Case 66370W: East Miller Tracts Subdivision Waiver Request • A request for approval of a waiver to the required road improvements associated with a proposed alternate summary subdivision known as East Miller Tracts Subdivision. • The proposed subdivision requires the applicant to provide the required road improvements to two adjacent roadways; Aldrich Road and Wilt Avenue. • The applicant is proposing a 100% waiver to the required road improvements and is offering no alternatives to the full improvements. • The subject property encompasses 4.294 +/- acres, is zoned REM (Single -Family Residential Estates Mobile) and is located on the northwest corner of Aldrich Road and Wilt Avenue; a.k.a. 6501 Aldrich Road. • Submitted by Moy Surveying, Inc. on behalf of Steve Miller, property owner. Kyle: We have one new business item, Case 66370W, East Miller Tracts Subdivision Waiver Request. I would like to note that the applicant or their representative are not here at this time. They were advised of the meeting, is that correct staff? Ochoa: That is correct. Kyle: All right. Um, at, at this time I'd like to just go ahead and at least discuss and, and take action on this waiver request. If the applicants wish to have the DRC rehear it when they are present then we can do so. Staff will you give us a briefing. Ochoa: Sure thing. This is a proposed waiver request to a proposed alternate summary subdivision known as the East Miller Tracts Subdivision. It is a proposed subdivision of an existing about, little more than four and a quater acre parcel. Uh existing, essentially it's located south of Jefferson Lane, west of Wilt Avenue, and north of Aldrich Road, so it has frontage along three roadways out there. The applicant is proposing to subdivide the, the existing tract. They were previously subdivided tract into two lots, each measuring just under two acres in size. With the proposed subdivision they are required to provide all adjacent roadway dedication and improvement requirements that are required by the Design Standards. 2 I Jefferson Lane is completely built out I believe, that was built out by the 2 City and dedicated, so nothing's required there. The two roads that are in 3 question; that would be Wilt Avenue which is a proposed collector 4 roadway and Aldridge Road as well. So they would be required to provide 5 uh all roadway improvements and dedication requirements. The applicant 6 is proposing to do all dedication requirements as required by code but is 7 requesting the waiver to the road improvements to the adjacent property 8 for Aldridge Road which is about, about 263 feet in length and Wilt Avenue 9 which is uh about almost 500, about, almost, almost 600 feet of linear area 10 along Wilt Avenue. Uh, the reason or this is the applicant is just stating 11 that you know building these out uh would be a great cost just to do a two- 12 lot subdivision essentially. Other than that the, the waiver request did go 13 out for review. All reviewing departments did deny the request, except for 14 utilities with the condition that they would support whatever uh other 15 departments would, excuse me, would a, would accept. Other than that, 16 that is essentially it. 17 18 Kyle: Okay. On the subdivision, is it just proposed two -lot subdivision? Do we 19 have a proposed use on it or are they just subdividing it? 20 21 Ochoa. Um, the property is zoned REM, single-family residential estate mobile. 22 There is an existing home on the, that would be on the southern lot, the 23 northern lot which is the one fronting Jefferson and Wilt would essentially 24 allow for single-family home as well. That's a single, or a mobile home or 25 manufactured home, but nothing's being proposed for an additional home 26 as of now. 27 28 Kyle: Okay. All right, well we'll go around the room. Utilities, any new 29 information? 30 31. Montoya: No. Just like what Adam has, has said that we does not have issues with 32 this waiver, however we will support the recommendation from other City 33 Departments. 34 35 Kyle: MPO. 36 37 Murphy: No additional comments. 38 39 Kyle: Las Cruces Fire. 40 41 Dubbin: I think the Subdivision Code is very clear. I think that the road 42 improvements, utility improvements need to be made if the subdivision is 43 to go forward. 44 45 Kyle: Engineering and Technical Services. 46 3 2 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 Dominguez: No additional information and I, 1 don't believe we will support the waiver Kyle: Okay. Um, just to note for the record on the southeast corner of Jefferson and Wilt there was a subdivision, a property, a two -lot split proposed, Sierra Tracts. At that time those applicants were requesting a waiver for their pro rata share of improvements as well. At that time the DRC did recommend denial of the waiver. Ultimately that waiver was approved by the City Council on that two -lot subdivision. They did provide their necessary right-of-way though. I just wanted to frame that for the context of this area, that there has been and continues to be future development in the area along those major roadways with no improvements being made. Um as the applicant is not here, anybody else, any other comments? Then I would entertain a motion to approve or recommend approval of the proposed waiver request for right-of-way and um improvements. Murphy: Move to approve the requested waiver. Dominguez: Second. Kyle: Okay, it's been moved and seconded to recommend approval of the requested waiver. All those in favor please submit by saying "aye." NO RESPONSES. Kyle: None noted. All those opposed. MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. Kyle: It's recommended to deny the request. The case will then proceed forward to the Planning and Zoning Commission for their commendation to City Council. Adam do we have an estimated date on that? Ochoa: Yes, that should be going before City Council in June, I'm sorry, Planning and Zoning Commission on June 28th I believe is the next Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. City Council then a month or so after that. Kyle: Very well. V. ADJOURNMENT (9:08 a.m.) Kyle: Any other business before the DRC today? Seeing none. I'd entertain a motion to adjourn. Murphy: So moved. C! 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 Dominguez: Second. Kyle: It's been moved and seconded. All those in favor please signify by saying "aye." MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. Kyle: We are adjourned. It is 9:08. Chairper n 5
