Substitute Bill BL2019-1727

An ordinance to amend Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, the Zoning Ordinance of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, by amending a specific plan district on property located at 206 Vaughn Street and 900, 901, 903, and 908 Meridian Street and 307 and 309 Cleveland Street (3.23 acres), to permit an additional restaurant in a mixed use development, all of which is described herein (Proposal No. 2016SP-024-003).

WHEREAS, Substitute Ordinance No. BL2016-204 (Proposal No. 2016SP-024-001) applied a preliminary Specific Plan (SP) district to the subject property permitting “a maximum of two restaurants” among other uses; and
WHEREAS, procedural Rule 21 of the Metropolitan Council does not preclude the introduction of this ordinance prior to obtaining a recommendation from the Metro Planning Commission because the SP has already been applied to the subject property; and

WHEREAS, it is desirable and appropriate to increase the maximum number of restaurants to three without increasing the size of the development.

Section 3. Be it further enacted, that no other changes to the original SP are intended by this ordinance.

Section 4. Be it further enacted, that uses of this SP shall be as indicated in BL2016-204 with the exception that a maximum of three, not two, restaurants shall be permitted at any one time within the SP.
Section 5. Be it further enacted, that the following conditions shall be completed, bonded or satisfied as specifically required:

1. Comply with all conditions of BL2016-204 as applicable.

2. Final approval for the pool is not granted with approval of this preliminary SP. Final approval may be granted with the final site plan dependent on additional details being provided to staff including finalized location and screening plans.

3. No opaque fencing shall be permitted to screen the pool.

4. Comply with all conditions and requirements of Metro reviewing agencies.

5. The requirements of the Metro Fire Marshal’s Office for emergency vehicle access and adequate water supply for fire protection must be met prior to the issuance of any building permits.

Section 7. Be it further enacted, minor modifications to the preliminary SP plan may be approved by the Planning Commission or its designee based upon final architectural, engineering or site design and actual site conditions. All modifications shall be consistent with the principles and further the objectives of the approved plan. Modifications shall not be permitted, except through an ordinance approved by Metro Council that increase the permitted density or floor area, add uses not otherwise permitted, eliminate specific conditions or requirements contained in the plan as adopted through this enacting ordinance, or add vehicular access points not currently present or approved.
