….In other business, the commission approved an ordinance revising the city’s requirements for site plan review.
Under the new ordinance, developments of 10 or more residential units, 10,000 square feet of commercial space, 10,000 or more square feet of outdoor storage or 20 or more parking spaces will be subject to site plan review.
Assistant Planning Director Mathieu Menard said Livingston is seeing some large-scale developments, especially condo developments, that are having downstream impacts on city services such as street maintenance and stormwater.
Under this ordinance, he said, city staff will be able to review the development plans and look at those impacts.
Commissioner Melissa Nootz said the ordinance provides a way for city staff to make sure new developments are reflecting the values of the community.
The commission approved a $244,720 contract with Western Municipal Construction contract and a $28,000 contract with TD&H Engineering for work on upgrading the sewer main on a 500 feet long stretch of Fifth Street from an 8-inch main to an 18-inch main.
Kardoes said sewer flows from northside developments into key areas where this project would take place.
Holmes said depending on weather the project could take less than two months.
The project will be funded by impact fees and the sewer maintenance fund, Holmes said.
“Welcome to construction season,” Holmes said.>
