Information
Title:
Adopt Resolution #17-09-218 Granting a Conditional Use Permit for Motor Vehicle Sales at 7103 Highway 10 NW (Project No. 17-140); Case of Motors on 10
Purpose/Background:
The purpose of this case is to consider a Conditional Use Permit for Motor Vehicle Sales at 7103 Highway 10 NW.
Notification:
Staff has attempted to notify all Property Owners within 350 feet of the Property of the Public Hearing. The Public Hearing Notice was published in the Anoka County UnionHerald.
Observations/Alternatives:
The request for Conditional Use Permit will allow the expansion of a parking lot to facilitate motor vehicle sales. For enforcement and review purposes, the City made motor vehicle sales a Conditional Use Permit in 2009. The request, overall, seems reasonable, with exceptions outlined below.

The expansion shall require an easement with the City for use of City-owned property for portions of the proposed stormwater improvements.

The proposed expansion is deficient in front yard setbacks for parking lots. The Planning Commission is considering a Variance to this standard on Thursday, September 7. Staff will provide a verbal update of this action at the September 12 City Council Meeting. The parcel is odd-shaped, and the building is screened from view from Highway 10. The City has had enforcement difficulties with past users of this parcel, using the unimproved area for display of vehicles for sale in violation of City Code. Expansion of the parking lot would improve the condition of the property and reduce the amount of enforcement action necessary on the parcel.

The proposed stormwater pond also utilizes a piece of City-owned property, necessitating the need for an easement. An easement has been prepared by the Assistant City Administrator/Economic Development Manager in consultation with the City Attorney and is attached to this case.
Funding Source:
All costs associated with processing the Application are the responsibility of the Applicant.
Recommendation:
Staff recommends approval of the Conditional Use Permit to allow the expansion of the parking lot. The Planning Commission will consider a recommendation at their September 7 Meeting. Staff will provide an update on this recommendation at the September 12 City Council Meeting.
Action:
Motion to adopt Resolution #17-09-218 granting a Conditional Use Permit for Motor Vehicle Sales and Easements for Stormwater purposes, contingent upon compliance with the Staff Review Letter.
