Motion by Chairman Bench to approve the minutes of March 22, 2017. Motion seconded by Engineer Breinholt. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, Manager Warnke – aye. Motion approved.
3. New Business:
a. Discussion and consideration for 2 lot subdivision – Steve Batis
Steve Batis noted both lots will be about half an acre. The property has a protection strip owned by Frank Vit from Snowville. There is curb and gutter on the south but no sidewalk. The Board spoke of the need for curb and gutter and sidewalk on both sides. There was talk about a fee-in-lieu and the need to acquire the protection strip from Mr. Vit. Engineer Breinholt noted the easement needs to 15 feet along the road and 7 ½ feet along the side lot. He also spoke about the holding strip and improvements.
b. Discussion and consideration of Preliminary Final Subdivision Plat for Holmgren Estates East Phase 5 – Lyle Holmgren
This item was not discussed.
c. Discussion and consideration of Spring Hollow Subdivision Phase 1
This change adds a phase line. Chairman Bench noted the Development Agreement states the Developer shall honor, within one year after the first home is constructed, completion of club house. Remaining hard surface common recreation areas as shown on the map and perimeter fencing shall be constructed and completed after 15 building lots are sold or 36 months from the date the final plat is recorded. These items are specific to The Legends.
It states access to easement on Lot 1 must remain open. Director Fulgham said he does not need a hard surface on Lot 1 as the manholes are at the street and on the trails. He will need access through the trail corridor. Chairman Bench commented the original plat listed Public Utility Easement (PUE) but this one does not. The note about PUE’s should be put on again. Engineer Breinholt said the common areas need to be owned by a Home Owners Association (HOA). He does not know any other way to handle them. The lots (parking and trail areas) should be called parcels and should be dedicated to the HOA. There must be an easement but Director Fulgham noted the requirement for a hard surface can be removed. The gate will be fine.
Motion by Director Fulgham to approve Phase 1 of Spring Hollow Subdivision with noted changes to the language being recorded on the plat. Motion seconded by Manager Warnke. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, and Manager Warnke – aye. Motion approved.
d. Walk ins*
There were no walk ins.
Engineer Breinholt suggested the roads around the proposed new school be 66 feet wide to allow for traffic going both directions while cars are parked on the street. The curb could be narrowed back to 60 feet at the intersection. Chairman Bench called Jim Christensen with Box Elder School District on the phone do discuss. Mr. Christensen noted it would require new engineering. He asked to be put on the agenda next week. Engineer Breinholt noted there is not a back-up way to enter the school. There should be another access in case of emergencies. The notes talked about this item on the Preliminary Plate Review.
Director Fulgham wondered what has been recorded in Spring Acres Phase 5. Chairman Bench noted it has not been recorded. Mr. Allred has a silent partner that may help things move along. Mr. Olsen is coming to the end of his loan and would like to finish up and be able to move into his new home.
