Commissioners reviewed the minutes of the August 26, 2009 planning commission meeting.
A motion was made by Commissioner Leon Stewart seconded by Commissioner Troy Torgersen to approve the minutes of the August 26, 2009 planning commission meeting as submitted. All were in favor. Motion carried.
2. Business:
(A) Single lot split - Richard Adams -190 West 200 South

Commissioners reviewed a proposal for a single lot split submitted by Richard Adams. His property is located at 190 West 200 South. Parcel #1 contains .6 acres. The remainder of parcel #1 contains 1.0 acres.

The original survey plat was reviewed by Commissioner Torgersen and the revised copy was returned to this city office late this afternoon. Commissioner Torgersen has not had time to complete the second review of the survey.
Commissioner Jim Holmes reported that he just recorded his lot split. He explained that the purpose of having a survey is to correct any discrepancies in recorded county plats. If there is an issue with the county recording the survey, they may end up continually having a problem. The county decides what ends up being close enough. He ended up losing 10' of property following the county’s changes and recording the survey.
Commissioner Torgersen said that possibly a surveyor could visit with the county recorder’s office prior to submitting his survey to the planning commission for review and ultimate approval. He said that boundary descriptions should match the plat.
Chairman Gleave told Mr. Adams that corrections to the survey plat should not have to be made at the property owner’s expense. The survey should have been done right in the first place.
Commissioners agree that the concept shown on the survey plat is ok and meets the city’s land use requirements.
Mr. Adams is not in a hurry to record this single lot split. The planning commission will have this business at their October meeting for final review and recommendation for approval to the city council.
(B) Conditional use business license -
(a) Jerry V. Julander - Jerry’s Sawmill - 390 South Main
Mr. Julander explained that he originally had the sawmill for his own use but Dallin Magleby brought him some logs to cut. Commissioner Gleave asked if he was aware that the mill and logs are located on the city right of way? He said that he was aware of this. He plans to move the logs and saws to his back yard. In the future he may only cut logs for his own use. He explained that he uses a band saw and uses a truck and trailer to move logs around. He uses a come-along and drags them off and on with a chain. No heavy equipment is used. When asked about any noise generated, he replied that he uses an 8 hp Briggs and Stratton engine and that the noise level is about the same as a lawn mower.
A motion was made by Commissioner Holmes seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee to recommend that the city council grant approval for the conditional use business license submitted by Jerry Julander for a sawmill at his home with the following conditions: equipment and logs to be stored on his private property, debris cleaned up from the city right of way, no heavy equipment operation, operation during normal business hours. If conditions or noise are an issue in the future, the license may be revisited. All were in favor. Motion carried.

The recommendation for approval will be submitted to the city council for consideration at their October 13, 2009 council meeting.

(b) James E. Payne-Home office- 426 South 575 West-Storm Ridge Guides and Outfitters

This request is similar to a home office that was approved at the last commission meeting. There were no issues.
A motion was made by Commissioner Pat Lee seconded by Commissioner Leon Stewart to recommend city council approval of a home office conditional use business license for James E. Payne located at 426 South 575 West for Storm Ridge Guides and Outfitters. All were in favor. Motion carried.
James Holmes may be interested in attending land use training in Santaquin in October. Other commissioners will check their calenders to see if they might be able to attend.
 
3. Adjournment

2. Review items:
(A) Conditional use business license applications
(a) Steven L. Manley, Manley Trucking home office at 115 East 400 North
Ms. Manley said that they recently found out she and her husband need to obtain a business license. They own their own semi truck and it is leased to DP Curtis. Their workman’s comp insurance expires Friday and the trucking company will not issue them any loads unless they have a business license by Friday. She asked if the planning commission might issue a temporary business license prior to making a recommendation for approval to the city council. Once the council gives approval, a permanent business license might be issued.
Nothing will change at their home. No additional traffic, etc.
A motion was made by Commissioner Leon Stewart seconded by Commissioner Jim Holmes to recommend city council approval of a conditional use business license for a home office for Manley Trucking located at 115 East 400 North with approval by the planning commission for issuance of a temporary license until the city council has the opportunity to grant final approval on June 9th. All were in favor. Motion carried.
(b) Marla Hall, Krimps Body Jewelry, home office at 90 North 300 West
Marla Hall met with the commission. She explained that she purchases and sells jewelry over the internet. There are no customers that come to her home. She has been doing this since 2004 and would now like to have a business license in order to purchase from wholesalers in order to make better profit. There may be an UPS truck delivery once a month which would be the only additional traffic to her home location.
A motion was made by Commissioner Jim Holmes seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee to recommend that the city council approve a conditional use business license for a home office for Krimps Body Jewelry located at 90 North 300 West. All were in favor. Motion carried.
The city council will meet on June 9th to grant final approval of this business license.
(B) Proposed single lot split - James Holmes property located at 300 West 35 North (rear)
Commissioner Jim Holmes declared a conflict of interest in this matter. He presented a plat showing the dimensions of the proposed division of property.
Mr. Holmes explained that he is proposing to divide a lot next to his primary residence. He purchased the home and property next to his so he could fix up the home and sell it. He now desires to split this large lot and keep ownership of the back half of the lot and sell the front parcel with the remodeled home. Mr. Holmes would like to keep this back acreage for his own use and not sell it when he sells the home. This parcel will be landlocked, and will not qualify as a building lot.
This is a deep lot and contains enough acreage for the front part of the property with the house to retain at least the minimum 14,000 square foot lot size.
There was a discussion on recording access to this lot across 20' of Mr. Holmes property. He said that it will not be recorded as shown on the drawing. It will be taken off the plat.
There was further discussion on the proposal. An additional irrigation riser will need to be installed.
A motion was made by Commissioner Leon Stewart seconded by Commissioner Troy Torgersen to recommend to the city council that the single lot split be approved once a survey plat is reviewed. All were in favor. Motion carried.
(C) Proposed minor subdivision - Jacob Freeborn at 195 North 200 West
Jacob explained that he also doesn’t want to loose a lot of money in selling the house since he can’t get the value of the property back when selling such an old home. He remodeled the existing home as an investment property. He would like to build on or sell the other two lots. The sketch plan was reviewed.
Additional irrigation risers will need to be installed on each lot. There was a discussed on possible location of septic and leach lines of future buildings. It was suggested that he look at drawing in a better angle on new property lines.
Commissioners agree that the proposed concept plan works. Final review and approval would be based on review of a survey plat at the next planning commission meeting.
(D) Review draft sign ordinance
Depending on future agenda items, this draft document may be reviewed at the next meeting.
3. Adjournment
A motion was made by Commissioner Leon Stewart seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee to adjourn at 8:20 p.m. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.

MONROE CITY PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING

MARCH 25, 2009

1. The regular meeting of the Monroe City Planning Commission was called to order by Chairman Kamelle Gleave at 7:00 p.m. Prayer was offered by Chairman Gleave

Present:

Commission Chairman Kamelle Gleave

Commissioners: Pat Lee, Jim Holmes, Bart Lee, Leon Stewart

City Recorder Emalee Curtis

Citizens:

Elle and Devin Woolsey

Commissioner Troy Torgersen is excused from tonight’s meeting. He is attending CERT training tonight.

The minutes of the February 25, 2009 planning commission meeting were reviewed.

A motion was made by Commissioner Jim Holmes, seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee to approve the minutes of the February 25, 2009 Monroe City Planning Commission meeting as submitted. All were in favor. Motion carried.

2. Action items:

(A) Conditional use business license:

(1) Elle Woolsey, Ellemay’s Salon, (hair, nails) located at 467 N 200 W

Elle explained that they would like to remodel their garage on the west side of their home. They will be making a salon and extra rooms in the garage. There will be an outside door entrance for th salon and there will be access to the restroom and plenty of room for parking for patrons. She does also plan to sell craft items. She plans to have two stations in the salon and rent the other station to another beautician.

Elle said that she has visited with her neighbors about their plans and they didn’t express any concerns.

They will obtain a building permit from the city for the garage remodel job.

A motion was made by Commissioner Pat Lee seconded by Commissioner Jim Holmes to recommend that the city council approve the conditional use business license for Ellemay’s Salon located at 467 N 200 W. All were in favor. Motion carried.

The city council meeting will be on the council’s April 14th agenda for their consideration of final approval.

(2) Rene’ Lindgren Studios, (artist) located at 290 E 100 N

Rene’ is not able to attend tonight’s meeting. Chairman Gleave asked Elle if she could represent her mother in explaining the business. She is applying for a conditional use business license for a studio in her home to do her drawing. There generally are no customers that come to the home.

Commissioners couldn’t see any problem with this type of business in a residential neighborhood.

A motion was made by Commissioner Bart Lee seconded by Commissioner Jim Holmes to recommend that the city council approve the conditional use permit business license for Rene’ Lindgren Studios located at 290 E 100 N. All were in favor. Motion carried.

3. Review items:

(A) Proposed sign ordinance

Commissioners reviewed copies of sign ordinances from various communities to determine if they would like to recommend a similar ordinance regulating signs in Monroe City.

Some of the ideas that were discussed were:

On-premise sign for home based businesses

Set backs from property lines.

Maximum size of signs in residential zones

Basic height 4', 6', 8', depending on lot size

"Neon" lit sign rules

Temporary signs

Permanent signs

Permit required or not?

Should the ordinance restrict contents (wording) and graphics of signs?

Directional signs for businesses should be allowed

Prohibited signs should be identified

There may need to be different rules for the city’s different zones. The city has different zones in our land use ordinance and we may need to address multiple types of signs for each zone.

Commissioners agreed that they would like to begin with home occupations and the residential zone first. We should include home based businesses and businesses with conditional uses.

Some types of signs may be: for sale signs, real estate signs, subdivision identification signs, monuments, etc.

If they are to be permanent signs the commission would like to require that an application and review are required. Possibly if the sign doesn’t exceed 2 square ft and 4' high the ordinance may not require a permit.

The question was asked if there are any signs currently in place that are a problem?

Homework for the next planning commission meeting: write a list of things commissioners want to have in residential signage regulations.

Commissioner Holmes has had several conversations recently regarding the current economy hardships. More and more families moving in and are living with extended family members. He has had these conversations as he is selling a home he owns. There are multi- families looking for housing. He expressed concerns about Monroe City’s rules that do not allow occupied outbuildings or travel trailers.

Commissioners agreed that if this becomes a huge problem, they will address it at that time. We need to look at septic rules for second residences on a single property.

 

4. Adjournment

A motion was made by Commissioner Leon Stewart seconded by Commissioner Bart Lee to adjourn at 8:15 p.m. All were in favor. Meeting adjourned.

 

 

Approved this 22nd day of April, 2009
