Set October 24, 2006, as the public hearing date to consider the appeals by
Matt Ellison, K & E Properties, and Bonnie Keeton in regard to the City
On September 19, 2006, the Planning Commission considered an amendment to
the design review (DR 05-27) for the City Block project, located on the
vacant 4.47 acres just west of the In-Shape fitness facility. The applicant,
Matt Ellison, had requested reconsideration of a condition of approval on
the project regarding the relocation of the trash enclosures.
The Commission voted 4-0 (with Chairman Stirling abstaining) to place the
trash enclosures within the parking lot of the project, with the exception
that one of them could be located behind the buildings if a feasible
location cannot be accommodated within the parking lot.
As required by Section 17.880.003.C, Matt Ellison has completed the required
application, submitted the required appeal fee, and provided a statement
setting forth the specific grounds for the appeal.
Subsequently, on September 28, 2006, a second appeal was filed by Bonnie
Keeton who has also completed the required application, submitted the
required appeal fee, and provided statements as required.
It is recommended that the City Council set October 24, 2006, as the date
for the public hearing on the appeal requests.
