Page 2 Garden City Telegram Saturday, November 26, 1977 Commissioners Okay Airport Area Zoning City Commissioners and County Commissioners this week adopted airport zoning to restrict development around the city airport to that which will be compatible with the future growth of the municipal facility. The action came after the end of the public hearing for the zoning proposals which were first discussed at a public hearing two weeks ago. As a result of the discussion, the plan was modified to include less land than proposed by the city's consultants. Several people were at both sessions of the public hearing to express opposition to the zoning recommendations. Recommendations were part of a masterplan study of the airport being conducted by Burns and McDonnell, consulting engineers from Kansas City, Mo. The city and county commissioners were meeting in a joint session at the request of the city. Reason given for the joint session was that while the airport belongs to the city, the surrounding land is still within the jurisdiction of the county in all other matters. Steve Coffman, representative of Burns and McDonnell, fielded questions of the commissioners and the public at the hearing. Dick Fankhauser, spokesman for the Airport Advisory Board, told the commissioners that the advisory board unanimously recommended adoption of the zoning plan in its original form, but the commission modified it before its adoption. The modifications brought the boundaries of the transition or "controlled development" zone in closer to the airport than had been proposed on the secondary runway — the northwest- southeast one. The transition zone still extends about two miles off each end of that runway. No change was made to the proposed north-south runway transition zone. That is the primary runway at the airport. Transition zone extensions on the primary runway are more than three miles from the end of the existing runway. The commissioners and members of the public at the hearing discussed several alternatives before the commissioners voted to adopt the final transition zone boundaries. A smaller, more restrictive zone was adopted as proposed by Burns and McDonnell. It is called the clear zone and means just that. No building or construction of any kind is permitted in the clear zone. It extends little more than a mile past the end of any of the airport runways. While the vote to adopt the amended transition zones was a unanimous one, the vote to adopt the clear zone as proposed was not. County Commissioner Mike Merrill, without giving any reason, abstained from the adoption of the restrictive clear zone, making the vote 6-0 with one abstention. County Commission Chairman Greg Shaw was not at the joint meeting. No concession was made for Donner Estates, a platted but undeveloped residential subdivision within the transition zone. The transition zone would normally prohibit residential developments, according to the material presented. At the recommendation of Coffman, the commissioners today...

Main FRANK'S STEAMWAY CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Frank Musquiz Call 276 3737 decided to include Donner Estates in the transition zone, forcing the developer or potential builders to request a variance from the nonresidential zoning of the subdivision. They indicated that such variances would be granted but by making the owner come before the commission to get it, the city would be sure that the owner would be aware of the possible noise problems inherent in living close to an airport — and one that is expected to grow in the future. In other business, the City Commission: — Added several new streets to the list of through- streets in the city. They included: Harding, from Fleming to Campus; Campus, from US50 to Kansas and from Kansas to Mary; Fleming, from Mary to the north city limits; Mary, from US83 east to the city limits; Main, from Kansas to Mary and from Mary to Bellevue; 3rd, from Mary to the north city limits; 8th, from Mary to the north city limits; and Johnson, from 3rd to Center. — Changed the name of Central Street (on the east side of the Pancake Inn) to Bancroft Street in order to maintain a continuity in Bancroft as it runs north and south. — Approved the construction of Harding from its current east deadend cul-de- sac on to the east to Campus Drive. The project will include a bridge across the city drainage ditch and the total project cost is not to exceed $29,930.40. It is to be assessed to the city at large and not to a special assessment benefit district. — Approved a temporary drainage easement across the southeast corner of the cemetery property to the Finney County Water Users Association so that the ditch just south of the cemetery can be moved to the north. — Held action on a request to review the water main availability charge to larger- than-normal tracts of land in the city. — Agreed to exchange the reported $7,000 in capital improvements done at the city airport by Garden Air, Inc., for the interst which was due on a past-due bill owed the city by Garden Air. — Authorized contracts for street improvement in Indian Hills Subdivision, Plaza West Subdivision, West Acres Subdivision and on Anderson south from Fulton. — Re-appointed Bob Law and Dick Fankhauser to the Airport Advisory Board. Their three year terms on the board would expire next month. — Instructed Mrs. Seles Padilla to return with a request for $540 in funds for the Oklahoma Rural Opportunities program, a federally funded migrant and seasonal farm worker aid program, until after the federal funding is approved for the programs with which she sought city help. — Approved special assessments for street improvements and parking lot costs as heard Wednesday morning at a public hearing on the matter with corrections on some of the assessments. One change is that one bill was sent to a homeowner in the area when it should have been sent to USD 457 because the land against which it was assessed is that on which Jennie Wilson School sits. The other correction is that assessments on the Harding and Fleming improvements to landowners other than Glen Woods will all be lowered because Woods land-holding were miscalculated and his- bill will be a bigger portion of the costs of both those projects. — Voted unanimously to reset a date for the proposed bond election for a new city hall after further financial arrangements are proposed for funding the proposal. — Referred a request from the Finney County Parks, Fish and Game Association for land on which to have a trap shooting range to the Golf Advisory Board for their consideration.
