There are two businesses on the parcel, a Culvers restaurant and a Holiday convenience store. The businesses share access and parking. In September 2000, the City approved the site plan and conditional use permit for the convenience store and restaurant. The applicant is proposing to subdivide the 2.9 acre parcel into two lots. The lot will be subdivided so that each business is on its own lot. Culvers will be located on Lot 1 which is 1.4 acres and Holiday will be located on Lot 2 which is 1.5 acres.

Access to the lots is from Coon Rapids Boulevard and Foley Boulevard. There is a right-in, right-out only from Coon Rapids Boulevard and a right-in, right-out only from Foley Boulevard. Access will not be changed as a result of this subdivision. Access and parking cross easements will be required between the two lots. There will be no physical changes to the site.

Lot 1 (Culvers) has 44 parking spaces and Lot 2 (Holiday) has 29 spaces. The total parking provided for both lots is 73 spaces and the total number required is 62. Overall the the combined site exceeds the parking requirement for the two businesses. However, Culvers, which has 99 seats and has a parking requirement of 50 spaces, is short 6 spaces. The applicant will be providing a cross access and parking agreement between the two parcels to address the issue. 

The two new lots comply with the setback requirements and impervious coverage requirement. There is no minimum lot size requirement.
In Planning Case 18-20, the Planning Commission recommend approval of the preliminary plat with the following conditions:
  1. All comments from the City Engineer be addressed.
  2. All coments from the Anoka County Highway Department be addressed.
  3. A cross access and parking agreement be approve by the City.
