The property is generally located north of Main Street and west of Angel Parkway. The property is zoned Planned Development PD No. 42 Shopping Center SC. The properties to the north, west, and east are zoned Planned Development PD No. 42 Shopping Center SC. The property to the south (across Main Street) is zoned Planned Development PD No. 44 Shopping Center SC.
A Site Plan for approximately 11.148± acres is currently being reviewed on the hard corner (north of Main Street and west of Angel Parkway) for a retail/restaurant development. All proposed uses are permitted by right with the exception of the fueling station. The applicant is requesting a Specific Use Permit (SUP) for the Fueling Station use. The Allen Land Development Code (ALDC) requires a Fueling Station use to receive a Specific Use Permit (SUP) to locate within a Shopping Center SC zoning district. The SUP for the fueling station use is supported as an accessory use associated with the Market/Grocery use. The fueling station is to be developed in conjunction with or after the Market/Grocery use is developed. This condition is included in the SUP ordinance.
The SUP Site Plan shows the approximately 0.999± acre property for a Fueling Station use. There are six (6) double sided fuel pumps on the property as well an approximately 3,000 square foot proposed retail building.
There is one (1) primary access point into the site through a proposed fire lane which connects to Main Street.
Parking and open space exceed ALDC standards. A 5' sidewalk will be constructed along Main Street.
The proposed retail building is one (1) story with a maximum building height of 19'. Primary building materials include brick, stone, metal, and glass. The fueling station canopy is 21' feet in height and is constructed of stone and metal with a mansard roof.
The Specific Use Permit request has been reviewed by the Technical Review Committee and meets the standards of the Allen Land Development Code.
On January 3, 2017, the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the request.
This item was continued at the January 24, 2017, City Council meeting to allow time to work on modifications to the language related to requirements concerning the ownership and operational relationship between the main grocery anchor and the fueling station. The new language was not confirmed prior to the agenda posting, so the original Ordinance is attached for City Council's consideration.
