19880512CCMeeting1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 The Tybee Island City Council held its regular monthly meeting on Thursday, May 12, 1988 at the Tybee Island City Hall, with Mayor Walter W. Parker presiding. The following were present: Councilmembers Paul Jackson, John O'Neill, Jean Davis, Bill Walsh, Jack Youmans and Chris Solomon and City Attorney Thomas J. Mahoney, Jr. Mayor Parker welcomed a large crowd and first introduced Mr. Dan Fogarty, candidate for the Chatham County Commission, 4th District, which seat is being vacated by the candidacy of Bob McCorkle, incumbent, for the Chairmanship. Mr. Fogarty spoke briefly to tell the people that he doesn't believe in unnecessary taxes or in importing people to fill the county's most important positions. Councilman O'Neill asked if he is Irish? Mr. Fogarty replied that he was Marshall's Aide in this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade. Mr. Michael J. Counihan, former Mayor, and this year's Parade Marshall, was then recognized and welcomed. The second speaker was Eddie Suttles, Director of the Tybee Island Chamber of Commerce. He came to seek a parade permit for the Beach Bums' Parade. This is the second annual parade, and it will assemble at Lovell & Sixteenth, march down 16th to the Strand, up 17th to Butler and down Butler Avenue to the Welcome Center. It is scheduled for May 21st at 3 p.m. Mayor Parker said that he has spoken to the Chief and that the permit will be issued on Monday morning. Mrs. Maude Alice Berry spoke for the Tybee Museum & Lighthouse Assn., thanking the Mayor and Council for inclusion of their request in the city's budget. She informed everyone that it now takes 42 volunteers per week to run the operation, and that she is very proud of the organization and its workers. The audience was informed that the funding for the Museum /Lighthouse will be . a total of $18,000.00 this year, to be paid in monthly increments of $1500.00 per month. This is to be expensed against the mandated 40% of the hotel /motel taxes which must be contracted to promote tourism, etc. on the island. Roy Rowell was the next speaker, representing a number of property owners who request paving for Naylor Avenue, and other streets in the Fort Screven area. He presented a petition signed by about 60 people living in the area, asking for signs "15 MPH" and "CHILDREN PLAYING" saying that there is a serious traffic problem and that Naylor is impassable. Mayor Parker asked Councilmembers Walsh, Jackson and O'Neill to investigate this. Mrs. James Ray spoke next to ask about the Estill Avenue right -of -way. 1 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Two She was told that the city had a survey made. The surveyor will meet with the City Council on site to look at the situation so that a determination can be made. No decision will be made, it was promised, until after the City Council has the opportunity to look at the site with the surveyor. John Jarvis spoke to say that Mr. Rowell knew what the streets in Fort Screven were like before he began developing there. He asked that new residents not be given priority over long -time residents who have suffered poor streets for years. Baroness Ridiesal, a visitor from Germany who owns a summer residence here, spoke to thank the island people for their hospitality. She was very com- limentary about the island. Pat Locklear spoke to endorse Dan Fogarty's candidacy for the Chatham Commission, adding that Tybee needs to back a local citizen for the school board, too. He informed the public that Dan is a World War II veteran whose name is on our war memorial in Memorial Park. He requested that the sign at Lazaretto Creek be replaced because it has bullet holes in it. Mayor Parker then re- opened a public hearing which was postponed from last month for property with frontage on Butler Avenue, extending to Lovell Avenue, PIN # 4 -04 -02 -002. Mr. Mahoney, the City Attorney, began with a statement about the state zoning law, and gave a definition of spot zoning, as "the taking /singling out of a small parcel for a use classification different from the surrounding area ". He cautioned City Council to consider whether a rezoning would result in the creation of a spot zone which could be subject to legal attack. Jim Monaghan spoke as agent for the owners. He said.the property is currently zoned R -2, and introduced Matthew and Hortense Doyle, who were present. He referred to a handout, a map showing non - residential uses. He stated that the surrounding area is mainly either commercial or public in use, and that there is very little residential fronting Butler in this area. He opined that the request would not create a spot zone. Matthew Doyle said that he and his wife plan to sell the land for the development of a bed and breakfast, which is the most popular tourist accommodation in Europe and the Northeast. He said the local Chamber of Commerce has numerous requests from people who'd like to stay in one, and who have to be told that there isn't one on Tybee. 1 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Three Mayor Parker reminded everyone that the most prevalent objection at last month's meeting was that a zoning change to Commercial would not make the stated use mandatory, and would be a permanent change. Mr. Doyle said that a bed & breakfast would probably be a losing proposition for several years, but would be a substantial investment on expensive property. Mrs. Hortense Doyle said that the building would look exactly like a large beach home, and would not be suitable for conversion to most of the objectionable commercial uses the neighbors fear. Jim Monaghan briefly stated his professional opinion that the parcel is not saleable as residential property. Cecil deLorme, owner of a home on Second Street, opposed the commercial designation, saying that there are no commercial uses on the block. He cited traffic which is severely congested during beach season as a potential problem. He said he believes the public officials can be trusted to make the best decision . for all. He added that the property is ideal for multi- family development, but that commercial could lead to anything. Ms. A. Guilliams, whose property fronts on Lovell, said she is against the commercial designation. She mentioned several examples, notably the corner where a Jiffy Mart is supposedly planned, and the land across from DeSoto which was rezoned for parking for condos that were never built. She says the city needs a reversion clause so that these rezonings can be conditional, and revert to the original use if they are not built upon within a specified length of time. Jimmy Brown spoke to say he is still against, for the same reasons that he gave last month. Paul Ewalson of Second Terrace said he is against rezoning the tract. Betty McLendon said that the residents deserve to be considered, and that the city has too many irons in the fire now. While bed & breakfast facilities are nice, and an attraction, she said she believes there are other areas that need to be resolved, and that weekly rentals is an area where the city needs to address problems. At the Mayor's request, the clerk read the body of a petition against the rezoning request. Several pages of names and addresses were attached. Matthew Doyle said that Mr. DeLorme greatly exaggerated the case against rezoning. He said that the area has only two parcels that have potential for commercial development and this could not be the cause of a domino - effect, or a creeping disease. He said he could spend a half -hour telling of his public Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Four service on Tybee Island, and that he didn't ome here to hurt anyone. Jimmy Brown answered to say that nothing personal is intended by his opposition, as did Mr. DeLorme. Ten or twelve people stood to note t1eir objection to the rezoning at the request of Mr. Brown. The public hearing was closed. The meeting was opened by Mayor Parker for business legally presented. He said that the first matter would be action on the rezoning petition. He informed the audience that the public hearing would be governed by the pertinent code sections, and that each member of Council has a copy of the criteria for zoning decisions. John O'Neill moved to deny, with a second from Councilmember Davis. Mr. Mahoney asked that the record reflect that the City Council is following the criteria set down in the Tybee Code, Section 8 -4 -73 which is based on the applicable state law. Councilmember Solomon said he prefered to take no action, since that prohibits the property owner from coming before Council for a year. He said that he believes this is too restrictive, and doesn't think it fair to the owner, who may have made a mistake in the kind of request he made. He also stated that he favors the sunset provision on rezoning mentioned during the public eharing. Councilmember Youmans said delaying action isn't proper since the code is not in the process of being changed right now. Councilmember Solomon countered that he would hate to see zero lot lines, and no height restrictions such as are found in the commercial zone, but that he doesn't want to hold them up a year. The vote was taken and was recorded as five (5) in favor, with one (1) abstaining (Mr. Solomon). Under communications a letter was read dated April 20th from the Assistant County Manager, Pat Monaghan, regarding the tennis courts in Memorial Park. The county has approved 100% funding for the project, rather than the 50/50 matching funds we thought we had. Mr. Monaghan said that he has recommended that the county treat Tybee recreational facilities like they do those at Lake Mayer in Savannah. A letter from Deen Day Smith of the Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. was read. She congratulated Tybee on its improved appearance, and on the award won by our beautification committee in Atlanta last month at the Governor's Award Banquet. Councilmember Davis stated that the Finance Committee recommends a $50.00 fee, charged on the building permit, for construction /sales trailers on site. 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Five The Council concurred with this decision unanimously. The Second Reading of Code Sections 8/1/1 - 8/1/11 was followed by a motion to adopt from Councilman Walsh. Councilmember Davis seconded and the vote was unanimous, in favor. The ordinance is therefore adopted, and a copy is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes. The Second Reading of Code Sections 8/4/61 - 8/4/63 was read in two parts: a repealer and a new section entitled the same. The vote was unanimous in favor of adoption, with the motion made by Councilman Jackson and seconded by Councilman Walsh. This ordinance, also, becomes a part of these minutes. The First Reading of an ordinance relating to delinquent water bills (Code Section 6 -1 -15) was read. Councilman Walsh moved its adoption; Councilman Jackson seconded and the vote was unanimous in favor. The Second Reading therefore followed immediately, with motion and vote identical to the first. The ordinance is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes. Mayor Parker announced that the 9- member Planning Commission will hold its first meeting in June. He regreted that Bob Wheat and Bob Humphrey, of the Zoning Appeals Board, will not serve due to the additional time involved, saying that they had both done an excellent job and he is sorry to lose their services, although both had said they'd work on special projects not requiring a committment to a regular monthly meeting. The appointments of John Hutton as Interim Chairman and of Jimmy Brown as a new member were also announced, along with John Lewis' acceptance as a transfer from the Adjustments Board. All members have not yet been selected, but this information will be announced before the next meeting if possible. It was added that Warren Bell, Mary McAfee and Tommy Clark are serving the remainder of their terms, and that others on the present Planning Commission have terms already expired, although some may be asked to remain, depending on whether the openings are available when all members serving unexpired terms on all three boards are heard from. The hope was expressed that the 9- member Board will be filled completely before its first meeting on June 6th. On motion by Councilman O'Neill, seconded by Councilman Youmans, the appointments made thus far were confirmed unanimously. The Second Reading of Code Section 6- 3 -1(b) [Water Sewer Charges] was read by Councilman Walsh. He moved its adoption and Councilman Jackson seconded. Councilman O'Neill questioned whether any communication about this had been re- ceived from the Chamber of Commerce and the answer was negative. The vote was 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Six unanimous, and the ordinance passed. A copy is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes. A Second Reading of Code Section 6- 3- 1(c)[Water Sewer Charges] followed. Councilman Walsh moved its adoption; Councilman Solomon seconded and the vote was unanimous in favor. A copy is, therefore, attached to these minutes. Councilman O'Neill announced that the city has received word that LARP funds will resurface portions of three paved streets. A copy of this information is attached to these minutes. Councilman Solomon spoke of Naylor Avenue, saying he has recent y moved to Wilson Avenue himself. He said the damage to Naylor was done by a c ntractor we hired to put in drainage and that the street is virtually impassable. A First Reading of Code Section 2- 5- 2[Court Costs] was passed w thout dissent after a motion by Councilman Jackson, seconded by Councilmember Davis. A Second Reading followed immediately, with the identical motion, and the ordinance was adopted. A copy is attached to, and becomes a part of these minutes. Councilmember Davis introduced the budget for FY 88/89. The General Fund Budget balanced at $1,877,244.00 and the Water /Sewer at $636,000.00. Council agreed, after discussion, that these totals would be definite, but that certain line items in departmental budgets would be adjusted. This was done after a complaint from Councilman Solomon that his recreation budget had been unfairly cut at the expense of the children of the island. He said the city shouldn't make money off of children, and that his department head had not been consulted. Councilman Jackson moved adoption of the budget totals, Councilman O'Neill seconded and the vote was five (5) to one (1), with Councilman Solomon opposed. There was a brief recess. The public hearing for the pier /pavilion was opened. Mayor Parker made an opening statement. He named the various agencies who have been involved in getting the project this far: DNR, Fish & Game, the Shore Protection Committee, The Corps of Engineers, the State Properties Commission, the State Legislature, the Coast Guard and FEMA. He said that, due to restrictions placed by some of these agencies, the exterior plan is pretty well set, but that there is leeway for design of the interior, and leeway for various optional activities & uses. He stated that the City Council is NOT considering a general obligation bond issue, but a revenue bond issue, which would be paid off by receipts from leases 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Seven and income from admissions and sales on the pier and pavilion. Rusty Fleetwood was the first speaker from the audience. He questioned whether, even if the pier is not funded by G.O. bonds, in effect is the future of the government down the road not being mortgaged? He said the facility would be used primarily by visitors and that the taxpayers should not be expected to foot the bill for maintenance, etc. He cited the feasibility studies done for the Savannah Exposition, which were very optimistic, and the later need for City of Savannah to rescue a failing operation. He asked if any major investors have come forward. Mayor Parker answered that at least six investment banks are very interested. Councilman Walsh said he had asked the tax attorney the question about default, and was told that the bondholders would take over the facility and run it in case of default. Mr. Mahoney said that City of Savannah chose to take action on behalf of the Savannah Exposition, but were not mandated to do so. Shelly Solomon asked about income projections and Mayor Parker answered that there are no hard and fast predictions, although the subject is included in the consultant's report. He also asked about parking. Mayor Parker replied that the study indicates there is adequate parking in the area. Jim Lynes asked if the location is finalized. Mayor Parker answered that there is no choice in the state's easement; the site is that of the old pier. He said there were indications that one of the reasons why the permit was granted is that there is debris from the old location in the area, making it hazardous for other recreation. He later added that this did not mean the site couldn't be changed, but only that the city has no permits for any other location. Mrs. Marjorie Harris asked that the location be pinpointed for her, and the site was described more fully. Phil O'Dell asked what would happen if the feasibility study proved to be too optimistic. He also asked what the plans were for vendors, and for parking. He filially asked if there is a chance that the project might be developed in stages. Mayor Parker said that two -stage development has been considered, and not completely ruled out, but that the tax and bond people believe this would accelerate costs. Jim Kluttz asked what is needed in order to go ahead and Mayor Parker said that the next step will be to choose a bonding company. Mr. Kluttz then 1 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Eight asked what the time frame might be and was told by M. Mahoney that a good estimate might be three months. The question of the location again arose, and Councilmember O'Neill said he believed Council had voted, in an earlier meeting, not to reconsider the site. Jim Kluttz asked about the width of the pier and John Hutton replied that the 12' width is for purposes of maintenance for gold course access and for economics - considering all needs it seemed to be the best size. The question was asked if this would accommodate enough fishermen, and if the study considered this question. The answer was affirmative. It was asked whether the facility, or at least the pier part of it, will be closed at night. Mayor Parker answered that this has not been determined, but the study does allow for security. Linda Cox said she didn't want to see it turn into another trouble spot and be a problem for the local police. Mayor Parker said that there will have to be an administrator for the facility, and that the city would like to have some authority in the running of it. Faye Lucas asked if a restaurant is planned and Mayor Parker said the present plans call for a 400 -seat restaurant, capable of being closed off in quadrants. Faye then asked if there would be a convention area. Mayor Parker said that, in addition to the upper floor restaurant area, the dance floor on the pavilion is designed for 1000 couples, and could possibly be used also for a skating rink. Mrs. Louise Sasser asked about liability and was told that indications are that insurance would be available. Mr. Charles Hosti questioned whether there would not be costs to the city, such as the liability insurance just mentioned. He asked what the real cost to the taxpayer will be, and how the city plans to have any imput if it leases the facility. There was also a question about whether the facility, if leased, would be tax -free. Mr. Mahoney replied that the building, owned by the city, would be tax - exempt. If revenue bonds are used to finance, it will have to be self - sufficient since the bonds will require that. He assured the audience that he doesn't believe the City Council of Tybee wants a situation like that in Savannah, with the Exposition, explaining again that Savannah was not required to do what it did, Note: Code Section 2 -5 -2, Court Costs, was amended in two readings, on motion of Councilman Jackson and second by Councilmember Davis. This is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes. 1 1 1 Tybee Island, Georgia May 12, 1988 Page Nine but made a choice to come to the rescue of the failing operation with city funds. Faye Lucas said she believes the city wants a convention facility. Mayor Parker said he believes the facility would be beneficial to the local businesses, especially hotels, and would help them to upgrade their accommodations. Mr. Stoupenous, of Christy's on 16th Street asked how the pier will stand in relation to 16th Street and was told that the easement is just north of 16th. Pat Locklear asked if the beach belongs to Tybee or to the state? And . can we get any state help? Mayor Parker replied that there is no formal under- standing with any other agencies but he thinks the county & the City of Savannah may be interested. Pat also asked that the price of the bonds be kept down to $1000 level so that Tybee people can afford to own one or two. Councilman Youmans said it'd be better to make that $25.00! Bill Story spoke for the Tybrisa Time - sharing Units saying they want to see the pier relocated 100 feet south. He said he believes legislation could be done, and had that understanding from the delegation last year. He suggested that the bonding companies be asked which location is best since he can't see the sense in building such an expensive structure and then hiding it. He also suggested that the model might be misleading as to the actual mass of the project, and asked if it can succeed? If so, he said, let's build it. Mayor Parker said the present easement won't allow the move, and that there could always be a hitch, either in the legislature or the State Properties Commission, adding that we had been advised early that the easiest route to go would be the location of the old pavilion. Councilman Solomon said that the Tybrisa project is successful, and will be - that the pavilion & pier should only add to its desirability for buyers. The meeting was adjourned.
