At the time,: I was extreme) bus tr ing to get some pressing 'i 9 ,. y Y Y (i work done between budget meetings with .Executives. You have probably been informed by Tom Brymer that the Executives met and made changes to :.how they are doing business. This meeting was spurred by a need for us to find ways to accommodate each other's need . As as resu t of this meeting, one. of the decisions made. was that the Legal Department would no longer be taking walk in traffic. ,' The Legal Department is now requesting hat appointments be made in all but emergency situations, Additionally, the Legal Department is now. asking that .all re nests be made in writin .Had thin olic that all re nests be forwarded in writing ~ q g p Y q .been in place, it would have avoided duplicative work. For example, in the last two months I have. answered this eery question on two separate occasions, once for Elrey and once for Jim. To be specific, the current ,developer had stepped into the shoes of the previous developer. As uch he now has the same ..rights and responsibilities of the previous developer with regard tO these subdivisions.:The approved plats subdividing the .parent - tract required the construction of thatroad to Holleman Drive... The Planning and Zoning Commission does not have to approve a plat that does not provide for the construction ~~ of the road. Additionally, you can require a construction guarantee for the construction of the entire road., I would point out that it was my recollection that Elrey did not intend ~ to require more than a driveway to the lot. in the adjoining subdivision. I would recommend that you visit with him in this regard. k ~ Vllith regard to the.

Neither plat .was filed for. record and the property has remained vacant. The previous plats provided for access from Thomas tc~ Holleman via this property and an adjacent subdivision. This preliminary plea. eliminates that connection and provides a cul-de-sac. There_s existing right-of-way in the adjacent subdivision where the. connection was to occur. The street was not' built at the time of the adjacent -subdivision development, but was to be fiuilt with ths.phase. with this-plat and the: lack of connection there is a lot in the adjacent subdivision that will be without access. Access should be provided. with the .finale plat of :.this. property either by guarantee car by construction. At a minimum a drive from Holleman to the lot in question wild be sufficient. ~~ ~ ,~ . .Impact studies show adequate water availability and adequate sewer capacity for these 171ots. Final design information concerning the floodway ~.nd detention area will be provided with the final p at but preliminary analysis shows the propdsed detention area will be sufficient. The impact studies state that some of the residential structures will consist of pier and beam foundation. A note should be placed on the plat to inform lot buyers and the City's permit office of`this, F ~: Several ;concerns were expressed at the P&Z meeting znd prior regarding sanitary sewer problems in the area.. These lets will tie into 112 inch line that was repaired two years ago and has more than adequate r capacity for this development according to the impact...studies. Another line in the area was found to be k. in need of repair this summer and will be addressed as part of the City's normal maintenance program. k. €i ~: The entrance to ahe subdvs-ion is a boulevard with entrance and exits. on either side of the boulevard.
