Mike Degneaud: local KW broker on behalf of Don and Marina Beard; seeking advice or opinion on the parcel(s) owned by his clients:
- inquiring about property south of Bailey, west of railroad tracks which are landlocked, except for a private easement going through Gillow’s property to the northern parcel.
- Southern-most property is entirely landlocked. Landlock issue renders the property useless and of no value. • Property is zoned C-1; no way to be used as ‘C’ (or even ‘R’) due to no access.
- Mayor advised City would not develop a road to give access to this property; creates slippery slope as to anyone else who wanted a road to their property; Mr. Degneaud asked that ‘landlocked’ property be differentiated from ‘any property’.
- The property on the east side of tracks (west side of N Main) is owned by Fayetteville.
- Discussion ensued about the property being landlocked; also about whose responsibility it is to provide road access to landlocked properties- City? Property owner? Combination?
- No advisement given by PC, other than for Mr. Degneaud to contact City Engineer since she would be more familiar with these types of development matters. Chair gave City Engineer’s contact info to him.
- When is the city going to fix the road curbs and the cleaning of the roads in the residential neighborhoods?
- Is metal siding permitted in residential neighborhoods? (No, but there is also an issue in the Code that has been discovered related to this as well which needs remedied).
- Did the city get a new building inspector? Why does the PC not know about this?
- Was the garage/shop/building on Wilson permitted by the building inspector? Chair advised yes, and although it has been advised that the structure is not taller than the house, Chair stated that she has received several inquiries about the height appearing taller and size appearing larger than the primary residence. Is it not taller than the house?
- Why, as a Planning Commission, are we going through the time investment to revise and write Code when it is not being enforced?
- City still needs to look at revising commercial zoning code so that existing residential structures can add on or improve the structure as if it was in a residential zone. This was presented/discussed in combination with the Code revision done earlier this year- however, this portion was not included since there was a more pressing issue regarding “rebuilding” in commercial zones and the Code was changed only to address that immediate issue, and not, as a whole, the recommendations made by the PC.
Meeting adjourned at 7:58pm.
