Two preliminary site plans were from <br />United Properties and the third plan is the adopted Langton Lake Park Master Plan. <br /> <br />Current access to the existing park parking lot is through the industrial warehouse parking lot on the <br />south of the proposed development and existing park land. <br /> <br />Staff also indicated that park related concerns included, but are certainly not limited to: <br /> <br />The extreme sensitivity of any park land exchange! <br /> <br />Meeting the goals of the adopted park master plan and ensuring future public access to the park. <br /> <br />The importance of consideration of the existing adopted park master plan <br /> <br />Trail connections to the park? <br /> <br />Mr. Hall of United Properties presented the details of their two proposals and relayed information from recent <br />neighborhood meetings; <br /> <br />First proposal does not change access to the park and the development is contained within the <br />property lines of current ownership (this plan is preferred by United Properties). <br /> <br />Second proposal involves a parkland exchange and includes a new road to access the existing park <br />parking lot (will discuss further if City is interested). <br /> <br />A neighborhood meeting was held by United Properties for those that live on Brenner Avenue just <br />bordering the site and Mr. Hall stated that neighbor comments included the dislike for access to the <br />development and park off Brenner Ave and concerns about the impact a four story building might <br />have on the homes and yards to the north of the development. <br /> <br />Commission asked a number of questions related to the presented proposals. The primary discussions centered <br />on ownership and who would be responsible for maintenance of the road as well as the importance of <br />consideration of the adopted Langton Lake Master Plan. <br /> <br />Commissioner Willmus was not able to be at the meeting but shared his thoughts in writing.
