Items affecting Ogden Valley from commission minutes:
Final approval of Sheep Creek Cluster Subdivision Phase 4 at 3800 E. 4600 N.
consisting of 25 lots including a financial guarantee in the amount of approximately $398,108.56
Kevin Hamilton, County Planning Department, showed maps of this final phase of the Sheep Creek Cluster Subdivision. Twenty four of the lots are accessed off of the road that comes off North River Drive. All but one lot sit between Sheep Creek and the North Fork of the Ogden River and will be serviced by Powder Mountain Sewer, and the one lot that sits to the west will be serviced by a septic system. While the lots do not fall within the floodplain, the County Engineer requested that the lowest habitable floor be built above the base flood elevation adjacent to the lots because of the porousness of the soils. There was concern that if the river reached flood stage the ground water would rise to a problematic level. The base flood elevations for each lot is listed on the final plat and those building on the lots will be required to construct above those levels. The Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval.
Commissioner Bischoff moved to grant final approval of Sheep Creek Cluster Subdivision Phase 4 located at 3800 E. 4600 N. consisting of 25 lots including a financial guarantee in the amount of $398,108.56; Commissioner Cain seconded, all voting aye.
Paul Southwick, representing North Eden Acres Phase 4, thanked the Commission for approving his item. Mr. Southwick commended the Ogden Valley Pathways on what they had done, stating that it was clearly noticed what these improvements did to enhance the Ogden Valley. He said that with the number of homes going up in the Ogden Valley the Commission should consider charging an impact fee during this time. Commissioner Cain noted that the State required the county to do an impact fee study prior to being able to impose it. The county conducted a study at the end of last year and had been waiting for the closing of the legislature session to find out the outcome on impact fee legislation. Commissioner Cain said that it would be helpful if Mr. Southwick attended the forthcoming public hearing on impact fees and stated his position
