Conditional Rezoning for Proposed BGB Luxury Apartments

The matter of the conditional rezoning for the proposed Bostick development north of Kroger and the Troy Sports Center, and adjacent to the Raintree Village subdivision, is on the agenda for the April 23, 2019 7:00pm meeting of the City of Troy Planning Commission.

This is a continuation of the item from the March 12 meeting where it was postponed. Since a public hearing was already conducted, it is possible that there will not be an additional public hearing.

The agenda packet for the April 23 meeting can be found at o.troymi.gov/BoardsandCommittees/?Board=planningcommission. According to the Rezoning Analysis and Preliminary Site Plan Review starting on page 16 of the agenda packet, the item was continued to "Give the applicant an opportunity to work out some details as relates to site access, traffic circulation and pattern through the retail parking lot, impact on schools and bus routes, density as relates to units per acre, details on trash and recycling collection, heights of all the buildings, open space and vehicular turnaround." Since the March 12 meeting, the applicant has revised the plan to add bicycle parking at the clubhouse, and add a stamped pavement pedestrian crossing across Nancy Bostick Dr. The location of the trash and recycling collection, in the northeast corner close to Raintree Village homes, has not changed.

The Planning Commission may vote to recommend approval of the conditional rezoning, or to recommend denial, or to postpone. If the Planning Commission recommends approval or denial, the matter will then be considered at a future City Council meeting.

The meeting is open and can be attended in person at City Hall or viewed live on the City's Youtube channel.

A replay of the March 12 meeting can be viewed here. The ground rules for a public hearing are given at 14:57. The agenda item is introduced at 16:14. Matt Kolis, from GHD, who worked on the Traffic Impact Study, addresses RVHA's concerns starting at 1:08:41. The public hearing is opened at 1:21:55.

A memo from OHM, the City of Troy's traffic consultant, responding to queries from RVHA regarding the Traffic Impact Study for the project can be found here.

Coyote Alert

There have been multiple recent sightings of one or more coyotes in the subdivision. The picture to the right was taken around 10:00am on November 29th at the edge of the Baker Middle School woods near Harmony and Madison. Another homeowner near Glenwood and Wakefield reported a coyote on her back porch trying to reach her cat.

Always keep these cautions in mind:

  • Do not leave pets or small children unattended.
  • Do not place pet food outdoors.
  • Do not take any action that will make coyotes less afraid of humans.
  • Be aware that coyotes can jump a six-foot fence.

The City of Troy also has Coyote Information.
