Second Reading Ordinances

3. Council Bill/Special Ordinance 4006-2018

A Special Ordinance granting a temporary modification to Section 28-3200(a) and Section 35-4218 of the Moline Code of Ordinances to delay the installation of sidewalks for property located at 4231 7th Avenue.

Explanation: Matt S. Matthews is building a new single family home at 4231 7th Avenue. He has applied for a temporary modification to the requirement to install a public sidewalk, citing topographic issues, the drainage ditch along the road, and lack of sidewalks in the neighborhood as reasons to approve a variance. Staff acknowledges that the Code of Ordinances requires two frontages of sidewalk to be installed with this development, 140’ of sidewalk along 7th Avenue and 115’ along 43rd Street. In review of the application, staff believes that the sidewalk can be installed regardless of the topography and drainage ditch. This section of road is not shown on the 5-year CIP and this is not a red water location, so the road is not scheduled to be reconstructed in the near future. Staff also identifies that there is an existing sidewalk on the opposite corner of the intersection of 43rd Street and 7th Avenue. Additional documentation attached.

First Reading Ordinances

4. Council Bill/General Ordinance 3002-2019

An Ordinance amending Chapter 35, “ZONING AND LAND DEVELOPMENT,” of the Moline Code of Ordinances, Section 35-3419, “GROUP DEVELOPMENTS,” subsection (a), “DEFINITION,” by enacting three new subsections (3), (4), and (5); and amending subsection (c) “SPECIAL USE REGULATIONS,” by repealing subsection (5) in its entirety and enacting in lieu thereof one new subsection (5) dealing with the same subject matter; by amending Section 35-5100, “OFF-STREET PARKING AND TRAFFIC CIRCULATION STANDARDS,” subsection (h)(3), “Minimum Off-Street Parking Requirements for Land Uses,” by repealing subsection (b) in its entirety and enacting in lieu thereof one new subsection (b) dealing with the same subject matter; and by amending Section 35-3401, “REGULATION OF ALLOWED USES,” Table 35-3401.1, “Permitted Land Uses,” by deleting the “P” designation under “Central Business (B-2)” and inserting in lieu thereof an “S” designation for the following types of land use: “Principal Transportation & Utility Land Uses (Sec. 35-3409),” subsection (b), “Parking, Offsite,” and “General Accessory Land Uses (Sec. 35-3417),” subsection (g), “On-Site Parking.”

Explanation: The City Council directed City staff to prepare an amendment to the Zoning Code whereby a Special Use Permit would be required in order to develop a new surface parking area or parking structure. To this end, staff drafted proposed language for a text amendment of the Zoning Code, which was reviewed and considered by the Plan Commission at its regularly scheduled meeting held on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. The proposed amendment also contains a provision whereby the demolition of a structure within the B-2 Zoning District for purposes of establishing a new parking area or otherwise, would also require the approval of a Special Use Permit. The Plan Commission unanimously recommended approval of the amendment.

5. Council Bill/General Ordinance 3003-2019

An Ordinance amending Chapter 28, “STREETS AND SIDEWALKS,” of the Moline Code of Ordinances, Section 28-2108, “DUMPSTERS,” by repealing said section in its entirety and enacting in lieu thereof one new Section 28-2108, “DUMPSTERS AND REFUSE CONTAINERS,” dealing with the same subject matter and “DIVISION 3. PERMITS,” Section 28-2300, “WHEN REQUIRED,” by repealing said section in its entirety and enacting in lieu thereof one new Section 28-2300 dealing with the same subject matter.

Explanation: Chapter 28 of the Moline Code of Ordinances was amended in 2004 to require that, among other things, the owner of a dumpster was required to acquire a permit from the building division prior to placing the dumpster in the public right-of-way. The dumpster companies found this permitting process to be onerous and burdensome and chose to not deliver dumpsters in Moline rather than acquire a permit for every dumpster. As such, that Code requirement was not enforced and dumpsters continued to be available to residents and property owners who needed to place them in the right-of-way. City staff proposes to revise the Code to require an annual $200 licensing agreement to use the public right-of-way in lieu of a permit for each dumpster placement. The licensing agreement will include insurance and indemnification requirements to protect the City. The current dumpster safety requirements will remain as protective measures to the traveling public.

Explanation: Request to prohibit parking on the south side of 46th Avenue Drive in front of Heritage Woods. At the February 5, 2019, Traffic Engineering Committee meeting, the Committee reviewed the request and recommends approval.
