On August 9, 2016, the City Council had a presentation from the Matt Wanner of the Downtown Merchants Association concerning the Downtown Development District. The Council directed staff to meet with Mr. Wanner and return to the Council by September 20, 2016 with a report of the Downtown Development District. The staff met with Mr. Wanner on August 16, 2016 and discussed his ideas for a Downtown Development District. Staff reviewed the Cook Downtown Plan and drafted a Downtown Development District and a proposed Downtown Development District map. Subsequent attempts to meet with Mr. Wanner have been unsuccessful. The draft Downtown Development District eliminates the off-street parking requirements contained in the C-2 and C-3 Zoning Districts. The draft Downtown Development District also eliminate uses that are contained in the C-3 zoning district, such as contractor storage yards and BMX tracks. Attached is the Cook Plan; the draft of a Downtown Development District and a proposed zoning map. Council direction.
|a.||City owned parking lot at corner of 3rd and Andy Devine|
|An inquiry has been made whether the City would be willing to sell the parking lot at the corner of Andy Devine and 3rd Street. Staff would like direction from Council if there is interest in selling the lot to a private investor. |
|b.||Consideration of Request for Sewer Extension Variance at 5 Palo Christi Road, ENG16-0037|
Staff has received a request from Lois Cantrell-Viola for a sewer extension variance for an existing home at 5 Palo Christi Road. The subject property is approximately 4 acres in size and contains a 2,700 square foot home which was built in 1960. It is understood that the septic system has failed and requires a permit to repair. The closest sewer main is located in Gates Avenue approximately 470 feet away. Section 4.2(G)2 of the Utility Regulations requires that an existing home with a failing septic system connect to the sewer, when such sewer is within 500 feet of the property. On August 25, 2016, the Municipal Utility Commission reviewed this request and recommended that the sewer variance be granted due to cost. The Municipal Utility Commission voted 5-0 to recommend waiving the sewer extension requirement. Staff recommends requiring the sewer extension as required by ordinance. If cost is the sole reason for granting a waiver, then City participation should be considered.
|c.||Council Direction on Reclaimed Water Injection Well Project|
|A Reclaimed Water Reuse Study was completed last year. Three alternative projects were examined. All the projects would be beneficial to Kingman's water system and water supply, and are not mutually exclusive. Staff recommends proceeding with procurement of design services for the Reclaimed Water Injection Well Project. |
