AMENDED CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - PUBLIC HEARING - CONSIDER A REQUEST TO AMEND THE CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT FOR EXTREME AUTO’S POLE SIGN LOCATED AT 707 NORTH 1000 WEST #5 IN THE B-P ZONE. JUSTIN MANNING, APPLICANT

Aric Jensen, Community Development Director, explained that Extreme Auto would like a slightly taller sign in order to clear the rail road tracks. The tracks are substantially higher than the ground level of the Business Park and when a train is parked or moving slowly, it further increases a minimum height for a sign to be visible from the freeway. Extreme Auto would like to have a 35-foot sign, which is five feet taller than the present sign. The message area will be 20 feet x 5 feet, and the electronic message board will be eliminated. Mr. Jensen said there is no height requirement for signs in the Business Park. He also said a structural engineer approved the sign and it meets the wind requirements for signs.

Justin Manning, Applicant, said the original sign dimensions were 18' x 4', plus there was a 9' x 2' scrolling electronic message board. He said that they were replacing the electronic sign with a one-foot high sign with their phone number listed on it.

Acting Chairman Scott Vaterlaus opened the public hearing for comments. There was no one wishing to comment, and the public hearing was closed.

Acting Chairman Scott Vaterlaus made a motion to approve the sign as proposed with the conditions that were listed in the original motion, and based on the fact this is in the Business Park Zone, and the location is consistent with signs in this area. Lewis Nielsen seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (6-0).

ZONE MAP AMENDMENT (PUBLIC HEARING PREVIOUSLY HELD ON 02-12-03) PROPOSED REZONE OF APPROXIMATELY 3.0 ACRES FROM A-1 TO R-2 (MEDIUM DENSITY MULTI-FAMILY) LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 1100 NORTH AND FRONTAGE ROAD, MARK ANDERSON, APPLICANT

Aric Jensen explained this item was discussed by the Planning Commission two months ago at the time the Northwest Neighborhood General Plan rewrite was being done. The zone map amendment was tabled until the rewrite could be completed. Mr. Jensen said the petitioner is asking to develop the property in the same fashion as the Chase Lane Village to the extent that it will be part of the Homeowners Association. The issue is the General Plan which speaks in favor and against this petition. The proposed property is surrounded by medium intensity uses, but the General Plan states only four units per acre should be allowed at this distance from services. The applicant is proposing five to six units per acre. Mr. Jensen stated the current Chase Lane Village is 5.5 units per acre.

Aric Jensen stated a public hearing was held on February 12, 2003. Scott Vaterlaus asked for comments from the public. There was no one wishing to comment.

Joel Anderson, representing the applicant, stated there were a number of people from Chase Lane Village who were in favor of the rezone at the public hearing. These people would like to have something similar to Chase Lane Village Phases I and II. Mr. Anderson said the intent is to have the buildings very similar to the first two phases, which were developed by Robert Dewey. Mr. Anderson displayed a preliminary site plan that is based on six units per acre. He said the surrounding area is R-2 and R-3 Zoning, which Mr. Anderson feels is why his property should be zoned R-2.

Ken Averett expressed concern that if six units per acre is approved and the land-use hierarchy says it should be four units per acre, then there could be future density problems if the hierarchy is not followed. Lewis Nielsen commented the property is in the middle of the other two projects, and it will not be zoned to R-1-85, and it will not be commercial. Chairman Hulse said the land-use hierarchy will be "butting up" against other zones. He said the General Plan indicates that "residential density shall be based primarily on their proximity to public services." Yet, the land-use hierarchy says the uses should be consistent with what is surrounding the property.

Lewis Nielsen made a motion to approve the zone map amendment to change the zone designation from A-1 to R-2 with the maximum density of six units per acre.

Conditions:

1. The property must be developed as an extension to Chase Lane Village HOA with no new accesses onto the Frontage Road.

2. A written letter be provided by the president of the Chase Lane Village HOA indicating that the HOA will permit this parcel to be included in the HOA.

Findings:

1. Although in the new General Plan, the distance from services is slightly outside of the boundary of the half-mile, it is felt the overriding condition is the use is consistent in density with the existing Chase Lane Village, and with the proposed uses for the property immediately to the south.

2. It is not injurious to the health, welfare, and safety of the community.

Ann Hewlett seconded the motion, which was approved by a vote of (6-1). Ken Averett was the dissenting vote.

FINAL SITE PLAN - PARK HILLS BOOSTER STATION LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 2100 NORTH 100 EAST. CENTERVILLE CITY, APPLICANT

Aric Jensen explained that in the original motion of January 22, 2003, final site plan approval was not included.

Ann Hewlett made a motion to approve the final site plan for the Park Hills Booster Station located at 2100 North 100 East. Lee Duncan seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (7-0).

FINAL SITE PLAN - CARRINGTON WELL SITE LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 1475 NORTH 50 EAST. CENTERVILLE CITY, APPLICANT.

Aric Jensen explained that Public Works had applied for a building permit, and in his review it was discovered that the minutes of January 22, 2003 didn’t show final approval had been granted.

However, a review of the tape showed that it had. Rather than amend the minutes, he recommended the Commission reconsider it for final approval.

Chairman Hulse made a motion to reapprove the final site plan for the Carrington Well Site consistent with the final site plan that was presented to the Planning Commission on January 22, 2003. Lewis Nielsen seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (7-0).

MINUTES REVIEW AND APPROVAL

Chairman Hulse made a motion to reopen the Planning Commission minutes and review the approval of April 9, 2003. Lee Duncan seconded the motion, which was passed by a vote of (7-0).

Chairman Hulse made a motion to approve the April 9, 2003 Planning Commission meeting minutes as amended. Scott Vaterlaus seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0). Ann Hewlett and Diana Moesinger abstained from voting, as they were not present at the meeting.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR’S REPORT

1. Joint City Council/Planning Commission meeting will be held on May 7, 2003 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss zoning codes.

2. Mr. Jensen distributed a letter from the Centerville Old Town Committee dated April 23, 2003 that reports the findings from the Committee. This item will be discussed at the next Planning Commission meeting.

3. The concept of PUDs and their special application will be discussed at the next Planning Commission meeting.

4. Chairman Hulse said the Mayor and City Council have asked the Planning Commission to review the entire General Plan, not just the northwest quadrant.

The Planning Commission will also discuss accessory rental units and make recommendations to the City Council.

At 8:15 p.m., Chairman Hulse made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Lee Duncan seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (7-0).
