Chairman Marley continued the Public Hearing for Variance #V15-01 at 7:07:33 PM. City Planner Gaudette presented a thorough review of the new information the applicant provided, with a recommendation of denial to City Council.

The applicant Vladan Milosavljevic summarized his request for this Variance. Mr. Milosavljevic objected to taking public comment tonight. He stated that the Commission should only be able to vote on the Variance and not hear any more public comments. He explained he read on the MRSC website that a Public Hearing can only be continued if there are too many people in attendance on the original Public Hearing date. He feels at the March 16, 2016 meeting there were not too many people there to cause the hearing to be continued.

City Attorney Kaseguma explained that the Planning Commission can continue a Public Hearing for any reason the Planning Commission deems appropriate.

Mary Ann Baltich of Brier, asked what is the process if the Variance is approved, will there be anymore public hearings on the usage of the building.

The Public Hearing was closed at 7:22:23 PM.

Commissioner DeMorett made a MOTION to recommend denial of Variance #V15-01 because it does not meet all eights points of the required criteria outlined on the Brier Municipal Code, and asked for City staff to prepare and present to the Commission a written recommendation based upon the vote for consideration by the Commission at its regular meeting on April 20, 2016. Commissioner Thorpe SECONDED. Motion carried.



Commissioner Rosman made a MOTION to adjourn. Commissioner Scott SECONDED. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:27:38 PM.
