WHEREAS THE CITY OF NORFOLK FIRE PLUMBING ME CAN'T IAL AND BUILDING PROFESSIONALS CONTINUALLY
PUT FORTH EFFORTS TO ADDRESS IS US OF FIRE SAFETY, CONSERVATION, SUSTAINABILITY AND THE
BUILT ENVIRONMENT THAT AFFECT OUR CITIZENS? EVERY DAY LIFE AND TIMES OF NATURAL DISASTER
THAT GIVES US CONFIDENCE OUR BUILDINGS ARE SAFE AND SOUND, ACHIEVED THROUGH OFFICIALS
BEINGS FIRE MARSHALS THAT WORK YEAR ROUND, WHERE PUBLIC SERVICES CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATE
IN AND IMPLEMENT NATIONAL CODES AND THE CODES OF VIRGINIA, WHEREAS THE INTERNATIONAL CODES, THE MOST
WIDELY ADOPTED BUILDING SAFETY AND FIRE PREVENTION CODES ARE USED BY THE COMMONWEALTH, THEY INCLUDE
SAFEGUARDS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM ALSO NATURAL DISASTERS, WHERE BUILDING SAFETY MONTH

[APPLAUSE] WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK, FRANK, ANYBODY LIKE
TO SAY ANYTHING? WE LIKE TO KNOW THE INDEPENDENT CENTER IS
PART OF THIS, IT'S IMPORTANT TO US. >> BRIEFLY, AS I'VE SAID IN YEARS PAST BUILDING
SAFETY CROSSES MANY LINES INCLUDING FIRE PREVENTION, PLANNING, NEIGHBORHOOD QUALITY, PUBLIC WORKS,
UTILITIES, WE DO MANY ACROSS ALL DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS OF THE CITY IS BUILDING SAFETY.
WE ALL ESSENTIALLY WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN, BUT THIS YEAR WE ARE DOING SOMETHING
SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT, TRYING TO RAISE AT WEARNESS OF ANOTHER ASPECT OF OUR CODE WE DO ANOTHER
DAY THAT NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT, THAT IS ACCESSIBILITY.
CHAPTER 11 DEALS WITH REMODELING WORK AND EXISTING STRUCTURES.
WHAT WE'RE DOING TO RAISE AWARENESS WE'RE COOPERATING WITH THE INDEPENDENT CENTER TO
HAVE EACH JURISDICTION IN EACH REGION TO SHADOW SOMEONE IN A WHEELCHAIR OR SOMEONE VISUALLY
IMPAIRED FOR A DAY AND THAT IS TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY AND THE IDEA BEHIND THAT IS TO RAISE
AWARENESS FOR NOT ONLY US IN TERMS OF THE THINGS WE DO BUT SAME TIME RAISE AWARENESS
WITH THE PUBLIC FOR WHAT WE DO. I WANTED TO ANNOUNCE IT AND THANK THE MAYOR
AND COUNCIL, ALSO INVITE STEVE JOHNSON IF HE WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS.
>> THANK YOU. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO THANK MR. UNDERWOOD AND
THE CITY FOR MAKING ACCESS TO -- FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES A PRIORITY, AND WE ARE VERY
HAPPY TO COOPERATE IN THIS PROJECT AS WE HAVE IN OTHERS IN THE PAST, AND WE ARE LOOKING
FORWARD TO DOING THIS AND MAYBE EVEN DOING IT ON AN ANNUAL BASIS, WE'D BE MORE THAN HAPPY
TO BE INVOLVED. THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN TONIGHT. CHIEF, YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING?
>> THANK YOU, SIR. JUST SIMPLY TO EXPRESS APPRECIATION FOR THE
ACKNOWLEDGMENT FOR THE VERY HARD WORK OF THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE FIRE MARSHAL'S OFFICE,
THEY PUT IN NUMEROUS HOURS AND THE HEART OF IT ALL IS SIMPLY TO TRY TO HELP THE CITY TO
BE A SAFER PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND PLAY. >> OKAY.
THANKS. WE APPRECIATE IT.
THANK YOU. THAT CONCLUDES THE CEREMONIAL MATTERS.
WE'LL MOVE TO PUBLIC HEARINGS, PUBLIC HEARING 1, PLEASE.
>> PUBLIC HEARING SCHEDULED THIS DAY PURSUANT TO ACTION OF THE COUNCIL ON APRIL 5, 2011,
UNDER THE STATE LAW, PUBLIC NOTICE HAVING BEEN INSERTED IN THE LOCAL PRESS BY THE CITY
CLERK, ON THE APPLICATION OF SENTARA NORFOLK GENERAL HOSPITAL, FOR A CHANGE OF CONDITIONS
TO THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL IN-2 (CAMPUS INSTITUTIONAL) DISTRICT ON PROPERTY LOCATED AT 835 REDGATE
AVENUE. BY 3-1 VOTE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMEND
APPROVAL. >> THERE ARE ABOUT SEVEN FOLKS WHO HAVE SIGNED
UP TO ADDRESS THE COUNCIL ON THIS MATTER. WHEN I CALL YOUR NAME PLEASE IF YOU COME TO
THE PODIUM, IDENTIFY YOURSELF BY GIVING US YOUR FULL NAME, HOME ADDRESS AND THEN WE WOULD
LIKE YOU TO LIMIT YOUR REMARKS TO THREE MINUTE. MR. TISDELL, WOULD YOU LIKE TO START?
WARREN TISDELL. >> GOOD EVENING, MY HOME ADDRESS IS 611 EAST
MOBY COURT IN NORFOLK. I'M WITH WILCOX AND SAVAGE AND I REPRESENT
NORFOLK GENERAL. WITH ME IS BILL HOFFER WHO IS VICE PRESIDENT
OF OPERATIONS FOR NORFOLK GENERAL AND HE WILL HAVE A COUPLE WORDS TO SAY.
I WILL TRY TO FOCUS, TAKE A COUPLE MINUTE AND TALK ABOUT THE ZONING ISSUE, BILL IS TALKING
ABOUT APPLICATION, WORKING WITH COMMUNITY. IN TERMS OF CONTEXT, FOR THE HISTORY, THE
NORTHERN PART OF THE BLOCK, THIS PARCEL IS A PART, WAS REZONED IN 1990 FROM R-5 TO C-2
CONDITIONAL WITH THE CONDITION BEING IT BE USED AS A DAY CARE OPERATION AND NOTHING ELSE.
THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE BLOCK WAS REZONED IN 1988 ALSO FROM R-5 TO CONDITIONAL C-2 AND
THAT WAS TO ACCOMMODATE THE PARKING GARAGE THERE.
THAT WAS HE NEXT MAY OF 1988. THE ZONING WE ARE COMING TO ASK FOR CHANGE
OF CONDITION ON TODAY WAS EFFECTIVE IN 1990, I WANT TO STRESS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO DIFFERENT
ZONING EVENTS. AGAIN, IN TERMS OF CLARIFICATION IN 1992 THE
CITY IN THE COMPREHENSIVE FASHION WENT BACK AND CHANGED ALL OF C-20 CAMPUS TO FIT THE
NATURE OF WHAT GOES ON WITH THE HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL SERVICES SO NOW THE PROPERTY IS IN
2 CONDITIONAL. THE HOSPITAL AGREED TO THE CONDITION IT BE
A DAY CARE BACK IN 1990. AND ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH CHKD AND
THERE WAS A 20 YEAR LEASE TO OPERATE IT. I THINK CHKD OF COURSE IS A PREEM OAR CHILDREN'S
HOSPITAL, THEY DID A GOOD JOB OPERATING IT BUT IT'S A TOUGH MODEL TO MEET IN TERMS OF
KEEPING THE QUALITY OF CARE UP, IN TERMS OF THE FINANCIAL MODEL.
AFTER 19 YEARS THEY DECIDED THAT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO CONTINUE TO BE INVOLVED WITH IT AND
ESSENTIALLY WITH ONE YEAR LEFT ON THE LEASE GAVE IT BACK TO THE HOSPITAL.
THE HOSPITAL HAS IDENTIFIED USER OR USERS INTERESTED IN USING THAT PARTICULAR PROPERTY
AS ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES. WET ARE COMING TO YOU NOT ONE YEAR AFTER WE
PUT THE CONDITION ON IT FOR DAY CARE, NOT FIVE YEARS, NOT 15, BUT IT BEEN 21 YEARS SINCE
THE DAY CARE PROVISION WAS PUT ON AND WITH THE CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE TYPE OF
CAMPUS CONDITIONS THERE IN THE AREA AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN USING IT FOR
ANOTHER PURPOSE WE THOUGHT IT APPROPRIATE TO BRIDGE IT BACK TO YOU.
-- TO BRING IT BACK TO YOU. TO MY KNOWLEDGE THE COMMITMENT TO HAVE THE
PROPERTY OPERATED AS A DAY CARE CENTER WAS WHATEVER CREATED THE ZONING ORDINANCE FOR
THE PROPERTY. THE LAND USE ISSUE SIMPLY PUT IS DOES IT MAKE
SENSE TO ALLOW ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES ON THIS SITE.
AND I STRESS THE WORD "ADMINISTRATIVE" OTHER THAN "MEDICAL."
PATIENT WILL NOT BE COMING IN AND OFF FOR MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS.
THESE WILL BE ADMINISTRATIVE. I WOULD SAY THIS WILL HAVE LESS IMPACT ON
THE COMMUNITY THAN A DAY CARE DID,
AS FAR AS PARKING, PEDESTRIAN ACTIVITY. CHKD OFFICE RIGHT TO THE EAST OF THIS PROPERTY
HAS BEEN THERE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS WITH NO COMPATIBILITY PROBLEMS.
>> GENERAL McHENRY. >> WOULD IT BE OKAY, BILL IS HERE --
>> I'M GOING TO BRING HIM UP AFTER JOHN. >> GOOD EVENING, COUNCIL, I AM JOAN McHENRY,
I'M HERE ON BEHALF OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE. WE HEARD WEEKS AGO ABOUT THE CITY NEW POLICY
OF NEIGHBORS BIDDING NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS ISSUE IS ONE OF THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY
FOR CITY COUNCIL TO UPHOLD THIS COMMITMENT TO NEIGHBORHOODS AND THIS POLICY.
THIS SITE IS IN THE GENT NEIGHBORHOOD, WE ARE OPPOSED THIS REQUEST AND IT WAS UNANIMOUS
AT OUR MEETING. WE WOULD ASK COUNSEL MEMBERS TO SUPPORT THE
NEIGHBORHOOD AND DENY THE REQUEST. WHEN HISTORICAL CENTERS THEY CAME WITH A REQUEST
TO TEAR DOWN THE HOMES AS PART OF AN EXPANSION. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST ENCROACHMENT INTO OUR
NEIGHBORHOOD BY THE HOSPITAL AND THE IDEA LOSING THE RESIDENTIAL QUALITY AND HAVING
A MULTI STORY PARKING GARAGE WAS A CONCERN. THE CONCESSIONS THAT LED THE HOSPITAL TO BUILD
ITS GOAL, AND THE HOSPITAL AGREEING TO RESTRICTED ZONING GAVE A BUFFER.
THE APPLICANT'S PROS SPERD FROM THE ZONING CHANGE.
20 YEARS AGO THEY GOT THEIR EXTENSION, GOT THEIR PARKING GARAGE AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD
LOST THE HOMES. BUT THEY GOT A BUFFER IN A MUCH NEEDED DAY
CARE, BUT NOW THEY WANT TO TAKE IT TOO. THIS IS A RESIDENTIAL STREET WITH HISTORIC
DISTRICT AND IT IMPORTANT THE RESIDENTIAL BUFFER BE MAINTAIN.
THE PROMISE AND AGREEMENT TO HAVE A NEIGHBORHOOD DAY CARE HAS NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN BY SENTARA'S
NEIGHBORS, AND IT IS NEEDED. IT'S INCREDIBLE SENTARA DOES NOT PROVIDE DAY
CARE FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES, NOW THEY WANT TO EXPAND FOR OFFICE SITE TEARING OUT LITTLE
SINKS AND LITTLE TOILET. THERE ARE FEW DAY CARE SPACES IN THIS AREA.
IF SENTARA WANT TO RENEG ON THEIR PROMISES, THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE MORE, MORE THAN IT
EVER BARGAINED FOR. WE SHOULD NOT BE ASKED TO COMPROMISE ON A
COMPROMISE AND NO GOOD NEIGHBOR WOULD ASK US TO.
FOR THESE REASONS AND REASONS OUTLINED IN OUR WRITTEN SUBMISSION WE ASK YOU TO SUPPORT
OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND CITY MANAGER'S VISION WHERE NEIGHBORS STILL BUILD NEIGHBORHOODS.
>> MR. HOFFER, ROBERT? >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME THIS EVENING, MY NAME
IS ROBERT WILLIAM HOFFER, I LIVE AT 2404 MILLWOOD ROAD.
SENTARA HOSPITAL ORGANIZATION HAS AGREED TO LEASE THE SITE WITH A MEDICAL PRACTICE, A
LEASE HAS BEEN EXECUTED BUT IS CONTINGENT ON THIS CHANGE OF ZONING.
THIS PLAN DOES REQUIRE APPROVAL FROM THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE NORFOLK CITY COUNCIL TO
AMEND A ZONING CONDITION THAT LIMITS THE USE TODAY CARE TO USE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE SPACE,
WE ARE SEEKING YOUR APPROVAL FOR THE CHANGE. THE ORIGINAL APPLICATION SOUGHT ZONING APPROPRIATE
TO MEDICAL OR OFFICE USES, TO EASE THE TRANSITION TO ANOTHER TENANT SHOULD THAT BECOME NECESSARY
AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE. AS YOU HAVE HEARD TODAY, WE HAVE A REVISED
OUR APPLICATION TO ONLY ADD USE AS ADMINISTRATIVE SPACE TO THE EXISTING ORDINANCE.
WE HAVE WORKED VERY DILIGENTLY TO ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY FOR FEEDBACK AND SUPPORT, WE WANT
TO BE GOOD NEIGHBORS AND THRIVE AS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.
STARTING BACK IN DECEMBER WE BEGAN TO REACH OUT TO THE COMMUNITY TO SHARE OUR PLANS AND
ELICIT FEEDBACK. WE ATTENDED THE TASK FORCE IN JANUARY, MET
WITH THE LEADERSHIP ON JANUARY 31ST, 2011, MET WITH THE CIVIC LEAGUE IN FEBRUARY.
THEY VOTED TO OFFER NO OP EXIST TOWN OUR APPLICATION. WE HAVE HEARD OF A DESIRE FOR THIS SPACE TO
BE USED AS DAY CARE. WE HAVE ALSO HEARD OF GREAT CONCERN ABOUT
USING THIS SPACE TO PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH OR SUBSTANCE ABUSE SERVICES.
WE HAVE HEARD OF A CONCERN ABOUT USING THE SPACE AS MEDICAL OFFICES, MOSTLY FOR THE FEAR
OF WHAT WE MAY DECIDE TO DO AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE.
OUR CAMPUS NEEDS THIS SPACE TO BE AVAILABLE FOR USE AS OFFICES AND WE DO NOT PLAN TO USE
THE SPACE FOR DAY CARE. WE OFFERED TO EXCLUDE MENTAL HEALTH OR SUBSTANCE
ABUSE TREATMENT BUT ULTIMATELY TO ELIMINATE THE CONCERN, THIS PROPERTY WOULD BE USED TO
PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES WE REVISED TO INCLUDE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES ONLY.
WE BELIEVE THE REDGATE SITE IS APPROPRIATE FOR AD-MIN VAITIVE OFFICES AND WILL ONLY KEEP
NORMAL HOURS. THERE ARE 30 PARKING SPOTS AVAILABLE TO THE
PROPERTY, ALL STAFF WORKING IN THIS LOCATION WILL PARK IN THE PARKING DECK WHICH IS JUST
BEHIND THE BUILDING. THIS PLAN WILL HAVE MINIMAL IMPACT ON THE
NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE. OPERATIONS IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE WILL
BE BACK OFFICE, BILLING, ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE AND OTHER FUNCTIONS UNRELATED DIRECT PATIENT
CARE. WE HAVE IN THE AMENDED APPLICATION REVISED
THE CONDITION TO SAY THE PREMISES WILL BE USED AS ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES OR FOR THE
PROVISION OF CHILD CARE AND THE PROVISION OF RELATED NURSERY AND KINDERGARTEN EDUCATION
AND BEFORE AND AFTER CARE SCHOOL AND FOR THE PROVISION OF HEALTH AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
DIRECTLY RELATED TO CHILDREN. WE DO BELIEVE THIS IS A NEIGHBORHOOD-FRIENDLY
PLAN. THE ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED THE CHANGE
AND WE ARE SEEK YOUR APPROVAL TOO. >> HENRY CONDEE.
>> GOOD AFTERNOON, COUNCIL, MY NAME IS HENRY CONDEE, I LIVE IN THE 300 BLOCK OF COLONIAL
AVENUE. LET ME START BY SAYING TO CHARACTERIZE OUR
RELATIONSHIP AS FRIENDLY AND AMICABLE THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, MATTER OF FACT WE HAVE PARTICIPATED
IN PROJECT UNDER THE DESIGN, BUT IN THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE IT'S LIKE -- IT AKIN TO FENCES MAKE
GOOD NEIGHBORS AND BUFFERS TO PRESERVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD QUALITY.
I JUICE WANT TO REMIND, EVEN -- I JUST WANT TO REMIND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO
WHAT WAS PUT ON THE TABLE OR PRICE FOR THE CURRENT STRUCTURE WAS PART OF THE NORFOLK
HISTORICAL HERITAGE WHICH IS THE RESIDENCES THAT ARE NOW PART OF GENT WHICH BY THE WAY,
THEY ARE NOT PART OF WEST GENT, SO IN THAT REGARD, IN A SIMILAR REGARD, WE HAVE PLENTY
OF OFFICE SPACES THROUGHOUT NORFOLK AND, SO, I THINK THERE IS OPPORTUNITY TO MAINTAIN THIS
AS IS, SERVE THE COMMUNITY AND SERVE AS A BUFFER AS WE HAD A SOCIAL AGREEMENT EVEN THOUGH
IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO. THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU. PAGE ROSE?
>> GOOD EVENING, COUNCIL, MAYOR FRAIM, MY NAME IS PAGE ROSE, MY RESIDENCE IS ON GRADEN
AVENUE, REGARDING THE SENTARA, ALTHOUGH IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO THEY ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT
TO HAVE A DAY CARE, THE NEED OF A DAY CARE, AS A MOTHER OF A 2-YEAR-OLD I AM A MEMBER
OF A CHURCH THAT HAS A SPACE FOR MY CHILD, CURRENTLY I'D SAY MANY IF NOT ALL CHURCH DAY
CARES HAVE A WAITING LIST AT THE TIME. I WANT TO TOUCH ON THE AGREEMENT OF 20 YEARS
AGO THIS WAS NOT TAKEN INTO LIGHTLY WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD, HISTORIC HOMES WERE LEVELED,
TORN DOWN, FOREVER GONE UNDER THE AGREEMENT THAT WE WOULD ALWAYS HAVE A DAY CARE AT THAT
SITE WHICH THE NEIGHBORHOOD FEELS IS COMP PATIBLE WITH THE FABRIC OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
WE ARE DISTRESSED THIS IS CHANGING. WE HAD A NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING WHERE SENTARA
REPRESENTATIVES CAME TO SPEAK WITH US, I KNOW THERE WAS NO APPETITE FOR THE PLAN.
20 YEARS AGO WE WERE TOLD, TO REWRITE THE WORDING, IT ONLY BEGS 20 YEARS FROM NOW WHAT
WILL IT CHANGE. CURRENTLY THE NEED IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS
A STRONG ONE FOR DAY CARE AND THE SITE IS WELL-SUITED AS WAS DISCUSSED, LITTLE TOILETS,
LITTLE TABLES, LITTLE CHAIRS, SO LITTLE RETROFITTING WOULD HAVE TO BE DONE AND WE DO UNDERSTAND
THERE WAS A DAY CARE PROVIDER THAT WAS INITIALLY INTERESTED IN THIS SITE, BUT THE DISCUSSIONS
I BELIEVE WERE TERMINATED BY SENTARA, SO I WOULD URGE THE COUNCIL AND MAYOR FRAIM TO
PLEASE SUPPORT THE NEIGHBORHOOD. WE ACTUALLY HAVE RECEIVED AGAINST APPROVING
THIS PROPOSAL. THANK YOU.
>> SUZANNEA OTT. >> GOOD EVENING, COLONIAL AVENUE.
THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS OUR VIEWS.
THE NEIGHBORS, MY MAIN CONCERN IS AS A NEIGHBORHOOD. THE NEIGHBORS ACROSS FROM THE SITE USED TO
LOOK AT A ROW OF OTHER HISTORIC PROPERTIES. IF SENTARA HAD NOT MADE A STRONG ARGUMENT
20 YEARS AGO FOR A MUCH NEEDED DAY CARE FACILITY, WE DOUBT THAT THE RESIDENTIAL ZONING WOULD
EVER HAVE BEEN CHANGED IN THE FIRST PLACE. SO, WE FEEL THAT THERE SHOULD BE A SPECIAL
EFFORT NOT JUST TO PROTECT GENT BUT TO PROTECT ALL OF NORFOLK'S HISTORIC DISTRICTS AND ACROSS
FROM THIS BUILDING AND PROPERTY IS A DISTRICT. TO LOSE A BLOCK OF HOMES WAS ALREADY A SACRIFICE
BUT TO HAVE DONE IT FOR ONLY ANOTHER OFFICE BUILDING INSTEAD OF A FAMILY AND EMPLOYEE-FRIENDLY
DAY CARE WOULD BE A REAL SHAME. WHEN VISITORS COME TO SEE NORFOLK AND GENT
THEY DON'T COME TO ADMIRE HOSPITALS AND OFFICE BUILDINGS.
SO, PLEASE VOTE OR CONSIDER YOUR VOTE TO PRESERVE THE HISTORY THAT WE HAVE LEFT IN NORFOLK.
THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.
MRS. IRENE BLAKE WHO IS HERE WHO HAS LISTED HERSELF AS A PROPONENT BUT DOES NOT WISH TO
SPEAK, IS THAT RIGHT? >> THANK YOU.
THAT CONCLUDE THE LIST OF FOLKS WHO HAVE SIGN UP TO SPEAK --
>> MAY I MAKE A COMMENT. I HAVE WORKED WITH JOHN, WE HAVE ARGUED, SENTARA
STARTED WITH ONE OF THE MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES IN THERE, WE GOT WITH THEM AND SAID THAT WILL
NOT WORK. THEN THEY WERE GOING TO PUT A WORKING DOCTOR'S
OFFICE AND WE SAID NO, THAT IS NOT GOING TO WORK.
THEY HAVE GONE BACK, I DON'T THINK WE CAN TELL THEM THEY HAVE TO PUT A DAY CARE IN THERE,
IF THE DAY CARE PROVIDERS ARE NOT OUT THERE, I THINK THEY HAVE BEEN VERY FLEXIBLE WORKING
WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE, I KNOW JOAN AND I HAVE HAD LONG DISCUSSIONS AND WE HAVE
TO AGREE TO DISAGREE ON IT. THEY ARE NOT CHANGING THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING,
I WAS NOT HERE WHEN THEY TORE DOWN THE HISTORIC BUILDINGS, I WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS
THAT BUSY IF THEY WERE IN FACT ON THE HISTORIC REGISTRY, BUT I THINK THEY HAVE BEEN PRETTY
FLEXIBLE ABOUT TRYING TO MEET THE CONCERNS OF THE GENT NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE, I KNOW IT
NOT IN WEST GENT BUT THEY WEIGHED IN AND WERE AGAINST A COUPLE PROPOSALS EARLY ON AND WERE
NOW SATISFIED OR VOTED NOT TO OPPOSE WHAT THEY ARE DOING NOW.
WE ARE NOT PHYSICALLY CHANGING THE BUILDING, NOT GOING TO HAVE A TRAFFIC PROBLEM, I JUST
THINK WE ARE HAVING PEOPLE IN THE BUILDING, PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD HELPS THE PROXIMITY
OF KING'S DAUGHTERS IS IMPORTANT TO THEM FOR THE MEDICAL SPACE.
I'M SUPPORTIVE OF IT, I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERNS OF THE GENT NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE AND I JUST
DON'T SEE ANY DOWN SIDE REALLY TO THIS TO JUST TO TRY TO HOLD THEM TO SOMETHING THEY
ADD 20 YEARS AGO, IT THE SAME BUILDING, THE SAME STRUCTURE WE'RE LOOKING AT, PROBABLY
LESS CARS, SO I AM GOING TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF IT BUT I DO UNDERSTAND THE SENTIMENTSES
OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WE HAD A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS OF THIS AND MANY OTHER ISSUES BUT IT WANTED
TO LET YOU KNOW HOW I FELT ON IT. >> SIMILARLY I HAVE ALSO HAD MANY DISCUSSIONS
WITH BOTH SIDES ON THIS. FRANKLY, I SUSPECT IF I DIDN'T HEAR 20 YEARS
AGO I WOULD NOT HAVE SUPPORTED THE FACT THAT HISTORIC HOMES WOULD HAVE BEEN SACRIFICED.
I WASN'T HERETO YEARS AGO, NOW WE'RE LEFT WITH A DAY CARE CENTER THAT IS NOT A HISTORIC
SITE AND VERY FRANKLY I'M A LITTLE TROUBLED BY THE IDEA OF IT BEING A BUFFER, BUT IT'S
OKAY. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT SENTARA CHOSE
TO NOT SUPPORT A DAY CARE CENTER. FRANKLY, HAVING -- WORKING WITH NURSES AND
SENTARA DESPERATELY NEEDS CHILD CARE FOR THEIR NURSES AND RESIDENTS, I THINK THIS WAS NOT
A GOOD MOVE FOR THEM AND I THINK IT WOULD HAVE PLACED THEM AS BEING MUCH MORE HEALTHY
EMPLOYERS, SO I STATED THAT TO BILL AND I STATED IT TO THE ADMINISTRATOR OF SENTARA,
BUT WE'RE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF FORCING COMPANIES WHICH WAY THEY ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO,
AND SINCE WE JUST HAVE A BIDDING THERE THAT -- BUILDING THERE THAT IS GOING TO HAVE VERY
LITTLE TRAFFIC AND NOT MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD, I WILL SUPPORT SENTARA'S PROPOSAL.
>> IF I CAN SAY ONE THING, I WAS ACTUALLY HERETO YEARS AGO.
ACTUALLY THE PROPERTIES THAT CAME DOWN WERE IN TERRIBLE SHAPE, IT WAS NOT A CREDIT TO
THE NEIGHBORHOOD UNDER ANY SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE PARKING GARAGE RELIEVED A GREAT DEAL
OF STRESS OF PEOPLE PARKING IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS WHICH WAS ALWAYS A PROBLEM.
THE BUILDING THAT IS THERE NOW IS ACTUALLY IN GREAT SHAPE AND AS BUFFERS GO IT'S A PRETTY
GOOD BUFFER AND HIDES THE PARKING GARAGE, AND, SO, I'D LIKE TO SEE THIS -- IT THOUGHT
A DAY CARE WAS AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL USE OF THE PROPERTY, BUT LIKE TERRY SAID, 20 YEARS
LATER CITIES CHANGE, A CITY IS A LIVING THING AND 20 YEARS LATER I THINK IS AT LEAST A FAIR
USE OF THE PROPERTY FOR 20 YEARS AND IF THEY CHOOSE NOW TO DO THIS USE WHICH I THINK IS
LESS INTRUSIVE ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD BY FAR. YOU CAN'T GO BACK AND PUT THE OLD BUILDINGS
BACK SO THIS ADMINISTRATIVE USE SEEMS TO BE A FAIRLY LOW INTENSIVE USE OF THE PROPERTY.
>> I'D LIKE TO MAKE SURE, AND I APOLOGIZE, TO MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE IF THIS BECOMES AN
OFFICE IT WILL NOT BE FOR PATIENTS, IS THAT HOW I UNDERSTAND IT.
>> IT CAN NEVER BE FOR PATIENTS WITHOUT COMING BACK TO US FOR ANOTHER CHANGE, ONLY FOR ADMINISTRATIVE
OFFICES. >> IT NOT A WAY TO CIRCUMVENT TO GET SOMETHING
THE NEIGHBORHOOD DIDN'T WANT. >> NO.
>> DID I HEAR THE OPTION FOR EDUCATION OR DAY CARE TO STAY IN THE -- IS THAT STILL AN
OPTION? >> IT WILL STILL BE IN THE ADDED USE.
ADDED OPTION TO USE. >> SO YOU COULD SCALE DOWN THE FACILITY USE
OF DAY CARE AND ADD IN ADMINISTRATIVE USE IN THAT SAME BUILDING AND POSSIBLY HAVE DUAL
-- >> THEY WON'T DO THAT.
>> THEY WILL HAVE OFFICES BUT THEY HAVEN'T TAKEN AWAY THE ABILITY TO GO BACK TO A DAY
CARE IN THE FUTURE. >> IF THEY WANT TO GO BACK TODAY CARE, THEY
CAN. >> ALL RIGHT.
>> CALL THE ROLL. >> I HAVE AN ORDINANCE TO REZONE PROPERTY
AT 835 RED-GATE AVENUE.
DISPENSE WITH THE CHARTER REQUIREMENT FOR READING THE ORDINANCE AND ADOPT.
MR. BURFOOT. >> AYE.
>> MR. PROTOGYROU. >> AYE.

SOMEBODY ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION OBJECTED, SO I WISH IT WAS -- I WISH SENTARA HAD WORKED
WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD MORE, MAYBE THEY COULD HAVE BUT MY VOTE IS NO
>> DR. WHIBLEY. >> TOMMY, THERE WAS LOTS OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE
