Applicant Bonnie Bracken explained she had a photography studio there for a long time.  She closed the studio approximately five years ago.  The upstairs living area had a hair salon, but never did very well.  They hope to rent the home, possibly a duplex.  She stated they do not plan on changing the parking are in the back.

GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT/ORDINANCE:

Consider approval of an ordinance for a General Plan Amendment from OS (Open Space) and COM (Commercial) land use designations to HDR (High Density Residential) and areas of OS (Open Space) to COM (Commercial) generally located west of Bluff Street at approximately 300 West and 900 South.

 

Planner Dan Boles presented the request to amend the General Plan from OS and COM land use designations to HDR and areas of OS to COM generally located west of Bluff Street at approximately 300 West and 900 South.  He provided a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: vicinity map; land use map; zoning map; general plan amendment exhibit; slope map; and photos of the area.  The Planning Commission recommended approval.

 

Mayor Pike asked staff their thoughts on this area having HDR.  There is already quite a bit of traffic in this area.  He and Councilmember Randall inquired about clay issues in the area.

 

Assistant Public Works Director Wes Jenkins explained there is some clay in the area; however, it is not in the high hazard landslide area.  He outlined the proposed roads and noted that staff has not seen the layout yet.


Councilmember Randall commented that she recommends they do not ask for a parking variance since there is not enough parking available on the street.

 

Mr. Boles noted the entire parcel is zoned commercial; he does not feel commercial is the right fit for this property.  Staff feels the request can work. 

 

Bob Hermandson, representative for the applicant, explained the intent of the delineation of the high density line is to follow the existing disturbance line; to leave the upper hillside alone.  Further, he explained they are not expecting to see substantial amount of clay in this area. 

 

Councilmember McArthur asked Mr. Hermandson to preserve the hillside.

 

Mr. Hermandson agreed.

ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE:

Consider approval of an ordinance for a zone change from OS (Open Space) to PD-R (Planned Development Residential) on property generally located at 3174 South Bloomington Drive.

 

Planner Ray Boles presented the request to change the zone from OS to PD-R on property generally located at 3174 South Bloomington Drive.  He provided a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: vicinity map; general plan map; zoning map; proposed site plan; landscape plan; elevations; renderings; cross section; and signage. He outlined the changes proposed since the Planning Commission meeting.  The applicant is requesting a reduction in the parking requirements.  City code requires 2 stalls per unit and 1 stall for every 3 units for guest parking; they are proposing 1.75 per unit and accommodating at the required rate of 1 stall per 3 units.  The height being requested is 51.5’.  He recommended the following conditions if approved: 1) A 100’ temporary sewer line easement that follows the property line that will be reduced to a 50’ permanent easement once it is constructed; and 2) An erosion hazard study before any permits are approved.  The reduction in units to 132 units will take the proposal down to about 17 units per acre.   The Planning Commission recommended approval; a number of residents spoke at the Planning Commission meeting.  Some of the Planning Commissioners were concerned with the height of the buildings.

 

Applicant Scott McCall remined the Council about their presentation several years ago when the Bloomington Country Club presented a comprehensive general plan amendment.  The apartments were always a part of the plan in making the country club viable; not necessarily 4-story, but the density was always High Density Residential.  The density being requested is less than the traffic study supports.  He noted this will be a high-end apartment complex.  As part of this project, there will be a trail relocation; he showed this on a map.  He stated that they have met with nearby residents; he indicated that they do not want the apartments; however, they are willing to work with the developers.  The colors and materials will be the same as the development across the street.

Councilmember Randall commented that since she has been on the Council and believes they have approved more apartments than in the past two decades.  She is concerned with the 4-story height and the proposed parking variance. 

 

Mr. McCall explained they do not want less than adequate parking; they believe two parking stalls is too much.  He believes 1.75 is a good number. 

 

Councilmember Smethurst noted he is concerned with the 4-story height as well.

 

Mr. McCall noted the 4-story area is not near the road and explained it is already 20’ below the road.  He feels it will not be imposing as some may be concerned about.  

 

Councilmember Larkin stated she likes the 2-story product, the 3-story product is okay; however, the 4-story product is not conducive to the area. She provided some suggestions such as taking the 4-sotry product to a 3-story one. 

 

Councilmember McArthur noted the residents surrounding this area are happy with what is being done.  He is concerned with the parking proposal; he is not in favor of a parking variance in this area.  Additionally, he is concerned with the 4-story buildings being proposed.

 

Mayor Pike called for a short recess.

 

Mr. McCall noted the type of the 4-story building is the same elevation as 2-story building across the street.  He requested the item be tabled.

Mayor Pike noted density and new homes were needed to make this work.  He asked if these residents would be required to be a member of the Country Club.

 

Mr. McCall replied yes and asked if the Council can hear the item again at the next meeting.

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember McArthur to table the item until March 19th.

A discussion took place regarding the stacking of the drive thru for Chick-fil-A.  Austin Atkin, representative for the applicant, noted this has been a great part in planning this center.  He explained they changed the flow of the center to help with the drive thru.  They have an 18-car stacking capability.  He commented there is bypass lane that the Red Rock Commons location does not have.  This location will flow immensely better than the other one.  Additionally, this center has more exits than Red Rock Commons.   

 

MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to approve the conditional use permit to allow development of Building 200, a single-story building on Lot 4 in the Commerce Point commercial subdivision located at approximately 1300 South Hilton Drive (a part of the overall Commerce Point subdivision located at the intersection of Bluff Street and Black Ridge Drive).

Consider approval of a preliminary plat for Sage Canyon Phases 12-16, an 87-lot residential subdivision located within the Southern Hills development, north of the Southern Parkway and east of River Road.

 

Assistant Public Works Director Wes Jenkins presented the preliminary plat for Sage Canyon Phases 12-16, an 87-lot residential subdivision located in the Southern Hills development north of Southern Parkway and east of River Road.  He showed and outlined the preliminary plat.

 

City Manager Adam Lenhard explained there is a provision in the development agreement – a land donation that allowed for the Southern Parkway to be built.  Because of the donation of the land, there is specific language that states the developer does not have an obligation to build any of the interchanges along the Southern Parkway.  The developers needed exits 6 and 7 and will most likely be the primary beneficiaries of exit 5; however, a lot of it is up to them and timing.  The City has not been collecting impact fees for exit 5 but will do so in the upcoming capital facilities plan.

 

Ryan Thomas, representative for the applicant, stated there is general planned commercial at exit 5 and at exit 6.  They will connect the frontage road between exits 5 and 6. 

 

Mayor Pike noted it is imperative to get the Commerce Drive project completed.  There is a lot of road needing to be built from Little Valley.

The Parks Division does not see any issues with maintaining it.  Typically, on a 66’ road, the City has required a landscape maintenance fee.  He showed proposed 3000 East cross section.
