Planner and Imaging Specialist
Mr. Andrew Aagard, City Planner, reported that Riverton City plans to expand the Riverton City Cemetery, which is located at 1520 West 13200 South.
Mr. Aagard explained that accessory structures must resemble the main structure on a property. In response to a question from Commissioner Russell, Mr. Aagard explained that the proposed concrete storage bays would hold only soil and gravel used to refill the burial plots. Mr. Aagard indicated that, originally, the proposed location of storage shed was on the east side of the property. He is unsure why the location was moved to the west side. Mr. Aagard stated that the Riverton City Water Department proposes to construct a secondary water pump station within Midas Creek Park, located at 11800 South 3300 West. The property is zoned Parks and Open Space. Mr. Aagard suggested various architectural improvements that the Commission may want to consider. Mr. Aagard displayed a photograph of an existing pump station in Riverton. He also displayed an architectural rendering of the proposed station and fencing. He noted that the City intends to install six-foot precast concrete fencing along the canal on the east side of the park. In response to a question, Mr. Aagard noted that the building will cut into the berm somewhat, but it will still sit higher than the sidewalk. Mr. Aagard explained that although the building is 16- to 18-feet tall, he does not anticipate that it will block any views because it is relatively isolated. The capacity of the storm retention pond will not change because the berm will remain intact on the side that retains the water. Mr. Aagard also noted that the pump equipment will be inside the building, so there should not be any significant noise. Mr. Aagard indicated that the storm water pond has been or will be reviewed by the City's Engineering Department to ensure there would not be a flood risk. Mr. Aagard stated that Questar Gas has proposed to construct a utility substation at 1397 West 13400 South. An aerial photograph of the property was displayed.
Mr. Andrew Aagard, City Planner, reported that the applicant has requested approval of a commercial site plan for a salon to be located at 2487 West 12600 South.
The subject property was rezoned in June of 2011 to Commercial Gateway. Mr. Aagard displayed a zoning map. Mr. Aagard displayed the architectural rendering. Mr. Aagard reported that one neighbor had contacted staff to express concern about the southern fence, but the concern was resolved when staff told him the existing fence will remain. The Unified Fire Authority and the City's engineering and water divisions have reviewed the application and recommend approval. The Planning Department recommends approval with the conditions listed in the staff report. A commissioner asked about the cross-access easement. Mr. Aagard explained that there is a two-foot cross access easement to prevent rainwater from dripping onto the neighboring property. A question was raised as to the primary access into the building. Mr. Aagard noted that there will be access through the rear of the building, but he is unsure whether the entrance is at grade or whether it will require an ADA access ramp. Mr. Aagard confirmed that the Commissioners did not intend to add a restriction regarding the stucco color.
Riverton City :: Peace, Progress and Tradition
City Planner, Andrew Aagard, presented the staff report.
He stated that the application is for rezoning of 1.2 acres located at 13344 South Redwood Road from RR-22 (Rural Residential, ½ acre) to R-4 (Residential, ¼ acre). Mr. Aagard stated that the property is a flag-shaped parcel surrounded on all sides by property zoned RR-22. Even though the property is zoned RR-22, many parcels in the vicinity of the subject property are smaller than ½ acre. Mr. Aagard then displayed a zoning map of the area as it would appear if the rezoning request were approved. Mr. Aagard explained that the medium-high density residential designation of the General Plan coincides with the RM-8 zone. Mr. Aagard confirmed that the smallest lot size allowed in the MDR zone is 10,000 square feet. Mr. Aagard was asked about the size of the narrow strip on the subject property. He was unsure of the dimensions. Mr. Aagard presented the staff report and noted that the application was for a dental/professional office building to be located at 2284 West 12600 South. The subject property was zoned Commercial-Professional Office (C-PO). The Country View Condominium Development, zoned RM-8, was located just north of the subject property. A canal and funeral home were located to the east. Property south of the subject property is zoned R-4. Mr. Aagard pointed out that the site plan specifies a 10-foot side yard setback. He explained that the ordinance allows waiver of side yard setback requirements when adjacent to a residential zone if the residential zone is a holding zone for commercial. In this case, the residential property to the west of the subject property is master planned for Business Park zoning. Mr. Aagard also stated that, although the ordinance requires an eight-foot solid masonry fence between residential and commercial properties, that fencing requirement may be waived if a residential property is a holding zone for commercial, as in this case. Mr. Aagard was asked whether the cross-access easement had been recorded. He stated that it had been recorded. Mr. Aagard presented the staff report and indicated that the application is for a site plan for a bike shop/retail center to be located at 2600 West 12600 South. Mr. Aagard indicated that he had not seen anything in writing. Mr. Aagard was asked about fencing on the subject property. He explained that, ordinarily, an eight-foot masonry fence would be required where the subject property abuts a residential zone. In this case, however, because the residential property is master planned for commercial, the ordinance allows a waiver of the masonry fence requirement. He was asked about the property line between the subject property and the RM-8 zone. Mr. Aagard stated that a new six-foot solid vinyl fence was installed when the Country View Condominiums were constructed. Commissioner Lloyd asked about the building architecture, noting that past requirements called for a specific combination of brick and stucco. Mr. Aagard indicated that the proposed architecture would comply with the ordinances governing Gateway Commercial zones. Mr. Aagard pointed out that the applicant does not control the existing fence on the north side of the property. Mr. Aagard reminded the Commission that both the Planning Commission and the City Council addressed a similar fencing issue with respect to the Hosac Retail Center.
Mr. Andrew Aagard, City Planner, stated that the applicant would like to rezone 4.04 acres located on two separate lots at 13249 South Redwood Road and 13269 South Redwood Road.
Mr. Aagard reminded the Commissioners and the public that the hearing is to consider only the zoning, not subdivision or site plan issues. Mr. Aagard added that the applicant was notified that the General Plan is under review. Mr. Aagard indicated that many of Riverton's subdivisions are ten to fifteen years old, and the street trees are beginning to mature. In response to a question, Mr. Aagard clarified that if the City has to prune or remove a privately-owned tree, the property owner would be billed for the costs incurred by the City. Mr. Lethbridge noted that Mr. Aagard is the certified arborist for Riverton City. Mr. Carter agreed, noting that Riverton residents can consult with Mr. Aagard regarding appropriate tree care and maintenance. In response to a comment, Mr. Aagard explained that the City plans to remove all of the mature Siberian elms in the City Cemetery, but the ash trees will remain.
