DISCUSSION - Senior Housing proposal for Chase Lane and Frontage Road.

Paul Allred, Community Development Director, reported that Mr. Holloway and Mr. Johnson wish to build a senior apartment complex on the corner of Chase Lane and the Frontage Road. He explained that this parcel was previously approved for a conditional use permit for a senior assisted living project. He stated that assisted living centers have been overbuilt in this area and are not an option for HUD funding at this time. Therefore, the applicants wish to discuss with the Planning Commission some different development options, in order to allow for such a use on this site. Mr. Allred explained that currently the General Plan does not allow for anything but single-family homes in this area and it would appear that the HHSF (Health and Human Service Facility) Zone would not allow this use either. He offered the Planning Commission some different options which could allow for this use, these included: amending the General Plan, amending the HHSF Zone to include this type of use, or simply rezone the land to R-3 which would allow for such a use. Mr. Allred explained that a senior apartment project would likely need to be a deed restricted use, which would allow the City to maintain some control.

Doyle Johnson, 3622 South 800 West, Bountiful, stated that they are trying to obtain some tax exempt bonding from HUD for this project, but that this, too, has proved to be difficult since assisted living is so overbuilt and facilities are losing money. He explained these will not be upscale buildings, but rather low income housing and without the funding from HUD they will not move forward with the project. He stated that HUD requires all senior housing finances to be audited by them for the first five years and since the State regulates what percentage of the population can be elderly (55 +), this project would only be allowed to accommodate seniors; therefore, a deed restriction may not be necessary. Mr. Johnson stated that they would be working with Hospice Care and other services which could come to the facility if requested, but would not be provided on a regular basis.

Todd Holloway, 795 South 400 East, explained to the Planning Commission that this would be a U-shaped multi-level apartment complex with a center courtyard. He stated all units would be one floor and approximately 750 square feet. He stated that he is hoping to build between 80 and 100 units, but is looking for direction from the Planning Commission in this regard. He stated that there would be on-site management and that he intends to maintain ownership of the entire project.

Overall, Commission members were in favor of this project and feel there is a need for this type of use in the city. They stated that they would be willing to look at a sketch plan that shows parking, landscaping, design standards, and density. They further stated they would like the buildings to be no more than two level and the entire project should not exceed 80 units. They stated that they would be willing to work with the applicants and staff on some zoning changes, but could not guarantee approval.

DISCUSSION - Rick Bangerter’s proposal for Commercial Condominiums.

Paul Allred, Community Development Director, reported that Rick Bangerter has approached the City about the possibility of selling units within the commercial project he has built. Currently, the City does not have a way of doing this. Mr. Allred explained that several surrounding cities do allow for buildings to be parceled or condominiumized. Staff is not overly concerned that this might be allowed. The only major concern staff foresees is appropriate access to each unit and the proper maintenance of common facilities.

The Planning Commission, as a whole, stated they are in favor of commercial condominiums and directed staff to go ahead with the process of developing an ordinance for such.

DISCUSSION - Feedback from the Planning Commission on Landscape Ordinance changes.

Paul Allred, Community Development Director, went through the changes made to the Landscape Ordinance with the Planning Commission, especially those suggested by Brian Hulse. Mr. Allred made note of some additional minor changes that the Planning Commission suggested. Overall, the Planning Commission was pleased with the draft. They decided to consider Councilman Gold’s draft and come back at a later date to review a revised ordinance then.

The workshop adjourned at 7:00 p.m.

 

Bruce Powell, Chairman
Kathleen Streadbeck, Recording Secretary
