MinutesPAZ Draft Nflnutes August S, 1993 AGENDA ITEM.. NQ~ 3: Consideration of a pre 'lvminarY plat for the Pershing Park Subdivision. (93-30'~ City. Planner Kee presented the staff report and .stated that there. were two ::final plats.: approved for the subject property in the .past. Neither plat was ever filed and the property has remained vacant. The applicant is proposing, with this preliminary pla , to change the s reet configuration. The previous plats provided for access from Thomas Street through this property via Hawthorne Street to .Holleman. This: replat does not provide for than connection but instead provides. a cul-de-sac. There is existing platted right-of way in the adjacent subdivision where this connection was to be made. The street was never built in this right-of-way but was to be done with the development; of the subject property. With this replat and the lack of connection, there is a .lot in the adjacent .subdivision that will be land locked and without access.. Staff feels, and has confirmation from the City's legal department,: that .this applicant has the responsibility of the former developer in providing that access to the :affected lot. Thin access should be-constructed or guaranteed with the. final plat of this property. Staff has only preliminary floodway-line information at this time. Final design information will be important in determining the location of easements and calculation of developable property.:.. during the final plat process (property within the flaodway is not developable). Several complaints have been received, regarding the sanitary sewer' system in this area, and the appropriateness of .connecting additional homes to the lines. Approximately two years ago, the twelve inch line which is .proposed to serve this project, was repaired and now operates well within capacity. .During the week of July 26, 1993, the six inch line was inspected via video .and found to be in need of cleaning and related. minor maintenance. The required cleaning .will be addressed as part of the City's normal .maintenance program. Staff .recommended. approval of the preliminary plat: with presubmission conference comments. Chairperson Hawthorne informed the audience that he public Would be allowed to speak on this item .even though a public hearing was not scheduled. Charles L. Boyd of 91o Pershing Street.informed the Commission that he has resided at this address for twenty- eight .years. He expressed concern of the sewer capacity in the area. Since 1989, Mr. Boyd has called the City on four different occasions in ;which raw sewage was draining into... Bee Creek. The last time this drainage occurred was this past spring. Mr. Boyd stated that his main concern is the public health especially with the number of children who play around the creek. The City has said that they will take care of the. problem; however, there is nothing in writing:.guaranteeing the residents that the existing .problem will be solved or that the future development will not add to that problem. Mr. Boyd also expressed concern about overall drainage in the area. There are currently many trees and brush in Bee Creek that impede.. the flow of water .causing adjacent residences to flood. Garland Cannon of 805 Hawthorne informed the Commission that. he has resided at this address for twenty-seven years. With the past recent rains, his. house has almost flooded due to the lack of adequate drainage in the area. Mr. Cannon stated that seventeen additional houses in the area will only .cause. more drainage- and sewage problems than currently exist. Ailene Kuvleski of 804 Hawthorne approached 'the Commission and expressed concern of the current sewer capabilities in the neighborhood. Before the 12" line, was repaired., she had sewage back up in her home. Ms. Kuvleski also stated that some residents in the neighborhood had trouble with -sewage backing up in their homes this past spring. Bruce Treybig of 912 Pershing informed the. Commission that.-his home has nearly flooded twice,. once in 1971 and once in ..1988. Since that time, the City has built a drainage ditch that helps the problem;:. however, Bee Creek :needs to be kept clean so that drainage can flow ;into the creek and. away from the homes,. Mr. Treybig also expressed concern of the sewer capacity-in the area and the negative impacts of the proposed development. -Carl Erdman of 902 Pershing approached the Commission and stated that. he has resided at this address for seven . years. He expressed concern of the drainage and sewage problems' in the neighborhood. Mr. Erdman stated that he does not have a lot of confidence in that the maintenance issues .will be taken care of with this new development. ~c~Z Draft Mr'nutes August 5, .1993 Page Z Patricia Cannon. of 805 Hawthorn approached the Commission and suggested that a retaining wall be required along Bee Creek to prevent future flooding. waste Water Operations Manager Lawrence -Carter approached he Commission and stated that the majority of the .sewage problems mentioned previously occurred ..prior:, to the: 12° line being repaired. Since that fine .was repaired, there ..have -been no records of stoppages in the line; however, there have been... stoppages in the property owner's service lines... Most of the sewage problems stem from the 6" line in the area. Staff videoed that line and found same root growth :and is currently.. working 'to correct that problem. • If the maintenance does not solve the problem, the City will. look at replacing that line. The. 17 houses ..proposed with the Pershing Park development will .all tie into the 12" ine, not the G" line. The 12" line currently runs at approximately one quarter capacity. Mrs. Charles L. Boyd. expressed concern with the rain flooding the sewer ,line. and still causing raw sewage to drain into the .creek. Charles L. Boyd stated that he wants some commitment in writing .from the City that they will -come out .and fix any. problems that occur. Chairperson Hawthorne. informed .the audience that. staff reviews the .impact tudies prepared by an engineer that address the utility impacts on the surrounding developments. As best as staff can determine with current technology, the studies show that the current capacity levels-are adequate; .:however, no one can guarantee the surrounding property owners 1.00°~o that they will not be .effected by the new development. The.. drainage ordinance requires the developer to maintain their run-off and drainage-on their property. The developer cannot increase.: the.. amount of drainage from his ..property. and flood adjacent .properties. However, ..the City cannot penalize this developer for the existing problems of the neighborhood. Znobia Sepe of 800 Hawthorn informed. the Commission that water has. come over the banks of Bee Creek five times this year alone: City .Engineer David Pullen approached the Commission: and informed. the .audience that .many of he flooding problems in the area are the :result of previous development practices. When this neighborhood was developed, it was desirable to build homes closer to the creek; however, due to problems -with flooding, ..this is no longer a common practice.. Given that many of the homes in this area are located within the floodplain and many have low: finished. floor elevations, the City cannot make any guarantees. that the existing homes -will not flood. The current drainage:. ordinance does not allow the developer` to increase the existing drainage discharge from the property. The developer is required to facilitate all of the increased.. drainage; however, he cannot be -held responsible for existing problems in the. area. Charles L Boyd suggested that the trees be'removed from the creek to allow the .creek to hold more water. City Engineer Pullen stated that he will work with internal operations s aff and pass on the information. that was discussed in this meeting; Chairperson Hawthorne stated that the .Commission cannot address maintenance issues; however, the problems in -the. area are a concern to everyone. Tl~e issues discussed: in tonight's meeting should be passed along and followed up by the appropriate operations staff. Commissioner Gribou moved to recommend approval of the _prelminary :,,plate fore the Pershing. Park ...subdivision with. all staff and audience comments including those that pertain to the location of the floodplain, .access to lot 9, and drainage and sewage concerns. Commissioner Marion seconded the motion. Commissioner Hall questioned the applicant as to the homeowners association and their involvement in maintaining all common areas,. . ~'~Z Draft Minutes August S, 1993 Page 3 Engineer Earl Havel of Garrett Engineering. approached the :Commission, and stated that the developer is not present to .give the details: of that homeowners association agreement. However,.. he does know hat there will be x an association established to maintain -the common and detention areas, The drainage easements, that-lead- to Bee Creek will probably be maintained by the individual property owners. The homes that will back up to Bee Creek will be constructed so that the rear of the home will be on stilts- to minimize the impact on the existing floodplan. Garland Cannon 'suggested that the developer look at the .capacity of the bridge and possibly increase the size to allow more water to flow through and decrease the possibility of flooding in he area. ~~~ Earl Havel stated Ghat if the` ca aei of the brill e structure is increased, flooding problems.. will be created p tY g ~~ downstream r ~~ Chair erson Hawthorne uestoned staff as to the lacement of .fences and the effects of the ro osed fence p q p pP k ordinance. He stated that fences can be addressed at the time of final plat and written into the homeowners association agreement that fences not be .allowed in the creek.. `~ E The original, motion to recommend: approval of the preliminary plat of Pershing Park, with staff recommendations and public comments, passed unopposed (7 - 0), _ / I - ,i i~ ~:~ "r~ ~,.i ',~{ it E~ - !1 i+ f Y f f~ E '; l :' '- f a ~, ~.. ~. ~~ PROJECT REVIEW Co~tMt'i~'EE ::..REPORT ~; ~~ Jul 22, 1993 Y T0: James L.
