The Council discussed the Planning Commission’s recommendation of not allowing covered storage in the front.  Staff has not received any comments from the public.

 

Applicant Marv Blosch spoke about the issues he has with the Planning Commission’s recommendation and conditions.  They would like to have covered parking in the front and the height is an issue – they would be okay with limiting the height to 17’ on the units near the residential areas.  They will continue the block wall along Dixie Drive.  He spoke about the cross-access agreement – he does not have an issue with that.  He sees no reason to put a fence line between the two (2) properties; however, he is willing to put on a deed restriction if needed.

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised staff is not requiring a fence between the two (2) properties; however, cross access easements are something the City has always required when properties are owned by separate entities.   

 

A discussion took place regarding the heights of the buildings in the rear.
