Commission OKs replat request, rezoning withdrawal

By Sheryl Roadcap -

SIDNEY — The Sidney City Planning Commission voted to accept a replat request to create one new lot out of three lots, as well as a rezoning application withdrawal request, Monday.

The request of Britt Havenar, on behalf of Larry Courtney, for the replat of three lots to create one new lot on the north side of Doorley Place, to the east of Chestnut Avenue, is for the purpose of building a home in the single family residential district.

Community Development Director Barbara Dulworth told the commission the resulting, undeveloped lot will have an area of 18,382-square-feet. There are no new utility easements included with the replat. She said the property is adjacent to an alley right of way on one side and a railroad property on the other side, and that utilities are already provided for the property. The lot meets all zoning code and subdivision regulations requirements for lot size, width and maximum lot depth-to-width requirements, she said.

The recommendation for the replat approval will be given Sidney City Council at its next regular meeting on May 29.

Also, a public hearing was set for the rezoning of 215 W. Court St. from a community business district to the court square business district, but Dulworth said the city received notice applicants Steven Mackenback and Steven Hunter wanted to withdraw their request. However, since the hearing had already been published in the newspaper, it remained part of the commission’s agenda on Monday.

Dulworth said city staff supported the withdrawal request. She told the commission the decision to withdrawal the application dealt with the buyer’s plans for the property, which may not have been the same as the applicants’, when asked about the reason for the withdrawal.

The commission voted to accept the withdrawal of the rezoning application.
