Applications for Land Use Management Ordinance Text Amendment, a Zoning Atlas Amendment, and the East 54 Mixed-Use Development (aka University Village) Special Use Permit Modification


February 26, 2007




Before the Council tonight are three applications:


The purpose of this cover memorandum is to forward the Town Manager’s recommendations to the Council for the above applications.  Please refer to the three accompanying memorandums for additional information on this matter.




I have reviewed and discussed the key issues with Town staff. Based on the information in the record to date, I believe that the Council could make the findings required to approve: 1) the application for a text amendment to the Land Use Management Ordinance; 2) the request for a Zoning Atlas Amendment; and 3) the application for a Special Use Permit Modification.


My recommendation is that the Council: 1) enact an Ordinance to amend the text of the Land Use Management Ordinance, to amend the Mixed Use-Village (MU-V) zoning district; 2) enact an Ordinance, approving the request for a Zoning Atlas Amendment to rezone the proposed East 54 Mixed-Use Development site from Community Commercial (CC) to Mixed Use-Village (MU-V); and 3) adopt Revised Resolution A, approving the East 54 Special Use Permit Modification application.


I also recommend that the Council approve the applicant’s revised affordable housing proposal as described under the Key Issues section in the Special Use Permit Modification memorandum.
