(Ord. No. 857, §24,12,119/92) t C Resolution No.04-26-01 - 12.03 College Station Comprehensive Plan City of College Station, Texas SUB-AREA 7A This area is located along the south side of Harvey Road, extending from FM 158 to Pamela Lane. The area has developed as a mixture of residential, commercial and institutional uses. The area is platted as a portion of the Harvey Hillsides subdivision. The terrain falls from FM 158 to the west. Water and sewer are available. The Land Use plan should reflect this area as it is developed - Mixed Use. Rezoning proposals for changing the residences fronting Harvey Road in this area to a commercial use may be expected in the future. Zoning changes should not be made on a lot by lot basis. Such conversions should be addressed through the consolidation of property. Non-residential zones should be limited to lower intensity uses. The relatively small lots in this area abut other residential lots. The lot sizes and limited natural buffers in the area limit the ability to mitigate land use conflicts and impacts. The PDD approach should be used to provide for any land use changes through consolidation of property. Higher density single family uses may be appropriate on some of the deeper lots if they can be oriented away from FM 30 and provide internal access. SUB-AREA 7B This area includes the tracts fronting along the south side of Harvey Road from Pamela Lane to Linda Lane. The tracts back up to the Harvey Hillsides low density single family area. The area includes both vacant and developed tracts. A portion of the area is zoned C-3 Planned Commercial, a portion of which has recently developed as an office. Additionally, two PDD zoned tracts have been approved for development of a restaurant and a condominium complex. The remaining property is zoned A-0- Terrain here slopes away from Harvey Road, falling toward the residential area to the south. There is a small creek meandering along the south side of the area. The areas 201 April 26, 2001 Resolution No.04-26-01 - 12.03 College Station Comprehensive Plan City of College Station, Texas alongside the creek are wooded and present a natural buffer to the residential area to the south. Water and sewer are available in the area. The Land Use Plan should show the area as Mixed Use with an emphasis on consolidation of property. Appropriate uses would include light commercial, office/service, and higher density single family. Specific land use conflicts and impacts should be addressed through the PDD review and approval process. These include type and placement of outdoor lighting, location and orientation of outdoor facilities, preservation of natural buffers and others as determined by the Commission and Council. Sus-AREA 7C This area consists of an undeveloped A-O zoned tract of approximately 29 acres. The tract extends from Linda Lane to the west, along the south side of Harvey Road. This heavily wooded tract is relatively flat and has little depth at its western end. The eastern portion of this tract slopes from Harvey Road to the south. Water and sewer are available in this area. The tract is zoned A-O. It abuts the Harvey Hillsides subdivision. The depth of the tract off of Harvey Road varies. The tract has little depth at its western end, where there is also some 100-year floodplain. This tract is poorly sited for residential development at the same density of the Harvey Hillsides lots that abut it. Lots of that density would have to front on Harvey Road. That was an acceptable development style at the time that Harvey Hillsides developed. Current development policies and practices discourage residential lots fronting along this type of road. The shallow depth on portions of the lot limit commercial development potential. This same depth problem limits buffers for the residences to the south. It is recommended that this area be reflected as Attached Residential on the Land Use Plan to allow for patio homes and townhomes. Professional services or office uses could be included as part of a mixed use development or an office district may be used if design requirements are changed to address residential adjacency issues. Specific land use conflicts and impacts may need to be addressed through the PDD review and approval process. The residential districts should be changed to add design requirements to require inward orientation, buffering, and limited access. Residential uses should be oriented away from FM 30 and individual driveways should not be allowed. The recommendations, as adopted, will result in an amendment to the Land Use Plan as depicted in Figure 49. 202 April 26, 2001 PDD POLICY AS APPROVED BY THE CITY OF COLLEGE STATION CITY COUNCIL AUGUST 2001 The goal of the Planned Development District is to promote and encourage innovative development that is sensitive to surrounding land uses and to the natural environment. In order to justify varying from certain standards, the proposed development should demonstrate community benefits. To achieve this goal, the City of College Station has adopted the following policies: 1. CONCEPTS ONLY: A PDD should not be used to guarantee specific site or building characteristics within a development. A PDD should be submitted for multiple sites, and should not be used to apply additional development standards to a single site. 2. RELIANCE ON EXISTING PERFORMANCE STANDARDS: A PDD should not be used to require buffering or other standards that are over and above existing district standards. If the existing buffering standards are deemed inadequate, the standards themselves should be reviewed and upgraded. 3. INNOVATIVE DESIGN: A PDD application should be encouraged where a development is to follow a modern trend style such as new urbanism, mixed use, or cluster, and that includes all or some of the following elements: ❑ Preservation of open space in prominent locations with good vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle access ❑ Preservation of wetlands, ponds, or other natural resources ❑ Good connectivity within the development as well as connectivity to surrounding neighborhoods and thoroughfares ❑ Significant amenities located in highly visible locations with good vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle access ❑ Preservation of significant tree stands ❑ Inclusion of neighborhood supporting uses such as workplaces, recreation, shopping, and personal services with orientation to the neighborhood and good pedestrian and bicycle access ❑ Incorporation of public transit waiting stations in pedestrian friendly areas ❑ Accommodation of the existing topography to minimize required grading ❑ A mix of residential densities and housing styles ❑ Inclusion of urban open spaces such as plazas or marketplaces ❑ Location of elementary school sites in areas easily accessible by pedestrians and cyclists ❑ Connectivity of natural areas within the development and to those in surrounding areas ❑ Avoidance of cul-de-sacs ❑ Traffic calming features PDD POLICY AS APPROVED BY THE CITY OF COLLEGE STATION CITY COUNCIL AUGUST 2001 The goal of the Planned Development District is to promote and encourage innovative development that is sensitive to surrounding land uses and to the natural environment.
