Brooks Lane Subdivision (13660 S. 300 E.): APPROVED
The Development Agreement for the Brooks Lane Subdivision had a five-foot-wide pedestrian access between Lots 107 and 108 to provide access to the west side of the neighborhood. As development moved forward with initial work, utility boxes were placed within this area, which limited the designated pedestrian access. The applicant requested to move the pedestrian access easement to be between Lots 106 and 107 and also widen the easement to eight feet.
Smith Property Rezone (999 E 13200 S): APPROVED
The applicant requested for approval to change the zoning designation of 1.13 acres on the north side of 1000 E at 13200 S. He requested a change from RA1 (Single-family Residential, 40,000 sq. ft. minimum) to RA2 (Single-family Residential, 20,000 sq. ft. minimum). The reason for this change was the applicant would like to give one of the lots to one of his children.
