A Yukon advisory panel has OK’d a request that would pave the way for a trampoline park in southwest Yukon.
The Yukon Planning Commission, at its Dec. 12th meeting, voted 5-0 to recommend approval of a replat and reverse lot split for commercial property in phase 6 of the Yukon Parkway West development south of Interstate 40 and west of Garth Brooks Boulevard.
Ground Control Parks LLC of San Antonio, Texas. is seeking City of Yukon approval to construct a trampoline park on a three-acre site, according to a city planning staff report.
A 35,035 square foot facility has been proposed on the north side of N.W. 10th between Professional Circle and Health Center Parkway, according to a site study submitted by Crafton Tull & Associates.
The undeveloped site is zoned C-3 (restricted commercial district) and C-5 (automotive and commercial recreation district). Some 163 parking spaces are required.
“Our client is purchasing the southerly lot and then he needs a little more room for parking,” said project engineer Kendall Dillon, represented the owner/developer at December’s Yukon Planning Commission meeting.
“That’s the reason we’re proposing to replat (one) lot into two.”
The replat and “lot combination” are consistent with the 2040 Yukon Comprehensive Plan and “high intensity” land use designation for the property, city planning staff reports indicate.
As part of the platting process, the applicant has agreed to place “limits of no access” on Health Center Parkway and provide shared access “limited to one curb cut” on Professional Circle.
The applicant also agreed to provide an exhibit to city staff showing the new property boundaries and legal description.
Yukon Planning Commission Chairman Bill Baker asked Dillon if this new building would look like other commercial buildings on that street.
“At this point, I don’t have a lot of details as far as the building or the nature of the use,” said Dillon, Crafton Tull’s senior vice president and project manager. “It’s just simply the surveying component.”
After the replat and lot split approval, the Yukon Planning Commission is expected to consider a rezoning application with a planned unit development (PUD) for the project.
That application will provide more details about the building’s use, Dillon noted.
