08-0094R AS AMENDED
RESOLUTION DENYING A SPECIAL USE PERMIT TO A&L PROPERTIES FOR A 10,000 SQUARE
FOOT MEDICAL CLINIC.
BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:
RESOLVED, that the application for a special use permit filed by A&L
Development (FN 07153) for a 10,000 square foot medical clinic 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, but are not limited to:
(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 additional runoff in an area with existing runoff problems, which may further contribute to 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 08-0090 and denies the special use permit request for a 10,000 square foot
The Duluth city planning commission voted to approve this special use permit
following a public hearing held December 11, 2007 by a vote of 7-1-1.
Application received: October 30, 2007 Action deadline: February 28, 2008
