Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
There have been no previous Council decisions on this property in relation to this subdivision.
Options and Alternatives:
  1. Approve the Preliminary Plat as recommended by staff and the Planning & Zoning Commission.
  2. Approve the Preliminary Plat with conditions.
  3. Deny the Preliminary Plat based on non-compliance with the Zoning Code, the Subdivision Code, and/or the Engineering Design Standards and Specifications for New Infrastructure.
The project consists of 13 two-story detached units in both the Medium Density Residential (MR) and High Density Residential (HR) Zones. City Staff approved the Site Plan for the development (PZ-21-00236-02) on February 11, 2022. Civil plans for the development of the site are currently in review. City approvals were based on conformance with all relevant City Development Standards, as discussed in Section C, below.
The project is being developed according to the standards for the Medium Density Residential (MR) and High Density Residential (HR) Zones.
Key Considerations:
This application is for a condominium plat, which takes a multi-unit complex, such as the subject property, and creates the potential for individually owned units. The Preliminary Plat delineates all the elements affiliated with the individual units. In this case, the units are defined as the airspace around each unit. The vertical boundaries start at the finish floor elevation (FFE) of each unit and extend to the top of the roof of that unit. The horizontal boundaries start outside the walls of each unit. 
The remainder of the site outside the units is being platted as common area and open space.  Parking spaces will be assigned to each unit through the CC&Rs.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
The community benefits of this project are encapsulated in the PBB Key Community Priorities/Objectives and the Regional Plan Goals and Policies review.
Community Involvement:
Inform.  The existing zoning of the subject property allows for the proposed subdivision.  No public hearings or public outreach are required by either the Zoning Code or the Subdivision Code as part of the Preliminary Plat review process.
