Staff Review Comments MEMORANDUM April 22, 2004 TO: Planning and Zoning Commission FROM: Spencer Thompson Email: sthompson @cstx.gov SUBJECT: PRELIMINARY PLAT for VILLAGES OF INDIAN LAKES Item: Consideration, discussion, and possible action on a Preliminary Plat for the Villages at Indian Lakes consisting of approximately 144 lots on 1400 acres generally located at the south end of Arrington road in the City's ETJ. Applicant: Paul Clarke, Agent for Smiling Mallard Development Company Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends approval of the Preliminary Plat with Staff Comments # 3. Item Summary: This item is for consideration of a Preliminary Plat in the City's ETJ for the Villages of Indian Lakes. The Commission approved a Master Development Plan, a Master Preliminary Plat and Phase 1 Final Plat for Indian Lakes in the last few years. More recently the Commission approved Final Plats for Phases 1, 2 and 5. This item is being brought back to the Commission since changes are being planned for the subdivision that do not match the previously approved Preliminary Plat. The plat shows conservation areas to comply with the project's Corp permit. Chaco Canyon Drive will meet maximum cul -de -sac length by connecting the street in Phase IV to future phases. Comprehensive Plan Considerations: Land Use Plan: Shown as rural. Thoroughfare Plan: Mesa Verde is shown on the T -fare plan as a minor arterial. Parkland Dedication: None in ETJ. Attachments: 1.

Select a name for the street stubbed out to the southeast along Chaco Canyon Drive. This street is required in that it establishes the Chaco Canyon cul -de -sac as Tess than 2000 -ft to meet City ordinances. 2. Additional comments will be returned at the Final Plat of each phase as to easements and other minor details which are more practical to be addressed at that time when more detail is provided. Reviewed by: Spencer Thompson Date: April 23, 2004 BRAZOS COUNTY 1. It appears Chaco Canyon Drive extends across the emergency spillway of the dam. In order to construct this roadway as a public street the County will need additional information, construction drawings and drainage information.

City and County Review No. 1 Response 6,14.0 The following is a response to the city review comment letter dated March 4, 2004 for the 00, Preliminary Plat of Indian Lakes: ENGINEERING 1. Plat submitted not to scale as required by Subdivision Regulations. No variance requested. The plat was not submitted to a reasonable engineering scale based on the recommendation of McClure Engineering since the plat is only in the review phase of the acceptance process. We will present the plat to the Planning & Zoning Commission at a reasonable engineering scale that will fit on a 24" by 36" sheet. 2. The plat does not match the submitted Phase I plat and cannot be approved as such. See comments for Phase I as they apply to this plat. The comments /suggestions you presented for Phase I will be addressed prior to the plat's submittal for Planning & Zoning approval. The plat will reflect these changes. 3. Phase II, Lot 14 Block 5 does not meet minimum lot width. No variance requested. Phase II, Lot 14, Block 5 has been renamed "HOA Common Area ". This change will be reflected on the Plat submitted to Planning & Zoning. 4. HOA lots 8 and 15 do not meet minimum lot width as required. No variance requested. We are unsure as to the locations of HOA Lots 8 and 15 referenced in the comments. All HOA lots will meet the required minimum lot width once the plat is submitted to Planning & Zoning. 5. Staff received construction plans for Phase V but no Final Plat was submitted. A plat will have to be submitted in order to dedicate ROW and easements. The construction plans for Phase V were submitted with Phase II since, due to our development sequence, the Phase V street will be constructed under the same contract as Phase II streets. A Final Plat for Phase V will be submitted shortly. Indian Lakes, Preliminary Plat Page 1 City & County Review Response BTU No comments provided. BRAZOS COUNTY ROAD & BRIDGE No comments provided.
