ELLISON AMY L. CLOUGH* 'also licensed in Wisconsin July 3, 2002 City of College Station Development Services 1101 Texas Avenue College Station, TX 77840 ATTN: NATALIE RUIZ Re: Tim Crowley Master Development Plan Dear Natalie: TELEPHONE: (979) 696 -9889 FACSIMILE: (979) 693 -8819 As you recall, we submitted an application for a Master Development Plan on February 19, 2001, covering approximately 350 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection of Greens Prairie Road and Texas Highway 6. The plan was approved March 15, 2001. On January 18, 2002, 1 submitted a request pursuant to Chapter 9, Section 6 -B.3.7 of the City of College Station Code of Ordinances to extend the Master Development Plan approval for an additional six month period. Thereafter, Joe Schultz submitted a Master Preliminary Plat of the area even though one is not technically required by Section 6 -B.1. As I understand of the Ordinance, Tim could have in accordance with the last sentence, submitted a preliminary plat, and then submitted a final plat following that. As I am sure you aware, the Master Preliminary Plat submitted was held up by the access to Highway 40 issues. We are currently working diligently to resolve those matters and have been actively participating with TXDOT, the County and the City in our effort. As I read section o -B.3.7 , a final plat is required within the six month period to prevent the "expiration" of the Master Development Plan. The only exception to this is if the Commission reviews this approval period "in light of new or significant information which would necessitate a revision ". By my calculation, the Crowley Master Development Plan expires September 15, 2002. The inability to proceed and file a final plat because of the Highway 40 access issues are, in my mind, "new or significant information which would necessitate a revision ". I would like to insure that the Master Development Plan is extended until we have the resolution of the access issues to Highway 40. Would you please consider this a request to submit the expiration of the Crowley Master Development Plan to the Commission for an extension beyond the last six month extension in light of the new information. I look forward to your earliest response. Very truly yours, Char s . Ellison CAE:bg cc: Tim Crowley MEMORANDUM February 14, 2002 TO: Planning and Zoning Commission FROM: Jessica Jimmerson Email: jjimmers @ci.college - station.tx.us SUBJECT: Extension of the Master Development Plan for the Crowley Tract (01 -52) Item: Discussion and possible action on a Master Development Plan for the Crowley Tract, consisting of approximately 351 acres located on the northwest corner of the intersection of State Highway 6 and Greens Prairie Road. (1- 500052) Applicant: Charles Ellison Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends approval. Item Summary: In March of 2001 the Commission heard a request for approval of the revised Master Development Plan for this area. On that same night they also heard a rezoning request for the area. They approved the Master Plan and recommended approval of the rezoning request which was subsequently heard by Council and approved. If no further action is taken, Master Plans expire 12 months from the approval date. The applicant is requesting a six month extension as provided for in the ordinance to enable them to continue with the development as planned. This property is already zoned for the uses as outlined in the Master Plan. Staff did re- evaluate the Master Plan considering activity in the area since the time of the original approval and did not identify any issues that need to be revisited with the Master Plan. Attachments: 1. Area map 2. Request from Applicant 3. General Plan (Original Large Plan will be on wall at meeting) J: \HTLTR \PZLTR \PROD \PZ2001 \P0005833. DOC From: Ken Fogle To: Jane Kee; Jessica Jimmerson Date: 2/7/02 2:58PM Subject: Re: Crowley Master Plan extension I just called the engineer in charge of the ramp relocation project to get TxDOT's take on the chance of ever getting another interchange between Barron Road and Green Prairie Road. He reinforced my thoughts on this. There is very little chance that TxDOT would ever consider another interchange in this section. Another interchange would reduce the interchange spacing to less than a mile. This is a no -no in freeway design. My recommendation would be to not make an effort to align Pebble Creek Parkway and the East -West collector on the west side of SH6. I feel like this is a dead issue and any effort spent aligning these roads will be for naught. I was hoping that our discussion at the P &Z subcommittee meeting would put an end to this idea, but it keeps coming back. From: Jane Kee To: Jessica Jimmerson; Ken Fogle Date: 2/7/02 2:38PM Subject: Re: Crowley Master Plan extension that last para would make Happ say "All the more reason to line up the streets on either side of SH6. If we think we should do this we need to talk to Crowley. What do you think, Ken?

Embracing the Past, Exploring the Future. >>> Ken Fogle 02/07/02 02:23PM >>> I think that explains it. One point that I want to stress is that the interchange design for Barron Road is by no means something that we would choose to do if we had any other options. In fact, TxDOT has not seen our idea, nor have they commented on it; we don't have any guarantee that they will approve it. It will involve elevating SH6 for a lengthy span... something that we usually only see in a larger metropolitan area. In this case, the chance of there ever being another interchange at Pebble Creek Parkway is slim. I think that this chance decreases significantly if the interchange would involve an offset similar to Barron Road. From: Jane Kee To: Jessica Jimmerson Date: 2/7/02 10:02AM Subject: Re: Crowley Master Plan extension nothing really, I guess as part of the presentation we can tell the Commission we discussed whether to relocate that collector and move it north slightly to line up with Pebble Crk. but that because it doesn't extend westward thru the Crowley property as it did originally, it really doesn't enhance the t-fare plan. We looked at it because of a possibility (very slim) of Tx Dot ever putting another overpass between Barron and Greens Pr., but if that were to happen we could do the same design as the one at Barron where it is offset slightly. KEN - Did I get at the heart of this you think ?? >>> Jessica Jimmerson 02/06/02 05:57PM >>> What else did you want us to discuss before making the decision on whether or not to support the requested extension of the mdp?
