APPLICATION DESCRIPTION
The subdivider is proposing a development of two commercial lots and is proposing to improve a portion of
Pebble Hills Boulevard as a major areterial (110 feet wide). The portion that is proposed measures
approximately 1,104.15 feet in length. Primary access to the subdivision will be from Zaragoza Road.
This subdivision is within Park Zone E-9. This subdivision abuts the 11.029 acre off-site park that was
accepted by City Council on September 25, 2007. The nearest school is Raphael Hernando III Middle
School, which is approximately .37 miles west of the proposed subdivision.
All of the commercial property within this subdivision is subject to the following condition:
   1. That a detailed site development plan be reviewed and approved per the El Paso City Code in effect at
      the time of submittal of the application for detailed site development plan review, prior to the issuance
      of any building permits.
The condition on the property zoned C-2/c states:
   1. That a ten foot (10’) wide landscape buffer with high profile native trees place at ten feet (10’) on
      center, and if Mondale pine trees, fifteen feet (15’) on center, be required along the property line
      abutting any residential zone prior to the issuance of any certificate of occupancy for this parcel.



SUB08-00117                                             1                                        August 14, 2008
The condition on the property south of Pebble Hills that is zoned C-4/c states:
   1. That a 20’ wide landscape buffer with high profile native trees placed at 15’ on center be required
      along the property line abutting any residential use prior to the issuance of certificates of occupancy.

   1. That a twenty-five foot (25’) wide landscape buffer with high profile native trees placed at ten feet
      (10’) on center, and if Mondale pine trees, fifteen feet (15’) on center, be required along the property

In addition, the applicant is requesting a waiver for the gross density used in the parkland calculation rate for
multifamily development by the City Plan Commission per Subdivision Ordinance Section 19.12.030.B.2.
The applicant has provided restrictive covenants in order to avoid having the required park fees calculated at
the maximum density for multi-family development. Per Subdivision Ordinance Section 19.12.030.B.2, the
City Plan Commission may waive the gross density used in the parkland calculation rate for multifamily
development when the subdivider provides deed restrictions, or other legal instrument, showing that the
density permitted within the subdivision is less than the gross density required.
