CURRENT ZONE: District "A" (Single Family Dwelling).

Ms. Few reported that The City of Alamogordo and the Alamogordo Municipal Board of Education own adjacent tracts of land in Section 29, T16S, R10E, NMPM, within the City of Alamogordo. Approval of the final plat of GRADY SUBDIVISION for 98.949 acres has been requested. Subject subdivision is for the division of the properties into four (4) lots which will allow dedication of a drainage detention basin and channel, which will be developed by the Corps of Engineers. The property, 500 S. Canyon Road and 1200 E. First Street, is zoned "A" (Single Family Dwelling) District. The 1971 Master Plan designates this property to be developed as low density residential and as public, parks and recreation. Through alleys, having a width of twenty feet (20'), are required in each block. Variances to this requirement have been approved by the Alamogordo City Commission for other subdivisions in the area. Addresses for each lot are required on the plat. Addresses for each lot have been provided to the consulting engineer under separate cover and are required on the plat prior to filing. A drainage report sealed by a professional engineer, registered in the State of New Mexico, which shall include calculations for existing (pre-developed) and developed conditions. Drainage facilities shall be designed for the 50 year, 24 hour storm event under developed conditions and evaluated for failure and/or property damage during the 100 year, 24 hour storm event. On-site ponding is permitted on lots over ten thousand square feet (10,000 sf) in size and the drainage area is confined to subject lot. If on-lot ponding is technically infeasible, drainage or ponding in a common retention/detention pond may be permitted. Design calculations shall be in accordance with the appropriate USDA/SCS method. Proposed Lot 2 is the location of Mountain View Middle School and the only lot in the subdivision that is to have any building located on it. Lots 1 and 4 are athletic fields and Lot 3 will be a drainage basin. Therefore, approval of a variance from the drainage report requirement is supported. Public land, at a maximum of five percent (5%) of the total area of the subdivision, exclusive of streets and alleys, is required to be dedicated to the City of Alamogordo 27.594 acres (Lot 3) is to be a drainage basin which represents a dedication of 27.9% of the net acreage of the subdivision. Staff recommends approval of the preliminary and final plat of GRADY SUBDIVISION with the requested variances (on alleys, and on drainage report requirements).

Mr. Dale Emrich of the City of Alamogordo GIS/Engineering Department was available to answer questions for the petition. Commissioner Martin asked if the drainage basin would be put where the ball fields are now. Mr. Emrich answered that the ball fields will move and shift from where they are now to the West. The L-shaped tract will pretty much follow down the East side of the subdivision, then take a left and head down the South side. Commissioner Dardin made a motion "TO RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF PRELIMINARY AND FINAL PLAT OF GRADY SUBDIVISION WITH REQUESTED VARIANCES." Commissioner Martin seconded the motion. All voted "AYE", passing the motion by a vote of 4-0-0.

5. MISCELLANEOUS.

CASE: M-01-0295(A). PETITIONER: CMT, LLC, owner. REQUEST: Approval of a revision to the site plan of Desert Paradise Mobile Home Park to re-dimension 106 spaces into 103 spaces. TOTAL AREA: ±16.9 acres. LOCATION: 1090 U.S. Highway 70 W. CURRENT LEGAL: Lot 2, Price Subdivision. CURRENT ZONE: District "G-2" (Trailer Park).

Ms. Few reported that CMT, LLC, owns Lot 2, Price Subdivision. Pursuant to Article 25-02, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Alamogordo, New Mexico, an amendment to the development plan for the Desert Paradise Mobile Home Park has been submitted for review and approval. The property, 1090 U.S. Highway 70 W, is zoned "G-2" (Trailer Court) District, which allows a mobile home park with a detailed development plan approved by the City Commission. The 1971 Master Plan designates this property to be developed as light industrial. The property is located within the jurisdiction of the Alamogordo Municipal Airport Hazards Zoning Ordinance. An Avigation Easement limiting vertical development was executed in 1997, with the rezoning, which is adequate. As proposed, permission is being requested to consolidate certain lots from the plan approved in 1997 by the City. Specifically, Space 14 and 15 are being combined into one space to allow the placement of a "community clubhouse". Spaces 87, 88, 89 and 90 are being re-dimensioned into three (3) spaces, to be referenced as 87, 88 and 89. Spaces number 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are being reworked and combined into 4 spaces numbered 2, 3, 4, and 5. The net effect of the request is to reduce the total number of approved spaces from 106 to 103. The planning and zoning commission shall determine if the proposed park conforms to this and other applicable ordinances and shall recommend to the city commission approval or denial of the development plan. The planning and zoning commission may also recommend such conditions as may be necessary to promote safety, appearance and proper land use. Mobile home parks shall be developed only in accordance with the terms of approval by the city commission of a development plan. Staff recommends approval of Case M-01-0295(A) as the amendments, as proposed, will decrease the density of the park.

Mr. Mike Hooser was available to answer questions for the petition. No questions were necessary from the Planning Commission. Commissioner Dardin made a motion "TO RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF CASE M-01-0295(A) AS RECOMMENDED BY STAFF". Seconded by Commissioner Martin. All voted "AYE", passing the motion by a vote of 4-0-0.
