Box 6464 Austin, Texas, 78762 (512) 826-1043 CASE MANAGER: Robert Anderson, (512) 974-3026 or robert.anderson@austintexas.gov PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT: The request is for a 3-story, 40 foot tall administrative and business office building with 5,820 square feet of gross floor area on a 0.26 acre site. The total proposed impervious cover is 8,165 square feet (69.1%). SUMMARY STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of the site plan as proposed. The site plan will comply with all requirements of the Land Development Code prior to its release.

Because the site plan proposes an impervious cover amount of 69.1% without meeting the aforementioned conditions, a waiver to the maximum allowable impervious cover is required by Land Development Code Section 25-2-721(A)(1). According to the Land Development Code Section 25-2-721(A)(3)-(4), the Land Use Commission shall seek a recommendation from the Small Area Planning Joint Committee and the Environmental Commission for site plans seeking waivers from the requirements of the Waterfront Overlay Combining Districts. The applicant proposes to redevelop an existing used car sales lot into a three-story and 40-foot tall building of administrative and business office use with 5,820 square feet …

B11 of 4 September 22, 2020 To: Austin Planning Commissioners From: Dawson Neighborhood Association and additional engaged neighbors Re: 219 Lessin Ln, C14-2020-0085 The Dawson Neighborhood Association (DNA) and additional neighbors submit this summary of our perspectives. After meeting virtually (via Zoom) with the project owner and applicant, we mostly want the developer to respect the neighborhood. One of the best ways to respect current residents and owners would be for the developer to reduce the number of proposed units. Aspects of proposed SF6 zoning that seem better than SF3 zoning are increased setbacks from neighboring properties, height limits, and potentially better arrangement of units on the property. According to the proposed SF6 site plan the following seem positive: 1. a through street between Lessin Ln and Krebs Ln/Reyna St instead of multiple drives 2. agreement to remove gates on drives (as currently depicted) 3. preservation of all heritage trees 4. possible public pedestrian traffic on the through street Other major ideas from the neighborhood: 5. maximize green space, minimize impervious cover 6. manage runoff to protect neighbors' properties from flooding 7. manage construction to minimize noise, traffic, and disruption to neighbors 8. address traffic safety concerns regarding turning vehicles at the dead-end street of Lessin Ln and the sharp curve at Krebs Ln/Reyna St 9. consider the impacts to East Bouldin Creek As you know, the DNA was the first to develop a neighborhood plan in the 1990’s and therefore our group has experience with zoning and land use. We recognize that zoning is only the first step in a development process. We are not opposed to urban infill projects on principle, but as proposed, this project will dramatically increase density in the middle of our small neighborhood and therefore suddenly add much traffic and reliance on precious infrastructure resources. Existing residents should have a mechanism that ensures that developer-neighborhood negotiations at the time of re-zoning be maintained so that a change of heart by the developer or a subsequent buyer could not completely ignore the initial discussions. The mechanism could be something akin to a public restrictive covenant or a conditional overlay.

From: Alice Glasco < Sent: Monday, September 21, 2020 6:28 PM Subject: 219 Lessin Lane - Item B-1 on 9/22 PC Agenda *** External Email - Exercise Caution *** Dear Planning Commission Members: I represent the property owner and developer of the property at 219 Lessin Lane in a request for SF-6-NP zoning. This rezoning is not about density, it is about the need for design flexibility and efficiency in how this site is developed. The attached exhibits demonstrate how the site can be developed under SF-6 versus SF-3. Current SF-3 zoning: maximum allowable density is 18 units (9 subdivided lots with two units) – subdivision case number: C8-2020-0099 Achievable units: 16 Compatibility standards: not applicable Proposed SF-6 zoning: maximum allowable density is 18 units (on one site) Achievable units: 17 Compatibility standards: applicable Below is a summary of reasons/justification for SF-6-NP rezoning. • Site area: 1.45 -acre property zoned SF-3-NP, which allows duplexes, single-family detached housing, and accessory dwelling units. • Site constraints: Protected trees and floodplain make this awkwardly- shaped lot less-than-ideal for an arrangement of single-family, two-family, and duplex uses. • SF-6-NP zoning, which does not require subdividing the lot, would provide the developer with a way to orient the units, on one lot, in a much more architecturally and aesthetically pleasing manner. • SF-6-NP zoning would also make utility access and drainage much more sensible and it would enable the developer to grade the site more efficiently. • Building 17 reasonably sized units (1,200 - 1,700 Sq. Ft.) would allow the developer to offer reasonable price points ($500,000 - $600,000 vs. up to $950,000 with a subdivision) while maintaining the character of the neighborhood and arguably developing properties with less mass and intensity. In summary, we believe, SF-6 zoning opens the property and keeps the look, feel and authentic nature of the existing neighborhood. Rather than having big duplexes with Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s), there would be smaller homes arranged in a more natural way. With SF-6-NP zoning, the developer can use the land mor efficiently by including an internal driveway to enable better circulation, efficiency in connecting water, wastewater, and other utility services. ============================= Alice Glasco, President Alice Glasco Consulting 512-231-8110 W 512-626-4461 C

QUALIFICATIONS FOR LANDMARK DESIGNATION: Architecture, historical associations, and community value. HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION ACTION: Recommended the proposed zoning change from CS-1-NCCD-NP to CS-1-H-NCCD-NP. Vote: 9-0 (Tollett and Little absent). PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION: DEPARTMENT COMMENTS: The Schieffer House was the subject of a 2002 historic zoning case, which was reviewed and recommended by the Historic Landmark Commission and the Planning Commission. The City Council approved the zoning change on first and second readings, but delayed action on the third reading to allow for the Austin Revitalization Authority to relocate the house on the same site and construct an addition to the rear of the house. The addition has been completed and the house relocated, so the case is ready to proceed through the commissions once again (due to the expiration of the original case) and proceed to all three readings of an ordinance designating the house as a historic landmark by the City Council. The house has been well-maintained in the interim, and the Historic Landmark Commission has reviewed and approved changes to the house since the case was initiated.

BASIS FOR RECOMMENDATION: Architecture: The house is a one-story vernacular Victorian house in a wing-and-gable configuration. It is a stuccoed wood-frame house with a partial-width front porch on turned wood posts and with turned wood rails. The Schieffer house represents middle-class residential housing at the turn of the century, with a vernacular Victorian form and design elements.

ZONING CHANGE REVIEW SHEET HLC DATE: PC DATE: August 24, 2020 September 8, 2020 CASE NUMBER: C14H-2019-0161 APPLICANT: Thomas M. Schiefer and Meghan Elena Rosales, owners HISTORIC NAME: Mary Freeman Baylor House WATERSHED: Johnson Creek ADDRESS OF PROPOSED ZONING CHANGE: 1607 W. 10th Street ZONING FROM: SF-3-NP to SF-3-H-NP SUMMARY STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Recommend historic zoning. QUALIFICATIONS FOR LANDMARK DESIGNATION: The ca. 1950 house is associated with Charles and Mary Freeman Baylor, who can be documented as living here from the time of construction of the house through the early 1960s. Charles and Mary Freeman Baylor contracted with J.H. Freeman to purchase the house next door, at 1609 W. 10th Street in November, 1963, according to the deed records of Travis County. City directories from 1964 onward show that Charles E. and Mary Freeman Baylor lived next door at 1609 W. 10th Street, and the family rented this house out. Mary Freeman Baylor was a very prominent civil rights activist for the people of her Clarksville neighborhood, leading the charge for the preservation of the Clarksville School and for the provision of sewers, paved streets, and other city services other neighborhoods took for granted in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In addition, Mary Freeman Baylor, along with several of her neighbors, worked diligently to prevent the razing of many of the houses in Clarksville for the construction of the Mo-Pac Expressway and a proposed cross-town expressway in the 1970s. HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION ACTION: August 24, 2020: Recommended the proposed zoning change from SF-3-NP to SF-3-H-NP. PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION: DEPARTMENT COMMENTS: The house is listed as a Priority 1 in the Clarksville Survey (2000). ACTION: ORDINANCE NUMBER: CITY COUNCIL DATE: October 1, 2020 ORDINANCE READINGS: 1ST 2ND 3RD CASE MANAGER: Steve Sadowsky NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION: Clarksville Community Development Corporation; Old West Austin Neighborhood Association.

The application was previously approved to be completed in 5 phases, and through a site plan correction, the site plan was divided into a total of 234 phases. A site plan with this many phases is not typical, but allows for each unit to have its own phase so it can receive its own Certificate of Occupancy. Three of the phases consist of the public infrastructure: sidewalks, driveways, roads, fire lanes, parking, utilities, storm water improvements, detention, water quality improvements and the required offsite improvements. These three phases have been completed and accepted by the City of Austin and their acceptance letters are included in the backup documentation. Additionally, 88 detached condo units are also complete and there are 143 units/phases left to construct. SUMMARY STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval to extend this site plan permit by four years, from March 15, 2021 (new site plan expiration date due to COVID 19) to March 15, 2025 based on the case meeting criteria from LDC Section 25-5-62(C). The applicant has included a justification letter explaining details of this site (included in backup materials) and why the request is beyond the typical three year extension. Staff agrees that based on the construction completed thus far and the need to complete 143 units, that a four year extension is reasonable. 25-5-63(C) Extension of released site plan by the Land Use Commission: “the Land Use Commission may extend the expiration date of a released site plan beyond the date established by this chapter if the Land Use Commission determines that the request complies with the requirements for extension by the director under 25-5-62 (Extension of Released Site Plan by Director).” 25-5-62(C) The director may extend the expiration date …

Ron Thrower) CASE MANAGER: Maureen Meredith STAFF EMAIL: Maureen.meredith@austintexas.gov TYPE OF AMENDMENT: Change in Future Land Use Designation From: Single Family Base District Zoning Change To: Multifamily PHONE: (512) 974-2695 Related Zoning Case: C14-2020-0047 From: SF-3-NP To: MF-1-NP NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN ADOPTION DATE: April 1, 2004 PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: August 25, 2020 – (pending) STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Recommended for the applicant’s request for Multifamily land use. B-11 of 27 BASIS FOR STAFF’S RECOMMENDATION: Staff supports the applicant’s request for multifamily land use because it will add additional housing to the planning area and the city. Multifamily land use is appropriate for this location because there is multifamily land use to the north and east of the property. The proposed change would allow for additional residential units located near the North Lamar Boulevard Activity Corridor and the Crestview Station Town Center as identified on the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan. The Crestview Neighborhood Plan has objectives and recommendations that seek to protect existing single family uses and to also add housing types currently not available in the planning area for retirees and first time home buyers. The applicant’s proposal to build townhomes could help meet these goals. Land Use Objectives and Recommendations Land Use Objective 1: Preserve the character and affordability of the Crestview and Wooten Neighborhoods. Recommendations 1. Existing single-family residential areas should retain SF-3 zoning. Land Use Objective 5: Provide opportunities for the ultimate redevelopment of the Huntsman Petrochemical site to “complete” the neighborhood and create quality open space. Recommendations 1. Focus more intense commercial and mixed use development along Lamar Boulevard. a. Change the zoning for parcels fronting Lamar Boulevard to allow current uses to continue, but encourage redevelopment with more pedestrian-oriented mixed use. b. Prohibit or limit any additional development of incompatible industrial uses, such as basic industry and mining. c. Preserve the historic farmhouse located at 810 Banyon Street. 2. Encourage the development of residential uses on Morrow Street adjacent to the existing neighborhood. a. Morrow Street should be developed primarily with single family residential that complements the existing homes on the north side of the street. b. Other portions of the site …
