PUBLIC WORKS

CONDITIONS:

1.         We have no comments regarding the revisions.    

2.         Be advised the dumpster detail has changed since the plan was originally approved.  The depth of the enclosure must be 12 feet.

 

CONCURRENCY MANAGEMENT

CONDITIONS:

1.                   Due to this application requiring a new certificate of capacity, you will be required to pay the concurrency review fee based on the additional square footage.  Therefore, you are adding 1,171 sf which requires a $60 concurrency review fee ($50 base + $10 per 1,000 sf).  This fee is required prior to a Certificate of Capacity being placed on a City Council agenda.

2.                    A Certificate of Capacity approved by City Council is required prior to receiving a Notice to Proceed.  However, the estimated sewer capacity reservation fee shall be paid prior to issuance of a Notice to Proceed, per Resolution 98-27R.  The Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee shall be credited towards the sewer impact fee at the time of building permit. The balance of all impact and tap fees shall be at the rate in effect at the time of building permit.

3.                    You previously paid $714.50 which you will get credited for.  Therefore, $967.30 - $714.5  = $252.80 is required prior to receiving a Notice to Proceed.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1.         Recommend approval with conditions.

INFORMATION:

1.                   You previously paid the Sewer Capacity Reservation Fee equal to 10% of the estimated sanitary sewer impact fee for the last submittal.  For the industrial development, this is 5,100s.f. of building x $600 (Industrial) ÷ 1,000 = $3,060 x 10% = $306.  For the commercial development, this is 3,714s.f. of building x $1,100 (Commercial) ÷ 1,000 = $4,085.40 x 10% = $408.54 .   Per Resolution 98-27R. $408.54 + $306=$714.54.

2.                   With the current revision, the reservation fee would be as follows:  For the industrial development, this is 2,621s.f. of building x $600 (Industrial) ÷ 1,000 = $1,572.60 x 10% = $157.26.  For the commercial development, this is 7,364 s.f. of building x $1,100 (Commercial) ÷ 1,000 = $8,100.40 x 10% = $810.04.   Per Resolution 98-27R $157.26 + $810.04 = $967.30

3.                   Please be advised that the Certificate of Capacity will not be moved forward to City Council for approval until such time as the applicant notifies the Planner that it is needed and the concurrency review fee has been paid.  Your planner will place the item on the next available City Council agenda.
