City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 02/07/2018  
Subject:    PC 17-40, Consider Resolution 18-29 Approving a Lot Split at 2329 124th Lane, Mason Home Company
From: Scott Harlicker, Planner

The applicant is requesting City Council approval of Resolution 18-29 approving a lot split to subdivide a single family lot into two lots.
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 feet, 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.

Planning Commission Meeting

At the Planning Commission meeting held on January 18th, no one spoke at the public hearing. The Commission discussed possible location of the driveway. Staff explained that there is sufficient right-of-way on 124th Avenue to accommodate a driveway. The Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the proposed lot split. 
In Planning Case 17-40, the City Council approve Resolution 18-29 approving the proposed lot split with the following conditions:
  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.
  4. All comments of Anoka County Highway Department be addressed.
