MEMORANDUM June 24, 2003 TO: Planning and Zoning Commission FROM: Spencer Thompson Email: sthompson @cstx.gov SUBJECT: FINAL PLAT for SPRING MEADOWS SUB. PH. II (FP) Item: Consideration, discussion, and possible action on a Final Plat for Spring Meadows Subdivision Phase II consisting of 95 lots on 32 acres generally located at 308 Greens Prairie Road. Applicant: Lee Adams, P.E. for Woodland Hills Development Ltd. Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends approval of the plat. Item Summary: This item is the resubmittal of the Spring Meadows Subdivision Phase II originally approved in November, 2002. The Developer has redesigned 2 items. Rock Spring Court, Sheet 1, now consists of "zero -lot line" building sites. The concept allows for homes to be constructed along one side of the lot to allow for a larger yard area, rather than splitting the yard on two sides. The second item was to align Spring Meadows Boulevard with Stone Forest across Greens Prairie Road due to the future median construction. The realignment adjusted several lots and the entryway. This plat received a variance at the November meeting. The variance allowed for Lots 12B and 13B to be platted as "non- buildable" lots. This area has not been adjusted. Comprehensive Plan Considerations: Land Use Plan: Single- family, zoned R -1 Thoroughfare Plan: Greens Prairie is a Major Arterial Parkland Dedication: Approved by Parks Board to allow the adjacent park in Woodland Hills to fulfill dedication requirements with construction of an emergency /pedestrian accessway. Special Area Plans: Area studied in the Triangle as single - family. Rock Prairie Road/ Greens Prairie Road Attachments: 1. Area map 2.
