    Case # 23-15 – The Pantry – Special Land Use and Site Plan Review for a Child Day Care Center – Located at 5308 Division Ave SE
     
    Planner Golder stated the applicant is seeking approval for the reuse of an existing .92 acre site, with a 22,500 square foot building into three separate uses: a daycare center (7,000 square feet), a food pantry (7,000 square feet) and a worship/assembly space (8,500 square feet).  She stated the two uses that require special land use is the daycare and the assembly building; the Pantry is permitted by right.
     
    Golder stated daycare will be Monday-Friday from 7:00am-6:00pm. She stated the daycare is based on 45 children. Golder stated the applicant moved the play area to the rear which is now 900 square feet in area. She stated there will be a door to the north and the west and drop off and pick up would occur in these parking spaces. She stated there are parallel parking spaces on the west side of the building that are short; the ordinance requires 25 foot spaces and they are not quite 25 feet. She stated there is angled parking spaces on the north side of the building.  She stated a new sidewalk on the north side of the building has been added. Golder stated to allow for people to pull into the parking spaces they are seeking an access easement with the property to the north.  The applicant is working on the cross access easement to allow for two way traffic that will allow them to put in parking and sidewalk. Golder stated there is also parking that has been provided on the back side of the building. She stated there is a loading area by the food pantry and the entry into the church.
     
    Golder stated the assembly building will include classrooms, meeting areas and the worship service. The classroom and meeting areas are support during the week and on the weekend will be the worship space. Golder stated the worship services will be on the off times of the daycare and the food pantry therefore that will provide the parking that is needed for this site.
     
    Golder stated regarding the pantry there will be people working and loading the food products and then people would come to shop to get their food Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 10:00am-2pm and Thursday night from 6pm-8pm.
     
    Golder stated operationally staff has to make sure the parking is in place and that the worship center, daycare and food pantry are offset from each other enough that you can get all the parking that you need.
     
    Golder stated The Pantry is on the Silveline and this is something that was talked about with Form Based Code. She stated long term when we have the Form Based Code we are looking to reduce the number of parking spaces that each use is required to have. She stated but right now the request is under our C5 zone which requires parking, therefore we have to make sure that it meets the parking standards and it does. She stated if the daycare, worship assembly and food pantry were happening at the same time 80 parking spaces would be needed under our current zoning ordinance. They have provided a total of 38 that includes 8 parking spaces that are small therefore it is more like 37 parking spaces.  The church requires 40; that is about 79 spaces that are needed if they were all happening at the same time, but they are not. There is just enough for the daycare which is required to have 15, the pantry required to have 23 we are short at 38. Golder stated there is space that is owned by the pantry that the commission can approve a deferred parking space that if there is a need for parking in the future they could park on the north side of the property. Golder stated there is always an option to look offsite to get that additional parking that they need too. The applicants are also securing additional parking with the Box Company to the east. That will satisfy any overflow from the church. This is just on off hours so it wouldn’t apply to the pantry or the daycare but for the church hours as the congregation grows they might need additional parking but they have the 38 spaces that they have on the site.
     
    Golder stated there are quite a few easements that are on the property. One of those easements is Miller Parkway; it is a private easement and that is for parking ingress and egress. She stated there is a building within the easement but our City Engineer has had some concerns because this is not exactly what the easement was for but there is a building on it. Our City Attorney said the applicant should provide a statement saying that they can do what they are planning to do on this property even though there is an easement that says it is for ingress and egress. Golder stated a statement from the applicant assuring staff that they can do what they are saying they can do on this property would be one of the recommendations. Golder stated additional easements that are needed is an access easement for two-way traffic between the buildings that is owned by the adjacent property. We want to try to start getting cross access behind the buildings on Division Avenue as all the buildings are pushed forward with the Form Based Code. Golder stated anytime we can get cross access behind the buildings we are going to try to get it. Golder stated if we continue to ask for the cross access between all the buildings eventually the public can get from the pantry to 52nd Street.
     
    Golder stated on the plan we’ve got building elevations that show what they are going to do to the front of the building. Golder stated they will add street tress on Division Avenue and some additional features.
     
    Golder stated for the condition of approval of the special land use child care center: 
     
  14. Compliance with the operations statement dated August 7, 2015 for the Pantry Child Care Center. She stated she is also looking for additional information on the child care operation; where employees will park; where people will park
     
  15. Applicant to provide a statement assuring the city of the developer’s right to provide the access, parking and ancillary uses indicated on the site plan.She stated she would also like to see the State requirements for outdoor space and classroom space.
     
  16. Applicant shall provide to the city’s satisfaction a recorded parking agreement/easement for any additional off-site parking provided. She stated this has to do with the easement going across and through the building.
     
  17. Applicant shall provide to the city’s satisfaction a public cross access easement along Miller Parkway. She stated recording parking easement or agreement for any off-site parking should be recoded as well
     
  18. Approval of the site plan by the Kentwood Fire Marshal and City Engineer.
     
  19. Staff approval of the building elevations, landscape and lighting plan. Landscape plan should make provision for bicycle parking.The location of the dumpster shall be noted on the site plan. She stated also if the Pantry can accommodate she thought it would be nice for them to have something for bicycle parking.
     
  20. The location of the deferred parking should be noted on the plan. In addition, the location of the parking easements on adjacent property should be noted on the site plan.
     
  21. Approval of the Special Land Use day care.
     
    Case # 24-15 – The Pantry Special Land Use and Site Plan Review for an Assembly Building– Located at 5308 Division Ave SE
     
    Golder stated the site plan is very similar so she’s added not only approving the deferred parking but showing it on the site plan. She stated the only other thing is approval by the Fire Marshal and the City Engineer. She stated they have had a lot of discussion about the assembly space and because of the number of people you can fit in there, the fire department has asked that it be sprinkled and the applicants are going to provide fire suppression.
     
    Golder stated the conditions for the assembly building are:
     
  22. Compliance with the operations statement dated August 7, 2015 for the Pantry Assembly building.
     
  23. Developer to provide a statement assuring the city of the developer’s right to provide the access, parking and ancillary uses indicated on the site plan.
     
  24. Developer shall provide to the city’s satisfaction a recorded parking agreement/easement for any additional off-site parking provided.The parking included in parking agreement/easement shall be noted on the site plan. Golder stated some of the site is not paved, therefore that will have to be paved in order to use it.
     
  25. Applicant shall provide to the city’s satisfaction a public cross access easement along Miller Parkway.
     
  26. The location of the deferred parking should be noted on the site plan.In addition the location of the proposed parking easements should be noted on the site plan.
     
  27. Approval of the site plan by the Kentwood Fire Marshal.

  31. VanderHoff and Young absent -
     
    Fox stated there is detail regarding the church but there isn’t much detail shown in the daycare. Merren stated they have a rough idea of what they are looking for but everything is going to be based on what code requires. Merren stated they are looking at no more than a couple of offices, there are existing restrooms and they would be adding two room for toddlers and infants and 3 for preschool age individuals. Fox asked if they had an existing daycare. Merren stated they have existing staff from the church daycare and preschool where they were previously located. Right  now there is question as to whether or not they will be able to remain there so the plan at this time is for the staff to come with them. Fox asked if in the rear of the building (the church) whether they plan doing some refinishing. Merren stated where the parking ends and the other area begins there will be a proper entrance way into the assembly area with double doors and an emergency access and an exit from the playground area. There will be a number of different elevations that are properly taken care of as far as the requirements with the fire department etc. for railing and any type of walls. Fox stated the play area is an industrial area and questioned what do they plan to do for security. Merren stated they are looking at tall fencing 10-12, feet whatever is appropriate, and then a recessed space for the playground. They are anticipating setting it up in a way that you would see in an urban setting between two buildings where the flow of traffic is regulated by where the different stations for play are located.
     
    Benoit questioned if they had plans to sprinkle the entire building. Golder stated just the assembly. Merren stated that is what the Fire Marshall has requested at this time. Benoit asked about the daycare. Merren stated it may be something that is required later by licensing but that is something they won’t know until they apply for licensing.  Benoit questioned the sanctuary being the highest use that requires 40 spaces. Golder stated our ordinance says it is based on seating or parking plan and their parking plan came up with 40. Golder stated they have parking on the Box Company where they will have access once we get the agreement we will know how many. Merren stated there are 10 possibly 12 parking spaces there.  Meren stated they have agreements written both with the box company and for the individuals to the north at the Okanauwa Karate studio but the owners haven’t been available to sign them. Benoit questioned if this becomes an issue with cars parking all over the place do we have any leverage. Golder stated if they meet our parking standards then it is just enforcement. If we didn’t get it in writing and record it and the Box Company goes away and the new owners say they can’t use it then they have to find additional parking spaces because they have to meet the standards that have been set, and in this case their parking plan says 40. Golder stated if they expand the sanctuary then they would be in violation of the special land use. Discussion ensued.
     
    Pemberton stated he likes the plan and he likes the front with trees that is a nice add. Pemberton questioned if they have the funds to take on what they need to accomplish. Merren stated they are gearing up for a very much larger capital campaign than what they originally anticipated but they have been told by everyone who is involved that it should completely reasonable. Pemberton asked if they anticipate being maxed out at the very beginning. Merren stated no they have anticipated everything and they are aware that if they had a capacity issue then they can bring in another special request in with the City to possibly add some hours on that Tuesday or during the day on Thursday that wouldn’t be any consequence as to the number of parking spaces. But if there is a change they will bring it back to the planning commission.
     
    Bridson stated she thinks aesthetically this looks really nice. She loves the green and the details of entries. Bridson stated in the past he mentioned the clients had accessibility issues and does he think they will be riding bicycles. Merren stated there is a possibility. They have a large number in the summer months of mostly single men veterans that bring a bike and they tail behind them a small carriage. He stated there will likely be a space in the front where they can put in bicycle rack in. He stated with the changes in the front and reducing to 7 parking spaces there is a room.
     
    Jones stated thanks for the greenery. She stated she appreciated the plan she is happy they are coming to the area.
     
    Kape stated he sees that there is no access from the sanctuary to the daycare so he is assuming during church service they will not be running childcare. Merren stated no they will not.  Kape stated if the congregation grew and they want to dump the childcare and expand will they have to come back to the planning commission. Golder stated that will be a Major Change if any change comes staff evaluates to see if it is major or minor. Discussion ensued.
     
     
    Holtrop stated they mentioned fencing the play area and wanted to make sure they knew there was an ordinance of 8 feet is the maximum. Holtrop stated he is in favor of deferred parking. Discussion ensued regarding parking at the Box Company.

  40. Public Hearing
     
    Case # 25-15 – FedCom Credit Union- Special Land Use and Site Plan Review for a Freestanding Financial Institution with a drive through Located at 4429 Breton Ave SE
     
    Pung stated the request is for special land use and site plan review for a financial institution with a drive-thru facility located at the northwest corner of Breton Avenue and Countywood drive (the former 7 eleven). Pung stated the site was developed in 1985 for a 7 eleven convenience store. He stated since then 7 eleven has left and the building has been vacant for over a year. Pung stated the site is accessed off of Countrywood Drive, there is no direct access on to Breton Avenue.
     
    Pung stated at the work session one of the issues identified was: the zoning ordinance would require a 50 foot building setback from any adjacent right-of-way or property line. Currently it is setback about 46.9 feet from the south property line, 46.7 from the north and with the addition of the canopy it will be 6 feet from the west property line.
     
    Pung stated the applicant is aware that they will need variances for the setback and have made application to appear in front of the Zoning Board of Appeals on August 17. Pung stated the 50 foot building setback is required for any type of drive-thru facility. Pung stated the reason for that setback is prior to 2002 when staff amended the zoning ordinance, there was no requirement for a 50 foot setback for drive-thru facilities for financial institutions. Pung stated when the zoning ordinance was updated in 2002 staff took the setback requirements for drive-thru facilities for restaurants and it was applied to all drive-thru facilities with some modifications. Pung stated staff is looking into instead of having the 50 foot setback apply to the entire building to just have it apply to the drive thru facility area. Pung stated mainly the concern was about stacking for drive-thru and setback far enough from any adjacent building. This may come forward when we have zoning ordinance amendments.
     
    Pung stated another issue was the lack of a bypass lane and as discussed at the work session; they have taken the drive-thru window and moved it to the northwest corner of the building. Pung stated this way if they come up and see a couple of cars they have the ability to come into a parking lot space and then enter the building and do their business inside the building.
     
    Pung stated another minor issue is they had their dumpster enclosure in the front yard, they will be going with a residential dumpster. But they wanted to make sure in the future if they started to generate more trash that there was someplace they can add the dumpster. Pung stated there are some options for adding a dumpster enclosure if they need one in the future
     
    Pung stated he is recommending approval of the special land use and site plan review as described in his memo.
     
    Hotrop opened the public hearing.

    Kape questioned if there will be an ATM or night deposit box and, if so, will you have to enter the building. Reimer stated no you do not, there will be a vestibule in the front center that will be accessed 24 hours a day.
     
    Jones, Bridson, Pemberton, Benoit offered no additional comments.
     
    Fox questioned whether there will be a lot of trees they will remove onsite. Reimer stated they haven’t done a landscape plan as of yet but they are going to have a very nice looking site. 2 trees that will come down is a mature tree and one that is not nice at all. Riemer stated he understands the concerns with landscaping and they will address those. Fox stated they are adding a lot of concrete and questioned where they plan to put snow. Riemer stated they have a few options including the five excess parking spaces or can be into the north east corner. Fox asked how many employees. Riemer stated typically they have 5-7 employees.
     
    Motion by Benoit, supported by Fox, to grant Conditional approval of the Special Land Use Financial Institution with a Drive-Through Facility as described in Case 25-15: FedCom Credit Union. The approval is conditioned on conditions 1-4 and basis points 1-4.

  47. Work Session
     
    Case #26-15 – 3663 Broadmoor – Special Land Use and Site Plan Review for a Major Vehicle Repair Establishment Located at 3663 Broadmoor Ave SE
     
    Case #27-15 – 3663 Broadmoor – Special Land Use and Site Plan Review for Indoor Vehicle Sales Located at 3663 Broadmoor Ave SE
     
    Golder introduced the request. She stated the request is for Major vehicle repair and Indoor automotive sales. She stated if this were outdoor vehicle sales it would not be permitted. She stated the site is on the corner of 36th Street and Broadmoor and to the north there is a residential house and then to the west a couple adjacent houses.
     
    Golder stated there are specific standards that are outlined in the ordinance for both uses.
     
    Golder stated any industrial buildings that abuts a residential district there is a setback required of 100 feet. The ordinance allows you to reduce that to as little as 50 feet as long as there are no doors except for emergency doors. She said the building setback on the west property line is 90 feet but now they are introducing doors so it has to be setback 100 feet therefore they will have to go to the zoning board of appeals for a variance on that aspect.
     
    Golder stated with respect to the vehicle repair the entire building is 12,890 square feet. She stated we have a statement of operations from the applicant but we would like to add the hours of operation, number of employees and what happens to the vehicles after they are repaired. She stated there are a number of auto repair facilities in the city and the problem that comes up is where you put them when they are waiting to be repaired and where you put them after. Golder stated on the site there is plenty of room and they could add more parking anywhere.
     
    Golder stated there is a landscaping buffer required along the east edge in the front. There are 6 parking spaces within that area and they will have to be removed. However they don’t have to come up with any additional parking spaces because the one in the vehicle repair will count toward the total number that they need.
     
    Golder stated when looking through the special land use standards for the major vehicle  repair it should be able to meet the special and use standards. The only thing that comes up is the variance that is required. The request meets the general and specific standards.
     
    Golder stated as far as building materials they are looking to put EFIS on the front that is considered a finish. Golder stated there is regulation specifying how much EFIS you can have on the front of an industrial building.
     
    Golder stated we are looking for the dumpster to be relocated to get it further away from the residential district.
     
    Dan Hula with Hula Engineering was present. He stated the site works well with what they want to do. All they need to do is change the paving. He stated the berm that is in the back and also on the north side is quite dense so it is really hard to see in or out of the site. He stated there is one hole and he’d like to put a tree on the north boundary line and if you put a tree in that hole you can’t see the place.
     
    Fox stated there was mention that the building material doesn’t meet our standards. He questioned whether they looking to change the exterior of the building.  Darehshori stated they say a mechanic shop, but this is a very high end very appealing facility. They are looking to change the look. They will repair higher end cars and when you walk inside it is going to look like a modern dealership rather than a grungy mechanic shop. He stated they plan on doing decorative concrete throughout the place. It is going to be spotless. The outside is going to have to match the inside. Darehshori stated the building is now it is solid and sturdy but they covered it up with old T1-11 therefore it takes away from the height of the building and makes it look bad. Darehshori stated they want to make the building look as good as possible. He stated stucco seems to be the modern look and it isn’t real expensive yet gives you that look and that is what they were looking to do. Darehshori stated he is surprised the City is against the stucco. Brodi, the architect displayed photos of what the building will look like.  Brodi stated they want to move the T1-11 and remove the existing windows and put new glass in and then take the glass down to the floor which would eliminate the brick and remove the T1-11 down to the existing block. Brodi stated they need something for the condensation. Brodi stated they don’t want to have a brick face because it won’t represent the fast nature of the car or the symbolic nature they are going after. Brodi stated if they could do more with the druvit that would represent the speed of a car that is what they are after. He stated they can do 100% out of brick; and decorative masonry and stone at 75%; (this is what they would be doing the tower out of)and then wood vinyl metal siding at 50%; then the stucco goes down to 25%. He stated they are getting close with the new added glass maybe that is something they could work with together at future meetings. Golder stated it only applies to the front that faces Broadmoor and the part that wraps around. Golder stated they need to submit the percent because staff didn’t know what it was then we will see how far off it is and make a determination of whether it meets it or not. Then the applicant will have 10 days to appeal to the planning commission. Discussion ensued regarding building and what other options they could do with the building.  Darehshori stated but they won’t know until they take the brick off.
     
    Benoit stated his only concern would be noise. Brodi stated there is approximately 8 feet distance from the house; the berm will provide a lot of sound proof in the summer you can’t see the house. Darehshori stated he could have some evergreens planted in there and in the winter the doors will be close and the only time the door will be open is if it is a nice day. Discussion ensued.
     
    Pemberton asked what kind of signage will they be permitted and will they take the shrubbery out front to be able to see the building better. Darehshori stated they will stake all the shrubbery out and plant so lower shrubs so you can see the building. Golder stated they are allowed a free standing sign and a wall sign. The free standing will be a monument sign. Darehshori stated they plan on putting a sign on the tower. Pemberton stated they will more than likely have more cars for sale than what will fit in the show room so where will they go. Darehshori stated they can designate an area to put them on the side they have about 4 acres but they don’t really plan on having a ton of cars for sale it is more of a serve/mechanic shop than anything else. Golder stated the cars can’t be for sale outside. The ones that are being repaired can go out there but not the ones for sale. Discussion ensued.
     
    Bridson stated she thinks the renderings looks great and likes the idea of the collections.
     
    Jones questioned if they will be focused on internet sale. Darehshori stated probably just the internet . Jones asked if they are anticipating drive by for repair. Darehshori stated drive by and word of mouth. Jones asked are they hiring new staff. He stated he has a head mechanic that has worked on all of his cars. Discussion ensued. Jones questioned how many service bays they anticipate having. Darehshori stated they will start out with 4 and then see how it goes from there.
    Kape asked the hours of operation for the repair portion. Golder stated that it something they need to add to their statement. Darehshori stated the hours will probably be 8am-5pm but he’s sure there will be days when they stay later. Kape asked if they have had any concerns from the neighbors. Darehshori stated he only met one person and he was excited about having a business there.
     
    Holtrop stated he was hoping to chat about doors on the south side. But,after visiting the site he realized they will have one door to come in from the south for the vehicles so eliminating the doors on the west will probably not happen. Holtrop asked about a dealer license. Darehshori stated they don’t have one yet, but someone will look into it.  Holtrop’s concern was once business starts doing well then we end up with outdoor vehicle sales. Golder stated then they would be in violation of the special land use. Holtrop stated there could be cars parked out front. Golder stated she expects there will be cars there for the storage for the repair because they can’t keep them all inside. But if they have a price on them or a balloon then we would know that would be a sale and that can’t happen.
