Conditional Use Permit for a Temporary Portable Building located at 4046 South Riverdale Road

Mr. Dave Long was present at the meeting to discuss his conditional use permit to utilize a temporary portable building for a snowshack located at 4046 South Riverdale Road, which is the Nickelcade site.

Commissioner Limburg clarified that the petitioner is the owner of the property.  He indicated that he was not aware of that until the preplanning work session, he went on to say that he also did not realize that a fireworks stand has already petitioned the City for a business license for the site. Mr. Long informed the Commission that he has not signed a lease with the fireworks company.  He went on to explain that he has talked with Staff, and Staff has indicated that the City would refund the fireworks company’s money if his conditional use permit were approved.

Mr. Long informed the Commission that he would run the snowshack; it is a vested interest for him.  He explained that he would like to open it some time in the spring and run it throughout the summer.

Discussion followed regarding various options.  Mr. Long proposed three options.  The first option was to allow the fireworks stand, and he would operate the snowshack when the fireworks stand was not in there.  He could have the snowshack only.  Or, Mr. Daily informed him of a vending cart concept, and he could utilize a vending cart instead of a snowshack, and the fireworks stand could stay.

Mr. Long and the Commission discussed the City’s vending cart ordinance and the certain requirements that apply to the ordinance; such as, the specific size of the cart, the Planning Commission and the City Council approving a pad site for the cart and some of the other details of the ordinance.  Mr. Long decided that he was not interested in utilizing a vending cart.  He informed the Commission that he would like to go with his original intent of a snowshack.   Commissioner Limburg explained if Mr. Long would like to have the snowshack, the site would not be able to have the portable building for the fireworks stand.

Mr. Long informed the Commission that he would like to locate the snowshack in the center of parking lot near the sign or in front of the building because it would be located near a power source.  He explained if it were located anywhere else, it would be more difficult to obtain power for the structure.   He went on to explain in Sandy City, it is located in the front portion of the parking lot facing toward the grass, and the location seems to work well and that would be his preference.

It was inquired what the snowshack would look like.  Mr. Long indicated that the snowshack would be a white building with a high-pitched blue roof; he noted that it is not a homemade building.  He went on to say that the building has wheels that are removable when the building is set in place.

Commissioner Tanner inquired what dates Mr. Long would like to operate the snowshack.   Mr. Long indicated that he would like to start operating the snowshack as soon as it starting getting warm.  He suggested that he would like to open the snowshack some time in April and close the snowshack in mid to late August.

Motion      Commissioner  Tanner moved to approve the conditional use permit to allow a temporary portable building, specifically a snowshack, located at 4046  South Riverdale  Road, to open no sooner than April and close no later than August 2004.  Commissioner Eskelsen seconded the motion.  The motion passed unanimously.

With no further business to come before the Commission at this time, Commissioner Farr moved to adjourn the meeting.  Commissioner Eskelsen seconded the motion.  The motion passed unanimously. The meeting adjourned at approximately 7:00 p.m.
