He added that during the <br /> meeting the City Council would conduct a public hearing with respect to Ordinance No. 2006-02 <br /> which proposed to amend Section 850 of the City Code (the "Zoning Ordinance.) Mr. Hughes <br /> noted the amendment principally focused on the requirements of the Planned Commercial <br /> District-3 (PCD-3) zone which comprised most of the retail-oriented properties in the Greater <br /> Southdale Area. He added there were no PCD-3 properties in any other areas of the City. Mr. <br /> Hughes said he had submitted to the Council a "red-lined" version of the relevant portions of the <br /> Zoning Ordinance Section 850 which provided a context for the changes proposed by Ordinance <br /> No. 2006-02. <br /> Mr. Hughes explained the proposed ordinance was offered for two reasons: First, it provided an <br /> initial step toward implementing some of the concepts contained in the Greater Southdale Area <br /> Land Use and Transportation Study. Second, it provided an ordinance context for the City <br /> Council's evaluation of the proposal with respect to the Galleria property. <br /> Mr. Hughes said at their February 13, 2006, Council Work Session a draft of the subject ordinance <br /> was reviewed. He asked the Council to note the following changes resulting from the work <br /> session: <br /> • The PCD-3 district was split into the area north of W. 70th Street and the area south of W. <br /> 70th Street. The present PCD-3 code requirements for the area south of 70th would remain <br /> essentially unchanged from the current rules. <br /> • The height limit for the areas east of York and west of France was reduced from eight <br /> stories (as contained in the original draft) to four stories. <br /> • A new Section 12 was added to the proposed ordinance prescribing design standards for <br /> parking ramps. Please note that these requirements would apply to all parking ramps - <br /> not just those in the PCD-3 district. <br /> • A new Section 13 was added prescribing requirements for sidewalks and trails. Please <br /> note that these requirements would apply to any property seeking rezoning, final <br /> development plan or conditional use approval - not just those properties in the PCD-3 <br /> district. <br /> OVERVIEW OF PROPOSED CHANGES TO PCD-3 SUBDISTRICT <br /> Page 2 <br />
