quality development that Lakepointe subdivision has provided thus far, and will allow for development in a manner that will proceed quickly. The coach home concept has been slow to develop, and change to single family homes is reasonable.
6.The rezoning itself should have little, if any, detrimental effect upon surrounding properties. The rezoning request and the proposed density shown on the preliminary development plan conform to the Comprehensive Plan. The site design is consistent with previous phases of the Lakepointe development and is compatible with existing and future development patterns in this area. The proposed revision to the preliminary development plan of changing from duplex units to single family homes significantly reduces the density in this immediate area.
Denial of the request would not appear to benefit the health and welfare of the community. The proposed development is compatible with future development patterns that are expected to occur in the area. The unified plan of the Lakepointe development creates a pleasing low-density residential environment and compliments the City’s goals for development in this area.
PRELIMINARY DEVELOPMENT PLAN REVIEW
1.The 21.38-acre property is currently zoned PMR with a request to rezone to PMR for the development of 65 single-family lots and 3 duplex lots. The plan contains two tracts that will be owned and maintained by the Lakepointe Homes Association. These tracts are intended as landscaped open space tracts to provide a buffer between Clear Creek Parkway and lots that are adjacent to Clear Creek Parkway. The applicant has recorded Homes Association documents and Covenant and Restriction documents for previous phases of the Lakepointe development. However, addendums to the Homes Association documents and the Restrictions and Covenants of ownership documents incorporating the lots of this phase into the documents of record for the previously recorded plats shall be submitted with the application of the final plat for this phase.
2.All bulk requirements of the PMR district have been satisfied. The 30 foot peripheral boundary has been provided where required along the south and west subdivision boundary, and although the peripheral boundary has been met at the rear of Lots 417-419, the preliminary development plan shall be revised to show the peripheral boundary in this area. A revised preliminary development plan shall be submitted prior to consideration of the rezoning by the Governing Body.
The three duplex lots- range in size from 10,917 square feet to 15,010 square feet, while the single family lots range in size from 8,241 square feet to 16,032 square feet. Minimum lot frontages of 60 feet have been provided and front yard setbacks of 30 feet are shown. Approximately 73 percent (50 of 68) of the lots have frontages exceeding 70 feet in width. Side yard setbacks shall be a minimum of six (6) feet as indicated on the plan, and previously approved for Lakepointe
