DISCUSSION
Project Description

The applicant is proposing to subdivide a 63,772 square foot (1.46 acres) lot into two lots. There is an existing residence on Parcel 2, it consists of the home and a detached garage. The existing residence will remain on Lot 2. 

The new lot (Parcel 1) complies with the dimensional requirements of the LDR2 zoning district. The lot is 90 feet wide, 262 feet deep and 23,590 square feet. Parcel 2, the existing homestead, also complies with the dimensional requirements of the LDR2 zoning district. It is 153 feet wide, 262 feet deep and 40,132 square feet. The minimum lot width is 80, minimum lot depth is 135 feet and minimum lot area is 10,800 square feet. The home and detached garage comply with the required side yard setback from the new lot line. The existing detached garage does not comply with the front yard setback. That situation does not change as a result of this lot split.

Both lots have frontage on 124th Lane and Main Street. However, access to both lots will be limited to 124th Lane. The existing residence has a driveway from 124th Lane.

The City Engineer has reviewed the proposed lot split, his memo is attached.

Park Dedication

The original lot was platted as part of Coon Creek Gardens in 1934, predating park dedication fees. Park dedication should be paid for the two lots at this time.

  1. All Comments of the City Engineer be addressed.
  2. Compliance with Title 11, Land Development regulations
  3. Park dedication for the two lots be paid in the amount of $4,000 ($2,000 per lot) prior to releasing the lot split for recording.
