Nancy Hanson of Foundry Commercial (formerly CNL) requests a one year renewal of a previously-issued temporary use permit to allow parking on the unimproved site at 503 S. Orange Avenue (southeast corner of Orange Ave and Anderson St). The gravel parking would be used by the tenants of the adjacent office building at 520 S. Magnolia Ave. and for overflow valet parking for the DPAC.
Below is the timeline of approvals for this site:
- July 24, 2006: CC approved a temporary use permit for the parking lot (attached, and conditions of approval are below). It expired 8/15/08.
- July 22, 2013: CC approved another temp. use permit (attached, and conditions of approval are below). It was set to expire April 2014 or the official opening date of DPAC, whichever occurs first (DPAC opened Nov. 2014). (LDC2013-00208)
- Dec. 2013: CNL applied for an Engineering permit (ENG2013-01800) for "Improvements required by the City of Orlando (site work only)." In Oct. 2015, the applicant withdrew the application.
The 2006 approval included the following conditions of approval:
- the site shall be covered with either crushed concrete or gravel
- A concrete or asphalt apron shall be installed at the entry point(s) to the CNL Dickinson Parcel
- A 30” tall continuous hedge shall be installed along the perimter of both the S. Orange Avenue and Anderson Street sides of the the CNL Dickinson Parcel
- Wheel stops shall be installed on the site for each parking space created
- The site shall be maintained at all times, with regular trimming of the hedge, grooming of the crushed concrete or gravel surface, and removal of debris.
- The site will be appropriately signed indicating what vehicles may be parked there.
- At the termination date of this use as described above, if the property is not to be redeveloped within 6 months of this date or is not being used as a staging area for the purpose of redevelopment, then the curb cuts, paved aprons, crushed concrete or gravel surface material, wheel stops and all signage shall be removed and the property sodded.
The 2013 approval repeated the above conditions of approval and added the following:
- The applicant must apply and obtain proper Engineering Permits. The application for the engineering permits must include site plans that are signed and sealed by a professional engineer. At a minimum, these plans must include:
- The viburnum hedge on the perimeter of the parking area.
- Re-establish the gravel with additional 57 stone.
- Proper erosion control measures.
- Further stormwater restoration as identified by the City Engineer.
- No parking should exist south of the hedge that was planted when the parking lot was originally constructed.
- At the end of the Temporary Use period, all of the improvements must be removed (to include any fencing) and the site will be seeded or sodded.
Approve the requested Temporary Use Permit for a period of one year (until Nov. 14, 2017) with the option of two one-year administrative extensions, subject to the following conditions:
1. All conditions of the 2006 and 2013 approval must be complied with or continue to be complied with.
2. No parking is allowed on the southern quarter of the property, beyond the extent of the gravel. To prevent parking, a continuous barrier shall be installed consisting of either potted plants, hedging, landscaping timbers, or similar.
3. Measures must be taken by the property owner to ensure no unauthorized parking occurs on the subject property, such as posting security personnel and/or blocking off access during non-parking nights.
