Some lots are located within and adjacent to Marsh Creek, which becomes a regulated floodplain at the
Jackson Street crossing. Per Section 1351.13(f), the City Engineer is requesting a hydrologic and
hydraulic analysis for the area proposed for development since no special flood hazard areas have been
/conversion/tmp/scratch/363734440.doc Zone-7-17-7894
identified by FEMA, but are expected to contain known flooding. The analysis shall determine the 1
percent (100-yr) chance flood. Additionally, the low point of Jackson St. shall be determined and

intersection meets all applicable code sections.

Analysis: The applicant has submitted an informal rezoning request to rezone three (3) parcels at 9120 and
9168 Jackson Street consisting of 2.607 acres from R-4, Single Family Residential to RVG,
Village Green. The parcels are adjacent to the 6.02 acre parcel at 9152 Jackson Street rezoned in
June of 2017 from R-4, Single Family Residential to RVG, Village Green. Per 1137.03
Application Procedure, the applicant is required to appear before the Commission to informally
discuss the proposed rezoning prior to submitting an application for an amendment to the official
Zoning Map. Existing single-family homes will be demolished per the conceptual site plan.
The Wayside Creek bisects the front of the property flowing in an east to west direction. The
creek bed extends along the property to the west and then flows beneath Jackson Street to the
north and then into the Connecticut Colony Subdivision. A conservation protection zone for
stream valley preservation is required to have a 25-ft. setback from the edge of the normal water
level of the stream, not the centerline of the stream as indicated on the formal rezoning plan.
Access to the development is from a 26-ft. wide private drive that will intersect with Jackson
Street approximately 260-ft west of the easterly property line. The City Engineer is requesting a
sight distance analysis to be provided for review and approval for the private drive intersection at
Jackson Street and a trip generation study. The plan does not indicate sidewalks along Jackson
Street or at the front of the sublots. The formal zoning request shall include the location of
sidewalks along Jackson Street and along the private drive connecting to the open space areas. It
may be appropriate to extend a sidewalk or trail on the east side of the private drive from Jackson
Street to the existing trail which bisects the open space area in the circular cul-de-sac. The length
of the cul-de-sac will exceed 600-ft and will require a waiver from the Planning Commission.
/conversion/tmp/scratch/363734440.doc Zone-7-17-7894
The plan for the Village Green, RVG development proposes 20 ranch-style home sites with a zero
lot line limited common area community. The residents will own their home and an exclusive use
area surrounding it, and the remaining property will be designated as limited common area and
maintained by a homeowners association. The street will be private with no on-street parking;
seven (7) off-street parking spaces will be provided. The homeowners association will be
responsible for street maintenance. The applicant provided draft copies of standards and design
guidelines for use of the common property, limited common property and exclusive use areas and
declaration of condominium ownership as part of the previous zoning request. The documents
include restrictions on the use of individual units and common elements within the association. It
may be appropriate to include as a condition that the draft Creekside Farm Standards and Design
Guidelines and Declaration of Condominium Ownership for Creekside Farms be incorporated in
the rezoning request and subsequent subdivision approval.
The plan indicates an exclusive use area measuring 56 ft. wide by 87 ft. deep. The proposed 40 ft.
wide by 65 ft. deep ranch units building setbacks includes a 10-ft. front, 12-ft. rear and eight (8)-
ft. sides. The units have varying setbacks from the private drive ranging from 25 ft. to 40+ ft.
Proposed building setbacks shall be provided on the formal rezoning request. The Commission
may wish to include a condition requiring a tree preservation plan including the limited common
areas along the perimeter of the property be submitted with the formal rezoning request.
Per Chapter 1157.07 Special Provisions Relative to RVG Village Green Zones, Village Green
projects shall have recreation, park and common open space equal to or not less than 15 percent
of the total development area exclusive of streets. The 1.51 acres of park area provides for 18.9
percent open space of the 7.95 acres excluding the proposed private drive. The applicant
indicates benches and a gazebo will be installed within the open space, but retention of the natural
area may be desirable. A five (5)-ft. trail will provide access if feasible to the future city park. Per
1117.04 Easements (d), where subdivisions are adjacent to schools, parks or other public
facilities, access easements shall be provided to those facilities where deemed appropriate by the
Planning Commission. Such access easements shall be a minimum of 20 ft. wide and side yard
setbacks for adjacent lots shall be measured from the easement.
There are six (6) sublots located within and adjacent to Marsh Creek, which becomes a regulated
floodplain at the Jackson Street crossing. Per Section 1351.13(f), the City Engineer is requesting
a hydrologic and hydraulic analysis for the area proposed for development since no special flood
hazard areas have been identified by FEMA, but are expected to contain known flooding. The
analysis shall determine the one (1) percent (100-yr.) chance flood. In addition, the low point of
Jackson St. shall be determined and compared to the 100-yr. flood elevation from the H & H
Study; the structures shall not be located within this newly identified flood area. The lowest floor,
including basements, adjacent to these flood areas shall be elevated one and one-half (1.5) ft.
above the determined flood height.
The applicant is required to provide letters of available capacity from Aqua Ohio Water Company
and the Lake County Sanitary Engineers office with the formal zoning request.
Stipulations:
1. Comments per the City Engineer and Fire Department shall be addressed as part of any final subdivision plan
application.
2. The applicant shall submit a proposed street name for review at the time of the Formal Rezoning request.
3. A legal description of the property shall be submitted as part of the Formal Rezoning request.

and landscaping features existing thereon.
