In response to comments by Mayor Anderson, Mrs. Walter confirmed that Option 1 is in place now with the recommendation to add the parklet at a projected cost to the city of $165,000, with a funding source to be determined. Mr. Knight advised that it could be funded from the Parks Acquisition Fund.

12) Public Hearings c. Request of the City of WinterPark for: • Amendment of the Fee Schedule to re-establish an Affordable HousingFee • RESOLUTION 2246-21 – A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF WINTER PARK, FLORIDA,PROVIDING FOR AN AFFORDABLE AND WORKFORCE HOUSING PLAN; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY, NON- LIMITATION OF AUTHORITY AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE. • Joint Participation Agreement with Habitat for Humanity of Winter Park/Maitland, Inc.

Attorney Ardaman read the resolution by title.

Jeff Briggs,Principal Planner, reviewed these requests relating to the Affordable Housing Program. He responded to questions regarding the fee and use of funds and stated that automatic renewal of the agreement does not commit to funding unless it is approved in each budget year. He provided the history of fee, reasons for suspending the fee and use of fees for improvements of properties under operation of Housing Authority.

Commissioner Cooper suggested that the agreement return to the Commission for approval in five years rather than having an automatic renewal.

Motion made by Commissioner Sullivan to approve the resolution, amendment of the fee schedule to re-establish the affordable housing fee and approve the joint participation agreement; seconded by Commissioner DeCiccio.

Motion made by Commissioner Cooper to amend the resolution to incorporate the language from the CRA Plan that “the city will deliberately avoid concentrating a particular type of housing or economic class of household in specific areas. To do so would be contrary to the redevelopment goals of the city as well as unfair to the households in neighborhoods. Home ownership and single-family homes is the city’s preference.”

Mr. Briggs stated that there is no definition of concentration and that it can be construed differently when applied to buildings, an area, a block or the city limits. The intent is to make sure projects are single-family homes and townhouse.

Commissioner Cooper said she feels the focus should be on ownership, either single-family or low density and that affordable housing should be expanded and extended throughout the community.

Motion was revised by Commissioner Cooper to state that single-family or low density is the city’s preference; seconded by Mayor Anderson.

Motion made by Commissioner Cooper to amend the resolution to avoid concentrating all of our affordable housing in one specific area. (Withdrawn)

Mr. Briggs stated that, economically, it may not be feasible due to the high cost of lots in some areas of the city and as a result, affordable lots may be concentrated in certain areas. Discussion followed on impact of concentrated affordable housing and Mayor Anderson suggested a strategic discussion around workforce and affordable housing and withhold that piece to discuss as part of strategic planning.Commissioner Cooperwithdrew her motion.

Mayor Anderson commented on the automatic renewal of the five-year term and Mr. Briggs stated they would revise the agreement to exclude automatic renewal.

Commissioner Cooper clarified her motion was to allow both single-family and townhomes.

Hal George, Habitat for Humanity and Chair of Winter Park Housing Authority, thanked the city for its support of Habitat for Humanity and spoke on its projects and benefits to the community and stakeholders. He advised that there are opportunities for affordable housing funds to be used toward Housing Authority property improvements.

Andrew Bachrach and Kara Wilcox, Trinity Prep students, shared their experiences as volunteers with Habitat for Humanity and thanked the city for their support.

Upon a roll call vote on the motion to amend the resolution to include the city’s preference for single-family or townhomes, Mayor Anderson and Commissioners Sullivan, DeCiccio, Cooper and Weaver voted yes. Motion carried unanimously with a 5 – 0 vote.

Upon a roll call vote on the main motion as amended, Mayor Anderson and Commissioners Sullivan, DeCiccio, Cooper and Weaver voted yes. Motion carried unanimously with a 5-0 vote.

11) Action Items Requiring Discussion (continued) b. Discuss the implementation of the Harper Street on-street parking adjacent to the new Library and Events Center and consider addition of 81 grass parking spaces south of site.

Mr. Knight stated that as part of the Library and Event Center project, the contractor is preparing to begin construction of parking on Harper Street; however, staff is recommending as an alternative creating a grass lot south of the pond near the Lake Island Recreation Center to create 81 spaces for overflow parking for the Center as well events at the playing fields. He pointed out that the main parking lot meets code requirements for the Center and responded to questions regarding parking needs.

Commissioner Weaver proposed eliminating some parking spaces in the grass lot to avoid demolition of the Lake Island Rec Center and reduce the cost.

Mr. Knight advised that a decision on this proposal is necessary since the contractor is ready to begin construction of the on-street parking in a couple of weeks and needs to adjust their schedule if the parking is removed from the project. He added that the completion of the Center is not anticipated until the end of the year and said that if on- street parking or the grass parking are not constructed at this time, either or could be constructed at a later date.

Discussion followed on parking demands, options, timing of planned parking improvements on Harper and Comstock and impact on the Library and Event Center project. Consensus was to remove the on-street parking on HarperStreet and not move forward with the green space parking at this time.

Motion made by Mayor Anderson to table this matter to the next Commission meeting to obtain data and determine shortages and delay the start of the start of the construction of the on-street parking on Harper Street. (Failed for lack of second)

Motion made by Commissioner Weaver to delete Harper Street parking from Library construction; seconded by Commissioner Sullivan. There were no public comments. Upon a roll call vote, Mayor Anderson and Commissioners Sullivan, DeCiccio and Weaver voted yes. Commissioner Cooper voted no. Motion carried with a 4 - 1 vote.

12) Public Hearings b. Request of Lake Spier Development LLC for: Conditional Use approval to allow for the development of ten two-story townhouses on the 1.28 acres at 1915 S. Lakemont Avenue, zoned R-2.

Jeff Briggs, Principal Planner, gave a presentation on this request for conditional use approval which is needed to determine whether conditions are necessary to ensure compatibility with the adjacent neighborhood. He reviewed the plans including stormwater retention, access for public safety vehicles and access to prevent cut- through vehicle and pedestrian traffic to the adjacent neighborhood. The Planning and Zoning Board recommended approval with two conditions:

1. No motorized watercraft use, mooring, storing, tying up or access shall be permitted upon or from the property or the property’s docks. At the time of platting, a Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions shall be recorded in the public records containing language acceptable to and enforceable by the City incorporating this restriction as a deed restriction binding upon the land.

2. The emergency accessgate to Lake Spier Drive to be provided as described in the plans approved with the conditional use shall be for the City of Winter Park’s emergency vehicle use only and there shall be no pedestrian gate or other access point provided between the development and Lake Spier Drive. The homeowners’ association and lot owners shall not have access rights through the emergency access gate. The developer, at its expense, shall install the emergency access gate, emergency knox box and key box compliant with NFPA requirements. At the time of platting, a Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions shall be recorded in the public records containing language acceptable to and enforceable by the City incorporating this restriction as a deed restriction binding upon the land. Further, the final plat shall dedicate to the City an emergency access easement for the City’s use of the emergency access gate and setting forth the prohibition of access to Lake Spier Drive by the homeowners’ association and lot owners. Mr. Briggs responded to questions regarding surrounding zoning, pedestrian gate, utilities.

Commissioner Weaver expressed his concern regarding the impact to the shoreline during construction and dock placement and suggested that docks be moved in order to protect the shoreline and natural vegetation. Mr. Briggs advised that the Lakes and Waterways Board review is required for dock placement that the applicant can respond to shoreline concerns during construction.

Mr. Briggs responded to additional questions regarding lakefront setbacks, emergency vehicle access, walkability and connectivity and advised the cost of pedestrian crosswalk with signalization is approximately $15,000.

Motion made by Commissioner Cooper to approve the requests with conditions approved by Planning and Zoning Board; seconded by Commissioner Sullivan.

Motion made by Commissioner Cooper to amend the motion to require the contractor add a crosswalk with flashers and any necessary sidewalks that Planning believes are necessary to allow residents to cross Lakemont safely; seconded by Commissioner Sullivan.

Motion made by Commissioner Weaver to amend the motion to require a 4-inch, 4-foot wide sidewalk from property line to property line along Lakemont, which would provide a continuous sidewalk along Lakemont as properties redevelop to the north and south; seconded by Commissioner Cooper. (withdrawn)

Mr. Briggs advised that the amendment to require sidewalks is not necessary because city code requires sidewalks from property line to property line with a new project. What is new to this is the crosswalk.

Commissioner Weaver withdrew his amendment.

Bronce Stephenson, Director of Planning and Transportation, clarified that this portion of Lakemont is on a curve so line of sight becomes an issue which will require the crosswalk at a location determined to be safe through a study.

Motion made by Commissioner Sullivan that the area from the pond edge to the lakeshore be natural, unirrigated plantings to protect the lake from run-off; seconded by Commissioner Weaver.

Shane Acevedo, property owner and applicant, 1817 Loch Berry Road, agreed to move the docks to the east and to natural, unirrigated plantings and stated they intend to leave the seawall. He explained changes to the plans made in consideration of the neighbors and said they are committed to the crosswalk.

Debbie Ivie, 1841 Lake Spier Drive, spoke in opposition due to density, incompatibility, environment and intrusion into neighborhood. She asked that Commission consider allowing only one boat dock, requiring very low and ambient lights, prohibiting spotlights, requiring sewer hookup and that the conditions be codified in HOA documents and recorded with the plat.

Edward Ivie, 1841 Lake Spier Drive, asked that the HOA documents include requirements for a fence, maintenance of the access gate, and that when the gate malfunctions it remain closed and include a deadline for repairs.

Susan Shaw, 2020 St. George Avenue, said she believesLake Spier is not under Winter Park’s jurisdiction. She expressed concern about the continued health of lake and asked that the city take steps so that the lake comes under its jurisdiction and enforcement.

Mr. Briggs stated that Lake Spier is in the city’s jurisdiction and city ordinances apply to all lakes in Winter Park. He stated that the conditions will be included in the HOA documents and recorded with plat.

Rick Wilson, 1391 Lake Spier Drive, spoke about sewer lines, connection and ease of maintenance if they are within rights-of-way. He requested that sidewalks be extended to Barker and supported the crosswalks, a solid emergency access gate and time limit to repair the gate.

There were no other public comments.

Mr. Acevedo stated that the lighting plan complies with city code. He said that a custom horizontal fence will be installed along the perimeter of the property, and that there will be two docks on Lake Spier, one for launching non-motorized watercraft and another for sitting or fishing. He said he would provide a solid gate to restrict lighting impact.

Motion made by Mayor Anderson to amend the motion to require a solid emergency accessgate; seconded by Commissioner Cooper.
