NEW BUSINESS

19HCO-03, Arrow Energy Solutions – Request for Highway 20 Development Permit to allow a 2,200 SF PV Roof Array at 11084 US Hwy 20 W (New ARC Building).

MOTION: Baranski moved, seconded by Bochniak to approve Cal. No. 19HCO-03 as written. Discussion: Baranski said he was very pleased that ARC was installing solar. It really is a good thing. Jansen agreed.

Baranski said the only reason the zoning board is seeing this is because the array is slightly over 2000 square feet which Oldenburg could have approved. It’s not a historic building and it is not in the historic district.

Baranski reviewed the approval criteria:

Approval Criteria & Decision:

Highway 20 Development Permit - The application shall demonstrate that the proposed development will comply with the following:

(1) All applicable site plan review criteria in § 154.914;

(2) The overall context of the corridor and the goals for new development as described in Chapter III of the Design Manual;

(3) The corridor development concepts described in Chapter IV of the Design Manual;

(4) The proposed character of the applicable design districts as described in Chapter V of the Design Manual;

(5) The proposed pattern of development for the Highway 20 Corridor as described in Chapter VI of the Design Manual;

(6) The standards for building orientation, design and materials as described in Chapter VII of the Design Manual; and

(7) The standards for site features and elements as described in Chapter VII of the Design Manual.
