CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: October 25, 2005
Subject/Title: Introduce and waive the second reading of an ordinance
amending Planned Development 48 (PD-48) to create a new retail Subarea. The
site is located at the intersection of Lone Tree Way and Jeffrey Way.
Prepared by: Jeff Zilm, Senior Planner
Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director
The Planning Commission and staff recommend that the City Council introduce
and waive the second reading of an ordinance approving a zoning amendment to
Planned Development 48 to create a new retail Subarea. The site is located
at the intersection of Lone Tree Way and Jeffrey Way.
At its meeting of October 11, 2005, the City Council, in a 3–0 vote,
introduced and waived the first reading of Ordinance No. 814.
Fiscal impact to the City would be positive. Although the establishment of
development standards themselves does not create a fiscal impact, this
action will allow the development of a retail shopping center in a manner
which will promote a vibrant mix of retail uses thereby generating sales tax
revenue for the City.
