Meeting Wednesday, the Porter Plan Commission scheduled a Feb. 20 public
hearing on Anthony and Rosalie Gardnerís request to divide 1.49 acres at
1140 Cardinal Ct. into two lots.
Bill Davies of Davies Surveying represented the petitioners.
The parcel, located north of Oak Hill Road between Waverly Road and Indiana
49, is served by utilities and the new lot created would be buildable under
the townís zoning ordinance.
Because itís considered a minor subdivision, both primary and secondary plat
approval will be sought at the Feb. 20 meeting.
The petition is the first brought under a new Porter zoning policy mandating
applicants pay $20 for the zoning secretary to provide them with the list of
adjacent landowners who by law have to be notified of a public hearing. Plan
Commission members approved the form to be used and asked that the GIS map
used to obtain the names be printed out, too.
Two other matters were addressed. By unanimous vote with member Erik Wagner
absent the commission accepted the recommendation of engineers Haas &
Associates to set the maintenance bond for Mineral Springs Villas at
$57,482. A 2004 letter of credit for Munson Place industrial park was
extended for another year.
Under 2013 reorganization John Kremke was elected commission president, Elka
Nelson its vice-president, Ken Timm the commissionís appointee to the Board
of Zoning Appeals, and Jessie Campaniello as planning secretary.
Kremke also was elected BZA president earlier in the evening. Henry Huyser
was elected vice-president and Campaniello was retained as BZA secretary.
New member Bill Stronks was welcomed.
During 2013 Porter Plan Commission members each will be paid $109.08 per
meeting and BZA members $60.15 per meeting.
