A request from John Eldredge on behalf of Verizon Wireless for approval of a cell tower for the Peerless Wireless Communications Facility at 1455 Stuart Ave. N.W. was delayed. The issue will return to planning commissioners after the Cleveland/Bradley Greenway Board, Cleveland Historic Preservation Commission and representatives of Verizon Wireless agree on aesthetics of the 80-foot “stealth” tower. The communications antennas will be hidden from plain view from the Greenway and residents of the historic neighborhood. Members of the historic commission and Greenway board are tasked with choosing colors and materials on the exterior of the tower.
In new business, planning commissioners unanimously approved the following agenda items:
- Request by The Retreat at Spring Creek to amend the PUD8 zoning district to allow for multi-family residential development.
- Request by Kimberly Jones to abandon an unopened alley running from Jordan Avenue N.W. to Chambliss Avenue N.W. between 17th Street N.W. and 18th Street N.W.
- Request by D & S Custom Homes for final plat approval of Stonebriar Lot 23, a townhome subdivision of about .31 acres. Stonebriar subdivision is located on the south end of Tasso Lane near 20th Street.
- Request by Steve Birger Construction Company for final plat approval of Stonebriar Lot 27, a townhome subdivision of about .32 acres.
- Request by Greg Calfee Builders for final plat approval of Stonebriar Lot 24, a townhome subdivision of about .29 acres; and preliminary plat approval of Stonebriar lot 28.
- Request by Joe Pesterfield for preliminary plat approval of Woodridge Phase 2, a plat of about 3.12 acres.
