Title
Resolution to Approve Montgomery Building Site Plan, 210-216 South Fourth Avenue (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 9 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Attached is a resolution to approve the Montgomery Building Site Plan. Approval of this resolution will allow the construction of four new floors over the existing two-story building. Retail use is proposed for the ground floor, and floors two through six would contain 32 residential units. The building is located in the Main Street Historic District.

Petition Summary:

· The Site Plan proposes 32 residential units in a 21,100 square foot, four-story addition on top of an existing 17,270 square foot, two-story commercial building, which currently contains two retail tenants on the ground floor and office on the second floor. The third, fourth, and partial sixth floor are stepped back increasingly farther from Fourth Avenue.

· Approval of this site plan is subject to the disconnection of eight footing drains upstream of where the development flows connect to the High Level Trunkline prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy.

The Historic District Commission approved a Certificate of Appropriateness on September 12, 2013. The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of November 19, 2013, recommended approval of this request.
