Tooele City approves layout for subdivision

Owner wants to build on land zoned for up to 16 multi-family dwellings per acre 

The Tooele City Council discussed an amendment to a previously approved subdivision plat for 32.24 acres of land at 400 W. 1000 North in Tooele during their Sept. 2 meeting.

Charles Akerlow, representing Zenith Tooele LLC, applied for the subdivision amendment.

Originally the property was subdivided into five lots ranging from 5.2 to 7.5 acres for future ownership and development.

Zenith Tooele now wants to rearrange some of the lot lines. The 32.24 acres will be reconfigured, but it will still have five lots. The largest lot will be 11 acres. The smallest lot will be 2 acres.

The request for the subdivision plat amendment was discussed by the Tooele City Planning Commission previously and they voted to forward a positive recommendation to the City Council.

Zenith Tooele wants to build on the property.

The property is zoned MR-16, multi-family residential with up to 16 units per acre, according to Jim Bolser, Tooele City community development director.

The purpose of the MR-16 classification is to provide an environment and opportunities for high density residential uses, including single-family detached and attached residential units, apartments, condominiums, and townhouses, according to Bolser.

Properties to the north, west, and east of the Zenith Tooele property are zoned as R1-7 residential. Properties to the south are zoned neighborhood commercial.

All of the surrounding properties are currently vacant, undeveloped land, Bolser said.

This subdivision plat amendment also includes dedication of Franks Drive and Berra Boulevard right-of-way as a public street, according to Bolser.

During the meeting, a vote was taken and all of the members of the city council voted to approve the request except for Scott Wardle, chairman, who was absent from the meeting.
