MINUTES REVIEW AND APPROVAL

Chairman Hulse made a motion to approve the December 11, 2002 Planning Commission meeting minutes as amended. Scott Vaterlaus seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (3-0). Three votes is not a quorum (will need to be reapproved when there is a quorum).

PUBLIC HEARING - CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - EXTREME AUTO IS PROPOSING A POLE SIGN AT 30 FEET LOCATED AT 707 NORTH 1000 WEST #5 IN THE B-P ZONE. MERRILL SHERIFF, PROPERTY OWNER AND JUSTIN MANNING, APPLICANT.

NOTE: (It was assumed the Planning Commission reviewed the back-up material; therefore, the introduction by staff was not given on this item). Chairman Hulse explained that Justin Manning, applicant, is proposing a pole sign that would be a conditional use and the sign would be 30-feet tall and the signage area will be 84 square feet.

Chairman Hulse asked Mr. Manning if the other tenants in the building will be using the sign. Mr. Manning replied the other tenants will not use the sign. Chairman Hulse expressed concern that Mr. Sheriff, property owner, understand that this will be the only sign allowed for this property.

Mr. Duncan asked what would happen if other tenants wanted to put a sign up next to Extreme Auto’s sign. Aric Jensen, Community Development Director, explained that another sign cannot be placed unless Mr. Sheriff decides to subdivide his property. Mr. Jensen also said there are train tracks that separate the freeway, along with a significant grade which lessens the perceived height of the sign.

Chairman Hulse opened the public hearing for comments. There was no one wishing to comment and the public hearing was closed.

Chairman Hulse made a motion to approve the conditional use permit as requested for a freestanding sign that is 30-feet in height with a signage area of 84 square feet.

Findings:

1. The size and scale is appropriate for the parcel in question.

2. The need for the sign, based on the nature of the business, has been demonstrated.

3. The relative location of the sign will have a minimum impact on the area

Conditions:

1. This sign will only be used by one tenant in the building at any given time. At this time by Extreme Auto.

2.This will be the only sign allowed for this parcel on which the building is located.

3. The sign must be constructed and oriented such that it can withstand the wind loads of the area.

Lewis Nielsen seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (4-0).

TEMPORARY CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - SEASONAL RETAIL SALES FOR PINEAE GREENHOUSES, INC. LOCATED AT 300 SOUTH MAIN STREET IN THE C-1 ZONE. BRUCE PITT, PROPERTY OWNER AND JEFF GOLD, APPLICANT.

Aric Jensen explained the applicant has operated at this location for several years, but it is required that he renew the temporary conditional use permit each year.

Chairman Hulse said he talked with Councilman Brian Gold earlier that day regarding the fact that the strip of land on the north side of the property and the parking area is owned by PAK Investments. Chairman Hulse asked Mr. Jeff Gold to verify with PAK Investments that it is acceptable to hold seasonal sales on their strip of property.

Scott Vaterlaus made a motion to approve the temporary conditional use permit based on the following conditions:

1. Temporary signs limited to 40 square feet on both 300 South and Main Street, and permits must be obtained for signage.

2. Hours of operation limited to 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. No Sunday sales.

3. No vehicular access from Main Street.

4. Limit tracking of dirt/mud onto public streets and keep dust at a minimum.

5. Established time limit for permit is from March 10, 2003 to July 31, 2003, and then from September 5, 2003 to November 5, 2003.

6. All loading of inventory must be done on site and not in the public right-of-way.

7.Remove structures from the site at the end of use.

8. Obtain approval from PAK Investments.

Chairman Hulse seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (4-0).

DISCUSSION - CENTERVILLE ELEMENTARY LOCATED AT 400 NORTH 200 EAST, NEEDS ADDITIONAL PARKING. DAVIS COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, PROPERTY OWNER.

Aric Jensen reported that during the December 17, 2002 City Council meeting, the Principal of Centerville Elementary, Dr. Taylor, was directed to pursue the possibility of acquiring the property to the east of the school for additional parking. The City has not heard from Dr. Taylor.

DISCUSSION OF THE OLD TOWN SITE - AREA LOCATED EAST OF CITY HALL AND CENTERVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, AND IS BORDERED APPROXIMATELY BY 300 NORTH, 300 EAST, 100 NORTH AND 100 EAST. PETITIONER IS A GROUP OF PROPERTY OWNERS REPRESENTED BY KEN HAWKES.

Aric Jensen explained he made a proposal to the City Council to study the area from Parrish Lane to Porter Lane and from 400 East to Main Street as part of an inclusion into the old Town Site. A group of property owners came to the City and asked that a section of land be rezoned from R-2 to R-1-85 or R-1-10. One of the property owners recently passed away who owns one acre of property in the middle of this section in question. The property owners are concerned that the property could be developed into a multi-family project. Mr. Jensen said all of the required signatures could not be obtained and the City Council has been asked to review this section of property and to pursue it as a City project. Staff was directed in the last City Council meeting to present findings and then the City Council will decide whether or not to sponsor a rezone petition for this area.

The Planning Commission discussed the existing uses and requirements for zone changes. It must be determined if it makes sense to include the section of property in the Old Town Site. All surrounding areas of this section should also be included in the study.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR’S REPORT

1. Upcoming agenda items.

a. There will be a public hearing at the January 22, 2003 Planning Commission meeting to discuss the northwest neighborhood, specifically the proposal from Fred Hales.

b. Gary Hassenflu development on Chase Lane.

2. Miscellaneous

a. Mr. Jensen distributed a Centerville Zoning Ordinance Update schedule from Steve Thacker that will require work sessions with the City Council the first and third Wednesday of each month throughout 2003.

b. Mr. Jensen reported on the Brigman property located at 1925 North Main. He met with Mrs. Brigman and she wants to combine Lots 1 & 2. The old barn has been removed and Balling Engineering will redraft the plat, and then it will be taken to the City Council for approval.

c. Preliminary plans for the Tolman property are being currently reviewed by staff.

CHASE LANE VILLAGE

Mark Anderson stated he proposed last November to extend the Chase Lane Village and the three-acre parcel to the south. Mr. Anderson has met with the Chase Lane people and they are in favor of the proposal. Mr. Anderson said he needs a zone change on the three-acre parcel. Mr. Jensen said he and Mr. Anderson spoke in a development meeting in early December and Mr. Anderson was instructed to obtain a letter from the homeowners association to include this property. Staff is in favor of the proposal. Mr. Anderson was instructed to contact Donna Wilkinson to have this item placed on a Planning Commission agenda subsequent to the General Plan amendment.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 p.m.

 

Brian Hulse, Chairman
