MINUTES REVIEW AND APPROVAL
Minutes of the Planning Commission meeting of August 9, 2000 were
reviewed. Steven Bateman made a motion to approve the Planning Commission
meeting minutes of August 9, 2000 as amended. Scott Vaterlaus seconded the motion
which passed by unanimous vote (5-0).
REZONE - 1.557 ARES FROM A-1 TO C-1 - NORTHWEST CORNER OF
PAGES LANE AND MAIN STREET - CLARK JENKINS, APPLICANT.
Paul Allred explained the Planning Commission previously requested
the applicant amend his petition to reflect a request for R-2 zoning instead
of C-1 zoning based on the following findings:
1. Planning Commission finds the C-1 Zone is not appropriate
for this area after review of the General Plan.
2. The proposed use, medical office with associated internal
use, is an appropriate, necessary and desirable use for this location and
that it will not be injurious to persons or property in the vicinity.
3. At an appropriate time in the future, the City adopt an amended
zoning scheme for Main Street, or for this particular location, that would
ultimately remove the R-2 Zone designation and replace it with a Professional
Office type zone.
Brian Hulse asked if there was anyone wishing to comment on the
rezone. Paul Allred stated that there were no public notices sent for this meeting,
as the Planning Commission indicated there would be none, but the public will
receive notice at the time of the conditional use permit if one is ultimately
Clark Jenkins, applicant, stated an option is in force between
J. C. Penney and a group of physicians in Bountiful for the existing J. C. Penney
building across Pages Lane from this site. They would like to have a surgical
center and medical offices on the main floor. The second floor will be medical
offices with J. C. Penney’s Telemarketing on the same floor. Steven Bateman
asked to what extent Mr. Jenkins’ project would be in harmony with the proposed
use in the J. C. Penney building. Mr. Jenkins replied it would be different
people with professional support. Bountiful City has been giving their support
for proposed use in the J. C. Penney building.
Robynn Parrish, 134 West 850 South
Ms. Parrish stated she wanted to know what was going to happen
with the medical building on the corner of Pages Lane and Main Street. She asked
if the office space will be rented or will they purchase office space. Brian
Hulse explained it is too early in the planning process to determine if the
office space will be leased or purchased. Mr. Allred clarified that the City
does not currently allow office condominiums under the zoning ordinance. Ms.
Parrish said she would like to see more open green space that will tie in with
the surrounding development. Brian Hulse explained that the site plan issues
will be addressed during the conditional use hearing, which will be noticed
to the public.
The Planning Commission requested staff to notify residents living
within 500 feet of the proposed medical building when the next public hearing
will take place.
Paula Tew made a motion to recommend approval of the petition
to change the zoning from A-1 to R-2 on the parcel of land located on the northwest
corner of Pages Lane and Main Street as requested with the findings that it
is reasonable and necessary. It is a desirable zoning at this location and it
is not injurious to persons or property in the vicinity and it is in keeping
with the General Plan. The C-1 Zone is not appropriate for this parcel. Robert
Chamberlain seconded the motion which passed by unanimous vote (6-0).
Brian Hulse said the Planning Commission feels it is appropriate
that the City adopt and amend the zoning scheme for Main Street.
DISCUSSION - POSSIBLE AUTUMN FIELD TRIP TO SEE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENTS.
Paul Allred explained that Steve Blackham, member of the former
Calthorpe Study Committee, has developed a cost study for City officials to
travel to the Sacramento, California area to visit PUD projects. Mr. Blackham
presented this information to the City Council and the City Council felt it
would be useful but they wanted to see how the Planning Commission feels about
the trip. Mr. Allred suggested two Planning Commission members and one City
Council member attend the field trip, along with staff and the City Manager.
The Planning Commission feels the field trip is a good idea.
a. The Porter Lane Nursery property owners are going to be proposing
a property rezone as they are intent on moving. They will probably propose
an R-3 Zone for luxurious town homes.
b. ULCT Training will be held in Salt Lake City on September
13, 2000. Robert Chamberlain, Paula Tew, Grant Talbot, Brian Hulse, and Paul
Allred will be attending the convention.
c. Planning Commission training with URRMA will be held in Layton
on October 18, 2000 with Jody Burnett as the speaker.
d. The Planning Commission viewed a revised conceptual plan
of the public street from the Meadowlands I Subdivision proceeding south to
Pages Lane in the proposed Centerville Commons PUD project, which shows a
slight bend in the street. The Planning Commission overall reacted negatively
to the new street plan as proposed by the developer. Staff was concerned that
it did not meet the intent of the Planning Commission or the City Council
and, therefore, wanted their clarification on the matter in order to avoid
future public protest over the road plan.
e. There will be a joint City Council/Planning Commission meeting
on August 30, 2000 at 6:00 p.m. The items to be discussed are:
1. Affordable housing plan.
2. Home Occupation and Cottage Zone.
3. Streamlining development process.
Grant Talbot stated he has received feedback on the Steeplechase
Subdivision and the road that is being constructed next to Pheasantbrook. It
appears the road will be next to the fence which is unacceptable. Paul Allred
stated there should be an eight-foot buffer of heavy landscaping next to the
fence and road. Staff will monitor the location of the right-of-way to make
sure it is in the correct place, as approved.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 p.m.

Connie Larson, Recording Secretary
