enclosed garage spaces. The project would also be able to utilize other adjacent parking lots found in the surrounding area.
6. The project includes two attached trash enclosures at the northwest and southwest corners of the building. These enclosures are integrated into the building by wing wall extensions that will be covered in tan stucco to match the building. The gates are oriented to face west, away from adjacent street frontages.
Mechanical units will be placed on the roof and will be shielded by the parapet wall.
7.In total, ten new street trees (Magnolia) will be planted along Barton, 57th Street and 57th Terrace. Based on total street frontage, nine trees are required. Because the remainder of the site adjacent to foundation walls will be zeroscaped with decorative river rock, no additional open space trees are required. Size of the trees provided meets minimum requirements of the zoning ordinance.
Terrain on the site will require construction of a segmental block retaining wall along the west property line, adjacent to the new alleyway. Height of this wall will be one to six feet, and the wall will be colored buff to match the building. As mentioned earlier in the rezoning factors, the applicant will install a solid wood privacy fence at the top of this wall to further screen adjacent properties to the west. Height of the fence will range from 4 to 6 feet and will increase in height as the retaining wall decreases in height.
8.The site grading, and erosion and sediment control measures required for this development shall be designed according to the standards in the Shawnee Manual of Technical Specifications and Design Criteria.
The conceptual grading plan shown for this development appears to be in substantial compliance with City standards. Any design issues discovered during the review of the site development plans must be resolved prior to the issuance of a building permit.
The applicant is responsible for submitting a rough grading plan as an integral part of the site development plans submitted for a building permit. The grading plan must accurately show contours of the existing ground elevations and details of area drainage and terrain, including identification of areas with existing or proposed gradients greater than 33 percent. The plan must also show contours of the finished ground elevations to be achieved by the proposed grading activities plus all grading within public rights-of-way, and typical cross-sections of all proposed drainage channels and swales. Existing and proposed contours must be shown extending at least 200 feet
