REPORT

 

Community Development Director David Hainley reported that the request was to rezone the property to allow one-family homes. The owner would like to build a house on this property. Local Commercial (LC) zoning does not allow one-family homes as a permitted use.

The Mainland Planning Commission and staff recommended approval of the request.

The Board was concerned with zoning to Forest Agriculture and suggested the applicant consider R-20 zoning, which matches the other lots in the neighborhood. The applicant was not present at the meeting, but Mr. Hainley said he planned to build a home on the property and R-20 would accommodate a home.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Provenzano and seconded by Commissioner Brunson to remand this item back to the Mainland Planning Commission to consider R-20 zoning instead of FA. The motion carried unanimously.

REPORT

 

Mr. Hainley reported the request was to rezone the property to legally allow a mobile home. In 1970 this property was rezoned from R-9 to TR-20 (Temporary Residential) for the location of a mobile home. In January of 1973 all TR zonings expired and the subject property reverted back to R-20, the closest single-family residential zone. A mobile home has been on this property since 1970.

The Mainland Planning Commission and staff recommended approval of the request. This item was opened for public comment yet no one addressed the Board.

9.         ZV3374 Aspen Dental:  Consider a request to add a sign to the south elevation of the Aspen Dental building located at 11455 Canal Crossing.  Approval of this request would allow three (3) signs on the building with a total of 137.47 square feet, and a total of five (5) signs allowed for this business.  The property is zoned PD and is named Canal Crossing II.  Parcel ID: 03-09725.  Jill Hopkins with Anchor Sign, Inc., agent for John Callaway, owner. REPORT

 

This property is zoned Planned Development (PD). The sign section of the PD Text (Canal Crossing II) states: “Signs shall meet the provisions of “The Zoning Ordinance” for signs allowed in a Highway Commercial Zoning district. In addition to these signs, two (2) monument signs identifying the district and the major tenants are allowed. One is permitted adjacent to Spur 25 right of way, and one is permitted adjacent to the signalized entrance on Canal Road or they may be ground mounted signs not more than eight (8) feet tall. These monument signs may be two sided with a maximum height of 35 feet, a maximum profile area of 600 square feet, and the maximum sign area of 400 square feet on each side.”

Section 810.2 of the Glynn County Zoning Ordinance details the types of signs that are allowed in a Highway Commercial (HC) zoning district. The building is split into two sides, with a different national franchise occupying each side. Section (e) of 810.2 states: “No more than three (3) building signs of any type having a total area of not more than one hundred (100) square feet shall be permitted per franchise.”

The applicant currently has two wall signs on the front and the rear of the building that measure 54 square feet each. Aspen Dental also has a sign on one monument sign that has been placed in such a way as to be viewed from Golden Isles Parkway. Mattress Firm occupies the other portion of the building and has two building signs (on the front and the side) plus the two monument signs. At the intersection of Canal Road and Golden Isles Parkway, there are trees in the right-of-way that block the visibility of the monument sign. There are also palm trees that will partially block a sign on the south side of the building.

This item was opened for public comment and a representative for the applicant and Veronica Joseph spoke in favor of the application.

 

A motion was made by Commissioner Stambaugh and seconded by Commissioner Provenzano to approve application ZV3374 to allow additional signage at 11455 Canal Crossing. The motion carried unanimously.  Resolution #R-48-16
