8. ZONING: (HPZ 01-34) APPEAL OF THE PLANNING DIRECTOR'S DECISION - KEMMERLY COMPANIES, 824 N. SECOND AVENUE (CONTINUED FROM MEETING OF MARCH 25, 2002)

    (a) Report from City Manager APRIL8-02-202 WVI

    ADDED (b) Applicant: Kemmerly Companies

    Appellants: West University Neighborhood Association, Inc.,
    appeal filed January 24, 2002.

    West University Historic Zone Advisory Board,
    appeal filed January 30, 2002.

    Appeal of the Planning Director's decision of January 17, 2002, granting conditional approval to proceed with frame and stucco construction, finding that there is no criterion in the City of Tucson Land Use Code or Development Standards which specifies appropriate building materials, except as they relate to details (e.g. doors and windows) or surface appearance. In this case, the surface material proposed is sand finished stucco, a finish found throughout the project's development zone.

    The appellants contend that the building materials should be masonry and stucco and should reflect the masonry type construction in the area.

    The Development Review Board recommends that the Planning Director's decision be modified to result in a wall section and details (e.g. window sills and door/window recessions) which are more in keeping with the appearance of masonry construction.

    The City Manager finds that the wall sections and details, as shown, reflect the intent of the Design Review Board's recommendation without modification of the Planning Director's decision. Revisions include recessed windows and doors and use of concrete window sills. The City Manager recommends that the Planning Director's decision be upheld.

9. PUBLIC HEARING: APPLICATIONS BY TUCSON GREYHOUND PARK FOR OFF-TRACK BETTING SITES

    (a) Report from City Manager APRIL8-02-198 WIII, WV, & WVI

    (d) Resolution No. 19172 relating to dog racing; approving the Airport Inn, 2302 East Valencia Road, Tucson, Arizona, as an off-track betting site for the Tucson Greyhound Racetrack; and declaring an emergency. (Ward 5)

    (e) Resolution No. 19173 relating to dog racing; approving the relocation of the existing facility located at the Sports Page Lounge, 915 W. Prince Road, to the Golden Pin Lanes, 1010 West Miracle Mile Road, Tucson, Arizona, as an off-track betting site for the Tucson Greyhound Racetrack; and declaring an emergency. (Ward 3)

10. PUBLIC HEARING: ESTABLISHING ORIGINAL CITY ZONING FOR THE HUGHES ACCESS ROAD/STATE LAND ANNEXATION DISTRICT (C15-02-02)

    (a) Report from City Manager APRIL8-02-195 WV

    (b) Hearing on the establishment of original City zoning for the Hughes Access Road/State Land Annexation District. The property is approximately 1,688 acres (2.64 square miles) generally located south of Hughes Access Road and east and west of Country Club Road. The current County zoning is RH and CI-2. The appropriate City zoning is RH and I-2. The City Manager recommends that the Mayor and Council adopt the attached ordinance establishing original City zoning, extending the Major Streets and Routes designation for Nogales Old Vail Connection Road within the annexation district, and extending applicability of the Environmental Resource Zone (ERZ) for certain washes within the annexation district.

    (c) Ordinance No. 9692 relating to zoning; establishing original City zoning for approximately 1,688 acres generally located south of Hughes Access Road and east and west of Country Club Road, which was annexed to the City of Tucson by Ordinance No. 9646, adopted on January 7, 2002; and specifying an effective date. (Ward 5)

11. PUBLIC HEARING: GRANT/ALVERNON AREA PLAN AMENDMENT, FORT LOWELL ROAD/SYCAMORE AVENUE

    (a) Report from City Manager APRIL8-02-203 WII

    ADDED (b) Hearing. Request by Planning Resources on behalf of the property owners to amend the Grant/Alvernon Area Plan (GAAP) for property located on the south side of Fort Lowell Road between Alvernon Way and Columbus Boulevard to establish a new Sub-Area 3. The proposed amendment would allow neighborhood commercial use on a "U" shaped site currently designated for residential use.

    ADDED (c) Resolution No. 19179 relating to planning and zoning; amending the Grant-Alvernon Area Plan; and declaring an emergency. (Ward 2)

    The Planning Commission voted 7-4 to recommend denial of the proposed amendment because residential uses continue to be the most appropriate use in the midblock sections of both sides of Fort Lowell Road, between Alvernon Way and Columbus Boulevard, and the design constraints due to the "U" shape of the development site.

    The City Manager recommends denial of the proposed GAAP amendment. Should the Mayor and Council want to approve other development options for the site, it is recommended that GAAP be amended to allow Neighborhood Commercial, Office and High-Density Residential for the western and southern portions of the expanded amendment site, and Office and High-Density Residential on the eastern portion, with additional policy direction to mitigate commercial.
