Updates for 2-E-20-UR



Staff Recommendation

APPROVE the proposed amendments to the Master Plan and Development Guidelines for Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus subject to 8 conditions:

1. Meeting all applicable conditions of the original Master Plan and Development Guidelines approval for Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus (12-A-14-UR - Approved on April 9, 2015). 2. A revised Traffic Impact Study (TIS) will be required for any proposed development application for staff review that would exceed the development threshold of 600,000 sq. ft. if the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has not completed the interchange project at Alcoa Highway and Cherokee Trail/UT Medical Center exit. In the applicants TIS update letter of November 3, 2014, 600,000 sq. ft. of development was identified as the threshold for an undesirable LOS (Level of Service) for the existing access to Alcoa Highway. The development plan for any future applications for development shall include the proposed development square footage and total approved development square footage for the campus (approved projects) to determine if the 600,000 sq. ft. threshold will be met or exceeded. 3. The development plans submitted for staff review shall provide running totals for building square footage and approved parking to verify that adequate parking will be available on the campus. 4. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knoxville Department of Engineering. 5. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Tennessee Scenic Highway Act. 6. Proposed signage for the development is subject to the approval by the Planning staff and the City of Knoxville staff. 7. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knoxville Zoning Ordinance. 8. Any request to deviate from the approved Master Plan would require a special use approval from the Planning Commission. With the conditions noted, the amendments to the adopted Master Plan meet the requirements for approval of a use on review in the BP-1 district.
