City Initiated Windsor Mill Zoning Map and Land Use Map Amendment
On the request of Draper City, for approval of a Zoning Map and Land Use Map Amendment for approximately 0.29 acres located at approximately 11450 S 820 W. The property is currently zoned RA2. The applicant is requesting that the property be rezoned from the RA2 zone to the RM1 zone and the land use map be amended from Residential Low/Medium Density to Residential Medium/High Density. This will correct an error that has been found in the legal description used during the 2009 rezone of the property from RA2 to RM1, which inadvertently left 0.29 acres of out of the rezone. The Planning Commission forwarded a positive recommendation on both applications with a 5-0 vote.
City Initiated Chickens for Familial Gain Text Amendment
Item Continued to Next Meeting
On the request of Draper City for approval of a Text Amendment to Draper City Municipal Code Sections 9-3-040, 9-9-080, 9-10-090, and 9-27-055. The applicant is requesting that a Text Amendment be approved to adjust, or eliminate the number of chickens allowed in certain zones, and for additional clarifying updates to the text. The proposal seeks to remove the current allowance of chickens in the RM1 and RM2 zones, and in other residential and agricultural zones to tie the number of chickens allowed for familial gain to the size of the property. The Planning Commission forwarded a positive recommendation with a 5-0 vote. The item was continued because the Council would like to see more of an increase in the number of chickens allowed than was presented in this text amendment version.
City Initiated Land Use Buffer Text Amendment
On the request of Draper City for approval of a Text Amendment to Draper City Municipal Code Sections 9-23-110 and 9-3-040. The applicant is requesting that a Text Amendment be approved to amend fencing requirements and other aspects of land use buffers for commercial, multifamily and industrial properties. The Planning Commission forwarded a positive recommendation with a 5-0 vote.
Temporary Land Use Regulation Permitting Temporary Mobile COVID-19 Medical Service Clinics
On the request of Draper City for a temporary land use regulation which will support efforts related to increasing the availability of medical testing and analysis services and/or vaccinations related to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Utah Code Ann. §10-9a-504 allows the City Council, without prior consideration of or recommendation from the Planning Commission, to enact an ordinance establishing a temporary land use regulation for any part or all of the area within the municipality if the City Council makes a finding of compelling, countervailing public interest or the area is unregulated. Such a temporary land use regulation may prohibit or regulate the erection, construction, reconstruction, or alteration of any building or structure or any subdivision approval. Enacting the proposed temporary land use ordinance would allow Mobile COVID-19 Medical Service Clinics to set up drive-through services as a temporary use on existing commercial sites for the convenience of the citizens of Draper City. The Council denied because there are already public health organizations providing mobile medical service clinics, and this proposed regulation would be for private/commercial companies to provide mobile clinics.
