SUBDIVISION - FINAL AND MODIFY CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - WALTON LANE TOWN HOMES LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 70 WEST WALTON LANE IN THE R-2 ZONE. ROBERT HOLMES, PROPERTY OWNER AND APPLICANT

Kem Weaver, Intern, explained at the February 27, 2002 Planning Commission meeting, staff was asked to provide more detail for the conditional use which is as follows:

a. All rear yards for units within the project shall be no less than 19 feet to property line instead of 20 feet. Storage garages may be located no closer then one foot from the east property line. Unit 5 may have a side yard to the east property line of no less than six-feet. Unit 2 may have a side yard setback no less than one foot from the property line adjacent to the existing duplex. The detached garage for Unit 1 may have a side yard of no less than one foot.

b. All driveways for units within the project shall be no less than 20 feet from the edge of the private roadway.

c. That additional trees (10-12) be planted on the site as shown on the revised landscaping plan submitted by the applicant on 2/5/02. All trees must be at least two inch caliper or larger.

d. That all dwelling units within the site be architecturally compatible with each other, including the existing unit on Walton Lane, to the extent possible. Also, that at least one enclosed storage garage unit be assigned to each dwelling unit as deemed desirable by the Homeowners Association. These enclosed storage areas must be constructed and available to any individual unit within one year of completion of any dwelling. All enclosed storage units must be architecturally compatible with the dwellings. Architecture of the four new units must be per the approved architectural plans.

e. Decorative fencing (three rail type) along the perimeter of the site is required. The west boundary may stay as is and the east boundary must replace the slats. The applicant may request that the fencing along the south boundary may be dropped as a requirement of approval by requesting a further amendment to the Conditional Use at a later date.

f. Three (3) ten-foot tall decorative/security yard lights are required to be located on the site. Additionally, motion sensitive lighting must be added to the upper walls of Units 3 and 4 to provide lighting for the play area.

i. A Homeowners Association must be implemented for the maintenance of the project.

j. Small rear yard vinyl fencing partitions will be allowed between units to screen limited common areas (patios). These fences may be no more than six-feet tall and no more than ten-feet in length. In no case shall these privacy partitions be extended to fence in a rear yard area.

Robert Holmes, applicant, said the small rear fence should be at least six-feet tall, not four feet, which the Planning Commission agreed. Mr. Holmes also said there are four poplar trees on the property that are nearly dead and need to be removed. The Planning Commission agreed the poplar trees may be removed, but that other trees that need to be removed must have prior approval of the Community Development Director.

Mr. Holmes stated he will maintain the Homeowners Association.

Brian Hulse made a motion to approve the conditional use permit with the following stipulations that are to be included:

The detached garage for Unit 1 may have a side yard of no less than one foot.

SITE PLAN - FINAL - PUBLIC FACILITY (WATER TANK) LOCATED AT 700 EAST PARISH LANE IN THE A-1 ZONE. RANDY RANDALL AND FRED CAMPBELL, APPLICANTS FOR CENTERVILLE CITY

Kem Weaver, Intern, reported the Planning Commission approved both the conceptual and the conditional use permit for the water tank at the February 13, 2002 meeting as a discussion item at the February 27, 2002 Planning Commission meeting, the Planning Commission requested that more vegetation be added and a rock wall be placed around the front perimeter of the water tank. The setback regulations of 30 feet cannot be met for an A-1 Zone because of the seismic faults that are near the tank, and because the tank must be set at a precise elevation in order to function. The front setback will be seven feet from the southwest corner of the building to the property line and 13 feet from the northwest corner of the building to the property line.

Staff recommends approval of the final site plan.

Fred Campbell, City Engineer, said that more trees have been added in front of the tank with a drip irrigation system. There will also be a natural weber rock wall constructed around the tank. The tank will be buried with 18 inches of soil on top that will allow for light vehicles to be able to drive on top of the tank to do light maintenance work. A chainlink fence will surround the tank and the access road.

Paula Tew made a motion to approve the final site for the proposed Parrish Creek water tank located at Parrish Lane and 700 East. The findings are that it is reasonable and necessary to grant a special exception allowed in the Planning and Zoning Ordinance Section 12-340-7, in that it is necessary and desirable and will not be contrary to the public interest, and it addresses special circumstances as attached to the property and/or this facility in that there are no reasonable alternatives for the location and/or sighting of this facility in reference to the setback regulations. Steven Bateman seconded the motion.

Paula Tew amended the motion to also include that the language be removed from the conditional use stipulating that it is no longer necessary to remove the old tank since it is still secure.

Steven Bateman seconded the amended motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (6-0).

b. Paula Tew reported that Sherri Lindstrom has been talking with Sorenson Simonsen of Cooper Roberts Simonsen Architects who are doing the library design for the Davis County Library.

This review board would work with developers before they begin designing on what should take place in the Village Center before they come to the Planning Commission.
