Applicable Regulatory Agency Regulations on the 109.65
Acre Lot 1A-B Re-Subdivision Plat of Lot 1, Motorola, Inc., Ed Bluestein Facility as recorded in document No. 2000900045, Official Public Records of Travis County, Texas.
This platted Lot is part of the original Motorola 219.192 acre Subdivision recorded on July 9, 1974 in Book 69, Page 84 as the Motorola, Inc. MOS Production Facility Subdivision. This Subdivision Project was initiated by the filing of a subdivision application with the City of Austin on March, 12 1974.
The City of Austin annexed the Property pursuant to Annexation Case C7a-75-011 on November 13, 1975.
The City adopted permanent conforming zoning to the then existing industrial uses pursuant to Zoning Case File C14-75-126 on August 12, 1976.
In 1988, Motorola vacated its original Plat by Instrument recorded in Volume 10584, Page 200, Deed Records of Travis County, Texas in order to replat the 219.192 acre Lot into a 228.146 acre Lot 1, Motorola, Inc., Ed Bluestein Facility Subdivision in Case Files C85-87-014.
This new Plat was recorded in Volume 87, Page 147B-147C, Plat Records of Travis County, Texas on February 16, 1988.
The Plat Notes on this subsequent Plat approved by the City of Austin expressly authorized the reservation by the Owner of the use of the plat dedicated Drainage Easements for the maintenance of existing improvements (including habitable structures) and, without a license agreement, to use the dedicated drainage easements for recreational uses and facilities; utilities, including generation facilities and service lines, both existing and proposed; and driveway crossings and internal roadways whether existing or proposed. The only requirement was that any proposed facilities within the drainage easement would be subject to a waterway development permit approved by the City of Austin. The Plat Notes require that any new proposed habitable structures within or abutting the easements of the One Hundred Year Flood Plain must conform to the Flood Insurance Administration’s standards as administered by the City of Austin. Finally, the Plat Notes authorized existing fence crossings in the drainage easement provided that such fences did not restrict the flow of water.
Following the re-subdivision in 1988 Motorola submitted various site plans to the City of Austin as various facilities within the Project were constructed. One of the site plan applications was filed by Motorola in 1988 in Site 20 Development Permit File No.SP-98-0363D for the construction of the South I.W. Collection Improvements and East Irrigation Pond. This Plan Application was approved by the Development Services Department on October 15, 1988 with the Note “Pursuant to the Interim Land Development Ordinance 970905-A the Project is submitted to comply with regulations and ordinances in effect on March 12, 1974 (the date the first Motorola subdivision plat was submitted).
In approving this Note the City acknowledged that the Plan application had vested property rights to continue the Motorola Project initiated with the filing of the original Motorola subdivision application in March of 1974 and that the vacation of that Plat to replat the Property into the 1 Lot Motorola, Inc., Ed Bluestein Facility Subdivision in 1988 did not terminate the original 1974 Project’s vested property rights to be subject only to the rules, regulations, ordinances and requirements in effect on March 12, 1974. Accordingly, the Project is not subject to the Cut and Fill Regulations of the Comprehensive Watershed Ordinance; the net site area calculations of the Comprehensive Watershed Ordinance; nor the restrictions on construction on steep slopes under the Comprehensive Watershed Ordinance so long as the additional development of the Property is consistent with the original project endeavor as that term is defined in Chapter 245 of the Local Government Code. The Property is zoned “LI” which allows for 80% impervious cover on the gross site area of the Property.
Chapter 245 Local Government Code permits a property owner to continue or complete a project under the rules, regulations, ordinances and requirements in effect when the project was initiated. The Motorola Project was initiated on March 12, 1974 with the filing of the original subdivision plat.
