a. To receive public input on Chapter 1.26 Site Plan Permit, Building Orientation and Equipment Screening

There were no public comments. Chairman Anderson closed the Public Hearing at 5:37 p.m.

4. New Business:

a. Discussion, approval on Chapter 1.26 Site Plan Permit, Building Orientation and Equipment Screening

The Commission discussed the orientation of buildings. The buildings should face the street unless the back is aesthetically pleasing.

They discussed the need for language that would require the City Council’s approval for a building front entrance to face away from the street. This would protect the Land Use Authority Board and provide a buffer from being strong armed into accepting the orientation of a building that would not face the street.

Chapter 1.26 also provides guidance regarding mechanical equipment to ensure buildings look nice.

Motion by Commission Member Stokes to send Chapter 1.26 to the City Council with one change as noted. Motion seconded by Commission Member Forrest. Vote: Chairman Anderson – aye, Commission Member Bennett – aye, Commission Member Forrest – aye, and Commission Member Stokes – aye. Motion approved.

5. Adjournment

Motion by Commission Member Bennett to adjourn the meeting. Motion seconded by Commission Members Forrest and Stokes. Approved by consensus. The meeting adjourned at 5:49 p.m.

The undersigned duly acting and appointed Recorder for Tremonton City Corporation hereby certifies that the foregoing is a true and correct copy of the minutes of the Planning Commission held on the above referenced date. Minutes were prepared by Cynthia Nelson.

Dated this 9th day of August, 2016.
