Article 1 – AMENDMENTS TO TITLE AND ZONE MAP

11-7-101 Intent.

It is intended that all amendments to this Title shall be made in accordance with the General Plan of the City. It is hereby declared to be public policy that this Title shall not be amended, unless it can be shown that changed or changing conditions make the proposed amendment necessary to the promotion of the purposes of this Title.

11-7-102 Procedure for Amendments.

(1)    All proposed amendments to Title 11 or to the Official Zone Map shall be submitted first to the Planning Commission for its recommendations, which recommendations shall be submitted to the City Council for its consideration.

(2)    Any person seeking an amendment to those Chapters or to the Official Zone Map shall submit to the Planning Commission a written petition designating the change desired and the reasons therefor and shall pay a filing fee in the amount set forth by a resolution of the City Council. All petitions for a zoning change shall include a vicinity map, drawn to scale and showing the names and addresses of the owners of adjacent property, and a legal description of the property for which the change is sought. The fee required herein shall not be returned to the applicant. The Planning Commission may also initiate amendments to this Title or to the Official Zone Map by recommendation of such amendments to the City Council.

(3)    Upon receipt of the completed petition, the Planning Commission shall schedule and hold a public hearing to consider the request and shall certify its recommendation to the City Council with respect thereto.

(a)    The Planning Commission shall provide reasonable notice of the public hearing in accordance with Section 10-9a-205, Utah Code Annotated 1953, as amended.

(4)    The City Council shall consider the recommendation of the Planning Commission and any written objection filed in accordance with Section 10-9a-205(4), Utah Code Annotated 1953, as amended, of the proposed amendments to Title 11 or the Official Zone Map after providing notice for a public meeting. The City Council may:

(a)    Adopt the proposed amendment to Title 11 or the Official Zone Map;

(b)    Amend and adopt the proposed amendment to Title 11 or the Official Zone Map; or

(Ord. No. 8-05, 05/17/2005; Ord. No. 01-2011, 01/18/2011; Ord. No. 06-2015 § 1, 03/17/2015)

11-7-103 Reversion of Zoning.

(1)    If a project plan, which includes a site plan, subdivision or building plan, has not been approved within one (1) year of the establishment of the new zoning classification, or if an approved project plan or preliminary project plan expires following a rezoning, the Planning Commission may initiate a review of the most recent zoning classification. The Commission may choose to recommend rezoning the property to the prior classification or to a new one, or the Commission may recommend keeping the existing zoning in place. Any Commission recommendation to change the existing zoning classification or restore the former classification must be transmitted to the Council and is subject to the procedure for amendments as per Section 11-7-102.

(2)    Denial of an application to amend the zoning map to reclassify any parcel of property shall prohibit the filing of another application to amend the zoning map to reclassify the same parcel of property, or any portion thereof, to the same zone classification within one (1) year of the date of the final denial by the municipal council of the previous application unless the planning and zoning review committee finds that there has been a substantial change in the circumstances or sufficient new evidence as submitted by the applicant in writing since the denial of the previous application to merit consideration of a second application within the one (1) year time period.

(Ord. No. 13-05, 06/07/2005)

Article 2 – CONDITIONAL USE PROVISIONS

11-7-201 Purpose and Intent.

The purpose and intent of this chapter is to establish standards for land uses listed as conditional uses (designated as “C” in Section 11-4-301, Land Use Matrix). Conditional uses are generally similar to permitted uses, but because of unique characteristics or potential impact on the municipality, surrounding neighbors or adjacent land uses, may only be compatible in certain areas and only if certain conditions are required that mitigate or eliminate the detrimental impacts.

11-7-202 Conditional Use Permit.

A conditional use permit shall be required for all uses listed as conditional in the respective zoning district. This permit may only be issued upon approval of the Planning Commission. A conditional use permit shall make the approved use allowable at the specific location and the right of the approved use with its conditions shall run with the property, unless the permit has expired as provided under Section 11-7-209 or has been revoked as provided under Section 11-7-211. In the event that the conditions cannot be met or a change occurs from the original approval, an amendment to the original conditional use permit shall be required. If the use is discontinued for a continuous period of one (1) year, a new conditional permit is required.

11-7-203 Review Procedure.

(1)    Pre-Application Meeting – The purpose of the pre-application conference is to provide an opportunity for the applicant to present a basic sketch of what is being proposed for the site prior to formal application. The meeting is to be scheduled by the applicant with the Planning Division staff. This meeting will provide a chance to discuss the process, site development standards (setbacks, landscaping, parking, fencing, etc.) and other aspects of the project in a less formal setting, along with identifying major concerns prior to formal application.

(2)    Formal Application – Application for a conditional use permit shall be made to the Planning Commission at the Springville Community Development Department. The applicant shall prepare and submit a completed application form, payment of review fees, along with the information and required number of copies outlined in Article 4 of this Chapter for site plan approval. All the information required for application shall be provided prior to scheduling the item for the Planning Commission agenda.

Each application for, and instance of, a conditional use shall be considered a unique situation and shall not be construed as precedent for similar requests.

(3)    Development Review Committee Review – The Development Review Committee shall review all applications to determine conformance with all applicable City ordinances and standards. If the site plan is determined to meet City ordinances and standards, the DRC will forward the submission to the Planning Commission. Otherwise, the application will be returned to the applicant for appropriate modification. The application should not proceed to the Planning Commission if it does not meet the requirements of the City Code and other applicable standards, along with the requirements of other reviewing agencies. The DRC may forward applications to the Planning Commission subject to variances, waivers, modifications or amendments being proposed by the applicant. During the meeting the applicant will be given the opportunity to make presentations, ask questions and propose alternative conditions for consideration.

(4)    Notice – Notice of a public hearing to be held by the Planning Commission to consider the conditional use permit shall be given at least ten (10) days before the date of the hearing in accordance with the Utah State Code. Additionally, at least seven (7) days prior to the Planning Commission meeting during which the conditional use permit will be considered, the Planning Division may post a sign on each frontage of the subject property stating the proposed use, along with the date, time and location of the meeting during which the conditional use permit will be considered.

(5)    Planning Commission Review and Action – The Planning Commission shall review relevant portions of the completed application, along with comments from the DRC and the Planning Staff report. After review of the item, the Planning Commission may approve, conditionally approve or deny the proposed conditional use permit application. (Ord. No. 05-2010, 04/20/2010; Ord. No. 21-2017 § 1, 09/19/2017)

11-7-208 Building Permit.

Upon receipt of a conditional use permit, the applicant shall take such permit to the Community Development Director who will review the permit and conditions attached. Based on this review and compliance with those conditions, and any conditions which might develop based on the Building Official’s review of the project, the Building Official may approve an application for a building permit. The Community Development Director shall ensure that the development is undertaken and completed in compliance with the conditions of the conditional use permit prior to issuance of a certificate of occupancy.

11-7-209 Expiration.

(1)    Substantial Action – Unless there is substantial action occurring within one (1) year after issuance of the conditional use permit, as determined by the Planning Commission, the permit shall expire. The Planning Commission may grant a maximum extension of six (6) months under exceptional circumstances. For purposes of determining substantial action, the Commission shall consider whether or not the use has commenced operating on the site or construction on the site has begun.

(2)    Other Conditions for Expiration – An approved conditional use permit shall expire if a permitted use or a different conditional use replaces the use allowed under the permit. The conditional use permit shall also expire if the use is discontinued for a continuous period of one year. Once the conditional use permit has expired, a new conditional use permit shall be required in order to occupy the site.

11-7-210 Amendment of the Conditional Use Permit.

Once issued, a conditional use permit shall not be enlarged, changed, extended, increased in intensity, or relocated except by approval of the Planning Commission.

11-7-211 Revocation.

A conditional use permit may be revoked if any of the conditions or terms are violated; however, the holder of the permit shall first be afforded an opportunity to be heard before the Planning Commission and show cause as to why the permit should not be revoked. A violation of a condition or term of a permit shall constitute a violation of this Code, and the revocation of a permit shall not prohibit prosecution or any other legal action taken on account of the violation. The decision of the Planning Commission to revoke a conditional use permit may be appealed to the Board of Adjustment within ten (10) days of the Commission’s decision.

Article 3 – DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS

11-7-301 Development Agreements.

The City Council hereby reserves the right to require and enter into a development agreement with any applicant for development approval under the provisions of this Chapter, the Subdivision Ordinance, or any other ordinance or resolution of the City. The development agreement may address specific details about issues that have yet to be completely resolved, issues regarding phasing of a project, or any other requirement of the City Council.

Article 4 – SITE PLAN REVIEW AND PROCEDURE

11-7-401 Purpose.

The site plan review process is to help ensure that new development and improvements on existing properties will:

(4)    Provide safe and convenient vehicular and pedestrian access and circulation;

(5)    Provide adequate drainage of surface water and reduce potential for flood damage;

(6)    Ensure better design, quality and character of the new development and improvement; and

(7)    Contribute to the orderly growth and contextual and harmonious appearance of the City.

11-7-402 Application and Review Process.

(1)    Site plan review shall be required for:

(a)    All new development;

(b)    All new additions to existing sites which increase the floor area of the premises by more than twenty percent (20%) or increase the original floor area of the premises by over twenty percent (20%) when combined with one (1) or more previous expansions that have occurred over a period of time;

(c)    Any significant change proposed after site plan approval has been granted by the approving body; and

(d)    Any conditional use (in addition to any other specific requirements listed in Article 2 of this Chapter).

(2)    Administrative and Planning Commission Site Plan Review and Action – All site plans for single family detached dwellings, twin homes and duplexes, along with multi-family, commercial and industrial developments of up to fifteen thousand (15,000) square feet of gross floor area may be approved administratively by the Springville City Planning Administrator, provided no exceptions to the site plan requirements are being requested. All other site plans shall be forwarded to the Planning Commission for final action. All site plan approvals shall be subject to meeting all of the requirements of the laws, codes, standards, resolutions, and ordinances of Springville City, the State of Utah, and the United States.

(3)    Phased Development Proposals – For any development proposed to be developed in phases, a site plan shall be prepared for the first phase, along with an overall development plan for the proposed additional phases. Any multi phase development plan and any modifications to any multi phase development plan shall be reviewed by the Planning Commission along with subsequent phases, unless those phases meet the requirements of subsection (2) of this section for allowing administrative review. The purpose of the overall development plan is to establish general planning and development control parameters for projects that will be developed in phases with multiple submittals, while allowing sufficient flexibility to permit detailed planning in subsequent submittals. The approval of an overall development plan does not establish any vested right to develop any property in accordance with the plan. Vesting shall occur as site plan approval is received for each phase of the overall development plan. (Ord. No. 03-2011, 02/15/2011)
