Short Subdivision Zoning Map Amendment (Ord 1457): 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 that a Zoning Map Amendment to the RA2 (Residential Agricultural, 20,000 ft² lot minimum) be approved 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 City Council voted to deny the application at their October 6, 2020 meeting on a 3-2 vote. A vote to reconsider the item by the Council was approved at the October 20, 2020 meeting on a 5-0 vote. This will allow the City Council and public to consider additional information that was not provided to the City Council prior to the decision on October 6, 2020.
City Initiated 2020 Q3 Bulk Text Amendment (Ord 1454): ITEM APPROVED
On the request of Draper City for approval of a Text Amendment in order to modify the development access point requirements and reduce or eliminate the requirement for paper submissions with applications. The City has been reviewing the question about how to ensure that developments have the proper number of access points for ingress and egress and what those access points should look like. In addition, this request includes some minor code changes that eliminate, or reduce, the amount of paper submissions. With City Hall being closed to the public due to Covid-19, the City has moved to paperless submissions. The text amendment would eliminate, or reduce, the requirement for paper in the Draper City Municipal Code (DCMC) allowing the city to continue accepting paperless applications. The Planning Commission forwarded a positive recommendation for this item at their October 8, 2020 meeting.
