Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Rezoning of 2.01 acres from Hoover Mansion PUD (Planned Unit Development District) to University Bank Revised PUD, 2015 Washtenaw Avenue (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 0 Nays) (Ordinance No. ORD-11-24)
Memorandum
Approval of this ordinance will amend the PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning for this property that was originally approved in 1978. Approval of this ordinance will also create supplemental regulations for the revised PUD, which was approved prior to the current PUD zoning requirements.

Petition Summary:

? Supplemental regulations were drafted in association with the PUD Site Plan petition for a new parking lot on the site. No specific public benefits were articulated in the original Hoover Mansion PUD; the proposed public benefits for the University Bank Revised PUD include: increased job opportunities within the City as a result of the increased number of employees that can be accommodated with the new parking; the addition of a new sidewalk connection and bicycle parking to support transportation alternatives; and, parking lot landscaping and screening mitigation in excess of the minimum required.

? The Site Plan petition proposes construction of a 14-space surface parking lot, to be set back 24-feet from the eastern property line. A continuous six-foot tall wall is proposed along the eastern and southern property lines screening the parking lot from adjacent neighbors. Two landmark trees and 19 woodland trees are proposed to be removed for the drive and parking lot with mitigation trees in excess of the requirement to be planted throughout the site.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of October 4, 2011, recommended approval of this request.
