Item 2a - SAPJC Questions from 2-19-20 original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 2 pages

Questions from 2/19/20 SAPJC 1. What planning authority does Austin have in our ETJ? What parts of the LDC apply outside of city limits? Do our utilities and ATD have plans for where streets and utilities should go? Austin has city limits and also a planning jurisdiction. The scope of Imagine Austin includes the entire planning jurisdiction. Austin city limits are made up of full purpose and limited purpose jurisdictions. Within city limits, Austin has full planning and land development controls. This means that all development must be in adherence to the adopted zoning and development requirements as contained in Austin Title 25, the land development code. Austin’s planning jurisdiction extends beyond city limits and includes the City’s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Some development regulations do extend into ETJ, but not those that determine zoning and land use. Development in the ETJ must adhere to water quality and water detention and other health-related regulations that local governments may adopt for the subdivision of land. In addition, limited-scope site plan regulations may apply to development in the ETJ, though the review is significantly pared-down compared with site plans in the City’s full and limited purpose jurisdiction. In ETJ that is in Travis County, development is governed by Title 30. That title establishes a process for Austin and Travis County to jointly administer development regulations. Development in the ETJ that is in other counties besides Travis is governed by processes established in interlocal agreements. More information about ETJ can be found here: https://www.tml.org/DocumentCenter/View/1336/ETJ---September-2019-update- to-2019-05-PDF 2. What entities are engaged in regional planning outside of the city, and what is their purview? How are we coordinating with them on implementing Imagine Austin? The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson Counties. MPOs are federally required throughout the country in areas with a population of 50,000 or more and are required to produce a 20+ year transportation plan, called a Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), and a four-year planning document called the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). CAMPO recently adopted the 2045 RTP in May 2020. In Alignment with Imagine Austin, CAMPO’s 2045 Plan evaluates regional activity centers and how they impact the overall transit system (p. 16-17). Many regional jurisdictions use CAMPO’s population and growth projections to plan for future development. 1 Questions from 2/19/20 SAPJC The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) …

The property is on the northeast corner of the intersection of Clermont Street and IH 35 northbound frontage road and is triangular shaped due to prior dedication of property to TxDOT for IH 35 construction. Background information The property has been a used car lot for at least 23 year based on City aerials provided in the presentation. There were a billboard and several large signs on the property, almost all the signs have been removed and the billboard will be removed this fall. Due to the prior taking of right‐of‐way for IH 35 by TxDOT, the shape of the site is a trapezoid with the shortest property line along Clermont Avenue at 41.51‐feet; there is also a 25‐foot electric transmission line easement along the IH 35 frontage. The latest regulations adopted by Austin Energy do not allow trees of any type within the transmission line easement Site Plan Application The owner is seeking a site development permit to construct a 5,820 sf administrative office building on the northeast corner of the property outside the electric transmission line easement. The building height is limited by a SF‐3 zoned lot northeast of the property. Based on the limited size of the building and number of parking spaces, the owner is including a shower for commuter that walk or bicycle. LDC Code Section 25‐2‐735(D) (2) (d) requires that property that seeks 70% impervious cover instead of 40% must provide innovative water quality measures, so the site will provide a rain garden for roof runoff and porous pavement and sidewalks to treat the required first‐flush of runoff. Your favorable consideration of this request is appreciated. If you have any questions, please call me at 512‐569‐9830. Sincerely, James M Schissler James M. Schissler, P.E.

1010 Clermont August 12, 2020 Purpose • Seeking approval under LDC Section 25-2-735 (D) (2) (d) for the impervious cover at 69%, which is greater than the 40% allowed in the Festival Beach Waterfront Overlay sub-district. This will be a reduction from the existing 81% impervious cover for the former used car site and well below the zoning limit of 90%. Water quality measures consisting of a rain garden and porous pavement and sidewalk. 2 REASON • The triangular shaped property is the remaining portions of three lots after the TxDOT right-of-way purchase for IH 35, which severely limits the size of the property and therefore the portion of the property that can be used for parking and building. Approximately 47.5 percent of three original lots was purchased by TxDOT. • There is a 25 foot electric transmission easement across the west side of the lot, which severely limits the footprint of the building. Additionally, there is an SF-3 zoned lot a couple lots east of the property, so it is subject to compatibility height limit of 3 stories. 3 INFORMATION • Area Character • The site is on the IH 35 frontage road and is adjacent to commercial property, the site is zoned to allow administrative office use so will not affect the adjacent uses. The adjacent properties are zoned for commercial uses. 4 INFORMATION • The small administrative office building will not generate high traffic volumes and the location on IH 35 frontage road in downtown will facilitate alternate mobility options. A shower will be provided for tenant to use to facilitate bicycle riding and alternate transportation options. There are 11 parking spaces on the site. • The building is small enough to use City of Austin Resource Recovery for trash collection on Clermont Avenue, and Clermont Avenue has parking on both sides of the street. • The project includes a 10-foot wide shared use path along IH-35 frontage road to facilitate pedestrian and bicyclist access to the property and along the frontage road from adjacent streets without entering the travel lanes. • The zoning ordinance for the property restricts the allowable uses by listing over 30 prohibited uses, including medical offices, general retail sales, consumer convenience services, restaurants, software development and all automotive related uses. 5 Site previously used as used car sales lot with billboard in center and other signage. 6 7 PROPRTY PROFILE 8 PROPRTY …

Administrative Office Building in a “GR-MU-V-CO-NP”, Community Commercial – Mixed Use - Vertical Mixed Use building – Conditional Overlay – Neighborhood Plan zoning district. (East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Plan) BOARD’S DECISION: The public hearing was closed by Chair Don Leighton- Burwell, Board Member Michael Von Ohlen motions to Grant, Board Member William Hodge seconds on an 11-0 vote; GRANTED. EXPIRATION DATE: August 10, 2021 FINDING: 1. The Zoning regulations applicable to the property do not allow for a reasonable use because: this is not a request for variance from a zoning regulations 2. (a) The hardship for which the variance is requested is unique to the property in that: the triangular shape of the remaining portions of the lots after TxDOT right of way purchase for IH-35 severely limits the size of the site and therefore the portion of the site that can be used for parking, the Waterfront Overlay also limits impervious cover to 70 percent well below the 90 percent allowed by zoning. (b) The hardship is not general to the area in which the property is located because: other lots on the block are rectangular shaped whereas this site is the end of the block that had TxDOT right of way purchased for construction of IH-35; approximately 47.5 percent of the original lots was purchased by TxDOT, irregular lot. 3. The variance will not alter the character of the area adjacent to the property, will not impair the use of adjacent conforming property, and will not impair the purpose of the regulations of the zoning district in which the property is located because: the site is on the IH-35 frontage road and is adjacent to commercial property, the site is zoned to allow administrative office use …
