REZONING

 

  1. Request by Garry L. and Brenda G. Lewis to rezone from R-S (Single Family Residential) to M-LP (Planned Industrial) of 13.73 acres, more or less, and to approve a Review Plan for Steeplechase Park Planned Development, located at 5700 E. I-70 Dr. SE., Columbia.
  2. No one present to represent the owner. Item was postponed to later in the agenda.

     

  3. Request by W. Craig and Michelle M. Simon to rezone from R-M (Moderate Density Residential) to M-LP (Planned Industrial) of 39.19 acres, more or less, and to approve a Review Plan for Tower Industrial Park located at 1715 E. Prathersville Rd., Columbia.

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this site is located north of the Columbia City Limits on the north side of Prathersville Road and approximately one quarter mile west of the Highway 63 North’s Prathersville interchange. The property is currently zoned R-M (Moderate Density Residential) which is the original 1973 zoning. Adjacent zoning to the north, south, and west is R-M which are also original 1973 zonings. Zoning to the east is C-GP (Planned General Commercial) which was rezoned from R-M in 1994. The request encompasses 39.19 acres. It is within the Columbia School District. Water service is provided by the City of Columbia. There is an old farmhouse and various outbuildings on the property, which is otherwise undeveloped. In April 1998 the previous owner requested that this property be rezoned to M-L (light Industrial). That request was denied, with a suggestion that the request be amended to a planned development. It should be noted there are some existing commercial and light industrial uses along Prathersville Road in the vicinity of this proposal. The Master Plan identifies the property as being suitable for residential land use. However, the Master Plan suggests that future commercial and industrial zoning districts can best be developed as planned developments. Staff notified 78 property owners concerning this request.

(Review Plan/Preliminary Plat) This proposal is for a 6 lot preliminary plat, which includes the creation of a new county road, Tower Court. JCIC has approved the road name. A review plan has also been presented. 2 of the lots are currently shown on the review plan for development. Assuming approval of the current review plan, the remaining 4 lots will need to have amended review plans and final plans submitted on them before development can occur on them. The 2 lots currently indicated for development are lot 4 and lot 5. Tower Court will need to be built to county commercial road standards. Since sewer and water service will be from the City of Columbia a pre-annexation agreement requiring the meeting of all city standards will be required. Additionally, the city has indicated that the 6" watermain in the area will need to be upgraded to provide the proper amount of water for the development. The NRCS has some concerns on the stormwater run-off and erosion potential for lots 1 & 2 and an erosion control & stormwater plan should be submitted along with the final plan and final plat. A landscaping plan has been provided, it is important to note that since a pre-annexation agreement will be required that the landscaping requirements will need to meet the city standards. A traffic analysis has been provided with the submittal. The study indicates traffic increases in the area for build out conditions. A signal at the intersection may be needed at some time as development occurs. Public Works has concerns on the traffic study and these should be worked out between the developer and public works. Since there are no specific uses proposed as part of the plan the commission should consider if there are any specific uses they wish to limit or eliminate from the permitted or conditional uses of the M-L district for this development. The proposal rates 71 points on the point rating scale.

If the commission approves the rezoning request then, Staff recommends approval of the preliminary plat and review plan subject to the following conditions:

  1. That the developer work with and satisfy County Public Works with respect to appropriate traffic control measures for the intersection, the timing of when they will be placed, and what portion of the costs the developer is responsible for.
  2. That the landscaping plan be allowed to be modified by the inclusion of a higher level of planting, screening and other features where necessary to meet the city standards.
  3. That the development obtains the proper approvals from the city on a current phase of proposal before initiating the next step with the county.
  4. That since no specific uses or set of uses have been proposed, that those M-L uses that are conditional uses be required to obtain conditional use permits
  5. 5. That the commission considers whether or not some of the specific uses listed as permitted uses and conditional uses should be prohibited.

 

Ron Shy, Allstate Consultants, P.C., 3312 Lemone Industrial Blvd. Columbia was present to represent the owner. He advised the commissioners that this proposal had been before them for a straight rezoning by Bill Eckhoff last year. The same uses were proposed that night but this request is now a Planned Industrial.

Mr. Shy showed a site plan to the commission pointing out the different proposed buildings.

Regarding the sanitary sewer, they had made a request to the City of Columbia for a pre-annexation agreement but no comments had been received back from the City.

When his office looked into the storm water situation they know there will have to have some detention prior to the water passing onto Prathersville Road in front of the fire station. January 22, 1999 they invited all the neighbors to discuss any concerns they might have. Their major concerns he felt were the storm water, and the lighting in the industrial area. Both Craig and Michelle (Shelly) Simon attended this meeting and they heard the concerns expressed and noted.

The lighting is to be at ground level pointing up towards the building to illuminate the building rather than illuminating away from the building. Probably the lighting in the back would be security lighting. It was discussed to have that lighting on a motion detector switch.

Open to the public hearing. In favor of the request.

Craig Simon, 2620 Mill Creek Court, Columbia (owner) addressed the Commissioners. He is also President of Professional Contractors and Engineers and owner. He asked for a favorable response to his request for the rezoning. He passed around to the Commissioners two architect’s renderings of the proposed facilities. He said he wanted to create a class A – Industrial type park. Initial use for their facility would be an office-warehouse. Their primary goal is to be located there. They would be the immediate neighbors to the residents.

In opposition

George Wilson, 1600 E Prathersville Rd., (directly across the road from the proposed site) Columbia addressed the Commissioners. He believed that the commercial zoning would kill their residential property values. This would cause a lot of truck traffic, which would create the need to widen the road, and would then take part of his yard. He said he was opposed to the request.

Susan Spencer, 1710 Prathersville Rd., Columbia addressed the Commissioners. She read from a prepared statement. As homeowners they were concerned about the rezoning since it would be across the road from their homes.

The lighting concerns were discussed at the meeting. One suggestion was for motion lights, which would help not to have the lights on through the late hours. Another suggestion not suggested tonight was that the lights would automatically turn off - i.e. lights off at 9:00 p.m. Lighting would be off for neighborhood sleeping time.

Another concern was for the four-(4) lots that have not been specified for development on the plan. Her family lives directly across the street from this large unspecified property

Another concern of all the property owners is the decrease in residential property values. Industrial zoning across from residential homes, they did not think anyone would want to purchase their property in the future.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked how long she had lived in the area. Ms. Spencer said 7 ˝ years.

Closed to public hearing.

Ron Shy re-addressed concerns to the Commissioners. He did not think there were any plans for widening the street. The street had already been designated as an arterial street. They will provide a 50-ft. half width right-of-way as part of their development plan for when the road is widened in the future.

As far as the other lots are concerned, the owners would have to submit plans to the P & Z Commission for approval once they decide what will go on those lots.. He felt like Mr. Simon would be building a good building out of tilt up concrete. A modern style of office warehouse type building. It is not going to be what some consider an industrial park. With the owner on site, he would be more particular with what would be going into the industrial park. Mr. Shy said he was not qualified to address the property values. There was already a mixed use out there. The area is zoned R-M and a person could put probably 300 to 400 units on the property.

Commissioner Abart asked Mr. Shy about the lighting and what was the consideration or consensus after evaluating the request for the lighting to be off at 9:00 or 10:00 o’clock at night? Mr. Shy said there was some talk, but the lighting that the Simons’ had proposed was indirect lighting from the ground on to the building. The lighting was not to be shining away from the building except for the security lighting in the rear of the building or equipment area (security zone).

Chairman Kirkpatrick added that any changes or future proposals (undesignated buildings) would have to go through the Planning Commission at a later date. Commissioner Abart asked if the same neighbors would be notified at that time. Chairman Kirkpatrick acknowledged that they would.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked Commissioner Abart if there were future plans to have the road widened? Commissioner Abart stated that currently there were no plans to widen it. But with increased use, the city and the county; or the city if ever annexed could change that.

Commissioner Sloan asked Mr. Shy what type of warehouse would this be? Mr. Shy said construction materials, construction equipment they would use. PC & E is a building contractor and items not used on the job would be in there for maintenance or storage. Commissioner Sloan asked what would be stored outside the building? Mr. Simon answered from the audience, that the biggest equipment is a bobcat or a skid loader. They occasionally get parked outside and when work slows down they will occasionally park an office trailer or storage trailer in the yard.

Commissioner Smith asked how this request would effect traffic flow? Mr. Shy said they preformed a traffic analysis for the county. The study showed that if this were a development at this park, the lowest level of service would be coming out of Tower Court (level B). Level A is the best you can get and level F is failed. Their traffic is throughout the day. There would not be a peak hour.

Commissioner Abart said his office had not thoroughly reviewed the traffic analysis yet, but it would not make a huge impact from what he has seen at this time. His staff still will make a review and give their report.

Commissioner Abart asked about the storm water. Did it have to be approved by DNR? Mr. Yonke that based upon the Natural Resources Conservation Services report, that Lots 1 and 2 would require some form of erosion control. Those plans would need to be submitted with the final plan. Mr. Yonke said that Allstate typically supplied that information. Mr. Shy added that from the neighborhood meeting said they found out that there was a stormwater problem in the drainage way to the west along Prathersville Road under the driveway of the fire station and behind the houses where it drains, creating problems. To look at the it, the fire station has a sizable swell prior to the culvert under the driveway. On development of lot 1 they may have to provide a detention structure to help the situation and not make it worse. Mr. Shy said whether it was on the conditions or not they were going to address the problem.

Commissioner Abart made and Commissioner Fugit seconded motion to approve review plan for Tower Industrial Park located at 1715 E. Prathersville Rd., Columbia subject to the following conditions:

  1. That the developer work with and satisfy County Public Works with respect to appropriate traffic control measures for the intersection, the timing of when they will be placed, and what portion of the costs the developer is responsible for.
  2. That the landscaping plan be allowed to be modified by the inclusion of a higher level of planting, screening and other features where necessary to meet the city standards.
  3. That the development obtains the proper approvals from the city on a current phase of proposal before initiating the next step with the county.
  4. Sufficient storm water run off detention/retention plans be included.
  5. Security lighting be included with the automatic shut off/motion detector and that all other lighting be a ground level pointing inward and upward and include a lighting plan on final plan.

 

Commissioner Green said the Commission had run into a lot of situations where there is residential area adjacent and/or across the street from commercial property. He said there has to be break in the county and in the residential areas where industrial facilities occur right next door. It is natural for this to happen, but are there any requirements on the landscaping that it be heavy enough in front to obstruct the view. That after a few years the residential landowners are not looking directly across the street at a retail outlet or a wholesale outlet. Director Shawver said that could be specific in the landscaping requirements or conditions. Berms could be erected between building and residential area with landscaping. The Commission could be very specific and when the landscaping plan comes back it can be amended.

Request by RDM Development, Inc. to rezone from R-S

(Single Family Residential) to C-G (General Commercial) of .48 acres,

more or less, located at 5709 E. St. Charles Rd

Bill Florea gave staff re port stating that this property is located east of Columbia on St. Charles Rd. The property is zoned R-S. Property to the north is zoned R-M; to the east is R-S; to the south across St. Charles Rd. is zoned C-G; to the west is C-N and R-M. This tract measures 454 feet by 50 feet and contains a total of .52 acres of land. The property is vacant. This strip of land originally was attached to a larger tract of land located to the north. The land to the north was platted in 1997 as Woods Mill Subdivision. This strip was excluded from that subdivision plat and will have to be platted before any development may take place. However, there are several problems with the lot that will prevent it from being platted unless Board of Adjustment grants several variances. The Master Plan designates this area as being suitable for residential land uses. Staff notified 156 property owners concerning this request.

Ron Shy, Allstate Consultants, P.C., 3312 Lemone Industrial Blvd. Columbia addressed the Commission along with Ray Parsons owner of the request.

Mr. Shy said that this was a strip of land attached to a piece of property that RDM purchased several years ago and developed the balance of it as a subdivision. This was not of any value to the lot owners of the subdivision so it was deleted from the subdivision. The lot is only 50’ wide and quite long 400+ft. long it made it difficult to figure some sort of use for the property. Mr. Parsons feels if he can get it rezoned commercial and replat that he could develop a use for it. It is next to some commercial property, it backs up to some duplexes at Woods Mill and the owner to the east is a single-family homeowner.

If Mr. Parsons gets this rezoned, it would give him some possibilities to utilize the property.

Commissioner Abart asked why the owner was requesting a straight commercial rezoning as opposed to a planned commercial of some type? Mr. Shy said there was no particular reason.

Open to Public Hearing. In favor of the request.

Steve Reichlin, 4208 Fall River Drive, Columbia came forward. He and Mr. Parsons were some of the new owners in the area and could be counted in the preservation and the general upkeep of the area. He felt the area was in a period of change, road widening, and commercial zoning to the south. He viewed what would happen with this 50 ft. was an indicator of what was happening in the area. Owning other property in the area, he had no objection to the rezoning request.

In opposition to the request.

Glenna Kilfoil, 2801 W Broadway, manager for Lakewood Estates Association addressed the Commission. She showed a map of the proposed property and how it lays in beside the Lakewood Estates Association. There are three building that would have this property right next to it and the fourth one be see a type of it. Anything commercial there would be a detriment to the association.

Director Shawver gave to the Commission a letter received in opposition from Tammy & Stuart Barfrede, 1612 Lakewood Drive. (letter in record)

Mr. Krishna Subramanian, 5373 E Trikalla Dr., Columbia addressed the Commission. He believed the property should not be rezoned to commercial purposes. He felt it would reduce the property values.

Closed to public hearing.

Ron Shy re-addressed the concerns. He said the property was adjacent to the Lakewood Homes Association on the north end. The south end it is adjacent to the convenience store that is already there. They would do their best to screen the property but the other commercial is again, already there.

Mr. Shy asked if the homeowners were objecting or the homeowner association objecting? Chairman Kirkpatrick said Ms. Kilfoil was on behalf of the association and two other homeowners on their own.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked staff if this was a legal lot? Director Shawver said no, not in its present form, it would have to be platted to be a legal lot.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked how it became an illegal lot? Director Shawver gave a summary of what took placed.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked upon if it were a legal lot, and were platted, was it a buildable lot? Director Shawver said under the Subdivision Regulations it did not meet the requirements. A minimum width requirement on a subdivision plat of 60’ wide. It would need a variance in that regards from the Board of Adjustment in order to be platted. Also on the 3 to 1 ratio (3 times longer than wide) this again would need a variance from the Board of Adjustment. There is nothing unique about this lot. It is a self-created hardship.

Ron Shy stated that as far as the 3 to 1 ratio it wold have made an illegal lot in Woodsmill. Director Shawver stated it could have been used as an access to another road. Mr. Shy agreed. At one time it had been planned to have a road there.

Commissioner Smith asked if anything else it could be used for other than a mini storage? Mr. Parsons said no, not for the frontage. But in the future maybe sell to the convenience store.

Commissioner Abart said that is what he had problems with regarding straight commercial, being only 50 ft wide, anything could go in there and he was opposed to the request.

Chairman Kirkpatrick agreed with Commissioner Abart. This is a bad situation, but as Director Shawver pointed out this is a self created situation. Considering all the approvals that would have to be obtained from the Board of Adjustment as well as Planning and Building Commission and the County Commission he did not see much hope for it even if approved. He did not see the request have any merit at all.

Commissioner Sloan and Commissioner Smith seconded motion to DENY request by RDM Development, Inc. to rezone from R-S (Single Family Residential) to C-G (General Commercial) of .48 acres, more or less, located at 5709 E. St. Charles Rd.

PLAT REVIEWS

Simon Steel Subdivision. S3-T47N-R12W. M-LP/C-G.

Simon Steel, Inc., owner. Timothy D. Capehart, surveyor.

Thad Yonke gave staff report that this two lot plat is located on the West Side of the access road on the West Side of Highway 63 south of the Williams Brothers tank farm and the Boone County Public Works Facility. The site is 1000 feet northwest of the intersection of Bonne Femme Church Road and the access road along Highway 63. The property is 1200 feet south of the municipal limits of the City of Columbia now that the University South Farms has been annexed into the city. The property is also immediately north of Triple B Doors Subdivision. The tract is zoned C-G (General Commercial) as is the property immediately to the south, west, and north. These are all original 1973 zonings. There is an approved review plan and pending rezoning to M-L (Light Industrial) on the property that will not take effect until a Final Plan is approved. The property to the east across Highway 63 is zoned R-M (Residential Moderate Density) and C-G. These are also both original 1973 zonings. The site contains 4.19 acres. Water service will be provided by Consolidated Public Water Service District #1. There is currently an existing 4" waterline that can serve the property. The fire district does not believe that sufficient fire flows exist to the property at this time and as such an upgrade to the line size and flow rate will likely be needed before the plat can be recorded. Hydrants will be required for the development. Sewage treatment is proposed to be from on-site systems. The health department has some concerns about how the wastewater is going to be handled. The proposals up to this point have been rejected by the Health Department. A waiver of traffic analysis and cost benefit analysis for a central sewer has been requested. The planning staff concurs with the request. This plat has 68 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval with the provisions: That the Fire District and Health Department concerns be addressed and approved to the satisfaction of each prior to County Commission sign-off. Staff also recommends waivers of the traffic analysis and sewer cost benefit analysis.

Timothy D. Capehart, surveyor with Marshall Engineering & Surveying, 300 St. James St., Columbia addressed the Commission. He said he would be glad to answer any questions they may have.

Chairman Kirkpatrick if he had any problems working out the issues with the fire district and health department. Mr. Capehart said their was a review plan proposed and approved for lot no. 1 to have those items would be taken care of in that review plan.

Commissioner Abart made and Commissioner Fugit seconded motion to approve plat review of Simon Steel Subdivision with conditions that the Fire District and Health Department concerns be addressed and approved to the satisfaction of each prior to County Commission sign-off. Staff also recommends waivers of the traffic analysis and sewer cost benefit analysis.

I-70 Commercial Center. S7-T48N-R11W. M-L.

Jeff Crane Builders, Inc., owner. Timothy D. Capehart, surveyor.

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this 5 lot major plat is located west of Rangeline Road 350 feet south of the intersection of I-70 Drive SE and Rangeline Road. The site is approximately 2 & 1/2 miles east of the municipal limits of the City of Columbia. The site is part of the former location of the American Sportsplex. The area of the proposed subdivision contains 14.21 acres out of a combination of parcels that total approximately 39 acres. This zoning for the property is split with the north portion zoned C-G (General Commercial) and the south portion zoned M-L (Light Industrial). The property to the north is zoned C-G as is the property to the northeast across Rangeline Road. The property to the east and southeast across Rangeline Road is zoned A-2 (Agriculture). Property to the south and southwest is zoned M-L. The property to the west is zoned REC (Recreational). The REC was rezoned from C-G and M-L in 1981. A portion of this plat and the property to the southwest that is owned by the subdivider of this plat was rezoned from REC to M-L in 1993. The REC itself was rezoned in 1981 from the original 1973 zoning of C-G and M-L. Other than these rezonings the other referenced zonings are original 1973 zonings. The site is in Public Water Service District #9 and according to the district there is a 10" waterline along the West Side of Rangeline Road and a 12" main running east west on or near the property. The Fire District needs hydrants and proper fire flow to be provided. Sewage treatment is proposed to be from the collector system that serves the industrial properties to the south. Plans have been submitted for the sewer connection. The BCRSD will have to review and approve the sewer plans and capacity. If capacity can not be increased then the plat will need to be modified for a collection system to be included within the plat. A new county road is proposed as part of this plat overlaying a current driveway. This new road will need to be built to county standards. The name of Trade Center Drive needs to be reviewed by JCIC, if the name does not pass a new name acceptable to JCIC will need to be provided. The proposed road will need a temporary or permanent cul-de-sac at its termination. The road length is about 150’ longer than the maximum allowed length for the road. A waiver of the traffic analysis has been requested. This plat has 71 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval along with the granting of the waiver for traffic analysis subject to the following conditions: That JCIC approve the road name. That the sewer district approve the sewer system. That BCPW review and approve road plans prior to road construction, and that the water and fire hydrants meet Fire District approval.

Timothy D. Capehart, surveyor with Marshall Engineering & Surveying, 300 St. James St., Columbia addressed the Commission. He said he would be glad to answer any questions they may have.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked about lot 4? Mr. Capehart said it was a remainder of a survey of the original AirPark ownership. There is a contact for sale of lot 5 and they did not want the property. Otherwise the property is non-accessible and would not meet the length requirements to give it a stem lot.

Commissioner Abart said the road had plenty of room with a 66 ft wide, so they would want to have a turn-around when the road plans come through. Mr. Capehart said that on lot 5 there is a temporary turn-around easement shown that would incorporate a 100 x 100-ft area for a turn-around. Mr. Capehart continued that plans had been turn into Public Works reflecting that. Commissioner Abart acknowledged and said "good."

Commissioner Green made and Commissioner Fugit second motion to approve I-70 Commercial Center plat with staff recommendations.

Granting of the waiver for traffic analysis subject to the following conditions:

That JCIC approve the road name.

That the sewer district approve the sewer system.

That BCPW review and approve road plans prior to road construction
