Approved 3-2 with staff conditions, plus additional conditions of a detached sidewalk along Russell in agreement with policies regarding detached sidewalks on section-line roads, and allowance for an 8’ attached parallel wall on the east side of the development.

The negative votes were in opposition to the wall. Staff advised this case would require a 40 inch separation between the existing 6 foot wall and the new wall. Such walls present a safety hazard for children and animals as well as a hiding place for possible criminal activity. Those voting no supported the detached sidewalk on Russell.

This was a contentious item. Many neighbors appeared in opposition and none in favor. The applicant had delayed this item twice, and it appears there is great friction between the church leadership and the neighborhood. The church has purchased several homes and demolished them leaving open gravel/desert neighbors report cause dust and related issues. The neighbors were opposed to temporary parking echoing staff concerns. The TAB was concerned that the minimal and incomplete information does not give the members enough information to make informed recommendations. We requested a final plan, subject to modification, and legal counsel for the church denied the request. TAB members pointed out several specific examples of churches that had taken actions to fit into RNP areas and asked if this applicant would consider the same. The attorney declined and also stated that the RNP-1 overlay should be disregarded because developments adjacent to it (churches and PF) have rendered the neighborhood essentially non-residential. She also stated that the church has plans to continue to acquire surrounding home sites, but could not afford to make basic improvements beyond those required for “temporary parking” they requested. They also tripled the requested review time to three years.

In the end, the TAB vote focused on the lack of a final plan for a large project, the lack of adequate lighting for proposed large parking areas, and the refusal to provide adequate landscaping. These positions render the project incompatible with the neighborhood.
