Update to Solana Boulevard Zoning Case

In our ongoing quest to keep residents and stakeholders informed, Town of Westlake Staff would like to provide you with the very latest on zoning case Z-06-19-17 involving the undeveloped land off Solana Boulevard.

Monday night at the Town's monthly Planning and Zoning meeting, commissioners voted down a proposal for a residential, 61-lot plan (Version 3) by a vote of 4-1, and recommended a newly proposed 56-lot concept plan (Version 4) that is subject to staff recommendations. 

Last night's originally scheduled proposal (Version 3) from the developer, Wilbow Corporation, included 61 residential lots that would be placed on the land, down from 65 as proposed last month (Version 2). These numbers are important because contrary to recent media reports of 66 lots, the proposal began with 65.

That new proposal (Version 3) allowed for a wider buffer area near the Glenwyck Farms neighborhood from what had originally been proposed in Versions 1 & 2 of the plan. In addition, the proposal would have included 17 single story homes closest to Glenwyck Farms, up from 12. The maximum height for those one-story homes would be 18 feet.

The version 3 plan would have also increased open space from 39.8 acres to 40.8 acres as well as deeding 35.6 acres of open space to the Town of Westlake. A proposed setback from Solana Boulevard would have gone from 50 feet to 100 feet.

However, during the meeting, as a result of ongoing negotiations with Glenwyck Farms residents, Wilbow presented for the first time an additional proposal (Version 4) from the one scheduled to be presented to P&Z commissioners (Version 3). During last night's public hearing, some Glenwyck Farms residents expressed that this plan could be an acceptable alternative to previous proposals.

With the 56-lot plan (Version 4) now recommended by P&Z commissioners, the next step is for Town staff to conduct a thorough analysis of any new plan before moving forward with staff recommendations to the council. Once those are made, Town Council could choose to vote on the plan during their November 27th meeting.
