PRESENTATION

Vice Chairman Falco turned the meeting over to Boone County Presiding Commissioner Don Stamper to make a presentation to outgoing Chairman Keith Schnarre. Commissioner Stamper expressed his appreciation to the Commission for allowing him time to make a presentation to Keith Schnare, who was retiring after 12 years of service on the Planning and Zoning Commission.

He said Keith’s leadership not only occurred at the P & Z table, but he has always given advice and leadership. People who sit in the Chairman’s chair are doing the best job they can for Boone County. On behalf of the citizens of Boone County and the Boone County Commission he presented Keith Schnarre with a plaque and gavel. It said, "Keith Schnarre May 1985 to June 19, 1997 in recognition of your dedicated public service to the Boone County Planning and Zoning Commission.."

Commissioner Stamper said that in seven years working with county government he had found Mr. Schnarre to be fair, a fine leader and someone who always brought to this table or any other, the interest of the citizens of Boone County. To do that with consistency and to do it with meaning, in a challenge. He had truly served, along with the Planning & Zoning Commission and led that commission on many occasions to a better position. "On behalf of Boone County, we "THANK YOU".

Keith Schnarre said this was the first time he remembered a member of County Commission coming down and giving a Planning & Zoning Commissioner a plaque, so it really meant a lot to him. He enjoyed working for the County, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the County Commission. He said it was time to move on and let someone else have a chance. He said he thought that everyone of the P&Z had the citizens at heart.

PLAT REVIEWS

Country Squire Subdivision, preliminary plat. R-M. S26-T49N-R13W.

Gene and Yoko Smith, owners. James V. Patchett, surveyor.

Bill Florea gave staff report stating that the proposed sixteen lot plat is located on Country Squire Court immediately to the west of Creasy Springs Road approximately three quarters of one mile north of the Columbia city limits. There are eleven existing buildings on the property, ten of which are residential structures, the remaining building is a maintenance shed. Approval of this plat, as proposed, would create an individual lot for each of the existing buildings and five additional building lots. The total area contained within the plat is 5.59 acres. The zoning is R-M, Moderate Density Residential. Water is provided by the City of Columbia through an existing six inch water line on the south side of Country Squire Court. There is an existing fire hydrant at the northwest corner of proposed lot 15 which is within the required five hundred feet of all lots and existing structures within the plat. Sewer service is proposed to be provided by an existing central collection system. The system is owned and operated by the property owner. Boone County regulations require subdivision to be served by a central sewer system subject to ownership or maintenance contract by a public agency having jurisdiction to provide wastewater treatment facilities, in this case Boone County Regional Sewer District. The district is willing to take over operation and maintenance of the system at such time as it is brought into compliance with current regulations and standards. Boone County subdivision regulations require the right of way to be stubbed out to adjacent undivided land. No such stub out is proposed. A power transmission line easement crosses the west end of the plat. The width of the easement is defined as being fifty feet on either side of the centerline of the electric transmission line. The easement restricts the building area on lots 1 and 15. The building area of the lot one is 2600 square feet, and 1900 square feet for lot 15. Both building are triangular in shape which is an additional constraint on building construction. The applicants have submitted a request for a waiver of the requirement to provide a traffic study.

This proposal scored eighty points on the Point Rating System.

Recommendation: Staff recommends granting preliminary approval of the plat and waiver of the traffic study subject to the following conditions: 1) Provide a right of way stub out to adjacent undivided land, 2) Improve the central sewer system to meet current regulations and standards and transfer ownership of the system to Boone County Regional Sewer District.

Jim Patchett, surveyor for Country Squire Subdivision. He said it started out as a mobile home park and the subdivision evolved. Streets have been accepted by the county, right-of-way has been dedicated, most all of the lots have been built on. The only thing missing is the platted lot lines. The property does have access off of the south off of Sanderson Road.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked how did it get this far without being platted before? Mr. Patchett, said that because of the zoning and being operated as a mobile home park. Director Shawver said there had been a mobile home park on the property that predated planning and zoning (non-conforming use or grandfathered rights). In 1981, Steve Juenger purchased it and had it rezoned from R-S to R-M to expand the mobile home park to 35 units. This also required a Conditional Use Permit, which was granted. Under the old subdivision and zoning regulations, the property is zoned R-M. The zoning regulations allowed multiple dwellings to be built on one (1) lot. This conflict was resolved when the Subdivision Regulations were resolved in 1995. Today it would require a multi-use plat to develop this many structures.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked if a stub across lot 15 would satisfy the staff’s interest? Director Shawver said that would allow access to adjoining property; 15 would be acceptable. Mr. Smith does own all the surrounding property and this is close to the middle.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick made and Commissioner Falco seconded a motion to approve Country Squire Subdivision, preliminary plat. R-M. S26-T49N-R13W. with staff conditions:

1) Provide a right of way stub out to adjacent undivided land,

2) Improve the central sewer system to meet current regulations and standards

and transfer ownership of the system to Boone County Regional Sewer District.

University Estates Plat 4. R-S. S9-T47N-R13W. Jeffrey D. Anderson Trust, owner.

Bill R. Crockett, surveyor.

Bill Florea gave staff report that this proposed one lot plat is located at the end of Campus Drive, which is west of Old Plank Road, south of Route K, approximately one and one half miles west southwest of the Columbia city limits. The purpose of the subdivision is to consolidate three previously platted lots into one building lot. The existing lots were vacated by Boone County Commission Order 216-97. The zoning is R-S, Single Family Residential. Water service will be provided by Consolidated Public Water District Number 1. Prior to establishing residential service the Water District will require completion of three conditions. One, extension of an existing two inch water line, from its present terminus at the southeast property corner of lot 24 University Estates Plat #2, four hundred twenty eight feet to the south property line of proposed lot 40. Two, obtain a 20 foot utility easement from the owner of lot 24 along the north and west right of way lines of Campus Drive. Three, provide a twenty foot wide by fifty foot deep utility easement extending into proposed lot 40. The easement on lot 40 will be shown on the plat. Sanitary sewer service will be retained from the previous lots. The applicant has requested a waiver from the requirement to provide a traffic analysis. This proposal scored 69 on the point rating system.

Staff recommends approval of the waiver request and the subdivision request.

Neil Cady with Crockett Engineering was present for any questions.

Commissioner Abart made and Commissioner Grace seconded motion to approve University Estates Plat 4. R-S. S9-T47N-R13W. with staff conditions:

Replat of lot 98, Waters Edge Estates Block IV. R-M. S3-T48N-R12W.

Dan Hagan, owner. James W. Brush, surveyor.

Bill Florea gave staff report stating that this proposed one lot plat is located in the southwest corner of the Waters Edge Estates subdivision Block IV. Waters Edge Estates is located immediately north of Clark Lane and west of Lake of the Woods Road. The property abuts the Columbia city limits along the west property line. The purpose of the subdivision is to incorporate a portion of the vacated right of way of Waterfront Drive South into lot 98. Approval of the subdivision will not result in the creation of any new building lots. The property contained within the subdivision comprises seventy three/one-hundredths of one acre. The zoning is R-M, Residential Medium Density. Water service is provided by the City of Columbia. Sanitary sewer service is provided by Boone County Regional Sewer District. The applicant has requested a waiver of the requirement to provide a traffic analysis. This proposal scored eighty two (82) points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval of the subdivision and waiver request.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked staff that since the engineer was not present, what about the book and page on the document being blank? Director Shawver stated that the vacation does not take effect until the replatting is done.

Commissioner Fugit made and Commissioner Kirkpatrick seconded motion to approve replat of lot 98, Waters Edge Estates Block IV. R-M. S3-T48N-R12W.

Whitmarsh Subdivision. A-R. S10-T49N-R13W.

Larry and Rosemary Whitmarsh, owners. Donald E. Bormann, surveyor.

 

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this three lot plat is located on the east side of O’Neal Road, about 1650 feet south of the intersection of Akeman Bridge Road and O’Neal Road. The site is 4 miles north of the Columbia municipal limits. The area being subdivided contains 17.63 acres. This property is currently zoned A-R (agriculture-residential), as is all the surrounding property. These zonings are also the original 1973 zonings. The site falls within the Public Water District # 7 service area, and there is a 2 & 1/2" waterline along the east side of the road. This information was obtained by phone conversation with water district personnel. Sewage treatment will be on site, the appropriate area is designated on a separate document in the file. The owner has requested a waiver of the requirement for traffic analysis and cost benefit analysis for sewage treatment. This plat has 23 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval along with granting of the waivers for cost benefit analysis for sewage treatment and traffic analysis.

Don Bormann, surveyor approached the Commission. He said this is transfer between adjacent property owners. For several reasons they had to do a plat to accomplish what they wanted to do. The front track is an 88 acre tract and the back acreage is a 11 acre tract. The trailer is where their daughter is located. The Whitmarsh’s own both of the tracts. They have a contract to sell a portion to the neighbor to the south. There are no plans to develop it, but he wanted to survey it because there had been some problems in the area with the fences not following the property lines. Two lots needed to be created, one for the house and one for the trailer. Once the daughter moves off, the lot for the trailer would be split but in order to accomplish everything it needed to be surveyed. A warranty deed accomplished the problems regarding the encroachments, that was excluded from the subdivision as a transfer to a neighboring land owner.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick made and Commissioner Sloan second motion to approve Whitmarsh Subdivision. A-R. S10-T49N-R13W with the conditions stipulated by the staff .

Cooper Creek Subdivision, preliminary plat. A-2. S15-T49N-R12W.

Chad and Karen Sayre and Donald and Carol Sayre, owners. Nathan Lacy, surveyor.

Thad Yonke gave staff report stating that this nine lot plat is located on the south side of State Highway HH across from Lake Capri Subdivision. The site is approximately 1/2 mile west of the intersection of Highway HH and Roger Road. The site is 1/2 mile north of the municipal limits of the City of Columbia. The area being subdivided contains 28 acres. This property is zoned A-2, (agriculture) as is all the surrounding zoning These are the original 1973 zonings. Water service will be provided by Water District #4. There is currently a 4" waterline on the north side of Highway HH up to the site which can only provide 200 gpm. Plans do exist to run a 10" waterline on the south side of Highway HH in the near future that should provide required flows. Sewage treatment is proposed to be from a central system to be located on the adjoining 15 acre tract to the south. The proposed system is a sand filter treatment system with S.T.E.P. collection systems for each property. The BCRSD indicates that they have no experience with the sand filter collector systems and are interested to see how the proposed system might function. The wastewater system location is indicated on the plat and at the time of a final plat should be included on a lot within the area being final platted. A stub street is required under the subdivision regulations, however, the Planning and Zoning Commission can waive this requirement in specific instances where they feel it is not necessary. It is our understanding that the developer is requesting this requirement be waived. Joint communications has disapproved the road name States Drive and so another will be needed. The internal roads within the development are proposed to be 24’ paved with 4’ shoulders on each side. A waiver of the traffic analysis is being requested. The planning staff concurs with the request, however, we defer to the public works department, as it is their area of expertise. This plat has 76 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval with the granting of a waiver of traffic analysis.

Ron Shy, Allstate Consultants and Chad Sayre, one of the owners addressed the Commissioners.

Mr. Sayre said it was their intention to construct their own home on lot 4. The tract to the south (15 acres) is owned by his parents. They have no intentions to do anything with that tract. There is a ten (10) acre tract to the east that shows a lagoon, residence and a garage.

Commissioner Grace asked how the 15 acres would be accessed? Mr. Sayre said when it was surveyed it met the subdivision regulation, it does have a 50’ access to the cul-de-sac.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked if it was the intent to turn the wastewater facility over to the sewer district? Mr. Sayre said he was not a fan of lagoons even though they are cheapest method. On a big tract the STEP system would be the most economical, and the sand filter is sub surface and not seen. In the long run, the Sewer District may take it over. By final plat time it may be a reality and be lot 4A. Commissioner Kirkpatrick said that he agreed with staff that the site for the wastewater system should appear on the plat.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked why he did not take the street back to the corner of lot 5? Mr. Sayre said basically because of economic reasons. He tried to keep the cul-de-sacs as short as possible.

Commissioner Abart asked who would be taking responsibility for the maintenance or continue maintenance on the 30’ utility access? Mr. Sayre said he had not talked to the Sewer District but he assumed that the Boone County Sewer District would.

Commissioner Abart made and Commissioner Marley seconded a motion to approve Cooper Creek Subdivision, preliminary plat. A-2. S15-T49N-R12W with staff recommendations:

1) a waiver from the requirement to provide a traffic analysis.
