MINUTES REVIEW AND APPROVAL

The minutes of the Planning Commission meeting held July 8, 2015 were reviewed. Chair Hirschi made a motion to approve the minutes as amended by the City Council. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Merrill and passed by unanimous vote (7-0).

The minutes of the Planning Commission meeting held August 26, 2015 were reviewed and amended. Commissioner Hirst made a motion to approve the minutes as amended. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Kjar and passed by unanimous vote (7-0).

PUBLIC HEARING | ELYSIAN AUTO SALES LLC | 1140 WEST 725 NORTH - Consider proposed Conditional Use Permit for used car sales in the I-H Zone, for property located at 1140 West 725 North. James Romer, Applicant.

Cory Snyder, Community Development Director, said the applicant is not present and explained that staff and the applicant significantly disagree with aspects of this application and staff would not be comfortable proceeding without the applicant present to explain/defend his position. The Planning Commission decided to move onto the next agenda item in hopes that the applicant would arrive shortly. At 7:43 p.m. the Commission once again returned to this item for discussion. Due to the applicant still being absent Commissioner Hirst made a motion to table the Elysian Auto Sales application. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Hayman and passed by unanimous roll-call vote (7-0).

PUBLIC HEARING | HUFFAKER DENTAL DUPLEX | 134 SOUTH MAIN STREET - Consider the following proposed items:  1.    Zone Map Amendment for the rear portion of the Huffaker Dental property located at 134 South Main Street from C-M (Commercial-Medium/SMSC Overlay) to R-M (Residential-Medium) Zone; and  2. Small Subdivision Waiver/Lot Split for the purpose of creating a flag lot. Jeff Cook, Cook Builders, Applicant.

Cory Snyder, Community Development Director, said that prior to this meeting a Commission member questioned the ability to hear this application given the current Temporary Zoning Regulation Ordinance (TZRO) or moratorium along the Main Street corridor. Mr. Snyder explained staff viewed this as an ongoing application since the conceptual site plan acceptance took place prior to the TZRO. Mr. Snyder said this may be inaccurate and deferred the question to legal counsel. He also clarified that this application is a separate application with a separate fee from the conceptual approval.

Lisa Romney, City Attorney, agreed this may be an issue and may require review of the language of the TZRO. At 7:15 p.m. Chair Hirschi called for a recess to verify the TZRO language.

At 7:30 p.m. Chair Hirschi reconvened the meeting. He explained that he, Ms. Romney, and the applicant spoke and agree the language of the TZRO raises question as to its applicability to this application and requires additional review and research. Chair Hirschi made a motion to table this matter until further review and research by the City Attorney can take place regarding how the TZRO may or may not affect this application. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Johnson.

Lisa Romney, City Attorney, said the TZRO is set to expire on November 15, 2015. She explained the text amendments to the SMSC Overlay Zone are being prepared by staff for future review by the Planning Commission and City Council. She assured the Commission and the applicant that the City will work to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Mr. Snyder agreed stating there are options that can be explored including deferred approval and/or special consideration from the City Council.

Jeff Cook, applicant, said he understands the issue and concerns. He said he is anxious to move forward before winter comes and would appreciate any efforts on his behalf.
Chair Hirschi called for a vote on the motion. The motion passed unanimously with a roll-call vote (7-0).
