The board asked about the lighting, height of buildings, type of privacy fence, design of buildings and proposed hours of operation. The buildings have not been architecturally designed at this time but the hours of operation would be until 9 p.m. on week days and on Sundays till 6 p.m. Wilson Roberts questioned if the developer would be willing to give additional buffering. Under public comments: Jeff Cooper, representing Howard Holdings, pointed out to the board that the plans do not reflect access to Pooler Professional Plaza nor the Pooler Family Dental Office. All parties agree that a restrictive access easement does exist and should be annotated on any future plans for this site.

Mr. Fletcher also submitted a list of concerns expressed by the adjacent property owners. Some of the concerns listed involve buffering, setbacks, two-story buildings, lighting, fencing, detention area, traffic, hours of access, noise, signage and drainage. In response, Michael Hussey stated he would be glad to sit down with the residents to work out these concerns. Following some discussion, a motion was made by Wilson Roberts to table this item for thirty (30) days to give the developer an opportunity to meet with the adjacent property owners to address their concerns.

Public Hearings:

  1. Erhead Properties, LLC has petitioned the City of Pooler to rezone approximately 16.4 acres at 1743 Quacco Road from R-A, Residential – Agricultural Zoning to a C-1, Light Commercial Zoning District and a C-P, Commercial – Professional Zoning.
Ryan Thompson of Thomas & Hutton Engineering Company and property owner, Ryan Boland presented the rezoning request to the board for their review and recommendation. 

This item was tabled by this board on December 12, 2005 for additional information to be provided regarding potential allowable uses and buffering concerns addressed on a preliminary development plan.  At that time the developer was also asked to meet with the adjacent property owners about their concerns. In response to these concerns, the uses have been limited and the buffer has been increased from 30’ to 50’ along with a berm on the side adjacent to the lands owned by Savannah Quarters. The current zoning is R-A, a residential-agricultural zoning and the developer is now requesting a C-1, Light Commercial with conditions for a depth of 395’ adjacent to Quacco Road and conditional zoning of C-P for the remaining balance of the site.  Mr. Thompson reviewed the conditions proposed in the rezoning petition regarding uses in the C-1 zoning and the C-P zoning.  The board expressed concerns about buffering, lighting and this being a spot zoning within a residentially zoned area.  The two church sites to the north are located within the Savannah Quarters PUD but would have also been an allowable use within the R-A zoning.  There was some discussion about eliminating other allowable uses within the C-1, Light Commercial Zoning such as:  grocery stores, any type of eating establishments, neighborhood shopping centers and eliminating garages under conditional uses.  Zoning Administrator Jackie Carver explained that in the proposed development standards under conditions of the C-P, Commercial Professional Zoning you cannot add uses.  Therefore, adding the use of childcare facilities and mini-warehouses within the C-P zoning would not be permitted.  Bill Gilbert of Savannah Quarters stated that none of the adjacent lots have been sold and he would prefer this tract of land remain residential.  Many residents of Westbrook Subdivision, a residential development to the north of this tract within Savannah Quarters were present to oppose the rezoning.  The following concerns were expressed:  size of buffer, demand on utility system, narrowness of Quacco Road and more uses need to be restricted.  Dr. John Kennedy stated a lot of these concerns could have been addressed if the developer had set down with the property owners in Westbrook.  James Borgwardt, Pastor of The Lutheran Church that is located on the adjacent property to the north, would prefer that the surrounding land remain residential.  He explained the long range plan includes a sanctuary and a school for children from early childhood thru 8th grade.  Ernest and Robert Ennis, property owners across the street from this tract, spoke in favor of the rezoning.  Councilwoman Rebecca Benton asked Mr. Thompson to read for the record a list of the proposed uses.  In response, Mr. Thompson stated the uses proposed in C-1 are professional offices, banks, laundry and dry-cleaning establishments (limited to drop-off and pick-up only), grocery stores, barbershops and beauty shops, dry good stores, churches and fraternal organizations, gift shops, eating establishments with no live entertainment, theaters, heating and air conditioning sales and service, television sales and service, child care facilities, household furniture, hardware stores, retail sales, neighborhood shopping centers 10,000 square feet or less of building area and drugstores.  The conditional uses that would be allowed under C-1 are residential construction when authorized, funeral homes, service stations and mini-warehouses with a one story height limitation.  In the C-P zoning district, the following uses would be allowed:  professional offices, professional office plazas, gift shops under 2,000 square feet, drug stores under 2,000 square feet, churches and fraternal organizations, eating establishments under 2,000 square feet with no live entertainment and no drive through, furniture stores under 2,000 square feet and specialty shops under 2,000 square feet. Following some discussion, the developer did agree to eliminate the mini-warehouse use in C-1 and any restaurant use in C-P.   Commissioner Wilson Roberts stated that the C-P, Commercial Professional zoning is a transitional zoning and is appropriate for this area.  He would also recommend an Architectural Review Board with certain criteria that would require the structures to be built residential in nature.  Commissioner Jim McQueeney is concerned about the possibility of a chain reaction if this commercial rezoning request is approved.  In response, petitioner Ryan Boland reviewed the list of allowable uses in the current R-A, Residential-Agricultural zoning, some of which would be undesirable to the adjacent property owners.  Following some discussion, the developer agreed to change his request for rezoning on the lot fronting on Quacco Road from C-1 to C-P and for that lot only to include banks and eating establishments under 2,000 square feet with no live entertainment and no drive through. With no other public comment, Larry Olliff made a motion to recommend denial of Erhead Properties rezoning request of 16.43 acres at 1743 Quacco Road from R-A to C-1 and C-P.  Motion was seconded by Jim McQueeney and passed with Charles Archer and Wilson Roberts opposing. 

 

  1. Lanyard Development has petitioned the City of Pooler to rezone approximately 18 acres from a future development within the Savannah Quarters PUD to a single-family attached zoning within the Savannah Quarters PUD.   Chad Zittrouer of Kern-Coleman & Company, LLC presented amendment # 12 to the Savannah Quarters PUD Master Plan to the board for their review and recommendation.  On March 27, 2006, the PUD Review Board recommended approval of this amendment along with the development standards subject to the maximum number of units per building being  changed from 8 to 6 units per building.  Mr. Zittrouer stated that the number of units per building have been changed to 6 units per building. Phase twelve consists of 136 single family residential attached units on approximately 18 acres.  Also included as a part of this amendment is a recreation area including a lagoon on approximately 7.5 acres.   Commissioner Roberts requested the trash compactor be rotated for better access, which Mr. Zittrouer stated could be addressed with the construction plans.  Following some discussion, a motion was made by Wilson Roberts to recommend approval of the petition by Lanyard Development to rezone approximately 18 acres from a future development within the Savannah Quarters PUD to a single-family attached zoning within the Savannah Quarters PUD.  This motion would also include the development standards.  Motion was seconded by Charles Archer and passed without opposition.
