II. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - SWIMMING POOL
- FRANK COMPAGNI, JR.
- 1324 EAST SAGEWOOD ROAD
Mr. Compagni appeared before the Commission to explain his request. He explained there is presently an existing six (6) foot chain link fence around the area to the west. He will be changing it to a solid fence up to the front corner of the house. Larry Bruno indicated the old chain link fence was not sight-obscuring, but the new solid fence will be a traffic hazard. There should be a forty (40) foot triangular area on the corner of the street that must be considered. Francis Duzenack explained that Cedar Hills Drive was basically improved as rear yards for all of that property in Sagewood. The entire development rears along Cedar Hills Drive and, in Mr. Compagni's case, that would be considered a side yard and he would be allowed a six (6) foot fence. The only exception would be the forty (40) foot diagonal on the corner, which he will take into consideration when doing the fence. One other item of concern is security requirements for the fence. The fence must be gated and locked, with no holes large enough for children to crawl through. The Building Code does not deal specifically with swimming pools, but with the security fencing around pools.. There was no further discussion and Larry Bruno moved to forward a favorable recommendation to Price City Council for the Conditional Use Permit Swimming Pool - Frank Compagni, Jr. at 1324 East Sagewood Road. Laurel Marinos seconded and the motion carried.
III. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT - SIGNS
- ALBERTSONS STORE - CHANGING CITY MARKET SIGNS TO ALBERTSONS FOOD & DRUG
- 760 PRICE RIVER DRIVE
A representative for Albertsons Store was unable to attend and Francis Duzenack made the presentation. They will be replacing the signs on the City Market Store with Albertsons signs on May 15, 1999. There will be new signs on the building. Although the signs are just slightly larger, they are allowed two hundred (200) square feet and meet all requirements. The only sign not shown on the plan was the sign on the west side of the building and facing the highway. This sign will be the same as the front sign on the plan. They have come before Planning and Zoning because of the increased dimensions in the signs as compared to what was used by City Market. There were no concerns and Alfred Richens moved to forward a favorable recommendation to Price City Council for the Conditional Use Permit - Signs for Albertsons Store at 760 Price River Drive. Gary Lyon seconded and the motion carried.

Mr. Anast asked to be removed from the agenda.
V. INFORMATION ONLY
KATHY HANNA - PARKING CEU PREHISTORIC MUSEUM
Kathy Hanna, representing the Castle Country Travel Region, appeared before the Commission to discuss the parking problem at the CEU Prehistoric Museum. The parking lot is becoming more heavily used. It is used for commuter parking, adding to the problem. There are nine (9) directional signs directing tourists into the area, but no parking is available. This situation will only worsen with tourist season. She would like to have spaces for buses and museum patrons. Tenants in the Price Community Center park on the south side of the building to help alleviate the problem. Ms. Hanna asked if anything could be done to improve the situation. Joe Piccolo suggested the use of designated parking for the museum. There has never been parking designation for the museum and he feels this is something Price City Council needs to consider. There is an existing committee within Price City, comprised of Richard Tatton and Betty Wheeler, that oversees the Price Community Center. Francis Duzenack indicated that the parking requirement in the Price City Land Use Management and Development Code for professional office buildings allows one (1) space for each 300 square feet and this is for net usable or leasable floor space, The square footage of the museum building would have to be determined in order to find the number of available parking spaces.
Joe Piccolo said there are plans to improve the parking lot over several years time. He recommended Ms. Hanna determine her needs and contact those council persons serving as overseers for the Price Community Center, along with Police Chief Shilaos and Fire Chief Boyack, and present this information to them so this problem can be resolved. Mr. Piccolo will take this message to Price City Council Meeting and Ms. Hanna will contact him in the near future to see what can be done.
Nothing to report at this time.
There was no further business at this time and the meeting adjourned at 6:30 P.M.
