Subject:    Consider - Colony Madrid Partial Final Replat
Prepared for: Tiffany Foster
Prepared by: Emilio Levario, Planning and Development Services

Consider approving Colony Madrid Partial Final Replat, being approximately 1.07 acres located in the 1500 Block of Barcelona Way, legally described as Lots 39-52 of the Colony Madrid Subdivision, Harris County, Texas.
This final replat is proposing to create an approximately 1.07 acre subdivision containing nine (9) lots and one (1) block. 

Applicant is requesting the replatting of  fourteen (14) existing townhome lots into nine (9) larger lots for single-family homes.  The original 14 lots were a part of the Colony Madrid plat which was recorded in 1972. The original nine (9) lots would not have met current requirements for lot depth or lot square footage. The subject area is vacant.

The proposed replat increases the lot sizes to 50 feet by 100 feet which is larger than the townhome lots to the west; the townhome lots are approximately 3,000 square feet in are.  The existing properties to the east are larger and include a mix of single-family homes and quadplex units; those lots average 17,000 square feet in area.  The proposal for Colony Madrid provides a scaled transition in area and use.

The subdivision ordinance does have a provision in "Sec. 126-251 - Requirements for developments falling outside existing categories” that provides the Commission with opportunities to adjust requirements, such as lot size, in developments that are proposed which do not fit existing categories. The Commission could approve the final platting of the proposed Colony Madrid Partial Final Replat with the additional width of the lots with the understanding that the lots will have the current depth and less than 5400 square feet of area.if it determines: (1) the proposed use is appropriate and reasonable for the area; (2) approval will not be detrimental to the public health, safety, and welfare; (3) the effect of the development will not prevent orderly subdivision of other land in the vicinity; and (4) the development will not cause the city to be required to provide city services at a level above that required in other subdivisions.

The application has been reviewed by the Development Review Committee, which found that the application meets the minimum requirements of the Code of Ordinances.
