Chair Oelberg called the meeting to order at 7:00 PM a roll call was taken and it was determined that a quorum existed.
Motion by Wright, seconded by Holden to approve minutes from 15 May 2017. Motion carried unanimously.
Brad Brockman of McClure Engineering reviewed the construction plans for Plat 6 of Danamere Farms along with Joe Pietruszynski of Hubbell Development. Construction will be done in two phases. Phase 1 (west side) is during this summer. Phase 2 (east side) will be done as market demands depending on the development speed of Phase 1. Brockman stated that the lots noted in the engineer review can be connected to the storm sewer instead of draining across the trail. The main Nature Trail will need to be reshaped around the detention basin. Joe P said the townhomes planned for this development is going to be higher price point homes similar to the Legacy development in Norwalk. Gade noted that his comments were addressed along with a more developed landscaping plan similar to the original plan except for some fescue grasses that were going to be replaced with prairie grass.
Motion by Wright seconded by Howard to recommend to City Council approval of the construction plans for Danamere Farms, Plat 6. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote.
Lent explained that the plat of survey submitted by Gerald and Karen Randleman was within the 2-mile jurisdiction area for the City of Carlisle, so it must be reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council. An aerial map was provided to show the location of the plat of survey. Motion by Wright, seconded by Holden to recommend to City Council approval of the Plat of Survey for Gerald and Karen Randleman, PT of Parcel A, E ½ Section 2, T77N, R23W, Warren County, Iowa. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote.
Lent explained that Martin Grading had applied for rezoning of their property at 335 Garfield Street to allow three 1000 gallon aboveground double-wall fuel tanks. The property needs to be M-2 instead of the current M-1 because the M-1 requires fuel tanks to be below ground.
Motion by Holden, seconded by Oelberg to recommend to City Council approval of Rezoning 335 Garfield from M-1, Light Industrial District, to M-2, General Industrial District with the condition that only M-1 uses will be allowed except for the three 1000 aboveground gallons tanks. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote.
Lent explained the proposed ordinance to amend the zoning ordinance to add the sale of fireworks as a special use in C-2 Highway Commercial Districts. This appears to be in agreement with the state law to allow for sale in retail areas, but allows the city to have a “second look” at any retailer applying for a license through the State Fire Marshall for fireworks sales.
Motion by Holden, seconded by Wright to recommend to City Council approval the Zoning Ordinance Amendment Adding Sale of Fireworks as a Special Use Permit in C-2 Highway Commercial District. Motion carried all ayes with Lins voting nay.
No further business was necessary and on a motion by Lins, seconded by Howard the meeting was adjourned at 7:43 PM on a unanimous vote.
