       Planning Commission Recommendation: Betty Retzer made a motion recommending approval of the Special Use Permit for Martin Wind Enterprises based on the findings A through -D and subject to the 16 conditions recommended by staff.  Larry Wahrenbrock seconded and the motion passed by a unanimous vote of those members present

  1. CALVARY CHAPEL DAYTON VALLEY ZONE CHANGE (for possible action) – Request to change the zoning from M-1 (General Industrial) to C-2 (General Commercial) to allow a preschool facility within an existing church on an approximately 3.00 total acre parcel; located at 28 Enterprise Way, Dayton (APN 16-402-12) PLZ-14-0013

       Planning Commission Recommendation: Larry Wahrenbrock made a motion recommending denial of the Zone Change for Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley, after finding that a) The proposed zoning is not in substantial compliance with the adopted Master Plan land use map, b) The proposed zoning does not promote development that is commensurate with the currently permitted uses of the surrounding land and will have detrimental impacts to other properties in the vicinity, c) The proposed zoning will adversely impact the public health, safety and welfare, and d) The proposed zoning does not promote the protection of the existing neighborhood. Harold Ritter seconded the motion. Before the vote, Mr. Wahrenbrock stated that the decision to move for denial was a very difficult decision but he believes the current zoning codes that allow a church in the Industrial zoned district were a mistake.  Chairman Davies agreed with Mr. Wahrenbrock and said he hopes that this situation can be worked out when the new zoning codes are adopted so that this church can accomplish what they need to do.  He said though at this point he doesn’t see any other option but to recommend denial based on the current zoning codes.  There being no further discussion the motion passed by a unanimous vote of those members present (5 Ayes; 0 Nays; 2 Absent – Paul Lanning and Mike Hardcastle)
