Item 7. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE AUDIENCE.
There were no communications from the audience.
Item 8. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL.
Councilmember Carol Suter had no comments at this time.
Councilman Wayne Beer stated he had the occasion to be in attendance in the Emergency Operations Center following the recent storm from roughly 3:30 AM until approximately going home time late that evening. Councilman Beer said it was an enlightening experience to observe the operations of the Emergency Operating Center. There was a team of people who did an outstanding job of managing the efforts of the storm management. Councilman Beer extended his gratitude to City Manager Kirk Davis, who in his opinion, is an outstanding crisis manager. City Manager Davis did a good job! Councilman Beer said all of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff operated in an extremely professional and efficient manner. There was no “one-upmanship”, which can oftentimes happen in a situation such as this. Everyone had his part to play, and everyone played the part he had to play, and this all came to be because of good planning. There was a good plan in place and it was carried through based upon that plan. These plans are also rehearsed, with tabletop exercises at least once per year. Councilman Beer said without a good plan and without having rehearsed a good plan, the efforts the City made would not have occurred as they did. The City Manager and staff are to be highly commended.
City Manager Kirk Davis expressed his thanks and said a lot of staff members are involved. We are getting pretty good at this, because we have been through it about three times. Everyone does work together in all the departments. We had a full call-out within an hour, and we laid out a pretty good plan. City Manager Davis expressed his appreciation to Kansas City, Missouri, Clay County, and our own staff, and all the people sitting behind him. They came in and jumped in right away. They knew what to do, where to go, and they knew what the plan is, which makes it a lot easier, especially in the first hour, when you have about six fires, communications systems are down, street lights are down, and power lines are down in intersections, and we don’t know if anyone has been hurt. We were doing the search and rescue and trying to respond to all the other needs we had. It is pretty chaotic, but it is a managed chaos. City Manager Davis extended his compliments to all the people sitting around him and behind him. They know what to do and they did a very good job.
Councilman Les Smith stated he wished to echo Councilman Beer’s sentiments. Councilman Smith said he “hit the streets” himself at about 3:30 AM, following the storm, and it didn’t matter what street he turned down to check on folks he knows, there was either Police, Fire, Paramedics, Public Works, or Parks crews. It is just amazing, and the plan worked very well. Councilman Smith said this was one of those defining moments for our community – not just in the staff response, but also in the response in the way neighbors are truly helping neighbors, and the way the communities have come to our aid. Councilman Smith said he was in a motel room the night before last in Oklahoma and heard about all the people who were killed in the tornados in Oklahoma over the weekend, and it still just amazes him that we have not had to deal with that, and we are so very fortunate. Councilman Smith stated good words go not only to City Manager Davis and City staff, but it also restores a little bit of faith in the folks in our community.
City Manager Davis stated demolition began today with two structures. The City had about 65 volunteers on Saturday morning who helped in the neighborhoods. Assistant City Manager Scott Wingerson did a really nice job with David Pieronnet in organizing the volunteers. It was a “well oiled machine”. The brush site at Public Works will be open until the first weekend in June, with the exception of Memorial Day weekend. Residents are encouraged to take their brush to this site. The clean up is going very well. We are going to probably be through the City one time by the end of the week. Public Works Director Chuck Williams said we are making great progress relative to picking up brush, and we have had 3,300 residential loads at the brush site. The brush drop-off hours are 8:00 Am to 5:00 PM through the week and Saturday and Sunday.
Mayor Pro Tem Carol Rudi extended her best wishes to everyone who has been affected by this storm event, and hope that they all have found places to live, at least for a temporary time. Mayor Pro Tem Rudi thanked all City staff, and said she knows everyone is working long hours, long days, and more than just their five days per week, and they are getting all kinds of phone calls – from glad you are around, to you don’t do enough. Mayor Pro Tem Rudi said she knows how hard it is to field those kinds of questions, when you are really tired. Mayor Pro Tem Rudi stated she really appreciates the help that Staff is giving all the citizens.
Mayor Mark Revenaugh stated when he went back after the initial shock of the damage, he noticed that not only was there Gladstone personnel, but on almost every corner, there was someone from another area. There were people from North Kansas City, Liberty, Platte County, and the Clay County Sheriff’s Patrol. All of our neighbors were coming in to help, in addition to the folks who just showed up last Saturday to give additional help. This is one of the things that sets the Northland apart, and Gladstone in particular, is the fact that we truly care about each other and we show that just like we did the night of the tornado, when the Fire staff in their full gear, and it was fairly warm out, were going into some of the demolished homes off of 76th and Euclid to help people that could not get in themselves, because it was too dangerous, and hauling out all their belongings in laundry baskets. People had nothing that was not still in their homes. The Fire Department was just incredible in how they took things out of the homes for the residents. The Police were at every point protecting the property.
Mayor Revenaugh said he noticed north of us, in Kansas City, some of the houses were robbed because the police did not secure the area, and there was not one incident of that in our community. Mayor Revenaugh said Interim Public Safety Director Mike Hasty is to be commended for the job he did coordinating all the support staff. Mayor Revenaugh asked if anything had been heard from the Governor.
City Manager Davis replied that apparently he has issued a declaration in the form of Executive Order 817, which is an amendment to Executive Order 814, which dealt with flooding in some parts of Missouri. We are trying to confirm that information now. If that holds true, we are pleased with that, and now we need to get some potential Federal assistance.
Mayor Revenaugh asked when we would find out, and doesn’t the Governor request Federal assistance?
City Manager Davis said it has to go up through the chain of command, and he does not have a time frame for this.
Item 9. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE CITY MANAGER.
City Manager Davis said the Household Hazardous Waste Program is going to be held this Saturday at Happy Rock Park, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon, but really it is 8:00 AM to whenever we service the first approximately 200 vehicles. There is a capacity limit. City Manager Davis encouraged everyone to utilize this program. City Manager Davis said the All America City practice would be tomorrow night at 7:00 PM in the Community Center. Participants need to wear their assigned shirts.
Item 10. on the Agenda. SECOND READING BILL 08-14, approving a Site Plan Revision in a CP-1 Zone for property located at 6450 North Prospect.
Councilman Wayne Beer moved to place Bill 08-14 on Second and Final Reading. Mayor Pro Tem Carol Rudi seconded.
Mayor Pro Tem Carol Rudi stated she is still concerned about the hours going until midnight in that location; even though the entire area is allowed for those midnight hours. This really gets into the Building Permit, which is next. Mayor Pro Tem Rudi said as for the stripe that goes all around the building – she does not feel we need that much orange.
Councilmember Carol Suter said this issue has been discussed for some time, and she has been torn in both directions, and has heard input from the Planning Commission members and members of the community, and from the proponents. So far from what she has observed there is a lack of enthusiasm for the project as opposed to strong opposition to it. People would really like it to be something other than an auto parts store. Councilmember Suter said she appreciates the applicant’s energy in trying to accommodate the design needs and the community neighborhood issues that are surrounding this and the developer’s response to all of these things. Councilmember Suter said she agreed it would be nice if we could have a number of upscale shops, but the reality is that Gladstone is an absolutely wonderful middle class community; we are not Riss Lake or Briar Cliff or a high income neighborhood, so the demographics rule. Retailers are going to put the kind of facilities in our community that work for our community, so it is probably unlikely that we would have a whole lot of opportunity for the high-end kind of shops.
Councilmember Suter said she is more concerned about the available space in some of the new projects that have gone up at Plaza 57 and right across the street from this project, where there is available space. This project, itself, is not fully occupied as it is, and so she has gone back and forth between if she was looking for a place to start a new operation, she would probably be more likely to look at a place that has a higher occupancy, as opposed to places where there are vacancies. Councilmember Suter said in thinking about what is in the best interest of the community around this project she thinks it makes a better selling point that we have viable businesses going that are making money that would encourage her to bring her business here as opposed to looking at a lot of available space that isn’t being utilized. The kind of building this is encourages her. Councilmember Suter said she is worried about the economy, and a recession, and whether starting any new business is smart at the moment. Councilmember Suter said she looks at it both ways. If the business goes in and it’s successful, then that is good, because it says Gladstone is a good place to bring your business because you can make money. Councilmember Suter said if it goes in and it is not successful because of the recession, the developer has achieved building an appropriate kind of building that can be used with other kinds of retail, which strongly influences her. The orange stripe can come off and it can be something else. There would be developed property for reuse, as opposed to sitting there with a vacant space, hoping that someone will come along with a great idea. Councilmember Suter said she believes to do something is better than to do nothing, and the ideal probably cannot be achieved, so a really good effort at something that might succeed is weighing strongly in her mind.
Councilman Smith thanked City Council members for allowing him the time to review the material the last couple of weeks, and said there are three of them at the dais who might at least need to think about doing it a little bit differently. Councilman Smith said he has read everything there is to read on this project back to 2000. In 2005, at the Planning Commission and the Council level, from the developer to the developer’s representatives, we then assured the residents of the adjoining neighborhood and even beyond that, in that we basically said no, we can’t listen to everything you are saying because we have a greater good to look at, which is what’s best for the City as a whole. It even states in the Ordinance “in the best interest of the City of Gladstone”.
Councilman Smith stated he wanted to remind everyone that the developer fought hardest for this pad site to be what it is now; that was their biggest single fight was for this pad site. Councilman Smith said so, we are not changing the rules, and he is not suggesting we change the rules on the developer in midstream; we are asking the developer to build according to what they asked for. Councilman Smith said he was speaking for himself only, of course. We assured the people, and these are the developer’s own words, “to be an upscale development”. We assured the neighborhood that the buildings would be compatible and that it would look very nice. Councilman Smith said if you look at the photos that were presented by staff and you look at that building, it is not compatible by look. They assured us, including the architect, that it would not only be compatible by look, but it would also be compatible by material type that the buildings were constructed out of on the exterior, and it is not.
Councilman Smith continued by saying at both the Planning Commission level, and the City Council level, Assistant City Manager Wingerson read specifically what businesses would be allowed in a C-1 zone, and that was a very convincing list. We obviously know now that auto parts sales, retail sales are now allowed in a C-1 list; that is not what we promised the people in this particular neighborhood – so what does all that mean? Councilman Smith stated this is not about what Auto Zone or retail auto parts are, it is what it isn’t. What it isn’t – if you go back all the way to Gladstone on the Move, the Village Center Master Plan process, the ongoing Comprehensive Plan process, we have been told the same thing over and over again by all of the citizens involved in those processes. Councilman Smith said he talked to Jeannie Moore, for example, who was the KPA (Key Performance Area) Chair for the business and economic, this is what they railed against. They said look, if we don’t take a stand and want to start doing something different, we are never going to have anything different. Councilman Smith said, folks, it is time for us to buy what we have been trying to sell, and I am sorry that circumstances may have changed in the last three years to where the intended use is not viable for the developer on this pad site, but I would rather wait another three years than make a thirty year mistake. We have been from David Gale, to our consultants, to our staff, to our citizens, been implored time and time again to look at what’s good for the community for the next 25 to 30 years. Councilman Smith said that this to him is short term. We have a bigger picture that we need to look at.
Councilman Smith stated what are the three main issues, and again, with all due respect to the developers, they have done a marvelous job in what they have built so far. Councilman Smith said Auto Zone - nothing personal, it is not what you are, it’s what you aren’t, and quite frankly, the only reason I have spent so much time on this, is out of respect for Mr. Hall. The first issue is the site plan itself. There are some various issues that go along with the site plan approval, and if you read through the minutes of what Mr. Wingerson has said, he has time and again said this application technically meets the City’s requirements. It does technically meet the City’s requirements. We have also seen him talk about the colors are compatible. There is a lot more to building than just colors. One comment was that the developer of Auto Zone at this particular parcel has attempted to mimic the design of the existing buildings. That is not a ringing endorsement from our staff, that they actually are in the compliance that we are looking for. One of the selling points that was also addressed at the Council meeting on February 28, 2005, was Mr. Wingerson read a letter into the record that concluded that the development is less aggressive in terms of square footage development of the buildings than most other areas along that corridor. Keep in mind that we are asking to go from a 944 square foot building to a 7,381 square foot building.
Councilman Smith said another issue is the use that he already talked about, which is the synergy that we talk about creating in our new developments, and what everyone who has participated in the process in this community in the last two years has asked us to do. We have the use, we have the site plan and then last but not least we have compatibility. It just doesn’t work. This pad site is now being brought into the classification of a retail building. We specifically, and over and over, and there are at least three comments through the Planning Commission and Council meeting minutes of each and every one of these issues – promising the neighborhood and the City of what is going to happen. This is absolutely and positively not it. We even went so far as to in our motion to approve this in 2005, to ensure that the architectural compatibility would be there for all points in the future. Councilman Smith read that the developer shall draft restricted covenants applicable to the entire site, at minimum these restrictions shall be designed to ensure architectural compatibility between all segments of the development. These restrictions shall address overall scale, massing, materials, colors and general design philosophy. These restrictions shall be submitted to staff and approved by the City Council prior to recording and prior to issuance of development permits.
Councilman Smith stated we went way out there, and he does not think this Council will ever recall us actually approving any covenants and restrictions on developments; that is how important it was to maintain that compatibility. Councilman Smith said his last point is that there is also a tendency to compare an approved plan with a proposed plan, and that was discussed at great length at the Planning Commission level and also at our Public Hearing by a representative for the developer. This particular site plan, if you look at the overall protection of noise, sound and lights to the adjoining neighborhood is a step backwards. Councilman Smith said we required, and let’s just call it what it was at that time - it was to be a Sonic drive through restaurant - we flip flopped the entire plan, so there would be no service whatsoever on the back side adjoining the neighborhood. We required the developer at that time to build a 12-foot high wall, not the retaining wall from the creek up, a 12-foot high wall to buffer this pad site from the neighborhood. It was to be 12 feet high, the entire length of the lot and planted aggressively on the back side with evergreens and so forth. Councilman Smith said he does not know that you could have driven a tank through it, let alone could have seen anything through it.
Councilman Smith stated this particular site plan allows for 20 parking spaces between the building and M-1 Highway, and which parking lot is directly open to the neighbors to the north. We asked the applicant if they would be willing to construct a wall at our Public Hearing, and the answer was they’d be willing to look at some plantings or something. Plantings or something for a 20 parking space parking lot versus a 12-foot high solid wall for one drive lane, with no parking abutting it, is a step backwards. Councilman Smith said we can use discretion on this, but if you go back and look at the record, and he would be happy to show what he has, he used a whole highlighter on comments – promises made by the developer, promises made by the rep, promises made by the staff, and promises made by this City Council to the residents of Gladstone, he finds it very difficult to find anything at all to “hang his hat on” to approve this revision. If we have to wait for something to come back around, then so be it. That is what we have been preaching; that is what we have been selling, and we have an opportunity to buy it. Councilman Smith suggested to Council members to get their pictures, and although this is not what the residents see from the side, comparing what the residents in that neighborhood look at now, look at what’s on the approved plan, versus looking at this; we are doing the folks a disservice. He cannot imagine anyone thinks that is compatible with this.
Mayor Revenaugh thanked Councilman Smith for his thoughtful statements. Mayor Revenaugh said the only correction he would like to point out is that this Council didn’t all approve the site, because two of us were not on the Council at the time.
Councilman Smith agreed, and said sometimes circumstances change in doing the business of a community. We have to make changes, but if you go through the minutes, literally, almost a dozen residents were skeptical of what was approved would not get built, because they thought that someone would change the rules on them. We may not be individual Council members, but we are the Council of the City. We made very specific promises to a very specific group of folks as to what would happen in their back yard, and we should have some duty to uphold that. Councilman Smith said to take it a step forward on the compatibility issue, when you look across the street at Prospect Plaza, it was redeveloped very architecturally different than just a rectangular block building. We have a picture of Plaza 57, which is architecturally different. You can look across the street at the dance studio, look across the street at Commerce Bank, which is maybe not the most attractive bank in the world, it at least has some architectural integrity to it. There was even some discussion at great length on the Scola project and about what those buildings would look like, and comments were made for those buildings just like we told these folks, the buildings were going to be of a residential nature; so, when you look out your back window, you are liable to see some components familiar with residential construction, which is why you see the different roofs and pitches and those sorts of things.
