Resolution to Approve 907 & 913 S. Main Street Site Plan and Development Agreement, (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 6 Yeas and 0 Nays)


Approval of this resolution will allow for demolition of the two existing houses and combining both lots to construct a 6-unit, 36 bedroom rental complex.


Petition Summary:


                     The Site Plan proposes to combine 907 & 913 S. Main street, demolish the existing structures and propose a 6-unit, 36 bedroom total complex for rent on this 0.32-acre site.  A variance from planting street trees along S. Main is required from the Zoning Board of Appeals.


                     A development agreement has been prepared to upgrade the water main leading to this site.


                     The petitioner addressed issues raised by Planning Commission by agreeing to add bicycle parking spaces to address parking concerns.  This proposal meets minimum parking requirements of 1.5 spaces/unit.    An AAATA bus stop is close to this site.


The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of 12/1/20, recommended approval of this request.
