PLAT REVIEWS

 

1. Waters Edge Estates Plat 8. S3-T48N-R12W. R-S. George H. Ousley, Jr. owner. J. Daniel Brush, surveyor.

Planner, Bill Florea, reported that this property is located on the west side of Lake of the Woods Road between St. Charles Road and State Route PP. It is currently occupied by one single-family dwelling. The property consists of one platted lot and a portion of another platted lot that has been amended by survey. It is the desire of the property owner to combine the lots into one lot for the purpose of building a detached garage. The request to vacate and replat was approved by The County Commission.

The lot currently has direct access to Lake of the Woods Road. This re-plat will result in a reduction in the number of potential vehicular trips, therefore, a traffic study is not warranted. Right of way sufficient to provide a 50-foot half-width right of way is being dedicated along the frontage of this plat. The Board of Adjustment has granted a variance to the right-of-way dedication along the northern 50 feet of frontage where the right of way dedication tapers from 17 feet to 1 foot.

The property is in the City of Columbia water service area.

The home is connected to a public sewer system.

The property scored 81 points on the rating system.

Staff recommends Approval of the plat.

Vice-Chairperson Fugit asked whether they are adding a lot and asked what they are doing through this plat.

Bill Florea explained that they are combining two lots. The owner wishes to build a detached garage but due to the way the existing house sits on the lot, the garage would have laid over the property line, so they are combining the lot in order to build the garage south of the existing house.

Mr. Piest wanted to add for the record that public works does not approve of the variance that was granted with the change of right-of-way. The Board of Adjustment granted a variance for a lesser right of way dedication. An additional seventeen feet was required for where the house sits.

Commissioner Smith made and Commissioner Morgan seconded a motion to approve Waters Edge

Estates Plat 8 with waiver request.

2. The Woodlands Plat 5. SS27-T48N-R12W. A-R. Rhodes-Payne Properties, Inc., owner. Ronald G. Lueck, surveyor.

Planner, Bill Flora, reported that the property is adjacent to and east of the existing Woodlands subdivision, north of New Haven Road and west of Rolling Hills Road. The area of the proposed subdivision is approximately 124 acres. There are two existing wastewater lagoons on the property. Both serve single family residences located off the property. A preliminary plat was approved on this property in August, 2000. The current request is to revise the preliminary plat by extending Turkey Trail Drive south to intersect with New Haven Road.

Access to the property is from Turkey Trail Drive to the west, New Haven Road to the south and Cottage Lane to the east. A traffic study submitted by the developer assigns roadway classifications within the proposed subdivision and assesses the impact of the development to existing roads. An updated traffic study was submitted which, analyzes the changes in traffic distribution and road classification.

Boone County Public Works and their consultant, Bucher, Willis and Ratliff have completed an analysis of the traffic study. Their conclusions are as follows:

Lots 158-161 have frontage on New Haven Road, which is designated as an arterial on the Major Thoroughfare Plan. A note restricting access to New Haven from those lots is on the preliminary plat and should be carried over to the final plat.

The property is within the Water District 9 Service area. There is adequate water for both domestic use and fire protection. The Boone County Fire District and Water District 9 will determine the location of fire hydrants. The water district has requested that the developer grant waterline easements, specifically to the district, over location of the proposed roadway and utility easements. This encumbrance of future right of way is not in the public interest and is not acceptable to the County. A condition addressing this issue will appear in the recommendation section of this report.

The developer proposes to install a STEP system, through which septic tank effluent will be pumped to the El Chaparral facility, which is operated by the Boone County Regional Sewer District. The district has commissioned a study of the capacity of the El Chaparral system. The study indicates that with minor modifications, the El Chaparral system does have capacity for The Woodlands Plat 5. There is a conceptual agreement in place between the developer and the sewer district that requires the developer to pay the cost of all system improvements. The current operating permit granted by the Department of Natural Resources will need to be revised. The sewer district recommends that no final plat should be recorded until DNR issues the revised permit.

A report issued by the USDA/NRCS suggests that the drainage ways, which are vegetated by native timber, be left in their natural condition and that the old-cropped areas be seeded to a good grass cover such as fescue.

The existing lagoons on the property do not meet the setback distance of 75 feet from the proposed lot lines.

The property scored 71 points on the rating system.

Staff recommends approval of the plat subject to the following conditions:

1. All roads internal to the development shall be built to the Local-Minor standard with shoulders except as follows:

2. Improve the full length of Cottage Lane to local-minor standard with shoulders. The developer is responsible to obtain all necessary easements and/or additional right of way.

3. The developer must demonstrate that sight distance requirements are met for the proposed intersections of Turkey Trail Drive and Timberwolf Trail Drive with New Haven Road.

4. Place a note and graphic on the final plat indicating that access to New Haven Road, from any lot that abuts it, is prohibited.

5. Prior to the recording of any final plat, the developer shall provide documentation that the Department of Natural Resources has issued the revised operating permit for the El Chaparral Wastewater Treatment System.

6. Prior to platting lots 153 and 174 as shown on the preliminary plat, the lagoons on lots 153 and 174 shall be removed.

  1. Any existing or proposed easements that will fall under the proposed road right of way within the plat must be vacated prior to recording the final plat. The developer shall provide documentation that no easements exist under the proposed right of way within the plat at the time of recording.

Ronald G. Lueck, Marshall Engineering and Surveying. Mr. Lueck stated this revised preliminary plat is being submitted with a modified road lay out accessing New Haven Road. It shows an increase of one additional lot over the approved August preliminary plat. And a revised lot arrangement between the east end of Gopher Court and the west end of Cottage Lane. If the west end is shortened on the end of Gopher Court, due to a ditch crossing and took a length of roadway that the applicant intends to install in that area, and insert it on to the west end of Cottage Lane, where there is no pavement right now, it will hook up with the current Cottage Lane pavement up to the Rabbits Run intersection. Then we added the cul-de-sac on that end of the lane.

As to the water issues, the applicants met with Water District # 9 and they are in agreement with issues that the Water District requested be done.

As to the sewer issues, the developer is going to pay for all the modifications listed for El Chaparral’s lagoons. The Sewer District Board agrees with the process in plat 5.

John Payne, stated that he believes that there is a power-struggle between Water District # 9 and the County. As to condition number 7, no easements have been given to anyone on this land since he’s owned it. The reason to re-submit this, was to cut the traffic down on Winding Trails which Public Works has acknowledged. It was going to be cost prohibitive and hard to go back and widen existing roads. Regarding the private lagoons, those lagoons will be taken out rather quickly because there has been an easement given to Jack Hollingsworth, so he can hook up to the force main from where he is building on New Haven Road. Eventually the other property owners will have to hook up on to the other lagoon on lot 174. Mr. Payne states he now owns the property that was once owned by William Hisle and his wife and has no problems with the lagoon coming out. Those lagoons are on a legal easement but neither one meet the current County standards. Mr. Payne’s real concern is a revised operating permit for El Chaparral. It depends on the Sewer District and how fast they address it, their independent engineering study that they had done was with the same result that Mr. Payne’s engineers have told them since 1992. El Chaparral has the capacity without doing upgrades. But he has agreed in concept to pay for the upgrades to that lagoon system. Those same upgrades were recommended in earlier studies that Mr. Payne’s engineers conducted. Applicant would rather the final plat not be totally dependent upon the revised permit being received by the Sewer District, because it is out of his control on timing.

Planner, Bill Florea, stated that it was his understanding, that the operating permit needs to be revised before the Sewer District can provide service to the Woodlands plat 5. Mr. Florea stated that’s what he’d been told, if that is true, then there is no sewer service until that permit is in place. Mr. Florea would recommend going with that condition.

Darren Fugit asked applicant about condition number 7.

John Payne stated he did not think it was correct and asked that Bill Marshall address the issue.

Bill Marshall, with Marshall Engineering, stated that both reports from Schafter, Kline, and Warren, indicated that the current lagoon is adequate to take on all the new flow. The only question is, are they going to upgrade the new discharge permit and make stiffer requirements. If they do that, then some of these upgrades will be necessary, as far as the current situation, it currently could take on the whole thing. Perhaps the Commission could hold back a second plat because there are going to be two final plats. The second plat could be delayed until such time as the new discharge permit is issued. But the existing permit on that particular facility is due in July 2001. DNR is not known for it’s speed in issuing permits and probably will not issue the permit until July 2001. Mr. Marshall thinks it would be a great imposition on Mr. Payne to wait until that time to get a final plat through. He believes if someone were here from the sewer district’s engineering, they would state the same thing, they want Mr. Payne to be held responsible in case the new permit issued needs to have upgrades in order to meet new requirements. Mr. Marshall’s discussion with DNR entailed that the people who were going to be writing the new permit indicated they did not anticipate any additional requirements over the existing requirements. He stated they discussed the possibility of ammonia limits on the stream and DNR indicated that there was not adequate flow from that particular facility, even with his development, to add that to the requirements. That was the only thing that was questionable.

Bill Florea, read a section from a letter dated November 1, 2000, addressed to Stan Shawver from Tom Ratterman, General Manager of the Sewer District. "Item number 3. An October 13, 2000, preliminary report by Schafter, Kline and Warren, the sewer district indicates the treatment capacity is available to treat 285,000 gallons per day of wastewater at the El Chaparral lagoon with the current discharge limits. To treat this flow at El Chaparral will require some minor modifications, the Boone County Regional Sewer District and Rhodes-Payne Properties Inc. have a conceptual agreement that requires the developer to pay all costs of the modifications. This agreement will need to be entered in to by both parties prior to the recording of the plat. Furthermore, the October 13, 2000 SKW report will be finalized shortly and sent to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources as a basis for an operating permit modification. This plat should not be recorded until the revised permit is received from DNR."

Vice-Chairman Fugit asked if Public Works was okay with the road situation.

David Piest answered stating that he believed a memo was sent to Staff on the afternoon of November 16, 2000 that came from Bucher, Willis and Ratliff containing comments and recommendations.

 

Commissioner Sloan made and Commissioner Morgan seconded a motion to approve the preliminary

plat of The Woodlands Plat 5 with all staff recommendations.

3. Lake of the Woods South Plat 1. S10-T48N-R-12W. C-G. Lake of the Woods South LLC and Garry L. and Brenda Lewis, owners. James R. Jeffries, surveyor.

Planner, Thad Yonke, gave his staff report that the 8-lot plat is the first phase of the development and it is located just east of the Columbia City limits, immediately at the southeast corner of the intersection of St. Charles Road and I-70 Dr. SE. The property is zoned C-G (General-Commercial). Property to the immediate south has a pending C-GP zoning that was approved in February of this year that will not go into effect until an appropriate review & final plan are approved. The property further south beyond the C-GP is zoned R-S (Residential-Single Family). Property to the east has pending approval for M-LP (Planned Light-Industrial) to the immediate north-northeast and pending C-GP to the east-southeast. These zoning will not go into effect until review and final plans are approved for these sites. The M-LP from R-S request was approved in March of 1999 the C-GP from R-S request was approved in March of 2000. Property to the west is zoned C-G and is an original 1973 zoning. To the north, across I-70 property is zoned C-G and this is also an original 1973 zoning. The 14.37 acres included in this request is vacant. The proposal includes 8 lots and 2 commercial roadways that will connect into the future phases of the development. The connection of proposed Bull Run Drive to St. Charles Road has a variance from the Road & Bridge advisory committee and County Commission since it does not meet normal spacing requirements. Access to the lots should be internal off proposed Bull Run Drive & Hunley Drive unless specifically approved. Two shared driveway accesses are proposed off I-70 Dr SE, one along the common lot lines between lots 1& 2 and one along the common lot line between lots 2 & 3. This is a condition of the preliminary plat approved in August of this year. Should any revision or replat to this final plat propose fewer lots than the preliminary, then these accesses may be further limited or even be required to be eliminated on the final plat. Lot 9 as proposed on the preliminary has been eliminated and can not re-proposed. Road improvements are being proposed for St. Charles Road including the addition of a turn lane. The developer has requested that the traffic study be deferred to a later point in the development. Staff concurs with this request provided the current proposed improvements are completed for this phase and it is recognized that the traffic study for the remainder of the development may trigger additional improvements to the roads around and contained in this current phase. These improvements will be required of the developer. Water service will be provided by Public Water District No. 9. The site is within the Columbia School District and the Boone County Fire Protection District. Hydrants and waterline up-grades meeting the commercial fire requirements are required. Sewer service is proposed to be from a new facility located within proposed Lake of the Woods South Plat 2. The facility will be designed to handle the entire new development and eliminate the existing facility serving the Lake of the Woods subdivision. Platting of the sewer facility lot will be required prior or concurrently with any final plat. The plat has 81 points on the point rating system. There are a number of issues with respect to existing easements and easements that may be recorded prior to the plat being recorded. County Public Works and the NRCS have concerns about erosion and stormwater run-off as well as the proposal of the wastewater system being proposed in the 100-year floodplain.

Staff recommends approval of the plat and postponement of the traffic analysis subject to the following 9 conditions.

  1. Any existing or proposed easements that will fall under the proposed road right of way within the plat must be vacated prior to recording of the plat and the developer must provide proof that no easements exist under the proposed right of way within the plat at the time of desired recording.
  2. That at most, the 2 proposed accesses points be allowed on I-70 Dr. SE and no direct access be allowed to St. Charles.
  3. That if any revision or replat is submitted that is proposed with fewer lots, that the 2 direct access points to I-70 Dr. SE can be limited or further lessened or be required to be eliminated.
  4. That lot 9 from the preliminary plat remain eliminated and that Lot 108 meet driveway spacing requirements and not create access problems for the other proposed lots.
  5. That the traffic analysis for the development be triggered with the next phase of the development.
  6. That adequate waterline and hydrants meeting the commercial standards of the Boone County Fire Protection District be provided for the development.
  7. That the central sewer lot be platted prior to or concurrently with the final plat for the 1st phase of this development submitted.
  8. That the drainage, stormwater, floodplain, and erosion issues be resolved to the satisfaction of the County Public Works Dept. the NRCS, and County Planning prior to recording. Any necessary easements required must be referenced and shown on the plat. Documentation must be provided by the developer that the NRCS is satisfied prior to recording.
  9. That required road improvements to St. Charles Road be worked out with County Public Works and County Planning and that it be recognized that the cost for these improvements is the developers cost.

Chad Sayre, All State Consultants, 7401 Fall Creek Drive, Columbia, stated that he was in agreement with the conditions, there has been a lot of communication about several of the issues with some of the easements. He believes all of that has been worked out.

He asked for clarification on Condition 5 and whether the next phase would be the next plat on the agenda.

Thad Yonke answered that the intent of Condition 5, is for plat 3. Plat 2 and Plat 1 are the first phase of development. It is in the record that this is Staff’s intent.

Vice-Chairman Fugit asked if the reason the traffic analysis is being put off, is so accurate analysis could be done, depending on what they are going to do.

Thad Yonke answered that the current phase of this development is only eight lots that already front or a portion of them front directly on to the access road which already carries significant traffic. St. Charles road at that point, already carries a significant traffic amount. When the preliminary plat was submitted, it was felt by Public Works and the Commission at that time, that the amount of traffic would probably be relatively negligible to warrant other improvements and when you consider that the developers have proposed doing improvements, that is the basis of traffic study. They’ve already proposed improvements that Staff required from the traffic study. Further improvements might be necessary when the entire development comes in but with only the eight lots, the amount of improvement that they were going to be doing at the intersection, it was felt that a traffic study could be delayed.

Woods South Plat 1, with staff recommendations.

  1. Lake of the Woods South Plat 2. S10-T48N-R-12W. R-S. G. Marian Weinman-Schultz Trust, owner. James R. Jeffries, surveyor.

 

Planner, Thad Yonke, gave his staff report that this 1-lot plat is a sub-phase of phase 1 of the development and is located just about 1/4 mile east of the Columbia City limits, approximately 400 feet north of Richland Road. The property is zoned R-S (Residential Single Family). Property to the immediate south across the creek is zoned A-R (Agriculture-Residential), as the creek line is the district boundary. The remaining property surrounding this plat is zoned R-S. All these are original 1973 zonings. The 8.58 acres included in this request is vacant. The proposal includes a single lot for the sewage treatment facility for this development and the surrounding area. This lot is in compliance with the preliminary plat approved in August of this year. Water service will be provided by Public Water District No. 9. The site is within the Columbia School District and the Boone County Fire Protection District. Hydrants and waterline up-grades meeting the commercial fire requirements are required for the development. Completion of the platting of this proposed plat for the sewer facility will be required prior or concurrently with any other final plat. The plat has 81 points on the point rating system. Until the remainder of the development is platted access to this plat will be by temporary easement which will need to be vacated when the rest of the development provides public ROW and easements to connect this plat into the remainder of the development. There are a number of issues with respect to existing easements and easements that may be recorded prior to the plat being recorded. County Public Works and the NRCS have concerns about erosion and stormwater run-off as well as the proposal of the wastewater system being proposed in the 100-year floodplain.

Staff recommends approval of the plat and postponement of the traffic analysis subject to the following 6 conditions.

  1. Any existing or proposed easements that will fall under the proposed road ROW within any plat of this total development must be vacated prior to recording of the appropriate plat and the developer must provide proof that no easements exist under the proposed ROW within the plat at the time of desired recording.
  2. That all easements for access and utilities not dedicated on a plat of the development be temporary in nature and be eliminated by acceptance of the public easements on the plat. The temporary easements being vacated with recording of the appropriate plat. Any private easement to remain or be a permanent easement will need specific approval by the County Public Works and County Planning Departments.
  3. That the traffic analysis for the development be triggered with the next phase of the development.
  4. That adequate waterline and hydrants meeting the commercial standards of the Boone County Fire Protection District be provided for the development.
  5. That the central sewer lot be platted prior to or concurrently with the final plat for the 1st phase of this development submitted.
  6. That the drainage, stormwater, floodplain, and erosion issues be resolved to the satisfaction of the County Public Works Dept. the NRCS, and County Planning prior to recording. Any necessary easements required must be referenced and shown on the plat. Documentation must be provided by the developer that the NRCS is satisfied prior to recording.

    Chad Sayre, All State Consultants 7401 Fall Creek Drive, Columbia

    Brian Connell, Architect, 801 Edgewood, Columbia

    Mr. Sayre showed a copy of the plat. He stated that he met with Frank Gordon, NRCS, and received a comment letter and complied with the content of his letter regarding setbacks on one of the streams that is not part of this plat. The floodway has been determined, there was the concern that applicant’s try to stay behind the tree line in the floodplain, which varies from 75 to 80 feet at the closest to 225 feet from the top of the bank in the floodplain.

    Commissioner Morgan asked if there was anything left to erode away after that land was stripped down a year ago. Mr. Morgan stated that he believes they are coming to the erosion issue late in the process.

    Applicant answered that the phase 1 initial clearing, grading, and landscape berm that was part of the C-P re-zoning have been installed. The question came as to the overall land disturbance plan. Mr. Sayre had showed a silt trap in a category two stream and that was the concern. Frank Gordon has asked Mr. Sayre for an approximately 80-100 foot total buffer to a category two stream. That was the change that Mr. Sayre has made. The erosion control measures are in place and he does have a land disturbance permit. It is a large enough site that there is a follow up meeting and a field visit. A field visit is scheduled for November 30, with Roy Wilford of the Department of Natural Resources.

    Applicant stated that visibility is not a problem on the site. Commissioner Morgan stated that neighbors complained about erosion due to the trees being stripped off.

    Mr. Sayre stated that this phase of the development regarding tree removal was pretty insignificant. There was a pond there that was removed and that was probably the most visible and unsightly due to things being deposited in the pond. That is disturbing when you drive by. Tree removal is very minimal.

    Commissioner Caruthers made and Commissioner Smith seconded a motion to approve Lake of the Woods South Plat 2 with the six conditions.

    5. Bentwood Estates Plat 2. S6-T50N-R11W. A-2. Michael and Joetta Connell, owners. James R. Jeffries, surveyor.

    Planner, Bill Florea, gave the staff report that the property is located north of the intersection of Bentwood Lane and Highway 124, approximately 2 miles north of Hallsville. The property is currently platted as Bentwood Estates Lot 3. A request to vacate and replat the lot was granted by order of the Boone County Commission. There is currently a house, detached garage and lagoon on proposed Lot 3B.

    Both lots will have frontage on and direct access to Bentwood Lane, a publicly maintained road. There will be no additional right of way dedicated by this plat. The applicant has submitted a request to waive the requirement to provide a traffic study.

    The property is in the Water District 4 service area.

    On-site wastewater systems will be used for sewage disposal. The existing lagoon is shown on the plat. A plan showing a suitable location for a lagoon on proposed Lot 3A is on file. The applicant has submitted a request to waive the requirement to provide a wastewater cost-benefit analysis.

    The property scored 34 points on the rating system.

    Staff recommends approval of the plat and waiver requests.

    Chad Sayre, All State Consultants, 7401 Fall Court Drive, present, no concerns.

    Commissioner Sloan made and Commissioner Smith seconded a motion to approve Bentwood Estates

    Plat 2 with waivers.

  7. Golf Boulevard Subdivision Block 2. S2-T48N-R12W. R-S. George and Ann Hansen, owners. Ronald G. Lueck, surveyor.

Planner, Thad Yonke made his staff report that this 2-lot minor plat is located on the east side of Golf Blvd. The site is approximately 1000 feet north of the intersection of Golf Blvd. and St. Charles Road. The site is approximately 1 mile east of the municipal limits of the City of Columbia. The area being subdivided contains 1.01 acres. This property is zoned R-S (Residential-Single Family) as is the surrounding property. All of these zonings are the original 1973 zonings. The site is in PWSD #9 service area; however, it is in an area that has a territorial agreement with the City of Columbia. PWSD # 9 indicates that water service will be provided by the City of Columbia. Sewage treatment will be from the BCRSD with ultimate treatment from the City of Columbia. This site is part of the Pin-Oak neighborhood improvement district. It is important to note that the BCRSD has informed us that since the Pin-Oak NID assessment was fixed on the parent tract that if either of the lots in this plat defaults on the NID payment both lots may be in jeopardy. Additionally, a sewer main extension is required to serve proposed lot 29A. This extension will need to be approved, plans for construction approved, and construction completed and acceptable to the BCRSD prior to recording the plat. The owner has requested a waiver of the requirement for traffic analysis. Staff concurs with this request and recommends that the waiver be granted. The site is in the Columbia Public School District and the Boone County Fire Protection District. This plat has 78 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval of the plat and waiver request subject to the following condition:

  1. That the BCRSD approve the completed sewer extension and that documentation that the extension was constructed according to approved plans and is acceptable and approved by the BCRSD be provided to the County Planning Dept. prior to recording. Since no engineered cost estimates were provided with the initial submission, bonding is not allowed.

Ron Lueck, Surveyor, 300 St. James Columbia, MO

Mr. Lueck stated that this is the eighth or ninth plat in this 40-lot subdivision that divides one of the 200-foot wide lots in half. It will make two, one hundred-foot wide, twin lots out of the property.

Payment has been made in full to the neighborhood improvement district. So that should not be an issue regarding default on one lot or the other.

Commissioner Smith made and Commissioner Caruthers seconded a motion to approve Golf Boulevard Subdivision Block 2. with waiver request subject to the Staff's condition.

7. Eibel. S25-T50N-R14W. A-2. Charles and Donna Eibel, owners. Donald E. Bormann, surveyor.

Planner, Thad Yonke, made his staff report that this three lot minor plat is located at the immediate northwest corner of the intersection of the southernmost of the two intersections of Bethlehem Road and State Route E. The site is approximately 2&1/2 miles southeast of the Municipal Limits of Harrisburg. The property is currently zoned A-2 (Agriculture) as is all the surrounding property. These are all the original 1973 zonings. The request encompasses 9.53 acres out of a 66-acre parent parcel. There is currently a house, lagoon, and shed on proposed lot 3. The other two proposed lots are currently vacant. The site is within the Harrisburg School District. The site is in Consolidated Public Water Service District #1 and there is a 4" waterline on the property currently. Fire hydrants are not required at this time by this plat. However, any additional platting of the parent tract will trigger the hydrant and waterline upgrade requirements. The site is in the Boone County Fire Protection District. Sewage treatment is proposed to be from individual on-site systems. The County/City of Columbia Health Dept. will need to approve any sewage system. The developer has requested a waiver from the traffic analysis, and cost benefit analysis for on-site wastewater systems and staff concurs with this request. The proposal rates 36 points on the point rating scale.

Staff recommends approval of the plat and waiver request subject to the following condition:

  1. That the joint Boone County/City of Columbia Health Dept. approve any on-site wastewater systems and that the systems meet all county standards.

Don Bormann, surveyor, 101 N. Allen, Centralia, stated that the owners of this land live across the road from this proposed plat. They are in the process of building a new house on this tract, which has nothing to do with these three lots.

Commissioner Sloan made and Commissioner Morgan seconded a motion to approve plat of Eibel Subdivision with staff recommendations.

OLD BUSINESS

Director, Stan Shawver, reported on recommendations forwarded to the County Commission from last months Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. Regarding the re-zoning request by Di Dan Properties to re-zone from A-1 to A-2; The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of that request and went before the County Commission and they upheld the recommendation.

All plats went as recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

NEW BUSINESS

Director, Stan Shawver stated that David Mink, Director of Public Works, has taken over the position from David Piest as Planning and Zoning Commissioner.

Mr. Shawver also reported that Ora Ramsey, Staff Member has resigned as Administrative Coordinator, and stated that she has done an excellent job, and her presence will be sorely missed. Paula Evans has taken over the position of Administrative Coordinator and will be sitting in on future meetings.

Vice Chairperson Fugit stated that he spoke with a local surveyor who commented that he thought the county was getting large enough to begin holding January meetings. Mr. Fugit asked the Commission members for any comments regarding this matter.

Commissioner Sloan asked the rational for this situation.

Stan Shawver, Staff, commented that the by-laws stipulate that there are to be no January meetings due to the fact that the month of January usually consists of hazardous weather.

 

 

ADJOURN

Being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:13 p.m.
