V HOME OCCUPIED BUSINESS-OFFICE USE ONLY-FINAL

STURDY 1 SERVICE-HARRY STURDY, OWNER-133 EAST 1ST NORTH

Harry Sturdy presented this request. Mr. Sturdy expected to offer maintenance, carpet cleaning, cleaning empty apartments and houses for Bridge Realty. He is also taking classes offered by Vocational Rehab to see where this will take him. He is trying to receive a business loan and needs to meet the requirements for the loan. There will be no chemicals stored on his property. The clients will supply the cleaning items necessary to do the job required. He is currently taking care of the Pillow Talk Motel and the Riverside Motel. The office use only permit will be used for the phone and needed address for a business. The Building Official reminded Mr. Sturdy to do only light repairs and not to include such things that would include plumbing and electrical work which would need a contractors license. There will be no sign or customers at this location.

A favorable motion for a Home Occupied Business Final was made by Penny Sampinos. Jeanne McEvoy seconded the motion.

 

VI HOME OCCUPIED BUSINESS-OFFICE USE ONLY-FINAL

M & M HANDYMAN SERVICES-MICHAEL MILLER, OWNER-380 N. 600 E.

Michael Miller presented this request. Basic general all around services such as molding, repairing a toilet, finish and trim, small projects, painting etc. Mr. Miller has 30+ years of handyman side work experience and would like to continue doing this type of work as a semi-retired occupation. No contractors licensing is necessary as Mr. Miller will not do work to that degree and will keep jobs up to value of up to $1,000 with materials and labor included as required by law. A favorable motion for a Conditional Use Permit Business Final was made by Ed Shook. Frankie Sacco seconded the motion. Motion Carried.

 

VI I CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT-BUSINESS FINAL

MEEKS FINANCIAL-GARY MEEKS, OWNER-90 W. 100 N. SUITE 5

Gary Meeks was not present for this request. Francis Duzenack presented this request for Mr. Meeks. Mr. Meeks will be leasing an office space for financial consulting from an office suite at 90 W. 100 N. The sign is a reader board type sign that identifies each tenant and Mr. Meeks will just be adding his name to the list. This is just an office space going into an office space and requires no construction or remodeling of the building. Commissioner Shook wanted to know about licensing and regulations for financial consulting. The estimated time of opening is 10/26/05. A favorable motion for a Conditional Use Permit Business and Sign Final was made by Penny Sampinos with the stipulation to abide by all state regulations regarding financial consulting. Frankie Sacco seconded the motion. Motion Carried.

VIII CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT-SIDEWALK ADDITION-FINAL

T.H. POLONI SUBDIVISION-FAIRGROUNDS ROAD

T.H. Poloni presented this request. Mr. Poloni will be adding sidewalk along the fence line on fairgrounds road for the Elkridge Subdivision. A favorable recommendation was given from Planning and Zoning on September 12, 2005 for the deletion of curb, sidewalk and gutter required from T.H. Poloni. When it went to the City Council, the information was not delivered as approved and the Council was unaware of the letter from Carbon County asking that no improvements be made. Therefore, the Mayor and Council have required T.H. to add the sidewalk improvements and will be given time after the winter season to do so. T.H. contacted Carbon County to inform them of the sidewalk addition because it is on their right of way and they have the authority over the right of way. If the planned trail is placed on that side of the road, the sidewalk will be taken out. Mr. Poloni would like a release from his obligation to the City under the original information of deleting the curb and gutter improvements. At this time, Jeanne McEvoy asked to speak to Mr. Poloni and offer her apologies for his time that he has taken in returning to the Planning and Zoning Commission on the same issue. It is her position to present the City Council with the meeting information from the Planning and Zoning Commission. The information she had written on her notes were different from those of the minutes. The minutes are not approved between the Planning Commission meeting and the City Council meeting and therefore she relies on her notes. She does understand the information presented tonight and will take copious time to forward the correct information. She will also recommend to the City Council to have the Conditional Use Permit fee refunded at this time for the confusion and time it took to come back again to the Planning Commission. Mr. Poloni just wants to have this issue over with so he can begin placing the sidewalk. He will be unable to do the improvements now as cement is very hard to purchase because of the recent weather issues from hurricanes and ordering of cement is delayed. Also, weather here in town is getting too cold to pour cement. A favorable motion for a Conditional Use Permit was made by Ed Shook for a 5 foot sidewalk addition. Penny Sampinos seconded the motion. Motion carried.

 

IX CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT-CONCEPT, PRELIMINARY AND FINAL

Questions regarding driveway access, parking stalls and highway alignment were briefly discussed with the Commission. Lighting and safety signs will also be a concern for preliminary and final plans when a representative comes to the next meeting. A favorable motion for a Conditional Use Permit Concept as written was made by Frankie Sacco. Seconded by Jeanne McEvoy. Motion Carried.
