Northeast side of Horseshoe Bend Ln. near the end of the cul-de-sac
Commission District 6
Based on the application and plans as submitted and revised, Staff recommends the following actions on the required waivers from the Design Guidelines:
1) Approve the waiver to allow metal panels on the side and rear facades since landscaping will buffer the view of the side facades from the street.
2) Approve the waiver to reduce the amount of square footage required to be planted around the perimeter of the building from 50% of the area of the front and side facades to 46.5% since there is ample vegetation elsewhere on the site and the plantings meet the overall intent of this section.
3) Approve the waiver to increase the allowed lighting levels at building entries from 1.0 fc to 1.5 fc to increase safety and minimize trip hazards.
4) Approve the waiver to increase the allowed lighting levels in the driveway from 0.5 fc to 2.5 fc to increase safety and security.
Based on the application and plans as submitted and revised, Staff recommends APPROVAL of this request for a Certificate of Appropriateness for a building permit, subject to the following conditions:
1) Replatting of the lots to combine them into 1 lot. Buildings cannot cross property lines, so the property needs to be one-lotted into to meet side setback requirements.
2) Connection to sanitary sewer and meeting any other relevant requirements of the utility provider.
3) Installation of all landscaping as shown on development plan within six months of the issuance of an occupancy permit, or posting a bond with the Knox County Department of Engineering and Public Works to guarantee such installation.
4) Meeting all other applicable requirements of the Knox County Department of Engineering and Public Works.
5) Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knox County Zoning Ordinance.
6) Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knox County Fire Marshall's office.
7) Meeting all applicable requirements and obtaining all required permits from the Tennessee Department of Health.
8) No signage is requested at this time. If signage is desired in the future, a signage package would need to be submitted and would be required to meet all applicable requirements of the TTCDA.
