Members Present: Brenda Reynolds, Hunter Collins, Bill Yoes, Charlotte Carnes
Meeting Called to order at 6:02 PM
The agenda has been amended to meet the intent of public hearing first and then general session after all public hearing has been heard.
1. Public Hearing – Hog Valley RV Park Conditional Use Permit, NW Campbell Road:
Jake Chavis – Representative from Bates and Associates. Applicant is requesting storage facility to be located in Phase 3 (as stated at meeting, but LSD mod was Phase 4) of the development. No request for water or sewage. Detention and drainage has been accounted for. Applicant explained the storage will be contingent upon the rental of a camp spot. This would not be a publicly accessible storage facility– only to park guests. Storage will be accounted for in the cost of the renting camping spot. The people who rent spaces monthly are the ones needing this storage. Discussion occurred regarding covenants; there is one modification needed to comply with original CUP issued; covenants would also need to state storage would be for park guests only, not public. Revised covenants need to come back to PC for approval and adoption as part of the original CUP for it to be in good standing.
Pat Sublett – He does not see how this is much different than a hotel renting covered parking.
Donna Mason – Owns Lockdown Storage. Presented concerns that she presented at last month’s meeting and handout was attached to January Minutes.
After considerable conversation, Mr. Coyle advised to remove the item, he did not want to pursue the storage units. He is going to continue with the design of the RV lots. The changes to the covenant will be required. Chair gave Coyles her contact information to discuss covenant modification when Coyles are ready.
2. Public Hearing – Stewart Lot Split, Wiles Road
Nathan Crouch – Blew and Associates; There are currently two houses on one parcel. The owner wants to split the lot into three lots, one house on each, while building a new house on the third parcel. The proposed parcels meet the minimum size. This cleans up an older issue of 2 houses being on one parcel.
3. Public Hearing – Stewart Variance Request, Wiles Road
The variance request is for the length of the driveway. It will exceed the 100’ length stated in the Code. Also, the split results in two tandem residential lots, which also requires a variance. This will clean up the current parcel as the family will share the drive. Length of drive is not an issue due to the topography of that area. Tandem lots are also not an issue due to the way this particular property is laid out– the lots are tandem from the “main road”, but the private road that continues into the property provides sufficient access.
4. Hog Valley RV Park Conditional Use Permit, NW Campbell Road.
Applicant chose not to pursue; item removed without PC action/vote.
5. Stewart Lot Split, Wiles Road
Collins motion to approved. Carnes second. 4-0 approved.
6. Stewart Variance Request, Wiles Road
Carnes motioned to approve. Reynolds second. 4-0 approved.
7. Public Comment
Karen Richardson – She owns a mobile pet grooming service. Looking at potentially opening business at 34 South Main Street. Chair advised it is a permitted use, explained what needed to be done, and Ms. Richardson can be on next PC Agenda once application for business license is turned in.
Alan Deaver – Representing a client who wants to build a 1,000 SF storage building, 5+ Acre Gravel Laydown Area east of the intersection of Lillie Lane and W Napier Drive. This would be a truck driving school. This is located in a C-3 zone. Schools are permitted in C-3. It was revealed that there would not be any utilities running to this proposed building. PC explained It cannot be considered a school without utilities. This, as described, is an accessory building. The applicant was advised that it is required to have a principle structure in order to build an accessory structure. A traffic report will not be required but a letter stating hours of operation, number of students, etc. The applicant was advised on all utilities and procurement. This would have to go through the large scale development process.
Carnes motion to adjourn. Reynolds second. Meeting adjourned at 7:32.
