CITY OF CHUBBUCK, IDAHO <br />ORDINANCE NO. <br />AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF CHUBBUCK, IDAHO, AMENDING SECTION <br />16.12.025, "ACCESS MANAGEMENT", TO CLARIFY THE APPLICATION OF THE <br />GUIDELINES TO ALL FUNCTIONAL STREET CLASSIFICATIONS, NOT LIMITED <br />TO COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS AND MULTI -UNIT RESIDENTIAL <br />DEVELOPMENTS OF MORE THAN 100 UNITS; REPEALING PRIOR <br />CONFLICTING ORDINANCES; PROVIDING FOR THE SEVERABILITY OF THE <br />PROVISIONS OF THIS ORDINANCE; PROVIDING THAT ALL OTHER SECTIONS <br />OF CHAPTER 16.12 NOT AMENDED SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT; AND <br />PROVIDING WHEN THIS ORDINANCE IS EFFECTIVE. <br />BE IT ORDAINED BY THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF <br />CHUBBUCK, IDAHO: <br />Section 1. Facts. The City has periodically adopted and implemented the Access <br />Management Guidelines promulgated by the Bannock Transportation Planning Organization <br />from time to time. In a recent court action, the court determined the City had applied those <br />Guidelines in a residential area that did not meet the definitions referenced in the Guidelines as <br />"commercial development and multi -unit residential developments in excess of 100 units." The <br />Council finds that although this restriction is set forth in the Guidelines, it will limit the <br />effectiveness of such Guidelines to the City as it develops in the future. Specifically the Council <br />finds that residential area such as along Whitaker Road between Siphon And Chubbuck Roads, <br />while residential, will be a corridor in the future for the anticipated commercial developments <br />that will occur on Chubbuck Road and on Siphon Road, particularly after the anticipated Siphon <br />Road interchange with Interstate 86 is built at some future date. Corridors between such <br />commercial areas, particularly to provide alternate routs to major arterials such as Chubbuck <br />Road and Hiline Road will promote more efficient and orderly movement of traffic and reduce <br />congestion. Accordingly the Council finds is in the interest of the City to apply the Guidelines <br />in Chubbuck to all areas and not be limited to "commercial development and multi -unit <br />residential developments in excess of 100 units." <br />Section 2. Amended Section 16.12.025. Section 16.12.025 of the Chubbuck Municipal <br />Code shall be amended as follows: <br />16.12.025: ACCESS MANAGEMENT: All streets and roadways shall be designed to <br />conform with the "Access Management Guidelines" (hereinafter "guidelines") as adopted by <br />the Bannock Transportation Planning Organization on February 13, 2012, and as may from <br />time to time be amended; provided however notwithstanding any language to the contrary in <br />the Guidelines. within the Citv- Table 3a "General Prnvkinn.,, of A,7.c.rtc,;Z MRnncr(-.m,­.nt <br />Streets: shall be applied to all areas, not just in a commercial or multi -unit residential <br />developments of more than one hundred (100) units.
