Walter Scott Building developers won’t have deferred cash payments for off-street parking.
Ethan Hunter of Zarkor Group of Companies submitted a request to city council to defer a portion of the off-street parking requirement cash-in-lieu for the development of the Walter Scott Building.
The city received an application for a development and building permit for the construction of 40 rental units for the building, but the off-street parking requirement needs to be fulfilled first. The requirement is 20 spaces at a cost of $5,000 per space or $100,000.
Hunter requested agreeing on a payment plan to issue an initial payment of $25,000 prior to issuing the permits, $25,000 on Jan. 15, 2014, and the final payment due before occupancy.
Council denied the request at Monday’s council meeting, as it would set a precedent for the payment of exempted spaces.
Other items discussed at Monday’s meeting:
• Coun. Brian Swanson gave a notice of a motion he will make at the next council meeting. His motion is that “any negotiations with respect to resolution 651 (b) and 652 dated Sept. 17, 2012, be discontinued and the matter closed with no further actions.”
