Madam President:

I move to amend Ordinance No. BL2011-885 as follows:

I. By incorporating the list of permitted uses, attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit A, as part of the SP Plan.
II. By amending Section 7 by deleting the provisions of subsection 1 and subsection 2 in their entirety, so that Section 7 shall read as follows:
“Section 7. Be it further enacted that the following shall be included on the corrected copy of the SP Plan: The ground sign standards proposed within the SP for the Central Pike frontage shall apply throughout the entire site. The plan shall be revised to eliminate the on-premises sign standards on page 3 of the SP drawing set. All other signage shall follow the standards of the MUL zoning district. Billboard standards shall apply as stated within the SP.”
III. By amending Section 8 by adding the following conditions at the end thereof:
34. Although this request is within the General Services District and is not currently serviced by Metro garbage pickup, a solid waste collection and disposal plan must be approved by the Waste Management Division of Public Works. As proposed, the SP calls for trash pick-up/collection that is not consistent with Metro standards. Prior to final SP plan approval, the trash collection plan must be approved by the Waste Management Division of Public Works. If the proposed trash pick-up/collection plan is not approved then the plan shall be revised to accommodate Metro trash pick-up/collection requirements, and could result in the reduction of the total number of units. Any changes that are not consistent with the concept of the original plan shall require approval from the Metro Council. The proposed solid waste collection and disposal plan shall be reviewed and coordinated with the Department of Public Works Solid Waste Division.
35. All parking, utilities, meter boxes, back flow preventers, heating and cooling units and other mechanical systems shall be screened to a minimum height of 3 feet, or located away from public view.
36. The minimum finished square footage of the living area of townhomes, condos or apartments shall be 550 square feet.
37. Townhomes, condominiums or apartments shall be limited to a maximum of 40% one bedroom units.
38. A minimum of 5 acres of the total site shall be non-residential. (Not to include inter-connective driveways internal to the site.)
39. The minimum finished square footage of the living area of single family homes shall be 1,600 square feet.
40. The exterior of all buildings shall be brick, natural stone, manmade stone, hard coat stucco, cement, fiber board, split face block or fiber cement siding/shingles.
41. Vinyl siding is permitted only on soffits, trim, windows, and second story dormers.
42. No fences will be allowed from the front façade of any structure to the street.
43. Residential side yard and rear yard fences shall be constructed of masonry, vinyl, aluminum, wood, ornamental iron, or equivalent products.
44. Fences for commercial uses shall also permit chain link in clad form.
45. The development shall comply with the lighting and noise standards of Article II of Chapter 17.28 of the Metropolitan Zoning Code, Operational Performance Standards.
IV. By deleting the provisions of Section 10 and substituting with the following new provisions:
“Section 10. Be it further enacted that prior to the issuance of a building permit on a lot, the arterial sidewalk as required by Metro, paved shoulder and curb and gutter per Metro standards, shall be constructed along the front side of the building lot.”
