04-21-1999 DEVELOPMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE (DRC) MEETING April 21, 1999 Following are the summary minutes of the Development Review Committee (DRC)meeting on April 21, 1999, held at City Council Chambers. Members Present: Brian Denmark(PLNG) Jim Ericson(DSD) Jorge Garcia(JU) Robert Garza(CLC Engineering) Staff Present: Tony Aguirre (JU) Sheri Anderson(PLNG) Mike Johnson(Traffic Operations) Robert Kyle (PLNG) Vince Sanchez (JU) Dan Soriano (PLNG) Others Present: Eddie Binns Harold Denton Tatt Everhart(Chisholm's Ltd.) Jack Pickle Charley Trego 1. Pre-application meeting for lands of Jack Pickle on the south side of Highway 70 along Rinconada Rd. alignment. Denmark stated he'd met with Harold Denton and Jack Pickle and suggested they meet with the DRC to discuss issues to ensure there are no major issues prior to submittal of an application. Pickle proceeded to describe the area and the master plan. He stated most of it is already zoned, then described the zoning in detail and what will be platted. Then Denton began to explain the breakdown of the area of discussion as well as the roads, highways, etc. in the area. He stated he wanted access to the future community college. He also named changes to the plan. Denton affirmed that one of the overlying issues is maintenance of the arroyo. Pickle is investigating putting the arroyo system into some public entity so the entire system will be available to the city for storm water management. He said, "We want to maintain some continuing public control over the use to maintain its integrity as an environmental area." Pickle also said regarding the garden that"We want that to be more of a developed garden-type thing ... natural vegetation, not stripping out the vegetation or anything... We're trying to create some `places' in Las Cruces." Regarding Northrise Drive, they want to treat it more like a boulevard with some divided medians and more landscaping to slow traffic down and to create more of a park atmosphere. Pickle remarked how Las Cruces has no real urban center and where, as the city grows, an urban center could be developed. This would probably happen around years 2010 to 2020. A lot of activity is expected in the future. They foresee the potential of pedestrian, possibly public,transportation. As an afterthought, Pickle announced that there are hills and some green areas that are intended to be preserved. They do not intend to flatten them out. In general, their future plans are schematic at this point. Denmark remarked that Pickle's presentation is a proposed amendment to the Las Alamedas master plan. At that time, Sanchez remarked on utilities. He said that sewer depends on the timing of Sonoma Ranch north. Regarding gas,there is a capacity issue even though there is a Rio Grande gas line there. They will connect to the city gas line at Sonoma Ranch north(up the arroyo and down Sonoma Ranch). Denmark responded to Sanchez's presentation by saying: "So those are comments that need to be added to the master plan when it's taken to PRC as noted conditions if that's an issue. I don't think it's a problem. I think it's understood."' Dan Soriano provided information on drainage. Then Denmark stated, "You're going to have to resubmit a preliminary plat and a final plat." Kyle said, "I have to re-amend the Chaparral Hills master plan. Denmark: "I think at this application, they're addressing the master plan. So if they get this approved,they'll fall off the preliminary plat." Pickle commented they would probably be reducing the number of lots in there; that is something that could be approved administratively. Denmark responded that they would have to look at the Code. Denmark asked for clarification of whether Pickle is submitting the entire thing as an amendment or if he was just doing the village part. Pickle replied, "I'd like to get the master plan on the books. We probably won't do anything east of Sonoma Ranch for a decade." Then Denmark said, "One question I have will be to check your Northrise Road and how that ties into the state master plan that was approved and annexed into the City." Pickle: "It doesn't abut us." Denmark: "Because they show the road, we need to make sure that ties in." Denmark: Another issue is on your Chaparral Hills. When that first went through, we didn't allow any residential lot frontage on the major local, and that might be an issue at the preliminary plat level... In conclusion of discussion of the case, Denmark said that, based on the comments, Pickle's proposal is acceptable. He suggested that he submit the master plan, whereupon it will go to review and to P&Z. Denmark told Pickle that he (Pickle) needs to talk to Rollie Wright and Jim Ericson about the drainage issue in Sandhill Village. Denmark said he would contact Ericson about scheduling an appointment with Pickle. 2. Preapplication review of proposal in University Mesa. Charley Trego proposal south of Tortugas. In his presentation, Charley Trego described the changes he had made in the plan as per the requests made by the DRC. The changes involved the size of right-of-way, sewage capacity, location of lots, subdivision drainage, and design of the lots. Denmark asked about the proposal of the pond. Dan Lilley is the designer of it. Trego intends to have retention and remarked that on-site ponding is available. Robert Garza described how this type of ponding is problematic. Dirt or grass were proposed as the materials for the pond. Garza and Denmark responded with the following comments. Garza: "It would be multi-use." Denmark: "You'd have to put in gentle slopes or put in a retaining wall to flatten it out." Trego: "It's zoned R-2... We would make the cul-de-sac big enough that hopefully we would have type of tag into it for one of the last lines..." In summation of the pond issue, Brian told them to come back with a proposal on the pond. Jim Ericson and Rollie need to be at that meeting to talk about it. Someone said he would have layouts and proposals at this future meeting. An extensive discussion ensued about tracts and lots. At the end of this conversation, Brian said that something needed to be conditioned. In terms of engineering,the applicants need to come back with information about the transition from the existing road to the ?. Upon examining a map, Denmark said, "Dan, you need to taper your right-of-way a little bit and ask for a variance to the length of the cul-de-sac. Turn in a proposal." Then a conversation began about the landscaping for a median. What needs to be done are: The applicants must: -turn in a proposal on the retention of the pond, and -turn in a proposal on tapering of the right-of-way and length of the cul-de-sac 3. AmeriWest Subdivision - by Eddie Binns At first, discussion centered around options Binns had been given at a previous meeting regarding access to the lot. Shared curb cuts was one option. Denmark suggested Binns meet with Robert Garza and then turn in a proposal, to get something worked out now. Binns can turn in proposal that defines the minimum frontage that will be allowable so there won't have to be sharing any more. Denmark said they will put down a note as a condition to the subdivision so this issue does not arise again. The majority of the discussion consisted of plats, lots, driveways, and easements. A number of misunderstandings arose regarding these topics that everyone tried to resolve. Staff asserted that now was the time to take care of a particular easement. Near the end, Denmark asserted that he (Binns)needed to work something out with Garza. Then staff would examine what Garza thought was appropriate. Garza then said he thought they could create a list of parameters regarding parking stalls and frontage and put them in the form of a matrix. Kyle said something about a second review.
