Staff Report ■ MEMORANDUM June 9, 2004 TO: Planning and Zoning Commission FROM: Spencer Thompson Email: sthompson@cstx.gov SUBJECT: A Replat of Southwest Crossing 3 Block 7, Lot 1R and A Final Plat of Liberty Subdivision Block 1, Lots 1 and 2 Item: Public hearing, discussion, and possible action on a Replat of Southwest Crossing 3, Block 7, Lot 1R, and a Final Plat for Liberty Subdivision, Block 1, Lots 1 and 2 consisting of 12.26 acres, located at the southwest corner of the intersection of State Highway 6 and Southwest Parkway. Applicant: Joe Schultz, P.E., TEXCON, agent for the owner Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends approval of the Plat as submitted. Item Summary: This item is for consideration of a Replat of one existing lot and Final Plat for two new lots in preparation for commercial development. The property has frontage on Southwest Parkway and State Highway 6. This Plat is in compliance with the approved Preliminary Plat and all lots meet minimum requirements. The access to Lots 1 and 2 is shown by way of a private access easement on the plat. The proposed location of this easement meets the City's requirements for minimum driveway separation distances. TxDOT has reviewed the proposed location of the easement that abuts State Highway 6 right -of -way. If the development has high demand or use, an acceleration /deceleration lane onto the frontage road may be required in the future. Comprehensive Plan Considerations: The property is zoned C -1 General Commercial and A -P Administrative Professional. The Land Use Plan designates the property as Retail Regional and Office. Southwest Parkway is classified a minor arterial and State Highway 6 is classified a freeway on the City's Thoroughfare Plan. Item Background: The property was annexed in 1971 and zoned R -1 at that time. The property was rezoned from R -1 and A -P to C -1 in 2001. The rezoning of the portion of the property that is adjacent to the Windsor Pointe Apartments A required a buffer to be installed at the beginning of the development of the property. This condition will be addressed at the site plan stage. Southwest Crossing was platted in 1981. The remainder of the property has never been platted. Supporting Materials: 1. Area map 2.
