Ogden Valley Planning Commission Meeting Tonight @ 5

Heliport, Assisted Living Center, and Sweeping Changes to Subdivision and Administrative ordinances

The agenda is full Tonight.  Here are the details:

Weber County Commission Chambers,
Weber Center (2380 Washington Blvd).
at 5:00 p.m.

Here are some of the high points of the agenda along with our brief commentary highlighted in italics. 
2.1. CUP 2012-01 Consideration and action for approval of a Conditional Use Permit CUP2012-01 for a heliport located east of Green Hill Country Estates at 1600 North Maple Street approximately two-thirds of a mile from the Maple Street cul-de-sac within the Forest 40 Zone (F-40) (Timothy Charlwood, Applicant) 

No time was wasted following the approval of the new heliport ordinance.
2.2. CUP 2011-06 Consideration and action on a conditional use permit application for a public utility substation (cellular site at approximately 95 Ogden Canyon Road) in the Forest Residential 1 Zone (FR-1)(Doug Kofford, Agent for TAIC, and David Hardman, Owner) 
Site is at Perry Camp near the restored kiln.
2.3. ZTA 2012-2 Consideration and Action on an amendment to Chapter 18B (Commercial Valley Zones CV-1 and CV-2) of the Weber County Zoning Ordinance to allow assisted living facility as permitted use. 
Dan Phelps has purchased the Red Moose Lodge and plans on converting it to an Assisted Living Facility.  He just needs a zoning amendment.
2.4. ZO-2010-10 Consideration and action for approval of staff amendments to the Weber County Zoning Ordinance Chapter 1 (General Provisions), Chapter 9-A (Shoreline Zone (S-1), Chapter 23 (Supplementary and Qualifying Regulations), Chapter 24 (Parking and Loading Space, Vehicle Traffic and Access Regulations), Chapter 29 (Board of Adjustment), Chapter 31 (Administration), and Chapter 36-B (Hillside Development Review Procedures and Standards) regarding the Weber Board of Adjustment.
Many of these proposed changes give the planning department more administrative authority while taking away from our local resident appointed Ogden Valley Planning Commission and the Board of Adjustment.  
Think here about the Green Valley Academy being called a school because a planning department staffer decided that it met the definition.  Also, remember the in house approval of an Elk Cutting Facility, only to rescind it a few months later.

Both were done in house without the oversight of the planning commission, and now the Planning Department wants more.  We say, "More Transparency, not less."
2.5. ZTA 2010-8 Consideration and Action on an amendment to Chapter 1 of the Weber County Subdivision Ordinance (General Provision – Filing Preliminary and Final plats).

It's going to be an exciting meeting.

When the yuppies buy Powder Mountain there'll be G-5s landing on flat top.  Helicopters will be the least of our worries.
