Summary Explanation and Background

SUMMARY EXPLANATION AND BACKGROUND:
PROJECT DESCRIPTION / BACKGROUND:

Vance Bindley, as agent for owner, is requesting a variance to allow ten (10) short-term parking spaces for Walmart at 12800 Pines Boulevard instead of the allowed three (3) short-term parking spaces. Walmart is considered a free-standing building, and therefore, is limited to three (3) short-term parking spaces per City Code.

The approved Walmart Site Plan (SP 2010-07) shows 695 total parking spaces provided for the 140,450 sq. ft. building with an attached garden center. 124 of these parking spaces are allocated to the adjacent commercial parcel to the east, leaving 571 parking spaces for Walmart. Current parking requirements for retail are 3.5 parking spaces per 1,000 sq. ft. of building area or 492 required parking spaces based on use. Currently there is a surplus of 79 spaces on the site.

To construct the short term parking spaces, Walmart will lose 3 spaces, thus reducing the total parking on site to 692 spaces with a surplus of 76 spaces. A future Miscellaneous Plan submittal, with all details of any proposed changes to colors of the building, proposed awnings, signage, etc. will be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Board for consideration.
