Title
Resolution to Approve Near North Site Plan with Planned Project Modifications and Development Agreement, 700 North Main Street (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 9 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of 22 townhouses.

Petition Summary:

* This development project includes two petitions: a petition to rezone the site from PUD (Near North Planned Unit Development) to R4C (Multiple-Family Dwelling) and a site plan with planned project modifications.
* The petition to rezone has been submitted to Council separately.
* The site plan proposes to construct 22 townhouses.
* The petitioner is requesting a planned project modification to increase the maximum height to 33 feet 6 inches (from 30 feet), decrease the south side setback to 15 feet (from 19 feet 3 inches), and decrease the rear setback to 22 feet (from 47 feet 3 inches). These modifications will enable increased open space, increased setback, and pedestrian orientation.
* A development agreement has been prepared to address typical construction items as well as architectural elevations and roof mounted solar panels.
* The issues and comments expressed by Planning Commission following its first public hearing on November 17, 2020, such as additional renderings, solid waste/recycling operations, zoning history, analysis, and resident engagement, in the January 5, 2021 Planning Staff Report.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of January 5, 2021, recommended approval of this request.
