Consider a request for a Rezoning of the rear portion of a commercial property from RS (Residential.:Single-Family Dwelling) District to GC -MD -2 (General Commercial -Multiple. Family Dwelling -2) District located at 7380 Bythewood Road. Minutes — October 29, 2019 Richard Faust of Faust Engineering and Surveying is requesting a Rezoning for the rear of the property located at 7380 Bythewood Road. Quail Land Company has purchased this tract of land as well as the tract to the north, which is zoned GC -MD (General Commercial - Multiple Family Dwelling). Plans are to develop the property as a unit and therefore needs to be zoned consistently. The Development Strategies diagram of the Comprehensive Plan designates this property to be within a neighborhood growth unit area..Effective planning strategies typically encourage commercial uses at major intersections and high-density housing along major arterial streets. Our City's Major Street and Highway Plan displays that Tram Road is a Secondary Arterial and Bythewood Road is a local street. Within the past fifteen (15) years, three (3) new- houses have been constructed along Bythewood Road. Rezoning this property for commercial use could encroach into a viable residential neighborhood. At a Joint Public Hearing held on October 21, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended 4:1 to deny the request for a Rezoning of the rear portion of a commercial property from RS (Residential Single -Family Dwelling) to GC -MD -2 (General Commercial -Multiple Family Dwelling -2) District. Denial of the ordinance.

The Central Beaumont Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses has applied for a Specific Use Permit to allow for temporary parking and.hookup of recreational vehicles (RV's) in an RM -H (Residential Multiple Family -High Density) District. The Jehovah's Witnesses Disaster Relief is a temporary relief effort working under the direction of the Texas Disaster Relief Committee of Jehovah's Witness. This group has determined that there is an immediate need for assistance for church members in repairing their homes after Tropical Storm Imelda. The applicant states that the RV's will be used for Minutes — October 29, 2019 housing only and will be placed at the center of the property, behind the existing church, on paved property that will not impede vehicular traffic. Three RV's will be located on the property for four (4) months. The church made a similar request in 2009, which was denied, then received a Specific Use Permit in January of last year, due to Hurricane Harvey. The same conditions are being suggested for this request. Landscaping was discussed as the original Specific Use Permit granted to the church required the church to maintain the existing 30' buffer or install screening with the reduced 10' buffer. Three RV hookups exist at the property, but the electrical is being upgraded from 30 amp to 50 -amp breakers. At a Joint Public Hearing held on October 21, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended 5:0 to approve the request for a Specific Use Permit to allow three RV's to be parked temporarily, for disaster relief, in a RM -H (Residential Multiple Family Dwelling -Highest Density) District zoning located at 2350 North Major Drive with the following conditions: 1.

Item tabled for two (2) weeks. Minutes — October 29, 2019 L.W. Beaumont, LLC received a Specific Use Permit to allow a sports bar at 6210 Phelan Boulevard in October 2018. Since opening, they have found they need additional bathrooms to service the outside service area. Little Woodrow's is located at the southeast most tip of the Colonnade Shopping Center. As a requirement for the original Specific Use Permit, screening and a masonry wall were installed. The new addition will be approximately 1;500 square feet and include new cooler/storage space and additional restrooms. This addition will be located along the east side of the building providing an additional bufferfrom noise for the adjacent residential neighborhood. It should be noted that concerns have been raised by other tenants about the availability of adequate parking. A parking analysis was conducted as part of this revised Specific Use Permit. It found that while demand for the parking spaces at the interior of the shopping center is high, the minimum of spaces has been provided at the shopping center, albeit some spaces are located farther afield at the perimeter of the shopping center. At a Joint Public Hearing held on October 21, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended 5:0 to approve the request for a Specific Use Permit to allow the expansion of a bar in a GC - MD (General Commercial -Multiple Family Dwelling) District with the following conditions: 1. Install an eight foot (8'.) tall opaque perimeter fence. 2. Keep litter in direct area of subject property contained. 3. No live music allowed. The Zoning Ordinance states, "The City Council shall not amend, supplement, change, modify or repeal any regulation, restriction or boundary or approve a Specific Use Permit where a protest against such change (has been filed), signed by the owners of twenty percent (205VO) or more either of the area of the lots included in such proposed change or of the lots or land immediately adjoining the same and extending two hundred (200) feet therefrom, except by the favorable vote of three-fourths (314) of all the members of the City Council." Protest against this request was received from more than 25% of the land immediately adjoining the subject property. Therefore, a vote of three-fourths (3/4) of the City Council shall be required to approve the requested Specific Use Permit. Approval of the request with the following conditions: 1. Install an eight foot (8') tall opaque fence. 2. Keep litter in direct area of subject property contained. 3. No live music allowed. Councilmember Neild moved to table this item for two (2) weeks.

The sports bar will occupy a space in a commercial strip which also houses a beauty school and retail. Security will be provided in the form of 3-4 bouncers. In 1997, City Council approved a specific use permit to allow an entertainment, recreational services and rental hall with the occasional sale of alcohol at this location. In 2011, a drinking place was approved, then in 2012 a bottle club was approved. Those businesses have since closed down and the space is now vacant. The immediate area facing the building along Concord and Steelton is developed commercially. At a Joint Public Hearing held on October 21, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended 5:0 to approve the request for a Specific Use Permit to allow a sports bar in a GC -MD (General Commercial — Multiple Family Dwelling) District located at 3430 Concord Road with the following conditions: 1.
