Aric Jensen, Planner, Davis County


The Planning Commission viewed a CD of sections of the Shorelands Plan, and Aric Jensen, Davis County Planner, displayed a map of the Shorelands Plan for the Planning Commission to view.

The Planning Commission generally agreed there should be no construction allowed west of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Mr. Jensen said the County believes Centerville should determine what to do and focus on the areas that are suitable ground at a minimum of 4,217 elevation without using fill. Staff will research the land west of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad to see if it has been dedicated or preserved as part of the mitigation program for the Legacy Parkway.

The Planning Commission agreed on the following:

1. The proposed Shorelands Plan maps as recommended by staff are acceptable and should be adopted.

2. Staff will send a notice to the property owners that may be affected by the Shorelands Plan when the public hearing is held.

3. Focus building on natural land at 4,217 elevation, but there is not a specific prohibition on bringing in fill. The City wants reasonable restrictions on fill. Caution should be used to determine if construction should be allowed on fill. Staff should propose reasonable regulations that should limit the amount of fill allowed in rules for the Business Park Zone.

4. Staff will research what land is dedicated west of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad.

5. The amount of fill allowed in the Business Park Zone will be incorporated into the General Plan.

6. Transfer Development Rights (TDR) will be researched as a possible plan for Centerville. It was suggested that the TDR program may be a good tool for Centerville to create development where best allowable. Any implementation of the TDR program should be based upon a proven model program used in Utah. Probably the Wasatch Front reference to a TDR program should be included in the General Plan. It was suggested the Shorelands Plan be placed in either the section dealing with trails or another appropriate section.

Paul Allred stated that staff is concerned if there are too many restrictions, there could be economic repercussions for Centerville.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:57 p.m.
