PUBLIC HEARING - AMENDED SITE PLAN - PROPOSED CHANGES TO AN EXISTING WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS TOWER FACILITY LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 1150 WEST 725 NORTH IN THE BP ZONE. BARTILE ROOFS, INC., PROPERTY OWNER AND CINGULAR WIRELESS, APPLICANT.

Kem Weaver, Intern, explained Cingular Wireless is proposing to amend the current site plan that was previously approved under AT&T at 1150 West 725 North. The applicant would like to add an array of antennas to be located on a 1 00-foot monopole, with the addition of a metal platform and metal cabinets placed at the base of the monopole. The fence will be extended 18 feet and drought resistant landscaping will be added to meet the ten percent requirement.

Staff recommends approval of the amended site plan based on the following conditions:

1. Full compliance with the conditional use permit and any and all regulations regarding the operation of the site.

2. The Planning Commission's approval for the applicant to use drought resistant landscaping for the site, per the new Landscape Ordinance approved by the CityCouncil on May 21, 2002.

3. Staff review landscape plan per ordinance.

Acting Chairman Paula Tew opened the public hearing for comments. There was no one wishing to comment and the public hearing was closed.

Ken Averett made a motion to approve the amended site plan based on the following findings:

1. The use is generally acceptable for the zone.

2. The use is for the overall benefit of the community and surrounding neighborhood.

3. The use is in compliance with the General Plan.

Recommendations:

1. Full compliance with the conditional use permit and any and all regulations regarding the operation of the site.

2. The Planning Commission's approval for the applicant to use drought resistant landscaping for the site, per the new Landscaping Ordinance approved by the City Council on May 21, 2002.

3. Maintain consistency by allowing a reduced frontage for the site with the finding that it creates an attractive and efficient use of the property.

Brian Hulse seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0).

WORK SESSION - GENERAL DISCUSSION REGARDING CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT AND PRELIMINARY PLAT ISSUES FOR PROPOSED BAMBERGER STATION PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT (PUD) - DON ATKINSON, AGENT FOR OWNER.

Paul Allred, Community Development Director, explained Don Atkinson and J. T. Clark are representing the Clark property to receive direction in anticipation of their submittal for a conditional use permit.

Mr. Atkinson, Agent, said his intent is to focus on the architectural concept and the landscaping design. The Planning Commission viewed a proposed concept architectural rendering of the Bamberger Station PUD. Mr. Atkinson explained the owner would like to do drought-resistant landscaping, which would include Buffalo Grass mixed with Canadian Blue Grass that would only need to be watered one or twice a month.

Mr. Atkinson indicated the market prices far the units will be $200,000 or less to try and attract younger families. Mr. Atkinson showed a potential floor plan with interchangeable floor plans that would all fit within the proposed lot areas. The Planning Commission indicated they would like to see recessed garages and that they are opposed to "snout houses" that have a large protruding garage facing the street. The architecture is proposed as mostly brick and siding. Other Planning Commission suggestions included variations in elevations, mixed one and two story units and highlighting front porches. The applicant was encouraged to contact Steve Blackham

The concept plan features rambler-style units with four units connected together. The exterior materials would be brick and siding of which the Planning Commission were in favor. Paul Allred explained that according to the applicants engineer, problems on the geometry of the land make it infeasible to do a rear-entry garage on the units. Also, the surrounding property owners said they would prefer to view landscaping instead of garages. Staff strongly urged the applicants to develop rear-entry units on a rear road prior to the conceptual approval hearing.

DISCUSSION - COOK STORAGE FACILITY LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 600 SOUTH 500 WEST IN THE C-3 ZONE - JEFF COOK, REPRESENTATIVE FOR OWNER.

Paul Allred explained he recently talked with Jeff Cook and Steve Thacker, City Manager, about the Cook Storage Facility. Mr. Cook stated that as property owners, he and his family feel they have not generally been treated well by the City over the past years on a number of land use issues.

Mr. Allred said the Cook Storage Facility is located in a C-3 Zone, which used to be an M-1 Zone which is no longer in existence. In 1979, the Cooks were given approval for a storage facility on a 150 ft. x 150 ft. piece of property. Mr. Cook has expanded the storage facility beyond the original approval and complaints have been received on the condition and expansion of the property. The Cooks stated to staff they are not interested in developing the existing storage site into housing as recommended by the General Plan.

In 1996, the City Council and Planning Commission outlawed mini storage facilities and removed them from the C-3 Zone. Reasons these types of uses were prohibited are that they provide little property or sales tax and there tends to be a higher rate of crime associated with this use.

Brian Hulse made a motion to direct staff to prepare a letter from the Planning Commission to the property owner stating that he will be allowed to have the 150 ft. x 150 ft. use that was originally allowed, and that no expansion will be allowed.

Findings:

1. It is injurious to the public health and safety.

2. Is not in keeping with the General Plan for what is intended in this area.

3. Is not in compliance with the current permitted use on the site.

Grant Talbot seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0).

DISCUSSION - O'BRIEN GLASS

Scott Vaterlaus commented on the large accessory building that Mr. O'Brien has built on his property that is next to the Shaela Park Subdivision. Mr. Allred commented that to his recollection, a building permit was given for a recreation/game room, garage, and several vehicles are also being stored in or near the building. The Planning Commission directed staff to investigate if this type of use would be allowed on this property, particularly the number of vehicles being stored on the site.

DIRECTOR'S REPORT

1. The City Council/Planning Commission retreat will be held on June 22, 2002 at the Logan City Police Department.

a. The next Planning Commission meeting will be held on June 12, 2002. Two hillside subdivisions will be discussed, along with a proposed rezone by Bruce Pitt.

b. A new part-time volunteer intern will be working on a General Plan map and statistical analysis of the quadrants of the city during the summer.

At 8:00 p.m., Brian Hulse made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Grant Talbot seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0).
