Chino Valley planners to look at changes to subdivision plan
The Chino Valley Planning and Zoning Commission will look at changes Martin D. Messenger wants to make on his proposed 15-acre single-family residential subdivision on West Road 1North, about 830 feet east of Road 1 West at its 6 p.m. meeting Thursday in the Chino Valley Senior Center.
Pat Clingman, deputy Development Services director, said Messenger wants to have the stipulation "That a final subdivision plat shall be approved by the Town Council prior to any division of the property" removed.
If the commission will not agree to that, then he wants the commission to rezone the 15 acres from SR-1 with one-acre lots to SR-1.6 for 1.6-acre lots.
IN OTHER ACTION:
The commission will look at ways to allow more public comment by posting commercial property next to residential areas prior to developing it or having the developer mail notices to property owners within 300 feet. Clingman said they hope the commission can come up with a recommendation for the size of the sign developers must post on their property.
The commission will discuss requiring greenhouses to be on a minimum of five-acre lots in a Commercial Light Zoning district with a Conditional Use Permit.
The commission will consider adding at the end of land use ordinances a statement, such as: "Because no list of uses can be complete, decisions on unspecified uses shall be rendered by the commission with appeal to the council".
"We are just trying to make the ordinances more user friendly," Clingman said. "This way we can look at what is compatible without having to wait until the next commission meeting for a decision."
