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.

Dana explained that this property has been surveyed and presented a survey plat, prepared by an engineer) for commission review. Everything appeared to meet city requirements for dividing this property into two parcels. The property owners will need to make arrangements for the installation of a second irrigation riser.
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. The planning commission will recommend that the city council give approval for this change of location at their October 10, 2017 city council meeting.
Commissioner Paula Roberts moved to adjourn at 8:00 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bill Mecham. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.
Approved this 17th day of October, 2017
