REPORT NARRATIVE:

The applicant is requesting approval of a Development Agreement to formalize commitments made during the Residential Development Control System (RDCS) process. The Development Agreement will allow the development of one custom single family residence on the existing lot of record. 

 

The Development Agreement will establish a development schedule for the project, including a commencement of construction deadline and include other standard City requirements. The project took part in the City's 2015 RDCS competition and was awarded one allotment for Fiscal Year 2017-2018.

 

The Development Agreement was reviewed by the Planning Commission at its August 23, 2016 meeting where the Commission held a public hearing. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the Development Agreement to the City Council.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT:                     Inform

The community was informed about this project through public notification, including site signage, newspaper notice and direct mail to property owners within 300 feet.

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTIONS:

In addition to denial of the Development Agreement, the City Council could direct staff to make changes to the Development Agreement.
