2003 Minutes & Agendas: Minutes - January 28, 2003 (Special)

Wednesday, January 28, 2003, 7:16 p.m.

A quorum being present at Centerville City Hall, 250 North Main Street, Centerville, Utah, the special meeting of the Centerville City Planning Commission was called to order at 7:16 p.m. by Chairman Brian Hulse.

Aric Jensen, Community Development Director, displayed a map of Centerville City emphasizing the basic services available and areas that are better suited and easily accessible for multi-family housing. He stated the services are better located such that multi-family housing is suited south of Chase Lane.

Lewis Nielsen asked if there are any plans for a freeway interchange at Lund Lane. Mr. Jensen replied that ten years ago UDOT wanted to construct an interchange at Glover Lane but Farmington City rejected the plans. However, Farmington has recently asked UDOT to revisit this possibility, as they would like to establish a business park on the west side of Glover Lane.

Residential Policies

Chairman Hulse expressed concern in the inconsistencies of housing developments which make the development of land extremely difficult and expensive. The General Plan states that "Pineae Greenhouses will eventually be single-family housing", which is incorrect and must be removed.

North Frontage Residential Area

The majority of this property has been developed.

Parrish Lane Commercial Area

The Planning Commission discussed concerns about the depth of the Albertson’s and Parrish Lane Center and the single-family residential behind it. The Commission also discussed the City property located west of 400 West, which is no longer owned by the City and must be taken out of the General Plan.

Susan Brown asked if the General Plan is binding. Chairman Hulse replied the General Plan is a binding document but it is not controlling. It is a plan that is consistent with the reality that allows uses that are appropriate. As the city grows, the General Plan is used to make commercial and residential areas compatible. Aric Jensen stated the General Plan gives people a general feel of what will happen.

Pineae Greenhouses

The General Plan states there must be a buffer around the Pineae Greenhouses. It is believed there already is a buffer surrounding the property, but this will be verified.

Community Facilities

The Planning Commission agreed that xeriscaping should be encouraged in all residential and commercial developments, not just the Business Park area.

Colonial Building Supply Property

Ken Averett expressed concern on having a residential development on this property because of the stress it will place on the City’s infrastructure. Lee Duncan said the focus should be the use of the property as a transition from high-commercial to single-family, but 400 West must be improved before any building is allowed on the property.

Staff will rewrite the changes discussed for the General Plan and a draft will be available by January 31, 2003. The draft will be discussed at the February 12, 2003 Planning Commission meeting.


Aric Jensen reported the Old Town Site General Plan amendment is scheduled to be completed in two months. A citizens committee should be formed to discuss what the citizens in this area would like to see take place.


Brian Hulse made a motion to approve the December 11, 2002 Planning Commission meeting minutes as amended. Lewis Nielsen seconded the motion, which was approved by unanimous vote (4-0). Ken Averett and Lee Duncan abstained from voting, as they were not present at the meeting.

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


Brian Hulse, Chairman
Connie Larson, Recording Secretary
