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 2.1 acres of the current 13.0 acres of floodplain located at 8700 Military Parkway, within the floodplain of Prairie Creek, Fill Permit 21-01 - Financing: No cost consideration to the City

BACKGROUND

 

The property owner at 8700 Military Parkway along Prairie Creek has applied for a fill permit to remove the 100-year floodplain from approximately 2.1 acres of the current 13.0 acres of floodplain on this property.

 

A neighborhood meeting was held virtually through RingCentral on September 14, 2021. Attendees included one property owner representative, two from KFM Engineering & Design, and four 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.
