Advisory Planning Commission elected officers and conducted a preliminary
hearing for a subdivision at its meeting Thursday night.
Planners held a
brief reorganization discussion and decided that George Stone will continue
as President, and Fred Owens will succeed Jeff Trout as Vice-President. Gail
Murawski will continue as Secretary.
Southshore Development Group LLC sought a preliminary hearing on the Wabash
Avenue subdivision c/o Charles Ray. Ray requested that the case be forwarded
to the Plat Committee because the subdivision, as planned, will contain
fewer than five lots on fewer than five acres. Specifically, the parcel is
one acre that will be divided into four plots for duplexes.
Planner Stone noted
that the subdivision would be the only residential parcel in that area of
Grant Street and Wabash Ave. Town Engineer Mark O’Dell said the plans
include driveways that exit onto both Grant and Wabash, but mentioned that
the town won’t allow any residents of the subdivision to use Grant Street
for parking. This is an issue which the Board of Zoning Appeals may want to
consider, O’Dell added.
Ray said he is
planning to request three variances for the project from the BZA, and would
like to have those in order before appearing before the Plat Committee.
Planners voted unanimously to refer the case to the Plat Committee, which
will meet at a yet to be determined date.
