Estimates are approximate. Analysis of Proposed vs. Current Zoning 1.The development plan make a greater effort to avoid grading into the landmark land forms and steep grades {over 10%) including the hill promontory points. When addressing the landmark landform, structural retention should be avoided and grade transition accomplished with stable slopes where possible. 2.The development should more clearly identify that portion of the "Cross Timbers Community" being demolished/ preserved and identify clear areas of preservation ... a Cross Timbers preservation plan. 3.The developer commit to elimination of small lot pads {even though these are smaller lots) by requiring that the grade transitions between lots be accommodated within the architectural envelope. This also complies with our Building Quality Manual and accomplishes the "intent" of large lot zoning categories. 4.The developer illustrate how any portion of the City Open Space Plan is being accommodated. Certainly any future site plan adva1nced by any other developer would be subject to the same requirement. This is a quality of life, and therefore economic development, issue.
