Title

Resolution to Approve Bristol Ridge Site Plan and Development Agreement, 2750 Pontiac Trail (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 8 Yeas and 0 Nays)

Memorandum

Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of 69 townhouse dwelling units accessed from one drive off Pontiac Trail.

 

Petition Summary:

 

                     The Site Plan proposes combining 3 parcels totaling 7-acres and developing 69 townhouse dwelling units accessed from one drive off Pontiac Trail.  A mid-quality woodland located along the eastern portion of the site remains undisturbed. 

 

                     A development agreement has been prepared to make a $43,000 Parks contribution prior to issuance of certificates of occupancy for improvements to Huron Highlands, Cloverdale, Olsen or Leslie Parks. 

 

                     A variance was granted from the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) on February 27, 2019 from the required 138 parking spaces as this zoning designation, R4A (Multiple-Family Dwelling District) requires 2 parking spaces/dwelling.   The proposed site layout provides 94 legal parking spaces in garages and surface spaces falling short of the minimum required by 44 spaces.  The petitioner included 34 tandem parking spaces in some of the garages along with 69 driveway parking spaces bringing the revised total to 197 parking spaces. 

 

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of February 5, 2019, recommended approval of this request.
