  5. 5. Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) The TIA studied five area intersections: • Lincoln Avenue/Ashburn Avenue (blue) • University Drive/Tarrow Street East (orange) • Lincoln Avenue/Tarrow Street (orange) • Lincoln Avenue/Munson Avenue (orange) • Ashburn Avenue/Francis Drive (orange) The proposed development would also have access to Tarrow Street via Wellesley Court and Vassar Court. (red) The TIA accounted for a shift in traffic patterns resulting for the potential connection to Lincoln Avenue. All studied intersections operated at an acceptable level of service in the existing condition and development build out scenarios.
  6. 6. Proposed Modifications • Land Uses: Farmer’s Market A 1:1 slope building height setback to the existing single-family lots to the east of the property. • Building Height Setback • Sings: Area Identification/Subdivision Sign, Freestanding Sign Location, Wayfinding Signs, Low-Profile Sign. • Landscaping: Reduction in Streetscaping, Parking screening, Outdoor Sales Area Screening, Residential Buffer • Subdivision: A single tier lots, Block Perimeter
  7. 7. Proposed Community Benefits: • Infill development that will utilize existing utilities and resources and result in much needed sales tax revenue for the City. • A unique mixture of single-family, multi-family and commercial uses with an urban feel. • A walkable development with access to surrounding residents as well as the adjoining University Town Center. • The multi-family and hotel structures shall not exceed 60 feet in height. • Attached signage for the non-residential portion of the property will not face Lincoln Avenue and will be located away from the Eastgate Neighborhood. • Night Clubs, Bars and/or Taverns are prohibited within this PDD.
