Hughes <br /> <br /> <br />MINUTES <br />Planning Commission Meeting <br />July 15, 2014 – 7:00 p.m. <br /> <br /> <br />Chair Tyler Marion called the July 15, 2014, Tybee Island Planning Commission meeting to order. Commissioners present <br />were Marianne Bramble, David McNaughton, John Major, Tyler Marion, Demery Bishop, and Julie Livingston. <br /> <br />Mr. Marion – The first order of business is the minutes of the June 17, 2014, meeting. Do I have any discussion? [There <br />was none.] Do I have a motion? [Mr. Major made a motion to approve as written; Mr. Bishop seconded.] All those in <br />favor please signify. [The vote was unanimous.] <br /> <br />Mr. Marion – Do we have any recusals or disclosures? [There were none.] <br /> <br />Text Amendment – Section 4-050(E) and (F) and (O) – District Use Regulations <br />Ms. Otto – This is related to hosting special events. It is specific to zoning districts C-1, C-2, and the South End overlay. <br />In your packet were three different versions for consideration to deal with those that choose to host special events. <br />None of this would change what has occurred in the past; this would be moving forward. Version 1 is proposing that in <br />C-1 and C-2 if it is a hotel, motel, a bed and breakfast inn, which is the commercial bed and breakfasts, or a restaurant <br />hosting special events, they would need Site Plan Approval. If it is anything else besides those, such as a residential bed <br />and breakfast, it would require both Special Review and Site Plan Approval. For the South End overlay it proposes a new <br />concept. It takes the South End overlay and divides it into a 200-foot outer ring and what is inside that ring it treats <br />those separately. For the ones that are not in the outer ring it would be Site Plan Approval only; that would be the ones <br />on the interior of the South End overlay. For those in the exterior, or within the 200-foot ring, they would need to have <br />Special Review and Site Plan Approval. Version 2 is very similar to what I already described, Site Plan Approval for those <br />hotel, motel, bed and breakfast inns, and restaurants and Special Review and Site Plan Approval for all the others. When <br />it came to the overlay, instead of using the 200-foot outer ring or the remainder within the ring, it instead goes to the <br />zoning district which would mean you would see what is above [referring to PowerPoint]. There are areas within the <br />South End overlay that are predominately C-1 so you would go to C-1 and see what was required depending upon the <br />use that is considered. For Version 3, it requires all hosting of any special event by any type of business to go through <br />Special Review and Site Plan Approval in the C-1 and C-2 districts. For the South End overlay it proposes either Site Plan <br />Approval or Special Review and Site Plan Approval as determined by the zoning district of the location. There is nothing <br />currently like this. This is a new topic to discuss and I’m open to any questions you may have. <br /> <br />Mr. Major – For the record and anybody who may be interested, if I’m the petitioner and I come before Council, what <br />impact will it have if it is Site Plan only in both terms of cost and process? If it is Site Plan only, Special Review only, or <br />Site Plan Approval and Special Review, what is the difference? <br /> <br />Ms. Otto – For the cost question, if you are having Site Plan only, it is a $500 process. If you have had Site Plan Approval <br />within the prior three years, that fee is reduced to $250 and it is considered an amendment to a previously approved <br />Site Plan. For Special Review the fee is $500. For those that need both Site Plan and Special Review the total would be <br />
