ORDINANCE NO. 003-22

AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND THE ZONING

ORDINANCE AND ZONING MAP OF THE CITY OF OPELIKA

(LAUREL LAKES PUD)

BE IT ORDAINED by the City Council (the “Council”) of the City of Opelika, Alabama (the “City”) as follows:

Section 1.  FINDINGS.  The Council has determined and hereby finds and declares that the following facts are true and correct:

(a) Flat Iron Farms, LLC (“Flat Iron” or the “Developer”) is the owner of record of that certain property consisting of approximately 160.2 acres located along North Uniroyal Road and Ridge Road

(b) Flat Iron heretofore submitted to the City a development plan for a planned unit development (“PUD”) entitled “Laurel Lakes PUD”, consisting of approximately 160.2 acres.

(c) The proposed development consists of approximately 372 single-family home lots and three lots (37.4 acres total) that are reserved for stormwater detention/open space. The development will accessed from North Uniroyal Road and Ridge Road by new streets. The proposed density is 2.35 dwelling units per acre.               

(d) The Planning Commission heretofore conducted a public hearing of the proposed development and referred to the City Council its recommendation to approve the proposed development.

(e) Following the public hearing conducted by the Planning Commission, the Developer and its engineers met with the adjoining property owners to review the development plan.

(f) As the result of the discussions between the Developer and the adjoining property owners, Flat Iron agreed to modify and revise the development plan as follows:

The overall number of residential lots is reduced from 372 (total 375 including 3 open space lots) to 338 (total 341 including 3 open space lots).  This is a reduction of 34 lots and homes.  This reduces the overall density from 2.3 units per acre to 2.1 units per acre.

The reduction of lots is created because approximately half of the lots are increasing in size from a minimum of 60 ft width (9,000 square feet) to 72 ft width (10,800 square feet).  

The overall amount of open space is increasing from 36.3 acres to 42.15 acres.   This also includes increases in the area of open space next to adjacent property owners along with increasing the minimum buffer to 25 feet in width.  The open space and buffers will not be part of the developable lot but will be held through the homeowners association. 

(g) A revised development plan has been prepared by Flat Iron and submitted to the City Council for approval and the City Council has determined that it is now in the best interest of the City and its citizens to approve said revised development plan.

(h) It is advisable and in the interest of the City and the public interest that the proposed property described in Section 3 below should be developed as a residential planned unit development.

Section 2.  APPROVAL OF THE REVISED DEVELOPMENT PLAN.  The Revised Development Plan as submitted for review is hereby approved and affirmed as required by Section 8.18(N) of the Zoning Ordinance of the City.

Section 3.  DESIGNATION OF A PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT.  The official Zoning Map is hereby amended and the zoning classification for the following parcel of land shall be changed from a R-2 District (Low-Density Residential District) to a Planned Unit Development (PUD) on the official zoning map of the City.

The above-described property, containing approximately 160.2 acres, is located along North Uniroyal Road and Ridge Road.

Section 4.  RETENTION OF COPIES OF REVISED DEVELOPMENT PLAN. Copies of the Revised Development Plan shall be maintained in the office of the City Clerk, City Planner, City Engineer and Building Official and shall be open for public inspection.
