MINUTES

MONROE CITY PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING

JANUARY 23, 2013

7:30 p.m.

1.  Meeting called to order by Chairman Kamelle GleaveThe regular meeting of the Monroe City Planning Commission was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Kamelle Gleave. Prayer was offered by Commissioner Jim Holmes.

Commissioners reviewed the minutes of the previous planning commission meeting.

Commissioner Jim Holmes moved to approve the minutes of the September 26, 2012 planning commission meeting as submitted. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee. All were in favor. Motion carried.

The commission meetings for October, November and December, 2012 were cancelled, as there was no business to come before the commission.

Present:

Chairman Kamelle Gleave

Commissioners Bart Lee, Leon Stewart, Jim Holmes, Troy Torgersen, Pat Lee

City Recorder Emalee Curtis

Citizens:

Luther Skidmore

Patricia Bradley

Val Scott

Charlie and Linda Irons

Beth Adams

Ryan Savage 

2. Luther Skidmore proposal for a single lot split, located at approximately 300 N 200 E Commissioners reviewed the survey plat showing the proposed lot split.

One concern is that the water and power hook ups for the home are on the garage. If the property is divided and sold, new hook up fees for culinary water and power as well as irrigation will need to be paid when the property is sold.

This single lot split proposal meets all minimum lot requirements.

Commissioner Leon Stewart moved that the commission recommend that the city council approve the proposed single lot split submitted by Luther Skidmore at approximately 300 North 200 East as presented to the commission. Motion seconded by Commissioner Pat Lee. All were in favor. Motion carried.This item of business will be on the February 12, 2012 city council meeting agenda.

3.  Proposal to amend the Foot Hill Subdivision

Val Scott and Charlie Irons explained their proposal to amend the Foot Hill Subdivision. The commissioners reviewed a drawing showing how they plan to combine several of the properties.

Val and Charlie ask if the city backhoe might remove a hump at the end of the fence and clean up the 30' access to the Richard Lee property. This wouldn’t affect the catch basin. They said that if the city agreed to do this work, the proposal to combine several lots would save the city from installing a culinary water line to the old lot 3.

Commissioners like having access to the lots from an existing street rather than from the private drive. There was a discussion about the new lot "2-a" which would create an illegal lot, but it might be recorded as an unbuildable lot or have Charlie attach it to his existing lot.

Charlie said that the preliminary drawing doesn’t show the 10' utility easement. The final subdivision plat amendment would show easements and a change to the right of way easement.

It is important to get the easements correct both on the ground and on the subdivision plat.

Commissioner Leon Stewart moved to encourage the property owners to pursue amending the subdivision plat as discussed tonight and bring the revised plan back to the next commission meeting. They also recommended they meet with the city council for approval of city crews to work on the access right-of-way. Motion seconded by Commissioner Jim Holmes. All were in favor. Motion carried.

Val asked that a fire hydrant be moved, as per an earlier agreement with the city. It needs to be moved out of the entrance to the right-of-way access.

The next commission meeting will be March 27, 2013.

4. Beth Adams proposal for a single lot split at approximately 45 South 300 West

Beth Adams presented a sketch plan for a single lot split. There would be 107' frontage on the split lot. Each lot would meet the city’s minimum lot requirements. Beth was asked to hire a surveyor and bring a survey plat showing the single lot split to the next commission meeting.

5. Open and Public Meetings mandatory annual training

City Recorder Emalee Curtis reviewed Utah’s Open and Public Meetings laws with members of the planning commission. This training meets the annual training required of each public body in the State of Utah.

6. Selection of Planning Commission Board Chairman for 2013 

There was a brief discussion regarding selection of a chairman of the planning commission for 2013.

Commissioner Stewart moved to appoint Kamelle Gleave as chairman for 2013 by acclimation. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee. All were in favor. Motion carried. It was determined that Commissioner Jim Holmes will continue as chairman pro tempore for at least the next six months, or until he moves.

7. Adjournment

Commissioner Bart Lee moved to adjourn at 8:20 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Leon Stewart. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned. Approved this 27th day of March, 2013

The salon will have one chair and she will be the only employee. There is plenty of parking for one client at a time. She hasn’t decided on a business name yet.

She completed and signed the safety self inspection form, pending completion of the new addition.

Commission Chairman Gleave signed the building permit application for the addition to their home. It will be presented to the mayor for his signature.

There won’t be an entrance from the house to the salon, just front and back door entrances. The addition will be connected to the same power and water meters as the house.

The next city council meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 28.

(B) Conditional use business license for 3 Star Farms for a gravel excavating business located at approximately 1800 South Bohman Road

Mathew Mills, partner/owner of 3 Star Farms, met with the commission and explained plans to excavate gravel on his property south of town. A project contractor, Brown Brothers, contacted him about purchasing gravel material from his property for the Richfield Airport project.

The gravel material needed to be tested and Mathew used this opportunity to have it exposed and tested. A contractor may bid for the next phase of the airport runway project and use this material. Mathew wants to have the permits the city requires in place prior to allowing more materials to be removed. He checked into the city’s zoning and found this area is zoned in the flood plain and would require a conditional use business license and a flood.plain development permit. This use might be allowed with an application submitted to the planning commission for review and a recommendation for final approval by the city council.

Mathew said that this business won’t disturb the existing waste ditch channel.

Commissioners reviewed a map of the area. Mathew said that he plans to utilize only15 acres of their property at this time. The business might expand to include more acres in the future if it proves to be profitable. 3 Star Farms owns 353.28 acres in this immediate undeveloped area. The consequences of a higher property tax rate by changing the land from green belt to commercial, might make this venture too expensive.

Mathew doesn’t know if the contractor will crush the gravel on-site or haul raw materials to the job site.

The excavation contractor has specific requirements for air quality control. Brown Brothers are required to follow certain specifications for air quality. They have a water truck on site for dust suppression of the loaded materials, excavation and on the dirt road.

Commissioner Stewart asked if the excavation will be next to the road. Mathew said it is set back probably 200 feet from the road. Commissioner Stewart would like the excavation to be back at least 50 feet from the road.

Mathew plans for angled slopes, not steep drop offs, at the excavation site.

The final depth of the excavation is not known at this time. It is now about 4' deep. He would prefer to expand to the east, rather than make a deep hole.

The waste ditch crosses their property. They do not plan to breech the ditch.

Concern was expressed about possible fuel or oil spills when they bring in a crusher and heavy equipment.

Mathew explained that part of the contractor’s excavation permitting includes guidelines for spills. He again said that he may find it’s not worth it as he moves forward. Taking the property out of green belt may make the property taxes so high as to not be able to make the business profitable.

Commissioners said that they like the idea and hope he pursues it.

Mathew explained in detail why this is a primo aggregate deposit and the material is in demand for construction projects.

The Richfield airport project is federally funded and any contractor used on this project must meet strict requirements.

Commissioner Leon Stewart moved to recommend that the city council grant approval for a conditional use business license for 3 Star Farms for a gravel excavation business on land they own beginning at approximately 1800 South Bohman Road with the following conditions: (1) Provide a buffer protection zone at least 50' from the road. (2) As materials are removed, construct a berm high enough to turn any water collected in the basin back into the waste ditch channel. (3) Receive assurance from any contractor doing the excavation that there will be protection from contamination of the soils from any spills of fuel, oil, etc. (4) Provide the city with a copy of liability insurance coverage from the contractor. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee. All were in favor. Motion carried.

3. ADJOURNMENT

Commissioner Jim Holmes moved to adjourn at 8:04 p.m. Motion seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.
