Flashing beacon signs at the intersection of Back Loop and Mendenhall Loop Roads (CSP2019 0005)

The State DOT&PF proposes to install yellow and red flashing beacon signs near the intersection of Back Loop Road and Mendenhall Loop Road.

An accessory apartment in the Montana Creek West Planning Unit Development (USE2019 0014)

The applicant requests a Conditional Use Permit for the development of an attached 600 square foot accessory apartment on an undersized lot within the Montana Creek West Planned Unit Development (Phase 2B).   The accessory apartment would be part of a two story, single-family dwelling.

Extension of the downtown Alternative Development Overlay District (ADOD) (AME2019 0006)

The purpose of the ADOD is to provide adequate minimum standards and procedures for the construction of new residential buildings and the expansion, restoration, or repair of existing residential buildings, while providing time to implement new zoning regulations. This extension provides additional time for the review and adoption of new zoning for the downtown neighborhoods, where a significant number of properties are considered to be nonconforming with their current zoning.
