Jim Kellison of Kelco Services, LLC, representing ownership of the project, stepped forward.
addressed some of the concerns that the Commission brought up:
1) The lighting on the rear of the buildings was to light the door areas for security purposes, not to encourage lighting that may be offensive to the neighbors.
will work with Staff to determine what type of lighting they would like to have.
The lighting will be on a time clock so it can be adjusted depending on what the neighbors and the Police Department will settle on.
2) Suite sizes will be about 1,200 sq. ft. each.
said they can have two or three suites combined and still have the front doors meet the code requirements for exiting, so there are no issues with rear exits in the future.
stated that the plantings there will be 6-10 feet high over a period of time.
They will work with Staff for vertical elements along the back of the building.
stated that some of the retail stores that he's
been in conversation with are a women's clothing boutique, a dentist, a chiropractor, jewelry store and a coffee shop with a bakery.
stated that they will work with Staff and the coffee shop to create a patio area with colored concrete and/or patterning.
