Case 71056: Metro Verde PUD Amendment No. 1 Final Site Plan Amendment No. 1 (Right-of-way width deviation) • A request for approval of a 40-foot-wide right-of-way for a proposed roadway known as Santa Julia associated with a subdivision known as Metro Verde PUD Amendment No. 1 Final Site Plan Amendment No. 1. • The proposed modified roadway runs east to west between Red Hawk golf Club to Tioga. The roadway provides access to 49 single-family residential lots within the subdivision. • The proposed subdivision encompasses 24.54 +/- acres, is zoned PUD (Planned Unit Development) and is located north of Arroyo Road. • Submitted by Sierra Norte Development LLC. Kyle: New business is Case 71056: Metro Verde PUD Amendment Number 1 Final Site Plan Amendment Number 1. Staff can you give us a run down on what's being proposed. Gonzales: This is a request for approval for deviation to the 40-foot right-of-way proposed roadway for Santa Julia that is associated with the subdivision of Metro Verde PUD Amendment Number 1 Final Site Plan Amendment Number 1. The applicants are requesting to change the right-of-way for Santa Julia from 50-feet to 40-feet. Per the concept plan it does require DRCs approval. The property is located in between Red Hawk Golf Road and Tioga Road, runs east to west. And it is north of Arroyo Road. The property is encompassing about 24 acres and the property is zoned PUD. That's really about it. That's what we're changing. And the connectivity from the roadways are being changed as well. Arroyo Road used to be connecting through the subdivision, it has been removed as well as two connecting points off of Red Hawk Golf Road that are changing. Kyle: Applicants what do you ... Moscato: Well I met with Sara and Katherine and I was told that because this part of the PUD as opposed to Metro Verde South does not have a provision where these rights -of -ways can be adjusted administratively, we had to come to DRC. It's basically the same right-of-way and cross section that we've used in Metro Verde South already, most recently in Phase 1 B. The back of curb to back of curb fit within the approved concept plan with for pavement. So it's really just the right-of-way adjustment which has been approved before just not for this particular area. Kyle: Okay. Sells: Here's a sheet Robert that shows the comparison of what we're proposing and what it was. Top is what is approved and bottom is what we're proposing. 1 2 Kyle: Okay, so it was a direct connect and now you're bringing it through. 3 4 Moscato: And we did bring this to (inaudible). 5 6 Kyle: Okay. 7 8 Sells: And here's what the roadway cross sections would look like. This is the 9 40-foot. It's 31 back of curb to back of curb with (inaudible) and sidewalk. 10 11 Kyle: But the travel lanes and everything are remaining the same. 12 13 Sells: The same. 14 15 Kyle: We're just doing sidewalk on the one. 16 17 Sells: One side. 18 19 Kyle Side. 20 21 Sell: Yes sir. 22 23 Moscato: Because the access was just one way. 24 25 Kyle: Okay. 26 27 Moscato: That's just what we did in Phase 1 E. It's only the southern lots that ... 28 29 Kyle: That'll front that. Okay, so the others are all go off Castellana. 30 31 Moscato: Right. 32 33 Kyle: Okay. 34 35 Dominguez: I just have a question from the drawing that you're providing over here. It 36 looks like the streets are not ... 37 38 Sells: It's been adjusted. 39 40 Dominguez: Okay. So it's going ... 41 42 Sells: It's going to be ...well ... 43 44 Dominguez: Because this one looks like it was. 45 46 Moscato: And it's been adjusted, it's just the ... so we just redrew the returns. 3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 Dominguez: Okay so it will align? Moscato: Uh huh. Dominguez: Okay. Kyle: MPO. Murphy: A quick question for staff. I'm not sure I heard it right. Sara what did you say about Arroyo Road not continuing? Gonzales: The previous one actually showed it going through the lots to the north. There was actually a driving pattern thru here. Murphy: On Arroyo Road? Gonzales: Yes. So from Arroyo Road. Murphy: Oh from Arroyo Road. Gonzales: Yes. Moscato: Arroyo Road ... Gonzales: Arroyo Road is still running east and west still. Murphy: Is still going to have its alignment. Gonzales: Yes. Murphy: Okay. Gonzales: It's not changing its alignment. There just used to be a pathway through that there was a road running in so you'd have these smaller blocks. Murphy: All right. I'm sorry. The way I heard it was going to be discontinue. All right. Thank you. Moscato: And we also reduced the density by 40 to 50%. Kyle: Utilities. Montoya: The Utility Department does not have comments for the roadway width or the revise of the layout, however we have pending comments for utility EI 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 sheets that is included with this plan set, so I just want to see that how do we move forward on approving this submittal with the pending comments. Sells: Well this meeting is to address the roadway width and for a follow-up we need to address the comments. Montoya: Okay, but then the sheets has to be ... Sells: You want to see the utility sheet before we say anything here. Here, your comments. Montoya: I would like to review these after this meeting so ... Gonzales: We'll still have a second. Montoya: Okay. Gonzales: We'll still have a second review. Kyle: This is just to approve the amendment for the roadway. Montoya: Okay so we will talk about that after this meeting. Kyle: Yeah. Engineering. Dominguez: No, my only concern was just that the roads didn't align, but if it's going to be aligning we no other concerns. Kyle: Fire. Dubbin: Fire has no issues. Kyle: Applicants, any thing else you want to add? I have some commentary that I'll reserve my rights at this point. No other comments? MPO anything else? Murphy: No other comments. Kyle: If there's no other comments, then I would entertain a motion to approve the right-of-way deviation for this proposal. Gonzales: I vote that we approve the right-of-way deviation for 50-feet to 40-feet and the change of the layout for the plan for the roadways. Dominguez: Second. 6� 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 Kyle: It's been moved and seconded, All those in favor please signify by saying "aye." MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.
