The Planning & Zoning commission on Monday continued an application without approving it for the proposed 293-unit Villas at Stonegate townhouse project.
Commissioners had a variety of questions on site, landscape and photometric plans as well as elevations. While some were addressed by developer BFH Group, the commission felt there were too many stipulations attached to the measure to approve the project without further review.
The measure was continued until “a time when the applicant and the city have completed the stipulations and modifications that were discussed.”
Commissioners’ concerns – and associated stipulations – fell into four areas:
- Lack of pedestrian access and security gates to the Wells retail center and Walmart.
- Ensuring aesthetics of the community clubhouse match those of the other buildings, as the clubhouse design was not included in elevations.
- Lack of parking on the project’s north side.
- Not enough awnings for windows on west-facing units.
