ITEM VII. PUBLIC HEARINGS
Item VII.-C. – Public Hearing on a Conceptual Development Plan for an Addition to the Existing Building at 5200 Harry Truman Drive.
City Planner Sara Copeland explained to the Board the applicant’s desire to expand the existing building on the property where O’Reilly’s Auto Parts business is located. She indicated that the area was zoned as Planned District (PD), which required an approved Conceptual Development Plan (CDP) from the Board. The intent for the expansion was to acquire additional storage space for the business. She pointed out that additional parking spaces would be added to the second parcel, which required a parking agreement, which had been submitted by the applicant. She also indicated that landscaping was proposed to be added to north of the property. Ms. Copeland added that no one had appeared to speak at the Planning Commission public hearing, but that she had received one phone call inquiry. The Planning Commission had approved the CDP unanimously, and at the suggestion from staff, no representative from the applicant was present at tonight’s public hearing.
In response to Mayor Dennis, Ms. Copeland said that several parking spaces were required on the second parcel as long as O’Reilly’s business existed.
Mayor Dennis closed the Public Hearing.
Item VII.-D. – Public Hearing on the Missouri 150 Highway Sustainable Development Corridor Plan.
City Planner Sara Copeland said the purpose of the plan was to establish consistency in the corridor and to achieve the vision of a unique regional destination to attract visitors and new residents to the corridor. She reported that the plan was divided into several components: a Framework Plan, adopted by the Board in June, 2012; an Implementation Plan; Design Guidelines; and the Corridor Context. She explained the types of land use for the plan as she showed the map in a PowerPoint presentation to the Board.
Ms. Copeland summarized the Implementation Plan, which included the following topics: Achieving the Vision, Short-Term Strategies, Guiding and Funding Development, Development Policies, Management and Organization, and Preliminary Fiscal Overview.
Under the topic of Achieving the Vision, she noted that the City needs to raise the bar for development, implement a long-term infrastructure program, and build high-quality density. Under Short-term Strategies of the plan, she indicated that initial strategies included creating a destination at Truman Corners and creating a place at the west subarea. Other strategies were to complete the South Frontage Road, identify and codify key easements, build achievable open space and gateway components, update the Capital Improvements Plan, and amend the zoning map.
Under the topic of Guiding Funding Development were local revenue tools, other sources of public funding, and targeted funding strategies (beautification fund and a corridor infrastructure fund). Other plan components listed were development policies, management and organization, preliminary fiscal overview and next steps.
Ms. Copeland explained that the design standards and guidelines would not supersede the zoning ordinance, but would establish higher design requirements. Key sections included the site plan accomplishing the layout. The architecture was described as achieving high quality and texture for new buildings. She added that there was a very detailed signage section for the area.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing for the plan on October 3, 2012, at which there was one public speaker. She concluded by saying that the Planning Commission had adopted the plan and recommended it for further adoption by the Board.
In response to Alderman Maloney, Ms. Copeland indicated that the public could access the plan on the City’s website (www.grandview.org) and any hard copies needed would be accommodated as well as possible.
Mayor Dennis said he had talked with southern metro elected officials who had indicated that there had been only spot development in the area in the past, but this plan was good for the future and good to have in place.
Mayor Dennis closed the Public Hearing.
