Church With Walk-up Food Service, Anaya's Market and More on Snyderville Planning Commission Agenda
The Snyderville Basin Planning Commission meets at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to review code amendments on parking requirements before holding three public hearings on Silver Creek developments including a new church, a new location for the popular Latin market Anaya’s and a new 125-lot subdivision.
Applicant Jorge Hernandez is requesting approval for the 7,200 square foot church to be located on Lot 13 of the Silver Creek subdivision – in the community commercial zone.
The applicant is also applying for a restaurant component within the church – which is allowed in the zone but requires a conditional use permit.
The restaurant is looking for an all-outdoors seating scheme where food would be served to customers through a walk-up service window. The restaurant’s operating hours would coincide with the general church activities and be open 3 days a week: Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Fridays from 5 to 10 p.m.
According to the staff report, the proposed uses are compliant with the code and wouldn’t increase traffic beyond what’s expected of a permitted use, nor would the uses increase the demand for parking or intensify noise or lighting issues. The staff is recommending approval.
A second public hearing will be held on the application for the Anaya’s Market Complex for a low impact permit, a conditional use permit, and a plat amendment.
The applicant is requesting approval for a 28,500 square foot, two-building, mixed-use project to be located on Lots 5 and 6 in Silver Creek on the southern portion of the property.
This would be a 2-story building with a ground floor footprint of just over 12,000 square feet that will be used for a full-service market and restaurant. The 1,900 square feet second floor would be used for two residential units.
The second building on the northern portion of the parcel is also a 2-story building with a ground floor footprint of 7,200 square feet. This would be used for small-scale retail and office uses. The second floor would be used for residential housing. Eight of the ten units would be used for employee or affordable housing.
At their March meeting, the planning commissioners expressed concern over allowing this lot combination to take place because of the potential for another less appropriate use to take place. To mitigate that concern, the applicant will include a plat note that would limit the footprint of any one building to 13,000 square feet.
A third agenda item is also a public hearing for a 125-lot subdivision on 57 acres, called Elk Springs, part of the Silver Creek Village Center south of Interstate 80.
