Town Council Item # 4 – Reports estlake Town Council TYPE OF ACTION Workshop - Report Westlake Town Council Meeting Monday, April 30, 2018 TOPIC: Report of Quarterly Financial Dashboard and Analysis including Capital Projects for the Quarter ended March 31, 2018 STAFF CONTACT: Debbie Piper, Finance Director Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Fiscal Responsibility Fiscal Stewardship Exemplary Service & Governance - We set the standard by delivering unparalleled municipal and educational services at the lowest cost. Increase Transparency, Accessibility & Communications Strategic Initiative Maintain Receipt of Various Financial Awards for both Municipal and Academic Services - Transparency Time Line - Start Date: October 1, 2017 Completion Date: March 31, 2018 Funding Amount: N/A Status - N/A Source - N/A EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) The 2nd quarter “Dashboard” reports and “Analysis” for the FY 2017-2018 are attached. Our goal is to have a concise and easy to understand document regarding the financials of our three main (3) operating funds: General Fund, Visitors Association Fund and the Utility Fund. The remaining funds are a function of transfers in, related expenditures and transfers out; therefore, we have not prepared quarterly reports for these funds. We have also included an additional report related to the capital projects year-to-date expenditures and an update of the projects. As can be seen by the financial Dashboard, there has been a decrease in revenue within the General Fund of $55,846. This is primarily attributed to the reduction in anticipated building permits and fees. A detail of each sub-division is in the explanation portion of this report. An increase in Operations and Maintenance is due to an increase in the Keller Police Contract for the prior year. The contract was incorrectly billed. We have reviewed the Keller Police Operating budget for FY 16-17 and agree with the addition of $25,532 as the correct percentage of Westlake’s share. Even though this is for the prior year, the amount is so small we will not have a prior period adjustment. Transfers Out have decreased $469,137 due to the 2017 Certificates of Obligation replacing the 2007 General Obligation Refunding Bonds. The 2007 GO payments were still reflected in the budget. With these amendments, the ending fund balance should increase by $365,141 giving us an increase of 25 operating days. The Utility Fund revenues have been increased by $501,345 primarily due to an increase in water and sewer revenues based on the most recent water study completed during the current year. Operations and Maintenance expense has increased by $418,710 due to historic billing inaccuracies which have prevented staff from properly forecasting sanitary sewer flows. Additionally, all waste water treatment expenses were transferred from the Southlake line item to TRA line item in anticipation of the metering station coming on line in Q1. Please note the ending fund balance of $144,416 is due to the payment to Fort Worth for the Town’s portion of the waterline. These funds should be reimbursed based on council action on the proposed Reimbursement Resolution. Total reimbursed funds should total $1,130,000 which calculates to an additional 91 days. The Visitors Association Fund appears to be tracking with budgeted numbers. The majority of our revenue for this fund arrives in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Staff will continue to monitor all funds and report any anomalies to the Council. Please note a change in the year-to-date budget calculations. On each individual fund’s financial report, you may see an “M” or “%”, beside several revenue line items. The “M” indicates the calculation for “Estimated Allocation of the YTD Budget” is based on the actual number of months of revenue received vs. the number of months into the fiscal year (6 months). This is a more apples to apples comparison and my hope is that this new snapshot avoids confusion with our comparisons of the accrued revenue accounts, i.e. sales tax revenue, franchise fees, hotel occupancy taxes, etc. The “%” symbol, which was used previously with the Utility Fund only, represents the use of the percentage of actual dollars received in the prior year during the same period compared to budgeted dollars in the current year. The “Estimated Allocation of the YTD Budget” column is based on this percentage rather than the number of months to-date in the current fiscal year since they are not received equally throughout the year. Examples of this would be property tax revenues which are primarily received in the first two quarters of the fiscal year vs. water revenues, of which a major portion is received in the spring and summer (hotter, dryer months). These quarterly reports contain a “dashboard” display complete with major revenue and expenditure categories. Because we are further into the year and aware of various line items that will need adjustments, we have added an “Estimated” column which includes these changes. The “Dashboard Variance” amounts are based on the “Estimated” vs. the “Actual” columns. The color green obviously means that we are good in those specific line items when comparing “YTD Budget” to “YTD Actuals”. Any concerns between these two areas show up as yellow (cautionary) or red (critical). A summary is presented at the bottom of each funds’ financial page indicating the net revenues over (under) expenditures along with the projected ending fund balances for the PY Actuals, Adopted Budget, Estimated Budget, Allocation of YTD Estimated Budget, as well as the YTD Actuals. The operating days remaining in Unrestricted Fund Balance have been calculated using total operating expenditures. Our Fiscal and Budgetary Policies state that we will strive to maintain 90 days of operations. Note the “Analysis” is color coded and corresponds to the specific line-item on the “Dashboard” report. All “cautionary” and “critical” items are detailed with explanations of the variances. I have explained several of the line-items that were greater (green) in revenue than we anticipated, helping you understand what specifically happened with that revenue line-item. I have also included explanations for several expenditures that were considerably under budget so you may see why these funds have not been expended. In addition to the above, each section of the “Analysis” contains the “Estimated Budget” and “Change in Budget” totals with an explanation, if needed. To help in reading this report, each explanation ties directly back to the “Dashboard” report. RECOMMENDATION The Council review the current quarterly financial reports.

The developer’s own homebuilder took initiative in beginning to build homes in Entrada as part of Block E (residential) near the canal and Block J & I soon followed. With the developer finishing public improvements in Entrada, we have seen a lot more interest in Entrada with more residential projects expected to initiate this fiscal year. Although Entrada has garnered more attention, we expect to see less lots developed than what was budgeted (50 lots). We expect the number of lots to be developed reaching closer to 40 by the end of the fiscal year. • Quail Hollow - $103,032 YTD budget - $96,660 YTD Actual  Budgeted to start 10 homes for the year  $80,000 WA fee for Phase 3  2 new home starts to-date oo Quail Hollow is still off to a slower start than expected.

Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: June 19, 2017 Completion Date: On-going Funding Amount: TBD Status - Funded Source - Multiple Sources - see comments below EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) On February 27, 2017, after a lengthy process that included opportunity for public participation, the Town Council reviewed and adopted a new Public Art Plan. Staff then began working with the Town’s public art consultant to formulate next steps for implementing the Town’s Public Art Plan. This included creating a competition to ultimately obtain a public art piece which would be the first in the Town’s collection under this Public Art Program. To accomplish this first public art competition, it was proposed to the Council for it to appoint a Public Art Competition Advisory Page 2 of 2 Committee. This Committee was appointed, and their charge delineated, by the Town Council in a resolution on June 19, 2017. Since that the time the Westlake Public Art Competition Committee (WPACC) has been meeting and identifying the location of the Town’s first public art piece under the Town’s new Public Art Plan. Further, the WPACC has also been formulating the process for identifying artists, soliciting their qualifications, and selecting finalists for design of this first public art piece under the Town’s new Public Art Plan. The Committee is also heavily involved in identifying funding for this effort. At their January 29, 2018 workshop, the Council was given a presentation by Committee representatives to update the Town Council on their activities to date, as well as review the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) document, and RFQ process with the Council. The Council expressed general consensus and agreement on the proposed RFQ process to date, however, it expressed its sense that funding for the artist honorarium(s) should come from donations, i.e. the same funding for the art piece selected via this competition process. Since then, the Committee has continued its work to refine the RFQ document, the RFQ process, and obtain donated funds for honorarium(s). The Committee has developed a flow chart to outline the process that would be used to obtain this public art piece. RECOMMENDATION Hear an update from the Committee on their work since their last report to Council on January 29th and provide the Committee with feedback regarding the proposed process for obtaining this public art piece per the flow chart attached to this agenda memorandum.

STAFF CONTACT: Jarrod Greenwood, Public Works Director/Assistant to the Town Manager Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Planned / Responsible Development People, Facilities, & Technology High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Improve Technology, Facilities & Equipment Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: November 17, 2014 Completion Date: November 30, 2018 Funding Amount: $2,100,000.00 Status - Funded Source - Bond Issuance EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) As you may recall, Council approved an amendment to the contract at the November 17, 2014 regular meeting for Westlake’s proportionate cost for the installation of a new 48” water line, the first phase of the two-phase project. The Town’s proportionate cost for phase 1 was $2,826,315.02 paid out over 3 years. In an effort to provide Council and staff with information to make a strategic decision of whether or not to participate in the construction of Phase 2, staff retained Halff Associates to conduct a Page 2 of 2 feasibility analysis (attached) to examine Westlake’s options and the costs associated with each one. The report recommended participating in the Fort Worth water line project from the identified options below: 1. Participate in the Fort Worth water line project at a cost of $3,910,842. 2. Construct a 30” water line in 2026 without any intergovernmental cooperation at a cost of $11,275,000 (FTV $). 3. Construct a 16” water line in 2026 without any intergovernmental cooperation at a cost of $7,425,000 (FTV $). The proposed Request for Funding from the Texas Water Development Board for Council consideration is for the second phase of the two-phase project and follows the same proportional responsibility as phase 1. Town Council approved Resolution 17-33, an amendment to the Fort Worth Wholesale Contract, that provided for construction of the Fort Worth 30” water line at the August 27, 2017 Town Council Regular Meeting. The City of Fort Worth wanted Westlake and Trophy Club MUD to prepay for this project. Unfortunately, the Utility Fund Working Capital would be depleted if Westlake were to make the full prepayment. Fort Worth agreed to split Westlake’s payment up into two payments; the first payment of $899,000 has been paid and the second payment is to be paid when we obtain the Texas Water Development Board funding in FY 18/19. Based on the current Phase 2 project costs from The City of Fort Worth, Westlake’s total proportional financial obligation is now expected to be $1,816,350.04, leaving a remaining balance of $899,000. As discussed during budget presentations, staff has been working with the Texas Water Development Board to obtain funding through the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT); a low interest loan through the state that has an opportunity for forgiveness of approximately 30% of the interest. The proposed Resolution and attachment (TWDB-0201A) are satisfying the Texas Water Development Board’s procedural requirements for financing approval. Staff will include the engineering fees of $226,532.00 paid in 2016, the first payment mentioned above, and staff/consulting fees in the funding request. The total amount of funds requested in the TWDB application is not to exceed $2,100,000.00. TWBD anticipates funds to be available in November 2018.

SWIFT Application Invitation Letter April 5, 2018 Page 2 In accordance with Texas Water Code § 16.0121, water systems are required to provide regular water loss audits to the TWDB, which are used to calculate a Water Loss Threshold for each system. Then next annual water loss audits are due to the TWDB on May 1, 2018, and these will be used as part of the SWIFT application evaluation. Please visit our Water Loss Audit Resources web page for more information. Current records indicate that Westlake’s water loss exceeds its threshold. Please include in your application, information regarding measures that Westlake is already or will be taking to mitigate the water loss issues. When applying for TWDB financial assistance, systems whose loss exceeds their threshold must apply for funds to address the water loss issue in addition to their proposed project or request a waiver. Please direct any questions or concerns regarding the application, commitment process, and closing processes to Luis Farias, Manager, Regional Project Implementation Team 3. Please contact Luis to discuss your project in greater detail and to schedule a pre-application meeting if you have not already done so.

ATTEST: _____________________________ Laura Wheat, Mayor _____________________________ Kelly Edwards, Town Secretary Page 1 of 2 estlake Town Council TYPE OF ACTION Regular Meeting - Consent Westlake Town Council Meeting Monday, April 30, 2018 TOPIC: Consider an Ordinance amending CH 74, Solid Waste, of the Town’s Code of Ordinances by deleting the current CH 74 and replacing it with CH 74 Solid Waste and providing: definitions; refuse collection service; disposal or removal of solid waste; trash cans and receptacles; prohibiting sanitary landfills; prohibiting nuisances; requirements for residential collection; franchise or license requirement; fee; commercial solid waste requirements. STAFF CONTACT: Jarrod Greenwood, Public Works Director/Assistant to the Town Manager Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Planned / Responsible Development Municipal & Academic Operations High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: April 30, 2018 Completion Date: April 30, 2018 Revenue Amount: N/A Status - N/A Source - Utility Fund EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) Over the past few years, the Town of Westlake like many of our neighboring communities, has seen a need to update the Solid Waste Ordinance to reflect changing environmental conditions and industry standards, as well as responding to increased development activities and the need to establish appropriate construction requirements to protect the environment and neighboring property owners. Page 2 of 2 As staff has presented to Council in previous meetings, municipalities are in the solid waste business, therefore the Town owns the solid waste stream and has a responsibility to ensure its proper disposal. In Westlake, much like most communities in North Central Texas, we outsource this service delivery to the private sector and “franchise” a provider. Our current provider, Republic, provides residential and commercial solid waste and recycling services, which includes commercial and residential construction within the Town. The Town’s current requirement that our franchised provider perform all construction debris removal is in keeping with neighboring and comparable communities: Section 16-35 of Southlake’s Code of Ordinances; Section 7-410 of Keller’s Code of Ordinances; Section 13 of Trophy Club’s Code of Ordinances; and Section 13 of Highland Park’s Code of Ordinances. This operational regulatory oversight exists because municipalities are charged by the state with the responsibility of the public safety and welfare of its citizens. The proposed Solid Waste Ordinance will provide for General definition and reference housekeeping and an opportunity for managed competition. A standard 12% License Fee is included in the proposed Ordinance. Additionally, the proposed Ordinance will address a category of waste haulers that the Town is not currently regulating - Liquid Waste Haulers. The liquid waste haulers section is an important issue that must be addressed, especially as we grow and get more restaurants and corporate campuses. The Town is dependent on voluntary compliance and we do not track anything. This is not acceptable to the EPA or TCEQ as discussed during the Town’s recent EPA inspection on April 12th. The liquid waste haulers permit covers grease traps, a topic that has become a priority for EPA and TCEQ. Staff has started working on a Fats-Oils-Grease (FOG) Ordinance that will need to be adopted in the coming months. This FOG Ord is dependent on the liquid waste haulers section of the proposed Solid Waste Ord. (Article III). The proposed ordinance does not address blowing trash, as it is a code compliance enforced under Article IV. - CLEANLINESS AND SANITATION OF PREMISES Sec. 46-114, Accumulations on lots or parcels of land prohibited.

The Town’s proportionate cost for phase 1 was $2,826,315.02 paid out over 3 years. Page 2 of 2 In an effort to provide Council and staff with information to make a strategic decision of whether or not to participate in the construction of Phase 2, staff retained Halff Associates to conduct a feasibility analysis (attached) to examine Westlake’s options and the costs associated with each one. The report recommended participating in the Fort Worth water line project from the identified options below: 1. Participate in the Fort Worth water line project at a cost of $3,910,842. 2. Construct a 30” water line in 2026 without any intergovernmental cooperation at a cost of $11,275,000 (FTV $). 3. Construct a 16” water line in 2026 without any intergovernmental cooperation at a cost of $7,425,000 (FTV $). The proposed Request for Funding from the Texas Water Development Board for Council consideration is for the second phase of the two-phase project and follows the same proportional responsibility as phase 1. Town Council approved Resolution 17-33, an amendment to the Fort Worth Wholesale Contract, that provided for construction of the Fort Worth 30” water line at the August 27, 2017 Town Council Regular Meeting. The City of Fort Worth wanted Westlake and Trophy Club MUD to prepay for this project. Unfortunately, the Utility Fund Working Capital would be depleted if Westlake were to make the full prepayment. Fort Worth agreed to split Westlake’s payment up into two payments; the first payment of $899,000 has been paid and the second payment is to be paid when we obtain the Texas Water Development Board funding in FY 18/19. Based on the current Phase 2 project costs from The City of Fort Worth, Westlake’s total proportional financial obligation is now expected to be $1,816,350.04, leaving a remaining balance of $899,000. As discussed during budget presentations, staff has been working with the Texas Water Development Board to obtain funding through the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT); a low interest loan through the state that has an opportunity for forgiveness of approximately 30% of the interest. The proposed Resolution and attachment (TWDB-0201A) are satisfying the Texas Water Development Board’s procedural requirements for financing approval. Staff will include the engineering fees of $226,532.00 paid in 2016, the first payment mentioned above, and staff/consulting fees in the funding request. The total amount of funds requested in the TWDB application is not to exceed $2,100,000.00. TWBD anticipates funds to be available in November 2018.

The first tract is on 11.276 acres and is platted as Shelby Estates Lot 3 and 4A. The second tract of land is on 5.58195 acres and on unplatted property, but falls under the GB Hendricks Survey, Abstract No 680, Tract 4D. The replat under consideration consists of two tracts as well in a slightly different configuration. As shown on the replat, Tract 3A consists of 8.630 acres, while Tract 3B consists of 7.6118 acres. The applicant, Fred Held, owns both tracts land for a total 16.242 acres. The purpose of this replat is to plat the portion of property that is currently unplatted while also subdividing 7.6118 acres of the property owned by Mr. Held. Platting this land allows for the legal sale of the land and allows structures, such as single family residential, to be built upon the property. Page 2 of 3 ZONING On January 6, 1997, the Town Council approved the zoning for this property as R-200 “Country Residential”, which today is known as R5-Country Residential. The country residential district is intended to be composed of single-family dwellings on lots measuring a minimum of five acres. Country residential districts are intended to provide an opportunity for rural character residential development. It may also be used in areas with steep topographic changes in order to minimize alteration of the terrain. The following development standards apply to the R5 zoning district: The plat conforms with all zoning standards on this property.

Per the requirements set out in Section 1.C of Exhibit B “Development Standards” in Ordinance 846 one of the items that must happen prior to development is (i) a replat that vacates the portion of the exiting Lot 1, Block 3, Westlake/Southlake Park Addition Number One that includes the property; and (ii) a replat for the remaining portion of land that includes the exiting commercial building within the existing Westlake/Southlake Park Addition Number One. The purpose of the vacating plat is to void any prior plat or portion of a plat, which essentially paves the way for the future development of the property as approved under Ordinance 846 in the Page 2 of 3 form of a new plat with a new subdivision name, as opposed to a replat under the existing subdivision name. In summary, the 62.531-acre property that is now zoned as PD6 (Knolls at Solana) is being vacated and the 12.679-acre Solana Fitness Club property is being replatted as it is still zoned as PD1-1. Upon the recording this replat/vacating plat, the next steps in order to develop the PD6 zoned area are the submission of a preliminary site evaluation, civil construction plans, a development agreement and a final plat.

STAFF CONTACT: Ron Ruthven, Planning and Development Director Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Mission: Westlake is a unique community blending preservation of our natural environment and viewscapes, while serving our residents and businesess with superior municipal and academic services that are accessible, efficient, cost- effective, & transparent. Citizen, Student & Stakeholder High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Update Development Regulations EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) This item involves formal amendments to Ordinance 703, which is the original PD zoning ordinance that approved the Entrada development. As part of the joint workshop with the Town Council and the Planning and Zoning Commission held on March 6, 2018 to discuss the Entrada development, discussion took place regarding the timing of residential permitting relative to commercial permitting as required by Ordinance 703. More specifically, concerns were raised by the Entrada developer regarding the timing of residential permitting requirements contained in the Entrada zoning regulations. Additionally, staff mentioned the possibility of amending the site plan approval requirements in Entrada such that residential site plans and small commercial buildings may only require staff approval. Page 2 of 5 At the March 26, 2018 Town Council workshop, staff presented draft regulations to the Council that addresses the discussion points above. Based on discussion at the March 26, 2018 Town Council workshop, staff is bringing forward the formal amendment proposal. Residential to Non-residential Development Ratios Section 3 – “Residential to Non-residential Development Ratios” of Ordinance 703 provides restrictions on the pace of residential use development in Entrada. The purpose of this section is to require the developer to perform their obligation to construct a minimum amount of commercial uses before being allowed to construct additional residential uses, thereby creating a true mixed- use development. Section 3 of Ordinance 703 reads as follows: Section 3. 1: Pace of Residential Use Development within PD1 -2: “3. 1. 1 First Year of Active Development: Developer is entitled to ten (10) residential units initially. After the initial ten (10) units, Developer is entitled to units eleven (11) through (30) after 45,000 non-residential air conditioned square footage is permitted. "First year of active development" is defined as beginning on the date of the issuance of the first vertical building permit for PD1 Planning Area 2 (PD1-2). 3. 1. 2 Second year of active development shall not exceed an additional sixty (60) units. Third year of active development shall not exceed and additional eighty (80) residential units. Year four of active development and subsequent will be based upon the 1500: 1 ratio. From Residential Unit 31 forward, Developer must demonstrate to the Westlake Building Official that the 45,000 air-conditioned square feet of non-residential building space (as set out in 3. 1. 1) is substantially completed, and that for Residential Unit 31 forward, Developer must also demonstrate to the Westlake Building Official that a ratio of 1, 500 sq. ft. of nonresidential use building space has been permitted for each additional Residential Unit permitted. 3. 1. 3 Developer is to maintain a database illustrating conformance to this requirement to the Westlake Building Official and include an up-to-date report with each new Residential Unit building permit application. Non-residential use buildings must be substantially outwardly completed within six -months of being included in the 1500: 1 ratio, which is 1500 square feet of non-residential to each Residential Unit calculations.” As of the date of this memo, only 25,838 square feet of commercial space is completed, leaving only 30 total residential units, out of 322 allowed by the zoning, available for construction. Page 3 of 5 The developer, motivated to spend the available EB5 financing for many of the commercial buildings in the development, has expressed an interest in amending Section 3 to allow more flexibility in permitting additional residential units (above the current cap of 30 units) while allowing the developer additional time to address the logistics of the getting the commercial buildings constructed. Given these concerns, staff proposes the following changes to subsection 3.1.2 as presented to the Town Council (shown as markup): 3. 1. 2 Second year of active development shall not exceed an additional sixty (60) units. Third year of active development shall not exceed and additional eighty (80) residential units. Year four of active development and subsequent will be based upon the 1500: 1 ratio. From Residential Unit 31 forward, Developer must demonstrate to the Westlake Building Official that the 45,000 air- conditioned square feet of non-residential building space (as set out in 3. 1. 1) is substantially completed such that the building foundations are completed, inspected and approved, and that for Residential Unit 31 forward, Developer must also demonstrate to the Westlake Building Official that a ratio of 1, 500 sq. ft. of nonresidential use building space has been permitted for each additional Residential Unit permitted. This would allow the permitting of additional homes once the foundation is poured and approved for the retail corner building. Site Plan Approval Procedures Section 5.3 of Ordinance 703 describes the site plan approval process. Staff proposes to remove the legislative approval requirement for single family residential blocks and for small commercial building footprints under 5,000 square feet in size. The small commercial buildings would only include small pad sites such those located around the existing CVS Pharmacy and Primrose Academy buildings. This proposal is based on the following assumptions: • The Entrada design guidelines clearly state the design expectations for the development in a comprehensive manner; • Any significant deviation from the design guidelines would require approval of a waiver from the Town Council; • The amount of site plans that have received approval to date in the development provide a useful template for staff to use for comparison purposes when reviewing a new site plan application that meets the above criteria. Furthermore, the proposed policy change would allow for an accelerated plan review time period wherein the developer could move at a relatively quicker pace while also reducing staff time processing site plans through the current legislative review process. Large commercial buildings and condominium uses would not be included under the proposed policy change and would still require Town Council approval upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Given the points mentioned above, staff proposes the following changes to Section 5.3 as follows (shown as markup): Page 4 of 5 “Section 5.3 PD Site Plans A PD site plan is mandatory and is the final step of the PD development process. The purposes of a PD site plan are to ensure that the development of individual building lots, parcels, or tracts within the PD district are consistent with the approved concept plan and development plan, if any, and to ensure that the standards applicable within the PD district are met for each such lot, parcel or tract. A PD site plan shall continue to be valid for a period of four years after it is approved by the Commission; however, such period may be extended by the Council a PD site plan shall terminate at the end of such four-year period ( or extended period if approved by the council) unless, within such period, a preliminary plat has been filed with the Town for all of the land covered by such PD site plan. If a PD site plan terminates, development of the land covered by the terminated plan cannot occur until a new PD site plan has been approved for the land as provided by this article. Variances to the regulations contained in this PD ordinance, may be approved by the Town Council via a Site Plan approval if the Site Plan approval process adheres to the same notification and public hearing process that a zoning change is required to adhere to by State law. Site Approval Exceptions: Legislative approval of a site plan shall not be required for the following site plans: a. Single-family residential homes; b. Small non-residential buildings where the building footprint does not exceed 5,000 square feet of gross floor area. Site plans that qualify for the exceptions noted above shall only require administrative approval by the Town Manager or designee. In reviewing said site plans, the Town Manager or designee may, in any instance, defer the consideration and approval of said site plan to the Town Council upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Likewise, in the event that a site plan is denied by the Town Manager or designee, then the applicant may appeal said decision to the Town Council upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Providing for the exception provision above, all site plans plan submissions shall otherwise meet the requirements of this ordinance and other pertinent Town regulations. In the event that an ordinance provision contained in Ordinance 703, or another regulation adopted by the Town Council, conflicts this exemption provision, this exemption provision shall supersede said conflicting provision.” PUBLIC NOTIFICATION Public hearing notices were sent to all property owners within PD1-2 and within a minimum 200 feet of PD1-2. Additionally, notice of the public hearing was published in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. To date no correspondence has been received. Page 5 of 5 PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of this item (5-0) on April 16, 2018. SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATION The proposed amendments were drafted based on the feedback obtained from the Town Council, the developer and the Commission members in attendance at the joint workshop held on March 6, 2018 and the subsequent Town Council workshop held on March 26, 2018. Staff agrees that the amendments will provide additional opportunities to increase the pace of construction within the development while maintaining the Town’s expectations of design and construction quality. Therefore, staff recommends approval of the amendments as drafted in this report.

PASSED AND APPROVED ON THIS 30th DAY OF APRIL 2018. __________________________________ ATTEST: Laura Wheat, Mayor ____________________________ __________________________________ Kelly Edwards, Town Secretary Thomas E. Brymer, Town Manager APPROVED AS TO FORM: ____________________________ L. Stanton Lowry, Town Attorney Page 1 of 5 ESTLAKE TOWN COUNCIL TYPE OF ACTION Regular Meeting - Action Item Monday, April 30, 2018 TOPIC: Conduct a public hearing and consideration of an Ordinance approving a Site Plan for an approximately 2.070-acre portion of Planned Development District 1, Planning Area 2 (PD1-2), established by Ordinance 703 for the property generally located south of State Highway 114, east of Davis Boulevard, and north of Solana Boulevard, commonly known as Westlake Entrada. The area shown on this PD Site Plan is commonly referred to as the Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall to be located at the end of Tarragona Drive. STAFF CONTACT: Nick Ford, Development Coordinator Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Planned / Responsible Development Citizen, Student & Stakeholder High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: April 30, 2018 Completion Date: April 30, 2018 Funding Amount: N/A Status - N/A Source - N/A EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) On April 15, 2013, the Town Council approved a mixed-use development known as Entrada through Ordinance 703. Subsequently, the Town Council on October 28, 2013 by Ordinance 720 approved a Development Plan for Entrada. Page 2 of 5 The subject PD Site Plan is generally located at the end of Tarragona Drive. This site plan contains two separate buildings that total approximately 10,000 square feet. However, both structures are intended to interact with each other. The reception hall is about 7,150 square feet while the chapel is about 2,200 square feet and is able to seat about 139 people. The parking for this site is to be shared with the gas pad-parking garage located west of the amphitheater. Currently, PD Site Plan approval is required for every lot, parcel, and tract in the Entrada development. The PD Site Plan approval process gives the Planning and Zoning Commission, as well as the Town Council, the ability to approve or deny a plan based on the quantitative (development standards, densities, building sizes, etc.) and qualitative (design guidelines and architectural standards) criteria specified in the PD zoning ordinances relative to this property. PD 1-2 zoning regulations give the Developer a great deal of latitude with regard to lot layout and design and encourages the Developer to be creative and build a unique development. It also gives the Town opportunities to verify that the proposed development will reflect what was presented by the Developer during the zoning change application process and agreed to by all when the zoning (Ordinance 703) and subsequent Development Plan (Ordinance 720) were originally approved. ZONING The proposed site plan complies with the Entrada zoning requirements approved by Ordinance 703. Likewise, the proposed site plan complies with the Entrada Design Guidelines approved by Ordinance 760. The Town’s architectural consultant has reviewed and approved the proposed design. Development Plan As the Council may recall, a Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall were shown on the development plan that would engage the edge of the canal in the development. As a condition of approval, the development plan stated that all structures adjacent to the water, including those involving fee simple ownership, must be handled dimensionally to maximize an aesthetically pleasing adjacency and interaction with the water. Town staff believes that this requirement has been met. Page 3 of 5 PARKING AND TRAFFIC CIRCULATION Parking and circulation issues in Entrada have been formally identified in the recent parking report conducted by Freese and Nichols. Although, no recommendations were provided for the Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall site in the report, Town Staff nonetheless has identified minor concerns with parking and circulation of traffic within this portion of Entrada. One issue with this site, and the sites around it, involves the lack of parking in close proximity and the lack of loading/unloading zones. Although the applicant has provided a loading/unloading zone parallel to Tarragona, it does not provide adequate access due to the dead end street (as explained later in this memo). All parking supply for this site and surrounding sites is fulfilled by the parking garage east of the gas well pad site. As this site is going to be used for event functions such as weddings and other party functions this may become an issue. For large functions such as the aforementioned, there would need to be large amounts of equipment and deliveries that would need access from a short distance. The nearest parking and unloading/loading zone is the aforementioned garage, which is approximately 500 feet away. Another item to note, is that, generally, this area (Restaurant Row, Amphitheater, etc.) does not contain any type of loading/unloading zone. Another issue is that the street that the Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall front (Tarragona Drive) contains a dead end street that has no turnaround (as depicted in the figure below). This creates an issue for emergency access vehicles and other vehicles that may get trapped in this area without an adequate way for vehicles to turnaround. Given the termination of Tarragona, until another connection to Tarragona is provided to the east, this portion of the road should not be utilized except for in cases emergency access. PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of this item (5-0) on April 16, 2018 subject to the staff recommendations contained herein. Page 4 of 5 RECOMMENDATION Given the loading/unloading and access issues noted above, staff recommends approval of this site plan subject to the following conditions: 1. An adequate location for a loading/unloading zone that is outside of the fire lane must be depicted that services the Block C area (Restaurant Row/Amphitheater/Chapel & Reception Hall/Future Site Plans). The loading/unloading zone must be at least 40 feet in length and serve at least two cars at a time. An adequate location will be determined and approved by the Town Manger or designee(s) before the issuance of building permits for this site. 2. Temporary, removable bollards shall be placed at the roundabout of Tarragona where the eastern stub intersects to prevent motor vehicle traffic from entering a dead end street that lacks an adequate vehicular turnaround area. This portion of Tarragona Drive will be limited to pedestrian traffic except in such cases where emergency vehicles need access to structures located on this portion of Tarragona Drive. If a future connection occurs to an existing street (Cortes Drive) or proposed street (114 service road), this condition may then be reevaluated. 3. Temporary, removable bollards shall be placed at the intersection of Aragon Drive and Tarragona Drive to prevent motor vehicle traffic at the time of special events for the Amphitheater. Tarragona Drive will be limited to pedestrian traffic except in such cases where emergency vehicles need access to structures located on Tarragona Drive. In cases where an event is not occurring, Tarragona Drive will remain open to vehicular traffic. If a connection is able to be made to an existing street (Cortes Drive) or proposed street (114 service road), this condition will be reevaluated. 4. The applicant shall submit an outdoor lighting plan with a photometric study before the issuance of building permits for this site. All lighting fixtures must comport to the Entrada Design Guidelines and all lighting fixtures must be less than 3000K and be approved by the Town Manger or his/her designee(s) before the issuance of building permits. 5. The proposed dumpster location is an unsatisfactory position due to the dead end street (Tarragona Drive). The applicant shall propose a new location for the dumpster and the location must be approved by the Town Manager or designee(s) before the issuance of building permits for this site. 6. A Certificate of Occupancy shall not be issued for any building shown on this PD Site Plan prior to the availability of adequate parking. 7. All structures depicted on this Site Plan (Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall) must be assembled at the same time. A Certificate of Occupancy will not be issued for any one building unless all other buildings are able to receive a Certificate of Occupancy in unison.

Action Item Monday, April 30, 2018 TOPIC: Conduct a public hearing and consideration of an Ordinance approving a site plan a site plan for an approximately 5.806-acre portion of Planned Development District 1, Planning Area 2 (PD1-2), established by Ordinance 703 for the property generally located south of State Highway 114, east of Davis Boulevard, and north of Solana Boulevard, commonly known as Westlake Entrada. The area shown on this PD Site Plan is commonly referred to as the Plaza Mayor to be located near Cortes Drive, Costa Brava, and Girona Drive. STAFF CONTACT: Ron Ruthven, Planning and Development Director Robin McCaffrey, Town Planning/Architectural Consultant Nick Ford, Development Coordinator Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Planned / Responsible Development Citizen, Student & Stakeholder High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: April 30, 2018 Completion Date: April 30, 2018 Funding Amount: N/A Status - N/A Source - N/A EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) Page 2 of 20 In April 2013, the Town Council approved the 85-acre mixed-use development known as Entrada through Ordinance 703. Subsequently, the Town Council on October 28, 2013 by Ordinance 720 approved a Development Plan for Entrada. The development plan included a large central plaza with two (2) hotels, two (2) parking garages, a fountain, public art and gathering areas, and one (1) unlabeled building were shown. The subject PD Site Plan is generally located at between Cortes Drive, Costa Brava, and Girona Drive, also known as Block K, Lots 1-4. The Plaza Mayor is an approximately 5.806-acre portion of the Entrada development. As one of the last major non-residential site plans, the Plaza Mayor provides an aesthetic anchor and central gathering place that will ensure that the development becomes a regional destination. The Plaza Mayor will consist of two major hotel chains, an AC Marriot Hotel and an LQ Hotel, two parking garages, a condominium building, and a ~1.5-acre plaza. Page 3 of 20 Below is a table that shows the square footage of each building, building height, approximate number of units per building, and the average square foot per room for each building: Building Square Feet Height Units / Spaces Avg Unit Size AC Hotel 73,195 sf 5 story / 63 ft 132 rooms ~400 sf LQ Hotel 63,932 sf 4 story / 51 ft 111 rooms ~400 sf Condominium 246,552 sf 6 story / 75 ft 126 units ~1,600 sf Hotel Garage 98,524 sf 4 story / 40 ft 320 spaces - Condo Garage 121,108 sf 2 story / 20 ft 260 spaces - Currently, PD Site Plan approval is required for every lot, parcel, and tract in the Entrada development. The PD Site Plan approval process gives the Planning and Zoning Commission, as well as the Town Council, the ability to approve or deny a plan based on the quantitative (development standards, densities, building sizes, etc.) and qualitative (design guidelines and architectural standards) criteria specified in the PD zoning ordinances relative to this property. PD 1-2 zoning regulations give the Developer a great deal of latitude with regard to lot layout and design and encourages the Developer to be creative and build a unique development. It also gives the Town opportunities to verify that the proposed development will reflect what was presented by the Developer during the zoning change application process and agreed to by all when the zoning (Ordinance 703) and subsequent Development Plan (Ordinance 720) were originally approved. ZONING As a condition for approval of the Entrada Development, the Parkland Dedication Fees were waived due to the open space amenities provided by the development, including water features and a large central plaza. The Plaza Mayor Entrada, per Ordinance 703, is one of the key development features and is to be the heart and soul of Entrada. As Ordinance 703 states: “A key feature of any European [village] is the Plaza, where many important public gatherings, speeches and rites of passage of the Village Residents occur. Within Westlake Entrada, this specific portion of the development is designed to imitate the Piazza San Marco and the Plaza Mayor Salamanca, in shape, size and pedestrian scale. Exterior elevations of this conglomerate of structure will imitate the two Plazas and several other architecturally significant Spanish Building including the Monestario el Escorial and Las Huelgas. Page 4 of 20 Several key Village components will be provided within this Plaza including some but maybe not all of following: Residential, office, Medical office, Hotel, Retail, Restaurant, Independent Living and Assisted Living. Artisan Suites on a temporary and/or permanent basis may also be included in the Plaza portion of the development. All parking required for the residential components of the plaza to be contained in an attached structured parking component, with the first floor of this parking structure to be accessible to the public to service the retail and other non-residential uses that may be utilized on the first floor of the plaza” Plaza Mayor de Salamanca (Spain) Development Plan As a condition of the development plan, the following must be accomplished with regard to the plaza:  The location of the plaza in Phase 1 in relationship to the water feature must allow for a high degree of public access to the water feature from this plaza. This should be done in a manner that forces any and all vehicular access into the plaza space via a separate conduit. This can be done in European village fashion with bollards defining the vehicular path across the plaza ground plane, while separating cars from pedestrians This plaza should be extended to or as near as possible to the water feature. Page 5 of 20 Plaza Mayor de Salamanca As mentioned above, and per Ordinance 703, the Plaza Mayor of Entrada is to closely imitate the Piazza San Marco and the Plaza Mayor de Salamanca in shape, size and pedestrian scale. The developer has largely focused on emulating the Plaza Mayor de Salamanca more so than the Piazza San Marco due to contradictory styles of architecture. It is important to note the significance of the Plaza Mayor in Salamanca. With construction completed in 1755, the Plaza Mayor Salamanca has become the center of Salamanca for over 250 years. The plaza is lined with an enormous amount of small shops, restaurants, nightlife, and the city hall as well. Throughout any given day, the Plaza Mayor de Salamanca is busy with residents and tourists. It is the intent of the Plaza Mayor in Entrada to recreate this important piece of history that will draw people from all over the DFW metroplex to experience the beautiful architecture of Entrada. Land Uses As it currently stands, the plaza is providing hotels, condominiums, and parking structures. However, it has not been indicated that there will be retail portions associated with the plaza. Ordinance 703 calls out several key components to the plaza such as retail, restaurants, offices, etc. in order to emulate what a European plaza should look and feel like. The Plaza Mayor de Salamanca, for instance, is lined with artisan shops, ice cream shops, small restaurants, pharmacies, bars and other types of interactivity. In order to create more energy within the plaza staff recommends the following with regards to land uses in the Plaza Mayor of Entrada:  The hotel buildings, as identified on the site plan, shall each contain a minimum of 10% of enclosed ground floor retail/restaurant space that services and provides direct access to the plaza. This is approximately 1,000sf-2,000sf of space in both hotels that could be utilized as small café areas for the public.  The condominium building shall have a minimum of 20% of the enclosed ground floor space dedicated to retail/restaurant space that services and provides direct access to the plaza. Page 6 of 20 ARCHITECTURE The Plaza Mayor plans submitted by the applicant are the result of an in-depth process wherein the applicant’s architect and the Town collaborated on the evolution of an architectural design which, in the opinion of the Town staff, embodies the intent and requirements of the Entrada PD. The language of the Entrada PD is more specific regarding the Plaza Mayor than it is regarding other “European Village” attributes of the development. The PD references specific European Plazas and European Buildings that the space of Plaza Mayor and the architecture defining it should “imitate”. More specifically, the Entrada PD states: “Within Westlake Entrada, this specific portion of the development is designed to imitate the Plaza San Marco and the Plaza Salamanca in shape, size, and pedestrian scale. Exterior elevations of this conglomerate of structure will imitate the two plazas and several other architecturally significant Spanish buildings including the Monestario el Escorial and Las Hueglass.” The collaborative process that forged the current submittal went through several stages, with each stage contributing to the recommended proposal. Those stages were: Stage 1 – Summary of the nature of the Plaza Space identified in the PD and what attributes of “imitation” would include: In mid-summer of 2017, the Town staff communicated a brief history of Plaza San Marco, which identified the key spatial attributes resulting from its organic evolution over time (a key quality of European Plazas which were mostly the result of a spatial negotiation over a period of growth). The Town Staff also communicated the key attributes of Plaza Salamanca (more regular in shape) and advanced the notion that the Plaza Mayor should emulate the attributes of one or the other, suggesting that emulating both would be contradictory. The applicant agreed to use Plaza Salamanca as the archetype. Stage 2 – First Response to Plaza and Building Design by 5G Architects (Nov. 2017): After a shift in the lead architect for this portion of the project, the Town Staff were presented with the initial design proposals, presented by 5G Architects. Initially the designs submitted, replicated the general “compositional discipline” of the more formal, Baroque, structures defining Plaza Salamanca, but were lacking the clear elements of style associated with Spanish Baroque Architecture. Below is an example of the comments on early submissions, which call for: 1. More complexity in form 2. More complexity in silhouette 3. More identifiable classicism in articulation 4. More decorative use of articulations Page 7 of 20 5. More opulence overall, suggestive of the royal/ecclesiastical use of structures normally dominating a Spanish Plaza Stage 3 – Detailed Explorations of Structures (Jan. 2018): Upon receipt of comments on early conceptual renderings, 5G Architects provided an excellent design response, achieving much of what the Town had identified. Important features that needed to be further developed in the design included: 1. Breaking the rigid horizontality of the more pragmatic hotel form with decorative complexity that reached beyond the plate line, thereby making a more complex termination against the sky. 2. More complexity in form that fully integrated such things as the porte-cochere and arcade into the architecture of the primary mass. 3. More conspicuous expression of classical influences and more differentiation of the central, organizing mass in each elevation. This gives the plaza a “palace”/ public architecture in line with Plaza Salamanca. Page 8 of 20 Stage 4 – Further Refinement of Architectural Details (Feb. 2018): Further comments were provided on a subsequent submission wherein the Town sought: 1. More decorative detailing 2. Treatment of the arcade in a manner that strengthened its visual connection to the primary mass 3. Integration of certain mechanical issues into the design motif (e.g. vent screens for room HVAC) 4. Strengthening the corner columns to serve as a better termination of form articulation. 5. Further develop the garage elevation so it better integrated with the other structures. 6. Change windows at the ground level to door units to facilitate future Plaza usage. Page 9 of 20 Stage 5 – Final Submittal: 5G Architects did an excellent work in addressing the Town comments in ways that were innovative and remained consistent with the realities of hotel construction. The Town felt that the final submission had satisfied the architectural directions given by the Town. Some questions regarding the Plaza space itself would be addressed in subsequent submission of the Landscape Plan. These include: 1. Integration of Plaza with street 2. Lighting of the plaza space 3. Public Art LANDSCAPING The landscape berm at the entrance to the Plaza Mayor isolates the plaza resulting in discouragement of potential users and forces entry to one side of the plaza. As Ordinance 703 states, the plaza is to make a strong edge with the streetscape and into the edge of the canal. The current proposed landscaping design takes that effect away and encloses the plaza, whereas the original intent of the plaza was to have an open feel for pedestrian traffic. Page 10 of 20 Staff recommends the following concerning landscaping:  Landscaping at the entrance to the plaza be replaced with stairs that, due to the grade difference, follows the cross slope (more steps at one end / fewer steps at the other), thereby making the whole edge open and accessible while improving the connection to the street and allowing a more manageable flow of pedestrian traffic that comes from the pedestrian bridge or other portions of Entrada. Page 11 of 20  The pavestone material shall be cut stone to closely follow what can be found in the Plaza Mayor Salamanca. The color and pattern of the stone must be approved by the Town Manager or designee(s) and must adhere to the Entrada Design Guidelines. PUBLIC ART From Entrada’s creation, the development was anticipated to have public art locations and public gathering areas throughout the development with the plaza being one of those locations. Creating a space for public art is important for the Plaza Mayor in Entrada as it will generate a focal point for the development that will naturally draw people to the plaza. Ultimately, it will be the architecture of the plaza will draw people, however, the public art will tell people how to use and interact with the 1.5-acre plaza. Ordinances Several ordinances have identified possible public art locations throughout the development, as well as identifying the criteria of said public art in relation to its surroundings.  Ordinance 720 – Development Plan Page 12 of 20 The approved Development Plan showed a location for public art, identified by a fountain to be placed in the center of the plaza.  Ordinance 759 – Master Landscaping, Lighting, and Paving Plan Ordinance 759 identifies public art and public gathering locations on the Master Conceptual Landscape Plan. Within this plan, two (2) areas for Public Art/Public Gathering Areas are identified. The plan is conceptual, and merely provided a basis for discussion on potential locations.  Ordinance 760 – Design Guidelines The Entrada Design Guidelines set out the criteria of public art within Entrada. The guidelines speak to key components of public art such as the appropriateness of the public art to its site and originality/authenticity of the piece itself.  Ordinance 776 – SUP for Amphitheater Although this ordinance was for the Specific Use Permit on the Amphitheater, it included several public art locations (including the plaza) as a supplement to the ordinance. Page 13 of 20 Page 14 of 20 Proposed Locations Staff recommends the following with regards to Public Art in the plaza:  The presented Public Art locations are too small in scale and do not have enough presence to influence activities in the plaza. Provide more massing to the public art locations identified. Public Art in the plaza should be more visible and have more spatial power to influence the space in the plaza.  The developer shall provide a detailed Public Art plan for the Plaza Mayor to be submitted to the Town and approved by the Town Manger designee(s) before an issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for any one building in the plaza. A public art competition may be presented in this plan. LIGHTING A photometric study was prepared for the Plaza Mayor in Entrada, which included four (4) lighting fixtures at that square the interior of the plaza. It also included the type of lighting, the amount of lighting that is emitted measured in foot-candles, and rendered nighttime simulation of Page 15 of 20 the four lights. Staff was provided with two options, which are both acceptable and closely resemble the lighting fixtures that can be found in the Plaza Mayor Salamanca. However, staff recommends the following concerning lighting in the Plaza Mayor:  The applicant must submit an outdoor lighting plan with photometric study before the issuance of building permits for the Plaza Mayor. The photometric study and lighting plan must include the following details: o Lighting fixtures and emittance from building façade o Lighting fixtures and emittance from the plaza interior o Lighting fixtures and emittance that can be found in archways o Lumens for each lighting fixture o Color temperature for each lighting fixture o Type of fixture (LPS, HPS, LED, Halogen, Fluorescent, etc…) o Rendering of the lighting at night  All Plaza Mayor color temperature for lighting must not exceed 3000 Kelvins. This provides the orange lighting that can be found in the Plaza Mayor Salamanca at night. Page 16 of 20  Lighting fixtures must be submitted to the Town approved by the Town Manger or designee(s) before issuance of a building permit for any one building the Plaza Mayor. Lighting fixtures that are located on the plaza surface shall include electrical outlets for future use. PARKING AND TRAFFIC CIRCULATION Hotels and condominiums require one parking space per unit. The Plaza Mayor of Entrada is currently providing the following amount of parking spaces: Table 1 - Parking Provided Building Parking Required Parking Provided Deficit/Surplus LQ Hotel 111 - -111 AC Hotel 132 - -132 Hotel Garage - 320 +320 Condominium 287 260 -27 Total 530 spaces 580 spaces +50 spaces The Plaza Mayor was one of the areas reviewed for the parking study conducted by Freese and Nichols. It is important to note that the parking study took into consideration retail/restaurant options of about 25,000 square feet near and on the plaza. With that much floor area, an additional 150-300 spaces would need to be provided in the area. Ways to address this may include an additional garage (indicated by the development plan on Block L to create shared parking with the Plaza) The following recommendations were included by Freese and Nichols for the Plaza Mayor area of Entrada:  As there are only an additional 50 spaces in the plaza area, overflow of parking from special events needs to be addressed. It is recommended that a shared parking agreement with adjacent properties come into effect to handle the congestion the parking structures may receive. Staff recommends the following with respect to parking and traffic circulation:  A shared parking agreement with adjacent properties must be in effect before the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for anyone building in the Plaza Mayor Page 17 of 20 SIGNAGE No signage plan was included as part of the site plan package, therefore staff recommends the following:  A signage plan must be submitted to the Town and approved by the Town Manager or his/her designee(s) before the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for any one building in the Plaza Mayor. The sign package must include the following: o Building Façade Signage o Monument Signage o Wayfinding Signage PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of this item (5-0) on April 16, 2018 subject to the staff recommendations contained herein.

STAFF CONTACT: Ron Ruthven, Planning and Development Director Nick Ford, Development Coordinator Strategic Alignment Vision, Value, Mission Perspective Strategic Theme & Results Outcome Objective Planned / Responsible Development Citizen, Student & Stakeholder High Quality Planning, Design & Development - We are a desirable well planned, high-quality community that is distinguished by exemplary design standards. Preserve Desirability & Quality of Life Strategic Initiative Outside the Scope of Identified Strategic Initiatives Time Line - Start Date: April 30, 2018 Completion Date: April 30, 2018 Funding Amount: N/A Status - N/A Source - N/A EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) In April 2013, the Town Council approved the 85-acre mixed-use development known as Entrada through Ordinance 703. Subsequently, the Town Council on October 28, 2013 by Ordinance 720 approved a Development Plan for Entrada. A portion of this development plan included a large central plaza with two (2) hotels, two (2) parking garages, a fountain, public art and gathering areas, and one (1) unlabeled building were shown. Page 2 of 6 The subject Specific Use Permit is generally located at between Cortes Drive, Costa Brava, and Girona Drive, also known as Block K, Lots 1-4 and is to recommend approval of the condominium units in Entrada. Per Ordinance 703, condominiums are a permitted use allowed by right in Entrada; however, condominiums must be approved by a Specific Use Permit, which allows discretion of the Town Council to determine size, number, and configuration of units considered for approval. PD 1-2 zoning regulations give the Developer a great deal of latitude with regard to lot layout and design and encourages the Developer to be creative and build a unique development. CONDOMINIUM ZONING Condominiums are authorized by Ordinance 703 only through the approval of a Specific Use Permit (SUP). Ordinance 703 defines a condominium as follows: “Condominium (residential) means a form of real property ownership that combines separate ownership of individual apartments or units with common ownership of other elements.” Condominiums are regulated in Texas under the Uniform Condominium Act of 1993, codified in the Texas Property Code. Condominiums are defined under the act as “a form of real property with portions of the real property designated for separate ownership or occupancy, and the Page 3 of 6 remainder of the real property designated for common ownership or occupancy solely by the owners of those portions”. It is important to note that, similar to any other residential structure, cities in Texas cannot regulate whether or not condominiums or owner occupied versus renter occupied. Therefore, a condominium owner may choose to rent their unit to an individual, similar to a single-family homeowner renting their home. CONDOMINIUM REQUEST The applicant has not provided a written narrative that explains the specific request or provides any details. The only information provided by the applicant was that which was included with the Plaza Mayor Site Plan submittal. Therefore, the remainder of this report details the information included in the Plaza Mayor plans with subsequent staff recommendations. The proposed gross floor area of the condominium project is proposed to encompass 246,552 SF and contain up to 126 units. The developer has proposed four different floor plans that range from one bedroom to three bedroom units and range in square footage from 800 square feet to almost 3,000 square feet. The following table summarizes the mix of units proposed: Floor Plan Bed Bath SF Unit Count % of mix A1 1 1 800 12 10% B1 2 2.5 1,350 59 49% B2 3 3.5 1,350 25 21% C1 2 2.5 2,975 24 20% Total 2 2.375 1,619 120 100% The number of units proposed on the floor plan breakdown shown above only adds up 120 units. However, the applicant has conveyed that they would like to proceed with a maximum of 126 units as indicated on the proposed site plan. The applicant has also conveyed that it is unlikely that they will use these exact floor plans in every situation. The floor plans attached are purely for speculative units and provide a baseline for condominium sizes as the developer has expressed intent to build custom condominium unit designs for buyers if they so choose. With approximately 40,000 square feet per floor in the condominium building, it is possible to have some buyers that would prefer more square footage than what the attached floor plans contain. PUBLIC NOTIFICATION Public hearing notices were sent to all property owners within PD1-2 and within a minimum 200 feet of PD1-2. Additionally, notice of the public hearing was published in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. To date no correspondence has been received. PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of this item (5-0) on April 16, 2018 subject to the staff recommendations contained herein. Page 4 of 6 STAFF RECOMMENDATION AND SUMMARY As noted above, little in the way of details were provided by the applicant relative to this request. Notwithstanding any desire to table the request on the part of the Council in order to allow the applicant additional time to provide a more thorough submittal, staff has crafted the recommendations below as potential SUP ordinance conditions that seek to ensure that all expectations of Town are met relative to the request. Therefore, staff recommends approval of the SUP subject to the following conditions: 1. The maximum number of units in the condominium for the Plaza Mayor is to be one- hundred twenty-six (126) units. 2. The Condominium as depicted on the PD Site Plan of the Entrada Plaza Mayor shall have a minimum of 20% ground floor retail and restaurant area that has direct access to and from the plaza. Placement and size of this area within the condominium will be adequately determined before the issuance of building permits. 3. At a minimum, the developer shall provide the following amenities for resident use to be contained within the condominium building: a. Swimming Pool b. Fitness Center c. Sauna Room d. Wine Lounge e. Business Center f. Concierge Service g. Media Room h. Wi-Fi Access Minor modifications to any of the above amenities may be approved by the Town Manager or designee. 4. An interior design package must be provided to the Town before the issuance of building permits. The package should include a detailed list of the amenities noted above and a description of fixtures, furnishings and materials. 5. A building signage plan must be submitted to the Town and approved by the Town Manager or his/her designee(s) before the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for any one building in the Entrada Plaza Mayor. The sign package must include the following: a. Building Façade Signage b. Monument Signage c. Wayfinding Signage 6. Prior to the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the Condominium building, a copy of the official recorded condominium regime document for this condominium that is filed with Tarrant County Clerk shall be provided to the Town Manager or designee and shall be kept in the official Town records. Page 5 of 6 7. This SUP hereby grants the approval for the construction of a multistory, multi-occupancy residential structure that allows for individual ownership of each residential unit under a condominium regime as authorized by the State of Texas. This SUP shall automatically revoke and expire upon the occurrence of any of the following circumstances: (1) The building permit allowing the construction of the condominium building is not issued within one year after the approval date of this ordinance; (2) The use authorized by the SUP is abandoned for more than six consecutive months after either the expiration of the building permit, or, after the issuance of the certificate of occupancy; (3) Any change in use of this building to a use other than that described and authorized by this ordinance; (4) Failure to provide the official recorded copy of the condominium regime as described and conditioned herein.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (INCLUDING APPLICABLE ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY) Paul Pastore, Waterside Land Company, LLC, on behalf of property owner, J. Timothy Brittan, is requesting to develop a 72 lot single family residential subdivision on approximately 37.8 acres located at the southeast corner of Aspen Lane and Pearson Lane. The proposed development would include a mix of attached and detached units. EXISTING CONDITIONS The subject property is currently zoned R5-Country Residential and is currently used as a large single family residential estate with accessory agricultural uses. The subject property contains a mix of unplatted and platted tracts. PROPOSED LAND USE The proposed development would include 24 attached single family units, each on an individual platted lot, and 48 detached single family units creating a total of 72 units on 72 lots. Other proposed uses include an amenity center, guard house and public park to be operated by the homeowner’s association. RESIDENTIAL DESIGN Residential Density. The current R5 zoning on the subject property requires a minimum lot size of five acres yielding a maximum residential density of 0.2 dwelling units per acre (dua). The proposed development would include a minimum lot size of 4,500 square feet with a total proposed maximum density of 1.89 dua. As part of their proposal, the applicant provided an exhibit (attached) that shows how the development would be further broken into density zones based on “net” density patterns in the Vaquero development. “Net” density differs from “gross” density in that net density usually only includes the total units divided by the total residential lot area. Gross density typically includes total units divided by the total area contained within the development including open space. According to the exhibit, the higher net density eastern portion of the development matches a similar net density in Vaquero; specifically the Vaquero villas. Likewise, the lower net density western portion of the development would be similar to a sample net density of a larger lot portion of Vaquero. In analyzing the net density comparisons provided by the applicant comparing Vaquero to the proposed development, the primary difference involves the inclusion of open space in the net density calculations. Whereas Vaquero’s net density only includes the residential lots, which are mostly surrounded by golf course land (which is not included in the density calculation), the proposed development’s net density calculation includes the proposed development open space. Including the open space in the net density calculation has the effect in artificially lowering the net density shown. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: The density exhibit mentioned above and attached should be included in the draft regulations Lot Delivery System. The development will include a “unique lot delivery system” whereby the developer also acts as the sole homebuilder. The applicant states that they, as the developer, “are fully committed to build this project (both land development and home construction) with the terms and conditions of that commitment, addressing unforeseen events, to be worked out in a development agreement with the Town.” STAFF RECOMMENDATION: The developer of this project shall be the builder of all units constructed therein, in compliance with the terms and conditions of such commitment laid out in the Town approved Developer Agreement or unless otherwise requested by the developer and approved by the Town Manager or designee for special conditions. Housing Types and Characteristics. As part of the attached development description, the applicant describes the proposed development as follows: “Spencer Ranch will be a unique “Lifestyle” community that will contain a maximum of 72 high-quality single-family attached and detached homes. The lots may be custom fitted to accommodate homes as they are purchased. Housing type, size, number of floors and the homeowner’s desire for larger or smaller footprints will impact lot size and configuration, and ultimately the total number of lots to be built upon. Larger lots may result in a lower total number of lots in the development.” The following is a breakdown of the proposed housing types in the development. Given the applicant’s desire for lot size flexibility, staff has provided recommendations for minimum lot characteristics where information was not provided by the applicant as noted below. 1.

Regarding roofs, permitted roof materials are proposed to include: 1. High quality clay or concrete tile (with a thickness similar to clay). (Acceptable styles and colors to be detailed in the Spencer Ranch Design Guidelines document) 2. Metal: Traditional standing seam with standing folded and soldered seams. Allowed for porches and architectural features only. (Acceptable styles and colors to be detailed in the Spencer Ranch Design Guidelines document) 3. Flat or low-pitched roofing that is 2:12 pitch or less may be of any code approved material. The applicant proposes that exterior walls be composed of 80 percent masonry as required for all Residential Districts by the Code of Ordinances and have horizontal and vertical articulation or architectural delineation on all elevations. The applicant also states that the Westlake Building Quality Manual will be incorporated into design standards for the development, which have not been submitted to date. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS RELATIVE TO DESIGN: • Homeowner’s Association – The development shall be governed by a Homeowner’s Association (HOA) that will be responsible for common area maintenance, guard house and amenity center maintenance, private street maintenance, front yard maintenance and enforcing the HOA Design Guidelines for the community. The Home Owners Association shall appoint an Architectural Review Committee that must have at least one (1) Texas Licensed Architect with experience in applying Design Guidelines and advising an Architectural Review Committee on matters of design. • Exterior Walls: Exterior walls shall meet the requirements of the Town’s Building Quality Manual as adopted by Resolution 18-02. • Design Guidelines: Prior to the approval of the preliminary site evaluation, the developer shall submit final design guidelines for approval by the Town Council that shall be recorded with the private deed covenants, conditions and restrictions. Said guidelines shall incorporate the Westlake Building Quality Manual. With the exception of any guideline provision addressing a particular architectural style, said design guidelines shall be enforced by Town staff in reviewing building permit applications for compliance with the provisions above. Guideline provisions to be enforced by staff include, but may not be limited to, general building articulation, massing, fenestration, roof slope, construction details, and building materials. • Elevation Samples: All homes constructed in this development shall be generally consistent with the elevation samples provided by the applicant such that the primary articulation elements and general layout of the home on the lot are generally consistent with the elevations. Provided all other requirements are met, significant deviations from these elevations may be approved provided that both the HOA and the Town Manager or designee are in agreement. • All plans submitted for permit within Spenser Ranch shall be prepared by a Texas Licensed Architect and contain sufficient details required to explain the full exterior construction to a competent contractor. • The Town’s Building Quality Manual is hereby made a part of this PD and where a conflict between the requirements of the Building Quality manual and any Design Guidelines adopted by the HOA exists, the Westlake Building Quality Manual shall prevail. Except that modifications to the Building Quality Manual necessary to accommodate features of the approved architectural style can be granted by the Town Manager or designee on a case-by-case basis. PARKS / OPEN SPACE / LANDSCAPING Open Space. The applicant proposes that 13.7 acres, or 36.25%, of the development will be dedicated to open space as follows: • “Approximately 9.6 acres of Private Open Space • Approximately 3.6 acres of Public Open Space • Approximately 0.5 acres of Tree Dedication” Details of the proposed “tree dedication” above were not provided. Private open space would include an “amenity center”, a guard house, and an open air pavilion. Exhibits are attached showing the proposed design of these amenities. The amenity center is proposed to include: • Wine tasting room and storage facility • Exercise facility • Meeting area for approximately 50 people • A “Board Room” facility • Swimming pool/water feature The applicant proposes that the amenity be completed within a timeframe not to exceed the closing of the 18th home in Spencer Ranch. Parkland Dedication. The Code of Ordinances requires that one acre of parkland be dedicated for every 30 residential dwelling units in a new residential development. Based on the proposal of 72 residential units, the applicant is required to provide a minimum of 2.4 acres of parkland. The Concept/Development Plan shows approximately 3.6 acres of proposed public parkland. The applicant proposes to dedicate the the parkland to the Town, which would then be privately maintained by the HOA but will be publicly accessible outside of the perimeter development fence. No details of public park amenities, access or parking were provided by the applicant. Water features. The applicant states that the proposed development will be a “water themed community” with water features, as shown on the concept/development plan, playing a key aesthetic role in the development. Landscaping. The applicant states that: “Spencer Ranch will approach the total landscaping effort as one cohesive and comprehensive unit for the entire tract of land. The landscaping design will incorporate the vision of the entire tract using all aspects of the terrain, thus creating the “natural mosaic” the town prefers. Although installed in individual increments as each home is completed, the Spencer Ranch vision is to create an overlay of a full and comprehensive landscape plan that embodies the entire parcel of land and raises the standards in Westlake and is not prejudice to any one dwelling.” The landscape plan mentioned above, along with any details regarding landscaping, has not been submitted by the applicant. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS RELATIVE TO PARKS, OPEN SPACE AND LANDSCAPING: • Landscaping: Prior to the approval of the preliminary site evaluation, the developer shall submit a master landscape plan for the development prepared by a State of Texas registered landscape architect. Said plan shall be reviewed for final approval by the Town Manager or designee. The plan may be forwarded to the Town Council for final approval at the discretion of the Town Manager. The final approved master landscape plan shall be included with the development agreement. At a minimum the plan shall include the following: 1. The Plan shall substantially comply with the Concept/Development Plan 2. The landscape plan shall reflect developer’s efforts to comply with the “landscape Integrity” objectives of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan and employ predominantly those plant materials (within the planting areas that define the cluster zones and lake edges) that are consistent with restoration of the natural mosaic. 3. Specifics on execution of the landscaping goals provided by the applicant including details of planting locations and types, quantities and schedule; 4. A detailed tree survey as required by the Code of Ordinances; 5. Any replanting requirements as part of required tree mitigation; 6. Specific planting and maintenance responsibilities of the developer versus the homebuilder and the homeowner’s association; 7. Details for guest parking in the development • Tree Preservation – All protected trees shall require mitigation upon damage or removal as required by the Code of Ordinances. Where possible, old growth trees and tree clusters should be preserved as identified in the master landscape plan. • Open Space: A minimum of 13.7 acres (36.25%) of the development shall be reserved as open space. All open space, including public and private, shall be substantially consistent with concept/development plan and shall preserve the existing Stock-pond Rural Landscape. Open space shall be distributed as follows: a. Private Open Space: 10.1 acres minimum b. Public Open Space (Parkland): 3.6 acres minimum • Private open space amenities shall, at a minimum, include the following: 1. Gate house – The gate house shall be constructed and completed by the developer not later than final acceptance of public improvements and prior to the release of residential building permits.

The pavilion design shall be consistent with the provided elevations. • Parkland Dedication – Parkland dedication as proposed by the developer is hereby approved subject to the following conditions: 1. Parkland dedication shall be consistent with the exhibits provided. 2. The gate house, including the property upon which the gate house is located, shall be owned and maintained by the HOA. 3. Maintenance responsibilities for the parkland shall be the responsibility of the developer/HOA. 4. Details of amenities, and final locations of parking and trails shall be approved as part of development agreement between the applicant/developer and the Town. • Water Features – Water features are a key component of the development, making this a “Water Themed” development as called for in the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. Water features shall be constructed by the developer as part of the required public improvements. Said features shall be located and designed as shown on concept/development plan and shall be maintained by the homeowners association. SIDEWALKS AND TRAILS The applicant proposes to install sidewalks along each side of the esplanade water feature, serving pedestrians on both sides of the divided main roadway. The applicant proposes to construct an internal trail system, as shown on the concept/development plan that “will facilitate pedestrian mobility within the community”. The public trail will be constructed along Pearson Lane within the public open space area from Aspen Lane south to the Town border. Although connection to the Vaquero golf club is proposed, staff recommends that an internal trail connection be provided to the Vaquero Club property for future connection. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS: • The internal trail/sidewalk system shall connect to the public trail system at access- controlled locations. The public trail, shall comply with all Town requirements and shall be generally located as shown in concept/development plan and shall be constructed by the developer as part of the required public improvements. • As part of the construction of required public improvements, the developer shall construct a golf cart path that provides for future access to the Vaquero Club Golf Course. FENCING Perimeter Fencing. Perimeter fencing will contain a mix of decorative iron with masonry columns and masonry wall sections per the attached fence samples. Along the southern boundary of the development adjacent to the City of Keller, the applicant proposes to construct a “high quality, vinyl coated heavy galvanized fence and framework with dark wind screen”. Internal lot-to-lot fencing. For lot-to-lot fencing, the applicant proposes the following: Fences on individual lot property lines are generally prohibited, except as approved by the ARB for: a. Dog runs b. Swimming pool safety c. Privacy for internal courtyards Fence Materials: Fences may be any of the following: • “Masonry • Wrought Iron, such fences may be made of solid stock or thick wall tubular steel (sufficient thickness to not burn through when welded but no thinner than 3/32 inch) with any finials or other decorative detailing being made of solid stock and welded to the fence construction or wrought as part of the iron making process. • Wood along property lines that are not in the discouraged yard space. Where wood fences are used, they should be supported by vertical tubular steel supports with at least 3 2x4 stringers supporting a wood fence design with a decorative wood cap detail. The finished face of the wood fence should face to the outside of the lot, if only 1 face is finished. Wood face • Welded tubular agriculture fences not located in a development where such a fence presents a contrast other fences of the development, and hosts and agricultural use or the fence is part of an agricultural theme is allowed. • High Quality, Vinyl coated heavy galvanized fence and framework with dark wind screen (south property only). Gate Materials: a. Wood with frame members measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches thick and infill planks measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches thick. b. Wrought Iron with the frame measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches square with pickets of at least ¾ in. square with welded connections. Such fences may be made of solid stock or thick wall tubular steel (sufficient thickness to not burn through when welded but no thinner than 3/32 inch) with any finials or other decorative detailing being made of solid stock and welded to the fence construction or wrought as part of the iron making process. “ STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS: • The perimeter of the development, not including the publicly owned areas, shall contain decorative iron fencing located in a manner substantially consistent with the Concept Development Plan and which preserves the sense of “open ground plane” as described in the Town’s Comprehensive Plan by the use of decorative iron fencing with masonry columns. Masonry wall sections shall be permitted as depicted in wall exhibits for the purpose of providing aesthetic accents, privacy, and/or shield undesirable vehicle light transmission as determined in the master landscape plan. • In lieu of the above requirement, the southern boundary line of the development, only, may contain a fence composed of vinyl coated heavy galvanized metal and framework with dark wind screen. Said fence shall be fully screened by vegetation that restores the natural mosaic. Final design of this fence and landscaping shall be approved by the Town Manager or designee prior to any construction thereof. • Individual property fences shall be minimalized in order to preserve the open ground plane and permitted for privacy needs, screening, and/or dog runs in ways that are consistent with HOA guidelines which must prevent isolation of the “lot” from the general ground plane. TRAFFIC, STREETS AND ACCESS All internal streets are proposed to be private. A Specific Use Permit for Private Streets, as required for private streets by the Code of Ordinances, is included as part of the rezoning application for the development. Streets are proposed to have “enhances finishes” although no details have been provided on the specific street enhancements. Three primary access points are proposed for the development: an entrance only access point from Pearson Lane and two entrances from Aspen Lane. Street access to Pearson Lane will require formal approval from the City of Keller. The City of Keller has provided preliminary approval for the street connection. Traffic Impact. The applicant provided a traffic impact analysis (TIA) for the development. According to the TIA, the development, consisting of 72 residential units, is projected to generate a total traffic impact of 812 vehicle trips per day. The TIA notes that all intersections affected by the development will continue to operate at a level of service (LOS) C or better, which complies with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan. The following are the final recommendations and conclusions of the TIA: • The proposed development is expected to generate 812 trips on a daily basis with 62 trips during the AM peak hour and 79 trips during the PM peak hour. • Capacity analysis indicates that all the study area intersection approaches operate and will continue to operate at LOS C or better. • Projected traffic volume under the Build-out Year (2020) Total traffic conditions at the site driveways do not warrant right turn or left turn deceleration lanes along person lane at the proposed site Driveway 3 or at Aspen lane as well along Aspen Lane at the proposed site Driveway 1. • At the time of site visit and under existing conditions, adequate sight distance is predicted to be provided for all the site driveways. • All the site driveways are predicted to meet Town’s minimum spacing criteria. • Improve illumination at the intersection to increase nighttime visibility at the intersection of Pearson Lane and Aspen Lane. • East leg of the intersection of Aspen Lane at Pearson Lane should be relocated as far as possible to the north to eliminate the existing offset with Cielo Court. Staff recommends that the final two points above be addressed as a condition on the approval of the development. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS: • Streets – An SUP is hereby granted for all community streets within PD7, which shall be private and constructed to Town standards. Streets shall include enhanced finishes and shall generally match the streetscapes shown in Exhibit XX. Street lighting shall be located at all corners and intersections. Lights shall be low pedestal type fixtures that comply with Town standards and Comprehensive Plan recommendations as well as follow the Town’s low intensity lighting standards. • Access – Street access to the development from Pearson Lane shall require written final approval from the City of Keller. A street light shall be installed by the developer at the intersection of Aspen Lane and Pearson Lane. • Prior to the final acceptance of public improvements, the developer shall install intersection illumination improvements to the intersection of Aspen Lane and Pearson Lane such that the nighttime visibility of the intersection is improved. Said illumination improvements shall be detailed as part of the development agreement and shall require the final approval of the town manager or designee. • As part of the required development agreement, the developer shall provide to the Town a detailed proposal that includes the relocation of the intersection of Aspen Lane at Pearson Lane such that the intersection is moved as far as possible to the north to eliminate the existing offset with Cielo Court in the City of Keller. The proposal shall include preliminary engineering designs, cost estimates and any other plans deemed necessary by the Town Manager or designee. Final construction details may be included in the development agreement. Said agreement shall also detail final funding for the construction of the intersection improvement such that total cost is funded by the developer, unless specified otherwise in the agreement. PUBLIC UTILITIES, DRAINAGE AND GRADING The applicant proposes to provide water to the development from the Town’s water system at two separate locations to create a looped-system. Regarding sewer, the applicant states that “the project engineer has met with town staff and performed the necessary calculations to determine that the public water and sewer systems can accommodate the additional loads anticipated to be generated by the proposed development and there are multiple access points available for connection to the public systems.” Duct bank will be constructed by the developer to the Town’s specifications. Stormwater runoff will utilize “a combination of natural grassed swales, detention ponds, and reflecting pools, connecting to the existing public street storm-water system.” Regarding grading, the applicant states that they are “committed to limitations on grading by allowing only that grading as is necessary to construct streets, infrastructure, development amenities, and individual homes. Waterside will prohibit the creation of lot pads and the use of side lot line retaining walls to create lot pads. Waterside will respect some exceptions where patios, drives, and pools are built that can be viewed as extensions of the home.” STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS: • Public Utilities – Water and sewer service shall be provided by the Town of Westlake to this development. The developer shall, at their cost, construct all necessary water and sewer system improvements per Town standards and shall secure any necessary easements. • Duct Bank - A Duct Bank system shall be installed by the Developer throughout the subdivision as required by Town ordinances. The Duct Bank shall be located within a utility easement, the final details of which shall be determined by the Town Manager or designee. The home builder shall tie into the Duct Bank prior to the Final Inspection for the home. • Stormwater – Stormwater facilities shall be installed by the developer and employ facilities that are recommended by the comprehensive plan. Final location and design of said facilities shall require the final approval of the Town Manager or designee. • Lot Grading – Grading and disturbance of land by the developer shall be restricted to areas necessary to construct streets, public infrastructure, development amenities, and approved water features. The pre-grading of individual residential lots by the developer for the purpose of creating a residential pad is hereby prohibited. PUBLIC ART The applicant states that “Waterside has a strong desire to support the arts in Westlake and will commit the following to a Public Art Competition: • “A competition site of a size to be determined, to place the art at Spencer Ranch in the Public Open Space • A donation by Waterside of an amount to be determined will be outlined in the Economic Development Agreement.” STAFF RECOMMENDATION: As part of the development agreement, the developer agrees to submit a public art plan that shall be approved by the Town Manager or designee and generally conforms to the public art provisions contained in the development description as proposed by the developer. A Town of Westlake entry marker or monument may be included in this plan. COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ANALYSIS The 2015 Forging Westlake Comprehensive Plan - Land Use Plan designates the subject property as PC-B: Pastoral Community/View Corridor Zone. It is important to note that these zones are more character based than use based with the focus the development’s impact on, and symmetry with, the natural fabric of the Town. The character statement for this zone is quoted from the Land Use Plan as follows: “Most of Westlake’s residential development to date can be characterized as large homes situated on large landscaped lots where homes are sited in ways responsive to features of the lot, instead of the street. The overall character is one of a dominant landscape and houses arrayed within it, rather than houses with lots (as is common to most suburban development). Lots are generally an acre or larger with homes set well back from the street. Homes are limited to two stories in these areas and densities are one unit or less per acre. However, smaller lot sizes could be compatible with this character if such lots are clustered and surrounded with open space so that the gross density remains one dwelling unit per acre. The sense of open land is more essential than lot size. The Pastoral Community is predominantly residential with some institutional uses and office campus uses where the FAR is .1:1 or less. Informal lot landscaping replaces rigid street landscaping, giving more visual presence to the natural ground plane than the roadway. Preservation of current home values is key to future residential development.” The Land Use Plan describes the View Corridor Zone as follows: “View Corridor Zone: Lineal views, usually along creekways as they descend in a northerly direction that are attained from the Vista Point Zone. These views host the water bodies and wooded areas that are important visual assets of the Town.” Given the factors of the Pastoral Community/View Corridor Zone as described above, the following is a detailed analysis of each factor and how the development complies: • “Dominant landscape with houses arrayed within, rather than houses with lots” Analysis: The development is generally compliant given the water focus and the cluster zones. • “Lots are generally an acre or larger with homes set well back from the street” Analysis: The development does not comply with this statement as the largest lots will generally be no more than one quarter to one-half acre in size. • “Homes are limited to two stories in these areas and densities are one unit or less per acre.” Analysis: The development does not comply. The attached homes would exceed two stories and the gross density is proposed at 1.89 dwelling units per acre. • “However, smaller lot sizes could be compatible with this character if such lots are clustered and surrounded with open space so that the gross density remains one dwelling unit per acre.” Analysis: While the clustering concept is practiced with this development, and the development is effectively surrounded with open space, the gross density remains over the recommended level. • “The sense of open land is more essential than lot size.” Analysis: The development generally complies with this statement given the way the development is designed to integrate with the natural features of the land and provide cluster zones. • “View Corridor Zone: Lineal views, usually along creekways as they descend in a northerly direction that are attained from the Vista Point Zone. These views host the water bodies and wooded areas that are important visual assets of the Town” Analysis: The development complies with this description. Summary of compliance with the Pastoral Community/View Corridor Zone. Of the factors noted above, the greatest area of non-compliance centers on density. Areas of compliance include design, clustering, open space and landscaping, which has yet to be detailed. Other Comprehensive Plan recommendations. Page 88 of the 2015 Comprehensive Plan provides a Summary of Considerations for Plan Construction as follows: “Westlake was born out of a commitment to landscape integrity, expressed in pastoral development forms where residential and commercial growth can be contextualized without subordinating the natural landscape. The two strongest determinants of landscape form, topography and hydrology should, therefore, be the guiding principles around which land use is defined and regulated. With respect to topography, the intent to minimize grading, which is expressed in the language of the current zoning ordinance, should be promoted in other categories through the Town. Additional measures other than density designations may be more suitable to preservation of hillside and viewshed, however. By creating opportunities for water oriented development, Westlake can give greater definition, with respect to landscape expression, to new commercially oriented development in the Town. Water can also be investigated as a possible transitional tool between uses, tying properties together in a more project oriented context. With these two guiding principles, Westlake will be able to preserve landscape integrity, while operating under the confines of a PD-dominated zoning structure.” Although partially non-compliant with the factors contained in the Pastoral Community/View Corridor Zone, the development nonetheless is consistent with the above focus on landscape integrity wherein measures such as preservation of land forms, view sheds and water features can offset increases in density. Finally, the proposed development supports the demographic and socio-economic objectives of the following statement from page 274 of the Housing Plan in the 2015 Comprehensive Plan: “Meet future housing needs of an aging population: Another market audience largely missing in Westlake is 65+ households seeking simpler, lower maintenance, high-quality product. Product types appealing to this buyer include higher density (townhomes, villas, and garden residences), higher security, and lower maintenance typologies with housing interiors capable of handling art and furnishings of the wealthy older folks. The ideal size of these projects is approximately 15 to= 35 acres, making them ideal for small parcels north of Dove Rd., as transitional between lower density, single-family development and commercial development.” PUBLIC NOTIFICATION A total of four (4) public hearing notices were sent to property owners within a minimum 200 feet of the subject property. A courtesy notice was also sent to the city of Keller. Additionally, notice of the public hearing was published in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. To date staff has received official correspondence from one person in favor of the request, and from one person opposed to the request. SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATION See Town Council options above regarding action on this item. The subject property is currently zoned R5-Country Residential, which prescribes a maximum gross residential density of 0.2 dwelling units per acre. The proposed development yields a gross density that is nearly 10 times higher than that which is allowed under the current zoning. Certainly the proposed single family attached housing provides a story height and housing type that are not characteristic to this portion of Westlake. While the proposed density is much higher than the current zoning and exceeds the density of surrounding developments, the proposed development nonetheless provides an opportunity to execute the vision encapsulated in many factors listed in the Comprehensive Plan as noted above by providing what could effectively be viewed as a western extension, by proxy, of the Vaquero development. Therefore, staff recommends approval of the request but only with the condition that all staff recommendations are included in the PD ordinance including a provision giving the developer the ability to lower the density and change the attached housing on the eastern portion of the development to detached housing. Staff also recognizes that the subject property provides a unique opportunity that is not inherent in other similar properties in the R5 zoning district. These unique factors include: • The property has significant frontage along the Vaquero Club golf course, which provides an opportunity for the development to utilize and enhance the existing open space and amenities that the club and course provide and provide for a western proxy expansion of the development. • The property contains a significant amount of water, which will be enhanced by the development as part of a visible and prominent promenade and will also be utilized to create “cluster” zones. • The property is a gateway property into the Town and will enhance the view corridor as one drives into Westlake from Keller. The high quality of construction and value that the development will create minimize value encroachment that the comp plan addresses in the Housing Plan. • Aspen Lane has only one point of access, which is from Pearson Lane. Therefore, Aspen Lane could not support additional lots that would access streets whose sole access is to Aspen Lane as there would not be enough points of ingress and egress to address traffic and public safety concerns. Given these factors, the development proposal for the subject property is unique, as is the subject property itself. Therefore, approval of the request would not necessarily set a precedent for similar rezonings in other portions of the R5 district as those properties would not meet al of the factors noted above.

The property extends eastward to the Vaquero golf course property and southward to the border of the city of Keller. Further, this document will clearly state how the single entity developer/homebuilder is committed to and will comply with the various visions, aspects and intentions of the Westlake Comprehensive Plan. Development Description Page 2 of 26 SPENCER RANCH GENERAL INFORMATION UNIQUE DELIVERY SYSTEM Single Builder/Developer: Waterside Properties, LLC is a 30+ year Homebuilding company and will serve as the sole homebuilder in Spencer Ranch. The Waterside Family of Companies was founded March 19, 1984 in the State of Texas. The Company has been building homes for over 30 years. The development company was founded in 2017 to establish unique, high-value communities with a commitment to environmental ethics and social design that ultimately improve the inhabitants’ well-being. The Waterside Family of Companies has common ownership in the State of Texas. Waterside Land Co, LLC (www.watersidecompanies.com) Waterside Land Co, LLC is a boutique development arm of the Waterside family of companies and will serve as the sole land developer of Spencer Ranch. Waterside Properties, LLC (www.watersidecompanies.com) Waterside has created a “UNIQUE DELIVERY SYSTEM” SINGLE BUILDER/DEVELOPER PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION: In order for Westlake to sustain resistance to assimilation by the encroaching fabric of surrounding communities, Westlake must develop a place for a project delivery system that is not the same as those surrounding communities. At present, the dominant delivery system is land development driven, wherein there is a lot developer who sells buildable lots to a Home Builder who then brings in their own design services and their own resident client. As a result, there is a ”sameness” to the products created which are often hard to distinguish from the surrounding submarkets. Westlake needs a Developer/Builder who will not only develop the land…but…also, build the house on that land and thereby be in a position to create a truly unusual, lifestyle product that has exceptional quality. With “skin in the game” from the outset, there is an unusual motivation for quality as the ultimate return is from the home. The builder’s vision is the same as the developer’s vision and the ability to bring land development and home construction together in a distinguished way is more possible. Therefore, Waterside assures the Town that Waterside is fully committed to build this project (both land development and home construction) with the terms and conditions of that commitment, addressing unforeseen events, to be worked out in a development agreement with the Town. Development Description Page 3 of 26 UNIQUE COMMUNITY Waterside’s creation of Spencer Ranch is an extraordinarily unique high-quality community committed to the various visions, aspects and intentions of the Westlake Comprehensive Plan as outlined below: Spencer Ranch Community: Our goal is to bring a sense of place to new communities through a well thought-out “reverse design process.” Hearkening back to centuries-old traditions of living on the land, we carefully study the terrain and craft landscape-appropriate homes that speak to the surrounding property. We follow a nonconformist method of designing and virtually building homes on the land before plotting streets, or placing the elements – lakes, creeks and pastoral swaths – ahead of development. This mindful approach interweaves the home design with the fabric of the land, blending indoors with outdoors for a more organic approach. The result is beautifully harmonious places in which to live and raise families. Spencer Ranch is a “Water Themed” community (as expressed in the Town’s Comp Plan page 83-88) with a maximum of 72 houses built in multiple “Housing Cluster Zones” (as expressed in the Town’s Comp Plan page 159) in a natural setting. The community restores the native mosaic related to the water system and re- establishes the natural fabric lost over time. Spencer Ranch creates a socially supportive streetscape unlike traditional subdivision developments. Of the many focal points in Spencer Ranch, the “Main Promenade” transcends that traditional street development creating the sense of true community and a gathering place. The community further reinforces the “social fabric” concept by the lack of solid fencing at individual properties and the use of specific view corridors crates “the sense of open land which is, as the Town’s comp plan calls it, “more essential than lot size.” as expressed in the Town’s Comp Plan page 159) With over 30 years’ experience in fine homebuilding, we also ensure consistency and quality of every element of the development and in every home. “We are creating a unique style of living in Spencer Ranch, with a level of amenities that is really unmatched anywhere and, that contains housing that, we feel, can be sustained for a hundred years,” says founder Paul Pastore. Waterside offers full Lock-N-Leave™ services through their sister company Waterside Home Maintenance Concierge (HMC), with on-site security, a concierge, and a maintenance team. Our clients have a high-end lifestyle in an uninhibited, maintenance free environment. The property will be secured with a perimeter iron fence, stone columns, and masonry wall sections - strategically placed as to not obscure the open spaces, and a secured gated entry and exit. This highly amenitized, luxury lifestyle Development Description Page 4 of 26 community contains “multiple clusters” of housing, built around water themed land use defined by multi-layer forest and tree corridors defining the clustered zones. The community’s delivery of diversity of housing establishes a 3,000- square foot minimum home size, all with common core attributes of timeless architectural design coupled with high-quality, low-maintenance and energy- efficient homes that are finished out with best-in-class luxury-level interiors. The community is designed to encourage inhabitant interaction, promoting pedestrian mobility by bringing the homes and courtyards closer to the roadways, and by providing an internal trail and lakes system that connects the open spaces, tree preserve areas, and a design that shows most houses having direct interaction with water. Waterside has created a development that is a “WATER THEMED COMMUNITY” “WATER THEMED DEVELOPMENT: Page 83-88 of the Comprehensive Plan places the development tract in a steeper topographic setting (not the steepest) and recommends that this location is appropriate for “water related” development. Page 88 of the Comprehensive states that “additional measures other than density may be suitable for preservation of the hillside and viewshed”. Those other measures include limitations on grading (described above) and “water related” development that includes multiple water amenities. Therefore, Waterside is presenting a development design that employs water as a major component of the project…such water will be used to mitigate erosion and stabilize the grade condition. Additionally, the water will be used to create development clusters as called for in the Land Use Plan of the Comp Plan (see Cluster Development below).” Development Description Page 5 of 26 Waterside has created a development that will “LIMIT GRADING” “GRADING LIMITATIONS: Spencer Ranch is located in the “Midlands” Ecological Region of Westlake (Pg. 71 of the Comprehensive Plan). The Comp Plan requires measures be taken by any developer to limit impacts on the ground plane which promote erosion. This includes limitations on grading. Therefore, Waterside is committed to limitations on grading by allowing only that grading as is necessary to construct streets, infrastructure, development amenities, and individual homes. Waterside will prohibit the creation of lot pads and the use of side lot line retaining walls to create lot pads. Waterside will respect some exceptions where patios, drives, and pools are built that can be viewed as extensions of the home.” Waterside has created a development that will “RESTORE THE NATURAL MOSAIC” “RESTORATION OF THE NATURAL MOSAIC: Page 74 of the Comp Plan calls for “contextualization”. The Comp Plan states: “Contextualization, which grows from a commitment to landscape integrity is what helps to preserve the property values sustained in Westlake. It is therefore important that the plan creates mechanisms to continue the commitment to landscape integrity, not only to preserve the pastoral landscape of the Town, but to also preserve property values. In this sense, landscape integrity needs to guide the development-related considerations of the Comprehensive Plan.” Landscape Integrity is defined, in the same section, as “development that has been contextualized to fit within the natural landscape…” Therefore, Waterside will use the landscape opportunities presented by open space, defining clusters, to restore the natural mosaic in such a way that the Comp Plan’s call for “contextualization” is achieved. Therefore, Waterside will use the landscape opportunities presented by open space, defining development clusters, to restore the natural mosaic in such a way that the Comp Plan’s call for “contextualization” is achieved. This will require a considerable commitment to landscape materials and native species employed in a manner consistent with the Concept/Development Plan.” Development Description Page 6 of 26 Waterside has created a “CLUSTERED” development “CLUSTER DEVELOPMENT: The Land Use Plan section of the Comp Plan (page 159) states that “smaller lots could be compatible with this character [district] if such lots are CLUSTERED AND SURROUNDED WITH OPEN SPACE…”. Waterside is presenting a “cluster development”, Concept/Development Plan in which the “clusters” are surrounded with open space. To accomplish this in a manner consistent with the other requirements of the Comp Plan, Waterside will use the water theme element as an aspect of the open space defining the required development clusters as illustrated on the Concept/Development Plan.” Development Description Page 7 of 26 LANDSCAPING Landscaping: Spencer Ranch will approach the total landscaping effort as one cohesive and comprehensive unit for the entire tract of land. The landscaping design will incorporate the vision of the entire tract using all aspects of the terrain, thus creating the “natural mosaic” the town prefers. Although installed in individual increments as each home is completed, the Spencer Ranch vision is to create an overlay of a full and comprehensive landscape plan that embodies the entire parcel of land and raises the standards in Westlake and is not prejudice to any one dwelling. Landscaping will encompass many aspects for the development, conceptually and physically and will be implemented in phases; a. Park Land Dedication area-outside of the community fencing b. Development infrastructure/streets; c. Individual houses The master landscape plan will include the following elements: • The establishment of a riparian tree corridor that defines the housing cluster zoning and further defines the water system is an important aspect of this community. • Establishing forest and meadows using various types, sizes and species of trees developing a diverse over story. • Further definition will be given to the forest by using a native understory in certain areas of the community. • Weaving natural features such as bald cypress trees in and around the water system providing a more natural bank and greater complexity at the edge definitions. • Water themed community with the water emanating from the main community center water feature and acting as the “headwaters” for the water system. • A genuine effort will be made to save and protect old-growth trees. • Water features, trails, fencing, retaining walls and other architectural structures will be developed to the highest degree of thought thus impacting the community in a positive way. • Care will be given to how the landscaping and streets interact giving careful attention to the development of “social space” as it relates to this aspect. Landscape architect: TBD Development Description Page 8 of 26 UNIQUE AMENITIES Spencer Ranch Community Amenities: A gate house/sales center will be constructed on the property in the general location as shown on the Concept/Development Plan similar to the rendering concept below. The developer shall build the gate house/sales center structure along with the infrastructure improvements prior to the filing of the Final Plat. An amenity center will be constructed on the property in the general location as shown on the Concept/Development Plan similar to the rendering concept below. The developer will complete this facility within a timeframe not to exceed the closing of the 18th home in Spencer Ranch. The amenity center will contain the following minimum amenities: • Wine tasting room and storage facility • Exercise facility • Meeting area for approximately 50 people • A “Board Room” facility • Swimming pool/water feature Development Description Page 9 of 26 An open-air event pavilion will be constructed on the property in the general location as shown on the Concept/Development Plan, similar to the rendering concept below. The developer will complete this facility within a timeframe not to exceed the closing of the 18th home in Spencer Ranch. Open Community Amenities: • Multiple Lakes • Private internal trail system connecting to the public trail system with pet sanitation and watering stations • Areas designated for Public Art Competition • Trailhead parking • Historical landmark preservation of the Buck E. King historical marker Development Description Page 10 of 26 Community Fencing: Spencer Ranch will have a completely secure perimeter with contiguous fencing of various approved types employed in a manner consistent with the Concept/Development Plan below. Development Description Page 11 of 26 Perimeter fencing for the development shall be the following: • Pearson & Aspen development border (west/north) shall have decorative iron fencing that generally parallels Public streets as illustrated on the Concept/Development Plan. Decorative iron fencing with masonry columns and masonry wall sections strategically placed as determined appropriate to provide aesthetic accents, privacy, and/or shield undesirable vehicle light transmission as determined by the Developer’s Landscape Architect. • Fisher Property Private Border (north/east)- shall be one of the approved fence types-TBD • Vaquero Golf course (east) fence is currently in place and shall be cleaned and repainted black. Development Description Page 12 of 26 • City of Keller border (south) shall be high quality, vinyl coated heavy galvanized fence and framework with dark wind screen to be allowed for the south property line (City of Keller) from the Vaquero Golf Course to the west. The screening fence will terminate at the decorative iron fence that runs along Pearson Rd and will not extend farther west than the decorative iron fence. “South property border screening from City of Keller” Fences on individual lot property lines are generally prohibited, except as approved by the ARB for: a.Dog runs b.Swimming pool safety c.Privacy for internal courtyards Fence Materials: Fences may be any of the following: • Masonry • Wrought Iron, such fences may be made of solid stock or thick wall tubular steel (sufficient thickness to not burn through when welded but no thinner than 3/32 inch) with any finials or other decorative detailing being made of solid stock and welded to the fence construction or wrought as part of the iron making process. • Wood along property lines that are not in the discouraged yard space. Where wood fences are used, they should be supported by vertical tubular steel supports with at least 3 2x4 stringers supporting a wood fence design with a decorative wood cap detail. The finished face of the wood fence should face to the outside of the lot, if only 1 face is finished. Wood face member of the fence should be a minimum of ¾ inches thick. Development Description Page 13 of 26 • Welded tubular agriculture fences not located in a development where such a fence presents a contrast other fences of the development, and hosts and agricultural use or the fence is part of an agricultural theme is allowed. • High Quality, Vinyl coated heavy galvanized fence and framework with dark wind screen (south property only). Gate Materials: a.Wood with frame members measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches thick and infill planks measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches thick. b.Wrought Iron with the frame measuring a minimum of 1.5 inches square with pickets of at least ¾ in. square with welded connections. Such fences may be made of solid stock or thick wall tubular steel (sufficient thickness to not burn through when welded but no thinner than 3/32 inch) with any finials or other decorative detailing being made of solid stock and welded to the fence construction or wrought as part of the iron making process. Waterside has created a development that respects “OPEN LAND & UNINTERRUPTED GROUND PLANE” “OPEN LAND, UNINTERRUPTED GROUND PLANE, AND ELIMINATION OF OPAQUE FENCING (EXCEPT FOR SPECIFIC FUNCTIONAL PURPOSES): Page 159 of the Comp Plan states that “the sense of open land is more essential than lot size”. Also, it is an intent of the Pastoral Character District that “homes are sited in ways responsive to features of the lot, instead of the street.” Page 159 also states, “the overall character is one of a dominant landscape and houses arrayed within it”. Adding to this emphasis on land, page 202 of the Comp Plan states that “articulation of neighborhood edges can subdivide the ground plane with opaque walls and other hard division, which begin to suburbanize the rural landscape”. Later, on that same page it states, “open spaces are meant to be remnants of the historic rural landscape and serve as seams that bind the commercial and residential uses together…therefore, porous edges are more preferred than barrier edges”. It is clear that the Comp Plan seeks to preserve the sense of uninterrupted ground plane in the Pastoral Character District. Consequently, Waterside will provide means of defining edges (development and property fencing) that preserves the uninterrupted ground plane (as much as possible) in a way that remembers the historic rural fabric. Neighborhood definition will be transparent, not a solid barrier. Property fencing will be limited, with certain concessions to privacy needs, screening, and dog runs accommodated in ways that do not result in isolating the entire lot from the general ground plane as shown on the Concept/Development Plan.” Development Description Page 14 of 26 SPENCER RANCH LAND USE PARKS AND OPEN SPACE Open space: The Westlake Comprehensive Plan and future land use plan do not show any open-space requirements for the subject property. However, per the proposed Concept/Development Plan, Waterside is providing Open Space and dedicating the following Public Open Space to the Town of Westlake: • Approximately 13.7 acres of open space are being provided. • Approximately 9.6 acres of Private Open Space • Approximately 3.6 acres of Public Open Space • Approximately 0.5 acres of Tree Dedication • This dedication includes a privately maintained and publicly owned/accessible linear park along Pearson Lane, and a tree preserve area near the neighboring property on Aspen Lane. • This dedication also requires any houses that side to Pearson Ln be no closer than 150 feet from Pearson Ln. Development Description Page 15 of 26 Parkland dedication: Parkland dedication is required based on 1-acre of parkland for every 30 residences for a total of 2.4 acres. The Concept/Development Plan shows approximately 3.6 acres to be dedicated with the platting of this property. The parkland will be privately maintained by the HOA but will be publicly accessible. Waterside has created a development that respects “PUBLIC OPEN SPACE & RURAL LANDSCAPE PRESERVATION” “PUBLIC OPEN SPACE/ RURAL LANDSCAPE PRESERVATION: Page 193 of the Comp Plan describes Rural Ranch Landscape (a type of Open Space recommended for the Pastoral Character Zone) as places “where residential development may move to preserve some aspect of the rural heritage”. In the Urban Design Structure portion of the Comp Plan states that “open space edges are meant to be remnants of the historic rural landscape…” Clearly, the Comp Plan is seeking to find opportunities for preservation of the rural heritage of Westlake in the creation of open space. Spencer Ranch contains a water feature that remains from earlier days (likely a ranch stock pond). Therefore, Waterside will take measures to include portions of this water body in a usable open space that can fulfill the Comp Plan call for rural landscape preservation.” Public Art: Waterside has a strong desire to support the arts in Westlake and will commit the following to a Public Art Competition: a.A competition site of a size to be determined, to place the art at Spencer Ranch in the Public Open Space b.A donation by Waterside of an amount to be determined will be outlined in the Economic Development Agreement. Development Description Page 16 of 26 STREETS, PARKING, SIDEWALKS AND TRAILS Streets: All community streets will be privately owned and maintained. They will be constructed with mountable curbs with enhanced finishes. Streetlights: Streetlights will be located at corners and intersections. Light fixtures will be low-pedestal-type fixtures that comply with Town ordinances and dark-sky design guidelines. Sidewalks: Sidewalks (natural material) will be located along each side of the esplanade water feature, serving pedestrians on both sides of the divided main roadway. Trail systems: The internal trail system will facilitate pedestrian mobility within the community. The public trail system will be extended from Aspen Lane south to the Town border. The internal trail system will connect to the public trail system at access-controlled locations. Water: Town of Westlake water system will connect to the development at two separate locations to create a looped-system. Sewer: The project engineer has met with town staff and performed the necessary calculations to determine that the public water and sewer systems can accommodate the additional loads anticipated to be generated by the proposed development and there are multiple access points available for connection to the public systems. Storm-water: Combination of natural grassed swales, detention ponds, and reflecting pools, connecting to the existing public street storm-water system. Duct bank: As required by Town ordinances, the developer will install a duct bank system throughout the subdivision. Each home will be connected to the duct bank system prior to the Certificate of Occupancy approval. Development Description Page 18 0f 26 HOME SPECIFICATIONS Home Pricing: The diversity of housing orchestrated in “Cluster Zones” are projected to have an initial sales price starting at $1,595,000.00 Spencer Ranch contains both one and two-story homes. Spencer Ranch Homes are expected to have the following square footage by type: 1.South Side Villa Homes (A) 3,500 sq.ft. 2.Upper East Side Brownstones (B) 4,000 sq.ft. 3.Meadows Villa Homes (C) 4,000 sq.ft. 4.Meadows Lakeside Homes (D) 4,500 sq.ft. 5.Ridgeview Homes (E) 5,000 sq.ft. 6.Promenade/Estate Homes (F) 5,500 sq.ft. “The locations of the housing types listed are shown on the Concept/Development Plan Supplemental housing type Designation Plan by their respective letter designations.” Building Setbacks: Front Rear (1) Sides Promenade homes (F) 20* 20** 10*** All other detached homes (A,C,D,E) 20* 20** 5 All single-family attached (B) 20* 20** 0 (1) When backing or siding to Aspen Lane, there shall be a 25-foot minimum setback. When backing up to Vaquero Golf Club there shall be a 25 ft. minimum set back permitted for no more than 50% of the homes facing the shared property line with the Golf Club. The balance of homes facing this shared property line shall have a setback 30 ft. or greater so that the configuration of variable setbacks substantially conforms to the Concept/Development Plan. Lots adjacent to, or backing up to, Aspen Lane shall have a 25-foot minimum setback. *Garages, courtyards, and accessory structures may encroach up to 10 feet into the required front yard. **When abutting an open space or water feature, no setback is required. ***Promenade Homes that side to Pearson Ln are required to have a minimum setback of 150 feet. Development Description Page 17 of 25 LOT SPECIFICATIONS Density & Lot Size: Spencer Ranch will be a unique “Lifestyle” community that will contain a maximum of 72 high-quality single-family attached and detached homes. The lots may be custom fitted to accommodate homes as they are purchased. Housing type, size, number of floors and the homeowner’s desire for larger or smaller footprints will impact lot size and configuration, and ultimately the total number of lots to be built upon. Larger lots may result in a lower total number of lots in the development. Minimum Lot Widths: Promenade / Estate homes (F) 85 feet Villa homes (A, C, D) 70 feet Ridgeview homes (E) 65 feet Attached homes (B) 80feet (2, 40-foot lot groups) Waterside has created a development that contains quality “LOT DENSITY” “DENSITY: Page 159 of the Comprehensive Plan states, "smaller lots could be compatible with this character district if such lots are clustered and surrounded with open space so that the gross density remains 1 dwelling unit per acre". The text immediately following that statement further states, "the sense of open land is more important than lot size". The second statement offers a qualifier to the application of the first statement, suggesting that density may yield to accomplishment other visions of the Comp Plan. However, that variation from 1 unit per acre in order to achieve that "sense of open land" and cluster development must be limited so that the resulting development is not confused with densities more typical of another Character District. While some increase in density may be suitable if ALL other visions of the Comp Plan are accomplished, that density MUST be appropriately less than 2 units per acre. Therefore, Waterside commits to a density that is less than 2 units per acre (specifically1.89 units per acre) which Waterside views as necessary to achieve ALL other visions of the Comp Plan, as they are applicable to this site and specified in this application for Spencer Ranch.” Development Description Page 19 of 26 “Main Promenade at Spencer Ranch” Waterside has created a development that creates a “DIVERSIFICATION OF HOUSING” “DIVERSIFICATION OF HIGHER END HOUSING OPTIONS THROUGH CREATION OF A UNIQUELY SOCIAL LIFESTYLE COMMUNITY: The Housing Plan component of the Comp Plan (pages 261-272) stresses the need for “life style” offerings to accompany housing options for other high-end markets. These projects, which diversify the housing offerings more typical of Westlake are needed to attract younger buyers, meet future housing needs of an aging population, and mitigate value encroachment (typically approaching Westlake from Southlake and Keller). The unique location of Spencer Ranch at the edge of the Town, abutting the shared boundary line with Keller, makes it particularly important to accomplishing this objective. Therefore, Waterside has created a “lifestyle” product which is more than simply smaller lots. Spencer Ranch presents a true housing/living option that will indeed capture a high-end buyer at the edge of the Westlake submarket (abutting Keller) …thereby affirming the continued integrity of that submarket. Key to the lifestyle/ housing product is the proposed social use of the street space and the creation of a true promenade, in the manner of distinctive/ historic developments such as Riverside, Chicago (1879). Waterside commits to create a significant central promenade with amenities that enhance pedestrian use of the entire space and promotes pedestrian pleasure in that use, as shown on the Concept/Development Plan.” Development Description Page 20 of 26 Minimum Size: The minimum size of a residence shall be 3,000 square feet. Massing: Massing will vary by housing type. Great attention will be given to achieving horizontal and vertical articulation within individual structures and/or within groups of structures, so as to avoid the uniform massing and alignment found in typical suburban subdivisions. Building Height: Because of the potential for lower-pitched roofs with the chosen architectural style, smaller footprints of clustered homes, and respecting the natural terrain in the development with terrain absorption within the foundations of each house, we are requesting a maximum height of 36 feet, as measured from the top of the foundation to the highest plate for attached homes, and 35 feet, as measured from the foundation to the mid-span of the highest roof pitch for detached homes. This allows the architectural aspect to create a rolling fabric of houses not restricted to the typical cookie-cutter guidelines. Garages: Promenade/Estate homes shall have a minimum of three enclosed parking spaces. All other homes shall have a minimum of two enclosed parking spaces. Garage doors shall be made of sectional wood or be wood clad. Garage doors shall be recessed a minimum of (8) eight inches (nominal) from the plane of the adjacent wall. Front facing garage doors are allowed if located further back on the lot than the side-facing garage portion and are in a motor court setting. Roofs: Roofing materials facing the weather shall be of high and enduring quality. Permitted roof materials include: a.High quality clay or concrete tile (with a thickness similar to clay). (Acceptable styles and colors to be detailed in the Spencer Ranch Design Guidelines document) b.Metal: Traditional standing seam with standing folded and soldered seams. Allowed for porches and architectural features only. (Acceptable styles and colors to be detailed in the Spencer Ranch Design Guidelines document) c.Flat or low-pitched roofing that is 2:12 pitch or less may be of any code approved material. Development Description Page 21 of 26 Windows: Orientation of all windows at Spencer Ranch will follow the Town’s Building Quality Manual section; Standard 3.10: Openings. Spencer Ranch will allow the following windows and doors providing they are of high quality and comply with the Spencer Ranch Building Guidelines: a.High quality wood windows and doors with metal clad exteriors and minimum glazing with Cardinal 366 insulated glass or equal. b.High quality iron windows and doors and minimum glazing with Cardinal 366 insulated glass or equal. Exterior walls: Exterior walls shall be 80 percent masonry as required for all Residential Districts by the Code of Ordinances. Exterior walls shall have horizontal and vertical articulation or architectural delineation on all elevations. Exterior lighting: All exterior lighting shall be subdued, indirect and comply with town ordinances, as well as follow “dark-sky” design guidelines. Development Description Page 22 of 26 QUALITY CONSTRUCTION INTENT The intent of Waterside’s submittal, to create a community of clustered high- quality homes on smaller low-maintenance lots, to provide the “diversity of housing types” that the Comprehensive Plan states is needed within the Town of Westlake. This new proposed PD District will contain development standards that are intended to guide design and construction of the high- quality homes within the new PD District to be equal to or exceed the current level of quality of construction and finish-out as that found in the best of the larger estate homes that currently exist in the Town of Westlake. This new PD contains language that references: • An Architectural Review Board (ARB) • Spencer Ranch Building Guidelines • Town of Westlake Building Quality Manual It is the intent of this new PD to use these documents, as approved by the Town. The ARB shall assure compliance with all architectural standards and may not change the documents so as to cause a change in permittable architectural style without the Town Managers prior approval. The ARB shall approve all plan submittals prior to them being submitted to the Town for permitting. The Town still has authority to enforce Town of Westlake ordinances and the Building Quality Manual. Waterside has created a development that incorporates the Town’s “BUILDING QUALITY MANUAL” “INCORPORATION OF THE TOWN’S BUILDING QUALITY MANUAL: The Town has, in no uncertain terms, made a statement as to its expectations for the future quality of its built fabric in the recently adopted Building Quality Manual. Therefore, Waterside will adopt Westlake’s Building Quality manual as part of the Spencer Ranch Design Guidelines.” Development Description Page 23 of 26 COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION & DESIGN CONTROL Homeowners Association: The community will be governed by a to-be-established Homeowners Association (HOA) that will be responsible for the common area maintenance, private street maintenance, and enforcing the design guidelines for the community. Design Guidelines: A detailed design guideline document is being prepared specifically for Spencer Ranch. The Spencer Ranch design guideline document will clearly detail design and building guidelines specific to Spencer Ranch and will also - incorporate the Town of Westlake’s Building Quality Manual into its architectural standards. Design enforcement will be performed by the ARB which will include a licensed Architect as a required member. The Town will assure compliance with the all Town Ordinances. Architectural Design: At Spencer Ranch, The Developer/Builder will employ 360-degree architecture when designing each residential product within the development. The open/urban beauty of the development drives this design and building practice. In this practice, full consideration is given to every building elevation and every roof plane of each structure during the design process. The intent is to ensure delivery of aesthetically pleasing architectural features as viewed from all parts of the development, and not create a distinct and determinable hierarchy between major and minor elevations. Waterside will reduce the visual impact of all exterior mechanical elements. Spencer Ranch requires all building plans submitted be done by a Licensed Architect. Architectural Review: An Architectural Review Board (ARB) will be established through the HOA/declarant that has approval authority over the house quality of design and construction of all homes and additions. The ARB will be charged to ensure that the Building Guidelines of Spencer Ranch and the included Westlake Building Quality Manual provisions, are strictly followed. The Conditions, Covenants, and Restrictions will establish the required makeup of the ARB which will include a licensed Architect as a required member. Development Description Page 24 of 26 Waterside has created a development that requires “LICENSED ARCHITECTS” “LICENSED ARCHITECT PROVISION OF PLANS THAT INCLUDE EXTERIOR DETAILS NECESSARY TO EXPLAIN ALL FEATURES OF CONSTRUCTION TO THE BUILDING TRADES: Much of the home designs built in Westlake, Southlake, Trophy Club, and Keller are done by “Building Designers” instead of a Licensed Architect. The plan sets produced by this means of production are very basic, leaving much of what is finally seen from the street, in the hands of a tradesman who may, or may not, have sufficient background to execute an outcome consistent with the design intent or the particular style represented by the “designer’s” drawings. Continued over time, this will ultimately weaken the distinctiveness of Westlake. Therefore, Waterside commits to have all building plans prepared by a Licensed Architect and that plan sets prepared by this architect will contain sufficient details to fully explain the exterior construction to a competent contractor/tradesperson.” Development Description Page 25 of 26 LIFESTYLE COMMUNITY WITH MAINTENANCE FREE LIVING Waterside Home Maintenance Concierge provides a “World Class” level of service to its clients that is not offered in the marketplace.

The location will be enclosed with temporary wood fencing, or chain-link fencing with screening material attached, as to not be directly visible from any street. Contractors will be required to contain debris daily and/or transport to the containment site. Soil: All construction spoils or natural soil moved from all construction sites within the development will be stored in a designated location(s) that will be enclosed by proper silt fencing and/or other erosion control measures as needed. Documentation: All town and construction documentation, including but not limited to building permits, inspection reports, geotechnical studies and building plans, will be located on-site in the construction offices of the developer/builder with full access granted to town building officials. Sanitary Stations: Multiple sanitary stations (port-o-let) will be located within the community in close proximity to all construction sites. The stations will be screened from the street frontage, either behind a 6-foot-high screening fence or with temporary mock-ups built from materials similar to the materials used in the construction of the homes. The mock-ups will contain three walls and a roof section hiding the stations from the street view. Sanitary stations will be cleaned on a regular schedule. Material Storage: Material storage will be located within a designated area(s) that will be screened with fencing TBD. Construction Parking: Contractors will be allowed to park only in designated parking areas and on a single side of the roadway near the construction site, but not adjacent to any occupied dwellings. Contractors will be required to park in designated parking areas only for weekend work after residents occupy the development. end Development Description Amenity Center Gate House Fence Exhibits Esplanade Esplanade Perimeter Boundary Exhibit Housing Elevations Housing Elevations Housing Elevations Housing Elevations Plan ElEmEnts: land UsE Plan 167the land Use Planwith residential integrity, rural identity, town form, and commercial/residential rela-tionships. Therefore, the built characteristics of Land Use in Westlake should be in-fluenced by what Community Type is engaged and what View Condition is affected. Community Type expresses the desired built character of land use that should mani-fest in development of existing entitlements. View Condition expresses the magnitude (density and height) of land use that preserves the vista.Land Use Relationship to View Conditions: The View Analysis discussed in the Frame-work Plan section of this Comprehensive Plan identifies 5 view conditions as follows:1. Vista Point Zone: Sectors of Westlake from which the recognizable views, gen-erally considered typical of the Town, are attained. These are typically northerly views from areas from areas along, and south of, Dove Road. These elevations are generally higher than elevations along Highway 114. Views identified by Planning Workshop participants as characteristic of Westlake’s pastoral, pictur-esque, and rural identity are mostly seen from this zone and the view is toward the north.2. Vista Termini Zone: Areas of Westlake, generally north of Dove Road, where land elevations equal or exceed elevation 690 to 700 ft. above sea level and cre-ate promontory landforms that define the end point of any vista which includes them. In many cases, these are the land related objects viewed.3. Vista Shade Zone: Areas of Westlake, generally along Highway 114 and north of the vista termini (discussed above) that contain land elevations lower than 690 – 700 ft. above sea level and are largely obscured from view by these higher elevations in the foreground of any vista toward them.4. View Shed Zone: Areas of Westlake that are not visually screened or obscured by foreground land elevations and consequently lie within the vista attained from the Vista Point Zone.5. View Corridor Zone: Lineal views, usually along creek ways as they descend in a northerly direction that are attained from the Vista Point Zone. These views host the water bodies and wooded areas that are important visual assets of the Town.The proposed Land Use Plan of the Comprehensive Plan Update builds from the Goals and Citizen Priority Statements as well as the Framework Plan. A key component of the Framework Plan is the View Analysis that expresses the geographic boundaries of citizen prioritization of pastoral, picturesque, and rural views (one of the primary themes and repeated concerns of citizen input). The Framework Plan further divides the 5 View Conditions into 3 Community Types (Pastoral Community, Town Com-munity, and Regional Community), thereby expressing the Citizen Priorities dealing LAND USE PLANDISCLAIMER: The land use districts shown on this map in no way modify the permitted uses and/ or conditions of use (FAR, building height, etc.) specified in any zoning or Planned Development Ordinance approved by the Town of Westlake. These land use districts are intended to guide the Council in their evaluation of site plans submitted for their approval and/ or property owner requests to transfer commercial square footage from one land use district to another when the legal mechanism for such transfer has been adopted by the Town of Westlake. See Policy Section A in the Implementation Document for rates of transfer, trigger points, and other implementation language. Views and Vista Define the Experience of Westlake From: To:Ron Ruthven; Nick Ford Subject:Rezoning request from R5 to PD7 for 38 acres located east of Pearson and south of Aspen – Tim Brittan Property Date:Thursday, April 19, 2018 12:36:17 PM Mr. Ron Ruthven, Director of Planning and Development, Westlake Planning and Development Mr. Nick Ford, Development Coordinator, Westlake Planning and Development     Dear Mr. Ruthven and Mr. Ford,   I called the City of Westlake and was transferred to Pat Cook, Westlake Building Official, and he recommended I send this to your attention.   We are David and Julie Elmer and are the homeowners at 2017 Bantry Drive which borders the south side of Mr. Brittan’s property on N Pearson Lane. We have lived in our home for 13+ years and are part of the Oakmont Hills subdivision. Oakmont Hills is an 88 home subdivision in the city of Keller with home values ranging from $750K to $1.5M+.   We did not receive a public hearing notice and only learned about the requested zoning change after reviewing the April 16th Planning and Zoning Commission Meeting minutes posted on the Westlake website. This is very disappointing considering that we have a large stake in what is developed next to our property. Also, Westlake and Keller are not only neighbors but share many public services.   We adamantly oppose the zoning change request. When we bought our home a significant consideration was the potential future of the property behind us. At that time, Terry Bradshaw owned the property and it was a beautiful horse ranch. Most importantly, we knew the property was zoned residential – 5 acres. We believed even if the property were to be developed it would consist of large estate homes on 5 acre lots.   After reviewing the minutes of the April 16th Planning and Zoning Commission meeting it appears there was no consideration to the homes on the south border. With all the years we have lived on the boarder of Westlake we have always admired the town of Westlake for its thoughtful development and deep consideration for its residents. We also request your consideration of our concerns below and do not approve the plan as submitted.   1. The density and lot size is not compatible with the surrounding area and is unsightly. All comparisons in the proposal are with Vaquero which is only on one side of the proposed development. Many homes to the north, west and south are on multi acre lots. Even though the aesthetics of the proposed development appear high quality it would negatively impact property values in the surrounding area. 2. There needs to be a set-back or buffer between the proposed homes on the south boarder and Oakmont Hills. There should a 50’ buffer so the homes are not on top of each other. The 50’ buffer should have a berm with trees or bushes on top to create privacy and pleasing views from both sides. The way it is proposed today, a single home in Oakmont Hills could have as many as three homes across their back yard and only be few feet from their property line. 3. The proposed border fencing is completely unacceptable. The current proposal states “Along the southern boundary of the development adjacent to the City of Keller, the applicant proposes to construct a “high quality, vinyl coated heavy galvanized fence and framework with dark wind screen”. This is extremely unsightly from our side, it diminishes the value of our property and greatly reduces our quality of life and enjoyment of our backyard. At minimum, the boarder should consist of stone/masonry columns with decorative iron fencing. 4. Town Homes should not be allowed to be included. The surrounding area does not support the requested density and adding multi-tenant buildings exacerbates this problem further. The inclusion of town-homes would not only reduce the property values in Oakmont Hills but be unsightly and greatly reduce the privacy and use of backyards that are facing the town-homes.   We appreciate the City of Westlake considering our concerns. We plan to notify and educate all residents of Oakmont Hills and the surrounding neighborhoods. We welcome the opportunity to meet with any town officials to discuss our concerns and thank you again for your consideration.   David and Julie Elmer 2017 Bantry Drive Keller, TX 76262   From: To:Ron Ruthven; Nick Ford; Subject:Fwd: Rezoning Request (R5 to PD) Pearson Lane south of Aspen Lane Date:Tuesday, April 24, 2018 12:37:36 PM Mr. Ruthven, and Mr. Ford, I am a resident of Oakmont Hills in Keller, and as you know, our subdivision boarders the planned 37.8 acre development by Paul Pastore, Waterside Land Company, LLC, on behalf of property owner, J. Timothy Brittan, at Preston Lane and Aspen Lane. The summary description of this development calls for a 72 lot single family development and this will require the City of Westlake to amend its current R-5 zoning designation. As a Keller resident, I understand that my concerns may not be the primary focus of the Westlake Planning and Zoning Commission, but after reading all of the information provided in the public hearing documents (P170 – P240) (http://westlake- tx.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/1517 , I do want to express a few concerns. Before we moved into Oakmont Hills six years ago, I called and spoke with the Keller, Southlake and Westlake City Managers regarding their estimates of the possible expansion or widening of Pearson Lane. Keller’s City Manager stated that current traffic patterns did not warrant widening the road but estimates of future growth could influence that decision. The City of Southlake said there were no current plans for any type of expansion of Pearson Lane and he did not see that being a real possibility in the future. The City Manager at Westlake was more emphatic, and he said it was not now, nor would it be in any future plans to expand Pearson Lane. He also said that the Cities of Keller and Southlake could widen Pearson up the Westlake city line but the City of Westlake would never widen their portion of Pearson Lane. His comments gave me a great amount of confidence that Pearson Lane would never be widened. My first concern is that future requests for additional developments will undoubtedly arise and the council will be asked to make additional exceptions to your current zoning requirements. Areas of development that will likely fall into this category is the Shelby Estates land on Aspen Lane and Pearson Lane, along with the property that is currently for sale on the southwest corner of Pearson Lane and Dove Road. This new development, will add additional traffic to roads that will see significantly more future traffic as the area continues to develop. My second concern is with the lower quality fencing that is being proposed on the south side of this development. I would like to know why this fencing is deemed acceptable on the southern border and why the requirements are different from the other border areas? This fencing will be able to be seen as you drive through the Oakmont Hills subdivision and it will also be unappealing to those home owners in our neighborhood who back up to this development and it could impact the value of our homes. It is troubling to me that the committee would not require the same fencing around the entire development. Why do they feel it is acceptable to have a cheaper, less visually appealing fence in places where Westlake residence will not see it! I am disappointed to think that we now have to quibble over something that the committee should have originally overruled. This fencing would obviously not be acceptable to your Vaquero residences, and it is not acceptable to your neighbors in Oakmont Hills. Additional traffic, expansion of existing roads, and the blatant disparity in the quality of the fencing are my primary concerns. The rezoning for the Spencer Ranch development is being framed as a onetime exemption that will not significantly impact the future demands for the existing roads. I feel certain that future rezoning requests will be made for more higher density developments, and group like Waterside Land Company could easily irrevocably change the vision of Westlake. Please consider my concerns and I would look forward to visiting with you more about these issues.
