Mr. John Geary of 1045 Brittain Lane said he was concerned about the addition to Brittain Downs.  He said a dam on his property abuts the Brittain Downs subdivision, and he is concerned about it being compromised.  He also said that when it rains heavily, the area floods.  Mayor Alexander said that this could be addressed when the item of new business comes up on the agenda.

6.  NEW BUSINESS

A. Bent Creek PUD Master Concept Plan Amendment to Allow Active Adult Residential Housing

Eric McNeely represented the applicant, CK Development. Chairman Owens moved to approve the Bent Creek PUD Master Concept Plan Amendment, which would allow it to be considered by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.  Commissioner Robert Haines seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.

B. Advanced Safety and Industrial Supply Site Plan, Revised

Adam Seger of Dale & Associates represented the applicant.  Henry Laird reported that the applicant had revised the site plan and increased the amount of flood storage.  The applicant met the recommendations from the Design Review Committee and asked to be able to submit a Master Signage Plan at a later date.

Mr. Seger explained the changes to the building design to accommodate the Storm Water Appeals Board recommendations, and that there would not be any uncompensated fill.  The floodplain will be accounted for with a compensatory cut.  Henry Laird mentioned that the plans had been approved by Tom Allen, with Neel-Shaffer.

Commissioner Haines asked about the required parking spaces.  Mr. Seger explained that parking is tight, but that there is a designated parallel parking spot near the building in addition to the 22 spaces in the parking lot.

Chairman Owens made a motion to approve the site plan for Advanced Safety and Industrial Supply Site Plan, Revised.  Commissioner Felts seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

C. Brittain Downs Addition Sketch Plan

Henry Laird explained that the original sketch plan was submitted for approval in 2007.  The applicant has resubmitted the sketch plan, since the original approval was only valid for one year.  Applicant has agreed to staff recommendations made in 2007.

Joe Epps, of Anderson, Delk and Epps represented the applicant.  Mayor Alexander asked Mr. Epps to address Mr. Geary’s question about the pond and dam on his property.  Mr. Epps explained that Mr. Geary’s property abuts the Brittain Downs subdivision property, not the property in question for the addition.

Town Attorney Bob Notestine and Town Engineer Don Swartz clarified that the concerns for the drainage and dam on Mr. Geary’s property should be addressed by Town Staff, since the property under consideration by the Planning Commission is a separate project.

Mayor Alexander asked whether there were any drainage concerns with the Brittain Downs Addition parcel.  Mr. Epps confirmed that there are no such concerns with this parcel.

Chairman Owens made a motion to approve the Brittain Downs Addition Sketch Plan.  Commissioner Haines seconded, which passed unanimously.
