LU 17-0028: Boones Ferry Road Nonconformities - Code Amendements

The City is completing the final design for Phase 1 of the Boones Ferry Road (BFR) improvements with construction to begin in 2018. The project will affect 50 properties in the Lake Grove Village Center (LGVC) Overlay District by removing some landscaping and/or parking along their frontages. To minimize complications for property owners and to facilitate replacement of commercial parking lost as a result of the transportation project, the City has offered to:

1.  Help replace lost parking on eight specific sites located at:

  • Mozena Law Office (15835 BFR)
  • Naomi’s Lampshades (19510/19532/19542 BFR)
  • Gubanc’s (16008 BFR)
  • Riccardo’s Ristorante (16035/16045 BFR)
  • Keller Williams Realty (16365 BFR)
  • Jenike Property: Andy Paris Surveyors and Kumon (16055/16067 BFR)
  • US Bank (16480 BFR)
  • Bank of America (16209 Bryant Road)

The map (upper right corner) shows the scope of Phase 1, as well as the five specific properties marked in yellow where replacement parking may not fully comply with code (See Attachment 2).


2.  Amend City code (LGVC Overlay) to allow area lost to right-of-way dedication for the BFR Project to count towards meeting minimum parking and/or landscaping requirements, subject to limitations, when a site redevelops.
