• Mr. Kelly G. Frye with Meridian General Contracting, Inc., agent for the property owner, and Mr. Richard Schappacher, P.E. with Schappacher Engineering, LLC, Engineer of Record, are requesting approval of a Rezone and Preliminary Site Plan for 61 multi-family residential units.

• The site is located in the RES-6 (Residential – 6 dwelling units per gross acre) Future Land Use Category (FLUC).

• The project proposes a minimum of 25% of its units (16 units) to be designated as affordable, as such, the project is eligible to request a density bonus from the Board of County Commissioners. The applicant has requested this density bonus for the project.

   o Gross residential density exceeding 4.5 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) in the RES-6 FLUC.

The project provides internal sidewalks adjacent to parking areas that connect the parking areas to the apartment structures.  A network of internal sidewalks are provided throughout the development tying the residential units to the amenity areas and service areas such as the mail kiosk.

• Recreational amenities will be provided on 1.26-acres of property and will include a clubhouse with a resort-style entry pool.
• Approximately 5.86 acres (68%) are proposed for open space (±2.14 acres, or 25% is required).
