Short Subdivision Zoning Map Amendment: ITEM DENIED
On the request of Alex Short, for approval of a Zoning Map Amendment for approximately 1.5 acres located on the north side of 13200 South, at approximately 1017 East. The property is currently zoned RA1 (Residential Agricultural, 40,000 ft² lot minimum). The applicant is requesting approval of a Zoning Map Amendment to the RA2 (Residential Agricultural, 20,000 ft² lot minimum) to allow for potential future subdivision of the property. The Planning Commission heard this item at their September 3, 2020 meeting and forwarded a positive recommendation on the application with a 5-0 vote. The item was denied by the City Council due to concerns on the adverse impacts on adjacent property.
123XD Land Use Map Amendment and Zoning Map Amendment: ITEM WITHDRAWN BY APPLICANT
Request for approval of a land use map amendment and zoning map amendment for approximately 2.62 acres located at approximately 736 East 12300 South and 749-763 East Pioneer Road. The site has a land use designation of Neighborhood Commercial and Town Center and is currently zoned RA2. The applicant is requesting to change the land use designation for the southern portion (approximately .99 acres) of the property from Town Center to Neighborhood Commercial and to rezone the entire property from RA2 to CC, which would allow for a 45 foot tall building. A recommendation will be made to the City Council. The Planning Commission forwarded a negative recommendation on June 11, 2020 with a vote of 4-1.
City Initiated Flag Lot Text Amendment: ITEM APPROVED
On the request of Draper City for approval of a Text Amendment to Draper City Municipal Code (DCMC) 9-27-090, Flag Lots. On April 7, 2020 the City Council passed Ordinance No. 14-27, a temporary land use regulation, which prohibits new development applications proposing to erect, construct, reconstruct or alter any structure on a flag lot or proposing to subdivide land to create a flag lot. The temporary land use regulation was enacted after members of the City Council expressed sentiment that the current development standards regarding flag lots do not meet the goals and objectives of the zoning ordinance in that the current code does not adequately address the burden placed on existing residents surrounding a flag lot and approving new development on flag lots will only exacerbate the negative impacts of flag lots on existing residents. The temporary land use regulation is set to expire on October 7, 2020, or earlier, after public hearings are held and amended provisions are presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council for review and adoption. The Planning Commission heard this item at their September 3, 2020 meeting and forwarded a positive recommendation on a 5-0 vote with two minor modifications to the text. These modifications have been reflected in the ordinance submitted for Council review.
