4. Review sketch plan for proposed change of property lines - 1-M17-51-53 submitted by Dave Coe (Broker) for David Grow. Property is located at 20 East Center and 13 South Main Street
Mr. Coe, representing David Grow’s various properties, approached the commission. He informed them that Mr. Grow has retained Mr. Coe to sell the house located at 20 East Center Street. According to survey markers, the porch of the house is about 6" onto the Merc property. This porch was the original entryway to the home. The proposal is to take 7'x48' from the Merc property and sell parcels 50-51-52- together and combine lot 51 with a strip of Merc property.

Changing the property lines for these parcels will not create a new building lot, but will be an improvement to the existing non-conforming properties.

Survey markers are already in place from a recent survey.

Commissioner Barnson agrees that this is probably the best way to be able to sell the lot and improve the area on main street. Combining the property would make the property .52 acre.

Commissioner Lee said that lot line change should take care of future septic system issues. He feels that approval of this change would be in the best interest of the city.

Commissioner Greg Northrup moved to recommend approval of this proposal to the city council. Motion seconded by Commissioner Joyce Barnson. All were in favor. Motion passed. The next city council meeting will be held October 24th.

5. Adjournment
Commissioner Joyce Barnson moved to adjourn at 8:01 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Paula Roberts. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.

Approved this 21st day of November, 2017

3-259-A-2 and 3-259A-3 and 3-259A-4 combining three parcels into one parcel submitted by Bill & Holly Davis. Property located at 467 West 800 South
Mr. and Mrs. Davis are unable to be tonight. They currently live in Provo. Their proposal is to amend the Christianson Subdivision combining three parcels into one lot. That is how the original subdivision was recorded. The owners then amended the original plat, creating two additional building lots adjacent to 800 South.
 
Mr. And Mrs. Davis have purchased this property and do not want to pay the additional property tax for three residential building lots, rather than one lot. Their future plans are to not sell off any of the land they just purchased. 
 
The planning commission agreed to recommend that they have an amended subdivision plat prepared by a licensed surveyor, obtain the signatures of the owners of lot 1 and present the plat to the city council for approval at the council’s meeting October, 10, 2017.

A motion was made by Commissioner Paula Roberts to recommend that the city council approve the single lot split as presented on the survey plat. Motion seconded by commissioner Bill Mecham. All were in favor. Motion passed. The city council will meet October 10th for review for approval.  
 
7. Request for a conditional use business license submitted by Diedre Jenkins for Center Stage Dance Academy at a new location at 133 West 500 South 
Ms. Jenkins informed the commission that she has had a city business license for her dance studio on Main Street since 2013. Since the business license runs with the land and this new location is not located in the city’s commercial zone, she is re-applying for a business license at this new location.
 
Purchase of this new home is conditional upon the city’s approval for this business license.  
 
 Ms. Jenkins said that there is a large building in the rear of the property that currently has a conditional use business license.  She and her family would like to purchase this home and utilize the shop as her dance studio. This is a large lot and gives plenty of room for the studio. 
 
She is only open from August to May. Classes begin every hour. Most of the parents car pool so there is very little traffic. There are a maximum of ten students in each class. Also, the property is located on a dead-end street with no through traffic. She understands that she will need to submit a fire safety check list prior to the council’s approval. 
 
Commissioner Bill Mecham made a motion that the planning commission recommend city council approval for a conditional use business license for Diedre Jenkins for Center Stage Dance Academy moving the location of her dance studio from 50 North Main Street to 133 West 500 South. Motion seconded by Commissioner Paula Roberts.  All were in favor. Motion passed.
