title

A public hearing to receive comments regarding the application for and approval of the fill permit and removal of the floodplain (FP) prefix from approximately 9.40 acres of the current 39.05 acres of land located at 2118 California Crossing Road, within the floodplain of Elm Fork, Fill Permit 19-04 - Financing: No cost consideration to the City

BACKGROUND

 

The property owner at 2118 California Crossing Road along the Elm fork of the Trinity River has applied for a fill permit to remove the 100-year floodplain from approximately 9.40 acres of the current 26.38 acres of floodplain on this property.

A neighborhood meeting was held online on December 18, 2020. Attendees included the property owner, three project developers, one project engineer, and three city staff members. No citizens from the area attended. There has been no objection to the fill permit.

The fill permit application meets all engineering requirements for filling in the floodplain as specified in Part II of the Dallas Development Code, Section 51A-5.105(h).  The applicant has not requested a waiver of any criteria. Accordingly, the City Council should approve this application; or, it may pass a resolution to authorize acquisition of the property under the laws of eminent domain and may then deny the application to preserve the status quo until acquisition.

City Council will be briefed by memorandum regarding this matter on April 23, 2021. <https://dallascityhall.com/government/citymanager/Documents/FY%2020-21%20Memos/Agenda%20item%20PH1%20-%20Fill%20Permit%2019-04%202118%20California%20Crossing_memo_042321.pdf>
