NEW BUSINESS

1.  Final Plat Phase 2, Catalina

Ron Lowery, of Delta Associates, Inc. was present to represent Turnberry Homes and Catalina Subdivision.  Commissioner Larry Felts asked whether Phase 2 of Catalina would include paving Brittain Lane.  This portion of work is required at 80% build-out.

Chairman Owens made a motion to approve the final plat of Phase 2, Catalina with the condition that performance bonding be set at $30,475.00.  Commissioner Larry Felts seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

2. Proposed Plan of Services for Annexation of Map 33, Parcel 93 and Map 33, Parcel 95 requested by owners Mr. Yazdian and Y & H.A. Tennessee General Partnership

Henry Laird stated that Mr. Yazdian has requested annexation of the area, which encompasses approximately 43.1 acres, lies adjacent to Burkitt Place subdivision and connects with Kidd Road.  All of this property is well within the Town’s approved Urban Growth Boundary, as future development, roads and water/sewer connection would connect via Burkitt Place.  Staff recommends this area be zoned Suburban Residential (SR).

Mr. Laird and staff also recommend revising language under “Existing land use” on page 2 and “Future Zoning” on page 3 of the proposed Plan of Services prior to passage.

Mr. Joe Epps, of Anderson, Delk, Epps and Associates represented the applicant.  He said Mr. Yazdian purchased the majority of this property in 2005 and is planning to develop single-family residential housing there in accordance with Town standards.  Plans will be submitted after annexation is completed.  Mr. Yazdian has contacted some adjacent property owners to find out whether these residents are interested in being annexed under the ordinance.

 After some further discussion, Chairman Owens made a motion to recommend the proposed Plan of Services with amendments suggested by Henry Laird on pages 2 and 3. Commissioner Bob Haines seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.
