County planning board meets Wednesday

The Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission will take a second look at a subdivision regulation amendment and zoning ordinance amendments at its first meeting of 2006.

The commission is meeting Wednesday in Prescott.

The commission first heard the amendments Dec. 21 in Cottonwood. They took no action.

The subdivision regulation amendment allows for development services officials to approve minor modifications to recorded plats.

The proposed amendments include: the expansion of non-conforming uses and the requirement of a use permit before any expansion of existing non-conforming use; an increase in the number of people allowed within a single family dwelling to conform with the State Health Care Licensing agency in relation to foster care or similar residential facilities; and the definition of a guest home and secondary medical dwelling to allow the medical dwelling in a guest home and eliminate the 120-day time limit on the use of a guest home.

New business on the agenda include:

• A preliminary plat for phases 10, 12 and 13 of Talking Ranch Road. The preliminary plat is for 225 single-family residential lots, ranging in size from one-half acre to three acres, on 327 acres of the Talking Rock Ranch Planned Area Development (PAD) in the Williamson Valley area.

• A request for a use permit from Troy and Sabrina Huffman to allow them to live in a temporary dwelling for 12 months on 19.4 acres in the community of Peeple's Valley.

• A zoning map change from residential; rural two-acre minimum to a PAD to allow 194 single family residential lots, five acres of commercial and a one acre fire station site for the Antelope Creek subdivision in the community of Congress.

• Use permit requests by Daniel Kropp to allow for the construction of four aircraft hangers and to allow aircraft to taxi to and from the Moreton Airstrip in the Wickenburg area.

• An amendment to the zoning ordinance in relation to PADs requirements.

The planning and zoning commission meets at 9:30 a.m. in the supervisor's hearing room at the Yavapai County Administrative Services Building located at 1015 Fair St., Prescott.
