Minutes unofficial until accepted by City Commission


Larissa Philpot, city planner explained that the applicant owns the two apartment
complexes to the east of the subject property. The applicant has requested this zoning
change to construct a new multi-family apartment complex.

The surrounding properties are zoned R-4, Multi-Family Residential and are developed
as single-family homes, and duplexes and apartments converted from single-family
homes. She further stated the Comprehensive Plan’s Land Use Schedule recommends
single-family development for the property. She stated several nearby residents
appeared at the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting and spoke in opposition to
the request, citing concerns about additional traffic issues and sewer capacity for the
property. The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the request,
but the vote was not unanimous. City Planner Philpot passed out preliminary plans
provided by the developers for informational purposes.

Guy Moskowitz and Shannon Solly representing Jameson Properties appeared and
explained their plans to develop a 45-unit apartment complex targeted to college
students.

Louellen Fain – 1315 Garner Street appeared and inquired about sewer issues and
electrical issues and requested consideration of these issues by the city commission.
Ms. Fain stated Garner Street was a very narrow street with no parking on one side of
the street and was concerned about the traffic flow from the complex onto Garner Street.

Commissioner Partin asked Ms. Fain if Garner Street was designated as no parking,
would that resolve the traffic concerns, to which Ms. Fain stated it could be a
consideration.

Ms. Philpot stated that issues could be considered during the development of the
property, but could not be considered as part of the zone change.

After some discussion regarding the sewer and electrical concerns, it was stated that
these issues would be addressed during the development process as well.

City Manager Jeffers stated the zoning function was a separate issue from the
development function, and that the developer had no obligation to build according to the
preliminary plans presented, that they were presented for informational purposes only.

Mayor Van Horn clarified that the decision to be considered by the City Commission at
this meeting was the best use of the land, with the development issues being worked out
during the permitting process.

Mr. Dick Clark, a resident on Garner Street, appeared and voiced his concerns with
sewer issues in the area and requested that these sewer issues be addressed.

There being no one else present desiring to be heard, Mayor Van Horn closed the public
hearing.

Commissioner Johnson moved to approve the request for a zoning change from M,
Medical and B-1 Local Business District to R-4, Multi-Family Residential zoning for 702
and 706 East Starr Street. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Huddleston and

stated the facilities could only distribute their product on a wholesale basis either online
or in permitted package, convenience and grocery stores. She stated the proposed

utilized by other cities in Texas. Ms. Philpot further stated the zone change would allow
microbrewery facilities in Industrial zoned areas or by specific use permit in general
business districts.

Ralph Gruebel appeared in favor of the ordinance and stated he had witnessed
microbreweries in other areas and were an asset to the communities.

There being no one else desiring to speak, Mayor Van Horn closed the public hearing.

and its historical significance. He stated that it had previously been determined that the
structure was not historic and should be demolished. He stated that some citizens feel
the property should not be demolished based on a misconception that the house was a
former parsonage for the Zion Hill Church.

Rev. Larry Wade appeared representing citizens concerned with the preservation of Zion
Hill Historic District. Rev. Wade requested a delay in the demolition of the structure at
720 Bois d’ Arc Street to allow discussion between the citizens and the city commission
before a final decision is made.

Vernis Moore appeared and stated the main issue to him was the cemetery expansion
into the historic district.

Jeannette Black appeared and requested the city consider the expansion of the
cemetery to property on Swift Street where there are condemned houses.

Charlotte Stokes appeared and requested that the city base their decision on the
response from the Texas Historical Commission dated March 31, 2009.

After considerable discussion, Commissioner Johnson moved that the city continue
discussion with representatives of the Zion Hill Historic District group, with the Mayor
being the City Commission representative in the discussions. The motion was seconded
by Commissioner Huddleston and unanimously passed.

Brice Clements, interim city engineer stated that four (4) bids were received for the
project, with staff recommending the low bid of Chicago Bridge and Iron in the amount of
$1,233,000. He stated the elevated tank would be located near the intersection of Zula
and Main Streets and would provide needed storage for the city’s water supply and put
the city in compliance with TCEQ regulations. He stated the project is scheduled to
begin in May and would last for approximately 6 months.

amount of $1,233,000. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Huddleston and
unanimously passed.

Commissioner Johnson asked if plans could be made to paint a nice “welcome” on the

change order in the process. Mr. Clements was directed to receive quotes to add
signage to the tank.

Minutes unofficial until accepted by City Commission

Health and Fitness Initiative.

CITY OF NACOGDOCHES
AGENDA INFORMATION SHEET:

PROJECT: Consider a request for a variance to Section 78-100 of the sign ordinance to
place wall signs on a building frontage without street frontage at 1105 N.
University Street. (SV 2009-002)
Applicant: Adfab Signs
Property Owner: Brad Fontenot
Business: Edward Jones

MEETING DATE: May 19, 2009

DESCRIPTION: The applicant has applied for a sign variance to place 2 foot 4 inch by 14 foot (32.66
square feet) and a 1 foot 6 inch by 1 foot 6 inch (2.25 square feet) wall sign on a
side of the building that does not have street frontage.

The signs require a variance because the sign ordinance does not allow signage on
sides of the building without street frontage.

COST: None

SCHEDULE: Staff will notify the applicant as to the outcome of the City Commission meeting.

RECOMMENDED
ACTION: The Sign Ordinance states that variances should be granted where the
Ordinance would create an “undue hardship for the sign user,” and several
criteria are met.
These criteria include:
o A literal application of this chapter would not allow the property to be
used.
o The granting of the requested variance would not be materially
detrimental to the property owners in the vicinity.
o Any hardship is not in any way the result of the applicant’s own action
or the result of a self-created or personal hardship or for financial
reason alone.
o The granting of the variance would not be contrary to the general
objectives of this chapter.
This case does not meet these criteria. Denial of this variance would not
create an undue hardship for the sign owner, nor would it deny the sign owner
use of their property, as a space on the existing freestanding sign is available
to the business owner. The granting of the variance would be contrary to the
general objectives of this chapter.
