RESOLUTION DENYING A SPECIAL USE PERMIT TO A&L PROPERTIES FOR A RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY.

BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:

     RESOLVED, that the application for a special use permit filed by A&L Development (FN 07154) for a residential care facility is denied based on the following findings [to be determined by city council]:
    (a)   The development plan does not sufficiently meet the criteria for the designated sensitive land overlay in that it does not adequately address the principles of conservation design, which include:
           (1)  Flexibility in site design and lot size;
           (2)  Thoughtful protection and management of natural areas;
           (3)  Reduction of impervious surface areas;
           (4)  Sustainable stormwater management;
     (b)  Failure to address these principles may result in runoff in an area with existing runoff problems, which may contribute to further negative environmental impacts;
     (c)  The adjoining neighborhood property values will be negatively impacted;
     (d)   It will foster a pattern of random development in a R-1-b zone.

 

 

 


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution is a counter action to Resolution 08-0087 and denies the special use permit request for a residential care facility.
