Title
Resolution to Approve Flagstar Bank Site Plan, 3600 Plymouth Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 1 Nay)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a bank building with a drive-thru facility.

Petition Summary:

* The Site Plan proposes to divide off a 1-acre parcel at the northeast corner of the existing Holiday Inn hotel site and construct a 2,840 sq ft bank with a drive thru facility and 16 parking spaces. A special exception use for the drive thru facility was approved by the Planning Commission on March 17, 2015.

* The petitioner addressed issues raised by Planning Commission by revising the site layout, with the proposed northern entrance drive moved back to its original location to save the 22-inch landmark Pin Oak tree located on the southwest corner of this site. The internal loop driveway will continue to connect to a new off-site curb cut to the south to facilitate westbound traffic exiting this site from the service drive to Green Road. The Traffic Engineer has concluded there should be adequate queuing for vehicles entering the site.

* The Zoning Board of Appeals granted a variance at its March 25, 2015 meeting to allow a drive-thru facility to be located between the proposed bank building and a street. The US-23 on ramp is considered a street as it is public right-of-way.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of March 17, 2015, recommended approval of this request.
