Henry Laird reported that a public hearing was held on proposed Ordinance 12-01 to rezone Yazdian and Green properties along Rocky Fork Road and Nolensville Road. Also, the board approved releasing bonds and accepting streets for maintenance in The Reserve at Bent Creek Subdivision and in Section Four of Benington Subdivision with funds to be held in escrow to secure remaining work for sidewalks, curbs repair, and street trees.
B. Report to the Commission regarding staff review of regulations controlling flood plains
Laird reported that he, Town Engineer Don Swartz and consultant Tom Allen had each reviewed the flood plain regulations storm water management regulations, zoning ordinance, subdivision regulations, and the Land Use Policies Plan, both text and map form and found no problems or areas of weakness that would allow developments to cause any harm to properties either on-site or off-site of a new project. Mr. Allen did mention in his letter to the Planning Commission that EPA will be releasing a National Storm Water Rule (rule) in 2012 that may require some changes to the Town’s existing regulations and ordinances.
Commissioner Radley mentioned he felt the original request for review by Commissioner Haines included a concern over confusion of residents in the town and the communication of development goals of the Town.
