PUBLIC HEARING(S)

AB18641 1. A PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER TEXT AMENDMENTS TO THE SOUTH HILL NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN

Brian Smart, Planner introduced the South Hill Neighborhood Plan Amendment at the request of the South Hill Neighborhood Association. The proposed change is to add a new paragraph to the neighborhood character section of the plan, which would provide policy direction for neighborhood residents about trees and view preservation and does not have any regulatory language and does not require an amendment to the Development Code. The staff and Planning Commission recommend approval.

Council President Buchanan opened the public hearing.

Kathy Cameron, President South Hill Neighborhood Association and Christy Austin, Chair of the Trees & Views Committee provided a Power Point presentation. Ms. Cameron reviewed the proposed changes and explained that this is a non-regulatory policy amendment. Ms. Austin explained how the amendment meets the Comprehensive Plan requirements and described the overwhelming support of the neighborhood. The Association formed a Trees & Views Sub-Committee and worked for 18 months to formulate the amendment.

There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed.

BORNEMANN / KNUTSON moved to direct staff to prepare an ordinance approving the amendments to the South Hill Neighborhood Plan to be included in the Comprehensive Plan amendments to be considered by City Council at year end. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.



AB18642 2. A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT, REZONE AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT FOR APPROXIMATELY 35 ACRES IN AREA 17 OF THE GUIDE MERIDIAN/CORDATA NEIGHBORHOOD

Kathy Bell, Project Manager for the Comprehensive Plan amendment, rezone and Development Agreement in the Guide Meridian / Cordata Neighborhood presented the staff report.

Ms. Bell reviewed the history of the area and the proposal. The current zoning designations are Area 27: predominately residential and Whatcom Community College: institutional. The applicant is proposing that the remaining (approximately) 35 acres of industrial land be amended to be a mixed use of residential, industrial and commercial. The 2005 Comprehensive Plan identified an urban village in the northern portion of the Cordata Area. This area already has a Master Plan, Design Guidelines and Protective Covenants.

Ms Bell noted that it is not known how much of the site can actually be used as it is heavily constrained by wetlands. She noted that the Planning Commission and staff recommend approval and requested that council direct staff to prepare an ordinance.

Council President Buchanan opened the public hearing.

Blair Murray, Tin Rock Development reviewed his history and knowledge of the area and noted that it has become apparent that the property never had a chance of being developed in the way that it was envisioned in the original Master Plan. Significant changes have occurred that made the site undesirable as a location for industrial warehousing and distribution in the Foreign Trade sector. Cordata has distinct neighborhoods but the area is missing a unifying element where the entire community can come together. His rezone request would provide the opportunity for such a civic and community center - an urban center that is unique to Cordata and fulfills the needs of its’ residents and community.

He added that previous Master Plan amendments have changed the character of the Cordata: removal of the Foreign Trade Zone by the Federal Government earlier this year; changes in roadway infrastructure - truck to auto; anticipated demand for industrial/manufacturing did not materialize and there have been significant revisions to wetland regulations.

Blair Howe, GVA Kidder Mathews. conducted an exhaustive market analysis for Tin Rock Development. They looked at the long term supply and demand for real estate and at the physical characteristics of the site. They found that the area is not well suited for general industrial development purposes but there is a modest demand in the flex segment of that marketplace. The site is well positioned for a mix of uses including medical office, apartments, for-sale housing and hospitality.

Vikki Jackson, Northwest Ecological Services has been evaluating the wetlands and critical areas of this site and addressing suitable choices in terms of what is appropriate on-site and off-site. Most of the project wetlands on this site are lower functional value. There are two off-site wetlands to the east of the project that are Category 1 and have been addressed in the Master Plan with additional buffering. It has been determined that there is nowhere on-site to compensate for all wetland fill and impact. The city Parks Department has purchased property a bit northwest of the site and that is a proposed off-site mitigation area that will integrate a city park with mitigation areas.

Dave Christensen, Architect, presented a “non-project” or conceptual drawing of what might be placed in this area. He went through a sketching process with the neighborhood to get a sense of what makes sense in the area and how it would fit with the environment, transportation, social, economic and market. The result of this process is an illustrative plan to depict some key elements that came out of the meetings with the community. The drawing included proposed buffers around major wetland areas; pedestrian trail connectivity through the property in all directions; vehicular access; a neighborhood center urban village near the Sea Mar intersection with an open space similar to Fairhaven Village Green and small commercial units with parking internalized. He described mixed use buildings - some commercial with live/work above; multi-family; townhouses and small cottage homes throughout the property. Lastly, stormwater detention areas would be a series of small stormwater projects. The concept meets the spirit of flexible development framework while accommodating changes and social, demographic market trends in the long term.

Mr. Howe reviewed economic impacts of the conceptual plan and anticipates the following:
          During construction of the project: an excess of $78 million in total output with earnings of roughly $25 million of that total; and generating 623 jobs.

          After completion of the project: business operations on an annual basis would be close to $30 million with earnings of approximately $8.6 million of that total; and creating 239 jobs.
Mr. Murray concluded that this rezone will provide a community focus and civic core for Cordata; the remaining parcels could take more than 50 years for full build-out; the site could provide real opportunities for jobs and residential infill; infrastructure that has been in place for more than 20 years could be used to its full capacity to support the infill goals of Bellingham and Whatcom County and reduce the pressure on the rural areas; and many regional and local trail connections could be accommodated in this proposal, which would provide links between neighborhoods and communities.

Beverly Jacobs, 4567 El Dorado Way, Co-President, Guide Meridian / Cordata Neighborhood Association discussed parking and transportation issues for the thousands of cars that, with this project, would be involved on Cordata Parkway. She said a roundabout would be necessary at Stuart and Cordata and also at Seymour where it enters into Tin Rock Development off Cordata along with an east/west connector in order for the proposal to function. There will be a tremendous impact on Cordata Parkway and she asked the city to plan the transportation carefully.

Adrienne Lederer, 4244 Wintergreen Circle also discussed the current and potential transportation issues. She supports the opportunity for rezone and the concept plan but is concerned about the increased traffic issues. She asked that the Public Works transportation staff, work with the outside agencies and the developer to work out a good and wonderful development.

Julianna Guy, 4559 El Dorado Way supports the concept plan but recalled that in previous developments the neighborhood has not been paid attention to. She charged council with the responsibility, in supporting this amendment, to make sure that the amenities, traffic, parks and trails, and small stormwater projects showcase the Guide Meridian / Cordata area as they should have done from the beginning.

Ralph Wenning, 5010 Festival Boulevard, Board Member of the Cordata Business Park Association and the Guide Meridian / Cordata Neighborhood Association. He is primarily concerned about density and the Development Agreement. He noted several different instances where the proposed density is different and said there seems to be floating target of density. Although the Association has given a qualified endorsement, they are very concerned about the changing number of units plus the Cordata Business Park Planned Unit Development (PUD) density limitations as described in the PUD Amendment #2. At the Planning Commission the Association was informed that the excess number of units from the north could be transferred to the south, which he felt, could be debatable. The major objection is not counting residential units that are in the mixed use work/residential areas because that would affect all of the impact fees and the impact on water & sewer. In effect, it would allow the builder to exceed the density ceiling that is part of the Association’s protective covenants. The previous Master Plan has problems and the Association is a bit skeptical when it comes to commitments unless they’re in the Development Agreement and it says it must be done. If there is a trail, then the city must have ownership, he said and explained that they have seen a trail lost that was built by another developer and then when the people moved in and didn’t like it - it was removed from public access. We still offer a qualified endorsement but would like to see the details mentioned in their letter pinned down in the Development Agreement so that what is promised is actually given.

WEISS / KNUTSON moved to postpone consideration to November 23, 2009.
After discussion deadlines and conditions with regard to amendments to the Comprehensive Plan KNUTSON withdrew his second. Motion died for lack of second.

BJORNSON / SNAPP moved to direct staff to prepare an ordinance approving the Comprehensive Plan amendment and rezone to be included in the Comprehensive Plan amendments considered by the City Council at year end. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.

BARBARA RYAN / BORNEMANN moved to direct staff to consider, as a condition of the rezone, 10% of the units being set aside for permanently affordable housing and for council to consider this option as an amendment, during the worksession on November 23rd.

Lengthy discussions followed between Council and staff. The council would like to discuss the following issues in greater detail:
    affordable housing options
    trail corridors and parks
    number of units - density and types of housing
    stormwater detention ponds

In reference to these issues, Ms. Bell and Mr. Stewart explained that without an actual plan submitted it is hard to be specific. Once a specific plan is presented then the actual developable acres can be taken into consideration and only then will staff will be able to deal with each issue specifically.

MOTION CARRIED 7-0.

BREAK
Council President Buchanan called the meeting back to order at 9:21 p.m.
