INVOCATION: Scott Vaterlaus


The Planning Commission attended a field trip prior to this meeting to view the northwest corner of Pages Lane and Main Street.


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).


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 proposed.

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.

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.


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.


Brian Hulse, Acting Chairman
Connie Larson, Recording Secretary
