Subject:    PC 18-3, Consider Approval of Preliminary Plat and Resolution 18-51 Granting Final Plat Approval for Pheasant Hills 3rd Addition, Richard Battles
From: Scott Harlicker, Planner

The applicant is requesting preliminary and final plat for Pheasant Hills 3rd Addition. The plat will subdivide an existing lot and an outlot into two single family lots.
The applicant is proposing to plat 2.3 acres into two lots and dedicated right-of-way for Shenandoah Boulevard. The site consists of a 1.6 acre parcel and an outlot. There is a house and detached garage on the 1.6 acre parcel; the outlot is undeveloped. Lot 1 is 1.57 acres and includes the existing home and garage. The lot is a corner lot with frontage on Main Street and Shenandoah Boulevard. Lot 1 complies with the dimensional requirements of the LDR 2 zoning district. The lot is 310 feet wide, 221 feet deep and 1.57 acres in size. Lot 2 is also a corner lot with frontage on 124th Lane and Shenandoah Boulevard. The lot also complies with the dimensional requirements of the LDR2 zoning district. The lot is 90 feet wide, 180 feet deep and 14,538 square feet in size. The plat also includes 80 foot wide platted right-of-way for Shenandoah Boulevard.


There is an existing driveway from 124th Lane that provides access to the existing residence on Lot 1; that driveway will remain. Lot 2 will also have a driveway from 124th Lane. As a condition of the original Pheasant Hills plat, no access was permitted from Shenandoah Boulevard. That should be a condition of this plat also. The County has restricted access from Main Street.

No new sidewalks or trails are required. There is an existing sidewalk on Shenandoah Boulevard and a trail along Main Street.

Park Dedication

The existing lot with the residence was platted as part of Coon Creek Gardens in 1934; however park dedication was never collected. Park dedication has also not been collected on the outlots. Park dedication in the amount of $2,000 per lot should be paid for both lots prior to the plat being recorded.

Grading, Drainage and Utilities

Grading, drainage and utilities have been reviewed by engineering and there are no significant engineering issues.

Planning Commission Meeting

At the Planning Commission meeting held on March 15th, one resident spoke at the public hearing. He asked about the existing outlot and how it is being made to conform with the dimensional requires of the LDR 2 zoning district. The applicant is taking 12 feet from the existing large lot and combining it with the smaller outlot so that it has the needed lot width. The Commission unanimously recommended approval of the proposed plat.
In Planning Case 18-3, the Council approve the preliminary plat and approve Resolution 18-51 granting final plat approval for Pheasant Hills Third Addition with the following conditions:
  1. Compliance with Title 11
  2. All Engineering comments must be addressed
  3. Anoka County Highway Department comments must be addressed
  4. Park dedication fees in the amount of $4,000 ($2,000 per lot) be paid prior to releasing the plat for recording
  5. Access for both parcels must be from 124th Lane. No access allowed from Main Street or Shenandoah Boulevard.
