Chairman Betts mentioned that there were some changes made to the Minutes of January 18,
2005. Under #2 of the Work Session, it should read, “Mr. Esparza

that the Public
Hearings
from the cancelled January 4
th

have been rescheduled for February 1, 2005.”

subdivision.” In the sixth paragraph, insert
can
in the second sentence (“. . .
can
be developed,
rather than four per acre.”). In the eighth paragraph, at the end of the second line, it should read,
“. . . their lots as long
as
they . . . “ rather than

On the last page, strike

Vice
, in
front of Chairman Betts’ name on the Regular Session minutes.
Chairman Betts announced that Item #7 has been stricken from the Agenda.
Regarding the Chairman sitting in the middle, Chairman Betts stated that he prefers to sit at
either end since he has problems with peripheral vision and being on the end allows him to see
the whole dais.
Chairman Betts asked about where sexually oriented businesses are to be located now that all the
Commerce Park lots have been sold. Mr. Esparza stated that something would have to be looked
at very soon to determine what can be done to accommodate a sexually oriented business. The
Town may have to come up with another district or something. It will have to be moved up on
the priority list.
Mr. Esparza stated that the movie theater project will be completed and should hopefully be open
in October, which is a conservative estimate. There will also be a 5,000 square foot Italian
restaurant at that site.
Mr. Esparza met with Loras Rauch of Contract Planning Services on January 21, 2005. He
presented her with the Town Code, the General Plan, and the 2020 Vision Plan. They went over
the scope of work and she feels very confident that she can complete the work with the budget
that has been allocated. She has requested that when she comes up, she would like to combine
meetings with everyone in order to minimize her trips up here.

DISCUSSION/CONSIDERATION
RE: PUD 05-014
Review of changes to site plan for a rezone to (PUD), Planned Unit Development of a 15-
acre parcel located south of the Lakeside Summer Homes. The current zoning is R1-4.
APN 212-29-181. The applicant is Westco Development Corp.
Mr. Esparza presented the Staff Report and explained that changes were made based on the
comments received previously. The lots were changed from 66 down to 60, which allowed for
larger lots for those backing up to Wonderland Acres. They also created a buffer for the
residents along Navajo Lane and created a trail. The lot sizes were increased for those backing
to the lots along Navajo.
Mr. John Murphy stated they adjusted the plat. They decreased the number of lots and increased
the size of the lots that borders the lots along Navajo. The more dense lots are now in the center
of the subdivision. One other concern expressed last time was the drainage along the lots
backing the properties along Navajo Lane. The drainage could be incorporated into the walking
path if necessary. Discussion was held concerning the changes that had been made since the first
presentation.
Mr. Joe Mahon stated that he wished the subdivision was not going to happen, but realizes it will
probably go forward. He questioned who was responsible for the drainage in Tract A in the 15’
buffer zone. Mr. Mahon stated that the subdivision was the “kiss of death” for Yeager and
wanted to know if the Town was going to be repairing Yeager once the “abomination” was built.
Mr. Esparza stated that a drainage study will have to be done and that there will also be a traffic
study done which will raise Yeager up closer to the top of the repair/rehab list.
Ms. Diane Petrovich, who lives on Yeager, stated she is very concerned about the additional
traffic and what it will do to the road. The location of the entrance/exit is very dangerous. When
there is ice there, it never clears. People never stop at the stop sign now. Ms. Petrovich asked
what the change to a PUD means and Mr. Esparza explained that the PUD requires 30% open
space. Ms. Petrovich stated that the area could not handle so many homes and the additional
traffic. Mr. Esparza stated that the Streets and Roads Department would have a say in the
development. Chairman Betts stated that the Code allows up to 60 homes in the Yeager Meadow
area. Unfortunately, right now there are no impact fees required, however, the impact on Yeager
and the surrounding area will have to be taken into consideration.
Discussion was held concerning Yeager Lane, the small lot sizes, detention basins, and why the
developer chose to go with a PUD.
6.
DISCUSSION/CONSIDERATION
RE: SPR 05-208
Discussion on a proposed site plan for a new 64-unit apartment complex to be located at
1800 E. White Mountain Boulevard. The current zoning is C-1. APN(s) 211-32-
037/037C. The applicant is Luckenbill Associates, LLC.
Mr. Esparza presented the Staff Report and stated that it would be a very nice looking project.
Because some of the neighbors in the area had some concerns about the project, the developers
would be contacting many of the neighbors to explain that the apartments were geared to
accommodate working families.
Mr. Doug Whitneybell, the architect, stated that it was a combination of one and two-story
buildings and that they tried to be sensitive in the arrangement and where they are located.
Discussion was held concerning perimeter fencing, density, and the project timeline.
Mr. Joe Russell asked if it was a government subsidized complex and was assured that there
would be no Section 8 or public housing.
Ms. Barbara Teague asked if there would be any playground areas and was told that the project
would include playgrounds.
7.
PUBLIC HEARING/CONSIDERATION/ACTION
RE: PUD 05-013
Public hearing and action on a request for a rezone to (PUD), Planned Unit Development
of a one-acre parcel located on the corner of Pinecrest and Cottontail Lanes. The current
zoning is C-1. APN 211-27-036B. The applicant is Reality Home Builders.
Request for rezoning to PUD withdrawn.
8.
PUBLIC HEARING/CONSIDERATION/ACTION
RE: CHPATER 16.14
MOUNTAINSIDE DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS
Public hearing and action on a recommendation to Town Council regarding a new
chapter regulating mountainside development on slopes greater than 10 percent within
the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside
Mr. Esparza presented the Staff Report and reviewed the main points. The Fire Department
requested that the driveway width be 12’, rather than 10’.
Mr. Jim Matteson, the Town Engineer, stated that he had talked to virtually every engineer in the
area and each said that the regulations would add no significant costs or problems. He stated that
the cost for a subdivision would not increase measurably since the designs on steep slopes must
have drainage and geo-technical studies anyway. He estimated that a large home on a steep lot
might incur an additional cost of $350 to $500 for massing sketches by the architect.
Chairman Betts stated that in trying to put together the regulations, they tried to be very
conservative.
Vice Chairman Forbeck moved to go into Public Hearing at 7:29 p.m. Commissioner
Gilbert seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Mr. Rob Terrell, one of the owner/developers of Elk Ridge Estates, has read the ordinance and
has found several things that differ from what has been presented. He inquired what was wrong
with the Uniform Building Code. He stated that they are especially concerned with “O” through
“Z” on page three. Mr. Terrell stated that when you are in the field, there is such a thing as
“value engineering”, which is done in conjunction with the building inspector. The value
engineering is one of the things you need to consider when you are building, especially in a
topographical environment.
Mr. Terrell also expressed his concerns about requiring all the permits, especially for clearing,
grubbing, and grading. Also, concerning the additional costs, Mr. Murphy had told him that
what is required would cost about $45,000 which is a gross difference from between $250 to
$500. Mr. Terrell gave pictures of various log homes that he believes would not be allowed,
according to the proposed regulations.
Discussion was held concerning the meetings dealing with the development of the regulations.
Vice Chairman Forbeck stated she had hoped Mr. Terrell would have taken part in the meetings,
but he stated he had never been invited.
Discussion was held concerning the concerns Mr. Terrell had mentioned. Mr. Matteson stated
that the UBC and the mountainside regulations do not compete with each other. It provides
guidance for the development of the subdivision and the esthetic guidance for the placing of
individual homes on individual lots. These regulations augment the UBC from the esthetic
standpoint. Also, State law requires that any plans that are submitted to any agency for review
be stamped and sealed by the appropriate discipline, whether it is the architect, landscape
architect, civil engineering, or whatever. Mr. Matteson discussed value engineering.
Mr. Chuck Terrell stated that he felt the regulations need to be looked at a little more closely
before it is adopted. He felt that the regulations are being pushed through, without thinking it
through.
Mr. Joe Russell expressed that he feels the ordinance is a good one. He has seen what can
happen when hillsides are developed and the dynamics of the hillside is changed. One of his
main concerns when building on a hillside is fire. Mr. Russell stated that shake shingles, both
untreated and treated, should be outlawed. Also, no plastic skylights should be allowed. Both
shake shingles and plastic skylights are fire hazards. The defensible zones around houses built
on a hillside need to be larger. Mr. Russell stated that the ordinance would work only if it is
stringently enforced.
Ms. Barbara Teague stated that the Mountainside Development Regulations are essential for the
Town. Ms. Teague discussed the specific areas of the regulations she especially liked. She also
mentioned that the architect requirement protects the homeowner.
Rob Terrell stated that he is not opposed to the regulations, just the parts that add an inordinate
amount of costs.
Mr. Russell wanted to stress that if there is going to be a hillside ordinance then it needs to be
backed up and enforced.
Chuck Terrell stated that he is not against development in the town, but does not want it moved
forward too fast.
Vice Chairman Forbeck moved to go out of Public Hearing at 8:00 p.m. Commissioner
Williams seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Mr. Esparza stated that he sensed that Section 16.14.060,
Documentary Requirements and
Certification
, was causing the most concern. It seems there is some issue there as far as what the
true cost would be. Staff will take all the comments back and study the areas of concern.
Mr. Matteson stated that other than the massing plan/diagram of the individual homes, the
requirements mentioned are already required. State law requires that a technical registrant of the
appropriate discipline must stamp all construction plans.
Discussion was held concerning the development of the regulations and what prompted the
decision to create them.
Commissioner Gilbert suggested that they should hold off for now and get John Murphy, Jim
Matteson, Staff, and others together to go over the areas of concern. Discussion was held on the
matter and it was decided to go ahead with the vote.
Commissioner Smith moved to approve and forward to the Town Council, the
Mountainside Development Regulations. Commissioner Irwin seconded the motion and it
carried with a vote of five in favor, with Commissioners Gilbert and Dysterheft voting
against.
9.
STAFF REPORT
Mr. Matteson stated that the bids to rehabilitate Woodland Road were opened last Friday at 4:00
p.m. and the apparent low bidder was Hatch Construction of Taylor, AZ. The bid came in about
$90,000 below the estimate. Discussion was held on the remainder of the award process and Mr.
Matteson stated that hopefully construction would start the first of April and take about 120 days.
