Z-2001-3 Returned by the City Council for clarification of the motion for approval of the Green Valley Apartments to reflect the wording of the application.

 

Les Magnus explained that there were two applications, one application said that they were requesting to change from B-4 zoning to R-4 zoning and then a few days later they amended their application to read that the R-4 multi-family uses would be inserted in the existing B-4 zoning P.U.D.

 

Joe Robertson arrived at 7:10 p.m.

 

There was general discussion regarding the basis for the vote of the October Public Hearing.

 

Quentin Coon surveyed all the members present about their understanding of the applicant’s request.  The consensus was that the request was to go from B-4 zoning to R-4 zoning. 

 

David Martine said he would abstain from voting because he was not on the Planning Commission when the case was heard. 

 

Les Mangus gave the Commission a copy of the attachment to the amended application, which explains the applicant’s agreement to use either B-4 zoning or R-4 zoning with no intermingling of business and multiple-family residential uses.

 

Discussion followed. 

 

Quentin Coon asked the Commission, if we want to set a precedence of putting R-4 zoning in the B-4 zone. 

 

Les Mangus told the committee that back in 1995 there was an amendment that changed this parcel to B-4 zoning and it added other uses that are not normally in a B-4 zone.  There are several uses from the B-5 highway business district and also multi-family dwelling units for the elderly. 

 

Motion was made by Lynn Heath that the Planning Commission concurs with the draft of ordinance 1151 for Case No. Z-2001-03 on the additional use for the B-4 Central Business District of R-4 Multiple-Family Residential District and the B-4 Central Business District with the restriction that was on the application supplied by the applicant to restrict Parcel 16 so that it will be either all R-4 zoning or all B-4 zoning and not mixed.  Ron Roberts seconded the motion.  Motion carried 5-0 with Dave Martine abstaining.

Z-2001-3 Returned by the City Council for clarification of the motion for approval of the Green Valley Apartments to reflect the wording of the application.

 

 

 

Review the revised Final Plat of Cloud City Subdivision Phase 2.    Kenny Hill of Poe and Associates presented information for the applicant.  This is a replat of the commercial part of the Cloud City PUD.   Poe and Associates had approval of the original plat of this area earlier this year and the developer has requested that we allow a replat essentially to move the east end of Cloud Avenue to a point about 150’ north of where it was located on the previous plat.  The reason for the replat is to provide additional parking and additional space to the parcel just south of the collector street.  There is very little change in the PUD other than the realignment of the collector street.  

 

Lynn Heath commented about continuing the walkway for pedestrians to go from the housing area up to the commercial development.  He stated the walkway should be on the east side of Reserve A and would not have to be installed until they continue developing the eastern part of that area. 

 

Leo Goesland, the developer, said they were a little behind schedule because he has been in contact, and working with, a large single retailer which Mr. Goesland is hoping to bring to Andover.  The retailer would like a little more parking.  

 

Lynn Heath said the Commission would like to see that some benches would be installed along the walkway in Reserve A.

 

Motion made by Sheri Geisler to recommend to the City Council the approval of the Final Replat of Cloud City Subdivision Phase 2.  Lynn Heath seconded the motion.  Motion carried 6-0.
