19 FEBRUARY 2018


MEMBERS PRESENT: Corey Oelberg, Bryan Holden, Dane Wright, Howard Goodhue, Becky Peterson

MEMBERS ABSENT: Stephany Goodhue, Jon Lins, Dane Wright

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 Holden, seconded by Wright, to approve minutes from 15 January 2018. Motion carried unanimously.

Matt Thomas from Thomas Land Surveying and John Franey Reagan Barry from St. Elizabeth Church were present to discuss the preliminary and final plats for Seton Ridge which was for a plat on land owned by the church on Scotch Ridge Road and 140th Avenue outside city limits, but within the city’s 2-mile jurisdictional area. Since the parcel was being divided more than 3 times, a plat had to be developed. The City had no ordinances covering minor plats, nor had ordinances to waive the review, so the plat had to move through the regular review process.

Motion by Wright, seconded by Goodhue to recommend approval for Preliminary Plat of Seton Ridge. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote.

Motion by Wright, seconded by Peterson to recommend approval for the Final Plat of Seton Ridge. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote.

Kevin Seiberling of etc.graphics! was present to discuss an “addition” he want to place behind their building at 150 N 1s Street. The addition is actually a new building measuring 30 feet by 44 feet. He wished to have metal siding, but was aware of the City’s requirement for no metal siding in the C-3 Central Business District. There have been waivers recommended by the Commission and granted by the Council for metal siding if some brick or stone is used. He presented drawings showing metal siding with a layer of brick or EFIS at the bottom. Concern was expressed over the view of the north side of the new structure being visible from 1st Street. Seiberling will review options with building inspector on fire code requirements and re-approach the Commission after reviewing more options.

No further business was necessary and on a motion by Wright, seconded by Holden, the meeting was adjourned at 7:24 PM on a unanimous vote.

Respectfully Submitted,

Andrew J. Lent

City Administrator
