PUBLIC HEARING – Land Use

 

3.         ZM3168 Canal Crossing Amendment #2 - Consider a request to amend the Planned Development text for the Canal Crossing Planned Development. The purpose of the request is to change the required parking calculations from 4.5 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross leasable space to 4 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross leasable space. This property is located on the east side of Canal Road, approximately 500-feet from its intersection with Golden Isles Parkway. Parcel IDs: 03-03570 & 03-26848.  Applicant: Robert Ussery, Ussery-Rule Architects, agent, for Callaway Land Company, Rees 512, LLC, applicants and owners.  (D. Hainley) REPORT

 

Community Development Director David Hainley reported the request is to amend the existing Planned Development Text for the Canal Crossing Planned Development (PD). The existing PD text requires parking spaces to be calculated at 4.5 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross leasable space. The applicant requests that calculation be changed to 4 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross leasable space. This change to the parking calculations would reduce the number of required parking spaces from 1,502 to 1,335 (167 spaces) using the square footage shown on the approved site plan. The applicant has included a conceptual leasing plan to show what this change in parking space requirement might look like. This proposed change would only impact the retail centers and not the restaurants. The parking requirements for the restaurants would still come from the Glynn County Zoning Ordinance, as stated in the PD Text.

The Mainland Planning Commission and staff recommended approval of the request.

This item was opened for public comment and John Callaway, the developer, asked for approval and provided an update on the project. Julian Smith suggested parking be set aside for access to the Altamaha Canal.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Stambaugh and seconded by Commissioner Booker to approve rezoning application ZM3168 to change the Planned Development (PD) text of the Canal Crossing PD to allow parking spaces for retail stores to be calculated at four (4) spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross leasable space. The motion carried unanimously. Resolution #R-11-16

 

4.         ZM3126 The Lucas Building - Consider a request to rezone lot 4 of Sea Marsh Professional Site from OC (Office Commercial) to PD (Planned Development). This lot is located at 301 Sea Island Road, approximately 900 feet east of its intersection with Frederica Road. Parcel ID: 04-14404. Applicant: Austin Catts with Catts and Brooks LLC., agent for Lucas Properties Holdings, LLC. (D. Hainley) REPORT

 

The applicant requested a change in zoning for an office building located at 301 Sea Island Road. The proposed PD text will limit the use of the building to: Insurance Agency, office uses that do not include any storage, sale, rental or servicing of goods on the premises, and Real Estate Agency. The PD Text also reduces the required parking spaces from one (1) space per two hundred (200) square feet of floor space to one (1) space per three-hundred (300) square feet of floor space. The site plan accompanying the rezoning application was approved with the application. On the site plan, the applicant proposes a 3,463 square foot addition on the north side of the building. The applicant also proposes the installation of a Type “A” alternate buffer at the rear of the property and a Type “E” buffer at the front of the property. There is already a twenty (20) foot buffer agreement between the applicant and the Black Banks Property Owners Association on the east side of the property.

The Islands Planning Commission and staff recommended approval of this amendment.

This item was opened for public comment and Arthur Lucas, the applicant; Jonathan Roberts, of Roberts Civil Engineering; and, Larry Bryson, architect, spoke in favor of the rezoning. Frank Brown, attorney for the Stuttering Foundation, a tenant on the property, and Michael Whelan, of Taylor Engineering, spoke in opposition. Daniel Parshley and Julian Smith also spoke against this application.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Coleman and seconded by Commissioner Booker to refer this application to the Islands Planning Commission (IPC).  

Commissioner Provenzano said the IPC had heard this application twice.

The motion failed for lack of a majority vote with Commissioner Stambaugh, Commissioner Browning, Commissioner Strickland, Commissioner Provenzano, and Commissioner Brunson opposed.

 

A motion was made Commissioner Provenzano and seconded by Commissioner Brunson to approve rezoning application ZM3126 with the following conditions: 1) “storage” is removed from the PD Text as a permitted accessory use for the property; 2) all impervious pavement and all existing and proposed roof areas shall drain away from the northern drainage system; and, 3) installation of a tide gate on the northern drainage system take place. The motion carried 5-2 with Commissioner Coleman and Commissioner Booker opposed. Resolution #R-12-16

 

5.         TA3178: Consider an amendment to Section 809 of the Zoning Ordinance of Glynn County, Georgia to amend the Special Provisions to address outdoor advertising signs on Altama Avenue, and for other purposes. REPORT

 

Community Development Director David Hainley reported this amendment to Article VIII, Section 809, would allow outdoor advertising signs (billboards) on major arterial local roads (such as Altama Avenue). This amendment to the ordinance would apply to the county portions of Altama Avenue, from Fourth Avenue on the south, to Chapel Crossing Road on the north.    

Mr. Hainley reported there are billboards currently on Altama Avenue, but the ordinance does not allow them. This amendment would allow these billboards to remain.               

This item was opened for public comment and Julian Smith spoke in opposition to the amendment.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Stambaugh and seconded by Commissioner Booker to approve the amendment. The motion carried unanimously. Ordinance #O-2016-05

 

6.         TA3179: Consider amendments to Sections 805.1, 809(d)(1)i, and 809(d)(2)ii(d)3 of the Zoning Ordinance of Glynn County, Georgia to update spacing requirements and permitable locations of signs relative to interstate highway ramps, and for other purposes. REPORT

                                    swooper sign swisher sign

Mr. Hainley reported the amendment would allow feather signs to be displayed a maximum of 90 days within a 12-month period, but no more than 30 consecutive days. It would require they be secured to resist uplift at a wind speed of 40 miles per hour; would be allowed one per business or location; could not exceed 32 square feet; and would not be allowed on St. Simons Island or Sea Island.

The Islands Planning Commission and Mainland Planning Commission recommended approval of the amendment. 

County Attorney Aaron Mumford recommended adding the following sentence to the proposed ordinance: “Feather signs shall not be permitted on St. Simons Island or Sea Island.”

                                This item was opened for public comment but no one addressed the Board.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Brunson and seconded by Commissioner Booker to approve the amendment, subject to the inclusion of the statement recommended by the County Attorney. The motion carried unanimously. Ordinance #O-2016-07

 

8.         TA3181: Consider an amendment to add Section 803.15.1 and to amend Sections 804.1 and 808.1 of the Zoning Ordinance of Glynn County, Georgia to add a definition for inflatable sign to provide regulations for the use of inflatable signs, and for other purposes. REPORT

 

Mr. Hainley reported the Islands Planning Commission and Mainland Planning Commission recommended approval of the amendment. 

These inflatable signs would be allowed on St. Simons Island.

This item was opened for public comment and Julian Smith spoke in favor of this amendment.

REPORT

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Brunson and seconded by Commissioner Coleman to approve this item. The motion carried unanimously.

 

30.       Consider approving the relocation and re-purposing of the Glynn County Public Works modular office building to the Glynn County Animal Control facility with funding in the amount of $67,008 to be provided by Capital Projects Fund fund balance and $32,992 to be provided by the General Fund fund balance. (J. Powell) (FC Vote: 3-0) REPORT

 

Community Services Director John Powell reported relocating the modular building would provide an additional 2,600 sq. feet of space, which would double the amount of space currently available at the Animal Control facility. The modular building would be placed such that it would not impede potential future construction. He added that $67,991 of the total funds for this project would provide for a lift station, the installation of high-speed fiber, and surgery and office equipment. These items will be transferred to the new facility if constructed in the future.

Commissioner Coleman asked that the Environmental Health Department test the building for mold prior to relocation.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Brunson and seconded by Commissioner Coleman to approve this item and thoroughly inspect the building for mold for the safety of the employees and animals. The motion carried unanimously.

                                                                                                                                                        

31.       Consider awarding the contract for construction of the Spur 25 at Perry Lane Road Intersection Improvements to Seaboard Construction in the amount of $1,515,778.  Funding for this project will be from SPLOST 4- Miscellaneous Roads.  Also transfer funds from unallocated SPLOST 4 funds to Misc Road Projects - SPLOST 4 and provide a project contingency. REPORT

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Provenzano and seconded by Commissioner Brunson to approve this item. The motion carried unanimously.

 

32.       Consider approving the submittal of an application to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (FEMA SAFER) grant to fund additional Fire Department personnel and approve a letter of commitment that the County will not conduct lay-offs or furloughs during the two-year life of the grant.  (R. Jordan) REPORT   This item was referred from the Finance Committee without a recommendation.    

 

Fire Chief Randy Jordan reported the SAFER grant provides funding to help increase or maintain the number of trained, frontline firefighters. The grant application will seek federal funding for additional staffing for the Glynn County Fire/Rescue Service. The grant pays 100% of salary and benefits for a 24 month period, excluding protective clothing and pre-employment physicals, a cost of $2,750. It requires an obligation from the County to maintain staffing levels for the 24-month cycle and has no retention requirement after the funding period.

                Chief Jordan offered several options: 1) request enough grant money to cover 30 positions ($1,281,900); 2) 21 positions ($897,331); 3) 9 positions ($384,570); or, 4) 17 positions (726,411). The cost of the 17 positions would equate to the amount of overtime spent in FY15.

There was concern that hiring these employees with grant money would place a burden on the County in two years when the grant funds were depleted. When the grant expires, the Board will either have to fund these positions or lose them. Chief Jordan said the employees hired under this grant would be required to sign a statement acknowledging this was grant-funded employment that would end when funds are depleted.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Booker and seconded by Commissioner Coleman to approve this item and apply for the grant to fund 30 positions. The motion carried 6-1 with Commissioner Stambaugh opposed.

 

33.       Consider authorizing staff to negotiate with Bangor Abatement to create a contract for review by the National Park Service. And to present the contract to the full Board of Commissioners when the contract is completed and approved by the National Park Service.  (J. Powell) (FC Vote: 3-0) REPORT  

 

In 2015, upon recommendation of the Finance Committee, the Board of Commissioners asked staff to submit Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for the private management of the Blythe Island Regional Park (BIRP). The RFPs were submitted and Bangor Abatement (d/b/a BA Services) was the only respondent.

Several commissioners expressed concern with contracting out the operations of the Park and wanted to allow the new leadership in the Recreation Department the opportunity to initiate their ideas to bring in more revenue.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Coleman to approve the item. (Clerk’s note: Commissioner Coleman intended for his motion to approve allowing the staff to continue operating the park. Upon realizing his motion to approve would authorize staff to negotiate the contract with the private company, he revised his motion.) Commissioner Brunson seconded the motion. (Clerk’s note: Commissioner Brunson intended to second the revised motion.)

In an effort to dispose of the unintended motion, the vote was taken. The vote was 1-6 with Commissioner Stambaugh voting in favor and all other commissioners voting in opposition. The motion failed.

 

A motion was then made by Commissioner Browning and seconded by Commissioner Brunson to reject the proposal submitted by Bangor Abatement, Inc. The motion carried 6-1 with Commissioner Stambaugh opposed.

 

Point of Privilege:

Commissioner Brunson announced he needed to leave the meeting to travel out of town for training.

 

34.       Approve the Amended and Restated Oglethorpe Conference Center Memorandum of Understanding by and Between the City of Brunswick and Glynn County. REPORT

           

County Attorney Aaron Mumford reported this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) amended the 2003 agreement between Glynn County and the City of Brunswick. The 2003 MOU stated the County would give the property at the corner of Newcastle Street and Bay Street, the site of the former Winchester Building (site of the former health department), to the City of Brunswick upon completion of the Oglethorpe Conference Center construction.

An amended and restated MOU was needed since the City has asked that the property be transferred before the conference center is built.

The Oglethorpe Conference Center is a SPLOST 4 project. The City has funds in SPLOST 5 for this conference center as well.

 Within three (3) years of this agreement, if the City has not completed the conference center on all or a portion of this property, the MOU requires the City pay the County the fair market value of the property.  If the conference center is not built on all or a portion of the County’s property, the City would also be required to reimburse SPLOST accounts for the SPLOST expenditures made to date; however, these funds shall be made available for use by the City to complete the project.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Booker and seconded by Commissioner Stambaugh to approve the Amended and Restated Oglethorpe Conference Center Memorandum of Understanding. The motion carried unanimously.
