Mr. Galindo stated the City forwarded emails from the following individuals: Kay St.Onge; Matt Heyden; Lora Losi; Charles Tucker; David Botto, which was subsequently retracted; and Bruce Moia, the applicant.
Member Murray said she received an e-mail from Kay St. Onge on November 9, 2020.
Vice Chairman Richardson said he spoke to Mr. Moia about the tree ordinance but did not discuss this item.
Consent Agenda Item
REZ #2-2020 Huntington Park / Sketch Plat (Video start time 00:18:48)
Mr. Galindo asked if the Commission would like to hear both of tonight’s items as one presentation since they are essentially the same discussion on Huntington Park but will be two action items. Chairman Severs said the presentation and discussion can be heard as one and they will make into the two actions items.
Chairman Severs said he wanted to be sure that all e-mails were disclosed and that all Planning and Zoning Commission members and the applicant received all of the e-mails. Mr. Galindo stated the City forwarded emails from the following individuals: Kay St. Onge; Matt Heyden; Lora Losi; Charles Tucker; David Botto, who subsequently retracted his statement; and Bruce Moia, the applicant. All members of the Planning and Zoning Commission members confirmed receipt of the e-mail except for Secretary Speidel who said she did not receive them. Assistant City Attorney Farrell said all e-mails are available on the laptops. Secretary Speidel said she was okay with reviewing the e-mails during the meeting.
Chairman Severs asked Mr. Moia if he received all of the e-mails. Bruce Moia, P.E. on behalf of Holiday Builders, Inc. owner came to speak in favor of this item. Mr. Moia confirmed that he did receive all of the e-mails.
Mr. Galindo gave a PowerPoint presentation regarding to this item.
Mr. Galindo stated that there was a correction that he wanted to point out on page 73 of the agenda packet. The correction relates to the sketch plat. There were four recommended conditions listed. The applicant has since submitted a new cover sheet which is available tonight if needed. The coversheet addresses the first three conditions, which are no longer proposed conditions. The fourth condition is stating that a new concurrency assessment will be required before preliminary plat is approved.
Mr. Galindo said a second correction is on page 30 of the agenda packet. This correction relates to the transportation and concurrency. Mr. Galindo explained that this information is relating to traffic data from South Street and not Park Avenue. There is no current traffic data on South Park Avenue, therefore staff used the nearest collector road to gather data from. Mr. Galindo said a traffic study will be required.
Member Parrish asked what the code provision or statute that mandates access through wetlands. Mr. Galindo said there is no specific section that talks about access through wetlands. There are access requirements in the technical manuals. There is only one access point required based on the number of units in this development.
Member Murray said based on the information given, the road width of pavement is 22ft and if you include the road gutters it is 26ft. Member Murray asked if anything has changed regarding this information and was it an error. Member Murray asked if a wavier is needed. Mr. Galindo said this was a question for the applicant. Member Murray said she would wait to hear from applicant during his discussion.
Member Grant asked when the traffic study will be done. Mr. Galindo said during the next stage of the process which is the preliminary plat process.
Member Grant said he has a concern about the impact that this will have on the wetlands and asked for an explanation as to how the road access through the wetlands will impact it. Mr. Galindo said there will be two wildlife culverts under the road to allow water flow and animal access to both wetlands. Member Grant asked who maintains the access. Mr. Galindo said that the Home Owners Association would maintain it.
Member Porter asked who makes sure that the Home Owners Association keeps this maintained. Mr. Galindo said that someone would need to report to Code Enforcement if it is not being maintained and Code Enforcement would cite the site plan.
Member Grant said he has concerns about the traffic data being presented from South Street and not actually from South Park Avenue.
Mr. Parrish said that the City Engineer, Kwabena Ofosu reviewed this and determined that the nearest comparable road data to use is from South Street, until the actual traffic study data from South Park Avenue would be done.
Chairman Severs said he provided fifteen questions via e-mail to city staff which was then forwarded to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the applicant to review. Chairman Severs went over each of the fifteen questions. A copy of the handout is in the public record.
Chairman Severs said he was confused about the Conservation Subdivision and what regulation applies. Chairman Severs asked which is the minimum regulations being used, is it the Master Plan, PD or Conservation. Chairman Severs said it sounds like the applicant is applying for all three. Mr. Galindo and Mr. Parrish said yes.
Chairman Severs said it would be helpful to have the compromise ordinance in order to know about where trees can be planted.
Chairman Severs asked if there were specific examples of having to move the road or alignment because of the tree survey. Mr. Galindo said yes. Mr. Galindo said on page 50 of 96 of the agenda packet; the western edge of development has a tract, and staff made comments about the stormwater retention grading area that was not moved and staff had concerns about the trees in this area being negatively impacted or possibly killed. Also, between lots 60 and 64 , there is a tree close to the rear lot and they asked that the grading be contoured so that the tree will survive.
Chairman Severs asked if Low Impact Development (LID) could be used in this development. Mr. Galindo said some of the Best Management Practices that are being proposed for this project are protecting wetlands, preservation of open space, preserving tree canopy, clustering the design by minimizing the building footprint and providing trees along the roadway.
Chairman Severs asked if staff knows the flood elevation for a 500 year rain storm event. Mr. Galindo said no. Chairman Severs said this should be known.
Chairman Severs said he is concerned about if there is a blockage of the road across the wetlands, there is no way out.
Vice Chairman Richardson said he did not receive all of the questions that Chairman Severs is reading from nor did he know that these questions were from Chairman Severs. The staff then provided the complete list to the Vice Chairman.
Member Murray asked if the recreational space is weighted more towards the lagoon side. Mr. Galindo said there are several recreational tracts incorporated in this development that will directly provide recreation to the residents of the development.
Member Murray said she has concerns about sewage leaks in major storm events. Member Murray said she is also concerned about the information provided on page 31 of the agenda packet regarding flooding.
Member Grant asked if there is any concern about emergency vehicles accessing this development due to the 22 foot road size. Mr. Galindo said that the Fire Department reviewed this plan and had no comments or objections. Mr. Galindo said that this plan still has to go through a design standard process and will have to apply for waivers if needed.
Member Murray suggested parking being restricted to one side only and asked if this could be a recommended condition. Mr. Galindo said yes.
Alternate Member Riley said she has concerns regarding the road over the wetlands. Mr. Galindo said that they tried to minimize the impact to the wetlands due to the road and referred the Commission to page 31 of the agenda packet.
Alternate Member Riley asked if there were any other alternatives available rather than going through the wetlands. Alternate Member Riley asked for examples of roads going through wetlands. Chairman Severs said the Harrison Street extension to Fox Lake Road is through wetlands and Singleton Avenue from South Street to Garden Street is through wetlands.
Video start time: 01:00:57
Mr. Moia, applicant came to speak in favor of this item. Mr. Moia said this started out originally as 110 lots and now it is only 86 lots now. Mr. Moia said he did not realize how many LID elements were in the plan and he apologized for the quick no response on Chairman Sever’s questions. Mr. Moia said the roads were made narrow on purpose to reduce the amount of impervious area, to reduce the amount of development area and therefore reduce the amount of stormwater retention required to treat additional impervious surfaces. Mr. Moia said that over 50% of the property is being left in its natural state. Mr. Moia said the access to the west is private property. Mr. Moia said that they will ensure that there is no flooding or access problems on the road through the wetlands.
Member Grant asked why Mr. Moia allegedly called this development marginal. Mr. Moia said it is less than ideal because it has so many wetlands on it.
Member Porter asked how many trees are on the property. Mr. Moia said almost 100% of the property has trees. Mr. Moia said they are only removing trees in the developable uplands. Mr. Moia said about 33% of the trees will be removed.
Chairman Severs asked if there is any impact to wetlands around the cul-de-sac. Mr. Moia said there will be a small impact.
Chairman Severs asked about the mitigated wetlands and what Mr. Moia means regarding basin. Mr. Moia said the St. Johns River Water Management defines basin as a water shed basin and mitigation occurs there. Chairman Severs said this could mean the wetlands can be mitigated in Volusia County. Mr. Moia said possibly.
Chairman Severs asked if Mr. Moia would be willing to have trees planted in the dry retention and compensatory storage areas. Mr. Galindo said the City Engineer suggested trees being planted on the banks of the dry ponds and not in them. Chairman Severs said that trees were planted in the retention areas on the Titus Landing project.
Chairman Severs asked Mr. Moia to explain compensatory storage. Mr. Moia said it is no displacement of volume.
Alternate Member Riley referred to an e-mail from Bill Klein. Alternate Member Riley asked if there will be more trees saved with the new plan that is being presented tonight. Mr. Moia said yes. Mr. Moia said that the Marine Resources Council actually supports this new development now with the new design plan.
Member Parrish said she has concerns about the utilities and lift station being connected to the existing sewer lines. Member Parrish asked where the sewage will go if it fails. Mr. Moia said this development is 3ft higher than the flood zone elevation. Mr. Moia said the lift station will be maintained by the City.
Charles Tucker of 3255 Tree Top Drive Titusville, Florida came to speak against this item. Mr. Tucker sent an e-mail to city staff which was provided to the Planning and Zoning Commission members and to the applicant. Mr. Tucker read from his e-mail and gave explanation.
Member Grant asked Mr. Tucker if he was against the development entirely. Mr. Tucker said no, but it could be developed better.
Kevin Cunningham of 3115 Tree Top Drive Titusville, Florida came to speak against this item. Mr. Cunningham suggested an unpaved pedestrian walking path connecting Huntington Park to the property known as Falcon Roost.
Member Grant likes the suggestion from Mr. Cunningham about connecting the two developments. Mr. Galindo said that Falcon Roost’s design does not consider a connection and this would be something that the two developers would have to discuss.
Member Murray asked Mr. Cunningham where he would suggest the connecting walking path would be on the plan. Mr. Cunningham said between lots 59 and 60 on the layout provided.
Howard Biegler of 3135 Tree Top Drive Titusville, Florida came to speak against this item.
Janet Parker of 3108 Tree Top Drive Titusville, Florida came to speak about this item.
Member Grant asked Ms. Parker if she is against this development. Ms. Parker said she is against some of the development criteria not against the development as a whole.
Kay St. Onge 2360 Maryland Avenue Titusville, Florida came to speak about this item and read from her e-mail and gave explanation. Ms. St. Onge said she is making suggestions in order to save as many trees as possible.
Member Murray said she wants to preserve trees but cautions placing restrictions on developers when it is not lawful.
Laurilee Thompson of PO Box 307 Mims, Florida came to speak about increasing the wetland buffers.
Member Murray said she is not convinced trees should be planted in dry ponds.
Kathleen Burson came to speak about this item and stated that wetlands are part of an ecosystem. Member Grant asked Ms. Burson if she sees this development as a good development site for LID. Ms. Burson said yes.
Video start time 02:00:00
Mr. Moia had a chance to rebut. Mr. Moia said the road width of 22ft meets Brevard County standards and Palm Bay standards and the reason for reduction in the road is to meet county standards and to save as many trees as possible. Mr. Moia said that they saved enough trees on this site that mitigation is not needed. They are only impacting minimal wetlands. Mr. Moia said they are preserving 2/3 of the property. Mr. Moia said a second access is not needed or required. The Fire Department does not have any objections to the plan. Mr. Moia said that trees cannot be used for stormwater retention because they cannot take away all the water during a 24 hour period and that the St. Johns Water Management District considers them to be a stormwater impediment.
Member Murray asked for Mr. Moia’s credentials. Mr. Moia said he has been a Professional Engineer since 1996, County Engineer for 4 ½ years, business owner since 2002 and Brevard County Planning and Zoning Commission member.
Chairman Severs complimented Mr. Moia on the clarity of the engineering drawings.
Chairman Severs asked Assistant City Attorney Farrell to go over the Quasi-Judicial proceeding rules. Assistant City Attorney Farrell provided an explanation on the rules.
Chairman Severs said this is a unique property and has a lot of preservation on it and a lot of tree loss on it.
Vice Chairman Richardson said this is one of the best site development plans he has seen. It is not perfect but good.
Secretary Speidel said she has concerns about the roadway width, concerns about the data from South Street being used instead of Park Avenue traffic study data, concerns about the road crossing over wetlands and concerns about stormwater drainage and concerns about the loss of trees.
Video start time 02:32:16
Member Murray made a motion to approve REZ#2-2020 with the condition that parking on the road is restricted to a single side using odd and even approach. Vice Chairman Richardson seconded.
Roll call was as follows:
Secretary Speidel Yes
Member Porter Yes
Member Murray Yes
Member Parrish No
Member Grant No
Vice Chairman Richardson Yes
Chairman Severs Yes
Motion passed with a 5 yes, 2 no vote.
Chairman Severs asked the staff to work with the applicant to preserve more trees, add LID and ask the Fire Department to look at the safety of having one access point again.
Member Murrary and Chairman Severs clarified the concerns of the Planning and Zoning Commission to be conveyed to City Council.
- Public safety of egress/ingress.
- Desire to have landscape plan for retention areas based on Section 6.1.8 of technical manual.
- Stormwater concerns regarding stormwater retention and the condition of the existing stormwater and sewer infrastructure adjacent to the site to which the project will connect.
- Potential addition of walking path connecting between Huntington Park and Falcon Roost.
Member Parrish and Member Grant voted no due to the following reasons.
1. Fails to protect safety and welfare of public
2. Roads are inadequate in terms of egress and size
3. Stormwater systems proposed will fail to address the city’s worsening stormwater system problems
4. Traffic information inadequate to support additional traffic for this project
5. Public cost to maintain the structure passes on to the city in terms of lift station and the lines. The city does not have current resources to maintain anymore sewage problems.
6. Project unnecessarily impacts the wetlands adversarial and it could be cured by other means
Video start time 02:45:40
Member Murray made a motion that the Huntington Sketch Plat be approved with one condition; the addition of a pedestrian path between Huntington Park and Falcon Roost a provision that will be next to it based on feasibility. Member Porter seconded.
Roll call was as follows:
Member Grant No
Secretary Speidel No
Member Murray Yes
Vice Chairman Richardson Yes
Member Porter Yes
Member Parrish No
Chairman Severs Yes
Motion passed with a 4 yes, 3 no vote.
The reason for the no votes is the same reasons listed in the first motion.
Mr. Parrish said that the Planning and Zoning Commission has a full agenda for their January 20, 2021 meeting.
Mr. Parrish said that the 2040 Comp Plan will be presented to City Council at the January 26, 2021 meeting.
Mr. Parrish said that the agenda item for discussion on conveying information from staff to City Council was left off the agenda by mistake and this could be discussed tonight under reports.
Chairman Severs said that he has concerns about the recent sewage leak and the sewage system. Member Parrish said the city has to do a better job at maintaining its infrastructure.
Video start time 02:56:57
Vice Chairman Richardson said he has concerns about recommendations from the Planning and Zoning Commission not being conveyed to City Council properly. Vice Chairman Richardson said there are two examples of this; the first is concerns about the sewage lines during the 2040 Comp Plan discussion and the second was regarding the home occupation concerns. All of the concerns from the Planning and Zoning Commission regarding these two items were not conveyed to City Council. Vice Chairman Richardson said he was supposed to have a meeting with Jolynn Nelson and Peggy Busacca but the meeting did not take place due to scheduling. Vice Chairman Richardson said he called the former Chairman, Shawn Williams to ask what the relationship has been between staff and the Planning and Zoning Commission in his experience. He said Mr. Williams said that it was said that the Planning and Zoning Commission was mean to staff and they were intimidating. Vice Chairman Richardson said the frustration comes from the recommendations not being conveyed to City Council. Vice Chairman Richardson said the Planning and Zoning Commission doesn’t get any respect.
Member Parrish said the problem is that the Planning and Zoning Commission members are not elected officials running for office. She said it is easy for her to voice her opinions because she doesn’t care if anyone agrees with her or not. She said staff is a good group of people trapped between elected officials and those people who want to be a valuable resource. Member Parrish said the Planning and Zoning Commission members have to devote a lot of time researching to know what is going on. Member Parrish said she believes that staff is doing the best they can at relaying the Planning and Zoning Commission’s concerns.
Member Murray said she takes ownership in not articulating the motion clearly. Member Murray suggested that a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission be at all City Council meetings so that they can convey clearly the intent of the recommendations and concerns if needed.
Vice Chairman Richardson said he would like to have a four year term for Planning and Zoning Commission members instead of a two year term. Vice Chairman Richardson stated that the tree ordinance has been in the process for almost a year which is half of a Planning and Zoning Commission members term. Vice Chairman Richardson said maybe they should not approve any more developments until the tree ordinance and a utility plan is in place.
Chairman Severs said he has heard that there are too many lawyers on Planning and Zoning and the Planning and Zoning Commission is anti-development. Chairman Severs said he takes his position on the Planning and Zoning Commission very seriously and spends a lot of time preparing for the meetings. Chairman Severs said he respects City Council and staff. Chairman Severs said there needs to be a better working relationship with the City Manager and staff. Chairman Severs said respect has to start at the top in order to all work together. Chairman Severs said we all need to get along together.
Member Murray said there is broken communication and what steps should be taken to fix it.
Mr. Parrish suggested that the Planning and Zoning Commission members attend the public budget meetings so that they can see the budget and give their input and better understand the budget process.
Mr. Parrish said it is sometimes hard for staff to explain complex information to the Planning and Zoning Commission members and to the public so they understand.
Mr. Parrish said that if the Planning and Zoning Commission desires to have a member go to City Council, staff recommends a vote to pick one member to attend the City Council meetings to speak on behalf of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
Mr. Parrish said that staff tries to convey all of the Planning and Zoning Commission’s recommendations and concerns by providing draft minutes, the video start times, meeting with individual Council members and meet with Planning and Zoning Commission members. Mr. Parrish said the minutes have become longer than usual and minutes are not supposed to be verbatim, they are a summary. Mr. Parrish said staff is always willing to meet in person or virtually with the Planning and Zoning Commission members if needed.
Vice Chairman Richardson said staff is doing a great job but feels that everyone is under pressure. Vice Chairman Richardson hopes that the three members up for election are re-elected and get four year terms.
Chairman Severs agrees that staff is doing everything they can do with the minutes and the verbatim record is on the recording. Chairman Severs said that the Planning and Zoning Commission can discuss appointing a Planning and Zoning Commission member to attend the City Council meetings on behalf of the Commission at their meeting in February. Chairman Severs said despite staff’s efforts to convey the information it does not seem to work.
Chairman Severs complimented Mr. Galindo on the detailed staff report on today’s agenda item.
