3. New Business:
a. Discussion and consideration of approving a Preliminary/Final Plat for Pheasant Run Subdivision Phase 2 – John Simmons
Mr. Ben Johnston stated it will cost the Simmons’ $10,000 to pave a cul-de-sac temporary turn-around and stated they would rather do a hammerhead turn-around, which is allowed by the Fire Code, as it will only cost around $3,500 to pave. Engineer Breinholt stated that maybe the hammerhead turn-around should be the City’s standard from now on. Mr. Johnston stated to asphalt the entire circle turn-around would be a waste of $10,000 as it would be unusable by the end of construction.
Engineer Breinholt stated the temporary turn-arounds don’t normally get used by drivers to turn around. Director Fulgham stated they are used by garbage trucks and snowplows. Chairman Bench stated fire equipment will use them as well, but as far as the homeowners, they probably won’t use it. Engineer Breinholt asked if the hammerhead turn-around was okay for the snow plows. Director Fulgham stated they are as it gives the driver a place to back up without worrying about hitting a mailbox, curbs, or cars parked there. Mr. Johnston stated the hammerhead turn-around would be easier for snowplows anyway.
Chairman Bench stated there is a hydrant installed and asked if it needs to be moved. Mr. Johnston stated it meets the required spacing distances. Chairman Bench stated it is essentially at the end of the line. Director Fulgham stated he is okay with it being that close to the end of the line as they can still keep the water fresh there.
Director Fulgham asked about the sewer manhole. Mr. Johnston stated he is showing extending the manhole to just past the asphalt. Director Fulgham stated that would work. Mr. Johnston asked if they would need to install a clean-out. Director Fulgham stated they should just plug it.
Chairman Bench stated as the subdivision progresses, there will be a development agreement created for the chip seal and Engineer Breinholt will need to give his final approval on the construction drawings.
Motion by Engineer Breinholt to approve the Final Plat for Pheasant Run Subdivision Phase 2. Motion seconded by Director Fulgham. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, and Director Fulgham – aye. Motion approved.
