VI. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - FENCING
- STEVE'S WESTERN TRANSMISSION
- STEVE BALLARD - 150 NORTH CARBONVILLE ROAD
Mr. Ballard appeared before the Commission and gave details concerning the fencing of his property. He indicated the impound yard would have an 8' chain link security fence with slats. Joe Piccolo asked if there were other impound yards within Price City. Francis Duzenack indicated there were several within the City Limits, but in most areas of town, a six foot fence is the maximum, but in the CD Zone, it is an adjustable item by conditional use. Mr. Ballard has had some vandalism to his vehicles recently as well as to the vehicles being stored. A fence will improve the looks to the entry of the City and will keep intruders out.
Joe Piccolo asked if all property being fenced belonged to Mr. Ballard. Mr. Ballard indicated that the property to be fenced was his and that he was complying with a request from the Price City Police Department to install a fence. The Police Department is concerned not only with the vandalism problem, but the impound yard is an eyesore when entering the City from that direction and they have recommended that fencing take place. Francis Duzenack indicated the fence up behind the signs for the storage area is not a visibility problem and the proposed fence in front of the transmission shop will be a pipe and chain decorative fence. He recommended using a surveyor to establish the right-of-way line and all the property corners in order to come up with a feasible plan. Mr. Piccolo asked that since the property behind the transmission shop belongs to the railroad, would Mr. Ballard remove all vehicles and clean up that area? Mr. Ballard indicated that he would do so. Mr. Piccolo indicated he could not support an impound yard within the Price City Limits because to do so would allow others to follow. Therefore, he suggested Mr. Ballard use this impound area as a storage yard and install a six foot chain link security fence.
Alfred Richens suggested Mr. Ballard check with UDOT concerning rules and regulations of fencing as his property fronts a State Highway.
Discussion was held on the matter and in light of the present situation, the Commission decided to grant a Conditional Use Permit for Concept in order to give Mr. Ballard the necessary time needed to meet with Francis Duzenack concerning this problem and formulate plans for the fencing.
Mr. Piccolo asked that the following problems be addressed before returning for Preliminary and Final Approval:
There were no further questions or concerns and Gary Lyon made a motion to grant a Conditional Use Permit for Concept for Steve's Western Transmission - Fenced Yard, with amendments and concerns as stated above. Joe Piccolo seconded and the motion carried.
Nothing to report at this time.
There was no further business and the meeting was adjourned at 6:35 P.M.
