Denied 3-1 per staff recommendation. Majority felt it was too large and could start a rash of similar requests. Vice-Chair Laible voted no on the motion to deny.
3. UC-0075-12 – ISAACMAN REVOCABLE TRUST:
USE PERMITS for the following: 1) allow an automobile maintenance facility (window tinting) within 200 feet of a residential use; 2) existing accessory structures not architecturally compatible with the principal building; and 3) reduce roof pitch for existing accessory structures in conjunction with an existing car wash.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) Allow window tinting to be conducted outside where required to be conducted within an enclosed building; and 2) waive landscaping and screening requirements adjacent to a less intense use.
DESIGN REVIEW for accessory structures in conjunction with a car wash on 0.3 acres

Motion to approve with staff conditions and 1 year review – no decision- 2-2.
There was considerable discussion of this item. The facility has been operating since the early 1990s. The former business owner shut it down, and a long-term employee purchased the business. Then, nearly immediately the first CCPRO complaint was made about the facility. The new owner removed some of the out-of-compliance signs that had been in place for years and began this permitting process. The original use requests for the car wash were approved in 1995 and for the “violation” of a canopy and temporary structure, approval came in 1999. The applicant wishes to use the facility to also do window tinting service, which has been offered at the location for at least 10 years. As for adjacent apartments, there are similar adjacent storage and car wash facilities on the other wide of the complex to the East. Liaison Mike Shannon advised that code enforcement often agrees to continued operations if an applicant is attempting to come into compliance.
Chair Heath-Younce voted no as she is opposed to significant waivers of even pre-existing set back. Vice-Chair Laible voted against stating his concern the applicant was operating illegally pending this process. Members Getter and Gatliff voted to approve stating it was unfair to stop a viable business from continuing to operate as it had for nearly two decades.
4. VS-0072-12 – DR horton, inc:
Approve 4-0 per staff recommendation.
