Staff had <br /> recommended a process that included involvement by a design team, staff advisory team, and public <br /> testimony. It was noted that Planning Commission Chair Fisher was not available to make a public <br /> presentation tonight. The Council discussed the timing, noting Council consensus had been <br /> previously reached to support the recommended process. It was indicated that staff had.prepared a <br /> two-sided spreadsheet detailing the process, and the Council desired to obtain public input during the <br /> next two weeks. Following further discussion, Council consensus was reached to table consideration <br /> to the December 1, 2009, Council meeting when Chair Fisher would make a presentation, to direct <br /> staff to post the spreadsheet on the City's website, to make copies available at the libraries and City <br /> Hall, and to accept public input until the December 1, 2009 meeting. <br /> ORDINANCE NO. 2009-12 TABLED — AMENDING SECTION 850 TO REQUIRE A CONDITIONAL <br /> USE PERMIT FOR ACCESSORY BUILDINGS OVER 1.000 SQUARE FEET Planning Director <br /> Teague presented staff's recommendation to approve second reading of an ordinance amendment to <br /> require a conditional use permit (CUP) for accessory buildings over 1,000 square feet. He noted the <br /> locations of existing accessory buildings and advised the revisions requested by the Council at first <br /> reading had been incorporated. Mr. Teague suggested a larger setback only for accessory buildings <br /> larger than 1,000 square feet and to allow flexibility for smaller accessory buildings at a 50-foot <br /> setback. It was noted the Planning Commission had recommended a 75-foot setback without regard <br /> to building size. <br /> The Council discussed its preferred setback distance and desire to balance the interests of residents <br /> and businesses. In addition, the Council considered its recent approval of the Interlachen <br /> maintenance building that incorporated a 95-foot setback. Mr. Teague explained that under a CUP <br /> consideration, a larger setback could be required if rationale existed to do so. <br /> Member Swenson made a motion, seconded by Member Brindle, directing staff to amend <br /> proposed Ordinance No. 2009-12, Section 4 chart and Section 850.11, Subdivision 2, to require <br /> a 95-foot setback for accessory buildings larger than 1,000 square feet and a 50-foot setback <br /> for smaller accessory buildings, and present it for consideration at the December 1, 2009, <br /> meeting. <br /> Ayes: Bennett, Brindle, Housh, Swenson, Hovland <br /> Motion carried. <br /> RESOLUTION NO. 2009-92 ADOPTED ACCEPTING VARIOUS DONATIONS Mayor Hovland <br /> explained that in order to comply with State Statutes; all donations to the City must be adopted by <br /> Resolution and approved by four favorable votes of the Council accepting the donations.
