River Heights P&Z approves city plan, considers new
January 23, 2009 | RIVER HEIGHTS--River
Heights' city plan is ready for the City Council to
review after some last minute adjustments Tuesday by
the Planning and Zoning Commission.
Commissioner Chris Milbank motion
that the city plan be submitted to the council for acceptance
was seconded by Lorin Zollinger, following last minute
discussions relating to the emergency reserve capacity
of River Heights' two reservoirs.
In other business, Providence resident
and developer Dan Hogan appeared before the commission
to propose a new subdivision on a parcel of land west
of 600 East at 800 South.
"We're trying to get some affordable
lots in there," said Hogan. "There's a lot of building
lots out there but they're very expensive."
Hogan said he hoped to be able to
offer lots for about $40,000, with home prices including
lots around $140,000, a number he derived based on the
average Cache Valley income of about $45,000.
"Times change and circumstances
change," said Hogan. "I don't want to come in and put
all of the money in my pocket."
The commission expressed concerns
over the proposed subdivision's access and road design
as well as drainage of water, which often stands on
the property. The commission decided to meet at the
property on Feb. 3 at 5 p.m. in order to get a better
understanding of the layout of the proposed Boulder
