NEW BUSINESS:  

  1. John S. Kern’s Minor Subdivision request on Coleman Blvd.  John S. Kern presented the request to subdivide a 10.173- acre tract into two lots.  The property is located on the north side of U.S.Highway 80, along the east side of Coleman Boulevard adjacent to the SPA Industrial Park.  Mr. Kern stated that a warehouse and packaging facility is proposed on Lot 3A but that the owner has no plans at this time for Lot 3B.  With no public comment, a motion was made by Larry Olliff to approve the minor subdivision on Coleman Blvd.  Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed with no opposition.
  1. Savannah Manufacturing Conceptual Site Plan/Landscape Plan on Coleman Blvd.
John Kern presented the conceptual site plan to the board for their review and comments.He explained this was an unusual site plan because the parking and detention area is located on Central of Georgia right-of-way that is within the city limits of Savannah.  Chairman Holly Young asked if they had a pending sales contract with the Central of Georgia.  Mr. Kern stated that he was informed yesterday that there is a title problem with this railroad right-of-way.  It is not clear at this time if the Central of Georgia owns the railroad right-of-way or the Department of Transportation.  If they are unable to acquire this property, Mr. Kern has developed a site plan that would have everything, including parking and detention within the City of Pooler.  A motion was made by Joe Harmon to approve Savannah Manufacturing conceptual site plan as proposed with the condition that the railroad property is acquired prior to any development.  Motion was seconded by Tim Lovezzolla and passed without opposition. Regarding the landscape plan, Mr. Kern stated that they were able to save a lot of beautiful trees throughout the site particularly along the Coleman Blvd. right-of-way that would serve as a natural buffer.  The board agreed that the proposed conceptual site plan met the requirements of the tree ordinance.  Therefore, Larry Olliff made a motion to approve the proposed landscape plan with the condition that the railroad property is acquired prior to any development.    Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition. .  

  1. Garden Acres MH Park Revised Drainage/Recreational Master Plan.    
    Steve Wohlfeil of HGB&D presented the revised Drainage/Recreational Master Plan to the board for their review and comments.  Mayor and Council approved the current Master Plan on July 17, 2000.  The revised plan reflects an increase in average lot size from 40’ x 100’ to 50’ x 100’ to allow for doublewides.  Chairman Holly Young questioned if the access road to the recreational area would be paved.  Mr. Wohlfeil stated that Mr.Tuten’s intention is for the residents of the mobile home park to access the recreational area by walking or bike trails, not vehicles. The board was concerned about emergency vehicles not being able to access the recreational area.  Mr. Wohlfeil stated the dirt access was on the master plan that was approved by Mayor and Council on July 17, 2000.  With no public comment, a motion was made by Judson Trapnell to approve the Garden Acres MH Park Revised Drainage/Recreational Master Plan.  Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed without opposition.
  1. Westbrook Golf Clubhouse @ Savannah Quarters Revised Site Plan.  Steve Wohlfeil of HGB&D presented the revised site plan and greenspace plan to the board for their review and comments.  Mayor and Council previously approved the Clubhouse project on August 7, 2000. The owner, Hall Development, has decided to revise the layout to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the site and proposed uses.  The uses of the site and the engineering design concepts remain unchanged.  The main revisions consist of replacing the previous looped main driveway with a single entrance and locating all of the residential villas in a single area.  The final detailed greenspace design will be completed at a later date by the Owner’s Landscape Architect.  All landscaping and species of proposed trees shall be in accordance with the City of Pooler’s Tree Ordinance requirements.  A motion was made by Joe Harmon to approve the revised Westbrook Golf Clubhouse Site Plan contingent upon all of the engineer’s comments being addressed.  Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed without opposition.

He stated that revised plans had been delivered to Bill Nicholson’s office addressing his comments.  A motion was made by Tim Lovezzola to approve the site plan for an office building at 205 S. Skinner Street.  Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed without opposition. Regarding the landscape plan, Mr. Young explained he has fourteen trees existing and will plant an additional eight trees that would more than meet the tree ordinance requirements of the City of Pooler.  A motion was made by Judson Trapnell to approve the landscape plan for the proposed office building at 205 S. Skinner Street.  Motion was seconded by Tim Lovezzola and passed without opposition.

       6.   Hargray Telecommunications Site Plan @ Godley Station Amenities Area. 

Terry Coleman of EMC Engineering Services, Inc. presented the site plan to the board for their review and comments.  Mr. Coleman explained there is neither water nor sewer to the building.  The site will feature a 480 square foot building with surrounding gravel parking, all on a .06-acre site.  The building location is behind the berm in the forty foot wide buffer area that has been relocated to the north of the site.  Chairman Young questioned if the building would be enclosed and secured to protect children in the neighborhood.  Door alarms and combination pad locks are proposed along with a wooden privacy fence.  Following some discussion, a motion was made by Joe Harmon to approve the Hargray Telecommunications Site Plan contingent upon all of the engineering comments being addressed.  Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed without opposition.

CITY OF POOLER
PLANNING AND ZONING MINUTES
FEBRUARY 26, 2001

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Pooler Planning and Zoning Commission was held on Monday, February 26, 2001 at 6 p.m. Members present were: Larry Olliff, Tim Lovezzola, Holly Young, Fleta Pepper, Debbie Ryan Watts, Craig Brewer and Judson Trapnell. Zoning Administrator Jackie Carver, City Planner Tim Inglis and Councilwoman Billie Tyler were also in attendance. Chairman Holly Young called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m.

The minutes of the previous meeting were approved upon a motion made by Larry Olliff. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.

PUBLIC HEARINGS:

1. Billboard Height Variance for Trinity Outdoor, Inc. Morgan Hudgens with Trinity Outdoor Inc. presented the request for a 40’ height variance for a proposed billboard in the Southeast Quadrant of I-95 and U.S. Highway 80. Trinity Outdoor Inc. would be leasing land from Norfolk Southern Railroad to place the billboard if the variance is approved. Mr. Hudgens explained at this section of the road, I-95 passes over the railroad; therefore the roadway itself is greater than 30 feet above the ground that the sign is to be built upon. Also the Georgia Department of Transportation has not exercised vegetation control and removal on state routes nor has it permitted private industry to do so. This combination of conditions, over which the landowner has no control creates a situation where the sign is not adequately visible to passing motorists at the 30 foot overall height currently allowed by ordinance. Fred Gretsch, as partner of PV Shopping Center Partnership LLP and as President of Fred Gretsch Ent. LTD expressed his reasons for opposing the requested variance. He owns 100 acres to the north of this site and this approval would deny him use of his property for billboards and limit signage for future development. Mr. Hudgens with Trinity Outdoor, Inc. stated that Mr. Gretsch would still be able to put up a billboard based on the distance from the longest ramp and spacing the billboards 500’ apart. As for future development, they would be able to place an on-premise sign next to I-95 if they chose to do so. Mr. Hudgens stated that the requested height of the proposed billboard would be consistent with the two billboards located directly across I-95 on the Northwest quadrant of I-95 and the railroad. Commissioner Watts asked if the two billboards directly across I-95 were granted variances. Mrs. Carver stated the individual approving sign permits at that time must have based his approval on DOT approval and didn’t realize we had a lower height restriction than the DOT. Attorney Rebecca Benton, who leases billboard space on the northside of I-95, stated the board would be setting a precedent for others to follow. Following some discussion from the board, a motion to deny the variance was made by Debbie Ryan Watts and seconded by Larry Olliff. Motion passed with Judson Trapnell opposing.

2. Variance request for a secondary principal use sign at the entrance to the Best Western Motel. Jason Wisenbaker of ANS Signs, Inc. presented the request to the board for their consideration. He explained his client is proposing a hi-rise sign visible from I-95 that would be the primary principal use sign. According to the City of Pooler’s sign ordinance no more than one freestanding principal use sign is permitted for a single business location. Due to limited visibility, the owner feels a secondary principal use sign is needed to direct customers once they get off I-95 to the motel. Glen Sawyer of Sawyer Enterprises, Inc. stated the new Best Western has a 100 space meeting room, business center, pool, spa and sauna. The upscale facility will hopefully be an asset to the City of Pooler as well as companies such as JCB and the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. Following some discussion, Fleta Pepper made a motion to approve the variance for a secondary principal use sign at the Best Western Motel on Bourne Avenue. Motion was seconded by Craig Brewer and passed with Judson Trapnell and Larry Olliff opposing.

NEW BUSINESS:

3. Ashwood Subdivision, Phase II Final Plat Review and Approval. Terry Coleman of John Kern’s Engineering Firm presented the final plat of Ashwood Subdivision for the board’s review. Mr. Coleman stated that Sun Trust Bank is in the process of issuing the Letter of Credit for Phase II, Ashwood Subdivision. Debbie Ryan Watts suggested placing information about the undisturbed buffers in protective covenants so that new property owners are made aware of the restrictions within the buffers. She recommended placing a note on the subdivision plat referencing restrictions in the undisturbed buffers. The board also asked Mr. Coleman to add some lot line measurements that were left off the plat. Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to approve the final plat of Phase II Ashwood Subdivision contingent upon receiving the Letter of Credit, placing a note on the plat about undisturbed buffers and adding the missing lot line measurements to the plat. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed with no opposition.

4. Christine Moore’s minor subdivision request at 404 Salter Street. Don Taylor presented the minor subdivision request on behalf of the property owner. The only comment from the board was building setback lines were left off of the plat. Larry Olliff made a motion to approve Christine Moore’s minor subdivision at 404 Salter Street pending the addition of setback lines. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without oposition.

Fred Williams appeared before the Planning and Zoning Commission to discuss the City of Pooler’s policy on fencing within easements. He is requesting that the City set some guidelines on how decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Mrs. Carver suggested that Councilwoman Billie Tyler meet with her committee and Director of Public Works Tim Inglis to discuss this matter.

There being no further business to come before the board, a motion of adjournment was made by Judson Trapnell and seconded by Larry Olliff.

The minutes of the previous meeting were approved upon a motion made by Larry Olliff. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.

New Business:

Minor Subdivision at the northwest corner of Towne Commerce Drive and Pooler Parkway.
Craig Brewer excused himself from any discussion on this item due to a conflict of interest. Steve Byrd of Thomas & Hutton presented the minor subdivision to the board for their review and comments. Mr. Byrd stated that access to lots 10 and 11 would be thru Traders Way. With no public comments, Larry Olliff made a motion to approve the minor subdivision. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed with no opposition.

Parkway Loop Connector Road Construction Plans. Steve Wohlfeil of HGB&D reminded the board that this road was approved in June of last year on a master plan of the approved median cuts along the Pooler Parkway. Chairman Young questioned the road being located within an access easement and the need for tracing wire over the storm lines. Mr. Wohlfeil confirmed that the road would be located within an access easement and would be a private road with no water and sewer lines. Mr. Wohlfeil stated that tracing wire is not required by the current city ordinance but he could justify the need for tracing wire if the road would be dedicated to the City of Pooler at a later date. Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to approve the construction plans for the Pooler Parkway Loop Connector Road contingent upon adding tracing wire to the plans. Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed without opposition.
Landscape Plan of Premier Fabricators, Inc. on Eason Drive. Harold Walker of Walker Consolidated Industries, Inc. and Patrick Burk of Stevenson & Palmer presented the landscape plan to the board for their review and comments. The only question the board had was if the proposed oak tree was on the list of preferred trees. Mr. Burke was not familiar with the type of trees noted on the landscape plan but confirmed that the trees would be from the list of preferred trees. Mr. Harold Walker stated he has plans to double the size of the proposed building at a later date. He further stated that forcing him to meet the tree ordinance was limiting the use of his property. He felt the board should make an exception because of requirements placed on his project by the Chatham County Health Department regarding septic tanks. The board sympathized with Mr. Walker but felt they could not exempt him from meeting the tree ordinance. Following some discussion, a motion was made by Joe Harmon to approve the landscape plan for Premier Fabricators, Inc. pending confirmation that the designated trees are from the list of preferred trees as noted in the City of Pooler’s Tree Ordinance. Motion was seconded by Debbie Ryan Watts and passed with no opposition.
Discussion of ordinance change regarding shipping containers. Councilwoman Billie Tyler explained to the board that Mayor and Council had issued a temporary permit to Wal-Mart for three containers to stock spring inventory. Wal-mart asked if the City of Pooler could set a policy regarding container use by businesses on a seasonal basis. Mayor and Council have again requested the Planning and Zoning Commission to review the ordinance and recommend some changes. The board had been given a list of some suggestions from staff to review for further comments during the meeting. Commissioner Larry Olliff recommended that the “number of containers” in suggestion #2 be changed to read “total square footage of containers”. Commissioner Judson Trapnell questioned if “out of view of the general public” in suggestion #3 included pedestrian traffic along I-95. Attorney Brandon Galloway recommended some clarification on # 3 regarding the placement of containers behind the business and out of view of the general public. He suggested referencing traffic in the area as opposed to the general public Mr. Galloway also recommended changing # 2 so allowances would be made for businesses too small to meet the square footage requirement but could meet all the other listed criteria. He also suggested changing # 5 to charge a penalty per container instead of a penalty per day for the violation. Councilwoman Tyler didn’t have a problem with the $25.00 application fee but she questioned the need to charge for each container permitted. She also suggested that some type of clause be added to allow containers during an emergency such as hurricanes, etc. where supplies would need to be stockpiled quickly for the public. Chairman Young suggested that storage buildings behind commercial businesses be addressed in this proposed ordinance. Chairman Young also expressed her concern about the amount of revenue the City is missing by not requiring these businesses to build additional buildings for storage. Mrs. Carver stated that she would contact some surrounding municipalities to see if they restrict containers and storage buildings on commercial properties. Fleta Pepper made a motion to table this item for further discussion. Motion was seconded by Debbie Ryan Watts and passed without opposition.
There being no further business to come before the board, a motion of adjournment was made by Joe Harmon and seconded by Judson Trapnell.

PUBLIC HEARINGS:

Darrel Hutcheson et al request to rezone 201.82 acres along the Jimmy DeLoach Parkway from R-A to I-1, a Light Industrial Zoning. Darrel Hutcheson presented this request to the board for their review and recommendation. Mr. Hutcheson stated that they had purchased the property twelve years ago with the intention of developing a residential subdivision at a later time. Plans were drawn and a wetlands study was done three years ago, but a soil study showed the type of soil was not conducive to installing individual septic tanks. The property to the east of this tract was annexed by the City of Savannah and zoned Light Industrial. Keen Trucking Company has built a large truck transport terminal on this site. Mr. Hutcheson further stated that the property would be developed in a manner that would not adversely impact the adjacent residentially zoned area. Chairman Young reminded the board that the proposed Morgan Lakes Subdivision is located to the west of this site and to the south is lands owned by International Paper. Mr. R. W. Barnwell, an adjacent property owner who has lived on his property since 1968 expressed his opposition to the rezoning of any other lands around him to Light Industrial. He stated that as a property owner he was not notified by the City of Savannah of the rezoning of the property to the east where Keen Trucking Company is located. He is concerned with potential truck traffic and noise if the property is rezoned to Light Industrial. Mrs. Barnwell presented a petition with thirty-five signatures opposing the rezoning. Commissioner Larry Olliff suggested getting input from property owners along the Jimmy DeLoach Parkway and possibly doing a comprehensive rezoning of the area. Commissioner Debbie Ryan Watts is concerned about how a Light Industrial Zoning would impact the residents that live in the area. Following some discussion, Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to deny the rezoning of 201.82 acres along the Jimmy DeLoach Parkway from R-A, to I-1. Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed with Larry Olliff opposing.
Minor Subdivision of Lot 12 out of Mill Creek Village. Craig Brewer excused himself from any discussion of this item due to a conflict of interest. Dale Yawn of Thomas & Hutton Engineering Company presented a minor subdivision plat of Lot 12, which is located in the southeast corner of Mill Creek Circle and Benton Blvd. Mr. Yawn stated that he had revised the plat to reflect a 30’ building setback from Mill Creek Circle instead of a 60’ building setback. He displayed a copy of the minutes from January 17, 2000 Council meeting wherein a 30’ building setback around Mill Creek Circle was approved. A motion was made by Tim Lovezzola to approve the minor subdivision of lot 12 out of an 11.85- acre tract. Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed without opposition.
Williams Hollow and Creekside Subdivisions Final Plat Review/Approval. Mr. Fred Williams presented the plats to the board. He stated that he would like to record the plats by posting a bond to insure the completion of the improvements. Bill Nicholson has approved the amount of the bond and Mr. Williams stated the bond is forthcoming. Mr. Williams explained Williams Hollow Drive shall be a private road and the owner of lot 3 shall maintain the street and curb and gutter of Williams Hollow Drive. City Planner Tim Inglis asked if a homeowners association would own lot 3. Mr. Williams stated that Williams Hollow is such a small subdivision that all of the property owners will own a portion of lot 3. Chairman Young asked what would be on lot 3 and Mr. Williams stated that a recreation center is planned. Commissioner Debbie Ryan Watts questioned if Mr. Williams sells any of these lots how would it be conveyed to future property owners that they are responsible for the maintenance of Williams Hollow Drive. The reason Mr. Williams has requested that Williams Hollow Drive be a private street is because it is going to be a gated community. Chairman Young agrees with Commissioner Debbie Ryan Watts concerning the need for some type of deed restriction to inform each property owner of their obligation to maintain the curb and gutter and Williams Hollow Drive. Mr. Williams asked that the board approve the Williams Hollow Subdivision contingent upon the City Attorney approving the notes on the plat referencing the above issues. Chairman Young also asked for clarification from the City Attorney as to whom will be responsible for the maintenance of lot 3. Craig Brewer made a motion to table the approval of Williams Hollow Subdivision until the City Attorney has had a chance to review the notes on the plat. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition. With no comments regarding the final plat of Creekside Subdivision (formerly The Bramblings), Joe Harmon made a motion to approve the plat for recording. Motion was seconded by Debbie Ryan Watts and passed with no opposition.
Premier Fabricators, Inc. Site Plan Review Patrick Burk of Stevenson & Palmer Engineering, Inc. presented the site plan for construction of a building on Eason Drive. Mr. Burk stated that he would have all of Bill Nicholson’s comments addressed prior to council’s meeting on Monday. There was some discussion regarding the landscape plan that was approved two weeks ago. Chairman Young stated that if the property owner wishes to make a change in the landscape plan it would need to be approved by Mayor and Council. Following some discussion, Joe Harmon made a motion to approve Premier Fabricators, Inc. site plan contingent upon all of the comments being addressed. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.
Hargray Wireless Site Plan/Landscape Plan Review. Jeffrey Carr of P.C. Simonton & Associates, Inc. was present on behalf of Hargray Wireless to answer any questions the board may have.

With no public comment, Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to approve the Hargray Wireless Site Plan pending confirmation from Bill Nicholson that all of his comments have been addressed. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed with no opposition.
Garden Acres Mobile Home Park, Phase II Construction Plan Review. Steve Wohlfeil of HGB&D presented the plans to the board for their review and comments. Mr. Wohlfeil reminded the board that when Mayor and Council approved the drainage/recreational master plan for this project back in February, a stipulation was placed on that approval that a substantial amount of the recreational area needed to be completed prior to approving construction plans for Phase II of the mobile home park. Mr. Wohlfeil stated that he plans to have all of the engineer’s comments addressed prior to the council meeting on Monday. With no public comments, Judson Trapnell made a motion to approve construction plans for Phase II of Garden Acres Mobile Home Park contingent upon all of the engineer’s comments being addressed and completion of a substantial amount of the recreational area that was approved on the master plan. Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed without opposition.
Rolland Keller Landscape Plan on Sharon Court, Lots 27B & 28A. Mr. Rolland Keller stated these lots contain a lot of wetlands and he is requesting approval to clear and fill these lots to satisfy an old wetlands permit that will expire within a year. Mr. Keller has submitted plans to replant trees to meet the City of Pooler’s tree ordinance.
Mr. Tim Inglis recommended placing a time schedule to replant trees. Following some discussion, Judson Trapnell made a motion to approve the landscape plan on lots 27B and 28A contingent upon the replanting of the trees be completed within 6 months after the issuance of the LDA permit. Motion was seconded by Craig Brewer and passed without opposition.

Pooler Plaza Site Plan/Landscape Plan Review. Steve Wohlfeil presented the site plan for Pooler Plaza on behalf of Donald Dyches. Mr. Wohlfeil stated the plans have been revised to add a 20’ greenbelt buffer from the residentially zoned areas. The proposed building will be located on eastbound Highway 80 across from the Pooler Library and will be used for retail office space. Commissioner Judson Trapnell asked if the dumpster location could be moved from the front of the building next to Highway 80. Other locations were discussed, but to meet setback requirements this was the only possible location without obtaining a variance. Councilwoman Tyler suggested a change in the name of the plaza since we already have Pooler Plaza in our city. Mr. Dyches agreed to come up with another name for the plaza. With no further comments, Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to approve the site plan for this project contingent upon all of the engineer’s comments being addressed. Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed without opposition. A motion was also made by Judson Trapnell to approve the landscape plan for this project. Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed with no opposition.
Westbrook Subdivision, Phase I Final Plat Review/Approval. Steve Wohlfeil of HGB&D stated this is the residential portion of Savannah Quarters. They are ready to record the plat and bond the rest of the improvements. Chairman Young asked where the developer got the names for the streets in Westbrook Subdivision. Mr. Wohlfeil stated the street names were taken from a town in England where James Oglethorpe was born.
A motion was made by Joe Harmon to approve the final plat of Westbrook Subdivision, Phase I contingent upon the receipt and approval of a performance bond in the amount of $295,080. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.

Discussion of ordinance change regarding shipping containers. Mrs. Carver reviewed the proposed list of changes with the board. She also gave a short narrative regarding how other cities address the use of shipping containers. The board made the following suggestions: change the maximum period for a permit from 70 days to 60 days, change the penalty charge from 100.00 per container/per day to $250.00 per container/per day after the 60-day permit has expired. The board also recommended revoking permit privileges after a second violation. They are also concerned about the business located behind a business that is permitted to place shipping containers to the rear of the building. In this instance, the containers would not be out of view of the general public. An example of this would be the Jameson Inn that sits behind the Cracker Barrel. In a case like this, the board may need to require some type of buffering or screening for a container to be out of view of the general public. Following a lot of discussion, the board felt they needed to table this item for two weeks.
There being no further business to come before the board, a motion of adjournment was made by Joe Harmon and seconded by Judson Trapnell.

CITY OF POOLER
PLANNING AND ZONING MINUTES
APRIL 23, 2001

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Pooler Planning and Zoning Commission was held on Monday, April 23, 2001 at 6:00 p.m. Members present were: Larry Olliff, Joe Harmon, Debbie Ryan Watts, Craig Brewer, Holly Young, Judson Trapnell and Tim Lovezzola. Zoning Administrator Jackie Carver, City Planner Tim Inglis, Councilwoman Billie Tyler and Councilman Travis Cowart, Jr. were also in attendance. Chairman Holly Young called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m.

The minutes of the previous meeting were approved upon a motion made by Larry Olliff.

Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.

PUBLIC HEARINGS:

John Water’s request for a rear setback variance for installation of a swimming pool. Mr. John Waters of 143 Village Lake Drive presented the variance request to the board for their review and consideration. He would like to install a 14’ x 28’ swimming pool 5 feet from the rear property line. With only 26 feet from his house to the rear property line it would be difficult to install the pool and leave 10 feet from his rear property line. The rear of his lot abuts a 100’ buffer that will remain in its natural state. Commissioner Larry Olliff asked about the width of the deck around the pool. Mr. Waters stated that the deck would extend from the house down 10’ on each side of the pool and all the way to the fence on the rear. Mr. Waters stated that he became aware of the 26’ distance in his backyard when he received a copy of his site plan. He is unable to shift the pool closer to the house because this may undermine the foundation. City Planner Tim Inglis reminded the board members that when Jerry Konter approached Mayor and Council with the smaller lots in Towne Lake he assured them that swimming pools would not be an issue. John Carter of 150 Village Lake Drive sympathized with Mr. Waters but stated that he is concerned about run-off onto adjacent properties. Chairman Young stated that with other small lots in Towne Lake, this would certainly set a precedent for other variances. Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to deny Mr. Water’s request for a 5’ rear setback variance for installation of a swimming pool. Motion was seconded by Joe Harmon and passed without opposition.
OLD BUSINESS:

Williams Hollow Final Plat Review/Approval. At the request of Attorney Wiley Ellis, a motion was made by Judson Trapnell to table this item. Motion was seconded by Larry Olliff and passed without opposition.
Discussion of ordinance change regarding shipping containers. The board had been given copies of the changes proposed at the April 9th meeting. Mrs. Carver and Councilwoman Billie Tyler had invited representatives from Home Depot, Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel for their input on the proposed ordinance regarding shipping containers. Jerry Jackson from Wal-Mart expressed the following concerns. He needs a minimum of 90 days on each permit. He does not want to be held to only two permits if the need arises for containers at other times of the year. With the volume and success of the Pooler Wal-Mart, he will need more containers than the 5% will allow. He’s fine with the $25.00 application fee but has a problem with the $50.00 per container charge and the $250.00/per container/per day penalty charge. Commissioner Debbie Ryan Watts asked Mr. Jackson how the absence of containers would impact the citizens of Pooler. In that case, stock items would be low and citizens would go elsewhere to purchase these items. Councilman Travis Cowart, Jr. reminded the board that Mayor and Council has granted Wal-Mart a 90-day permit for containers on two different occasions. Mr. Cowart recommended changing the verbiage to read, “two nonconsecutive permits per year”. Chairman Young stated that the board doesn’t want businesses like Wal-Mart to use containers as a tool to avoid building a warehouse nearby.
Mr. Jackson stated that Wal-Mart is willing to put a fence or whatever is necessary to hide the containers from view of adjacent property owners. City Planner Tim Inglis suggested a natural landscaped screening instead of a fence.

Chairman Young thanked Mr. Jackson for taking the time to come and give his comments. This item was tabled for further discussion.

PUBLIC HEARING:

Cingular Wireless/Conditional Use Request and Variance Request for a Telecommunications Tower in a residentially zoned area. Attorney Paul Felser presented this request on behalf of Cingular Wireless and Crown Castle Communications.
Cingular Wireless is requesting a conditional use as well as a 125’ height variance to place a 160’ monopole tower in the northwest quadrant of Godley Station Blvd. and Benton Blvd. The proposed tower will provide additional coverage to the north side of Pooler in and around the Wal-mart area. Mr. Felser stated they have contacted all of the adjacent property owners around the site and have received no objections. They have also followed all the FAA administrative procedures regarding proposed tower heights. The site location is undeveloped and will remain adequately screened and buffered.

Danny Scudder of Crown Castle Communications stated that the proposed tower is designed for four possible carriers. Mr. Felser stated that Cingular Wireless has a significate gap in coverage and according to our FCC license we are required to provide continuous coverage to our customers. Councilwoman Billie Tyler asked if the applicant could not use or co-locate on an existing tower already in the area. Mr. Felser stated that co-locating is always the first option for consideration. Charts were presented to the board showing existing coverage and gaps in coverage. The closest cingular tower carrier is located behind the Food Lion. The issue of lighting would be dictated by FAA requirements. Elizabeth Hill of American Tower appeared before the board to make them aware of her proposal for an alternate site off Jimmy Deloach Parkway approximately l/2 mile from the cingular site. The application has been filed with the City of Pooler and a public hearing is scheduled for June 11th before the Planning and Zoning Commission. Miss Hill asked if the board would consider tabling this item and hearing both petitions on June 11th. With Miss Hill’s application, only a height variance would be needed. In response, Mr. Felser stated that even though the towers may be close, the American Tower Site cannot provide the same coverage needs that Cingular Wireless requires in order to meet its license requirements. Felser stated that this is not an either or situation and that each petition should be received and considered on it’s own merits. For the record, the Branigar Organization was not represented at this public hearing nor did they send any written comments. Joe Harmon made a motion to approve the conditional use and height variance for Cingular Wireless contingent upon the site being adequately screened/buffered and lighting not being a nuisance to the adjacent residentially zoned areas and the churches proposed nearby. Motion was seconded by Judson Trapnell and passed without opposition.

Besides Hargray Wireless and Triton PCS, Inc., the facility is designed to hold two additional carriers.

Within the Jabot PUD, the southern 56.02 acres will be zoned for Multi-Family and the northern 50.15 acres will be zoned for Single Family Residential. Craig Brewer excused himself from any discussion on this item due to a conflict of interest. Jeff Halliburton of Thomas & Hutton was present to answer any questions the board may have regarding these petitions.

The 136.69 acres is owned by Pooler Acres LLC and is presently zoned MH-2B, a Manufactured Home Subdivision Zoning. The petitioner is requesting the northern 50.15 acres to be zoned for Single Family Residential and the southern 56.02 acres to be zoned for Multi-Family. With the additional acreage being zoned for Multi-Family development, the density of the PUD will not change from the original approved PUD Master Plan approved on September 5, 2000. The Single Family Zoning District would be developed according to the City of Pooler’s R1-A Zoning requirements. The Multi-Family Zoning District would be developed according to the standards approved for multi-family in the original Jabot PUD Master Plan. Barbara Sherrod, an adjacent property owner, is concerned about how this development would affect the surrounding property owners who live in low-lying areas with existing drainage and flooding problems. Mr. Jeff Halliburton explained that drainage is the most critical part of any development and would be designed according to the City of Pooler’s requirements. Wetlands throughout this property will act as holding areas for drainage and additional detention areas and lagoons will be designed. The Planning and Zoning Commission will have a chance to review the development plans before any construction plans are approved. John and Ruth Moore, area residents, expressed their concerns about drainage and the increase in traffic on Pine Barren Road if this area is developed. Mr. Moore would prefer that if there is an entrance from Pine Barren Road that it be designed away from the curve and limit the access to the Single Family Development. Mr. Halliburton stated that it is the intent of the developer to have the main entrance to the Multi-Family development off the Pooler Parkway. In fact, the first phase of the multi-family development will be adjacent to the Pooler Parkway. With no further comments, a motion was made by Fleta Pepper to approve the petition to add approximately 136.69 acres to the existing Jabot PUD Master Plan. Motion was seconded by Tim Lovezzola and passed without opposition. In a second motion, Larry Olliff recommended the rezoning of the 136.69 acres from MH-2B to a PUD Zoning with the southern 56.02 acres zoned for Multi-Family and the northern 50.15 acres zoned for Single Family Residential use.

Mr. Wardlaw described the Western Tract as an upscale-gated community with 362 large lots, nice lagoons, lots of greenspace and amenities. Homes within the Western Tract will begin at $250,000.00. Twenty acres within this gated community have been set aside for some upscale town homes or apartments. This is part of the 35 acres zoned for multi-family within the PUD Master Plan. Chairman Young questioned the access of emergency vehicles to the lagoons. Mr. Wardlaw assured the commission that at least a 25’ access easement would be provided for this purpose. The Northern Tract contains 508 lots with an overall density of 2.5 lots per acre. The lot sizes vary from 6500 sq. ft. to 8800 ft. Some of the comments from the PUD Review Board on the Northern Tract included the following: parking problems and minimum lot coverage with 65’ width lots and clarification from The Branigar Group regarding duplexes within the PUD Master Plan. With concern about duplexes and the small lots, Mr. Wardlaw stated that they are willing to change the acres set aside for duplexes to 70’ width single-family lots and work some more on the neo-traditional design. Mr. Wardlaw thanked the board for their input and stated they would bring some pictures and more detailed drawings to better visualize the neo-traditional design concept.

Jack Wardlaw, Steve Hall of Godley Station Development Group, Inc. and Terry Coleman of Kern-Coleman Company presented the conceptual master plans to the PUD Review Board for their input and comments. The northern Tract consists of tracts 2, 3 and 4 and the Western Tract consists of tracts 5 and 6, which are the tract numbers from the original PUD submittal. Mr. Jack Wardlaw presented the design criteria for the Western Tract and the Northern Tract of the Godley Station. He described The Western Tract as an upscale-gated community with 362 lots, lagoons, lots of greenspace and a large amenity center. Homes within the Western Tract will begin at $250,000. The Northern Tract will contain 508 lots with an overall density of 2.5 lots per acre. The lot sizes will vary from 6500 sq. ft. to 8800 sq ft. Mr. Wardlaw explained that they are trying to create a neo-traditional architectural concept very similar to the Westbury development in Bluffton, South Carolina. Holly Young expressed her concern regarding off-street parking problems with 65’ width lots. Wilson Roberts also had a problem with 65’width lots, but was more concerned with the proposed duplexes within the development. Mr. Wardlaw stated that a significant amount of greenspace is being designed within the development and that lots could be made larger resulting in less greenspace behind the lots. With the concern about duplexes, Mr. Wardlaw stated that the developers would consider changing the acres set aside for duplexes to 70’ width single-family lots. The Branigar Group requested that the road system be adjusted so the major road access is into the Northern Tract and a minor road leads to the entrance of the Western Tract gated community. The majority of the board members were pleased with the conceptual master plans but the following comments were noted for the developers consideration: parking problems, minimum lot coverage with 65’ width lots and clarification from The Branigar Group regarding duplexes within the PUD master plan.

There being no further business to come before the PUD Review Board, a motion was made to adjourn.

PUBLIC HEARING:

Connie Rowland’s request for a side yard fence variance at 1265 D.J.’s Way.
Attorney James B. Blackburn, Jr. presented the variance request to the board on behalf of his client, Connie Rowland. Mrs. Rowland obtained a fence permit and placed the fence posts thirty feet from the street instead of thirty feet from her property line. The fence posts are approximately 12’ from her property line and 30’ from the street curbing. Attorney Blackburn stated that this is a unique situation because the lot is a double frontage lot having frontage on two streets. The adjacent property owner who would be most affected has written a letter in support of the variance. A petition was also submitted to the board with signatures of surrounding property owners that have no objections to the granting of this fence variance. Councilwoman Billie Tyler is concerned about the fence post being located within the drainage & utility easement.
Ms. Rowland stated that she understands that if the fence had to be taken down because
of repairs, the city would not be responsible for putting it back up. Attorney Blackburn
reviewed the list of criteria for granting a variance. There was a lot of discussion as to
whether the variance request met two of the three standards needed to grant the variance.
Commissioner Craig Brewer stated that he disagreed with Attorney Blackburn that a corner lot has unique physical circumstances beyond that of surrounding properties.

She questioned who would monitor the number of children and if another “Family Home Daycare” could be approved on the same cul-de-sac. Increased traffic is a concern of Mrs. Remppel as well as parking in the cul-de-sac because the mailman cannot deliver mail. Pamela Braswell of 15 Lisa’s Court spoke in favor of granting Mrs. Reid’s conditional use to operate a “Family Home Daycare”. She stated that Mrs. Reid takes good care of the children she keeps, they stay in the backyard within the designated fenced area and they do not run the neighborhood. In response, Mrs. Reid stated that at no time would there be six vehicles at her home and if additional space is needed they have an estimate on widening the driveway. After reviewing the criteria for granting a conditional use, Commissioner Debbie Ryan Watts made a motion to deny Shanda K.

Members present were: Debbie Ryan Watts, Wilson Roberts, Craig Brewer, Larry Olliff, Tim Lovezzola, Fire Chief Jimmy Fields, Councilwoman Billie Tyler, Glenda Champion and Zoning Administrator Jackie Carver.

Jack Wardlaw of Godley Station Development Group, Inc. is requesting Final PUD Master Plan approval for the Northern Tract of Godley Station. Mr. Jack Wardlaw stated that he presented a conceptual master plan for this project back in July. Some changes have been made as a result of the board’s comments during that meeting. The major difference in this project and the first phases of Godley Villages is the smaller neo-traditional style neighborhood located around a 1.6 acre rotary. The homes will consist of rear entry garages accessed from paved alleys located along the rear of the lots. The front streetscape will consist of nicely landscaped yards with each home having a front porch. There was some discussion about fencing in the front yard in the neo-traditional neighborhood. Mr. Wardlaw stated that fencing in the front yard would be restricted by covenants and may not be allowed at all. The overall density for this phase is 2.8 units per acre. Mr. Wardlaw assured Chief Fields that he would have adequate access to and around the lagoons. The project meets the PUD development standards adopted by Branigar for the Godley Station. Following some discussion, a motion was made by Jimmy Fields to approve the Final PUD Master Plan for the Northern Tract of Godley Station. Motion was seconded by Wilson Roberts and passed without opposition.

There being no further business to come before the PUD Review Board, a motion was made to adjourn.
