Agenda Item Title

Title

An Ordinance Granting an Extension of the Waiver and Suspension of the Right of Way Obstruction Permit Fee and Parking Obstruction Fee for the Planned Development at 261 Washington Boulevard.

Overview

Overview

Due to site constraints and to maintain safe and passable conditions for pedestrians and vehicles on Washington Boulevard throughout construction, Village Parking Lot 46E is needed to ensure construction traffic has adequate ingress/egress to/from the rear of the development site. Staff recommends the Village extend the waiver and suspension of the Right of Way Obstruction Permit Fee and Parking Meter Obstruction Fee from July 1, 2022, through September 30, 2022.

Recommendation

Recommendation

Approve the Ordinance

 

Fiscal Impact

The right of way obstruction permit fee would be $10 per space per day and the parking obstruction fee would be $10 per space per day. If the waiver and suspension of the fees are not granted for the period of July 1, 2022 - September 30, 2022, the total applicable fees owed by the developer would be $36,800.

 

Background

The 261 Washington Boulevard multi-family residential development will be constructed at the southeast corner of Washington Boulevard and Cuyler Avenue. Throughout the course of construction, the developer will have routine construction traffic, including a large crane, on the site. In order to maintain two-way traffic and permit parking on Washington Boulevard, Village staff is requiring the developer to circulate construction traffic to and from the rear of the development site. Additionally, due to the site’s proximity to Percy Julian Middle School, Village staff wanted to minimize any additional vehicular traffic or obstructions near school pedestrian crossings.

 

In order to provide an adequate turning radius for construction traffic at the rear of the development site, Village Parking Lot 46 E, which is located directly south of the site along Cuyler Avenue, will need to be closed for a period of time.

 

Due to the constraints of the development site and staff’s prioritization of maintaining vehicular and pedestrian safety during the course of construction, staff recommended a waiver and suspension of the applicable right of way obstruction permit fee and the parking obstruction fee through June 30, 2022. Due to various delays in obtaining building supplies thus far, the developer has indicated that they will need to obstruct Lot 46E through at least September 30, 2022.

 

Alternatives

The alternative would be to deny the Ordinance, requiring the developer to pay the right of way obstruction permit fee and the parking obstruction fee beginning July 1, 2022.
