Proposed apartment complexes will highlight public hearings on Monday at the Stillwater City Council meeting.

The council is set to consider a request from College Place Properties Stillwater for review and approval of a preliminary planned development for a four-story apartment complex at 132, 136, 140 N. Husband and 131, 133, 135, 137, 139 N. Duncan and 217 W. Miller.

A large portion of the property was previously approved for a townhome planned development in December 2006, but the property was not developed.

The 1.1 acre tract is proposed to have on-site covered parking for all tenants and a second floor courtyard with patio area and a swimming pool. The applicant is also proposing a high dwelling density that city code allows with 88 dwelling units per acre requested.

The Planning Commission recommended approval.

The council will also consider a request for a preliminary planned development to construct a two-story apartment at 114 and 120 S. Duncan.

The request from Lester Skinner-Stillwater Properties proposes eight dwelling units to serve as an extension of the multi-family development under the same ownership to the west.

The Planning Commission recommended approval with the condition that the required parking spaces be provided prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy.

The council will also consider a request from Black Properties for a map amendment to rezone 1020 E. Virginia from CG (general commercial) to RM2 (medium density multi-family).

The property was previously a mobile home park and is not vacant. The applicant had proposed to relocate apartments from the OSU athletic village area to create a multi-family development and possibly mini-storage.

The Planning Commission recommended approval.

The final public hearing will be for a request from GVP Properties for a C16 special use permit to allow for an eating establishment permitting alcoholic beverages at 1919 N. Perkins. The 1.09 acre tract is located at the corner of Perkins and Krayler.

The lot is currently vacant and the applicant has proposed to build a restaurant called Palominos.

The Planning Commission recommended approval with the condition that access easement documents be filed and a copy be provided to staff before a building permit is issued. Staff is also recommending sewer easement documents be filed and provided to the city prior to issuance of a building permit.

The council is set to consider a 10-item consent docket that will include a budget amendment request from the Community Center for $257,000 for replacement of the Winfrey Houston Theater roof and repairs to the ceiling.

The council will also consider a preliminary design update for the reconstruction of University Avenue from Monroe to Knoblock and a preliminary design update for drainage channel improvements from 12th to 14th avenues between Duck and Duncan.

The council is also set to consider a resolution issuing an election proclamation calling for a primary and general election in the city of Stillwater. Vice Mayor Ruth Anne Kennedy and Councilor Hank Moore will see their terms expire in April.

The council will conclude the meeting with an executive session for confidential communication with the city attorney regarding pending litigation, Dedrickson vs. city of Stillwater.

The council meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Hearing Room at the Municipal Building, 723 S. Lewis. The meeting will be aired on cable channel 23.
