Taylor Haley, attorney for Anne Mo Hassett and Laura Ozment, applicant.  Staff recommends approval of the abandonment, subject to the reservation of utility easements. (P. Andrews) Link

 

                        Interim County Engineer Paul Andrews reported the following:

SOURCE OF TITLE: Plat for the East Beach subdivision recorded in Deed Book 3R, Pages 312-315, Dated May 30, 1924.

PRESENT USE OF RIGHT-OF-WAY: This portion of the right-of-way is currently not opened to the public, but is used by utilities to service the houses in the area.

PAST HISTORY: To the best of staff’s determination, this portion of the right-of-way has not been opened for use of the public since dedication.

POTENTIAL USE IN THE FUTURE: This portion of the right-of-way could be used for access to adjacent property. It could also be used to access and contain utilities.

BENEFIT TO PUBLIC IN CONTINUING USAGE: The public will continue to benefit from the ability to use this right-of-way for access and/or utilities.

BENEFIT TO PUBLIC IN ABANDONMENT: Abandonment would return the property to the tax digest.

For the above reasons, staff concurred with the request for the abandonment of the 20 foot alley between Seventh Street and Eighth Street in block 13 of the East Beach Subdivision adjacent to 4316 Seventh Street (lot 10) and 4315 Eighth Street (a portion of lot 9 and lot 11), provided utility easements are reserved.

           

This item was opened for public comment and Taylor Haley, agent for applicant, was present to answer any questions.  Ms. Haley said she had contacted all of the adjacent property owners to invite them to join in on the abandonment, but no one was interested.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Sublett and seconded by Commissioner Hunt to approve the abandonment of a portion of the 20-foot alley between Seventh and Eighth Streets in block 13 of the East Beach subdivision with easement rights being retained for utilities.  The motion carried unanimously.  Resolution #R-23-12

 

 

PUBLIC HEARING – Land Use

 

5.         ZM2376 (I) Yacht Club Tract - Consider a request to rezone from PD (Planned Development) to PD (Planned Development) by revising the planned development text for Yacht Club Tract, a 15.442 acre property.   The purpose of the rezoning is to allow for a less dense development option.  Parcel ID: 04-05788 and 04-05821.  Applicant Bill Edenfield, agent for C.T. Graham, Yacht Club, LLC, owner. Staff recommends approval (D. Hainley)  Link

 

Community Development Director David Hainley reported the following:

This tract of land is located on the right side of Kings Way at the base of the Frederica River Bridge approaching the Gateway traffic circle. In 2008 this property was zoned PD and allowed a mix of uses such as multi-family residential, commercial, hotel and marina uses with a cap of 110 dwelling units.

This application is to allow single family detached residential development, which was not listed among the allowed residential uses. It also incorporates standards within the district for lot sizes and the subdivision of lots, establishes tree planting standards for potential hotel and commercial uses, and describes allowed signage.  The applicant also reduces the number of dwelling units to 40.

The Islands Planning Commission recommended approval amending the text to add the single-family detached residential use and other criteria for the property knows as the “Yacht Club Tract” fronting on Torras Causeway including the irrigated and landscaped buffer on the outside wall of Kings Way.

                                Several Commissioners were concerned about egress and ingress into the property. Mr. Hainley responded that the entryway was designed by the traffic engineer that designed the Gateway project. The exit will be right-out only.  The Board asked staff to review the traffic proposal again to confirm it is safe and report its findings at an upcoming meeting.

 

                                This item was opened for public comment and Bill Edenfield, agent for the applicant, was available to answer questions. He said the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) had reviewed and approved the proposed entryway.  Mr. Edenfield said a permit had been approved for a new dock at this location.

 

                A motion was made by Commissioner Sublett and seconded by Commissioner Clark to approve application ZM2376, to rezone from the current PD (Planned Development) to a revised PD (Planned Development) for property consisting of 15.442 acres, amending the text to add the single family detached residential use and other criteria for the property known as the “Yacht Club Tract” fronting on Torras Causeway, including the irrigated and landscaped buffer on the outside wall of Kings Way.  Community Development Director David Hainley and staff is tasked with reviewing options for traffic safety and reporting findings at an upcoming meeting. The motion carried 4-2 with Commissioner Taylor and Commissioner Strickland opposed.  Resolution #R-24-12

 

6.         ZV2391 229 Mallery Street - Consider a request for a variance to Article 8 of the Zoning Ordinance to allow more signs than permitted by ordinance. The property is located at 229 Mallery Street.  Parcel ID: 04-04633.  St. Simons Sweets, Tony and Sharon Clark, applicant. Staff recommends denial. (D. Hainley)  Link

 

Mr. Hainley reported this request is for signage at 229 Mallery Street, which is home to St. Simons Sweets. The ordinance permits a maximum of two building signs to the exterior of any business. Currently there are eight observed signs on the exterior of this business.

 

This item was opened for public comment, and Sharon Clark asked the Board to consider the variance request.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Hunt and seconded by Commissioner Taylor to deny variance application ZV2391 to allow more signs than allowed by the Zoning Ordinance for 229 Mallery Street. The motion carried 5-1 with Commissioner Sublett opposed.
