Title
Resolution to Approve St. Francis of Assisi Site Plan, 2150 Frieze Avenue (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 8 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a two-story, 14,570-square foot parish addition.

Petition Summary:

* The Site Plan proposes to construct a 2-story, 14,570 sq. ft parish addition on this 10.6 acre site. The site is zoned R1B, Single-Family Residential, and church uses and expansion requires Special Exception Use approval in a residential district. A landscape modification from installing the required parking lot bioretention is also requested. A variance from planting street trees along E. Stadium Blvd. is requested from the Zoning Board of Appeals as the width to plant within the public right-of-way is too narrow. Street trees are proposed to planted on private property instead.

* The petitioner addressed issues raised by Planning Commission by agreeing construction hours will be on weekdays during daylight hours.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of 12/15/20, recommended approval of this request.
