Document Description
The project is a new Conditional Use Permit application to the Planning Commission, proposing to demolish the existing Lake Wildwood Association Public Works maintenance facility and replace with an updated facility complex to suit the Lake Wildwood Association maintenance needs. The existing Public Works maintenance facility was originally approved and constructed by building permit in the 1970’s and has fallen into a state of disrepair and no longer suits the needs of the maintenance team. The project parcel is 38.49 acres in size, with a split zoning designation of Single-Family Residential & Planned Development (“R1-PD”). The project intends to disturb a total of 2.66± (116,094 square-feet) of the subject parcel, as part of the development process. Approximately 0.47-acres (20,587 square-feet) of building square footage is proposed. New development is comprised of (3) new buildings; including an 1,031 square-foot administrative maintenance building, a 6,668 square-foot equipment storage building, and a 3,318 square-foot outdoor covered storage area; a 2,700 square foot vehicle wash, fueling, and fertilizer system; 2,800 square feet of bulk material storage bins; fleet parking, and other site improvements. Other site improvements include re-grading of the existing outdoor storage yard, re-asphalting existing parking areas and internal roadways, as well as new landscape improvements to the site. The project includes a Management Plan application to allow for the removal of approximately 0.25-acres of landmark oak groves on the project site, including the removal of exempt oak trees prior to project construction. Association maintenance facility operations will not cease during project construction, maintenance team will be operating out of permitted portables in the interim.
