Minutes MINUTES Planning and Zoning Commission CITY OF COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS October 28, 2004 4. Public hearing, consideration, discussion, and possible action on variance request in regards to Section 12 -K.2 Block Length of the Subdivision regulations and a Revised Preliminary Plat for Williams Creek Subdivision consisting of 112 lots on 214 acres generally located at Rock Prairie Road. (04 -230) Graduate Civil Engineer Spencer Thompson presented the staff report and stated that the applicant is requesting the plat be approved as presented. The Williams Creek Preliminary Plat was previously approved with numerous variances at the Commissions June 17, 2004 meeting. All variances are withstanding except for block length. Previously, the block length variance was approved as what was shown on the plat. The street and block arrangement are now revised to where the previous variance approval no longer applies. It appears to Staff that the entryway, Lanthan Drive, can be connected to Johnson Creek Loop through the area of Lots 31 & 32 of Phase 3 and Lots 42 & 43 of Phase 4 to thereby lessen the length of Block 1. Commissioner White opened the Public Hearing. Joe Schultz stepped forward representing the developers. Mr. Schultz stated that they have a better plan than what was presented previously and approved by the Commission. Commissioner White closed the Public Hearing. Commissioner Reynolds stated that the grade issue was the big issue before and it looks like they have done their best to accommodate that. Commissioner Nichols stated that he is not convinced that adding Lanham Drive is going to gain anything. Mr. Thompson replied that it is one solution to mitigate the block length issue. Commissioner Nichols made the motion to approve the variance to Section 12 -K.2 Block Length of the Subdivision Regulations and the approval of the Revised Preliminary Plat for Williams Creek Subdivision. Commissioner Reynolds seconded the motion, which passed (5 -0). FOR: Nichols, Reynolds, Fedora, White and Hooton AGAINST: None ABSENT: Chairman Shafer and Davis
