  1. 2.Site Plan/Landscape Plan Review for JC Lewis Ford Dealership located on Memorial Drive

 

Evan Bennett, with HGB, presented the site plan to the Board for their review and recommendation. The intent is to construct a new Ford Dealership on a site adjacent to I-16 and will include quick lubrication services for customers. The access to the site is proposed at an existing roundabout on Memorial Boulevard, located 0.33 miles east of Pooler Parkway. There were questions from the Board regarding the existing pond on site. In response, Mr. Bennet, stated that the Stormwater Inspection and Agreement Maintenance Plan includes the stormwater ponds adjacent to Memorial Boulevard within the limits of the property, and will be inspected and maintained in accordance with the agreement.  Chairman Claxton reminded the engineer that the Stormwater Facility/Infrastructure Maintenance Agreement needs to include the corporate name and the signature of the legal representative. According to the Traffic Impact Study presented by HGB, the proposed dealership that will include the quick lubrication service is estimated to produce 1,726 new trips per day on a week day. Increases in average delay are minor at both intersections (Memorial Boulevard at Pooler Parkway and Memorial Boulevard roundabout, proposed site access) analyzed for the 2023 plus project condition. The traffic study also indicates that the analysis confirms that a leading left turn phase should be installed at the intersection of Pooler Parkway and Memorial Boulevard as it is required in both, the no-build and plus project conditions, based on GDOT Policy. Chris Marsengill, with Kimley-Horn & Associates appeared before the Board, stating that he has reviewed the traffic impact study and has submitted his recommendations to the engineer, with revisions forthcoming. 

 

Result: A motion was made to recommend approval of the site plan/landscape plan for JC Lewis, contingent upon revised plans being submitted prior to City Council and $27,625.00 being paid into the tree fund.
