BACKGROUND

 

The property owner at 8902 Guernsey Lane along Bachman Branch has applied for a fill permit to remove the 100-year floodplain from approximately 0.12 acres of the current  0.6 acres of floodplain on this property.

 

A neighborhood meeting was held virtually through Webex on March 25, 2021. Attendees included the property owner, one Cardinal Strategies engineer, and seven city staff members. Five 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.

 

PRIOR ACTION/REVIEW (COUNCIL, BOARDS, COMMISSIONS)

 

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%20PH2%20April%2028%202021%20-%20Fill%20Permit%2019-06%20-%208902%20Guernsey%20Lane%20Dallas%20TX%2075220_memo_042321.pdf>
