CUP renewals recommended

Childcare, sign on agenda

If you're five minutes late, you might miss it.

Today, the Kingman Planning and Zoning Commission is set to give one-year reviews for two conditional use permits and then call it a night. City staff recommends both permits remain active.

First, the commission will look at the CUP issued April 5, 2011, for an in-home childcare facility located on Los Angeles Street. The facility is situated within a 1,620 square-foot home that has had its garage converted into a playroom, in an area zoned R1-6, single-family residential. Since there are no other childcare facilities within 600 feet of the home, the facility meets zoning-ordinance criteria.

The city has received no written complaints from surrounding property owners, and the facility is in compliance with the Kingman Fire Department and the Arizona Department of Health Services. Planning staff recommends continuation of the CUP.

Next, the commission plans to review the CUP for an off-premises billboard located at 2501 E. Beverly Ave.

According to the agenda, the property - which is next to Mother Road Harley-Davidson - is zoned C-3, commercial and service business. It includes an existing billboard but is otherwise undeveloped.

When the CUP was approved, the applicant needed to meet several requirements. For instance, there needs to be a 10-foot clearance (vertical and horizontal) between the sign and the location's overhead power line.

City staff found that the sign meets the city's off-premises sign requirements, and therefore, recommends continuation of the CUP.

Planning and Zoning meets at 6 tonight at the City Complex, 310 N. Fourth St.
