5. officer memorial marker program - placements within srcc boundaries.
presenter: officer jason huskins, apd
officer huskins is a 6 yr veteran who has taken this project on to honor the apd
officers killed in the line of duty. ordinance changes and right-of-way
variances have been a hurdle to the placement of the markers. each marker is 6
inches thick, 20 inches wide and 5 feet tall with a picture of the badge and
synopsis of the event and officer information at the time of death. there is
currently one installed on congress at the school for the deaf and two others
installed around the city with the total being 17 and installation goal one
year. apd cadets will be tasked with upkeep with the city responsible for
vandalism. some residents feel the wording and size of the memorials is
inappropriate and are opposed to having these placed in residential areas or in
front on their homes.
6. 1406-1506 parker lane: neighborhood plan amendment (NPA-2010-0021.2) and
rezoning case (C14-2010-0140) to increase use from single family to "higher
density single family" (SF-6 or MF). presenter: representative from eroc
neighbrhood plan area.
the lots in question are four separate lots each zoned SF-3 for a total of .96
acres. the owner is proposing to build 12 homes on the property which requires
a change to the neighborhood plan as well as a request to upzone. the direct
neighbors feel strongly that the proposal is excessive with respect to the area
and oppose the zoning request. interested parties will continue to try and
resolve the issue.
7. C20-2010-019 proposed amendment to land development code regarding variances
to NCCDs. presenter: jean mather
the proposed amendment is to designate the board of adjustment as the sole body
to hear and decide a request for a variance from a requirement of the NCCD,and
to consider an appeal of a decision of the building official regarding a site
development regulation prescribed by the NCCD.
MOTION:jean/sam - to oppose the changes and have claudette lowe write a letter
on behalf of SRCC = PASSED
