3.   Public Hearing

 

      a.   Site Plan No. 267 from Mark Robinson & Associates, on behalf of

Midland Investments, a request for site plan review and approval for a 10,000 square foot expansion at 3600 Centennial Drive.

 

Mr. Baker gave an overview of the site plan.  The property is zoned Industrial A and surrounded by Industrial A.  This property adjoins industrial property on all sides so there is no screening required.  The project must comply with the city storm water ordinance.  There are no health or safety concerns.  The dumpster is screened by two walls in addition to the exterior wall of the building.  The existing sign is identified and no new sign is proposed.  It is subject to the contingency items. 

 

Mr. Senesac asked if the petitioner provided the calculations for the parking spaces.  The 48 parking spaces are within the ordinance, 41 being the minimum. 

 

Michael Fox, Ingenuity IQ, stated that they lease from the people with Midland Investments.  The company basically works with major clients providing clean air handling equipment.  They operate research and development facilities throughout Michigan, Ohio and Western Pennsylvania and northern Kentucky.  This facility will house a lot of the support facilities.  They currently have 30 people and project to have 70 people by 2010.  Paul Haselhuhn, of Mark Robinson & Associates, and Jerry Schafer works with Mark and Paul.

 

Ms. Hanna asked if they do the fabrication in the facility.

 

They did sheet metal, piping and plumbing but not any more.  They help existing buildings to operating cleaner and healthier. 

 

No one spoke in favor or opposition of this petition.

 

b.    Site Plan No. 268 from Latitude Engineering & Surveying, Inc. on behalf of Suburban Inns, a request for site plan review and approval for a 100,000 square foot hotel at 810 Cinema Drive.

 

Mr. Poprave gave an overview of the project.  It is located north of Cinema Drive and US-10 and south of Joe Mann Boulevard.  The property is zoned Regional Commercial.  Three new curb cuts are proposed for this project.  It is going to be a five story building.  There will be a 100 person conference facility plus a restaurant.  The storm water pond behind Kohl’s was sized for this development.  They are proposing to adjust the size of the pond and build a retaining wall in order to fit the parking lot.   Five foot sidewalks will be constructed.  On the south side there is a paved non-motorized path.  There will be four fire hydrants. 

 

Ms Hanna asked about dumpsters being located by the seating area of the outside eating area.  On the east side it appears there is a discrepancy to where the property line is.  They have to purchase more property since they had to take some of the storm water.  They are adjusting it due to the storm water.  Shared parking is allowed.

 

Mr. Kozakiewicz asked if there are any plans on improving Cinema Drive.  It will be paved this fall.

 

Mr. Senesac stated that the pond needs to have a fence around it.  The retaining wall will include fence.

 

Ms. Brown asked if this is the second Holiday Inn or it is being relocated from Wackerly Street.

 

Brian Beukema, 6407 Valencia Drive, Rockford, Michigan, Peter Beukema, father, and Travis Underhill, Civil Engineer, gave a rundown about Suburban Inns.  The dumpster location in regards to the patio is set up as a service and entrance area.  The patio on the south side is where the outdoor seating will be.  The east property line is set in stone per the drawing.  The property was not officially owned when they put the proposed property line on the drawing.  It is under contract.  Bennett Construction will definitely close that deal because they are getting a driveway.  Cinema Drive improvements are on schedule.  The fence around the pond will actually be mounted on top of a concrete retaining wall per loading requirements and soil characteristics.  It will be a poured concrete wall.  They would like to maintain a green belt surrounding the property.

 

Peter Beukema stated that they are big on curb appeal.  They represent a very polished business.  In light of that, on the pond side they wanted to screen the buildings.  Kohl’s is the only building that is finished on the back side.  He is hoping to work with the adjoining property owners to see if they could add some trees on the other side of the pond to screen for them.  The dumpster would not be seen at all.  It will be missed by the view from the guests also.

 

Travis Underhill stated that the normal water level will not be touched.  He has been working with Mr. Maki and they have that resolved. 

 

Mr. Eyre asked about the temporary loading area.  Does that take away any parking? 

 

Peter Beukema stated that when the trucks are there loading and unloading they are in and out after 9:00 a.m. and the parking lot is quiet.

 

Ms. Hanna was looking at the east side, which is the front and sees one handicapped space.  Is that adequate for the lobby area?

 

The handicapped rooms are stacked up in two places in the building and in most instances the handicapped spots are in the rear of the building where the elevator is located. This hotel will be replacing the existing Holiday Inn.

 

Mr. Mead asked about the retaining wall and it seems to be a little bit questionable. 

 

You will only see the retaining wall from the back.  Between the fence and parking lot there will be spruce trees because of the good looks and volume there will be a row of cedar trees between the fence and parking lot.  There is about six and a half feet between the retaining wall and curb. 

 

Mr. Gaynor asked if they own the current Holiday Inn. 

 

They don’t but the current Holiday Inn’s franchise is currently expired.

 

Ms. Hanna asked about the parking when semi trucks come in and where do they park their rigs. 

 

They are upper mid-market.  Where the room rates are they won’t get any truckers in their hotel.  They build all their hotels in areas where they are a destination with reservations and they are prebooked.  Trucks don’t fall into that category.

 

No one spoke in favor or opposition to the petition.

 

      c.   Site Plan No. 271 from Greater Midland Community Center, a request for site plan review and approval for a new parking lot, recreation fields, walking paths, playground and a 16,500 square foot curling club at 2001 George Street.

 

            Mr. Mead will be leaving early to meet his new grandchild.

 

      Mr. Poprave gave an overview of the project.  It is located west of Jefferson

Avenue and borders Central Park.  A request was before you at an earlier meeting to vacate George Street.  They also had a zoning map change, which was done recently.  This parcel is now entirely zoned community.  In summary there will be one new curb cut for this development.  The community center has been at this site for over 50 years so they will retain the parking that they have now.  This is a well planned project.  The development will adhere to the landscaping requirements.  There will be an underground detention system.  The parking spaces cannot go right up to the property lines.  Pedestrian and vehicular access has been proposed.  All exterior lighting shall comply with the zoning ordinance.  They want to put all parking close to the building. 

 

An extra contingency item that can be added is that the vacation of George Street be approved by City Council.

 

Mr. Gaynor asked about them building in phases, will that include the parking lot.

 

Mr. Eyre asked about the two existing parking lots behind the community center and who owns them and are they included in the total parking spaces.

 

They are owned by both the City of Midland and the Community Center.  They have a cross access and maintenance agreement with the city so they can use the lot but those lots are not included in the parking count.  They can only count what is on their private property.

 

Mr. Baker stated that the staff was comfortable with the experience with the current facility and that they maintain what parking they have. 

 

Mr. Mead stated that the box style parking spots are different in other parking lots.  What is the minimum distance between aisle width?

 

The aisle width is 22 feet for one-way and 24 feet for two-way.  If the parking is maximized, it is difficult to get through some of the existing parking lots.

 

Chris Tointon, CEO, 2001 George Street, Stacie Tewari from Rowe, can answer questions.

 

Mr. Gaynor asked about parking during construction.

 

One of the things they want to do is have construction time during a slow period.  They can phase it in and close parts of the parking lots at different times.  The curling center has really sparked their new project.  It may be timed right with all of this and not have to close parking.  The curling club operates during the winter time period, October through early March.  They operate evenings and weekends which is opposite the child care hours.  This plan is going to be more than adequate for future needs. 

 

Mr. Senesac asked how many sheets of ice they will have.

 

It will be what they have now, four sheets with a viewing area.

 

Ms. Hanna asked about the homes that face on State Street.

 

They would like somebody to buy them and put them back on the roll.  There are houses on Jefferson and they would love somebody to move them.  The other two would not be able to be saved. 

 

Mr. King asked about the green space and shrubs and if that would block visibility.

 

Mt. Tointon stated they want it to be both save and beautify.  They will be below 30 inches.

 

The parking lot will be screened on the west side.  They currently have a fence and some vegetation.  They want to find as many ways to make sure they are screening houses but have access points.  They are pulling the parking lot back with both the lights and cars from where it is now. 

 

Collins Streets will have a more defined intersection. 

 

Dave Gray, 1618 Jefferson Avenue, he is in support of the changes.  The safety issues being addressed are well needed.  It is going to be something new and fresh in that area.  They are losing some dilapidated houses that were in the neighborhood.  They will start seeing some neighborhood pride.  There are lots of young children so it will be nice to see a public area for them to play in both at the basketball court and the playground.  They do look directly at the south end of the parking lot.  He can vouch that the parking lot is never full.  There are never cars parked at the south end of the parking lot. 

 

No one spoke in opposition to the petition.

a.    Site Plan No. 264 from MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland, a request for site plan review and approval for a 67,000 square foot addition to the Harlow Building at 4005 Orchard Drive.

 

Mr. Poprave gave an overview for this middle meeting.  It is located north of West Sugnet and east of Orchard Drive.  It is located in the community zone.  They have submitted the rezoning petition.  They have a more detailed plan.  They have increased the number of fire hydrants.  The canopy has a height of 14 feet for dial a ride buses to fit under.  They show the flow of traffic at the round about at West Sugnet.  They will have a 67,000 square foot addition.  They are going to construct an additional 220 parking spaces.  There has been some understanding with the engineering department on the storm water issues. 

 

Mr. Eyre asked about the parking. Have they met the parking requirement? 

 

They put an extra row of parking in and reconfigured the lot.

 

Tom Lind, 2608 Greenwich Circle, Midland, MI, Vice President from MidMichigan Medical Center.  They are expanding the operating rooms and a new lobby area.  He addressed the contingency items.       

 

      1.   A detailed landscaping plan is submitted which adheres to Article 6 of the Zoning Ordinance.

      2.   All parking lot landscaping adheres to Article 6 of the Zoning Ordinance.

      3.   Stormwater runoff and detention systems are designed and constructed in accordance with Engineering Department requirements.

      4.   The traffic circle adjacent to West Sugnet is re-designed as a roundabout to accommodate traffic volumes.

      5.   Lots “F” and “J” are re-configured to accommodate large fire apparatus.

      6.   Additional fire hydrants are place on the site per Fire Department requirements.

      7.   All FDC locations are shown on an amended site plan.

      8.   41 additional parking spaces are shown on an amended site plan

      9.   Exterior lighting shall comply with Section 3.12 of the Zoning Ordinance.

      10. The drop-off canopy adjacent to the main entrance maintains at least 14 feet of under canopy clearance.

      11. All roof and ground mounted mechanical equipment shall be screened in accordance with Section 6.02(E)2 of the Zoning Ordinance.

      12. All parking spaces are delineated with “box” style striping per Section 5.01(D)3 of the Zoning Ordinance.

      13. All signage shall adhere to Article 8 of the Zoning Ordinance.

 

            Mr. Senesac asked which of the 13 are ready to be marked off. 

 

            They are all done.  They either made a commitment or completed them.  All of these are addressed and have the confidence from both you and the city council.  1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10 would come off.  The rest of them are standard.  They could add the rezoning if they would like.

 

            Mr. Senesac asked if the rezoning did not go through what would they do.

 

            They would have to find another lot.  It would be further from the front door and employees might have to walk further.  They have the land to meet it.  They banked the land for future parking requirements.

 

            Ms. Svenson asked about the rezoning and why didn’t they put it in at the same time.

 

            At the time, they didn’t know that part of the property was zoned residential.  It was an administrative over site. 

 

            Mr. Eyre asked about the mechanical yard. 

 

            It is going to be full brick to match the building.

 

            Ms. Hanna motioned to extend the meeting since they are close to the time deadline seconded by Kozakiewicz.  All approved. 

 

            Kathleen Kemp, 1800 N Stark Road, in favor of the hospital expansion.  She is retired from the medical field.  She is concerned about the many infections.  She was instructed to speak privately with Mr. Lind about operational issues.

 

            No one spoke in favor or in opposition to this petition.

 

b.    Site Plan No. 266 from Wilcox Professional Services, on behalf of The Dow Chemical Company, a request for site plan review and approval for a 103 stall parking lot addition at 3200 James Savage Road.

 

Diane Brown would like to be excused from the voting due to a conflict of interest.  It was moved by Senesac and seconded by Kozakiewicz.  The motion was approved.

 

Mr. Baker gave a brief geographic overview.  The property is currently zoned IA .  There has been no additional communications since the last meeting.  There are seven contingencies.

 

Mr. Eyre asked if any neighbors to the south corresponded. 

 

Ms. Hanna asked why they would have to put in a sidewalk if it is industrial.  Is that typical?

 

This being not platted and a major road and sidewalk to the north they are requiring them to make the connection to the existing sidewalk. 

 

It was moved by Hanna and seconded by Kozakiewicz to recommend City Council approval of Site Plan No. 266 based upon the following contingencies:

 

1.   The stormwater detention system is designed and constructed in accordance with the City of Midland Engineering Department specifications.

2.   All landscaping shall comply with Article 6 of the Zoning Ordinance.

c    Site Plan No. 262 from Three Rivers Corporation on behalf of the City of Midland Currie Golf Course, a request for site plan review and approval for a 11,070 square foot proposed golf cart building at 1116 Currie Parkway.

 

      Dan Kozakiewicz would like to be excused from the voting due to conflict of interest.  Hanna moved and Senesac seconded.  All approved.

 

      Mr. Poprave presented the petition and it is located north of Currie Parkway and east of the Currie West Club House.  It adheres to all the setbacks.  It is surrounding by dense vegetation.  The parking is already built as part of the Currie West Club House.  Storm water detention is not needed since it is located in the flood plain. 

 

      Keith Wirth, Three Rivers Corporation, 3069 Vantage Point, Midland, noted that the building elevation is six feet over existing grade due to the flood plain.  They are waiting for the DEQ approval.  They have to have a fire alarm in the building.  They will mimic the character of the Currie Club House.  They will store over 80 golf carts, grounds keeping equipment and a locker room.

 

      Mr. Eyre thinks it is good project.

 

It was moved by Eyre and seconded by Brown to recommend City Council approval of Site Plan No. 262 based upon the following contingencies:

 

1.         All exterior lighting shall adhere to Section 3.12 of the Zoning Ordinance.

2.         All parking shall be delineated by “box” style striping per Section 5.01(D)3 of the Zoning Ordinance.

The motion was approved 7-0.

 

c.    Draft Master Plan and Future Land Use Map – provide a comprehensive long-range guide to managing growth, development and redevelopment in the community for a period of up to 20 years.

 

Robert Cramer, LSL Planning, it has been two years leading up to tonight’s meeting with research, public involvement and the work of the Planning Commission to get there.  Potential changes that will be edited by the Planning Commission approval.  Things that will get changed before it goes out to City Council for public hearing. 

 

Mr. Kozakiewicz suggested they remove the wetlands and flood plain designation from the future land use.  Mr. Gaynor agrees.  Ms. Hanna believes they should stay and it helps to know what area is buildable.

 

Mr. Eyre thinks there should be some type of reference.  Ms. Brown agrees with that approach. 

 

Kozakiewicz made a motion and Brown seconded to move to not include the designation for sensitive natural areas on the future land use map but have some reference to it in the master plan.  Brown seconded.  The motion passed by a vote 6 to 1.

 

Not having been involved in the process, Mr. King was abstaining from all Master Plan votes.

 

They agree on the Ingersoll Township change.

 

            A motion was made by Hanna and seconded by Gaynor to approve the Ingersoll Township changes.  The motion passed by a vote 7 to 0.

 

            Non-motorized pathways. 

 

            A motion was made by Kozakiewicz and seconded by Hanna that they revise #5 to simply state that they would recommend that the master plan incorporate the language that non-motorized pathways be evaluated into the new transportation plan.  The motion passed by a vote 7 to 0.

 

            Parks Implementation

 

            A motion was made by Gaynor and seconded by Hanna that the parks implementation section should include that the city should investigate parks or park lands in the north west side of the city.  The motion passed by a vote 7 to 0.

NAY:               None

The motion was approved 7-0.

 

The Principal Shopping district boundary was brought up to include some and exclude others.  They should make a revision to the map of the businesses that want to be included into the district.

 

It was moved by Hanna and seconded by Brown to make the revision to the principal shopping district.  The motion passed by a vote of 7 to 0.

 

Kathleen Kemp, 1800 N Stark Road, are they going to have some response to her father’s letter on his 20 acre parcel.  She then proceeded to read a letter and show a map of where the 20 acre parcel is located.  She would like the parcel to be residential on the master plan. 

 

Mr. Kozakiewicz asked if Lincoln Township formally responded and they did and was favorably. 

 

Mr. Gaynor spoke that they don’t have to be part of the City of Midland or change their land or how they develop it.  The future land use map is what they would like to see there but they don’t have to do that.  That particular area of town will see a higher usage because it is close to US-10.  

 

Ms. Hanna would like to applaud Ms. Kemp for speaking on her property rights.

 

It was moved by Gaynor and seconded by Eyre for a new pathways map.

 

I hereby move by Senesac and seconded by Hanna that the City of Midland Planning Commission adopts the City of Midland Master Plan, in accordance with Section 6 of Michigan Public Act 285 of 1931, as amended, with the following changes:
