Affidavits of Not- <br />ice were presented by Clerk, approved as to form and ordered placed on file. <br />Mr. Hughes presented the petition of Prime Development Corporation for R-1 <br />Residential District to POD-1 Planned Office District for a 4.8 acre site gen, <br />erally located in the Northeast quadrant of County Road 18 and W. 7th Street. <br />He advised that the site is surrounded by Van Valkenburg Park on the East and <br />across the street, Grandview Cemetery on the North and across the street and <br />by vacant land which is zoned office and multiple residential district to the <br />South and across the street, and recalled that, several months ago, the Bffice <br />District zoning request of Mr. Darrel Farr had been withdrawn. Mr. Hughes <br />advised that the Community Development and Planning Commission had reviewed <br />plans for this project which consists of a townhouse style office development of <br />one story designed for 34 individual medical and dental offices containing <br />40,750 square feet of floor area, and stressed that the City's ongoing parking' <br />requirement for this project will be based upon the actual number of doctors, <br />rather than on floor area, and that the leasing of the units may be somewhat <br />restricted because of this requirement. He noted also his concern about the fact: <br />that the rear of the development will be oriented toward the street and said that <br />treatment of the rear of these buildings in terms of building materials, land- <br />scaping, garbage storage, etc., should be carefully considered at the time the .:-. <br />final plans are reviewed. <br />Planning Commission had recommended preliminary rezoning approval subject to 1) <br />final plat being conditioned on acceptable overall development plans; and 2) an <br />easement or fee ownership must be dedicated to allow access to Van Valkenburg <br />Park. He clarified that, if the fee ownership is dedicated, this should repre- <br />sent a credit toward the developer's subdivision dedication requirement. Mr. <br />Chuck Tuchfarber of Prime Development Corporation, advised that 30 to 35 doctors <br />will practice at this complex and that parking as planned will be adequate. <br />further discussion being heard, Member Schmidt offered Ordinance No. 811-A164 <br />for First Reading as follows: <br />Mr. Hughes advised that the Community Development and <br />NO <br />ORDINANCE NO. 811-Al64 <br />AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE (NO. 811) <br />BY ADDING TO THE PLANNED OPFICE DISTRICT <br />Section 1.
