Title

Resolution to Approve Shell Gas Station PUD Site Plan and Landscape Modification, 2679 Ann Arbor-Saline Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 8 Yeas and 0 Nays)

Memorandum

Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a 4,740 square foot two-story addition on the south side of the existing building to increase the total floor area to 8,820 square feet.

 

Petition Summary:

 

                     The Site Plan proposes construction of a 4,740 square foot two-story addition on the south side of the building for a new overall floor area of 8,820-square feet.

 

                     The curb cuts off Ann Arbor-Saline Road and W. Eisenhower Boulevard remain the same, leading to 15 newly proposed parking spaces fronting W. Eisenhower.   The revised total of 38 parking spaces includes 12 spaces used for the gas pumps.  This new parking area facing W. Eisenhower requires a ROW buffer area 15 feet wide with a 30 inch high wall to screen the fueling stations.   The petitioner is requesting a landscape modification to provide a 10 feet wide buffer with a 30 inch high berm. 

 

                     The petitioner addressed issues raised by Planning Commission by planting more salt tolerant species for the right-of-way landscaping.  A 4-foot high fence has been proposed along the rear building addition.  

 

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of August 7, 2019, recommended approval of this request.
