AGENDA ITEM NO. 7: Public hearing and consider an ordinance rezoning property from A-1; Agricultural to R-1; Residential for property located West of Northridge Road and North of Castle Creek. Case #P02-09 (Applicant: Rick Austin)

Mayor Peterson declared a public hearing in session to consider an ordinance to rezone property located West of Northridge Road and North of Castle Creek (3300 Northridge).
Mayor Peterson asked if any person wished to appear in favor of or in protest of the rezone.
The staff report was given by Justin Erickson, Planning Director, and it was noted that the subject site is approximately 4.0 acres and is currently zoned A-1 Agricultural. Adjacent properties are primarily zoned R-1 and are developed mostly with low-density residential uses. The City’s agricultural zoning is primarily designed to serve as a holding zone until properties can develop/redevelop at urban level densities and intensities. There are several residential neighborhoods in the vicinity of the subject property and the site is poised for redevelopment because of its size, location and proximity to City services, including sewer and water. The Shawnee Comprehensive Plan designates this area as “residential” and approval of the rezone will ensure consistency with the Plan and will provide an appropriate zoning classification for the property.
No others appeared and the public hearing was closed.

Ordinance No.2392NS was introduced and read aloud.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 8: Public hearing and consider an ordinance for Conditional Use Permit to allow for dry cleaning, laundry and dyeing plant for property located at 704 E. Independence. Case #P03-09 (Applicant: Dwight Yancey)

Mayor Peterson declared a public hearing in session to consider an ordinance for Conditional Use Permit for property located at 704 E. Independence.
Mayor Peterson asked if any person wished to appear in favor of or in protest of the permit.
Staff report was given and it was noted that the applicant operates an existing dry cleaning enterprise called “Shawnee Cleaners and Laundry” directly across Independence Street from the subject property at 707 E. Independence. The applicant is requesting approval of a Conditional Use Permit to utilize an existing commercial building as a “cleaning, dry, laundry and dyeing plant” in an area zoned C-3. The site is the former location of “Gerdes Garden Center” and is presently unoccupied. Utilities exist at the site and are adequate to serve the use, therefore staff is recommending approval of the requested conditional use permit to operate a cleaning, dry, laundry and dyeing plant at 704 E. Independence Street. The permitted use for this classification identifies “dyeing” as a permitted use. However, staff reported that no dyeing will be done at the subject property.
No others appeared and the public hearing was closed.

Ordinance No.2393NS was introduced and read aloud.

The applicant request final plat approval to allow for the creation of three commercial lots and one stormwater/drainage tract on 14.18 acres of a 20-acre tract.

The “common area and drainage easement” shall be constructed before or concurrent with development on Lot 1 and Lot 2 and those lots benefiting from its construction shall be given access via an easement notation on the face of the recorded plat or a separate recorded instrument, subject to approval by the City Engineer.
