MEETING DATE:                     November 2, 2021

 

DEPARTMENT:                      Engineering

 

CONTACT:                       Michael Hebert PE, CFM, CPESC Assistant City Engineer

 

RECOMMENDED CITY COUNCIL ACTION: 

                     Approval of the proposed facilities agreement.

 

ITEM SUMMARY: 

                     The applicant is proposing to plat an existing 25.51 acre tract within the City of McKinney’s Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) as one lot. The City has the authority to regulate platting within the ETJ in accordance with Chapter 212 of the Texas Local Government Code and Chapter 142 of the City of McKinney Code of Ordinances.

                     Provision of adequate infrastructure, including roadway, water, sewer, and drainage systems, is a critical component of subdivision regulations and is highly dependent on land use. Determinations regarding these systems cannot be made without consideration of land use. Within city limits, the zoning ordinance provides the framework for making these determinations.

                     Chapter 212 does not authorize the City to regulate land use within the ETJ; however, it does authorize the City to enter into a Development Agreement with a property owner regarding the provision of infrastructure and land use, among other standards.

                     The applicant has indicated to Staff the desire to, other than related to the Honey Creek floodplain, not study or construct public improvements associated with the property and required by Chapter 142 of the Code of Ordinances. This agreement would relieve or defer the public improvements that exceed the amount that is roughly proportional to the proposed development on the subject property, including:

o                     The requirement to construct on-site and, if necessary off-site, underground storm drainage facilities to capture storm water drainage upon and across the Property; and

o                     The requirement to construct a minimum 12-inch diameter water line W. Cottage Hill Parkway including three and one-half (3 ½) miles of offsite 12-inch diameter water lines and appurtenances capable of supplying adequate domestic and fire flow to and through the Property from the nearest City of McKinney water line; and

o                     The requirement to construct a minimum 8-inch diameter sanitary sewer line through the Property together with approximately two and one-half (2½) miles of offsite 8-inch diameter sanitary sewer lines capable of serving the property.

                     The City conditionally agrees to grant variances to the above requirements provided that the applicant agrees to certain additional requirements. This agreement establishes these requirements, including:

o                     The use of the property shall be limited to two primary buildings, the first being a wedding venue of approximately 7,000 square feet, and one owner-occupied single-family home as well as storage facilities for the wedding venue totaling no more than 2,000 square feet.

o                     The use of the property shall be limited to uses allowed in the RED-1 Residential Estates District as identified in Chapter 146 of the Code of Ordinances, except for the proposed use of a wedding venue. 

o                     The proposed plat shall dedicate easements and rights-of-way for future public infrastructure complying with Sections 142 of the Code of Ordinances.

                     If, in the future, the property is further subdivided or replatted, or the use of the property is altered from the use identified in the agreement, then the relief or deferrals allowed by the agreement shall terminate.
