OLD BUSINESS

 

NEW BUSINESS

  1. PUBLIC HEARING – RZ-16-005  Athea Cain is requesting to change the conditions only for the 2.0 Acres at 1148 Old Atlanta Highway to allow additional gravel parking.

Planner Susan Puri went over the staff recommendation for no change in the approved conditions.  The Public Hearing was opened.  Owner/Applicant Athea Cain spoke on behalf of this request.  The Public Hearing was closed.  Planning Director Kaipo Awana indicated this is an on-going case, and the applicant has changed the original request several times.  Due to the changes, the fact that the City Council was unclear on what the applicant was requesting and that the applicant submitted a plan the day of the meeting, it was tabled in January.  The City Council indicated due to the changes, this request needed to be sent back to the Planning Commission and re-advertised.  By the time the staff received the latest plan from the applicant for this Planning Commission Meeting, it was too late to get in the packets.  Commission Member Julie Adams made a motion to table this request to allow the applicant time to coordinate and present to the Planning Director exactly how they are planning to utilize the property, and submit a full plan in a timely manner so staff can review and respond with a staff recommendation at the March Planning Commission.  Commission Member Phil Olsen made the second.  Approved 3-0 (tabled).
