CITY OF LAKEVILLE <br />CITY COUNCIL WORK SESSION MINUTES <br />April 22, 2019 <br />1. Mayor Anderson called the meeting to order at 6:02 p.m. in the Marion Conference Room. <br />Members present: Mayor Anderson, Council Members Hellier, Lee, Volk, and Wheeler <br />Members absent: None <br />Staff present: Justin Miller, City Administrator; Allyn Kuennen, Assistant City Administrator; <br />Paul Oehme, Public Works Director; Jerilyn Erickson, Finance Director; Mike Meyer, Fire Chief; <br />Tamara Wallace, Deputy Clerk <br />2. Citizen Comments <br />There were no citizen comments regarding non -agenda items. <br />3. Exterior Building Materials Requirements <br />Staff has been made aware that the construction of the new Hy -Vee Fast & Fresh includes the use <br />of a product, thin brick, which is not permitted under the City's Zoning Ordinance for non- <br />residential buildings. Though the City approved the wall section plan sheet with the use of <br />regular course brick as required by City code, ultimately plan sheets submitted with the building <br />permit application show the use of the thin brick material. This construction is not consistent <br />with initial wall section plans submitted and approved by the Council. <br />The walls at the Hy -Vee Fast & Fresh have been completely installed. Staff has preliminarily <br />worked with the project architect and City Attorney to present three possible solutions: install <br />full brick on the front of the existing fagade, Hy -Vee could apply for a conditional use permit, or <br />finally the City could amend the Zoning Ordinance to allow the use of thin brick. Staff has <br />indicated there have been past, and likely will be future, requests for the use of the thin brick <br />product on other non-residential buildings. Staff showed a video from Fullerton Companies' <br />website to demonstrate how the product is applied. <br />Phil Hoey, Director of Real Estate for Hyvee <br />Indicated that Hy -vee has been using the thin brick system for many years on its stores; and as <br />long-term owners (even in scenarios in which they lease a property back), they are liable for <br />maintenance of materials, appearance, and durability of the building/ product. Mr. Hoey also <br />added that the product itself is actual brick material, and therefore believed it would pass City <br />Zoning Ordinance requirements. <br />
