3. New Business:

a. Discussion and consideration of Final Approval for Holmgren Estates East Phase 5 – Lyle Holmgren

Engineer Breinholt said he needs the redline revisions.

Motion by Engineer Breinholt to approve the final based on final review. Motion seconded by Manager Warnke. The Board would like to see the final copy with boundary description and a soil report. It would be good to have them include the next phase on the soil report. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, and Manager Warnke – aye. Motion approved.

b. Discussion and consideration of Site Plan Lot 1 Holmgren Commercial Subdivision 53 North 775 East State Farm Office Building – Rigo Chaparro

Manager Warnke talked about an easement for the sidewalk. Scott Archibald said the access was increased to 30 feet. The access was offset a little to miss the utilities that are already in. The catch basin is already in and is in the driveway the same as the one across the street. There is a uniform sheet flow that ultimately ends in the catch basin.

The dumpster enclosure has been added to the plan with a 6 inch step without a gutter and with ADA accessibility on another side. It is planned to accommodate a dumpster but they will use cans if allowed. Manager Warnke noted he would like the step to taper down. The plan needs to show a handicap ramp.

The plan gives 3 feet to assist in backing up. Mr. Archibald dropped 900 square feet to get the correct number of parking stalls. The code does not call out a set distance for parking. Manager Warnke would rather have one less parking stall for functionality and allow the building to stay the same size. The Board gave the approval to have one less stall in favor of ease of parking.

Manager Warnke noted they need to have a landscape architect for the landscape plan. Brent Potter said the contract says they must have City approval by April 20, 2017 and noted they have a contract deadline. Manager Warnke asked about the building elevations. He will review the plan and contact Mr. Archibald with any other concerns.

Mr. Archibald noted they plan on paying the City for installation of a City streetlight. They are trying to do xeriscape. Brent Potter will contact the seller about an extension on the contract.

c. Walk ins*

Todd Lish came in for his son Clint Lish. Clint Lish would like to do a four home subdivision on Radio Hill on 1000 North by Bob’s Marine. There will be a private road and the homes will be on ½ acre lots. There would need to be 24 feet of asphalt if more than two homes. There was talk about putting a fire hydrant on the main road. There would need to be curb, gutter, and an 8 foot sidewalk. The City will participate with the sidewalk. There was discussion about bringing asphalt to the edge of the property.

Mr. Archibald came back and stated there is a public utility easement (PUE) on the corner. Engineer Breinholt said they should have a note specific to the sidewalk.

Rockie Kay came in to find out about property owned by Archibald development. There is a written agreement with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints regarding a parcel. Mr. Kay’s son is looking into the agreement. It was noted there must be a fence beside the canal. The property would need to be rezoned to do commercial. Mr. Kay stated he also looked at doing a retirement community. There would need to be an overlay. The Board told Mr. Kay there would need to be secondary water pipes. Mr. Kay talked about putting a walking trail around the canal. Manager Warnke noted the City would help work with the canal to get approval for a trail. A soil report is required. If a field drain is found, the function will need to be maintained.
