<br />. B. Appeal - Northland PUD, Norkenzle and Mln a
<br />Approved by the Planning Commission on October 10, 1972.
<br />Northland PUD, Norkenzie and Minda - Appeal of Marvin P. Brabham, 1709 Minda
<br />Drive, from the Planning Commission decision granting preliminary approval to
<br />Northland Planned Unit Development, located at the southeast corner of Norkenzie
<br />. and Minda, was referred for joint consideration of the Council and Planning Com-
<br />. mission. Objections from residents in the area to the multi-family development
<br />'were based primarily on its effect on surrounding properties.
<br />Assistant Planning Director pointed out and explained major elements of the
<br />proposed development on a site plan. He said the Commission in its considera-
<br />tion was concerned with density of the project and the crowded effect which
<br />.might occur in allowing 20 dwellings because of the odd shape of the parcel.
<br />The Commission was also concerned with location of the buildings, parking areas,
<br />, proximi ty of the swimming pool to the property line, remote location of play ,
<br />areas from dwelling uni ts. In gi ving preliminary approval the Commission set 1\
<br />: condi tions for the development which it felt would take care of its concerns if
<br />; the condi tions were followed by the developer and observed on the final plan to I
<br />,be presented in the future. Conditions upon which preliminary approval was I
<br />._ granted for 20 dwelling units on about 2.5 acres were (1) landscape buffering I
<br />. ,between the south parking lot and single-family. houses to the east; (2) deletion .
<br />'of swimming pool, or its relocation, with open space recreational area provided I
<br />- tin its place or in centrally located position with ample screening; (3) provi-
<br />sion for children's play area; (4) resolution of Public Works Department concerns
