The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a working lunch session and regular meeting open to the public on Thursday, May 4, 2017 in the Board of Supervisors Room, located in the County Annex Building, 75 W. Cleveland Street in St. Johns. The working lunch session will begin at 12:00 pm, and the regular meeting will begin at 1:00pm.  

The agenda for the working lunch session and regular meeting is as follows:


Working Lunch Session

  1. Discussion of the Comprehensive Plan and update on community meetings to be held around the county.
  2. Discussion about amending or adding to the Zoning Ordinance or Building Code. Specifically, discussion on these topics:
  3. Changing building codes to allow for tiny houses less than 400 square feet. Apache County has no zoning laws that prohibit tiny houses. Therefore this is a discussion of modifying building codes for tiny houses.
  4. Discussion of a proposed policy on how the Commission would respond to cases that involve false, misleading, or fraudulent information before, during, and after an application has been decided.


Regular Meeting

Item #1           Call to Order.

Item #2           Roll Call/Determination of a Quorum

Item #3           Approval of the minutes from the April 6, 2017 meeting   Approved

Item #4           Public hearing, consideration and possible recommendation for approval allowing Sun State Towers to construct a 195 foot self-support wireless communications tower designed to support additional wireless carriers. Property is located near U.S. 60 and the Refuse Transfer Station, Vernon, AZ. A.P.N 106-39-006.  Approved

Item #5           Public hearing, consideration and possible recommendation for approval of amended versions of the Subdivision Ordinance Section 10 Reversion to Acreage and the Zoning Ordinance Section 740 Lot Combination. The Reversion to Acreage amendment would create three separate processes: minor plat amendment, major plat amendment, and abandonment—all of which apply only to lots within subdivisions. The Lot Combination amendment would simplify the procedures and only applies to parcels outside of a subdivision.  Tabled
