Meeting Policies and Regulations
Order of Agenda Planning Commission may alter the order of the agenda to consider variances first, followed by replats requiring a public hearing second and consent agenda last. Any contested consent item will be moved to the end of the agenda. Public Participation The public is encouraged to take an active interest in matters that come before the Planning Commission. Anyone wishing to speak before the Commission may do so. The Commission has adopted the following procedural rules on public participation: 1. Anyone wishing to speak before the Commission must sign-up on a designated form located at the entrance to the Council Chamber. If the speaker wishes to discuss a specific item on the agenda of the Commission, it should be noted on the sign-up form. If the speaker wishes to discuss any subject not otherwise on the agenda of the Commission, time will be allowed after all agenda items have been completed and “public comments” are taken. The applicant is given first opportunity to speak and is allowed two minutes for an opening presentation. The applicant is also allowed a rebuttal after all speakers have been heard; two additional minutes will be allowed. Speakers will be allowed two minutes for specially called hearing items, replats with notice, variances, and special exceptions. Speakers will be allowed 1 minute for all consent agenda items. Time limits will not apply to elected officials. No speaker is permitted to accumulate speaking time from another person. Time devoted to answering any questions from the Commission is not charged against allotted speaking time.

that an issue has been sufficiently discussed and additional speakers are repetitive. 11. The Commission reserves the right to stop speakers who are unruly or abusive. Limitations on the Authority of the Planning Commission By law, the Commission is required to approve subdivision and development plats that meet the requirements of Chapter 42 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Houston. The Commission cannot exercise discretion nor can it set conditions when granting approvals that are not specifically authorized by law. If the Commission does not act upon a Sec. I agenda item within 30 days, the item is automatically approved. The Commission’s authority on platting does not extend to land use. The Commission cannot disapprove a plat because it objects to the use of the property. All plats approved by the Commission are subject to compliance with applicable requirements, e.g., water, sewer, drainage, or other public agencies.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: To allow 339 single family lots to take access from a single point of access Chapter 42 Reference: 42-190 Point of Access. Any subdivision that includes more than 150 lots shall have at least two points of access separated from each other by a distance of at least 250 feet to a public street outside the boundaries of the subdivision. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Lakes of Avalon Village, Section 2 was platted and recorded in 2007, although never constructed. The plat provided for access to Boudreaux Road to the north and F.M. 2920 to the south through Lakes of Avalon Village, Section 1 as well as several stub streets to adjacent undeveloped properties. On December 31, 2009, the Federal Highway Administration issued a record of decision which established the alignment of Segment F-2 of the Grand Parkway. The selected alignment for this segment bisects Lakes of Avalon, Section 2. As a result, access to Boudreaux Road will be eliminated. The purpose of the proposed replat is to reconfigure the property in order to accommodate the selected alignment of the Grand Parkway. Internal circulation for Lakes of Avalon Village, Section 1 and the proposed replat of Section 2 is provided by a looped street system. Primary access to the project is provided from F.M. 2920 by Alvin A. Klein Drive which has a right-of-way width of 90 feet and features a boulevard street section from F.M. 2920 to Avalon Bend Circle. In addition, multiple stub streets have been provided to adjacent properties which will allow for additional access as these properties develop. The existing and proposed street pattern provides for adequate ingress and egress to the project as well as emergency access until such time that additional street connections can be made. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are a result of the establishment of the Grand Parkway alignment and its impact on the subject property. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The looped street system and boulevard entry to the project provide for adequate ingress and egress as well as emergency access until such time that additional street connections can be made which is consistent with the intent and general purposes of the Chapter.

(4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and The looped street system and boulevard entry to the project provide for adequate ingress and egress as well as emergency access until such time that additional street connections can be made and thus, will not be injurious to the public health, safety or general welfare. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are based on the unique physical characteristics that affect the subject property.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: To allow a block length of approximately 1,990 feet along the western plat boundary between Boudreaux Road and the future Grand Parkway Chapter 42 Reference: 42-128 Intersections of local streets. (a) Each class III plat and each general plan that shows local streets shall provide for internal circulation by meeting either of the following requirements: (1) Each local street shall intersect with a street that meets the requirements of subsection (b) at least every 1400 feet; or (2) One or more collector streets within the class III plat or general plan shall connect with another collector street or major thoroughfare at a minimum of two points. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Lakes of Avalon Village, Section 2 was originally platted and recorded in 2007, although never constructed. On December 31, 2009, the Federal Highway Administration issued a record of decision which established the alignment of Segment F-2 of the Grand Parkway. The selected alignment for this segment bisects Lakes of Avalon, Section 2. The angle at which the Grand Parkway traverses this property is significant and while the block length along the western plat boundary is approximately 1,990 feet, the intersection spacing between Boudreaux Road and the Grand Parkway along the eastern plat boundary is less than 500 feet. The two roads intersect approximately 1,000 feet to the east of this tract. Just to the west of this tract, Boudreaux Road turns to the southeast and runs parallel to the Grand Parkway with a separation of approximately 1,700 feet until the Grand Parkway turns to the west and the two roads intersect again. The geometry of these alignments creates some triangular shaped tracts, this being one of them. Due to these unique physical characteristics, the extension of an additional street would have no significant benefit to the public and thus would be impractical and contrary to sound public policy. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are based on the unique physical characteristics that affect the subject property as a result of the alignment of the Grand Parkway.

(3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The existing and proposed street system provides for adequate vehicular circulation which is consistent with the intent and general purposes of the Chapter. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and Because the existing and proposed street system provides for adequate vehicular circulation, the granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or general welfare. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are based on the unique physical characteristics that affect the subject property.

Specific requirement for which the special exception is being sought To allow 173 lots rather than 150 lots to take access from a single point of entry Chapter 42 Reference: 42-190 Points of Access. Any subdivision that includes more than 150 lots shall have at least two points of access separated from each other by a distance of at least 250 feet to a public street outside the boundaries of the subdivision. Statement of Facts: (1) Special circumstances exist that are unique to the land or the proposed subdivision or development and that are not generally applicable to all other land, subdivision for development in the city or its extraterritorial jurisdiction that justify modification of the standards that would otherwise apply; Awty Street is the sole access to this area from North Post Oak. Fourteen lots already exist on the south side of Awty. Post Oak Grove is proposed to have 159 lots with varying sizes and home types. Some of these homes are expected to be purchased by single persons and have lower traffic generation than those in a standard suburban home. The entry boulevard from Awty into Post Oak Grove Is divided to insure greater traffic capacity and less likelihood that an accident could block entry for emergency vehicles. (2) The proposed special exception will achieve a result contemplated by the standard in article III of Chapter 42 (Planning Standards); The standards were established to minimize the possibility that entry could be blocked in an emergency. Because the location and housing types will attract a number of single person households rather than families, the traffic volume at the entry is expected to be less than that of a suburban location with 150 homes. (3) The modification of the standard requested is not disproportionate to the requirement of the standard; The modification request is 15% greater than the standard. (4) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; and The intent is to insure adequate access for emergency vehicles, which should be provided since some homes will house only one person, lessening the possible incidents of access being blocked by accidents. The divided entry boulevard into the area with 159 homes will also help to insure that access will be maintained. (5) The granting of the special exception will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare. Access to these homes will be equal to or better than that to 150 homes in a subdivision of homes all oriented to families because of lower traffic volumes.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: To allow a reserve of less than 5,000 sq. ft. for a gate house in the center of a divided private street; to allow a divided paving section for a p.a.e. to be longer than 100’ at the entry. Chapter 42 Reference: - 42-192(b) Reserves. Each reserve shall meet the following requirements for minimum size, the type and width of street or shared driveway on which it may be located, and the minimum frontage, as applicable to the type of reserve: MINIMUM SIZE 5,000 Sq. Ft. - 42-231(b)(2) Private Streets - General Standards. (b) Width:(2) At the option of an applicant, for a distance of not more than 100 feet from the intersection of the private street and the right-of-way of a public street, the right-of-way width of the private street may be comprised of two paving sections of not less than 20 feet each, separated by a curbed section of not less than five feet and not more than 20 feet in width. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; There is no provision in Chapter 42 for gatehouses on private streets. Gatehouses need to be located to the left side of entering vehicles in order to allow the drivers to speak with a guard or t.o enter access codes. Few, if any, esplanades are as large as 5,000 sq. ft., nor is there any need for them to be that large. The gatehouse is needed to deter the many drivers from the nearby private school from entering the residential neighborhood seeking routes to the north or west to avoid the intersection with North Post Oak and Awty, which is congested at peak school arrival and departure times and at the time o special events. Dividing the entry for a greater distance than 100’ adds traffic capacity at the entry of a large number (154) homes as well as beautifying the entry for a greater distance. Parking will be prohibited along the boulevarded entry. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Chapter 42 has a number of provisions for reserves for uses that need limited areas but it does not have a special provision for gatehouse reserves. Having two entry roads rather than a single, divided entry road, would make it much more difficult for the future property owners to effectively monitor and control outside traffic. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained;

The general intent of the Chapter is to insure that reserves will be sufficient in size to allow development. The reserve proposed will be adequate for the purposes. The longer divided entry will enhance access. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and Providing for a gatehouse at the entry and a longer divided entry street will enhance the safety of the future residents. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The justification for the variance is the location of the subdivision and the desire to protect the future residents from outside traffic.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: Partial Replatting of a Reserve Restricted to Landscape uses and one Unrestricted Reserve into two Reserves Restricted to Landscape uses and one Unrestricted Reserve Chapter 42 Reference: 42-196 – Rules governing partial replats of certain property. (c) Property within a subdivision plat that contains lots restricted to single-family residential or residential use may be replatted to amend a plat restriction only as provided below: (1) A plat restriction limiting the use of property to residential or single-family residential use may be amended to permit the use of that property only for landscape, park, recreation, drainage, or open space uses. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; The land owner wishes to replat a portion of the existing Landscape Reserve to allow driveway access onto Hidden Park Drive. The proposed configuration of the development follows the intent of the original plat to maintain a green-space at the entrance to the subdivision. There are no restrictions that prohibit crossing landscape reserve with a driveway and there are no requirements for minimum size, minimum frontage or minimum street type for Landscape Reserves therefore the reserves proposed here are consistent with those of the preceding plat and the intents of this chapter. (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Property is being combined with an existing platted commercial reserve and the land owner wishes only to re-configure and cross the existing landscape reserve to create a more balanced site with sufficient access to promote mobility within the site. The surrounding area is predominantly residential and neighborhood commercial uses and the land owner is proposing facilities consistent with the area. The applicant is proposing Landscape Reserves that are of sufficient area and depth to maintain large landscape areas and will not significantly affect the existing landscape at the entrance to the neighborhood. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The land owner wishes to retain the Landscape Reserves along Hidden Park Drive to maintain the look of the subdivision. By keeping the two Landscape Reserves the land owner will be keeping the general purposes of this chapter intact. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare;

and Partially Replatting the one Unrestricted Reserve and one Landscape Reserve into one Unrestricted Reserve and two Landscape Reserves does not diminish the health, safety or welfare of the area. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The proposed Reserves are consistent with the surrounding communities along with the development scheme of the currently platted subdivisions and economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: Not to dedicate additional 5 feet of right-of-way on Bell Street Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-122. Right-of-way widths. The minimum right-of-way required for each of the following types of streets or public alleys shall be as follows, subject only to the street width exception areas established pursuant to section 42-123 of this Code: Local streets: (1) 50 feet if adjacent to exclusively single-family residential lots; or (2) 60 feet if adjacent to any other development Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; Bell Street is a 50 foot right-of-way. Elmore Interests, LP, - Admiral Glass owns the entire north side of Bell. The south side of Bell is 350 linear feet: 150 feet – 3 residential lots and remaining 200 linear feet are owned by Elmore Interests, LP. Admiral Glass has been in located on this site since 1950, pre-dating Chapter 42. (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Swope Addition, plat recorded 1923, created a 50-foot right of way on Bell Street and 60-foot right-of-way on Clay Street for residential lots. In 1999, the Metro Bus Operating Facility at Polk Street Subdivision was recorded denying access from Bell and Clay creating dead-end streets.

The intent and general purpose of this chapter will be preserved and maintained. Admiral Glass uses Bell Street for shipping and receiving. There are “No Parking” signs along Bell Street.
(4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and

(3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained;

Elmore Interests, LP – Admiral Glass uses the 32,500 square feet or .75 aces on the south side of Bell Street (lots 4 – 10, Block 3, Swope) for employee and company vehicle parking. The

parking area has opaque fencing. The residential lots have driveways with car ports in the rear of houses.
(5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance.

It is unlikely that Bell Street will be widened since it terminates with a dead-end.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: Provide dual building line on Bell and Clay Streets Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-150. Building line requirement. (a) An improvement that requires a building permit shall not be constructed within the building line requirement established by this article. Collector and Local Streets - Not Single-family Residential -10 feet Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Admiral Glass subdivision, an unrestricted reserve, was recorded January, 2012, but without a dual building line variance. Bell and Clay Streets are 50-foot right-of-ways. To comply with Chapter 42 right-of-way requirements, five feet on each street were dedicated for future widening. According to Harris County Appraisal District, the metal warehouse structure was originally placed on the property in 1950. Over the years, additional metal buildings have been added. The structures were on a zero lot line on Bell and Clay. With the replat for an unrestricted reserve, the buildings are encroaching into the dedicated right-of-way and into the building line setback. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Admiral Glass subdivision, an unrestricted reserve, is a replat of Lots 1 through 9 and Lots 12 through 20, Block 2, Swope Addition, a residential subdivision. The majority of the structures predate Chapter 42. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The intent and general purpose of this chapter will be preserved and maintained. The existing building line will remain for the life of the structure. An encroachment agreement with City of Houston is in process. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and Granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare since there are no proposed improvements to the existing structure. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance.

The pre-existing conditions dictate the variance.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: TO ALLOW SECTION SIXTEEN TO UTILIIZE COMPENSATING OPEN SPACE PLATTED WITH SECTION FIFTEEN. Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-184. Reduction in lot size; compensating open space. Lot sizes less than the otherwise applicable minimum prescribed in sections 42-182 and 42-183 of this Code are permitted in subdivisions where compensating open space is provided within the boundaries of the subdivision plat in accordance with the following schedule and in conformance with the design standards of section 42-185 of this Code. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Brunswick Meadows, Section Fifteen and Sixteen are adjacent sections. The total number of lots between the two sections is 93 lots, which most of the lots require compensating open space. Section Fifteen includes a 0.77 acre reserve restricted to compensating open space. The required amount of compensating open space required by Chapter 42 for Section Fifteen is 0.11 acres and for Section Sixteen the required amount of compensating open space is 0.12 acres for a total of 0.23 acres required. The 0.77 acres provided in Section Fifteen exceeds the amount required by both sections. The compensating open space is accessible through the pedestrian trail system along Brunswick Meadows Lane or through the cul-de-sac street within Section Sixteen. The compensating open space reserve will be owned, managed and maintained by the Brunswick Meadows Homeowners Association and shall by restricted for use of the lot owners of the subdivision and shall be accessible to all of the owners within the subdivision. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The compensating open space reserve provided exceeds the amount of space required for Sections Fifteen and Sixteen. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The two sections are adjacent and have adequate access to the restricted reserve and the amount being provided exceeds the amount required. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare;

and The granting of the variance to allow the compensating open space in Section Fifteen to meet the requirement for both sections is not injurious to the public health safety or welfare of the residents of this community. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The provision of exceeding the amount of compensating open space being required supports the requested variance. The ability to provide a larger park area is a benefit to the community.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: TO REDUCE THE BUILDING LINE ALONG SCOTT STREET TO FOLLOW THE 14’UE ALONG THE REAR OF THE LOTS. Chapter 42 Reference: 150 Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Brunswick Meadows is located in southern Harris County, north of Beltway 8 South, and west of Scott Street. The development is designed with large open green space areas centrally located to the neighborhood and offers several different housing products. The primary access to Brunswick Meadows is on Scott Street, which is a designated City of Houston major thoroughfare that requires a 100’ right-of-way. Chapter 42 requires a 25’ setback along major thoroughfares. We dedicated the land and constructed the portion of Scott Street from its intersection with Beltway, north to the primary entrance. This also allowed access to the neighborhood to the east, called Brunswick Lakes. The remaining portion of Scott Street located between the two neighborhoods, is to be dedicated and constructed by the developer of Brunswick Lakes. Adjacent to Section Sixteen, Scott Street currently has a right-of-way of approximately 85’, and so 15’ is required for Scott Street to be sufficient width. Typically, dedication to widening requires property owners on each side of the right-of-way to each dedicate half of the necessary dedication. In this case, however, Harris County is requiring that all necessary dedication come from the west side, which affects the design of Brunswick Meadows, which the general plan was approved in 2004. The County is requiring the full dedication due to the existence of an established neighborhood development, Holloway Heights to the north. Requiring the dedication from one owner will avoid the costly condemnation proceedings that would have to occur if dedication is required from the east side of Scott Street. The condemnation would affect a handful of corner lot owners in Holloway Heights. The subject section, along with the section to the south, Section Fifteen, have had previous preliminary plat approvals in the Spring 2010 when approximately 7.5’ of dedication for Scott Street was provided. Now, the County is requiring additional dedication to equal the needed 15’. This increase of dedication to Scott Street shifts the building line of 25’ further into the rear of the proposed lots. In order to maintain the buildable area within the lots that rear to Scott Street and to provide for a landscape reserve, we are requesting that the building line and the 14’ UE combine. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant;

Avoiding possible condemnation of existing development north the subject tract is the reason for the variance. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; Dedication to the public right-of-way will be provided along with a landscape reserve to provide for some buffer along the thoroughfare maintains the intent and general purposes of Chapter 42. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and The granting of the variance for a reduced building line along the rear of the lots will not be injurious to the public. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. Maintaining the landscape reserve along Scott Street and avoiding the existing neighborhood to the north are the justifications for the variance.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: A dual building setback to allow the existing structure to remain at 0’ rather than 10’ on Louisiana and to allow the enclosure of a previously roofed area to be extended with the same 0’ setback. Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-150. Building line requirement. (c) The following chart is a summary of certain of the building line regulations of this division and is intended for illustrative purposes only. In case of any conflict between the chart and the text of this division, the text shall control. Collector and Local Streets Not Single-family Residential Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; This building was originally constructed for the Knights of Columbus in the 1960’s, prior to the enactment of Chapter 42 in 1982 establishing building setbacks. Along Louisiana, the entire building is and was within the 10’ setback and much of it is on the property line. An ongoing remodeling, permitted several months ago and nearing completion for a restaurant, involves a new façade and enclosing an area that was previously roofed but not enclosed with a curved wall that touches the property line at the outmost point of the curb. Buildings close to the street are consistent with the adopted plan for the Midtown TIRZ in order to encourage transit-oriented pedestrian-friendly environment. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The building was constructed prior to the enactment of the ordinance establishing the 10’ setback (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; Among the purposes of Chapter 42 is safety, the establishment of building setbacks appropriate to an area, recognizing the differences in design framework of various areas and the encouragement of pedestrian use of sidewalks. It was not the intent to require existing buildings to be demolished or to make them comply with the setback requirements when being remodeled. Both the existing structure and the minor additional enclosure are consistent with the adopted Pan for Midtown. Urban 10 feet Suburban 10 feet

(4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and The reduced building setback promotes an urban environment, which encourages pedestrian traffic and transit usage, which, in turn, improves public health by contributing to a reduction in air pollution. Both are beneficial to public health, (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The justification for the variance is the existing physical circumstances.

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: Reduction in lot size; Compensating Open Space variance to allow some of the balance of Compensating Open Space from (recorded) Lakecrest Village Section One to fulfill the C.O.S. requirement for Lakecrest Village Sec 3 Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-184. Reduction in lot size; compensating open space. Lot sizes less than the otherwise applicable minimum prescribed in sections 42-182 and 42-183 of this Code are permitted in subdivisions where compensating open space is provided within the boundaries of the subdivision plat in accordance with the following schedule and in conformance with the design standards of section 42-185 of this Code. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this Chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the developer of the reasonable use of the land. Section 42-184 requires that the compensating open space necessary for a section with under-sized lots, be provided within the boundaries of the individual section(s) of subdivisions. Section lines of a subdivision are typically based on engineering constraints, developer's financial plans and other requirements of that type which are not necessarily the best and most efficient way to divide, distribute and position the C.O.S. Lakecrest Village Sec 1 has two dedicated reserves for C.O.S., totalling about 58081 sq. ft.; only 2600 square feet of that was used by Sec 1. Sec 2 used 300 square feet. That yields a remainder of 55,181 square feet. We request that a portion of the balance of C.O.S. provided in Lakecrest Village Sec 1 be utilitzed for this section (LCV3), which only needs 400 square feet. (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The circumstances supporting this variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant/developer. The applicant has already provided a generous amount of compensating open space, much greater than is required, for the overall development. Therefore we wish to be allowed to use a portion of the extra C.O.S. in recorded Section 1 as open space for Section 3. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The intent and general purpose of Chapter 42 will not be adversely affected by allowing this variance since the developer has already provided, by recorded plat, all the Compensating Open Space required for the entire development of LCV. We request that the extra C.O.S. provided in Reserves "A" and "D"

from Section 1 be used to fulfill the C.O.S. requirements for Section 3. The developer has met all the requirements of Chapter 42-185, as the C.O.S. areas are flat, dry, the minimum square footage is surpassed, the C.O.S. is restricted to home owners within the LCV development, it is managed by the homeowner's association and the location is accessible to all residents of the subdivision. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and Granting this variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety and welfare of the public since the General Plan of Lakecrest Village provides for compensating open space far greater than is required for the development and it is easily accessible for all residents to use and enjoy. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. Economic hardship is definitely not a justification for this variance request. The reason for the variance request is the developer's desire to provide and focus sizeable Compensating Open Space in an area of the develoment that enhances the entryway and is easily assessible for all residents to use.

47 and 81

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: The owner does not wish to dedicate a local street connecting Hillendahl Blvd and Pech Rd Chapter 42 Reference: Section 42-128(a)(1) Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; An existing school campus with classroom buildings and recess facilities is currently located on the subject tract. This school is in operation and dedicating a street is impossible because the alignment of the proposed street will likely coincide with existing improvements. SBISD will be forced to demolish existing buildings in order to dedicate the ROW. (1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Dedicating a street contrary to sound public policy because the street will bisect the subject tract and divide the school campus which will create a potential danger for the elementary students. The students will likely be forced to cross the street to access classroom buildings, cafeterias, or recess facilities, and the dedication of the street will be open to the public which could potentially be utilized by sexual predators. (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; SBISD has operated a school on this site for many years and they wish to plat the tract to create one reserve. The safety of the elementary school children is the primary reason for granting the variance. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The configuration of the subject tract and the adjoining tracts to the north have not changed for many years. There presently exists ample traffic flow in both north-south and east-west directions by utilizing Westview Drive and Waterbury Drive and Hillendahl Blvd and Pech Rd. The block face along Hillendahl Blvd is approximately 1475 feet and the block face along Pech Rd is approximately 1690 feet. The potential safety risk does not warrant strict adherence to this section for block face excesses of 75 feet and 290 feet. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and The current configuration of the existing streets has not changed in many years and granting this variance will not change the configuration. Police , fire, and residents have multiple routes to access the subject and adjoining tracts. NOT GRANTING this variance will be injurious to the public’s health, safety, and welfare because there will be a 60’ ROW street dedicated through the center of an elementary school. This street will create safety concerns because the school children will have to cross it at some point and

this creates an additional area for sexual predators to occupy. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The primary reason for granting this variance is for the safety of the school children and dedicating ROW will divide the tract. The divided tract makes every aspect of the school’s operation more difficult due to the campus being spread apart and separated by a street.

Variance Request Information Form
Plat Name: Woodlands Village of Creekside Park Sec 40 Company Name: LJA Engineering & Surveying (Woodlands Office) Date 04/13/2012 Submitted:
47 and 81

Specific variance is being sought and extent of variance: To allow ¬¬0’ front building lines for private alley served lots Chapter 42 Reference: Sec. 42-158. Local streets--Suburban. (a) The building line requirement for property in a suburban area restricted to single-family residential use shall be 20 feet along the front of a lot and ten feet along the back and side of a lot adjacent to a local street, unless otherwise authorized by this article. (b) A front building line requirement of ten feet for property otherwise subject to the requirements of subsection (a), and a building line requirement of ten feet on both sides of a corner lot adjacent to a street, are authorized for a subdivision where the face of the plat contains a typical lot layout and notes that restrict the placement of any garage or carport facing the street to no closer to the property line adjacent to the street than 20 feet. (c) When the plat contains a typical lot layout and notes that restrict vehicular access to an approved public alley, then no front building setback line shall be required, except for corner lots as provided herein. Statement of Facts: (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; The subject property is located in The Woodlands Township in Harris County, within the ETJ of the City of Houston. This property is being planned as a “new urban neighborhood” in the Village of Creekside Park, The Woodlands, a master planned community. This neighborhood is adjacent to the Village Center of Creekside Park, and is designed to connect the homes to the Village Center with streets and sidewalks within a 5 minute walk. One of the primary goals of this neighborhood is to provide an “urban”, pedestrian-friendly environment. As such, The Woodlands is creating a pedestrian-friendly setting through enhanced sidewalks, street trees and landscape treatments throughout the neighborhood. An important part of creating the pedestrian-friendly environment is to eliminate as many driveways as possible from the primary pedestrian routes. To achieve this goal, the development is proposing many homes that incorporated an internal alley system into the proposed design to allow vehicular access to the back of the lots. By providing the alleys and vehicular access to the rear of the lots, pedestrian interaction with vehicular traffic will be minimized. In an effort to further enhance the pedestrian feel of the development and to create the streetscape/scene of authentic period architecture, we are requesting the front building line of the alley served lots along Kendrick Pines Blvd (formerly proposed as Shelter Pines Blvd – the north/south boulevard) be reduced to 0-feet. Reducing the building line will create a tighter, more “urban” pattern that responds to the streetscape of the development and to that of the Village Center of Creekside Park.

(1b) Strict application would make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; (2) The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; The overall development plan for the subject property is designed to enhance the pedestrian district by creating an inviting and safe place to walk. Providing a reduced building line will move homes closer to the enhanced pedestrian walks. The closer proximity of the homes to the pedestrian ways combined with walkways with enhanced landscaping and street trees creates a more attractive and safer walking environment. While this development plan is self imposed, it is designed to create a safer and more inviting place to live and walk. (3) The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The aforementioned design elements of reducing building lines and providing alleys and enhanced streetscapes are in keeping with widely accepted planning standards when trying to create more urban pedestrian friendly environments. Consequently, the City of Houston’s Chapter 42 ordinance has accepted and incorporated certain aspects of these concepts. Section 42-158 (c) allows a 0-foot front building line when access is provided via a public alley. Our proposal meets this requirement with the exception that the alleys proposed herein are private alleys rather than public alleys. Harris County will not allow public alleys, so we are proposing to use private alleys that will be maintained by the The Woodlands Township. Thus, this proposal is in keeping with the intent and general purposes of Chapter 42. (4) The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; and Granting of the herein requested variance will not be injurious to the public health or safety. By providing reduced building lines, enhanced sidewalks and street landscaping, a safer, more appealing pedestrian environment will be created. Thus, the public safety and welfare will be enhanced by providing the herein requested variance. Note: This variance has been requested and approved for other sections (32, 33, 35, 36, 38, and 39) within this “new urban neighborhood” in Creekside Park. (5) Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The hardship is due to different rules in Chapter 42 and Harris County regulations regarding public vs. private alleys.

APPLICANT’S STATEMENT OF FACTS
SUMMARY OF VARIANCE CONDITIONS (BE AS COMPLETE AS POSSIBLE): The variance being sought by this application seeks approval for the property owner to extend the non-structural entry façade that covers the entry doorway an additional 4’ beyond the current building line. The existing building line setback is 10’ and the applicant is requesting a variance of that setback affecting the Northern building line. The property is fully contained within a gated environment and the extension of the façade does not interfere with any city right of way, walkway or vegetation.

The applicant must clearly identify how the requested variance meets the criteria in either (1a) or (1b) and ALL items (2) through (5). The information provided will be used to evaluate the merits of the request. An electronic copy of any supporting documentation reference within the “Applicant’s Statement of Facts” should be emailed to the Planning Department at planning.variances@cityofhouston.net. (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land; The structure experiences water penetration at the front entry due to the inadequacy of coverage above the entry doorway. Moisture from driving rain enters the structure damaging both the exterior doorway components and the interior entryway flooring and walls. The applicant has attempted other temporary solutions but the problem persists and is now causing substantial damage.

(1b)

Strict application of the requirements of this chapter would make a project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy;

(2)

The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Applicant has not imposed nor created any situation which could be in any way construed as factors that support the granting of the variance. This structure was built in 2001 in accordance will all applicable building requirements, complying with required setback lines and building codes. However, the entry fails to provide adequate protection against the elements and allows the building to be subject to water penetration due to insufficient coverage. Other corrective options have been employed including awnings but none have provided a sufficient and permanent solution to the ongoing problem.

(3)

The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The general purpose of this variance will allow the construction of a non- structural façade that will provide additional shelter for the entry to keep it from experiencing continued damage due to water exposure. The proposed changes to the entry façade have been approved by the Houston Archaeological and Historical Commission and a Certificate of Appropriateness has been granted.

(4)

The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare;

The granting of this variance will in no way be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare of the public as the variance being sought only affect the property inside the gated lot of the property owner. The proposed improvements are fully contained within the gates of the property and do not affect the city right of way, public sidewalks or public areas.

(5)

Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The economic hardship of the variance sought is not the sole justification in that the property affected will continue to suffer damage which will be abated by the variance and the building exterior will be enhanced which will benefit the neighborhood.

Meeting Date: 04/26/2012

APPLICANT’S STATEMENT OF FACTS
SUMMARY OF VARIANCE CONDITIONS (BE AS COMPLETE AS POSSIBLE): The property was purchased by SRE Texas 9, LLC, a subsidiary of Sonic Automotive Inc. (“Sonic”) to locate a seven (7) story Audi dealership (the “Dealership”). Once constructed, the Dealership will be Audi’s largest Flagship Dealership in the United States. At the time of purchase, Sonic relied upon a 2006 recorded plat for this property designating a ten foot (10’) setback along the western edge of the property closest to Farnham/Greenbriar Streets (collectively “Greenbriar”). Based on the existing 2006 plat, Sonic designed the proposed Dealership which, at the closest point, will be thirty-one feet (31’) from Greenbriar curb. The City of Houston rejected Sonic’s building permit application because, by ordinance. Greenbriar is designated a major thoroughfare and a twenty-five feet (25’) setback applies pursuant to Section 42-152 of City Ordinances. This request seeks a variance from the twenty-five feet (25’) setback to ten feet (10’), as shown on the 2006 plat. The applicant must clearly identify how the requested variance meets the criteria in either (1a) or (1b) and ALL items (2) through (5). The information provided will be used to evaluate the merits of the request. An electronic copy of any supporting documentation reference within the “Applicant’s Statement of Facts” should be emailed to the Planning Department at planning.variances@cityofhouston.net. (1a) The imposition of the terms, rules, conditions, policies and standards of this chapter would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land;

(1b)

Strict application of the requirements of this chapter would make a project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy; Traditional automotive dealerships have a large footprint – several buildings for sales, service and parts, surrounded by 4-8 acres of parked vehicles. Sonic has designed a vertical dealership which makes better use of space and is more functional in an urban setting. This design has a much smaller footprint, with active storefront/showroom designs at a pedestrian level, internal vehicle parking (on several floors) and substantial green space. The smaller footprint and urbanistic design of the Dealership are consistent with the City of Houston’s public policies. Strict imposition of a twenty-five foot (25’) set-back line for this property would materially impact Sonic’s ability to construct this innovative Dealership on this property.

(2)

The circumstances supporting the granting of the variance are not the result of a hardship created or imposed by the applicant; Applicant has not imposed nor created any situation which could be in any way construed as factors that support the granting of the variance. The applicant inherited the 2006 plat. However, the need to construct automotive dealerships in more dense urban environments requires a more responsible construction model focused on pedestrian access, smaller footprints and enhanced esthetics. Such factors drove the design of the Dealership and such design requires a set-back variance at this location.

(3)

The intent and general purposes of this chapter will be preserved and maintained; The intent and purpose of Chapter 42 will be preserved and maintained because the Dealership will have a ten foot (10’) building set back.

Due to the proximity of this Project to the planned transit station platform rail stop at the intersection of Shepherd and Richmond (925’), this portion of Greenbriar will likely convert to a Type “A” Street causing an elimination of the set-back requirements along such street. It is also important to point out that Greenbriar at this location is a seventy foot (70’) right-of-way. Section 42-155 the City of Houston Ordinances provides for a five foot (5’) set-back for parcels in an urban area with a planned right-of-way of less than 80 feet if an applicant demonstrates that: (i) it is a retail commercial center; (ii) a five foot (5’) sidewalk is provided; (iii) off street parking is provided; and (iv) certain restrictions on driveways that are inapplicable to this project. The Dealership meets all of these requirements, except for a technical issue associated with the definition of “retail commercial center”. While the Dealership is certainly a retail commercial center under the commonly understood meaning of this term, Chapter 42 requires a “group” of commercial establishments in order to meet the legal definition. While the Dealership will house multiple retail services, such services will be predominantly owned by Sonic. Nonetheless it is clear that this Application meets the general intent and purpose of Section 42-155 and would otherwise automatically qualify for a five foot (5’) set-back under such Section, but for the requirement of multiple businesses.

(4)

The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the public health, safety or welfare; Granting this variance will not affect visibility along Greenbriar for vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Once constructed, the Dealership will be thirty-one feet (31’) from the existing curb for Greenbriar. Also, many nearby buildings are located approximately ten feet (10’) from the Greenbriar right of way, so this variance for the Dealership will be consistent and harmonious with neighboring properties on Greenbriar. Additionally, the Dealership is designed to have no access drive on Greenbriar so a set-back of ten feet (10’) will not be complicated by vehicular access from an access drive. This Dealership’s efficient use of vertical space uses less land than typical automotive dealerships. Its proposed proximate location to Greenbriar and use of green space is consistent with the City of Houston’s policy of promoting walkability and pedestrian friendly environments. Thus approval of this Variance will be consistent with sound public policy and conducive to health, safety and public welfare.

(5)

Economic hardship is not the sole justification of the variance. The requested variance will satisfy the intent of Chapter 42, including Section 42-155 (as discussed above). Because this property borders Highway 59, the current shape and configuration of the support columns and ramp configuration for the Greenbriar/Highway 59 underpass significantly restrict the City’s ability to widen Greenbriar. Additionally, south of Highway 59 the width of Greenbriar is much narrower and is bordered by high end residences. Granting this variance for this Dealership would not cause any adverse impact on the City’s ability to widen Greenbriar in the future because that ability is significantly restricted by the factors mentioned above. To summarize, approving this variance for the Dealership is consistent with the City of Houston’s evolving policies of promoting walkable, pedestrian friendly environments and projects with urbanistic building designs on smaller footprints. Permitting the Dealership to have a ten foot (10’) set-back is harmonious with neighboring buildings along Greenbriar and will not affect the City’s ability to widen Greenbriar in the future.
