4. Consideration of a single lot split survey plat, submitted by Michael Murdock located at approximately 265 West 370 South. A portion of 1-M4 -8.       156'x156'
Michael Murdock presented the commission a completed survey plat reflecting a single lot split to his farm property located at approximately 265 West 370 South. The new lot will be located at  approximately 375 West 370 South and will be .559 acres. This area is located in the corner of his farm ground that cannot be watered by his pivot watering system. Commissioners reviewed the submitted survey plat. The proposed single lot split meets all of the city’s land use requirements. 
 
Commissioner Paula Roberts moved to recommend that the city council approve the proposed single lot split, as presented on the survey plat. Motion was seconded by Commissioner Greg Northrup. All were in favor. Motion carried.
 
This request for a single lot split will be submitted for city council approval at the August 22, 2017 city council meeting.
 
5. Review sketch plan for proposed Canyon Estates Subdivision Plat Amendment - submitted by Tom & Shirlee Hollingsworth 
Shirlee Hollingsworth presented to the commission a sketch plan for amending the Canyon Estates Subdivision. Mr. and Mrs. Hollingsworth currently own lot 5 and 6 in the subdivision and would like to purchase property from James Hintze, which is just to the east of lot 6 and is not included in the subdivision. They proposed that the 90’ turn around would still remain but a 30’ road would extend from the south end of turn around, for access to property to the south, which they are trying to purchase. 
 
Mrs. Hollingsworth provided signatures of all the owners in the subdivision supporting their plans. 
 
As the commission reviewed her sketch plan it was discovered that the property that they wanted to develop with the amendment is located in the well head protection zone 3 and no building is allowed on less than a two acre parcel. 
 
Mrs. Hollingsworth was unaware of the two acre requirement and stated that she will review what her options are and come back to the planning commission with a plan. 
 
6. Proposed single lot split for property owned by Heaber Christensen, Dana        Lundgreen, Trustee - located at 400 North 135 East 
Dana Lundgreen, trustee of Heaber Christensen estate, is proposing a single lot split for property located at 135 E 400 N. This is a 2.21 acre lot and currently has a single wide trailer home on it.  The split will be one lot with the home on it, which will be 14,000 sq. feet. This lot will have frontage on 400 N and the remaining property will have frontage on 100 E. 
 
At this time the family has been unable to sell the entire parcel and currently have a buyer willing to purchase a smaller lot with the trailer home. This property has rights to irrigation with only one riser. The commission explained to Mr. Lundgreen that when the property is split a new riser will need to be installed by the city on the newly formed parcel at his cost. 
 
Commissioners did not make a motion, however they told Mr. Lundgreen to proceed with acquiring a survey plat map because it appears to meet all the city requirements. Mr. Lundgreen will be placed on the agenda for the September 19, 2017 meeting for a review of the survey plat showing this division into two lots. 
 
7. Adjournment
Commissioner Greg Northrup moved to adjourn at 8:08 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Paula Roberts. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned. 
 
Approved this 19th day of September, 2017

3. Citizen comments
None.
 
4. Consideration of a single lot split sketch plan, submitted by Michael Murdock located at approximately 265 West 370 South. A portion of 1-M4 -8.  Measuring   156'x156'
Michael Murdock is proposing creating a building lot on the north/west corner of his farm ground that has frontage on 370 South. This is a part of his farm that is not being watered as the pivot doesn’t reach this area. If the sale goes through he would like to have about  ½ acre developed, rather than just bare ground. The proposed new lot will be 156'X156' which is 24, 336 square feet. This is larger than the 14,000 square foot minimum lot size and the frontage is more than the required 75'. It has frontage along a deeded-dedicated city street and has pressurized irrigation rights. Mr. Murdock has visited with the Sevier County Assessor regarding green belt roll-back taxes, once this residential building lot is taken out of the green belt.
 
Arrangements will need to be made with the city to install a new irrigation riser for this new building lot. 
 
Commissioner Bill Mecham moved to approve the concept/sketch plan as it meets all minimum requirements. Mr. Murdock may proceed with obtaining a survey plat for a single lot split. The survey plat may be reviewed at the next planning commission meeting on August 15th and referred to the city council for final approval at their August 22nd council meeting.  Motion seconded by Commissioner Joyce Barnson. All were in favor. Motion passed. 
 
5. Review sketch plan to divide property located at 380 East 300 North - 1-M2-10 
property is 3.20 acres submitted by Gail & Carol Mizner
Members of the planning commission reviewed a sketch plan showing the Mizner’s proposal to divide their property into three lots. This is a large property with 3.20 acres. The sketch plan shows a proposal to divide this acreage into three building lots. Their current plans are to build a home on one lot and possibly sell the other two lots. 
 
Commissioners commented that the sketch/concept plan looks good. There is plenty of acreage with room for a drive to access to the rear property as a flag lot. Current location of utilities was   discussed. The pressurized irrigation riser is in the north east corner. Culinary water, electric and natural gas are located on the street frontage. 
 
The developers are responsible for the cost to provide utilities to the new lots. Arrangements will need to be made with the city staff to install additional irrigation risers as well as power and culinary water. The improvements for the flag lot access are also the developer’s responsibility.  
 
Development requirements for flag lots were reviewed. The Mizner’s have copies of the city’s flag lot and subdivision rules.   
 
A motion was made by Commissioner Joyce Barnson that the Mizner’s may proceed with preparing  a survey plat for a lot split containing 3 building lots as shown on their sketch plan. The lot at the back of the property to have access from a flag stem. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bill  Mecham. All were in favor. Motion passed. 
 
The planning commission will review the survey plat when it is prepared, then make recommendations to the city council for final approval.   
 
Commissioner Bart Lee commented with a word of caution. He informed Mr. And Mrs. Mizner that when the property is divided, their property taxes will at least double, as the taxes will then be for three residential building lots, rather than one. 
 
6. Adjournment
Commissioner Joyce Barnson moved to adjourn at 8:55 p.m.  Motion seconded by Commissioner Bill Mecham. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.

  1. Approval of minutes of previous meeting

Commissioner Paula Roberts moved to approve the minutes of the May 16, 2017 planning commission meeting with corrections.  Motion seconded by Commissioner Joyce Barnson All were in favor. Motion carried.

Corrections- Page 1 complete name for prayer -Page 3 change discussion to discussed.

  1. Citizen comments.

Commissioner Chairman Lee asked if there were any comments before going to agenda business. Ron Parsons stated that he feels he has paid a lot of taxes on the property up for discussion tonight, and that because of the restrictions of the Source Protection Zone he has not been able to develop it. He stated that he feels that the Demaris’s are good people who would be good care takers of the land, which would benefit him along with the city.

  1. Request for recommendation regarding development in Source Protection Zone Three - property is less than two acres - septic systems would be constructed outside    of the source protection area. Located at 583 South 200 East ---  1- M10.1- submitted by Joseph & Melody Demarius and Ron Parsons

Commissioner Chairman Lee told the commission that he and Commissioner Barnson met earlier with Melody and Ron on an unofficial basis to review her plans and discuss her preliminary concept plan.

The problem being faced is that the property is partially in the Source Protection Zone Three and partially in a non-restricted zone. Our ordinance right now states that you must have at least two acres for any new development.

The Demaris’s are purposing to divide the property, building a duplex on one parcel and a house with outbuildings on the other. They plan to have all septic systems outside of zone three and in the unrestricted land. They are requesting a conditional use permit recommendation to build on less than two acres if the septic systems are not located in zone three.

Commissioner Chairman Lee expressed concern because he was with the understanding that two houses would be built not a duplex and house and felt like three septic systems would be too much. However, Ms. Demarius stated that she does have enough property outside of zone three to build a triplex, and felt like this should not be an issue.

After discussion the commission felt like they could recommend a conditional use permit if the Demaris’s have a survey performed of the property and there would be at least 35,780 square feet out of zone three. In their opinion the area requirements for a duplex which is ½ acre, or 21780 square feet and 14,000 square feet for a family dwelling need to be met.

 

Commissioner Barnson moved to recommend that the city council approve conditional use permit submitted for property located at 583 S 200 E, by Ron Parsons and Joseph and Melody Demarius. Conditional use is to build a structure in the Source Protection Zone Three on less than two acres if the septic system is located in a non-restricted zone. Motion seconded by Commissioner Roberts. All were in favor. Motion passed.

  1. Adjournment

Commissioner Northrup moved to adjourn at 8:48 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Roberts. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.

She is the owner of the property and the only one who will be working in the salon. There will be minimal traffic, she will have only one or two patrons at a time. She will be doing hair, nails, pedicures and waxing.
 
Commissioner Barnson moved to recommend that the city council approve the conditional use business license submitted by Shelby Duncan for a beauty salon in her home located at 170 East 400 North. Motion seconded by Commissioner Roberts. All were in favor. Motion passed. 
 
This subject will be included on the May 23rd city council meeting agenda. The city council will meet at 7:30 p.m. 
 
6. Discussion-Request for opinion regarding construction in Source Protection Zone Three - property is less than two acres - septic systems would be constructed outside of the source protection area. Located at 583 South 200 East ---  1- M10.1-submitted by Joseph & Melody Demarius and Ron Parsons
Commissioner Bart Lee informed the commission members that he and Commissioner Barnson met with Ms. Demarius last week to answer some of her questions and get an idea of what she is proposing if she purchases the property from Ron Parsons.
 
The property in question, 1-M10-1, contains 1.61 acres. A portion of the land is within the city’s source protection zone 3, which has major development restrictions.
 
Ms. Demarius would like to build both a home and a duplex on the property. She is proposing that any septic would be installed outside the source protection zone. She is aware that she would be required to have the property surveyed, and present a single lot split survey plat to the city for approval, as zoning rules require only one residence per lot. Ms. Demarius is out of town tonight. 
 
All uses in this source protection zone are conditional.
 
Concern was expressed regarding having more than one septic system on the property that is outside of the protection zone. She was advised that it would be a good idea for her to get perc tests from the health department prior to submitting a formal request for review of this development by the commission and city council.
 
State source protection rules were reviewed. A history of the city’s source protection plan shows that the plan was updated in 1998. The report states that the report is based on more recent data and ground-water studies that were not available at the time of the preliminary delineation report. It also states that zone 2 now extends a shorter distance from the well, but is wider; and zone 4 (replaces zone 3) is wider and includes more area because of faults and fractures in the bedrock aquifer. Zone 3 is the critical area for monitoring. 
 
There was further discussion by the commission regarding uses in different zones, as outlined in the city’s land use code.
 
The commission determined that no decision about a recommendation will be taken until a written plan is presented to them, showing exactly what the plans are for development on the property. 
 
7. Adjournment
Commissioner Barnson moved to adjourn at 8:20 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Roberts. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.
