Steve Gilbert and Leland Con- struetion Company's concept of cluster housing, located at the 9600 block of Southeast 36th Street, is designed to accommodate 15 sin- gle-family dwellings in two- and three-unit clusters. The project requires a reclassification of zon- ing from R-8.4, single family, to R-2. multiple-family residential. The commission approved the concept at its last meeting, but applied conditions to the design plan, To comply with conditions, one unit was withdrawn from the site to allow a larger setback and a berm was added to create more of a division between the units and Gallagher Hill Road. To further comply with commis- sioners' requests, a firm will be hired to landscape areas with dense growth to prevent foot traf- fic. a major concern of surround- ing neighbors. Low-profile street lighting, mail boxies that are consistent with the design and an entrance sign also were added to the architectural and landscape plan. Uncovered parking stalls were eliminated to avoid the parking of recreational vehicles in places other than garages, another com- plaint of the planning commisslon. Gilbert said he is not adverse to any suggestions the planning com- mission has which would make a presentable package for the city council when it decides the zoning reclassification.
