b. Discussion of a concept plan for Crossroads Ranch – Micah Capener

Mr. Capener introduced Engineer Dan Turner from Providence. They discussed items from the Land Use Authority Board (LUAB) notes. They will address the storm water basin. Greg Hansen is doing the survey. Mr. Turner will be going out this afternoon to gather more information regarding slope and grade. He will also look at boundary lines. Mr. Capener noted they plan to put a nice entrance sign. They discussed the sewer, ditch, and double frontage. The circulation roads cannot be reduced; they need to be regular size.

The investor plans on installing secondary water. They will need to shift water rights around and identify how many. Director Fulgham said the City has required the number of shares per acre based on what the Canal Company requires. Mr. Capener said they can determine how much water is necessary per lot by reviewing water usage from lots of a similar size. Director Fulgham noted that individual homes are not metered so the City has gone with the duty factor from the Canal Company. Engineer Breinholt noted a holding pond can be filled during their water turn.

There is a ditch to the east which may need an easement. The investor would like a gravity fed sewer line put in the front yards not in the road. The line would be maintained by the HOA (Homeowner Association). The City would like drivable access so they do not have to go onto private property. Engineer Breinholt noted the City would still be called regarding issues and noted it would be a huge headache. It should be in the road. Director Fulgham said to have a privately owned sewer they need to go through a lot of State Regulations. Usually when there is a privately owned sewer, they own the streets, water, and everything which is not the case here.

c. Discussion and consideration of Site Plan for Tremont Center Phase 3 – Micah Capener

Mr. Capener said they want to build the northeast building first. There are three spots left on the sign on Main Street. Hopefully Results and Greer’s will go on it. There will also be a digital sign with the grocery store. Manager Warnke asked for a bigger landscape plan they can review.

Mr. Capener noted things have been shifted to accommodate 4 cars in the drive-thrus. They will have it noted on the plan. Manager Warnke noted they need an additional five (5) feet of backup for the ninety degree parking. They were waiting to put it in at a later time because they planned to have curb and gutter but Mr. Capener will have Adam Mackelprang add the additional feet for parking and do the curb and gutter now. They discussed the location of the fire hydrant in relevance to the dumpster and the need for a curb to protect it. The utilities should be moved to another location so they are not under the dumpster. The LUAB will send comments to Mr. Capener. Mr. Capener noted he is trying to work out some issues with the Canal Company.
