CONDITIONAL USE PERMITS

Request by Midway Heights Baptist Church to establish a Day Care Center

on property located at 6801 W. Rollingwood Blvd., Columbia.

Chairman Kirkpatrick had a conflict of interest and turned the meeting over to Vice-Chairperson, Darin Fugit and asked staff to notify him when this request is over.

Bill Florea gave staff report stating that this property is located approximately 3 miles west of Columbia, south of Highway 40 on Rollingwood Blvd. The property is zoned R-S (Single Family Residential), as is all of the surrounding property. There is a church on this site. This site is within the Columbia Public School District. Water is provided by Consolidated Public Water District No. 1. Boone Electric provides electricity. The church owns a total of 4 acres of land. The existing church contains approximately 3000 sq. ft. of floor space. A 16,000-sq. ft. addition is being planned for the church. The primary use planned for the addition is recreational space and areas designated for educational uses. The church would also like to sponsor a day care center, which would have space contained within the addition. The original zoning for this property is R-S. There have been no previous requests submitted on behalf of this site. The master Plan designates this area as being suitable for residential land uses. The proposal is consistent with the Master Plan. Staff notified 52 property owners about this request.

Wanda Hartley, 10499 Alex Drive, Rocheport, member of the church addressed the commission. She said the church wanted to provide a mission type daycare for (preferably low income) families for pre-school and school age to the age of 12 after school. They would like to plan for a total of 50 children but they would start out gradually. It is to be a non-for profit daycare.

Acting Chairman Fugit asked what the addition to the church is used for? She said the church addition would be for educational, recreational and classroom space. There would be space provided in the lower level for the daycare.

Commissioner Smith asked if there had been a community survey to see what the need or demand would be? Ms. Hartley said that had been done. She had-had a home daycare in the area for 26 years and there was a demand for this service.

Commissioner Sloan asked what was a "mission type" daycare? Ms. Hartley said some families could not afford the fees of regular day care providers. The fee for the Midway Heights facility would just be enough to cover the operating expenses. Their "mission" is to provide affordable day care to lower income citizens.

Commissioner Sloan asked staff if 50 would be too many? Director Shawver said 50 was the number that previous requests had sought licensing for. Ms. Hartley said they would not have to follow the State requirements. This would be a religious organization and did not have to be licensed

Commissioner Fugit asked if there had been a traffic impact study performed? Commissioner Abart said he did not see there would be an impact to the area.

Open to public hearing. No one spoke in favor or opposition to the request. Closed to public hearing.

Commissioner Green made and Commissioner Smith seconded the motion to approve the request by Midway Heights Baptist Church to establish a Day Care Center on property located at 6801 W. Rollingwood Blvd., Columbia.

Jim Green yes Pat Smith yes

Darin Fugit yes Bill Grace yes

Mike Morgan yes Mary Sloan yes

Frank Abart yes Keith Kirkpatrick abstained

Motion to approve Day Care Center would go before County Commission on December 29th, 1998.

 

REZONING

1. Request by Garry L. and Brenda G. Lewis to rezone from R-S (Single Family

Residential) to C-G (General Commercial) of 13.73 acres, more or less, located

at 5700 E I-70 Dr. SE., Columbia.

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this property is located just east of Columbia near the Lake of the Woods interchange on I-70. The current zoning on this tract is R-S property to the west is zoned C-G (General Commercial); to the south and east land is zoned R-S. Land to the north on the other side of I-70 is zoned C-G and REC (Recreation). This property is currently vacant. It had been the site of Adel Mobile Home Park, which was closed by the previous owner in 1990. This site is within the Columbia Public School District. Water is provided by Public Water District No. 9. Boone Electric provides electric service. The original zoning for this tract is R-S. A mobile home park was on the property until 1990. In 1991, an application to rezone 10 acres of this site to C-G was submitted by the previous owners. That request was denied with a suggestion that they submit a request for a Planned Commercial District. In 1992, the present applicant submitted a request to rezone 13.73 acres to C-G. That request was denied also, again with a suggestion that they seek Planned Commercial zoning. The Master Plan designates this area as being suitable for residential land uses. The request zoning is not consistent with the Master Plan. Staff notified 65 property owners about this request.

Gary Lewis, owner 6008 Highland Parkway, Columbia addressed the commission. He has developed property in the county, which is now inside the Columbia City limits, Corporate Lake off of S. Providence and Green Meadows. On this location, he is not the first one in the area. From this site on the south is Little General, a service station; the drywall business and brick yard along with other businesses. North, approximately a mile there is commercial at the Lake of the Woods entrance. The proposed site was expensive and the area is in a residential area but no one would want to place or move a home on the site.

This site is a large tract. It is difficult to plan for such a large tract; he needs to have commercial zoning to develop the area. When someone comes to look at the land, they have their own needs in mind. You can not predict how to use the land on this large tract of land. If it was a one acre tract of land, then yes one building could fit and work from there. When he purchased the tract he had asked for industrial zoning. Planning and Zoning Commission said no. People (new owners) would want him to subdivide the property to smaller tracts but then each of them would have to come before the Zoning Commission for rezoning.

When he purchased the property it had mobile homes and their sewer on the site. He cleaned up the property and it looks a lot better. This tract is not as sensitive as being in the middle of residential area so this does not need to be planned in his opinion. If the property he developed on Green Meadows Road was vacant land and some one wanted to develop it, he could see where it needed to be planned because it is in a sensitive area. This tract is such a large tract but it is not a sensitive area. He asked the Commission to take a look at his difficulty with the tract in the Commissionís decision tonight. Mr. Randy Maccon, realtor was also present to answer any questions regarding the marketing problem.

Open to the public. Any one in favor of the request was asked to come forward.

Clifford Mings, 5310 St. Charles Road (since Oct. Ď74) came forward. He had known Gary Lewis since that time and thought his interests were in the best interest of the area.

Dale Perkins, 5219 St. Charles Road (since Aug. Ď66) came forward. He said what Mr. Lewis had done with the property was an improvement. Mr. Perkins did not know what Mrs. Lewis wanted to do with the property. If it was commercial, Mr. Perkins asked if it was for commercial zoning, then he thought it would be better than what it was currently.

Randy Maccon, 3704 W. Rawlins Road, Columbia came forward. He is a realtor with Plaza Real estate in Columbia. He has been marketing this property for 6- 7 months. He has received requests for commercial or industrial usage. Most has been industrial usage wanting an office warehouse. He had been associated with Mr. Lewis over 20 years. What ever Mr. Lewis has done elsewhere has enhanced the area. His moral obligation, he considers the people and goes out and talks to the properties around the area. He said this tract is natural for commercial or industrial usage.

Opposition to the request. No one came forward. Closed to public hearing.

Mr. Lewis returned to the table. Commissioner Fugit asked staff when was the last time C-G zoning had been granted. Staff noted that there had been a 3-acre tract rezoned to C-G about four years ago. The piece in question was completely surrounded by commercial zoning.

Mr. Lewis stated that he had received some C-G zoning several years ago and that had been a good development. (It was later noted that Planning and Zoning Commission had denied the request, but on appeal to the County Commission it had been rezoned as G-C)

Commissioner Fugit said he had no doubt Mr. Lewis did a good job in developing property. The problem is with Planning and Zoning issues. If the zoning were granted to him, the next C-G zoning request would quibble that it had been granted previously without a plan.

Commissioner Fugit asked if the other developments in the city had been Planned-Commercial. Mr. Lewis said he had never done a planned commercial. One tract he attempted to do, but it is still undeveloped.

Mr. Lewis said he had come before the Commission to rezone the area of Crestvale Mobile Home Park as General Commercial. Discussion followed on the last C-G (General Commercial) by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Mr. Lewis stated they why have C-G type zoning if it is not possible to obtain. Chairman Kirkpatrick said they have had that same discussion and are thinking of eliminating un-planned commercial and un-planned industrial from the Zoning Regulations. Not saying that will or will not happen but the discussion has happened.

Commissioner Sloan asked how long was "too long of time" for Mr. Lewis to go through the motions to get the surveying done, subdivision etc. Mr. Lewis said that the Performing Arts Center had been General Commercial. If 30 years ago had been planned commercial for downtown Columbia, many of the business could not have gone there. They may not have fit within the plan. The larger the tract that is true. The larger the tract is, the larger the problem. He has had people who want the property but do not want to go before the Commission to have it approved. Commissioner Sloan asked again how long was "too long of time" was it two weeks, two months or what? Mr. Lewis said it was unpredictable. If it was a plan in place but that was not what the party wanted to do in that area, he would have to go back and draw it all out. If there was a 15-acre tract but the person only wants one acre then it would have to be all drawn out again.

Chairman Kirkpatrick wanted to explain the Planned district process. It includes the opportunity to request planned commercial but does not require the submittal of a development plan. If that were approved, the property still would not be rezoned. But until such time a plan was submitted for some portion of that tract, a plan could be submitted and approved. That portion of the plan would be approved for C-GP and the plan would be in place. It was not necessary under the regulations to submit a plan for the entire tract. The Chairman asked if he was aware of that. Mr. Lewis said no. The City goes through such a long process and a lot of money for the plan. He said the county process made sense if they were going to require C-P.

Chairman Kirkpatrick said he did not quarrel with the usage that he was specifying being commercial for that tract of ground. He agreed completely but he had a problem with unplanned general commercial and could not support the request. Chairman Kirkpatrick said Mr. Lewis might want to stay around and listen to the next request being C-GP.

 

Commissioner Fugit made and Commissioner Abart second motion to DENY request by Garry L. and Brenda G. Lewis to rezone from R-S (Single Family Residential) to C-G (General Commercial) of 13.73 acres, more or less, located at 5700 E I-70 Dr. SE., Columbia.

Commissioner Fugit stated he felt Mr. Lewis would do a good job. But if the property was ever sold that could not be guaranteed. Commissioner Fugit said he just wanted to see a plan.

Darin Fugit yes Frank Abart yes

Mike Morgan yes Pat Smith yes

Jim Green yes Bill Grace yes

Mary Sloan yes Keith Kirkpatrick yes

Motion to deny was unanimous. 8 yes

Mr. Lewis was advised he had three working days to appeal the decision to the County Commission.

 

2. Request by Clifford L. Mings to rezone from R-S (Single Family Residential)

to C-GP (Planned Commercial) of 2.29 acres, more or less, located at

751 N Grace Ln., Columbia.

Bill Florea gave staff report stating that this property is located just east of Columbia near the Lake of the Woods interchange on I-70. The current zoning on this site is R-S. property to the west is zoned C-GP, to the south is R-S, to the east and north is C-G. The 2.29 acres included in the zoning request is currently vacant, however, it is part of a 3 acre tract that includes .71 acres of commercial activity at the north end of the property. The applicant is requesting that 2.29 acres of land be designated as C-GP (Planned Commercial). However, a Review Plan has not been submitted at this time, before the zoning will actually change, both a Review Plan and a Final Development Plan must be submitted and approved. This site is within the Columbia Public School District. Water is provided by Public Water District No. 9. Boone Electric provides electric service. The original zoning for this tract is R-S. In 1983, .71 acres were rezoned to C-G. The Master Plan designates this area as being suitable for residential land uses. The request zoning is not consistent with the Master Plan. Staff notified 94 property owners about this request.

Clifford Mings, 5310 St. Charles Road, Columbia came forward. He said the property was setting in a commercial area on the east, west and north. The property south is zoned residential which Bob Davis owns. In 1986, he was asked to build a building and lease it for 20 years. He thought he was getting permanent zoning. If he gets an applicant for the property, he would come in with a plan. He said no one would build a house having commercial on three (3) sides.

Open public hearing.

Dale Perkins, 5219 St. Charles Road, came forward. He said Mr. Mings had been a long time neighbor. The way the property is now, there was nothing for Mr. Mings to do with the property. The planned growth would not hurt the area. It looks like it will be surrounded by commercial all the way around.

Jack Domlan, 578 N Grace Lane since 1993. His objection to the request was that there is one entrance into Lake of the Woods Subdivision and that is Grace Lane. There are several commercial businesses operating on Grace Lane. Grace Lane is already used by Lake of the Woods Masonry. They have tractor trailer trucks waiting to unload sitting on Grace lane. James Fencing also has vehicles coming and going on Grace Lane. He said there had been road damage and at the present time there is a huge ditch. He could not see where Grace Lane could bear any more traffic.

Shawn Bloom, 5401 Teton, approximately 1,015 ft from the requested rezoning came forward. He said there had been a commercial operation on the property in the past and thought it was already zoned commercial. In light of what has already been said, he added that the road could not support the traffic. There had been damage to the road by previous trucks that had come in and out of there.

Mr. Dual (could not understand name or address)10697 Lake of the Woods came forward. He said he was also concerned about the roads. It is a very nice area but the only way to get to Lake of the Woods is Grace Lane. It is a very narrow road and very dangerous with too many businesses in the area.

John Kabrick, 479 Crater Lake Drive came forward. He wanted to add that the proposed site is bordered to the rear by residential area. If this property is zoned commercial then this adjacent tract will have justification to rezone the next piece, then the next piece and etc. He is concerned about the quality of life in the neighborhood.

Steve Long, 6531 Rocky Mountain came forward. He is president of the neighborhood association. The neighbors were opposed to it for many reasons. The subdivision is one of the safest in Boone County having only one way in, but this would add to the congestion of Grace Lane and cause more damage to the road.

Denise Scott, 556 N Grace Lane, (corner lot of Rocky Mountain and Grace Lane) came forward. She has had the large trucks trying to turn around block her access. Any commercial development in the area would have to come down into the subdivision. She was very much against the request.

Don Jefferson, 2404 N Garth, came forward. He wanted to point out that there was 10 acres at the end of Grace Lane that is for future church development.

Closed public hearing.

Mr. Mings returned to address the concerns. In regards to the traffic problem, Lake of the Woods Brick and Tile did not have a place to unload their semi-trucks. He made a road over to Grace Lane to lessen the traffic problems at his own expense. Mr. Mings said if the property was left residential he could build 10-12 homes creating even more traffic problems. He did not want to create traffic problems to area residents that is why he put the road in.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked staff about the fencing company using the property, to please clarify the zoning question that had come up during testimony. Director Shawver explained that 7/10 of an acre on the north side of this tract was zoned C-G back. The fence company was cited for operating illegally on residential land. The owner sought to have his land on the East Side of Grace Lane rezoned to C-G. That request was denied, but the owner continued to operate on residentially zoned land. The owner continued to operate illegally, until a court order was issued to stop using the land. Mr. Mings allowed the fence company to locate on his commercially zoned land. The site was checked several times, and the operation was contained on the C-G property.

Chairman Kirkpatrick asked with the present zoning of R-S, how many homes could go on the tract? Director Shawver said that approximately 10 homes could be constructed with the current zoning.

Commissioner Abart said he would be reviewing the road damage since this was the first he had heard about it. The roads in the area could not handle commercial usage, but the possibility of 10 more homes in the area would have a traffic impact far grater than that of a "Planned Development".

Commissioner Smith said it seemed like the problem was that there was no other road into the subdivision. Commissioner Abart stated it would be encouraged to develop another road.

Commissioner Sloan said that she had heard all to often that if Commission does not do this, then we could build x amount of homes making it even worse. It some times seams like a threat. Chairman Kirkpatrick said it sometimes sounded like that to him. Sometimes he ignored it and sometimes he lessened to it.

Chairman Kirkpatrick made and Commissioner Morgan second motion to approve request by Clifford L. Mings to rezone from R-S (Single Family Residential) to C-GP (Planned Commercial) of 2.29 acres, more or less, located at 751 N Grace Ln., Columbia.

Keith Kirkpatrick yes Mike Morgan yes

Frank Abart yes Jim Green yes

Pat Smith yes Bill Grace yes

Darin Fugit yes Mary Sloan yes

Motion was unanimous to approve request. 7 yes

 

 

PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS

Request by Betty Fountain and Jay and Mary Dix to approve

a review plan for Copper Creek Planned Residential Development,

located at 7901 E St. Charles Rd., Columbia.

 

Bill Florea gave staff report stating that the property is located 2 miles east of Columbia on St. Charles Road. The property is zoned Agriculture A-2 which is the original zoning. All of the surrounding property is zoned A-2. In 1997, the commission received a request to rezone a 42-acre portion of the property to REC for a recreation center. The Master Plan designates this property as being suitable for residential use. There are no existing structures on the property, which has been in agricultural use. A gas transmission line easement crosses the southeast corner of the property

The proposal is a forty lot residential development, which will require Planned Residential Development and Subdivision approval.

Under the existing A-2 zoning, the property qualifies for up to 47 residential dwelling units. As allowed under a PRD, lots sizes within this development are proposed to be less than the 2.5-acre minimum in the A-2 district. This results in the ability to plat more lots than would be possible in a conventional subdivision. The increased number and of lots makes distribution of utilities, including a central sewer system, more efficient.

The circulation plan appears to be adequate. It will be reviewed for compliance with the Subdivision Regulations and Roadway Regulations during the subdivision review process. The addition of slight horizontal curves to Blackwater Drive could provide both aesthetic and traffic calming enhancements.

As designed, six lots have direct access to St. Charles Road. St. Charles is designated as an arterial on the Major Thoroughfare Plan. Four of the six lots also have frontage on the internal street network. It would be in the public interest to limit direct access to St. Charles from lots that abut it. Lots 22, 23, 26 and 1 also have frontage on internal subdivision streets. Therefore, it will be recommended that Lots 22, 23, 26 and 1 be prohibited from accessing directly to St. Charles Road.

The wastewater treatment facility is to be located between Payette Drive and Lot 18. The developer has proposed buffering the treatment facility from surrounding properties. This is assumed to include offsite properties. A buffering plan has not been submitted.

The proposal scored 58 points on the rating system. Staff notified 13 property owners concerning this request.

Staff recommends approval of the Review Plan subject to the following conditions:

Jim Patchett, of Patchett & Co, 1512 Business Loop 70 W was present to represent the owners.

Patrick McClung, of Phoenix Custom Homes (the developer), 5315 E Trikalla was also present to answer any questions.

Mr. Patchett said without repeating too much of the report, the tract was first reviewed with larger lots with onsite wastewater. After the first concept review this plan was created from having 34 lots with onsite wastewater to 40 lots with collector system. Regarding the recommendations, the developer did not have a problem limiting the access to the four (4) lots. There would be a buffer plan for the wastewater treatment facility.

Open to the public. No one spoke in favor or opposition to the request.

Commissioner Smith asked how a surveyor or engineer designs a residential development. Mr. Patchett said it was a process trying to do a number of lots with the minimal amount streets and utilities that have to be constructed.

Commissioner Green made and Commissioner Fugit second motion to approve request by Betty Fountain and Jay and Mary Dix to approve a review plan for Copper Creek Planned Residential Development, located at 7901 E St. Charles Rd., Columbia with staff recommendations:

PLAT REVIEWS

 

    1. Khanís Subdivision. C-G. S19-T49N-R12W. Rafiqul and Soly Khan, owners.

James Jeffries, Surveyor.

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this one lot plat is located on the East Side of Highway 763 North and on the south side of Prathersville Road. The site is the location of the convenience store formerly known as Blummerís Store. The Columbia municipal limits form the south boundary of the property. The tract is zoned C-G (General Commercial) which is an original 1973 zoning. The property to the west across Highway 763 is zoned C-G & R-M (Residential Moderate Density) The C-G is an original zoning, the R-M was rezoned from C-G in 1977. The property to the north is zoned C-G, as is about 100í to the east. The property beyond the 100í east is zoned M-L (Light Industrial). These are the original 1973 zonings. The property to the south was zoned M-L before it was annexed into the City of Columbia. The current zoning to the south is City zoning designation M-1. The site contains 4.57 acres. The proposed plat is both a minor plat and a multi-use plat. The zoning & subdivision regulations require that any site that is not part of a planned development which is proposed for more than one primary use, as this property is, be plated as a multi-use plat. The proposed uses for this site include a new convenience store to replace the existing one. A strip mall with retail slots. At some point in the future an oil change building and self-storage mini-ware houses are proposed. Before the mini-warehouses can be constructed a conditional use permit will have to be obtained. No direct access to Highway 763 will be allowed by MoDOT as the frontage is limited access right-of-way. Water service will be provided by the City of Columbia as merged with Former Water District #1. There is currently an existing 12" line that runs along Prathersville Road to the north corner of the proposed subdivision. Any additional development on the site that may require additional watermain extensions will need to be worked out with City of Columbia Water & Light. Sewage treatment is proposed to be from the central system that serves Gaslight Acres. The BCRSD indicates that at present there is only approximately 10,000 gal. per day capacity remaining and will be provided on a first come first served basis. This aspect is important in that a number of other proposed developments have indicated this same 10,000 gal. per day as their intended sewer source. The sewer district should be required to approve the sewer plans prior to County Commission sign-off. A waiver of traffic analysis has been requested. The planning staff concurs with the request. This plat has 70 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval with the provisions that the BCRSD give their OK to the sewer plans prior to County Commission sign-off, and that the public works department agrees to the granting of a waiver of traffic analysis.

Jay Gebhardt, with Allstate Consultants, P.C., 3312 Lemone Industrial Blvd. was present to answer questions.

Commissioner Abart concurred with the waiver of the traffic analysis. Commissioner Abart asked if the property would be annexed into the city soon. Mr. Gebhardt stated that the city may want to, but the owner does not. Mr. Yonke stated the city did not make it a requirement for annexation.

Commissioner Sloan made and Commissioner Green seconded motion to approve Khanís Subdivision with staff recommendations:
