NOR IS THE YARD OR SETBACK AREA USED TO CALCULATE THE NECESSARY USABLE AREA OF THE OUTDOOR SPACE PER CHILD AS REQUIRED BY COUNTY REGULATIONS.

THE OUTDOOR PLAY AREA IS SAFELY SEPARATED FROM ACCESS WAYS AND THE PARKING AREA, AND THERE IS NO OPERATION OF OUTDOOR PLAY ACTIVITIES AFTER 8PM PURSUANT TO THE CODE REQUIREMENT AND A NOTE PLACED ON THE SITE PLAN IDENTIFYING SUCH.

THE REQUIRED TWENTY FIVE FOOT LANDSCAPED BUFFER IS PROVIDED BETWEEN THE PLAY AREA AND THE RESIDENTIAL ZONE DISTRICT IN THE REAR OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, NO PORTION OF THE AREA WAS USED FOR THE REQUIRED LANDSCAPE BUFFER, AND THE PLAY AREA IS SEPARATED FROM THE REQUIRED LANDSCAPE BUFFER BY ALUMINUM, SIX FOOT HIGH FENCE.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE THE PLAY AREA, WHICH IS HIGHLIGHTED IN GREEN ON YOUR SCREEN, ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE. AND THEN I HIGHLIGHTED THE THE WALL WHERE THE WALL IS GOING TO BE IN RED. AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THE WALL IS PLACED 15 FEET FROM THE REAR PROPERTY LINE.

SOUTH PROPERTY LINE CONTAINS THE EXISTING HEDGEROW.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE LANDSCAPE PLAN, YOU CAN SEE THE TREES THAT WILL BE PLANTED ON THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE WALL THAT'S ADJACENT TO THE RESIDENTIAL IN THE REAR.

SO WE HAVE TREES BOTH ON INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE WALL.

PLUS YOU HAVE THE HEDGE ON THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE WALL.

THE PROPOSED NEW TREES INCLUDE SABLE PALMS, CRAPE MYRTLE TREES, LIVE OAK TREES, GUMBO LIMBO TREES, AND THE EXISTING TREES INCLUDE FOXTAIL PALMS, ROYAL POINCIANA TREES AND A LIVE OAK TREE. SHADE TREES WILL BE PLANTED WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE AREA ADJACENT TO THE SIDEWALK TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE SIDEWALK SHADING AS WELL.

ACCESS TO THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS PROVIDED BY AN INGRESS EGRESS OPENING LOCATED ON THE TWO WAY ACCESS ROAD THAT RUNS PARALLEL TO NORTH UNIVERSITY DRIVE.

LET'S SEE, THE DEVELOPMENT WILL PROVIDE A PARKING AREA LOCATED DIRECTLY OFF THE ACCESS ROAD CONTAINING 15 PARKING SPACES, THAT INCLUDES ONE ACCESSIBLE PARKING SPACE WHERE 13 PARKING SPACES ARE REQUIRED.

SO THE REQUIRED 13 AND THEY HAVE 15.

SO THERE ARE TWO OVER THE REQUIREMENT.

AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY WILL BE PROVIDED BY A SIDEWALK THAT CONNECTS DIRECTLY TO THE EXISTING SEVEN FOOT SIDEWALK ON NORTH UNIVERSITY DRIVE.

AND YOU CAN SEE I HIGHLIGHTED THAT IN YELLOW YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE THE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS, WHERE YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THE SEVEN FOOT SIDEWALK ON UNIVERSITY AND THEN CROSS OVER ONTO THE PROPERTY. THE CHILD CARE FACILITY BUILDING WILL CONTAIN SIX CHILDCARE ROOMS WITH A MAXIMUM CHILD OCCUPANCY OF ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY CHILDREN PERMITTED WITHIN SIX CHILD CARE ROOMS. THAT WORKS OUT TO 20 CHILDREN PER ROOM.

BUT DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE ROOM, IT DIFFERS DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE ROOM.

A WARMING KITCHEN WITH PANTRY AND ADMINISTRATION ROOM, OFFICE AND A JANITORIAL CLOSET IS ALSO PROVIDED WITHIN THE BUILDING.

YOU CAN SEE THOSE ON THE FLOOR PLAN THE LOCATIONS OF ALL.

A SHAPE ENTRY COLUMNS WILL PRESENT DECORATIVE LIGHTING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FRONT BUILDING ROOF OVERHANG WINDOWS WILL BE PROVIDED ON ALL SIDES OF THE BUILDING WITH THE SAME SHAPE, SMOOTH STUCCO BANDING HIGHLIGHTING THE FRONT BUILDING ROOF OVERHANG ON THE TOP OF THE BUILDING. SO YOU CAN SEE THOSE ALL ON THE ELEVATION.

YOU CAN SEE THE TWO LIGHT FIXTURES ON THE SIDES OF THE COLUMNS.

AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THOSE THE OF THE BANDING, THE MAIN ENTRY DOOR, REAR DOOR ACCESSING THE PLAY AREA. AND THE TWO SIDES WILL BE COVERED BY A BUILDING ROOF OVERHANG THAT PROVIDES PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS.

AND THE ROOF ACCENT TRIM WILL BE PAINTED MODEST WHITE IN COLOR.

AND YOU CAN SEE ALL THOSE COLORS ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN.

AN ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW OF THE PROPOSED CHILDCARE FACILITY WAS CONDUCTED BY THE CITY'S ARCHITECTURAL CONSULTANTS, ARCHITECTS INC, IN AN EFFORT TO ENHANCE THE SUSTAINABILITY AND VISUAL APPEARANCE WITHIN THE CITY.

THE ARCHITECTURAL CONSULTANT REVIEW CONFIRMS THAT ALL SITE AND BUILDING DESIGN REQUIREMENTS ARE SATISFIED, INCLUDING GENERAL BUILDING DESIGN STANDARDS THAT FOSTER HIGH QUALITY, ATTRACTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

THE GENERAL BUILDING DESIGN STANDARDS INCLUDE FORESIGHTED ARCHITECTURE, DESIGN, SHADED SIDEWALKS, SUSTAINABLE DESIGN, HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ARTICULATION, FACADE TRANSPARENCY AND PEDESTRIAN DESIGN, PRIMARY BUILDING ENTRANCE AND AMENITY REQUIREMENTS.

AND WHEN WE'RE TALKING AMENITIES, WE'RE NOT TALKING BENCHES.

WE'RE TALKING THE BUILDING OVERHANGS AND STUFF TO PROVIDE AMENITIES TO PEDESTRIANS

[00:20:11]

THROUGH THE BUILDING ARCHITECTURE, NOT THROUGH FEATURES, NOT THROUGH FEATURES OR FURNITURE. OK, SO THE TABLE OF ALLOWED USES WITHIN THE CODE OF ORDINANCES IDENTIFIES THAT A CHILD CARE FACILITY IS ALLOWED IS A SPECIAL EXCEPTION IN THE MUN MIXED USE NEIGHBORHOOD ZONING DISTRICT. SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS ARE USES ALLOWED IN THE RESPECTIVE ZONING DISTRICT ONLY IF REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY THE PLANNING BOARD.

THE PURPOSE OF THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION IS TO PROVIDE FOR INDIVIDUAL REVIEW OF CERTAIN USES THAT DUE TO THEIR NATURE RELATIONSHIP TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND POTENTIAL ADVERSE IMPACTS ON SURROUNDING AREAS, REQUIRE SPECIAL CONSIDERATION OF THEIR LOCATION, DESIGN AND METHODS OF OPERATION, AS WELL AS THE IMPOSITION OF CONDITIONS TO MITIGATE CONCERNS BEFORE THEY CAN BE DEEMED APPROPRIATE IN A ZONING DISTRICT AND COMPATIBLE WITH THEIR SURROUNDINGS. THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE IDENTIFIES REVIEW STANDARDS TO BE EMPLOYED IN ORDER FOR THE PLANNING BOARD TO MAKE FINDINGS BASED ON SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE IN THE RECORD TO APPROVE THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION, THE 10 REVIEW STANDARDS REVIEW STANDARD CONCLUSIONS THAT MUST BE MET TO ENSURE APPROVAL.

A SPECIAL EXCEPTION ARE SHOWN ON THE SCREEN IN FRONT OF YOU.

OUR RESPONSES TO THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION REVIEW STANDARDS AS THEY APPLY TO THE SUBJECT PETITION.

BASED ON COMPETENCE, SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT SUPPORTS THE PETITION BASED ON THE FACT THAT ALL CONCERNS REGARDING POTENTIAL ADVERSE IMPACTS ON THE SURROUNDING AREA HAVE BEEN MITIGATED AND THE PROPOSED CHILD CARE FACILITY USE IS DEEMED APPROPRIATE IN THE MUN MIXED USE NEIGHBORHOOD ZONING DISTRICT.

THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE ALSO IDENTIFIES SITE PLAN APPROVAL STANDARDS TO BE DETERMINED BY THE PLANNING BOARD TO APPROVE THE REQUEST.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS SITE PLAN RESPONSES TO THE SITE PLAN APPROVAL STANDARDS AS THEY APPLY TO THE SUBJECT PETITION.
