10/20/18 FLD Meeting

UPDATE from Mr Mackey, the architect: “We will be utilizing the FLD process for this project, but the meeting on the 20th is for neighbors to discuss the request for reduction of the parking at 3 of the proposed properties from 2 required spaces to 1 space. If the reduction is approved, then we will start the formal FLD process and have the necessary meetings for that. If the reduction is not approved, then we will have to redesign the site plan and then start the formal FLD process.”

The original post: There will be a meeting Saturday, October 20, at 10 AM at 811 S 4th Ave to discuss a proposed FLD project for a single family residential development. What is an FLD? It stands for “Flexible Lot Development” and appears in Article 8.7.3. of the Unified Development Code. The four new bungalows at E 18th St and S 5th Ave are an example of an earlier FLD project.

If this new project is approved, the three parcels at 811-821 S 4th Ave will be developed into seven parcels and the property owner will build  five single-family residences. There are already two historic houses on the property.

Architect Bill Mackey’s letter announcing the meeting is below. The meeting is open to interested neighbors and Armory Park residents.
