1.    Documents acceptable to the City are presented showing proof of access within Stone Cliff private streets to the new development

Applicant Gail Maxwell explained why the item was removed from the previous agenda; no changes have been made to the application since then.  The language for the contract with the HOA is being worked on, but an agreement has been reached.

 

Mayor Pike noted there was a public hearing held at the last meeting after which he opened the public hearing. 

 

Resident Thomas Blasdell provided documents to the City Attorney – he stated they are previously recorded deeds.  The proposed hillside development permit is based upon a proposed swap of rights that would allow the applicant to not have to comply with the requirements.  He spoke about a letter he wrote to the City Council on February 6th as well as the deeds he provided; he indicated there are ownership issues with two (2) of the parcels, the applicant does not own them.  Additionally, he asked the Council to take these issues into consideration when considering the request for the Hillside Development Permit.  He does not believe the HOA has formally taken a position on this request.

 

Resident Ladel Laub stated he is a member of the HOA Board and commented that the proposed project has value to the HOA and its members – future amenities, additional HOA revenues for dues, and a second access.  He explained these are his personal comments; he did not attend the meeting to represent the board.

 

Mr. Blasdell agreed there will be additional revenue from dues; however, they are not in dire need of additional funds.  Currently, there is one access, but there is a construction access that residents utilize.

 

Resident Robert James Anderson commented he has issues with access from the proposed development through 1500 South and 1540 South.  Additionally, he is concerned with construction vehicles.     

 

Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.

 

Lowry Snow, representative for the applicant, stated this is the first he has seen the deeds Mr. Blasdell presented.  He addressed the concerns with ownership raised by Mr. Blasdell.  There is no issue with one of the parcels while one of the other parcels is owned by Kay Traveller Investments LLC; Mr. Traveller would transfer the parcel to the applicant if required.  The third parcel is owned by the HOA.  They have no issues with the six (6) conditions of the Planning Commission.  He recommended the

additional condition that staff is satisfied with ownership of the parcels after which he asked the Council to move forward.  The issues brought up regarding the HOA and amenities; the applicant has been communicating with the HOA to resolve the issue. 

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman asked if the HOA parcel was not included, would the proposal meet open space requirements.

 

Community Development Director John Willis indicated that he would have to look.  Any approval would need to be subject to looking at the numbers.  He explained the hillside ordinance requires a certain percentage and slopes.  The applicant is requesting to utilize property that is not adjacent to the property to mitigate the hillsides.  Further, just because the plat states “open space” does not mean the City required it to be open space.  Staff is okay with the property not being adjacent. 

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to approve the ordinance amending the Stone Cliff PD-R (Planned Development Residential) zone to expand the overall development to allow new single family lots in the subdivision with the recommendations of the Planning Commission, subject to staff working out the ownership concerns of the two (2) parcels.
