- Public Comment
∙ Topkick Trail – Mr. Cartwright presented initial information prior to item being heard next month. Lot split of 4 lots, 2 will have access off Topkick and 2 off an unnamed road running along the railroad. The fire chief checked Topkick but not the other road, and police chief checked both. The fire chief advised there is some concern about the road that runs parallel with the railroad, which lies in the flood plain. These lots are located in the County. Planning recommends the applicant speak with County Planning prior to presenting at next month’s meeting. Planning also recommends that the applicant show a sufficient turnaround for the lots that are accessed from the road that runs along the railroad.
∙ Mark Helwig – 352 Tanner Rd. inquiring about a driveway width extension. Request will cut into setback due to the way the property was developed and the original driveway already cuts into the setback area. Was requesting 10-ft width; PC advised 9’ (normal driveway width) would be better to minimize encroachment to the extent possible. A variance request will be necessary, but PC does not preliminarily see any issue with a variance request due to the nature of the property involved. Applicant was advised to get a variance application from City Hall.
∙ Snyder Development requested input for rezoning approximately 58 acres from R-E to R-1 on North Lillie Lane at the top of the dead-end road; looking at potential residential development project. PC reviewed proposed information and provided input that there does not seem to be any issue with a rezoning request for that particular area—surrounded by R1 already. Some concern was expressed by Maddox that the proposed development only proposed one way in and one way out from North Lillie Lane.
Yoes motion to Adjourn. Carnes Second. Passed 4-0. Meeting adjourned at 7:40 PM.
