Memorandum
Attached is a resolution to approve the Packard Square Site Plan and Development Agreement. Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a mixed use development project consisting of apartments and retail stores.

Petition Summary:

· A development agreement has been prepared to address off-site improvements such as sanitary sewer mitigation, park contribution, and street tree escrow.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of March 15, 2011, recommended approval of this request, subject to the approval of variances related to three curb cuts. On March 23, 2011, the Zoning Board of Appeals approved the requested curb cut variances.
