Information
Title
Adopt Resolution #17-09-209 Approving a Conditional Use Permit for a Two-Story Accessory Building (Project #17-107); Case of Raymond & Linda Bonifas.
Purpose/Background:
The Applicant is requesting a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the construction of a two-story accessory building at 6451 170th Lane NW.  Minnesota State Building Code classifies the storage space located in the attic space of the proposed accessory building due to the height from floor to ceiling.
Notification:
Staff attempted to notify all Property Owners within a 350 foot radius of the Subject Property of the Public Hearing via Standard US Mail. The Public Hearing was also published in the City's official newsletter, the Anoka County Union Herald.
Observations/Alternatives:
The Subject Property is within the R-1 Rural Residential District.  This district allows for two-story accessory buildings with the issuance of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP).  The Applicant has indicated that no commercial operation or habitation will take place within the second story of the accessory building.  The second story of the building is the storage space within the trusses of the proposed building.  As designed the measurement from floor to ceiling is classified as a second story by Minnesota State Building Code and as a result a CUP is required.  

The proposed structure meets all requirements of City Code Section 117-349 governing accessory buildings for front, rear, side yard setbacks as well as height  from finished grade to mean gable.  The Applicant has indicated that the building will be wrapped with the same vinyl siding and trim as the principal structure. 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing at its meeting on September 7th.  Meeting minutes were not yet available from that meeting to be included in this case. If requested, Staff will update the City Council on the recommendation and outcome of the Planning Commission. 

Alternatives:

Alternative 1: Adopt Resolution #17-09-209 granting a Conditional Use Permit to allow the construction of a two-story accessory building on the Subject Property.  The proposed building meets all requirements of the zoning code as it related to accessory buildings and conditional uses. Staff is supportive of this alternative.

Alternative 2: Do not adopt Resolution #17-09-209 granting a Conditional Use Permit to allow the construction of a two-story accessory building on the Subject Property.   Staff is not supportive of this alternative.
Funding Source:
The Applicant is responsible for all costs associated with this request.
Recommendation:
Staff recommends approval of the requested Conditional Use Permit.
Action:
Motion to adopt Resolution #17-09-209 approving a Conditional Use Permit contingent upon the terms of the Conditional Use Permit and Zoning Code.
