A total of 15 new homes will soon be built in north Sunnyside, thanks to Sunnyside City Council approving a final plat for a proposed subdivision at a public hearing held last night, Monday.
No comments were received from the public at the hearing.
The Catholic Charities Housing Services project is located on the south side of Beckner Road and on the east side of McClain Drive. The property is currently zoned R-2, which allows for the development of single family homes.
Under the direction of Catholic Charities Housing Services, 15 new homes will be built on approximately 1.69 acres. The current zoning regulations allow for up to nine homes to be built on one acre.
The lots will range from 4,609 square feet in size to 7,231 square feet. Sunnyside City Planner Jamey Ayling told the council that this is in compliance, as the minimum allowable size is 4,300 square feet. All of the proposed parcels meet the city's dimensional standards that were set forth in the municipal code.
The city council held two more public hearings at last night's council meeting. There were no public comments at either of the two public hearings.
Both hearings dealt with the city vacating their right-of-way rights for small sections of Midvale Road and Swan Road.
The portion of Midvale Road subject to vacation is a strip of right-of-way 10 feet west of the road, which begins approximately 1,980 feet south of Emerald Road on the west side of Midvale Road extending south approximately 665 feet.
The Swan Road section to be vacated is an 18-foot patch of land west of Swan Road between Grandview Avenue and Cherry Avenue.
Council approved both street vacations.
