Portable buildings approved for LTISD
LTISD Requested a Special Use Permit for two portable buildings to accommodate the need for extra space at the Lake Travis Educational Development Center located at 607 RR 620 N near Kollmeyer Drive. Each portable building will be 1,600sf and connected to the main building by aluminum landings, ramps, stairs. The portable buildings would be allowed for no more than 5 years. ZAPCO recommended approval of the Special Use Permit at their April 3, 2019 Meeting. City Council unanimously approved this request at their April 15, 2019 City Council meeting. 

Tuscan Village Storage unit denied
Tuscan Village 2 Planned Unit Development consists of 17.431 acres located off of Lohmans Crossing Road west of Lohmans Spur near the new Police Facility. The developer requested an amendment to Tuscan Village 2 Planned Unit Development (PUD) regarding a change in land use from office/retail to storage unit for Parcel F, 1.486 acres. The proposed amendment would include amending the PUD standards in this parcel to “storage” use standards, allowing for 80,000sf of “storage” use, and update the parking requirements for “storage” use. ZAPCO heard this request on April 3, 2019 and recommended denial of the requested PUD 2 amendment. City Council approval would require a 2/3 majority vote of approval given the ZAPCO recommendation. The applicant requested that the item be pulled from the City Council agenda for April 15, 2019.  
Quick Trip Special Use Permit postponed
Quick Trip Corp. requested a Special Use Permit to allow for a convenience store at the southeast intersection of RR 620 and Debba Drive. The property is currently zoned C-1 (office/retail), however, a special use permit is required for convenience store use. ZAPCO unanimously recommended City Council approval of this request at their April 3, 2019 ZAPCO meeting. Debba Drive has considerable traffic issues today and road conditions have deterioriated. Adding a drive onto Debba for the convenience store circulation and access would put further pressure on an already untenable situation. City Council heard the request on April 15, 2019 and voted to postpone the SUP request for 60 days so that the applicant, City Council and City Staff could work together on addressing traffic concerns surrounding this site and proposed use.
