MinutesD~°aft P&Z Minutes December 7, 1995 AGENDA ITEM NO. 5: .Consideration of a final plat for the Edelweiss Estates Phase 10-A subdivision of 16 single family lots and the. extension of Mint Avenue; also includes a revised Master Plan for the entire subdivision. (95-213) Graduate Civil Engineer Homeyer presented the staff report and stated that the revised Master Plan incorporates the Rock Prairie Estates into Edelweiss Estates so they function as one name, Edelweiss Estates. The applicant has had numerous discussions with the staff regarding the extension of Rock Prairie Road. It is their desire to build Rock Prairie through to Wellborn this next year but does not wish to "tie" this plat to the construction of that road. The development agreement executed on January 18, 1993 between the City of College Station and Begonia Corporation states "Begonia agrees and understands that City will not approve a final plat for any phase of Rock Prairie Estates until Begonia completes the extension of Rock Prairie Road from the eastern boundary of the Begonia property to Wellborn Road". Although the applicant is requesting approval of a final plat of a phase of Rock Prairie Estates, staff believes that these sixteen lots, which will take access from Mint Avenue, should not mandate the extension of Rock Prairie Road. Instead, staff recommended that this requirement be waived for Phase 10-A and be imposed on any future phase north of Rock Prairie Road. Staff is encouraging the Rock Prairie extension and has been working with the developer toward a mutually agreeable monetary participation agreement. Staff recommended approval of the final plat and master development plan with the conditions identified by the Presubmission Conference and the removal of the requirement for Phase 10-A to extend Rock Prairie Road to Wellborn Road. Staff further recommended that the City enter into a development agreement at this time with the applicant establishing participation levels and construction timing of the Rock Prairie extension. Applicant Steve Arden approached the Commission and offered to answer any questions pertaining to the development. He stated that this plat is the first step in accelerating the construction of Rock Prairie Road. Mr. Arden stated that he anticipates Rock Prairie will be constructed very soon with or without the proposed 10-A development. Commissioner Smith moved to recommend approval of the final plat of Edelweiss Estates Phase 10-A subdivision with staff recommendations. Commissioner Lightfoot seconded the motion which passed unopposed (5 - 0). ~: PRESUBMISSION CONFERENCE REPORT November 22, 1995 TO: Jim Crowell, Begonia Corporation 1901 San Jacinto, Houston, TX 77002 Steve Arden, Brazosland Realty 4103 Texas Avenue, Bryan, TX 77802 Michael McClure, McClure Engineering, Inc. 1722 Broadmoor, Suite 210, Bryan, TX 7780 FROM: Project Review Committee Sabine Kuenzel, Senior Planner Veronica Morgan, Assistant City Enginee Others Attending Natalie Thomas, Planning Technician Shirley Volk, Development Coordinator George McLean, CSISD Representative 2 ~ i ,, , -.9 . ~ ~ (; a, ~f'_ '~~ _ ..J ~' '~ C ~j CT`s _-.~ r ~~~ I~ ~ jB ~~ 'i.,.4 SUBJECT: Final Plat -Edelweiss Estates Phase 10 A; proposed subdivision totaling 5.225 acres divided into 16 single family lots located southwest of the Elm Crest Subdivision along the extension of Mint Avenue.
