GENERAL WECOME NOTICE BY CHAIRWOMAN


SECREARTY -BOARD MEMBER TERM UPDATE

Ms. Jones requested all members to vocalize their intention to remain on the Board. Three-Year terms need to be renewed by City Council. No business can be voted on today.


NEW BUISNESS

Ms. Brannan discussed Chapter 48 and Block 12 improvements. Ms. Gorman said it was well done asked that the board look at it again and she will take it to Planning & Zoning to finalize. Ms. Brannan believes there needs to be minimum standards for the businesses in town. Ms.

Gorman did send a letter to the owners of Block 12 and she has heard back from one owner and they were not interested. Ms. Brannan does not think volunteers should get on the second story. Ms. Gorman agreed.


Ms. Gorman asked for a continuance of the Variance for Mr. Roth. She requested a meeting in two weeks, Monday August 10, 2020 to vote on the Variance.


Ms. Gorman discussed foreclornre process. Mr. Missall said this board levies fines and Council decides if they will foreclose. Mr. Koberlein cleared up the process by saying it is up to Council to budget the foreclosure execution after this Board files the lien. This board is adjudicatory and decides on the fine. The law says this Board will determine foreclosure, but in reality, the Council has the budget to determine foreclosure. Court and attorney fees apply to foreclosures so Council has to have the final say on foreclosures. Mr. Koberlein discussed

the age of these liens and when the foreclosure process can begin. In recent years, there has been a budget for three foreclosures. Ms. Brannan said the City doesn't want to own all these properties and they need to be discussed case-by-case basis for foreclosures. The City recently went through three test cases and they were resolved. Mr. Koberlein explained if you allow the fines to accrue too much you open the door to additional legal issues including the 8111 amendment. Mr. Missall asks is they have to vote on a lien. Mr. Koberlein explained that it is automatic once the fines are filed. Ms. Jones (audience) does not think that Council understood that the liens were filed and it appears they have fallen through the cracks and that

is why some of the fines are so high. Mr. Koberlein said there is not one lien less than 3 years old and it may be an issue of staggered terms as the foreclosures come up and then the discussion gets lost. Ms. Gorman told the Board about the new software that will help with tracking code enforcement in be future.


Ms. Brannan feels like this board has been understaffed and she is glad there is now a staff devoted to them.


Mr. Carson brought up email addresses. Ms. Jones will assist everyone in getting to their City emails.


Ms. Brannan asked the board i: they have their Rules and Procedures book and Land and Development Regs. Ms. Gorrr:.an suggested everyone refers to the Municode website instead of updating the hard copy.

SUMMARY


The existing Camellia Plantation, Pha 2 was annexed in 2005 and consists of 26.170 acres. Since the property was annexed, the City failed to assign a. Zoning designation that has led to several issues with setbacks. Currently we have a situation concerning a new tome that does not meet the required 35' setback. During the site plan review, information in the Camellia Plantation file lead staff to believe the property was zoned Rl-A which has 30' setback requirements. It wasn't until later it was discovered that the plat required 35' which is the setback requirement for R-1 Zoning. After fwrther research we found that an Ordinance was never adopted giving this development a zoning designation and the new home was non-compliant since it did not meet the required setback of 35'. Camellia Plantation Pmse 2 Rezoning to R-1 was approved on June 16, 2020.


The existing land use is residential. C::mellia Plantation Phase 2 currently meets the minimum requirements for R-1 zoning.
