PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE:

Public hearing to consider changing the zone from A-1 (Agricultural) and Open Space to RE-20 (Residential Estate 20,000 sq. ft.) on 20.41 acres generally located at 3800 South Bentley.  Development Solutions, applicant.

 

Planning and Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request to change the zone from Agricultural to RE-20 on 20.41 acres generally located at 3800 South Bentley.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics:  vicinity map; general plan map; current zoning map; and proposed zone change.  The Planning Commission reviewed and heard comments after which they recommended that the existing A-1 be maintained and only the Open Space be changed to A-1.  He outlined the revised proposal.

 

Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston explained City ordinance does not allow residential lots to be in open space zoning; what is in Bloomington is different. She noted, although the applicant may be committing to making the lots larger, when passing a zoning change, they are not locked into that as they can sell the property; a new owner can build on smaller lots.  

 

City Manager Gary Esplin noted in this case, they cannot build on lots smaller than 20,000 sq. ft.  The open space will be open space, they cannot build on it.  To him, this is a technicality that will have to be worked out. 

 

Mr. Willis added when the developer comes in at the time of development, staff will know more about how the area will be subdivided.  

 

A discussion took place regarding the master planned road that will be built in the future. 

 

Applicant Stacy Young mentioned the idea with these lots is to create separate open space parcels that will be sold with the parcels.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.

 

Resident Brock Riding thanked the developers for hearing them out.  He is concerned with what gets approved with the RE-20.  He stated that he is confused why it cannot all be A-1 and is concerned about the property being in the floodplain.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained the floodplain is not dictated by a zone change and that when the final plat comes in, it will show how the three lots will be developed. 

 

Resident Shannon Klomp suggested to continue with the white open fencing in the area.  Most of the neighborhood is zoned A-1, but she is sad to see the fields go away. 


Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.

APPEAL ON DENIAL OF 50’ SIGN:

Consider an appeal of a denial on a 50’ sign at 1143 South Main Street.  Terri Webster, applicant.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin presented the request to appeal the denial of a 50’ sign at 1143 South Main Street.  The property is located within the freeway area where taller signs are allowed; however, it is not on a designated major commercial street.

 

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis showed an aerial view of the property and outlined the ordinance pertaining to the request.  The property is located within the 1,500 foot bubble; but because Main Street is not designated a major commercial street, they are limited in height.  Staff reviewed and denied the proposal submitted by the applicant. He explained the sign code allows for minor variances to be approved by the Sign Review Board while major variances are approved by the City Council.

 

Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston added this request was determined to be a major variance because the code identifies the roads and it was adopted by the Council.  This road has not been designated. 

 

After being asked by Councilmember Baca, Mr. Willis explained the existing signs in the area are nonconforming and were erected prior to the ordinance changes after which he explained what a nonconforming sign is.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin stated this issue goes beyond the request for a sign.  This is a planning issue - he asked what the Council wants to see on Main Street as this is the entrance to the City and the downtown area. 

 

Mayor Pike noted that future Councilmembers may see things differently than the current Council. 

 

A discussion took place regarding a different height that may be allowed.  Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston noted the Council has the right to allow for a specific height or type of sign; however, plans for the street needs to be considered.

 

Councilmember Hughes commented that since they had to relocate because of the Bluff Street widening project, he would like to accommodate the applicant.     

 

City Manager Gary Esplin explained a number of years ago the City was chastised for looking like Las Vegas along St. George Boulevard.  Because of this, over the years as businesses changed, signs were lowered. 

 

The Council discussed other signs in the area.

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to reverse the decision to deny the 50’ sign, allowing the applicant the 50’ sign. 

 

There was no second; therefore the motion died.

 

Mike England with Rainbow Sign stated that they do not want to see 50’ signs all along Main Street; however, there are already about fifteen signs within the vicinity that are 50’ in height.  He is not sure if the applicant will want to remove the existing monument sign if this one is approved.  Because there was already a large sign on the property when they moved, the owners assumed they would be allowed a sign of the same height.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin explained the sign was not there for any other business other than Stephen Wade Auto; it was a nonconforming sign.  It was not intended to allow any

business at that location to have a 50’ sign, it was an off premise sign.  If the Council wished to decide whether or not this is a major commercial road, they can do so.   Further, he explained commercial zoning does not allow for 50’ signs as Main Street has not been designated as a major commercial road. 

 

Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston added anytime a variance is given, it will impact future requests.  Relocating is not a great distinction, however, distance is a good thing to look at.  In addition to this business, others have been denied 50’ signs in the area; however, because those applicants did not submit appeals, the Council may be aware of them.  She suggested the applicant check with Mr. Willis to determine whether or not the monument sign would have to be removed. 

 

City Manager Gary Esplin left the meeting. 

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Baca to deny the applicant's request for a 50’ sign.

SECOND:        The motion was seconded by Councilmember Arial.

Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston noted she is not sure if the agreement was reviewed by the Legal Department.
