3. New Business:
a. Discussion and consideration of approving a preliminary plat for Arbor View Subdivision – Micah Capener
Chairman Bench read from Manager Warnke’s notes and asked what type of fence will be installed between the trail and the development. Mr. Micah Capener stated he wasn’t sure yet if residents would like to be able to see the trail through the fence or not. Chairman Bench suggested Mr. Capener have that decided by the time the final is approved. Engineer Breinholt stated a fence will be required along the railroad and asked if the City is going to participate in fencing the trail. Mr. Capener stated the agreement stated the City would participate.
Manager Warnke also had a question about where the water meters will be placed. Director Fulgham stated they need to be placed on the backside of the sidewalk in a level place. Otherwise, part of the box will stick out and the other part will be buried. There would be no additional cost for this as part of the subdivision improvements is to stub the water line past the sidewalk already. The meter will just be placed on the other side with a shorter stub.
Motion by Director Fulgham to approve a preliminary plat for Arbor View Subdivision. Motion seconded by Director Christensen. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, and Director Christensen – aye. Motion approved.
Chairman Bench stated the next step will be a preliminary approval at the next Planning Commission meeting.
b. Discussion and consideration of approving a preliminary plat for Spring Acres Subdivision Phase 5 – Marc Allred
Mr. Ben Johnston stated the construction drawings were given to Engineer Breinholt with Phase 1 for the entire development. The only change that is going to take place in this phase is moving the manhole and placing a fire hydrant in the cul-de-sac. Mr. Johnston stated he will clean up the construction drawings and send them to Engineer Breinholt again. Chairman Bench asked about secondary water. Mr. Marc Allred stated they will continue on with the secondary water system.
Mr. Allred asked about the temporary turn-around. Director Fulgham stated the new City standard states the turn-around will be paved and suggested Mr. Allred make the turn-around standard road size where the future road is going to be so it doesn’t have to be re-done.
Engineer Breinholt stated a geo-technical survey will be required. Mr. Johnston asked what needs to be addressed on the survey. Engineer Breinholt stated the survey will identify bearing capacity for home footing design and geological hazards. Mr. Allred will also need to get an engineer’s estimate for improvements and an escrow account.
Motion by Director Fulgham to approve a preliminary plat for Spring Acres Subdivision Phase 5. Motion seconded by Engineer Breinholt. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, and Director Christensen – aye. Motion approved.
