WIRELESS POWER PLAN

Consider a request for an amendment to the Wireless Development Master Plan for Verizon Wireless network. Technologies Associates is the representative. Case No. 2008-WMP-001

Planner Ray Snyder said the City has on file a master plan for wireless service. Staff reviews the master plan when a new request comes in. The applicant is Verizon and they would like to install a wall mount antenna on Roccos Restaurant on Airport Road. The request today is also to have this site added to our existing master plan.

Ray pointed out the Verizon Wireless letter asking for a wall mounted antenna. Ray said staff recommends approval.

Commissioner Campbell asked if they are approving the specific site or are they approving the location of the antenna on the building? Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth replied today it is just to change their master plan location that is being requested tonight.

Planner Ray Snyder stated that this will not go through to City Council, it is for approval by Planning Commission only. Ray believes that the antenna will not be noticeable - it should be only 6-8 ft. above Roccos roof line.

Commissioner Campbell said if they approve the site location, could they come back with a taller signal later in the future. Ray said yes, but they still have to come back before this board again.

Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said the height cannot be higher than 10 ft. and it needs to be 4 ft. away from the building where it is mounted. Joseph went over the other height requirements outlined in the City Code for different styles of antennas used.

No representative from Verizon was present. Chairman Bracken felt it should be tabled due to the fact there is no one here to respond to their questions and Chairman Bracken would have a conflict of interest therefore there would not be enough commissioners here for a vote..

MOTION: Commissioner Campbell made a motion to table this item until the next meeting at which time there should be a representative present for Verizon. Commissioner Nobis seconded the motion. Commissioner Hullinger voted aye. Motion passes.


ZONE CHANGE REQUESTS - PUBLIC HEARINGS (5:00 P.M.)

A. Consider a zone change from A-1 (Agricultural) to PD (Planned Development) on approximately 3.0 acres. The applicant is Mr. Rod Orton. The representative is Mr. Greg

Mathis. The project is for Hobby Huts; create individualized spaces (with HOA & CC&Rs) ranging from 2,000 to 6,000 sq. ft. to conduct personal hobbies or store personal vehicles upon. The site is located on the north side of 1800 North Street at about 2172 West. Case No. 2007-ZC-026

Community Development Director Bob Nicholson said this was last discussed back in December 2007. At that time it was tabled in order to give the applicant time to prepare CC&Rs for the project which would spell out in more detail the permitted and prohibited uses.

The location is Tuweap Drive and 1800 North and is currently zoned A-1. The request is to change the zone to Planned Development. The request to is sell individual spaces range from 2,000 sq. ft. to 6,000 sq. ft. for persons to conduct personal hobbies or to store personal vehicles. Bob went over the staff comments;

1. This is a proposal to sell individual spaces ranging from 2,000 sq. ft. to 6,000 sq. ft. for persons to conduct personal hobbies or to store personal vehicles (e.g. auto collector storage, motorcycle storage, or RV vehicle storage). The hobbies mentioned in the attached PD text include wood-working, art studio, photography lab, model building, and similar uses. All the above uses would be personal hobbies and no commercial, public, or business use would be allowed.
2. The setbacks for the PD commercial zone would apply; 25' front landscape setback from all public streets, and 10' for side and rear setbacks.
3. The building design shall be similar to the existing building on-site. Exterior walls shall be colored masonry, and all roofs shall be gable roofs with a minimum of 24" overhang on sides, and a minimum of 6' overhand across the front. The building shall be restricted to a maximum height of 22'. A kitchenette and private office space may be allowed but no overnight use is allowed.
4. The property would need to be subdivided to allow for sale of the individual spaces and an HOA would need to maintain the common area including private driveways. See the attached PD text for the complete proposal by the applicant.
5. The main staff concern is that NO commercial activity be conducted and any activity which would normally require a City business license shall not be allowed on these premises. These units are for personal hobby use only.
6. A draft copy of the proposed CC&Rs has been submitted for City review. The 28 page document does spell out the permitted and prohibited uses and those pages are attached for your review.

Bob said the previous concerns was that no commercial activity would occur. They have a PD text which is attached to your packets.

Bob read into record part of the PD Zone Text stating the horse and equestrian uses which are existing on the site shall be allowed to remain, including the small stable building. The horses shall be provided with outdoor and indoor boarding conditions, and a exterior yard shall be maintained at all times where there are equestrian uses on the property.

Commissioner Campbell asked if there is a conflict with auto garage and restoration and prohibited uses such as any automobile, truck, trailer, motorcycle, or recreational vehicle sales, leasing, display or repair.

Greg Mathis said they dont want to have a business in these units to conduct repairs for others, it would be for their own personal use. Greg said the property is zoned A-1. Greg pointed out that the existing garage for Rod Orton has an enjoyable time at their garage.

Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said he would like to see in the PD text stating that nothing would be permitted in this zone that would require a business license. Greg said that would be great.

MOTION: Commissioner Hullinger made a motion to recommend that this item be continued to the next meeting in two weeks by the applicant. Commissioner Nobis seconded the motion. All voted aye.
