Background Discussion

1. Mr. Bob Lombardo, P.E. of Lombardo, Foley & Kolarik, agent for the owner, is requesting approval of an amended Preliminary Site Plan and stipulations previously approved by Ordinance No. PDR-03-59(Z)(P). 

The originally requested amendments were: to increase the maximum number of multi-family residential units from 201 to 207; to clarify that Stipulation No. 11, the emergency access point onto Palma Sola Boulevard, can also be utilized for construction traffic access; to revise Stipulation #23 to allow the construction of an observation deck on the west side of Palma Sola Boulevard, the deck will not allow the mooring of boats; and increasing the height of Buildings #1 and #9 to 40’-2½” to be consistent with the other 21 buildings in the development and amending stipulations for compliance with current codes.

Subsequent to the January 15, 2015 Planning Commission meeting, the Applicant informed staff that they no longer were seeking to amend Stipulation No. 11.  Staff has revised the Staff Report and the Ordinance.  The only revision to Stipulation No. 11 is the update the language “Transportation Director” to Public Works Director.
2. The 31.24± acre project is located at 3410 77th Street West.  The 0.2 acres located west of Palma Sola Boulevard is in the RES-6 (Residential – 6 dwelling units per acre) and the remaining property is located in the RES-16 (Residential – 16 dwelling units per acre) Future Land Use Categories. RES-16 allows consideration of suburban or urban residential uses; the project gross density is 6.63 du/ac and the net density is 10.94 du/ac.

3. Special Approvals:  Partially located within the Coastal High Hazard Area and a Perennial Stream (Palma Sola Creek).  These Special Approvals were approved with the previous application and the proposed revisions do not affect staff support of these Special Approval requests.

4. The project provides 12.12 acres of open space (38.8%); exceeding the requirements of the Planned Development District.

5. Project access is from 75th Street West and an emergency access on Palma Sola Boulevard.

6. On January 15, 2015, by a vote of 6 – 1, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Details on the nay vote and a public comment summary are in the staff report attached to this memo.

7. On February 5, 2015, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Board of County Commissioners continued the public hearing to April 2, 2015. 

8. On April 2, 2015, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Board of County Commissioners continued the public hearing to May 7, 2015.
