AMENDED SITE PLAN - MICHAEL’S MAIN STREET GARAGE - LOCATED AT 346 SOUTH MAIN STREET IN THE C-1 ZONE - DISCUSS CONDITION OF APPROVAL, ROGER CRANNEY, PROPERTY OWNER AND APPLICANT

Blaine Lutz, Interim Community Development Director, explained in September of 2001, the Main Street Garage applied for a site plan approval. Mr. Cranney is now requesting an amendment to the site plan by not installing the "curb wall" at the north boundary of the property and the adjoining property.

The Planning Commission viewed a photograph of the property.

Mr. Cranney, property owner, explained that the residential property owner to the north will not be able to turn around and properly exit their driveway onto Main Street if the wall is installed. He also said he believes the wall would distract from his property. Mr. Cranney presented the perpetual easement in favor of his property for the driveway across the neighboring property.

The Planning Commission reviewed and discussed the site plan.

Chairman Hulse made a motion to table the request for an amended site plan until the next Planning Commission meeting to allow staff time to research the Off-Street Parking Ordinance. Chairman Hulse withdrew his motion.

Steven Bateman made a motion to allow the amendment of the site plan as described per the reasons stated by Mr. Cranney, subject to staff’s findings that it is within the legal authority of the Planning Commission to approve a special exception allowing two curb cuts to remain on the site not withstanding the 100-foot frontage requirement set forth in the off-street parking ordinance. The Planning Commission findings are that it advances the general welfare of the community, it is not deleterious toward the health, welfare or safety of the community. The neighboring property owner will be allowed to use the existing property to protect against backing-out into the Main Street traffic. Ken Averett seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0).

DISCUSSION - TEXT AMENDMENT - ZONING MAP AMENDMENT - DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR 19.1 ACRES OF LAND FROM A-1 TO PLSD (PORTER LAND SPECIAL DISTRICT) ZONE LOCATED AT 262 WEST 400 SOUTH (PORTER LANE). NURSERY PROPERTIES, PROPERTY OWNER AND STONEGATE PARTNERS LLC, PETITIONERS

Lisa Romney, Deputy City Attorney, said a draft of the Porter Lane Special District (PLSD) Zone Text Amendment dated October 22, 2002 was previously given to each Planning Commissioner.

She said the three steps that will be followed are:

1. Adopt an ordinance (text amendment).

2. File rezone application.

3. Development plan to be submitted with rezone application.

Chairman Hulse asked how much of the acreage can be rezoned in one application. Lisa Romney replied that any area to be rezoned should have a minimum acreage requirement. Specific wording will be added to the amendment.

At the November 13, 2002 Planning Commission meeting, a public hearing will be held on the PLSD Zone Amendment text, the rezone application, and development plan. A special public hearing will be held by the City Council on November 19, 2002.

The Planning Commission reviewed the preliminary draft of the new PLSD Zone and made suggestions.

Dave Tolman, owner of Stonegate Partners LLC, said he is asking for a minimum of five-foot setback on the side yards. He said there will be at least a 20-foot setback from the back of the sidewalk, and no garage or house will be closer than 20 feet from the back of the sidewalk. All rear yards will be 30 feet long, with the corner lot a minimum of 15 feet from the back of the sidewalk.

Mr. Tolman distributed a concept plan of his proposed development.

Steve Thacker stated staff will allow the five-foot sidewalk, as long as the homeowners association will be responsible for snow removal on the sidewalks.

The City Council and Planning Commission will have a joint meeting on Tuesday, November 5, 2002 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. to discuss the proposed text amendment, zoning map amendment, and development plan for the Porter Lane Nursery properties.

The City Council and Planning Commission members are invited to attend interviews for the Community Development Director position on Friday, November 8, 2002 at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. The meetings will be held in the Council room.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:33 p.m.
