1st Ave SE Avenue SE from I2 Industrial to C1 Commercial.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Weber inquired if there would be a negative impact if rezoned. Mulfinger responded that a residential could not be there however it is on Highway 150 and ideally we would like to eventually get this changed over to Commercial. In the land use plan it is in the best interest of the city. Sherrets inquired if there are houses there now. Mulfinger stated yes there are two houses that will be torn down.

No comments were received from the public.

A motion was made by Weber, seconded by Christensen to close the Public Hearing.

COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS, JANUARY 8, 2018, PAGE 2

1st Reading A motion was made by Christensen, seconded by Weber to approve
305, 313, 317 the first reading of an Ordinance to rezone 305, 313 and 317 1st Avenue SE
1st Ave SE Rezoning from I2 Industrial to C1 Commercial.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Public Hearing A motion was made by Weber, seconded by Milks to open the
323 7th Ave SW Public Hearing on the proposed rezoning of 323 7th Avenue SW from R-1
Rezoning Residential to R-2 Residential.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Mulfinger explained the current single dwelling would be converted into a triplex. A duplex is zoned R-1 but a triplex is R-2. The city does not spot zone and he recommends denying the request even though Planning and Zoning approved it. Sherrets stated there are four lots so by approving they could tear down the garage and build a second triplex. Mulfinger agreed.

Cantrell questioned if there was enough off-street parking space and Mulfinger said no.

Fisk inquired if the alley was serviced by the city and Mulfinger stated it has gravel.

Dillon addressed the council regarding spot zoning. Adjoining property owners purchased their properties knowing it was next to another single family dwelling. To change this to an R-2 to allow a triplex would be like an island in the center. This is spot zoning. It is easier to make this change at the edge of the district as it changes for a smoother transition or else you don’t do it. Making a spot zoning change in the middle of a purely residential district changes the population density, traffic, parking, amount of services which is inconsistent with a larger zoning picture.

Cantrell inquired if neighbors were aware of this request and Mulfinger stated there were no responses. Weber questioned if the existing owner was wanting to make these changes and Mulfinger responded yes. Fisk clarified if all four lots were rezoned to R2 than four triplexes could be built. Mulfinger stated only two since the lots are small.

Sherrets stated the house only valued at $52,000 so the cost would be significant to change to a triplex. Fisk asked if there are other R-2’s in town. Mulfinger stated there are other R-2’s but none of them are in the middle of R-1. No comments were received from the public.

A motion was made by Weber, seconded by Fisk to close the Public Hearing.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

1st Reading A motion was made by Fisk, seconded by Christensen to not approve the
323 7th Avenue SW first reading of an ordinance to rezone 323 7th Avenue SW from R-1 Residential
Rezoning to R-2 Residential.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, Weber, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Weber questioned what the plan is for the property. Mulfinger said to sell or deed over to adjoining properties, build new residential building or give back to city in one year. Fisk inquired if Greg Bryan has contacted adjacent property owners regarding this.

Milks stated the city is providing $7,500 in Economic Development funds to tear it down. Mulfinger stated the bids were around $28,000.

A motion was made by Weber, seconded by Milks to close the Public Hearing.
