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,
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
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.
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.
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
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).

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).
