amendments to the Zoning Ordinance, on a site with more than one front property line, only one is required to comply with the maximum front setback requirement. Since the existing foundation does not comply on any of the three fronts, a planned project modification is being requested. The petitioner indicates there is a public benefit provided by using existing infrastructure.
· A first amendment to the existing development agreement has been prepared to address revised footing drain disconnects and winter maintenance of the off-site portion of the sidewalk.
· The petitioner addressed issues raised by Planning Commission by improving pedestrian circulation on the site.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of July 2, 2013 recommended approval of this request.
