Mr. Willis noted boat sales is not being contemplated under this draft because they are limited to specific streets in the Commercial zones.

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request to change the zone from General Commercial (C-3) to Planned Development Student Housing (PD-SH) on approximately 4.4 acres generally located northeast of the intersection at 600 East and Tabernacle Street.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: aerial map of the area; zoning map; general plan map; student pedestrian emphasis area; site plan; landscape plan; elevations; perspective drawings; materials board; sign plans; and photos of the area.  The Planning Commission spent quite a bit of time reviewing the project and recommended approval with the condition that the project meet the parking requirement of .75 on site.  If the .75 is on site, then the guest parking requirement to zero is allowable.

Pierce Industrial Park on the north to the Utah-Arizona State line on the south and from the I-15 freeway on the west to the Ft. Pierce Wash on the east.  Desert Color St. George, LLC, applicant.

 

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request to amend the General Plan Land Use Map and associated text for the South Block Sub-Area Plan and the Atkinville Interchange Plan on approximately 3,350 acres generally located from the Ft. Pierce Industrial Park on the north to the Utah-Arizona State line on the south and from the I-15 freeway on the west to the Ft. Pierce Wash on the east.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics:  aerial map; zoning map; 2007 approved South Block Master Plan; Color Country master plan area; proposed master plan; propose/current plan; changes between existing and proposed plan; walkable community diagram; current higher density focus areas; proposed higher density focus area; current trails, parks, and open space plan; and proposed trails, parks, and open space plan. The Planning Commission recommended approval with that section 6.5 pertaining to temporary extraction sites be removed.  He addressed Councilmember Baca’s concerns with water issues; the developer is working with staff.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin noted that SITLA has already installed a major line tying this area and SunRiver into the airport area and the Water Conservancy District is going to extend a new supply line from Sand Hollow to this area.  As this is a general plan amendment, there is no obligation for the City to provide water at this time; rather that will take place when the plats are approved.  This project would have less demand on the City than the previous proposal.

 

Brook Cole, applicant, thanked Mr. Willis and staff for their efforts on this project and the Council for their time.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.  There being no comment, he closed the public hearing.
